Vivre Card Infobox
Japanese Name: ビブルカード
Romanized Name: Biburu Kādo
Official English Name: Vivre Card
First Appearance: Chapter 157; Episode 101
Manufactured: New World

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. 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. The torn piece will point to and move towards the largest piece of the Vivre Card (as shown with Rayleigh's card) while the largest piece will point towards the person the Vivre Card was designed from (as shown with Ace's card). However, if a Vivre Card begins to burn on its own, that means that the life of the person who gave the Vivre Card is vanishing.[1]

List of Known Vivre CardsEdit

  • Portgas D. Ace: The very first Vivre Card was received in Alabasta to help Luffy find his brother.[2] It had diminished quite significantly due to Ace being captured and in danger of execution.[1][3] 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 turned completely to ashes.[4]
  • 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.[5] 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] Just before the Straw Hats leave Sabaody Archipelago for Fishman Island, Shakky gives them a Vivre Card.[7]
  • Zephyr: Ain uses a Vivre Card to find her sensei after he was sent flying away by the explosion that destroyed Firs Island.[8]
  • Byrnndi World: World left behind a Vivre Card for Boa Hancock to track him down after capturing her sisters as hostage.[9]

Unknown Vivre CardsEdit

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".
