For the amiibo brand of gear in Splatoon, see amiibo (brand).

amiibo are figurines produced by Nintendo that are equipped with Near-Field Communication technology and can be used in a variety of Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games, including Splatoon and Splatoon 2.[1]

Splatoon

On April 1, 2015, Nintendo announced in a Nintendo Direct that Splatoon would be receiving three different amiibo on May 29, 2015. These amiibo, when scanned in Inkopolis Plaza, unlock twenty different challenges with five unlockable boss challenges in Octo Valley and new exclusive gear to wear into battle. The three amiibo that have been announced are the Inkling Boy amiibo, the Inkling Girl amiibo, and the Inkling Squid amiibo with the Squid only available as part of the three-pack in North America, and in Europe exclusively in the Splatoon + Inkling Squid amiibo bundle.

Over a year after, a second wave of figures was announced, including the Squid Sisters, Callie and Marie, and three reskins of the amiibo from the previous wave.

Gameplay

The amiibo case is located at the southeastern corner of Inkopolis and it appears as the packaging amiibo traditionally come in. When scanning an amiibo (if the amiibo is registered) a flurry of paint circles the inside as the corresponding amiibo forms inside of it. The character introduces themselves and lays down guidelines for their challenges.

Each Wave 1 amiibo features twenty challenges if the single-player mode, Octo Valley, has been completed. The first challenge gives the player six hundred cash as a reward, with the reward increasing by one hundred more cash for each next challenge (i.e. one mission reward is 1000 cash, while the next mission reward is 1100 cash). Each challenge can be completed again, though for only a reward of 100 cash. When three challenges in the same row are completed, the fourth challenge for that set is unlocked, being the boss for its corresponding area in Octo Valley. As opposed to a monetary reward, the boss challenges provide three pieces of gear for the first three bosses, a minigame for the fourth, and a weapon blueprint for the final boss.

The Squid Sisters amiibo allow the user to view concerts in the plaza, similar to a Splatfest. The three reskins have the same behavior as their original counterparts. The challenge tree is shared between the original and reskinned amiibo.

Inkling Boy

Sup, playa?! Thanks a ton for callin' me up! I heard you've been makin' waves around the city. And I've got an inkling that you're the type of Inkling who's up for a challenge. Wanna give one of my roller challenges a go? I heard you've been doing work in Octo Valley. Wearin' that crazy getup, wreckin' Octobros and junk! That's when I knew for sure that you've got what it takes to try my challenges. All you gotta do is beat those same missions using a roller weapon! So are you game? I've got some dope rewards lined up if you can pull it off!

The Inkling Boy amiibo was released on May 29, 2015 along with Splatoon.

Inkling Girl

Dude! Lemme tell you I am SO glad you called me! I'm pickin' up a fresh vibe from you. Tell me...are you a fan of charger weapons? Cuz that's my kinda thing—making up challenges where you gotta use chargers! Are you game? Come to think of it...you've been pokin' around down in Octo Valley, yeah? Yup, I saw you in that rad outfit, fighting those...things. It looked super fun! But you know what would be even radder? If you used a charger weapon! That's my challenge to you. Clear missions with a charger, and I'll hook ya up!

Inkling Squid

Why, hello there, friendo! Thank you kindly for summoning me here. I can see you're just itching for some way to test your skills. Well, I've been thinking up some challenges that might float your boat! What do you say? Think you're up to the task? By the by, I hear you've been making quite a splash over in Octo Valley. In fact, I saw you at it! Wearing outlandish gear and fighting odd creatures! I think that proves you have what it takes to attempt my challenges. What do you have to lose? I have some nice rewards for you if you win!

The Inkling Squid amiibo was released on May 29, 2015. It can be used to unlock 16 Kraken and 4 limited-Ink challenges, and shooter challenges in Octo Valley and will provide the player with an exclusive costume piece after every four challenges completed. After completing all the challenges, the player will complete the set and receive the exclusive Power Gear along with the Squid Beatz minigame and the Hero Shot Replica blueprints. It is available exclusively for purchase in a pack of three with the Inkling Boy amiibo and the Inkling Girl amiibo in North America, and exclusively in a bundle with the main game in Europe. 

The original Inkling Squid amiibo is a green Inkling in squid form, and the recolored Inkling Squid is orange.

Challenges

The Inkling Squid amiibo allows players to complete specific Octo Valley missions in two ways: some can be completed as a Kraken with limited time, and others must be completed with limited ink. In the Kraken Challenges, the player is given the ability to turn into a Kraken instead of a Squid for the entirety of the level. In limited ink challenges, the player is given three or four full Ink Tanks to complete the level, but ink cannot be replenished. The challenges are as follows:

Squid Sisters

Promo image of the Squid Sisters amiibo

Amiibo figurines of Callie and Marie were released on July 8th, 2016. They can be used to unlock exclusive in-game Squid Sisters concerts, including two exclusive solo songs; one for each sister. Using either of the Squid Sisters causes the Plaza to take on its appearance during a Splatfest, and the player will be colored after and wearing a Splatfest Tee for whichever Squid Sister was used. During the concert, no buildings can be entered, nor can Judd be talked to.

