    I've been considering signing up as Pit from Kid Icarus, specifically Pit after the events of Uprising. However, I have a few questions:

    1. Would Kid Icarus be considered an acceptable fandom? Uprising in particular is a fairly comedic game, with a few characters seemingly being able to pull abilities out of nowhere, but it's also not ridiculously wacky. Also, Pit isn't one of the aforementioned characters.

    2. If the former question is positive, my second question involves Pit's abilities. A huge part of Uprising's gameplay revolves around all the various weapons Pit can equip. There's a lot of them. Furthermore, there's a lot of variation as to what the individual weapons can do for Pit. There's also no canon answer as to what Pit uses over the course of Uprising. I should note that this isn't the same as a customizable protagonist. Pit himself has a defined appearance and personality; it's just that his power set can be really variable depending on player preference.

    I was leaning towards simply giving him a "default," or what passes for "default" in Uprising," weapon of each of the nine types without any attributes (which are randomized), but just to be sure what would be the best way of handling this?

    Hey there @D.L. Yomegami, sorry for taking so long to get to this!

    After looking into this game, it seems like a pretty solid fandom to app from. As for Pit's weapons, it would probably make sense to stick to whatever he starts the game out with, as the default weapons are likely his canon weapons, or to stick to whatever weapons he has on him from the point in time you decide to app him from. Because I imagine he wouldn't be pulled into Pandora with all nine weapons on his person! But really, you could probably just go about apping his weapons in whatever way seems more reasonable/logical to you, and our trusty App Team will let you know what works and what doesn't.

    If you have any other questions or concerns, don't hesitate to let us know!
