The Superior Bow (Japanese: 弓殺しの弓 Bow Slayer Bow) is a bow introduced in Fire Emblem Awakening. One of the game's five "superior" weapons which equips its user with one of the "breaker" skills, the Superior Lance grants its wielder Bowbreaker when equipped.

In Warriors, it is translated as Bowbane Bow, and appears exclusively via its paid downloadable content. The Bowbane Bow is a bow which comes with a built-in attribute of boosting its damage when facing other bow wielders.
