Scooby Doo’s Shaggy Sheds His Cowardice in MultiVersus
Although he is entering the ring without the Mystery Gang, Norville Rogers, commonly referred to as Shaggy, has joined the fighting arena. Shaggy first appeared in Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! in 1969 and has been solving mysteries with Scooby the gang ever since. According to his backstory, Shaggy was investigating a spooky mansion, as he tends to do, when he came across a glowing crystal he mistook for rock candy. Now, he has supernatural powers and vows to defeat whatever evil forces come his way.
Reindog Is a MultiVersus Original Character
It is okay not to recognize Reindog, as he’s a MultiVersus original. According to his bio, he is the Guardian of Zanifeer and is the sixth entity to wear the Gem of Power. His world, Zanifeer, was one of the first to fall victim to the “Nothing” during the great dimensional cataclysm. The “Nothing” appears to be the force that brings all of the dimensions in MultiVersus together, so Reindog may be an important story character down the line. As the protector of the Royal Family of his planet, Reindog is a loyal warrior who will do whatever it takes to protect those that he loves.
Steven Universe Steps Up to Protect the Multiverse
First appearing in the show of the same name, Steven Universe is a hybrid of a human and a magical, extraterrestrial being known as a Gem. Raised by the Crystal Gems, Garnet, Pearl and Amethyst hid out on Earth until he became a teenager and discovered he had his own powers.

Steven will always save the day with his unrelenting optimism and the help of the people he loves.
Steven Universe’s Garnet Brings Leadership to MultiVersus
A fusion of the Gems Ruby and Sapphire, Garnet is the leader of the Crystal Gems.

Garnet is considered one of the most stable Gem fusions in existence, and it shows with her dedication to her team and being a general powerhouse. She comes across as stoic and unfeeling, but she will stop at nothing to protect her loved ones.
Whose Side Is DC Comic’s Harley Quinn On in MultiVersus?
Harley Quinn first appeared in the comic book Batman: Harley Quinn #1 in 1999. Hailing from Gotham, psychiatrist Dr. Harleen Quinzel never recovered after falling in love with The Joker. She adopted the persona of Harley Quinn and spent many years by Joker’s side until she found the courage to leave him and strike up the life of a solo criminal. Always full of surprises, she has occasionally found herself doing good and fighting side-by-side with teams like the Suicide Squad.
Game of Thrones’ Arya Stark Steals Faces From Her MultiVersus Opponents
Game of Thrones‘ Arya Stark was born in Winterfell to House Stark. From a young age, Arya never took to formalities or the responsibilities of being a lady of her noble family; she was much more inclined to learn sword fighting and chart her own destiny. Unfortunately, her father’s execution shaped her fate, as the event scattered her family across Westeros. Arya struggled to survive until she trained to be a Faceless Man in Essos. This training would transform Arya into a skilled swordswoman and change the fate of Westeros.
Adventure Time’s Finn the Human Is a MultiVersus Assassin
Finn the Human is the protagonist of Adventure Time, and he kicks the buns of evildoers with his best pal Jake the Dog. He has an adventurous spirit, and he loves being a hero in the Land of Ooo. He has saved multiple princesses and defeated evil wizards, among other achievements. Despite his resolve to fight evil, he is still just a fun-loving kid, so he spends his downtime with friends or playing video games in his treehouse home.
Wonder Woman Is an Inspiration Fighting for Good
Born on the island of Themyscira, Wonder Woman is a founding member of the Justice League and one of DC Comics’ most renowned heroes. She first appeared All Star Comics #8 in 1941 and has since been adapted to nearly every form of media. Wonder Woman originally lived with proud female warriors known as the Amazons on Themyscria before being sent to uphold peace throughout the rest of the world. Her heroism is unwavering, and she has become an inspiration for heroes young and old.
Adventure Time’s Jake the Dog’s Stretchiness Serves Him Well
Jake the Dog is a fun-loving, shapeshifting dog who appears in Adventure Time as Finn’s best friend and partner. Together, Jake and Finn have traveled throughout the Land of Ooo to stop evil wherever they can find it. His shapeshifting abilities allow him to transform his body into whatever shape he wants, growing, shrinking and contorting as he pleases. Although he lives the life of an adventurer, he still takes time off to spend time with his wife, Lady Rainicorn, and their five pups.
Superman Fights Evil In All Forms in MultiVersus
Faster than a speeding bullet and more powerful than a locomotive, Kal-El has gone by many names, but he is known as Superman to the general public. Sent to Earth as a baby, he narrowly escaped the destruction of his home planet, Krypton. He was then raised on Earth by Jonathan and Martha Kent, who took care of him and named him Clark. As he matured, he learned that Earth’s yellow sun gave him superpowers that he could use to protect the world. Now, with the help of the Justice League, he protects Earth from domestic and extraterrestrial threats.
Batman Doesn’t Need Superpowers to Defend in MultiVersus
Bruce Wayne, also known as Batman, first appeared in Detective Comics #27 in 1939. Bruce led a privileged life as a young boy living with his loving family on the outskirts of Gotham City. However, his life took a tragic turn when he witnessed his parents gunned down in front of him. On that day, the young boy swore a vendetta against the crime that corrupted his city, took on the persona of Batman, and eventually helped form the Justice League. Despite not having any supernatural powers, he uses his vast fortune and supreme intellect to overcome all obstacles.
