Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Piranha Plant amiibo Guide

It’s clear that, for whatever reason, the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate developers love Piranha Plant. Despite its status as a downloadable fighter, Piranha Plant’s amiibo figure was released before Young Link, Pichu, Snake, and Chrom, who were all included in the base game. To add to this, Piranha Plant has received consistent representation in our metagame over the years, though it has fallen off a bit in recent times. If you’d like to learn even more about its history in competitive tournaments, you can do so over at its wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

Special thanks to Murbert for contributing Piranha Plant’s training information!

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD – Treasure Farming Guide

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD was recently made available for Nintendo Switch, and it includes one particular mechanic that avid completionists will either love or hate: tool upgrades! In order to upgrade these tools, though, players will need to obtain a number of treasures to use as materials. Luckily, we’ve compiled a handy list of the general locations of each treasure; unfortunately, some do come down to luck but we’ve tried to be as specific as possible here.

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!

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!
