The Bright Card (also known as the Brilliant Card) is a special item needed to get into Grate Guy's Casino in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. The casino is found in Bean Valley, near Land's End after entering a pipe and jumping 3 times near a Chomp Chomp. The card is attained by playing and winning Knife Guy's guessing game. To win the card from Knife Guy, Mario must win his juggling game a total of twelve times in a row. After beating Knife Guy at his game and winning a variety of Mushrooms, Mario gets the Bright Card. An elderly Toad in the Marrymore inn is willing to pay a high price for this rare card; he first offers 100 coins, then five Frog Coins and finally ten Frog Coins. In Legend of the Seven Stars, it can also be sold at a shop for 777 coins - in the remake, it is categorized as a Special Item that cannot be sold. Mario cannot get another Bright Card after throwing it into the Waste Basket or selling it; replaying Knife Guy's game will only reward him with a random type of Mushroom. The player can buy the card back from the old Toad, but it will cost 15 Frog Coins.
