- "In the past, the king of Hyrule presented this bow to only the most talented archers in the land. Its combat capabilities are as impressive as its extravagant design."
- — In-game description
The Royal Bow is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a bow with a base attack of 38, though this may be increased by certain bonuses. Link can obtain Royal Bows from various Hinox encountered in specific areas of Hyrule often wearing them on their necklaces along with other valuable weapons. He can stealthily climb onto a sleeping Hinox and steal the bow off their necklace or grab it when a Hinox is stunned after hitting its eye. In addition to Hinox, Silver Bokoblin, Lizalfos, and Moblin variants occasionally wield "Royal" series weapons including Royal Bows.
This bow was originally presented by the King of Hyrule to only the most talented archers in the land. Its design was apparently used as the basis for Royal Guard's Bow which was made using Ancient Sheikah technology to combat Calamity Ganon but despite having high attack power it lacked the Royal Bow's durability, which made it inferior and unsuitable for combat, in contrast to the Royal Bow impressive combat capabilities.
