The Card Guards are villains in American McGee's Alice. They are loyal playing card-like soldiers of the Queen, who make up a vast majority of her army. The four different types of card (Hearts, Diamonds, Spades and Clubs) each have their own distinct weapons, the Hearts being the strongest whilst the Clubs are the weakest. They wear executioner-like clothes.

Alice: Madness Returns
In Alice: Madness Returns, the Card Guards are shambling zombies/skeletons instead of humanoids. Some of them have weapons while others fights with bare hands. There are also some armored Card Guards among the Hearts, and Alice needs to hit the Heart behind the guard in order to destroy it.
