From what I can tell, the only time Link's arrows are useful are providing a limited quantity projectile attack until the red ring is collected. However, once Link has the red ring there's really no reason to continue using arrows. I propose improving arrows so they are still a weapon to consider once you have the red ring. The best improvement I can think of is to make them armor-piercing like Link's bombs so they are able to injure spike tops. Some other ideas to improve them that admittedly wouldn't be faithful to the original game include: Make them "stick" once they come in contact with enemies, walls, pipes and platforms so they can be either: Used as a mini platform, possibly only available for a limited time and then they disappear, or Recollected once touched Make them able to pierce through multiple enemies and bricks with one shot, similar to Mega Man's Metal Blade attack Make them slow down enemies that are struck by it Make Link able to shoot more than one arrow at a time Anyone else have ideas?
