Midnight Palm
Type: Palm
Specializes In: Ranged/Defensive Combat
Strengths: Strong nullification; powerful shots
Weaknesses: Slow moving ranged attacks

The Midnight Palm is a Palm in Kid Icarus: Uprising. It is a purple tattoo, having three moon imprints: one of the top of the arm and two on the bottom. It has a high nullification value. While made for defense, it can still do considerable damage. Its homing ability is slightly higher than most palms and the shots also rotate rapidly. Unfortunately it is limited in power and is fairly difficult to aim because of its projectiles' strange flight pattern.

Idol description

The Midnight Palm is geared toward defense, with ranged attacks that have a strong potential of nullifying incoming fire. It has powerful but slow shots. Its backward-dash charged shot crushes foes with a gigantic moon.

Damage (near) refers to the damage done when the target is as close as possible. Damage (far) refers to the damage given at maximum range. The symbol "—" means the corresponding stat is not applicable to that specific attack.

  • The Midnight Palm's tattoo shows a rabbit above the wrist. This is likely inspired by the Jade Rabbit of Japanese and Chinese folklore, which is said to live on the moon.
