Rematch with SonicEdit

Windy HillEdit

On Windy Hill, Pit can cross under the stage, but would get spiked by the spring. He can make it back on the stage from under the right side offscreen. He can double jump from the left platform to the right and can even fly to the top of the wheel. He can triple jump to a higher platform on the wheel. The right spring bounces him close enough to the center that he can midair jump past the circle.

Palutena's GuidenceEdit

On the stage Palutena's Temple, Pit can start a dialogue with goddesses Palutena and Viridi.

Pit: "For being a hedgehog, Sonic really isn't very spiky, is he?"
Viridi: "Yeah, I've seen spikier. It's true that you're more likely to find him curled up in a cute, harmless ball."
Palutena: "Not so harmless. That round shape lets him Spin Dash with ease."
Pit: "I've changed my mind. He's entirely too spiky."
Viridi: "Spin Dashes are hard to stop, though."
Palutena: "Just keep your cool and don't lose focus. You can stop Spin Attacks using your Orbitars or Bow."
