Cardcaptor Sakura Wiki
First Appearance (Manga): Chapter 46 (Clear Card)
First Appearance (Anime): Episode 14

Mirage (Kanji: 幻影, Katakana: ミラージュ, Romanji: Mirāju) is one of the Clear Cards that was captured after the mysterious clearing of the Sakura Cards. Prior to Chapter 46, it was an anime-exclusive card.


In card form, Mirage has the appearance of a white fish with a beak, it has long fins where the right fin is white with the left having a gold underside and its tail blending towards the color blue to give the sense of illusion. Above its head is a small yellow star. Before it was captured it appeared as a glowing multi-colored bubble.

The background on of the card is a landscape of mountains and clouds; a reference to, "蜃気楼" an alternate kanji spelling of "Mirage".

Magical Abilities

Illusion Creation: Mirage has the ability to create almost realistic illusions which can only be seen by the target, such as animal features on humans.

It is also capable of engulfing its targets into a made-up landscape that is formed depending on the thoughts that the spell-caster has at the time or, at the time of its capture, by its selected target. Along with being able to manipulate the thoughts of those under its influence.

It is thus similar to the Illusion card.



  • The kanji at the top of the card: 幻影 (pronounced Gen'ei) means 'phantom, vision, or illusion' in Japanese.
