Palutena's Army, as seen in Palutena's Revolting Dinner.

Palutena's Army (パルテナ軍 Parutena-gun, "Palutena Army"), also referred to as the Icarus Army,[1] is the primary faction of the Kid Icarus series. Ruled by Palutena, they are responsible for the well-being of mankind. Their forces are mainly comprised of Centurion troops, with Pit acting as their captain.


Notable Members

  • Palutena: The founder and leader of the army.
  • Pit: Palutena's pupil, as well as the captain of her royal guard.


  • Centurions: Average troops that excel in archery.
  • Centurion Knights: Centurions that excel in defense, these armored troops carry a shield and a halberd.
  • Centurion Strongarms: Large Centurions that excel in brute strength, these troops use their fists and barbells for battle.
  • Juggernauts: Large catapults with human-like faces, they were manufactured to defend the army.


Kid Icarus

After Medusa kidnaps Palutena, she turns all of the Centurions to stone. The Centurions can be freed by hitting their statues with a Mallet. Once freed, the Centurions will aid Pit during his fight with a Fortress Gatekeeper.

Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters

Instead of being solely in Fortresses, Centurions can be found in most stages, having been petrified like in the original Kid Icarus.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Palutena's Army is Pit's Final Smash, in which he orders a horde of Centurions to attack his foes. The Centurions fly around the stage and ram into all foes in sight, falling to the ground upon attacking successfully.

Kid Icarus: Uprising

In Chapter 17, Palutena calls upon Centurion Strongarms to aid Pit by carrying him on a platform into the Aurum Brain Fortress.

During Chapters 18 and 20, Palutena's Army becomes antagonistic in nature after Palutena falls under the control of the Chaos Kin. Palutena binds Pit's soul to a ring, and Pit regains consciousness three years later, unable to remember what had happened to him. His body, however, remains loyal to the possessed Palutena, and as a result, he and the Centurions attack the very humans they swore to protect.

Centurions also appear throughout the game in the form of the Centurion Assist, an item which summons a replica of a Centurion to aid Pit in battle.
