Unlock exclusive gear / Save favorite weapons, gear, and control settings / Take photos with the character or saved gear

Each figure unlocks its own set of amiibo-exclusive gear. First registering data on the figure in another game like Splatoon 2 or Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will cause it to unlock all its gear in Splatoon 3 immediately. Otherwise it will unlock only one gear piece at a time, and then more pieces after winning some multiplayer battles.
