Pit (Wingless) - Pit suffers the mortal injury of losing his wings after exceeding the limits of the power of flight to rescue Dark Pit from deep within the Chaos Vortex. Almost reunited with Palutena after three years, fate keeps them apart.

Somebody posted a scan of this on the internet years ago, and I thought little further of it until now. Turns out it’s from the Japanese strategy guide book. It’s not even a proper card, really, it’s a perforated punch-out from a cardboard page in the back of the book, along with Chaos Vortex, Aurum Pyrrhon, and Lightning Chariot. I managed to find an image of the European version (don’t know if that was in normal circulation or an exclusive somewhere) and some more photos of the Japanese one.

I broke down and ordered the book, it’s only available in the secondary market now but supposedly the one I’m getting still has its cards. I’ll get a proper scan of it later. Who knows, maybe the book itself has some official artwork in it that’s missing from the American Prima release.
