Type

Bow

First game

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776

The Meisterbogen or Master Bow (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 less weight, higher might, lower weapon level, and more accuracy.

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

In Engage, the Master Bow is used in the fourth hit in Emblem Leif's engage attack, Quadruple Hit.

Trivia

  • Meisterbogen is the German name of the Killer Bow.
  • Though he is the sole wielder of the Meisterbogen in Heroes, Leif can never wield it in Thracia 776 as he is unable to wield bows. Inversely, the Meisterbogen does not appear in Genealogy of the Holy War, where Leif can wield bows as a Master Knight.
