Section 1: Amiibo Overview / Pros & Cons
Peach is an effective yet overlooked character. Although a rare sight in tournaments, she possesses a solid skill set packed with many useful tools. Her jab is fast and consists of two separate hits: the first hit can even follow up into a down tilt to forward smash combo. Speaking of smash attacks, Peach’s are quite good. For her forward smash, she uses a variety of different weapons, including a frying pan, a golf club, and a tennis racket. Each weapon has different properties, but all three are equally viable. Between her double jump, up special, and unique hover capability, Peach’s recovery is simply excellent. She also has a psuedo-counter in Toad, which can catch opponents off-guard when used strategically.
However, Peach suffers from several annoying flaws. Her AI tends to overuse its hover capability, trying it at inappropriate times and leaving itself vulnerable to attack. It may also spam its forward aerial if left unchecked. Finally, Peach herself is somewhat light, meaning that her in-game endurance is lacking.
Overall, Peach is a solid fighter capable of working wonders in the right hands. With her numerous advantages and only minor flaws, it’s difficult to understand why this character is so rare in tournaments. Regardless, training a champion Peach amiibo is possible: it’s up to you to give her the competitive representation she deserves.
Section 2: Recommended Equipment
Recommended Stats & Bonuses
For more information on equipment – including instructions on how to farm for custom parts – please read the amiibo equipment guide.
Before you begin training your amiibo, you must equip it with a viable setup of stats and bonuses. The following build has been extensively tested and proven effective:
+60 Attack / +60 Defense / 0 Speed
Recommended Custom Moves
- Heavy Vegetable: This is a custom move version of Peach’s down special. Hence its name, the vegetable Peach throws is heavier and takes longer to pull from the ground. Each projectile flies faster and deals more damage, but doesn’t travel as far.
Once your amiibo’s equipment setup is refined and ready to go, your training will officially begin! If you encountered a problem while feeding your amiibo, feel free to join Amiibo Dojo’s Discord server to ask for help.
Section 3: Training Your Amiibo
Amiibo training is a very specific task, and for the best possible result, you will need to approach it with caution. You can’t just go all-out and use combos and aerials: both of these are frowned upon in the competitive metagame. Instead, you should remain grounded at all times, punishing your amiibo for every aerial attack it uses against you.
To help your amiibo properly utilize its moveset, you will mirror match it from Level 1 all the way to Level 50. Playing timed matches on Ω-form stages is highly recommended.
- Moves to focus on: jab, forward tilt, down tilt, neutral special, side special, and down special. Peach has many useful tools at her disposal. As mentioned earlier, her jab hits twice and can link into a down tilt to forward smash combo. Peach’s neutral special, Toad, should be used frequently against telegraphed attacks, while Peach Bomber serves as a decent mid-ranged approach option. Down special is best used from afar – if you’re lucky, you might even pull up a Bob-omb or a Mr. Saturn!
- Main KO moves: forward smash and up smash. Peach’s forward smash cycles through three different weapons: a golf club, a frying pan, and a tennis racket. Be mindful of which weapon Peach will use when attacking with forward smash. Her golf club has increased range and diagonal knockback, her frying pan inflicts more damage, and her tennis racket launches enemies horizontally. Peach’s up smash is a useful aerial punish, and is most powerful when her body connects with the opponent.
- Moves to avoid: down smash. Peach’s down smash isn’t bad, but it does lack range and knockback: to this end, her forward and up smashes are far superior. Avoid using down smash during training so that your amiibo prioritizes more effective moves.
When your amiibo finally reaches Level 50, its training will truly begin. Just like a real player, amiibo need match experience and practice against different characters. For more information on training your amiibo past Level 50, follow this link.
