First game

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776

The Venin Bow or Poison Bow (Japanese: 毒の弓 Poison Bow) is an uncommon bow which was introduced in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. It is statistically near-identical to the regular Iron Bow, except that its arrows contain a toxin which gives it the added effect of poisoning units when the weapon successfully shoots them. These bows are traditionally found in the hands of enemy units, and only the Tellius games, Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, and Three Houses have ways for the player to obtain them.
