Norville Rogers, better known by his nickname, Shaggy, is a Fighter from the Scooby-Doo 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

Norville "Shaggy" Rogers is one of the core, swaggy members of Mystery Inc., the amateurish crime-solving group of friends from the Scooby-Doo franchise. Shaggy, alongside other members of the Mystery Gang, was inspired by the four protagonists from the 1959-1963 sitcom The Many Loves of Dobie Gills, with his character being influenced by Maynard G. Krebs, though changed to be a more hippie-like character, rather than Maynard's beatnik archetype. Shaggy's overall moveset and personality in MultiVersus is heavily influenced by the famous Ultra Instinct Shaggy meme that began spreading across the internet in 2017. The memes featured Shaggy going "Super Saiyan", a reference to Shueisha's popular manga and anime series Dragon Ball. The meme itself was primarily uses scenes from the 2011 direct-to-DVD animated movie Scooby-Doo! Legend of the Phantosaur, in which a hypnotized Shaggy manages to beat up an entire biker gang all by himself.

Shaggy is a lanky, somewhat of a hippy, laid back and cowardice teenager with a monstruous hunger and love for Scooby Snacks. He's also well known for using the word "like" during his speeches a lot, being the owner and best friend of the titular Scooby-Doo, the talking Great Dane, and shouting "ZOINKS!" whenever he's scared.

Official Biography

Just a normal sandwich-munching, mystery-solving guy with limitless power of unknown origin.

The last thing Shaggy remembers before The Change was exploring another spooky old mansion with his pal Scoob, just like any other day with the gang. He found a strange glowing crystal and, thinking it was rock candy, went to take a bite. There was a FLASH… and then blackness. When he came to, he found himself in possession of incredible powers. He doesn’t know where they came from or how they work, but he’s vowed to use them to vanquish evil and protect the little guy. As soon as he gets some lunch, that is.[1]

Default Variant

Shaggy's default appearance seens to be based on his "dot-eyed" design he had in the Scooby-Doo shows made in the 70s and early 80s and in most Scooby-Doo movies and shorts created by Warner Bros. Animation from the 2010s onward.
