!Palutena's Army

[[folder:Pit]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/MinamiTakayama (JP), Creator/LaniMinella (EN, ''Brawl''), Troy Lund (EN, ''[[TheOtherMarty Uprising]]'' [[TheOtherMarty E3 Trailer]]), Antony del Rio (EN, ''Uprising'' & ''Smash 4'')
!!!Debut: ''VideoGame/KidIcarus''
[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_423px-250px-pit_uprising_6296.png]]

-->''"Sorry to keep you waiting!"''

The leader of Palutena's personal guard: though he is young, he is the greatest warrior angel in Palutena's forces. While Pit has wings, they're just for decoration. Usually he can't fly—it's a bit of a touchy subject.

* TheAce: It was said in game that he's the most competent member of Palutena's army, that's actually an understatement. He may not be able to fly on his own, but that hasn't stopped him from ''taking on entire armies by himself.'' In addition, he's literally gone through hell and back (as well as earth and space). Magnus notes that Pit is basically the only member of Palutena's army who can pull his own weight. During the course of ''Uprising'', he manages to kick the ass of literally ''everyone with a character portrait'' except for three people. [[labelnote:*]]Poseidon, Viridi, and Dyntos. But all three are justified for different reasons. Poseidon only showed up for Ch 7 to help Pit get to the Seafloor Palace and was never an enemy to begin with. For Viridi, circumstances in the plot forced the two of them to fight alongside each other rather than against each other. And Dyntos is implied to be even more powerful than Hades, who Pit could barely defeat without outside help.[[/labelnote]]
* {{Adorkable}}: You better believe it! His love for Nintendo video games, fanatical loyalty to Palutena, and general goofiness make him endearingly dorky.
* AFatherToHisMen: A sequence of dialogue in chapter 17 shows that he values the centurions' lives more than his own, and perhaps more impressively, the feeling is mutual.
* AffectionateNickname: For a certain use of the word "affectionate", Hades very often calls him "Pitty Pat".
* AintTooProudToBeg: In chapter 23, when faced with the possibility of being [[ToiletHumor defecated]] out of Hades' WombLevel, he absolutely freaks out and resorts to this:
-->'''Pit''': Okay, okay, fine! I give up! Please spare me! ''Please!''
* AllLovingHero: Pit is the kindest and most morally upright character in the game, friendly to everyone he meets. He always tries to see the good in everyone and will often work with his enemies if it means saving people. He will even forgive his enemies if they prove that they can reform. But if you prove to be truly beyond redemption, ''you will die''.
* AlmightyJanitor: Granted he makes use of weapons when not all of his opponents do, but he's still a servant of the gods that takes them on (including his boss) and wins. Though this is only in terms of the Gods he's fighting against. In the idol text and dialogue, he's mentioned to be Captain of the Guard.
* AndIMustScream: In chapter 18, he's stuck in a ring with no way to move or communicate with the outside world and the only way to get help is to hope someone grabs the ring so he can control them. Pit was very lucky that Magnus didn't leave the ring behind.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Downplayed. Pit is quite cocky and is a bit of a showoff, but he's a pretty friendly guy and does not view anyone as beneath him.
* ATragedyOfImpulsiveness: Pit's HotBlooded nature can make him quite reckless at times. See NiceJobBreakingItHero.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Is the Captain of Palutena's Guard and the strongest soldier in her army, embarking on many perilous missions by himself.
* BadassAdorable: He's a cute, {{Adorkable}} angel with the mindset and body of a teenager. That said, he is anything but harmless.
* BadassBoast:
** His rally cries are meant to be this, but they don't really impress anyone. However, he can give some pretty good ones such as the one to Medusa and Hades. Special mention, however, goes to Chapter 21, where he and Dark Pit pull a perfectly sychronized BadassBoast by simply FinishingEachOthersSentences.
--> '''Pit:''' Filth of the land, hear our words!\\
'''Dark Pit:''' And see our actions!\\
'''Pit:''' I am Pit! Servant of the Goddess of Light!\\
'''Dark Pit:''' And I am Dark Pit! Servant to none other but myself!\\
'''Both:''' ''Together we will rain death upon you!''\\
'''Dark Pit:''' So anyone who wants to die, step right up!\\
'''Pit:''' And anyone who doesn't want to die, too bad!\\
'''Both:''' ''Aww yeah!''
** There's also the one he gives to Hades during their final battle, right before he vaporizes him with the Great Sacred Treasure's Final Strike.
-->'''Pit''': I fight for all creatures living and breathing! I fight for all departed souls still hanging in limbo! But most of all, I fight for Lady Palutena, the Goddess of Light! And it's in all their names that I will crush you, Lord of the Underworld! I won't let you descerate another soul!
* BadassInCharge: Of the Centurions.
* BadassNormal: Pit has no actual superpowers of his own. All of the powers he uses in the game are granted to him by Palutena or Viridi. Does it diminish his ability to take on powerful gods and towering monsters? You wish.
* BashBrothers: With Dark Pit, eventually.
* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: Though it's never explained if he can actually breathe while in space. It's entirely possible that Palutena's magic helps him. It should be noted, however, that he cannot breathe underwater as he was very adverse about holding his breath during Chapter 7.
* BattleCry: Pit loves doing this to look cool in front of his opponents. His AR description even says he practices to make them cool. These end up parodied most of the time as they rarely impress or intimidate anyone. Particularly in Chapter 23 where Pit attempts to do the rally cry he and Dark Pit did in chapter 21 by himself only to fail miserably. Hades doesn't miss a beat in Lampshading it.
-->'''Hades:''' My innards have ''so'' longed to hear your battle cry. How could you forget the words?
-->'''Pit:''' I didn't have time to rehearse! I've been busy fighting evil, okay?!
* BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame: A fun trick players can do is have Pit beat a boss with the matching weapon. (Beat Twinbellows with the Twinbellows Cannon, Gaol with the Gaol Blade, Hewdraw with the Hewdraw Club, etc.)
* BerserkButton: Has a few good ones that you should never press.
** Bringing up or mocking why he can't fly is a touchy subject.
** Also, don't make fun of Palutena, don't insult Palutena and definitely don't '''harm''' Palutena in his presence as his reactions range from shock to a very understandably all out rage. When Hades makes jokes or unhappy comments regarding Palutena, Pit understandably goes mad. It's better shown when Hades comments that Pit may have to kill his Goddess in the Chaos Kin Arc and Pit calmly yet in a rather scary tone tells Hades to shut up. Later on when he's performing the trials to obtain the Great Sacred Treasure, Dyntos puts Palutena to sleep and pits a copy of her against Pit. Pit suffice to say is not pleased at all and ends up calling Dyntos out for this act. Thankfully his concern about this copy being the real comes to an end when the copy shows 'her' real face resulting in Pit being happy that he chose to attack. His victory taunt also shows how unimpressed he is with Dyntos for making a copy of Palutena, Dyntos was probably just amused. Upon learning from Viridi that the Chaos Kin was controlling Palutena, Pit becomes enraged.
-->'''Pit:''' Take that you fake![[note]]His victory taunt upon defeating Pseudo-Palutena.[[/note]]
-->'''Pit:''' Where do you think '''YOU'RE''' going?![[note]]During the aerial section and upon finding the real Chaos Kin, Pit becomes very angry when he sees it flee.[[/note]]
-->'''Pit:''' [[YouMonster You're going to pay]] [[ThisIsUnforgivable for what you've done Chaos Kin!]][[note]]Pit's TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to the Chaos Kin.[[/note]]
** Lastly, don't threaten humanity at all, later on Pit also react the same way if nature is threatened. Medusa, Viridi, Chaos Kin then Hades all learn this the hard way when they each get their turn to be punished. If he's pressed to it, Pit will make you pay for your actions and you'll come to regret it at some point.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's a friendly little angel, quick to wisecrack and joke and is one of the nicest guys in the game, but if he's given a reason he can and he ''will'' kick your ass, no matter who you are. And damn if he doesn't make it look awesome.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Pit is probably the biggest ButtMonkey in the entire series, but that does not stop him from being one of the best soldiers in Palutena's Army.
* {{BFG}}: The Great Sacred Treasure's gun, which he uses to finish of Hades, dwarfs his body.
* BifurcatedWeapon: His bow.
* BigEater: Pit eats a lot of food... as long as it isn't eggplants, tempuras or vegetables in general.
* BishieSparkle: Pit sparkles when he does his little speech to Pandora before their battle in ''Uprising''.
* BlackAndWhiteMorality: Notably the only character in the series who runs on this in contrast to everyone else's BlackAndGreyMorality.
* BodyguardingABadass:
** His job as Captain of the Guard is to protect Palutena despite the fact that she's a goddess and is more than capable of taking care of herself. Best exemplified in Palutena's reveal trailer for ''Smash 4''.
** It's more justified in ''Uprising'' since Pit is on of the three strongest characters in the series[[labelnote:*]]Hades exceeds him without the Great Sacred Treasure and Dyntos exceeds them both. Along with everything else in the series, apparently.[[/labelnote]] and Palutena is a GlassCannon at best. Brought to horrifying clarity during the Chaos Kin battle, where Pit can kill Palutena '''by accident''' because she was between him and the Chaos Kin.
* BodyHorror: When Pit is turned into an eggplant or tempura it comes off as this given that he only has legs and can't really fight back. To make matters worse, he can be ''eaten alive'' if he's a tempura, which is one of the only instant KO's' in the game. And then Chapter 18 has him stuck in a ring.
* BodySurf: In Chapter 18, Pit goes from a little girl, to a dog, to Magnus before he manages to reunite with his own body.
* BoisterousBruiser: For the most part, Pit is very confident in his combat abilities and is not easily intimidated in battle.
* BookDumb: "[[NeverLearnedToRead I never learned to reeeead!]]"
* BowAndSwordInAccord: His Bow can separate into twin blades for melee combat, effectively combining the two tropes into one.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Pit constantly lampshades tropes and cliches about the game and its bosses, like how the title "Dark Lord" is overused and so on.
* BreakTheCutie:
** [[WhamEpisode Chapter 18.]] Pit's entire faith in Angel Land and fighting for justice is destroyed in a blink of an eye, the people that considered him Captain are now attacking him, and the BrainwashedAndCrazy Palutena calls him a "puppet" and says she doesn't want to deal with him anymore. He gets over it (for the most part) in the next chapter, but it doesn't change the fact that those words will probably stick with him for a long time.
** It gets worse. Chapter 19, Hades and Viridi constantly lay the smack down of insults on him, and without Palutena to support him, Pit progressively gets quieter with the chapter (but he does get louder when he's asking Viridi if he's at the top of the tower yet). And then comes Chapter 20, where some of his insecurities are let loose as Palutena continues to berate him for being useless and naive. When he finally saves her from the Chaos Kin, though, he has to watch as her soul is ripped out of her and she turns to stone. And when he spends chapter 21 trying to get it back and succeeds with the help of Dark Pit, the Chaos Kin wanted to make sure Pit suffered and tried to take Dark Pit down with him. Pit's response is to dive in and save him, causing his wings to burn up in the process. And even though chapter 23 treats Pit's SanitySlippage moment lightly, given what happened in the previous chapters, it's not hard to think he actually lost it.
* BrokenAngel: His wings burn up in Chapter 21, when he saves Dark Pit from Chaos Kin.
* BuffySpeak: "That sounds hurty."
* BunnyEarsLawyer: A very capable fighter and leader despite his childish ways.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: A heroic example. When confronting Thanatos in Chapter 7, the God of Death is insulted that Pit doesn't remember him, causing the angel to quip that he's faced so many enemies that he can't remember them all.
-->'''Pit:''' Sorry. There's just so many foes and only one of me.
* ButtMonkey: He's this in Uprising where it's quite difficult to find a character that ''doesn't'' make some sort of comment at Pit's expense. Also Lampshaded.
-->'''Pit''': "What is this, "Everybody Pick On Pit" day!?"
* CallOfTheWildBlueYonder: Pit wishes he can fly by himself, instead of having to use the Power of Flight or the Pegasus Wings.
* CarFu: Is more than willing to run over enemies in his [[CoolCar Exo-Tank]].
* CatchPhrase:
** "I'm finished!", [[LampshadeHanging at least according to Palutena]]:
--> '''Palutena''': "Listen to that swagger, you're toughened up nicely. Remember when you'd be like "I'm finished!" all the time?
--> '''Pit''': "I... still say that... a lot..."
** Averted in ''Of Myths and Monsters'' where you just turn into a ghost with a halo and float away.
** Brought back in ''Uprising'''s death screen, complete with the original 8-Bit text and music.
** He also says "Prepare to meet the light" a number of times in Uprising.
* CaptainObvious:
--> '''Pit''': Hey, look! It's an Exo-Tank!
--> '''Hades''': Hey, look! Who cares?
* TheChewToy: Much of the humor in ''Uprising'' comes at his expense.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Pit strives to save everyone he can, no matter whether they are enemy or ally, even if it's to a personal cost to himself. In Chapter 21, he didn't hesitate to save Dark Pit and begged Viridi to activate the Power of Flight knowing full well this would kill him.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Whenever Pit is talking to himself, he comes up with the strangest things imaginable. He even impersonates Palutena and Viridi at one point.
* ColonelBadass: There are multiple references in the game that Pit is one of the higher-ups in Palutena's army. He also notes during the Chaos Kin arc, when replacement MissionControl Viridi acts like he's enlisted under her and commands him to clean latrines, that he's a commissioned officer. Possibly a FourStarBadass instead; it's not shown if anyone besides Palutena outranks Pit.
* CombatPragmatist: While not to Dark Pit's extent, some of the Powers Palutena grants him (I.E. Playing Dead and Vanish) has Pit using some underhanded tactics.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: He's prone to this at times.
* CoolCrown: Wears a Laurel Crown in ''Of Myths and Monsters'', ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'', and ''Uprising''.
* CosmicPlaything: A more direct example than most, as the [[JerkassGods forces that be]] ''really are'' ribbing on him mercilessly.
* CovertPervert:
** If this conversation in ''Uprising'' is any indication.
--> '''Palutena:''' That's not all I can see, Pit. I can also see what's in your heart.\\
'''Pit:''' Oh... heh heh. That's really... something...\\
'''Palutena:''' So you'd better not be thinking about anything... ''naughty''.\\
'''Pit:''' What?! How did you--\\
'''Palutena:''' Just kidding! Seriously, reading hearts through laurel crowns?\\
'''Pit:''' [[ImplausibleDeniability I know... I was... also kidding...]]
** The Japanese version has Pit admitting that he is a pervert... just a little bit.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: While he does have plenty of harebrained moments and is a genuine goofball besides, Pit is still much more competent than he lets on.
* DeadpanSnarker: Surprisingly one of the least snarky characters [[WorldOfSnark compared to everyone else]], but he still has his moments.
* DeathIsCheap: He and all of Palutena's army are revived when they die. Unlike the Centurions, Pit is not weak because he has a motivation to toughen up: protect Lady Palutena.
* {{Determinator}}: Pit ''never'' gives up. Not even when the world is in ruins, Palutena has become BrainwashedAndCrazy, and he's been trapped in a ring for three years. Once Pit sets his sight on a mission that he can't afford to give up on, he'll plow through anything that tries to slow him down, best example is during the Chaos Kin Arc when he's in the Chaos Vortex. He flies through the place searching for the Chaos Kin and once Viridi helps him find the real one, he becomes incredibly determined to defeat it even when his Power of Flight is running low on time. Then once on land, he completely tells Viridi that if the only way to defeat the Chaos Kin and save Palutena's soul is to endure several tedious battles that he would outlast all the enemies hurled at him. He does just that for at least half of the time until [[TheCavalry Dark Pit]] shows up to assist. Sure you can slow him down for some time using methods that may seem pretty sound, but Pit will eventually reach you while he's making his way to where you are located and take you out once he finds you.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: It's his job description!
* TheDitz: Downplayed and Subverted. Pit's [[{{CloudcuckooLander}} kooky]], can't read, and [[HotBlooded rushes into fights]], but he's also incredibly experienced in combat and as shown in Chapter 23, he's perfectly capable of coming up with tactics on his own.
* DoesNotLikeSpam: Despite his BigEater tendencies, he's shown to ''hate'' vegetables, especially eggplants. This stems from his unpleasant encounters with the Eggplant Wizards.
* DualWielding: His Bow, Claw, and Orbitar weapons all come in pairs.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Unless you count the powers Palutena grants him, he has no superpowers of his own.
* EmptyEyes: In Chapter 18 of ''Uprising'', Pit's body is shown to have these without his soul to guide it.
* EmptyShell: Without his soul, Pit's body is a mindless husk with no emotions or willpower of its own. The Chaos Kin takes advantage of this after imprisoning Pit's soul in a ring, commanding it to indiscriminately kill humans and monsters alike.
* {{Expy}}: Of the two Greek mythology heroes: Icarus and Perseus. With the former, while not a hero, Icarus is notorious for flying too close to the sun and getting his wings burned in the process, leading to his death. This is Pit's fate at the end of Of Myths and Monsters, as well as happening twice in Uprising (chapter 17 and 22). For the latter, the entire story of Perseus from saving his mother figure by slaying Medusa with the help of the Goddess of Wisdom, Athena, with one of the weapons being a shield to protect yourself from Medusa's stare in the original game.
* ExtremeOmnivore: According to Palutena, this angel will eat anything - especially the unusual stuff and "questionable things off the ground".
-->'''Pit:''' [[BreakingtheFourthWall "FLOOR ICE CREAM GIVES YOU HEALTH!"]]
* FamilyUnfriendlyViolence: A victim of this at the end of Chapter 21; his wings are horribly burned, to the extent that the ''bones'' are visible.
* FanDisservice: He gets a ShirtlessScene in Chapter 21...because his tunic is burnt up along with his wings, and his wings being burnt have left him critically ill. It flips back into {{Fanservice}} in the next chapter when he's revived via the Rewind Spring, where he shows off quite a muscular physique for someone who looks so young.
* FinishingEachOthersSentences: Leads to Pit and Dark Pit finishing a motto together in Chapter 21.
* {{Foil}}: For two characters.
** To Magnus. Both are skilled, veteran warriors, but their methods are as different as night and day. Pit is the HotBlooded, "Shoot-first-don't-bother-with-the-questions" guy who charges in guns ablazing while Magnus is the more tactical one, always planning his moves out. This is best shown in Ch 18 where Magnus actually advises Pit on how to proceed.
** To Dark Pit. The two are on opposite ends of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism. Pit is the optimistic idealist who believes in the good of everyone, human and gods alike. Dark Pit, however, is fully aware that humans are bad and the gods are just as worse. Also, while Pit is extremely loyal to Palutena, Dark Pit holds no allegiance to anyone but himself.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Whilst Dyntos is discussing how he added more monsters than necessary to Palutena at the end of Chapter 24, Pit is flying the Great Sacred Treasure in the background... only to then crash on the ground.
* GoMadFromTheIsolation: Starts to show shades of this in chapter 23. He even points out that he needs to escape before he really does lose it.
* GoodIsNotSoft: Pit's usually the NiceGuy most of the time, but if Palutena gives the order to fight, ''he's not holding back''.
* HandicappedBadass: He's an angel who cannot fly. It doesn't slow him down in the slightest.
* TheHero: The brave and idealistic angel beating down the forces of evil.
* {{Heroic RROD}}: He nearly dies saving Dark Pit from Chaos Kin, and manages to do so... at the cost of Pit's wings burning up when he catches him. He's out of commission for Chapter 22 as a result.
* HeroicResolve: In spades. If there's even a ''small'' chance he can save someone, he'll find a way.
* HoldingBothSidesOfTheConversation: His doing this in Chapter 23 makes it very clear that the Gods constant deriding of him is having a negative effect, because during this time when he's inside Hades and thus cut off from them, he subs ''himself'' in for them because of how used he is to their banter. His Viridi impersonation is an obvious mockery, but his Palutena impersonation is disturbingly accurate in wording.
* HotBlooded: In one particular moment Magnus gives him advice on how to proceed tactically, while Pit in his hot blooded glory just goes in guns blazing (it's almost [[LampshadeHanging Lampshading]] the nature of the game).
* HypercompetentSidekick: He's essentially Palutena's NumberTwo with all that it entails and he's very, very good at his job despite his goofy and dorky personality.
* HypocriticalHumor: In a random conversation that may occur in chapters 19 and 20 if Pit is using a cannon, he says that humans cannot be trusted with grenade launchers because they're go around shooting everything. The irony is not lost on Viridi.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Even Palutena herself is unable to sway his sense of righteousness, and the physical manifestation of his "dark side" is neutral at worst.
* InfinityPlusOneSword: The Great Sacred Treasure, used in the final battle against Hades. It was previously the Three Sacred Treasures, but they have been rendered obsolete as Pit no longer needs them to defeat Medusa, and they prove completely ineffective against Hades.
* InfinityMinusOneSword: The Three Sacred Treasures are this as of ''Uprising'' where they are displaced by the Great Sacred Treasure.
* InnocentBlueEyes: Has blue eyes and is the most alturistic character in the game.
* InTheNameOfTheMoon: Pit does this a whole lot in complete adoration to all that is Palutena and light beating darkness, and even his special idol description says that he practiced to make one. Parodied a few times as well. Special mention goes to his speech with Pandora which features an over-the-top sequence that even has him sweep his hair with BishieSparkle.
--> '''Pit''': Pandora! Underling of Medusa floating before me! It's time for you to atone for your crimes! I am Pit, servant of the Goddess of Light! And [[PunctuatedForEmphasis You! Are! History!]]\\
'''Palutena''': *Deadpan* What was that all about?
** He gets a surprisingly serious one right before fighting Medusa in Chapter 9, with poses specifically designed to showcase the Three Sacred Treasures (although it looks a bit daft if you choose not to wear them).
--> '''Pit:''' Listen well, all you demons of the Underworld! In the name of the Goddess Palutena, defender of all that is good! Those who reside in darknesss will be made to face the light!
* IronicName: Although it probably comes from the -pid part of Cupid, it's still kinda funny that the winged guy is named 'hole in the ground', which Viridi takes note of.
* JackOfAllStats: In gameplay. He's fast, but not that fast. He's strong, but not that strong. His strength lies solely in the weapon and the player's skill.
* TheJuggernaut: The primary playable version of this trope, although it's mostly shown in Chapters 19-21 and 23-Final. This trope comes into play when Pit becomes dead serious to accomplish his objective and it turns him into a serious LightningBruiser. It's more present in his motivation and dialogue than his in-game durability and power unlike the other beings who actually prove this trope.
* {{Keet}}: He has energy to spare. This trait is especially noticeable when he's around Magnus.
* KidHero: Played with. Pit has the appearance of a young teenager, and has the personality to match, but he's older than he appears.
* KirkSummation:
** To Medusa in chapter 9 after he tells her to [[ShutUpHannibal shut up.]] Also doubles as TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.
--> '''Pit:''' You shut your mouth, Medusa! Lady Palutena is ''nothing'' like you! Who turns people to stone? Who poisons rivers? Who reduces cities to rubble? And who is leading the Underworld invasion of the land and heavens?! ''Not'' Lady Palutena! ''You're'' the one responsible for all this, Medusa!
** He also gives a good one to Hades, who for the entire game up to that point had been constantly riffing on Pit's seeming IdiotHero nature. Bear in mind, this happens during a point where Pit is completely at Hades' mercy and cut off from every ally he has (even Palutena) and where Hades had insulted his intelligence yet again merely seconds beforehand.
--> '''Pit:''' We're all responsible for maintaining a certain order in the universe. As lord of the Underworld, you know this better than anyone. But your greed has thrown everything out of order. You've overstepped your bounds by exploiting and desecrating souls. And you've disrupted the balance between the earth, the heavens, and the Underworld.
* KleptomaniacHero: Played with:
--> '''Pit''': Yeah! A treasure box!\\
'''Magnus''': That's clearly a trap. Think about it. Who would leave treasure just lying about outside?\\
'''Pit (at player's behest):''' ''*Opens treasure box. Monsters appear.*''\\
'''Magnus''': What is wrong with you?\\
'''Pit''': If there's a treasure box, I open it! I can't help it!\\
'''Magnus''': OK, we'll see how long you'll survive with that strategy!
* KnightInShiningArmor: Considering he's a literal angel and a trained warrior, it's to be expected.
* LadyAndKnight: The Knight to Palutena's Lady.
* LetsGetDangerous: At the beginning of Chapter 21, instead of waiting for the door to open, he busts the door down.
-->Pit: Hold on, Lady Palutena! I'm coming for you!
* LightIsGood: An angel with white clothing who is a servant of the Goddess of Light and TheHero of the series.
* LimitBreak: Each of Pit's weapons has a special attack that can be used during air battles.
* LiteralMinded: At times, such as this exchange in Chapter 2:
-->'''Magnus''': So, you're here for a slice of the pie, too?\\
'''Pit''': Huh? Pie? Where?
* LuminescentBlush: He gets flustered very easily and does this as a result, as shown when Phosphora teases him. This is Lampshaded by Palutena.
-->'''Palutena:''' [[ButtMonkey He embarrasses easily.]]
* MadeOfIron: Pit can take quite a beating for someone of his size. Over the course of the game, he's been thrown around, beaten up, burned, electrocuted, ''eaten,'' having fallen from the sky on multiple occasions, nearly got his ''wings burned off and near death'' and comes out no worse for wear. Ch. 21 in particular had him engaging the Chaos Kin in a dogfight, literally fighting his way through ''13 waves of replicated enemies from'' '''''every''''' ''faction'', fighting the Chaos Kin ''again'' on foot and showing no signs of tiring.
* MindControlEyes: His soulless body in Chapter 18.
* MistressAndServantBoy: In his relationship with Palutena, though Pit is the Captain of the Guard.
* MixAndMatchWeapon: All of his weapons from ''Brawl'' onward do double duty as both melee and ranged, even swords, bows, and clubs.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone:
** His reaction after defeating Dark Lord Gaol, where it's revealed that [[SamusIsAGirl he's actually a she and she's actually a human.]] Palutena thankfully cheers him up by telling him that Gaol is still alive.
** Takes a much more serious tone in Chapter 19 when he kills the Chariot Master. Both he and Viridi felt his death was completely pointless and regret it had to come to that.
* MoralityPet:
** For Viridi. The only explanation given for why she helps him and never sees any consequences for her actions is that she's developed a soft spot for him.
** It's also implied his innocence and trust makes him one for even Palutena herself somewhat, which is likely why he was sealed in the ring when she gets possessed.
* MultiMeleeMaster: In ''Uprising'', most of his clubs are used for melee attacks, and he also goes hand-to-hand with claws, wields blades, and of course has his trusty bows which split into twin swords.
* NeverLearnedToRead: By his own admission, in the English localization. In the Japanese version, he instead says that he wanted to die with a full belly.
* NiceGuy: Kind, compassionate, and very easygoing.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Nice job Pit, you just killed the Phoenix. Now Hades can set his master plan in action. And then you destroyed the Lunar Sanctum. Have fun dealing with the EldritchAbomination you unleashed. Though to be fair, Pit had no choice but to kill the Phoenix, as [[XanatosGambit doing nothing would allow the Phoenix to attack humanity.]] Also, [[PoorCommunicationKills Arlon never explained what the Lunar Sanctum's purpose was]], so Pit couldn't know what would happen.
* NumberTwo: To Palutena.
* OhCrap: Given the entire plot in the game, Pit gets a good amount of moments where his lines directly come from him realizing how bad his situation is or if he thinks that something bad will happen. In the former, it's usually when the enemies keep swarming him, for the latter, his reaction comes from entering or being in certain areas for some time. Then there are times where he plays this trope for the laughs although to him it may not originally be very funny.
-->'''Pit:''' Uh-oh...[[note]]This is very close to [[ThisIsGonnaSuck 'you just didn't say that just now, did you!?']] when Phosphora calls Palutena 'ma'am' which is one of the latter's [[BerserkButton berserk buttons]].[[/note]]

-->'''Pit:''' [[OhCrap So...many...enemies...]]

* OlderThanTheyLook: In the first game he's a trained soldier, yet in ''Uprising'', which takes place a full [[RealitySubtext 25 years later]], he's still practically a teenager. [[WordOfGod Sakurai]] even tweeted Pit's body is that of a 13 year old.
* OneManArmy: While Medusa, Hades, and Viridi send in hordes of monsters to attack, Palutena just sends in Pit. She ''does'' have plenty of Centurions, but they're all so weak that Pit is basically the main muscle of her army. He's just that good. Lampshaded by Magnus in Chapter 18.
--> '''Magnus''': You're the only member of Palutena's Army that can pull his own weight. Don't get me started on the Centurions. Sure, they're a ton of them, but they're all pretty flimsy.
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: Resembles a classic winged angel, but he can't fly on his own. Some of his weaponry also stray away from the norm for angels.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: A heroic and lighter example than most but still prevalent. Any place Pit enters will inevitably be destroyed. Lampshaded by Viridi in chapter 12.
--> '''Viridi''': This coming from the flying munitions depot himself? You're as destructive as a hundred Reset Bombs!
* PintsizedPowerhouse: He's the same size as a regularly human, but he can take down creatures that reach colossal sizes.
* PowerDyesYourHair: In the first game Pit's hair starts off light brown, becomes green at 2 strength, purple at 3, dark brown at 4, and blue at 5. In the best ending, his hair goes back to being light brown in his adult form, and it stays that colour regardless of strength in every other game.
* RainOfArrows: The Bow's special attack.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red Oni to anyone's Blue Oni most of the time, particularly Dark Pit and Magnus. Though he dipped into Blue Oni territory during ''Uprising'''s Chapter 20, [[TranquilFury in which he was unusually serious.]]
* ReverseGrip: When separating his bow into twin blades, he tends to hold one in this way.
* RoaringRampageOfRescue: The entire description of his actions in Chapter 20 and the first part of his reasons in the following chapter. This combined with his nearly unrivaled [[{{Determinator}} willpower]] makes it almost impossible to slow him down at all. So far only the Chaos Kin was able to slow him down during his rescue mission thanks to throwing 13 waves of enemies at him without slowing down and later on at Dark Pit as well but that barely slows either of them down.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Woe to anyone who gets the sheer [[TranquilFury devotion]] and [[UnstoppableRage attention]] by pressing making him go [[BerserkButton ballistic]]. This combined with his completely monstrous [[{{Determinator}} willpower]] results in him being able to endure and come out as the victor in many battles that he normally wouldn't be able to handle alone. Although Pit's demonstration of this trope is more of a version of TranquilFury, he uses this trope so effectively when he sets his sight on an enemy he can't afford to lose to. This trope is the second half of his line of reason in Chapter 21, resulting in him trashing at least 7-8 waves of enemies by himself before losing his momentum just because he's that '''ticked off''' at the Chaos Kin. In his final battle against Hades, Pit performs this trope to the extreme by literally taking on Hades in order to kill the Underworld Ruler for his massacre of innocent lives and causing many unneeded wars.
* SanitySlippage: Played with and [[DefiedTrope defied]]. During Chapter 23, Pit starts talking to himself and acts like he is on the verge of losing his mind... but, at the end of his rant, he lampshades how he needs to get out of Hades before he REALLY goes crazy.
* SarcasmBlind: Which is ironic, considering he has his own DeadpanSnarker moments.
* ScrewYourself: There are quite a few fans who think he'd make a cute couple with his clone, Dark Pit.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Sensitive Guy to Magnus' Manly Man.
* ShipTease: With Viridi in Chapter 16 and with Phosphora in Ch 14.
* ShirtlessScene: [[WrongGenreSavvy No, it's not related to his love for hot springs]]. Rather, it's when his wings burn off when rescuing Dark Pit from the Chaos Kin.
* ShockAndAwe: The Blade's special attack calls down lightning bolts.
* ShutUpHannibal:
** To Medusa in Chapter 9, followed by a KirkSummation.
** Also to Hades in Chapter 23, though only just barely.
* SillyRabbitCynicismIsForLosers: He has a song that goes "you gotta stay upbeat, upbeat, upbeat. Or you're gonna be dead meat, dead meat, dead meat". Dark Pit, naturally, thinks it's annoying.
* SkilledButNaive: He's a skilled and powerful fighter, but he's somewhat dim, and he fully believes in BlackAndWhiteMorality.
* SmarterThanYouLook: Despite being a HotBlooded CloudCuckoolander and the fact that he NeverLearnedToRead, Pit is actually quite cunning and much smarter than people give him credit for when he puts his mind to it.
* TheStraightAndArrowPath: As expected from an archer.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: The Wise Guy to anyone's Straight Man, especially Dark Pit and Magnus.
* SubmissiveBadass: In his relationship to Palutena. He's more than capable of doing things on his own, but he has enough respect to refer to her for advice.
* SuperSentaiStance: He does one when he first fights Medusa in Uprising, [[SoBadItsGood and it]] is awesome.
* SwordAndSorcerer: The Sword to Palutena's sorcerer. Pit is the main weaponmaster of the game while Palutena relies on light magic.
* TemptingFate: This exchange between him and Palutena at the end of Ch 13, three years before everything goes to hell in a handbasket.
-->'''Palutena:''' But what's that thing breaking free?
-->'''Pit:''' Oh, I'm sure it's nothing.
* ToHellAndBack: As mentioned above, his job takes him all over the world. From Skyworld, to the Overworld, to the Underworld, to outer space, and even different dimensions.
* TooMuchInformation:
** Says the acronym when Arlon mentions his... loins.
-->'''Pit''': TMI! Nobody wants to hear about your loins!
** Magnus seems to have the same reaction when Pit mentions his "sacred buns".
* TookALevelInBadass: Shown if you clear Chapter 9 without using the three treasures. In the first one, Pit could only take down Medusa with the three sacred treasures. In Uprising, he can take her down without them.
* TranquilFury: Only demonstrates this once and that's in chapter 20 when Hades mockingly presents the very real possibility that he may have to kill the possessed Palutena. His response is to calmly, bluntly tell Hades to go home... or in other words, to ''go to Hell.''
* TwentyFourHourArmor: He tells Magnus he ''never'' takes off his uniform. Even while bathing. Ew. Apparently, it saves on laundry!
* TwinTelepathy: During certain portions of the game, he and Dark Pit seem to be able to connect at certain points. Viridi even comments on it.
* UndyingLoyalty:
** For Palutena. He even gives an awesome ShutUpHannibal to Medusa when she tries to give Palutena TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.
** Even when Palutena was BrainwashedAndCrazy, he would not give up on her, not even when forced to fight her. Viridi lampshades his dedication.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: While Pit doesn't merit ''all'' the blame, him destroying the Lunar Sanctum did not end well for anyone involved. See NiceJobBreakingItHero.
* VSign: After defeating Hades, in ''Uprising''.
-->''Victory!''
* WeaponOfChoice: Nine different classes.
** CoolSword: Blades are [[JackOfAllStats well-balanced with melee and ranged shots]].
** SimpleStaff: Staves have [[SniperRifle excellent range]], but [[CripplingOverspecialization are less-than-impressive at close range]].
** WolverineClaws: Claws are [[FragileSpeedster fast, but rely on rapid-fire and quick combos to deal damage]].
** TheStraightAndArrowPath: Bows have the best homing capabilities and [[BifurcatedWeapon split into two blades]] for melee. The Palutena Bow has become his signature weapon outside of ''Uprising''.
** PowerTattoo: Palms don't slow Pit down, but [[DeathOfAThousandCuts don't exactly have the best damage output]].
** CarryABigStick: Clubs [[MightyGlacier deal massive damage, but are hard to lug around]] and [[CripplingOverspecialization have no continuous fire]].
** {{BFG}}: Cannons fire [[StuffBlowingUp explosive charged shots]], but don't have the best range.
** AttackDrones: Orbitars hover at Pit's sides, trading [[MoreDakka damage output for rate of fire]].
** PowerFist: Arms have [[CloseRangeCombatant powerful melee attacks]], but subpar range.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: He won't hesitate to put the smackdown on Underworld monsters, the Forces of Nature, or the Aurum... but as soon as he discovers that Dark Lord Gaol was a human woman upon defeating her, he's absolutely horrified and has a MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment. Furthermore, when Viridi brushes off his objections to her genocidal hatred of humanity by accusing him of being the same way towards Underworld forces, Pit replies that it's ''not'' the same because unlike her, ''he's'' destroying evil ("It's totally different! Look it up.").
* WideEyedIdealist: Despite the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism in ''Uprising'', Pit is very optimistic and has high hopes in the human race, despite the game showing time and time again that the [[JerkAssGods Gods are Jerkasses]]. He is also fiercely loyal to Palutena and Angel Land, no matter what. The fact that this view is attacked when Palutena gets brainwashed does affect him, though even then he doesn't stray from what he believes in, even if it means beating some sense into Palutena herself.
* WingedHumanoid: He's an angel, so it's to be expected.
* WingsDoNothing:
** Played with. By default, Pit can't fly -- as a result, his wings are merely decorative and, at most, can slow his fall (''Of Myths and Monsters''). However, he can fly if he uses one of the Three Sacred Treasures or the Power of Flight. Also, in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games, he has temporary flight as his third jump.
** It's implied that they may contain his lifeforce, or at least that he can't live without them. When he burns his wings to the bone, it nearly kills him. Part of the reason Palutena wants to heal him so badly is certainly that he loved to fly and wanted nothing more than to fly on his own, but it seems like having burnt wings is quite literally killing him and the only way to save him is to restore his wings.
* WouldHitAGirl: When most of them are trying to kill you, it's pretty justified.
* YesMan: To [[UndyingLoyalty Palutena.]] Phosphora even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] it.

[[folder:Palutena, Goddess of Light]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/AyaHisakawa (JP), Creator/AliHillis (EN, ''Uprising''), Brandy Kopp (EN, ''Smash 4'')
!!!Debut: ''VideoGame/KidIcarus''
[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_palutena_uprising_8994.jpg]]

-->''"Despite the Underworld invasion, the people haven't given up hope!"''

The goddess of light and ruler of Skyworld, Palutena goes to great lengths to protect her people, and those who dwell on the surface lands below.

* {{Adorkable}}: She may be an elegant goddess, but Palutena has a lovable, trollish GenkiGirl personality and behaves similarly to many geek girls in RealLife. Taken UpToEleven in ''Palutena's Revolting Dinner'', where she's probably at her cutest!
* AndIMustScream: She suffered under the Chaos Kin's control for ''three years'', being unable to control her body while her soul was constantly under threat of being consumed.
* AttackDrones: Her boss battle has her summon two orbs of light that follow Pit around and fire lasers at him.
* BadassBookworm: Going hand in hand with her role as [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]], Palutena is the most knowledgeable god in the game.
* BadassInCharge: Of Skyworld and the Centurions.
* BadassInDistress: Throughout the course of the series she has a distressing (no pun intended) habit of being caught off-guard...
* BathtubScene: In the beginning of ''Palutena's Revolting Dinner, Pt. 2''.
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: The Goddess of Light, the BigGood of the game, and very beautiful.
* BerserkButton: ''Don't'' call her ma'am.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Palutena's one of the more pleasant Gods in the game for the most part (though she still has her [[GoodIsNotNice vices]].) However, as Hewdraw learned the hard way and as her BossFight shows [[labelnote:*]]not that [[PintsizedPowerhouse Pit]] doesn't still end up kicking her ass like he does everyone else's, though[[/labelnote]], if forced to take a more direct approach, she'll happily remind you why she's the Goddess of Light.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: She's more GenkiGirl than goddess, but she's far from harmless.
* BeyondTheImpossible: During ''Palutena's Revolting Dinner'', when she discovers that the Vegetable Monster is vulnerable to water, she uses her Power of Malestorm to create a storm ''indoors.''
* BigEater: Judging by her banter with Pit, during which she'll randomly talk about everything from the great meal they could make out of the Kraken to Phoenix eggs making wonderful omelets. Likely where Pit gets it from; Viridi has to snap the both of them out of ordering a pizza during the [[AlienInvasion Aurum invasion]] of all things.
* BigGood: The goddess of light and ruler of Skyworld.
* BluntMetaphorsTrauma: She insists she always gets those sayings correct, so maybe not.
* BossBanter: In ''Uprising'' with Pit, and when he's busy either Viridi or Hades. Especially shown in her boss fight, where most of her attacks are telegraphed by a specific phrase.
-->''"Time for a sacrifice!"''
-->''"This might sting!"''
-->''"Poor you!"''
-->''"Cover your eyes!"''
-->''"Fly away now!"''
-->''"Come out!"''
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: During the Chaos Kin arc in ''Uprising''. The catch is you have to beat her up without killing her or else you fail the mission.
* BreakoutCharacter: Since she got so many fans, she gets her own special and become a playable character in ''Smash''.
* ButtMonkey: "Palutena's Revolting Dinner" puts her in this position, getting hung upside-down, attacked by carrots, and having giant pumpkins explode in her face, all because she was distracted while adding a potion.
* CainAndAbel: The Abel to Medusa's Cain.
* CaptainObvious: Most of her dialogue revolves around her stating the obvious in the Japanese version instead of teasing Pit. Lampshaded by Viridi in Chapter 15.
-->'''Viridi:''' All hail the goddess of obvious.
* CharacterExaggeration: Palutena messes with Pit '''''far''''' more often in the English dub than the original Japanese.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Can come off as this due to her tendency to change the subject and bring up food at random times.
* CoolCrown: A golden crown with a red jewel embedded in it.
* CoolSword: Does not use one, but the Palutena Blade is modeled after her.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Green hair and green eyes.
* DeadpanSnarker: Not as often as most characters, but she has her moments.
* {{Expy}}: Of the Greek goddess of wisdom Athena, right down to her immature GoodIsNotNice attitude. She actually started out as an interpretation of Athena herself, under the name "Parthena" (an alternate rendering of "Athena".) Transliteration to Japanese further rendered this as "Palutena", which for whatever reason wasn't reverted back to the correct Latin spelling when ''Kid Icarus'' was brought overseas and thus stuck as her actual name globally. Combined with DivergentCharacterEvolution as her character was fleshed out and her primitive NES appearance developed into a unique design of its own, and she's much less a direct interpretation of Athena nowadays and more her own character, even if she remains her analog in-universe.
* ExtremeOmnivore:
** Similar to Pit, it's implied she'll eat anything. She even makes jokes about how the idea of Pit being turned to a crisp from the lightning might sound delicious, but that she would pull him out of the area where the lightning struck.
** It's also demonstrated in ''Palutena's Revolting Dinner'' where despite the fact that the carrots have been overdosed with her rejuvenation potion and are now ''sentient'', she ''still'' intends to eat them.
* FanservicePack: She's noticeably curvier in ''Smash 4'', though her design is otherwise unchanged from her ''Uprising'' appearance (itself a more youthful refinement of her initial ''Brawl'' redesign, which in turn was much more glamorous than her original look.) Each successive game seems to push her a little bit further into MsFanservice territory, despite not starting out as one.
* FantasticNuke: Her Palutena Glam Buster or the Sacred Goddess Clobberlaser which she uses to finish off Hewdraw.
* FashionableAsymmetry: Subtle, but there; she's only wearing a stocking on her left leg and her right leg wrap is VERY slightly different from her left leg wrap.
* FlunkyBoss: Her boss fight has her occasionally summon Centurion Knights to aid her.
* {{Foil}}:
** To Medusa. Both of them ruled Skyworld together, but the two are quite literally as different as night and day. Palutena is the benevolent Goddess of Light, Medusa is the vindictive Goddess of Darkness. Palutena has light powers to contrast Medusa's dark magic and her clothing is white to contrast Medusa's purple dress. Palutena cares deeply for humanity and wishes to protect it. Medusa despises humanity and wishes to see it destroyed.
** To Viridi. Both characters help Pit out during the game and both of them have similar powers, but their stances on humans are polar opposites of each other. Viridi believes that humans are inherently evil and destructive and incapable of change while Palutena is aware of their flaws, but believes that humans can grow and learn.
* TheGadfly: ''Uprising'' has her messing with Pit non-stop. Her pranks range from not warning Pit when she's going to speed his wings up to ''deliberately using him as bait to lure out one of the Hewdraw heads'' (again not surprising since she's based on Athena). Hell, there's a little comic for the post-game option of turning off all dialogue:
-->'''Pit:''' I'm in trouble here, Lady Palutena!\\
'''Palutena:''' ''([[DissonantSerenity serene smile]])'' '''You can do it, Pit.'''
* GenkiGirl: If her special anime short and her constant teasing with Pit are anything to go by, she's just a bit like this. Of course, this makes her look less heavenly than previously envisioned.
* GodIsFlawed: This is why she takes a strong stance on protecting humanity. She's fully aware of how flawed humanity can be, but also knows that gods can be just as bad, if not worse than humans and when they fight, humans are innocent bystanders caught in the crossfire.
* GodOfGood: She's the Goddess of Light who helps Pit protect humanity from evil. Though she is hinted to have a darker side to her.
* TheGodsMustBeLazy: Invoked: Magnus outright accuses her of "sleeping on the job" in Chapter 2, much to her annoyance.
* GoldAndWhiteAreDivine: Her outfit is predominately white and gold, and she is of course the goddess of light.
* GoodIsNotNice: According to the other Gods and Goddesses, Palutena isn't really the nicest of them all as Pit makes her out to be. Given that she is a [[TheGadfly Gadfly]] and some of her actions are questionable, it's not hard to see why everyone is wary of her. Though she's still much more pleasant than the other gods.
* GreenEyes: To match the green hair.
* HeroicWillpower: As pointed out by Viridi in Chapter 21, the fact that Palutena was able to resist having her soul devoured by the Chaos Kin proves she has incredible willpower.
* HerosMuse: Most of what keeps Pit going is his devotion to her. He even outright admits that the reason he fights is because of her. Whether this is an idealistic sort of hero worship or if he just has a crush on her is left largely to the viewer's imagination - there's evidence for either, or both.
* HotGoddess: Oh yes. Especially in ''Smash 4'', although she was already getting pretty cute as of Uprising.
* HumansAreFlawed: She's fully aware of the flaws of humanity, but at the same time, she's aware that gods can be just as bad, if not worse. She protects them because while humans may fight with each other a lot, when it comes to wars between gods, they're innocent bystanders.
* JerkassGods:
** Played for laughs.
-->'''Pit:''' But you would NEVER abuse your power, right?\\
'''Palutena:''' Of course I would! It's all part of the Goddess's job description.
** Most of the time, anyway. More and more hints at a darker side of this appear as the game goes on, such as when close to the initial Medusa battle and ''especially'' during the "Ring of Chaos" arc.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She enjoys making a ton of jokes at Pit's expense, but she does genuinely care about him.
* KingOfAllCosmos: She can certainly dip into this, and many other characters tend to point out when she screws up/teases too much/acts hypocritical. Her apotheosis of this is seen whenever she cooks.
* LadyAndKnight: The Lady to Pit's Knight.
* LargeHam: Well, more of a ''small'' ham when compared to [[WorldOfHam everyone else]], Pit included. Her attempts at it sound decidedly more forced than the rest, meaning you'll either be laughing or facepalming in response. Even when possessed by the Chaos Kin, she's still quite over the top, and very expressive in her boss battles.
* LethalChef: Figuratively and literally in ''Palutena's Revolting Dinner.'' Though nothing in the short actually suggests she's a bad chef. Just a little too easily distracted while handling powerful potions.
* LightEmUp: She ''is'' the Goddess of Light after all.
* LightIsGood: The Goddess of Light and the BigGood of the series.
* LightIsNotGood: When possessed by the Chaos Kin.
* LongRangeFighter: Prefers to keep her distance from opponents and fire energy blasts. However, her appearance in ''Smash 4'' shows she can definitely handle herself up close.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Has a mirror shield that she uses in battle.
* MaamShock: Dislikes it so, even if the lifespan of gods is implied to be eternal.
* MamaBear: Toward Pit If chapter 21 and 22 aren't evident enough. In Viridi's own words, she was willing to ''cheat death'' in order to save Pit in chapter 22.
* MindOverMatter: Chapter 18 shows she has powerful telekinesis, able to toss pieces of Skyworld itself at Pit. Carries over into ''Smash 4'' where some of her attacks have her telekinetically twirling her staff at opponents.
* MissionControl: Until Chapter 18, when she becomes BrainwashedAndCrazy, leaving Viridi to fill her position. Fortunately, it's not permanent.
* MistressAndServantBoy: In her relationship with Pit, though Pit is the Captain of the Guard.
* AMotherToHerMen: Even though she can and does revive the Centurions when they die, she still doesn't like to see them get hurt, so she rarely sends them to fight.
* MsFanservice: Increasingly. The [[http://i.imgur.com/5hfz2.jpg Bathtub Scene]] in ''Palutena's Revolting Dinner'' is a stand-out example. ''Smash 4'' heavily plays this up, with several MaleGaze shots during her newcomer trailer and even a ''pole-dance taunt'' in-game.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: After being saved from the Chaos Kin, the expression she has clearly says this. Especially when Pit nearly gives up his life for Dark Pit, burning his wings up in the process.
* MysteriousWaif: Interestingly, her rare AR card idol mentions that her history and motivations are little known. Even in ''Uprising'' she gets some questions that she doesn't answer truthfully.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: There is virtually ''nothing'' this girl can't pull out of her bag of tricks. It's basically Power of (''insert whatever power the plot needs here.'')
* NotSoAboveItAll: For a goddess who rules over a mystical land, she sure doesn't act like it, if ''Uprising'' onward is any indication. This is no surprise given that she's based on Athena.
* OpaqueNerdGlasses: She does this trope in one scene, but you're most likely going to miss them since you're busy blasting enemies away[[labelnote:*]][[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/palutenawithglassesbetter_3045.jpg If that's the case, here is a lovely photo of it]][[/labelnote]]. Alternatively, she does use them in two extra tutorials' artwork (if you bothered to watch the How To Play videos, that is).
* PhysicalGod: DistressBall aside, she's a very powerful goddess and had no qualms demonstrating it. Best shown in the Air Battle of Chapter 3 when Pit's fighting Hewdraw. If he takes too long to defeat him, Palutena will use her Sacred Goddess Clobberlaser (Or Palutena Glam Blaster), a ''giant column of light'', to ''oneshot'' it. She also showcases other godly powers throughout the game such as her ''sneeze causing a meteor to change course'' at one point during Chapter 13 or creating an opening through a large storm cloud to get to Phosphora's Thunder Cloud Temple in Chapter 14. Chapter 18 has her telekinetically tossing large pieces of Skyworld itself at Pit. Gets taken to its logical conclusion in Chapter 20, where she serves as the chapter's boss and if her dialogue to Pit in ''Smash 4'' is any indication, she may have only been using ''a fraction of her actual power''.
* PimpedOutDress: In the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games and ''Uprising''.
* PluckyComicRelief: During ''Palutena's Revolting Dinner''.
* RapunzelHair: Her hair reaches her knees.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: While her true age is unknown, she's obviously much older than she appears. She is young by goddess standards, though, as WordOfGod states she's 22 years old in human years. Lampshaded in the banter between her and Phosphora in Chapter 14.
-->'''Phosphora:''' You're right, I'm sorry. You're ''much'' too young to be called "ma'am".\\
'''Palutena:''' You know as well as I do the lifespan of gods. And how about ''you?'' What's ''your'' age?\\
'''Palutena and Phosphora:''' I'll tell you ''mine'' if you tell me ''yours!''
* RequisiteRoyalRegalia: Dresses quite elegantly as befits a goddess.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness:
** Dips into this when she's teasing Pit.
-->'''Palutena:''' The monster situation is quite clamant.
-->'''Pit:''' Is... that a good thing?
-->'''Palutena:''' You know. It's importunate, or unpropitious.
-->'''Pit:''' Are you still speaking English right now?
-->'''Palutena:''' I'm sorry Pit. I didn't mean to confuse you. Here, let me make this easy for you. Big monsters kill Pit! Grr!
-->'''Pit:''' Ah! That makes perfect sense! Thank you!
** And when Pit faces off against the Hewdraw head.
-->'''Palutena:''' Despite my winsomeness and equanimity, I do have a strong streak of rascality.
-->'''Pit:''' I don't even know what that means!
* ShesGotLegs: And loves to show them off, particularly in ''Smash 4'' during her taunts.
* ShipperOnDeck: An easy to miss moment shows her teasing that Viridi has a soft spot for Pit.
* ShowSomeLeg: She loves to show off her legs. Especially in ''Smash 4''
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: ''Palutena's Revolting Dinner'' has her enduring some very AmusingInjuries, and in ''Smash 4'', she's subject to the same punishment every other fighter is.
* TheSmartGirl: She's one of the smartest Goddesses out there, according to the others. And it shows: she has information on (almost) every single enemy, and she's very rational in comparison to the other Gods. Then again, she is based on Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom.
* StaffOfAuthority: Like the other goddesses, she has one too.
* StoryBreakerPower: She's shown to be strong enough to easily win the day if she did things herself. That said, she's happy playing MissionControl to our protagonist.
* SwordAndSorcerer: The Sorcerer to Pit's Sword.
* TheTease: Started becoming this as of ''Uprising'', and ''Smash 4'' takes it UpToEleven.
* TakenForGranite:
** In ''Of Myths and Monsters'' when Orcos kidnapped her at the end.
** Also during ''Uprising'', although she did it to herself as a precaution, as revealed by Petrified Palutena's idol.
* UnwittingPawn: After the Chaos Kin breaks out of the Lunar Sanctum, it possessed Palutena for three years and used her to wreak havoc on the human realm.
* WomanInWhite: To further cement her status as the Goddess of Light.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Palutena has long green hair to match the green eyes.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Centurion]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_727px-centurionuprising_8454.jpg]]
Palutena's ordinary soldiers. Unlike the other gods, she usually doesn't bother sending them out because they're rather weak and she doesn't like to see them get hurt, and Pit is already a strong enough military on his own.

