Naruto cards are small playable cards designed with different characters or ninjitsu moves based around the popular Japanese cartoon "Naruto." Originally invented as an advertisement and merchandise gimmick for the television show, the cards allow fans to battle it out with the game that uses the cards.
Each card features artwork from the television show, often portraying the colorful characters from the world of ninjas, including Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, Hinata and the rest of the squad. The game uses a system of points to determine the winner. Certain move cards deduct points from an opponent, so the objective is to lose the least amount of points by dealing the most damage the fastest.
