10 Zelda Items That Are Immediately Made Pointless After You Get Them
10. Bow - Spirit Tracks
The bow is a staple in Legend of Zelda, being available in every

You receive the bow in the Fire Temple, the fourth temple in
the game, before receiving the Bow of Light in literally the next temple. The Sand
Temple forces you to use the Bow of Light to activate certain switches, and
ultimately defeat the boss at the end of the temple.
Why then did we receive a lesser version of the bow in the
previous temple? It makes almost no sense to include the same item twice in the
game, let alone in back to back temples.
Normally the bow will get certain ammunition to make it do
different things, like in the case of Ocarina of Time where you can obtain fire,
ice, and light arrows. However, to create a completely different bow that does
