Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Link amiibo Guide

Of all the Figure Players available in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, none have remained as consistent a top-level threat from the very beginning quite like Link. He’s one of the most frequently-entered characters in tournaments for multiple reasons — his amiibo is rather common, he’s a popular and well-known gaming icon, and he’s powerful and versatile in the competitive metagame. If you’d like to learn more about Link, you can do so over at his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Cloud amiibo Guide

We usually start off our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate veteran training guides by talking about the character’s performance in the previous title, Super Smash Bros. 4. Let’s continue that trend by stating that Cloud was insane in that game. He was one of two fighters to be completely banned from competitive play, though he was later allowed back under a strict set of equipment restrictions. Cloud isn’t quite as strong in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but he’s still pretty good — in fact, he’s a high mid-tier. Whether it’s as a tournament contender or a Raid Boss, Cloud’s got tons of potential. If you’d like to learn more about him, feel free to check out his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Bowser amiibo Guide

For as long as amiibo training has existed, Bowser has been at the very top of its competitive metagames. For the longest time, the King of Koopas was seen as the strongest FP in the game! That all changed when Incineroar was released, though, and Bowser has been falling off ever since. He was once entirely banned from tournaments, but they’re starting to ease up on Bowser restrictions. For more information on Bowser’s metagame history, check out his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training! This character is especially finicky, so make sure your patience meter is high before continuing.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Hero amiibo Guide

Compared to other Figure Player characters available in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Hero hasn’t been around for all that long. But despite that, he’s racked up an impressive list of tournament results and a ton of representation. Hero is one of the most versatile FPs in the game – seriously, he can KO his enemies in so many different ways – and thus is one of the most successful Ultimate newcomers in competitive amiibo training. If you’d like to read more about Hero’s strengths and weaknesses before you continue, you can do so at his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Joker amiibo Guide

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 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!
