Nintendo recently announced the release dates of the Banjo & Kazooie, Terry Bogard, and Byleth amiibo figures: March 26, 2021! That’s not as long a wait as we originally thought, so pretty soon we’re going to be hard at work labbing these new characters for three brand-new training guides!
It’s important to note that preliminary AI for Banjo, Terry, and Byleth already exists in the game’s files, but is only accessible via Switch modifications. We can’t use this AI to make training guides early, because it’s entirely possible that the developers update this AI before the amiibo are officially released. Instead, we’ll have to wait until the amiibo functionality is patched in. We’ll still get the guides out early, so no worries! In the meantime, we’re here today to make a few bold predictions about how these new characters might function. Of course, it’s possible that all of these predictions are totally off-base, but it’ll be interesting to go back and read this post again a few months in the future. Let’s see how accurate these wind up being!

There are a lot of underrepresented characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In fact, if you’ve read many of our guides, you might have noticed the word “underrepresented” is kind of a synonym for “not a very good character”. But that’s not the case here. Of all the “underrepresented” characters in Ultimate, Robin’s probably got the most potential out of any of them! It’s time to change Robin’s representation for the better, and that starts with this guide!

Corrin made their first appearance as a downloadable fighter in Super Smash Bros. 4. They were released in early 2016, and we didn’t receive their amiibo figures until July 2017. What a wait! Since then, Corrin’s pretty much been flying under the radar. Trainers seem to prefer other Fire Emblem representatives, namely Lucina, Chrom, and Ike. Corrin’s huge range and attack power gives them a niche of their own, though, so they’ve still got a ton of potential to explore!

Chrom was probably the least controversial Fire Emblem newcomer we’ve had in a while! He’s Roy’s Echo Fighter, which might make you think the two fighters are similar. And they are! But despite that, Chrom performs noticeably better than Roy, mainly due to his more consistent hits (as Roy has a reverse tipper whereas Chrom deals consistent damage). A quick heads-up: save for a few small differences, this guide is going to be very similar to the Roy guide. Mainly because Roy and Chrom are, in fact, very similar.

By the end of Super Smash Bros. 4’s metagame, Lucina found herself at the very top of our tier list. Consistently powerful finishers, a solid recovery, and an excellent damage-racker in Dancing Blade eclipsed the kit of every other character. Lucina has fallen off significantly for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but she’s still considered viable, by all accounts. Just as a quick heads-up, this guide is going to be almost identical to Marth’s outside of the introduction and a few points in the introduction and training sections. You don’t need to read both if you don’t want to! Now then, let’s get started with today’s training.
