- Gizmo's Promotional Poster[1]

Gizmo is a Fighter from the Gremlins Universe in MultiVersus. He was teased on September 1st, 2022 and was fully revealed and released on September 8th, 2022 (originally slated to release two days early), during the Open Beta period.[2]


Gizmo is a cute and kind Mogwai as well as one of the main protagonists of the Gremlins franchise. Originally owned by the Chinese antique shop owner Mr. Sam Wing, Gizmo now resides in New York alongside his new owners, Billy and Kate Peltzer. He's a big fan of the Rambo series, and has helped Billy defeat the evil Gremlins every time they tried bringing chaos upon their city.

Official Biography


Heroic Mogwai Warrior

When Gizmo heard that his malevolent off-spring Stripe had been pulled into the battle for the Multiverse, he followed immediately to stop him. Gizmo has always been a hero: Whether it was helping save Kingston Falls, averting the disaster at the Clamp Center, or any of the other adventures from his (surprisingly long) life, he has always been an unlikely protector of the innocent. With his box of tricks and mystical singing, he’s sure to throw a wrench in the works.[3]


Heroic Mogwai Warrior. Adorableness Incarnate.

Gizmo loves sharing his toys and helping his friends on the battlefield. He especially loves finding ways to mess up the other team's plans!

Default Variant

Gizmo's default look is largely based on his depiction from the original Gremlins movie duology, with a few tweaks here-and-there to match with his new design from the Max original Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai animated series.

Update History

1.06 Patch
  • Air/Ground Neutral Attack
    • * Fixed an issue where Gizmo’s fall speed was too high while charging an arrow
  • Ground Side Special
    • * Fixed an issue where Gizmo could permanently lose his jump after leaving his car

1.05 Mid-Season Patch Gizmo’s balance has looked much better after his nerfs in the 1.02 patch. We are hoping to address a few lingering issues with his arrow and car gameplay before we let the dust settle for a bit.

  • Air/Ground Neutral Attack
    • * Fixed an issue where Gizmo would get multiple jumps in air while charging an arrow
    • ~ Adjusted jump height during arrow charge to better match his normal jump heights.

    • ~ Increased attach radius to 575 units from 250 units; Gizmo should have an easier time snapping to his car or his allies without needing to precisely aim the attack

1.02 Patch

Gizmo’s maneuverability and size make him incredibly difficult to pin down. His movement combined with his incredibly strong zoning game make it nearly impossible for some characters to ever get the edge against him. These changes should help bring Gizmo’s evasiveness more in line with the cast so it’s easier for other characters to get up close and punish.

    • – Dodge branch window delayed 10 frames
    • – Prevents terrain bounce on knockback
  • Air/Ground Neutral Attack
    • – On-whiff branch window delayed 8 frames

New Year Patch

  • ! General
    • Fixed a bug where Gizmo could fall through the map if he got knocked back as he was attached to an ally

  • ! Ground Down Special:
    • Fixed a bug that was causing Gizmo's box to render some of the time

  • According to their in-game filenames, Gizmo and Stripe were originally supposed to be a duo character.
