Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Ike amiibo Guide

Out of all the Fire Emblem fighters available in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Ike might just be the strongest — or at least, he was until Byleth came around to claim that spot. Regardless, Ike was pretty good in Super Smash Bros. 4 and he’s pretty good in this game, too. His unique traits – which include strong attacks, strong attacks, and strong attacks – all contribute to Ike’s respectable position on our tier list. If you’d like to learn more about his metagame history, please refer to his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Special thanks to Murbert for contributing Ike’s training information!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Robin amiibo Guide

There are a lot of underrepresented characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In fact, if you’ve read many of our training guides, you might have noticed that the word “underrepresented” is kind of a synonym for “a bad character”. That’s not the case with Robin, though: of all the underrepresented fighters in Ultimate, Robin might just have the most potential. If you’d like to learn more about their metagame history, feel free to do so over at their corresponding wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Roy amiibo Guide

If you’re looking for the Roy that is part of Bowser Jr.’s character slot and wound up here instead, please follow this link to be directed to the correct training guide.

Super Smash Bros. 4 was a sad era for Roy. In fact, he didn’t even make the cut at first! He was brought back as a DLC fighter, but was considered an inferior clone of Marth and Lucina (who were top-tier). Plus, Roy’s reverse tipper mechanic was kind of dangerous: it forced him to get up close and personal with fighters you really don’t want to get up close and personal with. Things are looking up for Roy in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and if you’d like to learn more about his metagame history, you can read up over at his corresponding wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Corrin amiibo Guide

Corrin made their first Smash Bros. appearance as a downloadable fighter in Super Smash Bros. 4. They were released in February 2016, but players weren’t able to get their hands on the character’s amiibo figure until July 2017. That’s a long wait! Since then, Corrin’s kind of been flying under the radar. Trainers generally prefer other Fire Emblem representatives, namely Chrom and Byleth. Corrin’s huge range and high attack power give them a niche of their own, though, so they’ve still got a ton of potential to explore. If you want to read more about Corrin’s metagame history, check out their corresponding wiki entry. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Byleth amiibo Guide

Byleth could be considered one of the most highly-anticipated Figure Players of all time! 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. Feel free to check it out! Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!
