Snide Bow (Japanese: 冷笑の遊弓 Sneering traveler bow) is a weapon skill in the bow category which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; it is a personal weapon of Python. The Snide Bow boosts its user's attack, speed, and damage in combat if their HP is not low; when refined, it additionally drops the foe's speed and defense in combat based on any bonuses to those stats they currently have.

an ally, inflicts Spd/Def-5 on foe during combat
and inflicts penalty on foe's Spd/Def during
combat = current bonus on each of foe's
stats × 2. (Example: if foe has +7 bonus to Spd,
inflicts Spd-19, for a net penalty of Spd-12.)
