Amiibo Training Guide: Zelda (Wii U & 3DS)

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

Zelda is the princess of Hyrule and the namesake of The Legend of Zelda games. Her appearance may change, but she always plays an important role. She knows much about the Triforce; in fact, the only person who likely knows more about Triforce lore is Ganondorf himself, whom Zelda evaded in Ocarina of Time by transforming into her alter ego, Sheik.

Defensive Training Session for Amiibo

Defense is by far and away the most important aspect of an amiibo’s success. With proper training, an amiibo can develop nearly perfect reaction skills. However, as your amiibo battles opponents, its defensive capabilities will slowly diminish – it will begin to “forget” them. That’s where this Defensive Training Session comes in: by playing this match archetype with your amiibo, its blocking and dodging abilities can be refreshed in just a few minutes.

Amiibo Training Guide: Luigi (Wii U & 3DS)

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

Luigi is shy, quiet and often overshadowed by his sibling, but he’s actually quite talented. His jumping ability surpasses Mario’s, and his all-around skills let him overcome any problem. He’s a bit cowardly and really afraid of ghosts. Even so, in the Luigi’s Mansion games, he was charged with cleaning up poltergeist problems.

Cloud’s Forum Adventures: Oblivion Island Saga

Cloud’s Forum Adventures (often shortened to CFA) was a poorly-written comic series that ran from 2012 to 2014. It was a disaster of incredible proportions, to say the least. There were so many problems: its characters were dull and unoriginal, its plot was cliche, and its visuals were awkward and over-the-top.

…Still with me? That’s too bad. This is not recommended reading, but if you insist, it’s your loss. The Oblivion Island Saga was the first story arc of Cloud’s Forum Adventures, and it’s 12 episodes long. If you read these episodes carefully, you’ll find that they make no sense. That’s because the plot progresses far too quickly and has no pacing whatsoever. Oh well.

Cloud’s Forum Adventures: Soul Shard Saga

Cloud’s Forum Adventures (often shortened to CFA) was a poorly-written comic series that ran from 2012 to 2014. It was a disaster of incredible proportions, to say the least. There were so many problems: its characters were dull and unoriginal, its plot was cliche, and its visuals were awkward and over-the-top.

…Still with me? That’s too bad. This is not recommended reading, but if you insist, it’s your loss. The Soul Shard Saga was the second story arc of Cloud’s Forum Adventures, and it’s 13 episodes long. This serial was plagued with uninspired dialogue and “battles” that ended far too quickly.

Cloud’s Forum Adventures: Lunar Battle Saga

Cloud’s Forum Adventures (often shortened to CFA) was a poorly-written comic series that ran from 2012 to 2014. It was a disaster of incredible proportions, to say the least. There were so many problems: its characters were dull and unoriginal, its plot was cliche, and its visuals were awkward and over-the-top.

…Still with me? That’s too bad. This is not recommended reading, but if you insist, it’s your loss. The Lunar Battle Saga was the third story arc of Cloud’s Forum Adventures, and it’s 35 episodes long. This serial suffers from a nonsensical storyline, random character appearances, and pointless battles that last far too long.

Cloud’s Forum Adventures: Nightmare Legion Series (Iteration 2)

Cloud’s Forum Adventures (often shortened to CFA) was a poorly-written comic series that ran from 2012 to 2014. It was a disaster of incredible proportions, to say the least. There were so many problems: its characters were dull and unoriginal, its plot was cliche, and its visuals were awkward and over-the-top. But this story arc was the exception.

During my senior year of high school, I decided to revisit Cloud’s Forum Adventures with a new story arc that would fix most (if not all) of its previous mistakes. I put extra effort into refining the visuals, adding variety to each panel, and making the characters more interesting – and that effort shows. That being said, the series was never finished. For being a silly comic strip about fighting puffballs, I think this was pretty decent.
