DMR-17 Burning Dogiragon!!
Legend Rare is a rarity in the Duel Masters trading card game.
They are a new rarity introduced in DMR-17 Burning Dogiragon!! and replace Victory Rares as the top rarity. Despite their top rarity status, One box will always contain 2 legend rares making them much more easier to obtain than Victory Rares, giving new players without much money a chance to obtain extremely powerful cards. Legend Rares feature a gold "Legend" watermark above the Illustrator name in the card frame and also features a border colored depending on the card's civilization as well as full-frame artwork. If the Legend Rare is of multiple civilizations, then the border will have all of the colors corresponding to the civilization. The artwork may protrude out of the card border.
In even-numbered sets, there's a chance that 3 Legend Rares will appear instead of 2 and if this happens, one of the Legend Rares will always be a duplicate as there are only 2 types of legend rares in the set, and it will also replace a Super Rare from the box, possibly preventing the player from getting the Super Rares he wants.
Just like Victory Rares, Legend Rares feature secret versions which appear 1 every 4 boxes. The secret rare patterns are a "Chibi" version of the creature, a Dramatic Card-like version, and a Gold Version, while starting from DMR-19 the "Dramatic Card" version was replaced by a gold chibi version. A carton (12 boxes) will include all secret rares.
Forbidden Legend Rare
Forbidden Legend Rare is a new rarity that appears in DMR-19, seen on Forbidden ~The Sealed X~ / Dokindam X, The Legendary Forbidden. It is only seen on Forbidden Impulses / Forbidden Creatures and they tend to have more flashier artwork than regular Legend Rares. They seem to be signified with a narrow border with forbidden text on it, as well as broken rocks on parts of the border. The symbol for the rarity is the word "XLGND" written in forbidden text (xlegend). There are two versions of them; a regular, Japanese text version and a secret, forbidden text version. The regular version has the same packaging rate as Super Rares and the Forbidden Text version is much more harder to get, exceeding Gaiginga, Passionate Star Dragon in terms of rarity.
Final Forbidden Legend Rare
This is a type of legend rarity exclusive to a 5 in 1 card; FORBIDDEN STAR ~World's Last Day~/Dormageddon X, Forbidden Armageddon. It is higher than Forbidden Legend Rare, but functionally it is the same.
Like other Forbidden Legend Rares before it, the rarity was displayed in Forbidden Characters as legend, with a unique X symbol also featured in its card name.
- The border used for each civilization is the following:
- So far in all sets after DMR-17 and before DMR-23, there is always a Legend Rare that is at least part-Light.
- So far in each set there is at least 1 legend who is illustrated by NAKAMURA 8.
