Join Exion’s official edited amiibo tour (limited slots)

Yesterday, the Exion Discord community announced the newest entry in its sophisticated and elite series of tournaments (which are referred to as F.A.R.T.). This time around, all edited Figure Players are both allowed and encouraged! A new amiibo editing tool was released just the other day, so it should be easier than ever to whip up a freshly-edited FP. You can join our aforementioned Discord server if you need any help learning how to edit.

In the meantime, here are the rules! Incineroar, Kazuya, and Captain Falcon are banned from this particular tournament, each trainer is allowed to use 1 FP, and they must be vanilla. Submissions are due by March 31, so be sure to enter — slots are capped at 32 trainers. You have to be a member of the server to join, so once you’re there, check out the tournaments channel for the submission look. Good luck to everyone entering!

New amiibo editing software is now available

For the first time ever, amiibo trainers worldwide now have access to a brand-new tool that can edit their behavior values! Up until now, nothing like this has been publicly available — similar tools were only open to elite groups of trainers. Now, anyone is welcome to use this new editing software by jozz and MiDe to test and adjust their Figure Players as needed! Of course, these won’t be legal in competitive tournaments — edited FP files are for testing purposes only, and tour hosts will be able to tell if the file was edited. You can find the download link right here. If you’d like to learn more about SAE (Smash amiibo editor for short), check out its readme file. You’ll find instructions on how to use the tool there. If you have any questions that aren’t answered there, you’re welcome to join our Discord community! Some tournaments held there actually do allow edited FP files, so you’re welcome to join one of those tours when they pop up.

This follows new research on personalities recently conducted by dataminers. It’s easier than ever to take your FP’s training file and see what kinds of values it has. Plus, now it’s easy to shift them around and test them yourself! We’ve come to have a much better understanding of amiibo AI over the past few months, and it would’ve never happened without our amazing community. If this new editor interests you, here are a few helpful resources: our personality list, our character guides, and our tournaments guide (which will help you obtain your FP’s training file).

Though you can’t whip up tournament-legal FPs using this tool, you can create easy Raid Bosses. In just a few minutes, too! For the most part, there’s no regulation on edited Raid Bosses since using them isn’t a direct competition. Feel free to check out our Raid Boss guides for the best movesets for each character. Have fun editing!

Full information on every amiibo personality now available

Thanks to recent datamines from members of the community, we’ve finally figured out the specific qualifications and behaviors of every amiibo personality in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! For the longest time, competitive trainers had no idea how the game calculated or labeled personalities. As per our recent update, we have an answer! Every behavior an FP can have is assigned a point value that contributes to a certain personality.

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.
