Believe it or not, Luigi was a top-tier character in Super Smash Bros. 4’s amiibo scene! It took trainers quite a while to discover his hidden potential, and it appears the same is true for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Like many others, Luigi suffers from a lack of representation; despite this, he’s held in high regard and is thought to counter or contend against many common threats.
It’s clear that – for whatever reason – the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate developers love Piranha Plant. Despite being a DLC fighter, Piranha Plant’s amiibo figure was released before Young Link, Pichu, Snake, and Chrom, who were all included in the base game. Wow. To add to this, Piranha Plant has received consistent representation in our metagame, where it’s actually considered one of the strongest fighters available!
Welcome back! It’s been a while since we’ve done one of these, but starting today, we’ll be sure to update you all whenever our amiibo tier list is changed. And, by sheer coincidence, it has! There’s been a lot going on in our metagame over the past few months, so check out some of the rises and drops that have occurred!
Hero is one of five (and soon-to-be six) DLC characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Hero’s amiibo is actually the only DLC fighter we were able to test; while the preliminary AI will likely be changed in the final game, we did get an early look at how Hero might play. His kit seems rather promising, and when the real Hero amiibo does come out, you’ll be able to check back and get a headstart in training the strongest one out there!
It’s been a while since we’ve done one of these: a preliminary guide for a character who isn’t released yet! This week, we’re starting with Joker from Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal. It’s difficult to say for sure how strong he’ll be, but that’s why this is labeled preliminary! In the event that the Joker amiibo is ever released, you’ll be able to come back to this post and use our advice to train a good one from the very beginning. This guide will be updated in the future, so stay tuned for that!
