TV Tropes.org's Kid Icarus entry  
For those unfamiliar, TV Tropes.org is a fascinating timesuck website that explores the many tropes and writing devices in any given series. More importantly, it delves into the applications, inversions, subversion and aversions of said tropes and writing devices. At long last, there is an entry for Kid Icarus and its game troika. It is a sizable reading, which, hopefully, will expand in the future. Click the link and read on.

On a closing note, I'll copy/paste their Red Shirt Army heading, vis-a-vis, the Centurians:

Turned into stone by Medusa, you spend half your time in the dungeons saving them with Hammers(?!) only to have them drop like flies when they attempt to fight the bosses, who aren't that tough anyway. Lampshaded in Brawl.
