Welcome to the first iteration of Amiibo Nicknames! This week’s character is Lucas, who appeared in Mother 3. Out of every fighter playable in Super Smash Bros., Lucas is perhaps the most obscure. Mother 3 was never released outside of Japan, and it appears Nintendo has no plans to release an official localization.
Most amiibo trainers haven’t played Mother 3 – as a result, they’ve given their Lucas amiibo nicknames that have nothing to do with his character or origins. It’s time to change that: I’m an avid EarthBound fan, and have played through each of its entries several times over. I’ve prepared a list of potential Lucas nicknames, pulled straight from Mother 3 – and each one includes context! Do note that there are spoilers inside.
