Jitterthugs are troops in the Forces of Nature. Pit will have to alternate between ranged attacks and melee attacks depending on what color the Jitterthug is. When the Jitterthug turns red, only ranged attacks affect it. In this state, it rampages around the stage and attacks Pit by ramming into him. This makes it difficult to keep far enough from the Jitterthug to use ranged attacks against it. When it turns green, only melee attacks affect it. When a Jitterthug is in this state, it stands still for the most part and attacks by shooting one to three fireballs at Pit. These fireballs makes getting close enough for a melee attack difficult.
Depending on which way its mask is facing, Jitterthug looks like either an old man or a furious monster. Each of these "personas" has its own traits: the old man is unaffected by ranged shots, while the angry monster is immune to melee strikes.
