Eleven Fire Emblem series amiibo are currently available for purchase.

Fire Emblem series

With the release of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia the Fire Emblem series got its own amiibo line. The first two Fire Emblem characters featured were Echoes: Shadows of Valentia's protagonists, Alm and Celica. Fire Emblem line amiibo are distinguished visually from the Super Smash Bros. line of amiibo by the appearance of the base: Fire Emblem series amiibo feature a brick pattern on the base instead of the Super Smash Bros. logo.

Uses for the Fire Emblem amiibo

Super Smash Bros. series

SSB.png This article or section is a short summary of Figure Player.
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 amiibo of all six Fire Emblem playable characters. 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 Marth, Ike, Robin or Lucina's 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. Other Fire Emblem characters are not compatible.

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] Other Fire Emblem character amiibo are not compatible.

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 and Corrin amiibo are compatible with both versions of the game, they only give a special costume for Yoshi in the 3DS port, and will give out a generic costume in the Wii U version (which is what the other Fire Emblem character amiibo will give in both versions).

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 compatible. In keeping with the 8-bit theme, all four of these costumes use sound effects from Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light. Other Fire Emblem character amiibo are not compatible.

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. Other Fire Emblem character amiibo give him a random ability.

Style Savvy: Fashion Forward

Ss ssff warrior skirt.jpg

In Style Savvy: Fashion Forward, the player can scan a Lucina amiibo[4] to summon a special customer to their boutique. This character will relate a tale similar to that of Lucina's time in her "Marth" disguise, and ask the player to design an outfit to match their skirt, which is based on a part of Lucina's outfit. If the player successfully designs an outfit to this character's liking, they will be rewarded with a copy of the Warrior Skirt to use in their own outfits.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

Main article: amiibo (skill)

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia utilizes Smash Bros. amiibo to summon Illusory Heroes (if a Fire Emblem character) or generic ghostly versions of classes (if another character) to aid the player for a single turn. The Alm and Celica amiibo have three functions: to access two dungeons, Duma's Ordeals and Mila's Ordeals respectively, via Mila's Turnwheel; to have Alm and Celica's stats written to their respective amiibo; and, if scanned during battle, to summon spectral versions of their respective characters to battle for one turn, with that character using the stats previously written to that amiibo. This is a combat art used by Alm and Celica which costs 10 HP.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Main article: amiibo Gazebo

Fire Emblem: Three Houses is compatible with any amiibo on a read-only basis through the amiibo Gazebo at the Garreg Mach Monastery. When one of these amiibo is scanned, a variety of items will spawn around the gazebo, which refresh every week. Scanning any Fire Emblem character amiibo will unlock an exclusive music track to play during auxiliary battles and also unlock a unique area, the Holy Tomb, which can be accessed during New Game +.

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.
