Confirmations that Upperdash Arm is the new Side-Special and the Guardian Orbitars are the new Down-Special. Arlight (talk) 11:27, 18 December 2013 (EST)

That is not an official site, it's making assumptions just like any other fansite. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Inconceivable 11:29, 18 December 2013 (EST)
You're right. I just realized a few moments after posting it. Apologies! :S Arlight (talk) 12:07, 18 December 2013 (EST)


If I'm not entirely mistaken, that weapon is called the Up-Dash Arm, from Kid Icarus Uprising. What's with all this Upperdash Arm nonsense? 15:21, 24 February 2014 (EST)

Every source I know of calls it the Upperdash Arm. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Polychromatic 15:33, 24 February 2014 (EST)
Then every source you know of has been fed balogna recently. I've played Uprising, and I frequently use the Up-Dash Arm! 12:47, 25 February 2014 (EST)
Then show us your source. Miles (talk) 12:58, 25 February 2014 (EST)
A Google search for "Up-Dash Arm" returns a whopping 3 results, none of which are video game-related. On the other hand "Upperdash Arm" returns 3,600, with the whole first page being Uprising or SSB4-related. Source or not, I'm not inclined to believe you. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Incomperable 14:29, 25 February 2014 (EST)
It's called Upperdash in my Uprising, I've played around 200 hours so I think I would know. Maybe Up-dash is the name in a different version, such as european, ect? FirstaLasto 15:21, 25 February 2014 (EST)
On my Uprising, there's no Upperdash. I checked Bing for Both and got more results in Up-Dash. 15:24, 25 February 2014 (EST)
Well regardless, it was called the Upperdash Arm in Sakurais developer direct, so we ought to use that name. FirstaLasto 16:07, 25 February 2014 (EST)
WHAT?! NO! He said Up-Dash! Do you need to turn up your hearing aids or something? 13:23, 28 February 2014 (EST)
Nope, the voiceover for that video clearly says "upperdash", this isn't even an argument. I don't know exactly what you're trying to prove here; we have a mountain of proof in our favour and you have shown none. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Rainbow 13:28, 28 February 2014 (EST)
That's because I can't take screenshots of KIU! 13:40, 28 February 2014 (EST)
Well, if in the future you can post proof that your version of the game is different (maybe with a Miiverse screenshot or something, I'm not 100% sure how that works on 3DS), I suggest you first bring it up on our partner Icaruspedia. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Celeritous 13:49, 28 February 2014 (EST)
[1] Here is a picture of the (I think European) AR Card, so I know it's Upperdash in that version too. What the heck version are you playing, IP? FirstaLasto 13:59, 28 February 2014 (EST)
Well, I checked Bing, and only got related results for upperdash arm. Up-dash arm has no Kid Icarus results when searching Bing or Google. Don't lie to people who know more than you, or you'll get in even more trouble. This argument is pointless and one-sided. I've gotten in trouble when I was younger, and lying never helped. SeanWheeler (talk) 15:44, 28 February 2014 (EST)


Can't edit the page, I'm an IP. Since I got pictures before noticing the semi-protection, I can just post them and let someone else do it.

Go to the bottom of the page and select "Pit." There are 10 images, along w/ 4-5 images that we don't have. 18:38, 23 March 2014 (EDT)

We don't really need every single image ever posted unless they show something unique. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Bold 18:47, 23 March 2014 (EDT)

New picture[edit]

I have uploaded a new photo for the article. Please add ASAP! Link to photo:File:SSB4 Palutena's arrow 3DS.jpeg —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mirai-chan (talkcontribs) 16:14, March 13, 2014 (CDT)


The demos from E3, Best Buy, and Nintendo World have pretty much confirmed that Antony voices Pit in the game itself. I can't edit the page, though, so it would be great if someone did it. Nintendocan (talk) 02:14, 9 July 2014 (EDT)

Was listening carefully, and indeed it is Antony. I already edited accordingly. Berrenta (talk) 08:59, 9 July 2014 (EDT)

Changes from Brawl? (Please confirm)[edit]

After some time playing Brawl after using Pit in 3DS, it seems like Pit gained a slightly altered animation for his forward smash in the new games. The new animation seems to give the second hit more horizontal range, but slightly less vertical range. Can someone confirm this change and add it to the page if it's not just my imagination? -- 21:15, 20 November 2014 (EST)

Can anyone help me with this?[edit]

I've collected some data regarding Pit's moveset, and I'm still in the process of collecting it, but I'm not sure how exactly to format this guide. If someone could provide with some assistance, I'd be very grateful. —Preceding unsigned comment added by AgiosGiorgos (talkcontribs) 00:56, 7 December 2014 (EST)

Pit Buff/Nerf Debate[edit]

I'm going to be changing Pit's Changes from Brawl section to say that he was nerfed. He was nerfed quite a bit in the transition and despite the buffs, they don't seem to compensate. He has a small playerbase, and some players seem to be dropping him in favor of Dark Pit due to Electroshock arm, At tool that Pit has no access to. If anyone disagrees, let me know.Nightgengale (talk) 09:11, 23 January 2016 (EST)

Being ranked 18/56 in Smash 4 is better than being ranked 17/38 in Brawl (17 and 18 are one spot apart, but Smash 4's cast is significantly bigger). I think you were too quick to judge Pit, especially since Pit did not have particularly impressive results in Brawl outside of Earth (and Koolaid, to a lesser extent). As for Smash 4, Earth is once again the main one representing Pit, having some solid results, including tournament wins in Japan (winning Pre-KVO 2015, beating Ranai twice in the process) and placing Top 16 at GENESIS 3. On top of that, Nairo also had solid wins with Pit when he actively used him as a main. PokemonMasterJamal3 (talk) 04:26, 2 February 2016 (EST)
Slow down buddy. This new tier list will inevitably change. Looking at all of the data, Pit was nerfed, but may be considered better relative to the cast. Nairo doesn't play the pits anymore, and when he did, he often chose DP over Pit. Give it time is all i'm saying. There are some things on the new tier list that I think everyone disagrees with, and certain character placements reek of bias. Pit has better results in Japan true, but remember that in Brawl he was considered top 8, and he has ALWAYS had more rep and results in Japan. But in AMERICA, he has always had notably less.Nightgengale (talk) 13:05, 2 February 2016 (EST)
"More rep in Japan for Brawl" is a bit of an exaggeration... Earth and Musashi (I actually forgot about Musashi earlier when I wrote my previous comment, whoops) were the only Japanese Pit players in Brawl that were getting any results. PokemonMasterJamal3 (talk) 13:54, 2 February 2016 (EST)
Either way, Pit was much higher on the japanese brawl tier list. Besides, the tier list page admits that the relevancy of the tier list for sm4sh is debatable anyways.Nightgengale (talk) 15:01, 2 February 2016 (EST)
OBJECTION!! Pit was nerfed directly, but aren't we going to count the removal of hitstun and momentum cancelling as an indirect buff? His increased speed and the nerf of many fighters also brings indirect buffs. I would seriously consider saying he was nerfed, and yep, he was a high tier in Brawl in Japan, but the tier list used here is NTSC, so... he is tecnically better here, only a slight bit worse in Japan. --BeepYouSignature.png The 70's called.
