Key Quest power-ups are virtual cards in the game Key Quest that grant players specific powers within the game. In general, using a power-up either aids the player in winning the game or prevents the player's opponents from doing the same. Power-ups can be obtained by passing or landing on a power-up square or by winning a mini-game or duel. Each power-up can only be used once, and it disappears after it is used. Players are allow to carry up to three power-ups at one time. If a player has three power-ups and they acquire another, they may discard one of their stored power-ups to make room for the new one. There are a total of 25 different power-ups in the game of Key Quest, each of which has a unique effect.
