Starlight Rare is a rarity in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game. It debuted in Rising Rampage.

Starlight Rare cards have the same horizontal holographic foil pattern as a Prismatic Secret Rare, but applied to the whole card rather than only the artwork. The only areas of the card to which the foil is not applied are the card text box, empty Link Arrows, and portions of the artwork.


The existence of this rarity was not mentioned until after the physical release of its debut set, Rising Rampage. It has appeared in three main series Booster Packs, where it appears as an alternative rarity for several cards that are also available in a standard rarity in that set.

From Rising Rampage to Ignition Assault, there are four Starlight Rare cards per set. The cards are selected so that there is one of each original rarity: Rare, Super Rare, Ultra Rare, and Secret Rare. In future sets, there will be five per set.

This rarity initially did not have an official name, only being described as an "alternate foil" in official sources.[1] On the Official Card Database, this rarity is labelled as Prismatic Secret Rare, although they have been officially confirmed not to be Prismatic Secret Rare.[citation needed] In January 2020, the rarity was confirmed to be known as Starlight Rare at Yu-Gi-Oh! Community Day 2020 in Germany.[2]
