Fired with Bow
An Arrow is an item that is shot out of Link's Bow. In the original The Legend of Zelda, Link loses one Rupee per arrow shot. In all games since the original, Link has had a maximum capacity. Also, in most games, there are Quiver upgrades to hold more arrows. Arrows are found in enemies, jars, and crates. Many stores sell arrows.
Alternate Types of Arrows
Throughout The Legend of Zelda series, there are multiple different types of Arrows, including Fire, Ice, Light and Silver Arrows.
- Main article: Fire Arrow
The Fire Arrow is an obtainable item in the first three 3D Zelda games, including Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, and The Wind Waker. They also make an appearance in Twilight Princess, however, not as an obtainable item, but rather as a use of attack against Link by Bulblin Archers.

- Main article: Light Arrow
- Main article: Silver Arrow
- Main article: Bomb Arrow
Bomb Arrows are a combinations of the Bow and Bombs together. They first appeared in Link's Awakening by simply using both items one after another. In Twilight Princess, Link can connect the two weapons at the same time, deliberately shooting Bomb Arrows. They are often used to cause objects to fall down to the floor. In Breath of the Wild, Bomb Arrows are obtainable items from treasure chests, defeated enemies, or items that can be purchased from a store.
- Main article: Shock Arrow
Shock Arrows appear in Breath of the Wild and when used, will electrify its target, temporarily paralyzing it, and allowing Link to deliver some melee attacks.
- Main article: Ancient Arrow
Appearing in Breath of the Wild, Ancient Arrows are rare and expensive arrows that can obliterate most enemies with a single hit, including Lynels and direct shots to the eye of Guardians. However defeating a Lynel with an Ancient Arrow will prevent Link from being able to acquire any of the spoils.
- In Link's Awakening, if you pick up an Arrow off the ground before you have the Bow and Arrow, it will give you one Rupee instead.