* AbnormalAmmo: Centurion Strongarms will throw ''dumbbells'' at Pit for a ranged attack.
* BladeOnAStick: The weapon of choice for the Centurion Knights.
* DeathIsCheap: Through dialogue and their Idols, ''Uprising'' reveals that the Centurions can be revived. Pit believes this is why the Centurions are so weak. They have no incentive to get stronger if they'll just get revived.
* DubNameChange: "Ikaros" ("Ikaroses"?) in the Japanese version.
* DumbMuscle: The Strongarm Centurions are this. Even Pit says they're all brawn, including their brains.
* EliteMook: The Centurion Knights.
* EscortMission: Two Centurion Strongarms need to be defended by Pit in order for him to reach Pyrrhon during the second half of Chapter 17. If both are killed the first time, Palutena will summon two more, but if those are killed, its a NonStandardGameOver.
* {{Flight}}: Despite their tiny wings, they can fly.
* GagNose: All Centurions have large noses.
* {{Irony}}: They're more of a threat when they turn against their leader.
* JavelinThrower: Centurion Knights will toss their spears for a ranged attack.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Centurion Knights come equipped with shields. Unfortunately for them, they can easily be destroyed.
* OneHitPointWonder: In the first game, it only takes one hit to bring one down. ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' takes it a step further by having them expire as soon as they hit their target.
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: Their wings are on their heads rather than their backs.
* RedShirtArmy: These guys die so much that even Palutena jokes about it.
* TakenForGranite: In the original, Medusa turned them all into stone. In order to get them back, Pit had to use a hammer to free them.
* TopHeavyGuy: Centurion Strongarms.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Pit. Especially shown during the Aurum arc where despite knowing full well they would probably be killed, they still helped Pit defeat the Aurum.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: In ''Uprising'', the Strongarm Centurions are capable of powerbombing Pit and Magnus when they appear as enemies in Chapter 18 and 20, although they can't grab you while you're in the middle of a melee combo.

-->''"Hey there, Pit-stain."''

A mysterious black-winged angel. He can soar through the skies without being granted the power of flight -- and seems determined to face Pit in battle.

* {{Adorkable}}: He's no different from his light counterpart.
* AntiHero: He started out as an opponent for Pit who was unaffiliated to the Underworld Army despite being created by Pandora's Mirror of Truth, only fighting Pit for his own reasons. But after realizing that [[CantLiveWithoutYou killing Pit means he'll die as well]], he warms up to Pit and becomes one of his most important allies.
* AnthropomorphicPersonification: Downplayed. He's supposed to be the embodiment of Pit's dark side, but Pit is so inherently kind and pure that the only negative traits he embodies are Pit's brashness, sharp tongue, arrogance, and thrill for battle.
* ArchEnemy: Seems to have found one in Pandora.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: As a manifestation of the darkness in Pit's heart, Dark Pit represents some of the traits Pit keeps to himself - such as a rather arrogant personality and his thrill for battle, which for Dark Pit goes beyond being HotBlooded into being an arrogant BloodKnight (Or at least at first)
* AscendedExtra: He was originally just a palette swap of Pit in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosBrawl''.
* BadassAdorable: Like his light counterpart, he can kick ass, as shown in chapter 9 when he literally falcon kicks the mini boss at the beginning when Pit can't do any damage with the Sacred Treasures. Ironically in the Japanese version, kicking the enemy actually resulted in him being injured instead of coming out with no scratches like in the English version.
* BadassBaritone: It's Pit's voice with a deeper inflection.
* BadassDriver: Dark Pit has a tendency to take the Lightning Chariot and ram it at his opponents when Pit needs help.
* BashBrothers: With Pit, eventually.
* BerserkButton: Do NOT call him "Pittoo!"
* BlackAndGreyMorality: Unlike Pit, who sees the world in black and white, he sees things in black and grey. While the Underworld Army are indeed the villains, the Gods they serve aren't any better. He even calls the Gods out on how they treat the world with their powers and place the blame on humans; Palutena even admits he's right.
* BloodKnight:
** Implied by the following exchange, though he gradually grows out of it after some CharacterDevelopment:
--> '''Palutena:''' Pittoo just isn't happy unless he's fighting someone.\\
'''Dark Pit:''' You say that like's a bad thing!
** And earlier in Chapter 9:
--> '''Pit:''' What are you doing here?
--> '''Dark Pit:''' The same thing you're doing, pummeling Underworld fools. I'm just way better at it.
--> '''Palutena:''' Maybe you also sensed that Pit could use your help.
--> '''Dark Pit:''' Don't make me laugh. Now enough talky talk! There's fighting to be done!
* BreakTheHaughty: According to Chapter 21, the reason for Dark Pit [[HeelFaceTurn switching sides]] is because he found out that he can't live without Pit. He won't go into details on what happened to him while Pit was in the ring, but it wasn't pleasant, to say the least. Pit [[HeroicSacrifice nearly dying]] for his sake is enough for him to fully switch sides and be Pit's ally.
* BroughtDownToNormal: After Chapter 22, he loses his power to fly independently as a result of Pandora's revival.
* BrutalHonesty: If the [[JerkassGods Gods are Jerkasses]], he'll say it to their faces.
* ButtMonkey: He may be the ShadowArchetype of Pit, but that doesn't make him immune to the abuse his alter ego suffers. Almost every character refers to him as [[EmbarrassingNickname Pittoo]], and Pit kicks his ass several times over the course of the game.
* CanonImmigrant: He made his debut in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosBrawl'' as a [[EvilCostumeSwitch simple color change for Pit]]. He was notable for changing Pit's color more dramatically than any of the other costumes, which really only changed his tunic color and slightly changed his wings' tint.
* CantLiveWithoutYou: Dark Pit's change of heart comes when he finds out killing Pit means he dies as well.
* CarFu: Rams the Lightning Chariot into the Chaos Vortex to prevent the Chaos Kin from escaping. He also rammed the chariot into Hades so he could grab Pit and escape with him.
* CloningBlues: It's not fun being seen by the world as nothing more than Pit's EvilKnockoff and getting slammed with a nickname that basically means "spit".
* CombatPragmatist: Whether it's against Pit or the Underworld army, he has a habit of attacking them when they least expect it.
* TheComicallySerious: Hades claims he has no sense of humor. In return, Dark Pit just ignores him, unlike Pit.
* CoolCrown: Wears one just like Pit.
* DarkerAndEdgier: He's far more serious and cynical than Pit and isn't one to play nice. But if the game isn't taking things seriously, [[ButtMonkey he also won't be taken seriously.]]
* DarkIsNotEvil: He's the AnthropomorphicPersonification of Pit's dark side, but is only neutral at his worst.
* DeadpanSnarker: Being the manifestation of Pit's more negative qualities, Dark Pit is a little more loose with the snark.
* DefrostingIceKing: After some CharacterDevelopment, he softens up to everyone around him, going as far as to save Pit from death.
* {{Determinator}}: He is determined to save Pit after the latter saved his life from Chaos Kin. At the cost of losing his ability to fly, he manages to bring Pit's wings back.
* DidntThinkThisThrough: After healing Pit, he decides to fly off rather than try and explain why he helped, forgetting that he'd lost the power of flight that he stole from Pandora.
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: In Ch 22, he calls out Palutena and Viridi for damaging the world with constant wars and blaming it on humans.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Literally. The first thing he does upon being created from the Mirror Of Truth is casually backhand Pandora.
* DubNameChange: From "''Black'' Pit" in the Japanese version.
* DynamicEntry:
** In Chapter 9, he charges in from out of nowhere to deliver a literal flying kick to the Underworld Gatekeeper, dropping the boss that Pit was struggling to damage even with the Three Sacred Treasures. Palutena notes that "face-kicking isn't usually this effective."
** In Chapter 20, he comes out of nowhere to slam the Lightning Chariot into the closing portal to the Chaos Vortex, expanding it for him and Pit to enter.
* EarlyBirdCameo: One of Pit's alternate colors in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]'' is basically Dark Pit with normal Pit's eye color.
* EnemyWithout: Downplayed. He's the personification of Pit's worst qualities...but Pit is such a NiceGuy that his "worst qualities" are his sarcastic sense of humor, brashness, and stubborn behavior.
* EmbarrassingNickname:
** "Pittoo", courtesy of Palutena. He's known as Bla-Pi or Kuro-Pi in Japan, short for Black Pit or Kuro Pit, and [[SdrawkcabName Tip]] in French. Regardless of the version, he hates it.
** Hades takes it a bit farther and gives him the downright childish name of ''Pitooey''.
** He's less prone to reacting to it as time goes on in ''Uprising'', although he'll still snap at Pit for calling him that in ''Smash 4''.
** It also hasn't stuck completely. In ''Smash 4'', the others actually call him "Dark Pit" when merely talking ''about'' him, but use "Pittoo" to his face, possibly to get a rise out of him (such as Pit greeting him in Dark Pit's codec conversation, and [[{{Troll}} Palutena's]] victory quote against him.) Even the crowd calls him Pittoo when cheering for him.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Like his light counterpart, he has no superpowers of his own and the powers he uses come from gods.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: The first thing he does upon his creation is to deliver an OffhandBackhand to Pandora when she orders him to kill Pit, showing he takes orders from no one.
* EveryoneHasStandards: He's absolutely ''disgusted'' with both the Chaos Kin and Hades for desecrating and eating souls, explicitly describing Hades' usage of souls to create monsters as "the sickest thing [he's] ever heard".
* EvilKnockoff: Was supposed to be one of Pit for the Underworld forces. He's really just neutral at worst, and eventually sides with the heroes later on.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Del Rio voices him with a slightly deeper inflection than he does Pit. Not so much "evil" as "AntiHero", though.
* EvilTwin: Starts off as one toward Pit, but subverted midway through when he switches sides. Then he's more of a jerkish twin.
* EvilWearsBlack: To show his status as Pit's dark side. Downplayed in that he's neutral at worst.
* FinishingEachOthersSentences: Leads to Pit and Pitoo finishing a motto together in Chapter 21.
* FlawedPrototype: Sort of; it's stated that Pit smashed the Mirror of Truth before it finished creating Dark Pit. While there seems to be no other side effects (at least not any that have been explicitly linked to apparently being "incomplete" [[labelnote:*]]though it could be the cause of the {{Synchronization}} described below[[/labelnote]]), this is theorized by Palutena as to why Dark Pit holds no inherent allegiances, implying that a "completed" clone would've somehow been inherently loyal to the Underworld Army.
* {{Flight}}: Absorbs Pandora's power to be able to fly on his own. He loses this power in Ch 22 when the Rewind Spring revives her.
* {{Foil}}: To Pit. The two are on opposite ends of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism. Pit is the optimistic idealist who believes in the good of everyone, human and gods alike. Dark Pit, however, is fully aware that humans are bad and the gods are possibly worse. Also, while Pit is extremely loyal to Palutena, Dark Pit holds no allegiance to anyone but himself.
* ForgotICouldFly: He only uses his Pandora-stolen Power of Flight (and incredible boost it gives his ranged attack prowess) as the chapter-end boss in Chapter 6. Also, [[InvertedTrope inverted]]; after Pandora revives in the Rewind Spring, he briefly forgot that he ''couldn't'' fly.
* GoodFeelsGood: Heavily implied to be the reason he keeps coming back to save the day and help Pit, not that he'll admit it.
* GoodIsNotNice: He may share Pit's sense of justice, but he's nowhere as nice as him due to his fierce independent streak and his tendency to speak his mind. Especially shown during the Chaos Kin boss battle where if you hit him by accident, he'll hit back.
* GoodWingsEvilWings: Has dark teal wings (although they appear black in different lighting, or when he's using Pandora's powers to fly), in contrast with Pit's white wings.
* HeelFaceTurn: Probably the biggest thing that sets him apart from all the other evil counterparts of other Nintendo heroes (e.g. [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Dark Link,]] [[Videogame/SuperMarioSunshine Shadow Mario]], [[Videogame/MetroidPrime Dark Samus]], [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} Blood Falcon]], etc.)
* HotBlooded: A more subdued version, but it's still there.
* IWorkAlone: He explicitly states that he's "no pawn" and only serves himself.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Implied during the Chaos Kin arc. His soul is needed to revive the Chaos Kin according to the ash idol (and Viridi states that the Chaos Kin only went after the purest of souls), and according to Hades, Dark Pit's soul isn't your average one. Given that he's the manifestation of Pit's heart and being neutral at worse, it's quite justified that this trait be passed over.
* InSeriesNickname: Pit, Palutena, and every character in the game insists on calling him Pittoo (as in [[{{Pun}} "Pit Two"]]). And he doesn't like it one bit.
* JackOfAllStats: Much like Pit.
* JerkassHasAPoint: It's really difficult to disagree with him when he calls Palutena and Viridi out on how they abuse the world with their powers and blame it on humans. Even Palutena concedes he may have a point.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Abrasive, sarcastic, arrogant, and brash. But hardly a villain.
* TheLancer: Eventually becomes this to Pit.
* MultiMeleeMaster: Much like Pit. In Chapter 6, he can be seen wielding a Blade, Club, Staff, Palm, Cannon, and Bow. He will also be seen using whatever weapon Pit has on him when he breaks the Mirror of Truth, and in Chapter 22, he is playable, and can use any weapon in your inventory. After Chapter 6, he seems to settle into using a Silver Bow for land battle and a variant of the First Blade that shoots darkness in air battles.
* {{Naytheist}}: He dislikes taking orders from the gods and tends to view them as petty squabblers who cause most of the problems in the story... [[JerkassHasAPoint and he's not entirely incorrect]].
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: His reaction to seeing Amazon Pandora is that of confusion given that he doesn't stop attacking her and isn't convinced that's the real Pandora, whereas Palutena and Viridi are shocked and Hades is silent from the revelation.
* NotSoAboveItAll: The fact that he and Pit think the same way puts him in this category by default (as shown in Chapter 21, where they finished their motto that they both made up on the spot.)
* OffhandBackhand: To Pandora which doubles as an EstablishingCharacterMoment.
* OnlySaneMan: He tries to come off as one compared to everyone else. However...
* {{Parody}}: Of the DarkerAndEdgier EvilCounterpart character in games, like [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Shadow]]. His tendency to "fight for himself" is mocked by several characters, and a lot of his actions in general are mocked for being edgy for the sake of being edgy.
* PowerCopying: He absorbs Pandora's powers after helping Pit take her down. Downplayed, however, in that he mainly uses her power to help him fly by himself and never showcases any of Pandora's powers in his boss fights.
* PunnyName:
** Pit -> Pittoo (Pit Two).
** "Pittoo" also serves as onomatopoeia for the sound of ''someone spitting'', which makes his EmbarrassingNickname more insulting than other versions. Hades exaggerates it into the downright childish "Pitooey".
* RealityEnsues: In the English version of the game, Dark Pit arrives and performs a diving kick to take down the Underworld Gatekeeper and emerges completely unharmed, prompting Palutena to note that such a feat is usually not that effective. Sure enough, she's proven right in the Japanese version, where kicking the Gatekeeper ends up injuring his leg.
* RecurringBoss: Fought four times throughout the game, and his chapter has five different scenarios with two randomly selected each time you play plus the final time in center stage.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: As Pit's EvilTwin, he has the evil red eyes. He's a better guy following his HeelFaceTurn but you should still take warning.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Pit's red.
* ReverseGrip: When separating his bow into twin blades, he tends to hold one in this position, just like Pit.
* ShadowArchetype: Of Pit.
* SimpleStaff: One of his [[MultiMeleeMaster many weapons of choice]]. While he uses a Bow for most of the game, it's notable that there is a weapon called the Dark Pit Staff. Of course, since staffs are considered sniping weapons in ''Uprising'', he ends up fitting a [[ColdSniper different trope.]] In Chapter 6 he spends the flight section [[GetBackHereBoss "kiting"]] Pit, and one of the possible fights the game sets up with Dark Pit has him sniping at Pit from atop a mountain with his titular staff.
* SixthRangerTraitor: He was intended to be an EvilKnockoff of Pit that works for the Underworld Army, but he defected right after he was created and eventually goes on to aid Palutena's forces.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: The Straight Man to Pit's Wise Guy.
* {{Synchronization}}: What happens to Pit, happens to Dark Pit as well... well, sometimes. Whether or not this due to being a FlawedPrototype as described above or simply inherent to being Pit's clone is unknown.
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: The very first thing he did upon creation was deliver an OffhandBackhand to Pandora and help Pit take her down. Palutena theorizes that he turned on the Underworld Army because Pit smashed the Mirror of Truth before he was completed.
* {{Tsundere}}: The Japanese version of the game aims for Dark Pit being a Type A instead of the lone wolf that he is portrayed as in the English version.
* TwinTelepathy: During certain portions of the game, he and Pit seem to be able to connect at certain points. Viridi even comments on it.
* WhenHeSmiles: The ending of ''Uprising''. He also smiles whether he wins or [[GracefulLoser loses in ''Light versus Dark''.]]
* WildCard: And damn proud of it. He's unpredictable to the point you don't know who he'll side with until [[HeelFaceTurn he officially sides with Pit later on in the game.]] ''Smash 4'' reveals that he currently works for the Forces of Nature post-''Uprising'', though as he states "Viridi's interests and mine just happen to overlap," this is likely a temporary arrangement.
* WingedHumanoid: He's an angel, so it's to be expected.
* WingsDoNothing: Averted at first. Absorbing Pandora's power allowed Dark Pit to fly on his own. He loses this power in Ch 22 when the Rewind Spring revives her.
* WouldHitAGirl: Especially if she is Pandora.

[[folder:Magnus]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/KenjiNomura (JP), Creator/FredTatasciore (EN, ''Uprising''), Creator/PatrickSeitz (EN, ''Smash 4'')
[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_1magna_3247.png]]

-->''"My name's Magnus, by the way. Don't hit me, and we'll get along just fine."''

The most powerful human warrior of all. As a member of a roaming mercenary group, he has triumphed in countless brutal missions.

* AntiHero: In that he's OnlyInItForTheMoney. That being said, he's far more heroic than the standard AntiHero.
* BadassBaritone: Courtesy of Creator/FredTatasciore.
* BadassNormal: He's a human warrior who can face off against supernatural foes with nothing but his sword. Naturally, this is constantly lampshaded.
* {{BFS}}: It's so big that Pit's version of the weapon is classified as a Magnus ''Club''.
* BladeAcrossTheShoulder: His default pose.
* BrutalHonesty: Magnus doesn't pull punches nor minces words. If he's got something to say, he'll say it flat out.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: He's only a baseline human, but able to beat down and overpower the Underworld forces by himself.
* CloseRangeCombatant: He attacks solely with melee attacks seeing as how he lacks the ability to shoot projectiles with his weapon.
* CrusadingWidower: It is mentioned by Palutena and his idol description that he had lost a child to the Underworld Forces. He doesn't talk about it much, if at all.
* DeadpanSnarker: Has his moments.
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: This memorable line in Ch 2.
-->'''Magnus''': Hey, if you're chatting with your precious goddess, give her a message from me. Tell her she's been sleeping on the job! My world is on the edge of collapse.
* DualBoss: With Gaol in chapter 24.
* DubNameChange: From "Magna" in the Japanese version. Justified, Magna is the ''feminine'' form of the word in Latin.
* {{Expy}}: His whole chapter and involvement with Gaol is a WholePlotReference to ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', which would cast him as Guts.
* {{Foil}}: Serves as one to Pit. Both are skilled warriors, but unlike Pit, who [[HotBlooded charges into battle with guns ablazing]], Magnus handles situations with a more tactical approach.
* FriendlyRivalry: With Gaol, according to the Magnus & Gaol idol.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: It's implied that he goes off living the mercenary life whenever you're not with him.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Sure, he claims to be OnlyInItForTheMoney and doesn't act very polite, but he genuinely cares about other people and is open to the idea of working together with Pit.
* {{Leitmotif}}: A surprisingly heroic one for a blatant AntiHero.
* LightningBruiser: Though he's slightly slower than Pit, he can still move pretty fast. He's also strong enough to take on Underworld monsters by himself.
* MeaningfulName: Magnus is Latin for "great" or "powerful", which characterizes his role as the strongest human warrior quite nicely.
* {{Naytheist}}: While working with Pit in Chapter 2, he tells Pit to let Palutena know that she's slacking off and his world is on the brink of collapse because of it.
* {{Nerf}}: His sword lacks the charged shot that Pit can get (as a club). This means you're forced to fight enemies in close-combat while you're controlling him. The Centurions can be the death of you in the highest difficulties.
* PeoplePuppet: Becomes one briefly in chapter 18 when Pit takes control of him.
* PunchClockHero: He outright states that he does what he does for money. That said, he's still a pretty cool guy.
* RatedMForManly: Deep voice, gruff exterior, muscles, and he's a mercenary to boot.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: The straight man to Pit's wise guy.
* TattooedCrook: Has red tattoos on his right arm.
* TooManyBelts: He has three around his chest, and three on each leg.
* WhamLine: Yesterday?! Try ''THREE YEARS'', buddy!
* WorldsStrongestMan: Strongest human warrior in the world.

[[folder:Zeus]]
[[quoteright:179:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ZeusPict_1349.png]]

-->''"Your training is complete."''

A friendly god who aids Pit either by testing him in exchange for gifts, raising his strength, or raising his health bar.

%%* AllPowerfulBystander
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: While the tile enemies used in his training tests reappear in ''Uprising,'' Zeus doesn't even get a passing mention.
* CatchPhrase: YOU WEAKLING!
* CoolOldGuy: ''Wow, Awesome Job, Pit!''
%%* EccentricMentor
%%* HolyHalo
* NoNameGiven: In the first game and only went under ''friendly god''. Named Zeus in ''Of Myths and Monsters''.
* SinkOrSwimMentor: He'll give you weapon upgrades, only if you pass his training tests.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: In the first game his hair changes colour as Pit's does.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Nurse]]
[[quoteright:165:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nursefromkidicarus_6826.jpg]]

The Nurse from the Hospital who removes the Eggplant Curse.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Since the Eggplant Wizard's curse is reduced to a temporary status effect in ''Uprising,'' there isn't much need for her. Pit and Palutena discuss this, but they never bring up the nurse herself.
%%* FlatCharacter
* TheMedic: In the fortresses.
* WhiteMagic: The only explanation as to how she can get rid of the eggplant curse.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Don]]
[[quoteright:142:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/don111111_6417.jpg]]

-->''"Look for a hidden door above this stage's entrance."''

Gives out information information and teaches Pit new things in the Information Center.

%%* AerithAndBob
%%* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome
* FlatCharacter: Only serves to give out tips to the player.
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: He looks more like a modern day hunter.

[[folder:Poseidon, God of the Sea]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/RyuzaburoOtomo (JP), Creator/FredTatasciore (EN)
[[quoteright:261:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_2poseidonart_4527.png]]

The God of the Sea. Normally neutral, Poseidon prefers to keep to himself and rule the seas while silently observing events on the surface. Annoyed by the antics of the Underworld Army, he aids Pit and Palutena by opening the sea to the Seafloor Palace.

* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Has bluish skin.
* BadassBaritone: Again, courtesy of Creator/FredTatasciore.
* BadassBeard: And it's quite long.
* BadassMustache: Big and busy.
* {{BFG}}: Does not use one, but a weapon called the Poseidon Cannon is modeled after him.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: His reasoning for sinking a city to stop the humans from becoming a problem.
-->'''Poseidon:''' Humans consist of equal parts hubris, envy, and deceit. Sometimes one has to put them in their place.
* MakingASplash: He's the God of the Sea, people.
* OneShotCharacter: Completely disappears from the plot after Chapter 7.
* OnlySaneMan: Unlike most of the other gods, he has more justifiable reasons for what he does (i.e. sinking a city when those in it were becoming a problem, without going off the handle like Viridi). Granted, however, it's difficult to judge how well he fits this trope due to his rather brief appearance in-story.
* ProngsOfPoseidon: [[CaptainObvious Fittingly enough.]]
* WalkingShirtlessScene: He only wears a white robe.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Sank a city when its inhabitants were becoming a problem. At least he's more calmer about it than Viridi.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pyrrhon, the Sun God]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/TetsuInada (JP), Creator/TroyBaker (EN)
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_pyrrhon_final_6492.png]]

-->''"Pyrrhon senses danger... and now, Pyrrhon sees it!"''

The self-proclaimed Sun God. He is mostly seen as an oddball among gods. Seems to think he's a superhero.

* AffablyEvil: He's quite friendly, even after his true nature is revealed.
* AGodAmI: Technically, he's already one, but he plans to take control of the Aurum and become, in his own words, a "Level Infinity Epic Supergod-Plus!"
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Has red skin.
* AmbitionIsEvil: His desire to take control of the Aurum and be the strongest God resulted in him getting controlled instead, once the Aurum Brain resumed control.
* BarbieDollAnatomy: He's technically nude, but any naughty bits are nonexistent.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: He presents himself as an eccentric, brash, but well-meaning character at first glance, then reveals himself to be far more dangerous than he looks.
* TheChessmaster: He was using everyone's help to get to the Aurum Brain and gain control of the Aurum himself. His plan ends up backfiring about four minutes after his hijack, however.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: [[ObfuscatingStupidity Or at least he acts like one]].
* CreepyMonotone: As Aurum Pyrrhon. He even says "Ow" and "Shazamitylam" in monotone while fighting him.
* ConvectionSchmonvection: He's for all intents and purposes ''Kid Icarus's'' Human Torch, yet he's able to carry Pit without fear of burning him.
* DubNameChange: From "[[Myth/EgyptianMythology Raz]]" in the Japanese version.
* EvilAllAlong: His plan was to merge with the Aurum Brain to become the head of the Aurum HiveMind and become more powerful than the other gods. This backfires once the Aurum Brain takes him over. Though it seems that Pit defeating him brought him back to his senses, as Palutena mentions that he's pushing the Aurum away, though that may just be the massive fiery exhaust from him exploding pushing them away.
* EvilIsHammy: Played with. While he is ''undeniably'' hammy, once he reveals his true colors, he becomes progressively less so. This is due to the Aurum's personality override.
--> '''Aurum Pyrrhon: SHAZAMITYLAM.'''
* EvilIsNotAToy: Taking over the Aurum Brain backfires, as it outwills him eventually.
* FakeUltimateHero: It's eventually revealed he was merely using everyone to take control of the Aurum.
* {{Expy}}: Not of Helios the sun god but of Helios' son Phaethon. Phaethon wasn't acknowledged by the other Gods despite being one of them and took drastic action and demanded to drive his father's chariot to prove them wrong. Not only did it backfire on him, but it cost Phaethon his life.
* FlamingHair: His hair, like most of his body, is completely WreathedInFlames.
* FlyingFirepower: Can fly in the air and toss fire blasts at enemies.
* ForGreatJustice: He has a delivery, and its return address is '''JUSTICE'''!!! Subverted in the end, when it's revealed he plans to take control of the Aurum.
* FullFrontalAssault: He's completely nude.
* GemTissue: Pyrrhon has a green jewel on his forehead.
* GreenEyes: Has green eyes to match the green jewel on his forehead.
* HandBlast: Pyhrron uses this to attack the Aurum. '''Kablooey! Kablammy!''' The Burning Palm weapon, in addition, seems to be patterned after him.
* HeroicBuild: Bordering on WalkingShirtlessScene.
* IdiotHero: He's very heroic, but also very stupid.
* {{Kamehamehadoken}}: His Pyro Cannon attack, which he uses in Ch. 17.
* LargeHam: One of the biggest ones in the game. Given that ''Uprising'' takes place in a WorldOfHam, this is really saying something.
* {{Leitmotif}}: He has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2BRLPgd9rY&feature=my_liked_videos&list=LL5A68Xz9vd9pNuUOTW6GeBw a theme]] that plays when he's the focus of the scenes in chapters 15 and 17. The theme that plays during chapter 17 can count as a DarkReprise since it plays when he hijacks the Aurum.
* LightIsNotGood: He's the Sun God and is seemingly on everyone's side, but it's soon revealed he was using them to take control of the Aurum.
* LordErrorProne: He means well, but he can be reckless at times. Such as unintentionally making the Aurum Generator stronger with his firepower.
* MilesGloriosus: Minus the cowardice, at least. He's brash and brave to a fault.
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Palutena does this to him. His idol refers to him as the ''self-proclaimed'' sun god, so this may be because he's not actually a god.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: He ends up making the Aurum Generator stronger [[FeedItWithFire when he attacks it with fire.]]
* NoIndoorVoice: Shouts practically every line.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Seems like an oddball right? Not exactly...
* ObfuscatingStupidity: He's not nearly as dumb as people think he is. The rest of the cast figures this out all-too late.
* PlayingWithFire: He's the Sun God after all.
* ThePowerOfTheSun: Again, he's the Sun God.
* ShapingYourAttacks: Pyrrhon can mold his fire attacks into other shapes, his SignatureMove being the "Pyro Snake".
* SuperEmpowering: After merging with the Aurum Brain, he's capable of enhancing the Aurum troops with his fire powers.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Pyrrhon always refers to Pyrrhon by Pyrrhon's own name!
* TronLines: Has yellow markings all over his body.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Is never seen or mentioned again after the Aurum arc.
* WhatTheHellHero: He makes the fight against the Aurum Generator harder than it should be by attacking it with fire, and he just sheepishly mutters something close to "oops" and leaves Pit to fend for himself.
-->'''Pit''': Ugh, what an idiot!
* WikiWalk: This is heavily implied just by the mere mention of "Divinipedia". Of course, there's nothing really fishy with his knowledge about the Aurum, given he's the only one of all the gods who seems to know all there is know about them.
* WorthyOpponent: Viridi mentions that the only person he considers an equal is Pit.
* WreathedInFlames: He is constantly surrounded in a flaming aura.
* ZeroesAndOnes: Once controlled by the Aurum, proceeds to rattle off "KILL" in binary before fighting Pit.

[[folder:The Chariot Master]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/HochuOtsuka (JP), Alan Oppenheimer (EN)
A mysterious figure who is the owner of the Lightning Chariot.
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Character_chariotm_6868.png]]
* AlasPoorVillain: While villain is a stretch, his death is treated as this. Both Pit and Viridi felt it was completely pointless and both regret it had to come to that.
* AntiVillain: He really does nothing villainous, but Pit still has to defeat him to get the Lightning Chariot.
* DeathSeeker: Hinted at during his level and BossFight, and confirmed shortly afterwards.
* TheDisembodied: Stated by both him and his Idol description. His body has long been destroyed, and the only thing keeping him going is the fact that he follows the soldier's path in death.
* DubNameChange: From "The Main Tank" in the Japanese version.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: If he has a name beyond the Chariot Master, it's never been revealed.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: He dies peacefully and without regret after Pit defeats him.
* GracefulLoser: Takes his defeat and imminent demise quite well, possibly because [[DeathSeeker he wanted it this way.]]
* HighSpeedBattle: His BossFight consists of Pit and the Chariot Master chasing each other on separate chariots.
* HurtingHero: Heavily implied to be this.
* IHaveManyNames; Said almost verbatim during his introduction.
-->'''Chariot Master:''' I've had many names in my life, but now I am called the Chariot Master.
* NotSoAboveItAll: One test in his tower proves he's not above adding to [[ShoutOut/KidIcarusUprising the Shout-Outs page]].
-->'''Pit:''' Okay, so we've got rolling obstacles.
-->'''Viridi:''' And don't forget the jump pads!
-->'''Pit:''' This seems awfully familiar...
-->'''Hades:''' I guess the Chariot Master has played ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong''.
* OnlySaneMan: He's basically the only calm and reasonable character onscreen, considering when Pit encounters him.
* PlayingWithFire: Primarily tosses fireballs at Pit.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: His refusal to hand over the Lightning Chariot and forcing Pit to climb the tower to confront him was to test Pit and see if he was worthy to wield it.
* ShockAndAwe: Will occasionally call down lightning strikes.
* TheStoic: The most calm and levelheaded character in the game.

[[folder:Dyntos]]
!!!Voiced by: Koji Yada (JP), Alan Oppenheimer (EN)
[[quoteright:337:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_2dyntos_artwork_6850.png]]

The God of Smithing. He created the Three Sacred Treasures.

* AllPowerfulBystander: Is one of, if not the most powerful character in the series, outright stated to be more powerful than even Hades and Palutena. And yet he is content to merely forge weapons and replicas of assorted locations and enemies.
* BadassGrandpa: The oldest and most powerful character in the game.
* BaldOfAwesome: Justified in that he's old.
* CoolOldGuy: An old man who happens to be the most powerful character in the game and is a pretty fun guy to be with.
* DeadpanSnarker: Has his moments.
* DropTheHammer: His forge, which he uses to create his weapons.
* EccentricMentor: His manner of teaching Pit is odd, but he does want to help.
* {{Expy}}: Of the greek god of smithing Hephaestus who was known for making all the weapons for the Gods and keeping out of their affairs.
* TheJuggernaut: Potentially the biggest user of this trope in the entire game going by Palutena's description of Dyntos. To put it bluntly, he can recreate virtually anything and everything without any flaws for the most part[[note]]Pseudo-Palutena might be an exception[[/note]] and being able to make the copies of what he makes should they be enemies be far superior to their originals makes his actual power that's not seen even more frightening. The Great Sacred Treasure being his personal creation without it being based off of anything else as well as Pseudo-Palutena and the copy of the Immortal Phoenix, are three of his strongest creations and are no pushovers. He even managed to recreate [[OneHitKill Ornes]], Underworld monsters that Pit can only defeat with the Arrows of Light and most definitely with the Great Sacred Treasure which according to Dyntos, far surpasses the Three Sacred Treasures in terms of sheer power. Yeah, Dyntos is by far the most realistically powerful being in Uprising. This isn't even getting to where Dyntos isn't really showing his true potential...seeing how Pit's battle against the recreated Space Kraken takes place in '''OUTER SPACE'''.
* RealityWarper: Dyntos can do virtually '''''anything'''''. For starters, he can, among other things, create replicas of ''everyone'' in the game, from enemies to bosses and characters alike. He can even mess with their AI to make them tougher (Such as making an enemy move faster than it normally does). He can even replicate the locations Pit fights them in. He's also capable of replacing Palutena with a clone while ''putting the real Palutena to sleep'' despite her being miles away in Skyworld. What makes this frightening is that there seems to be virtually no limit to his powers and Palutena herself implies that he has none, period. As Palutena herself notes, he could potentially take over everything if he wanted to.
* StoryBreakerPower: Potentially. The speed at which he can make copies of ANYTHING, not to mention make them all superior, could easily see him as the ultimate conqueror if that's what he wanted to accomplish.
* TopGod: If not necessarily the absolute strongest, he's implied to be more powerful than any other god in the series. In addition, Palutena refers to him as Lord Dyntos, implying a position of high authority. Then again, if he's based on Hephaestus, it would make sense that he's stronger than the majority of the Gods given he makes the majority of weapons for said Gods and Goddesses and would know their strengths and weaknesses as a result.
* UltimateBlacksmith: Created the weapons in the game, including the Three Sacred Treasures and the Great Sacred Treasure; he's also made perfect copies of every enemy in the game, as well as a few of the bosses Pit has faced thus far. He's also said to be the one reverse engineering several enemy types (most prominently, the Aurum) into weapons for Pit.

[[folder:The Little Girl]]

A small child who lives in one of the human towns.

* EarlyBirdCameo: She appears in a flashback during Hades' made-up story in Chapter 11 before appearing in person.
* GrandTheftMe: A rare case where it's done by the hero of the story.
* ParentalAbandonment: They were allegedly run over by Hades by accident, although it's unclear if that actually did happen.
* SongsOfSolace: Her theme.
* StealthHiBye: After the ring is dropped, and the dog takes it, the girl literally disappears as soon as you turn around. Lampshaded by Pit.
* TheVoiceless: Doesn't say a word.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Dog]]

Another inhabitant of the town attacked in chapter 18. Loves to eat garbage in the town.

* ExtremeOmnivore: It eats garbage. Gets taken to the point that when you move too close to the garbage pail, the dog will automatically move towards it, even if you try to pull away.
* GrandTheftMe: Along with the little girl by Pit in chapter 18.
* IHaveManyNames: The dog's Idol description states that every human it runs into assigns it another name.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Great Sacred Treasure]]

A mech made by Dyntos to help Pit defeat Hades.

* AdaptiveAbility: It can change its form to adapt to damage.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Pit has to beat it in a boss battle before Dyntos lets him use it.
* ElementalPowers: Can [[BlowYouAway create tornadoes]], [[PlayingWithFire shoot fireballs]], and [[ShockAndAwe fire orbs of electricity.]]
* EleventhHourSuperpower: You only really use it for the FinalBoss.
* FinalBoss: Of the BossRush. Hades is skipped as the final battle takes up the entirety of the final chapter.
* GatlingGood: Its Pursuit Mode is equipped with a gatling turret.
* HumongousMecha: A flying one, at that.

* {{Orichalcum}}: What it's composed of, according to Dyntos.
* SecretAIMoves: Inverted. In its boss fight, it can pull off a multitude of attacks like shooting fireballs, creating tornadoes, firing orbs of electricity and the like. When playing as it, it only uses the light arrows and a fireball as its charged shot.
* TransformingMecha: According to its idol description, it can change its form to adapt to damage. It has a "pursuit" mode, "mech armor" mode, and an "ultralight" mode.
* WalkingSpoiler: As it only shows up for the final battle with Hades.

!Underworld Army

[[folder:Medusa, Goddess of Darkness/Queen of the Underworld]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/NaomiShindo (JP), Creator/CreeSummer (EN)
!!!Debut: ''VideoGame/KidIcarus''
[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_1medusapict_4125.png]]

-->''"So hurry to me, Pit. I'll strip you of your wings and sever you from the heavens forever!"''

Known for her serpentine hair and chilling gaze, Medusa's goal is nothing less than total domination.

