* [[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...]]

Self Demonstrating doesn't get wicks on the main wiki. Also, Hotter And Sexier isn't a character trope, but about a work becoming Hotter And Sexier.
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.

''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]]]].

Like A Badass Out Of Hell is being split into new tropes.
* 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.)

pimping Transflormation
** Not an animal, but Pit can be turned into a eggplant in all three of the games (though in ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' it wears off without the need for a hospital). In the [[MultipleEndings bad ending]] he is turned into a monster.

* WidgetSeries: Probably the strangest rendition of GreekMythology ever conceived. Then Pit's ''Brawl'' appearance gave an illusion of ''Zelda''-like semi-normalcy to the uninitiated... only to be completely shattered in ''Uprising'' where the quirkiness levels were cranked UpToEleven.
