Rosalina & Luma are undoubtedly a technical fighter, so it’s no surprise that the duo has been long overlooked by the competitive amiibo community. It’s a shame, too — Rosalina was considered top-tier in Super Smash Bros. 4, but due to a lack of representation that’s no longer the case in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. If you’d like to learn more about her metagame history, be sure to check out her corresponding wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!
It’s the first of the month, and you know what that means: our amiibo tier list has received a slight update! Compared to the previous revision, there aren’t as many changes here, but they’re ones well worth reading anyway. Here’s everything that’s new in today’s update:
- Snake moved up to A tier.
- Meta Knight moved up to B tier.
- Villager moved up to C+ tier.
- Cloud moved down to B tier.
- Young Link moved back down to C tier.
- Toon Link moved back down to C tier.
That’s everything, then! Villager, in particular, has been getting a surprisingly impressive number of results lately. If you’d like to learn how to train your own, feel free to read our guide! If you want to train an amiibo but don’t want to train Villager, be sure to check out our full list of training guides instead. The full tier list can be found right here.
Young Link first appeared in Super Smash Bros. Melee as a clone of Link! Ten years later, he’s finally back and ready for action in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Link has received a number of moveset changes – namely a lack of tether and a new down special – so Young Link sort of maintains the status quo as a non-Breath of the Wild Link fighter. Unfortunately, his Figure Player is plagued with critical flaws that hold him back from greatness — and if you’d like to learn more, you can check out his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!
Special thanks to Bunion J for contributing Young Link’s training information!
Today is a special day — it’s August 29! And that means that six years ago today, the Amiibo Dojo officially opened its doors for the very first time. That also means we’ve been creating amiibo training guides and content for six whole years — which is longer than anybody else! We’ve got no plans of stopping, either; as you may have noticed, we’re still updating our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate guides to this very day.
Here’s some additional information, then, kind of like a site update: the remaining guide updates will most likely be completed by the end of the year, and we also plan on making content covering Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl closer to its actual release date. We hope you look forward to it! We’d also like to thank you for sticking around to make Exion the number one amiibo training resource. We’ll keep working hard to uphold that title!
In Super Smash Bros. 4, simply uttering the name “Bayonetta” would send players running — unless you were in the competitive amiibo scene. She was a solid mid-tier in that game; not particularly dominating, but by no means bad. In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, however, she’s taken a turn for the worst. She’s dropped all the way down to the very bottom of our tier list’s lowest rankings, and to this day has only gotten one or two tournament wins ever. I’ve had faith in her ever since I joined the amiibo community, and I have put more time and effort into raising her FP than any of my others. Today, I’m going to detail my experience with the Bayonetta amiibo and explain why she is (unfortunately) one of the worst contenders in competitive Smash Ultimate tournaments.
