amiibo Wiki: Byleth

Byleth’s amiibo figure was first released on March 26, 2021, and is compatible with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. At present, Byleth has not gathered enough tournament results for a definitive position on our tier list. If you would like to read our full Byleth amiibo training guide, you may do so via this link.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Byleth’s amiibo file was accessed early in December 2020, which means trainers had over three months to fully test the character prior to its official release date in March 2021. In terms of strengths, perhaps Byleth’s most notable is their range. Their tilts, smash attacks, and special moves all have respectable reach; in addition to its range, Areadbhar is also quite strong and is especially effective against AI opponents, who often cannot block or dodge its hitbox in time. Its hitbox is also larger than Incineroar’s Alolan Whip; thus, it is estimated that Byleth may potentially be one of Incineroar’s few shaky matchups.

Though much of Byleth’s moveset is rather slow, its lack of speed is not particularly troubling in the context of amiibo training. Areadbhar’s range is so high that its speed doesn’t matter, which allows Byleth to pile on loads of damage while remaining fairly safe. More of Byleth’s specific weaknesses will undoubtedly be uncovered as they participate in more tournaments; for now, their sole weakness is their recovery. Sword of the Creator provides good vertical distance, but if Byleth is launched too far away from the stage, its horizontal distance is rather lacking and can leave them vulnerable or unable to recover at all.

Given the fact that Byleth is a recent addition to competitive amiibo tournaments, they do not have a defined position in the metagame at the moment. When notable tourneys have concluded, this page will be updated with additional information on Byleth’s metagame standings. Until then, feel free to read Byleth’s full training guide. The information it contains was researched by Exion via early-access files prior to the figurine’s official launch date.
