Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Zero Suit Samus amiibo Guide

Bayonetta, Sheik, and Zero Suit Samus all have something in common: they’re not very good FPs. In the context of our amiibo tier list, these three fighters are very close to “bottom-of-the-barrel”, and unfortunately that doesn’t look to be changing anytime soon. If you’d like to learn more about Zero Suit Samus’ metagame history before we continue, please refer to her corresponding wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Special thanks to forenmagra for contributing Zero Suit Samus’ training information!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Snake amiibo Guide

People were upset when Snake was revealed to be sitting on the sidelines for Super Smash Bros. 4 — we never got to see how his Figure Player might have behaved in that game! Luckily, Snake is back and better than ever in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, complete with a rather underrated FP that can contend against some of the best in the game. If you’d like to read more about his metagame history, head over to the Snake wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Pokémon Trainer amiibo Guide

Over the years, we’ve received a lot of questions regarding the Pokémon Trainer Figure Player. That’s understandable, then, because you would think that Pokémon Trainer is a complicated character. Unfortunately, you’d be thinking wrong: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s developers really took the easy way out crafting this fighter’s AI, and it shows. If you’d like to learn more about Pokémon Trainer’s metagame history before we begin (and how good Charizard was in Super Smash Bros. 4), feel free to read his corresponding wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Falco amiibo Guide

Falco is one of three Star Fox representatives in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In order of viability, the three are ranked like this: Wolf is best, Falco is second best, and Fox is third best (or in this case, worst). With Spirits on, though, Falco becomes stronger — to the point where he may even be better than Wolf! If you want to learn all about Falco’s metagame history, that information is stored on his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Richter amiibo Guide

Most of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s newcomers are well-represented in competitive amiibo training. In fact, King K. Rool and Incineroar are among the most common fighters in unrestricted tournament brackets! Then we have Simon and Richter, who are undoubtedly the least represented of any newcomer introduced in this game. Still, the two have a great deal of potential, and we’ve got some top-tier training strategies for those of you wanting to raise yours to a new level. If you’d like to learn more about Richter’s metagame history, you can do so on his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Special thanks to jozz for contributing Richter’s training information!
