amiibo Wiki: Mii Brawler

Mii Brawler’s amiibo figure was first released on November 1, 2015, and is compatible with both Super Smash Bros. 4 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Mii Brawler is considered low-tier in Super Smash Bros. 4 and middle-high tier in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. If you would like to access its training guides, you may do so here (Smash 4) and here (Smash Ultimate).

Super Smash Bros. 4

Mii Brawler is ranked as a C-tier Figure Player in the final revision of the Smash 4 tier list. In this game, the Mii Fighters were severely underrepresented, and thus were in attendance of very few tournaments throughout the metagame’s lifespan. The Mii Brawler is the least represented Mii Fighter, and perhaps for good reason: its recovery is the least reliable of the three. The AI cannot properly use Feint Jump to recover, and all three of its custom up specials grant poor horizontal or vertical distance. It is also a rather complicated FP to set up; once a Mii is assigned to it, it cannot be changed without deleting the game data (and, by extension, any training it has received). Furthermore, Mii Brawler FPs can be small, medium, or large in this game. Of these, large is considered most viable, as its attack power is enhanced compared to the other two sizes.

Mii Brawler’s few strengths include a solid set of tilts and a powerful set of smash attacks (assuming the Mii in question is the large size). It is important to note that the Mii Brawler’s best custom moves in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate include Flashing Mach Punch and Suplex; unfortunately, neither of these custom moves exist in this game, and in their place are Ultimate Uppercut and Headache Maker — which are considered much worse.

All in all, Mii Brawler is lacking in unique strengths to make it stand out from the crowd. It is almost completely outclassed by every fighter ranked above it on the tier list, and thus never received any significant tournament results (other than quick eliminations).

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Mii Brawler has been drastically buffed for its appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and is now one of the better characters among the cast. It benefits greatly from the new custom moves Flashing Mach Punch and Suplex; these moves strike multiple times and hit through shields, respectively, making them excellent neutral tools. It boasts a surprisingly decent matchup spread, with slightly positive matchups against Mii Swordfighter, Dr. Mario, and Pokémon Trainer.

However, the Mii Brawler’s poor recovery is still a significant issue. Once again, all three of its custom up specials grant it poor distance, and the AI misuses Feint Jump (via self-destructing with it) to the point where a different custom move is generally recommended instead. Furthermore, while Suplex is a great command grab that deals respectable damage, it is flat-out incapable of KOing an opponent at any percentage, which relegates it as a damage-racker and nothing more. It also struggles to properly contend against top-tiers such as King K. Rool and Ridley.

Though Mii Brawler was short on representation at the start of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, its metagame standings have much improved and the character has been well-optimized. It has accumulated several tournament wins, and is finally considered a viable character in competitive play — particularly in roster-restricted tournaments that do not allow top-tiers such as the aforementioned King K. Rool and Ridley. If you would like to learn how to train a Mii Brawler amiibo in this game, please refer to our training guide.
