* As with his comic counterpart, Hawkeye of ''Film/TheAvengers2012'' uses these to devastating effect. Mostly he sticks with normal broadheads and explosive arrows, but he also has some that hack computers, melt steel, or act as a grappling hook. He has a special quiver that attaches the desired heads to the arrows selected via pressing buttons on his bow.

He has a special quiver that attaches the desired heads to the arrows selected via pressing buttons on his bow. This comes in handy when he runs out of arrows, he simply grabs a close one and changes the head as needed.

** And while we're on the subject of the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'', Woodrow Kelvin from the ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny'' remake has a very interesting move called Bassaiga. He sets up his bow so that it looks like he's going to shoot his enemy, but then he pulls his sword out at the last moment and slashes them. How's ''that'' for a [[IncrediblyLamePun Trick Arrow]]?

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/HorizonZeroDawn'': Fire arrows, frost arrows, and shock arrows are your standard elemental ammo. Tearblaster arrows will explode into a sonic scream that vibrates the components and armor off a machine (or stuns a human for a few seconds from the blaring noise), Harvest arrows are weak but will cause torn-off materials to somehow triple their yield, and Corruption arrows drive enemies mad enough to fight among themselves.

* Cupid, the god of love, acquired a bow and arrow to represent his power during the Hellenistic period. He is mostly known for his golden arrow, which makes people feel love (usually for one specific person), but he also has a leaden arrow, which makes people feel aversion to love. This was used to comical effect when used on Apollo and Daphne.
