There are three kinds of cards that players can scan:
- Special Cards: "Scan these cards to unleash an Ultimate Attack!" Scanning a special card summons the characters in the card and they perform Ultimate Attacks, which usually do a ton of damage and have very detailed animations.
- Equipment Cards: "These are how you outfit yourself for battle! There are three types of equipment: Weapons, Armour, and Shields." The player must equip three before embarking on a quest. Their equipment affect the player's stats. If players don't have enough equipment cards, they can borrow equipment.
- Monster Cards: "Scan these cards to call forth a monster!" Players must scan three monsters before embarking on a quest. If they don't have enough cards to scan, they can borrow monsters.
