First game

Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem

The Broken Bow is a bow-type weapon in the Fire Emblem series. After being completely consumed, any bow becomes this. They are still usable, but their low accuracy and might, coupled with a considerable increase of weight, render them useless. These bows can be repaired with the Hammerne staff or in any castle.

The broken bow appears only in three games - Mystery of the Emblem, Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776. In the rest of the series, weapons disappear after wearing out.
