Nutskis (ポックリ, Pokkuri) are batlike enemies from the Kid Icarus series. They appear simply as one-eyed nuts with leaves on their sides (which act as wings).


Nutskis are basic enemies in Kid Icarus: Uprising as part of Viridi's Forces of Nature. Functionally, they are the Forces of Nature equivalent of the Underworld Army's Monoeye.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS[edit]

In Smash Run[edit]

Nutskis appear as enemies in Smash Run, flitting around and pausing periodically (about every 6 seconds) to attack the player with seeds. Nutski attack in either rounds of three small seeds that bounce off of walls (1% damage), or one large, explosive seed (11% damage). They are best handled with ranged attacks, as their erratic movement can make them hard to catch.

Trophy information[edit]

Trophy in for 3DS.
NTSC A grunt in the Forces of Nature from Kid Icarus: Uprising. It was created by Viridi when she removed a chestnut from its shell and blessed it. In Smash Run, they move quickly and in difficult-to-predict ways. When fighters get close, they'll flip upside down and fire three seeds.
PAL These great-tasting grunts from the Forces of Nature in Kid Icarus: Uprising came to life when they were blessed by Viridi. In Smash Run, they move quickly in a jittery, off-kilter way. Get close, and they'll turn upside-down and fire seeds at you. Occasionally those seeds will do a lot of extra damage, so watch out!
