Most of the first wave of amiibo for Super Smash Bros. 4, as seen at E3 2014.

amiibo (アミーボ, amiibo) are a line of interactive figurines available for usage with the Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo Switch[1] systems. By scanning an amiibo with near field communication technology, players can receive various effects in games. For the Wii U, amiibo are scanned using the Wii U GamePad. The New Nintendo 3DS models are also natively compatible with amiibo, while older 3DS models require an NFC adapter to use the figurines.[2] While the concept of figurines using NFC technology to interact with the Wii U was previously explored with Pokémon Rumble U, Super Smash Bros. 4 was the first game to feature the amiibo branding, acting as the debut and flagship title for the line.

As of September 2016, Nintendo reports that 39 million amiibo figurines have been sold, along with 30.6 million amiibo cards.[3]

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

The early version of the amiibo menu screen, in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, with Mario's stats being modified.

Super Smash Bros. 4 supports the use of amiibo, with its series of figurines representing the various characters available for play in the games. All playable characters are represented. Some alternate costumes, such as male and female Corrin, have separate amiibo available. Others, such as Alph for Olimar, do not. amiibo figurines are not required to unlock any characters or other features in the games, and they are completely optional for playing both versions.[4] amiibo can also be used on any copy of the game (even if the character has not been unlocked or downloaded), and the character on the amiibo is tied to the figurine, allowing for players to use its customized moveset and fighting style wherever they desire.

amiibo, when scanned by the console, allow the character represented by the figurines to be used in-game as a customized CPU opponent. Any amiibo figure corresponding to a Smash character may be used, not just the ones released in the Super Smash Bros. amiibo series listed below. The in-game character can be modified by players with character customization options. Unlike normal fighters, amiibo fighters' stats are modified by "feeding" them equipment, including equipment the character cannot normally use; for example, an amiibo Mario can be given Hammer equipment, which would normally be impossible. There is a limit to how many times the amiibo can be fed before battling, however, and any equipment that's given to an amiibo is permanently lost. An amiibo can also "learn" up to three bonus effects from the equipment they are given. By default, the amiibo's stat total is capped at 120. As with other player-designed custom sets for characters, amiibo can be assigned a name and a specific alternate costume as well.

After this, they can be used as a specialized computer player, with the tag "FP" (Figure Player) above them. Figure Players start at level 1 like regular CPU players, but as they fight more often, they can continue to level up, to a cap of 50. As they gain levels, amiibo can potentially "learn" techniques from other characters: if a player frequently uses long-ranged, camping techniques, then the amiibo will also begin to emulate this behavior. This learning continues even after the 50 level cap is reached. In addition, an amiibo can gain improved fighting statistics, such as improved damage, knockback, and reaction times, the higher its level is. Finally, higher-leveled amiibo can adapt to individual matches faster than lower-leveled amiibo; if an opponent takes on an aggressive, rush-down style against an amiibo in one match, for instance, it will begin to make more use of defensive techniques like spot dodges and rolls. However, even high-level amiibo may have their flaws on complex stages, like walking back and forth before fighting on stages like Gaur Plain.

amiibo also gain gold and other items while fighting, which are retrieved when checking them in the amiibo menu. Aside from gold, players may also receive custom parts or trophies. The longer the amiibo has fought, the more presents and gold are received. These items can be retrieved when the amiibo is scanned on its owner's console under the amiibo menu. While Super Smash Bros. for Wii U natively supports amiibo, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS was unable to do so at launch. Version 1.0.5, released on February 9th, 2015, added support for scanning amiibo if the game is played on a New Nintendo 3DS or New Nintendo 2DS, while version 1.0.8, released on June 14th, 2015, added support for an external NFC reader/writer accessory, enabling support for earlier 3DS and 2DS models. The user must have one of these pieces of hardware to use amiibo with the 3DS version.

Owing to their ability to be "trained" and used on other consoles, amiibo tournaments have become a minor side-event at some Smash 4 tournaments.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Incomplete.png

Amiibo compatibility returns in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. All amiibo figures compatible with Super Smash Bros. 4 are compatible with Ultimate, as well as figures for newcomers and other veterans who were not playable in SSB4. amiibo data from SSB4 can be transferred to Ultimate, although high level FPs will level down to a set level (for example, a level 50 FP would level down to level 12). When transferred, the amiibo data will no longer work in SSB4. The player can also have the option to start from scratch.

