* One of the main characters in ''Anime/ShinHakkenden'' wields diamond-edged cards. Quite effective, and made uber-awesome when he actually activates his jewel ability...in the last episode.
* This is a big part of the [[Manga/MagicKaito Kaitou]] [[Manga/DetectiveConan KID's]] schtick. He has a gun that's modified to shoot poker cards which can apparently slice through metal, and is such a trademark of his that [[OutOfCharacterAlert any Kaitou Kid using a normal gun is immediately recognized as an impostor]].

* In the ''StarTrekNewFrontier'' series, Burgoyne 172 learned this with normal playing cards and then upgraded to the rather harder isolinear computer disks used on Starfleet ships, taking out some Romulans with them.

* Kaiba disables a gun-wielding mook by tossing a card at him in an episode of ''Anime/YuGiOh''. He does it again in a later episode to prevent a Rare Hunter from killing Anzu (using his ''Blue-Eyes White Dragon'', no less...which disgusted Kaiba, who was hoping to draw a common card that so there'd be no risk of damaging ultra-rare ones[[note]]In the anime, there are only three Blue-Eyes White Dragon cards ''in the entire world''.[[/note]]).

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', minor villain Suzuka demands [[InsistentTerminology everyone call him "The Beautiful Suzuka"]]. When Koto calls him "Suzuka", he throws a playing card at her. She ducks, and the card skewers the head of the demon sitting behind her, killing him.

* The Trickster Mage OCC from ''{{Rifts}}'' is an interesting case; he was introduced in an April Fool's edition of ''The Rifter'' and wasn't intended to be a serious OCC. A mage whose only abilities seem to revolve around levitating playing cards, the Trickster Mage's arsenal would be pathetic... if he weren't so creative.
* ''GURPSSupers'' supplement ''Supertemps''. The super known as Dealer used a weapon that fired metal projectiles the size and shape of playing cards.
* ''{{Exalted}}'': A few Thrown charms allow you to throw cards (and pebbles and coins...) as though they were shurikens. An Exalt with these charms are rarely unarmed.

No relation to [[Fanfic/MyImmortal Voldemort's band]], Creator/FrankFrazetta's helmeted, axe-wielding {{Badass}}, or ''Film/{{Underworld}}'''s many vampiric assassins (Note: both franchises feature character(s) who share the same moniker), ''or'' the ParanormalRomance novel by Heather Graham Pozzessere.

Not to be confused with ArmsDealer or TheAggressiveDrugDealer. For cards that are a PortentOfDoom, see DeadMansHand. If the cards themselves have power, it's CardsOfPower. Note: This isn't real life but in an improbable situation it could be. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1ZGIN0UqJEz Ricky Jay]][[note]]Magician, Actor, Former world-record holder for the longest playing-card throw, and author of the book "Cards As Weapons"[[/note]] can be seen here throwing a normal playing card hard enough to pierce a watermelon rind. Now imagine if that was somebody's neck... Well, actually, you don't need to; the Series/MythBusters [[JustForFun/TropesExaminedByTheMythBusters had a go at this one]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=fvwp&v=AiE3in71YEo&NR=1 came to the conclusion]] that regular playing cards just don't have sufficient mass to cause any injury beyond a paper-cut. Of course, throwing a card at someone's face is going to make them flinch, but the same goes for [[AHandfulForAnEye a lot of things]].

* ''Series/MythBusters'' busted the "regular cards can be deadly weapons when thrown" part of this trope (with Ricky Jay once again making an appearance): even with a specially designed rig to throw the card faster than a human being, Jamie only reported mild discomfort.

* Card manipulation specialist Ricky Jay is famous for his ability to throw playing cards at great speed. He has even written a book called ''Cards As Weapons''. In his recorded special ''Ricky Jay and His 52 Assistants'', he demonstrates his skills by embedding cards into the skin of a watermelon.
