The Reaper is a recurring enemy in the Kid Icarus series. They usually appear on their own, ignoring anything that passes through them. If they see Pit, they will zoom into the closest spot available and will summon Reapettes until either they or Pit are defeated, or when Pit moves out of its sight. Reapers have a smaller variant named Reapettes, whom are summoned by them. Both of them appear in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS as enemies in Smash Run, and retain their behavior from the Kid Icarus series.

Although Reapers are enemies, they are treated as bosses in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. Like in their series of origin, they walk on their own until they see the player, at which point they stop and start summoning Reapettes. While they are summoning Reapettes, the current playing music will change into 8-bit music. If players get close to the Reaper, the Reaper swings its scythe at them. Reapers can be stunned with powerful attacks unlike most boss enemies. If the Reaper is defeated, it may release stat boosts and even items including the Heart Container. Finally, some events in Smash Run optionally has the player defeat a Reaper for the reward of large stat boosts.

Reapers also appear in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U in Smash Tour. If a fighter runs into one on the board, they are granted a checkpoint bonus in exchange for three of their fighters. If the player does not have enough fighters, they are launched away.

- Flag of USA.png Since he's clearly not planning on doing any gardening, watch out for that scythe! He loved to scream and summon Reapettes in Kid Icarus: Uprising. In Smash Tour, you'll need to have at least three fighters when you encounter him to earn a Checkpoint Bonus. If you don't bring enough fighters, you'll get launched. Ouch!
Flag of Europe.png A foe that appears in Kid Icarus: Uprising, wielding a rather intimidating scythe. In that game, he'd go berserk if you entered his line of sight, calling in his Reapette minions to attack. In Smash Tour, bump into him with three or more fighters to get a Checkpoint Bonus. Be careful, though! With two or fewer, you'll just get launched!
