** A putto is not out of place in a Greek Mythology world, and while putti in Greek myth were much different from angels, that did not stop Italian artists from treating them like angels during the renascence period, meaning the hijack predates Kid Icarus.

* MedalOfDishonor: If you beat Kid Icarus (NES) in a minimalist speed-run instead of making an honest time-consuming grind, Palutena "promotes" you to serve as some kind of Janitor because she believes that you are a lucky fraud for saving Angel Land from Medusa.

* MultipleEndings: The ending you get in the first Kid Icarus is affected by the number of hearts, weapons, hit point upgrades and strength upgrades you've collected.
** The first Kid Icarus is a rare example that '''PUNISHES''' [[SpeedRun speedrunning]]: You get the bad ending if you fail to max out any of the four categories.

* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: Averted: Pit wears a helmet in the last level of the first game, even though it wasn't one of the mentioned treasures he collected. The Silver Armor comes with a helmet in ''Of Myth And Monsters''. In ''Uprising'' and for his Final Smash in the fourth ''Smash Bros.'', Pit wears a helmet again (along with a full set of armor) due to his having collected the Three Sacred Treasures.

* EmergencyWeapon: Due to a loss in the form's mobility, ''Of Myth And Monsters'' lets Pit use hammers to defend himself if struck with the egg plant curse. This does not remove any need to get to a nurse to complete the fortress but makes the trip bearable.

* {{Minotaur}}: The Underworld fortress guardian in of ''Myth And Monsters''. Few players got by him. Those that did tended to be annoyed to learn he was an {{early bird boss}}.
* MissionPackSequel: ''Myth and Monsters'' has updated graphics but is otherwise nearly identical to the first game for the gameplay and progression.

* ShoutOut: Several enemies are named after deities and beasts from Greek mythology, though many of these names have been slightly altered (or, more likely, bungled in the translation). Also look out for [[MythologyGag creatures resembling]] [[SuperMarioBros Goombas]] (Shulm) and VideoGame/{{Metroid| 1}}s [[BilingualBonus (Komayto = Ko-meto = baby Metroid)]]. Finally, one monster is called [[Music/TheRollingStones Mick]] and takes the form of an oversized mouth with its tongue sticking out, and the worm-like Eeleye which emerges from the Collin soldiers/suits of armour is called Phil in Japan. Thus, PhilCollins.[[note]]The English version of ''Uprising'' drops the pretense and reverts the Eeleye's name back to "Phil".[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* PublicDomainSoundtrack: The Overworld theme contains a snippet of "The Girl I Left Behind". This is retained in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'' remix, but left out of the ''Uprising'' remixes.

* GodLivesInTheSky: * The [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angelic protagonist]] of the games serves the very literal Skyworld and its benevolent goddess, Palutena. The realm is overflowing with clouds, brave soldiers with [[WingedHumanoid wings]], and [[LightIsGood glowing white]] temples dedicated to Palutena. In case you forget where the good guys work after all that, every level in ''Uprising'' ends with the protagonist being surrounded by RaysFromHeaven and flying straight up towards the realm of Palutena.

Then Pit was included in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'', complete with a radical makeover, and the crowd went wild. A new title, called ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'', was released for the {{Nintendo 3DS}} in March 2012, using and expanding on the character redesigns from ''Brawl'' and giving new personalities and voices to many of the characters. The gameplay retained its shooter aspects, but shifted to a 3D third-person perspective, and gave Pit access to many more weapons and powers. Pit would then return for ''Super Smash Bros. for [=3DS/Wii U=]'', along with Palutena (in her first playable appearance) and Dark Pit, a new character from ''Uprising''; [[RecursiveAdaptation naturally]], many of the elements from that game found their way into ''Smash''. All three games were headed by Creator/MasahiroSakurai, with both the ''Smash'' and ''Kid Icarus'' series [[CanonWelding tying into each other pretty well]] at that point.
