Uh...this really doesn't look like much of a party.


Lady Palutena is a major character from the Kid Icarus franchise and one of the most requested characters worldwide. The Goddess of Light, she is most notable for being hot, adorable, beautiful, snarky, and a gigantic troll, and for being the only character besides those stupid ing Mii Fighters to make full use of Custom Moves. Before her reveal, she was one of the three most requested newcomers on the board along with Mewtwo and, of course, Ridley (King K. Rool begs to differ).

On January 22, 2014, two supposedly leaked pictures of her were posted online. They were never disproved, but upon her official reveal she was shown with a different model. It is unknown whether the pictures were faked or if her model simply changed during development, as was the case with Mario.

During E3, Palutena was officially revealed as playable, and became Zero Suit Samus' biggest competition for the title of "Favorite Smash Waifu".

Not to be confused with Pale Tuna.

Palutena has a devoit fanbase driven solely by their ual urges. She is also literally worse than but is also married to the King of Porkness, and mothered the one and only Captain Falcon with him.


The Goddess of Light first appeared in Kid Icarus, where she played the damsel in distress while being held captive by Medusa, Goddess of Darkness. She sends Pit the Palutena Bow and entrusts him to defeat Medusa and save her.

Palutena's next appearance was in Myths & Monsters. In this game, she has a vision of the demon Orcos attacking Angel Land and sends Pit to retrieve the Three Sacred Treasures to combat him upon arrival. She is once again made a damsel after being turned to stone by the demon, forcing Pit to fight Orcos in order to save her.

In Uprising, Palutena gained much more character and importance. She helps Pit throughout his adventure by telling him where to go, controlling the Power of Flight, and providing him with food and weapons as they try to protect the humans of Angel Land from the Underworld Army. She appears in 24 of the 25 chapters.

From Chapters 18 to 20, Palutena is possessed by an evil creature called the Chaos Kin. During this time, she acts vindictive and cruel, destroying Skyworld and commanding the Centurions to attack the humans. Pit is forced to fight the goddess in chapter 20.

During her boss fight, Palutena uses:

  • Levitation
  • A homing projectile shot of light magic
  • A homing shot that splits into three, which are fired in quick succession
  • A large beam of light that envelops her body and the surrounding area, also allowing her to fly across the arena at a fast speed
  • Columns of light that travel around the arena
  • Summoning Centurions
  • An attack where she twirls around, enveloping herself in rings of light that deliver knockback
  • A homing halo attack that fires projectiles as it travels
  • A blinding beam of light

After charging her power, Palutena can also fire a giant laser beam of light, dubbed the Palutena Glam Blaster or Sacred Goddess Clobberlaser.

In the anime short "Palutena's Revolting Dinner," she is seen to be able to use the Wolf Claws.

Palutena also cameoes in Brawl's Subspace Emissary, where she once again bestows Pit with the Palutena Bow, and also appears during his old Final Smash. This was also her first appearance with her current "kawaii animu waifu" design (albeit with a slightly more realistic face than in Uprising), although she hadn't been given a voice or personality yet.


Palutena is a kind and wise ruler, watching over Angel Land and defending it from dangers like the Underworld Army and the Forces of Nature. She also cares very much for Pit, though she often teases him and others around as well. Palutena has a habit of making up goddess superpowers, most of which she demonstrates on Pit.


On January 22, 2014, two supposedly leaked pictures of Palutena on 3DS Battlefield went online. They were never successfully debunked, but upon her official reveal on June 10, 2014 she was shown with a different model. It is unknown whether the pictures were faked or if her model simply changed during development, as was the case with Mario.

Exactly one week after the leak came out, a picture of Palutena as a statue on Palutena's Temple was revealed. This led to speculation that Sakurai is aware of the leak.

While unrelated to the leak, the April 8th Smash Brothers Direct revealed a Pseudo-Palutena trophy seemingly made to trick people into thinking it was Palutena.


My X-ray specs allow me to see your ignorance!

—Palutena to Viridi

I'm sorry Pit, I didn't mean to confuse you. Let me make this easier for you. Big monsters kill Pit, grr!

—Palutena to Pit

If you don't watch out, we'll be having barbecued angel tonight! And though spicy angel wings sound tasty, I'd best get you out of there.

—Palutena to Pit

Despite the Underworld Invasion, the people haven't given up hope! It's up to us to protect them.

—Palutena to Pit

I think they used it in that one series, Super Bash Sisters!

—Palutena talking about Smash

...Did you just call me ma'am?

—Palutena to Phosphora

Despite my winsomeness and equanimity, I still have a streak of rascality.


Palutena: Oh... Do you think I overdid it?

—Palutena and Pit on the Glamblaster

Palutena: They're very well-rounded weapons.
Pit: Oh, I know. I used one in the last Brawl!
Palutena: Brawl? How horrible! Were you hurt?
Pit: No way, it was a Smash!
Palutena: I just can't imagine you in a Melee.
Pit: That's because I wasn't...

—Palutena and Pit on bows

I'm here for a little, ah, "Divine Intervention."

—Palutena upon confirmation
