One Piece trading cards have been licensed and printed by Bandai since 1999, comprising many different sets and series. While some exist purely for collection and promotional purposes, others feature full-fledged collectible card games.

Many of these cards are randomly distributed through Bandai's Carddass machines, though dedicated starter and booster sets also exist for several series.

Carddass Hyper Battle

Bandai began releasing its first One Piece cards in late 1999, as part of its new Carddass Hyper Battle (カードダスハイパーバトル Kādodasu haipā batoru?) game.[1] These cards closely followed the premiere of the Toei anime, and mostly reproduced its screenshots and concept art for illustrations.

The Hyper Battle line would ultimately last into early 2002, adapting characters and plot elements up to the early Arabasta Arc (in addition to various promotions for every theatrical film up to Chopper's Kingdom on the Island of Strange Animals, and every video game up to Grand Battle! 2).

Carddass Masters

Bandai's long-running Carddass Masters (カードダス マスターズ Kādodasu masutāzu?) line featured several One Piece sets between 2000 and 2001. These, like the Hyper Battle cards, drew their illustrations mainly from anime screenshots and concept art; however, they had no game mechanics, and instead encouraged collection by forming "treasure maps" and other gimmicks when laid in 3x3 grids.

Card Game (2002)

In 2002, Bandai launched a standalone One Piece card game, featuring a far more elaborate layout and ruleset as well as more original illustrations. This series lasted until early 2005, and even saw a short-lived English-language edition.
