Battle Cards are the cards that a player picks at the start of a turn in a Battle. They determine which side is attacking first and which side is defending first. The only way to know what the Battle Cards are before choosing one is by using a Reveal.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
In Oukoku IV[edit | edit source]
The cards are large, and they have a weapon and a shield. If you get the sword you go first, and the shield makes you go last.
In 3-2-1[edit | edit source]
This time, the cards are smaller. They are redesigned, and the shield has an up arrow on it.
In Ikari No Tekken[edit | edit source]
Battle Cards are Flipping Coins. They have a sword and a shield engraved into them. Look closely at the coin to see if you go first or last.
Dokapon DX[edit | edit source]
A shield and a sword are hiding in the chests. You can also use reveal to see the color easily. Red = First, Blue = Last.
Dokapon the World[edit | edit source]
The Battle Cards are back and redesigned. They flip after pressing Circle.
Dokapon Journey[edit | edit source]
The Sword and Shield have returned. First now says "Attack", and Last now says "Defend". Reveal now fully shows the cards to you, and you can select a card instead of swapping.
Dokapon UP! Mugen no Roulette[edit | edit source]
Unlike previous games, the player doesn't have an opportunity to pick a battle card at the start of a battle. Instead, one is assigned to the player at random.
Strategies[edit | edit source]
There are no actual strategies (except for using Reveals). Thus, they are almost luck-based.
