Palutena's Army (パルテナ親衛隊 Parutena Shin'eitai Palutena Elite/Imperial Guards) is Pit's Final Smash, where he calls to the goddess Palutena for her army of Centurions (He shouts "All troops! Move out!"). An enormous image of Palutena will appear in the sky (which is transparent on most stages, but is easier seen on stages such as Final Destination). The Centurions fly onto screen ramming into other players at incredibly high speeds. When hit by a Centurion, the opponent takes a range of 15-25%. Each Centurion makes a single attack to a character, and then falls in battle. During the course of the attack, Pit is not bound to a position. Therefore, he is free to move and attack as he pleases. However, unlike most characters, he is not invincible during his Final Smash. When fighting against an opponent using this, they can attack some Centurions to prevent them from attacking, but it is better to dodge, though a Smart Bomb is useful for eliminating multiple threats. This move is similar to Waddle Dee Army.
 Instruction booklet description
Call up an immense image of Palutena, Goddess of Light. Pit, captain of Palutena's Army, commands the Centurions to dive-bomb into enemies.
 Trophy description
Pit's Final Smash. An image of the goddess Palutena appears, heralding the arrival of Pit's legions, the Centurions. These flying warriors proceed to attack all enemies with fierce savagery. Once a Centurion strikes an enemy, he falls from the sky, never to fly again. Centurions are so fast that dodging them is very hard. Take heart, Centurions! Your deaths are not in vain!
In the original Kid Icarus for the Nintendo Entertainment System, the Centurions played a large role in boss fortresses. On those particular levels, Pit could find hammers and use them to break open statues scattered around the area, freeing the Centurion trapped inside. When Pit eventually reaches the boss chamber, any Centurions that he rescued will fly in and attack the enemy. However, this only effectively damaged Twinbellows; Hewdraw was too hard to hit and Pandora beat them with ease. This is where the Palutena's Army attack concept is taken from. Just as in Brawl, the Centurions in Kid Icarus would perish after being hit a single time, though they could attack repeatedly in the original game. They did not return for the sequel; Centurion statues are present, but they only hold items now.
