“A bow whose design yields frequent critical hits.”
—In-game description, Shadow Dragon and New Mystery of the Emblem.

The Killer Bow (キラーボウ Kirā bou) is a Bow that recurrently appears across the Fire Emblem series. Like the other weapons in the Killer branch, this bow increases its wielder's Critical Hit rate drastically, granting them the opportunity to fell their enemies in one lethal strike, provided that their Strength is sufficiently high. In Shadows of Valentia the killer bow can only be forged from the silver bow as well as teaching the user the powerful Hunters Volley skill

The Killer Bow is oft depicted with an appearance that is markedly intimidating, complete with a blood-red finish.
