We’re not exactly sure what it is about Super Smash Bros. 4 newcomers, but a ton of them are super underrepresented in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo tournaments. Duck Hunt is one such fighter, but unfortunately, for good reason: their AI is one of the most disappointing in the game. If you’re looking to train a Duck Hunt amiibo to camp and use its projectiles to their max potential, then we’ve got bad news: it doesn’t do that very well. Our training strategy for Duck Hunt might seem a little strange, then, but with proper training, the retro duo still has a place in the metagame!

Mii Gunner and Yoshi aside, Olimar’s Figure Player might just win the award for “most improved in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate“! Back in Super Smash Bros. 4, Olimar was stuck somewhere between the mid- and low-tiers. Now he’s a solid high-tier, mainly thanks to the many moveset and AI buffs he enjoyed during the transition between games. By all accounts, though, Olimar’s position in our metagame could be even higher. He’s still really underrepresented (as many fighters are), so we hope this guide might encourage some of you to train up a strong Olimar amiibo! Let’s get started, then.

Dark Samus is – as you might have guessed – Samus’ Echo Fighter! They’re virtually identical, except for one key difference: Dark Samus is much cooler. Save for different animations, victory screens, and a slight difference in posture, the two are exactly the same. That means our Samus and Dark Samus guides will be the same, too! They’re completely interchangeable, so feel free to read this guide if you’re training Samus and the Samus guide if you’re training Dark Samus. The training strategies we discuss will be just about word-for-word identical!

Chrom was probably the least controversial Fire Emblem newcomer we’ve had in a while! He’s Roy’s Echo Fighter, which might make you think the two fighters are similar. And they are! But despite that, Chrom performs noticeably better than Roy, mainly due to his more consistent hits (as Roy has a reverse tipper whereas Chrom deals consistent damage). A quick heads-up: save for a few small differences, this guide is going to be very similar to the Roy guide. Mainly because Roy and Chrom are, in fact, very similar.

Ganondorf is notorious for playing a number of roles in the Super Smash Bros. series; the “newbie killer” and “AI killer” are a few such roles. As you might expect, Ganondorf’s powerful smash attacks are often too much for AI opponents to deal with. This was even true in Super Smash Bros. 4, where he was considered top-tier! Ganondorf isn’t quite there in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but he’s still a high-tier contender with a ton of room to improve. Still, Ganondorf as a high tier? What kind of metagame is this? Today, we’re going to be going over tips and tricks you can employ to train a strong Ganondorf amiibo!
