Amiibo introduction.jpg

amiibo (Japanese: アミーボ amiibo) is Nintendo's series of interactive figurines designed to work with various games for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS consoles. amiibo work through near field communication, and are scanned by the consoles when running compatible games to use that amiibo's data to add various elements or effects to the game that, usually, would not otherwise be accessible.

Five Fire Emblem series amiibo are currently available for purchase, with one more scheduled for future release.

Uses for the Fire Emblem amiibo

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

This article or section is a short summary of Amiibo.
SmashWiki features a more in-depth article.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U was the first set of titles to be compatible with amiibo, with the first amiibo released being themed after it, and a wide range of amiibo are compatible with it, including all Fire Emblem-related amiibo. The games use amiibo to create personalized AI characters, dubbed "Figure Players", to participate in battles in the game. When first scanned, the player can name the amiibo and assign it a specific alternate costume and a set of special moves, then they can take the Figure Player into matches with them. Unlike other AIs in the game, Figure Players are "trainable" and are assigned a level which increases as they gain experience through fighting, reaching a maximum of level 50.

Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.

Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. is compatible with the Fire Emblem amiibo on a read-only basis. When one of these amiibo is scanned, the character joins the player's party and can be deployed in battles, coming with their own unique equipment and skills. Unlike an ordinary character, the Fire Emblem characters cannot be revived at checkpoints mid-battle should they be killed, and instead they must be scanned again after the battle to rejoin the party.[1] If all four Fire Emblem amiibo characters are deployed, the usual background music will be replaced with special Fire Emblem-related tracks. While the Roy amiibo is currently not compatible, it is unknown if compatibility will be added in the future. It is unknown if the Corrin amiibo will be compatible with Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. when it is released.

Fire Emblem Fates

Fire Emblem Fates is compatible with the Fire Emblem amiibo on a read-only basis. When one of these amiibo is scanned, it introduces the relevant character into the game as a powerful bonus unit who appears in the player's My Castle. The player can then challenge the character to a battle, and if they win, the character will join their army.[2][3] While the Roy amiibo is currently not compatible, it is unknown if compatibility will be added in the future. It is unknown if the Corrin amiibo will be compatible with Fates when it is released.

Yoshi's Woolly World

Yoshi's Woolly World is compatible with every known amiibo, including the Fire Emblem ones, on a read-only basis. Scanning an amiibo will unlock a wearable pattern for Yoshi based on that character; patterns based on Marth, Ike, Lucina and Robin are available. While the Roy amiibo is compatible, it does not give a special costume for Yoshi. It is unknown if the Corrin amiibo will be compatible with Yoshi's Woolly World it is released.

Super Mario Maker

Super Mario Maker is compatible with numerous amiibo on a read-only basis. When a compatible amiibo is scanned, the player can add them to a map they have designed in the form of a Mystery Mushroom power-up which transforms Mario into an 8-bit version of that character. The amiibo of Marth, Ike, Robin and Lucina are all compatible. In keeping with the 8-bit theme, all four of these costumes use sound effects from Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light. While the Roy amiibo is currently not compatible, it is unknown if compatibility will be added in the future. When the Corrin amiibo is released it is unknown if compatibility will be possible.

Kirby: Planet Robobot

In Kirby: Planet Robobot, Kirby can inhale amiibo which are scanned, giving him copy abilities relating to the character. The Marth, Ike, Lucina, and Roy amiibo give Kirby the Sword ability, while Robin gives him the Spark ability.

Style Savvy: Fashion Forward

In Style Savvy: Fashion Forward, scanning a Lucina amiibo will give a unique item.[4]

Trivia

  • When amiibo were first revealed at E3 2014, their trailer showed a title card (pictured above) illustrating their function with a variety of characters featured. Lucina was among them, which was the first hint that she would become playable in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.
  • The Ike and Roy amiibo are the only official figurines ever released as merchandise for any of the Tellius and Elibe games.
