The launch of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s foray into the mascot platform fighter genre, MultiVersus, was absolutely massive. Millions of players have entered the battlefield to duke it out as their favorite WB heroes, villains, and zany icons. From Wonder Woman to Arya Stark and even Shaggy from Scooby-Doo, the diversity of the character roster in MultiVersus shows that anyone and everyone under the WB banner has the possibility to be playable down the line.

One of the most thrilling aspects of the MultiVersus community right now involves discussing the prospects for future content offerings. Warner Bros.'s staggering library includes HBO, DC Comics, Cartoon Network, TBS, NetherRealm Studios, Adult Swim, and more. Considering how many outrageous fighters have been added in the game's first two seasons, it's tough not getting caught up in who could come to MultiVersus next. With LeBron James of Space Jam fame, Rick and Morty, and Gizmo entering the arena, the floodgates are blown wide open. 

We’ve previously broken down our tier list of all current combatants, but now we turn our attention to the horizon. The rabid community has scoured in-game data and curious teases to paint a picture of what players might see. With bright eyes and unsubdued dreams, let’s break down all the confirmed, rumored, and wanted Warner Bros. characters imaginably making their way to MultiVersus.

With the kickoff of Season Two on November 15, 2022, Player First Games revealed Marvin the Martian would be the newest fighter joining the MultiVersus roster. Following his introduction a few weeks ago, we haven't received information on which characters are headed to MultiVersus for the remainder of the season. With Season One, the team announced a roadmap of fighters, so hopefully, players are treated to a similar strategy in the coming weeks. Unfortunately, this marks the longest stretch between character additions since the game's launch.

The ravenous MultiVersus community has been hard at work decoding what's potentially in store for upcoming characters and compiling sprawling lists. This next section details a staggering number of rumored and even leaked WB fighters. Some of this information comes from datamined files based on recent PC builds, so count this as your healthy spoiler warning for players interested in exciting fresh reveals. There is no official confirmation of release timing or these characters' current/future existence in MultiVersus. 

Due to the uncertainty of datamined files, text leaks, and image source leaks, we'll list these candidates by their name, franchise, data source, and interpreted likelihood based on recent development trends and current licensing situations.

Most wanted MultiVersus characters

Now that we've spent some time detailing the massive list of prospective MultiVersus candidates according to the community's leaks and rumors, let's highlight a selection of characters worthy of a place on the roster. From unforgettable villains to legendary figures from Cartoon Network's past, here's an assortment of fantastic future picks and what class they'd likely fill in the platform fighter. 

Eric Andre

Franchise: The Eric Andre Show  

Class: Bruiser  

The enigmatic host of The Eric Andre Show would be a hilarious, albeit disheveled, addition to the havoc of MultiVersus. Anybody who's witnessed the unfiltered madness of this sketch comedy series knows that Andre has no shortage of attack possibilities. Imagine the beauty of this character screaming "Let me iiiiiin" while clobbering opponents with a steel fence. MultiVersus needs to embrace the meme and ramp it up. 

Pennywise

Franchise: IT  

Class: Assassin  

There's a notable lack of horror representation in MultiVersus. However, this could easily be remedied with the inclusion of Pennywise, the dancing clown. Witnessing the elegant form of this lanky entity floating with its signature red balloons would be equal parts satisfying and horrifying. It's hard to envision a more dreadful foe on the battlefields of MultiVersus.

Meatwad

Franchise: Aqua Teen Hunger Force   

Class: Support   

Meatwad is one of those exceptional instances where the character's moves write themselves. This beloved Aqua Teen Hunger Force hero would make for an excellent ally since he can act as a literal meat shield, and his shape-shifting capabilities unlock absurd attack options. Plus, picture all the adorable costumes they could offer for this loveable meat mascot.   

Doctor Rockzo

Franchise: Metalocalypse  

Class: Mage/Ranged 

While not as traditionally frightening as Pennywise, Doctor Rockzo isn’t a person you’d want to encounter in a dark alley. This washed-up rock 'n' roll novelty act would provide a unique edge to MultiVersus. Doctor Rockzo has the power to belt out screeching high notes and launch devastating balloon animals at opponents. His proclivity for indulging in a certain illicit substance might make Doctor Rockzo a slightly controversial choice, but there has to be a reason for that course language toggle in the game’s settings.  

Courage

Franchise: Courage the Cowardly Dog   

Class: Assassin  

Courage the Cowardly Dog was a nightmarish animated series packed with fever dream-inspired imagery. Courage has seen his fair share of intimidating foes and would be an asset in the MultiVersus universe. Nimble, fearful, and clever, Courage could utilize a diverse kit of gadgets to overcome enemies. Introducing this cowardly dog would also allow for some truly iconic new stages.   

Dexter

Franchise: Dexter's Laboratory   

Class: Tank   

Dexter is a small child who happens to be a mad scientist. Unbeknownst to his parents, he's assembled a sprawling laboratory under their suburban home. What this lad lacks in brawn, he more than makes up for with brain. To even the playing field in MultiVersus, Dexter would call upon the aid of his meticulously crafted mech. Iron Giant can't be the only metallic fighter in MultiVersus. 

HIM

Franchise: The Powerpuff Girls  

Class: Assassin   

Part devil, part lobster, part fashion icon, HIM is one of the most compelling cartoon characters in Warner Bros.' sprawling catalog. This mysterious figure dons sexy Santa-inspired attire and leather-heeled boots that would make for fierce attacks in MultiVersus. With a slender figure, it's effortless to imagine HIM as a top-tier assassin in this platform fighter. 

Sam

Franchise: Trick 'r Treat 

Class: Support 

Did somebody say more horror representation? Sam from the anthology horror film Trick 'r Treat doesn't get enough appreciation as a Halloween mascot. His signature burlap sack mask and menacing grin are noteworthy in their own right, but dropping this child-like monster in MultiVersus would surely introduce frightening twists. As a support, Sam could drop candy to heal allies or damage opponents who consume them in disturbing urban legend fashion.  

Harvey Birdman

Franchise: Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law   

Class: Bruiser   

Harvey Birdman: attorney by day, MultiVersus bruiser by night. This working-class superhero would add a formidable aerial adversary to the fray, armed with sprawling eagle-like wings and his briefcase of justice. After battling the legal system in his 9-5, it's a great idea to give Harvey Birdman a proper outlet for his aggression. 

Catwoman

(Image credit: DC Comics)

Franchise: DC  

Class: Assassin   

DC Comics will undoubtedly receive loads of ongoing support in MultiVersus. As it stands, we have Batman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, and Superman. There are dozens of viable heroes and villains to pull from, but one clever thief, Catwoman, feels like a glaring omission. An assassin that fully embraces feline abilities and whip-driven combos can provide a perfect expansion to the cast.   

So much more to come

The energy and excitement surrounding MultiVersus is contagious. From its brilliant pick-up-and-play design to its array of outrageous playable characters, Player First Games and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have shockingly delivered one of the best fighting games in recent memory.   

It remains to be seen which of these possible characters will eventually make their way to MultiVersus. However, with several major characters added just months after launch, it's safe to say the team has a steady roadmap of content planned for the title. Here's to hoping your wildest character dreams come true. And, if you're aiming to compete in the recently added rank mode, check out our list of the best Xbox controllers
