Kid Icarus (1986)

Affiliation(s): Medusa
Enemy Type: Aerial

Tros (トロス Torosu) is a spiky, armored ball of an enemy seen in Skyworld's Fortress in Kid Icarus. They adopt a swarming tactic. Pit must be careful and quick in order to minimize the damage inflicted by these monsters. The manual describes them pretty accurately; unless Pit is sufficiently high-powered, these guardians will be a major threat.

Kid Icarus: Uprising

Although Tros do not appear in this game, Ganewmedes fire spiked projectiles that suspiciously look similar to them. Also, the new enemy called the Splin may have been inspired by the Tros.


  • In Greek mythology, Tros was father of Ganymede who grieved for his son after he was taken by Zeus up to Olympus. In return, Zeus granted him two horses that could run over water. Hermes had even comforted Tros that his son was now serving a much higher honor.
  • Tros may have inspired the Glunder/Glire/Glice family of enemies that appear in the Subspace Emissary, being quite similar appearance-wise. Coincidentally, Glunders first appear in the Skyworld stage of the storyline.
