* TheStinger: On the screen after the credits with the feather, wait a few minutes, and you'll hear Hades [[NoFourthWall destroy the remains of the fourth wall, [[LampshadeHanging hang a few lampshades]], and threaten to delete your save file (which he doesn't)]].

* LuckBasedMission: You can only get to the Zodiac chamber in Chapter 6 if Dark Pit spawns in one location, and there's a 50% chance on any given run in that chapter that he will spawn there. Fortunately, you only need to access it once.

** Chapter 16 to some extend. There is an Intensity 7 gate that drops weapons that tend to be a lot stronger than what you usually find at that difficulty. ** The Boss Rush mode is also surprisingly good at garnering idol eggs.

* PlotlineDeath: It's outright stated that gods can and often do resurrect their generals. During the final boss fight, when Pit is helpless and Hades is charging up an attack to kill him, Medusa interrupts him with a punch in the face, because she's pissed that Hades won't let her just stay dead.

In addition to the singleplayer campaign, there is a mode for collected AR (Augmented Reality) cards to battle each other, and, of course, since it's by the designer of ''Super Smash Bros'', there's a multiplayer mode. Players who preordered the game in the US got a code for a free download of [[UpdatedRerelease a 3D-remastered version]] of the original ''VideoGame/KidIcarus'', and the Nintendo Video application on the 3DS featured three short ''Kid Icarus: Uprising'' anime videos called ''Thanatos Rising'' ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUYyjgXTNGI part 1]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KckvDYoYJ2c part 2]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPdavlmvS8Q part 3]] by Creator/ProductionIG), ''Medusa's Revenge'' ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76vhiHnFiyk link]] by Creator/Studio4C), and ''Palutena's Revolting Dinner'' ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgSfIHWl-7U part 1]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAA9vL5bgC0 part 2]] by Creator/StudioShaft).

** Pit's English voice in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosBrawl'' noticeably sounds older than his original Japanese voice ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWYQx0SvVOI#t=2m36s video comparison]]). His voice got even deeper when they [[TheOtherDarrin changed his English voice actor]] for ''Uprising''.

* CreatorThumbprint: A lot of elements from ''SuperSmashBros Brawl'' and Sakurai's earlier work show up here. The "Idol Transformation" power replaces the trophy stands in ''Brawl''. Many of the enemies are EldritchAbomination-Lite and have {{portmanteau}} names. The Treasure Hunt is just like Challenges in ''Brawl'' and ''KirbyAirRide''. The menus are very reminiscent of those two games. Apparently, the difficulty slider in this game is a new one, as it Later shows up in a very similar form in ''Super Smash Bros for 3DS''.

* LateArrivalSpoiler: Two years after the release of the game comes a video introducing Palutena for ''SuperSmashBros for [=3DS=] and [=WiiU=]'' filling us in with some details such as Palutena was under mind control and fought Pit, but she's fine now, and Dark Pit is in good health too.

** Possibly. A bit of follow-up is done in ''[[SuperSmashBros Smash 4]]'', stating that Viridi still has an agenda post-''Uprising'', and that Dark Pit is now working for her for the time being. [[SequelHook Could this be leading into something?]]

Palutena's a good person...she just has a tendency to troll Pit.
** Chapter 8 sets you up to face the Space Pirate Captain. When you get to him, a Space Kraken eats him immediately, and you fight the Kraken. ** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in Chapter 5: Pandora gives up way too easily, and soon you fall into her trap, accidentally creating Dark Pit. It seems like Dark Pit is going to obey his master's orders and fight you in a MirrorMatch... but instead he joins you in beating up Pandora some more.

* BlackAndGreyMorality: The whole series falls into this category. The Underworld Army are indeed evil. However, every other force Pit deals with all have their reasons for attacking humans. Even Palutena and Angel Land are in the Grey section. Pit is the only character that sees the world in black and white and, therefore, is the only "morally good" person in the series. Except when gods, especially Palutena act this way.

* {{Foil}}: Magnus is one for Pit, even down to the designs of the two characters. Magnus is a deep-voiced adult while Pit is visually and vocally a teenager at best, has a black color scheme contrasting Pit's [[ManInWhite white]], is buff compared to Pit's "thin" frame. They are different in personality as well; Pit fights to defend the humans, while Magnus is only in it for the reward money. * Naturally, Dark Pit is this. Unlike Pit, Dark Pit's sense of humor is to be a DeadPanSnarker. And of course, his voice is deeper than Pit as well. Finally, while Pit is allied with Palutena and his army, Dark Pit is typically a loner who does whatever he wants, though he voluntarily helps Pit during his battle with Medusa. Nonetheless, he and his light counterpart eventually become friends. ** In an interesting twist, Magnus is the calm and collected one who always proceeds cautiously and intelligently. Pit always heads in guns ablazing. At one point, Pit mentions even the brains of Centurion Strongarms are muscle, to which Magnus responds "like you?" Pit doesn't completely deny it.

It does contribute to the gameplay though.
* {{Filler}}: The Aurum chapters exist for no other reason than to have the game end at Chapter 25. Nothing is advanced in terms of plot besides witnessing the awesomeness that is Pyrrhon.

* FantasyKitchenSink: The game appears to be merely based on Greek mythology at first...then Palutena sends you into space to reclaim the Three Sacred Treasures that were stolen from her by the Space Pirates. Of course, considering that this game was originally intended to be a Star Fox game, it isn't so surprising.
