"Pit was originally slated to appear already in SSB, but was replaced by Jigglypuff because she was believed to be more economically viable (i.e. her being in the game would sell more copies than Pit being in it)."

Source, please? --nealdt 06:19, August 2, 2006 (GMT)

Bizarre... What's Pit doing at this title? SmashWiki talk:Article of the Week/2007-27... Is it a new system? Erik the Appreciator 01:30, July 6, 2007 (EDT)

move names?[edit]

i know it says tentative, but can someone list a source where that came from? a person, a site, an article... something? FyreNWater - (TalkContributions ) 17:11, October 15, 2007 (EDT) Nate says "Whirling Blade" at 5:48 Aeris 20:11, October 15, 2007 (EDT)

I really don't think we'll be getting any confirmation on the DOJO!! about the names of Pit's other moves. Not only that, but the Mirror Shield is the official name (per the original Kid Icarus) of one of the three "Legendary Treasures." Do we really need an official confirmation on it? I can understand about the Whirling Blade, but Mirror Shield is almost painfully obvious. Aeris 17:58, October 19, 2007 (EDT)

not everyone is familiar, so "Whirling Blade" and "Mirror Shield" are equally as made-up to me. FyreNWater - (TalkContributions ) 19:11, October 19, 2007 (EDT)
That's not a good basis, though--and I don't mean that offensively. Most anyone who has played Kid Icarus could tell you the names of the three Legendary Treasures: the Light Arrow, the Wings of Pegasus, and the Mirror Shield. True, the names of the arrow and wings have been altered only slightly, but those are likely only to simplify them for those unfamiliar with the Kid Icarus series. "Palutena Arrow" is likely used because Palutena gives Pit his bow in the SE clips (and to further strengthen the bond as exemplified in SE and his FS); "Wings of Icarus" is probably used just because it's less confusing for people to hear "Icarus" and relate it to Kid Icarus than it would be for them to hear "Pegasus" and wonder what happened. The best part about the Mirror Shield? There's honestly no way they could change it without being intentionally arbitrary. Just my two cents. To me and anyone else who is familiar with the original game, it's obviously Mirror Shield; take that as you will. Aeris 19:58, October 19, 2007 (EDT)
Not like I have a specualtion vendetta against Mirror shield, but where can I see some evidence, video or otherwise?--Oxico 11:35, December 31, 2007 (EST) That link mentions all three of the Legendary Treasures. There's a gif floating around that serves as a screen capture of Pit utilizing the Mirror Shield in the Subspace Emissary. It can also be seen in a few assorted E for All videos. Aeris 01:20, January 2, 2008 (EST)

I removed the speculation and linked to the proper source. A Japanese SWF member translated the info on Pit's card, giving us the OFFICIAL names of his two remaining Special Moves: Angel Ring, and Mirror Shield. (Does that last one sound familiar? Hmm?) Aeris 04:27, January 12, 2008 (EST)

Wouldn't a better source be pg 32 of the brawl manual? link6616


Why did you change "goddess" to "godess"? Aeris 00:05, October 16, 2007 (EDT)

my bad, i just reverted it without double-checking it. there's other stuff that i fixed as well. FyreNWater - (TalkContributions ) 03:07, October 16, 2007 (EDT)

Pit finding mario as a trophy?[edit]

Um, when was this explained/made up? --Darkangelsv1 -- :P 13:49, December 5, 2007 (EST)

It was seen on one of the videos at E for All. - Brawlmatt202 15:23, December 5, 2007 (EST)
i saw that on some gaming site. i wanna say Game Informer, but i have no idea. i would look for the link, but i should be studying for finals. <__<;;; FyreNWater - (TalkContributions ) 16:38, December 5, 2007 (EST)
Its Gametrailer. I did my homework!!! anyways I got an F, F of Fandangox jo JOOO joo. \--Fandangox 16:39, December 5, 2007 (EST)

Mirror Shield[edit]

I have seen proper evidence for the Bow Spin, but I have not seen the "Mirror Shield." Could someone show me some auctual evidence? --Oxico 08:12, January 6, 2008 (EST)

Watch out for dick pit?!?[edit]

the whole Pit in brawl page got deleted and now all there is is "Watch out for Dickpit." someone plz help me put all the ersed info back onto the pageJtM 17:45, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

