Policy is a term referring to the processes and rules observed involving the creation, editing, and management of articles on Sasukepedia as well as treatment of other users. This is to be distinguished from a guideline which suggests etiquette and practice to make management and presentation of Sasukepedia more consistent and streamlined.

Violating a Sasukepedia policy will at the very least lead to a page being edited to conform to policy. Edits or new pages that are created that do not conform to a specific policy are subject to change by another user (assuming that change conforms with policy) without expectation of appeal to an admin, as is all content within the site. However, it may also lead to the page being deleted or — for the worst offenses — it may lead to the poster being declared a vandal and become banned or blocked. Treatment of users who engage in destruction of content, harassment, or misuse of content (spam) is also governed by policy.

The following policies have been developed over time; mostly as consensus works between Sasukepedia administrators and users. A few are decreed by administrators.
