Game of origin: Mega Man 5

Super Arrow is a utility weapon in Mega Man Maker originally obtained after beating Star Man from Mega Man 5. When used, the user will fire a single buster-looking shot with a small platform attached to it. The shot will stay still in the air for a few moments before then quickly shooting off in the direction it was shot. The user can jump on the platform and ride it as it flies to cross long distances, or quickly place one after the other and climb them in order to reach greater heights. If the arrow hits a wall it will open up into a suction cup and stick to the wall for a short time until it despawns. If the shot instead hits an enemy it will deal damage but disappear.

Trivia

  • Super Arrow is the only utility weapon in the Mega Man series to be a boss' weakness, with it being the primary weakness of the Wily Machine 5 in Mega Man 5. Additionally, it is the secondary weakness of Dark Man 2 and Dark Man 3.
  • Super Arrow will give the user Mega Man's default color palette. This causes Proto Man and Bass to also have Mega Man's colors if they have the Super Arrow equipped.
  • Despite the Super Arrow's ability to deal damage to enemies or bosses upon collision, Super Arrow will not destroy Super Arrow Weapon Blocks or Weapon Barriers, and will instead stick to them like normal walls. It is unknown currently if this is an oversight or intended behaviour.
  • The only way to destroy Super Arrow Weapon Blocks or Weapon Barriers, is to deflect any enemy projectile into Super Arrow Weapon Blocks or Weapon Barriers with Proto Man's shield, while Proto Man is equipped with Super Arrow. It is unknown currently if this is an oversight or intended behaviour.

Glitches

  • If 2 arrows are ridden at the same time, the game will crash.
