Ultra Rare (Japanese:
In earlier pre-constructed decks, both Starter and Structure Decks, there is one card (except Structure Deck: Dragonic Legion/Dragons Collide Structure Deck which contains two) printed in Ultra Rare. Later Structure Decks, such as Structure Deck: Master of Pendulum/Master of Pendulum Structure Deck, have more than 1. These are usually the featured cards of the deck and the highlight of their collection. However, these cards are always predetermined, so it's entirely for appearance and not rarity.
The chance of getting Ultra Rare cards in Duelist Packs is 1:12. The chance of getting Ultra Rares in Booster Packs was originally 1:24, although this was changed to 1:12 later on. In 2016 this ratio was once again changed to 1:6.
Ultra Rare cards are often more valuable than other cards, because they are harder to find and usually more useful.
