Amiibo Training Guide: Wii Fit Trainer (Wii U & 3DS)

Welcome to Cloud Nine’s Wii Fit Trainer amiibo training guide! To start off, thank you for taking the time to visit: your support is very much appreciated. Huge thanks to Trainer Blue for sharing his knowledge of Wii Fit Trainer and for contributing to the completion of the guide!

This female trainer helps you in the Wii Fit series, instructing you during fitness exercises. She often advises you to maintain your center-of-balance, helping you tone up and burn calories. Recently, she has also shown herself as a capable close-quarters fighter.

This guide is up-to-date as of Version 1.1.7 of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

Section 1: Amiibo Overview / Pros & Cons

Amiibo Overview

Wii Fit Trainer is a difficult character to play, and a difficult amiibo to train. Her moveset is strange and unorthodox – specifically, the unusual hitbox placement on her attacks makes them tough to land. Even so, Wii Fit Trainer has several distinct advantages: her recovery potential is high, and she has a solid set of tilts as well as a decent neutral attack.

However, Wii Fit Trainer suffers from several flaws. As mentioned before, her attacks have strange hitboxes, and as a result, they lack range. As well as having poor range, Wii Fit Trainer’s smash attacks are also quite weak, which severely limits their usefulness. Finally, Wii Fit Trainer’s AI tends to overuse uncharged Sun Salutations, and underuses its down special, Deep Breathing.

The Verdict

Overall, there really is not much to say about Wii Fit Trainer. As an amiibo, she is just about average, and it takes an experienced trainer to push this character any further.

Section 2: Recommended Equipment

Wii Fit Trainer – Recommended Stats & Bonuses

For more information on equipment, including instructions on how to farm for custom parts, please read the amiibo equipment guide.

Before you begin training your amiibo, you must equip it with a viable setup of stats and bonuses. The following build has been extensively tested and proven effective:

+70 Attack / +70 Defense / -20 Speed

  • Sweeping Sun Salutation: The energy ball travels slower, hits multiple times, and has a windbox while charging. Wii Fit Trainer also recovers more health when this attack is fully charged.

Once your amiibo’s equipment setup is refined and ready to go, your training will officially begin! If you ran into some sort of problem while feeding your amiibo, feel free to jump into Cloud Nine’s Discord server to ask a question.

Section 3: Leveling Up Your Amiibo

Amiibo training is a very specific task, and for the best possible results, you will need to go about it very carefully. You can’t just go all-out and use combos and aerials: both of these are frowned upon in the amiibo metagame. Instead, you should remain grounded at all times, punishing your amiibo for every aerial move it uses against you.

To help your amiibo properly utilize its moveset, you will mirror match it from Level 1 all the way to Level 50. Playing timed matches on Ω-form stages is highly recommended.

Wii Fit Trainer Training Tips

  • Primary damage-racking moves: jab, forward tilt, and down tilt. Wii Fit Trainer’s neutral attack hits three times, and the third hit buries opponents. This can lead into a forward tilt or a down tilt – both of which pack respectable power.
  • Primary KO moves: forward smash, up smash, and down smash. Wii Fit Trainer’s smash attacks are slow and lack range, but they are her only KO options. Forward smash is generally the most reliable of the three – use this move with decisive timing for best effect.
  • Moves to avoid: neutral special and side special. Wii Fit Trainer should avoid using her neutral special. It is difficult to find a good opportunity to fully charge the move, and firing it uncharged deals negligible damage. Header also brings Wii Fit Trainer very little benefit.

When your amiibo finally reaches Level 50, its training will truly begin. Just like a real player, amiibo need match experience and practice against different characters.

Section 4: Post-Level 50 Training

Now that your amiibo has reached Level 50, its training will become a bit more involved. Defense and counterattacks are important to your amiibo’s success, but its match experience is even more important. Your amiibo will need to be exposed to as many fighters, stages, and situations as possible.

Your Amiibo’s Match Experience

Every character in the Super Smash Bros. roster has their own unique playstyle and a variety of attacks to use. Ideally, your amiibo will learn to play against all 58 fighters. Training guides for every amiibo are now available: so if any of yours are untrained, raise them with their own personalized character guide. You can then pit the two amiibo against each other in a battle, and they’ll both become stronger.

Mirror Matches, Defense, & Counterattacks

As your amiibo’s knowledge of other fighters grows, its grasp on its own moveset slowly fades away. More specifically, your amiibo’s fighting skills will wear down over time. Match experience is great, but too much of it at once is a bad thing. Mirror matching your amiibo between battles against other characters is a great way to refresh its skills while retaining its match experience. In the previous section was a list of tips that specifically applied to your amiibo’s character – refer back to that list if necessary. Once again, be sure to stay grounded and to play defensively.

If your amiibo begins acting aggressively during battles or starts to use too many aerial attacks, there is a perfect solution: the defensive training session. In just a few minutes, you can retrain your amiibo to dodge, perfect shield, and counterattack with impeccable speed and timing. To keep your amiibo fresh and at its best, rotate both mirror matches and defensive training sessions as needed.