* AchillesHeel: In the first game, the Three Sacred Treasures are the only things that can destroy her. Downplayed in ''Uprising'', where Hades' reviving her weakened her to where Pit no longer needs the Treasures.
* AdaptationalBadass: While Medusa was hardly a pushover in Myth/ClassicalMythology, she was hardly the cosmic-level threat she is here.
* AnimalMotifs: The snake, obviously. In ''Medusa's Revenge'', she is shown to have serpentine pupils.
* {{Animorphism}}: ''Medusa's Revenge'' has her turn into a snake before returning to her normal form to fight Pit.
* AntagonistTitle: ''Medusa's Revenge''.
* ArchEnemy: To Palutena and Pit.
* ArcVillain: She appears to be the BigBad at first in ''Uprising'', but it turns out she's only the villain for the first one-third of the whole game (Chapters 1-9, to be exact).
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: In Uprising and in the anime short, ''Medusa's Revenge''.
* BackFromTheDead: In Uprising. And then again at the end of the final level.
* BigBad: In the first game she's the main villain but not in ''Uprising'', where she's just an ArcVillain.
* BodyHorror: Her boss fight reveals she has a mouth on her hand which breathes poison gas. Later on, after going OneWingedAngel, she '''''decapitates herself''''' and sends her head flying after Pit.
* BreathWeapon: The snakes in her hair can fire dark energy blasts from their mouths.
* BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu: She punches Hades in the head so hard it DECAPITATES him, but doing that breaks off the arm she did it with.
* CainAndAbel: The Cain to Palutena's Abel.
* CardCarryingVillain: She's the Goddess of Darkness and makes no bones about it.
* CastingAShadow: As befits the Goddess of Darkness.
* ClassicVillain: Representing Ambition and Wrath.
* {{Cyclops}}: Her form at the end of ''Kid Icarus''. She once again [[OneWingedAngel takes this form in ''Kid Icarus Uprising'' after receiving enough damage.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Not as much as other characters in the game, but she has her moments.
* DeathSeeker: Sort of; in Chapter 25, she attacks Hades so he'll stop resurrecting her over and over. It dosen't work too well.
* DetachmentCombat: During the final phase of the fight in ''Uprising'', she will take her head off and send it flying after Pit.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: In ''Uprising''. Thought the game was over? You're not even halfway done.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Pale white skin with black hair.
* EvilAlbino: Has pale white skin.
* EvilCounterpart: To Palutena.
* EvilIsBigger: Most of the gods are human-sized, with Palutena only being a little bit taller than Pit, and Viridi being shorter than him. Medusa, however, is absolutely massive. Judging by Pit's reaction though, she wasn't always like this, and it may be a result of her dark magic.
* ExcessiveEvilEyeshadow: Wears a lot of it.
* EyeBeams: Her main method of attack during her fight.
* FallenHero: She once ruled Skyworld alongside Palutena, but her heart turned evil and she began attacking humanity, forcing Palutena to exile her.
* FauxAffablyEvil: She's quite reserved and soft-spoken, but is far from kind.
* FemmeFatalons: Her fingers are claws and she has no problem using them as weapons.
* FinalBoss: Of the first game.
* FoeRomanceSubtext: Quite a bit between her and Pit in Chapter 9.
-->'''Medusa:''' I can sense you getting closer, Pit.
-->'''Pit:''' There's nowhere left for you to run!
-->'''Medusa:''' Y'know, I'm very much looking forward to your arrival. I feel like Rapunzel waiting for her prince.
-->'''Pit:''' Sorry to break it to you, but those aren't exactly golden locks on your head.
-->'''Medusa:''' And you're not exactly a brave hero. Yet somehow the thought of our confrontation fills me with anticipation. So hurry to me, Pit. I'll strip you of your wings and sever you from the heavens forever.
-->'''Pit:''' I don't think so!
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: Played with. Medusa has a defined personality, but is mostly characterized by her lifelong grudge against Pit and Palutena and has no real goals beyond taking revenge on them.
* GlamourFailure: Her AR idol description states that she uses magic to hide her true appearance, but is forced to use all her power into fighting Pit, causing the disguise to fail.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: In the anime short ''Medusa's Revenge'', and ''man'' is it creepy.
* GodOfEvil: Well, one of them, anyway.
* GorgeousGorgon: Was beautiful before Palutena transformed her into a monster in the first game. Became sexy once more in ''Uprising''. [[GlamourFailure Until she was forced to put all her power into fighting Pit, leaving none to maintain her appearance.]]
* HotGoddess: Until she goes OneWingedAngel.
* HumansAreBastards: Medusa developed a hatred for humanity and started drying up their crops and petrifying them, believing them to be ungrateful beings that only turn to the gods when they need them. This is why Palutena turned her into a hideous mosnter and banished her to the Underworld.
-->'''Medusa:''' Humans turn to the gods in times of need, then forget them in times of prosperity. They really are a fickle bunch.
* KnightOfCerebus: Though downplayed, she's the only villain aside from the Chaos Kin to have no comedic elements (Hades is only played serious onscreen). The fact that she's one of the few characters in the game who doesn't break the fourth wall also helps.
* LargeAndInCharge: She's {{Kaiju}}-sized, and by far the largest thing fought except Hades, who is as big as she is.
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: Most of the snakes in her hair are green, with the exception of one, which is orange. When she goes OneWingedAngel, ''all'' of the snakes in her hair turn orange.
* LastSecondChance: Palutena gives Medusa one last chance to surrender by promising to spare her if she agrees to withdraw her forces and remain in her castle. Works as well as you'd expect.
* LongRangeFighter: In terms of fighting style, she prefers to keep her distance and bombard opponents with dark energy blasts, only using melee attacks when the opponent is close enough.
* LoopholeAbuse: In the second phase of the fight, Palutena uses a spell to chain Medusa's legs to the ground to prevent her from teleporting. Medusa circumvents this by decapitating herself and sending her head flying at Pit.
* {{Medusa}}: Well, [[CaptainObvious yeah]].
* MoralMyopia: Resents Palutena for turning her into a monster and exiling her to the Underworld while conveniently ignoring the fact that the reason she did that in the first place was because she was attacking humanity.
* NotSoDifferent: Tries to pull this one on Palutena before Pit shuts her up. However, given Palutena's silence... [[GoodisNotNice she might be right.]]
* ObviouslyEvil: Just look at her.
* OneWingedAngel: In ''Uprising'', she transforms into a more traditional Gorgon who has a head that will chase after you.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: She basically stays in her castle while her commanders do all the work.
* PimpedOutDress: Her dress is rather sexy.
* PoisonousPerson: Has a mouth on her right hand that expels poison gas.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Tries to pull one on Palutena, but [[ShutUpHannibal Pit interrupts her.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: When she goes OneWingedAngel.
* {{Revenge}}: Her primary motivation.
* ASinisterClue: She holds her StaffOfAuthority in her left hand, unlike Palutena who holds it in her right.
* SlasherSmile: In ''Medusa's Revenge''.
* SnakesAreSexy: Until she goes OneWingedAngel anyway...
* SoftSpokenSadist: Maintains a deep, feminine voice even as she muses on how a bloodbath would be the perfect way to celebrate her resurrection.
* StaffOfAuthority: In ''Uprising''.
* TheStoic: Is remarkably calm, barely raising her voice even in dire situations, and never suffers a VillainousBreakdown.
* StationaryBoss: Phase two of her three-phase battle in ''Uprising''; Palutena uses a spell to chain her feet to the floor so she'll stop using TeleportSpam. Medusa gets around this later by going OneWingedAngel and throwing her flying head at you.
* TakenForGranite: You wouldn't be Medusa if you didn't do this. Strangely, the only time she uses this ability is during the anime short and unlike the Medusa in classic Greek mythology, she doesn't use her gaze, but rather uses dark energy shot from her fingers.
* TeleportSpam: For such a huge body, she seems to easily teleport all around during her boss fight in Uprising, at least until Palutena manages to chain her to the ground.
* UnwittingPawn: Hades revived her only as a distraction.
* VillainousRescue: In the final portion of the final chapter, Medusa comes out of nowhere and blocks Hades' attack on Pit. She claims that it was because she didn't want to be his puppet anymore, but it was still a huge shocker.
* WorfHadTheFlu: Palutena notes that Medusa seems weaker than she was previously. And this is indeed true as Pit is able to beat her without the use of the Three Sacred Treasures when in the first game, he could only defeat her with the Treasures equipped.

[[folder:Hades, Lord of the Underworld]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/HochuOtsuka (JP), Scott Bullock (EN)
[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_501px-hades_final_7377.png]]

-->''"Welcome to '''my''' underworld, Pitty Pat. You too, Pretty Palutena."''

The true Lord of the Underworld. Other creatures, such as Medusa, are merely his pawns.

'''Many spoilers lie ahead. You have been warned.'''
* AdaptationalBadass: Hades in Greek mythology was powerful, but nowhere at the level of this version, who poses a threat to the entire universe.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Hades in Greek mythology was not a nice guy, but his worst crime was tricking Demeter's daughter into staying in the Underworld. This Hades, by comparison, seeks to kill humanity and harvest their souls for his realm.
* AlienBlood: In Chapter 23, when Dark Pit [[ChestBurster bursts out of his chest with the Lightning Chariot]], Hades is shown to have purple and green blood.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: His skin is entirely purple, with a hint of red here and there.
* AppleOfDiscord: Manages to make something ''that doesn't exist'' one, as he spreads the rumor about the Wish Seed to get the humans to kill each other.
* AttackItsWeakPoint: In the second phase of the fight, Pit must destroy the turrets on his body and cape as he works his way up, then fire at the swirling void on his cape. In the third phase, Pit must fire at the glowing wound on his chest left by the Lightning Chariot. In the fourth phase, Pit must fire at the jeweled core created when he regenerates his legs.
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: When Pit finally confronts Hades, his size compared to Pit is gigantic. Pit appears to be the size of one of Hades's fingernails at most.
* AtopAMountainOfCorpses: He wanted to get one started so he could fuel up on souls during the final battle, much to everyone's digust.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Is the TopGod of the Underworld and by far and away the most powerful. Though he prefers to rule from the shadows, he has no problem getting his hands dirty if he has to.
* BaconAddiction: He compares souls to bacon in chapter 23: they taste good with everything.
* BadassArmfold: When he's not doing a SlouchOfVillainy, his arms are crossed as a show of his authority.
* BadassBaritone: Courtesy of Scott Bullock.
* BadassCape: It can even shoot lasers!
* BadassInCharge: Of the Underworld.
* BadBoss: In contrast to Palutena and Viridi, Hades does not care about his troops in the slightest. He even lets them fight without a commander, claiming they are too stupid to have actual brains, and later kills Medusa for interfering in the final battle.
* BerserkButton: Judging from his [[UnstoppableRage reactions]] to Dark Pit vowing to stop him in chapter 22 and Medusa's betrayal in the final battle, he ''really'' hates having his rule questioned.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: While definitely comedic, he's far from harmless, shown especially during Chapter 23 where he destroys the Three Sacred Treausres and actually beats Pit in their first fight. And though Pit puts up a better fight with the Great Sacred Treasure, Hades still manages to claim the upper hand and destroy it. Had Medusa not pulled a {{Villainous Rescue}}, Hades would have killed Pit.
* BlatantLies: He claims he wanted to use the (fake) Wish Seed to revive a girl's parents who he killed in a chariot accident, give them cash, and make them royalty... [[BadLiar Nobody believes it for a second.]]
* BlowYouAway: Transforms into a large tornado during the final battle.
* BodyHorror: Happens throughout his final battle with Pit. First, he gets bifurcated by the Great Sacred Treasure. Then, when charging his most powerful attack, his forehead opens to reveal a large, grotesque ThirdEye and gets his head blown off when Medusa punches him.
* BreathWeapon: Used to destroy the Three Sacred Treasures. Lampshaded by Pit when he says Hades has raunchy breath.
* BrilliantButLazy: He's a capable strategist and an equally capable fighter, but is ''extremely'' lazy and prefers to let others do his dirty work.
* BulletHell: What his FinalBoss fight is in a nutshell. Quite literally considering the first half of the fight takes place in the Underworld.
* TheCaligula: He's the ruler of the Underworld who sees causing destruction as a good time. Not the picture of mental health one would expect in a ruler.
* CannibalismSuperpower: Can devour souls to increase his strength or for healing purposes. Though doing so disrupts the celestial balance of the world.
* CardCarryingVillain: Depending on how he wants to annoy people that day, he'll openly brag about how destructive he is for the sake of getting a rise out of people. In Chapter 15, he mockingly refers to Pit and Palutena as "do-gooders."
* CasanovaWannabe: Whenever he flirts with goddesses [[FoeYay (or Pit)]], they usually feel disgusted.
* CastingAShadow: Primarily attacks with blasts of dark energy.
* TheChessmaster: Manipulates the Wish Seed plot to turn the humans against each other so he can harvest their souls.
* ClassicVillain: Representing greed, sloth, pride, and wrath.
* ControlFreak: Has shades of it. As the ruler of the Underworld, Hades expects things to ''always'' go his way. When something happens that threatens to take away that control like, say, subordinates questioning or rebelling against him, it's one of the few moments when Hades will react with genuine rage and extreme violence.
* CurbStompBattle: His first fight with Pit has him destroying the Three Sacred Treasures and mopping the floor with Pit.
* DarkIsEvil: Has more in common with traditional depictions of Satan then the Greek Hades.
* DeadpanSnarker: No matter what the situation, Hades always has a wisecrack ready.
* DiabolicalMastermind: Orchestrated the entire plot of the game.
* DivingKick: At the end of the first phase of the final battle, he performs one in a last-ditch attempt to destroy the Great Sacred Treasure, but Pit teleports away in time.
* EldritchLocation: His stomach is revealed to be an alternate dimension according to its idol description.
* EnemyMine: He teams up with Palutena and Viridi to take down the Aurum. Of course, this is only because he wants to plunder Earth for himself.
* EnergyBall: Has several variations. Some that fire trick shots if fired on, others that fire if Pit does nothing.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He claims that the Chaos Kin "is too much of a handful even for him."
* EverybodyHatesHades: And he gives them plenty of reason to.
* EvilBrit: Speaks with a British accent.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: He claims that he sees no difference between reincarnation and devouring souls despite the fact that the latter action disrupts the balance. Though knowing him, he probably said that to mess with Pit.
* EvilIsBigger: Like Medusa, he's kaiju-sized while most of the other gods are roughly human-sized.
* EvilIsHammy: He's essentially an evil Tim Curry with godly powers.
* EvilIsPetty: Despite Hades having much higher goals and ambitions, he just cannot resist opportunities to rub salt in his enemies's wounds, or just mess with them for a good laugh at their expense. Despite working with the heroes to stop the Aurum, Hades still summons Mimicuties to impede his progress just to screw with him. And later, in Ch. 19, Hades sends Underworld troops to retrieve the Lightning Chariot just to get in Pit's way.
-->'''Palutena''': You'd think the lord of the Underworld would be too busy for mischief making.\\
'''Hades''': Oh, ''no.'' Making mischief is one of my principal responsibilities.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Thanks to Scott Bullock.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Good God, to say nothing of him devouring Pit. When the angel questions how he could punch through his stomach, Hades' response is to devour an assortment of Underworld enemies for him to deal with.
* EyeBeams: Has several. The most powerful of them is one fired from the third eye on his forehead.
* FacialMarkings: He has red streaks going across his face, which gives off the vibe of a mask.
* FangsAreEvil: Has small fangs in his normal form. Subverted when he grows a new head, which lacks fangs.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Hades carries an air of good showmanship most of the time, presenting himself as an affable, though eccentric gentlemen, though he's prone to making backhanded compliments and snide remarks most of the time. He even teams up with the heroes to defeat the Aurum, [[PragmaticVillainy though for his own reasons]]. Underneath it all, however, Hades is a total psychopath and when he [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness lets the mask slip]], he's outright terrifying. Despite that however, he does have enough respect to [[GracefulLoser congratulate Pit after he defeats him for good.]] This is even lampshaded by his trophy descriptions in ''Smash 4''.
-->'''NA''': The true ruler of the Underworld, he is so powerful that he easily resurrected Medusa for his own amusement—and to distract his foes. Full of arrogance, he does have a genuine sense of humor, though it mainly serves to conceal his callous disregard for life.
-->'''PAL''': The true ruler of the Underworld Army. He resurrected Medusa, then sat back to watch the chaos unfold. His power and skill surpass those of all other gods, yet he seems very nonchalant. Once you get past his jokey exterior, though, it's clear how cruel and twisted he really is.
* FinalBoss: As often as other issues get in the way, he and Pit finally get to duke it out in the final chapter of the game.
* FlamingHair: His green-and-red hair flows in such a manner that it evokes imagery of fire, fittingly enough. And in his final form during the final battle, his entire head becomes coated in an otherworldly neon-blue fire.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: There are several hints in the beginning chapters that Hades is the true BigBad of the game.
** In Ch 6, Both Pit and Palutena note that despite the Mirror of Truth being destroyed, the Underworld Army is still getting new monsters. Later it's revealed that Hades uses the souls of fallen humans to create his monsters.
** In Ch 7, When Palutena asks Thanatos why he doesn't outrank Medusa as he's the God of Death, Thanatos makes weird Indian noises to dodge the question, implying that he knows Medusa is Hades's pawn, but didn't want to reveal it.
** In Ch 9, Medusa herself admits that she had no idea how she came back to life and that her memories are fuzzy at best. Palutena also notes that Medusa is weaker than she normally is. Then Hades reveals himself at the end of the chapter.
* ForTheEvulz: He himself admits that committing acts of evil is his idea of a good time.
* FrickinLaserBeams: During the final phase of the fight.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: He literally shows up out of nowhere, the only foreshadowing to someone being behind Medusa being that she herself didn't know how she came back from the dead, only revealed when you fight her. He then pops up during the credits and tears off the credit screen before revealing he brought her back. Unlike most other examples, he kinda works since he's less than half way through the game.
* GoodColorsEvilColors: Purple, red, black, and green? This guy ''screams'' evil.
* GracefulLoser: Takes his defeat well even without considering his secret message.
* GreaterScopeVillain: Revealed to be the one orchestrated the first game's events, and brought Medusa back to life.
* GodOfEvil: The God of the Underworld and the most malevolent villain in the game.
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: During the final battle. It doesn't last very long.
* HealingFactor: He manages to regenerate the entire lower half of his body after Pit slices him in half with the Great Sacred Treasure, as well as his head after Medusa punches it off.
* HopelessBossFight: His first fight with Pit, which you could go intto with or without the Sacred Treasures.
* {{Hypocrite}}: He claims that humans are predictable due to their greed, yet it is his greed that causes all the suffering that happens in the game.
* IAmNotLeftHanded: His entire first fight with Pit (especially shown if you go in with the Three Sacred Treasures) has him taking [[NoSell zero damage]] from said weapons and he then damages said ancient weapons to where they become unusable for the rest of the chapter (and for the remaining chapters past that point) forcing Pit to use the weapon he originally had equipped. The only major blow that Pit deals most likely agitated Hades instead of actually hurting him. Taken further in his final fight against Pit who is now using the Great Sacred Treasure, Hades true potential wasn't even achieved since he wasn't able to 'destroy the human settlements and consume their souls' to make himself stronger, literally meaning that Pit wasn't facing Hades at his [[OhCrap actual peak performance]].
* InsaneTrollLogic: As is fitting his trolling personality. He manages to take Pit's understandable horror at the idea of being defecated out of the WombLevel and somehow warp it into meaning that Pit ''hates life''.
* InvincibleVillain: An odd example of this trope as his invinciblity is mostly due to tactics. Thanks to his XanatosGambit in Ch 10, most of the game is things going his way. Even with the appearance of other [[ArcVillain Arc Villains]], no matter what happens, Hades would get more souls for his realm. And though he's one of the most powerful characters in the game, very little of the game is spent fighting him.
* ItsAllAboutMe: It's all about getting things his way no matter who has to suffer in the process. Best shown by this statement during his introduction:
--> '''Hades''': But she's old news, and old news bores me. We must look to the future and that future is ''me!'' The ''true'' leader of the Underworld! Next to me, little miss Medusa's going to look like a sweet, cuddly bunny!
* {{Jerkass}}: Let's just get it out there: Even at his "[[FauxAffablyEvil nicest]]", he's still a total asshole.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Teams up with the heroes to stop the Aurum solely because he wants to be the only one to plunder the Earth.
* TheJuggernaut: Blowing up his heart? Cutting him in half? Decapitating him? He [[NoSell no sells]] it all and trucks on. Only the complete destruction of his entire physical being will put him down. And even then, as TheStinger shows, it probably inconvenienced him at worst.
* KickTheDog: He keeps trying to get Pit killed even when he's siding with him during the Aurum invasion.
* KillAllHumans: He uses their souls to produce more monsters and to do whatever else he wants with them.
* KnightOfCerebus: Only when he or his projection is on-screen. When he's off-screen making much of the banter between Pit and the other gods, he is mostly comedic, but when he's on-screen, the atmosphere gets much more serious. Played straight in the Japanese version, where he's more or less a straightforward villain with no hint of comedy.
* LackOfEmpathy: He starts a war and has no remorse for killing millions of people, sees souls as nothing more than tools to be manipulated or empowering nourishment, and also laughs at Pit for being stuck in the ring. Summed up quite well in this exchange between himself and Viridi in chapter 22:
-->'''Viridi''': Your disregard for life is just ''astounding''. Could you ''be'' any more callous?\\
'''Hades''': Well, I could ''try''.
* LargeAndInCharge: Rivals Medusa as the largest boss in the game.
* LargeHam: Hades has a tendency to be loud and hammy when he's talking.
* LaughablyEvil: He's a madman, but one can't help but find him funny simply because he's a massive troll of a god.
* {{Leitmotif}}: A three-note [[OminousLatinChanting ominous chant]] heard [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tMqUYXe6VI here]]. It gets remixed in the final battle.
* LightningBruiser: As demonstrated in the final battle, he's surprisingly athletic for his size, able to keep up with the Great Sacred Treasure just by sprinting. He can fly at incredible speeds and is strong enough to punch through the ground (getting his arm stuck in the process).
--> '''Viridi''': It's kinda like watching an elephant sprint.
* TheManBehindTheMan: In ''Uprising''. (Not the entire series. As far as we know, anyways.)
* ManipulativeBastard: He spreads a rumor about the Wish Seed to get humans to go to war and kill each other so he can take their souls. He manipulates Pit in order to kill the Phoenix in order to get the humans to kill each other even more.
* MoreDakka: '''Whoa nelly'''. He is ''literally'' a walking BulletHell. He has EyeBeams, [[WaveMotionGun huge lasers]] that he can fire from his forehead and each of his palms, thrown DeflectorShields that [[RecursiveAmmo shoot out their own fireballs]], trick bullets that fly straight into you if you shoot them by mistake, more trick bullets that fly back to hit you if you ''don't'' shoot them down... and to top it all off, his [[PoweredArmor Devastation Ensemble]] allows him to ''grow'' all kinds of turrets out of just about any part of his clothing. FinalBoss indeed.
* TheNicknamer: as "Pitty-Pat" and "Pretty Palutena" can attest to
* NighInvulnerable: Having his heart destroyed just irritates him, getting ''cut in half'' doesn't bother him, getting ''DECAPITATED'' barely slows him down, and even when Pit vaporizes him with the Great Sacred Treasure's Final Strike, TheStinger shows that he's ''still alive'' in some capacity. Put simply, Hades. Just. Won't. ''Die''.
* NotMeThisTime: Pulls this twice, first bringing up that the Aurum aren't his doing, and later states that the Chaos Kin doesn't work for him, and there's nothing seen to contradict his claim.
* NotQuiteDead: His voice starts talking in TheStinger. He himself concedes that he probably can never come back to life, but is still able to talk to the player as a disembodied voice at least.
* NotSoFastBucko: In chapter 9, while Pit and Palutena are celebrating Medusa's defeat, Hades cuts in at that moment, declaring, "Now, wait just a second."
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Despite his [[EvilIsHammy flair for the dramatic]] and [[{{Troll}} trollish personality]], he is a [[TheChessmaster very competent schemer]] and [[TopGod one of the most powerful characters in the game]], second only to [[AllPowerfulBystander Dyntos]]. Literally, the '''''only''''' reason he lost was due to Medusa's intervention.
* ObviouslyEvil: Just look at him.
* OffWithHisHead: Medusa punches his head clean off, not that it slows him down as he's still got another.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Hades is always evil and scary, but there are very few times he drops the levity of his hammy speech and constant jokes in favor of just being 100% dead serious, angry, and violent. First when Dark Pit threatens his dominion over the Underworld (enough so for Hades to smash a pillar in rage), and again during and after Medusa's defiance in the final battle. He also reacted with understandable anger when Dark Pit [[ChestBurster tore out of his insides on the Lightning Chariot]], though even then he goofily chose to express his anger as "That wasn't very NICE!!". He also gets over it rather quickly.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: He is VERY lazy, and the only time he gets up and does anything himself is when Pit comes to fight him.
* OverarchingVillain: He's the overriding BigBad of ''Uprising'', being behind the general conflict of the whole game and the one that Pit and Palutena ultimately aim to stop but Hades himself only acts as a direct threat for Chapters 10 and 22-25, [[DiscOneFinalBoss Medusa]] antagonizing Pit for Chapters 1-9 and a host of {{Arc Villain}}s filling Chapters 11-21.
* PerpetualSmiler: He usually has a cross of a SlasherSmile and a {{troll}}-face-style smile on his face. [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness The minute he stops smiling is the minute things are about to get very bloody.]]
* PersonOfMassDestruction: When wearing his Devastation Ensemble which allows him to spawn weapons from any part of his body. If he were to go all out, there wouldn't be much of a world left to save. His AR Card even describes him as a literal weapon of mass destruction.
* PhysicalGod: Of the Underworld.
* PowerEchoes: Whenever he speaks, it has this effect to his voice.
* PoweredArmor: His "Devastation Ensemble" is an odd example of this, being just a covering of light over parts of his regular outfit, but allowing him to spawn any and all manner of weaponry out of that light. He loses it after Pit bifurcates him with the Great Sacred Treasure.
* PowerFist: Does not use one, but the End-All Arm seems to be patterned after him.
* PowerOfTheVoid: During the third round of the fight, Hades creates vortexes on his hands to draw Pit in and hold him in place to fire more shots at him. The vortexes can be destroyed by Pit's own shots.
* PragmaticVillainy: He sides with Palutena and Viridi during the Aurum arc only because he wants to be the one to destroy humanity.
* {{Pride}}: As hinted toward by his out-of-character moments, it seems that his only BerserkButton is the questioning of his power and control. Combine this with his motivation being the desire to ''play around with souls'', and it indicates quite a power and control lust.
* PunchCatch: Pulls one off against Medusa after her VillainousRescue, which he follows up by ripping her arm clean off and finishing her off with a powerful uppercut.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Hades's skin color is predominantly purple, and he is indeed very powerful (as you should expect from someone with the title 'Lord of the Underworld.')
* RapidFireFisticuffs: In his first fight with Pit.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: And his character portraits show that they glow red when he loses his temper.
* SevenDeadlySins: While greed, sloth, pride, and wrath are his biggest vices, Hades, in a way, represents ''all'' of them. He has a greed and gluttony for souls, has a lust for power and control, is incredibly slothful and prefers to let others do his dirty work, is extremely arrogant and vain, and reacts with extreme wrath when threatened.
* SlasherSmile: His default expression.
* SlouchOfVillainy: His defaut pose when he's not doing a BadassArmfold.
* TheSociopath: Incredibly manipulative with tons of charisma, but has no empathy for anything but himself. To him, everything else is either a controllable pawn or a toy he can play with until it breaks, and he won't let anything that can't be controlled exist.
* SoulPower: He can use souls for a variety of purposes such as regnerating lost limbs or reviving fallen allies. A major plot point is that the Underworld Monsters are created from the souls of fallen humans and multiple souls are needed to create one monster.
* SpikesOfVillainy: When wearing his Deavastation Ensemble, he has three giant spikes protruding from his right shoulder.
* StepfordSmiler: Type C. Wears an ever-present smile, but is a total psychopath.
* TheStinger: If you wait five minutes after the credits, you get treated to Hades's disembodied voice shattering whatever remains of the fourth wall.
* SuperStrength: Able to rip Medusa's arm clean off and kill her in a single uppercut.
* TermsOfEndangerment: Pitty Pat for Pit. Pretty, Professor, or Know-it-all Palutena for Palutena. Pitooey for Dark Pit. Lovely Little Phosphora for Phosphora. Big Bad or Little Miss Medusa for Medusa. He's a fountain of these.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: His attitude towards the earth during the Aurum invasion. The earth his his to destroy and no one else's.
-->'''Hades:''' But whatever they are, they must be stopped. Earth is ''my'' flower to plunder, not ''theirs!''
* ThirdEye: Has one that he opens up to fire his WaveMotionGun.
* ThisIsADrill: He just pops a drill out of his body in his attempt to destroy the Great Sacred Treasure.
* TokenEvilTeammate: During the Aurum arc.
* TopGod: He leads all of the gods of the underworld in ''Uprising'', including Medusa, Thanatos, and Pandora.
* {{Troll}}: Oh my good bloody Lord... He even gives ''Palutena'' a run for her money by having an almost permanent Troll Face!
* VacuumMouth: Used to swallow Pit whole in Chapter 23.
* VileVillainSaccharineShow: While the game is more Crapsaccharine than Saccharine due to the setting and nature of the game, it still is quite lighthearted. Hades on the other hand, is the GodOfEvil who seeks to destroy humanity to harvest their souls for his own greed. LaughablyEvil moments aside, Hades is one of the more darker villains of the game. Gets even worse in the Japanese version where he's mostly a straightforward villain with no element of comedy.
* VillainHasAPoint: His statement to Pit about "what is the difference between reincarnating souls and removing souls from existence?" does make sense in retrospect. Pit is left almost speechless.
* VillainousBreakdown: During his final battle with Pit. It's subtle, but it's there. At the beginning of the battle, he's his usual self. But as the fight wears on and Pit powers through everything he throws at him, his normally calm and smug demeanor starts to erode, which all comes to a head when Medusa attacks him, where he pretty much snaps and drops the [[FauxAffablyEvil polite facade]] altogether. However, by TheStinger, he's mostly back to his old self and even congratulates Pit on his victory.
* WalkingSpoiler: To such an extent that literally every single entry on the page was whited-out before advanced warning was given. In spite of being the villain for 64% of the game, nothing in promotional material prior to the game's release or even prior to his debut in the game itself indicated he even existed!
* WaveMotionGun: His strongest attack during the final battle is a powerful laser he fires from a ThirdEye on his forehead. It causes a NonStandardGameOver if Pit fails to fill the gauge before he fires.
* WolverineClaws: One of his attacks in his first fight with Pit has him swiping his claws at Pit.
* WombLevel: Level 23 is his digestive tract, which [[AllThereInTheManual according to the Idol description is apparently an alternate dimension.]]
* WorthyOpponent: Appears to acknowledge Pit as one if TheStinger is any indication.
* WouldHitAGirl: Medusa learns this the hard way.
* XanatosGambit: If Pit kills the Phoenix, then Hades can start his war. If Pit spares the Phoenix, then the Phoenix will attack humanity. And from then on it doesn't matter who kills humans, whether it be his own forces, Viridi's forces, or even Palutena's forces when she's possessed by the Chaos Kin. Either way, he gets what he wants: souls.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Said almost verbatim to Medusa as he kills her.
* YourSoulIsMine: His [[JustForPun soul]] motivation. The only purpose he has for starting a war and sending the Underworld Army to massacre everyone is to amass a large collection of souls. (That, and according to Hades they taste delicious.)

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_1twinbellows_artwork_6908.jpg]]

A devil dog with two heads. Its body is wrapped in fire and spits out bullets of magma energy.

* AttackAttackAttack: His strategy in the original ''Kid Icarus'' is to fire projectiles and advance (and occasionally jump). With enough Centurions, Pit can theoretically take him out before he reaches the other side of the room.
* BreathWeapon: Can breath fire.
* BullfightBoss: In ''Uprising'', if Pit manages to dodge his ChargeAttack, Twinbellows will hit the wall and be stunned long enough for Pit to attack him.
* ChargeAttack: Twinbellows will attempt to ram Pit. On higher difficultes, it will spam this move repeatedly.
* {{Expy}}: Of Cerberus from classical Greek Mythology as both are Hellhounds with multiple heads who serve as the guardian of the Underworld. Likely also of Orthrus, the two-headed brother of Cerberus.
* {{Fireballs}}: Spits out fireballs.
* FlamingHair: His fur seems to be composed of fire.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: Has green glowing eyes.
* {{Hellhound}}: He's the Guardian of the Underworld.
* MeaningfulName: He has '''Twin''' heads and '''Bellows''' out fire.
* MultipleHeadCase: Has two heads. Hence the name.
* PlayingWithFire: His attacks in both the original and ''Uprising''.

-->Hewdraw (Blue Head): ''"Hello there!"''
-->Hewdraw (Purple Head): ''"It's snack time!"''
-->Hewdraw (Violet Head): ''"Mm! What a tender little morsel!"''

Its body is like a smooth snake. Originally it comprised of one head and came out of water, but now it has two more heads and takes to the sky.

* AffablyEvil: They're a kind bunch of dragons. One in particular (the violet middle head) is very polite to Pit, even when he's trying to eat him. There's also one of the possible death quotes at the end of chapter 3:
-->'''Hewdraw''': Look how far you've come, Pit. I'm proud of you. (dies)\\
'''Pit''': [[LampshadeHanging Huh. You don't usually meet such nice bosses.]]
* BreathWeapon: From fireballs to laser beams.
* TheBrute: Serves as this for the Underworld Army.
* CarryABigStick: Does not use one, but the Hewdraw Club is patterned after him.
* DumbMuscle: Particularly the blue head.
* EvilBrit: The violet head has a distinct British accent.
* {{Expy}}: Of the Hydra from Greek Mythology, being serpentine monsters with multiple heads an incredible regenerative powers. However, their regenerative powers are somewhat inverted. While Hydra can regrow its heads if they are cut off, Hewdraw's heads are capable of acting independently if severed and can regrow new bodies instantly.
* {{Flight}}: Somehow is able to fly despite not having any visible wings.
-->'''Pit''': He can fly?
-->'''Palutena''': [[{{Troll}} I think the only one who can't fly by himself is you.]]
* GiantFlyer: Larger than Pit, but can still keep themselves aloft.
* GracefulLoser: When defeated, the purple Hewdraw head compliments Pit and tells him how proud he is.
* HealingFactor: They can regrow a new torso in mere minutes.
* ICannotSelfTerminate: One of the heads says he wants someone to put him out of his misery when the three are bickering amongst each other.
* LaughablyEvil: Can be a riot due to their bickering. Even when separate, they provide some hilarious lines.
* MultipleEndings: Determined by the order you defeat the heads in ''Uprising''. The blue Hewdraw will scream that he's too pretty to die. The purple Hewdraw will compliment Pit before dying. And the red Hewdraw will attempt to say something, but will explode before he can.
* MultipleHeadCase: Has three heads that have their own distinct personality, causing them to constantly bicker and argue with each other. Their bickering can get so bad that their sentences become impossible to process as they talk over each other.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: A three-headed, talking dragon whose heads can act independently of the main body and each have their own distinct personality.
* SoProudOfYou: The "nice" head says this after Pit beats him.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: Hewdraw Reborn would be a lot harder to fight against if he didn't keep spawning fireballs you can shoot to get him out of the water.
* TailSlap: Hewdraw Reborn can swipe its tail at Pit.
* TalkingAnimal: A talking dragon.
* WhoNeedsTheirWholeBody: Hewdraw's heads are capable of surviving on their own if they are decapitated.
* {{Yandere}}: The purple Hewdraw when under the influence of Palutena's monster pheromones.

[[folder:T(h)anatos, God of Death]]
!!!Voiced by: Eiji Ito (JP), Danny Mann (EN)[[quoteright:274:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_thanatos_artwork_948.png]]

--> ''"The extra H is for Hamazing!"''

The God of Death. He's a bit on the crazy side.

* AffablyEvil: Really, working for the Underworld Army is the only thing that makes him evil. He's actually quite nice and personable, if not eccentric.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Has dark green skin.
* AntagonistTitle: ''Thanatos Rising''.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: As the God of Death, he gets perks like evil powers, health insurance... and free soda.
* AscendedExtra: In the original game, he was just a snake that lived in Medusa's hair. Uprising reveals that he's the god of death, and a shapeshifter.
* BattleAura: In Chapter 14, he takes on Phosphora in the form of a "glow dragon"; unlike his other forms, it's a dragon-shaped aura that he uses to defend and attack rather than a complete transformation. Thanatos's true form is clearly visible in the dragon's head.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Though hammy and comedic, he's far from harmless. Case in point in ''Thanatos Rising'' where he effortlessly defeats a human army and takes control of one of their Trojan Horse Tanks, and almost manages to defeat Pit soon after.
* BigBad: Of the ''Thanatos Rising'' anime short.
* BrilliantButLazy: He is a very effective fighter, and is Medusa's second-in-command, but his lazy and rather carefree nature gets in the way of his job (i.e. sending Reaper subordinates while relaxing in the Sea-floor Palace.)
* BunnyEarsLawyer: He's utterly wacky, yet he's ''somehow'' Medusa's second-in-command. Pit and Palutena even Lampshade it.
-->'''Pit''': How did ''this'' guy get to be Medusa's second-in-command?
-->'''Palutena''': Beats me. Seniority?
* ButtMonkey: To put it simply, even ''Pit'' shows no respect for him.
* {{Camp}}: Possibly the campiest villain in the whole show.
* CloudCuckoolander: Let's just get it out there: Thanatos is ''nuts''.
* ConfusionFu: His shapeshifting powers combined with his wackiness makes him very unpredictable in battle.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: A complete and utter wackjob, but he's far from harmless. In Ch 14, he was able to hold his own against Phosphora and though he lost, was able to weaken her enough for Pit to fight her. And in ''Thanatos Rising'', he shows just how dangerous he can be when he pus his mind to it.
* CuteLittleFangs: Has one on the right side of his mouth, but it's barely noticable.
* DeathIsCheap: As the god of death, he gets special privileges.
* TheDragon: He's Medusa's second in command and Hades' after he reveals himself. He even transforms into a literal dragon while fighting Phosphora.
* EvilVersusEvil: Reappears in Chapter 14 to battle Phosphora only to be defeated. Though how evil Phosphora is is debatable.
* FamousLastWords: Parodied when he dies a second time, at the hands of Phosphora:
--> "Farewell cryyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!"
* FauxAffablyEvil: Portrayed as this in ''Thanatos Rising''. His politeness is a little less sincere and his jokes are more sardonic and a bit sadistic.
* ForTheEvulz: In ''Thanatos Rising'', he tries to destroy a human city for no other reason than pure amusement. Granted, he could have been harvesting souls for the Underworld, but he seemed to take a little too much enjoyment out of it.
* GagLips: Has big, blue lips to go with his overall clown motif.
* HighSpeedBattle: Against Phosphora. He loses, but weakens her enough for Pit to fight her.
* LargeHam: Lampshaded. According to Thanatos, the extra H in his name (previously Tanatos) stands for "Hamazing".
* LargeAndInCharge: Not to the extend of Medusa or Hades, but he stands at an [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/kidicarus/images/f/fa/Kiuheight.png an impressive 330cm]], or 10'10".
* LaughablyEvil: His childish personality makes him quite entertaining.
* MadeOfIron: Notably in that he takes quite a large amount of punishment in his appearances as an enemy whether his opponent is Pit or Phosphora. Against Pit, Thanatos fights the strongest fighter that Palutena has and continues fighting by alternating between different forms despite the continuous damage he sustains without slowing down. He then takes this even further when he fights Phosphora in Chapter 14 where his opponent is ''much'' faster than him and possibly just as powerful despite the the fact that he's a god and she isn't. To make up for a lack of speed to match, he appears to be absurdly durable as his fight against Phosphora lasts for nearly 80% of the entire air battle at the least and he just [[{{Determinator}} doesn't give up]]. Pit even comments that Thanatos is much faster than ever before and as it shows, the God of Death is able to keep pace with his opponent. In the end, the entire fight arguably worked out for Hades (being able to weaken the Forces of Nature by defeating their commander) since Thanatos can be revived by Hades, Phosphora is now at quite a disadvantage being heavily weakened since she has to retreat to recover. To put it forward, Thanatos fought Phosphora in an [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown intense match]] where they both fought with everything they had and he was just about the only counter that Phosphora possibly had at that point and managed to inflict enough damage to make the Forces of Nature weak enough to be defeated. Pit would later fight Phosphora when she was still critically weakened and not even at her best and win due to that factor although Phosphora knew that she wouldn't have the best time.
* MadHatter: Has definite shades of this. He even [[Disney/AliceInWonderland sounds like Disney's version of him.]]
* MonsterClown: His appearance in ''Uprising'' invokes this.
* MorphicResonance: His forms has his green coloring and scarfs from his normal form.
* ObviouslyEvil: What, were you expecting the God of Death to look nice?
* PoisonousPerson: His attacks in his normal form can inflict poison status.
* PowerFloats: He's never seen walking.
* PsychopathicManchild: He's ''very'' childish, easily offended, and overly sensitive, and when things don't go his way, he [[RageQuit throws tantrums.]]
* RageQuit: invokes this trope in ''Thanatos Rising''.
* ScaledUp: During his fight against the Forces of Nature, he took the form of a [[PowerGlows Glow Dragon.]]
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Wears a large scarf.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: He changed his name from Tanatos to Thanatos, because the extra H is, well, you already know by now.
* SimpleStaff: Does not use one, but the Thanatos staff is patterned after him.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: Thanatos would be unstoppable in his urn form if he didn't spit out skulls for Pit to knock back at him.
* TopHeavyGuy: His torso is larger than his legs. That's probably why he floats around.
* VillainBall: In ''Thanatos Rising'', instead of killing Pit when he had him trapped, he decides to toy with him by throwing bombs at him. Pit beats him by shooting at the cogs, bringing the Trojan Horse Tank down on his head.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: His main superpower and the reason why he was able to turn himself into a snake in the first game. During his battle in ''Uprising'', he transforms into: [[GiantFootOfStomping a giant foot]], [[BatOutOfHell a bat that can split into swarms of smaller bats]], [[MatryoshkaObject a matryoshka doll]], [[TalkingWeapon a sword and spears]], and a [[TennisBoss jar]].
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Seems to be wearing overalls.
* WhyDontYaJustShootHim: What ultimately leads to his defeat in ''Thanatos Rising.''
* TheWorfEffect: When Hades revives him to fight against the Forces of Nature, Thanatos is defeated by Phosphora. He does, however, weaken Phosphora significantly.

-->''"Do I look like a strategy guide? In case you haven't noticed...THIS ISN'T THE ASK AUNTIE PANDORA HOUR."''

The Goddess of Deceit. She likes to confuse whoever tries to enter her realm. She is allied with Medusa.

* AndIMustScream: If the dialogue in Ch. 22 is any indication, she was trapped in Dark Pit's wings for three years and ''fully aware the entire time'', though she seems more concerned that Dark Pit took her powers than she was about being trapped in his wings.
* ArchEnemy: Found one in Dark Pit.
* AscendedExtra: Was the [[HardLevelsEasyBosses easiest Boss]] (and boss of the next-to-last level) in the original ''Kid Icarus''. Now plays a far bigger role in ''Uprising''.
* BadassFingerSnap: The way she activates some of her spells as Amazon Pandora.
* BatmanGambit: Lured Pit to her Labrynth of Deceit to use him to create Dark Pit. Too bad her plan blew up in her face when Dark Pit rebels against her.
* BishonenLine: In ''Uprising'', she eventually assumes a humanoid form called Amazon Pandora.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Like Thanatos, she's very eccentric and a very capable fighter.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: In ''Uprising'', her eccentric behavior is what makes her level so [[MindScrew confusing.]]
* CoolSword: As Amazon Pandora, she wields a blue longsword.
* CuteBruiser: As Amazon Pandora, she's definitely easy on the eyes. But she's more than just a pretty face.
%%* DarkActionGirl: Especially as Amazon Pandora.
%%* DeadpanSnarker: ''Constantly''. She's on par with Viridi here.
* TheDisembodied: Amazon Pandora's idol states that she was one of the Underworld's greatest warriors, but had an accident that cost her her body, forcing Pandora to take the form of a pure manifestation of her will.
%%* FangsAreEvil: In spirit form.
* FauxAffablyEvil: She seems jaded and sarcastic at first glance, brushing aside things with a nonchalant attitude. But as her idol says, it's all an act and she revels in trickery and deception.
* TheFightingNarcissist: As Amazon Pandora. One of the first things she does after regaining her original form is to show off her new body. Doesn't stop her from fighting Dark Pit though.
* FloatingMask: Her original design was reminiscent of a sentient mask.
* GreatGazoo: She isn't called the Goddess of Deceit for nothing.
* GodOfEvil: The Goddess of Calamity and Disasters.
* HeartBeatDown: Can fire heart-shaped projectiles and create heart-shaped barriers as Amazon Pandora.
* HotGoddess: Not that one would expect looking at her spirit form, but as Amazon Pandora, she's a really beautiful and sexy young woman.
* ISurrenderSuckers: Pulls this in both her fights.
** In her fight with Pit, after taking damage, she seemingly surrenders and allows Pit to destroy the Mirror of Truth. In reality, it was a BatmanGambit to create Dark Pit. Sadly for her, her plan quickly falls apart when Dark Pit turns on her.
** During her fight with Dark Pit, after taking damage, she falls to the ground. However it's a trick as after a few seconds, she'll get to her feet and fire off heart-shaped energy blasts.
-->'''Pandora:''' You got me... ...Just kidding!
%%* LaughablyEvil:
* MadBomber: Can materialize bombs during her fights.
* MagicKnight: As Amazon Pandora. She fights with a sword and various deceptive magic.
* MasterSwordsman: As Amazon Pandora, she is quite skilled with a sword.
%%* MsFanservice: As Amazon Pandora.
* NightmareFace: In her spirit form, her eyes and mouth are huge and somewhat demonic-looking. Quite a fair cry from her cute and pretty face as Amazon Pandora.
* PlayingWithFire: In her spirit form, she attacks by spitting out fireballs.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: As Amazon Pandora, Her eyes go from purple to red.
* RecurringBoss: You fight with her twice in ''Uprising'' with Pit and one more time as Dark Pit in both forms.
* SanityStrengthening: Discussed by her at the start of Chapter 5's ground section, where she claims she is now trying to have a more balanced mentality. Her idol states that while she sounds jaded, it's just an act.
* ShowingOffTheNewBody: The first thing she says when she transforms into [[HotGod Amazon Pandora? "Eat your hearts out."]]
* StrawNihilist: Implied by this comment:
-->'''Pandora''': What's the point of getting worked up? What's the point of ''anything'', really?
* SwordBeam: As Amazon Pandora, she can fire five of these from her sword.
* TechnicolorFire: She seems to be made of blue fire in her redesign. But it turns into red fire when she's angry.
* TurnsRed: Literally. When angered, her spirit form goes from blue to red.
* TheTrickster: Her idol says that she loves trickery.
* WolverineClaws: Does not use any, but the Pandora claws are patterned after her.

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_1rsz_gaol_updatedart_4505.png]]

-->"Ah, Palutena's little messenger boy. And Magnus, it's always a pleasure!"

A warlord who is aligned with Medusa. In the past, she was a childhood friend of Magnus, and the two fought monsters together as part of the same mercenary group.

* AllThereInTheManual: According to her Idol, she volunteered to spy on the Underworld Army, but was captured and forced to wear the cursed armor of a dark lord, making her into nothing more than a slave to the very evil she had fought against.
** But then it seems she has gained complete control over the cursed armor when you fight her and Magnus, complete with a total removal of the distorted, evil voice. It appears that Pit and Magnus quite literally [[BeatTheCurseOutOfHim beat the curse out of her or that Dyntos just made her a new set.]]
* BarrierWarrior: Uses a barrier that will reflect ranged attacks.
* CastingAShadow: Attacks with various blasts of dark energy.
* CoolSword: The Gaol blade is modeled after her.
* DemonicPossession: The dark lord's armor took control over her after the Underworld Army forced her to wear it.
* DualBoss: With Magnus late-game.
* DubNameChange: From "Gainas" in the Japanese version.
%%* EvilSorcerer
* {{Expy}}: Guts and Griffith had a similar affair to Magnus and Gaol's in {{Berserk}}. Magnus has a similar personality, looks, occupation, fighting style and weapon to Guts so the comparison between Gaol and Griffith AKA Femto is a pretty easy one. To play on the players' expectations, Gaol is quite different to Griffith and more closely resembles Casca.
* FrickinLaserBeams: The dark lord can do a sweeping laser attack.
* GetBackHereBoss: Is quite difficult to pin down as Gaol constantly moves around the room.
* GreenEyes: When wearing the armor. It's unknown if she actually has green eyes as her eyes are closed when she's revealed to be human.
* HornedHumanoid: When wearing the armor.
* LightningBruiser: Is quite fast, despite the heavy armor, and is strong enough to send Magnus and Pit flying with a spin of the cape.
* MeaningfulName: Her name is another word for "Prison" and an alternate spelling of the word "Jail", hinting at her being imprisoned in the armor. It also spells gal if you take out the o.
* {{Parody}}: WordOfGod states that she (while possessed by the armor) is a parody of RPG final bosses.
* SamusIsAGirl: Her real face even looks like Samus's! It's even more fitting considering she's inside a set of armor. Interestingly, in-universe, Pit seems to only be surprised that she was human.
%%* SpikesOfVillainy
%%* TinTyrant
* TokenHuman: Out of the Underworld Army.
* UseYourHead: An effective tactic when you have a helmet with horns on it.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Has this when first seen. Subverted by her second appearance as it was a voice syntheiser to disguise that she was a woman. Her voice is more feminine, but still slightly distorted.

[[folder:The Great Reaper]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_600px-bigreaper_4318.png]]
Leader of the Reapers and the boss of the Reaper's Fortress, The Great Reaper apparently sends its subordinates to collect the souls of the humans fighting in the war.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: His head and toes, and more obviously, the crack in his skull during the last leg of the fight.
* DubNameChange: From the considerably less threatening "''Big'' Reaper" in the Japanese version.
* EyeBeams: Can fire these at Pit.
* FlunkyBoss: He does summon Reapettes, but only if he lands a hit on Pit with his EyeBeams.
%%* GreenEyes
* KingMook: Essentially a far bigger, far stronger version of the normal Reaper.
* MightyGlacier: Hits like a tank, but moves as slowly as one too.
* PowerTattoo: Does not use one, but the Great Reaper Palm is patterned after him.
* ShockwaveStomp: One of its attacks.
* SicklyGreenGlow: Its eyes and its necklace.
* SinisterScythe: And it's as big as its body.
%%* SpinAttack
* VillainsOutShopping: His idol states that in his free time, he actually shinks himself to normal size to take strolls in his fortress. When he is first seen, he actually looks like a regular reaper, then grows to his giant size after noticing Pit.
* YourSoulIsMine: He was an elder Reaper that gained his power by eating a large amount of souls.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Underworld Gatekeeper]]
A powerful robotic member of The underworld forces, that, true to its name, guards the entrance to the Underworld.