It's been taken care of. Someone on a proxy was vandalizing large amounts of the wiki. The mods haven't banned the person yet though... - Gargomon251 18:30, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Pit help[edit]

Ok, I just want to bring up one little argument I got going on with some of my friends and other gamers. They criticize Pit as being to unfair and rigged, that it takes no skill to use him and he is for beginners. They also say that he is a pussy and because he is an Angel, he has no Penis or Balls.. Wtf?! They ask me "Why would an Angel need balls? Even if he had them, they haven't dropped yet". What should I do about this to finally set it straight? -do1bal —Preceding unsigned comment added by Do1bal (talkcontribs) 14:08, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

This argument is ludicrous and juvenile, and not appropriate here. But I will say that people that consider characters "cheap" simply have no skill at countering or dodging. If someone always uses the same attack, doesn't that mean you should see it coming and be able to avoid it? Also Stale-Move Negation. And DI. -Gargomon251 (talk) 15:13, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Question: How do you perform Wing Refreshing? There used to be a page with it, there isn't now, I'm a Pit user, and I want to know. Can someone recreate it or at least have instructions on this page? Thanks.

Is this even possible?[edit]

In the "Tips and Strategies" Section, there is one tip saying that you could take advantage of Pit's ability to curve his arrow into a complete circle and continuously loop multiple arrows for later use via directing the arrows at opponents. Now, I can loop Pit's arrows maybe once or twice, but come on. Has anybody really been able to pull this technique off? Shade487z (talk) 03:19, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

Yes. Not practical to do very many in an actual battle, or to save them for later, but it could be done.–Entrea Sumatae 21:22, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

I only do that in SD because u can have 3 arrow spinning and with'in 3 sec you can kill every one when they let there gard down and thought the arrows were gone, but to keep them spinning is hard u can just let themn fly up and with'in 17 sec you have to drop them back down

One Small Problem[edit]

Nearly every time I come back on to Pit, there is some new con. People who can't beat Pit have decided to come on here and add bogus cons. I am not a fan of Pit but, I don't want SmashWiki so be based on wrongful cons. If someone can respond to this or has already done something than please tell me.

  • The one catching my eye is the lightweight one. But Pit is barely any lighter than Mario. And his Falling speed is just about equal too. Honestly, it displeases me when people say Pit is not cheap, unless you can explain how to break through the arrows efficiently enough that he doesn't ram you with the Side B and set you up for being KBed back into distance where he goes back into showering you with arrows. No, you can't DI the Side B very efficiently, I have tried. MasterKnight (talk) 23:31, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
No character is cheap. All of them can be beaten. oh yes and its called sidestepping/shielding and just plain dodging. Pit is VERY vulnerable in this form and has to constantly stear them. - Hatake91 (talk) 02:22, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

About Pit being cheap...[edit]

I'm not too keen on calling characters cheap, and do not believe any character is cheap, but anyone who uses wi-fi knows what most Pit users do, thus, he is referred to as being cheap and annoying, (seriously hearing Pit's Side Special umm sound is rather annoying if heard for the whole 2 minutes). This has led other people to despise Pit. I'm not too big on the move spamming, but what someone posted before (about the rather stupid and inapropriate comment) is a example. Kirbyblue 22:25, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

I use pit for over 200 wifi matches and i dont spam and i have never seen some one spam with pit. The most used Moves are kirbys up B Meta Knights B and Zeldas Side b and i see that every time i go on wifi so i think that thos are the only cheep charaters. And if you noticed ever time u beat some one twice inb a row they come in the next match as meta knight have any one els seen that.

You dare insult Pit? Nah, I've seen several not cheap Pits. For one, I'm a Pit user and I use the arrows at the beginning, smash attacks and side a's, and then use the Side B. If the opponet runs away, Pit can shoot him with the arrows. I might use the Side B a bit often though. ---Austin8310-FALCON-DOUBLE FAULT! 11:32, May 28, 2010 (UTC)


I noticed this page was marked for cleanup. Does anyone have any ideas on how to improve this page? Berrenta (talk) 10:27, 13 July 2014 (EDT)

Just checked history, and the reason was in the edit summary, so I'll see what I can do about this page. Berrenta (talk) 13:08, 21 August 2014 (EDT)
Added moveset tables, now to remove cleanup icon 18:01, 6 May 2015 (EDT)
