The Short Bow (ショートボウ Shōto bou) is a recurring Bow that first appears in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776.

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 Mini Bow is a bow with the peculiar property of only being usable at 1 Range, unlike other bows.

  • 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.
