- — In-game description
The Fairy Bow is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. This bow fires arrows at various targets, including enemies and Crystal Switches. It is the main item of the Forest Temple. The bow's power can be increased with three special, magical arrow types: Fire, Ice, and Light Arrows. If an arrow passes through a torch, it is set ablaze, allowing Link to set a target ablaze without Fire Arrows or Din's Fire. Link's capacity for carrying arrows may be increased by way of upgradeable quivers. Link is only capable of using the bow when he is an adult.
Link's neutral special in this game is referred to as the Bow but bears resemblance to the Fairy Bow. Young Link's neutral special is a smaller version of the Fairy Bow equipped with Fire Arrows called the Fire Bow.
