Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Bowser amiibo Guide (Raid Boss)

Bowser is one of the most notorious characters in competitive amiibo training. He was banned from amiibo tournaments in December 2019, as he was considered the strongest fighter at the time. Surprisingly, Bowser’s strength carries over to the Raid Boss format too. His AI is top-notch, and his signature strength can rather easily overwhelm a human opponent. If you’d like to learn more about Bowser’s strengths and weaknesses, you can check his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into training!

Please note that this particular training guide targets the amiibo-versus-human format. If you’d like to learn how to train a competitive Bowser amiibo (amiibo-versus-amiibo), feel free to check out our corresponding guide instead.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Ice Climbers amiibo Guide (Raid Boss)

Once upon a time, the Ice Climbers were one of the worst Figure Players available, both as a competitive fighter and as a Raid Boss. After posting several long essays discussing the Ice Climbers and their numerous AI problems – including self-destructs at 0% and the leading climber being unaware of its partners’ existence – the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate developers updated the game and made the Ice Climbers much better. Now they’re a rather interesting Raid Boss, and one that’s well worth your time. If you’d like to learn even more about the Ice Climbers’ strengths and weaknesses before we continue, you can do so here.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Ness amiibo Guide (Raid Boss)

As you might (or might not) know, Ness’s amiibo is considered top-tier in the competitive metagame (amiibo-versus-amiibo, that is). It’s tough to accurately rank Raid Boss amiibo in a tier list, but if we absolutely had to, Ness certainly would not be top-tier. This is because he suffers from an unfortunate and rather crippling flaw: a highly exploitable recovery. Still, if you’re determined to raise a powerful Raid Boss Ness amiibo that can beat up your friends, it’s absolutely doable. And that’s exactly what we’re here to talk about today! First, if you’d like to learn more about Ness’ strengths and weaknesses, you can read his wiki page. But if you’d prefer to jump into training instead, then let’s get right into it!
