The Hedgehog Claws (射爪ラピッドヘッジホッグ Shasō Rapiddo Hejjihoggu, "Rapid Hedgehog Shooting Claws") are claws in Kid Icarus: Uprising.

Physical Appearance

The Hedgehog Claws are slim weapons that fit the user's hands like boxing gloves. Each is comprised of two brown and gold plates to either side of the weapon, a strap surrounding the user's hand, and a top plate resembling a piece of machinery with three needle-like claws protruding from it.


Kid Icarus: Uprising

The Hedgehog Claws are weapons the player can use in-game, which can be obtained as loot, through fusion, or by completing a challenge in Viridi's Treasure Hunt that requires the player to possess fifty thousand or more hearts.

Idol Description

Hedgehog Claws

Inspired by hedgehogs, these claws charge quickly and provide a large speed boost to users. While they lack homing ability and have a low attack power, their rapid fire shoots a ceaseless barrage of projectiles.
