Dark Pit using the Power of Flight in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

The Power of Flight is both Pit's and Dark Pit's up special move in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. For Pit, this replaces his up special Wings of Icarus from Super Smash Bros. Brawl. When either Pit or Dark Pit use the move, they briefly charge up and takes off in the direction the player holds the stick in a quick burst of movement.

Dark Pit and Pit share custom variations of this move in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. The first is Striking Flight, which deals slightly more knockback and damage than Pit upon take-off, but can only be used to move at a slight left or right angle. The second variation is Breezy Flight, which does not send Dark Pit as high as the regular move, but is faster to execute and creates a whirlwind when taking off that pushes away opponents.


Power of Flight debuted in Kid Icarus: Uprising, as a limited flight power granted to Pit and Dark Pit during flight combat sections. The color that appears on the user's wings varies depending on which god grants the power: the glow effect will appear blue when granted by Palutena, green when granted by Viridi, purple when taken from Pandora's powers, and pink when the Wings of Pegasus are in use. Other factors may alter the color further, with the god-given color indicating that the user is moving at full speed, yellow indicating that the user has slowed down, and red indicating that the user has come to a halt.

For the Super Smash Bros. series, Pit's wings glow blue, suggesting Palutena granted him this power, and Dark Pit's glows green, suggesting he received it from Viridi.
