    Subjects the question, I am fairly unfamiliar with NFC.

    I read NTAG215 is what people use for Amiibo back ups. Is that only working format or will the 216/203's and others work as well?

    Debating between a power save, keychain, stickers etc etc etc.

    Correct (the other kinds have different storage layout and features; vaguely like how different nes/gbc games used different mappers and you can't just swap the actual rom between any different board)

    Also you need the right size of storage
