The Biota (ビオタ Biota) is an Aurum enemy introduced in Kid Icarus: Uprising. It has the appearance of a small stand with a spinning ring placed on top. Around it float eight green energy orbs. Biota flings its energy orbs to attack; Pit can hit these with melee attacks to send them back at the Biota, dealing damage to it. Sometimes the energy orbs turn red, and they will explode if they hit Pit; these can also be reflected back at the Biota. The base of the Biota can also be destroyed with normal attacks.
In Kid Icarus: Uprising
These semi-rare enemies first appear in the land battles of The Aurum Hive where Palutena explains how to fight them.
A Biota flings out floating green energy orbs to attack its enemies. These orbs are designed to withstand almost any attack, but it's possible to use this to your advantage. A melee strike can send them flying back at the Biota!
- This enemy's name is most likely based on the words bio, meaning "of life", and iota, a letter in the Greek alphabet.
