amiibo Training Guides

The Amiibo Dojo first opened its doors in August 2015 and carved itself a unique niche as the only website specializing in amiibo training guides! The Amiibo Dojo was dissolved into Exion in 2019, but its efforts continue to this day: we’re back and better than ever with a new collection of guides for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate!

If you’re looking for our Super Smash Bros. 4 amiibo training guides, don’t worry: you’ll find them safe and sound in the Amiibo Dojo archive (please note: we don’t recommend using Smash 4 guides to train Figure Players in Smash Ultimate). Please refer to the general amiibo guide for more tips on training your amiibo in Ultimate. Additional information on amiibo personality types can be found here. If you’re training your first amiibo, also check out 8 things you should know before you start.

Character List

Here is a complete collection of all our training guides! Super Smash Bros. Ultimate includes over seventy characters (and counting), so we don’t have posts available on each one just yet. If the fighter you want to train isn’t on this list, feel free to join our Discord server and ask our community of experienced amiibo trainers!

There are two main formats for our amiibo character guides. Either Cloud or Leaf (Exion’s two main writers) will be listed as the author, and the format differs depending on the author. Cloud’s format includes paragraph descriptions in the training section, while Leaf’s format includes bullet-point descriptions in the training section. Subtle difference! By the way, Leaf-formatted guides are tagged with the Guest Article category. As a side note, if you’re new to the scene, check out the amiibo Wiki for even more helpful information!

Miscellaneous Guides

We’ve got some guides that don’t involve specific characters, too! These come highly recommended, as they talk about general concepts that apply to every fighter in the game. And some tell you how you can get more involved in the competitive scene, too!
