Fighting games can be a great source of entertainment and enjoyment for players of all skill levels. However, for some players, the ultimate goal is to compete at the highest possible level and come out on top. For these players, mastering the strongest characters and exploiting their advantages is an essential part of winning.
While game balance is always a concern for developers, the desire to create a diverse cast of characters with unique abilities and playstyles can sometimes lead to certain characters being stronger than others. In this article, we will talk about the five most powerful Multiversus characters that will give you a slight advantage over your opponent. Just remember that imperfect game balance is not a guarantee for victory: you would still need to show your skills and outplay an opponent.
Let’s start with one of the most popular superheroes in the world. We all know the tragic story of Bruce Wayne and how he became the Dark Knight, so we won’t tell it one more time. We had zero doubts that the comics icon, who was portrayed by such great actors like George Clooney, Christian Bale and Michael Keaton, will appear on an ambitious cross-over platform fighter.
In Multiversus, Batman is a great bruiser who has excellent balance without obvious weaknesses. He has decent mobility, and that helps him punish an opponent for their mistakes. Batarang is an awesome move since its projectile can greatly influence the flow of the fight.
2. Bugs Bunny
“Eh… What’s up, doc?” An iconic cartoon character, Bugs Bunny is one of the oldest Warner Bros. mascots. Did you know that his first appearance is dated 1938? Bugs Bunny is even older than Batman! This carefree character has his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and it looks like he was born to be a character in video games.
But let’s talk about him in terms of Multiversus game balance. Unlike Batman, Bugs Bunny is not that easy of a character to play. He excels in ranged attacks (nothing new, considering he uses a lot of weapons from the Looney Tunes). This summons can deal a lot of control to the opponents. However, you are paying for it with lots of cooldowns. So, for Bugs Bunny players, timings are everything. You need to carefully manage your resources, and then you will succeed. Patience and observance are the keys to victory.
Oh, 1938 was a great year in terms of introducing legendary characters. Did you know that Superman is less than two weeks older than Bugs Bunny? But let’s move to the Multiversus since we all know who Superman is.
Superman is a tank with great weight stats and even greater mobility. His bread and butter are combo attacks and armour-breaking attacks. If you’re willing to transform the match into a slobber knocker, then Clark Kent is your choice.
4. Jake The Dog
While Batman and Bugs Bunny were loved by your grandparents, let’s look at someone who became popular rather recently. Adventure Time premiered in 2010 and in little time gathered a huge amount of fans all over the world. If you spent the last decade under the rock, then you should know that Adventure Time is a fantasy cartoon featuring the adventures of a boy called Finn and his best friend Jake — a dog with a shapeshifting ability. Both of these characters are featured in Multiversus, but it is Jake who is considered one of the strongest fighters in the game.
Like Batman, Jake the Dog is a bruiser who has decent stats. The difference comes from their playstyle. While Bruce Wayne is better in vertical skirmishes, Jake is more of a character who is dependent on spacing. The main problem is that all of Jake’s tricks can be easily studied. Quoting Sun Tzu: If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.” You need to play precisely and effectively in order to achieve victory.
5. Arya Stark
Finally, we have a great character for those of you who love mobility and deadly combos. Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee — this credo can be applied to the younger daughter of the Stark Family from A Song of Ice and Flames.
During the course of George R. R. Martin’s novels, Arya becomes a master assassin whose attacks are sudden yet deadly. This also found its reflection in Multiversus. Arya can fastly approach her opponents and confuse them by utilizing their own attacks thanks to the Face-Stealer special. She is a sharp character for sharp players.
There is nothing wrong in wanting to be the best. This competitive aspect of fighting games has given rise to an esports scene, with players from around the world competing in high-stakes tournaments for fame, glory, and cash prizes. That would not have happened if not for the players’ drive to be the best. Just remember two things: skewed game balance can’t replace player skill, and, second and most important, it is all just a game and don’t forget to have fun while playing!
