Figure Player (フィギュア プレーヤー, Figure Player), abbreviated as FP and referred to as amiibo, are types of fighters that can be used in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U as customizable A.I characters.

As the amiibo levels up, it'll "learn" techniques. For example, if an amiibo fights against an opponent who uses long-ranged, camping attacks, then the amiibo will learn it. Figure Players will continue to learn various techniques even after they reach a maximum level of 50. amiibo stats will be changed by "feeding" them equipment, as well as being able to change it's Custom Moves.

Custom Moves

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, all Figure Players (except for DLC fighters) have their own unique sets of Custom Moves to choose from, identical to regular Character Customisation.

Improved Stats / A.I Flaws / Prizes

In Addition, an amiibo can gain improved fighting stats, such as improved Attack power, Defense, Knockback, and reaction times, the higher level it is.

However, even higher leveled amiibo have their flaws on complex stages, like walking back and forth on stages like Gaur Plain.

amiibo can also win prizes like; Gold, Custom Parts, Trophies, and Mii Fighter Gear. The longer the amiibo fights, the more prizes it will gain.

How the amiibo learns

amiibo level up and learn faster by:

  • Having it play on someone else's Nintendo 3DS and/or Wii U.
  • Losing in stock battles.
  • Making it fight against different fighters as both games clearly state.
  • Using the same fighter as the amiibo you're playing against.
  • Fighting against other amiibo


As of Version 1.1.6 and above, all Computer Players (CPUs) and Figure Players (FPs) grab their Team Healers and go to their teammates who have the highest Damage to heal them.

While Super Smash Bros. for Wii U natively supports amiibo, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS was unable to do so at launch. Version 1.0.5, released on February 9, 2015, added amiibo support for all Nintendo 3DS systems. The New Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS XL and New Nintendo 2DS XL has native support for amiibos through the bottom touch screen.
