All of these Amiibo will give you specific rewards when you scan them, whether that’s themed glider material or an outfit for Link.
It’s also possible to scan an Amiibo that’s not related to The Legend of Zelda series, although the reward will be a generic mix of cooking items like meat, fish, or fruit (so nothing special, basically).
For reference, in Breath of the Wild, there were over 20 Zelda-themed Amiibo that could be scanned for specific rewards, ranging from costumes to rare items and even the ability to summon Wolf Link.
What Amiibo rewards are there in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?
Just like in Breath of the Wild, scanning an Amiibo in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will reward you with weapons and outfits that will come in useful when exploring the land of Hyrule.
You’ll also be able to get fabric for Link’s paraglider, which will give it a visual theme based on the Amiibo you scanned. These fabrics are exclusive to Amiibo and cannot be obtained any other way.

How to use amiibo in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
You can use amiibo after completing the first Shrine in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, but you’ll also need to check the options menu and make sure the Amiibo function is set to enabled.
Once you’ve done that, hold down the L button and navigate to the Amiibo symbol in the wheel that appears. Make sure you’re aiming at a flat surface in the game, then tap your chosen amiibo on the right Joy-Con stick or at the center of the Pro Controller.
While you’re free to scan your Amiibo any time after completing the first Shrine in the tutorial section of the game, we would actually recommend following the main story until you unlock the Paraglider at Lookout Landing before scanning any of your Amiibo.
This is because we weren’t able to get any of the Amiibo-exclusive fabric rewards until we reached this point in the game. Considering you can only scan each Amiibo once per day, it’s definitely better to wait until you can get the good stuff.
Can you spawn Wolf Link in Tears of the Kingdom?
For anyone who’s curious, the bad news is that scanning the Wolf Link Amiibo will not make Wolf Link appear as a traveling companion in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
This is probably going to come as a disappointment to long-time fans of the franchise, as this was something you were able to do in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and it was a really nice feature.
