For this move, Pit uses the Palutena Bow to charge a shining, blue arrow to fire at opponents. Charging an arrow increases their power and damage output. At an opponent's higher damage levels, these arrows can KO a character. After an arrow has been fired, Pit has control over their travel, being able to tilt the trajectory of an arrow mid-flight, even being able to loop the arrows in a full circle. Pit can also fire these arrows directly upwards.
The only ability from Kid Icarus that Palutena's Arrow could possibly be drawn from is the Arrow of Light, one of the Three Sacred Treasures. Arrows of Light are unstoppable beams of light, which Pit could fire from a bow. However, the power of Palutena's Arrows pale in comparison to the Arrows of Light.
