Viridi (ナチュレ, Nature) is a character from the Kid Icarus series.
Introduced in Kid Icarus: Uprising, Viridi is the Goddess of Nature. She is known for having a strong hatred for all humans, due to the actions of some harming the forests and wildlife of the planet, as well as for the Underworld Army, due to their complete disregard for life. When introduced, she is an antagonist who commands the "Forces of Nature", her army of troops made up of organic materials. Her goal is to eradicate humans for damaging the ecosystem, and does so by using Reset Bombs that cause mass destruction before overgrowing the area of impact. After Pit escapes his seal from the Chaos Kin, Viridi gives Pit the Power of Flight in the same way Palutena does and assists him in his mission of freeing Palutena from the Chaos Kin's mind control.
As a background character
The Reset Bomb Forest stage in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS depicts a battle between human nations from Kid Icarus: Uprising. After a minute has elapsed, Viridi appears in the background, far away from the stage, yells "Good riddance, human scum! The world is better off without you!" and drops a Reset Bomb, triggering the stage's transformation into an overgrown ruin. Upon reverting back to its original form, she will yell "Go! Stubborn vermin!" Both of these clips are recycled from Kid Icarus: Uprising.
In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Viridi appears alongside Palutena in several of Pit's Smash Taunt to remark on other fighters. These conversations reuse her various portraits from Kid Icarus Uprising. Viridi also makes a brief voiced cameo in Palutena's reveal trailer, commenting on how "angels only talk big".
As a costume
A paid downloadable content costume for Mii Swordfighters based on Viridi was made available on September 30th, 2015. Nintendo also released a QR code for those who wish to have the exact Mii used in the costume's advertising.
Viridi's trophy is exclusive to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.
- Viridi, Goddess of Nature
- The goddess of nature, she believes it is her duty to return heaven and earth to their pure states, and so she labels humans as contaminants of nature that should be eliminated. She butts heads with human-protecting Palutena but hates soul-stealing Hades even more.
- The Goddess of Nature – of the earth and all living things. Viridi strongly believes in natural balance, and as far as she's concerned, humans throw that balance off entirely. She hates mankind for that, and Palutena for protecting them, but at the same time, she's not exactly keen on the Underworld Army's soul harvesting, either.
As a background character
Viridi reprises her role in the Reset Bomb Forest stage and in Palutena's Guidance conversations. In the former, she is now a fully rendered and animated CGI model rather than a static image.
As a costume
Both the Viridi Wig and the Viridi Outfit reappear in Ultimate, now included in the base game.
Viridi also appears as a Legend-class support spirit.
In Adventure Mode: World of Light, Viridi is presumably one of the countless spirits captured by Galeem during his takeover of the universe. Viridi's spirit is located in the shrouded woods section of The Light Realm.
Viridi uses a Mii Swordfighter wearing the Viridi Wig and Outfit and is fought on the Reset Bomb Forest stage, which features Viridi as a stage element. She is fought along a Giant Kirby representing her minion, Cragalanche. During the battle, the player's fighter must defeat the Mii Swordfighter in fifty-five seconds, referencing how Pit must prevent Viridi from detonating a Reset Bomb on the clashing human armies. Also, the Giant Kirby frequently uses Stone, referencing Cragalanche's rocky exterior and ground slam attacks.

Names in other languages
- Early builds of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS featured Viridi with roses on her headband when she appeared in the background of the Reset Bomb Forest stage. The portrait in the final game, however, lacks these roses.
- Viridi is the only Kid Icarus character to have her voice actor changed from SSB4 to Ultimate.
- When editing a Mii Swordfighter with the Viridi costume, the staff appears to be much larger and longer; however, it reverts to normal size in a match.
