Special Attacks

Name Damage Description
Neutral Special Palutena's Bow 3.3-8.6% Pit shoots a bluish-white arrow that can be curved in any direction. Can be aimed to the sides and up while charging.
Alternate 1 Piercing Bow 5.1-11.7% Pit unleashes a bigger and stronger arrow that bypasses his rivals. This arrow is slower, has less range, and cannot be angled.
Alternate 2 Guiding Bow 2.1-6% Pit fires an arrow that stays onscreen longer, has greater range, and can be curved to the point of two complete circles, but is weaker.
Side Special Upperdash Arm 11% (ground), 9% (air) Pit brings out his Upperdash Arm and dashes forward, delivering a swift uppercut to anyone in his way. It also deflects projectiles at a roughly 45 degree angle.
Alternate 1 Interception Arm 13% (ground), 11% (air) Pit enters a defensive stance with the Upperdash Arm, countering opponents who attack him and/or get too close. No dash, but has higher knockback and speed in exchange.
Alternate 2 Quickdash Arm 9% (ground), 7% (air) Pit dashes quicker and further, but slides a bit when attacking and the uppercut itself is weaker.
Up Special Power of Flight Using Palutena's Power of Flight, Pit soars into the air. The flight's direction can be altered in any way except downwards.
Alternate 1 Striking Flight 9% (clean), 6% (late) Pit utilizes a more focused flight that inflicts damage at the start and ascent. Longer startup and less range.
Alternate 2 Breezy Flight A tornado envelops Pit as he takes off. The tornado pushes away foes in the opposite direction of the flight, and limits the range of it.
Down Special Guardian Orbitars 1.5x damage (reflected projectiles) Pit sends out his Guardian Orbitars which create twin energy shields that protect his front and back. These shields reflect projectiles with 50% more power and 70% more speed than they originally had. They also block melee attacks but can break with enough damage, requiring 10 seconds to regenerate. Additionally, they push back foes who touch it.
Alternate 1 Impact Orbitars 5% Pit attacks with Orbitars that have damaging shields which knock opponents back. In return, they don't reflect projectiles nor block physical strikes. This does mean, however, that they cannot break.
Alternate 2 Amplifying Orbitars 2x damage (reflected projectiles) Pit utilizes stronger Orbitars that have more fragile shields but power up reflected shots to double their strength and speed.
Final Smash Three Sacred Treasures 2% (arrows, energy blasts), 12% (charged shots), 15% (pillars) Pit equips the Three Sacred Treasures and unleashes a storm of arrows on his foes. He occasionally looses green homing shots in between volleys, as well as charged arrows with high knockback. Pit finishes the assault with powerful beams of light from the sky.
