How about an alias?

Not all official art is key visuals - it's more that one is a subset of the other.

The latter is simply something that is released as promotional material to show how an anime will look like before it airs (such as character designs or a poster showing several characters at once), while the first could be anything from manga covers to clean art of mobage cards.

    So you mean like concept arts, but for official material?
    Sure, this request makes sense then.

    Agreed. I started this tag because it was difficult to find key visuals otherwise with copyrights that have a lot of other kinds of official art.

    Well, kind of. I just wrote the wiki for key visual in order to clear the difference between it and the other tag you mentioned.
