Tier lists have circulated the internet for as long as competitive amiibo training has existed, and Exion has finally released the latest versions of its official lists for both Super Smash Bros. 4 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. These tier lists are developed by combining tournament results, matchup data, and character and AI strength.
In Super Smash Bros. 4
In the Super Smash Bros. 4 metagame, equipment was both allowed and encouraged; as a result, it was almost always included in the standard ruleset. Little Mac and Cloud were once entirely banned from competitive play, but were later permitted under a strict set of equipment restrictions. The tier list accounts for both of these restrictions: Little Mac and Cloud are still considered top-tier, but are not the best characters in the game. This list was last updated on June 25, 2019.
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the standard tournament ruleset requires that Figure Players be left vanilla (no Spirits). Please note that – as members of the S tier – Bowser and Incineroar are generally banned from competitive play. King K. Rool is noticeably stronger than characters in the A+ tier, but is not usually banned from tournaments. An alternative tier list covering Raid Bosses (amiibo versus human players) can be found on its respective wiki page. This list was last updated on December 8, 2020.
The tier list council discusses updates in the Exion Discord server, so if you haven’t done so yet, be sure to drop by so you can get all the latest information on our amiibo training content (and tier list updates). Please refer to our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate training guides for strategies on making your Figure Player top-tier!