%%* HumongousMecha
* ImmuneToBullets: Its body is immune to Pit's weapons, and is only taken out when Dark Pit kicks its head.
* {{Leitmotif}}: A simple, yet fast-paced and chaotic melody by Creator/MotoiSakuraba.
* LightIsNotGood: Is the most vibrant colored member of the Underworld.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Hades's Heart]]
An odd entity representing Hades's heart, existing within Hades.

* ArmlessBiped: Though it does seem to have two blood vessel-like tentacles, it never uses them for anything or even seems to control them at all.
* CelestialBody: Its body coloration looks like a night sky, deep blue with small white "stars". Has an UnmovingPlaid effect to it, as well.
* ChasingYourTail: the design of the stage regularly invokes this, regardless of who's attacking.
* GetBackHereBoss: When it's not directly attacking Pit, it's mindlessly speeding around its maze while sending exploding clones at him.
* CutenessProximity: Pit can't help but find it ''adorable'' during the boss battle.
* LightningBruiser: Moves surprisingly fast considering its rather stubby legs, especially when it TurnsRed.
* MadeOfExplodium: Its clones. The heart itself also explodes upon defeat
* MesACrowd: Its most potent ability is to create exploding clones of itself.
* OrganAutonomy: It's a heart that seems to act independently of Hades himself, and Pit's destroying it doesn't seem to hinder Hades much.
* TurnsRed: Goes on a rampage towards Pit each time it recieves damage.
* TheVoiceless: One of the few bosses to not speak at all.

!!!Underworld Soldiers

[[folder:Eggplant Wizards]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_eggplantwiz_artwork_6484.png]]
These enemies place a spell on Pit to turn him into an eggplant.

* AscendedExtra: Was just another Underworld Enemy in the original. Due to his legendary annoying ability, he not only landed a main cast role in ''Captain N: The Game Master'' (unlike Medusa, who was only in one episode as a {{Mook}}), but also made it to the front cover ''Of Myths And Monsters.''
* BlackMagic: Laugh all you want, but being turned into an Eggplant is still considered a {{Curse}}.
%%* {{Cyclops}}
* DemotedToExtra: in ''Uprising'' he's back to being just an EliteMook, only now with his eggplant attacks considerably nerfed. He still manages to gain some commercial representation through the trailers, however.
%%* GagLips
* {{Nerf}}: His infamous spell is a bit less dangerous in ''Uprising'', as it simply wears off after a while rather than forcing Pit to frantically run to a hospital. Justified, though, as Palutena is watching over Pit and uses her powers to shorten the time Pit is an eggplant.
** But to sort of counter this loss, the spell now acts like a grenade, turning Pit into an eggplant if caught in the radius and also doubling as a sort of pseudo-Poison effect.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Reapers and Reapettes]]
[[quoteright:289:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/289px-ReaperNew_3226.png]]
Skeletal members of the Underworld that lead souls of the dead to their resting place. They are easily excitable and summon small versions of themselves, called Reapettes, when an opponent is spotted.

%%* AlwaysChaoticEvil
* DarkIsEvil: While it's their job to lead souls to the underworld, Palutena notes that [[AlwaysChaoticEvil they're still evil and crazy.]]
%%* EliteMook
%%* TheGrimReaper
%%* {{Psychopomp}}
%%* SinisterScythe
* SissyVillain: In the original game, they seem to blow a total hissy fit and summon their Reapettes by kicking and screaming frantically.
* TookALevelInBadass: Elevated to borderline-DemonicSpider status in ''Uprising'', as not only do they actively attack Pit now, but they take a ''lot'' of hits to bring down and they ''hit like a truck''.
* VillainsOutShopping: Have their own specialized hot-spring for their fortress.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tempura Wizard]]
[[quoteright:288:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_tempura_final_2322.png]]
An underworld monster that has shrimp tempura for a head and sits in a rice bowl. He can turn his enemies into tempura with his spells as well, chasing them and, if caught, eating them.

* BizarreAlienBiology: Has a single eye on his tempura head, that is somehow replaced by a mouth when he starts chasing his victims.
%%* DeepFriedWhatever
* TheRival: To the Eggplant Wizard.
* ScaryBlackMan: His head aside, the Tempura Wizard has a brown skin-tone.
* SlouchOfVillainy: When not chasing angels-turned-tempura, he casts spells while reclining on a rice bowl.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Subverted. It ''looks'' like he'd be one to the Eggplant Wizard, but is in fact quite a bit worse: being turned into a tempura tires you out instantly upon trying to run, and letting him catch and eat you is a OneHitKill.
* ToServeMan: In a fashion; he turns his victims into shrimp tempura before eating, and Pit isn't entirely human to begin with. That doesn't necessarily mean he hasn't done this with humans before, though.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Take a guess.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: While wearing tempura pants, naturally.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Others]]
* AffablyEvil: Should one watch what they do before shooting them, they can be pretty amusing (i.e. being tossed about by wind, swimming in the Ocean, watching characters fight, riding on Monoliths, being hit by things and shot at, and doing InterfaceScrew.)
%%* AlwaysChaoticEvil
* AndIMustScream: Collins are Centurions that have been taken over by Phils, toxic worms that live inside in their bodies.
* AscendedExtra: All the monsters are represented by the Keepah enemy in the story section of the NES manual.
* BlatantLies: The Shulm enemy is described as meek, compare to its actual appearance [[http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/ar-cards?before=1334456644 here]].
* CoversAlwaysLie: The manual describes Uranos as a very powerful and dangerous enemy, drawing him as a fire breathing giant. In-game Uranos is a tiny and easily defeated dwarf with no special powers.
* {{Cyclops}}: More than half of the Underworld creatures are this.
%%* DarkIsEvil
* EldritchAbomination: Most of them, but one that stands out is the Clubberskull, which is sealed due to being so powerful.
* EveryoneHatesHades: Hades' roman name is used for an annoying BanditMook.
* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: Octos obviously.
* GagNose: Specknoses, which are patterned after Groucho Marx glasses.
* GiantHandsOfDoom: Snongs are a unique case, their arms only appear when summoned.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: When an Erinus splits into two, its lower half is wearing pink striped boxers.
* TheGoomba: The winged snakes called Shenum fill this role.
** The enemy Shulm also looks similar to a Goomba, particularly in the original NES game.
* TheHeartless: In Uprising; the underworld forces are created from souls of the dead, and tons of souls are required to create just one creature.
* HelpfulMook: For a brief while during the Aurum invasion arc, though they still attack Pit when unoccupied.
* KickChick: Having only legs to attack with, Mimicuties are this by default.
* TakenForGranite: Ingiots inflict this as a status effect.

!Forces of Nature

[[folder:Viridi, Goddess of Nature]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/MakikoOhmoto (JP), Creator/HyndenWalch (EN)
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_viridi_artwork_3248.png]]

-->''"Good riddance, human scum! The world's better off without you!"''

As the title implies, she's the proclaimed Goddess of Nature. Desires the obliteration of mankind for their numerous offenses against nature, and proceeds to act upon it once they impulsively start an international war over Hades' rumors about the Wish Seed.

* ACupAngst: Implied by this exchange between her and Palutena in Ch 22 after Pandora reveals her true form.
-->'''Viridi:''' ''Someone's'' overcompensating!
-->'''Palutena:''' Feeling a little... ''inadequate'', Viridi?
* AdmiringTheAbomination: A variant. She deeply cares for her Forces of Nature troops, referring to them as her children and even naming them herself. She seems to have a special love for her Bumpety Bombs, however.
* {{Adorkable}}: She has her moments.
* AffablyEvil: She's a colossal bitch most of the time, but she can get along with others sometimes. See FriendlyEnemy below.
* AllGirlsLikePonies: She sounds really enthusiastic when she mentions the unicorns on the lightning chariot.
* AMotherToHerMen: She outright refers to the Forces of Nature as her children.
* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type III]] given that she has a valid point about humans, but goes about correcting them in a [[GaiasVengeance highly]] [[NukeEm destructive]] [[MurderIsTheBestSolution manner]].
* AnythingYouCanDoICanDoBetter: In Chapter 18 , when she reveals that she can grant Pit the Power of Flight like Palutena.
-->'''Viridi:''' "Anything Palutena can do, I can do better!"
* ApocalypseHow: Attempts to invoke Species Extinction on humans through strategic use of her Reset Bombs.
* ArcVillain: For Chapters 11-14, where she overrides Hades as the current main threat for those chapters.
* AxCrazy: Has an unhealthy, near psychopathic hatred of humanity and is prone to frequently lashing out in anger.
* BigDamnHeroes: Pulls this off in Chapter 17 where she out of nowhere commands two of her Nutskis to stop Pit's fall by carrying a small-sized chunk of rock for him to land on. Pit tries to ask Viridi for her reason for doing so but she cuts him off and tells him to be ready to fight the Aurum. Her rescue in Chapter 17 is possibly [[{{Foreshadowing}} hinted at]] by her choice of words in Chapter 16 where she tells Pit that she's not here to ''help'' him but that keeping him alive is in her best interests (or view) for now. This is actually quite relevant as her actions as a result of Chapter 16 show up as trivial later on.
** Chapter 17 [[spoiler: has her save Pit as the above mentions. At this point, only Pit has the natural fighting instincts backed by being pretty smart which helps avoid situations where the 'brainless' mooks such as the Centurions, Underworld Forces and Forces of Nature main bulk would fail to even have a chance. By now, Pit is the only being present who has the best chances of winning so Viridi wasn't really lying when she was keeping Pit safe in Chapter 16.]]
** Chapters 18 (final segment) to Chapter 21 and most likely from then until the game ends. [[spoiler: Starting from Chapter 19, with Palutena now out of service due to the Chaos Kin, Viridi steps up to act as Pit's guide and provides him with the same help Palutena herself did prior to Chapter 18. The start of Chapter 19 has her sending in some of her own forces to assist Pit by having them fight the Underworld Forces that are attempting to stop Pit, with the bonus that she teleports them out of the fight should you try to hit them or if they are in your way of attacking another enemy before your hits actually strike them. Chapter 21 has her moment during the battle against the Chaos Kin, before it can flee once it realizes it's been spotted, Viridi quickly puts up a barrier that prevents it, Pit and Dark Pit from leaving, effectively stopping its retreat. During the battle she puts up an electro-trap in the center of the arena which you can use by cleverly baiting the Chaos Kin to dash at you and run into it instead, allowing you and Dark Pit to land a good number of needed blows should you be unable to keep up with the Chaos Kin's speed. These Chapters also seem to have some importance too her quote from Chapter 16 when asked if she was 'helping' Pit, although there was Dark Pit in this case (it took both Pit and Dark Pit to defeat the Chaos Kin though) as he wasn't present in the Aurum Arc.]]
** Chapter 23. Entirely offscreen but the words that Hades tells Pit indicates that Viridi is taking a huge risk by having her forces attack Hades in a bold and daring attempt to save Pit even when Hades by himself is by far leagues stronger than her entire army. Maybe this is why said boss is a coward during the boss battle.
* BigGood: Takes the role during Chapters 18-21 due to Palutena being BrainwashedAndCrazy[=/=]TakenForGranite. The main menu even changes to match her style.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: For humans, considering that Mother Nature herself, one of the most idolized deities in mankind, is shown to have an unhealthy hatred for them all.
* BlackAndGreyMorality: Though Viridi wants to exterminate humanity, she's also against the destruction and harvesting of souls committed by the Underworld Army.
* BlackAndWhiteInsanity: With regards to humanity. She views humans as inherently evil and destructive beings who are incapable of change.
* BrattyHalfPint: Having the appearance of an eight-year-old girl, she fits this in comparison to the other gods. To put this in perspective, when she first appears on the top screen, she's "standing" behind some mountains, and having the 3D depth turned up will show her much further in the distance than most gods - in other words, she uses forced perspective to look taller than she might usually be.
* CantTakeCriticism: In Chapter 22, Dark Pit outright tells her and Palutena that they and their "stupid wars" are just as responsible for throwing the world of balance as Hades is; while Palutena actually has the guts to admit that Dark Pit [[JerkassHasAPoint isn't entirely wrong]], Viridi is just pissed that a "little nothing" like him would dare speak to her like that.
* CatchPhrase: Doesn't actually have one, but it might as well be her snide "Ugh!" considering how often she says it.
* CatSmile: When she's gloating. Sometimes crosses over into PsychoticSmirk.
* TheCavalry: Happens offscreen, but she sends her army to attack Hades while Pit is trapped in his belly.
* CharacterExaggeration: Viridi is more of a DeadpanSnarker in the English dub than she is in the original Japanese version, where she's more of a {{Tsundere}}.
* ColonyDrop: Drops Reset Bombs on the places that are being destroyed by humans. Succeeds the first time, but it always fails later.
* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: Though Viridi doesn't merit ''all'' the blame, In Ch. 20, she does admit that the Chaos Kin scenario could've been avoided all together had she or Arlon explained the purpose of the Lunar Sanctum.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Blonde hair and gold eyes.
* CuteAndPsycho: A goddess with the appearance of an 8-year-old and a disturbing hate for humanity.
* CutenessProximity: She really, really loves her Bumpety Bombs.
* DeadpanSnarker: Doesn't come as a shock, given that ''everybody else'' is one, but she stands out among everyone else. Even Pit points out she always insults him whenever he opens his mouth.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Towards Pit anyway. As the two are forced to work together, she begins to warm up to him. Only time will tell whether this will extend to humanity as a whole.
* DubNameChange: From "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Naturé]], [[SheIsTheKing King of Nature]]" in the Japanese version.
* EnemyMine: Viridi partners up with Palutena and Hades to fight the Aurum invasion. She also helps Pit out during the Chaos Kin arc, filling in for Palutena.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: She's outright appalled when she realizes just how many souls it takes to make an army of Underworld monsters, even though those souls are those of the humans she so despises. Also, despite being a firm believer in HumansAreBastards, she nonetheless makes it clear that she sees humans as the LesserOfTwoEvils compared to the Underworld Army.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: For a given value of evil anyway. She just doesn't understand what Pit and Palutena see in humanity and frequently questions why they would fight for a species she considers inferior. At the end, after Hades is defeated, she gets into one last debate with them about humanity, but quickly storms off in annoyance when she can't convince them otherwise.
* ExplainingYourPowerToTheEnemy: A variation in that she doesn't explain her own power, but that of the one of her mooks:
-->'''Viridi''': That's a Jitterthug. Melee attacks won't hurt him at all when he's red. And when he's green, shooting him won't work! What are you gonna do ''now''?\\
'''Pit''': Uh... I guess I'll just melee him when he's green and shoot him when he's red.\\
'''Viridi''': [[OhCrap But... Oh, darn it!]]\\
'''Palutena''': [[LampshadeHanging Thanks for the advice!]]
* {{Expy}}: Of the greek goddess of harvest/nature Demeter especially since she cannot stand Hades and how if she doesn't get her way, she won't hesitate to destroy humanity.
* FantasticRacism: Towards humanity. And she's ''not'' shy about it either.
* FemmeFatalons: She states that her nails can tear the very earth and the planet asunder, but a closer look reveals her nails are that of a child. She was probably referring to the Viridi Claws.
* FlowerInHerHair: A purple one, that matches the one on her dress, because PurpleIsPowerful!
* {{Foil}}: To Palutena. Both characters help Pit out during the game and both possess similar powers, but their stances on humans are polar opposites of each other. Palutena is aware that humans are flawed, but believe that they have the potential to grow, learn, and change while Viridi believes that humans are inherently evil and destructive and incapable of change.
* FortuneTeller: Apparently, she does this service.
* FriendlyEnemy: Insults and sarcastic remarks aside, she and Pit get along pretty well when they're working together, especially in their random conversations.
* GaiasVengeance: Played viciously straight through the use of her Reset Bombs, which are tailor-made to kill humans and destroy their cities, while leaving natural habitats and wildlife alone, and then expanding into twisted forests.
* GardenGarment: Her clothing seems mostly made out of flowers and other natural materials. Fitting given her status as "Goddess of Nature".
* GoodIsNotNice: Though she gradually warms up to Pit and helps him on several occasions, her snarky and bratty attitude combined with her volatile temper makes getting along with her a bit of a chore to say the least.
* GranolaGirl: Oh dear.
-->''I use cloth shopping bags! I compost my food scraps! And I separate my garbage into fifteen types!''
* GreenEyes: In her in-game model, her eyes have a more greenish hue to them.
* GreenThumb: Comes with the title of "Goddess of Nature".
* HairTriggerTemper: It's not entirely difficult to make her angry.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: At first, she's a villain, then becomes allies with Pit and Palutena over the course of the game to defeat the Aurum and Hades. According to Dark Pit's Palutena's Guidance conversation in ''Smash 4'', after the events of ''Uprising'', she's gone back to being Pit's enemy.
-->'''Viridi''': Just because we fought together once doesn't mean we're all buddy-buddy now.
* HeelFaceTurn: That being said, however, her opinions on humans do not seem to have changed.
* HumansAreBastards: While all of the gods have this belief to some degree, she is the standout example. And this belief gets taken to dangerous extremes.
* {{Hypocrite}}:
** She claims that humans are selfish and destructive and that she must destroy them before they do further harm to the earth. [[JerkassHasAPoint While technically she has a point]], her actions are just as destructive, if not more so.
** Played for laughs in the Japanese version. She'll criticize Pit's name for being a cliche pun off of Cupid. Even though in Japan, her name is '''Nature'''. It's not even in any sort of language.
* ImmortalImmaturity: As old as the earth, but has the mentality and emotional maturity of an 8-year-old.
* ImpliedLoveInterest: It's worth noting that she goes all {{Tsundere}} for Pit eventually, and the Pit-equippable Viridi Palm is (according to it's description) only worn by those completely devoted to Viridi.
* IWasJustPassingThrough: Insists that she's only helping Pit because it's in her best interest to do. While that is true due to the circumstances, her SuspiciouslySpecificDenial makes it obvious that she really does care about him.
* {{Jerkass}}: Volatile, immature, bratty, hypocritical, and bossy. Basically the quintessential BrattyHalfPint.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Eventually turns into this with some CharacterDevelopment as she eventually warms up to Pit. However, it doesn't really apply to humanity.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Played with. Both Pit and Palutena agree that she has valid points about humans, but they both insist that her actions are completely wrong.
* KarmaHoudini: She's the only Goddess that Pit doesn't fight, most likely because she [[HideYourChildren looks like a child]]. You fight her servants instead, as well as destroying the base where she makes the Reset Bombs. While she eventually warms up and becomes friendlier to Pit, she never apologizes or is punished for killing off a considerable amount of the human population.
* KillAllHumans: Viridi believes mankind to be a blight that will ultimately destroy the world, and to save nature, she must bomb them all to hell.
* KnightTemplar: Towards the earth, justifing her actions by saying that she must exterminate the humans to save the earth from further damage.
* LittleMissBadass: The Goddess of Nature and the leader of the Forces of Nature is no more physically imposing than your average eight year old.
* LittleMissSnarker: She's little, and she's ''really'' snarky.
* MeaningfulName: "Viridi" came from the word ''viridis'' which means either green, young, fresh, lively or youthful. Considering she's the Goddess of Nature with a young appearance, you would think that it would be her Japanese name as well. [[DubNameChange It isn't]], her Japanese name is "Naturé" which is, well... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysontheTin Take a wild guess.]]
* MissionControl: During the Chaos Kin arc. After you beat the game, you can choose to switch between her and Palutena.
* MisterBig: Having the body of an eight-year-old girl, most of the cast, including Pit and her commanders, [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/kidicarus/images/f/fa/Kiuheight.png tower over her]].
* MoralityPet: Pit becomes one to her. The only explanation as to why she's never punished for her crimes is that she's developed a soft spot for him.
* NatureSpirit: The Goddess of Nature.
* NoYou: Viridi [[JerkassHasAPoint has valid points about humans]], but her biggest detriment is her inability to accept she is wrong or at least be able to justify her views without flying off the handle like Posideon. When Pit and Palutena point out that killing humanity is not the answer, she always shrugs it off, saying they're doing the same thing to the Underworld forces. [[{{Hypocrite}} Despite hating and attacking the Underworld herself]]. Later, in chapter 22, when Dark Pit tells her that she and the other gods are just as responsible for disrupting the balance as Hades is, Viridi is just pissed that a "little nothing" like him would dare to speak to her like that, contrasting Palutena, who actually admits that Dark Pit [[JerkassHasAPoint isn't entirely wrong]].
* NotMeThisTime: Does this with the Aurum, pointing out to Pit she had nothing to do with them.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In Chapter 19, after the Chariot Master dies in his fight with Pit, Viridi comforts Pit by telling him that the Chariot Master was an honorable warrior and Pit should not let his death be in vain. It's one of the rare moments where Viridi stops being a {{Jerkass}}.
* PestController: Some of the monsters in the Forces of Nature are insects.
* PimpedOutDress: One seemingly made of natural materials.
* PowerTattoo: Does not have one, but the Viridi Palm takes the appearance of a tattoo of her on the wearer's right arm.
* PreMortemOneLiner: When dropping her last reserved Reset Bomb on the Pyrrhon-controlled Aurum:
-->"Time to let nature take its course."
* PsychopathicManchild: Though more mature than Thanatos, she has her moments. Once she makes a HeelFaceTurn, the "psychopathic" part mostly leaves.
* RapunzelHair: Even when tied up in a ponytail, it's still long. Picture what it would look like untied.
* Really700YearsOld: WordOfGod states she has the body of an 8 year old, but being a goddess, she's clearly much older. She states the reason she looks so young is because she takes care of her skin. When Pit asks her how old she is, she simply states that she's immortal.
* SheIsTheKing: Her title in the Japanese game is "King of Nature".
* ShipTease: An easy to miss moment in Chapter 16 suggests she might have a soft spot for Pit. To drive it home further, the Viridi Palm is a weapon only usable by beings completely devoted to her. It's also a weapon that Pit can use. And it ''paints her face on a heart'' on his arm.
* SinisterScythe: Her staff resembles one.
* StaffOfAuthority Like all the goddesses in this game, she has one.
* StealthPun: She's the goddess of nature and refers to her minions as her children. She's mother nature.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: In her official artwork. Also extends to her troops.
* {{Tsundere}}: A fierce Type A, especially towards Pit. Whenever she helps him, she claims that it's simply in her best interest to do so. Palutena even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades it at one point.]] Outright called one in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4duhVDc1fc Japanese version]]. Localized as Little Miss Cactus.
* TheUnfought: Justified that you fight her minions and commanders, and that from Chapter 15 on, there's always bigger threats that end up drawing Viridi into battling ''with'' you.
* WolverineClaws: Does not use any, but she possibly created the Viridi Claws.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Decides to end human-related devastation of nature [[ApocalypseHow by ending the human race itself]]. Both Pit and Palutena admit that she has a valid point, but insist that Viridi is going about it the wrong way.

!!!Forces of Nature Commanders

[[folder:Cragalanche the Mighty]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_600px-cragalanche_artwork_8322.png]]

-->''"..."''

A rocky golem-like being that is an extremely loyal servant of Viridi's. He is one of the leaders of her forces, similar to how Pit leads Plautena's forces.

* {{Acrofatic}}: He's quite mobile for a giant rock monster. One attack even has him briefly ''hovering in midair''.
* AntiVillain: He only attacks Pit out of loyalty for Viridi.
* AttackItsWeakPoint: His glowing butthole.
* {{BFG}}: Does not use one, but a weapon called the Cragalanche Cannon is modeled after him.
* TheBrute: Of the Forces of Nature.
* BullfightBoss: Pit has to get behind him to AttackItsWeakPoint.
* ChargeAttack: One of his moves has him charging at Pit like a meteor.
* DeathFromAbove: This is how he is introduced. Fittingly, his idol states that he tends to arrive on the front lines like a meteor. One attack during the fight has him attempting to body slam Pit.
* DishingOutDirt: His main method of attack is manipulating rocks.
* DubNameChange: From "Rocka" in the Japanese version.
%%* ElementalPowers
* GiantHandsOfDoom: One of his attacks has him enlarging his right hand to perform a MegatonPunch at Pit.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: Has glowing red and unblinking eyes.
* MagmaMan: Some of his other attacks involve throwing rocks of molten magma and charging at Pit like a meteor.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: Nearly all of his attacks expose his weak point, and the ones that don't actually have weak points so they can be stopped.
* TunnelKing: Can burrow underground at tremendous speed to preform a {{Shoryuken}}.
* TheVoiceless: Descibed as the strong, quiet type by Viridi. She talks for him and uses HulkSpeak.
** She claims it's because he's a rock. [[WildCardExcuse Yeah, a living, battle-capable rock]].
* WhipItGood: Can turn his left hand into a whip.

[[folder:Arlon the Serene]]

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_300px-arlon_artwork_1054.png]]

-->''"Why on earth would I be attacking? I'm far too busy... ''defending'', my dear."''

An ally of Viridi. He is the commander of the Lunar Sanctum.

* AffablyEvil: He's very polite to Pit and Palutena, only fighting them to defend Viridi's property. He even considers teaming up with Palutena against Hades, refusing only on the grounds of his loyalty to Viridi.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: His skin is entirely purple.
* AntiVillain: The only reason Pit attacks him is because he sides with Viridi.
* AttackDrones: Does not use any, but a weapon called the Arlon Orbitars is modeled after him.
* BadassBookworm: Had to be to have built the Lunar Sanctum.
* BadassGrandpa: Is the oldest member of the Forces of Nature, and it has not slowed him down one bit.
* BadassMustache: A big, thick white mustache.
* BattleButler: Dresses like a regular butler and is described as such in his AR card.
* CastingAShadow: One of his powers can darken the room as you battle.
* CombatPragmatist: Most of the boss fight has him attacking Pit from the shadows.
* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: As Viridi stated, the Chaos Kin situation could have been avoided if he had just explained the purpose of the Lunar Sanctum to Pit and Palutena.
* EvilBrit: Again, not really evil, just antagonizing Pit and Palutena out of loyalty.
* TheEvilGenius: Of the Forces of Nature.
* GeniusBruiser: The creator of the Lunar Sanctum and a capable fighter despite his age.
* GetBackHereBoss: Spends the entirety of the battle moving around the room, stopping only to attack Pit. Gets even worse when he darkens the stage.
* GlassCannon: Arlon can throw many powerful energy attacks, but his slender frame and age makes him more vulnerable to attacks, which is the main reason he [[CombatPragmatist fights from the shadows]].
%%* HighClassGlass
* IGaveMyWord: His reason for not telling Pit and Palutena about the Chaos Kin; he took an oath of silence.
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: Compared to all of Viridi's troops, Arlon is pretty random in that he doesn't seem to have any sort of relation to nature itself. [[ThatsNoMoon His moon-for-a-base doesn't help]].
* LoadBearingBoss: [[LivingBattery As Arlon's energy is what powers the Lunar Sanctum]], defeating him causes the temple to collapse. And considering [[EldritchAbomination what he's]] [[SealedEvilInACan keeping sealed]], it ''really'' sucks for everyone when Pit defeats him.
* MasterOfIllusion: His level is littered with fake walls, invisible switches and floors, and walking holograms of Forces Of Nature soilders.
* MeaningfulName: Arlon the ''Serene'' fits his personality quite well. In addition, "Serene" is one letter away from "Selene", a Greek ''Moon'' goddess.
* OnlySaneMan: One of the less eccentric and wacky characters in the game.
%%* QuintessentialBritishGentleman
* TheStoic: Is always calm and never raises his voice, even in battle.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: Arlon's attacks will give away his location clearly. And even when he isn't attacking, if one looks hard enough, you can see his shadow moving in the darkness.

[[folder:Lightning Flash Phosphora]]
!!!Voiced by: Yuka Komatsu (JP), Creator/KariWahlgren (EN, ''Uprising''), Stephanie Komure (EN, ''Smash 4'')
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_457px-phosphora_artwork_4294.png]]

-->''"It's just one fight after another! Today is not my day."''

Another ally of Viridi. She specializes in lightning-based attacks.

* AffablyEvil: Really only considered to be "evil" due to her association with Viridi. She's actually quite nice and even flirts with Pit a little, which is further demonstrated by her assisting Pit with the Lightning Chariot after the Forces of Nature's HeelFaceTurn.
* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type IV]] given that like Arlon, the only reason Pit attacks her is because she's on Viridi's side.
* ArcherArchetype: Haughty, ranged specialist, graceful - all great descriptions of Phosphora's nature. Plus, the weapon that Pit gets patterned after her is a bow.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Stands out as the most powerful warrior in the Forces of Nature.
* BadassAdorable: Much like Pit, she's cute and friendly. But that doesn't mean she can't kick ass. She manages to beat Thanatos in a straight-on fight and despite being wounded and weakened, she manages to put up a decent fight against Pit. In fact, it's implied that the only reason Pit won was because she was weak from her fight with Thanatos and had she been at full power, Pit probably wouldn't have stood a chance.
* BareYourMidriff: Wears a midriff-baring tube top.
* BattleAura: When she TurnsRed.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: One minute, she's talking and flirting with you like she's your best friend. The next minute, she's frying you alive with lightning bolts.
* BloodKnight: A milder and much more tame variation. When Pit begins his rally cry, Phosphora fires a few bolts of lightning at him, interrupting his rally cry and telling him to just skip to the main act.
* BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu: She managed to defeat Thanatos in the Air Battle, but it unfortunately left her weak enough for Pit to battle her.
* CombatPragmatist: One of the very few of Pit's foes to avert TalkingIsAFreeAction by attacking him in the midst of his [[InTheNameOfTheMoon rallying cry]].
* CuteBruiser: The strongest commander of the Forces of Nature is no more physically intimidating than your average teenager.
* DarkActionGirl: Though she's more of an AntiVillain, it still fits.
* DeathFromAbove: Can call down lightning strikes from the sky during her boss battle.
* DistaffCounterpart: To some extent she's a counterpart to Pit, but for the Forces of Nature. Both are the NumberTwo to their respective goddesses, both are the strongest commanders in their armies, and both are capable of taking on gods. Moreover, the weapon patterned after her abilities is a bow, Pit's signature weapon.
* TheDragon: For Viridi.
* DubNameChange: From "Eleca" in the Japanese version.
* EvilVersusEvil: Her introduction invokes this with Thanatos, where Palutena ends up wondering [[OhCrap if Pit'll have to fight both of them at once.]]
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Invoked. Phosphora herself says in her debut chapter that she wasn't going to have a great day after reading Viridi's fortune. [[JustForPun Naturally]], she gets taken down.
* {{Flight}}: Can fly through the air at incredible speed.
* GadgeteerGenius: A largely InformedAbility, but the Electro Trap's idol descrpiton states that she developed an earlier model while in the Thunder Cloud Temple...
* GeniusBruiser: Which would make her this by default.
* GetBackHereBoss: Constantly moves around the room, even teleporting on occasion, though she'll also try to close the gap with powerful [[KickChick kick attacks]].
* GroundPound: One attack during her boss fight has her punching the ground to create a dome-shaped explosion of electricity.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: She has blonde hair and is a pretty nice girl.
* HandwrapsOfAwesome: Wears black handwraps on her wrists and feet.
* HiddenDepths: See GadgeteerGenius above.
* HighSpeedBattle: Against Thanatos.
* InformedFlaw: Her trophy in ''Smash 4'' states that she's not a good singer.
* LightningBruiser: Pun aside, she's fast as lightning and her electrical powers make her a potent threat.
* LivingBattery: Serves as this for the Thunder Cloud Temple. Defeating her destroys the temple.
* LoadBearingBoss: [[LivingBattery As her energy is what powers the Thunder Cloud Temple]], defeating her causes the temple to collapse.
* MsFanservice: She complements this with her outfit and flirty nature.
* {{Meaningful Name}}: Unlike Viridi, whose Japanese name has less creative input to it, Phosphora's name in both English and Japanese has more to it than one might think. Her English name came from ''phosphorus'', which means "light-bringer" while her Japanese name, "Eleca," seems to be a combination of ''Electra'', a mythological nymph, and ''Erica'', a type of flower. Eleca (and even more so Electra) also sounds similar to "electric."
* NotQuiteDead: Ch 20 reveals she survived her fight with Pit in Ch. 14, helping him alongside Viridi.
* NumberTwo: To Viridi.
* PowerOfTheStorm: Implied to be able to command storms.
%%* PurpleEyes
* ScarfOfAsskicking: A long blue scarf that flows whenever she uses her powers.
* ShipTease: She teases Pit and calls him cute. Pit's [[LuminescentBlush reaction]] doesn't help.
* ShockAndAwe: [[CaptainObvious well, duh.]] Aside from just zapping people, Phosphora can also turn into a bolt of lightning for quick transport.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: And to complement this, she has vines tangling some parts of her body. [[TheDragon This only enforces her dragon status to Viridi]].
* SuperSpeed: [[JustForPun She moves like lightning]].
* TurnsRed: "[[BattleAura Charging complete~!]]"
* ValleyGirl: Slips into this from time to time.
%%* WhoWearsShortShorts
* WorfHadTheFlu: Her idol states that she was still wounded from her fight with Thanatos when she fights Pit, hence her not displaying the same amount of power she did before.
* YellowLightningBlueLightning: Her lightning is in both colors, as well as [[PurpleIsPowerful purple lightning]].

[[folder:Forces of Nature Soldiers]]
Creatures that are created by and serve Viridi, like their name suggests they are made with natural resources.

* BigCreepyCrawlies: The Megontas are large pillbugs.
* FluffyTheTerrible: Most of the Forces of Nature soldiers have jarringly cute names. Case in point: Bumpety Bomb and Boom Stomper. Viridi named them herself.
* HelpfulMook: They fight with you during the Aurum invasion.
** Nutskis in particular carry a platform for Pit to stand on.
* PuppeteerParasite: One of the kinds of creatures faced is a fungus that has killed and taken over a very large Rhino beetle.
* SuperPersistentPredator: According to its idol description, once angered it takes three days for a Clobbler to calm down. [[GameplayAndStorySegregation (It actually does so quite quickly if you leave it alone.)]]
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: There are several troops that behave like reskins of Underworld enemies, such as Nutskis when compared to Monoeyes.
** Clobblers are similar to Clubberskulls in that they're harmless until attacked, at which point they become very dangerous. Clobblers will at least walk around when nonhostile, albeit aimlessly.

[[folder:The Space Pirates]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_pirate1_artwork_6847.png]]
A race of aliens that steal constellations from the heavens to sell. Unfortunately, they were caught up in the war due to having mistakingly taken the three Sacred Treasures which were hidden in one of them.

* ArmCannon: Space Pirate Commandos and Sniper Pirates, their guns take up their entire fore-arms.
* BadassNormal: Unlike other enemies in the game, the space pirates have no real powers of their own, but are willing and able to punch the living daylights out of you, snipe you, and blow you up with rocket lauchers. They can even take down underworld goons if you allow them to (some of the best examples being two snipers that are able to kill a [[DemonicSpider Clubberskull]], as well as a lone Commando squaring off against a Snowman).
* ColdSniper: Space Pirate Snipers, whose shooting animation is rather identical to the archetypical sniper.
%%* EnergyBeings
* EvilPoacher: Ones that steal constellations, no less.
* MonumentalTheft: Though, considering that this universe is largely based on mythology, it might be a bit more believable that they can steal constellations.
* PowerFist: All of them, but most prominant in the Yellow space pirates (who fist-fight); where their idol description states that they have exoskeletons, making natural gauntlets on their hands.
%%* SpacePirates:
* ThirdEye: Snipers have these to make up for sight lost when in their sniping position.
* TooDumbToLive: Averted with Snipers, some don't seem to realize you need to be hidden from sight, and/or out of reach for sniping to work. Some however, like the two that fight the Clubberskull, at least try to stay out of their opponents reach by standing on higher platforms, the key word being "try". Early on in the stage, there is an explosive barrel in a corridor. Naturally, the first space pirate runs right to it and starts attacking Pit from that spot.
* VillainsOutShopping: The pirates have a hotspring on board their ship; when you come across it, a Commando is chilling out there.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Space Pirate Captain]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_1431px-spacepiratecaptain_798.jpg]]
The Leader of the Space Pirates, the Captain pilots his starship with his crew, stealing stars that make constellations in the Galactic Sea. He keeps the Three Sacred Treasures with him after stealing the constellation they were hidden on.

* BadBoss: He is weaker than his subordinates, and somehow managed to take charge through sheer bossiness. Thus, he is not very popular amongst the crew.
* BaitAndSwitchBoss: He is eaten by the Galactic Fiend Kraken.
%%* BitCharacter
* BitPartBadguys: The only reason he's brought into the story is due to him having the Three Treasures.
* NoIndoorVoice: He spends most of his time screaming into a megaphone.
* RedAlert: While working your way through his ship, he can be heard in the background, shouting in alien tongues, probably giving orders to his crew on how to face the threat of both Pit and the Underworld Army.
* TheUnfought: Right as Pit gets to him, the Galactic Fiend Kraken makes him into a quick snack.
* TheUnpronounceable: His idol states that his true name is impossible for human tongues to pronounce.
* WickedCultured: His armour is the most decorated and colourful out of the crew, but that may just be natural coloring.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Galactic Fiend Kraken]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_galactickraken_artwork_3876.png]]
A monstrous leviathan that hunts in the Galactic Sea, It eats the Space Pirate Captain and decides that Pit is just too good a morsel to pass up on.

* CombatTentacles: Massive ones that Pit has to shoot down.
* EldritchAbomination: The only thing it doesn't seem to pose a threat to are the gods.
* EyeBeams: Can fire these at Pit.
* FlyingSeafoodSpecial: Yes, SpaceIsAnOcean, but there's no water around. So we've got a kraken that can breathe and maneuver through the vacuum of space, somehow.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: In the middle of an assault on space pirates who had taken one of the Three Sacred Treasures, Pit expected to fight their captain, not a giant squid. {{Lampshaded}} by Palutena.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: An odd variation, there are glowing spots on its eyes that shift position constantly in a pattern; and in addition its eyes glow for a second before one of its attacks.
* KrakenAndLeviathan: Of the intersellar variety.
* MakingASplash: Even though it lives in space, it can shoot water from its mouth.
* PowerFist: Does not use one, but a gauntlet called the Kraken Arm can be acquired.
%%* SuperPersistentPredator
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pseudo-Palutena]]
A copy of Palutena brought about by Dyntos, she considers herself beautiful, even when you reveal her comically disgusting face.

* BossBanter: While most bosses avert being annoying by having pre-scripted dialogue, Pseudo Palutena will proceed to rattle off the same obnoxious and loud quotes and screeches throughout the whole battle. This is most likely intentionally annoying, given the rest of the game avoiding it.
%%* ButterFace
* EvilKnockoff: Of Palutena.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: There's absolutely no indication that an ugly mockery of Palutena is one of Dyntos' challenges until she suddenly appears.

[[folder:The Immortal Phoenix]]
A legendary and ancient bird that lives on top of a volcano. It guards the Wish Seed, which is actually a ruse set by Hades to make the humans fight each other.

* MacGuffin: Guards one in the form of the wish seed, said to grant any one wish.
%%* ThePhoenix
* PlayingWithFire: Its main method of attacking.
* PowerFist: While the Phoenix itself does not use one, a weapon modeled after it, called The Phoenix Arm, can be acquired.

* CoolSword: The Aurum Blade is patterned after them.

[[folder:'''SPOILER CHARACTER''']]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chaos_kin.jpg]]
!!The Chaos Kin

-->''Everything changes, Pit... even ''Gods''''!

An ancient entity of pure evil and chaos that is accidentally released during the battle of the Lunar Sanctum. Using Palutena as its host, it seeks to plunge the world into endless conflict and chaos.

* ArcVillain: For Chapters 18 to 21.
* BewareMyStingerTail: Primarily uses its tail to steal souls, and can use it for combat purposes.
* BigCreepyCrawlies: The thing is a freakish blend of a moth, a scorpion, and a spider.
* BreakThemByTalking: While possessing Palutena, the Chaos Kin berates and insults Pit in an attempt to break his spirit.
* ChaosIsEvil: A being of chaos that desires nothing less than total destruction.
* CombatPragmatist: The Chaos Kin is not above hiding behind its possessed victims and then dragging the unexpected down with it off with it. It also loves attacking the characters from behind.
* CombatTentacles: At least during its final moments when it tried to drag Pittoo down via a TentacleRope.
* CowardlyBoss: In both of its boss fights, the only time it stops hiding and/or scurrying around for a decent length of time is when you manage to stun it.
* DefiantToTheEnd: It attempts to drag Dark Pit down with itself when defeated in the Chaos Vortex.
* DemonicPossession: It possesses Palutena, causing her to go mad and turn against humanity.
* DiabolusExNihilo: It's mentioned in-universe that nobody knows where it came from.
* DirtyCoward: It hides behind Palutena when it shows itself during the first battle (provoking Pit to outright call it one), it sends an army of enemies to do its dirty work, and it tries to escape when finally cornered and exhausted in Chapter 21. The only thing stopping it is a quick forcefield Viridi sets up around the arena.
* DubNameChange: It was known as the "Envoy of Chaos" in the Japanese version.
* DystopiaJustifiesTheMeans: The Chaos Kin seeks to spread discord and malice wherever it goes.
* EldritchAbomination: It is [[SealedEvilInACan locked away]] for its vileness, it resembles an incredibly grotesque mix of a moth, a spider, a scorpion, and a cockroach, and it eats souls, including the soul of a goddess. Its realm, the [[EldritchLocation Chaos Vortex]] is bizarre, to say the least.
* FateWorseThanDeath: It is still alive as a pile of ash, and could only be revived by possessing Dark Pit. Fortunately, Pit was able to save him, leaving the Chaos Kin trapped inside the Chaos Vortex for all eternity.
* FragileSpeedster: It's a speedy demon that can throw many quick attacks at you, but it can't take that many hits in comparison, as it has fairly low health in its boss fight.
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: The Chaos Kin's idol description outright states that it is a mindless creature who possesses nothing but the desire to cause destruction.
* GetBackHereBoss: During the air segment of Chapter 21.
* KickTheDog: Leaves Pit stranded in an inanimate object for three whole years, kidnaps and brainwashes his goddess while doing so, proceeds to mock the very things he was raised to believe in right from the same mouth of said goddess, steals Palutena's soul when Pit frees her from his control, and finally tries to possess Dark Pit in a last ditch effort to revive itself and make Pit suffer. Its whole life is basically one long string of this.
* KnightOfCerebus: While Hades is cruel and callous, he is at least, enjoyable and entertaining. The Chaos Kin and its actions are taken much more seriously with no humor to balance it out.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6AQuJkdS9A Has one]] that plays in in several sections in its StoryArc.
* MadeOfIron: Even despite looking like an oversized bug and having low health in its boss battle, it is pretty resilient. It survived a beating from Pit, taking several more hits after being shot down in the Chaos Vortex, then still had enough energy to conjure up thirteen waves of monsters. Afterwards, it had another boss battle with Pit, but then survives being turned into ash and still made one last attempt to revive itself before it was too late for it. According to its Idol description, it's still alive, just trapped in the Chaos Vortex.
* MookMaker: To an insane degree. Notably, it creates copies of Aurum enemies that were already copies of the Forces of Nature. Pit and Viridi note this redundancy.
* NearVillainVictory: In the three years between chapters 17 and 18, its not only completely taken over Sky World and its forces, but has done more damage to the human world than even ''Hades'', even managing to temporarily turn Magnus against Pit.
* OmnicidalManiac: It simply desires disorder and destruction, nothing more.
* PuppeteerParasite: Takes control of Palutena while trying to feed on her soul.
* RecurringBoss: It's the primary target in Chapter 20's fight despite Palutena being the aggressor, you engage it in aerial combat for the second half of Chapter 21's Air Battle segment, and finally you get a formal boss battle against it at the end of 21.
* SealedEvilInACan: It was sealed inside the Lunar Sanctum. The green glow escaping at the end of Chapter 13 is actually the Chaos Kin. The idol of its ash form reveals that after its bout with Pit it's now contained in the Chaos Vortex in its weakened state.
* TheSpeechless: It can only talk when it's possessing someone.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: The first time you fight it, it will sometimes wrap itself around Palutena. If it just hung on to Palutena the whole time, it would've been impossible to defeat it. And then the second time you fight it, it will sometimes try to close in on you for a melee attack, but can be foiled by an electro trap.
* TakingYouWithMe: Once Pit exorcises it from Palutena, it decides to have the last laugh by ''stealing her soul''. And it does it again by trying to take Dark Pit down with it once the two manage to get Palutena's soul back, albeit this time in an attempt to revive itself later.
* ThinkingUpPortals: Can use its tail to cleave a portal into the Chaos Vortex.
%%* VileVillainSaccharineShow: Unlike the rest of the characters in this game, the Chaos Kin itself is completely silent on its own and not over the top like the others, its actions are taken far more seriously, and has nearly destroyed the world in three years. It's just as vile as Hades, but at least he provides entertainment with his villainy.
* TheVoiceless: It can't speak on its own. But it can speak when possessing others, and when its possessing Palutena, it is ''very'' vocal, and [[BreakThemByTalking not in a good way]].
* WalkingSpoiler: Its arc marks the start of a WhamEpisode, and a big one at that.
* YourSoulIsMine: It has the ability to consume souls, and it rips out Palutena's soul in front of Pit and escapes into its home dimension.

!Palutena's Army

[[folder:Pit]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/MinamiTakayama (JP), Creator/LaniMinella (EN, ''Brawl''), Troy Lund (EN, ''[[TheOtherMarty Uprising]]'' [[TheOtherMarty E3 Trailer]]), Antony del Rio (EN, ''Uprising'' & ''Smash 4'')
!!!Debut: ''VideoGame/KidIcarus''
[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_423px-250px-pit_uprising_6296.png]]

-->''"Sorry to keep you waiting!"''

The leader of Palutena's personal guard: though he is young, he is the greatest warrior angel in Palutena's forces. While Pit has wings, they're just for decoration. Usually he can't fly—it's a bit of a touchy subject.

