The Silver Yumi (銀の和弓 Gin no wakyū lit. Silver Wakyū) is a Yumi that is introduced in Fire Emblem Fates. The strongest of the standard Yumi appearing in the game, the Silver Yumi is, like most other Yumi, capable of raising its wielder's Resistance by 2. The strength of the Silver Yumi is offset by its lowering its wielder's Critical Evade, alongside reducing their Strength and Skill post-battle.
The Silver Hankyu (銀の近撃和弓 Gin no chikageki wakyū, lit. Silver Close-Range Wakyū) is the enemy-exclusive close-range variant of the Silver Yumi.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
Yumi is the kun'yomi reading for the Chinese character gōng (弓), which in Japanese on'yomi is pronounced as kyū. Wakyu (和弓) translates to "Japanese Bow", the kanji which is pronounced wa in on'yomi and kazu in kun'yomi is borrowed from the Chinese hé (和), which means "harmonious" or "harmony".
