Bow Crest (Japanese: 耐弓の紋章 Bow Endurance Emblem) is a defense crest which debuted in Fire Emblem Warriors. Bow Crest comes in five tiers, Roman-numbered from I to V from lowest to highest. The Bow Crest is a crest that allows its user to lessen the damage taken from bows; each successive tier increases the damage reduction.
