First game

Fire Emblem Fates

The Mini Bow (Japanese: ショートボウ Shortbow) is a bow-type weapon debuting in Fire Emblem Fates, and later appearing in Three Houses. In Fates, unusually for a bow, it is only capable of damage from melee range. In Three Houses, it can attack at 1-2 range, and it has low weight. This bow does not deal bonus damage against flying units.
