Palutena Blade
Type: Blade

Weaknesses: Weak melee attacks, standing shots have short range, dash shots and charge shots lose significant power over distance

The Palutena Blade is a Blade in Kid Icarus: Uprising. It is one of few weapons created for Palutena. The weapon itself resembles Palutena's gold sleeve on her left arm, with the primary colors being gold and blue. When ever it uses melee attacks it releases what appears to be a plumage of green and purple feathers. It fires fast moving projectiles that resemble hunks of glitter, with charged shots firing large projectiles resembling Palutena's characteristic halo. Its shots can cancel out other projectiles and have above average range, similar to a typical bow, making them effective for hitting enemies at long ranges. However, the weapon itself has weak melee and mediocre ranged power, making it ineffective at quick kills. Its shots also lose a noticeable amount of power over distance.

Idol description

The rare example of a weapon ordered by Palutena. While it's charged shots have a strong potential of nullifying enemy fire and it's continuous-fire dash shots travel fast, they aren't particularly strong. However, its dash shots have great range.
