A bow said to drive away evil.



First game

Fire Emblem Gaiden

The Blessed Bow (Japanese: 聖なる弓 Holy Bow) is a bow that first appeared in Fire Emblem Gaiden. It is designed to fight monsters/Terrors and is highly effective against them, although its low might makes it weak against any other type of enemy. It also heals a small amount of its user's hit points every turn.

  • In Shadows of Valentia, the Blessed Bow is the only blessed weapon that cannot be obtained as a random drop from breaking urns in The Astral Temple or The Inner Sanctum, even though multiples can already be obtained in the base game. Like several other items, it is listed in the item drop table for both episodes but is set to 0%.[1]
