Palutena Bow

Palutena Bow in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

The Palutena Bow (known as Palutena's Arrow in Super Smash Bros. Brawl; also referred to as the Sacred Bow of Palutena[1] and Palutena's Bow) is Pit's standard special move. Pit fires an arrow from the bow that can be controlled with the analog stick. The move can also be charged by holding down the special move button before firing, and can be aimed in either direction or directly up as it charges.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, this move has two custom variants. The first is Piercing Bow (named Bow of Piercing in the PAL version), which is more powerful but takes longer to charge, travels more slowly, and cannot be guided. The second is Guiding Bow (named Bow of Guidance in the PAL version), which gives greater control over the arrow but makes it less powerful.

Dark Pit's version of this move is Silver Bow.

As a standard bow, it's capable of firing arrows of light that can change direction. It can also be split to form two short swords--Pit holds one sword in his right hand in a standard grip and one in his left in a reverse grip. He may hold them like this so he can shift between bow and swords without losing a beat.
