The '''Shining Bow''' (Japanese: {{hover|シャイニングボウ|Shainingubō}} ''Shining Bow'') or '''Radiant Bow''' (Japanese: {{hover|光の弓|Hikari no yumi}} ''Light Bow'') is a [[bow]] debuting in {{FE14}}. It is a [[Magic (stat)|magic bow]] and, not counting the unused [[Bright Bow]] from {{title|Path of Radiance}}, is the first magic bow to be made available in the {{FES}}. Its attacks are fuelled by the unit's [[Magic (stat)|magic stat]] and target the foe's [[resistance]], instead of [[strength]] and [[defense]]. In ''Fates'', it also allows its user to attack from both the traditional [[range]] of bows as well as from melée range, but conversely it is unable to deal [[critical hit]]s and also prevents the user's [[offensive skill]]s from activating; {{title|Echoes:  Shadows of Valentia}}, on the other hand, allows it to deal critical hits and activate offensive skills, but cannot reach the full range of most of that game's bows.

The '''Shining Bow''' (Japanese: {{hover|シャイニングボウ|Shainingubō}} ''Shining Bow''), also known as the '''Bright Bow''' (Japanese: {{hover|ブライトボウ|Buraitobō}} ''Bright Bow''), is a [[Magic (element)|magic]] [[bow]] which made its first legitimate appearance in {{FE14}}, although it is also present in [[Unused content in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance|an unused state]] in {{FE9}}. It uses [[Light (magic)|light magic]] to attack at both the standard bow long range and, unlike any other bow in either game, at close range. Its attacks are fuelled by the unit's [[Magic (stat)|magic stat]] and target the foe's [[resistance]], instead of [[strength]] and [[defense]]. However, ''Fates'' gives it several drawbacks, in that it is unable to deal [[critical hit]]s and also prevents the user's [[offensive skill]]s from activating.

Icon of the Bright Bow from Path of Radiance.

Magic weapon. Cannot make critical hits or trigger offensive skills.

Type

Bow

First game

Fire Emblem Fates
(Path of Radiance as an unused item)

The Shining Bow (Japanese: シャイニングボウ Shining Bow), also known as the Bright Bow (Japanese: ブライトボウ Bright Bow), is a magic bow which made its first legitimate appearance in Fire Emblem Fates, although it is also present in an unused state in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. It uses light magic to attack at both the standard bow long range and, unlike any other bow in either game, at close range. Its attacks are fuelled by the unit's magic stat and target the foe's resistance, instead of strength and defense. However, Fates gives it several drawbacks, in that it is unable to deal critical hits and also prevents the user's offensive skills from activating.
