Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Zero Suit Samus amiibo Guide

Bayonetta, Sheik, and Zero Suit Samus all have something in common: they’re not very good FPs. In the context of our amiibo tier list, these three fighters are very close to “bottom-of-the-barrel”, and unfortunately that doesn’t look to be changing anytime soon. If you’d like to learn more about Zero Suit Samus’ metagame history before we continue, please refer to her corresponding wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Special thanks to forenmagra for contributing Zero Suit Samus’ training information!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Roy amiibo Guide

If you’re looking for the Roy that is part of Bowser Jr.’s character slot and wound up here instead, please follow this link to be directed to the correct training guide.

Super Smash Bros. 4 was a sad era for Roy. In fact, he didn’t even make the cut at first! He was brought back as a DLC fighter, but was considered an inferior clone of Marth and Lucina (who were top-tier). Plus, Roy’s reverse tipper mechanic was kind of dangerous: it forced him to get up close and personal with fighters you really don’t want to get up close and personal with. Things are looking up for Roy in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and if you’d like to learn more about his metagame history, you can read up over at his corresponding wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Special thanks to Riparo for contributing Roy’s training information!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Snake amiibo Guide

People were upset when Snake was revealed to be sitting on the sidelines for Super Smash Bros. 4 — we never got to see how his Figure Player might have behaved in that game! Luckily, Snake is back and better than ever in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, complete with a rather underrated FP that can contend against some of the best in the game. If you’d like to read more about his metagame history, head over to the Snake wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Pac-Man amiibo Guide

In the context of competitive amiibo training, Pac-Man is an interesting case. Way back in Super Smash Bros. 4, Pac-Man was considered one of the worst fighters in the game. Fortunately, a group of dedicated trainers was able to change this, and by the end of the metagame, he was considered mid-tier! Pac-Man hasn’t had as much character development in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but he’s still a solid contender that can wreak some serious havoc on low-tier tournaments. If you’d like to learn even more about his metagame history, feel free to read his corresponding wiki page too. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Ganondorf amiibo Guide

Competitive amiibo training has been around since the release of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U in November 2014. Since then, Ganondorf has always been considered at least high-tier — and this is true in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as well. As you can imagine, his powerful moveset is often too much for AI opponents to manage, and this trait helps Ganondorf along in high-stakes tournament brackets. If you’d like to learn more about his metagame history before we continue, please refer to the Ganondorf wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!
