Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Bowser amiibo Guide (Competitive)

For as long as amiibo training has existed, Bowser has been at the very top of its competitive metagames. The King of Koopas made waves throughout the entirety of Super Smash Bros. 4’s metagame, and unfortunately, he was even further buffed in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Though he does lose to Incineroar, he beats just about every other fighter. Bowser is so strong, in fact, that’s he banned from most competitive tournaments. You might have a tough time finding a tournament to enter that allows Bowser, but in case you do, we’ve got a great training strategy you can use to make yours really strong! If you want to learn more about Bowser’s strengths, you can check out his wiki page.

Please note that this particular training guide targets the amiibo-versus-amiibo format. If you’d like to learn how to train a Raid Boss Bowser amiibo (amiibo-versus-human), feel free to check out our corresponding guide instead.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Bowser amiibo Guide (Raid Boss)

Bowser is one of the most notorious characters in competitive amiibo training. He was banned from amiibo tournaments in December 2019, as he was considered the strongest fighter at the time. Surprisingly, Bowser’s strength carries over to the Raid Boss format too. His AI is top-notch, and his signature strength can rather easily overwhelm a human opponent. If you’d like to learn more about Bowser’s strengths and weaknesses, you can check his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into training!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Mario amiibo Guide (Competitive)

Mario has always been kind of a strange Figure Player. More specifically, Mario’s AI has been wonky since Super Smash Bros. 4. It’s known for being incredibly spammy, though the moves it spams tend to differ between games. In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario’s AI is notorious for spamming its down air, and this issue is often severe enough to deter trainers from raising this character altogether. Dr. Mario is considered the better fighter, so if you’re looking for tournament results you might as well switch over right now! If you want to learn more about Mario’s strengths and weaknesses, though, you can do so over at his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s continue!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Lucas amiibo Guide (Competitive)

Lucas is the perfect example of a Figure Player who has become well-optimized over the years. At first, off-stage play was his jam. He’d be taught to use aerials to utterly crush opponents trying to recover. And while that’s still one viable strategy, most Lucas amiibo these days choose to stay on-stage instead. In terms of their optimal playstyles, you might even say that Ness and Lucas are rather similar. If you’d like to learn even more about Lucas’s strengths and weaknesses, please check his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!
