Medusa's Revenge (メデューサの逆襲 Medyūsa no Gyakushū, "Medusa's Counterattack") is an animated short produced by Studio 4°C. It was released via Nintendo Video in March 2012 in order to promote the release of Kid Icarus: Uprising.


Told by Palutena, the story begins with the goddess explaining her imprisonment during the events of the original Kid Icarus and how Pit came to rescue her. The screen briefly transitions to a scene of Palutena informing Pit that she is in need of his help once more, granting him the Power of Flight before he takes to the skies. It then displays a flashback of Medusa firing beams at a small town, petrifying various humans in the process—however, Palutena interrupts and confronts her, causing conflict between the two.

The screen returns to the present, in which Palutena states that both the Overworld and Skyworld are in danger due to the Underworld Army's invasion. As Pit fights off Underworld troops, he flies upward to find Medusa emerging from the clouds, where the two finally come face-to-face.
