Home Stage Palutena's Temple
Final Smash Black Hole Laser


Palutena is the beautiful goddess of light, rightful ruler of Skyworld, the patron deity of Pit and the Centurions, and the guardian of humans. She is kindhearted and benevolent, as opposed to the cruel and malevolent Medusa. Despite being a divine goddess, Palutena also seems to be somewhat of a damsel-in-distress, as she was imprisoned and held captive by Medusa and needed to be rescued, but recently she has been given a much more active role as a major supporting character as Pit's greatest ally.

- : Autoreticle - Takes aim with a charge-shot reticle from Kid Icarus Uprising which appears over the enemy, then fires three light shots at that location. Can be initiated only if an enemy is within range, with nothing blocking her target, and said enemy doesn't have invincibility from teching, or dodging. Can be used as a way for stopping direct approaches. It is also able to hit opponents behind Palutena and be used for jab locks. It also stalls her mid-air, making it useful to stop opponents from gimping her. (2.9% (per hit))

> : Reflect Barrier-  Raises her shield forward, casting a rectangular barrier which pushes opponents away and reflects projectiles. Palutena's shield has a hitbox when it is being raised, allowing her to damage opponents with an unblockable hit. If the wall reflects an attack that deals at least 50% damage, it will break. However, unlike other reflectors, it can be used immediately after it has shattered. (5%, 1.17x damage (reflected projectiles))

^ : Warp -  Disappears and then reappears in a chosen direction, much like Teleport. Can be ledge-cancelled, allowing for defensive and movement options. (0%)

v : Counter -  After hiding behind her shield, she performs a counterattack with her staff, similar to that of many of the Fire Emblem characters. It has surprisingly high damage, though despite what one of the in-game's tips says, it has the lowest range and lowest power of all counters, and it also has very long punishable endlag should it miss. It also has a sourspot that deals even less knockback. Will One-hit KO anyone if she managed to counter an attack that deals at least 50% damage. (1.3x damage of countered attacks, 10% minimum)

F : Black Hole Laser -  Palutena twirls her staff above her, then speeds out of the stage. She then fires a Black Hole, which attracts foes towards it and puts them in a tumbling state, then fires the Mega Laser into the Black Hole to deal damage, concluding with a final hit to knock the victims away as Black Hole dissipates. It KOs at 54%. Palutena will then return to the stage after the Final Smash ends. (2.4% (loop), 12% (last))
