Welcome to the official amiibo tier list! This list is based solely on tournament results: the higher an amiibo is ranked, the more success it has seen in competitive play. Please note that the list is meant to represent the equipment metagame – over 90% of tournaments allow and encourage equipment, so it adheres to the most common ruleset.
To those unfamiliar with the amiibo metagame, this tier list may look strange. Diddy Kong is a weak character? Ganondorf and Bowser are actually good? It seems ridiculous at first, but the amiibo metagame is much different than the one competitive Smash players are used to. As mentioned before, this list is based on results from over 150 tournaments – and results don’t lie. The tier list is current as of April 25th, 2018.
