Grenades are brand new items introduced in Kid Icarus: Uprising. These explosive, single-use items have a golden and spherical appearance encased in a metallic ring. They can be found in Treasure Boxes, held by enemies, or simply lying around. These powerful weapons can be thrown to create a large explosion that can wipe out many enemies at once. Grenades appear in both Solo and Together Mode, and are one of the first items found in Solo Mode.
"Once picked up, you can lob this powerful grenade in the direction of the reticle with your next press of they attack button. The yellow color of the reticle means you can press the attack button to throw an item."
