Bow

The Hero's Bow is a recurring Bow in The Legend of Zelda series. It is basically a classic Bow & Arrow, with the added title of Hero's. It has appeared in three canonical and one non-canonical game to date, with the most recent one being Battle Quest.

Appearances

Majora's Mask

The Hero's Bow in Majora's Mask is found in the Woodfall Temple. It is the reward for defeating the Mini-Boss of the Dungeon, a Dinolfos. It comes with the Quiver, an Arrow-holding item that stores up to 30 arrows at a time.

Each Dungeon will reward Link with a special type of arrow that he can use with his Hero's Bow. These arrows include Fire Arrows, Ice Arrows, and Light Arrows.

The Wind Waker

Link gets the Hero's Bow in the Tower of the Gods, where it is guarded by a Darknut. Defeating the Darknut gives Link access to the Treasure Chest that contains the Hero's Bow.

Throughout the game, Link can collect three special arrows to fire with the Hero's Bow: Fire Arrows, Ice Arrows, and Light Arrows.

Twilight Princess

In Twilight Princess, Link collects the Hero's Bow in the Goron Mines after defeating the Mini-Boss, Dangoro. The bow comes with the Small Quiver, which can only hold up to 30 arrows. This Bow is basically an upgrade to the Slingshot, as it shoots farther and deals more damage than Link's other projectile weapon.

Bomb Arrow

Main article: Bomb Arrow

A special feature of the Hero's Bow in this game is that it can now be combined with Bombs to shoot Bomb Arrows. These deadly, explosive projectiles blow up the first object it hits; making getting high up Pieces of Heart that are guarded by large rocks a piece of cake.

Non-Canon Appearances

Battle Quest

This bow can be used to take down enemies from a great distance. It shines brightly when charged. You'll feel like the hero of Hyrule with this in your hands. Trust me, I know.

The Hero's Bow is the item used by the Archer in Battle Quest.
