The Float is a Clow Card with the power to float anything in the air. It is aligned under The Windy.

It is one of the fifty-three Clow Cards in the anime.


In its card form, Float appears as a small, hot-air balloon attached to a winged basket. However, outside of its card form, it appears as a stripy, pink and purple balloon with small wings, independent of any strings or basket.


Float, as its name implies, likes to make things float. Float is a mischievous spirit, but it is also quite gentle and was easy for Sakura to seal.

Clow Cards arc[]

In the anime, Cerberus discovers Float when it starts levitating objects in the room of a little girl who had taken him in, including the girl, Akane, herself. Unfortunately, strong winds causing the Float to be blown away, high up into the air.

As a result, it caused Akane to almost be blown into the upper atmosphere. Cerberus had contacted Sakura previously via a fax machine, and she arrives just in time to seal Float away before it floats Akane above the atmosphere (Episode 15). Akane starts falling as a result, but Sakura uses Wood to cushion her descent.

Float is also used two episodes later, to get to The Erase card lying at the other side of the cave.[1]

Float is used again in episode 36 to help Sakura and Syaoran float above the snow that was summoned by The Snow card.

Sakura Cards arc[]

Float was transformed during Episode 57, when Sakura fell into darkness. She used it to stop her fall and return herself to the floor of the elevator.



  • The kanji at the top of the card: 浮, (Pronounced 'Fu') means 'floating', 'float' and 'to surface' in Japanese.
