Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Byleth amiibo Guide

Byleth could be considered one of the most highly-anticipated Figure Players of all time — that is, at least as far as the competitive community goes! This is in part thanks to Byleth’s powerful side special, Areadbhar, which can slice through AI opponents over and over again to either rack up damage or KO. Of course, Areadbhar isn’t as strong against human foes, but Byleth has more tricks up their sleeve to make up for it. Before we begin, we’ve got more information on Byleth’s strengths and weaknesses over at their corresponding wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Please note that this guide refers to characters who were recently released. The information presented in this guide was obtained via early-access amiibo files in December 2020, and is subject to change when more tournament and matchup data is made available.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – King K. Rool amiibo Guide

Heavyweight fighters were typically strong contenders in Smash 4 amiibo tournaments. The burly brutes Bowser and Ganondorf ruled that metagame, and claimed championship after championship thanks to their powerful finishers and rock-solid defenses. But now, we’ve moved onto Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and the game has changed. Enter King K. Rool, a heavyweight fiend who puts Smash 4 Bowser and Ganondorf to shame. This crowned combatant breaks the mold of bulky fighters by bringing a unique set of attributes to the table, and you can read more about these on King K. Rool’s wiki page. Otherwise, let’s get right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Ice Climbers amiibo Guide (Competitive)

No amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has to rose to glory quite like the Ice Climbers have. When their figurine was first released in February 2019, the Ice Climbers were awful. Their AI was relatively primitive and would self-destruct over and over and over again (since the leading climber would be launched off-stage, use an up special before the partner caught up, and then die). Thankfully, the game’s developers heard our desperate pleas and enhanced the Ice Climbers’ AI via a game update. Now the Ice Climbers have climbed up from bottom-tier to mid-tier, which is a really impressive improvement! if you’d like to learn more about the Ice Climbers’ metagame progression, you can find all of that information on their wiki page. If not, then let’s jump into today’s training routines!

Please note that this particular training guide targets the amiibo-versus-amiibo format. If you’d like to learn how to train a Raid Boss Ice Climbers amiibo (amiibo-versus-human), feel free to check out our corresponding guide instead.
