Seldom seen today, the Balloon Arrow was surprisingly common in the Golden Age and into the Silver Age. It probably has the most appearances for a bizarre category arrow.
This versatile trick had numerous uses. The shaft produced a balloon which could be shaped into virtually anything. The helium variety could float gently to send messages or attract help. The larger ones were powerful enough to lift an adult human into the air, while just two were required to lift a gorilla.