* TheAce: It was said in game that he's the most competent member of Palutena's army, that's actually an understatement. He may not be able to fly on his own, but that hasn't stopped him from ''taking on entire armies by himself.'' In addition, he's literally gone through hell [[Characters/KidIcarusProtagonistsAndAllies Protagonists and back (as well as earth and space). Magnus notes that Pit is basically the only member of Palutena's army who can pull his own weight. During the course of ''Uprising'', he manages to kick the ass of literally ''everyone with a character portrait'' except for three people. [[labelnote:*]]Poseidon, Viridi, and Dyntos. But all three are justified for different reasons. Poseidon only showed up for Ch 7 to help Pit get to the Seafloor Palace and was never an enemy to begin with. For Viridi, circumstances in the plot forced the two of them to fight alongside each other rather than against each other. And Dyntos is implied to be even more powerful than Hades, who Pit could barely defeat without outside help.[[/labelnote]]
* {{Adorkable}}: You better believe it! His love for Nintendo video games, fanatical loyalty to
Allies]][[note]]Pit, Palutena, and general goofiness make him endearingly dorky.
* AFatherToHisMen: A sequence of dialogue in chapter 17 shows that he values the centurions' lives more than his own, and perhaps more impressively, the feeling is mutual.
* AffectionateNickname: For a certain use of the word "affectionate", Hades very often calls him "Pitty Pat".
* AintTooProudToBeg: In chapter 23, when faced with the possibility of being [[ToiletHumor defecated]] out of Hades' WombLevel, he absolutely freaks out and resorts to this:
-->'''Pit''': Okay, okay, fine! I give up! Please spare me! ''Please!''
* AllLovingHero: Pit is the kindest and most morally upright character in the game, friendly to everyone he meets. He always tries to see the good in everyone and will often work with his enemies if it means saving people. He will even forgive his enemies if they prove that they can reform. But if you prove to be truly beyond redemption, ''you will die''.
* AlmightyJanitor: Granted he makes use of weapons when not all of his opponents do, but he's still a servant of the gods that takes them on (including his boss) and wins. Though this is only in terms of the Gods he's fighting against. In the idol text and dialogue, he's mentioned to be Captain of the Guard.
* AndIMustScream: In chapter 18, he's stuck in a ring with no way to move or communicate with the outside world and the only way to get help is to hope someone grabs the ring so he can control them. Pit was very lucky that Magnus didn't leave the ring behind.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Downplayed. Pit is quite cocky and is a bit of a showoff, but he's a pretty friendly guy and does not view anyone as beneath him.
* ATragedyOfImpulsiveness: Pit's HotBlooded nature can make him quite reckless at times. See NiceJobBreakingItHero.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Is the Captain of Palutena's Guard and the strongest soldier in her army, embarking on many perilous missions by himself.
* BadassAdorable: He's a cute, {{Adorkable}} angel with the mindset and body of a teenager. That said, he is anything but harmless.
* BadassBoast:
** His rally cries are meant to be this, but they don't really impress anyone. However, he can give some pretty good ones such as the one to Medusa and Hades. Special mention, however, goes to Chapter 21, where he and Dark Pit pull a perfectly sychronized BadassBoast by simply FinishingEachOthersSentences.
--> '''Pit:''' Filth of the land, hear our words!\\
'''Dark Pit:''' And see our actions!\\
'''Pit:''' I am Pit! Servant of the Goddess of Light!\\
'''Dark Pit:''' And I am Dark Pit! Servant to none other but myself!\\
'''Both:''' ''Together we will rain death upon you!''\\
'''Dark Pit:''' So anyone who wants to die, step right up!\\
'''Pit:''' And anyone who doesn't want to die, too bad!\\
'''Both:''' ''Aww yeah!''
** There's also the one he gives to Hades during their final battle, right before he vaporizes him with the Great Sacred Treasure's Final Strike.
-->'''Pit''': I fight for all creatures living and breathing! I fight for all departed souls still hanging in limbo! But most of all, I fight for Lady Palutena, the Goddess of Light! And it's in all their names that I will crush you, Lord of the Underworld! I won't let you descerate another soul!
* BadassInCharge: Of the Centurions.
* BadassNormal: Pit has no actual superpowers of his own. All of the powers he uses in the game are granted to him by Palutena or Viridi. Does it diminish his ability to take on powerful gods and towering monsters? You wish.
* BashBrothers: With
Centurions, Dark Pit, eventually.
* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: Though it's never explained if he can actually breathe while in space. It's entirely possible that Palutena's magic helps him. It should be noted, however, that he cannot breathe underwater as he was very adverse about holding his breath during Chapter 7.
* BattleCry: Pit loves doing this to look cool in front of his opponents. His AR description even says he practices to make them cool. These end up parodied most of the time as they rarely impress or intimidate anyone. Particularly in Chapter 23 where Pit attempts to do the rally cry he and Dark Pit did in chapter 21 by himself only to fail miserably. Hades doesn't miss a beat in Lampshading it.
-->'''Hades:''' My innards have ''so'' longed to hear your battle cry. How could you forget the words?
-->'''Pit:''' I didn't have time to rehearse! I've been busy fighting evil, okay?!
* BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame: A fun trick players can do is have Pit beat a boss with the matching weapon. (Beat Twinbellows with the Twinbellows Cannon, Gaol with the Gaol Blade, Hewdraw with the Hewdraw Club, etc.)
* BerserkButton: Has a few good ones that you should never press.
** Bringing up or mocking why he can't fly is a touchy subject.
** Also, don't make fun of Palutena, don't insult Palutena and definitely don't '''harm''' Palutena in his presence as his reactions range from shock to a very understandably all out rage. When Hades makes jokes or unhappy comments regarding Palutena, Pit understandably goes mad. It's better shown when Hades comments that Pit may have to kill his Goddess in the Chaos Kin Arc and Pit calmly yet in a rather scary tone tells Hades to shut up. Later on when he's performing the trials to obtain the Great Sacred Treasure, Dyntos puts Palutena to sleep and pits a copy of her against Pit. Pit suffice to say is not pleased at all and ends up calling Dyntos out for this act. Thankfully his concern about this copy being the real comes to an end when the copy shows 'her' real face resulting in Pit being happy that he chose to attack. His victory taunt also shows how unimpressed he is with Dyntos for making a copy of Palutena, Dyntos was probably just amused. Upon learning from Viridi that the Chaos Kin was controlling Palutena, Pit becomes enraged.
-->'''Pit:''' Take that you fake![[note]]His victory taunt upon defeating Pseudo-Palutena.[[/note]]
-->'''Pit:''' Where do you think '''YOU'RE''' going?![[note]]During the aerial section and upon finding the real Chaos Kin, Pit becomes very angry when he sees it flee.[[/note]]
-->'''Pit:''' [[YouMonster You're going to pay]] [[ThisIsUnforgivable for what you've done Chaos Kin!]][[note]]Pit's TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to the Chaos Kin.[[/note]]
** Lastly, don't threaten humanity at all, later on Pit also react the same way if nature is threatened. Medusa, Viridi, Chaos Kin then Hades all learn this the hard way when they each get their turn to be punished. If he's pressed to it, Pit will make you pay for your actions and you'll come to regret it at some point.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's a friendly little angel, quick to wisecrack and joke and is one of the nicest guys in the game, but if he's given a reason he can and he ''will'' kick your ass, no matter who you are. And damn if he doesn't make it look awesome.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Pit is probably the biggest ButtMonkey in the entire series, but that does not stop him from being one of the best soldiers in Palutena's Army.
* {{BFG}}:
Magnus, Zeus, Nurse, Don, Poseidon, Pyrrhon, The Chariot Master, Dyntos, The Little Girl, The Dog, The Great Sacred Treasure's gun, which he uses to finish of Treasure[[/note]]
* [[Characters/KidIcarusAntagonists Antagonists]][[note]]Medusa,
Hades, dwarfs his body.
* BifurcatedWeapon: His bow.
* BigEater: Pit eats a lot of food... as long as it isn't eggplants, tempuras or vegetables in general.
* BishieSparkle: Pit sparkles when he does his little speech to Pandora before their battle in ''Uprising''.
* BlackAndWhiteMorality: Notably the only character in the series who runs on this in contrast to everyone else's BlackAndGreyMorality.
* BodyguardingABadass:
** His job as Captain of the Guard is to protect Palutena despite the fact that she's a goddess and is more than capable of taking care of herself. Best exemplified in Palutena's reveal trailer for ''Smash 4''.
** It's more justified in ''Uprising'' since Pit is on of the three strongest characters in the series[[labelnote:*]]Hades exceeds him without the Great Sacred Treasure and Dyntos exceeds them both. Along with everything else in the series, apparently.[[/labelnote]] and Palutena is a GlassCannon at best. Brought to horrifying clarity during the Chaos Kin battle, where Pit can kill Palutena '''by accident''' because she was between him and the Chaos Kin.
* BodyHorror: When Pit is turned into an eggplant or tempura it comes off as this given that he only has legs and can't really fight back. To make matters worse, he can be ''eaten alive'' if he's a tempura, which is one of the only instant KO's' in the game. And then Chapter 18 has him stuck in a ring.
* BodySurf: In Chapter 18, Pit goes from a little girl, to a dog, to Magnus before he manages to reunite with his own body.
* BoisterousBruiser: For the most part, Pit is very confident in his combat abilities and is not easily intimidated in battle.
* BookDumb: "[[NeverLearnedToRead I never learned to reeeead!]]"
* BowAndSwordInAccord: His Bow can separate into twin blades for melee combat, effectively combining the two tropes into one.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Pit constantly lampshades tropes and cliches about the game and its bosses, like how the title "Dark Lord" is overused and so on.
* BreakTheCutie:
** [[WhamEpisode Chapter 18.]] Pit's entire faith in Angel Land and fighting for justice is destroyed in a blink of an eye, the people that considered him Captain are now attacking him, and the BrainwashedAndCrazy Palutena calls him a "puppet" and says she doesn't want to deal with him anymore. He gets over it (for the most part) in the next chapter, but it doesn't change the fact that those words will probably stick with him for a long time.
** It gets worse. Chapter 19, Hades and Viridi constantly lay the smack down of insults on him, and without Palutena to support him, Pit progressively gets quieter with the chapter (but he does get louder when he's asking Viridi if he's at the top of the tower yet). And then comes Chapter 20, where some of his insecurities are let loose as Palutena continues to berate him for being useless and naive. When he finally saves her from the Chaos Kin, though, he has to watch as her soul is ripped out of her and she turns to stone. And when he spends chapter 21 trying to get it back and succeeds with the help of Dark Pit, the Chaos Kin wanted to make sure Pit suffered and tried to take Dark Pit down with him. Pit's response is to dive in and save him, causing his wings to burn up in the process. And even though chapter 23 treats Pit's SanitySlippage moment lightly, given what happened in the previous chapters, it's not hard to think he actually lost it.
* BrokenAngel: His wings burn up in Chapter 21, when he saves Dark Pit from Chaos Kin.
* BuffySpeak: "That sounds hurty."
* BunnyEarsLawyer: A very capable fighter and leader despite his childish ways.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: A heroic example. When confronting Thanatos in Chapter 7, the God of Death is insulted that Pit doesn't remember him, causing the angel to quip that he's faced so many enemies that he can't remember them all.
-->'''Pit:''' Sorry. There's just so many foes and only one of me.
* ButtMonkey: He's this in Uprising where it's quite difficult to find a character that ''doesn't'' make some sort of comment at Pit's expense. Also Lampshaded.
-->'''Pit''': "What is this, "Everybody Pick On Pit" day!?"
* CallOfTheWildBlueYonder: Pit wishes he can fly by himself, instead of having to use the Power of Flight or the Pegasus Wings.
* CarFu: Is more than willing to run over enemies in his [[CoolCar Exo-Tank]].
* CatchPhrase:
** "I'm finished!", [[LampshadeHanging at least according to Palutena]]:
--> '''Palutena''': "Listen to that swagger, you're toughened up nicely. Remember when you'd be like "I'm finished!" all the time?
--> '''Pit''': "I... still say that... a lot..."
** Averted in ''Of Myths and Monsters'' where you just turn into a ghost with a halo and float away.
** Brought back in ''Uprising'''s death screen, complete with the original 8-Bit text and music.
** He also says "Prepare to meet the light" a number of times in Uprising.
* CaptainObvious:
--> '''Pit''': Hey, look! It's an Exo-Tank!
--> '''Hades''': Hey, look! Who cares?
* TheChewToy: Much of the humor in ''Uprising'' comes at his expense.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Pit strives to save everyone he can, no matter whether they are enemy or ally, even if it's to a personal cost to himself. In Chapter 21, he didn't hesitate to save Dark Pit and begged Viridi to activate the Power of Flight knowing full well this would kill him.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Whenever Pit is talking to himself, he comes up with the strangest things imaginable. He even impersonates Palutena and Viridi at one point.
* ColonelBadass: There are multiple references in the game that Pit is one of the higher-ups in Palutena's army. He also notes during the Chaos Kin arc, when replacement MissionControl Viridi acts like he's enlisted under her and commands him to clean latrines, that he's a commissioned officer. Possibly a FourStarBadass instead; it's not shown if anyone besides Palutena outranks Pit.
* CombatPragmatist: While not to Dark Pit's extent, some of the Powers Palutena grants him (I.E. Playing Dead and Vanish) has Pit using some underhanded tactics.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: He's prone to this at times.
* CoolCrown: Wears a Laurel Crown in ''Of Myths and Monsters'', ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'', and ''Uprising''.
* CosmicPlaything: A more direct example than most, as the [[JerkassGods forces that be]] ''really are'' ribbing on him mercilessly.
* CovertPervert:
** If this conversation in ''Uprising'' is any indication.
--> '''Palutena:''' That's not all I can see, Pit. I can also see what's in your heart.\\
'''Pit:''' Oh... heh heh. That's really... something...\\
'''Palutena:''' So you'd better not be thinking about anything... ''naughty''.\\
'''Pit:''' What?! How did you--\\
'''Palutena:''' Just kidding! Seriously, reading hearts through laurel crowns?\\
'''Pit:''' [[ImplausibleDeniability I know... I was... also kidding...]]
** The Japanese version has Pit admitting that he is a pervert... just a little bit.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: While he does have plenty of harebrained moments and is a genuine goofball besides, Pit is still much more competent than he lets on.
* DeadpanSnarker: Surprisingly one of the least snarky characters [[WorldOfSnark compared to everyone else]], but he still has his moments.
* DeathIsCheap: He and all of Palutena's army are revived when they die. Unlike the Centurions, Pit is not weak because he has a motivation to toughen up: protect Lady Palutena.
* {{Determinator}}: Pit ''never'' gives up. Not even when the world is in ruins, Palutena has become BrainwashedAndCrazy, and he's been trapped in a ring for three years. Once Pit sets his sight on a mission that he can't afford to give up on, he'll plow through anything that tries to slow him down, best example is during the Chaos Kin Arc when he's in the Chaos Vortex. He flies through the place searching for the Chaos Kin and once Viridi helps him find the real one, he becomes incredibly determined to defeat it even when his Power of Flight is running low on time. Then once on land, he completely tells Viridi that if the only way to defeat the Chaos Kin and save Palutena's soul is to endure several tedious battles that he would outlast all the enemies hurled at him. He does just that for at least half of the time until [[TheCavalry Dark Pit]] shows up to assist. Sure you can slow him down for some time using methods that may seem pretty sound, but Pit will eventually reach you while he's making his way to where you are located and take you out once he finds you.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: It's his job description!
* TheDitz: Downplayed and Subverted. Pit's [[{{CloudcuckooLander}} kooky]], can't read, and [[HotBlooded rushes into fights]], but he's also incredibly experienced in combat and as shown in Chapter 23, he's perfectly capable of coming up with tactics on his own.
* DoesNotLikeSpam: Despite his BigEater tendencies, he's shown to ''hate'' vegetables, especially eggplants. This stems from his unpleasant encounters with the Eggplant Wizards.
* DualWielding: His Bow, Claw, and Orbitar weapons all come in pairs.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Unless you count the powers Palutena grants him, he has no superpowers of his own.
* EmptyEyes: In Chapter 18 of ''Uprising'', Pit's body is shown to have these without his soul to guide it.
* EmptyShell: Without his soul, Pit's body is a mindless husk with no emotions or willpower of its own. The Chaos Kin takes advantage of this after imprisoning Pit's soul in a ring, commanding it to indiscriminately kill humans and monsters alike.
* {{Expy}}: Of the two Greek mythology heroes: Icarus and Perseus. With the former, while not a hero, Icarus is notorious for flying too close to the sun and getting his wings burned in the process, leading to his death. This is Pit's fate at the end of Of Myths and Monsters, as well as happening twice in Uprising (chapter 17 and 22). For the latter, the entire story of Perseus from saving his mother figure by slaying Medusa with the help of the Goddess of Wisdom, Athena, with one of the weapons being a shield to protect yourself from Medusa's stare in the original game.
* ExtremeOmnivore: According to Palutena, this angel will eat anything - especially the unusual stuff and "questionable things off the ground".
-->'''Pit:''' [[BreakingtheFourthWall "FLOOR ICE CREAM GIVES YOU HEALTH!"]]
* FamilyUnfriendlyViolence: A victim of this at the end of Chapter 21; his wings are horribly burned, to the extent that the ''bones'' are visible.
* FanDisservice: He gets a ShirtlessScene in Chapter 21...because his tunic is burnt up along with his wings, and his wings being burnt have left him critically ill. It flips back into {{Fanservice}} in the next chapter when he's revived via the Rewind Spring, where he shows off quite a muscular physique for someone who looks so young.
* FinishingEachOthersSentences: Leads to Pit and Dark Pit finishing a motto together in Chapter 21.
* {{Foil}}: For two characters.
** To Magnus. Both are skilled, veteran warriors, but their methods are as different as night and day. Pit is the HotBlooded, "Shoot-first-don't-bother-with-the-questions" guy who charges in guns ablazing while Magnus is the more tactical one, always planning his moves out. This is best shown in Ch 18 where Magnus actually advises Pit on how to proceed.
** To Dark Pit. The two are on opposite ends of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism. Pit is the optimistic idealist who believes in the good of everyone, human and gods alike. Dark Pit, however, is fully aware that humans are bad and the gods are just as worse. Also, while Pit is extremely loyal to Palutena, Dark Pit holds no allegiance to anyone but himself.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Whilst Dyntos is discussing how he added more monsters than necessary to Palutena at the end of Chapter 24, Pit is flying the Great Sacred Treasure in the background... only to then crash on the ground.
* GoMadFromTheIsolation: Starts to show shades of this in chapter 23. He even points out that he needs to escape before he really does lose it.
* GoodIsNotSoft: Pit's usually the NiceGuy most of the time, but if Palutena gives the order to fight, ''he's not holding back''.
* HandicappedBadass: He's an angel who cannot fly. It doesn't slow him down in the slightest.
* TheHero: The brave and idealistic angel beating down the forces of evil.
* {{Heroic RROD}}: He nearly dies saving Dark Pit from Chaos Kin, and manages to do so... at the cost of Pit's wings burning up when he catches him. He's out of commission for Chapter 22 as a result.
* HeroicResolve: In spades. If there's even a ''small'' chance he can save someone, he'll find a way.
* HoldingBothSidesOfTheConversation: His doing this in Chapter 23 makes it very clear that the Gods constant deriding of him is having a negative effect, because during this time when he's inside Hades and thus cut off from them, he subs ''himself'' in for them because of how used he is to their banter. His Viridi impersonation is an obvious mockery, but his Palutena impersonation is disturbingly accurate in wording.
* HotBlooded: In one particular moment Magnus gives him advice on how to proceed tactically, while Pit in his hot blooded glory just goes in guns blazing (it's almost [[LampshadeHanging Lampshading]] the nature of the game).
* HypercompetentSidekick: He's essentially Palutena's NumberTwo with all that it entails and he's very, very good at his job despite his goofy and dorky personality.
* HypocriticalHumor: In a random conversation that may occur in chapters 19 and 20 if Pit is using a cannon, he says that humans cannot be trusted with grenade launchers because they're go around shooting everything. The irony is not lost on Viridi.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Even Palutena herself is unable to sway his sense of righteousness, and the physical manifestation of his "dark side" is neutral at worst.
* InfinityPlusOneSword: The Great Sacred Treasure, used in the final battle against Hades. It was previously the Three Sacred Treasures, but they have been rendered obsolete as Pit no longer needs them to defeat Medusa, and they prove completely ineffective against Hades.
* InfinityMinusOneSword: The Three Sacred Treasures are this as of ''Uprising'' where they are displaced by the Great Sacred Treasure.
* InnocentBlueEyes: Has blue eyes and is the most alturistic character in the game.
* InTheNameOfTheMoon: Pit does this a whole lot in complete adoration to all that is Palutena and light beating darkness, and even his special idol description says that he practiced to make one. Parodied a few times as well. Special mention goes to his speech with Pandora which features an over-the-top sequence that even has him sweep his hair with BishieSparkle.
--> '''Pit''': Pandora! Underling of Medusa floating before me! It's time for you to atone for your crimes! I am Pit, servant of the Goddess of Light! And [[PunctuatedForEmphasis You! Are! History!]]\\
'''Palutena''': *Deadpan* What was that all about?
** He gets a surprisingly serious one right before fighting Medusa in Chapter 9, with poses specifically designed to showcase the Three Sacred Treasures (although it looks a bit daft if you choose not to wear them).
--> '''Pit:''' Listen well, all you demons of the Underworld! In the name of the Goddess Palutena, defender of all that is good! Those who reside in darknesss will be made to face the light!
* IronicName: Although it probably comes from the -pid part of Cupid, it's still kinda funny that the winged guy is named 'hole in the ground', which Viridi takes note of.
* JackOfAllStats: In gameplay. He's fast, but not that fast. He's strong, but not that strong. His strength lies solely in the weapon and the player's skill.
* TheJuggernaut: The primary playable version of this trope, although it's mostly shown in Chapters 19-21 and 23-Final. This trope comes into play when Pit becomes dead serious to accomplish his objective and it turns him into a serious LightningBruiser. It's more present in his motivation and dialogue than his in-game durability and power unlike the other beings who actually prove this trope.
* {{Keet}}: He has energy to spare. This trait is especially noticeable when he's around Magnus.
* KidHero: Played with. Pit has the appearance of a young teenager, and has the personality to match, but he's older than he appears.
* KirkSummation:
** To Medusa in chapter 9 after he tells her to [[ShutUpHannibal shut up.]] Also doubles as TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.
--> '''Pit:''' You shut your mouth, Medusa! Lady Palutena is ''nothing'' like you! Who turns people to stone? Who poisons rivers? Who reduces cities to rubble? And who is leading the Underworld invasion of the land and heavens?! ''Not'' Lady Palutena! ''You're'' the one responsible for all this, Medusa!
** He also gives a good one to Hades, who for the entire game up to that point had been constantly riffing on Pit's seeming IdiotHero nature. Bear in mind, this happens during a point where Pit is completely at Hades' mercy and cut off from every ally he has (even Palutena) and where Hades had insulted his intelligence yet again merely seconds beforehand.
--> '''Pit:''' We're all responsible for maintaining a certain order in the universe. As lord of the Underworld, you know this better than anyone. But your greed has thrown everything out of order. You've overstepped your bounds by exploiting and desecrating souls. And you've disrupted the balance between the earth, the heavens, and the Underworld.
* KleptomaniacHero: Played with:
--> '''Pit''': Yeah! A treasure box!\\
'''Magnus''': That's clearly a trap. Think about it. Who would leave treasure just lying about outside?\\
'''Pit (at player's behest):''' ''*Opens treasure box. Monsters appear.*''\\
'''Magnus''': What is wrong with you?\\
'''Pit''': If there's a treasure box, I open it! I can't help it!\\
'''Magnus''': OK, we'll see how long you'll survive with that strategy!
* KnightInShiningArmor: Considering he's a literal angel and a trained warrior, it's to be expected.
* LadyAndKnight: The Knight to Palutena's Lady.
* LetsGetDangerous: At the beginning of Chapter 21, instead of waiting for the door to open, he busts the door down.
-->Pit: Hold on, Lady Palutena! I'm coming for you!
* LightIsGood: An angel with white clothing who is a servant of the Goddess of Light and TheHero of the series.
* LimitBreak: Each of Pit's weapons has a special attack that can be used during air battles.
* LiteralMinded: At times, such as this exchange in Chapter 2:
-->'''Magnus''': So, you're here for a slice of the pie, too?\\
'''Pit''': Huh? Pie? Where?
* LuminescentBlush: He gets flustered very easily and does this as a result, as shown when Phosphora teases him. This is Lampshaded by Palutena.
-->'''Palutena:''' [[ButtMonkey He embarrasses easily.]]
* MadeOfIron: Pit can take quite a beating for someone of his size. Over the course of the game, he's been thrown around, beaten up, burned, electrocuted, ''eaten,'' having fallen from the sky on multiple occasions, nearly got his ''wings burned off and near death'' and comes out no worse for wear. Ch. 21 in particular had him engaging the Chaos Kin in a dogfight, literally fighting his way through ''13 waves of replicated enemies from'' '''''every''''' ''faction'', fighting the Chaos Kin ''again'' on foot and showing no signs of tiring.
* MindControlEyes: His soulless body in Chapter 18.
* MistressAndServantBoy: In his relationship with Palutena, though Pit is the Captain of the Guard.
* MixAndMatchWeapon: All of his weapons from ''Brawl'' onward do double duty as both melee and ranged, even swords, bows, and clubs.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone:
** His reaction after defeating
Twinbellows, Hewdraw, T(h)anatos, Pandora, Dark Lord Gaol, where it's revealed that [[SamusIsAGirl he's actually a she and she's actually a human.]] Palutena thankfully cheers him up by telling him that Gaol is still alive.
** Takes a much more serious tone in Chapter 19 when he kills the Chariot Master. Both he and Viridi felt his death was completely pointless and regret it had to come to that.
* MoralityPet:
** For Viridi.
The only explanation given for why she helps him and never sees any consequences for her actions is that she's developed a soft spot for him.
** It's also implied his innocence and trust makes him one for even Palutena herself somewhat, which is likely why he was sealed in the ring when she gets possessed.
* MultiMeleeMaster: In ''Uprising'', most of his clubs are used for melee attacks, and he also goes hand-to-hand with claws, wields blades, and of course has his trusty bows which split into twin swords.
* NeverLearnedToRead: By his own admission, in the English localization. In the Japanese version, he instead says that he wanted to die with a full belly.
* NiceGuy: Kind, compassionate, and very easygoing.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Nice job Pit, you just killed the Phoenix. Now Hades can set his master plan in action. And then you destroyed the Lunar Sanctum. Have fun dealing with the EldritchAbomination you unleashed. Though to be fair, Pit had no choice but to kill the Phoenix, as [[XanatosGambit doing nothing would allow the Phoenix to attack humanity.]] Also, [[PoorCommunicationKills Arlon never explained what the Lunar Sanctum's purpose was]], so Pit couldn't know what would happen.
* NumberTwo: To Palutena.
* OhCrap: Given the entire plot in the game, Pit gets a good amount of moments where his lines directly come from him realizing how bad his situation is or if he thinks that something bad will happen. In the former, it's usually when the enemies keep swarming him, for the latter, his reaction comes from entering or being in certain areas for some time. Then there are times where he plays this trope for the laughs although to him it may not originally be very funny.
-->'''Pit:''' Uh-oh...[[note]]This is very close to [[ThisIsGonnaSuck 'you just didn't say that just now, did you!?']] when Phosphora calls Palutena 'ma'am' which is one of the latter's [[BerserkButton berserk buttons]].[[/note]]

-->'''Pit:''' [[OhCrap So...many...enemies...]]

* OlderThanTheyLook: In the first game he's a trained soldier, yet in ''Uprising'', which takes place a full [[RealitySubtext 25 years later]], he's still practically a teenager. [[WordOfGod Sakurai]] even tweeted Pit's body is that of a 13 year old.
* OneManArmy: While Medusa, Hades, and Viridi send in hordes of monsters to attack, Palutena just sends in Pit. She ''does'' have plenty of Centurions, but they're all so weak that Pit is basically the main muscle of her army. He's just that good. Lampshaded by Magnus in Chapter 18.
--> '''Magnus''': You're the only member of Palutena's Army that can pull his own weight. Don't get me started on the Centurions. Sure, they're a ton of them, but they're all pretty flimsy.
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: Resembles a classic winged angel, but he can't fly on his own. Some of his weaponry also stray away from the norm for angels.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: A heroic and lighter example than most but still prevalent. Any place Pit enters will inevitably be destroyed. Lampshaded by Viridi in chapter 12.
--> '''Viridi''': This coming from the flying munitions depot himself? You're as destructive as a hundred Reset Bombs!
* PintsizedPowerhouse: He's the same size as a regularly human, but he can take down creatures that reach colossal sizes.
* PowerDyesYourHair: In the first game Pit's hair starts off light brown, becomes green at 2 strength, purple at 3, dark brown at 4, and blue at 5. In the best ending, his hair goes back to being light brown in his adult form, and it stays that colour regardless of strength in every other game.
* RainOfArrows:
Great Reaper, The Bow's special attack.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red Oni to anyone's Blue Oni most of the time, particularly Dark Pit and Magnus. Though he dipped into Blue Oni territory during ''Uprising'''s Chapter 20, [[TranquilFury in which he was unusually serious.]]
* ReverseGrip: When separating his bow into twin blades, he tends to hold one in this way.
* RoaringRampageOfRescue: The entire description of his actions in Chapter 20 and the first part of his reasons in the following chapter. This combined with his nearly unrivaled [[{{Determinator}} willpower]] makes it almost impossible to slow him down at all. So far only the Chaos Kin was able to slow him down during his rescue mission thanks to throwing 13 waves of enemies at him without slowing down and later on at Dark Pit as well but that barely slows either of them down.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Woe to anyone who gets the sheer [[TranquilFury devotion]] and [[UnstoppableRage attention]] by pressing making him go [[BerserkButton ballistic]]. This combined with his completely monstrous [[{{Determinator}} willpower]] results in him being able to endure and come out as the victor in many battles that he normally wouldn't be able to handle alone. Although Pit's demonstration of this trope is more of a version of TranquilFury, he uses this trope so effectively when he sets his sight on an enemy he can't afford to lose to. This trope is the second half of his line of reason in Chapter 21, resulting in him trashing at least 7-8 waves of enemies by himself before losing his momentum just because he's that '''ticked off''' at the Chaos Kin. In his final battle against Hades, Pit performs this trope to the extreme by literally taking on Hades in order to kill the Underworld Ruler for his massacre of innocent lives and causing many unneeded wars.
* SanitySlippage: Played with and [[DefiedTrope defied]]. During Chapter 23, Pit starts talking to himself and acts like he is on the verge of losing his mind... but, at the end of his rant, he lampshades how he needs to get out of Hades before he REALLY goes crazy.
* SarcasmBlind: Which is ironic, considering he has his own DeadpanSnarker moments.
* ScrewYourself: There are quite a few fans who think he'd make a cute couple with his clone, Dark Pit.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Sensitive Guy to Magnus' Manly Man.
* ShipTease: With Viridi in Chapter 16 and with Phosphora in Ch 14.
* ShirtlessScene: [[WrongGenreSavvy No, it's not related to his love for hot springs]]. Rather, it's when his wings burn off when rescuing Dark Pit from the Chaos Kin.
* ShockAndAwe: The Blade's special attack calls down lightning bolts.
* ShutUpHannibal:
** To Medusa in Chapter 9, followed by a KirkSummation.
** Also to Hades in Chapter 23, though only just barely.
* SillyRabbitCynicismIsForLosers: He has a song that goes "you gotta stay upbeat, upbeat, upbeat. Or you're gonna be dead meat, dead meat, dead meat". Dark Pit, naturally, thinks it's annoying.
* SkilledButNaive: He's a skilled and powerful fighter, but he's somewhat dim, and he fully believes in BlackAndWhiteMorality.
* SmarterThanYouLook: Despite being a HotBlooded CloudCuckoolander and the fact that he NeverLearnedToRead, Pit is actually quite cunning and much smarter than people give him credit for when he puts his mind to it.
* TheStraightAndArrowPath: As expected from an archer.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: The Wise Guy to anyone's Straight Man, especially Dark Pit and Magnus.
* SubmissiveBadass: In his relationship to Palutena. He's more than capable of doing things on his own, but he has enough respect to refer to her for advice.
* SuperSentaiStance: He does one when he first fights Medusa in Uprising, [[SoBadItsGood and it]] is awesome.
* SwordAndSorcerer: The Sword to Palutena's sorcerer. Pit is the main weaponmaster of the game while Palutena relies on light magic.
* TemptingFate: This exchange between him and Palutena at the end of Ch 13, three years before everything goes to hell in a handbasket.
-->'''Palutena:''' But what's that thing breaking free?
-->'''Pit:''' Oh, I'm sure it's nothing.
* ToHellAndBack: As mentioned above, his job takes him all over the world. From Skyworld, to the Overworld, to the Underworld, to outer space, and even different dimensions.
* TooMuchInformation:
** Says the acronym when Arlon mentions his... loins.
-->'''Pit''': TMI! Nobody wants to hear about your loins!
** Magnus seems to have the same reaction when Pit mentions his "sacred buns".
* TookALevelInBadass: Shown if you clear Chapter 9 without using the three treasures. In the first one, Pit could only take down Medusa with the three sacred treasures. In Uprising, he can take her down without them.
* TranquilFury: Only demonstrates this once and that's in chapter 20 when Hades mockingly presents the very real possibility that he may have to kill the possessed Palutena. His response is to calmly, bluntly tell Hades to go home... or in other words, to ''go to Hell.''
* TwentyFourHourArmor: He tells Magnus he ''never'' takes off his uniform. Even while bathing. Ew. Apparently, it saves on laundry!
* TwinTelepathy: During certain portions of the game, he and Dark Pit seem to be able to connect at certain points. Viridi even comments on it.
* UndyingLoyalty:
** For Palutena. He even gives an awesome ShutUpHannibal to Medusa when she tries to give Palutena TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.
** Even when Palutena was BrainwashedAndCrazy, he would not give up on her, not even when forced to fight her. Viridi lampshades his dedication.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: While Pit doesn't merit ''all'' the blame, him destroying the Lunar Sanctum did not end well for anyone involved. See NiceJobBreakingItHero.
* VSign: After defeating Hades, in ''Uprising''.
-->''Victory!''
* WeaponOfChoice: Nine different classes.
** CoolSword: Blades are [[JackOfAllStats well-balanced with melee and ranged shots]].
** SimpleStaff: Staves have [[SniperRifle excellent range]], but [[CripplingOverspecialization are less-than-impressive at close range]].
** WolverineClaws: Claws are [[FragileSpeedster fast, but rely on rapid-fire and quick combos to deal damage]].
** TheStraightAndArrowPath: Bows have the best homing capabilities and [[BifurcatedWeapon split into two blades]] for melee. The Palutena Bow has become his signature weapon outside of ''Uprising''.
** PowerTattoo: Palms don't slow Pit down, but [[DeathOfAThousandCuts don't exactly have the best damage output]].
** CarryABigStick: Clubs [[MightyGlacier deal massive damage, but are hard to lug around]] and [[CripplingOverspecialization have no continuous fire]].
** {{BFG}}: Cannons fire [[StuffBlowingUp explosive charged shots]], but don't have the best range.
** AttackDrones: Orbitars hover at Pit's sides, trading [[MoreDakka damage output for rate of fire]].
** PowerFist: Arms have [[CloseRangeCombatant powerful melee attacks]], but subpar range.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: He won't hesitate to put the smackdown on Underworld monsters, the Forces of Nature, or the Aurum... but as soon as he discovers that Dark Lord Gaol was a human woman upon defeating her, he's absolutely horrified and has a MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment. Furthermore, when Viridi brushes off his objections to her genocidal hatred of humanity by accusing him of being the same way towards Underworld forces, Pit replies that it's ''not'' the same because unlike her, ''he's'' destroying evil ("It's totally different! Look it up.").
* WideEyedIdealist: Despite the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism in ''Uprising'', Pit is very optimistic and has high hopes in the human race, despite the game showing time and time again that the [[JerkAssGods Gods are Jerkasses]]. He is also fiercely loyal to Palutena and Angel Land, no matter what. The fact that this view is attacked when Palutena gets brainwashed does affect him, though even then he doesn't stray from what he believes in, even if it means beating some sense into Palutena herself.
* WingedHumanoid: He's an angel, so it's to be expected.
* WingsDoNothing:
** Played with. By default, Pit can't fly -- as a result, his wings are merely decorative and, at most, can slow his fall (''Of Myths and Monsters''). However, he can fly if he uses one of the Three Sacred Treasures or the Power of Flight. Also, in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games, he has temporary flight as his third jump.
** It's implied that they may contain his lifeforce, or at least that he can't live without them. When he burns his wings to the bone, it nearly kills him. Part of the reason Palutena wants to heal him so badly is certainly that he loved to fly and wanted nothing more than to fly on his own, but it seems like having burnt wings is quite literally killing him and the only way to save him is to restore his wings.
* WouldHitAGirl: When most of them are trying to kill you, it's pretty justified.
* YesMan: To [[UndyingLoyalty Palutena.]] Phosphora even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] it.

[[folder:Palutena, Goddess of Light]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/AyaHisakawa (JP), Creator/AliHillis (EN, ''Uprising''), Brandy Kopp (EN, ''Smash 4'')
!!!Debut: ''VideoGame/KidIcarus''
[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_palutena_uprising_8994.jpg]]

-->''"Despite the Underworld invasion, the people haven't given up hope!"''

The goddess of light and ruler of Skyworld, Palutena goes to great lengths to protect her people, and those who dwell on the surface lands below.

* {{Adorkable}}: She may be an elegant goddess, but Palutena has a lovable, trollish GenkiGirl personality and behaves similarly to many geek girls in RealLife. Taken UpToEleven in ''Palutena's Revolting Dinner'', where she's probably at her cutest!
* AndIMustScream: She suffered under the Chaos Kin's control for ''three years'', being unable to control her body while her soul was constantly under threat of being consumed.
* AttackDrones: Her boss battle has her summon two orbs of light that follow Pit around and fire lasers at him.
* BadassBookworm: Going hand in hand with her role as [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]], Palutena is the most knowledgeable god in the game.
* BadassInCharge: Of Skyworld and the Centurions.
* BadassInDistress: Throughout the course of the series she has a distressing (no pun intended) habit of being caught off-guard...
* BathtubScene: In the beginning of ''Palutena's Revolting Dinner, Pt. 2''.
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: The Goddess of Light, the BigGood of the game, and very beautiful.
* BerserkButton: ''Don't'' call her ma'am.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Palutena's one of the more pleasant Gods in the game for the most part (though she still has her [[GoodIsNotNice vices]].) However, as Hewdraw learned the hard way and as her BossFight shows [[labelnote:*]]not that [[PintsizedPowerhouse Pit]] doesn't still end up kicking her ass like he does everyone else's, though[[/labelnote]], if forced to take a more direct approach, she'll happily remind you why she's the Goddess of Light.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: She's more GenkiGirl than goddess, but she's far from harmless.
* BeyondTheImpossible: During ''Palutena's Revolting Dinner'', when she discovers that the Vegetable Monster is vulnerable to water, she uses her Power of Malestorm to create a storm ''indoors.''
* BigEater: Judging by her banter with Pit, during which she'll randomly talk about everything from the great meal they could make out of the Kraken to Phoenix eggs making wonderful omelets. Likely where Pit gets it from; Viridi has to snap the both of them out of ordering a pizza during the [[AlienInvasion Aurum invasion]] of all things.
* BigGood: The goddess of light and ruler of Skyworld.
* BluntMetaphorsTrauma: She insists she always gets those sayings correct, so maybe not.
* BossBanter: In ''Uprising'' with Pit, and when he's busy either Viridi or Hades. Especially shown in her boss fight, where most of her attacks are telegraphed by a specific phrase.
-->''"Time for a sacrifice!"''
-->''"This might sting!"''
-->''"Poor you!"''
-->''"Cover your eyes!"''
-->''"Fly away now!"''
-->''"Come out!"''
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: During the Chaos Kin arc in ''Uprising''. The catch is you have to beat her up without killing her or else you fail the mission.
* BreakoutCharacter: Since she got so many fans, she gets her own special and become a playable character in ''Smash''.
* ButtMonkey: "Palutena's Revolting Dinner" puts her in this position, getting hung upside-down, attacked by carrots, and having giant pumpkins explode in her face, all because she was distracted while adding a potion.
* CainAndAbel: The Abel to Medusa's Cain.
* CaptainObvious: Most of her dialogue revolves around her stating the obvious in the Japanese version instead of teasing Pit. Lampshaded by Viridi in Chapter 15.
-->'''Viridi:''' All hail the goddess of obvious.
* CharacterExaggeration: Palutena messes with Pit '''''far''''' more often in the English dub than the original Japanese.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Can come off as this due to her tendency to change the subject and bring up food at random times.
* CoolCrown: A golden crown with a red jewel embedded in it.
* CoolSword: Does not use one, but the Palutena Blade is modeled after her.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Green hair and green eyes.
* DeadpanSnarker: Not as often as most characters, but she has her moments.
* {{Expy}}: Of the Greek goddess of wisdom Athena, right down to her immature GoodIsNotNice attitude. She actually started out as an interpretation of Athena herself, under the name "Parthena" (an alternate rendering of "Athena".) Transliteration to Japanese further rendered this as "Palutena", which for whatever reason wasn't reverted back to the correct Latin spelling when ''Kid Icarus'' was brought overseas and thus stuck as her actual name globally. Combined with DivergentCharacterEvolution as her character was fleshed out and her primitive NES appearance developed into a unique design of its own, and she's much less a direct interpretation of Athena nowadays and more her own character, even if she remains her analog in-universe.
* ExtremeOmnivore:
** Similar to Pit, it's implied she'll eat anything. She even makes jokes about how the idea of Pit being turned to a crisp from the lightning might sound delicious, but that she would pull him out of the area where the lightning struck.
** It's also demonstrated in ''Palutena's Revolting Dinner'' where despite the fact that the carrots have been overdosed with her rejuvenation potion and are now ''sentient'', she ''still'' intends to eat them.
* FanservicePack: She's noticeably curvier in ''Smash 4'', though her design is otherwise unchanged from her ''Uprising'' appearance (itself a more youthful refinement of her initial ''Brawl'' redesign, which in turn was much more glamorous than her original look.) Each successive game seems to push her a little bit further into MsFanservice territory, despite not starting out as one.
* FantasticNuke: Her Palutena Glam Buster or the Sacred Goddess Clobberlaser which she uses to finish off Hewdraw.
* FashionableAsymmetry: Subtle, but there; she's only wearing a stocking on her left leg and her right leg wrap is VERY slightly different from her left leg wrap.
* FlunkyBoss: Her boss fight has her occasionally summon Centurion Knights to aid her.
* {{Foil}}:
** To Medusa. Both of them ruled Skyworld together, but the two are quite literally as different as night and day. Palutena is the benevolent Goddess of Light, Medusa is the vindictive Goddess of Darkness. Palutena has light powers to contrast Medusa's dark magic and her clothing is white to contrast Medusa's purple dress. Palutena cares deeply for humanity and wishes to protect it. Medusa despises humanity and wishes to see it destroyed.
** To Viridi. Both characters help Pit out during the game and both of them have similar powers, but their stances on humans are polar opposites of each other. Viridi believes that humans are inherently evil and destructive and incapable of change while Palutena is aware of their flaws, but believes that humans can grow and learn.
* TheGadfly: ''Uprising'' has her messing with Pit non-stop. Her pranks range from not warning Pit when she's going to speed his wings up to ''deliberately using him as bait to lure out one of the Hewdraw heads'' (again not surprising since she's based on Athena). Hell, there's a little comic for the post-game option of turning off all dialogue:
-->'''Pit:''' I'm in trouble here, Lady Palutena!\\
'''Palutena:''' ''([[DissonantSerenity serene smile]])'' '''You can do it, Pit.'''
* GenkiGirl: If her special anime short and her constant teasing with Pit are anything to go by, she's just a bit like this. Of course, this makes her look less heavenly than previously envisioned.
* GodIsFlawed: This is why she takes a strong stance on protecting humanity. She's fully aware of how flawed humanity can be, but also knows that gods can be just as bad, if not worse than humans and when they fight, humans are innocent bystanders caught in the crossfire.
* GodOfGood: She's the Goddess of Light who helps Pit protect humanity from evil. Though she is hinted to have a darker side to her.
* TheGodsMustBeLazy: Invoked: Magnus outright accuses her of "sleeping on the job" in Chapter 2, much to her annoyance.
* GoldAndWhiteAreDivine: Her outfit is predominately white and gold, and she is of course the goddess of light.
* GoodIsNotNice: According to the other Gods and Goddesses, Palutena isn't really the nicest of them all as Pit makes her out to be. Given that she is a [[TheGadfly Gadfly]] and some of her actions are questionable, it's not hard to see why everyone is wary of her. Though she's still much more pleasant than the other gods.
* GreenEyes: To match the green hair.
* HeroicWillpower: As pointed out by Viridi in Chapter 21, the fact that Palutena was able to resist having her soul devoured by the Chaos Kin proves she has incredible willpower.
* HerosMuse: Most of what keeps Pit going is his devotion to her. He even outright admits that the reason he fights is because of her. Whether this is an idealistic sort of hero worship or if he just has a crush on her is left largely to the viewer's imagination - there's evidence for either, or both.
* HotGoddess: Oh yes. Especially in ''Smash 4'', although she was already getting pretty cute as of Uprising.
* HumansAreFlawed: She's fully aware of the flaws of humanity, but at the same time, she's aware that gods can be just as bad, if not worse. She protects them because while humans may fight with each other a lot, when it comes to wars between gods, they're innocent bystanders.
* JerkassGods:
** Played for laughs.
-->'''Pit:''' But you would NEVER abuse your power, right?\\
'''Palutena:''' Of course I would! It's all part of the Goddess's job description.
** Most of the time, anyway. More and more hints at a darker side of this appear as the game goes on, such as when close to the initial Medusa battle and ''especially'' during the "Ring of Chaos" arc.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She enjoys making a ton of jokes at Pit's expense, but she does genuinely care about him.
* KingOfAllCosmos: She can certainly dip into this, and many other characters tend to point out when she screws up/teases too much/acts hypocritical. Her apotheosis of this is seen whenever she cooks.
* LadyAndKnight: The Lady to Pit's Knight.
* LargeHam: Well, more of a ''small'' ham when compared to [[WorldOfHam everyone else]], Pit included. Her attempts at it sound decidedly more forced than the rest, meaning you'll either be laughing or facepalming in response. Even when possessed by the Chaos Kin, she's still quite over the top, and very expressive in her boss battles.
* LethalChef: Figuratively and literally in ''Palutena's Revolting Dinner.'' Though nothing in the short actually suggests she's a bad chef. Just a little too easily distracted while handling powerful potions.
* LightEmUp: She ''is'' the Goddess of Light after all.
* LightIsGood: The Goddess of Light and the BigGood of the series.
* LightIsNotGood: When possessed by the Chaos Kin.
* LongRangeFighter: Prefers to keep her distance from opponents and fire energy blasts. However, her appearance in ''Smash 4'' shows she can definitely handle herself up close.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Has a mirror shield that she uses in battle.
* MaamShock: Dislikes it so, even if the lifespan of gods is implied to be eternal.
* MamaBear: Toward Pit If chapter 21 and 22 aren't evident enough. In Viridi's own words, she was willing to ''cheat death'' in order to save Pit in chapter 22.
* MindOverMatter: Chapter 18 shows she has powerful telekinesis, able to toss pieces of Skyworld itself at Pit. Carries over into ''Smash 4'' where some of her attacks have her telekinetically twirling her staff at opponents.
* MissionControl: Until Chapter 18, when she becomes BrainwashedAndCrazy, leaving Viridi to fill her position. Fortunately, it's not permanent.
* MistressAndServantBoy: In her relationship with Pit, though Pit is the Captain of the Guard.
* AMotherToHerMen: Even though she can and does revive the Centurions when they die, she still doesn't like to see them get hurt, so she rarely sends them to fight.
* MsFanservice: Increasingly. The [[http://i.imgur.com/5hfz2.jpg Bathtub Scene]] in ''Palutena's Revolting Dinner'' is a stand-out example. ''Smash 4'' heavily plays this up, with several MaleGaze shots during her newcomer trailer and even a ''pole-dance taunt'' in-game.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: After being saved from the Chaos Kin, the expression she has clearly says this. Especially when Pit nearly gives up his life for Dark Pit, burning his wings up in the process.
* MysteriousWaif: Interestingly, her rare AR card idol mentions that her history and motivations are little known. Even in ''Uprising'' she gets some questions that she doesn't answer truthfully.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: There is virtually ''nothing'' this girl can't pull out of her bag of tricks. It's basically Power of (''insert whatever power the plot needs here.'')
* NotSoAboveItAll: For a goddess who rules over a mystical land, she sure doesn't act like it, if ''Uprising'' onward is any indication. This is no surprise given that she's based on Athena.
* OpaqueNerdGlasses: She does this trope in one scene, but you're most likely going to miss them since you're busy blasting enemies away[[labelnote:*]][[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/palutenawithglassesbetter_3045.jpg If that's the case, here is a lovely photo of it]][[/labelnote]]. Alternatively, she does use them in two extra tutorials' artwork (if you bothered to watch the How To Play videos, that is).
* PhysicalGod: DistressBall aside, she's a very powerful goddess and had no qualms demonstrating it. Best shown in the Air Battle of Chapter 3 when Pit's fighting Hewdraw. If he takes too long to defeat him, Palutena will use her Sacred Goddess Clobberlaser (Or Palutena Glam Blaster), a ''giant column of light'', to ''oneshot'' it. She also showcases other godly powers throughout the game such as her ''sneeze causing a meteor to change course'' at one point during Chapter 13 or creating an opening through a large storm cloud to get to Phosphora's Thunder Cloud Temple in Chapter 14. Chapter 18 has her telekinetically tossing large pieces of Skyworld itself at Pit. Gets taken to its logical conclusion in Chapter 20, where she serves as the chapter's boss and if her dialogue to Pit in ''Smash 4'' is any indication, she may have only been using ''a fraction of her actual power''.
* PimpedOutDress: In the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games and ''Uprising''.
* PluckyComicRelief: During ''Palutena's Revolting Dinner''.
* RapunzelHair: Her hair reaches her knees.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: While her true age is unknown, she's obviously much older than she appears. She is young by goddess standards, though, as WordOfGod states she's 22 years old in human years. Lampshaded in the banter between her and Phosphora in Chapter 14.
-->'''Phosphora:''' You're right, I'm sorry. You're ''much'' too young to be called "ma'am".\\
'''Palutena:''' You know as well as I do the lifespan of gods. And how about ''you?'' What's ''your'' age?\\
'''Palutena and Phosphora:''' I'll tell you ''mine'' if you tell me ''yours!''
* RequisiteRoyalRegalia: Dresses quite elegantly as befits a goddess.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness:
** Dips into this when she's teasing Pit.
-->'''Palutena:''' The monster situation is quite clamant.
-->'''Pit:''' Is... that a good thing?
-->'''Palutena:''' You know. It's importunate, or unpropitious.
-->'''Pit:''' Are you still speaking English right now?
-->'''Palutena:''' I'm sorry Pit. I didn't mean to confuse you. Here, let me make this easy for you. Big monsters kill Pit! Grr!
-->'''Pit:''' Ah! That makes perfect sense! Thank you!
** And when Pit faces off against the Hewdraw head.
-->'''Palutena:''' Despite my winsomeness and equanimity, I do have a strong streak of rascality.
-->'''Pit:''' I don't even know what that means!
* ShesGotLegs: And loves to show them off, particularly in ''Smash 4'' during her taunts.
* ShipperOnDeck: An easy to miss moment shows her teasing that Viridi has a soft spot for Pit.
* ShowSomeLeg: She loves to show off her legs. Especially in ''Smash 4''
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: ''Palutena's Revolting Dinner'' has her enduring some very AmusingInjuries, and in ''Smash 4'', she's subject to the same punishment every other fighter is.
* TheSmartGirl: She's one of the smartest Goddesses out there, according to the others. And it shows: she has information on (almost) every single enemy, and she's very rational in comparison to the other Gods. Then again, she is based on Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom.
* StaffOfAuthority: Like the other goddesses, she has one too.
* StoryBreakerPower: She's shown to be strong enough to easily win the day if she did things herself. That said, she's happy playing MissionControl to our protagonist.
* SwordAndSorcerer: The Sorcerer to Pit's Sword.
* TheTease: Started becoming this as of ''Uprising'', and ''Smash 4'' takes it UpToEleven.
* TakenForGranite:
** In ''Of Myths and Monsters'' when Orcos kidnapped her at the end.
** Also during ''Uprising'', although she did it to herself as a precaution, as revealed by Petrified Palutena's idol.
* UnwittingPawn: After the Chaos Kin breaks out of the Lunar Sanctum, it possessed Palutena for three years and used her to wreak havoc on the human realm.
* WomanInWhite: To further cement her status as the Goddess of Light.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Palutena has long green hair to match the green eyes.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Centurion]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_727px-centurionuprising_8454.jpg]]
Palutena's ordinary soldiers. Unlike the other gods, she usually doesn't bother sending them out because they're rather weak and she doesn't like to see them get hurt, and Pit is already a strong enough military on his own.

