Welcome to the Wiki! --Starphoria 08:28, 14 January 2012 (MST)


Hi, as seen here, there are files to be moved over, do you mind assisting in moving these files from the old wiki? --Starphoria 11:28, 14 January 2012 (MST)

Greetings once again!

How are you liking the structure of this new site? I'm starting to get fairly used to it, but it definitely seems a bit more complex than the wikia version. By the way, have you read this preview?

I should warn you that it has some spoilers, one of which is actually really shocking and unexpected. We should have spoiler warnings available on here soon, so if you do read it, don't post this info just yet. Anyways, I'm liking how great everything is looking in the game! Do you still think we should schedule an online battle with the other wiki members when the game finally arrives? --DoctorFantastic 22:26, 24 January 2012 (MST)

Yeah, I'm still trying to adjust here, but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it sooner or later. Yes, this game is shaping up to be awesome. My only concern is whether or not this game will do well commercially (after all, it's Nintendo franchise without the word 'Mario' or 'Pokemon' in it, but I'm confident Nintendo will advertise it thoroughly). And holy crap, I totally did not see that coming regarding Gaol. Sounds like a huge Metroid reference Sakurai threw in there. Also about the online battles, yes, we should schedule them soon. I can tell the others about it on Skype (are you on the Icaruspedia Skype chatroom?). We will try our best to find an appropriate date for most of the members on this site. -RicketyTrigger 01:33, 25 January 2012 (MST)-
Yes, this game actually has quite a few Metroid references, huh? I even heard that the Star Pirates might officially be named Space Pirates, since it's what most reviewers are calling them. I also wonder if this means that the dark lord has a different name. Dark Mistress Gaolita, perhaps?? Either way, I think this game will do great if Nintendo creates a demo for it. And this shouldn't just be any normal demo. It should be one of those demos Nintendo mentioned that would automatically download to any systems with an Internet connection. I know they talked about this feature at some point, and this would be the perfect opportunity to test it out. By the way, did you say you know someone who can translate some Japanese, as the official site updated with A LOT of written information just recently. It shows a really cool-looking Pirate Cannon as well! Oh, and I don't have a Skype account at this time.
WOW, and loads of artwork too! --DoctorFantastic 14:23, 26 January 2012 (MST)
Absolutely, a demo is a must for this game. I wouldn't be surprised if the woman is Magnus' daughter or wife or something cause he's supposed to have some kind of connection to Gaol, so he may already know Gaol is female. My theory is that the Underworld Army probably kidnapped and brainwashed the lady, and Magnus is possibly trying to save her. But I can already imagine Pit's reaction to finding out Gaol's true identity XD. I'll see if my friend is willing to translate all the new info on the Japanese website (or maybe you want specific info translated?). I'm going to see him this Sunday, but I can't guarantee he'll do it, cause he doesn't really care for video games, but I'll try my best to convince him. Also, the Mimicutie thing gave me a good laugh. -RicketyTrigger 18:20, 26 January 2012 (MST)-
Leave it to Sakurai to stick female legs onto a Treasure Chest, and also to place one inside a fish! I wish we could post these artworks, but I'm not sure if its allowed because of the whole copyright thing with Flickr. Not sure how that works if the artwork still technically belongs to Nintendo. Anyways, no pressure with translating the stuff on the website. I believe most of it is supposed to be Sakurai's thoughts on the game, rather than any information about the game itself anyways. As for the whole Gaol thing, Magnus still says he's in it for reward money, although he seems like the type of character that would make stuff up to hide his more sensitive side, I suppose. I certainly look forward to finding out in the near future. --DoctorFantastic 19:22, 26 January 2012 (MST)

Sorry, I actually didn't find out about the copyright thing until after I posted the link. I honestly don't think it's a big deal since they shouldn't be able to claim a copyright for Nintendo's artwork, at least as far as I know. It might just be some kind of rule for the site itself. For now, we could ask an admin about this and see if they think it's okay to use these. If it won't work, we can simply remove them from the pages for now and repost them when the images become more widespread over the Internet. --DoctorFantastic 20:12, 26 January 2012 (MST)

