Amiibo Cards Super Smash Bros Koopalings

An amiibo is an official Nintendo device which allows players to unlock various in-game content or modes relating to the character. amiibo were first introduced with Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U (in which Daisy was not playable). An amiibo depicts various Nintendo characters in 3D, however amiibo cards exist, showing an image of the character instead. To use an amiibo, you must scan it on the lower screen of a New Nintendo 3DS, tap your amiibo on the squared space on the left of the Wii U gamepad or tap your amiibo on the right Joycon's joystick or on the top of the pro controller for the Nintendo Switch. amiibo can also be used with the original Nintendo 3DS models, but you’ll have to buy a specific wireless device, an amiibo reader.

Daisy amiibo

On June 14th 2016, Nintendo confirmed there will be a new wave of Super Mario amiibo. Seven new amiibo would be released, one of which being Princess Daisy. A Daisy amiibo was one of the main goals of the We Are Daisy group, and it is finally confirmed. Daisy along with the rest of the Wave 2 amiibo were released on November 4, 2016. However, Wario, Rosalina, Donkey Kong, and Boo were released in October 2016 in Europe.

The amiibo is based off Daisy's Mario Kart 7 artwork, which was later reused for Mario Party 10 and Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash. There are some small differences compared to the artwork though. Her dress opens straight down, while in the artwork her dress is more curved. This is due to the amiibo needing to stand upright without a stand. Daisy’s arms appear to be thicker on her amiibo in comparison to her artwork, while her dress frills appear to be thinner. Her face also seems to be slightly different from the artwork (but this is also the case for characters who need a high precision for their face, for example Princess Peach). Finally, the colors appear to be a little bit different: the yellow part is indeed a bit darker than the original one.

During the press conference of Mario Party: Star Rush, Nintendo announced that the design may be subject to change, as her amiibo has to be mass produced. One error that can be commonly spotted on the prototypes of her amiibo is the paint around the jewel, the collar and under the daisy shape of the gloves often leaking into the dress or skin. However, we now know that it depends on the amiibo. Some don't have problems.

Bill Trinen also commented that amiibo can take 10 months to a year to create, which could explain the long wait between Super Mario amiibo waves.

Mario Sports Superstars amiibo cards have been released alongside Mario Sports Superstars. Each character has five of these amiibo Cards, one for each of the five sports.

According to Nintendo's website, the amiibo cards grants access to powered up characters. However, as this is not technically a Daisy amiibo, compatibility is extremely limited

Daisy Smash amiibo

As a newcomer in the new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game, Daisy received her own Super Smash Bros Amiibo as Nintendo announced during E3 2018. It was revealed to us during Smash Direct on November 1, 2018 and is a part of the third Smash Ultimate amiibo wave which has been released on April 12, 2019. The compatibility is almost the same as the Super Mario series Daisy amiibo.

    These amiibo may have been planned for longer. On the website of Nintendo of Japan, there were images of the Donkey Kong, Wario and the Rosalina amiibo, only with a slightly different color (see image). This could indicate that Daisy's amiibo may also have been planned for longer.
  • The image on the right is also an official image of the new amiibo line. It is interesting to note that Daisy is standing in the center of all seven new amiibo.
  • Nintendo of America posted about Daisy's amiibo on Twitter on the 18th of June. The remarkable thing is that none of the other new amiibos were mentioned, not even in another post. This could mean Nintendo is acknowledging Daisy's popularity:
  • amiibo have been doing much better than Nintendo initally expected.
  • amiibo are often seen as collectible items by the fans, but this didn’t satisfy Nintendo because for them, amiibo are in priority a game complement, a way to extend the Nintendo experience.
  • amiibo are to date the most precise reproductions of Nintendo characters ever created.
  • amiibo, like the famous Pokemon cards, have a rarity, depending on the depicted character. Less popular characters, for example Wii Fit Trainer, rarely get restocked, and are often sold at high prices by scalpers. This makes it difficult for fans to find them.
  • In the United States, a man known as Mariotehplumber who hates Rosalina and other female characters, bought an entire stock of Super Smash Bros. Rosalina amiibo so that none of Rosalina's fans could get them. He also has bought many amiibo of other female characters and rarer characters.
  • In the United States and Canada, the Daisy amiibo along with the rest of the Wave 2 Super Mario amiibo were available for pre-order on Amazon the day they were revealed at E3 2016, and out of stock less than one week after.
  • Daisy is one of the only characters with an amiibo whose Super Mario Maker costume isn't unlocked by the amiibo. This may be due to Daisy's costume and event course being available before her amiibo was released, seeing as Wolf Link, Callie, and Marie can be unlocked through event courses or with their amiibo which were released around the same time.

