Cards are recurring weapons in the NiGHTS series, which are used by bosses.
NiGHTS into Dreams
In NiGHTS into Dreams, Jackle uses tarot cards to attack NiGHTS in his boss battle. Jackle throws razor-sharp tarot cards that slow NiGHTS down on impact. The player needs to remove his cape to make him vulnerable, by evading his projectiles and dashing into him. Once he's lost his cape, he will no longer attack, and NiGHTS will be free to damage him by touch-dashing him.
NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams
In Journey of Dreams, Chamelan uses playing cards to attack NiGHTS in his boss battle. Chamelan will stay hidden behind a giant curtain during the whole battle, and will make cards which spin swords to chase and attack NiGHTS. The cards are invincible to all of NiGHTS attacks and they will only disappear if they hit NiGHTS.
Chamelan's cards may also appear at random in the Nightopian Garden.
- Sonic Lost World: Jackle uses cards once again during his boss battle in the Nightmare Zone DLC of Sonic Lost World. Jackle will shoot a card at Sonic who must shoot the card back at Jackle three times. Otherwise the card will hit the ground and create a blue energy orb which will run across the stage and damage Sonic if he touches it.
