Uncle amiibo is a sapient robotic character who debuts in Super Mario Odyssey. He travels with Hint Toad and provides exclusive abilities for amiibo in the game. He is always found near the Odyssey's landing ground. He provides the locations of the Power Moons that the amiibo find, and provides a costume if certain amiibo are scanned. After using an amiibo to find a Power Moon, Mario must wait five minutes to retrieve the hint. Uncle amiibo does not appear in Dark Side until the completion of the Arrival at Rabbit Ridge! objective, and does not appear at all in Darker Side, but otherwise appears in every kingdom.
Mario is able to stand on Uncle amiibo just as on a platform, instead of bouncing on him repeatedly as it happens when Mario jumps on any other character.