Super smash bros amiibo cards

Congratulations! This has been chosen to be a Featured Article, making it an article of interest.

This article is about the amiibo figures appearance on Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch systems. For other uses, see Figure Player.

amiibo (アミーボ, amiibo) is a line of Nintendo figures designed for use with the Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch systems. Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate have been shown to be compatible with these figurines.

A player of either game can place an amiibo figurine on the bottom left side of the Wii U GamePad, and the amiibo will be able to fight against the player or assist them in battles. For Nintendo 3DS use, the player is able to buy an add-on to use amiibo called the "Nintendo 3DS NFC Reader Writer" (or simply place them on the touch screen of the New Nintendo 3DS family). For Nintendo Switch use, the player has to place the amiibo figurine on the bottom side of Joy-Con R or at the top center of Pro Controller.


Figure Players have often been compared to CPUs, as they both use AI. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, players can train the figurines to be able to learn new fighting tactics. The amiibo character will adapt to your play-style learning how to play against you. For example, if you always taunt after landing a KO, your amiibo can learn to do the same; or if you always try to Meteor Smash opponents using risky tactics, the amiibo will learn to do the same, like to fake self-destructing. Your amiibo will do it (Or maybe not). In order words, the better the player, the better the amiibo will become. FPs at around level 40 or above by default stop taunting because they take out certain parts to make room for other techniques that could be learned. amiibo can still learn from you if you fight alongside it in Team Battles.

They are also programmed to detect and use items depending on your usage patterns. For example, if you always play matches without items and introduce items to them, they will be "confused" and "unaware" on how to use them.

The amiibo will use the moveset you've chosen for him/her at the start, and their stats will increase as they grow in level, meaning as they level up they'll take less damage/knockback and be able to deal more damage to you. As well as increased reaction time meaning they'll; attack, shield, dodge, and air-dodge faster. However, you are able to further change their stats by "feeding" them items. This will change their base stats depending on what the piece of equipment is. The maximum level an amiibo can reach is 50.

amiibo interaction with a game may be either "Read/Write" or "Read Only". "Read/Write" will save certain game data directly to the amiibo figure; however, each amiibo can only hold data from one such game at a time. If using the same amiibo, new data from another "Read/Write" game can only be saved by deleting the data from the previous "Read/Write" game. Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are "Read/Write" games.

"Read Only" games scan the amiibo to unlock additional in-game content and features, but do not save data to them. They can, therefore, be used repeatedly and on multiple "Read Only" games without affecting the amiibo saved data. Mario Kart 8 and Hyrule Warriors are "Read Only" games. Mario Party 10 has both "Read/Write" and "Read Only" capability, depending on which amiibo are used.

Toys-to-life platform by Nintendo

Amiibo[a] (officially stylized as amiibo; plural: Amiibo[1]) is a toys-to-life platform by Nintendo, which was launched in November 2014. It consists of a wireless communications and storage protocol for connecting figurines to the Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo Switchvideo game consoles. These figurines are similar in form and functionality to that of the Skylanders, Disney Infinity and Lego Dimensions series of toys-to-life platforms. The Amiibo platform was preannounced to potentially accommodate any form of toy, specifically including general plans for future card games.[2][3] These toys use near field communication (NFC) to interact with supported video game software, potentially allowing data to be transferred in and out of games and across multiple platforms.

Amiibo functionality can be used directly with the Nintendo Switch, Wii U, and New Nintendo 3DS consoles by using built-in NFC readers. In addition, the rest of the 3DS hardware line can use an official NFC adapter. By September 2016, Nintendo reported that 39 million Amiibo toys had been sold, along with more than 30 million Amiibo cards.[4]



They came up with the name in Japan, and the ‘amii’ portion comes from a little something in Japanese that conveys the sentiment of friend, of playing with your friend. That’s what they’re really trying to convey with it. I think for us it sounds a little like amigo. That’s not the origin of the name, but it conveys the intent.

