Item Cards appear in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories as a type of playing card which restock other playing cards. They can be identified by their green borders, which they share with Friend Cards. The seven Item Cards in the game represent the restorative items Sora found throughout Kingdom Hearts, but are used in a completely different manner; instead of restoring HP or MP, they instantly restock certain types of cards in the player's deck. Unlike the other types of playing card, Item Cards disappear from the deck after being successfully used, unable to be restocked, and they cannot be made into Premium Cards. They can also be used in various combinations with other Item Cards, as well as Attack, Magic, Summon, and Friend Cards to perform completely different spells unavailable in the other games. Many of these new combinations are Kingdom Hearts versions of traditional Final Fantasy spells like "Holy" or "Teleport".
Item Cards are available in both Sora's Tale and Reverse/Rebirth, and several bosses also use the cards. In Reverse/Rebirth however, only the Potion and Hi-Potion cards are available. Unlike Sora's Story these cards will only appear in Riku's deck within certain worlds in the game. Furthermore in Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories the majority of the worlds where these cards appear within Riku's deck have been changed to different worlds (excluding Castle Oblivion).
