At first, Pseudo-Palutena's appearance is the same as Palutena. However, it turns out that her true face is rather vile and disgusting, resembling that of a comical zombie. Her skin tone is a slight purple, with her face being the most dramatic change in her appearance. One of her eyes is mostly closed, while the other is creepily wide open. She also has a long tongue and a backwards "P" on her forehead. Pseudo-Palutena is extremely brutal and vicious and possesses a great blood lust; though she only appears for a short time, she's completely focused on destroying and killing Pit.
Powers and Abilities
However, once her mask of beauty is destroyed, she becomes even more aggressive. When she's in her true form, she upgrades her arsenal of Palutena's magic with a barrage of pink energy shots; she also uses a melee attack, which involves her smashing her own face into the ground below her, hitting Pit in the process.
Pit reluctantly attacks Palutena, who sounds much more violent then normal. After some hits, she reveals her true face as "Pseudo-Palutena" and continues the fight. The battle becomes more difficult as her array of attacks increases.
After the battle, Palutena "wakes up" and believes she had fallen asleep during Pit's trial. During the Great Sacred Treasure battle, it is revealed that Dyntos somehow had put Palutena to sleep temporarily and created Pseudo-Palutena to make it seem like Pit was fighting the actual goddess herself.
A twisted version of Palutena created by Dyntos as a joke. During the appearance of Pseudo-Palutena, Dyntos put the real goddess to sleep miles away. This amazing feat is evidence that Dyntos's power exceeds even that of Hades.
