The Shining Bow (シャイニングボウ Shainingu bou) is a Bow that is introduced in Fire Emblem Fates. Imbued with the special property of inflicting magical damage, the Shining Bow can be used in close-range combat, although it compensates for these strengths by being incapable of triggering critical hits or offensive skills. The Shining Bow is best paired with characters that have high magic.

In Fates, along with the Sidelong Yumi, the Shining Bow is one of the only bows that can attack from a range of 1-2. This gives it greater flexibility on the battlefield than most other bows. Compared to the Sidelong Yumi, the Shining Bow has much better might and the ability to double attack; however, the Sidelong Yumi can trigger criticals and activate offensive skills.

In Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, the Shining Bow is known as the Radiant Bow (光の弓 Hikari no yumi, lit. Light Bow). It retains the effect of dealing magical damage and grants the ability to deal effective damage against Terrors.
