Vivre Cards, also known as the "paper of life" (命の紙 Inochi no Kami?), are a special form of paper made in the New World.[2]


Vivre Card Usage

How Vivre Cards are used.

A Vivre Card is made from part of a person’s fingernail which is then made into paper. It is completely waterproof and fireproof, but can be torn and given to a cared person that one would be separated from.[2]

The torn pieces will point to and move towards each other no matter where they are in the world, allowing one to always be able to tell in which direction the other person is.[2]

True to the name "paper of life", Vivre Cards also display the life force of their owner. If the life of the person who gave the Vivre Card is vanishing, the card will begin to burn.[2] It will grow back to its original size if the person recovers.[3]

List of Known Vivre CardsEdit

  • Portgas D. Ace: The very first Vivre Card was received in Alabasta to help Luffy find his brother.[1] It had diminished quite significantly due to Ace being captured and in danger of execution.[2][4] Upon rescue from the execution scaffold, the card has been restored fully, but when Ace took a direct hit from Sakazuki through his stomach and died, the card completely turned to ashes.[5]
  • Lola's Mother: This card was received from Lola of the Rolling Pirates. She gives Nami a Vivre Card of her "momma" in case they need her assistance in the New World.[2] Here the importance of the Vivre Card is fully explained.
  • Silvers Rayleigh: After the trouble they caused on the Sabaody Archipelago, Rayleigh gives each member of the Straw Hat Pirates a Vivre Card to find him once their ship has been coated.[6] After the Summit War, he leaves his own piece with Shakky while he goes to see Luffy, so that the rest of the Straw Hats would still be able to find their way back to Sabaody.[7][8] Shakky later gives the piece to the the Straw Hats as they are about to leave Sabaody Archipelago for Fishman Island, because Luffy, who hadn't yet shown up at the time, would be following it.[9]


Translation and Dub IssuesEdit

  • "Vivre" is the French word for "to live".
  • Some translations refer to it as "Biblicard", possibly due to its Japanese pronunciation "Biburukādo".
