 The Tale of Kid Icarus

 Let us go back to the distant past to an age when the Gods and Man lived
 together in harmony. There was once a kingdom called "Angel Land."  This
 kingdom was ruled by two beautiful goddesses, Palutena who administered
 light and Medusa who ruled darkness.  Palutena lived in the Palace in the
 Sky and administered light so that man

------------------------------------------------------------
 page 4

 could live in happiness.  And bathed in this light man grew food and lived
 in peace.  However, Medusa the goddess of darkness was different.  Medusa
 hated mankind.  She took great pleasure in drying up the crops that man took
 great pains to grow and in turning people into stone statues.  In her anger
 Palutena changed Medusa into an ugly monster and banished her to the deep,
 dark Underworld.  For being changed into this ugly monster and forced to
 live in the

------------------------------------------------------------
 page 5

 Underworld, Medusa promised to take over the Palace in the Sky where
 Palutena lived.  So great was Medusa's anger that she joined forces with the
 monsters and evil spirits of the Underworld and Medusa's army soon began to
 surpass Palutena's amry in strength.  Soon a war between Palutena and Medusa
 began.  Medusa led a surprise attack on Palutena's army which could barely
 fend off the attack.  Palutena's army suffered major losses

------------------------------------------------------------
 page 6

 and was heavily defeated in the final battle.  What's more, Medusa's army
 took the Three Sacred Treasures - the Mirror Shield, the Arrow of Light, and
 the Wings of Pegasus - away from them.  Almost all of the warriors in
 Palutena's army were turned into stone statues and Palutena herself was
 imprisoned deep in the Palace in the Sky.  The peaceful realm of Angel Land
 came to be inhabited by foul and terrible monsters and was turned into a
 land of darkness ruled by

------------------------------------------------------------
 page 7

 the wicked Medusa.  Locked in the depths of the Palace in the Sky, Palutena's
 strength was drained to its last.  As a last resort, she sought the help of
 the angel youth Pit who was being held prisoner locked in a deep dungeon in
 the Underworld.  Pit was a valiant warrior who used to be in charge of
 Palutena's personal bodyguards.  Armed with a boy and arrow brought to him
 through Palutena's magical strength, Pit attempted an escape

------------------------------------------------------------
 page 8

 from the Underworld.  The guard at this time was low in number as Medusa's
 army had advanced to the Palace in the Sky.  Pit succeeded in his escape and
 set out on his long adventure to rescue Palutena.  Yet to defeat Medusa he
 had to get the Three Sacred Treasures.  Will Pit be able to restore
 Palutena's light and return it to Angel Land?  Only you can answer that
 question.

 glaciers.

 Stage 2 Overworld

 Items That Will Make Pit a More Powerful Angel

 Building up Pit's strength is the key to advancement.

  You can find them in the seven chambers."

------------------------------------------------------------
 page 22

 training.  Good luck!

 ■ Hot Spring Chamber
 A dip in the hot spring will revive Pit's strength.

 Use the hospital!  Watch out for the Eggplant Wizards' spells.  They'll turn
 you into an eggplant (a fate worse than death).  Go to a hospital to find a
 cure.

------------------------------------------------------------
 page 24

   times.

   ■ Sacred Bow
   Pit's arrows will travel further and faster.

   ■ Protective Crystal
   Two crystals will revolve around Pit's body and protect him from the
   enemy's attacks.

------------------------------------------------------------
 page 25

 page 26

------------------------------------------------------------
 page 27

   hearts at the store and allow Pit to get his hands on treasure at the
   treasure chamber.

   ■ Mallet
   Pit needs a mallet to rescue his friend Centurian at the fortress.  Each
   mallet has the power of five arrows.  One swing of the mallet and the
   number of mallets in stock decreases by one.

   Returns Pit's strength lost in battle with the enemy.  He can find it in
   the stores or the treasure chambers.

   ■ Water of Life (Chalice)
   When he has got it, Pit gets one measure of strength back.

