"A beautiful and powerful electricity-based warrior in the Forces of Nature. While victorious in her battle with Thanatos, the wounds Phosphora receives make her weak in the fight with Pit that follows."
In the English version of the game, Phosphora's name is a reference to the Greek god Phosphorus, whose name means light-bearer. Her Japanese name, Eleka, may be a reference to the Greek mythological figure Electra. Both names are tied to Greek words relating to radiance or light.
The Phosphora Bow weapon is infused from the scarf worn around Phosphora's neck.
According to her trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, she isn't a great singer.
