A cover card is a card shown on product packaging, normally on the front of the packaging. Cover cards are often highly sought-after or visually appealing cards included in the product.

In Booster Packs and Structure Decks, the cover card is always an Ultra Rare card, except for a lapse in the TCG versions of the final four GX-era packs (Tactical Evolution to Light of Destruction) where the cover card is a Secret Rare as well as a Ghost Rare/Holographic Rare, in exception of "Yubel - The Ultimate Nightmare" (these alternate rarities follows in step with the OCG). It returns to original format matching with OCG starting with the first of the 5D's era packs (The Duelist Genesis) and continued until the latest two packs, Judgment of the Light and Shadow Specters, where the cover card has changed to being a super rare in the set.

Starting with Series 2, the background color has followed an eight-color trend. The order in releases is green, yellow, red, orange, blue, purple, black and white. This phenomenon has come to be known as the "Booster Pack Rainbow" or simply "The Rainbow".
