The Onion Arrow in Final Fantasy XII.

Arrow (, Ya?), also called Bolts, are projectiles shot from bows or crossbows in the Final Fantasy series. They serve as the counterpart to bows and the arrows that are shot are consumed. Most arrows have an element or status effect associated with them. In some games that feature arrows as a type of weapon, when a character runs out of arrows and attacks an enemy, they'll attack with their bare hands.


Final Fantasy III[]

Arrows are used in conjunction with bows, and are used mainly by the Ranger class, though Onion Knights can also equip them, and Freelancers, Warriors, Black Mages, and Red Mages can equip some of them.

Final Fantasy IV[]

Arrows are used in conjunction with bows, which in most versions can be wielded by Rosa, Rydia, Edward, Palom, Porom, Cecil, and Cid.

In all 2D releases, attacking with a bow consumes a single arrow, and if the user runs out of arrows they would attack Unarmed. In the 3D release, equipping arrows with a bow provides an infinite supply of them and only Rosa can equip bows and arrows in these releases.