Figure Fighters can inherit Spirits and gain their effects but they will be permanently consumed. The amiibo will also gain the spirit type, and its status will always be active regardless of whether the player has spirits on or off in the rules. Each amiibo can inherit up to 3 of the support spirits' skills.

A new mechanic in which amiibos can have personality traits is in Ultimate, A table showing all of said traits is shown below.

  • Blue: Defensive Style
  • Red: Offensive Style
Amiibo personality traits
Trait Description
Normal The default, all-round amiibo. This is the trait that all amiibo start with. It balances aggressive and defensive options evenly. Virtually all amiibo lose this trait after levelling up.
Cautious These amiibo will be more defensive and stable in their choices. They will very rarely take risks and go for gimps.
Realistic An extreme version of Cautious, these amiibo will be even more defensive and won't edgeguard without major hesitation.
Unflappable As the name suggests, this amiibo is incredibly defensive. Amiibo are typically incredible at parries and shields even when nothing is happening.
Light Favouring the air, these amiibo go for short and quick combos to rack up damage quickly.
Quick Similar to the Light trait, but prefers longer combos closer to the ground. These amiibo also often dash-dance and foxtrot when not attacking or defending.
Lightning Fast These amiibo are the fastest, choosing to approach opponents with dash-dances and foxtrots before attacking with several combos.
Enthusiastic Always on the offensive, amiibo with this trait will often take risks and use many smash attacks to rack up damage.
Aggressive Very similar to Enthusiastic, but the amiibo will go for combos that end in a strong attack to finish off.
Offensive Shares virtually all traits with Aggressive, although amiibo may attempt to gimp much more often.
Reckless Very rarely shields or defends. Amiibo will always attempt to deal damage to their opponent, even if that means receiving a lot of damage too.
Thrill-Seeker Will go off the stage to attempt to gimp as a main option. Usually the amiibo will unintentionally SD.
Daredevil Common to Thrill-Seeker, amiibo with this trait will use incredibly risky options most of the time, possibly even using Sacrificial KOs.
Versatile Not much is known about this trait, although it seems as though the amiibo can adapt during the match.
Tricky These amiibo will go for punishes and move around the stage a lot.
Technician Not much is known about this trait. It seems to be a variant of Tricky, but it uses projectiles much more liberally.
Show-Off These amiibo jump off the stage and go for spikes. They are one of the more risky traits.
Flashy Very aggressive; going for gimps, aerials and taunting even half way through a battle.
Entertainer Not much is known about this trait. Amiibo with this trait are thought to take more risks.
Cool Similar to the Normal trait, but generally more defensive.
Logical A very projectile-oriented and defensive style. Usually, if the amiibo has the choice to gimp or recover, the amiibo will recover.
Sly Not much is known about this trait. Similar to Logical, but with more projectile use.
Laid Back Very similar to Normal, but has a more slow way of moving around the stage.
Wild Not much is known about this trait. Seems to be very aggressive.
Lively Not much is known about this trait. Seems to be identical to Wild.

[5]

Additionally, the ability for an amiibo to learn and gain experience during battle can now be enabled or disabled on the amiibo menu, essentially freezing the AI. Figure Players can also be used in the game's Training Mode in place of the CPU, though they do not gain experience.

amiibo for characters from other series who are not playable in the game will grant an award, either coins, spirit points, or spirits based on the character used. However, only one reward will be granted per figure, thus making the amiibo unusable indefinitely.

Starting in 3.1.0, Figure Players can also be used online in Battle Arenas, as well as be sent on a journey, where they battle other Figure Players to gain experience.

Sales[edit]

Over 710,000 amiibo from Wave 1 were sold prior to the introduction of Wave 2, with Nintendo also stating that sales were approximately equal to those of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.[10] amiibo of Link were said to be the most popular, with Mario and Pikachu being the second and third most popular, respectively. At the end of 2014, it was announced that amiibo had outsold Super Smash Bros. for Wii U by a factor of at least two to one, with over 2.6 million figurines being sold [11]; a later quarterly report from Nintendo claimed that over 5.7 million amiibo were shipped worldwide.

