Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Rosalina & Luma amiibo Guide

Rosalina & Luma are undoubtedly a technical fighter, so it’s no surprise that the duo has been long overlooked by the competitive amiibo community. It’s a shame, too — Rosalina was considered top-tier in Super Smash Bros. 4, but due to a lack of representation that’s no longer the case in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. If you’d like to learn more about her metagame history, be sure to check out her corresponding wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Editor’s note: this is a user-contributed guide. Special thanks to Bubstry for writing this up! If you’d like to read Exion’s official Bowser guide in addition to this one, please follow this link.

Let’s get one thing straight before you read this guide: Raid Bosses can come in many shapes and sizes, so feel free to experiment with yours. But a word of advice before I move on; fast moves work best for Raid Bosses, so prioritize any quick and powerful moves that your Figure Player may be able to use.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Piranha Plant amiibo Guide

It’s clear that, for whatever reason, the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate developers love Piranha Plant. Despite its status as a downloadable fighter, Piranha Plant’s amiibo figure was released before Young Link, Pichu, Snake, and Chrom, who were all included in the base game. To add to this, Piranha Plant has received consistent representation in our metagame over the years, though it has fallen off a bit in recent times. If you’d like to learn even more about its history in competitive tournaments, you can do so over at its wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Special thanks to Murbert for contributing Piranha Plant’s training information!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Yoshi amiibo Guide

If it weren’t for the existence of Mii Gunner, Yoshi might have claimed the title for “most buffed Figure Player in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate”. In Super Smash Bros. 4, Yoshi was a bottom-tier contender who lacked tournament results and representation. Fortunately, that’s no longer the case — he is now a solid (albeit still underrepresented) pick in the competitive amiibo scene. If you’d like to read more about Yoshi’s metagame history over the years, head over to his corresponding wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Luigi amiibo Guide

Believe it or not, Luigi was a top-tier character in Super Smash Bros. 4’s amiibo metagame! It took trainers quite a while to discover his best move: his jab. That isn’t a joke, by the way — in that game, most top-tier fighters relied on their jabs. If that sounds boring, don’t worry! Things aren’t that simple in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, as Luigi is required to use much more of his moveset to be able to properly contend. If you want to learn more about his metagame history, feel free to read his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Special thanks to Staples for contributing Luigi’s training information!
