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.
