Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Many Card Sharps may see their cards as useful tools, but this goes one step beyond that. Cards can, when thrown by the right hands, become a deadly weapon.
How (and why) someone is using cards as a weapon varies: it can be some form of Applied Phlebotinum, magic, control of kinetic energy, or even because the characters are just that good. Or they're a Paper Master and that's just what happened to be on hand.
They always make it look so easy in fiction, even though it's not so easy to throw a card this way in reality. (Seriously, try it the way any of the names below do so and see if it's as easy.)
May include boomerang powers and definitely causes Paper Cutting. And don't forget that they typically carry a clip of 55 of them (the 52 plus two jokers and the company card) in a case roughly the size of a pack of cards.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Very often overlaps with The Gambler, for obvious reasons, and Monster Clown, for not-so-obvious ones. In Japanese works, may also overlap with Phantom Thief.
The user might be, but isn't necessarily, a Card-Carrying Villain (sorry). Also likely to be a Card Sharp (with sharp cards), so the use of such a distinctive weapon may be the killer's Calling Card (we can do this all day). If they're so improbably good that the full house won't shut up about it, they're The Ace. (Yeah, we know, our card is marked. We can deal with it.) May or may not have Playing Card Motifs to go along with this.
No relation to Voldemort's band, Frank Frazetta's helmeted, axe-wielding badass, Underworld (2003)'s many vampiric assassins note both franchises feature character(s) who share the same moniker, or the Paranormal Romance novel by Heather Graham Pozzessere.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Not to be confused with Arms Dealer or The Aggressive Drug Dealer. For cards that are a Portent of Doom, see Dead Man's Hand. Cards of Power is when the cards themselves are powered.

Luxord of Kingdom Hearts II uses a deck of cards that can change size as a weapon. He throws them less and more often manipulates them into assaulting the hero Sora in the manner of a Paper Master. He also uses them as minions and can even transform Sora into a card.

Rein from the Assault Team of Best Student Council uses cards as her Weapon of Choice. The two other members use a Killer Yoyo and a bokken. Seeing as they're in an Absurdly Powerful Student Council, these things are a lot less lethal than the grown-up versions and are suitable for beating up some delinquents.

Obligatory Whateley Universe example: Chaka threw some playing cards into a man's legs in the last chapter of Ayla and the Birthday Brawl. Regular playing cards.
Not her first use, either. In an earlier Chaka story, she fights off an armed superpowered ninja with playing cards, before she gets out the fighting chain. We are talking about a mutant who can throw things like sewing needles with lethal accuracy.

Astrologians in Final Fantasy XIV use globes and cards to execute their spells and other abilities. If you decide to auto attack an enemy, the character will slice their target with the cards. Since Astrologians are healers, attacking with the cards directly will only do pitiful amounts of damage.

The Royal Flush Gang from Batman Beyond used high-tech devices disguised as playing cards in their arsenal (among other things). Mostly they seem to be small grenades, but there's also cards that are flashbangs, cards that turn into fancy red cloth that binds opponents, and one particularly special card meant for the Bat that's capable of blowing up a fair-sized hotel suite.

Dirty Pair:
In the novels (and the Adam Warren comics), Yuri carries a self-propelled throwing card with razor edges—better known as the "Bloody Card". Its only anime appearance was in the movie Affair of Nolandia where Yuri kills a whole crowd of mooks with it.
Only used by Yuri. Madam Barr uses one (with similar results) in OAV #6. Yuri also used it on a single mook in 005 Conspiracy. Yuri also used it in the Dirty Pair cameo appearance in the Crusher Joe movie.

Spider from Mega Man X: Command Mission. In addition to straight damage, the different suits each have a different effect (2 hits, hits all enemies or boosts money or experience gained upon kill) when he has at least 75% WE left. There's also the Joker, which has no minimum WE requirement but like the name suggests, it randomly uses one of the 4 effects mentioned above.

