Bows are a weapon class introduced in Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. They are the only "ranged" weapons found in any game, though this doesn't do anything as there is no script that relates to range in any way. Also, there are very few bows in comparison to other weapon classes like swords.

Bow have a very limited usage as only 2 people in the entire game can equip them, Karis and Amiti. However, some bows can provide very good effects at their point in the game and the best bow is a good weapon for an end-game perspective.
