“Pit (ピット Pitto) is the protagonist of the Kid Icarus series, first appearing in Kid Icarus for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1987 (1986 on the Famicom), followed by an appearance in Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters for the Game Boy in 1991.”
“In earlier games, Pit appeared as a young, cherubic angel wearing a simple white chiton with a pair of sandals, and metal cuffs. He has short brown hair, and small white wings that are incapable of flight. In Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters and beyond, he dons a gold laurel crown.”
“Since his reappearance in Brawl, he was given a major redesign by Masahiro Sakurai. Pit now looks to be around 13 years old, and has blue eyes and many tufts in his hair.”
“Like most Nintendo protagonists, Pit is typically goodhearted, selfless, and heroic. He is generally very upbeat no matter what the situation (although he can be genuinely serious when needed), which certain characters, including both foe and ally, can find it a nuisance. Pit frequently banters, cracks jokes, makes outrageous puns, and constantly breaks the fourth wall.”
“Pit also has a large appetite and will eat almost anything regardless of where it comes from. He is shown to be a devout lover of hot springs. Pit strongly follows the ‘angel’s code of conduct’ to the point he even refuses to remove his clothes when entering water.”
“Due to his young age, Pit is gullible and naive. He is unfortunately not very bright either. Pit is illiterate and has trouble understanding complex vocabulary. He can be slightly narcissistic at times, believing he is an attractive-looking person.”
