  • The effect of Assassin's Bow may reflect how, in Fates, bows were in the green category while daggers were in the blue category, with green having weapon triangle advantage over blue.

Assassin's Bow

It was presumably translated as assassin's bow because the Japanese word for "assassin" is 暗殺者, which is similar to the Japanese name of Daggerbreaker.
