The Great bow is a recurring weapon in the Dragon Quest series. Befitting its name, it is often depicted as a bow much larger than avarage.


Dragon Quest V[]

In its debut title, the Great bow has an attack bonus of +100. It can be purchased in Precaria for 37,000 gold, and can be equipped by Sancho, Dwight and various other recruitable monsters.

Dragon Quest VI[]

The Great bow is a weapon equippable by Carver, Terry, and Goowain, and it can be bought in Greedmore Valley for 37,000 gold and sold for 27,750 gold. In this title, they have attack bonus of +110 and a Style bonus of +25.

Great bows are also one of the items that can be upgraded at the Fashion Forge for 20,000 gold, increasing its Style bonus of +65. Once the bow has been upgraded, it will sell for 31,500 gold.

Dragon Quest VII[]

The Great bow has once again an attack bonus of +110 and a style bonus of +25. It can be purchased for 37,000 gold but only from the Premium Bazaar final evolution of the Immigrant Town in the original Sony PlayStation version, and can be sold for 18,500 gold. The Hero and Aishe can equip it, and technically so can Kiefer, although it is not possible to obtain through normal means while he is a member of the party.

In the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, the great bow can only be acquired as a normal drop from Lumberdraks or an Überkilling machine as a boss by accessing some of the DLC Tablets. Furthermore, Kiefer loses the ability to equip it.

Dragon Quest VIII[]

The great bow, like all other bows, can only be equipped by Angelo, and it has an attack bonus of +95. It can be purchased for 28,000 gold in Tryan Gully and sold for 14,000 gold.

The great bow is also one of the ingredients of the Odin's bow, the strongest bow available, made by combining it with a Cheiron's bow and an Eros' bow in the Alchemy Pot.
