    This was the original post of this thread, I have done much editing since:
    Fates lets you scan the four fire emblem amiibo in order to unlock their specific battles, and if you beat them you get to recruit them. This is really cool since you get to play as characters from past games in the series. Unfortunately, not everyone has access to these amiibos as they are quite a pain to obtain (I share this unfortunate position). So, in point, I was wondering if there was anyway to tell the game that you unlocked these battles, so you could play them and obtain the characters. There must be some way, maybe not even that difficult. If this was possible to do a lot of people (including myself) would appreciate it very much. Any insight(s)?

    We can now play as Marth, Lucina, Ike, and Robin without the use of Amiibo. We also have access to many other specific units now!

    Many thanks to DeathChaos25 for being an original contributor to this topic, and many thanks to RainThunder who has been further contributing a lot to the topic! Without theses guys we would not have this much more accessible option to these units!


    RainThunder released a patch that UNLOCKS the Hero Battle Paralogues!!!! That's right, ladies and gents, THE ORIGINAL QUESTION TO THIS OP HAS BEEN SOLVED!!! Thank you so much RainThunder, now we can actually earn the amiibo units!!


    This version by RainThunder gives you all the amiibo units regardless of chapter and gives you path exclusive characters regardless of path, and captured bosses!:



    This is a LayerdFS plugin for the Japanese Special Edition of you needed one, thanks RainThunder!

    This is the original patch by DeathChaos25 that gave us access to amiibo units and Anna after chapter 16:


    This was an improved patch by RainThunder that fixed DeathChaos25's original patch limitations (can run patch and still gain characters who come in through my castle):


    This is a more fleshed out description on how to set up the NTR layeredFS patches by Demifiend:



    Through some hex editing we can now give the amiibo units their respective weapons! Thanks julianuf!:

    I was honestly leaning more towards the 'rom hacking' side of things rather than the 'utilities' side of things. Surely there is a way to go into the game data and simply tell it that you unlocked 4 maps.

    There's a guide on here somewhere to make your own amiibo cards and such a thing would be far less of a cost than investing in an amiiqo

    ^^ It's in the Wii U section. If you have an Android phone with NFC, I'd recommend it. Got some myself and they work great.

    Do you have an NTR Layeredfs plugin?

    If so, try this patch, it will simply give you all 4 amiibo units + Anna once you use your castle, I suggest that you delete the patch as soon as you have the units as it will prevent other units such as Izama, Flora, Jakob, Felicia, etc from joining you while the patch is running.

    This is for the US version of the game or the JPN one?

    Any version, you just need a layeredfs plugin for your version.

    Is there any requirements to get the units?
    It's not working here on my US save, the layeredfs plugin is working properly, so no idea why it isn't working.

    Isn't there a way to do this through HEX or save editing? Like can someone take a save or ram dump pre amiibo, scan the amiibo, then take another ram or save dump after and compare the differences?

    I don't want to buy a single thing, even if the nfc chips are only a few pennies. It goes against my nature as a pirate to buy anything.

    Oh, I forgot to mention, you need to be on chapter 16 or farther down, no specific route.
