These Are The Best-Selling Amiibo

These Are The Best-Selling Amiibo

Nintendo just announced what the best-selling Amiibo are across the world. If you're wondering why the one you've been looking for is tough to get your hands on, this might explain why.

There were two charts released: one for the best-selling Amiibo, and one for the Amiibos with the best "sell-through" (ie, the ones that have sold the most of their production run).

Which explains why the first chart is made up of the Amiibo that you see all the time, and the second one of Amiibo you rarely -- if ever -- see on a shelf.

Below are the ten best-selling Amiibo in North America:

  1. Link
  2. Mario
  3. Pikachu
  4. Kirby
  5. Samus
  6. Yoshi
  7. Zelda
  8. Donkey Kong
  9. Peach
  10. Luigi

While these are the ones with the best sell-through:

  1. Marth
  2. AC Villager
  3. Wii Fit Trainer
  4. Pit
  5. Captain Falcon
  6. Link
  7. Fox
  8. Rosalina
  9. Samus
  10. Yoshi

    Well with such a shortage of each no wonder they sold the most of their very small and limited production..

      Exactly. When everything is sold out surely the highest selling is simply the one they made the most of?

    I was planning on collectin these, but with the way Nintendo has handled them, I've lost all interest. They're barely worth the retail price to me, let alone the prices some people are charging. Turned me off the Nintendo brand a little too :(

    the first chart is made up of the Amiibo that you see all the time

    If never seen an Amiibo in any store as of yet. So is this chart of US sales?

      No, you're just very unlucky.

      EDIT: Luck aside, you're actually right. On the top of the first list

      I've seen plenty of Links and Pikachus in various stores. An odd Mario here and there and one Rosalina. I saw lots of Diddy Kongs in one particular EB Games I walked into. They are out there. Mind you nobody stocked the ones I actually wanted so needed to order them from ozgameshop :P

    At the risk of sounding like an idiot... What the hell is the deal with these things? Do they do anything?

      They can unlock stuff in games (new characters/abilities/skins) and can also be used with Smash Bros to raise and train an AI which is stored in the figure and can be taken to other people's games to fight.

        They're quite a bit of fun in smash! I've raised my falcon doing falcon punches, and brother raised his on falcon kicks. They're quite diverse in a fight.

        Its hitmonlee vs hitmonchan. :p

    http://www.vooks.net/link-is-the-worlds-most-popular-amiibo-except-in-australia/
    That link has worldwide data (including Australia), our sales are actually fairly different from North America.

    EDIT: Also want to point out http://www.amiiboinquirer.com/2015/02/17/nintendo-investor-meeting-217-english-slides/
    This part in particular..
    The sell-through proportion of the total shipment is approximately 70 percent in each of Japan, U.S. and Canada, and Europe while it reaches 90 percent in Australia.
    So here in Australia we went through 90% of our stock (compared to only 70% throughout the rest of the world and still only accounted for 3% of world sales?? I think we need a bit more stock over here Nintendo.

      The only one I don't see sold out everywhere is Mario, maybe we didn't get many Links.

    I have 14. Pre order at your local EB when they are announced. Try at multiple if needed. I have 2 within 10 minutes and another 15 minutes away which is crazy as I live in Tasmania.

    Not sure if you can pre order over the phone but worth trying.
