Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Min Min amiibo Guide

Welcome to our Min Min amiibo guide! Min Min was the first fighter to be introduced as part of Fighter’s Pass 2 in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. While unpopular among many fans of the series, her corresponding Figure Player is very well suited to the competitive metagame! If you’d like to learn more about Min Min’s strengths, weaknesses, and metagame history, feel free to check out her wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Where to download amiibo bin files for Smash, Animal Crossing, and more

If you’re an amiibo collector, one thing’s for sure: amiibo are expensive. And that’s assuming you buy them at retail price! Most actual amiibo figures aren’t readily in stock, so resellers have them available at an even higher price. Depending on the character you want, the amiibo might cost a hundred dollars or more — and that’s a shame. As a result, many players search for .bin files to create custom tags to scan in amiibo manually. Though we can’t directly give out bin files, we can help you better if you join our Discord community. We host events and such too there – including Animal Crossing visits – so feel free to drop by!

The struggles of hosting a Battle Arena amiibo tournament

It goes without saying that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s amiibo metagame is one of the most unique competitive scenes of all time. On the surface, the idea of raising a fighter and sending it away to do battle is highly accessible — and indeed, for tournaments that allow file submission, you don’t even need to attend the actual tour to see your Figure Player’s results! Unfortunately, hosting and entering file submission competitions requires the use of amiibo Powersaves, and while they aren’t all that expensive, it’s an additional barrier to entry nonetheless. For the longest time, we had no choice but to host file submission tournaments — that is, until Nintendo added amiibo compatibility to online Battle Arenas. You would think the struggles of hosting amiibo tours would end there, but that isn’t the case: Battle Arenas are actually quite difficult to work with, and for a variety of reasons.

The Min Min, Steve, and Sephiroth amiibo files have been accessed early

At the time of writing, the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate patch containing Sora is now available! More importantly, though, the Min Min, Steve, and Sephiroth amiibo files were added to the game and can be accessed by any Nintendo Switch system without mods (thanks to jozz for this). Furthermore, it appears that Sephiroth’s amiibo may be released alongside Min Min and Steve / Alex in Spring 2022 (despite this not being announced at the moment). For more information, please direct your questions to our Discord community!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Impact Run amiibo Guide

Editor’s note: this is a user-contributed guide. Special thanks to Isla for writing this up! If you’d like to join her Spirit-focused amiibo server for more information on how they work, please follow this link.

Hello I’m Isla, I’ve been in the amiibo scene for over a year now and over the past few months I’ve been testing out this Spirit hoping to find some level of success. Impact run is interesting because much in the same vein as the Instadrop Spirit effect, Impact run puts a hitbox over your dash. Unlike Instadrop, Impact run does not affect your move speed (kind of like how Instadrop greatly boosts your falling speed when fast-falling). I do want to preface this guide with a small warning: this Spirit hasn’t seen any notable tournament placings, and is only just now getting proper experimentation. That doesn’t mean this Spirit is hopeless, though!
