Super Arrow is a world-renowned superhero on the planet Earth, known for his many daring captures of dangerous intergalactic criminals such as Zoda(whom always manages to slyly escape his grasp time and again). He was first able to greatly publicize himself and his services after entering his very first F-Zero Grand Prix, where literally hundreds of hungry sponsors were clamouring over him. Four years after the Great Accident, Super Arrow was able to successfully bring the races back(with advanced safety regulations, of course)after launching a successful petition with over a thousand different names backing it up. Super Arrow mainly did this because he found it was the best way to hunt down dirty, scheming criminals due to the fact that an overly-popular venue such as the F-Zero would eventually attract each and every one of them like flies to honey. Setting up this petition wasn't easy though, as Super Arrow had to strike a deal with the head of an illegal underground racing division in order to make it possible. This is where Super Arrow had an unexpected run-in with Zoda which then led him to meeting Mrs. Arrow, who claimed she was after the criminal herself. Super Arrow now races in the F-Zero alongside his new wife, Mrs. Arrow, in order to successfully capture any criminal who may be foolish enough to try and conceal themself amongst a slew of serious and seasoned pilots.

[edit] F-Zero X

In the second console-based installment of the F-Zero franchise, Super Arrow was introduced as a very level-headed and stone-serious individual, carrying the exact same type of superhero-like role as Captain Falcon, as well as bearing a noticable physical resemblance to him as well.

In the most recent console-based title, Super Arrow has been shaped into a very corny, cliched character adopting the superhero role, constantly monologuing his triumphs and exploiting the "respected" public image he bears to the bitter end(as is witnessed in his various F-Zero TV interviews). It's quite difficult to take him seriously with this attitude, even though his overall bio comes off as pretty much straightforward and interesting.

[edit] F-Zero Climax

Due to the lack of an actual storyline, besides being based off of the finale to F-Zero Falcon Legend(character-wise), Super Arrow saves the day in the King Meteor: a good boost and speed stat blesses this machine, with a moderate grip and strength stat to back it up.

[edit] F-Zero Legend of Falcon

In the anime adaptation, Super Arrow is as much of a bumbling, comedic relief as you could possibly imagine him to be. He most certainly doesn't carry the serious demeanor that Captain Falcon does regardless of his near-matching appearance. In the episode that Michael Chain is first introduced, he ends up trapped in a betrayal predicament involving Rick Wheeler, Mrs. Arrow, and Truman. Needless to say, he doesn't help set the dramatic tone in the least, futiley running about like a fool while trapped in Truman's basement.
