A bow is a flexible arc which shoots aerodynamic projectiles (arrows or quarrels, sometimes stones) by means of elastic energy.


The art of using a bow and arrow is called Archery (弓術, Kyūjutsu). Essentially, the bow is a form of spring powered by a string or cord. As this string is drawn, energy is stored in the flexible limbs of the bow; the energy is transferred to the arrow when the string is released, projecting it much farther than a weapon could be thrown.

The ninja of the Tsurugi Clan use Chakra Arrows, and some members of the clan can even use chakra bows.

Samurai of the Hattori Clan are also seen using bows and arrows, utilizing their Aether Release to have flaming arrows.

The arrows can be imbued in elemental chakra to boost its efficiency. Example; Raiden imbues his with lightning chakra to boost the arrows speed and offensive power
