Autoreticle (オート照準, Auto Alignment) is Palutena's neutral special move in Super Smash Bros. 4 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.


The range of Autoreticle.
Autoreticle's range; the reticle will aim anywhere within the highlighted space.

Palutena locks on to a fighter in front of her, indicated by a green reticle that then flashes to red, then she fires three blasts of light at them from her staff; each blast deals about 2.9%. The reticle does not follow the targeted opponent's movement, and can only lock on if there is an opponent in the move's range, such opponent is not invincible or intangible, and there are no obstacles – such as platforms or items – in the way.

If no opponent is in range, Palutena goes through the move animation, but no reticle appears and no projectiles are fired.

The Icon in Kid Icarus Uprising.

Autoreticle, an enhancement-type power, is one of the many powers Palutena lends to Pit in Kid Icarus: Uprising. When Pit uses this power, he automatically targets enemies for a period of time while attacking; this is shown by the power moving Pit's reticle over the enemy or enemies in front of him. The reticle itself resembles the one in Uprising.

The three energy shots may be based on a similar attack that Palutena uses as a boss in Uprising.
