In Splatoon 3, what do all of the amiibo do?

In Splatoon 3, what do all of the amiibo do? ...

Splatoon 3 is launching in the Splatlands, with a slew of new content and gameplay mechanics for players to dip their teeth into. However, returning content is also a core component of the game, as well as amiibo functionality.

With the relaunch of new amiibo, one of the original Splatoons features was the ability to use specific amiibo figures to unlock exclusive gear and bonuses. This remained until the game expanded from Wii U to Nintendo Switch with Splatoon 2, and is now more expansive than ever.

Splatoon's amiibo capabilities have varied in their breadth, with some scans revealing new gear while others revealing new challenges to complete at least back in the original game. This hasnt changed in Splatoon 3, though the current lineup of amiibo available at launch only gives gear.

A new set of Splatoon 3 amiibo will be released before the end of the year, and since these are new figures, they may very well unlock additional content, such as challenges, bonuses, or even modes. We will not know for sure until they are released, but here is a list of the available amiibo unlocks for Splatoon 3, with the represented character and the release date.

For one reason or another, some rewards may double up or not be given, according to several sources, including Destructoid. This has been noted, and if there are any changes, the list will be updated to match. However, for the most part, each amiibo will provide you a unique set of gear or part of a set.

Oh, and if you only get part of a set but the amiibo mentions how you need more experience or to play more battles, you may scan them again later on to get more rewards.

Do non-Splatoon amiibo work with Splatoon 3?

Try again with a different number, as with previous Splatoon games.

This does unfortunately mean that none of your remaining amiibo will work with Splatoon 3, but this has been the case in every iteration of the series, so it isnt a surprise.
