Scratch Cards are collectible items from Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time. Gained by defeating certain enemies and attacking certain objects, Scratch cards are adorned with a piece of art and a scratch-off game on one side, with the description of the card on the other.
Each scratch card is different by exactly how the card must be scratched to win. Some cards require the player to uncover and match certain patterns, while others have the player clear a path to a goal.
If the scratch card is won, the player will be awarded the ability to activate an ability to use for their characters that they normally cannot use. This ability differs depending on the card and can be activated at any time. For example, a winning "Scratch the Square Series" (one of the most common cards) makes it available for everyone to double jump (usually, it is only available for Selkies).
The different series of scratch cards are as follows: 21 Series, Number Series, Cave Capers Series, Magic Stack Series, Cats Series, Follow the Trail Series, Building Block Series, Chocobo Series, Scratch the Square Series, Clavat Series, Yuke Series, Selkie Series, Lilty Series, Moogle Series, and Pedestal Series.
- Interestingly, on the scratch cards that he appears on, Layle is referred to as "The Hero".
