As of this writing, no official amiibo tier list has been released that includes Joker and Hero. It’s not hard to see why – they’re very tricky amiibo to pin down, especially Joker, who just had a handful of AI fixes in 9.0. So… where should they be?
That’s right – we’ve been at work training them and labbing out their AI. You can see a full training session of each of them in the embedded Youtube video, and discussions on the Joker AI (with a Hero video coming soon) on the Amiibo Doctor Youtube channel.
Special thanks to Supernova and Ethan of Exion Vault for completing the amiibo!
I did about 60 hours of in-game testing with CPU controlled opponents to try and determine the most generally effective Skills and Spirit sets for Hero, ahead of his amiibo release on October 2nd. Here are my results, sure to be helpful to anyone trying out the Hero Figure Player for the first time.
A bigger, longer, uncut list will be posted in video form on the Youtube channel! These are some quick points to be aware of:
Joker and Hero amiibo AI were not added in.
It appears that at least three amiibo had their AI improved to an incredible degree. Most notable is Bayonetta, who is generally considered to be the worst amiibo in the game. Early testing indicates she can perform a bizarre form of the ladder combo.
