Hello, everybody! For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Blakers, a veteran amiibo trainer who has seven tournament wins! As you know (or if you don’t, I’m about to tell you), the amiibo for Cloud, Corrin, and Bayonetta were announced on the most recent Nintendo Direct! As somebody who’s wanted to train these characters very badly, I figured that since we still have over three months of waiting, I could write about them to prepare the community for their arrival. In this article, I will talk about where and when you can get these amiibo, give my personal speculations for how they should be trained, and place my bets on where they’ll end up in the metagame and the Tier List.

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

The following is an archived post from the Amiibo Dojo. It has been uploaded to the Exion Vault for referential purposes and retains its original publication date; some of the post’s links may not function currently or exist at all.

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?

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.

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!

Hey guys!
