Palutena's Arrow, known as Palutena Bow in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, is Pit's neutral special move in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. Pit fires an arrow from the Palutena Bow (known in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as both the Sacred Bow of Palutena and Palutena's Bow) that can be controlled with the analog stick. The move can also be charged by holding down the special move button before firing, and can be aimed in either direction or directly up as it charges.
In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, this move has two custom variants. The first is Piercing Bow, which is more powerful but takes longer to charge, travels more slowly, and cannot be guided. The second is Guiding Bow, which gives greater control over the arrow but makes it less powerful.