Well if that's the case, it shouldn't be a big deal, but I'll learn to be more careful next time! Now that I've taken a much more closer look at the artwork, I think I know who the artist is. I think its Hirooka Masaki: He also did artwork for Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia. If it is him, I'm glad Sakurai chose him for the job, his artwork is really nice. However I'm still curious who the composer is. My best guess for now is Shogo Sakai. -RicketyTrigger 21:08, 26 January 2012 (MST)-
Yes, I actually just sent a request for the artwork to the site itself. If they don't allow it, we can simply remove the images for now. I sure hope they are okay with it, because the images look so ridiculously glorious on this wiki! I'm not familiar at all with the artist or the composer, but what I do know is that whoever they may be, they're EXTREMELY talented.
Yeah, these images are already beginning to appear on other sites anyways, some of which we haven't even seen before, like this: --DoctorFantastic 21:17, 26 January 2012 (MST)
So I guess is it okay to use them or should we still wait? -RicketyTrigger 22:18, 26 January 2012 (MST)-
It should actually be okay, since these were all sent out by Nintendo of Europe. Some sites have said they only posted these pictures on Flickr because there were so many, that it crashed their own gallery pages. I'm not surprised, as I found the gold mine of media right here. Over 600 images and artwork:
By the way, sorry for posting so many links. --DoctorFantastic 23:11, 26 January 2012 (MST)
It's alright mate, and wow thanks for finding this, we better get to work! -RicketyTrigger 00:05, 27 January 2012 (MST)-

Dark Pit Theory?

Huh, that's funny, this guy sounds a lot like me. Oh wait a minute...

By the way, you must check out the brilliance of the Eggplant Wizard page! --DoctorFantastic 18:48, 31 January 2012 (MST)

Indeed, you can sort of see the structural similarities between my names DoctorFantastic and MrMindFormula, eh? Honestly, I'm not sure where I got the latter one from, though...
Anyways, I'm glad to see this trailer translated, especially because there appears to be a hidden villain within the dialogue. Notice that someone says "Come on then, servent of the goddess!" in a voice that doesn't match Dark Pit or any other revealed villain for that matter? Apparently, we'll also have to save deities that have fallen to the Underworld Army, so perhaps we'll see good ol' Zeus along with some other gods! Very interesting... --DoctorFantastic 09:34, 1 February 2012 (MST)
Eh, for this type of game, I'm not sure if other angelic characters would be necessary at this time. If this game becomes successful though, they can surely expand on the series' mythology with future installments, including the addition of a more angelic population in Skyworld. --DoctorFantastic 23:31, 3 February 2012 (MST)
Well, who knows. We may see more angels in the final release yet. On another note, THIS has me very excited: Seriously, if this is true, this could possibly be one of the most content-rich portable games ever! --DoctorFantastic 13:56, 4 February 2012 (MST)
In the words of M. Bison, YYEEESSSSSSSS, this would be amazing. But I find it weird why this has to be patented. -RicketyTrigger 12:59, 5 February 2012 (MST)-
It's actually pretty common for game companies to patent certain elements and ideas, almost to the point of absurdity. However, this actually seems like a fairly unique idea. I've yet to hear of a game that has weapon fusing. Upgrading, customizing, and collecting maybe, but never weapon fusing. Hope this idea is well executed, anyways! --DoctorFantastic 19:25, 5 February 2012 (MST)


You want to talk about interesting news, just look at this:

Now, while the whole AR cards packaged with chocolate thing is rather strange in itself, take a look at the cards shown in the advertisement. I think I see some new characters in there! We need a higher resolution picture FAST. --DoctorFantastic 00:57, 12 February 2012 (MST)

