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

Joker might just be the ultimate Raid Boss amiibo — that is, in terms of versatility. This is thanks to his hard-coded combos, which are arguably the most impressive of any AI in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Joker can do it all: he can use dragdown up air combos, gun dashing, and guaranteed smash attack follow-ups. It’s clear that the developers wanted this FP to be flashy, and they’ve certainly achieved that goal. Joker isn’t quite as impressive in the competitive scene, but he’s still a solid mid-tier fighter who is well worth your time. Before we continue, we’ve got even more information on Joker’s strengths and weaknesses over at his wiki page, so be sure to bookmark it for later if you’re interested. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Special thanks to Dreamy Jay and Leeya for contributing Joker’s training information!

The Joker and Hero amiibo files have been accessed early

Last night, we made a major breakthrough — and long story short, the Exion team has crafted working files of the Joker and Hero amiibo that can be used on any Nintendo Switch console! Compatibility for Joker and Hero was added in Version 8.1.0, but their figurines don’t release until October 2nd. That means we’ve got access to Joker and Hero two months early, and it also means we’ll have credible, tested guides available for each character before they even release. You’ll be able to read best practices for training both Joker and Hero on the day they come out!

This follows a similar occurrence in 2019, in which Pichu was spoofed and access almost three months before release. We do have preliminary Joker and Hero training guides available, and plan on updating them once more before release. When we do, they’ll be brought to the front of the main page, so don’t worry about missing them! In the meantime, I would like to thank Supernova for greatly assisting in spoofing these characters and helping us access and analyze them months in advance. Feel free to check out his YouTube channel for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate mods and amiibo training content. For more information on Joker and Hero, check out the Exion Discord server.
