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, and Luigi is required to use much more of his moveset to be able to 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!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Wario amiibo Guide

In Super Smash Bros. 4, heavyweight fighters often translated to powerful Figure Players. In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate… heavyweight fighters also translate to powerful Figure Players. Some things never change! It makes sense, then, that Wario’s placement in both metagames is rather similar. He’s quick, has a decent recovery, and is of course very strong. If you want to learn more about Wario’s metagame history, feel free to read his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Donkey Kong amiibo Guide

Donkey Kong has certainly had quite the history when it comes to amiibo training! In the beginning of the Super Smash Bros. 4 metagame, everybody hated DK. His AI just would not learn and it was very difficult to get the character to cooperate. Even so, he ended up finding a unique niche of his own towards the end of Smash 4’s lifespan! Which goes to show that “bad” Figure Players might not be considered as such forever. If you’d like to learn more about Donkey Kong’s metagame history, check out his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Dr. Mario amiibo Guide

If you’re looking for Mario, you’ve got the wrong character! Kind of. Between Mario and Dr. Mario, the doctor is considered the stronger contender. He’s got stronger moves, stronger moves, and stronger moves, too, which adds up to a big advantage in competitive tournaments. Although the two fighters are similar, their training strategies are different, so make sure you’ve got the right Mario before you continue! If you’d like to learn more about Dr. Mario’s metagame history, you can read his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Daisy amiibo Guide

It’s time to cover another pair of Echo Fighters: Peach and Daisy! These two have been incredibly underrated for the entirety of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo metagame, and it’s easy to see why: they’re incredibly difficult to train effectively. Their AI is notorious for misusing its float ability, which has frustrated trainers worldwide for several years now. Still, not all hope is lost — these fighters do have a good bit of potential yet to be explored. If you want to learn more about Daisy’s metagame history, you can do so over at her wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!
