Using amiibo with Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is very simple. From the main menu, you will see the amiibo logo in the lower right corner of the screen, just above Language Settings. Press the R button and a window will appear that will prompt you to scan an amiibo. All amiibo are compatible but some give better rewards than others.

The Legend of Zelda amiibo are more likely to gift weapons more specific to their relative character in-game, non Zelda amiibo and Zelda amiibo that do not have playable characters in-game can gift anything from rupees and materials to random weapons.

Regardless of the amiibo you use, you can only scan 5 amiibo a day and only one of the same type. For example, even if you have 8 different Link amiibo, you can only scan one of them a day. The Wolf Link amiibo, however, is the exception to this rule.

As mentioned before, each amiibo can gift something different in Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition. Below is a list of what each Legend of Zelda amiibo can gift you, regardless of their series (Super Smash Bros., The Legend of Zelda, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild).

One important thing to note is that any weapons that you receive will be limited to only weapons you have currently unlocked in-game. The rank of the weapons will also be reflective of the highest ranking weapon you have unlocked. If you only have 3 Star weapons, you will only receive 3 Star weapons from amiibo gifts as the highest level.

Note: The name of the weapons listed below are that of the category they are listed under. For example, Link’s Hylian Sword has four variants: Knight’s Sword, White Sword, Magical Sword, Magical Sword+. The same goes for each of the other characters and their respective weapon sets.

 Zelda amiibo with playable characters in-game:

Link – Hylian Sword, Magic Rod, Gauntlets, Epona, Spinner, Great Fairy
Zelda – Rapier, Baton, Rod
Shiek – Harp
Ganondorf – Great Swords, Trident
Wolf Link – Shackle
