Corresponding amiibo functionsEdit
The game supports all amiibo in the main menu - but only Super Mario related amiibo in the main modes of the game. Pressing L will reveal an amiibo option, and scanning an amiibo triggers effects such as fireworks or balloons. Players can unlock Rosalina, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong immediately if they have the amiibo.
Game Modes Edit
If the player scans amiibo of a playable character in single player mode, the ally will appear in Toad Scramble as the leader, and cannot be stolen by COM opponents. Players will also receive a Double Dice Block at the beginning of the game. The amiibo character will also be more powerful than other characters in the game. Coinathlon
Scanning an amiibo of a playable character in Coinathlon Mode will allow said playable character to obtain two of each item in game. They will also get a starting item, depending on the amiibo used.
Scanning a compatible amiibo will make a 3D figure of the amiibo character appear, with a 4-5-6 dice block. Scanning Gold Mario or Silver Mario will give you Silver and Gold Dice Blocks respectively. Bowser, Bowser Jr. and Boo are playable in this mode.
Boo's Block Party
Scanning the Boo amiibo will increase the number of Boos on screen.
When a player falls off the tower, they get the option to use amiibo of any playable character to get a second chance. The character you scan will replace the character you selected. Each amiibo can only be used once per day.
Scanning an amiibo of a character in the Character Museum will unlock a stamp to display for the character. Scanning the amiibo in for the first time will allow you to gain 50 bonus experience points.
