Pit teams up with Viridi when the Chaos Kin posseses Palutena. Dark Pit also joins in later.
Reset Bomb Pod - AR Card
Palutena, Viridi, Medusa, and Pit all team up against Hades for the final boss fight. Uprising introduces a boss version, the Great Reaper. Repeat: she drops a self-described natural accelerator, which generates a giant forest, on a completely artificial structure, which is under the control of someone who may be the sun god and definitely has fire powers. Pyrrhon laughs it off and sets it aflame. Everybody Hates Hades : Thanatos, the god of Death, is a high-ranking, and highly evil, member of the Underworld Army.
The fact that the Underworld is constantly invading the Earth and Heavens also qualifies. In addition, the Underworld Army is actually headed by its god, Hades, who out-evils everyone else.
BOOK REVIEW: These Broken Stars (Starbound #1) by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner |
His only motivation in Uprising is to cause as much death and destruction as he can in order to bring more souls to his domain, for him to do with as he pleases. This earns him the ire of everyone , from Pit and Palutena, to the human-hating Nature goddess Viridi, to even Medusa herself! Everything's Sparkly with Jewelry : Palutena wore two pieces of jewelry in the first two games. In the third, she wears three if you don't count the jewelry that's woven into her clothing. Played Straighter with Medusa and Hades, who are naturally giant. Although Medusa may have done something to get bigger, as her humanoid form wasn't so large in the first game.
Evil Knockoff : Dark Pit is a failed attempt as he wants to kill his creators more than his template and later on turns out to be an Anti-Hero. Exact Words : Some of the chapter titles make more sense in hindsight. Chapter 9 is titled "Medusa's Final Battle". And it's completely true.
It's Medusa's final battle, but it is nowhere near Pit's final battle. But then he eats Pit, and it becomes clear that the Lord of the Underworld is the level. Chapter 25 is titled "The War's End" in the fact that, when Hades is gone, the war is finally over. Extreme Omnivore : Palutena doesn't seem to ever have food far from her mind. She often speculates on the culinary qualities of various enemies and bosses, and at one point even theorizes about spicy angel wings, when Pit is in danger of being electrocuted.
In the short animation, Palutena's Revolting Dinner, she is completely unperturbed by the fact that the carrots she was preparing gained sentience, and was still intent on cutting them up and cooking them. As if swallowing Pit whole wasn't already rather extremely omnivorous, Hades reacts to Pit questioning how he can punch through his stomach by swallowing assorted enemies and objects whole just for Pit to deal with.
Pit's own like for food gets mocked here and there as well. Hades has these as well. Fake-Out Fade-Out : After Medusa gets taken down in Chapter 9, it looks like the adventure's over and a retro 8-bit credit sequence starts rolling. Then Hades interrupts the whole thing and shows it ain't over yet. Fake Ultimate Hero : Unlike most examples, Pyrrhon is a capable fighter in addition to a capable schemer, but like most he's not as heroic as he would have his peers believe.
Fallen Angel : Dark Pit looks the part, and "fell" within seconds after being born! The goddess who created him was evil, so it's not so bad. Fanservice : Probably the only reason why the second part of Palutena's Revolting Dinner starts with Palutena in a hot spring. To give you a basic idea of what the scene looks like, look here.
Stay on target
Chapter 22 does this at the end with Amazon Pandora. If the female public was disappointed, they have the shirtless Pit scene right after the fight. Family-Friendly Firearms : Most ranged weapons in the game have goofy, futuristic, or otherwise abstract designs.

The sole aversion is the Flintlock Staff, which actually is a Sniper Rifle , just styled to superficially resemble a flintlock which is itself a real gun and suffixed with "staff" instead. This results in him having his wings burnt and his bones showing.http://soilstones.com/wp-content/2020-03-04/
