Training the strongest Ken amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Here we go. Ken’s amiibo figure was first released on April 11, 2019. At the time of writing, it’s October 2020. There’s a reason it’s taken so long for us to push out a Ken guide: his Figure Player is bad. If you’re looking to train a powerful Ken amiibo that can use cool combos and overwhelm opponents, get that out of your head as soon as possible. We’re going to try and do that, but Ken has one of the most notoriously uncooperative AIs in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Without further ado, let’s pull out all the stops to train a decent Ken amiibo!

Training the strongest Ryu amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Ryu made his Super Smash Bros. series debut as a DLC fighter in Super Smash Bros. 4. He’s got a few unique tricks up his sleeve: his normals are split into held and tapped versions, and his special moves can be executed via unique button inputs that increase their power. Figure Players generally don’t make good use of character gimmicks (see Bayonetta, Ken, and the Ice Climbers), but Ryu is a rare exception!
