The Great Reaper Palm is a Palm in Kid Icarus: Uprising that resembles the hand of the Great Reaper. It is unlocked after clearing Chapter 4 for the first time. The Great Reaper Palm is the only weapon in the game that can naturally cause weakening. Instead of firing projectiles, its charged shots summon Reapettes that home in on targets and hit multiple times.

Idol description

The Great Reaper Palm uses the power of the Great Reaper to summon Reapettes that hound targets. It takes a while to charge, but unique among weapons, its attacks have the power to halve the foe's maximum health.
