Bladers (ブレイダー Bureidā) are Forces of Nature enemies introduced in Kid Icarus: Uprising. These monsters resemble cyclopean, plant-like birds with sharp blades for wings. In the air, Bladers can attack by firing lasers from their eyes, while also using their wings as weapons. In addition, these creatures are able to land and run around, with their movements being similar to those of the Underworld Paramush, but tend to be faster and more aggressive than the latter.
The Bladers are relatively common enemies and first appear in Chapter 11: Viridi, Goddess of Nature.
These elite Forces of Nature soldiers can change their form to suit either land or air battles. This helps Bladers adapt their tactics to any condition, even fleeing if necessary. They also serve as field commanders, doling out simple orders.
