Parallel Rare (パラレルレア Parareru Rea, or simply Parallel) is a generic term, used to refer to cards where the entire card surface is holographic (that shows up as an even "haze" on most scans). There are four types of Parallel Rare:
- Normal Parallel Rare: Normal black or white title, normal picture. Also known as "Parallel Common."
- Super Parallel Rare: Normal black or white title, holographic picture.
- Duel Terminal Normal Parallel Rare: Only found on Duel Terminal cards, these are based on Normal Parallel Rares, but with a different Parallel Coating design.
- Ultra Parallel Rare: Gold title, holographic picture.
- In the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime, Sylvio Sawatari's "Dart" deck is stated to only contain Parallel Rare cards.