   ■ Water of Life (Bottle)
   When Pit has this, his strength recovers by one meter section when his
   strength has gone down to 0.  He can only carry one bottle unless he has a
   water barrel.

   ■ Water Barrel
   Pit can carry up to 8 water of life bottles if he has this barrel.

------------------------------------------------------------
 page 30

 ■ Items that give Pit extra fighting power

   fighting power increases by the number of arrows he has been given.

   ■ Arrow
        Bronze arrow -> Silver arrow -> Gold arrow -> Sacred arrow
     Angel's arrows are given to Pit by the friendly god depending on his
     strength.  With these arrows Pit's color will change and his fighting
     power increases.  The damage Pit can inflict on the enemy in a single
     attack increases.  His power increases a maximum of 4 levels.

 Oh, no!  Its the God of Poverty

 Watch out!  This god has a grudge.  All the items Pit has uncovered in the
 treasure chambers disappear when Pit comes across the God of Poverty.  Which
 pitcher is it in?

------------------------------------------------------------
 page 31

 Introducing the Inhabitants in Angel Land

 Ganewmede

   gives out really poisonous spores from its body and robs its enemies of
   lives.

------------------------------------------------------------
 page 34

 Pluton
   A robbing ogre.  Watch him!  He's crafty.  Touch him and he steals one of
   your possessions.  Pit's arrows don't work against him.  He's so stringy.
   He sells what he's stolen to the black marketeer.

 Minos
   A procupine monster.  It fills its body up with air like a balloon and
   flies around.  Its big eyes can see invaders far off.

   living creature in its enormous mouth.  A real pig.

   Pit's way.  It also gets a hold of things and cuts through them with its
   razor sharp teeth.

------------------------------------------------------------
 page 35

 Rockman
   A rock life form.  It falls suddenly out of the blue onto Pit's head.  Its
   body is very hard so Pit will receive a lot of damage if it drops on him.

   away by Medusa.  It has no fighting power of its own though EelEyes leaps
   out of its body.

 Octos

   Violent and very irritable, it appears suddenly beneath Pit.

------------------------------------------------------------
 page 37

 Komayto
   A mysterious floating creature.  Nobody knows where it came from.  One
   theory has it that it came from a planet other than the Earth.  It's a
   nasty jellyfish monster.
   {This creature looks EXACTLY like a Metroid.  It's no coincidence though}
   {because Kid Icarus and Metroid were released on the same date and were }
   {both developed at the same time using the "new" password system.       }

 Pluton Fly
   A flying robber.  A real baddy who goes around trying to steal Pit's
   weapons.  Pit's arrows are useless against it.

   attacking.

   Watch out!  He has terrible fighting power and a habit of lurking around
   inside the fortress.

 page 38

 Keepah
   A creature evolved from the Kobil.  Only one of its type flies around and
   attacks Pit.  It hasn't got that much fighting power.

 "Questions and Answers"

 Q. What should I do to get extra strength (to increase my maximum
    ENDURANCE)?
 A. You get stronget at each checkpoint you pass through if your score
    exceeds a certain level.  In other words, you must get a high score.

 Q. Oh, heavenly one!  When will you give me the arrows for extra fighting
    power?
 A. Let me tell you.  How many of the enemy have you killed?  How many
    chambers have you entered?  Have you got a lot of items?  And how little
    damage has the enemy inflicted on you?  These all decide the answer to
    your question.

 Q. Why can't I use my weapons?
 A. Sometimes you can't use them because you havn't got enough strength.

 Q. How can I get to Medusa's chamber?
 A. Well, Pit, you must fight fiercely and win many battles.

 Q. My weapons were stolen by Pluton and Pluton fly.  What can I do to get
    them back?
 A. Hmmm.  You might try bargaining with the black marketeers.

 Q. Can I look forward to anything special once I've rescued Palutena?
 A. First you have to rescue her, but once you have, many different endings
    await you depending on how skillful you have been.