* AbnormalAmmo: Centurion Strongarms will throw ''dumbbells'' at Pit for a ranged attack.
* BladeOnAStick: The weapon of choice for the Centurion Knights.
* DeathIsCheap: Through dialogue and their Idols, ''Uprising'' reveals that the Centurions can be revived. Pit believes this is why the Centurions are so weak. They have no incentive to get stronger if they'll just get revived.
* DubNameChange: "Ikaros" ("Ikaroses"?) in the Japanese version.
* DumbMuscle: The Strongarm Centurions are this. Even Pit says they're all brawn, including their brains.
* EliteMook: The Centurion Knights.
* EscortMission: Two Centurion Strongarms need to be defended by Pit in order for him to reach Pyrrhon during the second half of Chapter 17. If both are killed the first time, Palutena will summon two more, but if those are killed, its a NonStandardGameOver.
* {{Flight}}: Despite their tiny wings, they can fly.
* GagNose: All Centurions have large noses.
* {{Irony}}: They're more of a threat when they turn against their leader.
* JavelinThrower: Centurion Knights will toss their spears for a ranged attack.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Centurion Knights come equipped with shields. Unfortunately for them, they can easily be destroyed.
* OneHitPointWonder: In the first game, it only takes one hit to bring one down. ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' takes it a step further by having them expire as soon as they hit their target.
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: Their wings are on their heads rather than their backs.
* RedShirtArmy: These guys die so much that even Palutena jokes about it.
* TakenForGranite: In the original, Medusa turned them all into stone. In order to get them back, Pit had to use a hammer to free them.
* TopHeavyGuy: Centurion Strongarms.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Pit. Especially shown during the Aurum arc where despite knowing full well they would probably be killed, they still helped Pit defeat the Aurum.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: In ''Uprising'', the Strongarm Centurions are capable of powerbombing Pit and Magnus when they appear as enemies in Chapter 18 and 20, although they can't grab you while you're in the middle of a melee combo.

[[folder:Dark Pit[=/=]Pittoo]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/MinamiTakayama (JP), Antony del Rio (EN)
[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_darkpit_artnew_5487.png]]

-->''"Hey there, Pit-stain."''

A mysterious black-winged angel. He can soar through the skies without being granted the power of flight -- and seems determined to face Pit in battle.

* {{Adorkable}}: He's no different from his light counterpart.
* AntiHero: He started out as an opponent for Pit who was unaffiliated to the Underworld Army despite being created by Pandora's Mirror of Truth, only fighting Pit for his own reasons. But after realizing that [[CantLiveWithoutYou killing Pit means he'll die as well]], he warms up to Pit and becomes one of his most important allies.
* AnthropomorphicPersonification: Downplayed. He's supposed to be the embodiment of Pit's dark side, but Pit is so inherently kind and pure that the only negative traits he embodies are Pit's brashness, sharp tongue, arrogance, and thrill for battle.
* ArchEnemy: Seems to have found one in Pandora.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: As a manifestation of the darkness in Pit's heart, Dark Pit represents some of the traits Pit keeps to himself - such as a rather arrogant personality and his thrill for battle, which for Dark Pit goes beyond being HotBlooded into being an arrogant BloodKnight (Or at least at first)
* AscendedExtra: He was originally just a palette swap of Pit in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosBrawl''.
* BadassAdorable: Like his light counterpart, he can kick ass, as shown in chapter 9 when he literally falcon kicks the mini boss at the beginning when Pit can't do any damage with the Sacred Treasures. Ironically in the Japanese version, kicking the enemy actually resulted in him being injured instead of coming out with no scratches like in the English version.
* BadassBaritone: It's Pit's voice with a deeper inflection.
* BadassDriver: Dark Pit has a tendency to take the Lightning Chariot and ram it at his opponents when Pit needs help.
* BashBrothers: With Pit, eventually.
* BerserkButton: Do NOT call him "Pittoo!"
* BlackAndGreyMorality: Unlike Pit, who sees the world in black and white, he sees things in black and grey. While the Underworld Army are indeed the villains, the Gods they serve aren't any better. He even calls the Gods out on how they treat the world with their powers and place the blame on humans; Palutena even admits he's right.
* BloodKnight:
** Implied by the following exchange, though he gradually grows out of it after some CharacterDevelopment:
--> '''Palutena:''' Pittoo just isn't happy unless he's fighting someone.\\
'''Dark Pit:''' You say that like's a bad thing!
** And earlier in Chapter 9:
--> '''Pit:''' What are you doing here?
--> '''Dark Pit:''' The same thing you're doing, pummeling Underworld fools. I'm just way better at it.
--> '''Palutena:''' Maybe you also sensed that Pit could use your help.
--> '''Dark Pit:''' Don't make me laugh. Now enough talky talk! There's fighting to be done!
* BreakTheHaughty: According to Chapter 21, the reason for Dark Pit [[HeelFaceTurn switching sides]] is because he found out that he can't live without Pit. He won't go into details on what happened to him while Pit was in the ring, but it wasn't pleasant, to say the least. Pit [[HeroicSacrifice nearly dying]] for his sake is enough for him to fully switch sides and be Pit's ally.
* BroughtDownToNormal: After Chapter 22, he loses his power to fly independently as a result of Pandora's revival.
* BrutalHonesty: If the [[JerkassGods Gods are Jerkasses]], he'll say it to their faces.
* ButtMonkey: He may be the ShadowArchetype of Pit, but that doesn't make him immune to the abuse his alter ego suffers. Almost every character refers to him as [[EmbarrassingNickname Pittoo]], and Pit kicks his ass several times over the course of the game.
* CanonImmigrant: He made his debut in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosBrawl'' as a [[EvilCostumeSwitch simple color change for Pit]]. He was notable for changing Pit's color more dramatically than any of the other costumes, which really only changed his tunic color and slightly changed his wings' tint.
* CantLiveWithoutYou: Dark Pit's change of heart comes when he finds out killing Pit means he dies as well.
* CarFu: Rams the Lightning Chariot into the Chaos Vortex to prevent the Chaos Kin from escaping. He also rammed the chariot into Hades so he could grab Pit and escape with him.
* CloningBlues: It's not fun being seen by the world as nothing more than Pit's EvilKnockoff and getting slammed with a nickname that basically means "spit".
* CombatPragmatist: Whether it's against Pit or the Underworld army, he has a habit of attacking them when they least expect it.
* TheComicallySerious: Hades claims he has no sense of humor. In return, Dark Pit just ignores him, unlike Pit.
* CoolCrown: Wears one just like Pit.
* DarkerAndEdgier: He's far more serious and cynical than Pit and isn't one to play nice. But if the game isn't taking things seriously, [[ButtMonkey he also won't be taken seriously.]]
* DarkIsNotEvil: He's the AnthropomorphicPersonification of Pit's dark side, but is only neutral at his worst.
* DeadpanSnarker: Being the manifestation of Pit's more negative qualities, Dark Pit is a little more loose with the snark.
* DefrostingIceKing: After some CharacterDevelopment, he softens up to everyone around him, going as far as to save Pit from death.
* {{Determinator}}: He is determined to save Pit after the latter saved his life from Chaos Kin. At the cost of losing his ability to fly, he manages to bring Pit's wings back.
* DidntThinkThisThrough: After healing Pit, he decides to fly off rather than try and explain why he helped, forgetting that he'd lost the power of flight that he stole from Pandora.
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: In Ch 22, he calls out Palutena and Viridi for damaging the world with constant wars and blaming it on humans.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Literally. The first thing he does upon being created from the Mirror Of Truth is casually backhand Pandora.
* DubNameChange: From "''Black'' Pit" in the Japanese version.
* DynamicEntry:
** In Chapter 9, he charges in from out of nowhere to deliver a literal flying kick to the
Underworld Gatekeeper, dropping the boss that Pit was struggling to damage even with the Three Sacred Treasures. Palutena notes that "face-kicking isn't usually this effective."
** In Chapter 20, he comes out of nowhere to slam the Lightning Chariot into the closing portal to the Chaos Vortex, expanding it for him and Pit to enter.
* EarlyBirdCameo: One of Pit's alternate colors in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]'' is basically Dark Pit with normal Pit's eye color.
* EnemyWithout: Downplayed. He's the personification of Pit's worst qualities...but Pit is such a NiceGuy that his "worst qualities" are his sarcastic sense of humor, brashness, and stubborn behavior.
* EmbarrassingNickname:
** "Pittoo", courtesy of Palutena. He's known as Bla-Pi or Kuro-Pi in Japan, short for Black Pit or Kuro Pit, and [[SdrawkcabName Tip]] in French. Regardless of the version, he hates it.
** Hades takes it a bit farther and gives him the downright childish name of ''Pitooey''.
** He's less prone to reacting to it as time goes on in ''Uprising'', although he'll still snap at Pit for calling him that in ''Smash 4''.
** It also hasn't stuck completely. In ''Smash 4'', the others actually call him "Dark Pit" when merely talking ''about'' him, but use "Pittoo" to his face, possibly to get a rise out of him (such as Pit greeting him in Dark Pit's codec conversation, and [[{{Troll}} Palutena's]] victory quote against him.) Even the crowd calls him Pittoo when cheering for him.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Like his light counterpart, he has no superpowers of his own and the powers he uses come from gods.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: The first thing he does upon his creation is to deliver an OffhandBackhand to Pandora when she orders him to kill Pit, showing he takes orders from no one.
* EveryoneHasStandards: He's absolutely ''disgusted'' with both the Chaos Kin and Hades for desecrating and eating souls, explicitly describing Hades' usage of souls to create monsters as "the sickest thing [he's] ever heard".
* EvilKnockoff: Was supposed to be one of Pit for the
Hades's Heart, Underworld forces. He's really just neutral at worst, and eventually sides with the heroes later on.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Del Rio voices him with a slightly deeper inflection than he does Pit. Not so much "evil" as "AntiHero", though.
* EvilTwin: Starts off as one toward Pit, but subverted midway through when he switches sides. Then he's more of a jerkish twin.
* EvilWearsBlack: To show his status as Pit's dark side. Downplayed in that he's neutral at worst.
* FinishingEachOthersSentences: Leads to Pit and Pitoo finishing a motto together in Chapter 21.
* FlawedPrototype: Sort of; it's stated that Pit smashed the Mirror of Truth before it finished creating Dark Pit. While there seems to be no other side effects (at least not any that have been explicitly linked to apparently being "incomplete" [[labelnote:*]]though it could be the cause of the {{Synchronization}} described below[[/labelnote]]), this is theorized by Palutena as to why Dark Pit holds no inherent allegiances, implying that a "completed" clone would've somehow been inherently loyal to the Underworld Army.
* {{Flight}}: Absorbs Pandora's power to be able to fly on his own. He loses this power in Ch 22 when the Rewind Spring revives her.
* {{Foil}}: To Pit. The two are on opposite ends of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism. Pit is the optimistic idealist who believes in the good of everyone, human and gods alike. Dark Pit, however, is fully aware that humans are bad and the gods are possibly worse. Also, while Pit is extremely loyal to Palutena, Dark Pit holds no allegiance to anyone but himself.
* ForgotICouldFly: He only uses his Pandora-stolen Power of Flight (and incredible boost it gives his ranged attack prowess) as the chapter-end boss in Chapter 6. Also, [[InvertedTrope inverted]]; after Pandora revives in the Rewind Spring, he briefly forgot that he ''couldn't'' fly.
* GoodFeelsGood: Heavily implied to be the reason he keeps coming back to save the day and help Pit, not that he'll admit it.
* GoodIsNotNice: He may share Pit's sense of justice, but he's nowhere as nice as him due to his fierce independent streak and his tendency to speak his mind. Especially shown during the Chaos Kin boss battle where if you hit him by accident, he'll hit back.
* GoodWingsEvilWings: Has dark teal wings (although they appear black in different lighting, or when he's using Pandora's powers to fly), in contrast with Pit's white wings.
* HeelFaceTurn: Probably the biggest thing that sets him apart from all the other evil counterparts of other Nintendo heroes (e.g. [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Dark Link,]] [[Videogame/SuperMarioSunshine Shadow Mario]], [[Videogame/MetroidPrime Dark Samus]], [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} Blood Falcon]], etc.)
* HotBlooded: A more subdued version, but it's still there.
* IWorkAlone: He explicitly states that he's "no pawn" and only serves himself.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Implied during the Chaos Kin arc. His soul is needed to revive the Chaos Kin according to the ash idol (and Viridi states that the Chaos Kin only went after the purest of souls), and according to Hades, Dark Pit's soul isn't your average one. Given that he's the manifestation of Pit's heart and being neutral at worse, it's quite justified that this trait be passed over.
* InSeriesNickname: Pit, Palutena, and every character in the game insists on calling him Pittoo (as in [[{{Pun}} "Pit Two"]]). And he doesn't like it one bit.
* JackOfAllStats: Much like Pit.
* JerkassHasAPoint: It's really difficult to disagree with him when he calls Palutena and Viridi out on how they abuse the world with their powers and blame it on humans. Even Palutena concedes he may have a point.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Abrasive, sarcastic, arrogant, and brash. But hardly a villain.
* TheLancer: Eventually becomes this to Pit.
* MultiMeleeMaster: Much like Pit. In Chapter 6, he can be seen wielding a Blade, Club, Staff, Palm, Cannon, and Bow. He will also be seen using whatever weapon Pit has on him when he breaks the Mirror of Truth, and in Chapter 22, he is playable, and can use any weapon in your inventory. After Chapter 6, he seems to settle into using a Silver Bow for land battle and a variant of the First Blade that shoots darkness in air battles.
* {{Naytheist}}: He dislikes taking orders from the gods and tends to view them as petty squabblers who cause most of the problems in the story... [[JerkassHasAPoint and he's not entirely incorrect]].
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: His reaction to seeing Amazon Pandora is that of confusion given that he doesn't stop attacking her and isn't convinced that's the real Pandora, whereas Palutena and Viridi are shocked and Hades is silent from the revelation.
* NotSoAboveItAll: The fact that he and Pit think the same way puts him in this category by default (as shown in Chapter 21, where they finished their motto that they both made up on the spot.)
* OffhandBackhand: To Pandora which doubles as an EstablishingCharacterMoment.
* OnlySaneMan: He tries to come off as one compared to everyone else. However...
* {{Parody}}: Of the DarkerAndEdgier EvilCounterpart character in games, like [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Shadow]]. His tendency to "fight for himself" is mocked by several characters, and a lot of his actions in general are mocked for being edgy for the sake of being edgy.
* PowerCopying: He absorbs Pandora's powers after helping Pit take her down. Downplayed, however, in that he mainly uses her power to help him fly by himself and never showcases any of Pandora's powers in his boss fights.
* PunnyName:
** Pit -> Pittoo (Pit Two).
** "Pittoo" also serves as onomatopoeia for the sound of ''someone spitting'', which makes his EmbarrassingNickname more insulting than other versions. Hades exaggerates it into the downright childish "Pitooey".
* RealityEnsues: In the English version of the game, Dark Pit arrives and performs a diving kick to take down the Underworld Gatekeeper and emerges completely unharmed, prompting Palutena to note that such a feat is usually not that effective. Sure enough, she's proven right in the Japanese version, where kicking the Gatekeeper ends up injuring his leg.
* RecurringBoss: Fought four times throughout the game, and his chapter has five different scenarios with two randomly selected each time you play plus the final time in center stage.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: As Pit's EvilTwin, he has the evil red eyes. He's a better guy following his HeelFaceTurn but you should still take warning.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Pit's red.
* ReverseGrip: When separating his bow into twin blades, he tends to hold one in this position, just like Pit.
* ShadowArchetype: Of Pit.
* SimpleStaff: One of his [[MultiMeleeMaster many weapons of choice]]. While he uses a Bow for most of the game, it's notable that there is a weapon called the Dark Pit Staff. Of course, since staffs are considered sniping weapons in ''Uprising'', he ends up fitting a [[ColdSniper different trope.]] In Chapter 6 he spends the flight section [[GetBackHereBoss "kiting"]] Pit, and one of the possible fights the game sets up with Dark Pit has him sniping at Pit from atop a mountain with his titular staff.
* SixthRangerTraitor: He was intended to be an EvilKnockoff of Pit that works for the Underworld Army, but he defected right after he was created and eventually goes on to aid Palutena's forces.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: The Straight Man to Pit's Wise Guy.
* {{Synchronization}}: What happens to Pit, happens to Dark Pit as well... well, sometimes. Whether or not this due to being a FlawedPrototype as described above or simply inherent to being Pit's clone is unknown.
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: The very first thing he did upon creation was deliver an OffhandBackhand to Pandora and help Pit take her down. Palutena theorizes that he turned on the Underworld Army because Pit smashed the Mirror of Truth before he was completed.
* {{Tsundere}}: The Japanese version of the game aims for Dark Pit being a Type A instead of the lone wolf that he is portrayed as in the English version.
* TwinTelepathy: During certain portions of the game, he and Pit seem to be able to connect at certain points. Viridi even comments on it.
* WhenHeSmiles: The ending of ''Uprising''. He also smiles whether he wins or [[GracefulLoser loses in ''Light versus Dark''.]]
* WildCard: And damn proud of it. He's unpredictable to the point you don't know who he'll side with until [[HeelFaceTurn he officially sides with Pit later on in the game.]] ''Smash 4'' reveals that he currently works for the
Soldiers, Viridi, Cragalanche, Arlon, Phosphora, Forces of Nature post-''Uprising'', though as he states "Viridi's interests Soldiers, Orcos, The Space Pirates and mine just happen to overlap," this is likely a temporary arrangement.
* WingedHumanoid: He's an angel, so it's to be expected.
* WingsDoNothing: Averted at first. Absorbing Pandora's power allowed Dark Pit to fly on his own. He loses this power in Ch 22 when the Rewind Spring revives her.
* WouldHitAGirl: Especially if she is Pandora.

[[folder:Magnus]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/KenjiNomura (JP), Creator/FredTatasciore (EN, ''Uprising''), Creator/PatrickSeitz (EN, ''Smash 4'')
[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_1magna_3247.png]]

-->''"My name's Magnus, by the way. Don't hit me, and we'll get along just fine."''

The most powerful human warrior of all. As a member of a roaming mercenary group, he has triumphed in countless brutal missions.

* AntiHero: In that he's OnlyInItForTheMoney. That being said, he's far more heroic than the standard AntiHero.
* BadassBaritone: Courtesy of Creator/FredTatasciore.
* BadassNormal: He's a human warrior who can face off against supernatural foes with nothing but his sword. Naturally, this is constantly lampshaded.
* {{BFS}}: It's so big that Pit's version of the weapon is classified as a Magnus ''Club''.
* BladeAcrossTheShoulder: His default pose.
* BrutalHonesty: Magnus doesn't pull punches nor minces words. If he's got something to say, he'll say it flat out.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: He's only a baseline human, but able to beat down and overpower the Underworld forces by himself.
* CloseRangeCombatant: He attacks solely with melee attacks seeing as how he lacks the ability to shoot projectiles with his weapon.
* CrusadingWidower: It is mentioned by Palutena and his idol description that he had lost a child to the Underworld Forces. He doesn't talk about it much, if at all.
* DeadpanSnarker: Has his moments.
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: This memorable line in Ch 2.
-->'''Magnus''': Hey, if you're chatting with your precious goddess, give her a message from me. Tell her she's been sleeping on the job! My world is on the edge of collapse.
* DualBoss: With Gaol in chapter 24.
* DubNameChange: From "Magna" in the Japanese version. Justified, Magna is the ''feminine'' form of the word in Latin.
* {{Expy}}: His whole chapter and involvement with Gaol is a WholePlotReference to ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', which would cast him as Guts.
* {{Foil}}: Serves as one to Pit. Both are skilled warriors, but unlike Pit, who [[HotBlooded charges into battle with guns ablazing]], Magnus handles situations with a more tactical approach.
* FriendlyRivalry: With Gaol, according to the Magnus & Gaol idol.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: It's implied that he goes off living the mercenary life whenever you're not with him.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Sure, he claims to be OnlyInItForTheMoney and doesn't act very polite, but he genuinely cares about other people and is open to the idea of working together with Pit.
* {{Leitmotif}}: A surprisingly heroic one for a blatant AntiHero.
* LightningBruiser: Though he's slightly slower than Pit, he can still move pretty fast. He's also strong enough to take on Underworld monsters by himself.
* MeaningfulName: Magnus is Latin for "great" or "powerful", which characterizes his role as the strongest human warrior quite nicely.
* {{Naytheist}}: While working with Pit in Chapter 2, he tells Pit to let Palutena know that she's slacking off and his world is on the brink of collapse because of it.
* {{Nerf}}: His sword lacks the charged shot that Pit can get (as a club). This means you're forced to fight enemies in close-combat while you're controlling him. The Centurions can be the death of you in the highest difficulties.
* PeoplePuppet: Becomes one briefly in chapter 18 when Pit takes control of him.
* PunchClockHero: He outright states that he does what he does for money. That said, he's still a pretty cool guy.
* RatedMForManly: Deep voice, gruff exterior, muscles, and he's a mercenary to boot.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: The straight man to Pit's wise guy.
* TattooedCrook: Has red tattoos on his right arm.
* TooManyBelts: He has three around his chest, and three on each leg.
* WhamLine: Yesterday?! Try ''THREE YEARS'', buddy!
* WorldsStrongestMan: Strongest human warrior in the world.

-->''"Your training is complete."''

A friendly god who aids Pit either by testing him in exchange for gifts, raising his strength, or raising his health bar.

%%* AllPowerfulBystander
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: While the tile enemies used in his training tests reappear in ''Uprising,'' Zeus doesn't even get a passing mention.
* CatchPhrase: YOU WEAKLING!
* CoolOldGuy: ''Wow, Awesome Job, Pit!''
%%* EccentricMentor
%%* HolyHalo
* NoNameGiven: In the first game and only went under ''friendly god''. Named Zeus in ''Of Myths and Monsters''.
* SinkOrSwimMentor: He'll give you weapon upgrades, only if you pass his training tests.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: In the first game his hair changes colour as Pit's does.

[[folder:Nurse]]
[[quoteright:165:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nursefromkidicarus_6826.jpg]]

The Nurse from the Hospital who removes the Eggplant Curse.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Since the Eggplant Wizard's curse is reduced to a temporary status effect in ''Uprising,'' there isn't much need for her. Pit and Palutena discuss this, but they never bring up the nurse herself.
%%* FlatCharacter
* TheMedic: In the fortresses.

[[quoteright:261:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_2poseidonart_4527.png]]

The God of the Sea. Normally neutral, Poseidon prefers to keep to himself and rule the seas while silently observing events on the surface. Annoyed by the antics of the Underworld Army, he aids Pit and Palutena by opening the sea to the Seafloor Palace.

* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Has bluish skin.
* BadassBaritone: Again, courtesy of Creator/FredTatasciore.
* BadassBeard: And it's quite long.
* BadassMustache: Big and busy.
* {{BFG}}: Does not use one, but a weapon called the Poseidon Cannon is modeled after him.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: His reasoning for sinking a city to stop the humans from becoming a problem.
-->'''Poseidon:''' Humans consist of equal parts hubris, envy, and deceit. Sometimes one has to put them in their place.
* MakingASplash: He's the God of the Sea, people.
* OneShotCharacter: Completely disappears from the plot after Chapter 7.
* OnlySaneMan: Unlike most of the other gods, he has more justifiable reasons for what he does (i.e. sinking a city when those in it were becoming a problem, without going off the handle like Viridi). Granted, however, it's difficult to judge how well he fits this trope due to his rather brief appearance in-story.
* ProngsOfPoseidon: [[CaptainObvious Fittingly enough.]]
* WalkingShirtlessScene: He only wears a white robe.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Sank a city when its inhabitants were becoming a problem. At least he's more calmer about it than Viridi.

[[folder:Pyrrhon, the Sun God]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/TetsuInada (JP), Creator/TroyBaker (EN)
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_pyrrhon_final_6492.png]]

-->''"Pyrrhon senses danger... and now, Pyrrhon sees it!"''

The self-proclaimed Sun God. He is mostly seen as an oddball among gods. Seems to think he's a superhero.

* AffablyEvil: He's quite friendly, even after his true nature is revealed.
* AGodAmI: Technically, he's already one, but he plans to take control of the Aurum and become, in his own words, a "Level Infinity Epic Supergod-Plus!"
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Has red skin.
* AmbitionIsEvil: His desire to take control of the Aurum and be the strongest God resulted in him getting controlled instead, once the Aurum Brain resumed control.
* BarbieDollAnatomy: He's technically nude, but any naughty bits are nonexistent.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: He presents himself as an eccentric, brash, but well-meaning character at first glance, then reveals himself to be far more dangerous than he looks.
* TheChessmaster: He was using everyone's help to get to the Aurum Brain and gain control of the Aurum himself. His plan ends up backfiring about four minutes after his hijack, however.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: [[ObfuscatingStupidity Or at least he acts like one]].
* CreepyMonotone: As Aurum Pyrrhon. He even says "Ow" and "Shazamitylam" in monotone while fighting him.
* ConvectionSchmonvection: He's for all intents and purposes ''Kid Icarus's'' Human Torch, yet he's able to carry Pit without fear of burning him.
* DubNameChange: From "[[Myth/EgyptianMythology Raz]]" in the Japanese version.
* EvilAllAlong: His plan was to merge with the Aurum Brain to become the head of the Aurum HiveMind and become more powerful than the other gods. This backfires once the Aurum Brain takes him over. Though it seems that Pit defeating him brought him back to his senses, as Palutena mentions that he's pushing the Aurum away, though that may just be the massive fiery exhaust from him exploding pushing them away.
* EvilIsHammy: Played with. While he is ''undeniably'' hammy, once he reveals his true colors, he becomes progressively less so. This is due to the Aurum's personality override.
--> '''Aurum Pyrrhon: SHAZAMITYLAM.'''
* EvilIsNotAToy: Taking over the Aurum Brain backfires, as it outwills him eventually.
* FakeUltimateHero: It's eventually revealed he was merely using everyone to take control of the Aurum.
* {{Expy}}: Not of Helios the sun god but of Helios' son Phaethon. Phaethon wasn't acknowledged by the other Gods despite being one of them and took drastic action and demanded to drive his father's chariot to prove them wrong. Not only did it backfire on him, but it cost Phaethon his life.
* FlamingHair: His hair, like most of his body, is completely WreathedInFlames.
* FlyingFirepower: Can fly in the air and toss fire blasts at enemies.
* ForGreatJustice: He has a delivery, and its return address is '''JUSTICE'''!!! Subverted in the end, when it's revealed he plans to take control of the Aurum.
* FullFrontalAssault: He's completely nude.
* GemTissue: Pyrrhon has a green jewel on his forehead.
* GreenEyes: Has green eyes to match the green jewel on his forehead.
* HandBlast: Pyhrron uses this to attack the Aurum. '''Kablooey! Kablammy!''' The Burning Palm weapon, in addition, seems to be patterned after him.
* HeroicBuild: Bordering on WalkingShirtlessScene.
* IdiotHero: He's very heroic, but also very stupid.
* {{Kamehamehadoken}}: His Pyro Cannon attack, which he uses in Ch. 17.
* LargeHam: One of the biggest ones in the game. Given that ''Uprising'' takes place in a WorldOfHam, this is really saying something.
* {{Leitmotif}}: He has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2BRLPgd9rY&feature=my_liked_videos&list=LL5A68Xz9vd9pNuUOTW6GeBw a theme]] that plays when he's the focus of the scenes in chapters 15 and 17. The theme that plays during chapter 17 can count as a DarkReprise since it plays when he hijacks the Aurum.
* LightIsNotGood: He's the Sun God and is seemingly on everyone's side, but it's soon revealed he was using them to take control of the Aurum.
* LordErrorProne: He means well, but he can be reckless at times. Such as unintentionally making the Aurum Generator stronger with his firepower.
* MilesGloriosus: Minus the cowardice, at least. He's brash and brave to a fault.
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Palutena does this to him. His idol refers to him as the ''self-proclaimed'' sun god, so this may be because he's not actually a god.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: He ends up making the Aurum Generator stronger [[FeedItWithFire when he attacks it with fire.]]
* NoIndoorVoice: Shouts practically every line.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Seems like an oddball right? Not exactly...
* ObfuscatingStupidity: He's not nearly as dumb as people think he is. The rest of the cast figures this out all-too late.
* PlayingWithFire: He's the Sun God after all.
* ThePowerOfTheSun: Again, he's the Sun God.
* ShapingYourAttacks: Pyrrhon can mold his fire attacks into other shapes, his SignatureMove being the "Pyro Snake".
* SuperEmpowering: After merging with the Aurum Brain, he's capable of enhancing the Aurum troops with his fire powers.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Pyrrhon always refers to Pyrrhon by Pyrrhon's own name!
* TronLines: Has yellow markings all over his body.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Is never seen or mentioned again after the Aurum arc.
* WhatTheHellHero: He makes the fight against the Aurum Generator harder than it should be by attacking it with fire, and he just sheepishly mutters something close to "oops" and leaves Pit to fend for himself.
-->'''Pit''': Ugh, what an idiot!
* WikiWalk: This is heavily implied just by the mere mention of "Divinipedia". Of course, there's nothing really fishy with his knowledge about the Aurum, given he's the only one of all the gods who seems to know all there is know about them.
* WorthyOpponent: Viridi mentions that the only person he considers an equal is Pit.
* WreathedInFlames: He is constantly surrounded in a flaming aura.
* ZeroesAndOnes: Once controlled by the Aurum, proceeds to rattle off "KILL" in binary before fighting Pit.

[[folder:The Chariot Master]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/HochuOtsuka (JP), Alan Oppenheimer (EN)
A mysterious figure who is the owner of the Lightning Chariot.
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Character_chariotm_6868.png]]
* AlasPoorVillain: While villain is a stretch, his death is treated as this. Both Pit and Viridi felt it was completely pointless and both regret it had to come to that.
* AntiVillain: He really does nothing villainous, but Pit still has to defeat him to get the Lightning Chariot.
* DeathSeeker: Hinted at during his level and BossFight, and confirmed shortly afterwards.
* TheDisembodied: Stated by both him and his Idol description. His body has long been destroyed, and the only thing keeping him going is the fact that he follows the soldier's path in death.
* DubNameChange: From "The Main Tank" in the Japanese version.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: If he has a name beyond the Chariot Master, it's never been revealed.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: He dies peacefully and without regret after Pit defeats him.
* GracefulLoser: Takes his defeat and imminent demise quite well, possibly because [[DeathSeeker he wanted it this way.]]
* HighSpeedBattle: His BossFight consists of Pit and the Chariot Master chasing each other on separate chariots.
* HurtingHero: Heavily implied to be this.
* IHaveManyNames; Said almost verbatim during his introduction.
-->'''Chariot Master:''' I've had many names in my life, but now I am called the Chariot Master.
* NotSoAboveItAll: One test in his tower proves he's not above adding to [[ShoutOut/KidIcarusUprising the Shout-Outs page]].
-->'''Pit:''' Okay, so we've got rolling obstacles.
-->'''Viridi:''' And don't forget the jump pads!
-->'''Pit:''' This seems awfully familiar...
-->'''Hades:''' I guess the Chariot Master has played ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong''.
* OnlySaneMan: He's basically the only calm and reasonable character onscreen, considering when Pit encounters him.
* PlayingWithFire: Primarily tosses fireballs at Pit.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: His refusal to hand over the Lightning Chariot and forcing Pit to climb the tower to confront him was to test Pit and see if he was worthy to wield it.
* ShockAndAwe: Will occasionally call down lightning strikes.
* TheStoic: The most calm and levelheaded character in the game.

The God of Smithing. He created the Three Sacred Treasures.

* AllPowerfulBystander: Is one of, if not the most powerful character in the series, outright stated to be more powerful than even Hades and Palutena. And yet he is content to merely forge weapons and replicas of assorted locations and enemies.
* BadassGrandpa: The oldest and most powerful character in the game.
* BaldOfAwesome: Justified in that he's old.
* CoolOldGuy: An old man who happens to be the most powerful character in the game and is a pretty fun guy to be with.
* DeadpanSnarker: Has his moments.
* DropTheHammer: His forge, which he uses to create his weapons.
* EccentricMentor: His manner of teaching Pit is odd, but he does want to help.
* {{Expy}}: Of the greek god of smithing Hephaestus who was known for making all the weapons for the Gods and keeping out of their affairs.
* TheJuggernaut: Potentially the biggest user of this trope in the entire game going by Palutena's description of Dyntos. To put it bluntly, he can recreate virtually anything and everything without any flaws for the most part[[note]]Pseudo-Palutena might be an exception[[/note]] and being able to make the copies of what he makes should they be enemies be far superior to their originals makes his actual power that's not seen even more frightening. The Great Sacred Treasure being his personal creation without it being based off of anything else as well as Pseudo-Palutena and the copy of the Immortal
Captain, Kraken, Pseudo-Palutena, Phoenix, are three of his strongest creations and are no pushovers. He even managed to recreate [[OneHitKill Ornes]], Underworld monsters that Pit can only defeat with the Arrows of Light and most definitely with the Great Sacred Treasure which according to Dyntos, far surpasses the Three Sacred Treasures in terms of sheer power. Yeah, Dyntos is by far the most realistically powerful being in Uprising. This isn't even getting to where Dyntos isn't really showing his true potential...seeing how Pit's battle against the recreated Space Kraken takes place in '''OUTER SPACE'''.
* RealityWarper: Dyntos can do virtually '''''anything'''''. For starters, he can, among other things, create replicas of ''everyone'' in the game, from enemies to bosses and characters alike. He can even mess with their AI to make them tougher (Such as making an enemy move faster than it normally does). He can even replicate the locations Pit fights them in. He's also capable of replacing Palutena with a clone while ''putting the real Palutena to sleep'' despite her being miles away in Skyworld. What makes this frightening is that there seems to be virtually no limit to his powers and Palutena herself implies that he has none, period. As Palutena herself notes, he could potentially take over everything if he wanted to.
* StoryBreakerPower: Potentially. The speed at which he can make copies of ANYTHING, not to mention make them all superior, could easily see him as the ultimate conqueror if that's what he wanted to accomplish.
* TopGod: If not necessarily the absolute strongest, he's implied to be more powerful than any other god in the series. In addition, Palutena refers to him as Lord Dyntos, implying a position of high authority. Then again, if he's based on Hephaestus, it would make sense that he's stronger than the majority of the Gods given he makes the majority of weapons for said Gods and Goddesses and would know their strengths and weaknesses as a result.
* UltimateBlacksmith: Created the weapons in the game, including the Three Sacred Treasures and the Great Sacred Treasure; he's also made perfect copies of every enemy in the game, as well as a few of the bosses Pit has faced thus far. He's also said to be the one reverse engineering several enemy types (most prominently, the Aurum) into weapons for Pit.

* IHaveManyNames: The dog's Idol description states that every human it runs into assigns it another name.

!Underworld Army

[[folder:Medusa, Goddess of Darkness/Queen of the Underworld]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/NaomiShindo (JP), Creator/CreeSummer (EN)
!!!Debut: ''VideoGame/KidIcarus''
[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_1medusapict_4125.png]]

-->''"So hurry to me, Pit. I'll strip you of your wings and sever you from the heavens forever!"''

Known for her serpentine hair and chilling gaze, Medusa's goal is nothing less than total domination.

* AchillesHeel: In the first game, the Three Sacred Treasures are the only things that can destroy her. Downplayed in ''Uprising'', where Hades' reviving her weakened her to where Pit no longer needs the Treasures.
* AdaptationalBadass: While Medusa was hardly a pushover in Myth/ClassicalMythology, she was hardly the cosmic-level threat she is here.
* AnimalMotifs: The snake, obviously. In ''Medusa's Revenge'', she is shown to have serpentine pupils.
* {{Animorphism}}: ''Medusa's Revenge'' has her turn into a snake before returning to her normal form to fight Pit.
* AntagonistTitle: ''Medusa's Revenge''.
* ArchEnemy: To Palutena and Pit.
* ArcVillain: She appears to be the BigBad at first in ''Uprising'', but it turns out she's only the villain for the first one-third of the whole game (Chapters 1-9, to be exact).
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: In Uprising and in the anime short, ''Medusa's Revenge''.
* BackFromTheDead: In Uprising. And then again at the end of the final level.
* BigBad: In the first game she's the main villain but not in ''Uprising'', where she's just an ArcVillain.
* BodyHorror: Her boss fight reveals she has a mouth on her hand which breathes poison gas. Later on, after going OneWingedAngel, she '''''decapitates herself''''' and sends her head flying after Pit.
* BreathWeapon: The snakes in her hair can fire dark energy blasts from their mouths.
* BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu: She punches Hades in the head so hard it DECAPITATES him, but doing that breaks off the arm she did it with.
* CainAndAbel: The Cain to Palutena's Abel.
* CardCarryingVillain: She's the Goddess of Darkness and makes no bones about it.
* CastingAShadow: As befits the Goddess of Darkness.
* ClassicVillain: Representing Ambition and Wrath.
* {{Cyclops}}: Her form at the end of ''Kid Icarus''. She once again [[OneWingedAngel takes this form in ''Kid Icarus Uprising'' after receiving enough damage.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Not as much as other characters in the game, but she has her moments.
* DeathSeeker: Sort of; in Chapter 25, she attacks Hades so he'll stop resurrecting her over and over. It dosen't work too well.
* DetachmentCombat: During the final phase of the fight in ''Uprising'', she will take her head off and send it flying after Pit.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: In ''Uprising''. Thought the game was over? You're not even halfway done.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Pale white skin with black hair.
* EvilAlbino: Has pale white skin.
* EvilCounterpart: To Palutena.
* EvilIsBigger: Most of the gods are human-sized, with Palutena only being a little bit taller than Pit, and Viridi being shorter than him. Medusa, however, is absolutely massive. Judging by Pit's reaction though, she wasn't always like this, and it may be a result of her dark magic.
* ExcessiveEvilEyeshadow: Wears a lot of it.
* EyeBeams: Her main method of attack during her fight.
* FallenHero: She once ruled Skyworld alongside Palutena, but her heart turned evil and she began attacking humanity, forcing Palutena to exile her.
* FauxAffablyEvil: She's quite reserved and soft-spoken, but is far from kind.
* FemmeFatalons: Her fingers are claws and she has no problem using them as weapons.
* FinalBoss: Of the first game.
* FoeRomanceSubtext: Quite a bit between her and Pit in Chapter 9.
-->'''Medusa:''' I can sense you getting closer, Pit.
-->'''Pit:''' There's nowhere left for you to run!
-->'''Medusa:''' Y'know, I'm very much looking forward to your arrival. I feel like Rapunzel waiting for her prince.
-->'''Pit:''' Sorry to break it to you, but those aren't exactly golden locks on your head.
-->'''Medusa:''' And you're not exactly a brave hero. Yet somehow the thought of our confrontation fills me with anticipation. So hurry to me, Pit. I'll strip you of your wings and sever you from the heavens forever.
-->'''Pit:''' I don't think so!
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: Played with. Medusa has a defined personality, but is mostly characterized by her lifelong grudge against Pit and Palutena and has no real goals beyond taking revenge on them.
* GlamourFailure: Her AR idol description states that she uses magic to hide her true appearance, but is forced to use all her power into fighting Pit, causing the disguise to fail.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: In the anime short ''Medusa's Revenge'', and ''man'' is it creepy.
* GodOfEvil: Well, one of them, anyway.
* GorgeousGorgon: Was beautiful before Palutena transformed her into a monster in the first game. Became sexy once more in ''Uprising''. [[GlamourFailure Until she was forced to put all her power into fighting Pit, leaving none to maintain her appearance.]]
* HotGoddess: Until she goes OneWingedAngel.
* HumansAreBastards: Medusa developed a hatred for humanity and started drying up their crops and petrifying them, believing them to be ungrateful beings that only turn to the gods when they need them. This is why Palutena turned her into a hideous mosnter and banished her to the Underworld.
-->'''Medusa:''' Humans turn to the gods in times of need, then forget them in times of prosperity. They really are a fickle bunch.
* KnightOfCerebus: Though downplayed, she's the only villain aside from the Chaos Kin to have no comedic elements (Hades is only played serious onscreen). The fact that she's one of the few characters in the game who doesn't break the fourth wall also helps.
* LargeAndInCharge: She's {{Kaiju}}-sized, and by far the largest thing fought except Hades, who is as big as she is.
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: Most of the snakes in her hair are green, with the exception of one, which is orange. When she goes OneWingedAngel, ''all'' of the snakes in her hair turn orange.
* LastSecondChance: Palutena gives Medusa one last chance to surrender by promising to spare her if she agrees to withdraw her forces and remain in her castle. Works as well as you'd expect.
* LongRangeFighter: In terms of fighting style, she prefers to keep her distance and bombard opponents with dark energy blasts, only using melee attacks when the opponent is close enough.
* LoopholeAbuse: In the second phase of the fight, Palutena uses a spell to chain Medusa's legs to the ground to prevent her from teleporting. Medusa circumvents this by decapitating herself and sending her head flying at Pit.
* {{Medusa}}: Well, [[CaptainObvious yeah]].
* MoralMyopia: Resents Palutena for turning her into a monster and exiling her to the Underworld while conveniently ignoring the fact that the reason she did that in the first place was because she was attacking humanity.
* NotSoDifferent: Tries to pull this one on Palutena before Pit shuts her up. However, given Palutena's silence... [[GoodisNotNice she might be right.]]
* ObviouslyEvil: Just look at her.
* OneWingedAngel: In ''Uprising'', she transforms into a more traditional Gorgon who has a head that will chase after you.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: She basically stays in her castle while her commanders do all the work.
* PimpedOutDress: Her dress is rather sexy.
* PoisonousPerson: Has a mouth on her right hand that expels poison gas.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Tries to pull one on Palutena, but [[ShutUpHannibal Pit interrupts her.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: When she goes OneWingedAngel.
* {{Revenge}}: Her primary motivation.
* ASinisterClue: She holds her StaffOfAuthority in her left hand, unlike Palutena who holds it in her right.
* SlasherSmile: In ''Medusa's Revenge''.
* SnakesAreSexy: Until she goes OneWingedAngel anyway...
* SoftSpokenSadist: Maintains a deep, feminine voice even as she muses on how a bloodbath would be the perfect way to celebrate her resurrection.
* StaffOfAuthority: In ''Uprising''.
* TheStoic: Is remarkably calm, barely raising her voice even in dire situations, and never suffers a VillainousBreakdown.
* StationaryBoss: Phase two of her three-phase battle in ''Uprising''; Palutena uses a spell to chain her feet to the floor so she'll stop using TeleportSpam. Medusa gets around this later by going OneWingedAngel and throwing her flying head at you.
* TakenForGranite: You wouldn't be Medusa if you didn't do this. Strangely, the only time she uses this ability is during the anime short and unlike the Medusa in classic Greek mythology, she doesn't use her gaze, but rather uses dark energy shot from her fingers.
* TeleportSpam: For such a huge body, she seems to easily teleport all around during her boss fight in Uprising, at least until Palutena manages to chain her to the ground.
* UnwittingPawn: Hades revived her only as a distraction.
* VillainousRescue: In the final portion of the final chapter, Medusa comes out of nowhere and blocks Hades' attack on Pit. She claims that it was because she didn't want to be his puppet anymore, but it was still a huge shocker.
* WorfHadTheFlu: Palutena notes that Medusa seems weaker than she was previously. And this is indeed true as Pit is able to beat her without the use of the Three Sacred Treasures when in the first game, he could only defeat her with the Treasures equipped.

