Phrenic Bows are a type of Bow passed down through the Sheikah tribe.[1] By concentrating before pulling the string, the user can enter a first person view that allows them to shoot distant targets as easily as those nearby.[1] They're most commonly found in Treasure Chests in and around Lake Hylia and West Necluda. There is also a Lizalfos that uses a Phrenic Bow at the skull rock base north of Sahasra Slope in the Lanayru Wetlands.

Sheikah archers, such as Impa's bodyguard Cado, utilize Phrenic Bows in Kakariko Village. They have a wooden construction, and thus they will burn if exposed to a source of Fire or a Scorching Climate. As a result of this, however, they do not attract Lightning during thunderstorms, and they will float if dropped in water.

Cado is equipped with a Phrenic Bow, which Link can take a picture of with the Camera Rune to add its entry to the Hyrule Compendium. Additionally, Link can find two more mounted inside of Cado's House, though their model is part of the environment and the Camera Rune does not register them, despite sharing the same design as the Phrenic Bow}.

Trivia

  • Due to a glitch, Cado's Phrenic Bow may become unequipped when he's not on guard duty, however it can be easily fixed by sitting by a Campfire or sleeping at the Shuteye Inn.
