The Crossbow is an item from the Legend of Zelda series. Link's sole weapon in Link's Crossbow Training, it is capable of long range attacks similar to a bow; additionally, it can be charged up to fire a Bomb Arrow and can even be enabled to fire fully-automatically if Link hits a flashing green enemy. The Crossbow is controlled using the Wii Zapper, creating a realistic experience for the player.

Link's Crossbow Training is the only game in which Link wields a Crossbow. Some enemies, such as Bulblins and Hyrule Guards, use crossbows, as well. Link's Crossbow, however, seems to be more finely crafted than the others.
