* Multiple characters in the ''{{Champions}}'' universe, including Crossbow (a hero) and Rainbow Archer (a villain).
** This sort of character is generally easy to build in systems with "effect-based" power creation rules like ''Champions'' or ''{{TabletopGame/Mutants and Masterminds}}''. Take an attack power with multiple alternate modes (which generally come at a significant discount for only being usable one at a time), give it the special effect "bow and trick arrows", add the necessary drawbacks if it's actual equipment that can be taken away, and you're basically done.

* In ancient Persia, [[http://margo.student.utwente.nl/sagi/artikel/retarrow/retarrow.html returning arrows were known]], and have been reconstructed and used. They're light, and have very short range, and are strictly for showing off the fletcher's and archer's skill, but they do indeed return.

They were often blunt, which meant they could kill small game by sheer impact but not larger game like deer. Which was very important if you didn't want to get hung. Aslo blunt arrows don't get stuck in trees as much.
