Card types are a gameplay characteristic of each card in the Trading Card Game.


The card types determine the various gameplay mechanics that a card may have or how they are used (ex: Summon, or Cast).

The following is a list of card types (without a supertype).
(Card types marked with a star don't exist without a supertype.)

When viewing the front side of a card, each card in the game has one of these card types printed on their card type line.

  • In the case of Twinpacts, a single-sided card may have 2 cards (A creature half as well as a spell half). However, Twinpact is not a true card type.
  • However, in the case of double-sided cards such as a Psychic or Dragheart, the card type on the front and backside may differ.

While cards are physically used to represent them, Seal is treated as a Keyword Action rather than a card type.

Types such as Evolution", "Psychic", "Exile", "Dragheart", "Forbidden", "D2", "Neo", "Gacharange", or "Orega" aren't a true card type as they don't exist on their own without the other card types and are instead known as supertypes.

Card abilities often refer to card types. For example: Terror Pit's ability says "Destroy one of your opponent's creatures". This ability mentions the card type of creature specifically, which covers any variation such as an Evolution Creature or Psychic Creature.

Survivor, Wave Striker, Gods and Twinpacts can be easily mistaken by a card type due to how they may be referred to by the effect text of other cards, however, they aren't a card type. They are only races and/or keyword abilities.

Creature cards or core cards under an evolution creature lose their card type. This prevents them from being counted as a number of creatures in the battle zone.
