Training the strongest Raid Boss amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

As you (probably) very well know, we’ve got a complete archive of training guides for every single character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. These guides are aimed at training your amiibo to fight other amiibo, though. What about those of you who want to raise powerful Figure Players to fight human opponents? Well, we’ve got you covered, too! Today we’re going to talk about tips and tricks you can employ to train a powerful Raid Boss amiibo. And if you don’t know already, the term “Raid Boss” describes an FP with Spirits that is trained to battle human players. It was originated by YouTuber Choctopus, so be sure to check out their channel if you get a moment! Otherwise, let’s get started with the guide!

Updated amiibo training guides are now available for every character!

Today, Exion reached an important milestone: we now have fully accurate and updated training guides for every single character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! Well, that is, except for amiibo figures that haven’t been released yet. But we’ll be publishing guides on those closer to their actual release date! In the meantime, our work is far from done. In terms of amiibo training content, we’re going to be focusing on the amiibo Wiki and its individual character pages. We want to become the most complete and accurate amiibo training resource out there, and today, we moved one step closer to accomplishing that goal!

In addition to updating amiibo Wiki pages, we’ll be updating our amiibo training guides whenever new information is made available. If you notice an error – either in terms of spelling, grammar, or information – join our Discord server and let us know! We want our guides to be the best they possibly can, so we’d appreciate your help very much! We’re also going to be publishing more specific amiibo training posts to help you all get more involved in the scene, so you can look forward to that, too!

Of course, we couldn’t have done this on our own. Big thanks to everybody who contributed training information! More specifically — thanks to Blank, Riparo, MiDe, Kangoni, PrinZ, LittleFang, fammydamammy, Penne, Nozomu, TraumatizedBaconbits, Clockwerk66, Trademark, Lady Cucco, Smitty, Adam2qaz, Supernova, Splice, and forenmagra! This was truly a community effort, and we couldn’t have done it without your support! And to our readers, thank you for checking out our work! We really appreciate it.

For those of you who might just be getting into amiibo training, our general training guide is a great place to start. Beyond that, we have over eighty character-specific training guides with tips and tricks for each and every fighter! Once again, thank you all so much for the support. We’re going to continue writing cool articles, so we hope you’ll keep reading them for a long time to come!

Training the strongest Sheik amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Sad. If given one word, that’s the one we’d use to describe Sheik’s Figure Player. Alongside Bayonetta, Sheik is a contender for “worst in game” due to a wide variety of reasons. Which is a shame, because Sheik was considered mid-tier in Super Smash Bros. 4’s amiibo metagame. Simply put, if you’re looking to train a Sheik amiibo, it’s going be tough. She’s going to lose a lot of games. In some of them, she’ll be KOed early due to her lack of weight. In others, she’ll take too long to KO an opponent due to her concerning lack of kill power. Sheik’s a frustrating one, but we’re going to do our best today!

Training the strongest Isabelle amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Isabelle and Villager are Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s two Animal Crossing representatives. Between the two of them, Isabelle has definitely seen more action in amiibo tournaments. That being said, Isabelle and Villager’s optimal training strategies are very different, so if you’re looking to train a Villager amiibo, read this guide instead. Now then, without further ado, let’s go through today’s training!

Training the strongest Mii Gunner amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

When Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was first released, it didn’t take long for Mii Gunner to establish herself as a brand-new top-tier fighter. How surprising! She was pretty much forgotten in Super Smash Bros. 4, so to see a previously underutilized character do so well was great. Her claim to fame is Gunner Missile, though certain builds are centered around forward smash instead. This training guide is essentially two-in-one, because today we’re going over how to train two styles of Mii Gunner!

Thanks to MiDe for contributing Mi Gunner’s training information! Feel free to check out their YouTube channel by following this link.
