Ghost Rare, known as Holographic Rare in the OCG, is a rarity introduced in the TCG version of Tactical Evolution. Ghost Rare cards initially had a very shiny silver lettering for the card name, much like a Secret Rare, with some colors removed from the card image. Newer cards now have name text similar to an Ultra Rare, with a 3D holographic image (starting with "Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode" in Crimson Crisis). The body of the monster itself seems split, making the image look 3D. If a light is shone on the card image, the color changes. As a result, it can be hard to make out the monster on a card colored this way. At a certain angle the image's color is somewhat restored with the same colors as the normal card just in a dimmer version. The overall effect of these changes is a pale, "ghost-like" appearance to the card art, especially when scanned. A hybrid between Ghost Rare and Gold Rare cards can also be found in the "Gold Series: Haunted Mine" packs. Apart from four exceptions ("Rainbow Neos", "Star Eater", "Felgrand the Divine Dragon Knight", and "Mobius the Mega Monarch"), all Ghost Rare cards are cover cards.
There are currently only 27 Ghost Rare TCG Cards: "Rainbow Dragon", "Elemental HERO Chaos Neos", "Rainbow Neos", "Honest", "Stardust Dragon", "Black Rose Dragon", "Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode", "Power Tool Dragon", "Ancient Fairy Dragon", "Majestic Star Dragon", "Majestic Red Dragon", "Black-Winged Dragon", "Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste", "Shooting Star Dragon", "Odin, Father of the Aesir", "Junk Berserker", "Number 17: Leviathan Dragon", "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon", "Number C39: Utopia Ray, "Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon", "Heroic Champion - Excalibur" "Number C32: Shark Drake Veiss", "Number 92: Heart-eartH Dragon", "Number 107: Galaxy-Eyes Tachyon Dragon", "Star Eater", "Felgrand the Divine Dragon Knight", and "Mobius the Mega Monarch".
