|“||I am Pit, servant of Goddess of Light!||„|
Pit is the main protagonist of the Kid Icarus series, and though he is an angel, he cannot fly by himself. He fights under the goddess of light Palutena and cares deeply for mankind. Apparently, though, he can't read.
Pit has fought against many underworld enemies, including Medusa and Hades (though he needed special weapons to defeat them both). He is very persistent and is good with many weapons, including swords, clubs, staves, and even claws. However, his main weapon is the Bow of Palutena, which he uses in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
Pit also apparently plays other Nintendo games, as he references many of them throughout Kid Icarus: Uprising, his most recent and greatest game.
He and his dark counterpart, Dark Pit, are voiced by Antony Del Rio, who also voices Reptil in The Super Hero Squad Show.
In the original Kid Icarus, Pit appears as a young, Putto-like angel wearing a simple, white chiton, and a pair of sandals and metal cuffs. He has short, brown hair and white wings that are incapable of flight. Starting in Of Myths and Monsters, he now possesses blue eyes and a laurel crown.
Pit was given a significant redesign by Masahiro Sakurai in Brawl, which was approved by Pit's creator and inspired by the evolution of Link's design over the years. Pit now looks to be roughly 13 years of age and stands at 5'3" (160 cm). He has large, blue eyes and fluffy, brown hair, with a small cowlick poking out from the back. His chiton is now decorated with red and gold hems along the bottom, which is fastened on the shoulder by a golden fibula with a red gem in the center. He wears the outfit with a brown belt lined with silver and a gold, triangular buckle on his waist. Pit also wears navy blue tights beneath his chiton. The angel now has a pair of bronze and gold cuffs around his forearms, and singular gold rings on his upper left arm and right thigh. His brown sandals are decorated with crossing beige bands, and are edged at the top with white wool.
Pit is peppy and chipper, and like many Nintendo protagonists, he is fearless and heroic. He has no problem fighting against monsters many times his size and is always ready to help the humans when they are in need. The angel has a notable humorous side and enjoys cracking jokes and bantering with Palutena. Pit is also very confident, which makes him bit of a show-off at times. He can, however, become a little reckless due to his gung-ho and naive personality, which causes him to get into trouble at times. Nonetheless, Pit is a good-hearted and friendly character. He is described by Viridi as "insufferably upbeat" and by Dark Pit as "annoyingly cheerful." He is also shown to be moderately gullible at times, often believing Palutena's words to be true even when she is joking.
His trust in Palutena is absolute, but he is shown to be somewhat nervous on his own, such as during the ascent of the Lightning Tower. Without Palutena to back him up, he steadily becomes quieter and quieter. While in Hades's body, Pit also tries to replicate Palutena's helpful dialogue as she can't contact him. He becomes very self-conscious doing this, but it helps to reassure him.
Powers and Abilities
Pit is a master of combat. He uses many different types of weapons, has great physical strength despite his looks, and with the power of Palutena, he can fly at intense speeds (though only for 5 minutes). He also has a weapon called the Great Sacred Treasure which he obtains and uses in the final battle of Kid Icarus: Uprising. However, he no longer has it, since it was broken by Hades.
Despite being a flightless angel, Pit is still a skilled and versatile fighter. He originally started out as an archer that mainly specialized in using the Bow, but over the years he has become more experienced with using various weapons, such as the Blade, Claws, and Cannon.
He has a very high level of durability, as his body was capable of taking Magnus's powerful blows and attacks. In Uprising, Pit mentions that he's "spent this entire game getting shot at," showcasing his durability against the Underworld Army and the like.
Also, as the Captain of Palutena's Guard, he has demonstrated good leadership skills. Despite Pit's extreme dependence and trust in Palutena, he's capable of coming up with ideas and strategies on his own, as shown from battling Hades's Heart or when battling Pseudo-Palutena when the real Palutena was asleep.
