Pit is a playable character in the Super Smash Bros. series. He is from the Kid Icarus series and serve as the main protagonist of the serves. He makes his debut to the series in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.


Pit is an angel from Angel Land. His wings are only strong enough to fly for short distances, unless he uses the Wings of Pegasus. Taking up his sacred bow to stop the dark goddess Medusa after she attacked his home of Skyworld and imprisoned Palutena, he set out to gather the Three Sacred Treasures: the Light Arrow, the Mirror Shield, and the Wings of Pegasus. Fighting his way through the Underworld, Overworld and Skyworld, Pit was able to gather the three treasures and defeat Medusa, ending her threat.

Super Smash Bros. series

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Pit appears as a new playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. He has been heavily redesigned from his original appearance and Melee Trophy, taking on more realistic proportions, having an anime look to him, and looking much more elegant overall.

The design created for Pit in this game is used in the third game in the Kid Icarus series, Kid Icarus: Uprising, which largely owes its existence to Pit's appearance in Brawl.

Super Smash Bros. 4

Pit returns as a playable character in the game and he was joined by fellow characters Dark Pit and Palutena.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Pit returns as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Unlike in Brawl and Smash 4, he is an unlockable character rather than a starter character. He largely keeps his moveset from Smash 4, but his Final Smash has been changed to the Lightning Chariot, where he rides the Lightning Chariot and fires onto opponents on the stage, similar to the Dragoon item.


  • Pit is one of four characters to have appeared since Brawl to have a different Final Smash across every installment; the other three are Zero Suit Samus, King Dedede, and R.O.B..
  • When Pit is Star KO'd, he shouts, "I never learned how to read!" This is a reference to a line of dialogue he uses in Kid Icarus: Uprising. This makes Pit the first character in the Super Smash Bros. series to speak a full sentence during a Star KO.
