In the Stone Medicine World Li Qiye met Jian Wushuang, the most talented archer in their generation. He used an arrow made of first four words: "Lin Bing Dou Zhe (临兵斗者)" to kill her.

The Nine Words True Bow is a True Word Treasure with nine words forming a mantra: "临兵斗者, 皆阵列前行".
|It is difficult to translate the mantra into nine english words, so I will use pinyin, instead of translation, to trace the using of different arrows.[note 1]|
