The Igniot is a new enemy introduced in Kid Icarus: Uprising. This monster seemingly functions as two unique parts that work together when attacking. They first appear in Chapter 9: Medusa's Final Battle.
The Igniot is a very strange enemy that has an Egyptian look to it. Unlike most Underworld foes, this monster appears to actually be made up of two separate creatures that work together. One part of it is a hand with three fingers that ends in a base with three more fingers. The second part looks like a metallic amulet with a single large eye and two snake statues, which is attached to a chain that is held by the aforementioned hand creature. This eyeball is what the Igniot as a whole uses to attack with, as it is capable of firing a dangerous laser that can reach quite far and can petrify Pit on contact. However, it's not a mobile creature, so the Igniot will not be able to pursue Pit if he falls out of its view.
A fearsome, rotating cannon that fires off petrifying beams of light. Its dangling eyeball keeps a constant vigil, mercilessly blasting any opposing forces that cross its path. Luckily, Palutena's protection ensures Pit is only briefly turned to stone.
- Its name possibly comes from the words “ingot” and “igneous”, describing how the eyeball amulet part of the monster is likely carved out of gold or rock.
- Its name could also refer to how it can turn enemies into rock when its energy beam hits.
- The two snake statues on either side of the Igniot's eye resemble Shemums. It's body also seems to resemble a Handora as well.
- Igniots seem to be possibly based on Monsterous Medusa. Both have snake designs on them, a single reddish eye that is capable of firing beams, and they are both capable of turning things into stone.
