“An affordable bow that is easy to wield.”
—In-game description, Shadow Dragon and New Mystery of the Emblem.

The Iron Bow (鉄の弓 Tetsu no Yumi) is, in a majority of the Fire Emblem titles, the most rudimentary Bow. Commonly employed by both player and enemy Archer-based units alike, the Iron Bow is highly favoured for its low Weight, a fact that complements said units' characteristically low Con by significantly reducing any Attack Speed penalties that they may sustain from equipping the weapon.

An enemy-exclusive close-ranged version of the weapon, the Iron Shortbow (鉄の近撃弓 lit. Iron Proximity Bow), also appears in Fire Emblem Fates.
