amiibo are collectible figurines which can be used in many Zelda games to different effects. There are 25 The Legend of Zelda amiibo, featuring characters all throughout the series of games.
There are currently three series of Zelda amiibo: Super Smash Bros., 30th Anniversary, and Breath of the Wild. Some one-off amiibos have also been released.
The Legend of Zelda amiibo are compatible with many Nintendo games, but are only compatible with five Zelda games and two iterations of the Super Smash Bros. series. An amiibo can be used by scanning it on the NFC reader of the respective console.
Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U
When used in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, an amiibo creates a special fighter that is tied to the specific amiibo used. For example, the Link amiibo will create a special Link fighter that is only usable with that Link amiibo. amiibo of characters that do not correspond to a fighter in the Super Smash Bros. roster cannot be used. This amiibo fighter, called a Figure Player or (FP), will grow more powerful as it is used, much like real-life training in a specific field. In addition, amiibo can be "fed" equipment used to create custom fighters, and will permanently gain the effects of that equipment. For example, a Mario amiibo can be "fed" hammer equipment and permanently gain the effects of it, a feature that is impossible for the standard Mario fighter.
In Hyrule Warriors, Hyrule Warriors Legends, and Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, amiibos can be used to obtain weapons and materials in the game. Any amiibo used that represents a character in the game, such as Ganondorf, Midna, or Sheik, will give the player a weapon for that character. The Toon Link amiibo will provide weapons for Toon Link, but the Young Link and any other Link amiibos will only provide weapons for Link. If a non-Zelda amiibo is used, it grants them a random material or rupees. The player can use up to ten amiibos in a day.
Twilight Princess HD
The Wolf Link amiibo can be scanned to record Link's records in the Cave of Shadows, specifically the amount of hearts remaining at completion. If the amiibo is later scanned into Breath of the Wild, the wolf summoned will have the health from Twilight Princess.
Breath of the Wild
- Main article: Breath of the Wild Amiibo
By using the amiibo Rune ability, each Zelda amiibo can be scanned in Breath of the Wild to produce a unique effect. The game also allows you to disable using this rune on the main menu.
The Amiibo rune can be disabled an enabled in the Options menu. In certain cases near the early game the Amiibo rune will be disabled and cannot be enabled until getting to a certain point in the game.
There are weapons and armor which are amiibo-exclusive in the game.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Like in Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, amiibos can create Figure Players of the character used that will learn and level up to becme more powerful. In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, amiibo characters can also be fed Spirits to level up.
Amiibos in Link's Awakening (Switch) can be used by speaking to Dampé at his shack. They have the ability to store and load Chamber Dungeons created as well as grant special chambers. Up to five different amiibo from The Legend of Zelda series can be tapped in order to receive the Great Fairy's Chamber, Moblin Chief's Chamber, Ball and Chain Soldier's Chamber, Cracked Floor Chamber, and Armos Knight's Chamber. If the Link's Awakening amiibo is tapped, it will add the Winged Item Chamber as well as the +Shadow Link effect, allowing Link to add Shadow Link to a chamber.
Age of Calamity

Any amiibo will generate a reward in BotW:AoC, up to 5 rewards can be collected per user account per system day.
There are no unique items bound to amiibos, however, each amiibo will always generate contextual drops. Example, the Guardian amiibo will only drop Ancient parts. Any Zelda or Sheik amiibo will only drop either a weapon for Zelda or Hylian materials (e.g. Hylian Rice) or gems (e.g. Amber). The Urbosa amiibo will only drop a weapon for her, electric materials (e.g. Voltfin Trout, Electric Safflina), or Gerudo Desert materials (e.g. Hydromelon).
Other amiibos (ex. a Samus SSB amiibo) will drop completely random materials (test: 4 scans).