[[folder:Hades, Lord of the Underworld]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/HochuOtsuka (JP), Scott Bullock (EN)
[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_501px-hades_final_7377.png]]

-->''"Welcome to '''my''' underworld, Pitty Pat. You too, Pretty Palutena."''

The true Lord of the Underworld. Other creatures, such as Medusa, are merely his pawns.

'''Many spoilers lie ahead. You have been warned.'''
* AdaptationalBadass: Hades in Greek mythology was powerful, but nowhere at the level of this version, who poses a threat to the entire universe.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Hades in Greek mythology was not a nice guy, but his worst crime was tricking Demeter's daughter into staying in the Underworld. This Hades, by comparison, seeks to kill humanity and harvest their souls for his realm.
* AlienBlood: In Chapter 23, when Dark Pit [[ChestBurster bursts out of his chest with the Lightning Chariot]], Hades is shown to have purple and green blood.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: His skin is entirely purple, with a hint of red here and there.
* AppleOfDiscord: Manages to make something ''that doesn't exist'' one, as he spreads the rumor about the Wish Seed to get the humans to kill each other.
* AttackItsWeakPoint: In the second phase of the fight, Pit must destroy the turrets on his body and cape as he works his way up, then fire at the swirling void on his cape. In the third phase, Pit must fire at the glowing wound on his chest left by the Lightning Chariot. In the fourth phase, Pit must fire at the jeweled core created when he regenerates his legs.
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: When Pit finally confronts Hades, his size compared to Pit is gigantic. Pit appears to be the size of one of Hades's fingernails at most.
* AtopAMountainOfCorpses: He wanted to get one started so he could fuel up on souls during the final battle, much to everyone's digust.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Is the TopGod of the Underworld and by far and away the most powerful. Though he prefers to rule from the shadows, he has no problem getting his hands dirty if he has to.
* BaconAddiction: He compares souls to bacon in chapter 23: they taste good with everything.
* BadassArmfold: When he's not doing a SlouchOfVillainy, his arms are crossed as a show of his authority.
* BadassBaritone: Courtesy of Scott Bullock.
* BadassCape: It can even shoot lasers!
* BadassInCharge: Of the Underworld.
* BadBoss: In contrast to Palutena and Viridi, Hades does not care about his troops in the slightest. He even lets them fight without a commander, claiming they are too stupid to have actual brains, and later kills Medusa for interfering in the final battle.
* BerserkButton: Judging from his [[UnstoppableRage reactions]] to Dark Pit vowing to stop him in chapter 22 and Medusa's betrayal in the final battle, he ''really'' hates having his rule questioned.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: While definitely comedic, he's far from harmless, shown especially during Chapter 23 where he destroys the Three Sacred Treausres and actually beats Pit in their first fight. And though Pit puts up a better fight with the Great Sacred Treasure, Hades still manages to claim the upper hand and destroy it. Had Medusa not pulled a {{Villainous Rescue}}, Hades would have killed Pit.
* BlatantLies: He claims he wanted to use the (fake) Wish Seed to revive a girl's parents who he killed in a chariot accident, give them cash, and make them royalty... [[BadLiar Nobody believes it for a second.]]
* BlowYouAway: Transforms into a large tornado during the final battle.
* BodyHorror: Happens throughout his final battle with Pit. First, he gets bifurcated by the Great Sacred Treasure. Then, when charging his most powerful attack, his forehead opens to reveal a large, grotesque ThirdEye and gets his head blown off when Medusa punches him.
* BreathWeapon: Used to destroy the Three Sacred Treasures. Lampshaded by Pit when he says Hades has raunchy breath.
* BrilliantButLazy: He's a capable strategist and an equally capable fighter, but is ''extremely'' lazy and prefers to let others do his dirty work.
* BulletHell: What his FinalBoss fight is in a nutshell. Quite literally considering the first half of the fight takes place in the Underworld.
* TheCaligula: He's the ruler of the Underworld who sees causing destruction as a good time. Not the picture of mental health one would expect in a ruler.
* CannibalismSuperpower: Can devour souls to increase his strength or for healing purposes. Though doing so disrupts the celestial balance of the world.
* CardCarryingVillain: Depending on how he wants to annoy people that day, he'll openly brag about how destructive he is for the sake of getting a rise out of people. In Chapter 15, he mockingly refers to Pit and Palutena as "do-gooders."
* CasanovaWannabe: Whenever he flirts with goddesses [[FoeYay (or Pit)]], they usually feel disgusted.
* CastingAShadow: Primarily attacks with blasts of dark energy.
* TheChessmaster: Manipulates the Wish Seed plot to turn the humans against each other so he can harvest their souls.
* ClassicVillain: Representing greed, sloth, pride, and wrath.
* ControlFreak: Has shades of it. As the ruler of the Underworld, Hades expects things to ''always'' go his way. When something happens that threatens to take away that control like, say, subordinates questioning or rebelling against him, it's one of the few moments when Hades will react with genuine rage and extreme violence.
* CurbStompBattle: His first fight with Pit has him destroying the Three Sacred Treasures and mopping the floor with Pit.
* DarkIsEvil: Has more in common with traditional depictions of Satan then the Greek Hades.
* DeadpanSnarker: No matter what the situation, Hades always has a wisecrack ready.
* DiabolicalMastermind: Orchestrated the entire plot of the game.
* DivingKick: At the end of the first phase of the final battle, he performs one in a last-ditch attempt to destroy the Great Sacred Treasure, but Pit teleports away in time.
* EldritchLocation: His stomach is revealed to be an alternate dimension according to its idol description.
* EnemyMine: He teams up with Palutena and Viridi to take down the Aurum. Of course, this is only because he wants to plunder Earth for himself.
* EnergyBall: Has several variations. Some that fire trick shots if fired on, others that fire if Pit does nothing.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He claims that the Chaos Kin "is too much of a handful even for him."
* EverybodyHatesHades: And he gives them plenty of reason to.
* EvilBrit: Speaks with a British accent.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: He claims that he sees no difference between reincarnation and devouring souls despite the fact that the latter action disrupts the balance. Though knowing him, he probably said that to mess with Pit.
* EvilIsBigger: Like Medusa, he's kaiju-sized while most of the other gods are roughly human-sized.
* EvilIsHammy: He's essentially an evil Tim Curry with godly powers.
* EvilIsPetty: Despite Hades having much higher goals and ambitions, he just cannot resist opportunities to rub salt in his enemies's wounds, or just mess with them for a good laugh at their expense. Despite working with the heroes to stop the Aurum, Hades still summons Mimicuties to impede his progress just to screw with him. And later, in Ch. 19, Hades sends Underworld troops to retrieve the Lightning Chariot just to get in Pit's way.
-->'''Palutena''': You'd think the lord of the Underworld would be too busy for mischief making.\\
'''Hades''': Oh, ''no.'' Making mischief is one of my principal responsibilities.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Thanks to Scott Bullock.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Good God, to say nothing of him devouring Pit. When the angel questions how he could punch through his stomach, Hades' response is to devour an assortment of Underworld enemies for him to deal with.
* EyeBeams: Has several. The most powerful of them is one fired from the third eye on his forehead.
* FacialMarkings: He has red streaks going across his face, which gives off the vibe of a mask.
* FangsAreEvil: Has small fangs in his normal form. Subverted when he grows a new head, which lacks fangs.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Hades carries an air of good showmanship most of the time, presenting himself as an affable, though eccentric gentlemen, though he's prone to making backhanded compliments and snide remarks most of the time. He even teams up with the heroes to defeat the Aurum, [[PragmaticVillainy though for his own reasons]]. Underneath it all, however, Hades is a total psychopath and when he [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness lets the mask slip]], he's outright terrifying. Despite that however, he does have enough respect to [[GracefulLoser congratulate Pit after he defeats him for good.]] This is even lampshaded by his trophy descriptions in ''Smash 4''.
-->'''NA''': The true ruler of the Underworld, he is so powerful that he easily resurrected Medusa for his own amusement—and to distract his foes. Full of arrogance, he does have a genuine sense of humor, though it mainly serves to conceal his callous disregard for life.
-->'''PAL''': The true ruler of the Underworld Army. He resurrected Medusa, then sat back to watch the chaos unfold. His power and skill surpass those of all other gods, yet he seems very nonchalant. Once you get past his jokey exterior, though, it's clear how cruel and twisted he really is.
* FinalBoss: As often as other issues get in the way, he and Pit finally get to duke it out in the final chapter of the game.
* FlamingHair: His green-and-red hair flows in such a manner that it evokes imagery of fire, fittingly enough. And in his final form during the final battle, his entire head becomes coated in an otherworldly neon-blue fire.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: There are several hints in the beginning chapters that Hades is the true BigBad of the game.
** In Ch 6, Both Pit and Palutena note that despite the Mirror of Truth being destroyed, the Underworld Army is still getting new monsters. Later it's revealed that Hades uses the souls of fallen humans to create his monsters.
** In Ch 7, When Palutena asks Thanatos why he doesn't outrank Medusa as he's the God of Death, Thanatos makes weird Indian noises to dodge the question, implying that he knows Medusa is Hades's pawn, but didn't want to reveal it.
** In Ch 9, Medusa herself admits that she had no idea how she came back to life and that her memories are fuzzy at best. Palutena also notes that Medusa is weaker than she normally is. Then Hades reveals himself at the end of the chapter.
* ForTheEvulz: He himself admits that committing acts of evil is his idea of a good time.
* FrickinLaserBeams: During the final phase of the fight.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: He literally shows up out of nowhere, the only foreshadowing to someone being behind Medusa being that she herself didn't know how she came back from the dead, only revealed when you fight her. He then pops up during the credits and tears off the credit screen before revealing he brought her back. Unlike most other examples, he kinda works since he's less than half way through the game.
* GoodColorsEvilColors: Purple, red, black, and green? This guy ''screams'' evil.
* GracefulLoser: Takes his defeat well even without considering his secret message.
* GreaterScopeVillain: Revealed to be the one orchestrated the first game's events, and brought Medusa back to life.
* GodOfEvil: The God of the Underworld and the most malevolent villain in the game.
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: During the final battle. It doesn't last very long.
* HealingFactor: He manages to regenerate the entire lower half of his body after Pit slices him in half with the Great Sacred Treasure, as well as his head after Medusa punches it off.
* HopelessBossFight: His first fight with Pit, which you could go intto with or without the Sacred Treasures.
* {{Hypocrite}}: He claims that humans are predictable due to their greed, yet it is his greed that causes all the suffering that happens in the game.
* IAmNotLeftHanded: His entire first fight with Pit (especially shown if you go in with the Three Sacred Treasures) has him taking [[NoSell zero damage]] from said weapons and he then damages said ancient weapons to where they become unusable for the rest of the chapter (and for the remaining chapters past that point) forcing Pit to use the weapon he originally had equipped. The only major blow that Pit deals most likely agitated Hades instead of actually hurting him. Taken further in his final fight against Pit who is now using the Great Sacred Treasure, Hades true potential wasn't even achieved since he wasn't able to 'destroy the human settlements and consume their souls' to make himself stronger, literally meaning that Pit wasn't facing Hades at his [[OhCrap actual peak performance]].
* InsaneTrollLogic: As is fitting his trolling personality. He manages to take Pit's understandable horror at the idea of being defecated out of the WombLevel and somehow warp it into meaning that Pit ''hates life''.
* InvincibleVillain: An odd example of this trope as his invinciblity is mostly due to tactics. Thanks to his XanatosGambit in Ch 10, most of the game is things going his way. Even with the appearance of other [[ArcVillain Arc Villains]], no matter what happens, Hades would get more souls for his realm. And though he's one of the most powerful characters in the game, very little of the game is spent fighting him.
* ItsAllAboutMe: It's all about getting things his way no matter who has to suffer in the process. Best shown by this statement during his introduction:
--> '''Hades''': But she's old news, and old news bores me. We must look to the future and that future is ''me!'' The ''true'' leader of the Underworld! Next to me, little miss Medusa's going to look like a sweet, cuddly bunny!
* {{Jerkass}}: Let's just get it out there: Even at his "[[FauxAffablyEvil nicest]]", he's still a total asshole.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Teams up with the heroes to stop the Aurum solely because he wants to be the only one to plunder the Earth.
* TheJuggernaut: Blowing up his heart? Cutting him in half? Decapitating him? He [[NoSell no sells]] it all and trucks on. Only the complete destruction of his entire physical being will put him down. And even then, as TheStinger shows, it probably inconvenienced him at worst.
* KickTheDog: He keeps trying to get Pit killed even when he's siding with him during the Aurum invasion.
* KillAllHumans: He uses their souls to produce more monsters and to do whatever else he wants with them.
* KnightOfCerebus: Only when he or his projection is on-screen. When he's off-screen making much of the banter between Pit and the other gods, he is mostly comedic, but when he's on-screen, the atmosphere gets much more serious. Played straight in the Japanese version, where he's more or less a straightforward villain with no hint of comedy.
* LackOfEmpathy: He starts a war and has no remorse for killing millions of people, sees souls as nothing more than tools to be manipulated or empowering nourishment, and also laughs at Pit for being stuck in the ring. Summed up quite well in this exchange between himself and Viridi in chapter 22:
-->'''Viridi''': Your disregard for life is just ''astounding''. Could you ''be'' any more callous?\\
'''Hades''': Well, I could ''try''.
* LargeAndInCharge: Rivals Medusa as the largest boss in the game.
* LargeHam: Hades has a tendency to be loud and hammy when he's talking.
* LaughablyEvil: He's a madman, but one can't help but find him funny simply because he's a massive troll of a god.
* {{Leitmotif}}: A three-note [[OminousLatinChanting ominous chant]] heard [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tMqUYXe6VI here]]. It gets remixed in the final battle.
* LightningBruiser: As demonstrated in the final battle, he's surprisingly athletic for his size, able to keep up with the Great Sacred Treasure just by sprinting. He can fly at incredible speeds and is strong enough to punch through the ground (getting his arm stuck in the process).
--> '''Viridi''': It's kinda like watching an elephant sprint.
* TheManBehindTheMan: In ''Uprising''. (Not the entire series. As far as we know, anyways.)
* ManipulativeBastard: He spreads a rumor about the Wish Seed to get humans to go to war and kill each other so he can take their souls. He manipulates Pit in order to kill the Phoenix in order to get the humans to kill each other even more.
* MoreDakka: '''Whoa nelly'''. He is ''literally'' a walking BulletHell. He has EyeBeams, [[WaveMotionGun huge lasers]] that he can fire from his forehead and each of his palms, thrown DeflectorShields that [[RecursiveAmmo shoot out their own fireballs]], trick bullets that fly straight into you if you shoot them by mistake, more trick bullets that fly back to hit you if you ''don't'' shoot them down... and to top it all off, his [[PoweredArmor Devastation Ensemble]] allows him to ''grow'' all kinds of turrets out of just about any part of his clothing. FinalBoss indeed.
* TheNicknamer: as "Pitty-Pat" and "Pretty Palutena" can attest to
* NighInvulnerable: Having his heart destroyed just irritates him, getting ''cut in half'' doesn't bother him, getting ''DECAPITATED'' barely slows him down, and even when Pit vaporizes him with the Great Sacred Treasure's Final Strike, TheStinger shows that he's ''still alive'' in some capacity. Put simply, Hades. Just. Won't. ''Die''.
* NotMeThisTime: Pulls this twice, first bringing up that the Aurum aren't his doing, and later states that the Chaos Kin doesn't work for him, and there's nothing seen to contradict his claim.
* NotQuiteDead: His voice starts talking in TheStinger. He himself concedes that he probably can never come back to life, but is still able to talk to the player as a disembodied voice at least.
* NotSoFastBucko: In chapter 9, while Pit and Palutena are celebrating Medusa's defeat, Hades cuts in at that moment, declaring, "Now, wait just a second."
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Despite his [[EvilIsHammy flair for the dramatic]] and [[{{Troll}} trollish personality]], he is a [[TheChessmaster very competent schemer]] and [[TopGod one of the most powerful characters in the game]], second only to [[AllPowerfulBystander Dyntos]]. Literally, the '''''only''''' reason he lost was due to Medusa's intervention.
* ObviouslyEvil: Just look at him.
* OffWithHisHead: Medusa punches his head clean off, not that it slows him down as he's still got another.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Hades is always evil and scary, but there are very few times he drops the levity of his hammy speech and constant jokes in favor of just being 100% dead serious, angry, and violent. First when Dark Pit threatens his dominion over the Underworld (enough so for Hades to smash a pillar in rage), and again during and after Medusa's defiance in the final battle. He also reacted with understandable anger when Dark Pit [[ChestBurster tore out of his insides on the Lightning Chariot]], though even then he goofily chose to express his anger as "That wasn't very NICE!!". He also gets over it rather quickly.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: He is VERY lazy, and the only time he gets up and does anything himself is when Pit comes to fight him.
* OverarchingVillain: He's the overriding BigBad of ''Uprising'', being behind the general conflict of the whole game and the one that Pit and Palutena ultimately aim to stop but Hades himself only acts as a direct threat for Chapters 10 and 22-25, [[DiscOneFinalBoss Medusa]] antagonizing Pit for Chapters 1-9 and a host of {{Arc Villain}}s filling Chapters 11-21.
* PerpetualSmiler: He usually has a cross of a SlasherSmile and a {{troll}}-face-style smile on his face. [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness The minute he stops smiling is the minute things are about to get very bloody.]]
* PersonOfMassDestruction: When wearing his Devastation Ensemble which allows him to spawn weapons from any part of his body. If he were to go all out, there wouldn't be much of a world left to save. His AR Card even describes him as a literal weapon of mass destruction.
* PhysicalGod: Of the Underworld.
* PowerEchoes: Whenever he speaks, it has this effect to his voice.
* PoweredArmor: His "Devastation Ensemble" is an odd example of this, being just a covering of light over parts of his regular outfit, but allowing him to spawn any and all manner of weaponry out of that light. He loses it after Pit bifurcates him with the Great Sacred Treasure.
* PowerFist: Does not use one, but the End-All Arm seems to be patterned after him.
* PowerOfTheVoid: During the third round of the fight, Hades creates vortexes on his hands to draw Pit in and hold him in place to fire more shots at him. The vortexes can be destroyed by Pit's own shots.
* PragmaticVillainy: He sides with Palutena and Viridi during the Aurum arc only because he wants to be the one to destroy humanity.
* {{Pride}}: As hinted toward by his out-of-character moments, it seems that his only BerserkButton is the questioning of his power and control. Combine this with his motivation being the desire to ''play around with souls'', and it indicates quite a power and control lust.
* PunchCatch: Pulls one off against Medusa after her VillainousRescue, which he follows up by ripping her arm clean off and finishing her off with a powerful uppercut.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Hades's skin color is predominantly purple, and he is indeed very powerful (as you should expect from someone with the title 'Lord of the Underworld.')
* RapidFireFisticuffs: In his first fight with Pit.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: And his character portraits show that they glow red when he loses his temper.
* SevenDeadlySins: While greed, sloth, pride, and wrath are his biggest vices, Hades, in a way, represents ''all'' of them. He has a greed and gluttony for souls, has a lust for power and control, is incredibly slothful and prefers to let others do his dirty work, is extremely arrogant and vain, and reacts with extreme wrath when threatened.
* SlasherSmile: His default expression.
* SlouchOfVillainy: His defaut pose when he's not doing a BadassArmfold.
* TheSociopath: Incredibly manipulative with tons of charisma, but has no empathy for anything but himself. To him, everything else is either a controllable pawn or a toy he can play with until it breaks, and he won't let anything that can't be controlled exist.
* SoulPower: He can use souls for a variety of purposes such as regnerating lost limbs or reviving fallen allies. A major plot point is that the Underworld Monsters are created from the souls of fallen humans and multiple souls are needed to create one monster.
* SpikesOfVillainy: When wearing his Deavastation Ensemble, he has three giant spikes protruding from his right shoulder.
* StepfordSmiler: Type C. Wears an ever-present smile, but is a total psychopath.
* TheStinger: If you wait five minutes after the credits, you get treated to Hades's disembodied voice shattering whatever remains of the fourth wall.
* SuperStrength: Able to rip Medusa's arm clean off and kill her in a single uppercut.
* TermsOfEndangerment: Pitty Pat for Pit. Pretty, Professor, or Know-it-all Palutena for Palutena. Pitooey for Dark Pit. Lovely Little Phosphora for Phosphora. Big Bad or Little Miss Medusa for Medusa. He's a fountain of these.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: His attitude towards the earth during the Aurum invasion. The earth his his to destroy and no one else's.
-->'''Hades:''' But whatever they are, they must be stopped. Earth is ''my'' flower to plunder, not ''theirs!''
* ThirdEye: Has one that he opens up to fire his WaveMotionGun.
* ThisIsADrill: He just pops a drill out of his body in his attempt to destroy the Great Sacred Treasure.
* TokenEvilTeammate: During the Aurum arc.
* TopGod: He leads all of the gods of the underworld in ''Uprising'', including Medusa, Thanatos, and Pandora.
* {{Troll}}: Oh my good bloody Lord... He even gives ''Palutena'' a run for her money by having an almost permanent Troll Face!
* VacuumMouth: Used to swallow Pit whole in Chapter 23.
* VileVillainSaccharineShow: While the game is more Crapsaccharine than Saccharine due to the setting and nature of the game, it still is quite lighthearted. Hades on the other hand, is the GodOfEvil who seeks to destroy humanity to harvest their souls for his own greed. LaughablyEvil moments aside, Hades is one of the more darker villains of the game. Gets even worse in the Japanese version where he's mostly a straightforward villain with no element of comedy.
* VillainHasAPoint: His statement to Pit about "what is the difference between reincarnating souls and removing souls from existence?" does make sense in retrospect. Pit is left almost speechless.
* VillainousBreakdown: During his final battle with Pit. It's subtle, but it's there. At the beginning of the battle, he's his usual self. But as the fight wears on and Pit powers through everything he throws at him, his normally calm and smug demeanor starts to erode, which all comes to a head when Medusa attacks him, where he pretty much snaps and drops the [[FauxAffablyEvil polite facade]] altogether. However, by TheStinger, he's mostly back to his old self and even congratulates Pit on his victory.
* WalkingSpoiler: To such an extent that literally every single entry on the page was whited-out before advanced warning was given. In spite of being the villain for 64% of the game, nothing in promotional material prior to the game's release or even prior to his debut in the game itself indicated he even existed!
* WaveMotionGun: His strongest attack during the final battle is a powerful laser he fires from a ThirdEye on his forehead. It causes a NonStandardGameOver if Pit fails to fill the gauge before he fires.
* WolverineClaws: One of his attacks in his first fight with Pit has him swiping his claws at Pit.
* WombLevel: Level 23 is his digestive tract, which [[AllThereInTheManual according to the Idol description is apparently an alternate dimension.]]
* WorthyOpponent: Appears to acknowledge Pit as one if TheStinger is any indication.
* WouldHitAGirl: Medusa learns this the hard way.
* XanatosGambit: If Pit kills the Phoenix, then Hades can start his war. If Pit spares the Phoenix, then the Phoenix will attack humanity. And from then on it doesn't matter who kills humans, whether it be his own forces, Viridi's forces, or even Palutena's forces when she's possessed by the Chaos Kin. Either way, he gets what he wants: souls.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Said almost verbatim to Medusa as he kills her.
* YourSoulIsMine: His [[JustForPun soul]] motivation. The only purpose he has for starting a war and sending the Underworld Army to massacre everyone is to amass a large collection of souls. (That, and according to Hades they taste delicious.)

A devil dog with two heads. Its body is wrapped in fire and spits out bullets of magma energy.

* AttackAttackAttack: His strategy in the original ''Kid Icarus'' is to fire projectiles and advance (and occasionally jump). With enough Centurions, Pit can theoretically take him out before he reaches the other side of the room.
* BreathWeapon: Can breath fire.
* BullfightBoss: In ''Uprising'', if Pit manages to dodge his ChargeAttack, Twinbellows will hit the wall and be stunned long enough for Pit to attack him.
* ChargeAttack: Twinbellows will attempt to ram Pit. On higher difficultes, it will spam this move repeatedly.
* {{Expy}}: Of Cerberus from classical Greek Mythology as both are Hellhounds with multiple heads who serve as the guardian of the Underworld. Likely also of Orthrus, the two-headed brother of Cerberus.

-->Hewdraw (Blue Head): ''"Hello there!"''
-->Hewdraw (Purple Head): ''"It's snack time!"''
-->Hewdraw (Violet Head): ''"Mm! What a tender little morsel!"''

Its body is like a smooth snake. Originally it comprised of one head and came out of water, but now it has two more heads and takes to the sky.

* AffablyEvil: They're a kind bunch of dragons. One in particular (the violet middle head) is very polite to Pit, even when he's trying to eat him. There's also one of the possible death quotes at the end of chapter 3:
-->'''Hewdraw''': Look how far you've come, Pit. I'm proud of you. (dies)\\
'''Pit''': [[LampshadeHanging Huh. You don't usually meet such nice bosses.]]
* BreathWeapon: From fireballs to laser beams.
* TheBrute: Serves as this for the Underworld Army.
* CarryABigStick: Does not use one, but the Hewdraw Club is patterned after him.
* DumbMuscle: Particularly the blue head.
* EvilBrit: The violet head has a distinct British accent.
* {{Expy}}: Of the Hydra from Greek Mythology, being serpentine monsters with multiple heads an incredible regenerative powers. However, their regenerative powers are somewhat inverted. While Hydra can regrow its heads if they are cut off, Hewdraw's heads are capable of acting independently if severed and can regrow new bodies instantly.
* {{Flight}}: Somehow is able to fly despite not having any visible wings.
-->'''Pit''': He can fly?
-->'''Palutena''': [[{{Troll}} I think the only one who can't fly by himself is you.]]
* GiantFlyer: Larger than Pit, but can still keep themselves aloft.
* GracefulLoser: When defeated, the purple Hewdraw head compliments Pit and tells him how proud he is.
* HealingFactor: They can regrow a new torso in mere minutes.
* ICannotSelfTerminate: One of the heads says he wants someone to put him out of his misery when the three are bickering amongst each other.
* LaughablyEvil: Can be a riot due to their bickering. Even when separate, they provide some hilarious lines.
* MultipleEndings: Determined by the order you defeat the heads in ''Uprising''. The blue Hewdraw will scream that he's too pretty to die. The purple Hewdraw will compliment Pit before dying. And the red Hewdraw will attempt to say something, but will explode before he can.
* MultipleHeadCase: Has three heads that have their own distinct personality, causing them to constantly bicker and argue with each other. Their bickering can get so bad that their sentences become impossible to process as they talk over each other.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: A three-headed, talking dragon whose heads can act independently of the main body and each have their own distinct personality.
* SoProudOfYou: The "nice" head says this after Pit beats him.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: Hewdraw Reborn would be a lot harder to fight against if he didn't keep spawning fireballs you can shoot to get him out of the water.
* TailSlap: Hewdraw Reborn can swipe its tail at Pit.
* TalkingAnimal: A talking dragon.
* WhoNeedsTheirWholeBody: Hewdraw's heads are capable of surviving on their own if they are decapitated.
* {{Yandere}}: The purple Hewdraw when under the influence of Palutena's monster pheromones.

[[folder:T(h)anatos, God of Death]]
!!!Voiced by: Eiji Ito (JP), Danny Mann (EN)[[quoteright:274:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_thanatos_artwork_948.png]]

--> ''"The extra H is for Hamazing!"''

The God of Death. He's a bit on the crazy side.

* AffablyEvil: Really, working for the Underworld Army is the only thing that makes him evil. He's actually quite nice and personable, if not eccentric.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Has dark green skin.
* AntagonistTitle: ''Thanatos Rising''.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: As the God of Death, he gets perks like evil powers, health insurance... and free soda.
* AscendedExtra: In the original game, he was just a snake that lived in Medusa's hair. Uprising reveals that he's the god of death, and a shapeshifter.
* BattleAura: In Chapter 14, he takes on Phosphora in the form of a "glow dragon"; unlike his other forms, it's a dragon-shaped aura that he uses to defend and attack rather than a complete transformation. Thanatos's true form is clearly visible in the dragon's head.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Though hammy and comedic, he's far from harmless. Case in point in ''Thanatos Rising'' where he effortlessly defeats a human army and takes control of one of their Trojan Horse Tanks, and almost manages to defeat Pit soon after.
* BigBad: Of the ''Thanatos Rising'' anime short.
* BrilliantButLazy: He is a very effective fighter, and is Medusa's second-in-command, but his lazy and rather carefree nature gets in the way of his job (i.e. sending Reaper subordinates while relaxing in the Sea-floor Palace.)
* BunnyEarsLawyer: He's utterly wacky, yet he's ''somehow'' Medusa's second-in-command. Pit and Palutena even Lampshade it.
-->'''Pit''': How did ''this'' guy get to be Medusa's second-in-command?
-->'''Palutena''': Beats me. Seniority?
* ButtMonkey: To put it simply, even ''Pit'' shows no respect for him.
* {{Camp}}: Possibly the campiest villain in the whole show.
* CloudCuckoolander: Let's just get it out there: Thanatos is ''nuts''.
* ConfusionFu: His shapeshifting powers combined with his wackiness makes him very unpredictable in battle.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: A complete and utter wackjob, but he's far from harmless. In Ch 14, he was able to hold his own against Phosphora and though he lost, was able to weaken her enough for Pit to fight her. And in ''Thanatos Rising'', he shows just how dangerous he can be when he pus his mind to it.
* CuteLittleFangs: Has one on the right side of his mouth, but it's barely noticable.
* DeathIsCheap: As the god of death, he gets special privileges.
* TheDragon: He's Medusa's second in command and Hades' after he reveals himself. He even transforms into a literal dragon while fighting Phosphora.
* EvilVersusEvil: Reappears in Chapter 14 to battle Phosphora only to be defeated. Though how evil Phosphora is is debatable.
* FamousLastWords: Parodied when he dies a second time, at the hands of Phosphora:
--> "Farewell cryyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!"
* FauxAffablyEvil: Portrayed as this in ''Thanatos Rising''. His politeness is a little less sincere and his jokes are more sardonic and a bit sadistic.
* ForTheEvulz: In ''Thanatos Rising'', he tries to destroy a human city for no other reason than pure amusement. Granted, he could have been harvesting souls for the Underworld, but he seemed to take a little too much enjoyment out of it.
* GagLips: Has big, blue lips to go with his overall clown motif.
* HighSpeedBattle: Against Phosphora. He loses, but weakens her enough for Pit to fight her.
* LargeHam: Lampshaded. According to Thanatos, the extra H in his name (previously Tanatos) stands for "Hamazing".
* LargeAndInCharge: Not to the extend of Medusa or Hades, but he stands at an [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/kidicarus/images/f/fa/Kiuheight.png an impressive 330cm]], or 10'10".
* LaughablyEvil: His childish personality makes him quite entertaining.
* MadeOfIron: Notably in that he takes quite a large amount of punishment in his appearances as an enemy whether his opponent is Pit or Phosphora. Against Pit, Thanatos fights the strongest fighter that Palutena has and continues fighting by alternating between different forms despite the continuous damage he sustains without slowing down. He then takes this even further when he fights Phosphora in Chapter 14 where his opponent is ''much'' faster than him and possibly just as powerful despite the the fact that he's a god and she isn't. To make up for a lack of speed to match, he appears to be absurdly durable as his fight against Phosphora lasts for nearly 80% of the entire air battle at the least and he just [[{{Determinator}} doesn't give up]]. Pit even comments that Thanatos is much faster than ever before and as it shows, the God of Death is able to keep pace with his opponent. In the end, the entire fight arguably worked out for Hades (being able to weaken the Forces of Nature by defeating their commander) since Thanatos can be revived by Hades, Phosphora is now at quite a disadvantage being heavily weakened since she has to retreat to recover. To put it forward, Thanatos fought Phosphora in an [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown intense match]] where they both fought with everything they had and he was just about the only counter that Phosphora possibly had at that point and managed to inflict enough damage to make the Forces of Nature weak enough to be defeated. Pit would later fight Phosphora when she was still critically weakened and not even at her best and win due to that factor although Phosphora knew that she wouldn't have the best time.
* MadHatter: Has definite shades of this. He even [[Disney/AliceInWonderland sounds like Disney's version of him.]]
* MonsterClown: His appearance in ''Uprising'' invokes this.
* MorphicResonance: His forms has his green coloring and scarfs from his normal form.
* ObviouslyEvil: What, were you expecting the God of Death to look nice?
* PoisonousPerson: His attacks in his normal form can inflict poison status.
* PowerFloats: He's never seen walking.
* PsychopathicManchild: He's ''very'' childish, easily offended, and overly sensitive, and when things don't go his way, he [[RageQuit throws tantrums.]]
* RageQuit: invokes this trope in ''Thanatos Rising''.
* ScaledUp: During his fight against the Forces of Nature, he took the form of a [[PowerGlows Glow Dragon.]]
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Wears a large scarf.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: He changed his name from Tanatos to Thanatos, because the extra H is, well, you already know by now.
* SimpleStaff: Does not use one, but the Thanatos staff is patterned after him.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: Thanatos would be unstoppable in his urn form if he didn't spit out skulls for Pit to knock back at him.
* TopHeavyGuy: His torso is larger than his legs. That's probably why he floats around.
* VillainBall: In ''Thanatos Rising'', instead of killing Pit when he had him trapped, he decides to toy with him by throwing bombs at him. Pit beats him by shooting at the cogs, bringing the Trojan Horse Tank down on his head.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: His main superpower and the reason why he was able to turn himself into a snake in the first game. During his battle in ''Uprising'', he transforms into: [[GiantFootOfStomping a giant foot]], [[BatOutOfHell a bat that can split into swarms of smaller bats]], [[MatryoshkaObject a matryoshka doll]], [[TalkingWeapon a sword and spears]], and a [[TennisBoss jar]].
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Seems to be wearing overalls.
* WhyDontYaJustShootHim: What ultimately leads to his defeat in ''Thanatos Rising.''
* TheWorfEffect: When Hades revives him to fight against the Forces of Nature, Thanatos is defeated by Phosphora. He does, however, weaken Phosphora significantly.

-->''"Do I look like a strategy guide? In case you haven't noticed...THIS ISN'T THE ASK AUNTIE PANDORA HOUR."''

The Goddess of Deceit. She likes to confuse whoever tries to enter her realm. She is allied with Medusa.

* AndIMustScream: If the dialogue in Ch. 22 is any indication, she was trapped in Dark Pit's wings for three years and ''fully aware the entire time'', though she seems more concerned that Dark Pit took her powers than she was about being trapped in his wings.
* ArchEnemy: Found one in Dark Pit.
* AscendedExtra: Was the [[HardLevelsEasyBosses easiest Boss]] (and boss of the next-to-last level) in the original ''Kid Icarus''. Now plays a far bigger role in ''Uprising''.
* BadassFingerSnap: The way she activates some of her spells as Amazon Pandora.
* BatmanGambit: Lured Pit to her Labrynth of Deceit to use him to create Dark Pit. Too bad her plan blew up in her face when Dark Pit rebels against her.
* BishonenLine: In ''Uprising'', she eventually assumes a humanoid form called Amazon Pandora.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Like Thanatos, she's very eccentric and a very capable fighter.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: In ''Uprising'', her eccentric behavior is what makes her level so [[MindScrew confusing.]]
* CoolSword: As Amazon Pandora, she wields a blue longsword.
* CuteBruiser: As Amazon Pandora, she's definitely easy on the eyes. But she's more than just a pretty face.
%%* DarkActionGirl: Especially as Amazon Pandora.
%%* DeadpanSnarker: ''Constantly''. She's on par with Viridi here.
* TheDisembodied: Amazon Pandora's idol states that she was one of the Underworld's greatest warriors, but had an accident that cost her her body, forcing Pandora to take the form of a pure manifestation of her will.
%%* FangsAreEvil: In spirit form.
* FauxAffablyEvil: She seems jaded and sarcastic at first glance, brushing aside things with a nonchalant attitude. But as her idol says, it's all an act and she revels in trickery and deception.
* TheFightingNarcissist: As Amazon Pandora. One of the first things she does after regaining her original form is to show off her new body. Doesn't stop her from fighting Dark Pit though.
* FloatingMask: Her original design was reminiscent of a sentient mask.
* GreatGazoo: She isn't called the Goddess of Deceit for nothing.
* GodOfEvil: The Goddess of Calamity and Disasters.
* HeartBeatDown: Can fire heart-shaped projectiles and create heart-shaped barriers as Amazon Pandora.
* HotGoddess: Not that one would expect looking at her spirit form, but as Amazon Pandora, she's a really beautiful and sexy young woman.
* ISurrenderSuckers: Pulls this in both her fights.
** In her fight with Pit, after taking damage, she seemingly surrenders and allows Pit to destroy the Mirror of Truth. In reality, it was a BatmanGambit to create Dark Pit. Sadly for her, her plan quickly falls apart when Dark Pit turns on her.
** During her fight with Dark Pit, after taking damage, she falls to the ground. However it's a trick as after a few seconds, she'll get to her feet and fire off heart-shaped energy blasts.
-->'''Pandora:''' You got me... ...Just kidding!
%%* LaughablyEvil:

* MagicKnight: As Amazon Pandora. She fights with a sword and various deceptive magic.

* NightmareFace: In her spirit form, her eyes and mouth are huge and somewhat demonic-looking. Quite a fair cry from her cute and pretty face as Amazon Pandora.
* PlayingWithFire: In her spirit form, she attacks by spitting out fireballs.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: As Amazon Pandora, Her eyes go from purple to red.
* RecurringBoss: You fight with her twice in ''Uprising'' with Pit and one more time as Dark Pit in both forms.
* SanityStrengthening: Discussed by her at the start of Chapter 5's ground section, where she claims she is now trying to have a more balanced mentality. Her idol states that while she sounds jaded, it's just an act.
* ShowingOffTheNewBody: The first thing she says when she transforms into [[HotGod Amazon Pandora? "Eat your hearts out."]]
* StrawNihilist: Implied by this comment:

* SwordBeam: As Amazon Pandora, she can fire five of these from her sword.
* TechnicolorFire: She seems to be made of blue fire in her redesign. But it turns into red fire when she's angry.
* TurnsRed: Literally. When angered, her spirit form goes from blue to red.

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_1rsz_gaol_updatedart_4505.png]]

-->"Ah, Palutena's little messenger boy. And Magnus, it's always a pleasure!"

A warlord who is aligned with Medusa. In the past, she was a childhood friend of Magnus, and the two fought monsters together as part of the same mercenary group.

* AllThereInTheManual: According to her Idol, she volunteered to spy on the Underworld Army, but was captured and forced to wear the cursed armor of a dark lord, making her into nothing more than a slave to the very evil she had fought against.
** But then it seems she has gained complete control over the cursed armor when you fight her and Magnus, complete with a total removal of the distorted, evil voice. It appears that Pit and Magnus quite literally [[BeatTheCurseOutOfHim beat the curse out of her or that Dyntos just made her a new set.]]
* BarrierWarrior: Uses a barrier that will reflect ranged attacks.
* CastingAShadow: Attacks with various blasts of dark energy.
* CoolSword: The Gaol blade is modeled after her.
* DemonicPossession: The dark lord's armor took control over her after the Underworld Army forced her to wear it.
* DualBoss: With Magnus late-game.
* DubNameChange: From "Gainas" in the Japanese version.
%%* EvilSorcerer
* {{Expy}}: Guts and Griffith had a similar affair to Magnus and Gaol's in {{Berserk}}. Magnus has a similar personality, looks, occupation, fighting style and weapon to Guts so the comparison between Gaol and Griffith AKA Femto is a pretty easy one. To play on the players' expectations, Gaol is quite different to Griffith and more closely resembles Casca.
* FrickinLaserBeams: The dark lord can do a sweeping laser attack.
* GetBackHereBoss: Is quite difficult to pin down as Gaol constantly moves around the room.
* GreenEyes: When wearing the armor. It's unknown if she actually has green eyes as her eyes are closed when she's revealed to be human.
* HornedHumanoid: When wearing the armor.
* LightningBruiser: Is quite fast, despite the heavy armor, and is strong enough to send Magnus and Pit flying with a spin of the cape.
* MeaningfulName: Her name is another word for "Prison" and an alternate spelling of the word "Jail", hinting at her being imprisoned in the armor. It also spells gal if you take out the o.
* {{Parody}}: WordOfGod states that she (while possessed by the armor) is a parody of RPG final bosses.
* SamusIsAGirl: Her real face even looks like Samus's! It's even more fitting considering she's inside a set of armor. Interestingly, in-universe, Pit seems to only be surprised that she was human.
%%* SpikesOfVillainy
%%* TinTyrant
* TokenHuman: Out of the Underworld Army.
* UseYourHead: An effective tactic when you have a helmet with horns on it.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Has this when first seen. Subverted by her second appearance as it was a voice syntheiser to disguise that she was a woman. Her voice is more feminine, but still slightly distorted.

Leader of the Reapers and the boss of the Reaper's Fortress, The Great Reaper apparently sends its subordinates to collect the souls of the humans fighting in the war.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: His head and toes, and more obviously, the crack in his skull during the last leg of the fight.
* DubNameChange: From the considerably less threatening "''Big'' Reaper" in the Japanese version.
* EyeBeams: Can fire these at Pit.
* FlunkyBoss: He does summon Reapettes, but only if he lands a hit on Pit with his EyeBeams.
%%* GreenEyes
* KingMook: Essentially a far bigger, far stronger version of the normal Reaper.
* MightyGlacier: Hits like a tank, but moves as slowly as one too.
* PowerTattoo: Does not use one, but the Great Reaper Palm is patterned after him.
* ShockwaveStomp: One of its attacks.
* SicklyGreenGlow: Its eyes and its necklace.
* SinisterScythe: And it's as big as its body.
%%* SpinAttack
* VillainsOutShopping: His idol states that in his free time, he actually shinks himself to normal size to take strolls in his fortress. When he is first seen, he actually looks like a regular reaper, then grows to his giant size after noticing Pit.
* YourSoulIsMine: He was an elder Reaper that gained his power by eating a large amount of souls.

[[folder:The Underworld Gatekeeper]]
A powerful robotic member of The underworld forces, that, true to its name, guards the entrance to the Underworld.

%%* HumongousMecha
* ImmuneToBullets: Its body is immune to Pit's weapons, and is only taken out when Dark Pit kicks its head.
* {{Leitmotif}}: A simple, yet fast-paced and chaotic melody by Creator/MotoiSakuraba.
* LightIsNotGood: Is the most vibrant colored member of the Underworld.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Hades's Heart]]
An odd entity representing Hades's heart, existing within Hades.

* ArmlessBiped: Though it does seem to have two blood vessel-like tentacles, it never uses them for anything or even seems to control them at all.
* CelestialBody: Its body coloration looks like a night sky, deep blue with small white "stars". Has an UnmovingPlaid effect to it, as well.
* ChasingYourTail: the design of the stage regularly invokes this, regardless of who's attacking.
* GetBackHereBoss: When it's not directly attacking Pit, it's mindlessly speeding around its maze while sending exploding clones at him.
* CutenessProximity: Pit can't help but find it ''adorable'' during the boss battle.
* LightningBruiser: Moves surprisingly fast considering its rather stubby legs, especially when it TurnsRed.
* MadeOfExplodium: Its clones. The heart itself also explodes upon defeat
* MesACrowd: Its most potent ability is to create exploding clones of itself.
* OrganAutonomy: It's a heart that seems to act independently of Hades himself, and Pit's destroying it doesn't seem to hinder Hades much.
* TurnsRed: Goes on a rampage towards Pit each time it recieves damage.
* TheVoiceless: One of the few bosses to not speak at all.

!!!Underworld Soldiers

[[folder:Eggplant Wizards]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_eggplantwiz_artwork_6484.png]]
These enemies place a spell on Pit to turn him into an eggplant.

* AscendedExtra: Was just another Underworld Enemy in the original. Due to his legendary annoying ability, he not only landed a main cast role in ''Captain N: The Game Master'' (unlike Medusa, who was only in one episode as a {{Mook}}), but also made it to the front cover ''Of Myths And Monsters.''
* BlackMagic: Laugh all you want, but being turned into an Eggplant is still considered a {{Curse}}.
%%* {{Cyclops}}
* DemotedToExtra: in ''Uprising'' he's back to being just an EliteMook, only now with his eggplant attacks considerably nerfed. He still manages to gain some commercial representation through the trailers, however.
%%* GagLips
* {{Nerf}}: His infamous spell is a bit less dangerous in ''Uprising'', as it simply wears off after a while rather than forcing Pit to frantically run to a hospital. Justified, though, as Palutena is watching over Pit and uses her powers to shorten the time Pit is an eggplant.
** But to sort of counter this loss, the spell now acts like a grenade, turning Pit into an eggplant if caught in the radius and also doubling as a sort of pseudo-Poison effect.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Reapers and Reapettes]]
[[quoteright:289:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/289px-ReaperNew_3226.png]]
Skeletal members of the Underworld that lead souls of the dead to their resting place. They are easily excitable and summon small versions of themselves, called Reapettes, when an opponent is spotted.

%%* AlwaysChaoticEvil
* DarkIsEvil: While it's their job to lead souls to the underworld, Palutena notes that [[AlwaysChaoticEvil they're still evil and crazy.]]
%%* EliteMook
%%* TheGrimReaper
%%* {{Psychopomp}}
%%* SinisterScythe
* SissyVillain: In the original game, they seem to blow a total hissy fit and summon their Reapettes by kicking and screaming frantically.
* TookALevelInBadass: Elevated to borderline-DemonicSpider status in ''Uprising'', as not only do they actively attack Pit now, but they take a ''lot'' of hits to bring down and they ''hit like a truck''.
* VillainsOutShopping: Have their own specialized hot-spring for their fortress.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tempura Wizard]]
[[quoteright:288:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_tempura_final_2322.png]]
An underworld monster that has shrimp tempura for a head and sits in a rice bowl. He can turn his enemies into tempura with his spells as well, chasing them and, if caught, eating them.