Batman:
Several versions of The Joker, notably the one from The Batman.
In Batman: The Brave and the Bold, he throws razor-edged playing cards at Wonder Woman in "Triumvirate of Terror!".
The Royal Flush Gang from Batman Beyond used high-tech devices disguised as playing cards in their arsenal (among other things). Mostly they seem to be small grenades, but there's also cards that are flashbangs, cards that turn into fancy red cloth that binds opponents, and one particularly special card meant for the Bat that's capable of blowing up a fair-sized hotel suite.

Kamen Rider:
In the final episode of Kamen Rider Decade, Tsukasa pulls this one off against Apollo Geist; especially noteworthy since his cards are key elements of his Transformation Trinket. For bonus points, they came right back to him.
Speaking of Riders, in Kamen Rider Gaim, in #3 Kaito once threw a card at a TV, shattering it! He tries to do this again in #15 to Ryoma Sengoku, but his assitant Yoko stopped the card mid-flight by throwing a pen at it.
Kamen Rider Stronger villain General Shadow's shtick is cards. He throws 'em as weapons, plays card games with the other villains during downtime, and escapes any losing battle by disappearing behind a zillion cards that he tosses into the air. More recent team-up movies with their improved special effects allow him to turn into a giant, spinning, razor sharp card.

Gambit, from the X-Men, uses his mutant power to turn ordinary playing cards into kinetic energy-charged bombs and apparently in other forms of media said energy can also be used to enhance their flight paths. He can do it to anythingnote  famous exploits include devastating a wide area with a bucket of nuts and bolts, finishing off a villain who had him totally immobilized by spitting exploding chewing gum in his face and pushing Rockslide towards a Brainwashed and Crazy Juggernaut, but likes playing cards since they hold over 52 "shots" in such small packages, they're very easy to obtain and quick to "charge", they're easy to conceal even from someone who knows how his power works, they explode with force just about equal to a standard grenade, and they're also stylish. In a nod to Real Life, they hardly ever slice cleanly through objects but embed shallowly in them. Then explode after flashing the trademark pink glow.

Oswald from The King of Fighters XI, to the point where he straight up follows Playing Card Motifs explained on the trope page itself. His LDM, JOKER, even has fifty-two hits. And one of his DMs (Four Suits), ideally, hits 21 times (Blackjack!). Unlike most examples however, he's much more focused on close-range-combat via knife-slashing with his cards as opposed to throwing them, as only 2-to-3 of his moves (including JOKER) involve actually throwing his cards.

Jonathan Creek once took out a man holding him at gunpoint with a playing card to the face; it didn't do much in the way of actual injury, but it did make him flinch and let go of his Human Shield and give the police an opening to take him down. He was able to hide it from the guy because of his card-palming skills - because that's the bit that seemed implausible... although Jonathan receives a copy of Ricky Jay's "Cards As Weapons" (see below) at the start of the episode and is seen practicing the throws in idle moments, so it's not utterly implausible. Just, you know, very.
Despite this apparent feat of accuracy, Jonathan later admits that he had actually been aiming for his balls.

Yomiko Readman from Read or Die is seen to be able to throw business cards with such force that they embed themselves in wooden ceiling beams, though this is less from her own strength than it is her ability to manipulate the matter of paper.

Final Fantasy:
Final Fantasy VI has Setzer the gambler and his thrown cards.
They're also used in Final Fantasy Tactics A2 by the Trickster class, and surpass bows and guns for the greatest weapon range.
Final Fantasy VII had an enemy named Death Dealer. The cards were semi-random, but the most dangerous one killed with a spell like Death.
The Lady Luck dressphere in Final Fantasy X-2 uses a deck of cards for the standard attack command.
Astrologians in Final Fantasy XIV use globes and cards to execute their spells and other abilities. If you decide to auto attack an enemy, the character will slice their target with the cards. Since Astrologians are healers, attacking with the cards directly will only do pitiful amounts of damage.
Final Fantasy Type-0 has Ace, who has cards as his weapon of choice; his base weapon is a gambler's deck, but he also has hanafuda and tarot decks as unlockables.