— Bill Trinen, translator at Nintendo[5]

Toys for Bob and its parent company Activision had offered an opportunity for Nintendo to be a partner in a new video game franchise known as Skylanders, which would use RFID-equipped character figurines and a special reader component to interact with the game itself, and could store data on the figurine itself such as the corresponding character's statistics. While Nintendo passed on the exclusivity deal, the franchise itself quickly became one of Activision's most successful franchises upon its launch as a spin-off of the Spyro the Dragon series, and also resulted in competition from Disney Interactive Studios, who released a game with a similar concept known as Disney Infinity in 2013.[6][7]

In March 2013, long predating Amiibo, Nintendo unveiled Pokémon Rumble U, the first game for the Wii U to use the Wii U GamePad's near-field communications support to enable the use of its own interactive figurines.[8] During an investors' meeting in May 2014, Nintendo presented a prototype of a more comprehensive figurine platform for its 3DS and Wii U consoles, which was designed so that the figurines could be used across multiple games. The new system was codenamed NFP, standing for either "Nintendo Figurine Platform" or "NFC Featured Platform", and was slated to be officially unveiled during E3.[9]

On June 10, 2014 during E3 2014, Nintendo officially announced the Amiibo platform, and that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U would be among the first games to provide features integrating with Amiibo figurines.[10]

In a corporate policy event after the launch of the Amiibo platform, Nintendo executive Shigeru Miyamoto addressed the platform's future by stating that the company was "now moving forward with projects that make use of NFC in a variety of unique ways. Nintendo is known as a video game company, but in fact, it is also a toy company."[11][3]


Super Smash Bros. Amiibo toys were first released in North America on November 21, 2014, in Europe on November 28, 2014, and in Japan on December 6, 2014, along with the release of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.[12][13][14]

The Super Mario series, featuring Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Bowser, and Toad, arrived on March 20, 2015 for both regions.[15]

In 2015, Nintendo began to extend the Amiibo line into new form factors; on February 27, 2015, Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata revealed that the company had plans to release Amiibo-enabled trading cards. On April 1, 2015, Nintendo unveiled Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, a spin-off in the Animal Crossing series that utilizes cards. Nintendo also unveiled Amiibo yarn plushies as a tie-in for Yoshi's Woolly World.[16][17][18]

During the E3 2015 Nintendo Direct on June 16, 2015, Activision revealed Bowser and Donkey Kong Amiibo (Hammer Slam Bowser and Turbo Charge Donkey Kong) and vehicles for use in Skylanders: SuperChargers. These toys are compatible with either the Skylanders games or Amiibo-compatible games by means of a mode switch on their bases. They will work across all Nintendo platform versions of Skylanders: SuperChargers.[19][20] The Amiibo are also compatible with all Nintendo platform versions of Skylanders: Imaginators.

On August 27, 2015, an Amiibo toy of the titular character from the indie video gameShovel Knight was unveiled, which will unlock content exclusive to the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game and its future installments. It is the first Amiibo toy of a non-Nintendo character that is not associated with a first-party title; previous Amiibo toys of third-party characters were associated with Super Smash Bros.[21] Additionally, production and distribution of the figurine will be overseen by the game's publisher, Yacht Club Games, rather than Nintendo (except in Japan where the latter is the publisher), although it will still officially be marketed by Nintendo as part of the Amiibo line as a form of brand licensing. Explaining the arrangement, a Nintendo representative stated that "we were like, what's one thing that Nintendo could do that nobody [else] could ever do?"[22]

The Amiibo line for The Legend of Zelda initially began solely with the Wolf Link figurine, which is mainly used in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD and later Breath of the Wild. It expanded with the 30th Anniversary collection (8-bit Link, Ocarina of Time Link, The Wind Waker Link, and The Wind Waker Zelda), and the Breath of the Wild collection (Archer Link, Rider Link, Zelda, Bokoblin, Mipha, Daruk, Revali, Urbosa and the Guardian figurine). At E3 2017, Nintendo unveiled several new Amiibo figurines, including wedding-themed Mario, Peach and Bowser figurines which coincided with the launch of the Nintendo Switch game Super Mario Odyssey, as well as figurines of Chrom and Tiki from the Fire Emblem series to tie in with the release of Fire Emblem Warriors on Switch and New 3DS systems. Two Metroid-themed Amiibo figures released alongside the 3DS remake of Metroid II, Metroid: Samus Returns, and figurines released later based around the four Champions in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Third-party software developer Bethesda Softworks announced that existing Zelda figurines would be compatible with the Nintendo Switch port of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, allowing players to obtain select Zelda items and clothing for their Dragonborn, including the Master Sword, Hylian Shield and the Champion's Tunic from Breath of the Wild.

