* ''Manga/RozenMaiden'' has a live toy for this - a clown that throws cards just like shurikens - and they actually hurt the protagonist.
* Hisoka from ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', an AxCrazy MonsterClown, kills people with thrown cards. It's implied that he gives them lethal force using FunctionalMagic. His Bungee Gum also gives him total control over the cards' movement.

** ''KamenRiderStronger'' villain General Shadow's schtick is cards. He throws 'em as weapons, plays card games with the other villains during downtime, and he escapes any losing battle by disappearing behind a zillion cards that he tosses into the air. More recent teamup movies with their improved special effects allow him to ''turn into a giant, spinning, razor sharp card."

* Spider from ''VideoGame/MegaManXCommandMission.'' In addition to straight damage, the different suits each have a different effect (2 hits, hits all enemies or boosts money or experience gained upon kill) when he has at least 75% WE left. There's also the Joker, which has no minimum WE requirement but like the name suggests, it randomly uses one of the 4 effects mentioned above.
** In ''Mega Man and Bass'', there's Magic Man, who throws two cards that look like they're shuffling themselves, and then it comes back to him like a boomerang. If he hits you, he steals some life. After [[PowerCopying beating him,]] you can do it yourself, but without the draining ability. You CAN pick up items and aim upwards with it.

* 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]].
