If you’d like to learn more about Zero Suit Samus’ metagame history before we continue, please refer to her corresponding wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Dark Samus amiibo Guide

Welcome to our Dark Samus amiibo guide! Dark Samus is – as you might have guessed – Samus’ Echo Fighter! They’re virtually identical, save for one key difference: Dark Samus is much cooler. Aside from different animations, victory screens, and a slight difference in posture, the two play exactly the same as each other. Keeping in line with this pattern, our Samus and Dark Samus guides are also the same as each other! We do have a wiki page available for Dark Samus if you’d like to give it a read before you continue. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!
