Arrow carries a short bow.


The Arrow is an attack card with an aggressive temperament.

Magic and Abilities


The Arrow attacking

Archery Magic: When Arrow is activated, she appears and fires a volley of arrows at her master's command.

Fortune Telling: All Clow Cards have the ability to help their user predict the future. Their method of fortune-telling is similar to that of tarot cards. The interpretation of the message the Clow Cards relay depends on the magical power of the user.



It was captured during the movie's opening story arc, over spring break (it appears in Episode 36 ), and played a pivotal role in the movie finale, saving Sakura Kinomoto from drowning inside a skyscraper located in Hong Kong.


The Arrow's transformation is not shown in the series, but in the beginning of episode 61 Kero makes reference to Sakura transforming 4 cards that day so it is possible that Arrow was one of them.



  • Unlike Sword or Shield, summoning arrow does not summon a weapon itself, but rather the entity wielding it.
  • Arrow appears in neither the manga nor anime, and was introduced solely for the first movie.
  • In the same anime, her hair style is rather similar to The Snow card.
  • The kanji at the top of the card: 矢, (Pronounced 'ya') means 'arrow' in Japanese.
