In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Pit is a playable character. His character design within the game is said to be a "huge leap forward in his evolution," designed by the same character designer of Twilight Princess. Kid Icarus also appears as one of the Masterpieces available to demo. Here, the player has one minute and thirty seconds to play through the first level of the game. The game is also embodied in a stage; Angel Land itself appears in Skyworld and is featured prominently in the Subspace Emissary. As all the other fighters, Pit has his own trophy in Brawl, as does his Final Smash, Palutena's Army. Palutena and the Centurions, the warriors Pit must free from stone in the fortress levels of Kid Icarus, make an appearance as part of Pit's Final Smash, and Palutena is given her own trophy. Palutena's Bow also is given its own trophy. Several stickers from Kid Icarus appear, such as Pit, the Grim Reaper, and the Eggplant Wizard.
