After Blank returned from an extended leave of absence, he entered Ario into several amiibo tournaments. Ario’s first championship title was Peng Tournament 4, in which he defeated a Marth, a Lucina, and an Inkling. He went on to win Amiibo Strike 2, and from that point on became known as Ultimate’s strongest Mario amiibo.
Blank’s Mario amiibo figure is a factory defect and is missing the M on its cap. This is reflected in its nickname, which is also missing the M.
