Training the strongest Samus amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Samus has had a rough life. Not in terms of Metroid lore, but in terms of her history in the amiibo metagame. Super Smash Bros. 4 was certainly a struggle, and Samus was ranked as one of the three worst characters (alongside R.O.B. and Mega Man — all three were robotic, for some reason) on our official tier list. In Ultimate, things are much better for Samus. By all accounts, she’s still not great; if you’re looking to train one though, you’re in luck — it’s easier now than ever before!

Bayonetta, Sheik, and Zero Suit Samus. These three characters have something in common: they’re not very good — at least when it comes to AI. In the context of our amiibo tier list, Bayonetta and Sheik aren’t rising anytime soon. But Zero Suit Samus has risen and has the potential to rise even further! She’s been quite underrepresented until recently, so now’s as good a time as ever to start training her!
