Always coming in a pair, orbitars are the physical manifestation of divine power, originally created for defensive purposes. Due to the nature of the separate sources they fire from, orbitars are capable of hitting multiple targets at once. Their shots typically grow stronger the farther they travel, making them most effective at a distance.
When used in close-range combat, orbitars will shift from their positions and quickly spin in front of the user, attacking anything within their radius. However, their melee attacks are weak compared to their ranged capabilities.
|Standard Orbitars||Orbitars are pairs of weapons that fire shots as they hover above their wielder's shoulders, allowing for wholly unimpeded movement. And what the small Standard Orbitars lack in punch they make up for in all-around quality.|
|Guardian Orbitars||These orbitars specialize in defense, for their charged shot raises a shield that has a strong potential of nullifying incoming fire. After throwing up this shield, users should switch to continuous fire as their main method of attack.|
|Shock Orbitars||These orbitars gather their energy from the flaps of Pit's wings, releasing electric projectiles that disperse on impact. Their speed and range are nothing spectacular, but their charged shots have a high homing ability.|
|Eyetrack Orbitars||These orbitars were once sealed inside a cursed royal tomb. Their homing ability is among the best of any weapon, making them very easy to use. However, they lack in terms of attack power and charge time.|
|Fairy Orbitars||Tired of pixies asking you to listen? Try these spritely orbitars on for size! They charge quickly, allowing for consecutive charged shots. Their greatest feature is the ability to confuse enemies.|
|Paw Pad Orbitars||The Paw Pad Orbitars are too cute, aren't they? They have a short charge time, and shots bounce about like an excited kitten. Shield yourself with the backward-dash charged shot, or circle around enemies using continuous fire.|
|Jetstream Orbitars||Charged shots fired from these orbitars may lack any sort of homing, but when they do hit—watch out! They're strong, though generally lose strength the farther they travel. Try knocking foes into the air with charged shots!|
|Boom Orbitars||These burly-looking orbitars fire small bullets that really pack a wallop! Top among orbitars in melee and ranged attack power, they lack any sort of homing ability and slow the user down considerably during continuous fire.|
|Gemini Orbitars||The Zodiac weapon bearing the sign of Gemini. The standard charged shots they fire travel straight, then break suddenly toward their target. This makes the wielder of such orbitars extremely hard to predict in Together mode.|
|Aurum Orbitars||These orbitars were built by literally combining members of the Aurum forces. Their continuous fire unleashes a narrow beam that is limited in range but travels so fast that targets have little time to dodge.|
|Centurion Orbitars||Modeled after Palutena's rank-and-file soldiers, these orbitars fire shots that arc like arrows in flight and are powerful at close range. Their backward-dash charged shots fire centurion-knight shields, and their continuous fire has a long range.|
|Arlon Orbitars||Inspired by Arlon the Serene. But unlike Arlon, this weapon is far from invisible in combat, featuring the longest range of any of the orbitars. Its continuous fire unleashes a stream of the chakrams used by Arlon.|

Palutena: Orbitars are physical manifestations of divine protective powers. While they can be used for attacking, they were originally created to defend.