Collectibility and supply issues[edit]

Upon initial launch, the Amiibo line quickly spiked in popularity, with preorders selling out before the products became available to the public. While Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata stated that Amiibo will be kept in stock, he also explained that some will be "limited-time offers which will cede their positions to new ones once they are sold out".[30] The rarity of certain Amiibo figurines influenced the prices held by online retailers and auctions, of which most can be seen offering select items at prices above the retail price. In Nintendo's 3rd Quarter Financial Results Briefing for the Fiscal Year Ending March 2015, Satoru Iwata expressed surprise at such online auctions that offered "premium prices" of sold out Amiibo toys.[31] A number of first-wave Amiibo toys with manufacturing defects were discovered and sold for notably high prices, such as a Samus figurine with cannons on both arms instead of one being sold on eBay for US$2,500, and a defect of Princess Peach with missing legs being sold for US$25,100.[32][33][34]

On April 2, 2015, when preorders were being taken for the May 29 release of the Super Smash Bros. series Wave 4 and the Splatoon series, the US preorder process crashed both GameStop's website and in-store register system.[35] Nintendo acknowledged these issues in early May 2015.[36][37]Amazon forwent the entire preorder process for those waves; it instead blocked out specific time intervals on their release date during which the non-retailer exclusive Amiibo and the Super Mario series Silver Mario Amiibo were available.[38] The retailer continued this practice with its exclusive release of the Palutena Amiibo as well as those released on September 11, 2015.[39][40]

In May 2015 in the UK, a truck was stolen that contained preorders of the special edition of Splatoon, which included a rare Squid Inkling Amiibo as a preorder bonus: the only way to obtain the figure in the UK. As a result, Nintendo lacked the stock to supply the Squid Inkling Amiibos to those who preordered, and offered Inkling Girl or Inkling Boy Amiibos instead alongside a standard edition with a £10 refund, or full refunds.[41][42][43][44][45][46][47][48]

In response to the lack of certain Amiibo toys in the United States, Satoru Iwata explained on February 17, 2015 that "an ongoing labor dispute on the west coast" has delayed the "discharge of cargo over the past six months", and is the cause of the absences of certain Amiibo toys intended to be delivered before its launch in November.[49] Following this announcement, rarer Amiibo toys such as Wii Fit Trainer, Meta Knight, and Ike have been receiving limited re-releases in North America.[50][51] For the US, the exclusive Best Buy release of the Dark Pit figurine, the retailer announced it would not take any preorders or online orders and the item would be limited to one per customer.[52] While some news sources such as Kotaku came out in favour of Best Buy's practice,[53] alternatively in response to this (and the difficulty of acquiring previous retailer-exclusives), others, such as Brian Altano, Jose Otero, and Peer Schneider of IGN's Nintendo Voice Chat podcast, have encouraged American collectors to import these hard-to-find items.[54]

Hardware support[edit]

The Wii U, New Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo Switch contain integrated NFC support, and are Amiibo-compatible. On Wii U, toys are scanned using an NFC reader contained within the Wii U GamePad. Amiibo support was formally introduced to the consoles' firmware between November and December 2014; these updates added an Amiibo menu to the system settings area, allowing users to scan, register, and erase data from toys. The Nintendo Switch similarly features an NFC reader in both the Joy-Con R and Pro Controller.[55][56][57][58][59]

A separate NFC reader accessory allows use of Amiibo on the original Nintendo 3DS, 3DS XL, and 2DS models; in Japan, released in "Summer 2015", and released alongside Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer in North America.[60] The New Nintendo 3DS, New 3DS XL, and New 2DS XL contain an integrated NFC reader utilizing the touch (bottom) screen.

Amiibo data communication[edit]

Supported games offer one of two kinds of Amiibo compatibility; the ability to access an Amiibo toy's NFC tag and store data, and read-only recognition. Each Amiibo toy largely corresponds to a specific game that can access its storage space, though some may have multiple games that can use it. However, each Amiibo toy can only store data from one compatible game at a time, meaning data must be deleted to use it with a different title. For example, a Mario Amiibo figurine containing data from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U must have the data for that game deleted to store data from Mario Party 10.[61] Many games offer compatibility with specific Amiibo toys on a read-only basis, allowing for additional content to be unlocked in that game. For example, using certain figurines with Mario Kart 8 or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe unlocks Mii costumes based on the corresponding character. Multiple variations of the same character offer the same compatibility, although special variations can unlock unique content with specific games.[62] Existing Wii U and 3DS games can receive updates for Amiibo functionality.[63] Due to their co-development effort on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, Bandai Namco Entertainment were the first third-party publishers to embrace the Amiibo concept in some of their own games.[64]

List of Amiibo[edit]

The following list features all known NFC items branded under Amiibo, originally produced in the form of character figurines as of 2014, then cards as of 2015, and other types in the future. Nintendo designed all Amiibo characters to be cross-compatible with all games that support specific Amiibo characters, regardless of whichever model line these characters belong to; for example, Mario figurines from both the Super Smash Bros. and Super Mario series have the same functionality.[65]Yoshi's line are soft dolls instead of hard plastic figurines.

There are currently 186 Amiibo figurines, 3 Amiibo card series, and 20 noted variants on this list.
