Arrow Funk is a mod for Friday Night Funkin' created and headed by Yoisabo. It comes with remixes of FNF's songs, with new charting and characters designed and named after a video by Brazilian YouTuber Pai Troll, where he asks his sister to ascribe names to Friday Night Funkin' characters.

Bidu is a young man working for the demon club owner Kevin, but the demon decides to spread rumours about Bidu being a drug addict to hurt his reputation. He also tells the father of Bidu's girlfriend, Grape Sago, that Bidu was interested in his daughter. Grape Sago then challenges Bidu to a rap battle. Unbeknownst to Bidu, this would be the first of many challenges he'd face...


This game provides examples of:

  • Adaptational Dye-Job:
    • Boyfriend has blue hair, Bidu's hair is pink and blue.
    • Daddy Dearest has black hair, Grape Sago's hair is cream-coloured.
  • Adaptational Early Appearance: Kevin, who is based on the Henchmen, appears as the opponent in the tutorial, while the Henchmen didn't appear until Week 4 of FNF.
  • Adaptational Late Appearance: Instead of serving as the opponent for the tutorial, Barbara instead makes her first appearance during Week 1.
  • Adaptation Name Change:
    • Rather than using their original names, all of the characters are instead named after Pai Troll's video where he has his sister guess the names of Friday Night Funkin' characters.
    • All of the songs, which are remixes of songs from the original FNF, have different names except for Tutorial.
  • Adaptational Species Change:
    • Barbara, the equivalent to Girlfriend, is pure human, while the latter is a demon.
    • Advertisement:
    • In both Spooky Month and Friday Night Funkin', Skid and Pump were human children in costumes. Their equivalents in this mod, Pumpkin and Death, appear to be a living scarecrow and the Grim Reaper, respectively.
  • Adapted Out: Week 2's final song in Friday Night', "Monster", is sung by the character of the same name. Here, a "Monster" remix is ditched in favour of an original third song, "Virus", for Skid and Pump's replacements, Pumpkin and Death.
  • Affectionate Nickname: "Bidu" isn't actually Bidu's name, but rather a nickname Barbara gave him stemming from her love of ice cream.
  • Age Lift: Downplayed; instead of being 19 like their canon counterparts, Bidu are Barbara are both 17.
  • Amazing Technicolour Population:
    • Kevin has pink skin.
    • Grape Sago has dark purple skin.
  • Bowdlerize: The original FNFs rating for just barely hitting a note is "Shit!". Arrow Funk instead has "YOU SUCK!".

  • Edible Theme Naming: Bidu (named after a Brazilian term for freeze pops), Grape Sago (named after a type of pudding), Pumpkin, and Rotten Lemon are all named after foods, with Bidu and Grape Sago specifically being named after Brazilian foods.
  • Giving Someone the Pointer Finger:
    • Bidu's right pose has him cross his arms and use his free hand to cockily point at his opponent.
    • Death's left pose has him angrily point at Bidu. After becoming happy, he instead points at the ground.
  • In-Joke: The mod was given its name because some Brazilian FNF fans call the game "jogo de seta/jogo de flecha", literally meaning "game of arrows" in Portuguese. One of the Couch Gag opening lines references this, saying "funk de flecha" (literally meaning "funk of arrows").
  • Marathon Level: The songs of the mod usually last around two minutes to two and a half minutes; Rap King and NightFall, however, clock in at around four minutes, making completing both a test in patience and focus.
  • Named by the Adaptation: The game's version of Girlfriend is named Barbara, while the character based off the Henchmen is named Kevin.
  • Overprotective Dad: Upon finding out he was dating his daughter, Grape Sago immediately challenges Bidu to a rap battle.
  • Shout-Out:
    • The entire mod is a big reference to Brazilian YouTuber Pai Troll, whose video about his sister giving names to FNF characters inspired its creation.
    • In Week 2, a Boo and Pump's mask can be seen among the various items in the background.
