Kirby Star Allies on Nintendo Switch

Kirby Star Allies is the next iteration of the adorable floating pink bubble gum glob's adventure. In this new Nintendo Switch game, players combine powers with friends to take down even the biggest of bullies with joint force.

If you're rushing out to grab yourself a copy of Kirby Star Allies today, you might as well grab some helpful amiibo while you're at it. There are six special little guys that will provide additional exclusive items when you trigger them in your Kirby game. Plus, lots and lots of amiibo that reward basic items.

Editor's Note — Some of the amiibo you see in this list are no longer in circulation, and will be both more difficult to track down and more expensive than the standard retail pricing for one of these amiibo figures.

Special items

The Kirby Clan rewards you with additional Illustration Pieces (not the special purple ones, but the ones you can find throughout the game). There are six amiibo that give this special reward.

Other amiibo

Great news! It appears that nearly every amiibo in existence is compatible with Kirby Star Allies, plus Animal Crossing trading cards, Super Mario cereal, and Mario Sports Superstars cards. Basically, if it has an NFC chip, it works with Kirby Star Allies. You'll get one Illustration Piece, plus random items like stars, health food, and extra lives.
