Welcome to the competitive amiibo training community’s official Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Figure Player tier list! It was first published for Super Smash Bros. 4 in 2015, and it’s been receiving updates on a regular basis since then. All official update slates and discussions take place on the Exion Discord server – the home of the amiibo training community – so we recommend joining to stay up-to-date. If you were looking for a different amiibo tier list, we have three more: one for Super Smash Bros. 4, one for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Raid Bosses, and one for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Spirits.
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the standard tournament ruleset often bans Spirits (which means this tier list covers non-Spirited Figure Players). As a member of the SS tier, Incineroar is the strongest fighter in the game and is officially banned from all major tournaments — more information on that here. With that aside, here’s the full amiibo tier list:
Tier List Details & Explanation
New or casual trainers may 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 isn’t true. Each character has a different moveset and AI, and some of these are inherently stronger or weaker than others. Certain fighters – specifically ones in low tiers – are also plagued with AI flaws that may get them KO’d in competitive matches (for example, Bayonetta often fails to properly utilize her recovery).
