The Dragon Bow increases the wielder's Attack by 135 points. The Dragon Bow itself is a pure element weapon, aligned with Mars, meaning standard attacks with the bow take the wielder's Mars Power and the target's Mars Resistance into consideration when calculating damage.

The Dragon Bow is found in a treasure chest in Tonfon, located just outside of the palace. As A Bow-class weapon, the Dragon Bow can be equipped by Karis and Amiti. It has 2 Unleashes: Double Shot (ダブルショット, Double Shot?) and Flame Shot (フレイムショット, Flame Shot?). Double Shot is a Jupiter-based Unleash that multiplies damage by 1.6. Flame Shot is a Mars-based Unleash that multiplies damage by 1.5; Flame Shot also has a chance of reducing the target's Attack by 25%.

The Dragon Bow's usefulness largely depends on when the player retrieves it. If the player goes to Tonfon soon after they get the ship, the Dragon Bow will be a good upgrade over the weapons Karis and Amiti will be holding. However, it will generally be a placeholder for either the Verdant Sword or the Masamune. If the player waits to grab it, they may find that the Dragon Bow is outclassed by the weapons they already have.
