Lightweight is one of Palutena's Down Special Moves. Palutena's weight will drastically decrease for an amount of time, briefly making her very light and fast. However, she will be launched farther if hit.
- Increased speed
- Increased jump height
- Heavier after the effects end
- Has a cooldown time
- Decreased horizontal air movement after the effects end
- Decreased speed after effects end
- Easier to launch
Similar to the Monado Arts Speed and Jump, Palutena's Lightweight increases her speed and jump height. This allows her to quickly approach an enemy and quickly execute combos on opponents both on the ground and in the air. During this time Palutena's weight is also decreased, making her easier to launch and therefore easier to kill. After the effects end, the move has a cooldown time before it can be used again. During this cooldown time, Palutena's weight is increased, making her more difficult to launch. She also has decreased horizontal air movement, which hinders her recovery, and decreased speed, which hinders her approach and ground coverage. After the cooldown ends, she returns back to her normal stats and a few sparkles of light appear around her, indicating she is able to use Lightweight again.
Lightweight is a power in Kid Icarus: Uprising. Like in the original game, Lightweight in Smash 4 will allow the user to move faster and jump higher; however, unlike Uprising, when used in Smash 4 the move will cause Palutena to be launched farther, whereas Uprising had the user taking more damage from enemy attacks.
