    What do each of Bow's playing card arrowheads do?

    In the Filmation cartoon, he didn't have the playing card suits for arrowheads and he had many types of different arrows for different tasks. I'm pretty sure he had the playing card arrowheads in comics but I'm really out of touch in that department. So does anyone know what each of the playing card suits arrowheads do? Give me your best guesses.

    My assumptions:

    Spades: Perhaps extends out into some sort of a grappling hook arrowhead?
    Clubs: Smokescreen arrow tips?
    Diamonds: Horde Trooper armor piercing arrowheads?
    Hearts: Sticky arrows?

    These are just my guesses and are mostly based off of the Filmation cartoon because that's what I know best. Anyone got any other insight?

    This is why we need some sort of media entertainment, be it mini comics or cartoons to see such MOTUC canon things in action.

    They are based on playing card suits, not Lucky Charms.

    Wooops. That's what I get for not reading the fine print last time I saw that Style Guide image posted.

    Those are two lame actions that the hearts and clubs do imo. How would he seriously put those to use in MOTUC canon? And who would he shoot in the butt cheek ala cupid with the heart one, Adora or She-Ra?

    "smacks head" I was going to use the "heart arrow makes people fall in love" thing as a joke, now you tell me that was actually considered as a REAL power?
    Poor Bow. As if the special friend thing wasn't already bad enough.
    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
    Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.
    All we as the audience and fans can do is pick and choose our favorite interpretation and ignore the rest.

    Being able to make someone like Trap Jaw fall instantly in love with Evil Lyn or Stinkor in the middle of a battle would be a very handy power to have I think. I can see Lyn's head popping off as TJ tries to kiss her neck...

    Those love arrows seem especially useless when most of the enemies he'll be fighting are robotic Horde Troopers.

    So if Bo was going up against Hordak and Leech, he can either shoot them to give them luck or make them fall in love? Ah, finally it's all clear. Bo isn't gay, but he has the power to make other dudes kiss.

    What do his arrowheads do? Cost a lot of time and money carving them & imbuing them with powerful magic in the outlaw forests of Etheria.

    Or maybe some cute, magical elf delivers them to him -along with his aftershave - when he runs out. Or summat.

    However, his most popular arrowhead is the one that forces people to play strip-poker.

    I don't care what their powers are. I like the designs being based on playing cards!
