Needle palm is a palm in Kid Icarus: Uprising. Its shots are fast, and there is almost no range difference between continuous and charged fire, so less strategy is needed. The weapon itself looks like needles tattooed all down the users arm, and the fingers become black. It also make a pink and blue swirling effect down the users arm.

Idol description

This palm fires needles that burrow into targets. They travel fast but have little homing ability. There isn't much difference in range between charged shots and continuous fire, so no need to think to hard about gauging your distance.
