No, that is not a different coloration of Pit. That is Dark Pit. Introduced in Kid Icarus: Uprising, Dark Pit was introduced in the fifth chapter of that game. The fifth chapter was called Pandora’s Labyrinth of Deceit, and it is here that Pit tries to destroy the Mirror of Truth. He does, but creates Dark Pit. Together, they defeat Pandora. I will be analyzing his first set of special moves.
His neutral special is Silver Bow. This move is similar to Pit’s neutral special, but it deals more damage and is faster. However, Pit’s arrows can curve more and last longer.
His side special is Electroshock Arm. This move is similar to Pit’s side special, but it sends foes flying at a lower angle than Pit’s does and it deals electric damage (so don’t try to use it against Yellow Pikmin, since it won’t hurt them). It deals about 12% damage on the ground and between 9% and 10% damage in the air.
His up special is the Power of Flight. Pretty much the exact same as Pit’s up special.
His down special is the Guardian Orbitars. Also pretty much the exact same as Pit’s down special.
