The official logo for amiibo.

amiibo are a series of collectible figurines based on characters from Nintendo franchises, which also tout functionality with various video games. The Nintendo 3DS and Wii U systems are compatible with amiibo, and scanning in various figures will unlock bonuses in certain games.

The first amiibo figurines that went out for sale were the ones related to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U. Among them were figurines of Kirby, King Dedede, and Meta Knight, as all three were fighters in that game. Later, concurrent with the release of Kirby: Planet Robobot, are a set of official Kirby series amiibo, including Kirby, Meta Knight, King Dedede, and Waddle Dee.

Kirby Games compatible with amiibo

The first game in the series compatible with amiibo was Kirby and the Rainbow Curse on Wii U. It is only compatible with the Smash figurines, which could be scanned in to give Kirby a bonus during the playthrough of a level. The bonus obtained depended on the figure used, and could only be used a certain number of times per day.

Kirby: Planet Robobot for 3DS is the second game compatible with amiibo. Here, the figures give Kirby a Copy Ability based on what type it is, as well as some Food (and a Sticker if the amiibo is a Kirby series one). If playing Meta Knightmare, the player only gains food. Unlike in Rainbow Curse, amiibo outside the Kirby series are also compatible.
