Insight Staff Idol from Kid Icarus: Uprising.

Staffs are a class of projectile weapons in Kid Icarus: Uprising, with long range and the property of increased damage over distance. The design of the Staff in Smash is that of Uprising's Insight Staff, which is said to be good for beginners.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

As an item[edit]

The Staff swiftly fires a thin laser beam straight ahead. The damage dealt by the laser increases with its distance from the user.



  • The Japanese translation of the Staff class in Kid Icarus: Uprising is the Ancestor Staff (祖杖, Sojou).
