Tarot is a set of playing cards believed to have divinatory properties, allowing one to flip the cards a certain way and read the current and future situations of a person, such as their love life or aspirations. Each card has a different face, such as The Fool, The Lovers or Wheel of Fortune.

The item is featured in the first and second Bible Black games, briefly in the first anime series Bible Black: La Noche de Walpurgis and somewhat more extensively in its prequel Bible Black: Origins.

In her days as a student, Hiroko Takashiro plays tarot with her magic club friends Rie and Saki. One day when they stay at school after hours, the cards predict that A great change is upon you. Something will change your life completely. Saki speculates that this means she might find a boyfriend, and Rie says she will ask one of her school friends out on a date. However, Takashiro says the prediction might not be related to boyfriends at all.

Student council president Nami Kozono later catches them in the middle of their tarot session. She examines the cards, but quickly dismisses them as ridiculous superstition and silly, carelessly throwing down The Fool card before leaving. The magic club girls later speculate that the aforementioned tarot prediction might have been aimed at Kozono, as she is bewitched by them to fall madly in love with an unpopular student.

Twelve years later in the same school, student and occult fanatic Kaori Saeki also owns a deck of tarot cards. She uses it to supposedly read the fortune of her classmates. The readings are quite popular among the students, and Saeki frequently performs readings for her classmates Mika Ito and Ayumi Murai.
