Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Mario amiibo Guide (Competitive)

Mario has always been kind of a strange Figure Player. More specifically, Mario’s AI has been wonky since Super Smash Bros. 4. It’s known for being incredibly spammy, though the moves it spams tend to differ between games. In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario’s AI is notorious for spamming its down air, and this issue is often severe enough to deter trainers from raising this character altogether. Dr. Mario is considered the better fighter, so if you’re looking for tournament results you might as well switch over right now! If you want to learn more about Mario’s strengths and weaknesses, though, you can do so over at his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s continue!

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 Mario amiibo (amiibo-versus-human), feel free to check out our corresponding guide instead.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Lucas amiibo Guide (Competitive)

Lucas is the perfect example of a Figure Player who has become well-optimized over the years. At first, off-stage play was his jam. He’d be taught to use aerials to utterly crush opponents trying to recover. And while that’s still one viable strategy, most Lucas amiibo these days choose to stay on-stage instead. In terms of their optimal playstyles, you might even say that Ness and Lucas are rather similar. If you’d like to learn even more about Lucas’s strengths and weaknesses, please check his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Please note that this particular training guide targets the amiibo-versus-amiibo format.

Thanks to gamer (Discord tag: gamer,#2283) for contributing Lucas’s training information!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Mario amiibo Guide (Raid Boss)

You might think Mario is a good Raid Boss amiibo for beginners. After all, throughout the Super Smash Bros. series, Mario has traditionally served as a beginner-friendly fighter (though he’s also quite good in competitive play these days). Unfortunately, that’s not the case here, as Mario’s AI is notoriously difficult to work with sometimes. It’s got a bunch of issues spamming particular moves, and today, we’re going to talk about ways to [hopefully] get around these quirks! In the meantime, if you’d like to learn more about Mario’s strengths and weaknesses, you can check his page over at the amiibo Wiki.

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

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Kirby amiibo Guide (Competitive)

Near the beginning of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s competitive amiibo metagame, Kirby was overlooked and underrated. It wasn’t until fairly recently that a clear “strongest Kirby amiibo” emerged, and this caused the character’s tier list placement to shoot up significantly. These days, Kirby is actually considered high-tier! If you’re a Kirby main, hearing the words “Kirby is high-tier” might be strange. But it’s true, and it’s amazing! If you want to learn more about Kirby’s strengths, you can read all about them on his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s continue!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Kirby amiibo Guide (Raid Boss)

Throughout the Super Smash Bros. series, Kirby has been known as a simple fighter who’s easy to learn and (arguably) hard to master. And that’s certainly the case with Kirby in the context of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo training, too! Kirby doesn’t have many prominent weaknesses – at least, not as a Raid Boss – which makes him rather easy to train. If you’re looking for a beginner-friendly character (or just really like Kirby, which is understandable), you’ve found him! Before we continue, we also have a wiki page on Kirby that explains his strengths and weaknesses more clearly, if you’re interested!

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