The Rising of the Shield Hero Wiki

The Legendary Bow is one of four Legendary Weapons within Raphtalia's World. The current wielder is Itsuki Kawasumi.


The Legendary Bow, also known as the Bow Spirit of the Legendary Weapon. The spirit is from another world prior to being summoned to another world alongside with it's chosen Candidate, the Legendary Bow is one of four Legendary Weapons present in the world of which Naofumi currently resides in. The candidates of the weapon have been given the title of Bow Hero, whom they are generally addressed as so by the locals.

The current candidate of the Legendary Bow is Itsuki Kawasumi. He was selected by the Bow Spirit as a backup candidate, which meant prior to being summoned he would have some serious characteristic problems.

Power-up Method

As a Legendary Weapon, the Legendary Sword has more than one power-up method. As the Hero levels up, all weapon forms will grow stronger alongside them.

  • Weapon Rarity (core): The rarer a weapon is, the stronger it is. A weapon made from rarer materials will be stronger than a weapon of equal quality but more common materials, for example.[1]
  • Ore Equip: The power of a weapon can be raised by equipping it with certain ores. This never fails.
  • Item Enchantment: Items that have been absorbed into a weapon can be turned into energy, and that can be used to raise the percentage of various stats. Success is based on probability, decreasing with each successive enchantment. Upon failure, the item enchantment level is reset to 0.
  • Job Level: You can increase specific stats by using the energy contained in absorbed monsters or items. Upon filling the level gauge for the desired stat, the stat is increased and the level gauge is reset with a cooldown timer.[2]
