The Phoenix Arm is an Arm in Kid Icarus: Uprising. It is shaped like the head area of the Phoenix. A unique trait, this Arm's continuous fire travels twice as far as its charged shots, but its charged shots can burn opponents. Its continuous fire shots also gain power as they travel, which is a rare trait among Arms. It possesses the same melee power as the Compact Arm, but the Phoenix Arm is built for mid-range battle. This weapon is unlocked after defeating the Phoenix in Chapter 10.
