The Short Bow (Japanese: ショートボウ Shortbow or 短弓 Shortbow) is an uncommon bow-type weapon in the Fire Emblem series, debuting in Thracia 776 and appearing in all three GBA games. The main features of this weapon depend on the game where it is present. In Thracia 776, it is a very common and unexpensive bow, while in the next two games, it is mainly used by mounted warriors from Sacae. It is an uncommon but fairly normal bow in The Sacred Stones.
In the Elibe and Magvel games, it has a small critical bonus.
