Bow of Light
- This article is about the weapon from Spirit Tracks, A Link Between Worlds, Breath of the Wild and Age of Calamity. For the arrow from past Zelda games, see Light Arrow.
The Bow of Light is a weapon that Link collects in Spirit Tracks, A Link Between Worlds and Breath of the Wild.
In days gone by, it was used by the Spirits of Good to slay the evil demon Malladus. When Malladus possesses Zelda's body, Link must shoot an arrow to vanquish the demon from within her. Later, when Chancellor Cole and Malladus fuse, Link must distract Malladus for Zelda to shoot an arrow at a weak spot on its back. After a while, a crystal on its head will be exposed which Link must hit to conclude the battle. Link needs the Bow of Light in order to defeat Malladus. Link finds the Bow of Light at the end of the Sand Temple after defeating Skeldritch.
A Link Between Worlds
Princess Zelda gives Link this bow during the final battle with Yuga. It can only be used in painting form, and is only available during this fight.
Breath of the Wild
Zelda gives this bow to Link to finish off Ganon. It does a massive 90 damage, even though it is only used in this boss fight. The amiibo-exclusive Twilight Bow is very similar but weaker, and can be used outside of the boss battle.
The bow has an attack of 100 and a durability of 100, making it the single-shot bow with the strongest attack in the game. However, since it can't be used anywhere but in the final battle, the Royal Guard's Bow is second, but with middling durability.
Like the Master Sword in the Weapons inventory, the Bow of Light has its own slot at the Bows inventory regardless of the slots obtained through collecting Korok Seeds. As such, its slot completes the Bows inventory screen with 13 bows + Bow of Light + 6 arrow types, equaling 20 slots.
