First game

Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem

The Killer Bow (Japanese: キラーボウ Killer Bow) is an uncommon bow which was introduced in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem and has appeared in every game since. As one of the series of killer weapons, it has a greatly enhanced crit stat compared to regular bows, which gives it a very high chance of inflicting critical hits and makes it an extremely dangerous weapon.

Other appearances

TCG Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher)

The Killer Bow is present as a skill on one card in TCG Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher): B06-028N Prince of Verdane, Jamke. It is a manual-activation skill which, for the cost of flipping one bond card, completely disallows the opponent to play an evasion of Jamke's attacks for the rest of the turn, unless Jamke is attacking their lord unit.
