Affiliation(s): Palutena (possibly)
Enemy Type: Aerial

The Fire Serpent is the Sacred Guardian of the Skyworld Tower's Fortress, guarding the last Sacred Casket of the Three Sacred Treasures. It has the head of a snake, but the body is all flame. The creature attacks by slithering around the chamber and launching three fireballs in a spread-like pattern. Only the head is vulnerable. The Long Bow is of great help here, allowing Pit to keep his distance but also maintain a steady offense.

In Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters

The Fire Serpent appears as the third boss. It is one of the three guardians that Palutena assigned to protect the Sacred Treasures and keep them safe from Orcos.

Manual Description

A giant monster with the head of a snake and a body of fire.

The Fire Serpent as it appears in-game.


  • The Fire Serpent bears a resemblance to the Tanatos, especially in the official artwork of both monsters.
  • Despite being a boss, the prologue in the manual states that Palutena herself entrusted the Fire Serpent to protect one of the Three Sacred Treasures, likely meaning the creature is not necessarily evil nor on Orcos' side, and possibly even affiliated with the goddess of light. The same also may apply to the Minotaur and Skullwing.
