Jacob "Jake" the Dog, Sr is a Fighter from the Adventure Time Universe in MultiVersus. He was revealed alongside the game itself on November 18th, 2021, and is part of the game's initial release roster, having been playable since the first Tech Test.

Origin

Jake is one of the main protagonists of the 2010 Cartoon Network animated series Adventure Time and its related 2007 Nickelodeon animated short. He's an anthropomorphic dog/shape-shifter hybrid with magical Stretchy Powers that allow him to bend his body at will, allowing himself to change his own size and shape. He's Jermaine's biological brother, as well as Finn's adopted brother and best bud, with whom he lives in the Tree Fort. He's also dating Lady Rainicorn with whom he had five children.

Official Biography

Those Stretchy Powers are a trip, dude.

Website

As far as Jake knew, he just happened to be born with his magical Stretchy Powers. He would find out far later that he was actually the offspring of a shapeshifter named Warren Ampersand. But no matter where he came from, Jake has created a happy life for himself as a hero and adventurer with his best bud, Finn the Human. When he’s not adventuring and punching major bad guy buns, Jake likes to hang with his beloved girlfriend Lady Rainicorn and their five Dog/Rainicorn/Shapeshifter pups.[1]

In-Game

Jake's magical Stretchy Powers let him deal massive damage and surprise the heck out of his opponents on the battlefield. He loves to get in their faces and mess 'em up!

Default Variant

Jake's default look seems to be based on his modern design from Adventure Time.

Update History

1.05 Mid-Season Patch

Jake has been having a rough time since our official launch. With these changes we’re looking to make him feel more like an aerial bruiser and less like a bite-spammer.

    • * Fixed an issue where Jake could not hold special inputs using the right stick
  • Ground Neutral Attack
    • + Start-up window before charge reduced 6 frames. Start-up window after charge reduced 4 frames.

New Year Patch

  • - Ground Up Attack
    • Added 5 additional frames of commitment before Jake is able to dodge-cancel out of You Axe’d For It!. You Axe’d For It! is currently too safe and lacks any sort of commitment on Jake’s part. Our goal with this change is to help insure that this move has an appropriate risk-reward when players commit to using it.
    • Added 2 frames of whiff lag to You Axed For It!.

Spectator Mode Patch

Developer's Note: In the future, we'll be looking to add additional counterplay to the Jake's Air Down Special and Skateboard Combo. However, because of the short turnaround time of this patch we weren't able to address these issues at this point in time.

    • Recovery increased by 4 frames on whiff(miss).

Season 1.02 Patch

  • ~ Air/Ground Neutral Special:
    • If Jake eats multiple opponents, he will spit them all out on the first spit.
    • Spitting no longer counts towards air special count. Jake can aerial spit even if he has exhausted his air specials.
