Shadow Adds a shadow to text. {{Shadow|I am the Ultimate Lifeform}} I am the Ultimate Lifeform
! / !! Creates a pipe (|) or two (| |).

I doubt the average wiki editor would need these, but it's necessary if you're creating advanced templates using the if parser function. {{!}} has to be placed within those functions instead of regular pipes. I'm not sure why {{!!}} is needed, but including it here anyways.

{{!}}

{{!!}}
