Endowed with magic
The Green Arrow is an item featured in The Shadow Prince. It is given to Link by Impa during the indoor archery match, who greatly suggests to the young hero that he use it to beat Charles of Moria since the arrow contains magic. With it in hand, Link will have a choice of picking between using the Red Darknut Arrow, Impa's Green Arrow, or his usual Blue Arrow.
If Link chooses the Green Arrow, he will feel the power radiating in his hand; however, once he shoots it, it will land way off the bullseye, making Charles the winner. When the young hero looks back at Impa to ask what happened, she just shakes hear head and confirms that the arrow that she gave him was indeed magical, but that some powerful force must have thrown it off, making Link suspicious of Charles.
- "'Link,' she says. 'Use this.' She shoves a green arrow into his hand. 'Why?' Link asks. Impa pinches Link's cheek. 'Magic,' she says and disappears back into the crowd." (The Shadow Prince (Mammoth) pg. 83)
- "'It's way off the bullseye!' someone near the target cries. 'The winner is Charles of Moria!' the king proclaims." (The Shadow Prince (Mammoth) pg. 75)
- "Link feels his heart drop. He looks at Impa. 'What happened?' The old woman shakes her head. 'That arrow I gave you was magic. Some powerful force must have thrown it off.' 'Hmm,' Link says grimly. He stares at Charles. 'The more I see of Sir Charles, the more I wonder what he's really up to.'" (The Shadow Prince (Mammoth) pg. 75)
