Password

Jump to navigation Jump to search

In the NES version of Kid Icarus, passwords were used to continue a game after turning the system off, exactly the same way as the password system in Metroid. Upon a game over, players would see 24 characters arranged in 4 groups of 6 called Sacred Words in the actual game and would be entered after selecting continue on the main menu. Nintendo Power released several passwords in the Volume 1, Number 3 issue. Similar to Metroid, there were many codes that had strange, and game-changing effects. The passwords were never present in the Famicom, Virtual Console, or 3D Classic versions as well as the sequel, Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters.

This challenge password starts the game in stage 1-2, starts you off with a debt of 4,095 hearts, makes it look like you have 99 feathers and mallets, but in reality you only get 1 when you get to a fortress and the feathers don't work. Only one of the weapons from the Sacred Training Chamber will work while the other 2 can be collected, but will only go towards a better ending. It will appear you have 5 strength arrows, but you actually have just 1 and you can't upgrade it. Your arrows do 9 damage against bosses instead of the normal 1 damage.
