The Amiibo Dojo is moving!

Hey guys! It’s really been a long time since I’ve done anything constructive here on this site. Unfortunately, this is my final post here, for real. I’ll never post another message here at the Amiibo Dojo, because I’m going to delete it very soon. The reason is because we’re moving to a new website! It’s currently very much a work in progress, but the new site is going to be called Cloud Nine. Here are some brand-new features this site will have that you can get excited about:

  • Updated training guides for every amiibo
  • In addition to “competitive” training guides, which focus on equipment, there will be new “casual” training guides for each character that focus on vanilla amiibo instead
  • A list of upcoming amiibo tournaments that you can enter
  • Updated amiibo tier list
  • A Discord channel associated with the site, which you can actually access right now by following this link
  • Brand-new guides on games such as the Pokémon and Animal Crossing series
  • Integration with the Cloud Nine Forums
  • New content every day
  • And more!

It’s going to be a while before Cloud Nine is ready to rock and roll, but for now, we have new training guides on Ness, Zelda, Luigi, Pac-Man, and Ryu. There are both equipment and vanilla guides available for each of these characters. I hope to see you there – eventually, the Amiibo Dojo will be deleted, and its URL will redirect to Cloud Nine. If you have any questions, or just want to stop by for a while, enter the Discord server.

(Poll) Critical Hits & Explosive Perfect Shield: To Ban or Not to Ban?

Among the most controversial subjects in the amiibo metagame right now are the Critical-hit capability and Explosive perfect shield bonus effects. In fact, they’ve always been controversial. They’re by far and away the best amiibo bonus effects in the entire game, and tournament results reflect that – characters that come out on top almost always have them equipped. So then, there’s a question to be had, then. Should we keep these bonus effects? Or get rid of them entirely?

Amiibo Dojo: April Remodel

Hey guys, it’s been a long time, but I think I’m finally ready to start doing some real work on this site again. Can you believe the Amiibo Dojo is the only training site left on the internet? Yeah, the community suffered from quite the activity drop, but now, it’s time for us to swoop in and restore amiibo training to its former glory. I’m planning on rebooting this entire site, and I’ll share some of my ideas with you right now.

Now Available: Luigi & Zelda Guides 2.0

It’s been four months. Four. Months. But now, the Amiibo Dojo finally, finally has some new content. This time around, we’ve got brand-new Luigi and Zelda amiibo training guides, courtesy of Arklaine, our resident expert on the two characters. These two guides were formerly horribly outdated, so a fresh coat of paint was much needed.

To take a look at the Luigi guide, click here. For Zelda, follow this link instead. Thanks for your patience! Soon enough, we’ll have another fresh batch of training guides ready to feast on, so until then!

The Amiibo Dojo is back in action

Hey guys, it’s been a long time, hasn’t it? I’ve been getting a lot of emails lately despite my inactivity. It’s obvious that there are still many of you out there who are interested in training amiibo, so I’ve decided that it’s time to get the ball rolling again. Without the Amiibo Dojo around, the metagame’s gone silent, with very few tournaments and active trainers remaining. Hopefully, when things start picking up again here, the competitive scene can start to reform itself.

In this post, I’m going to be talking about the changes you can expect to see on the site over the next few weeks. Even though the concept of amiibo is almost three years old, we’ve got a lot planned for you guys. Hope you enjoy!

Now Available: Duck Hunt Guide 2.0

Hey guys, it’s been quite a while, hasn’t it? In fact, it’s been a little under a month since I last said anything. It’s been tough adjusting to school (which I haven’t been to in years), but the desire to train amiibo and write guides is slowly but surely coming back to me. Today, I have a new guide brought to you by Nickural, a member over at the forums. You could consider him our resident Duck Hunt expert, and with his help, the Amiibo Dojo has whipped up a brand-new guide update. It’s good to be back, guys.

If you’re up to the challenge of training this character, click here to read the new guide. Best of luck!


Now Available: Donkey Kong Guide 2.0

Hey guys! I’m back with yet another Amiibo Dojo First Anniversary Edition guide, this time on Donkey Kong! His guide wasn’t horribly outdated, per se, the problem was that it still implied that he was a bad character! Recent developments have determined Donkey Kong to be a pretty good amiibo, thanks to the efforts of a few specific trainers, and this new guide reflects this!

P.S. The amiibo tier list has been updated as well, so if you’re interested in seeing how characters are ranked, check that out too.
