- Use an amiibo to summon something useful. You never know what's going to come through when you use it.
amiibo is a lesser power that allows you to summon a treasure chest of items to appear in-game. To do this, equip the power and cast it on the floor. Glowing concentric circles will appear and emit a sound when you approach. By then tapping an amiibo figure against Joy-Con controller in real life, a chest will be summoned containing loot themed to the amiibo used. This can be done once every 24 real-life hours per amiibo.
In-game tutorial: To use amiibo, equip and cast the power, then touch an amiibo to the NFC touchpoint on your controller to summon a chest with special rewards.
The items inside the chest will vary based on the amiibo used:
- Non-Legend of Zelda figures: food, gold, ingredients
- Legend of Zelda figures released before May 19, 2017 (listed in table below): 20% chance for a Champion's Tunic, a Hylian Shield, or the Master Sword, plus additional items as listed in the table below
- Legend of Zelda figures released after May 19, 2017: 20% chance for a Champion's Tunic, a Hylian Shield, or the Master Sword, plus armor, arrows, fruit, and/or weapons.
The chance of getting one of the Zelda items will increase with 5 compatible amiibo taps within five days (for instance, tapping the same one five days in a row, or tapping five compatible amiibo within one day), and resets after you get one of the items. While you can get unlimited amounts of Champion's Tunics or Hylian Shields, there can only be one Master Sword.
The chests summoned by Legend of Zelda amiibo are styled after the chests from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and play the "discovered-a-secret" chime from the Zelda games, while non-Zelda amiibo summon Skyrim-styled chests and are accompanied by chanting.
The following Legend of Zelda amiibo, released before May 19, 2017, give specific categories of items in addition to the chance of getting a Zelda item:
