New tier-restricted, progression-based amiibo tournaments

For the past year, the team at Spirit Amiibo  Matchups (a Discord community dedicated to all things Spirited amiibo) have been doing large super-majors in order to help build the official Spirited amiibo tier list. Now that that’s come to fruition, it’s time to set our sights on something bigger!

The Raid Boss amiibo tier list’s character placements, explained

In case you aren’t already aware, we recently updated our Raid Boss tier list for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Unlike our other tier lists, this one specifically is more subjective because you can’t really rank Raid Bosses using tournament data. To help clear up any potential confusion, we’ve put together a list of every character on the tier list and why they’re ranked in their respective tiers. Do note that this post covers the Raid Boss tier list as it appeared on March 17, 2022 — it’s possible that we update the list in the future.

More information on amiibo personality calculation has surfaced

There have been many strides made in understanding amiibo personalities over the past few months. Thanks to MiDe, we finally determined what each byte in Figure Player code controls — you can find a list of those here. Yesterday, we figured out how personalities are calculated! We’ve updated our personality guide with the new information, but the general gist is that they’re determined via a point system. There are eight categories of three personalities each, and (for example) if your FP is extremely defensive it will fall into the defensive category. From there it will be either Cautious, Realistic, or Unflappable based on the intensity of its defensiveness, so to speak.

This information was discovered by Ske, so huge thanks to them! None of this information would be public knowledge without Ske or MiDe, so we greatly appreciate the time they spent researching this information. We’ll be updating our personality wiki entry soon, too, so keep an eye out for that! In the meantime, we’ve been hosting lots of events on our Discord server, so feel free to come join them if you’re interested!

The vanilla amiibo tier list’s March 2022 update

It’s been a few months since our last update, but the community’s official tier list for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo training has received a new revision! This version raises Roy, Bowser Jr., and Min Min by one tier each. It also adds Pyra / Mythra and Sephiroth, who haven’t appeared on any of our tier lists up until now. You can check out the full list right here.

If you haven’t seen, we’ve also updated our Raid Boss tier list. We’ll have a new post coming out in the next few days that explains the placements of each character, so please look forward to it! We also created our first official Spirits amiibo tier list, so feel free to check that out as well when you get a chance.

In terms of site plans, we’ll be covering content for Kirby and the Forgotten Land later this month! Things like collectible locations and perhaps boss guides or something of the sort. At the time of writing, there isn’t much going on with amiibo training, so that’s why we’ve shifted focus a bit. Thanks for understanding! As always, you’re welcome to join our Discord community if you have any questions about the tier list or its character placements.

The official amiibo tier list for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Spirits)

Welcome to the community’s official tier list for the Spirited amiibo format! The placements are all based on tournament data from the Spirit Amiibo Matchups server. If you see something you don’t agree with, feel free to participate in the tourneys held there. Exion also hosts a vanilla tier list and a Raid Boss tier list, if either of those interest you. Otherwise, let’s get right into the list!
