Momiji with the Heavensong Bow and Hayabusa with the Fiend's Bane Bow.

The Heavensong Bow (天歌弓 Tenkakyu?, Heavensong Bow) is the projectile weapon used by Momiji in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge.


A Japanese bow traditionally carried by Dragon Shrine Maidens. From times of old, the Heavensong Bow has played a central role in the Heavensong rite, in which the shrine maidens pluck the bowstring like an instrument to drive away evil spirits. The astounding power of arrows launched by its resilient, woven-leather bowstring is like a miracle unto itself, and the bow, carved from a sacred tree, is wrapped with a cloth given to Momiji by the children of the village, in prayer for her safety.

The Heavensong Bow as seen in the Weapons Screen.

  • The Heavensong Bow works exactly the same as the Fiend's Bane Bow wielded by Hayabusa.
  • Using this in mid-air keeps her airborne longer, and makes it difficult for her enemies to aim at her.
