COM image Attack Cards appear in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories as a type of playing card which allow Sora and Riku to use their weapons. Each card can be used alone to perform normal attacks, or combined with other Attack, Magic, Summon, Item, and Friend Cards to perform special attacks and spells that are otherwise unavailable. Many of these combinations are reuses or variations of the special attacks from Kingdom Hearts, such as "Strike Raid" or "Ragnarok". Attack cards can be identified by their red borders.

Sixteen of the Attack Cards in the game represent the Keyblades and Soul Eater that Sora and Riku used in Kingdom Hearts; the only Keyblades missing are the "Jungle King", which was removed when the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs forbade Disney from reusing Tarzan in the game, and the Keyblade of People's Hearts, which was left out due to storyline issues. The original set of Attack Cards also includes two Keyblades that were introduced in Kingdom Hearts Final Mix: "Diamond Dust" and "One-Winged Angel". Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories introduces six additional Attack Cards based on Keyblades that Sora obtained in Kingdom Hearts II, which can be obtained as game completion bonuses. In the Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX re-release of Re:Chain of Memories, four of those Attack Cards were removed and instead replaced with four of the Keyblades that Roxas obtained in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days.

Riku is limited to one type of Attack Card, so a special leveling bonus, Attack Power (AP), is available to him at certain levels in Reverse/Rebirth.

In Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, two sets of non-regular attack cards can be used by both Sora and Riku. During the battle with Zexion, Zexion can steal Riku's Attack Cards and replace them with fake versions of the Soul Eater. Sora can also use a special version of the Kingdom Key during the Bumble-Rumble mini-game.
