* BodyHorror: Getting turned into an ambulatory eggplant? Oh, that's creepy. Particularly if you can't get to the hospital.

Added DiffLines:

* SequelDifficultyDrop: ''Of Myths and Monsters'' is a bit easier than the first game thanks to the removal of the RatchetScrolling.

Added DiffLines:

* NewGamePlus: In the NES version only, pressing "Start" at the conclusion of the end credits restarted the game but with Pit as powered up as he had been before (minus the three sacred treasures, of course).

* [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie And Then Pit Was A Monster]]: In the [[MultipleEndings bad ending]] of the first game. Oddly, it's ''[[UngratefulBastard Palutena]]'' that does it to him. Maybe this is really supposed to be the joke ending? It likely is -- that ending is actually considered the hardest to achieve in the game, since getting that ending means you have to be playing a MinimalistRun, and a minimal equipped Pit is a wimpy Pit, and the [[NintendoHard original game isn't exactly easy]]. Still, who can say? [[OhMyGods Only Palutena knows for sure...]]

A series of platformer/shooter games made by Creator/{{Nintendo}}, [[CompletelyDifferentTitle known by the title]] ''Hikari Shinwa: Parutena no Kagami''[[note]]''Myth of Light: The Mirror of Palutena'')[[/note]] in Japan. They take place in Angel Land, though largely influenced by [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Classical mythology]], in which a Goddess named SelfDemonstrating/{{Palutena}} (either a [[SpellMyNameWithAnS mistransliteration]] of "[[NatureAdoresAVirgin Parthena]]", or a portmanteau of Pallas-Athena) rules the [[FluffyCloudHeaven heavenly Skyworld]] and Medusa rules {{the Underworld}}. Medusa invades Skyworld and kidnaps Palutena which leaves her KidHero bodyguard, the erstwhile angel Pit (artistically based on the putti and Cupid), to escape from the Underworld, gather up the three sacred relics, and defeat Medusa and her legions of demons, a few of which were inspired by Greek/Roman mythology, and... life-energy sucking aliens called Komaytos, which aren't even trying to hide the fact that they're based on VideoGame/{{Metroid| 1}}s (the game was designed by ''Metroid'' creator GunpeiYokoi, used the same engine, most of the development was done by Toru Osawa who also worked on ''Metroid'' and, in international releases of the first game (except the ''3D Classics'' UpdatedRerelease, which has a save feature worldwide), similar password systems are used for resuming games).

* HotterAndSexier: [[SelfDemonstrating/{{Palutena}} Three guesses as to who got this treatment over time]]. Oh yeah, and Medusa too.

** The items Pit needs to collect on his quest are called the Three Sacred Treasures (there's four of them; the Light Arrows and Wings of Pegasus are in both games, but the Mirror Shield was replaced by the Silver Armor in ''Of Myths and Monsters'', though it seems some kind of armor was part of the original set anyway) While they're not '''[[Myth/JapaneseMythology the]]''' [[PublicDomainArtifact Three Sacred Treasures]], the naming convention for the set of items was probably intentional.

** Surprisingly it has a relation to the Icarus from Mythology. Icarus was a human who attempted to fly with wings made of wax, and died because he flew near the sun which melted the wax. Pit can't fly. That's... the only relation you can get.

Pit can't fly. That's... the only relation you can get.get in the first games of the series. ''Uprising'' has Pit able to fly for a 5 minutes or less, or else his wings would hypothetically burn up, somewhat like the namesake. [[spoiler: That is exactly what happens when he demands more air time in order to [[HeroicSacrifice save Pittoo]]]].

* EscapedFromHell: This is how the first and second games start Pit has fallen into Hades and must fight his way back up.



* LikeABadassOutOfHell: Pit. (Actually it's the Underworld, but trope still applies.)
