Phoenix Arm
Type: Arm
Specializes In: Short ranged/melee combat
Strengths: Causes burning, strong melee combo
Weaknesses: Short charge shot range

The Phoenix Arm is an Arm inspired by the Phoenix from Kid Icarus: Uprising. The arm is shaped like the head of the Phoenix. Its ranged attacks get stronger over a distance. Its melee attacks boast their own power as well. The charged shots are able to burn foes and have high homing ability. It is one of the few weapons whose continuous fire has a longer range than its charged shots.

Idol description

Modeled after the Phoenix, this arm features a unique continuous fire that travels twice as far as its charged shots. The charged shots set foes ablaze, while its continuous-fire attack launches blade feathers.

Base statistics

Weapon data is for weapons with zero ranged and melee stars with no mods to them. Distance refers to the maximum range a shot can travel, measured with non-homing shots. 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.
