The Golden Bow is an item in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a Gerudo made bow with a base attack power of 14, though this may be increased by certain weapon bonuses. Like the Phrenic Bow, instead of the standard over the shoulder view the bow provides a first person perspective view that offers greater precision though reduces Link's field of vision. As it is made of gold it is a metallic bow and will not burn, though will attract lightning during thunderstorms, though this apparently is of little concern for the desert dwelling Gerudo as it hardly ever rains in the desert which would make thunderstorms are even rarer. As it is metallic it can be picked up using the Magnesis Rune.

It was designed by the Gerudo for both hunting and warfare, being engineered to strike down distant targets whether they be animals or enemies. It is popular due to its fine ornamentation along its limbs.

It is commonly found in the Gerudo province which includes Gerudo Desert and Gerudo Highlands regions. One spawns in the barracks for Gerudo soldiers in the western tip of Gerudo Town, in the northwestern part of the barracks next to where Teake stands. Another spawns inside a chunk of ice located in the Northern Icehouse, however it can only be melted at night when Anche is sleeping as she will stop him from using fire to melt it when she is awake due to fear he will melt all the ice in the icehouse. Another Golden Bow will occasionally spawn in its place, though it will be unfrozen. Additionally, Link can also obtain one from a treasure chest in the ruins south of the icehouse.
