Training the strongest Kirby amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

“Kirby Kirby Kirby, that’s the name you should know”, except in this case, he isn’t quite the star of the show. At the beginning of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s metagame, Kirby was overlooked and underrated. It wasn’t until fairly recently that a clear “strongest Kirby amiibo” emerged, causing the character’s tier list placement to shoot up significantly. At the time of writing, no fighter has improved as much as Kirby has. It’s time to take a look at what makes Kirby strong after all — let’s get started!

This season we will be changing things up a little bit by increasing the number of participants, providing multiple chances to qualify, increasing the prize pool, and upping the quality of the winner’s trophy by giving away the hand-painted, golden trophmiibo you see in the banner image!

Training the strongest Terry amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Dedicated amiibo trainers who have worked with Ken might be concerned for Terry — and understandably so. After all, Ken’s AI is notorious for its incredible lack of understanding regarding its own moveset. Luckily, the same doesn’t apply to Terry; following in the footsteps of Joker, Mr. Bogard’s AI has been blessed with an impressive knowledge of its entire kit. Terry has a lot of potential, as he’s a heavyweight with powerful combos and strong single-hit attacks. In case you haven’t heard, we were able to datamine Terry’s amiibo file a few weeks back, and today we’re ready to go in-depth on the best training strategies you can use on day one!

Thanks to Abbie for contributing Terry’s training information! Feel free to check out their Twitter account by following this link.

New tournament: Exion Open II

The first-ever Exion Open tournament has concluded, and first place went to 1stAWESOMEMAN’s King K. Rool amiibo. Congratulations! For next month’s Exion Open tour, we’re going to do things a bit differently. As usual, the tournament is open to anybody who visits our site or has joined our Discord server (and we’ll be using the latter to provide tournament stream updates). Here’s everything you need to know:

  • Rules. Matches will be best two out of three. Each game will be 2-stock with a seven-minute timer. All games will be played on Ω-form stages. Double elimination this time.
  • Entries. You’ll need to have a look at our tier list. Only characters ranked in the D+ and D tiers can be entered (it’s a low-tier tour!). There aren’t too many fighters ranked in these tiers, so I hope most of you will be able to enter anyway! This time, it’s going to be one amiibo per trainer.
  • Spirits: Still not allowed just yet, sorry about that! If your FP has Spirits, you can train it anyway, send me its .bin file and request that I edit the file’s Spirits off. I’m thinking the next Exion Open will be a Spirits tour, so you can look forward to that in the near future!

Entries are due by 11:59 P.M. EST on February 19, 2020. To enter, you’ll have to send your .bin file to exionopen@gmail.com. If you need help creating your amiibo’s .bin files, check out our amiibo Powersaves guide. As usual, you have plenty of time to read our character guides, so be sure to do so if your FP needs some brushing up. The winner gets a $10 eShop card, too, so there’s a nice little incentive for anybody who enters. I hope to see your FPs on tournament day. Thanks to everybody who participates!

Training the strongest Banjo & Kazooie amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Fans of the Banjo-Kazooie series are in for a treat here! There’s finally some new Banjo & Kazooie merchandise, and it comes in the form of a (surprisingly well-made) amiibo figurine. Here’s some even better news: Banjo & Kazooie’s Figure Player is solidNot top-tier, by any means, but solid. It does have a few disappointing tendencies, unfortunately, but it’s nothing too bad. In case you were wondering, we were able to datamine Banjo & Kazooie’s amiibo file a while back, so that’s how we’re able to publish an accurate training guide so soon. Don’t forget to bookmark this page for when the Banjo & Kazooie amiibo is released for real!
