The Shining Bow (シャイニングボウ Shainingu Bō) is a Bow that was initially conceived in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, but officially introduced in Fire Emblem Fates. Imbued with the special property of inflicting magical damage, the Shining Bow can be used in close-range combat, although it compensates for these strengths by being incapable of triggering critical hits or offensive skills. The Shining Bow is best paired with characters that have high magic.

In Path of Radiance, it was called the Bright Bow (ブライトボウ Buraito Bō). Although the basic functions and details of the bow are finalized, it does not appear in the final version of the game, and can only be acquired with the aid of cheat codes. Like its name suggests, the damage dealt by the Bright Bow each time it is drawn is Light magic-based.

In Fates, along with the Sidelong Yumi, the Shining Bow is one of the only bows that can attack from a range of 1-2. This gives it greater flexibility on the battlefield than most other bows. Compared to the Sidelong Yumi, the Shining Bow has much better might and the ability to double attack; however, the Sidelong Yumi can trigger criticals and activate offensive skills.

In Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, the Shining Bow is known as the Radiant Bow (光の弓 Hikari no Yumi, lit. Light Bow). It retains the effect of dealing magical damage and grants the ability to deal effective damage against Terrors.

In Three Houses, the Shining Bow is known as the Magic Bow (魔法の弓 Mahō no Yumi). While it retains the effect of dealing magical damage, it no longer has the ability to deal effective damage against Monsters.

TriviaEdit

  • The Shining Bow is the first magical-based bow to be present within the game upon release; the first programmed magic bow (the Bright Bow from Path of Radiance) was scrapped before the game's release.
  • The Shining Bow is a weapon that has one of the highest name change rates in franchise history, changing its name every time it appeared in a main series title.
