Pit goes swimming

Pit standing in a hot spring.

Hot Springs are areas where Pit can slowly recover his health when he stands in one. These are particularly desired in Fortresses; not only are the enemy forces stronger, but the room can be re-entered at any point, making this location something to be remembered once discovered. A Hot Spring will only recover health; it does not cure Pit of the Eggplant Curse, which can only be cured by the Nurse at the Hospital does. If a Hot Spring is overused, the healing powers will fade.


Hot Springs have appeared in all Kid Icarus games to date. They have also appeared in the anime Palutena's Revolting Dinner Part 2.

Kid Icarus

Hot springs first appeared in this adventure, resembling pools of glowing water that replenish Pit's health.

Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters

In this adventure, a mysterious cloaked figure named Crow appears in unguarded Hot Spring chambers. At other times, these chambers may be guarded by Totems. Pit's health recovers much faster here.

Kid Icarus: Uprising

Hot Spring chambers return and share the same purpose as in previous games. Although, a tip showed that it is possible, though rare, that a Hot Spring chamber could lose its healing properties if overused.

In Part 2, back at the castle, Palutena is taking a bath in a hot spring and instructs Pit to gather the carrots, after she was caught in the kitchen explosion. This shows that the springs revives angels and gods.
