The Reaper and a Reapette from Kid Icarus: Uprising
|Series||Kid Icarus series|
|First game||Kid Icarus (1986)|
|Created by||Satoru Okada, Gunpei Yokoi|
The Reaper is a recurring enemy in the Kid Icarus series. It's notable for being one of the more common enemies and one of the most difficult enemies to beat. The Reaper is usually accompanied by Reapettes, which fly around attempting to kill Pit.
The Reaper's first appearance was in Kid Icarus, where he is one of the most frequent enemies in the game. The Reaper walks back and forth in a set path, occasionally looking behind him as he walks. If he spots Pit, he will begin to scream and shriek, calling down 4 Reapettes to come and kill Pit. It will also chase down Pit to the nearest possible spot. After a few seconds, the Reaper will calm down and return to it's patrol, even if the Reapettes are still on-screen. The Reaper is also known for having a huge amount of endurance than most enemies, making it more difficult to defeat.
