Stage of the Month #89: The Choices Are Yours & Yours Alone

PALUTENA'S TEMPLE

Source: Kid Icarus series
Appears in: Smash 4 WiiU, Ultimate
Home character: Pit, Palutena (Ultimate unlock), Dark Pit (WiiU unlock)

Availability: Starter
Type: Metamorphic
Hazards: Spikes, Bridge, Moving platforms

Music:
"Boss Fight 1 (Kid Icarus Uprising)"
"In the Space-Pirate Ship"
"Lightning Chariot Base"
"Magnus's Theme"
"Dark Pit's Theme"
"Hades's Infernal Theme"
"Thunder Cloud Temple"
"Destroyed Skyworld"
"Wrath of the Reset Bomb"
"Weyard"

Trivia:
--Pit can trigger Palutena's Guidance on this stage by using his Smash Taunt.
--In KI Uprising, Pit fights a possessed Palutena in this temple, so her unlock battle may be a throwback to that.

You could start by running up the stairs to The Crypt. Grab the book from the Skeletons. Then pass into The Pit of the Pendulum. Knock over the column, & climb into The King's Storeroom. Smash the clay pots to find the key that will lead you to The Chamber of the Sacred Markers. Match the symbols on the right to the runes on the left, & pass into The Room of the Ancient Warriors. Place yourself in the correct armor, & open the door to The Shrine of the Silver Monkey. Assemble the statue, & you may be headed toward The Room of the Secret Password. Find the tablet with the correct inscription & shout it out to open the door to the Pharoah's Secret Passage. Slide down the tunnel to The Quicksand Bog, where you can smash through to The Dark Forest, but beware the Temple Guards that may inhabit the trees! Find the key in the tree, & you'll enter The Jester's Court. Press yourself against the correct wall painting, & you'll gain entry to The Tomb of the Headless Kings. Pull the vines to release their bones, & attach the missing skull to its proper king. Then race to The Pit, climb through The Ledges, race down the stairs & back to the Temple Gate. You won 2 pendants in the Temple Games. Who's going first?

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

WHY CAN THOSE FREAKING KIDS NEVER PUT TOGETHER THE SILVER MONKEY. IT'S NOT HARD. IT'S THREE PIECES. WHY DOES IT TAKE YOU SO LONG TO DO THIS.
