Nukleens are airborne mines introduced in Kid Icarus: Uprising.
Nukleens are similar in behavior to Minos and Bumpety Bombs. They gently float toward their opponents and explode when they become close to them. Their explosions will inflict a burning status on Pit or any enemies that survive their large blast radius.
A Nuckleen is a mine that the Aurum often use to conquer planets. They explode when attacked, erupting in a wide range explosion that deals damage to friends and foes alike, so they can be used to Pit's advantage.
