Chapter 6: Dark Pit (6章 黒いピット 6-Shō Kuroi Pitto, "Chapter 6: Black Pit") is the sixth chapter in the storyline of Kid Icarus: Uprising.
Having located Dark Pit, Palutena sends Pit into sunset skies, though the angel is promptly attacked by his doppelgänger the moment he's deployed. After a brief scuffle, Dark Pit flies away with Pit in pursuit, and the two begin arguing over which is the real Pit and which is the copy.
Medusa steps into their conversation and attempts to recruit the dark angel—however, Dark Pit sharply declines her offer. Medusa seems somewhat puzzled by this, as the Mirror of Truth forces its duplicates to be allied with the Underworld Army. Palutena proposes that the mirror may have cracked before the duplication process was complete, making Dark Pit a flawed clone without an affiliation. This initially gives Pit the impression that he won't have to fight his doppelgänger, but due to Dark Pit's destructive nature, Palutena still stands by her assigned mission.
Once Pit lands, Palutena informs him that "Pittoo" currently resides somewhere within the ruins. However, the use of the name "Pittoo" only confuses the angel, prompting her to explain that she has given Dark Pit the nickname based on the words "Pit" and "two," showcasing his existence as a duplicate. Pit then reiterates their mission—to find and defeat Dark Pit before he escapes—though the two are lost on his specific location. Per Palutena's suggestion, they use nearby Underworld troops to lead the way, as they seek out the dark angel as well.
Dark Pit's two mini-boss battles are randomized between four unique locations.
In the open area with Cherubot, Dark Pit can be found wielding the Violet Palm. Underworld forces also reside here, though the area can easily be cleared if Pit detonates the nearby square-shaped bombs.
At the mountain, Dark Pit will snipe Pit from the top using his Dark Pit Staff. Pit must proceed with caution, as Underworld troops reside here as well—though the task will become significantly easier should the player use a long-range weapon to counter his attacks.
Altar on the Hill
Dark Pit can be found alongside Underworld troops at the altar, wielding the EZ Cannon. Here, he will use the walls of the enclosed area to his advantage, as the cannon's shots will bounce off of these surfaces.
Inside the underground cavern, Dark Pit can be found equipped with the Ogre Club. Without the interference of Underworld troops, Dark Pit will take advantage of the surrounding pillars to fire wall-piercing charged shots at Pit.
The Gemini Chamber can only be accessed if Dark Pit is fought in the underground cavern. Upon his defeat here, a hidden corridor will appear to the left of the Treasure Box, allowing Pit to obtain the Gemini Orbitars.
Pit encounters Dark Pit on the floating platforms, and the two angels exchange the same battle quote before initiating the boss fight. During this battle, Dark Pit pokes fun at Pit's blind loyalty to Palutena, and adamantly establishes his own refusal to take orders.
Given unlimited flight through Pandora's powers, Dark Pit typically flies over the area during battle. He now wields the Silver Bow, allowing him to fire Special Attacks that rain arrows onto the battlefield before him. In addition, he may charge at Pit, or land on the platform to attack him directly.
Once Dark Pit has been defeated, he claims to have gone easy on Pit before retreating. Pit attempts to pursue him, but Palutena extracts the angel in order to refocus their efforts on the Underworld Army.
