Mahvas (マーヴァ, Mahva) are enemies from Kid Icarus: Uprising.
Mahvas are enemies introduced in Kid Icarus: Uprising and are affiliated with the Forces of Nature. It functions similarly to a Shildeen from the Underworld Army: it projects a shield to protect its allies. Unlike the shields produced by Shildeens, however, a Mahva's shield has a shorter range of effect.
Mahvas appear as enemies. They surround themselves with a large barrier, which also protects other enemies inside its area. The barrier is impassable and pushes players on touch. However it can be attacked: after repeated hits it will turn yellow, then red and in the end it will shatter, leaving the Mahva vulnerable and making it attempt to run away. If left alone for long enough, it will regenerate the barrier at full strength again.
