Warner Bros platform fighter MultiVersus has loads of nice characters to select from, and developer Player First Games continues so as to add new ones to the roster. If a current trademark is to be believed, then everybody’s favourite huge Bugs Bunny meme might be arriving sooner or later.
You’ve possible seen him in a meme or two (or just simply within the picture on the prime of this text), however Big Chungus is a heftier model of Bugs Bunny first seen in a Looney Tunes cartoon that includes Elmer Fudd. Most lately, he’s been named in a trademark filed with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (as noticed by Eurogamer). The trademark, which covers the likes of video video games, tv, films, and merchandise, features a drawing of Big Chungus, and it’s possible supposed to put the groundwork for the heavy bunny’s inclusion in MultiVersus.
The query is whether or not Big Chungus might be a completely new character or just a pores and skin choice for Bugs Bunny, one among MultiVersus’ most quirky characters to play. Given the scale distinction between the 2 characters and the way in which game animation works, a separate character would appear to be the extra possible alternative. Big Chungus might stand beside different heavy hitters like Garnet and Batman.
It’s actually not the primary time MultiVersus has embraced a meme with its character roster. Scooby Doo’s Shaggy is playable largely due to the Ultra Instinct memes that he’s embodied in web posts in recent times. Morty from the beloved Rick and Morty is arguably a residing meme too.
This additionally wouldn’t be the primary time Warner Bros. has canonized Big Chungus in one among its works. The character makes a fast cameo in Space Jam: A New Legacy, which can be where MultiVersus will get its model of LeBron James. Big Chungus is a playable character within the cellular game Looney Tunes: World of Mayhem as properly, although it could appear each of those inclusions occurred earlier than a correct trademark was filed.
