List of Ranking Tags

This article is about the general list of ranking tags found in pixiv.


List of ranking tags is a list of tags in pixiv created specifically for pixiv, and pixpedia. These tags function as a reference on what tags should be attached, and what shouldn't.

pixiv tags in this category worked differently from the ones seen on other imageboards, as all of these tags do not work as a "category" but rather it reflects the opinion of a user towards the particular artwork itself. Hence tags in pixiv are worded differently than what is tagged on other imageboards.

While it will not function properly in English as of now, it is recommended for all users to use their Japanese counterpart when tagging other user artworks.


These tags (list located below) that are given to illustrations are considered as particularly striking by the users. It is important to note that these tags are given by the users who viewed your work and not yourself as these tags reflect the feelings of the users. Additionally, tags that are attached by the original artist are labelled with an asterisk *], while those attached by users are tags without asterisks.

While the list below are tags contain mostly praises and positive remarks, it is usually subjective as these tags are given to the artists by the users, thus opinions are depending on case by case basis. There are also biased cases where custom tags are given by people who adore the artist for certain reasons. Similarly, there are also cases where famous artworks went though heavy edits, which even cause some of the custom tags to lose its purpose.

Another thing to note would be the correct usage of "OO users bookmark" tags (tagged as "○○user入り"). These tags are given to illustrations that received a targeted amount of bookmarks from the users. These are also tags that are attached by the users and not the original artist. You might risk yourself getting your account suspended, or tarnish your image/reputation by attaching these tags yourself so please think twice beforehand. Similarly, you are also advised not to tag your artworks with your own name.

All problems mentioned above are usually solved by initiating discussions between each users through the comment function found below the artwork page (or even here, which is encouraged). Doing so allows you to convey your opinion and messages to the original artist as well about giving proper tags to an artwork. Civilized discussion is thus highly recommended.

List of Tags

The below list contain tags that are given by the users themselves. There are also identical tags with different meanings.

Tag translation is currently on pending status as some tags are directly translated from its Japanese counterpart. PLEASE MAKE SURE THE FOLLOWING TRANSLATION IS ACCURATE BEFORE MAKING ARTICLES ABOUT IT
