MultiVersus recently revealed that a MultiVersus open beta is coming in July, giving fans the opportunity to battle it out with many iconic TV and videogame characters. So far only 15 characters have been officially revealed for this free-to-play fighting game. However, impatient fans have already started datamining the game to see what they can dig up about future character announcements and one character name really stands out amongst the crowd.
A Redditor by the name of ‘hugeleakeractually’ recently unveiled a list of characters set to join the roster of MultiVersus. The list includes legendary characters such as Scooby-Doo, The Joker, Rick and Morty, and Marvin the Martian. However, some names stand out a bit more than others, such as Gizmo from the Gremlins, LeBron James, and, most notably, bumbling football coach Ted Lasso from the hit TV series.
Hugeleakeractually has created two lists, one of the characters they have “confirmed” are coming to MultiVersus and ones that are “likely” to be joining the MultiVersus character roster. Ted Lasso is amongst the characters that are most “likely” to be joining. Hugeleakeractually was one of the first people to leak MultiVersus before it was even announced, so despite them appearing to be a reliable source, take everything with a grain of salt until Warner Bros announces the characters officially.
While other characters make sense in the grand scheme of things, Ted Lasso is a really surprising name that has cropped up. Ted Lasso is the star of the Apple TV+ series of the same name and it is a real shocker that this dorky soccer coach from a live-action series is possibly going to be joining the MultiVersus roster as a fighting game character.
On paper, his character sounds whacky enough to actually work in MultiVersus, his moveset would be hilarious to see, as Warner Bros could have an absolute field day with designing the abilities of his character. Recently someone modded Minecraft Steve into the MultiVersus alpha, hopefully, no one will have to mod Ted Lasso into the game.
This is the “confirmed” list of characters from hugeleakeractually:
- Joker – DC
- Raven – DC
- Gizmo – Gremlins
- Marvin the Martian – Looney Tunes
- Lebron James – NBA
- Rick – Rick and Morty
- Morty – Rick and Morty
- Scooby-Doo – Scooby-Doo
- Daenerys – Game of Thrones
- The Hound – Game of Thrones
- Wicked Witch – The Wizard of Oz
- Godzilla – Godzilla
- Johnny Bravo – Johnny Bravo
- Fred Flinstone – Flinstones
This is the “likely” list of characters:
- Samurai Jack – Samurai Jack
- The Powerpuff Girls – Powerpuff Girls (all one Fighter)
- The Animaniacs – The Animaniacs (also all one fighter)
- Duck Dodgers/Daffy – Looney Tunes
- Scorpion – Mortal Kombat
- Ben 10 – Ben 10
- Ted Lasso – Ted Lasso
This is a fairly substantial roster leak, and some or all of these rumoured characters may never grace the fighting game. However, it does show you just how deep Warner Bros’ stash of IPs really is, and how the possibilities for the MultiVersus roster are pretty endless.