* BizarreAlienBiology: Has a single eye on his tempura head, that is somehow replaced by a mouth when he starts chasing his victims.
%%* DeepFriedWhatever
* TheRival: To the Eggplant Wizard.
* ScaryBlackMan: His head aside, the Tempura Wizard has a brown skin-tone.
* SlouchOfVillainy: When not chasing angels-turned-tempura, he casts spells while reclining on a rice bowl.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Subverted. It ''looks'' like he'd be one to the Eggplant Wizard, but is in fact quite a bit worse: being turned into a tempura tires you out instantly upon trying to run, and letting him catch and eat you is a OneHitKill.
* ToServeMan: In a fashion; he turns his victims into shrimp tempura before eating, and Pit isn't entirely human to begin with. That doesn't necessarily mean he hasn't done this with humans before, though.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Take a guess.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: While wearing tempura pants, naturally.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Others]]
* AffablyEvil: Should one watch what they do before shooting them, they can be pretty amusing (i.e. being tossed about by wind, swimming in the Ocean, watching characters fight, riding on Monoliths, being hit by things and shot at, and doing InterfaceScrew.)
%%* AlwaysChaoticEvil
* AndIMustScream: Collins are Centurions that have been taken over by Phils, toxic worms that live inside in their bodies.
* AscendedExtra: All the monsters are represented by the Keepah enemy in the story section of the NES manual.
* BlatantLies: The Shulm enemy is described as meek, compare to its actual appearance [[http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/ar-cards?before=1334456644 here]].
* CoversAlwaysLie: The manual describes Uranos as a very powerful and dangerous enemy, drawing him as a fire breathing giant. In-game Uranos is a tiny and easily defeated dwarf with no special powers.
* {{Cyclops}}: More than half of the Underworld creatures are this.
%%* DarkIsEvil
* EldritchAbomination: Most of them, but one that stands out is the Clubberskull, which is sealed due to being so powerful.
* EveryoneHatesHades: Hades' roman name is used for an annoying BanditMook.
* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: Octos obviously.
* GagNose: Specknoses, which are patterned after Groucho Marx glasses.
* GiantHandsOfDoom: Snongs are a unique case, their arms only appear when summoned.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: When an Erinus splits into two, its lower half is wearing pink striped boxers.
* TheGoomba: The winged snakes called Shenum fill this role.
** The enemy Shulm also looks similar to a Goomba, particularly in the original NES game.
* TheHeartless: In Uprising; the underworld forces are created from souls of the dead, and tons of souls are required to create just one creature.
* HelpfulMook: For a brief while during the Aurum invasion arc, though they still attack Pit when unoccupied.
* KickChick: Having only legs to attack with, Mimicuties are this by default.
* TakenForGranite: Ingiots inflict this as a status effect.

!Forces of Nature

[[folder:Viridi, Goddess of Nature]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/MakikoOhmoto (JP), Creator/HyndenWalch (EN)
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_viridi_artwork_3248.png]]

-->''"Good riddance, human scum! The world's better off without you!"''

As the title implies, she's the proclaimed Goddess of Nature. Desires the obliteration of mankind for their numerous offenses against nature, and proceeds to act upon it once they impulsively start an international war over Hades' rumors about the Wish Seed.

* ACupAngst: Implied by this exchange between her and Palutena in Ch 22 after Pandora reveals her true form.
-->'''Viridi:''' ''Someone's'' overcompensating!
-->'''Palutena:''' Feeling a little... ''inadequate'', Viridi?
* AdmiringTheAbomination: A variant. She deeply cares for her Forces of Nature troops, referring to them as her children and even naming them herself. She seems to have a special love for her Bumpety Bombs, however.
* {{Adorkable}}: She has her moments.
* AffablyEvil: She's a colossal bitch most of the time, but she can get along with others sometimes. See FriendlyEnemy below.
* AllGirlsLikePonies: She sounds really enthusiastic when she mentions the unicorns on the lightning chariot.
* AMotherToHerMen: She outright refers to the Forces of Nature as her children.
* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type III]] given that she has a valid point about humans, but goes about correcting them in a [[GaiasVengeance highly]] [[NukeEm destructive]] [[MurderIsTheBestSolution manner]].
* AnythingYouCanDoICanDoBetter: In Chapter 18 , when she reveals that she can grant Pit the Power of Flight like Palutena.
-->'''Viridi:''' "Anything Palutena can do, I can do better!"
* ApocalypseHow: Attempts to invoke Species Extinction on humans through strategic use of her Reset Bombs.
* ArcVillain: For Chapters 11-14, where she overrides Hades as the current main threat for those chapters.
* AxCrazy: Has an unhealthy, near psychopathic hatred of humanity and is prone to frequently lashing out in anger.
* BigDamnHeroes: Pulls this off in Chapter 17 where she out of nowhere commands two of her Nutskis to stop Pit's fall by carrying a small-sized chunk of rock for him to land on. Pit tries to ask Viridi for her reason for doing so but she cuts him off and tells him to be ready to fight the Aurum. Her rescue in Chapter 17 is possibly [[{{Foreshadowing}} hinted at]] by her choice of words in Chapter 16 where she tells Pit that she's not here to ''help'' him but that keeping him alive is in her best interests (or view) for now. This is actually quite relevant as her actions as a result of Chapter 16 show up as trivial later on.
** Chapter 17 [[spoiler: has her save Pit as the above mentions. At this point, only Pit has the natural fighting instincts backed by being pretty smart which helps avoid situations where the 'brainless' mooks such as the Centurions, Underworld Forces and Forces of Nature main bulk would fail to even have a chance. By now, Pit is the only being present who has the best chances of winning so Viridi wasn't really lying when she was keeping Pit safe in Chapter 16.]]
** Chapters 18 (final segment) to Chapter 21 and most likely from then until the game ends. [[spoiler: Starting from Chapter 19, with Palutena now out of service due to the Chaos Kin, Viridi steps up to act as Pit's guide and provides him with the same help Palutena herself did prior to Chapter 18. The start of Chapter 19 has her sending in some of her own forces to assist Pit by having them fight the Underworld Forces that are attempting to stop Pit, with the bonus that she teleports them out of the fight should you try to hit them or if they are in your way of attacking another enemy before your hits actually strike them. Chapter 21 has her moment during the battle against the Chaos Kin, before it can flee once it realizes it's been spotted, Viridi quickly puts up a barrier that prevents it, Pit and Dark Pit from leaving, effectively stopping its retreat. During the battle she puts up an electro-trap in the center of the arena which you can use by cleverly baiting the Chaos Kin to dash at you and run into it instead, allowing you and Dark Pit to land a good number of needed blows should you be unable to keep up with the Chaos Kin's speed. These Chapters also seem to have some importance too her quote from Chapter 16 when asked if she was 'helping' Pit, although there was Dark Pit in this case (it took both Pit and Dark Pit to defeat the Chaos Kin though) as he wasn't present in the Aurum Arc.]]
** Chapter 23. Entirely offscreen but the words that Hades tells Pit indicates that Viridi is taking a huge risk by having her forces attack Hades in a bold and daring attempt to save Pit even when Hades by himself is by far leagues stronger than her entire army. Maybe this is why said boss is a coward during the boss battle.
* BigGood: Takes the role during Chapters 18-21 due to Palutena being BrainwashedAndCrazy[=/=]TakenForGranite. The main menu even changes to match her style.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: For humans, considering that Mother Nature herself, one of the most idolized deities in mankind, is shown to have an unhealthy hatred for them all.
* BlackAndGreyMorality: Though Viridi wants to exterminate humanity, she's also against the destruction and harvesting of souls committed by the Underworld Army.
* BlackAndWhiteInsanity: With regards to humanity. She views humans as inherently evil and destructive beings who are incapable of change.
* BrattyHalfPint: Having the appearance of an eight-year-old girl, she fits this in comparison to the other gods. To put this in perspective, when she first appears on the top screen, she's "standing" behind some mountains, and having the 3D depth turned up will show her much further in the distance than most gods - in other words, she uses forced perspective to look taller than she might usually be.
* CantTakeCriticism: In Chapter 22, Dark Pit outright tells her and Palutena that they and their "stupid wars" are just as responsible for throwing the world of balance as Hades is; while Palutena actually has the guts to admit that Dark Pit [[JerkassHasAPoint isn't entirely wrong]], Viridi is just pissed that a "little nothing" like him would dare speak to her like that.
* CatchPhrase: Doesn't actually have one, but it might as well be her snide "Ugh!" considering how often she says it.
* CatSmile: When she's gloating. Sometimes crosses over into PsychoticSmirk.
* TheCavalry: Happens offscreen, but she sends her army to attack Hades while Pit is trapped in his belly.
* CharacterExaggeration: Viridi is more of a DeadpanSnarker in the English dub than she is in the original Japanese version, where she's more of a {{Tsundere}}.
* ColonyDrop: Drops Reset Bombs on the places that are being destroyed by humans. Succeeds the first time, but it always fails later.
* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: Though Viridi doesn't merit ''all'' the blame, In Ch. 20, she does admit that the Chaos Kin scenario could've been avoided all together had she or Arlon explained the purpose of the Lunar Sanctum.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Blonde hair and gold eyes.
* CuteAndPsycho: A goddess with the appearance of an 8-year-old and a disturbing hate for humanity.
* CutenessProximity: She really, really loves her Bumpety Bombs.
* DeadpanSnarker: Doesn't come as a shock, given that ''everybody else'' is one, but she stands out among everyone else. Even Pit points out she always insults him whenever he opens his mouth.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Towards Pit anyway. As the two are forced to work together, she begins to warm up to him. Only time will tell whether this will extend to humanity as a whole.
* DubNameChange: From "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Naturé]], [[SheIsTheKing King of Nature]]" in the Japanese version.
* EnemyMine: Viridi partners up with Palutena and Hades to fight the Aurum invasion. She also helps Pit out during the Chaos Kin arc, filling in for Palutena.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: She's outright appalled when she realizes just how many souls it takes to make an army of Underworld monsters, even though those souls are those of the humans she so despises. Also, despite being a firm believer in HumansAreBastards, she nonetheless makes it clear that she sees humans as the LesserOfTwoEvils compared to the Underworld Army.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: For a given value of evil anyway. She just doesn't understand what Pit and Palutena see in humanity and frequently questions why they would fight for a species she considers inferior. At the end, after Hades is defeated, she gets into one last debate with them about humanity, but quickly storms off in annoyance when she can't convince them otherwise.
* ExplainingYourPowerToTheEnemy: A variation in that she doesn't explain her own power, but that of the one of her mooks:
-->'''Viridi''': That's a Jitterthug. Melee attacks won't hurt him at all when he's red. And when he's green, shooting him won't work! What are you gonna do ''now''?\\
'''Pit''': Uh... I guess I'll just melee him when he's green and shoot him when he's red.\\
'''Viridi''': [[OhCrap But... Oh, darn it!]]\\
'''Palutena''': [[LampshadeHanging Thanks for the advice!]]
* {{Expy}}: Of the greek goddess of harvest/nature Demeter especially since she cannot stand Hades and how if she doesn't get her way, she won't hesitate to destroy humanity.
* FantasticRacism: Towards humanity. And she's ''not'' shy about it either.
* FemmeFatalons: She states that her nails can tear the very earth and the planet asunder, but a closer look reveals her nails are that of a child. She was probably referring to the Viridi Claws.
* FlowerInHerHair: A purple one, that matches the one on her dress, because PurpleIsPowerful!
* {{Foil}}: To Palutena. Both characters help Pit out during the game and both possess similar powers, but their stances on humans are polar opposites of each other. Palutena is aware that humans are flawed, but believe that they have the potential to grow, learn, and change while Viridi believes that humans are inherently evil and destructive and incapable of change.
* FortuneTeller: Apparently, she does this service.
* FriendlyEnemy: Insults and sarcastic remarks aside, she and Pit get along pretty well when they're working together, especially in their random conversations.
* GaiasVengeance: Played viciously straight through the use of her Reset Bombs, which are tailor-made to kill humans and destroy their cities, while leaving natural habitats and wildlife alone, and then expanding into twisted forests.
* GardenGarment: Her clothing seems mostly made out of flowers and other natural materials. Fitting given her status as "Goddess of Nature".
* GoodIsNotNice: Though she gradually warms up to Pit and helps him on several occasions, her snarky and bratty attitude combined with her volatile temper makes getting along with her a bit of a chore to say the least.
* GranolaGirl: Oh dear.
-->''I use cloth shopping bags! I compost my food scraps! And I separate my garbage into fifteen types!''
* GreenEyes: In her in-game model, her eyes have a more greenish hue to them.
* GreenThumb: Comes with the title of "Goddess of Nature".
* HairTriggerTemper: It's not entirely difficult to make her angry.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: At first, she's a villain, then becomes allies with Pit and Palutena over the course of the game to defeat the Aurum and Hades. According to Dark Pit's Palutena's Guidance conversation in ''Smash 4'', after the events of ''Uprising'', she's gone back to being Pit's enemy.
-->'''Viridi''': Just because we fought together once doesn't mean we're all buddy-buddy now.
* HeelFaceTurn: That being said, however, her opinions on humans do not seem to have changed.
* HumansAreBastards: While all of the gods have this belief to some degree, she is the standout example. And this belief gets taken to dangerous extremes.
* {{Hypocrite}}:
** She claims that humans are selfish and destructive and that she must destroy them before they do further harm to the earth. [[JerkassHasAPoint While technically she has a point]], her actions are just as destructive, if not more so.
** Played for laughs in the Japanese version. She'll criticize Pit's name for being a cliche pun off of Cupid. Even though in Japan, her name is '''Nature'''. It's not even in any sort of language.
* ImmortalImmaturity: As old as the earth, but has the mentality and emotional maturity of an 8-year-old.
* ImpliedLoveInterest: It's worth noting that she goes all {{Tsundere}} for Pit eventually, and the Pit-equippable Viridi Palm is (according to it's description) only worn by those completely devoted to Viridi.
* IWasJustPassingThrough: Insists that she's only helping Pit because it's in her best interest to do. While that is true due to the circumstances, her SuspiciouslySpecificDenial makes it obvious that she really does care about him.
* {{Jerkass}}: Volatile, immature, bratty, hypocritical, and bossy. Basically the quintessential BrattyHalfPint.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Eventually turns into this with some CharacterDevelopment as she eventually warms up to Pit. However, it doesn't really apply to humanity.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Played with. Both Pit and Palutena agree that she has valid points about humans, but they both insist that her actions are completely wrong.
* KarmaHoudini: She's the only Goddess that Pit doesn't fight, most likely because she [[HideYourChildren looks like a child]]. You fight her servants instead, as well as destroying the base where she makes the Reset Bombs. While she eventually warms up and becomes friendlier to Pit, she never apologizes or is punished for killing off a considerable amount of the human population.
* KillAllHumans: Viridi believes mankind to be a blight that will ultimately destroy the world, and to save nature, she must bomb them all to hell.
* KnightTemplar: Towards the earth, justifing her actions by saying that she must exterminate the humans to save the earth from further damage.
* LittleMissBadass: The Goddess of Nature and the leader of the Forces of Nature is no more physically imposing than your average eight year old.
* LittleMissSnarker: She's little, and she's ''really'' snarky.
* MeaningfulName: "Viridi" came from the word ''viridis'' which means either green, young, fresh, lively or youthful. Considering she's the Goddess of Nature with a young appearance, you would think that it would be her Japanese name as well. [[DubNameChange It isn't]], her Japanese name is "Naturé" which is, well... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysontheTin Take a wild guess.]]
* MissionControl: During the Chaos Kin arc. After you beat the game, you can choose to switch between her and Palutena.
* MisterBig: Having the body of an eight-year-old girl, most of the cast, including Pit and her commanders, [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/kidicarus/images/f/fa/Kiuheight.png tower over her]].
* MoralityPet: Pit becomes one to her. The only explanation as to why she's never punished for her crimes is that she's developed a soft spot for him.
* NatureSpirit: The Goddess of Nature.
* NoYou: Viridi [[JerkassHasAPoint has valid points about humans]], but her biggest detriment is her inability to accept she is wrong or at least be able to justify her views without flying off the handle like Posideon. When Pit and Palutena point out that killing humanity is not the answer, she always shrugs it off, saying they're doing the same thing to the Underworld forces. [[{{Hypocrite}} Despite hating and attacking the Underworld herself]]. Later, in chapter 22, when Dark Pit tells her that she and the other gods are just as responsible for disrupting the balance as Hades is, Viridi is just pissed that a "little nothing" like him would dare to speak to her like that, contrasting Palutena, who actually admits that Dark Pit [[JerkassHasAPoint isn't entirely wrong]].
* NotMeThisTime: Does this with the Aurum, pointing out to Pit she had nothing to do with them.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In Chapter 19, after the Chariot Master dies in his fight with Pit, Viridi comforts Pit by telling him that the Chariot Master was an honorable warrior and Pit should not let his death be in vain. It's one of the rare moments where Viridi stops being a {{Jerkass}}.
* PestController: Some of the monsters in the Forces of Nature are insects.
* PimpedOutDress: One seemingly made of natural materials.
* PowerTattoo: Does not have one, but the Viridi Palm takes the appearance of a tattoo of her on the wearer's right arm.
* PreMortemOneLiner: When dropping her last reserved Reset Bomb on the Pyrrhon-controlled Aurum:
-->"Time to let nature take its course."
* PsychopathicManchild: Though more mature than Thanatos, she has her moments. Once she makes a HeelFaceTurn, the "psychopathic" part mostly leaves.
* RapunzelHair: Even when tied up in a ponytail, it's still long. Picture what it would look like untied.
* Really700YearsOld: WordOfGod states she has the body of an 8 year old, but being a goddess, she's clearly much older. She states the reason she looks so young is because she takes care of her skin. When Pit asks her how old she is, she simply states that she's immortal.
* SheIsTheKing: Her title in the Japanese game is "King of Nature".
* ShipTease: An easy to miss moment in Chapter 16 suggests she might have a soft spot for Pit. To drive it home further, the Viridi Palm is a weapon only usable by beings completely devoted to her. It's also a weapon that Pit can use. And it ''paints her face on a heart'' on his arm.
* SinisterScythe: Her staff resembles one.
* StaffOfAuthority Like all the goddesses in this game, she has one.
* StealthPun: She's the goddess of nature and refers to her minions as her children. She's mother nature.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: In her official artwork. Also extends to her troops.
* {{Tsundere}}: A fierce Type A, especially towards Pit. Whenever she helps him, she claims that it's simply in her best interest to do so. Palutena even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades it at one point.]] Outright called one in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4duhVDc1fc Japanese version]]. Localized as Little Miss Cactus.
* TheUnfought: Justified that you fight her minions and commanders, and that from Chapter 15 on, there's always bigger threats that end up drawing Viridi into battling ''with'' you.
* WolverineClaws: Does not use any, but she possibly created the Viridi Claws.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Decides to end human-related devastation of nature [[ApocalypseHow by ending the human race itself]]. Both Pit and Palutena admit that she has a valid point, but insist that Viridi is going about it the wrong way.

[[folder:Cragalanche the Mighty]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_600px-cragalanche_artwork_8322.png]]

-->''"..."''

A rocky golem-like being that is an extremely loyal servant of Viridi's. He is one of the leaders of her forces, similar to how Pit leads Plautena's forces.

* {{Acrofatic}}: He's quite mobile for a giant rock monster. One attack even has him briefly ''hovering in midair''.
* AntiVillain: He only attacks Pit out of loyalty for Viridi.
* AttackItsWeakPoint: His glowing butthole.
* {{BFG}}: Does not use one, but a weapon called the Cragalanche Cannon is modeled after him.
* TheBrute: Of the Forces of Nature.
* BullfightBoss: Pit has to get behind him to AttackItsWeakPoint.
* ChargeAttack: One of his moves has him charging at Pit like a meteor.
* DeathFromAbove: This is how he is introduced. Fittingly, his idol states that he tends to arrive on the front lines like a meteor. One attack during the fight has him attempting to body slam Pit.
* DishingOutDirt: His main method of attack is manipulating rocks.
* DubNameChange: From "Rocka" in the Japanese version.
%%* ElementalPowers
* GiantHandsOfDoom: One of his attacks has him enlarging his right hand to perform a MegatonPunch at Pit.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: Has glowing red and unblinking eyes.
* MagmaMan: Some of his other attacks involve throwing rocks of molten magma and charging at Pit like a meteor.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: Nearly all of his attacks expose his weak point, and the ones that don't actually have weak points so they can be stopped.
* TunnelKing: Can burrow underground at tremendous speed to preform a {{Shoryuken}}.
* TheVoiceless: Descibed as the strong, quiet type by Viridi. She talks for him and uses HulkSpeak.
** She claims it's because he's a rock. [[WildCardExcuse Yeah, a living, battle-capable rock]].
* WhipItGood: Can turn his left hand into a whip.

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_300px-arlon_artwork_1054.png]]

-->''"Why on earth would I be attacking? I'm far too busy... ''defending'', my dear."''

An ally of Viridi. He is the commander of the Lunar Sanctum.

* AffablyEvil: He's very polite to Pit and Palutena, only fighting them to defend Viridi's property. He even considers teaming up with Palutena against Hades, refusing only on the grounds of his loyalty to Viridi.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: His skin is entirely purple.
* AntiVillain: The only reason Pit attacks him is because he sides with Viridi.
* AttackDrones: Does not use any, but a weapon called the Arlon Orbitars is modeled after him.
* BadassBookworm: Had to be to have built the Lunar Sanctum.
* BadassGrandpa: Is the oldest member of the Forces of Nature, and it has not slowed him down one bit.
* BadassMustache: A big, thick white mustache.
* BattleButler: Dresses like a regular butler and is described as such in his AR card.
* CastingAShadow: One of his powers can darken the room as you battle.
* CombatPragmatist: Most of the boss fight has him attacking Pit from the shadows.
* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: As Viridi stated, the Chaos Kin situation could have been avoided if he had just explained the purpose of the Lunar Sanctum to Pit and Palutena.
* EvilBrit: Again, not really evil, just antagonizing Pit and Palutena out of loyalty.
* TheEvilGenius: Of the Forces of Nature.
* GeniusBruiser: The creator of the Lunar Sanctum and a capable fighter despite his age.
* GetBackHereBoss: Spends the entirety of the battle moving around the room, stopping only to attack Pit. Gets even worse when he darkens the stage.
* GlassCannon: Arlon can throw many powerful energy attacks, but his slender frame and age makes him more vulnerable to attacks, which is the main reason he [[CombatPragmatist fights from the shadows]].
%%* HighClassGlass
* IGaveMyWord: His reason for not telling Pit and Palutena about the Chaos Kin; he took an oath of silence.
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: Compared to all of Viridi's troops, Arlon is pretty random in that he doesn't seem to have any sort of relation to nature itself. [[ThatsNoMoon His moon-for-a-base doesn't help]].
* LoadBearingBoss: [[LivingBattery As Arlon's energy is what powers the Lunar Sanctum]], defeating him causes the temple to collapse. And considering [[EldritchAbomination what he's]] [[SealedEvilInACan keeping sealed]], it ''really'' sucks for everyone when Pit defeats him.
* MasterOfIllusion: His level is littered with fake walls, invisible switches and floors, and walking holograms of Forces Of Nature soilders.
* MeaningfulName: Arlon the ''Serene'' fits his personality quite well. In addition, "Serene" is one letter away from "Selene", a Greek ''Moon'' goddess.
* OnlySaneMan: One of the less eccentric and wacky characters in the game.
%%* QuintessentialBritishGentleman
* TheStoic: Is always calm and never raises his voice, even in battle.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: Arlon's attacks will give away his location clearly. And even when he isn't attacking, if one looks hard enough, you can see his shadow moving in the darkness.

[[folder:Lightning Flash Phosphora]]
!!!Voiced by: Yuka Komatsu (JP), Creator/KariWahlgren (EN, ''Uprising''), Stephanie Komure (EN, ''Smash 4'')
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_457px-phosphora_artwork_4294.png]]

-->''"It's just one fight after another! Today is not my day."''

Another ally of Viridi. She specializes in lightning-based attacks.

* AffablyEvil: Really only considered to be "evil" due to her association with Viridi. She's actually quite nice and even flirts with Pit a little, which is further demonstrated by her assisting Pit with the Lightning Chariot after the Forces of Nature's HeelFaceTurn.
* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type IV]] given that like Arlon, the only reason Pit attacks her is because she's on Viridi's side.
* ArcherArchetype: Haughty, ranged specialist, graceful - all great descriptions of Phosphora's nature. Plus, the weapon that Pit gets patterned after her is a bow.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Stands out as the most powerful warrior in the Forces of Nature.
* BadassAdorable: Much like Pit, she's cute and friendly. But that doesn't mean she can't kick ass. She manages to beat Thanatos in a straight-on fight and despite being wounded and weakened, she manages to put up a decent fight against Pit. In fact, it's implied that the only reason Pit won was because she was weak from her fight with Thanatos and had she been at full power, Pit probably wouldn't have stood a chance.
* BareYourMidriff: Wears a midriff-baring tube top.
* BattleAura: When she TurnsRed.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: One minute, she's talking and flirting with you like she's your best friend. The next minute, she's frying you alive with lightning bolts.
* BloodKnight: A milder and much more tame variation. When Pit begins his rally cry, Phosphora fires a few bolts of lightning at him, interrupting his rally cry and telling him to just skip to the main act.
* BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu: She managed to defeat Thanatos in the Air Battle, but it unfortunately left her weak enough for Pit to battle her.
* CombatPragmatist: One of the very few of Pit's foes to avert TalkingIsAFreeAction by attacking him in the midst of his [[InTheNameOfTheMoon rallying cry]].
* CuteBruiser: The strongest commander of the Forces of Nature is no more physically intimidating than your average teenager.
* DarkActionGirl: Though she's more of an AntiVillain, it still fits.
* DeathFromAbove: Can call down lightning strikes from the sky during her boss battle.
* DistaffCounterpart: To some extent she's a counterpart to Pit, but for the Forces of Nature. Both are the NumberTwo to their respective goddesses, both are the strongest commanders in their armies, and both are capable of taking on gods. Moreover, the weapon patterned after her abilities is a bow, Pit's signature weapon.
* TheDragon: For Viridi.
* DubNameChange: From "Eleca" in the Japanese version.
* EvilVersusEvil: Her introduction invokes this with Thanatos, where Palutena ends up wondering [[OhCrap if Pit'll have to fight both of them at once.]]
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Invoked. Phosphora herself says in her debut chapter that she wasn't going to have a great day after reading Viridi's fortune. [[JustForPun Naturally]], she gets taken down.
* {{Flight}}: Can fly through the air at incredible speed.
* GadgeteerGenius: A largely InformedAbility, but the Electro Trap's idol descrpiton states that she developed an earlier model while in the Thunder Cloud Temple...
* GeniusBruiser: Which would make her this by default.
* GetBackHereBoss: Constantly moves around the room, even teleporting on occasion, though she'll also try to close the gap with powerful [[KickChick kick attacks]].
* GroundPound: One attack during her boss fight has her punching the ground to create a dome-shaped explosion of electricity.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: She has blonde hair and is a pretty nice girl.
* HandwrapsOfAwesome: Wears black handwraps on her wrists and feet.
* HiddenDepths: See GadgeteerGenius above.
* HighSpeedBattle: Against Thanatos.
* InformedFlaw: Her trophy in ''Smash 4'' states that she's not a good singer.
* LightningBruiser: Pun aside, she's fast as lightning and her electrical powers make her a potent threat.
* LivingBattery: Serves as this for the Thunder Cloud Temple. Defeating her destroys the temple.
* LoadBearingBoss: [[LivingBattery As her energy is what powers the Thunder Cloud Temple]], defeating her causes the temple to collapse.
* MsFanservice: She complements this with her outfit and flirty nature.
* {{Meaningful Name}}: Unlike Viridi, whose Japanese name has less creative input to it, Phosphora's name in both English and Japanese has more to it than one might think. Her English name came from ''phosphorus'', which means "light-bringer" while her Japanese name, "Eleca," seems to be a combination of ''Electra'', a mythological nymph, and ''Erica'', a type of flower. Eleca (and even more so Electra) also sounds similar to "electric."
* NotQuiteDead: Ch 20 reveals she survived her fight with Pit in Ch. 14, helping him alongside Viridi.
* NumberTwo: To Viridi.
* PowerOfTheStorm: Implied to be able to command storms.
%%* PurpleEyes
* ScarfOfAsskicking: A long blue scarf that flows whenever she uses her powers.
* ShipTease: She teases Pit and calls him cute. Pit's [[LuminescentBlush reaction]] doesn't help.
* ShockAndAwe: [[CaptainObvious well, duh.]] Aside from just zapping people, Phosphora can also turn into a bolt of lightning for quick transport.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: And to complement this, she has vines tangling some parts of her body. [[TheDragon This only enforces her dragon status to Viridi]].
* SuperSpeed: [[JustForPun She moves like lightning]].
* TurnsRed: "[[BattleAura Charging complete~!]]"
* ValleyGirl: Slips into this from time to time.
%%* WhoWearsShortShorts
* WorfHadTheFlu: Her idol states that she was still wounded from her fight with Thanatos when she fights Pit, hence her not displaying the same amount of power she did before.
* YellowLightningBlueLightning: Her lightning is in both colors, as well as [[PurpleIsPowerful purple lightning]].
[[/folder]]
----
[[folder:Forces of Nature Soldiers]]
Creatures that are created by and serve Viridi, like their name suggests they are made with natural resources.

* BigCreepyCrawlies: The Megontas are large pillbugs.
* FluffyTheTerrible: Most of the Forces of Nature soldiers have jarringly cute names. Case in point: Bumpety Bomb and Boom Stomper. Viridi named them herself.
* HelpfulMook: They fight with you during the Aurum invasion.
** Nutskis in particular carry a platform for Pit to stand on.
* PuppeteerParasite: One of the kinds of creatures faced is a fungus that has killed and taken over a very large Rhino beetle.
* SuperPersistentPredator: According to its idol description, once angered it takes three days for a Clobbler to calm down. [[GameplayAndStorySegregation (It actually does so quite quickly if you leave it alone.)]]
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: There are several troops that behave like reskins of Underworld enemies, such as Nutskis when compared to Monoeyes.
** Clobblers are similar to Clubberskulls in that they're harmless until attacked, at which point they become very dangerous. Clobblers will at least walk around when nonhostile, albeit aimlessly.

[[folder:The Space Pirates]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_pirate1_artwork_6847.png]]
A race of aliens that steal constellations from the heavens to sell. Unfortunately, they were caught up in the war due to having mistakingly taken the three Sacred Treasures which were hidden in one of them.

* ArmCannon: Space Pirate Commandos and Sniper Pirates, their guns take up their entire fore-arms.
* BadassNormal: Unlike other enemies in the game, the space pirates have no real powers of their own, but are willing and able to punch the living daylights out of you, snipe you, and blow you up with rocket lauchers. They can even take down underworld goons if you allow them to (some of the best examples being two snipers that are able to kill a [[DemonicSpider Clubberskull]], as well as a lone Commando squaring off against a Snowman).
* ColdSniper: Space Pirate Snipers, whose shooting animation is rather identical to the archetypical sniper.
%%* EnergyBeings
* EvilPoacher: Ones that steal constellations, no less.
* MonumentalTheft: Though, considering that this universe is largely based on mythology, it might be a bit more believable that they can steal constellations.
* PowerFist: All of them, but most prominant in the Yellow space pirates (who fist-fight); where their idol description states that they have exoskeletons, making natural gauntlets on their hands.
%%* SpacePirates:
* ThirdEye: Snipers have these to make up for sight lost when in their sniping position.
* TooDumbToLive: Averted with Snipers, some don't seem to realize you need to be hidden from sight, and/or out of reach for sniping to work. Some however, like the two that fight the Clubberskull, at least try to stay out of their opponents reach by standing on higher platforms, the key word being "try". Early on in the stage, there is an explosive barrel in a corridor. Naturally, the first space pirate runs right to it and starts attacking Pit from that spot.
* VillainsOutShopping: The pirates have a hotspring on board their ship; when you come across it, a Commando is chilling out there.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Space Pirate Captain]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_1431px-spacepiratecaptain_798.jpg]]
The Leader of the Space Pirates, the Captain pilots his starship with his crew, stealing stars that make constellations in the Galactic Sea. He keeps the Three Sacred Treasures with him after stealing the constellation they were hidden on.

* BadBoss: He is weaker than his subordinates, and somehow managed to take charge through sheer bossiness. Thus, he is not very popular amongst the crew.
* BaitAndSwitchBoss: He is eaten by the Galactic Fiend Kraken.
%%* BitCharacter
* BitPartBadguys: The only reason he's brought into the story is due to him having the Three Treasures.
* NoIndoorVoice: He spends most of his time screaming into a megaphone.
* RedAlert: While working your way through his ship, he can be heard in the background, shouting in alien tongues, probably giving orders to his crew on how to face the threat of both Pit and the Underworld Army.
* TheUnfought: Right as Pit gets to him, the Galactic Fiend Kraken makes him into a quick snack.
* TheUnpronounceable: His idol states that his true name is impossible for human tongues to pronounce.
* WickedCultured: His armour is the most decorated and colourful out of the crew, but that may just be natural coloring.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Galactic Fiend Kraken]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_galactickraken_artwork_3876.png]]
A monstrous leviathan that hunts in the Galactic Sea, It eats the Space Pirate Captain and decides that Pit is just too good a morsel to pass up on.

* CombatTentacles: Massive ones that Pit has to shoot down.
* EldritchAbomination: The only thing it doesn't seem to pose a threat to are the gods.
* EyeBeams: Can fire these at Pit.
* FlyingSeafoodSpecial: Yes, SpaceIsAnOcean, but there's no water around. So we've got a kraken that can breathe and maneuver through the vacuum of space, somehow.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: In the middle of an assault on space pirates who had taken one of the Three Sacred Treasures, Pit expected to fight their captain, not a giant squid. {{Lampshaded}} by Palutena.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: An odd variation, there are glowing spots on its eyes that shift position constantly in a pattern; and in addition its eyes glow for a second before one of its attacks.
* KrakenAndLeviathan: Of the intersellar variety.
* MakingASplash: Even though it lives in space, it can shoot water from its mouth.
* PowerFist: Does not use one, but a gauntlet called the Kraken Arm can be acquired.
%%* SuperPersistentPredator
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pseudo-Palutena]]
A copy of Palutena brought about by Dyntos, she considers herself beautiful, even when you reveal her comically disgusting face.

* BossBanter: While most bosses avert being annoying by having pre-scripted dialogue, Pseudo Palutena will proceed to rattle off the same obnoxious and loud quotes and screeches throughout the whole battle. This is most likely intentionally annoying, given the rest of the game avoiding it.
%%* ButterFace
* EvilKnockoff: Of Palutena.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: There's absolutely no indication that an ugly mockery of Palutena is one of Dyntos' challenges until she suddenly appears.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Immortal Phoenix]]
A legendary and ancient bird that lives on top of a volcano. It guards the Wish Seed, which is actually a ruse set by Hades to make the humans fight each other.

* BullfightBoss: Has an attack when it rushes at you while WreathedInFlames.
* MacGuffin: Guards one in the form of the wish seed, said to grant any one wish.
%%* ThePhoenix
* PlayingWithFire: Its main method of attacking.
* PowerFist: While the Phoenix itself does not use one, a weapon modeled after it, called The Phoenix Arm, can be acquired.
* RazorWind: Its secondary attacks usually involve this.
* Stolen Mac Guffin Reveal: Too bad it's a ruse set by Hades.

* CoolSword: The Aurum Blade is patterned after them.

* HordeOfAlienLocusts: They travel from planet to planet, beckoned by destruction and chaos, and consume each one.

* NonIndicativeName: Aurum means "gold" in Latin, but they all look like they're made of silver.
* OutsideGenreFoe: They're aliens in a game otherwise based on Myth/ClassicalMythology.
* PlanetEater: Their MO is to travel devour planets and use the materials they gather to make more Aurum forces.
%%* StarfishAliens

[[folder:'''SPOILER CHARACTER''']]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chaos_kin.jpg]]
!!The Chaos Kin

-->''Everything changes, Pit... even ''Gods''''!

An ancient entity of pure evil and chaos that is accidentally released during the battle of the Lunar Sanctum. Using Palutena as its host, it seeks to plunge the world into endless conflict and chaos.

* ArcVillain: For Chapters 18 to 21.
* BewareMyStingerTail: Primarily uses its tail to steal souls, and can use it for combat purposes.
* BigCreepyCrawlies: The thing is a freakish blend of a moth, a scorpion, and a spider.
* BreakThemByTalking: While possessing Palutena, the Chaos Kin berates and insults Pit in an attempt to break his spirit.
* ChaosIsEvil: A being of chaos that desires nothing less than total destruction.
* CombatPragmatist: The Chaos Kin is not above hiding behind its possessed victims and then dragging the unexpected down with it off with it. It also loves attacking the characters from behind.
* CombatTentacles: At least during its final moments when it tried to drag Pittoo down via a TentacleRope.
* CowardlyBoss: In both of its boss fights, the only time it stops hiding and/or scurrying around for a decent length of time is when you manage to stun it.
* DefiantToTheEnd: It attempts to drag Dark Pit down with itself when defeated in the Chaos Vortex.
* DemonicPossession: It possesses Palutena, causing her to go mad and turn against humanity.
* DiabolusExNihilo: It's mentioned in-universe that nobody knows where it came from.
* DirtyCoward: It hides behind Palutena when it shows itself during the first battle (provoking Pit to outright call it one), it sends an army of enemies to do its dirty work, and it tries to escape when finally cornered and exhausted in Chapter 21. The only thing stopping it is a quick forcefield Viridi sets up around the arena.
* DubNameChange: It was known as the "Envoy of Chaos" in the Japanese version.
* DystopiaJustifiesTheMeans: The Chaos Kin seeks to spread discord and malice wherever it goes.
* EldritchAbomination: It is [[SealedEvilInACan locked away]] for its vileness, it resembles an incredibly grotesque mix of a moth, a spider, a scorpion, and a cockroach, and it eats souls, including the soul of a goddess. Its realm, the [[EldritchLocation Chaos Vortex]] is bizarre, to say the least.
* FateWorseThanDeath: It is still alive as a pile of ash, and could only be revived by possessing Dark Pit. Fortunately, Pit was able to save him, leaving the Chaos Kin trapped inside the Chaos Vortex for all eternity.
* FragileSpeedster: It's a speedy demon that can throw many quick attacks at you, but it can't take that many hits in comparison, as it has fairly low health in its boss fight.
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: The Chaos Kin's idol description outright states that it is a mindless creature who possesses nothing but the desire to cause destruction.
* GetBackHereBoss: During the air segment of Chapter 21.
* KickTheDog: Leaves Pit stranded in an inanimate object for three whole years, kidnaps and brainwashes his goddess while doing so, proceeds to mock the very things he was raised to believe in right from the same mouth of said goddess, steals Palutena's soul when Pit frees her from his control, and finally tries to possess Dark Pit in a last ditch effort to revive itself and make Pit suffer. Its whole life is basically one long string of this.
* KnightOfCerebus: While Hades is cruel and callous, he is at least, enjoyable and entertaining. The Chaos Kin and its actions are taken much more seriously with no humor to balance it out.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6AQuJkdS9A Has one]] that plays in in several sections in its StoryArc.
* MadeOfIron: Even despite looking like an oversized bug and having low health in its boss battle, it is pretty resilient. It survived a beating from Pit, taking several more hits after being shot down in the Chaos Vortex, then still had enough energy to conjure up thirteen waves of monsters. Afterwards, it had another boss battle with Pit, but then survives being turned into ash and still made one last attempt to revive itself before it was too late for it. According to its Idol description, it's still alive, just trapped in the Chaos Vortex.
* MookMaker: To an insane degree. Notably, it creates copies of Aurum enemies that were already copies of the Forces of Nature. Pit and Viridi note this redundancy.
* NearVillainVictory: In the three years between chapters 17 and 18, its not only completely taken over Sky World and its forces, but has done more damage to the human world than even ''Hades'', even managing to temporarily turn Magnus against Pit.
* OmnicidalManiac: It simply desires disorder and destruction, nothing more.
* PuppeteerParasite: Takes control of Palutena while trying to feed on her soul.
* RecurringBoss: It's the primary target in Chapter 20's fight despite Palutena being the aggressor, you engage it in aerial combat for the second half of Chapter 21's Air Battle segment, and finally you get a formal boss battle against it at the end of 21.
* SealedEvilInACan: It was sealed inside the Lunar Sanctum. The green glow escaping at the end of Chapter 13 is actually the Chaos Kin. The idol of its ash form reveals that after its bout with Pit it's now contained in the Chaos Vortex in its weakened state.
* TheSpeechless: It can only talk when it's possessing someone.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: The first time you fight it, it will sometimes wrap itself around Palutena. If it just hung on to Palutena the whole time, it would've been impossible to defeat it. And then the second time you fight it, it will sometimes try to close in on you for a melee attack, but can be foiled by an electro trap.
* TakingYouWithMe: Once Pit exorcises it from Palutena, it decides to have the last laugh by ''stealing her soul''. And it does it again by trying to take Dark Pit down with it once the two manage to get Palutena's soul back, albeit this time in an attempt to revive itself later.
* ThinkingUpPortals: Can use its tail to cleave a portal into the Chaos Vortex.
%%* VileVillainSaccharineShow: Unlike the rest of the characters in this game, the Chaos Kin itself is completely silent on its own and not over the top like the others, its actions are taken far more seriously, and has nearly destroyed the world in three years. It's just as vile as Hades, but at least he provides entertainment with his villainy.
* TheVoiceless: It can't speak on its own. But it can speak when possessing others, and when its possessing Palutena, it is ''very'' vocal, and [[BreakThemByTalking not in a good way]].
* WalkingSpoiler: Its arc marks the start of a WhamEpisode, and a big one at that.
* YourSoulIsMine: It has the ability to consume souls, and it rips out Palutena's soul in front of Pit and escapes into its home dimension.

* IAmNotLeftHanded: His entire first fight with Pit (especially shown if you go in with the Three Sacred Treasures) has him taking [[NoSell zero damage]] from said weapons and he then damages said ancient weapons to where they become unusable for the rest of the chapter (and for the remaining chapters past that point) forcing Pit to use the weapon he originally had equipped. The only major blow that Pit deals most likely agitated Hades instead of actually hurting him. Taken further in his final fight against Pit who is now using the Great Sacred Treasure, Hades true potential wasn't even achieved since he wasn't able to 'destroy the human settlements and consume their souls' to make himself stronger, literally meaning that Pit wasn't facing Hades at his [[OhCrap actual peak performance]].

** Chapter 18 in the ending scenario and most likely from then until the game ends. Starting from Chapter 18, with Palutena now out of service due to the Chaos Kin, Viridi steps up to act as Pit's guide and provides him with the same help Palutena herself did prior to Chapter 18.

** Chapters 18 (final segment) to Chapter 18 in the ending scenario 21 and most likely from then until the game ends. [[spoiler: Starting from Chapter 18, 19, with Palutena now out of service due to the Chaos Kin, Viridi steps up to act as Pit's guide and provides him with the same help Palutena herself did prior to Chapter 18.18. The start of Chapter 19 has her sending in some of her own forces to assist Pit by having them fight the Underworld Forces that are attempting to stop Pit, with the bonus that she teleports them out of the fight should you try to hit them or if they are in your way of attacking another enemy before your hits actually strike them. Chapter 21 has her moment during the battle against the Chaos Kin, before it can flee once it realizes it's been spotted, Viridi quickly puts up a barrier that prevents it, Pit and Dark Pit from leaving, effectively stopping its retreat. During the battle she puts up an electro-trap in the center of the arena which you can use by cleverly baiting the Chaos Kin to dash at you and run into it instead, allowing you and Dark Pit to land a good number of needed blows should you be unable to keep up with the Chaos Kin's speed. These Chapters also seem to have some importance too her quote from Chapter 16 when asked if she was 'helping' Pit, although there was Dark Pit in this case (it took both Pit and Dark Pit to defeat the Chaos Kin though) as he wasn't present in the Aurum Arc.]]
** Chapter 23. Entirely offscreen but the words that Hades tells Pit indicates that Viridi is taking a huge risk by having her forces attack Hades in a bold and daring attempt to save Pit even when Hades by himself is by far leagues stronger than her entire army. Maybe this is why said boss is a coward during the boss battle.

* BigDamnHeroes: Pulls this off in Chapter 17 where she out of nowhere commands two of her Nutskis to stop Pit's fall by carrying a small-sized chunk of rock for him to land on. Pit tries to ask Viridi for her reason for doing so but she cuts him off and tells him to be ready to fight the Aurum. Her rescue in Chapter 17 is possibly [[{{Foreshadowing}} hinted at]] by her choice of words in Chapter 16 where she tells Pit that she's not here to ''help'' him but that keeping him alive is in her best interests (or view) for now. This is actually quite relevant as her actions as a result of Chapter 16 show up as trivial later on.
** Chapter 17 [[spoiler: has her save Pit as the above mentions. At this point, only Pit has the natural fighting instincts backed by being pretty smart which helps avoid situations where the 'brainless' mooks such as the Centurions, Underworld Forces and Forces of Nature main bulk would fail to even have a chance. By now, Pit is the only being present who has the best chances of winning so Viridi wasn't really lying when she was keeping Pit safe in Chapter 16.]]

* TheJuggernaut: Potentially the biggest user of this trope in the entire game going by Palutena's description of Dyntos. To put it bluntly, he can recreate virtually anything and everything without any flaws for the most part[[note]]Pseudo-Palutena might be an exception[[/note]] and being able to make the copies of what he makes should they be enemies be far superior to their originals makes his actual power that's not seen even more frightening. The Great Sacred Treasure being his personal creation without it being based off of anything else as well as Pseudo-Palutena and the copy of the Immortal Phoenix, are three of his strongest creations and are no pushovers. He even managed to recreate [[OneHitKill '''ORNES''']], Underworld monsters that Pit can only defeat with the Arrows of Light and most definitely with the Great Sacred Treasure which according to Dyntos, far surpasses the Three Sacred Treasures in terms of sheer power. Yeah, Dyntos is by far the most realistically powerful being in Uprising. This isn't even getting to where Dyntos isn't really showing his true potential...seeing how Pit's battle against the recreated Space Kraken takes place in '''OUTER SPACE'''.

The Great Sacred Treasure being his personal creation without it being based off of anything else as well as Pseudo-Palutena and the copy of the Immortal Phoenix, are three of his strongest creations and are no pushovers. He even managed to recreate [[OneHitKill '''ORNES''']], Ornes]], Underworld monsters that Pit can only defeat with the Arrows of Light and most definitely with the Great Sacred Treasure which according to Dyntos, far surpasses the Three Sacred Treasures in terms of sheer power. Yeah, Dyntos is by far the most realistically powerful being in Uprising. This isn't even getting to where Dyntos isn't really showing his true potential...seeing how Pit's battle against the recreated Space Kraken takes place in '''OUTER SPACE'''.

* TheJuggernaut: The primary playable version of this trope, although it's mostly shown in Chapters 19-21 and 23-Final. This trope comes into play when Pit becomes dead serious to accomplish his objective and it turns him into a serious LightningBruiser. It's more present in his motivation and dialogue than his in-game durability and power unlike the other beings who actually prove this trope.

* RoaringRampageOfRescue: The entire description of his actions in Chapter 20 and the first part of his reasons in the following chapter. This combined with his nearly unrivaled [[{{Determinator}} willpower]] makes it almost impossible to slow him down at all. So far only the Chaos Kin was able to slow him down during his rescue mission thanks to throwing 13 waves of enemies at him without slowing down and later on at Dark Pit as well but that barely slows either of them down.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Woe to anyone who gets the sheer [[TranquilFury devotion]] and [[UnstoppableRage attention]] by pressing making him go [[BerserkButton ballistic]]. This combined with his completely monstrous [[{{Determinator}} willpower]] results in him being able to endure and come out as the victor in many battles that he normally wouldn't be able to handle alone. Although Pit's demonstration of this trope is more of a version of TranquilFury, he uses this trope so effectively when he sets his sight on an enemy he can't afford to lose to. This trope is the second half of his line of reason in Chapter 21, resulting in him trashing at least 7-8 waves of enemies by himself before losing his momentum just because he's that '''ticked off''' at the Chaos Kin. In his final battle against Hades, Pit performs this trope to the extreme by literally taking on Hades in order to kill the Underworld Ruler for his massacre of innocent lives and causing many unneeded wars.
