Within the comics, Gambit has two favoured cards: the Joker and the Ace of Spades.

In the case of the former, the Joker is the wild card that can take on any value in a game, suggesting that Gambit is aware of his dual roles as thief and X-Man.

In the case of the latter, the Ace of Spades has come to be known as the card of death. In the Vietnam War, it was used as a psychological weapon by the American soldiers against the Viet Cong. According to SGM Friedman, the Vietnamese were thought to believe that the spade meant death and ill-fortune. In a bid to scare away Viet Cong soldiers and thereby avoid hostilities, it was common practice to litter the forested grounds and fields with the card. This story may, however, be apocryphal. Nevertheless, Gambit's identification with it may his acknowledgement of his role in the Morlock Massacre or simply a play on the fact that he is using cards as weapons.
