heavenly origins, which give him connections with some pretty superior

Heard of at the SSS:
He first fought against Samus
in Match 96. A little late, wouldn't you say? :p
A general and well-publicized hero of the Angel Land army assigned to
protect Palutena and the Sky Palace, Pit
did not always bear such handsome titles. He earned them with
dedication and perseverance through the most brutal of tests; things
that would send most mortal men to their deathbed.
Pit began his
career as a foot soldier in the Angel Land army. Palutena, the Goddess
of Light, was attacked by her evil sister Medusa, who overtook the Sky
Palace and forced many soldiers into the Underworld, while turning
others into statues known as Centurions. Sensing a great well of
courage within himself, Pit
managed to escape, however, from his fiery prison, and with the help of
his trusty bow, acquire the three Sacred Treasures, necessary to defeat
Medusa and her fiendish designs. Armed with the Arrows of Light, the
Wings of Pegasus, and the Mirror Shield and Silver Armor, Pit defeated Medusa and restored
peace to Angel Land. As his reward, he was granted rank in the army, as
well as command as Palutena's personal bodyguard.
Pit has only had
one adventure since, fighting against the Orcos, a demon who kidnapped
Palutena in an attempt to conquer Angel Land. Acquiring the Sacred
Treasures once more with telepathic guidance from Paulutena, Pit was able to defeat the Orcos
and rescue the Goddess. Overjoyed, Pit
foolishly flew too high while wearing the Sacred Treasures, and was
scorched by the sun and fell into the sea...
What became of our angel friend? Not much is certain, but he has
appeared recently to fight at the Stadium, seemingly unscathed. Some
sources suggest he was saved by the legendary Halcyon. Others say that,
being an angel, he can't die, and has been doing his job like always.
Whatever the case may be, it must've certainly been an adventure, and
we here at the Stadium would absolutely love to hear about it.
Kudos to you, Pit, for
a job well done! Now go kick some new school Nintendo ass old school! (Flip
- Palutena's Arrow
- Modified by Palutena from the Sacred Bow, Pit pulls
taut the Sacred Bow of Palutena using his two armband halos and fires
an arrow of pure light! It is much like Link's Bow, but this can be
aimed in a full arch in front of him, and even aimed straight up!
- UP SPECIAL Moves
- Wings of Icarus
- Modified by Palutena from the Wings of Pegasus, it now
allows Pit to actually FLY! However like the fabled Icarus, if he flies
too long, he will fall! Remember, Pit is an angel who cannot normally
- SIDE SPECIAL Moves
- Angel Ring
- "Yiyiyiyiyiyiyiyi!" calls out Kid Icarus, as he spins
his bow rapidly right in front of him. Remember, the Sacred Bow is now
also a set of swords, so this move slices the opponents up.
- DOWN SPECIAL Moves
- Mirror Shield
- Pit pulls out a magical shield that reflects any
projectile that hits it, and stops any damage that would've resulted.
- FINAL SMASH Moves
- Palutena's Army
- Pit asks for help from his patron goddess. Palutena,
the goddess of light, obliges by sending down some Centarions to help
Pit in the fight. Each Centarion can only take one hit, but there are
so many of them attacking his opponents and Pit is free to attack his
opponents as well.
