Limited cards are labelled Ltd. or Res. on the bottom right corner of the card. Both types can be used only on a special slot in the player's deck. This slot, one in the beginning, is the one on the right end of each of the five player's decks, and can be recognized from its multicolored animated edge. As the player's collection expands, achievements are gradually fulfilled, and through some particular achievements, after winning a specific amount of matches in versus mode, the number of special slots will increase to a maximum of four slots. The only slot left with a normal edge is the one on the left end of each player's deck. A special slot can be used for any kind of cards.
Cards from achievements can be claimed only once, but after the player gets one, more of the same card can be won from other players if they carry it. A limited card the player still didn't unlock from achievements, will be darkened out in the Spoil screen and cannot be claimed. Other than by fulfilling achievements, another source of Res.-only cards is the shop, where the player, using points obtained from the Final Fantasy Portal App and the Triple Triad itself, can exchange points for some limited cards. Achievements were not changed by later expansions, and more limited cards were added into the shop.
To fulfill some of the achievements, what is requested is not strictly mandatory; some other ways also work. As the player will fight, win and unlock more opponents even in higher difficulty modes, they will bring more difficult rules, but in the end only six out of the nine available rules are used in solo mode. Thus, a fast and short way is to play in versus mode where the player can select which rules to use. Cards can have different rank patterns; instead of generating the new cards with those collected from solo mode, the player can try to win those of 2nd and 3rd generation directly from other players to still will count for fulfilling the related achievements. It is advised to never exchange points for a card that has been claimed already; all the cards from the shop are Res.-type, and then cannot be used to generate a new card with a different rank pattern. Some of the achievements will grant the player an extra Crystal; there are 13 of the kind for beating one of the 13 initial opponents in each of the three available difficulty levels.
