Bowbreaker (Japanese: 弓殺し Bow Slayer) is a skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Awakening. It gives its user enormous advantages when fighting an enemy who is wielding a bow or yumi. In Awakening and Fates, where it a class skill learned by Bow Knights and Sorcerers, it provides enormous boosts to its user's hit rate and avoid when fighting these weapons.

In Heroes, it is a type B passive skill split into three levels, in order from lowest to highest: Bowbreaker 1, Bowbreaker 2, and Bowbreaker 3. Units with a Bowbreaker skill will, when fighting the user of a bow skill while this skill's user's own HP is at a certain threshold or higher, automatically make a follow-up attack and prevent the bow skill's user from doing so themselves. The minimum amount of current HP required to activate the skill decreases with each level.
