Dark Pit will fire a dark arrow. Silver Bow does not have as long of a range as its counterpart and cannot be curved as much, but it has a slightly faster traveling speed, deals more damage, and possesses higher knockback, making it a more effective damage-racking and KOing option at the cost of being less effective for edgeguarding. Its range can be increased by fully charging it, similar to Pit's version.
Special Move customization was added in Super Smash Bros. 4. These are the variations:
The Silver Bow appears in Kid Icarus: Uprising as a usable weapon. It is always Dark Pit's weapon as a non-playable character during land stages, starting with the final boss fight against him in Chapter 6.
Dark Pit's use of the Silver Bow to fire dark arrows, which the weapon did not do in Uprising, may be a reference to Dark Pit's appearances in flight stages in that game, namely the ones in Chapter 6 and Chapter 9. During those stages, Dark Pit wielded a First Blade, Pit's default weapon in Uprising and the most basic type of Blade; however, Dark Pit's version fired shots of darkness, unlike the player's version firing light shots.
