A bow whose design yields frequent critical hits.



First game

Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem

The Killer Bow is an uncommon bow-type weapon in the Fire Emblem series. Its main features are an enhanced critical rate and good accuracy (except in Thracia 776, Blazing Sword and The Sacred Stones), which more than compensate for its regular durability and might.

The killer bow has appeared in all games since Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, including the remake of Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light.