Bugs Bunny’s Toon Ability Makes Him a Diverse Fighter
A character who hardly needs any introduction, Looney Tunes‘ Bugs Bunny has been funny since he first appeared in “A Wild Hare” in 1940. Bugs has found himself in many precarious situations over the last 70 years, including numerous crossovers with other franchises, so he should feel right at home in MultiVersus. His ability as a toon allows him to do just about anything the plot requires him to do. This enduring pop-icon may meet his match, though, when trading blows with some of the most iconic characters from the multiverse.
Tom and Jerry Combine Forces to Stop “The Nothing”
Thomas Jasper “Tom” Cat, Sr. & Gerald Jinx “Jerry” Mouse have been at odds since their debut in 1940. They can use their abilities to accomplish just about anything — although they typically use them to beat up one another during their games of cat-and-mouse. It will be interesting to see how they put aside their differences in MultiVersus to fight as a duo. Working together, the cat and mouse may prove to be an unstoppable pair.
Velma from Scooby-Doo Is a Fast Thinker
Velma Dinkley, with her well-honed mystery-solving abilities at the ready, is prepared for battle (as long as she doesn’t lose her glasses). The game confirmed Velma as a playable character in March through its Twitter account, but it was only recently that players could see her in action. She is well-known for being Mystery Inc’s leading bookworm and super sleuth, but she will soon show the world that she can hold her own in a fight if need be.
The Tazmanian Devil Has an Appetite for Destruction in MultiVersus
Taz is known for causing a ruckus wherever he goes, and the MultiVersus arena is the perfect place for him to let loose. Introduced in the 1950s, only Bugs and Tom & Jerry predate this wild fellow, making him the third-oldest property represented in the game so far. He is the perfect choice for an all-out brawl with his crazy attacks and wicked temper — but will the other fighters be able to tame the beast?
The Iron Giant Fights to Impress Superman in MultiVersus
The 1999 movie, The Iron Giant, introduced the world to the metallic marvel of the same name. The Iron Giant originally crashlanded off the shore of Rockwell, Maine, after which he suffered from amnesia. Despite being lost and directionless, the Iron Giant was found by a young boy named Hogarth Hughes. The two quickly became best friends, and Hogarth helped him find his purpose. The Iron Giant is now a defender of the innocent and does his best to emulate his hero, Superman, and thanks to MultiVersus, he will even be able to see his idol in action for the first time.
LeBron James Joined MultiVersus After Space Jam: A New Legacy
Unlike the other characters in MultiVersus, LeBron James hails from our world. Sort of. This interpretation of James is lifted from the movie Space Jam: A New Legacy, where he teamed up with Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Tune Squad and played a basketball game to save his son from the artificial intelligence known as “Al-G Rhythm.” He is still a winner of multiple NBA titles, MVPs, and Olympic Gold medals, but he is also good friends with the Looney Tunes. Who says cartoons are for kids?
Can Rick Sanchez Set His Ego Aside for the Multiverse?
Rick Sanchez of Rick and Morty is simultaneously the smartest and most wanted man in the universe. With his grandson, Morty, often by his side, he has saved and threatened multiple universes and dimensions on numerous occasions. Having seen all reality has to offer, he leans on the goodwill of his grandson and his family to keep his humanity in check. Rick has the potential to be the most influential being in all of reality — he just has to stop being a selfish, egocentric, nihilistic drunk first.
Morty’s Optimism Just Might Save the Day
Morty Smith is an average high schooler who lives anything but an average life. He and his narcissistic, genius grandfather Rick go on many adventures throughout the universe, multiverse, and all dimensions in between, more often than not getting into trouble. Although he is very mild-mannered and frequently unsure of himself, he has proven, sometimes to his grandpa’s chagrin, that he can hold his own and stand up for himself and his family when the time arises.
Gremlins Stripe Is Another MultiVersus Assassin
A rule-breaking Mogwai whose antics turned into a dangerous gremlin, Stripe is a lover of chaos and mayhem. He loves nothing more than wreaking havoc wherever he goes, which suggests he fits into MultiVersus perfectly. With special moves like Sharpshooter and Dynamite Boo, he’d do just about anything to defeat his father and arch-nemesis Gizmo–assuming he doesn’t blow himself to bits in the process.
DC’s Black Adam Is a Powerhouse
Blessed with the powers of the gods, Black Adam claims to be on no one’s side but his own. Fortunately for mortals, from time to time his needs force him to ally with the world’s heroes out to save the day. The suffering Black Adam has endured in his lifetime made him a hardened, calculating ruler, suggesting the best approach is to stay off his bad side when battling for the Multiverse.
Gizmo Joined MultiVersus to Stop Stripe
With the epic power of song in his corner, Mogwai support character Gizmo joined the battle for the Multiverse in hopes of stopping his offspring, Stripe. Throughout the course of his incredibly long life, Gizmo has always been a hero, working hard to right the wrongs in the world–especially if those wrongs have been brought on by his own gremlin-corrupted children. With his iconic bow weapon and power moves like Gizmo-A-Go-Go, Gizmo’s powers were so epic, they were nerfed shortly after his addition to the game.
Marvin the Martian Launches MultiVersus Season Two
The only character confirmed so far for Season Two is Marvin the Martian from Looney Tunes. Hailing from Mars and bent on destroying Earth, Marvin is MultiVersus‘ newest Assassin. Season Two will also feature a new map, network and latency improvements, a brand new Battle Pass, and more unannounced characters.
