Starlight Rare is a rarity in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game. It debuted in Rising Rampage.

Starlight Rare cards have the same horizontal holographic foil pattern as a Prismatic Secret Rare, but applied to the whole card rather than only the artwork, similar to the Platinum Secret Rare. The only areas of the card to which the foil is not applied are the card text box, empty Link Arrows, and portions of the artwork. In idea, this seems to replace Ultimate Rare, which is now used exclusively in OTS Tournament Packs.

The existence of this rarity was not mentioned until after the physical release of its debut set, Rising Rampage. It has appeared in every core series Booster Pack since Rising Rampage, where it appears as an alternative rarity for four cards that are also available in a standard rarity in that set. The cards are selected so that there is one of each original rarity: Rare, Super Rare, Ultra Rare, and Secret Rare (2 as of Eternity Code since Rare has been retired from standard boosters).
