Breath of the Wild: All amiibo Functions Revealed

Nintendo took their time to reveal all amiibo functions for Breath of the Wild, where so far we didn't know what the Breath of the Wild line amiibo and the Zelda amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. line will do in the game. I even posted various expectations earlier this month. But it turns out that they all work like 30th Anniversary amiibo and just deliver goods on a daily basis with the chance for some special items.

Even the Guardian amiibo just gives you drops, where in this case it's probably materials that you normally get from destroying Guardians and other Sheikah technology:

Especially this amiibo is quite disappointing, because I really liked the thought of spawning a Guardian anywhere in the world for a fun challenge. That Rider Link doesn't summon horses, seems also like a missed opportunity, but it probably wouldn't have worked anyway, if there really are different mounts for different regions.

But I'm mostly just disappointed about the Guardian. It seems like Wolf Link is the only amiibo that is really worthwhile getting for the ingame features and the only real must-have amiibo for Zelda fans. But since I've always been an advocate that amiibo shouldn't be necessary to experience the full game, I won't complain any further.
