Training the strongest Ken amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Here we go. Ken’s amiibo figure was first released on April 11, 2019. At the time of writing, it’s October 2020. There’s a reason it’s taken so long for us to push out a Ken guide: his Figure Player is bad. If you’re looking to train a powerful Ken amiibo that can use cool combos and overwhelm opponents, get that out of your head as soon as possible. We’re going to try and do that, but Ken has one of the most notoriously uncooperative AIs in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Without further ado, let’s pull out all the stops to train a decent Ken amiibo!

Training the strongest Richter amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Today we’re going to be discussing Richter! One of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s most unique newcomers (and absolutely, incontestably cooler than Simon). His optimal training strategy is going to seem kind of strange, though, because we’re not really going to be focusing on projectiles! As with most of our Echo Fighter character guides, the Richter and Simon guides are going to be just about the same. No point in rewriting them if they’re pretty much the same character, right? So feel free to read either guide!

Training the strongest Simon amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Today we’re going to be discussing Simon! One of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s most unique newcomers.

As with most of our Echo Fighter character guides, the Simon and Richter guides are going to be just about the same. No point in rewriting them if they’re pretty much the same character, right? So feel free to read either guide!

Training the strongest Sonic amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

If you’re new to amiibo training, and you’re looking at the Sonic guide… then we’ve got good news for you. He’s not seen as a toxic character at all — at least, not in the context of amiibo training! Sonic’s actually kind of overlooked, but some would argue that’s a label he’s deserved for a long time. Regardless, it’s good to see Sonic amiibo in tournaments. If you want to add yours to that statistic, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s get started!

Training the strongest Falco amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Falco is one of three Star Fox representatives in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In order of viability, the three are ranked like this: Wolf is best, Falco is second best, and Fox is third best. With Spirits on, though, Falco becomes a little better, and it’s arguable that he might even be stronger than Wolf with Instadrop equipped. Regardless, we’re going to talk about it all today! If you want to learn how to train your Falco amiibo – with or without Spirits – then let’s continue!
