The Effects of Amiibo
Get Exclusive Items
In BotW, you can use amiibo to obtain consumables and the items associated with the amiibo you have loaded. Some items are exclusive for amiibo, click the link below to check them out.
A Total of 24 Types For BotW
There are a total of 24 types of amiibo that can be used to obtain exclusive items in BotW. The items for each amiibo are slightly different, it is really hard to make a decision.
Also, if you load an amiibo other than the 24 types, you will be able to obtain food materials.
Each Amiibo Once Per Day
An amiibo can be loaded only once in one day. Normally, it is not possible to load amiibos more than once, so be careful of the timing of loading.
Able To Use Again After 0:00 AM
You can use the same amiibo again after 0:00 AM in the Switch in-game settings. It is possible to forcibly change the time setting and use it more than once, but do so at your own risk as it may cause problems.
