How to train a Roy amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

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.

Welcome to our Roy amiibo 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!

Special thanks to Riparo for contributing Roy’s training information!

How to train a Corrin amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

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!

How to train a Byleth amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

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!

Banjo & Kazooie, Terry Bogard, and Byleth AI Predictions

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!
