The Float (Kanji: 浮, Katakana: フロート, Romanji: furoto), is one of the fifty-two Clow Cards in the anime. Float is under Windy.


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.
