Most MultiVersus characters fight solo, but Tom & Jerry are a package deal. The slapstick comedy duo is the trickiest character to play in Warner Bros. crossover brawler. 

Tom & Jerry are rarely seen teaming up for a common goal, but whenever they join forces, it spells chaos. The cat and rat enter the wacky multiverse as a pair, ready to take on the likes of Batman, LeBron James, Superman, and more. While some may expect these cartoons to be easy to operate compared to the superheroes, Tom & Jerry are actually the toughest to handle. 

Tom and Jerry’s playstyle in MultiVersus 

Tom and Jerry MultiVersus

Tom and Jerry are slotted in the Mage class of MultiVersus, meaning their move set shines the most in long-range duels. Tom can toss abilities and deal damage from afar using a racket, a mousetrap, and even Jerry tied to a rocket. 

The duo has a range of primary ground and air attacks, which can make their kit feel confusing. But mastering their moves can bring a high win rate as they employ tricks and schemes to toss enemies out of the ring instead of straightforward punches. Besides being a viable Mage, the duo provides ample support to a teammate. Tom’s Jerry Projectile offers a unique “cheese” buff which makes teammates’ attacks do more damage.

The trick to nailing down move set is to stay back and use Jerry as ammo. Instead of running into the enemies, players must maintain a distance and lay down traps for them. Tom’s racquet is a handy ability which helps the pair make moves from afar. The melee attack can deal heavy damage and is also capable of reflecting enemy projectiles.

How to unlock Tom and Jerry in MultiVersus? 

Characters in MultiVersus can be unlocked quickly by feeding the game 3,000 Gold. However, players can still unlock the chaotic duo by playing the game for free. 

Gold is the only way to unlock special characters in MultiVersus. But 3,000 Gold, which translates to roughly 700 Gleamium, can take a lot of time to earn. Fortunately, players can still play Tom and Jerry by collecting Gold through introductory missions. Another way is to grind competitive matches, as custom games don’t reward Gold. Winning a match warrants bonus points, so players may want to practice their moves before starting a game. 

Best 2v2 teammate for Tom and Jerry in MultiVersus

The duo can seem impossible beat when paired with a Tank like Iron Giant or Wonder Woman. Their long-range attacks will tenderize enemies, helping a Tank toss them out of the map with stronger spells. A Bruiser may also fulfill the same purpose, helping Tom and Jerry come closer to victory.
