What is Arknights?
Arknights is a character-based tower-defense/gacha game made by Studio Montagne and Hypergryph, and published by Yostar (who also published Azur Lane). The player dons the mantle of a mysterious figure simply named the "Doctor", a master tactician and strategist who has just awakened from cryosleep, with no memories of his past other than his abilities and identity. The Doctor leads the Operators of a pharmaceutical company called Rhodes Island, which recruits both medical and military talent from all over the world of Terra to find a cure to the disease named Oripathy, which victims are simply named Infected. On the opposite side of Rhodes Island is a movement/rebellion called Reunion, comprised of persecuted Infected seeking refuge, revenge, or other causes.


And who is this donkey bunny girl?
Amiya is the de facto protagonist of Arknights, the public face and leader of Rhodes Island (although the Doctor, along with fellow doctor Kal'tsit are above her). In the game, she is a 5-star Caster who the player gets for free at the beginning of the story. (Operator rarities range from 1 to 6 stars, and Casters are ranged characters whose main focus is to deal Arts (magical) damage to enemies. Because of her extensive appearances in marketing and promotional material, plus literally being on the icon for the game, Amiya is considered Arknights' "poster girl".




Not gonna lie, her E2 art looks sick...

OK, what you're saying is cool and all, but...
HOW IS SHE GOING TO WORK IN SMASH?
1. Amiya represents the mobile gaming industry. Arknights, despite its short lifespan compared to other games like Azur Lane or Fate/Grand Order, has amassed an astonishing amount of popularity, arguably being at the top of the gacha games tower (ha).

2. She also represents the tower-defense genre. As far as I know, there are no characters in Smash who originate from tower defense games, and Amiya, being such a prominent face in her game, is a perfect candidate.

3. She's got deceptively high moveset potential. Don't look at her as just a simple mage. Amiya can play as a zoner using her Arts as setplay or posessing burst damage. She could have low mobility in exchange for high power. Just think about it...

4, and the most important one. Amiya in Smash would make people lose their minds. Think about it - an obscure, anime girl from a mobile game making into Smash? Even Japan would explode, much less the West.

This thread will be expanded as time passes, and more content is made to support Amiya in Smash.

Thank you for your attention, Doctor!

Made a Spirit Board for the Arknights characters!!!

I included the original 6-star Operators and sorted their rarity by their plot relevance, so if you're wondering why sheep girl or cat man are novices, well, there you have it.

I think Siege and Hoshiguma came out a bit sloppy, but otherwise I liked this!

Q: Sure, but...is there any evidence pointing to Amiya in Smash at all?

A:...None. None whatsoever.
That's the thing with Amiya. She has neither evidence going for or against her, because no-one's ever brought her up in Smash speculation. She's such an out-of-left-field pick that no one ever did research on her chances.


Although I will say that Yostar having no interaction whatsoever with Nintendo does hurt her quite a bit. That's even with Cloud in play.
