The Stealth Claws are one of the twelve Claw variations in Kid Icarus: Uprising. It is unique that it is the only weapon normally capable of firing invisible projectiles. Its charged shots lose power as they travel, but its continuous fire shots gain power as they travel.

Idol description

Forged in darkness and wrapped in the bandages of mummies, these claws are nearly invisible, so the targets of its fast fire may find it hard to find out exactly who is shooting. The claws do have a lower melee power, however.

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.

  • The design of these claws are most likely inspired by the fictional character, Griffin, also known as The Invisible Man from H.G. Well's novel of the same name. The character wore bandages and a pair of sunglasses to allow himself be visible to others.
