With a new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate comes with it a raft of new amiibo. Nintendo’s pulled no punches here either, with a physical toy version of every single new fighter in the latest version of Smash.
That includes epic new fighters in the form of Ridley from Metroid, Wolf from Star Fox and King K. Rool from Donkey Kong. That’s just a few of the whopping 12 new fighters that have amiibo on the way.
Now that those amiibo have started to appear for pre-order on a bunch of sites, we thought we’d put together this guide to help you figure out where to spend your hard-earned cash.
So if you’re looking to grab one of the many upcoming new amiibo, look no further than this guide. Even if you don’t end up grabbing one or a few, it’s still a nice way to browse through the selection on offer.
Ridley is the leader of the Space Pirates in the Metroid series and Samus’s long-standing rival in battle. He looks like a pterosaur but has high intelligence and a brutal nature.
Ridley utilizes wings for a full range of flight and attacks with fireballs from his mouth and whips of his tail. He also looks great in plastic.
Wolf used to fight in Andross’s army, tangling with Star Fox in battle after battle. After Andross’s exile, he went his own way and formed a mercenary team called Star Wolf.
He and his Eternal rival, Fox, have even fought on the same side from time to time…but inevitably, they always meet again as enemies.
Young Link amiibo
Young Link is a character in the Legend of Zelda series, though only named Young Link in the Super Smash Bros. series and Hyrule Warriors. The character is Link as a young child, in case that wasn’t obvious.
Piranha Plant amiibo
A Piranha Plant is an enemy in the Mario series. The enemy is a large plant with a round head and a mouthful of teeth that will pop out of a pipe, usually. This one is a bit of a shock inclusion to the Smash line-up!
King K. Rool amiibo
King K. Rool is the malevolent leader of the Kremling Krew known to be mad, bossy, power-hungry tyrant, thief, irritated and megalomaniac. He repeatedly orders his right-hand Klump or others minions to steal Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong’s Banana Hoard, kidnapping Kong Family members and get powerful objects for his goals.
Inkling Girl amiibo
Inklings hail from the city of Inkopolis in the Splatoon series. They crave team-based competition and love to customize their gear before participating in the hottest sport in town, Turf War! Their hobbies include making messes, rocking the latest fashions, dancing, and spoiling the nefarious plans of their evil octopus archrivals, the Octarians! For realsies!
A Tiny Mouse Pokémon. Because its electric cheek pouches are still small, it cannot store electricity yet. Pichu has been known to flaunt its courage by touching tails with others and setting off sparks. It is easier for Pichu to build up electricity when the humidity is lower.
The fleet-footed Ken Masters of Street Fighter is joining the ever-expanding Super Smash Bros. Ultimate cast as an echo fighter.
Ice Climbers amiibo
The Ice Climbers, Popo and Nana, a boy dressed in a blue Inuit parka and a girl dressed in a pink Inuit parka respectively, are the stars of the NES game Ice Climber. These two have always been pioneers and have scaled many icy mountains in their time. In their glory days they pursued a condor who, peculiarly, had possession of cucumbers, eggplants and various other vegetables.
Princess Daisy is the princess Mario rescued in the Game Boy game Super Mario Land. She is the princess of Sarasaland.
Unlike Princess Peach and despite her sweetness and beauty, Daisy has a strongly implied tomboyish personality, although she still wears dresses and crowns as the princess she is.

Similarly to the Villager, Isabelle use various items from Animal Crossing to damage her enemies like the fishing rod, pots, buckets of water, stop signs, Gyroids, etc…
Octoling Triple Pack amiibo
The protagonist of the Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion DLC is a young Octarian Octoling, known as Agent 8. Octolings seem to have a more serious nature than the carefree Inklings we’re accustomed to.
They’re naturally good with their hands and adept at using tools and machinery, making them quite formidable in battle. Like Inklings, they have the ability to transform, but into octopuses rather than squids.
The Octoling Amiibo Triple Pack Includes: Octoling Boy, Octopus, Octling Girl.
