Bowbreaker (弓殺し Yumi Koroshi lit. Bow Slayer in the Japanese version, Anti-arc in the French version, Spezzarco in the Italian version, Rompearcos in the Spanish version) is a Skill introduced in TearRing Saga: Berwick Saga. In this incarnation, it is known as Dodge Arrows (弓回避, Yumi Kaihi lit. Bow Avoidance, Arrowbane in the fan translation). It is a skill that triggers if a unit would be hit by a bow, crossbow, or ballista. When activated, it rerolls the hit with an accuracy cap of 33%; thus, it effectively cuts hit rates 33% and up by two thirds and squares hit rates below 33%.

In Fire Emblem Awakening, if an enemy unit is equipped with any Bow, the user will gain +50 to their Hit Rate and Evasion. This ability can help reduce the accuracy of Snipers, as they are notoriously known for having a very high skill stat. It should be noted that the ability does not stack with the Superior Bow; only one of the two's effects will be used.

In Fire Emblem Heroes it can be learned without inheriting by: Setsuna.
