A bow whose might offsets its steep price.



First game

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

The Silver Bow (Japanese: 銀の弓 Silver Bow) is a powerful bow in the Fire Emblem series, which has appeared in every game of it. When compared to the iron and steel versions of this weapon, this bow usually shows a higher accuracy and might, but less uses; in fact, in only one game it is less accurate than the steel bow. As most bows, it is effective against flying units.
