The Taurus Arm is one of the nine Zodiac Weapons found in Kid Icarus: Uprising. It can be found in Chapter 4, in a pit near the Clubberskull and swinging blades. The Taurus Arm's melee attacks are incredibly strong, compromising for the weak homing ability and range.

Idol description

The Zodiac weapon bearing the sign of Taurus. The two horns deal the most melee damage of any arm. While its ranged attacks are big and powerful, they have weak homing ability and limited range.
