Super Arrow (スーパー アロー Sūpā Arō?) is a character and pilot in the F-Zero series. He first appeared in 1998 in F-Zero X for the Nintendo 64, and has since been a recurring playable character.

Super Arrow entered the previous F-Zero Grand Prix to chase after Zoda, his sworn enemy, despite having no prior racing experience. After the crash that led to the suspension of F-Zero, Super Arrow successfully lobbied for the creation of the F-Zero Racing Academy, which helped to lift the ban on the races. Super Arrow continues to race, train new pilots, and hunt for Zoda in the new F-Zero Grand Prix.

Characteristics

Super Arrow is a superhero dedicated to defending peace on Earth. He entered the previous F-Zero Grand Prix in an attempt to capture the criminal Zoda, but, due to never having raced before, was forced to register for his license on the spot, just for the chance to enter.[3] By utilizing his superpowers, Arrow became a rising star in the previous F-Zero races, gaining support from the powerful Lazlo Falconi, who bought him his pet cybernetic bird.[4] When the F-Zero races were suspended, Super Arrow petitioned for the creation of the F-Zero Racing Academy, which trained prospective racers. After establishing the school, Arrow began searching for recruits in the illegal underground races, hoping to convince them to join the safer, more lawful F-Zero circuit.[4] It was during these searches that Super Arrow met his future wife, Mrs. Arrow (who he admits is a faster racer than him).[5] Since the reopening of the F-Zero Grand Prix, the Arrows have continued to race, hoping to stop Zoda and any other evildoers.

Super Arrow's vehicle is the extremely light King Meteor. Designed by Professor Hollow, the man responsible for creating the Arrows' armor and secret weapons, it is a counterpart to Mrs. Arrow's Queen Meteor. The machine has solid grip and boost stats, but its body is quite weak.

Appearance

Super Arrow is a large and muscular man. He wears a brown bodysuit with blue gloves, a studded blue belt with a silver bird head buckle, and blue boots. He sports a long, orange (sometimes red)[7] cape around his neck, affixed with a gem at the collar. His suit comes complete with a mask which leaves only his lower face uncovered, with wing-like protrusions extending from the eyes and a large white "A" on his forehead.

Appearances

F-Zero games

Super Arrow first appeared in F-Zero X for the Nintendo 64, where he raced alongside his wife to capture the criminal Zoda.[6] He has also appeared as a playable character in F-Zero GX, F-Zero: GP Legend, and F-Zero Climax.

In F-Zero Climax, Super Arrow could be unlocked by clearing the Gold Cup on Master difficulty.[8]

In game description
Super Arrow is a superhero who defends peace on Earth. He entered the last F-ZERO race to chase his old enemy, Zoda. At the time, Super Arrow had never even driven before, so he had to hurriedly register for an F-ZERO license just so that he could enter the race. Even so, he managed to race competitively by utilizing his superpowers. Zoda has entered the race again, and Super Arrow must do all he can to stop him and end his reign of terror. He is known for his relentlessly unforgiving attitude toward criminals, but when it comes to his wife, Mrs. Arrow, he's as docile as a puppy.