Oh my gosh, this reminds me of my childhood when my brother and I used to buy this Pokemon bread that contained stickers of Pokemon. Anyways, is that Zeus I see there? And the card next to the Big Reaper looks like some kind of bird or dragon, and that one next to Dark Pit looks like Medusa with a fancier artwork. -RicketyTrigger 01:33, 12 February 2012 (MST)-
Pokemon....bread? Aahh, Nintendo. Always promoting their franchises in the most unusual ways. I think the one with Medusa is supposed to be her astral projection, and this is like her third card as well. I doubt the robed one is Zeus, simply because I'm almost sure he'd be allied with Palutena rather than Unaffiliated, but I suppose anything is possible at this point. That last one on the other hand I can't figure out at all. I hope Nintendo releases a larger picture, because I have a feeling we've barely scratched the surface in terms of characters and villains in this game.
By the way, someone posted a full video of the first chapter at its best: --DoctorFantastic 12:21, 12 February 2012 (MST)
Well, the robed one may not be Zeus, but it certainly looks like some kind of god, or maybe a human king. I'm pretty sure the green one is some sort of avian creature. It looks like it has two big wings. Maybe if Nintendo won't upload more AR cards until release date, we may be lucky enough that Sakurai uploads a few new ones on his Twitter before them. If there are this many characters in this game, I can't imagine how many chapters there are. And thanks for the video. Too bad they didn't play Chaper 2 or 3. Probably to avoid spoilers.-RicketyTrigger 13:08, 12 February 2012 (MST)-
Yeah, and I must say, I'm not as pleased with how the chapter art is laid out in the final version. I liked when it had the artwork of the chapter's key characters featured on the images, like in the E3 demo. But it's a minor gripe, and I still like how the overall Arm's Altar menu looks. In terms of characters, I hope we also get an in-game appearance from a monster I like to call Veggiephemus, the plant cyclops that will appear in the Kid Icarus Anime shorts. --DoctorFantastic 15:41, 12 February 2012 (MST)
I agree, the chapter layout is pretty plain compared to the demos. I really want to see the anime shorts, especially the one about Medusa. I would like some proper backstory for her. We don't even know why she hates humans. Speaking of which, would you like to see a proper Kid Icarus anime series in the near future? I would certainly love to. I think it should be a prequel to Uprising because just copy and pasting Uprising's plot wouldn't be that original or exciting. But it begs the question if the series should be considered canon or not. -RicketyTrigger 21:50, 12 February 2012 (MST)-
Yeah, and I want to see the one about Thanatos, mainly because I want to actually see the character in action. Seriously, he looks like a fish! An awesome fish! A fishy god, if you will. A full animated series would also be excellent, but first we must see how successful the game itself will be. --DoctorFantastic 23:41, 12 February 2012 (MST)

Pretty awesome trailer!

Today's trailer really showed off some cool stuff, huh? I like how this game is not only based on mythology, but also has numerous biblical references, first with the Babel Club and now a recreation of the parting of the Red Sea! Speaking of which, I wonder if there is a chance that we'll be seeing a character based on Poseidon since the Seafloor Palace is supposed to be underwater? I also wonder if they really showed off the final boss battle at the end, because it seems rather unusual that Nintendo would spoil something like that, at least this far from release. --DoctorFantastic 19:25, 17 February 2012 (MST)

