Grants access to locked doors


Single use

Keys are items that debuted in Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters. Appearing in Solo Mode in Kid Icarus: Uprising, keys grant the user access to locked doors.


Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters

Each Key allows Pit to open one locked door.

— Its Game Manual Description

Allowing Pit to re-enter a room he left, keys can be purchased for 300 Hearts, or 400 Hearts if purchased through the Black Marketeer.

Palutena's Key

Palutena's Key is hidden near the end of each area. All the doors in the area will open when Pit touches Palutena's Key. NOTE: Palutena's Key only appears if Pit has entered each room in the area.

— Its Game Manual Description

Palutena's Key only appears if all rooms in a single stage have been visited and are now closed. It will be hidden in a block near the end of each stage, which must be smashed open with a hammer. Once obtained, the key re-opens all locked doors within the stage.

Kid Icarus: Uprising

In Chapter 3, a key is needed to enter the courtyard where the Hewdraw Head is located.

In Chapter 20, a Palutena-themed key is needed to proceed through Palutena's Temple.
