First game

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776

The Meisterbogen (Japanese: マスターボウ Master Bow) is a bow debuting in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. It acts as a brave weapon, allowing the unit to double the number of attacks per turn. However, it lacks the extended durability of the similar Brave Bow, which also has a better weight, higher might and even a lower weapon level.

The Meisterbogen reappears in Fire Emblem Heroes as a personal weapon of the legendary version of Leif.