Some stores sell what's billed as playing card shuriken—metal rectangles, ostensibly sharpened on the edges, with pictures of a card on each one. Not quite the same as a real deck of cards. While they might not be quite as effective as actual shuriken, they still do the job better than normal paper cards ever could. And unlike real shuriken, the lighter weight and slimmer profile makes it possible to conceal more of them and with greater ease. While a single one might not be that deadly (unless you score a lucky hit to the carotid artery or jugular vein), playing a game of "52 Pickup" with them could be rather effective.

Hisoka, an Ax-Crazy Monster Clown, kills people with thrown cards. It's implied that he gives them lethal force using Functional Magic. His Bungee Gum also gives him total control over the cards' movement.

He does it again in a later episode to prevent a Rare Hunter from killing Anzu (using his Blue-Eyes White Dragon no less.

Kirby's Magician copy ability in Kirby: Squeak Squad allows him to do this.
Squashini in Kirby's Epic Yarn can strafe the stage with cards.

Shira from Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's has done this fast and hard enough to pierce a police helmet. Demack sliced through chains with a card. Basically, cards in this series are completely indestructible.

The Trickster Mage OCC from Rifts is an interesting case; he was introduced in an April Fool's edition of The Rifter and wasn't intended to be a serious OCC. A mage whose only abilities seem to revolve around levitating playing cards, the Trickster Mage's arsenal would be pathetic if he weren't so creative.

As mentioned above, Bullseye uses a card as a weapon in the Daredevil film. He doesn't use it to actually kill anyone, but it does leave a cut on Elektra's throat and stuns her long enough for him to finish her off.

Loki of Bayonetta 2 throws enchanted cards to destroy angels and demons, and has a few specialized cards with out-of-combat abilities like teleportation and erasure. They only work for him, as seen when Bayonetta throws one of his cards at an angel corpse to no effect.

Mega Man
Spider from Mega Man X: Command Mission. In addition to straight damage, the different suits each have a different effect (2 hits, hits all enemies or boosts money or experience gained upon kill) when he has at least 75% WE left. There's also the Joker, which has no minimum WE requirement but like the name suggests, it randomly uses one of the 4 effects mentioned above.
In Mega Man & Bass, there's Magic Man, who throws two cards that look like they're shuffling themselves, and then it comes back to him like a boomerang. If he hits you, he steals some life. After beating him, you can do it yourself, but without the draining ability. You CAN pick up items and aim upwards with it. It also the weapon that Dr. Wily is weakest against in the final battle.

Kingdom Hearts
Luxord of Kingdom Hearts II uses a deck of cards that can change size as a weapon. He throws them less and more often manipulates them into assaulting the hero Sora in the manner of a Paper Master. He also uses them as minions and can even transform Sora into a card.
In 358/2, whether as an ally or playable character, he focuses more on tossing and manipulating them and can even form a barrier out of enlarged cards.

Tokusou Robo Janperson loves doing this as a sort of Dynamic Entry. His JP Cards (5 kinds, the usual being light-colored and proclaiming "Janperson—Dedicate Myself to Justice") are metal and sharp and thrown by a robot on top of that, so they'll embed themselves in anything up to and including concrete pillars.

In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the aforementioned Gambit uses his kinetic energy manipulation powers to imbue cards with enough energy to knock Wolverine through a wall, though unlike in the comics they don't actually explode with the force of a grenade (a faint burst can be seen however). The cards also are clearly shown to be manipulated in flight path, showing that his energy manipulation has something to do with it.

Tubalcain Alhambra, a.k.a. The Dandy Man, from Hellsing telekinetically controls cards and manages to slice several bystanders into pieces with them. They also explode. The cards themselves are magical, too, as Alucard cannot instantly regenerate his wounds when hit by them. Neither can Alexander when Alucard uses them on him during their final battle after absorbing Alhambra.

In Yu Yu Hakusho, minor villain Suzuki/Suzuka demands everyone call him "The Beautiful Suzuki/Suzuka". When Koto just calls him "Suzuki/Suzuka", he throws a playing card at her. She ducks and the card skewers the head of the demon sitting behind her, killing him. He's notably the prototype for Hisoka above, except far less creepy and threatening. And doesn't share his . . . predilections.
