Royal Guard's Bows are a powerful type of Bows found within Hyrule Castle. A Royal Guard's Bow, spawns above the fireplace in Princess Zelda's Room. Another one spawns inside the Castle's armory.

Prior to the second Great Calamity, Royal Guard's Bows were made by the Sheikah using Ancient Technology to fight the Great Calamity.[1] Royal Guard's Bows make a trade between firepower and Durability, as they have a higher strength but has lower Durability.[1]

If Link speaks to Parcy at Riverside Stable, she will tell him about the Weapons once used by the Royal Guards of Hyrule Castle, expressing sadness she could never find any of them.[2] This will begin the Side Quest "The Royal Guard's Gear". Royal Guard's Bows are one of the Weapons Link can bring Parcy. She will recognize it immediately, asking to see it.[3] If Link allows her to, she will thank him and express a desire to find her own pieces of the Royal Guard's Series.[4] Parcy will give him a Gold Rupee as a reward.[5]

Royal Guard's Bows are made of metal, and will therefore attract Lightning if they're equipped during storms. They will also sink if they're dropped in water, but they can be picked up with the Magnesis Rune. Finally, they won't burn if they touch Fire or if they're exposed to a Scorching Climate.

I used to sneak in there to salvage ancient treasures, but it's too dangerous to go in there now. These days it's surrounded by an eerie mist and savage machine-like creatures. Back when it was safer, I went in looking for this ultra-rare equipment that once belonged to the royal guard. It's legendary among collectors, but I was never able to find any..." — Parcy (Breath of the Wild)
