The Knuckle Staff is a type of Staff in Kid Icarus: Uprising. It has strong melee attacks and close range shots, but it has weak long-range attacks, lack range, and charge slowly.

Idol description

The brutish Knuckle Staff sets itself apart from other staffs by excelling at melee attacks. While its shots still pack a punch, they lack range, lose power as they travel, and charge slowly—so make sure to aim carefully!