The Squid Sisters can perform the following songs, each with its' own dance routine:

  • Ink Me Up (Splatfest Battle)
  • Now or Never! (Splatfest Battle - 1 Minute Remaining!)
  • City of Color (Splatfest Plaza)
  • Maritime Memory (Credits Sequence)
  • Calamari Inkantation (Vs. DJ Octavio - Phase 2)
  • Bomb Rush Blush (Callie's solo; can only be chosen with Callie amiibo)
  • Tide Goes Out (Marie's solo; can only be chosen with Marie amiibo)

Dioramas

Splatoon amiibo diorama.jpg

Nintendo has released two Splatoon themed dioramas to display the amiibo. One is based on Kelp Dome and another is based on a Squid Sisters concert. Both are foldable and the Squid Sisters diorama includes a hole to slot a 3DS or phone to display a Squid Sisters concert. They both come with stickers and is currently exclusive to Japan.

Third-party usage

amiibo tap: Nintendo's Greatest Bits

amiibo tap: Nintendo's Greatest Bits, known in Europe and Australia as amiibo Touch & Play: Nintendo Classics Highlights, is a downloadable application for Wii U that allows amiibo owners to try out classic NES and SNES games. All amiibo figures work with the application. [2]

Animal Crossing: New Leaf

As part of an update for Animal Crossing: New Leaf, amiibo compatibility was added, which includes Splatoon amiibo as well. At a certain point, the player will find a magic lamp that will allow them to summon Wisp once a day. When summoning Wisp, the player can tap a compatible amiibo for him to take the form of the villager it is associated with. The player can either ask for an item or for the real villager to show up at the new Campground area. There, the villager will be waiting for the player in an RV. Inside, the player can ask the villager to move into their town, as well as order furniture using MEOW coupons.

Tapping the Callie amiibo will summon Cece the Squirrel. The Marie amiibo summons Viché the Squirrel. Both variants of the Inkling Boy, Girl, and Squid amiibo summon Inkwell the Octopus. Each villager comes with their own Splatoon themed items to order as well.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

In Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, the Splatoon amiibo figures can be used for a 1-UP Mushroom. Most of the other amiibo figures can be used for this as well, however.[3]

Chibi Robo! Zip-Lash

In Chibi Robo! Zip-Lash, tapping any amiibo except the Chibi Robo amiibo gives you in-games coins. [4] Tapping the Inkling Girl, Boy, and Squid amiibo will also add special figures of Chibi Robo posing as their respective characters that can be collected via the in-game capsule machine.

Hyrule Warriors

The Splatoon amiibo figures can be tapped once a day in Hyrule Warriors for a weapon rated 3 stars or lower, a Rupee bonus, or a crafting material bonus. Most of the other amiibo figures can be used for this as well, however.[5]

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Kirby: Planet Robobot includes an amiibo feature that grants Kirby a copy ability depending on the character. The Inkling Boy, Girl, and Squid all grant access to the Poison ability for Kirby.

Mario Party 10

The Splatoon amiibo figures can be tapped in Mario Party 10 for a Scratch Bonus and Mario Party Points. Most of the other amiibo figures can be used for this as well, however.[6]

Miitopia

The Splatoon amiibo figures have been confirmed to be compatible with Miitopia, unlocking costumes based on their characters.

Mini Mario and Friends: amiibo Challenge

In Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge, any Splatoon amiibo figure can be used to start the game. This is the same for all other amiibo, though. However, certain amiibo from the Super Mario series unlock extra stages and have special abilities as well.[7]

Style Savvy Inkling Girl amiibo.jpg

New Style Boutique 2: Fashion Forward

In the Western version of Nintendo Presents: New Style Boutique 2 - Fashion Forward (released in North America as Style Savvy: Fashion Forward), players are able to scan the Inkling Girl amiibo to unlock a pair of leggings inspired by Splatoon.[8] After the amiibo is scanned, a costumer will show up at the player's store asking for a new outfit that goes with their Inky Leggings. When the request is completed, the player will be rewarded with those leggings.

Pokkén Tournament

The Splatoon amiibo figures can be tapped once a day in Pokkén Tournament for an avatar costume item, a title, or a Poké Gold bonus. Up to 5 amiibo rewards can be claimed per day. Most of the other amiibo figures can be used for this as well, however.[9]

Super Mario Maker

Squid amiibo humanoid.png
Splatoon callie marie Super Mario Maker.png

Super Mario Maker features Mario skins of numerous Nintendo characters through amiibo. Splatoon amiibo will grant the player with a costume resembling the scanned character.[10] The Inkling Squid can assume humanoid form and is revealed to be a dark-skinned male with a Splat Roller, the Studio Headphones, the White Layered LS, and what appears to be the Cream Basics. The Callie and Marie costumes can alternatively be unlocked by playing a certain Event Course. When playing in an underwater level, all the amiibo costumes swim in squid form.

Word Puzzles by POWGI

In Word Puzzles by POWGI, scanning in any amiibo generates a word puzzle based on the owners Mii name and the nickname of the amiibo.[11]

Yoshi's Woolly World

All Splatoon amiibo costumes

Yoshi's Woolly World features Yoshi patterns based of numerous Nintendo characters through amiibo. Splatoon amiibo will grant the player with a pattern resembling the scanned character.

Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World

Like the Wii U original, Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World features Yoshi patterns based on Nintendo characters through amiibo. All Splatoon amiibo, including Callie, Marie, and the Inkling recolors, will grant the player with a pattern resembling that character.

Trivia

  • The Inkopolis Plaza out of bounds glitch reveals that the back of the amiibo case at the southeastern corner does have a texture and looks like the back of real amiibo packaging, except the words are written in Inkling.
  • The Inkling Girl's amiibo is the basis for its trophies in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.
