Arms

Pit equipped with the Crusher Arm.

The Arm (豪腕 Gōwan, "Strong Arm") is a type of weapon introduced in Kid Icarus: Uprising. Typically appearing as a large gauntlet that extends over the user's forearm, arms excel at dash and melee attacks.


Attributes

Possessing great melee capabilities, arms are best suited for close range combat. They are also generally well-balanced, having an average damage output for ranged combat as well. To make up for these advantages, they have the shortest range of any weapon type.[1]

Crusher Arm Arms have the smallest reach of any weapon type, putting wielders at a disadvantage in long-range combat. Yet they also have incredible dash and melee attacks. The Crusher Arm is the standard model of this type of weapon. Crusherarm
Compact Arm An arm designed to be both small and light, it gives the highest movement speed of any arm, though this comes at the cost of lower melee power. Handling more like other weapons, the Compact Arm is great at midrange. Compactarm
Electroshock Arm An arm that fires bursts of electricity. Its charged shots expand as they travel, dealing a quick round of damage and inflicting paralysis. And its melee strikes send the foe flying backward, so get in there quick with your combos! Electroshock Arm
Volcano Arm The Volcano Arm uses geothermal energy for ranged and melee attacks that can set foes ablaze. Though limited in distance and long on charge time, it's a good pick for close-quarters combat. Volcano Arm
Drill Arm Designed to look like an excavation tool, the Drill Arm plows through enemies with its charged shot, which does ongoing damage. The powerful attack has great homing ability. Drillarm
Bomber Arm The rapid burning fists this weapon fires swerve sharply toward the foe. Though its continuous fire is weak, its charged shots are not, and it charges more quickly than any other arm. However, its range is among the shortest of any weapon. Bomberarm
Bowl Arm This weapon was designed to look like a decorative bowl and curiously fires off bowls and toys. While it seems like the Bowl Arm would be a fragile sort of weapon, it actually has potent charged shots. Bowlarm
End-All Arm The End-All Arm is the be-all arm for malicious decimation. Though it takes a long time to charge, its continuous fire is deadly, particularly when fired during a side dash. However, it does slow the user's movement somewhat. End-All Arm
Taurus Arm The Zodiac weapon bearing the sign of Taurus. The two horns deal the most melee damage of any arm. While its ranged attacks are big and powerful, they have weak homing ability and limited range. Taurusarm
Upperdash Arm The Upperdash Arm is outfitted with a disc-shaped device that fires ring shots. Its backward-dash charged shot can lift foes into the air. While its regular melee attacks are weak, its melee dash attack deals massive damage. Upperdash Arm
Kraken Arm Fashioned after the Galactic Sea's greatest monster, this weapon fires slow shots that feature large, hooking homing trajectories. It also features a strong melee attack and midrange performance. Kraken Arm
Phoenix Arm Modeled after the Phoenix, this arm features a unique continuous fire that travels twice as far as its charged shots. The charged shots set foes ablaze, while its continuous-fire attack launches blade feathers. Phoenix Arm
