- This article is about the special move. For the weapon used within the move, see Silver Bow (weapon).
The Silver Bow is Dark Pit's standard special move in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It involves Dark Pit using his signature weapon of the same name from Kid Icarus: Uprising.
Upon using the move, Dark Pit shoots a dark arrow from the bow that can be charged by holding down the button, and aimed in one of three directions (left, right, and up) while charging. Compared to Pit's Palutena Bow, the arrow does not travel as far and cannot be controlled as well, but it deals more damage.
Like the Palutena Bow, the custom variations for this move in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U are the Piercing Bow and Guiding Bow (named Bow of Piercing and Bow of Guidance in the PAL version, respectively). Piercing Bow takes longer to charge and the arrow takes longer to control, but the arrow deals more damage and can travel through opponents. Guiding Bow allows greater control over the arrow as it travels, but the shots move slower and do not deal as much damage.
