The Kid Icarus 3D Anime videos are three animated shorts released on the Nintendo 3DS in 2012, containing unique storylines separate from any of the Kid Icarus games. Created for Kid Icarus: Uprising, they came out before the game's release and were available via Nintendo Video.
- Thanatos Rising: This animated short features Pit battling against the God of Death, Thanatos. Unlike the other animated shorts, this one was done entirely in CGI.
- Medusa's Revenge: This animated short showcases the rise of Medusa. It takes place before the events of the original Kid Icarus, up to the beginning of Kid Icarus: Uprising.
- Palutena's Revolting Dinner: This animated short features Palutena attempting to cook dinner for herself and Pit. However, she experiences unexpected difficulties along the way.
