The Bow Paladin (Japanese: 弓騎将アローナイト Arrow Knight) is a bow-using class exclusive to Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. They ride horses, along with three similar classes of the same game—the Sword Paladin, Lance Paladin, and Axe Paladin classes. The Bow Knight class is enemy-only, but a bow knight would presumably promote to a bow paladin; a bow paladin can then become a Silver Knight.

As a promoted class, they have quite high stats all around—with no outstanding strengths or weaknesses in terms of numbers. Their use of bows gives them a two-space attack range, but they cannot fight in melee range. Also, their horses allow them to move around quickly and rescue many units, but leave them vulnerable to horse-specific weapons. Generally, they are solid front-line units with strong offensive capabilities and sturdy defenses.
