* Grey and Khita in ''VideoGame/AtlasReactor'', both characters on TheStraightAndArrowPath in a futuristic sci-fi setting, have bow-like weapons that shoot bolts of energy. Grey has an entirely solid crossbow that shoots bolt-shaped blasts of energy, while Khita has a longbow that can shoot both bolts of energy and what seems to be solid arrows (albeit ones that ignore gravity).

* The [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/Fujin_Yumi Fujin Yumi]] from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' is partially into type 2 since it lacks a physical bowstring. Instead, an energy based bowstring manifests when it's wielded by its rightful owner.

** The fan-made "[[http://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Phantom_(3.5e_Equipment) Phantom]]" enchantment is essentially the magic equivalint of this, alowing a bow to fire pink energy arrows (even without a string) and letting crossbows and firearms to work without ammunition, shooting blue energy instead and only requiring you to recycle the firing mechenisam (i.e. pulling back the flintlock on a musket).
** Finally, the [[LaserBlade Soulknife]] class has a PrestigeClass that changes its psionic knife to a psionic bow, in accordance to the second version of this trope. Like everything else about the Soulknife, [[AwesomeButImpractical it sounds a lot cooler than it actually is, given its stats on paper]].

* The Crystal bow in ''VideoGame/{{RuneScape}}'', made out of elven crystal, has well over two thousand inherent charges, each of which creates one glowing green energy arrow. It's not a truly popular weapon, though, as it grows weaker the less charges are remaining, and each one is one-use, as opposed to conventional ammunition. This, and the bow turns into a small piece of crystal once the charges are depleted, and the recharge itself is highly expensive (almost a million ingame coins at first, the cost comes down to a fifth of the original as the bow attunes itself to you, though).
