Thomas Jasper "Tom" Cat, Sr. and Gerald Jinx "Jerry" Mouse, commonly referred to as Tom Cat & Jerry Mouse or just Tom & Jerry, are a duo Fighter from the Tom and Jerry Universe in MultiVersus. They were revealed alongside the game itself on November 18th, 2021, and are part of the game's initial release roster, having been playable since the first Tech Test.

Origin

Tom & Jerry are the titular protagonists of the Tom and Jerry franchise. The famous cat-and-mouse duo were created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbara at MGM during the 1940s, and they were specifically designed to be rivals to one-another: Tom is an intelligent anthropomorphic cat who mainly wants to chase Jerry due to his job as a domestic feline, while Jerry is a carefree and cheeky anthropomorphic mouse who likes teasing the former and stealing food from Tom's owners' fridge. Despite this, there have been a few times where the two actually seemed to get along and like each other, earning them the title of frenemies.

Official Biography

When these frenemies put aside their differences, their zany mayhem can be unstoppable.

Website

Ever since they first laid eyes on each other, Tom and Jerry have had a complicated relationship. As a housecat and a mouse they should be mortal enemies, but the two have nonetheless teamed up many times over the years. Like many “toons,” Tom & Jerry fight with a zany, madcap style and display nearly indestructible levels of durability. They’ll be great champions to have in the battle against the Nothing so long as they can stop fighting each other long enough to do it.[1]

In-Game

Tom will go to any lengths to try and get his mousey nemesis. Learning to use that to your advantage will let you surprise your opponents with all sorts of unexpected attacks!

Default Variant

Tom & Jerry's default look is based on their late 40s/early 50s designs, which became the basis for most of their modern depictions in Tom and Jerry media.

Trivia

  • Despite being credited as their voice actor, Eric Bauza mainly voices Jerry, providing only the whistles for Tom, as all of Tom's screams are actually William Hanna's recycled recordings from the original Tom and Jerry shorts.
    • In the Open Beta Gameplay Trailer, an unused Tom scream performed by Eric can be heard, implying that he was originally meant to be the duo's sole voice actor.[2]
