Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – amiibo Tier List (September 2021)

First made available in 2015, Exion’s Super Smash Bros. amiibo tier lists were among the first on the internet — and now they’re the longest-running! Our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tier list has been updated for September 2021, and was developed by combining tournament results, matchup data, and character and AI strength. All official tier list update discussions take place on the Exion Discord server, so we recommend joining to stay up-to-date! If for some reason you were looking for the Super Smash Bros. 4 tier list, you can find that here instead.

Tier List

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the standard tournament ruleset does not allow Spirits (which means this tier list covers non-Spirited Figure Players). As members of the S tier, Incineroar and Terry are considered the strongest fighters in the game. Bowser was formerly banned from tournaments but is now allowed back due to the discovery of new counterplay. Here’s the full tier list:

New trainers often try to deny the existence of tiers in competitive amiibo training, arguing that each FP is on par with the rest. However, tournament results have proven that this simply is not true; the presence of character-specific moves and character-specific AI flaws means that some fighters will always be noticeably better or worse than others. Please note that Exion does not maintain a Spirits tier list because there would be too few changes compared to the current one (including Jigglypuff, Falco, and Ganondorf rising — not too much else).

If you found this page from an internet search, welcome! We’ve been creating amiibo training content for over five years, and we’ve got guides available for every character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. We also host amiibo tournaments on our Discord server, and you’re welcome to join in on the fun if you like! We’d also appreciate it if you helped support the site via Patreon or our donation box. In the meantime, we’ll be sure to send out updates when our tier list is eventually further revised!

    1. Okay so most competitive-trained amiibo are raised to stay on the ground and focus primarily on smash attacks. This means that at any given moment they will usually be standing on the ground, which means they will try to shield any projectiles coming their way. Terry can spam Power Wave from a distance, and then the opponent will either take damage or shield. He can then run forward, use one of his combos and deal tons of damage. Then he’s even got a comeback mechanic with Buster Wolf and Power Geyser. Overall he deals tons of damage, has no shortage of kill moves, and matches well against almost everyone in the cast.

      1. After getting my own Terry amiibo,I can confirm that Terry is indeed S-Tier. I’ve been true combo’d into Buster Wolf so often and my other amiibos suffered the same fate.

    1. There currently is on the Raid Boss wiki entry, but these are harder to make than competitive. Since you can’t have two Raid Bosses fight each other (since then it’s just a competitive amiibo tier list), and you can’t really properly track Raid Boss wins against humans, it’d be difficult to make a really credible list. So if we do update it, there would be a notice that it’s mostly opinion-based.

    1. Not a Spirits one unfortunately. It would be too similar to the current list to warrant updating on a regular basis. The only differences would be that Jigglypuff, Falco, and maybe Ganondorf would be higher on the list!

    1. Up throw to up air works good! Otherwise just use forward or back throw to toss it to the nearest stage edge and you should be good to go.

    1. Up throw to PK Thunder works great at low to mid percentages. At high percentages you should use back throw! The AI will occasionally use forward throw and down throw on its own but I’d recommend just using up throw > up B and back throw to kill.
