Most useless amiibo list

Ever since their original release, amiibo figures have been more popular as fancy little shelfwarmers than in-game content bonuses. Nintendo certainly acknowledges this, too – whereas characters like Mario work across multiple games, other, more specific characters only serve a single purpose. Today, we’re looking at the most useless amiibo ever released and what they do in their corresponding game. Do note, there are several Super Smash Bros. series amiibo whose only purpose is amiibo training. This compatibility is actually too useful for our purposes, so we’ll only be talking about useless amiibo that do even less than that.

rarest smash bros amiibo

With the Super Smash Bros. amiibo line now finishing with Sora, we’ve put together a list going over the top five rarest figures.

Nintendo has recently announced restocks of several Super Smash Bros. series amiibo figures – including Joker, Terry, and Banjo & Kazooie, who all lie among the rarest of these figurines (especially Joker). To add to this, Nintendo also restocked female Corrin last year, who was once considered the single rarest Super Smash Bros. amiibo. Given how much each individual character’s availability has changed, we’ve put together a list of Smash Bros. series amiibo figures who haven’t yet been restocked. It’s entirely possible that this list changes part way in the year depending on future restocks, so for now, keep in mind that this list is current as of February 2024.

With the Sora amiibo releasing yesterday, that wraps up all of the figures for Super Smash Bros. That line alone offers nearly 100 different products. There are also many other IPs and dedicated franchise with amiibo including Mario, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Animal Crossing, and more.

Aside from how many amiibo are out there, something that may surprise you is that it’s turning ten years old this year. It’ll be a decade of the figures as of November.

Since we’re coming up on a big milestone here, we wanted to take a moment to talk about amiibo. Which one is your favorite? Let us know in the comments, and feel free to share any other thoughts you have about amiibo as well.

amiibo training guide

With the release of the Sora amiibo on the horizon, we’ve put together an in-depth amiibo training guide for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that applies to every fighter in the game.

If you’re looking to raise a powerful amiibo to beat up your friends, we’ve got you covered. Before you start training a character, you’ll need to choose whether to give it Spirits or not. Spirits are character-augmenting equipment pieces that can boost Attack, Defense, and more. With a proper Spirit setup, you can turn an amiibo into a menace. That said, amiibo with Spirits are sometimes too powerful even for human opponents to beat. If you’d rather raise an amiibo that’s more fair to your friends, you can easily opt out of giving it Spirits altogether. Do note that once an amiibo has Spirits, they can’t be removed via natural means.

xenoblade chronicles 3 amiibo rewards

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 recently received what is assumed to be its final content update, and it adds support / rewards for the newly-released Noah and Mio amiibo figures. This means the game is now compatible with the Shulk, Pyra, Mythra, Noah, and Mio amiibo for a total of five different figurines with special compatibility. Unlike other games with amiibo-exclusive content, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 lets players obtain amiibo-exclusive gear without having to actually own the amiibo. Today, we’ll be going over each piece of exclusive gear (pictures included) plus how to get each one without using its corresponding amiibo figure.

Smash Bros. Ultimate Sora amiibo release date

December 6: On social media, Nintendo just announced the final release date for the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo. The figure arrives on February 16, 2024.

Sora marks the end of the Smash Bros. amiibo line. Once this figure is out, every character in the game will have received their own figure. Nintendo had already released a bunch when Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS were around and then continued things with Ultimate. Even all of the DLC fighters were given amiibo.

Joker, Banjo and Kazooie, Terry amiibo restock

Did you miss out on the Joker, Banjo and Kazooie, and Terry amiibo for the Super Smash Bros. line when they originally released? Well, there’s a bit of good news. A restock is happening and pre-orders have started to open at retailers.

If you’re looking to secure any of these amiibo, right now you can do so now at GameStop here. It’s unclear how long stock will be available, so we’d advise putting in an order while you can.

Just a few short days ago, Nintendo officially announced the release date for the new Sora amiibo. And according to a recent datamine of Splatoon 3, they’re not done with new figures just yet.

A thread from ashbinary_ on Twitter goes in-depth on Splatoon 3’s resource table, which contains references to content not currently available in-game. This includes new weapon kits, unreleased stages, and unreleased sets of gear. Two of those unreleased gear sets have the amiibo brand, which implies that Nintendo is planning to release at least two more new amiibo figures for Splatoon 3. That being said, the reference to these amiibo doesn’t necessarily guarantee their release – though it would make sense for the release of the Side Order DLC next year.

Splatoon 3 amiibo rewards

We’ve gone ahead and compiled a list of every Splatoon 3 amiibo figure and each of their rewards. If you’re looking to upgrade your Freshest Fits with some brand-new gear, you’ve come to the right place.

The Splatoon series has been entwined with amiibo figures ever since its original launch in 2015. This is true for Splatoon 3, too – to this day, it’s still receiving new figurines and compatibility. There are over twenty different Splatoon amiibo on the market right now, and each one yields a different set of exclusive gear that you can’t get anywhere else. 

rarest amiibo

Over the years, Nintendo has produced and released well over 150 unique amiibo figures – and may of them are now rare. At the time of writing, less than fifteen of those are readily available from retailers. Indeed, if you’re in the market for new figurines, you’ll often have no choice but to purchase them second-hand. That being said, a small chunk of those are a cut above the rest. Several amiibo figures received region-exclusive or incredibly limited prints and were never restocked again. Today, we’re going over the ten rarest amiibo that may never return to store shelves.
