A few macros I cobbled together. I’m getting a bit of a mania :O
And a Captain N one for good measure
People sometime ask, why can Kid Icarus fly in Captain N when he can’t in the game, and why is he called Kid Icarus and not Pit?
Remember Pit killed Medusa at the end of Kid Icarus, but in Captain N she is still alive and Kid turns her to stone?
So Captain N is obviously set before anything in the game happens. Even before he became Captain of Palutena’s Army. The reason he is only ever called by his nickname of Kid Icarus in Captain N is because, of course, Nintendo said that they can’t name-check his game if he wasn’t.
Okay, so he looks a bit different now but this is Videoland, right?
After the N-Team save Videoland from Mother Brain, Kid is sent to train in Pally’s Army and rises to the level of Captain (and loses the speech defecticus – awww).
Of course he is still a kid, because angels age much much slower than humans, being immortal and all that. Then he gets kidnapped by Medusa, who clips his wings (and perhaps even breaks a few bones) to stop his escaping and that’s why he can’t fly in Kid Icarus, and that’s why he can fly in Brawl, because of course, his primaries have grown back. In Of Myths and Monsters (the sequel to Angel Land Story), Pit’s wings have some functionality, which just goes to back up my theory, that his flight feathers were still growing back and his wings still healing at that time.
You see, it’s so simple.
When you think about it.
Okay, I totally made this up, but it’s the only explanation that makes sense to me. I mean, he lives in Skyworld, he’d need to be able to fly. Stands to reason, doesn’t it? Why have wings if you can’t fly? I’m going with this theory for my Skyworld Story anyway. I like my stories to make sense.
(That’s one of the sacred words for Angel Land Story, I can’t remember what it does though. Last level, I think??)
I was watching Videolympics the other day. They are SO mean to Kid Icarus in that. Dr Wiley called him Kid Idiot and Simon Belmont called him Shrimpicus, so Kid called Simon Dopius Maximus, which is an exceptionordinarily cool insult.
(Don’t tell me I’m sad, I already know. My best friend hasn’t come to see me for a while, so I’ve no one to talk to 😥 )
This is actually from Invasion of the Paper Pedlars. That’s the episode I remember watching as a kid and the one that helped me track down Captain N in the first place. Mother Brain is my master!!!! Kid has been hypnotised in this one. He’s going for Kevinicus.
Kid Icarus, you are so exceptionordinarily cute!!! He gets bashed around so much in this episode. Kid Liquorice!
Aww! Yook at him the lil duckie! He’s off to battle Medusa here, but first he must stop himself and Simonius looking at her.
My favourite and best scenes from Captain N – The Game Master
Episode 9 – Nightmare on Mother Brain’s Street
This has some of the best scenes I don’t know, maybe you have to actually watch them for real to find them funny.
Mother Brain: Metroid mirror on the wall
Am I the cutest of them all?
Mirror: Princess Lana’s the cutest chick,
You’re so ugly you make me sick!
Mother Brain: What do you know, twerp! I will be the most beautiful woman in Videoland! And you, Eggplant Wizard, are going to help me do it!
Eggplant Wizard: Wh – who, me?
Mother Brain: Yes, you! You can start by making me an apple!
Eggplant Wizard:Whatever you say, Mother Bwain!
Magic words with which I grapple, make this brain a big juicy apple!
Mother Brain: You idiot! I don’t want to be an apple! I want to have an apple!
Mother Brain’s voice is the best. She’s voiced by Levi Stubbs.
Eggplant Wizard: C-c-cool off, Mother Brain, or you’ll become a baked apple!

Kid Icarus: Angel Land Story
This was a pretty good game. Never got all that far, I kept getting stuck on level 1-2. Kid Icarus is really called Pit.
I can’t do it. I just can’t do it 😥 This game is too hard.
