Palutena SSB4
Oh I'm not here to save you, Pit. I'm here for a little... ah, Divine Intervention.
~ Palutena making her entrance into Super Smash Bros.


Palutena is the Goddess of Light and protector of the Human World. She spends her first few appearances being kidnapped by Medusa, but takes a more active role in Kid Icarus: Uprising, where she serves as a teasing advisor for Pit and is even fought as a boss at one point.

In addition, she has held her own against the likes of Pit on one occasion and has a tendency to plan out most of his battles by directing him throughout his adventures. Like Pit, she also has knowledge of Nintendo's other properties and the fourth wall, mentioning them off-handedly on numerous occasions and giving Pit counsel and advice when he does battle at her temple.

Weaknesses: Palutena is sometimes too playful and teasing for her own good, Can be taken by surprise (was defeated by Medusa's surprise attack the first time around) and is prone to becoming a damsel in distress

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Palutena Glam Blaster: A fierce attack Palutena uses to finish the Three-Headed Hewdraw if Pit doesn't finish the last head quickly enough, killing it in one shot.
  • Cover Your Eyes!: Palutena raises her shield and charges her light power, then unleashes it blinds her target with light, if in range. This lasts for about three seconds.
  • Time for a Sacrifice!: Palutena shoots a large, slow-moving ball of teal light that hone in on her target. Palutena can shoot up to three in quick succession.
  • Kneel Before Me!: Palutena waves her staff and shoots three fast-moving columns of light across the stage.
  • Poor You!: Palutena launches a halo that resembles her own across the ground. The halo hones in on her target and chases it, and it additionally shoots its own light projectiles at her target, up to three times before evaporating.
  • This Might Sting!: When her target is nearby, Palutena raises her staff and zooms forward in a huge column of light, blazing toward her target at great speed, covering a great distance in an instant.


  • Black Hole: Palutena generates a massive gravity well that draws foes in, nullifying their freedom of movement if they are not able to escape in time.
  • Brief Invincibility: A power that renders Palutena invulnerable to any form of damage for a few seconds.
  • Eggplant/Tempura Attack: Palutena's next attacks temporarily convert the opponent into an eggplant or piece of tempura with legs, leaving them unable to do anything but run away.
