Template:DocumentationHeader Template:ArtistHeader

A fictitious artist is a person (or group) that does not exist in the real world but is in one way or the other of discographic relevance - e.g. characters from a movie - and therefore exists as a valid artist in the database. The actor, voice actor, or creator that exists in real life isn't directly credited to the releases or track but is linked to the fictional artist through a PerformanceNameRelationshipType.

This could lead to a chain of characters such as with the members of Spinal Tap: Christopher Guest performs as Nigel Tufnel who is a member of Spinal Tap. As stated in DontMakeRelationshipClusters, and to avoid potential problems, make sure the chain is linear and doesn't take shortcuts: for example, Christopher Guest is not a member of Spinal Tap.