Demand for some amiibo far exceeded supply, leading to supply shortages. Pre-orders for Rosalina & Luma broke sales records for Target, with the figurines selling out in only 35 minutes.[12] amiibo from wave 4 caused such huge demand that the web servers for GameStop crashed when pre-orders became available[13]. GameStop also sold out of pre-orders for all Wave 4 amiibo in less than five hours.[14]

Trivia[edit]

  • Originally at launch, Shulk's amiibo was exclusive to GameStop in North America, the same store his game, Xenoblade Chronicles, was exclusive to in its North American release.
  • The word "new" in the New Nintendo 3DS logo is stylized similarly to the amiibo logo.
    • The font itself is the Bauhaus 93 font, which is also used in many of the games in the Super Mario Bros. series.
  • The R.O.B., Cloud, Corrin, and Bayonetta amiibo are currently the only amiibo to have different versions in the Smash line.
    • The R.O.B. amiibo is the only amiibo with multiple versions featuring the same pose.
    • The Cloud and Bayonetta amiibo are the only amiibo with multiple versions featuring different costumes.
    • The Corrin amiibo is the only amiibo to have male and female versions.
  • Mr. Game & Watch's amiibo comes with multiple unique poses that can replace the original pose. One is based on his official SSB4 artwork, as are other amiibo; others feature his parachute from Fire, getting a 9 using Judge, and a bell-ringing pose resembling his side taunt and artwork pose from Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
    • Amongst his four poses, the pose depicting his number 9 Judge is the only pose that was never used as an in-game trophy pose for any game in the series.
  • Mewtwo's amiibo released in Europe on October 23rd, 2015, one year to the day after it was confirmed to be a downloadable character during the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U: 50-Fact Extravaganza.
  • Since Pokémon Rumble U can use anything with NFC technology to briefly summon a random helper Pokémon, it incidentally supports all amiibo.
  • If the player feeds an amiibo equipment, and then exits the amiibo menus without saving the changes to the amiibo, that equipment will disappear anyway. The only way to get it back is to quit the game without letting the game save.
  • Isabelle, Inkling, Daisy, Chrom and Young Link are the only playable characters with amiibo released before their respective Super Smash Bros. series amiibo; as such, they have amiibo usable in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that predate the release of their actual Smash amiibo.
  • Mega Man is the only third party fighter to have an amiibo outside the Super Smash Bros. series.
  • Pikachu's Detective Pikachu amiibo is not compatible with Smash 4, and as such is the only amiibo figure to depict a Smash character to not have any functionality in Smash.
    • However, Detective Pikachu is a spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and the Detective Pikachu amiibo does grant this spirit in-game.
    • amiibo cards are also not compatible with Smash 4, so while Mewtwo, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Yoshi, and all Mario series characters except Dr. Mario have cards, they will not work.
  • If Charizard's amiibo is scanned in Ultimate, it will count as the Pokémon Trainer, but the default Pokémon will be Charizard.
  • amiibo that show characters in an alternate costume will have their Figure Player default to that costume. This includes the "Player 2" versions of Smash Bros amiibo, but also amiibo from other lines such as Inkling Boy, Isabelle in her winter jacket, and Mario in his wedding outfit. Ike's amiibo, despite representing his default costume in Super Smash Bros. 4, defaults to his alternate costume in Ultimate; as such, there is no Ike amiibo that defaults to his default costume.
  • Link, Samus and Peach do not have amiibo based on their Ultimate renders, but have non-Smash amiibo based on the renders used for their Fighter Spirits.
    • Link is the only character who does not have a Smash amiibo based on his Ultimate design, but who has a non-Smash amiibo (from the The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild line) that represents the design and incarnation used for him in Ultimate.
    • Due to their relative lack of design changes from SSB4 to Ultimate, Samus and Peach have amiibo that can be said to represent both their Ultimate in-game designs (albeit in different poses) and their Fighter Spirits.
  • Timmy and Tommy is the only master spirit which can be obtained via amiibo.
  • Some Ultimate-era reprints of SSB4 amiibo, such as Samus, Bowser and Mewtwo, have more saturated colors to possibly better match their Ultimate designs.
  • Dr. Mario, Bowser Jr., and Piranha Plant are the only playable characters in the Mario series to not have an amiibo in the Mario amiibo series.
    • If sub-universes also count (Donkey Kong, Yoshi, Wario), King K. Rool would also apply.
    • In Mario Party Star Rush, Bowser Jr has a model of a Mario amiibo series in Mario Shuffle mode when being played as. Though no physical amiibo for it has released.