Yes, indeed it was. I'm also surprised by the large number of biblical references, but it's a pretty nice touch. I've been thinking the same thing that there could be some kind of sea god like Poseidon/Neptune. I highly doubt that was the final boss. I don't think Nintendo has ever revealed the final boss fight for any of their games before release. It's probably a half-way-through-the-game Medusa boss fight, sort of like in some Mario games, you fight Bowser several times as you progress and as a final boss. -RicketyTrigger 20:22, 17 February 2012 (MST)-
I was sort of thinking that, too. But wow, is that gonna be some boss fight! I wouldn't have guessed that Medusa's astral projection represented her actual size. I mean, she's almost twice as tall as the Big Reaper, who was already enormous to begin with. Pit also looks awesome wearing the Three Sacred Treasures, and it looks like he gains unlimited flight whilst he is wearing them. --DoctorFantastic 22:00, 17 February 2012 (MST)
It's hard to say if that's really Medusa's true size or not. After all, she is a goddess so she can probably change her physical size on her own will. For the real final boss fight, I want Pit to fight her normal sized, because I want to see the two clash swords (or whatever weapon they prefer) together, but that's probably just me. Yes, Pit's armor looks awesome, I hope they release an equally awesome official artwork of him equipped with the Three Sacred Treasures. -RicketyTrigger 22:30, 17 February 2012 (MST)-
I wouldn't be surprised, as they seem to want to adapt everything that isn't a menu item into artwork of sorts. Even the locations have been hand drawn, which shows some great dedication. If the final Medusa fight does have her normal sized, I hope it's a two part battle with her transforming into some kind of beast similar to her monster form for the second part. That would be pretty snazzy, and we all know how Sakurai likes making excellent final boss fights, with Marx, Master Hand, Tabuu, and Nightmare all being prime examples. --DoctorFantastic 22:42, 17 February 2012 (MST)
I would kill somebody love for an official artbook to be released for this game via Club Nintendo. -RicketyTrigger 23:15, 17 February 2012 (MST)-
Yes, it would have to be a pretty large artbook with how much artwork there is. And congratulations on getting the Editor-in-Chief position! Now our staff roster will be complete when we become a part of NIWA. Oh, and one more thing, did they REALLY change Magnus' name to Magna?? I was hoping Nintendo of America just messed up the spelling, because that would simply be outrageous if they changed it to Magna when Magnus was already a perfecly suitable name. --DoctorFantastic 17:10, 18 February 2012 (MST)
Thanks, but I feel like I won't be keeping the position for too long, cause I'll be very busy within the next month. Well, that's what the American site calls him. If it is a spelling error, I don't know how the heck they managed to misspell Magnus with Magna. You'd think they would at least double check the spelling before submitting it. But I'll be mad either way, cause I already changed everything to Magna. -RicketyTrigger 17:18, 18 February 2012 (MST)
Hopefully someone is consulting Nintendo about this. Unfortunately, it seems likely that they did change the name since they have yet to edit the spelling after so much time has passed, not to mention mistakes like this are extremely rare. In this case, I suppose I'll update the Chapter artwork soon, and if it actually was a mistake, we can just revert all of the edits and the picture change. I also don't think the other staff mambers will mind if you're unavailable for a while, although you should still mention it to them if you haven't already. --DoctorFantastic 17:32, 18 February 2012 (MST)


Hello. Since DoctorFantastic is turning down the position, I was wondering if you would like to become Editor-in-Chief? Since you make a lot of edits, you'll be perfect. You can choose to keep the position as long as you want. --Starphoria (C·E) 08:23, 18 February 2012 (MST)


If you ever see templates overlapping one another put {{clr}} on top of the second item. (i.e an infobox and navigation template are overlapping, put clr on the navigation template since it comes second, here is an example of that). --Starphoria (C·E) 20:23, 18 February 2012 (MST)

Thanks, this will be very useful -RicketyTrigger 20:27, 18 February 2012 (MST)-

Have you listened to this yet?!

Only five songs, and yet the soundtrack already sounds incredible! Chapter 4's music was greatly improved as well. --DoctorFantastic 19:21, 22 February 2012 (MST)

Indeed DoctorFanastic, the music is terrific. Now we just need to know the composer(s). I really like Dark Pit's theme. I'm quite a fan of Spanish style music. -RicketyTrigger 20:44, 22 February 2012 (MST)-
Oh yes, I agree RicketyTigger..... See?? How do you like having your username misspelled, hmmm? Hope you like Winnie-the-Pooh, good sir. Anyways, my favorite music is definitely the Reaper's theme because it has such a fun and awesome vibe to it! Also, my new favorite character in the game is Beam Claws. --DoctorFantastic 01:41, 23 February 2012 (MST)
Heh, used to love Winnie the Pooh as a kid, and Tigger was my favorite. I like Beam Claws, but Twinbellows Cannon is also pretty cool. He knocks people off with authority. Anyways, I always liked the Fighters since they were shown at last E3. I don't really know why, but I think they look pretty cool. -RicketyTrigger 01:57, 23 February 2012 (MST)-
I bet it has something to do with them being awesome, futuristic techno-Greek warriors that can wield any type of weapon. I must say, after seeing so much multiplayer content, I've become slightly concerned that single player might have been neglected in comparison. Then again, Mr. Sakurai has surprised me before. Despite my concern, I still have a feeling that perhaps the overall adventure might be larger than we expected. --DoctorFantastic 18:12, 23 February 2012 (MST)

