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

In Smash Run[edit]

Reapers appear as enemies, using their design from Kid Icarus: Uprising. They remain stationary and look around themselves, and upon noticing a player, they start attacking, sending out homing Reapettes which make characters trip on contact. If close enough, they also attack with a scythe swipe which does high damage and knockback. While a Reaper is activated, a whimsical 8-bit tune (the same heard in the Kid Icarus series in the same circumstance) overrides any prior music.

Trophy Description[edit]

The Reaper trophy is a standard random unlock in the 3DS version.

You can tell when one of these has its sights set on you because the music will change and you'll hear a loud scream as it summons its Reapettes. If you always keep your distance and attack from afar, there's no need to fear the Reapers.

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U[edit]

In Smash Tour[edit]

A Reaper can appear as a random event. It roams around the board, and when touched by a player, it grants them a checkpoint bonus in exchange for three fighters before disappearing. Players with less than three characters just get launched away.

Trophy Description[edit]

In the Wii U version, the Reaper trophy is a Challenge reward obtained by defeating at least four opponents with Pit in Cruel Smash.

In Smash Tour, you'll need to have at least three fighters when you encounter him to earn a Checkpoint Bonus. If you don't bring enough fighters, you'll get launched. Ouch!
pal A foe that appears in Kid Icarus: Uprising, wielding a rather intimidating scythe. In that game, he'd go berserk if you entered his line of sight, calling in his Reapette minions to attack. In Smash Tour, bump into him with three or more fighters to get a Checkpoint Bonus. Be careful, though! With two or fewer, you'll just get launched!

Origin[edit]

Official artwork of a Reaper and a Reapette in Kid Icarus: Uprising.

Reapers are among the more powerful minions of the Underworld Army, and are responsible for ferrying the souls of the dead to the underworld. They first appeared in the original Kid Icarus with a fairly generic "grim reaper" design. They patrol their assigned areas slowly, but upon seeing Pit, they will go berserk and summon a swarm of flying Reapettes to attack, accompanied by frantic music.

In Kid Icarus Uprising, Reapers return with a more distinctive design, though their behavior remains similar. They are prominently featured in the fourth chapter, where Pit must infiltrate their fortress. The boss of the area is the gigantic Great Reaper.
