The Short Bow is a Bow that debuted in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776.

Overview[edit | edit source]

In the GBA games, this bow possesses a critical rate that is higher than most of its counterparts, although it is modest when compared to the Killer Bow. The Short Bow is easier to wield than a normal Steel Bow, owing to its low Weight reducing the extent of Attack Speed penalties that may arise.

In Fates, the Short Bow is referred to as the Mini Bow in localised versions of the game. This bow is, unlike other bows, imbued with the peculiar property of only being usable at a range of 1.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The weapon icon of the Short Bow from Thracia 776 bears a close resemblance to that of the Iron Bow in the GBA games; The only major difference lies in the fact that Thracia 776's Short Bow is of a darker color than the GBA Iron Bow.