Template:Editor's Notes

I would suggest updating it monthly (starting now I guess), so you can update on all the projects. Like we talked about before, just introduce yourself, tell everyone on the template that you are the EiC, and discuss the projects in which we need the most expansion in and such. (Which is right now removing Wikia links, and working on people, companies and music articles). --Starphoria (C·E) 17:12, 26 February 2012 (MST)

We should also probably change the images to thumb articles by adding [[File:Imagehere.jpg|thumb]]. --Starphoria (C·E) 17:01, 27 February 2012 (MST)
And begin to add references to our articles... --Starphoria (C·E) 17:32, 27 February 2012 (MST)


Can you get on Skype ASAP? We need to discuss some things :P --Starphoria (C·E) 13:38, 29 February 2012 (MST)

I'm deeply sorry, I cannot be on Skype on the moment. I'll try to be on there in the next two hours or so. You can start discussing now (I'm sure you already have though). I'll catch up later. -RicketyTrigger 16:22, 29 February 2012 (MST)-
We'll wait for you :P I have to eat dinner anyway. --Starphoria (C·E) 16:46, 29 February 2012 (MST)

Re: Question

Thanks for the link, but I can't believe that there is actually a shrimp tempura monster! That's so crazy, and yet I still find it so clever! He even has a staff and little shrimp-like legs. He's the tastiest looking monster I've ever seen! I wonder if he's actually going to be a major yet comical villain? Okay, all of that madness aside, the images have been coming from the game's Japanese Twitter account:!/3DS_Palutena. It's almost like a Kid Icarus version of the Smash Bros. Dojo with daily updates, and the translations usually come later on the UK Twitter account. By the way, Pandora's been confirmed to return at last, and there's new images of the anime shorts on the Twitter account as well! --DoctorFantastic 21:40, 5 March 2012 (MST)

If that's the case, I have no idea what other images you speak of. Pandora appears on an AR Card image circulating the Web, but unfortunately she's mostly covered by another card, although her name can be seen here: Hey, I bet that shrimp guy is the cousin of the Eggplant Wizard or something. --DoctorFantastic 22:01, 5 March 2012 (MST)
Some fantastic news from the Official Nintendo Magazine's review: "The single player campaign is huge, for a start, and it sits alongside two full-featured local and online multiplayer modes [offering] countless equippable weapons and powers that work across both." My fears of a short story mode have certainly been alleviated. --DoctorFantastic 10:00, 6 March 2012 (MST)


Eh, I always thought that my theory would be a bit too complex for Nintendo to consider, but it was enjoyable speculation nonetheless. And there is certainly no doubt that it is the same mirror, which I am guessing reveals the dark side of those who look into it (hence the creation of Dark Pit). What is also worth noting is that the card with Pandora seems to show that same mirror in the background, meaning she could possibly be part of this madness as well (being the goddess of disaster, I wouldn't at all be surprised). In addition, there seems to be a new card class with a symbol that resembles a Pokeball inside a gear, which also fascinates me. Do you want to know what really annoys me? This:

I have been waiting to see Thanatos' brilliant full design for quite some time, only for them to post a picture of his card covered by other cards?? I think they specifically and intentionally wanted to annoy me with anticipation, first with Pandora and now this! At least his transformation card gives us a glimpse of his awesome and fashionable genie pants.

EDIT: Well, you should check out the new trailer on the Japanese website, as some of the above questions have been answered! --DoctorFantastic 23:38, 7 March 2012 (MST)

Hey, do you think the voice at the beginning of the trailer is Zeus? I don't know who else it could be, and he certainly sounds fantastic and powerful! --DoctorFantastic 16:16, 8 March 2012 (MST)
I hope so, he definitely sounds benevolent and godly. The newest trailer was amazing, can't believe we're gonna play it in two weeks. I also heard another guy's voice when it said "Let's get down to business!" during the short multiplayer scene. I wonder who that was... maybe the Fighters do talk after all?! Nah, I doubt it. A bit off-topic, what should we do with the Tanatos and Thanatos article? Just merge them? -RicketyTrigger 16:21, 8 March 2012 (MST)-
