In this Multiversus guide, we'll rank each and every one of the current fighters, based on their performance in the closed alpha, pre-release beat, and open beta tests. It'll help you decide which ones are worth investing your time into and which are best left untouched.

MultiVersus tier list - best solo characters

Ranking Character name
SBatman, Harley Quinn, Bugs Bunny, Tom & Jerry, Finn, Rick
AShaggy, Jake, Taz, Arya Stark, Morty, Gizmo, Black Adam
BIron Giant, Superman, Wonder Woman, Velma, Garnet, Marvin the Martian
CLebron James, Steven Universe, Gizmo
FReindog

Check the table above to see our preliminary tier list of all the current Multiversus characters. Since the game is now properly out, our rankings are based on a combination of in-game performance, pro-level opinions, and community feedback.

You'll notice that anyone who "mains" a certain character will claim that their placement (if low) just means they're underused or misunderstood. And that's fair. But another thing that weighs a character's placement is how hard they are to pick up and play.

If they're only good for the one percent of players who put in the time to learn their skillset, they don't deserve a high spot. Accessibility and usability are factored in just as much as power, support, and other key metrics, which is why Reindog is at the bottom despite few players bigging up the character's hidden skill.

MultiVersus 2v2 tier list - best team picks

Tier Team
SBugs Bunny + Any, Tom and Jerry + Finn
ASuperman + Wonder Woman, Steven + Reindog, Batman + Wonder Woman
BHarley Quinn + Lebron James, Jake + Arya Stark, Velma + Jake, Gizmo + Taz
CIron Giant + Garnet, Iron Giant + Taz

Now, this one is a little difficult to explain. Like the tier list above, it uses a bunch of different metrics (power, skill, ease of use, support, combo, etc), but looks at how well two characters work together. We can't put every single pairing together purely because of how many possibilities there are, but we can rank some popular picks and have you fill in the rest.

Simply put, if a pairing is further at the bottom, the characters involved are just less likely to work well with any 2v2 situation. A lot of it will boil down to each player's skill, but you can only be as good as the characters can allow.

Who is the next Multiversus character?

Announced officially on September 23, 2022, Rick from hit cartoon Rick and Morty joined the game on September 27. As for who's next on the list, Stripe is on the way at some point in October.

Will there be more MultiVersus characters?

If the current roster doesn't include your favourite character from Warner Bros franchises, then worry not - new characters are on the way.

At the moment, WB Games has already added a few new characters in Morty and Gizmo, with Black Adam also confirmed to land down the line. Equally, we don't know whether more characters will be announced prior to MultiVersus releasing publicly, or if they'll come as add-ons.

However, some renowned leakers have pointed towards characters that'll come to MultiVersus at some point.

As per Hungrybox, Gandalf from Lord of the Rings is also set to be in the game, after early development screenshots leaked. That could be subject to change though, depending on whether plans or licenses have changed in the time since those leaks emerged.

Even if Gandalf does't come to MultiVersus, new characters are definitely on the way. Expect even more DC icons, Looney Tunes characters, and Cartoon Network classics.

In fact, the game's director recently posted a tweet all about how they're "working on a future character" and that "some cool stuff is in store." That's enough to suggest that more characters beyond the leaks are in development.

That's it for our MultiVersus tier list. We'll be sure to update it once new characters land and the meta changes at public release. Until then, feel free to check out our Multiversus voice actors list, to see who's behind your favourite fighter.
