The Member Card (メンバーカード) or Gold Card (VIP Card in Shadow Dragon) is used in several Fire Emblem games to gain access to "Secret Shops" which allow the player to buy normally unavailable items such as rare weapons and class promotion items.
Typically, the member card is held by a unit that the player can either kill or recruit to obtain the card. In Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken, it must be stolen from an enemy Thief who appears in the southeast staircase on Turn 7 in Chapter 19E/20H. In Shadow Dragon, it is dropped by a generic Bishop in chapter 17. Also, the map on which the Member Card is obtained, it typically contains a secret shop(s). In other situations, it is carried by the Beowulf archetype unit, though this only happens in Fire Emblem: Binding Blade and Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones.
