Chance - 30%/95%/63%. I don't really have a lot to say here. The Dune movies have been very successful and very well received. It isn't Warner's biggest modern franchise (that goes to a certain other girl, from a certain other world), but it's very impressive for a series that was long thought "unfilmable". The Duniverse isn't opposed to crossovers either, there was a fortnite collab around the time Part One released. Really, there are only two reasons we wouldn't get Paul Atredies. One, the game dies before they get around to adding him, which is unfortunately possible. There haven't been any leaks or datamines hinting at him, so I can't give him a very high "coming soon" score. It's not zero, because truth be told the way this game spaces out it's characters is bizarre. Of the four new characters at launch, we had no idea three of them were even being considered. Either they somehow kept them under much tighter lock and key then characters like Beetlejuice and Raven, or they started and finished development after the beta. It's not impossible they rush Paul out the doors in a similar manner. I wouldn't count on it though. The second possiblility is that they pull an Agent Smith and prioritize a side character instead, but I'm not sure if they would do that. Paul isn't the most interesting fighter, but he has some interesting ideas (his Mentat abilities, Weirding Way fighting style, Precience, The Voice). They might do another Dune character at the same time, but it would probably be a Gremlins situation, and the Kwisatz Haderach would still find his way onto the Multiversus roster.

Want - 95%. I've read the first Dune book and watched the first movie (due to strange circumstances I haven't watched Part 2 yet), and I enjoyed both of them. I'd love to see content from the series in this game. Paul isn't my number one most wanted, but Arrakis is absolutely my most wanted stage. The setting and concepts in the books are so unique, and having Paul interact with characters from other series would be really fun to see.
Dune takes place in the deep, deep future. I'm fairly certain it's about ten thousand years from now, give or take. Paul has ancestral memory, so he won't be a complete fish out of water, but I still think it would be intresting to see him interact with characters who from his perspective might as well be cavemen. Aliens also don't really exist in dune, so seeing him react to Marvin and Superman would be neat. Robots are canonically illegal, so I wouldn't be suprised if he was actually terrified of the Iron Giant. And lastly, going back to the meme, I think him and Garnet would ****ing hate eachother. You have the alien thing, kind of the robot thing, but most importantly - future vision. Garnet used her future vision to change fate and stop a tyrant, Precience "forced" Paul to commit a mega-jihad. Those interactions would be fun.

ᑐᑌᑎᑕAN IDAHO

Chance - 2%/40%/21%

For those who have only watched the movies, choosing Duncan Idaho as the second Dune rep would be odd. Someone like Chani, Lady Jessica, or Baron Harkonnen would probably make more sense. Revealing why he would be a good choice requires spoilers for the other books in the series - potentially including Messiah, which will be what Villeneuve's third movie adapts. If you want a relatively low spoiler answer - he comes back in the fourth book. If you want a longer answer (but still really abridged) ...
Duncan Idaho is thoroughly killed in Part 1, it's not a fakeout. However, in the second book, a faction opposed to Paul's rise as emperor create a clone of Duncan. The clone has no memories of his previous life, is trained as a Mentat, and "given" to Paul to emotionally torment him and eventually kill him. However, the clone gets overwhelmed trying to kill Paul and regains his memories and they become buddies again. The second Duncan shows up in Children of Dune (Book 3), married to Paul's sister, and he dies halfway through that book. That's only the beginning for mister Idaho, though. In God Emperor Dune (Book 4), Leto II (Paul's son and also a worm) has a Duncan clone in his service for basically every moment of his three thousand year reign. Most of the Duncans try to kill Leto, but they fail and worm god kills him and orders a new one. Leto is doing this because he has super future vision and a plan to save humanity forever, and Duncan is both an essential part of that and a good barometer of how close he is to the goal. After about Duncan 75, Leto knows that his golden path is safe and lets Duncan kill him. Duncan and his new wife celebrate by having literal hundreds of babies. This Duncan presumably dies of natural causes. Dunes 5 and 6 take place a thousand years later, and for some god forsaken reason they keep making Duncan Idahos. I don't know a lot about these books, all I know is that this Duncan gains the memories of every Duncan that ever Dunked and is so hot he makes a woman spontaneously orgasm (dune gets weird).

To summarize - Very important in Dune 2, Kinda important in Dune 3, pretty much the main character of 4, and a side character in 5 and 6. I've only read the first book, but I've spoiled myself pretty thoroughly - I might still have gotten some of this wrong.

The tricky thing with Duncan is that his greatest advantage, staying relevant throughout the entire series, might not be relevant. Villeneuve has stated that he intends to quit at Messiah, the second book. I wouldn't be surprised if Warner and Legendary try to find someone to do some of the other books, but there's a chance they quit while they're ahead (things get weird fast). He also wouldn't be that unique from Paul. Maybe.

I took a melatonin before writing this so i'm struggling to keep writing. I might touch this up tomorrow. Noms to gwimbly.

Pointing out that a live service game has a limited lifespan by virtue of being a live service game, and thus saying how that will naturally affect likelihood, is perfectly valid to bring up in a game about rating the likelihood of characters.

No one here seems to remember that Dune isn't owned by WB and the company that does own it, Legendary Pictures, cut ties with them recently
If I remember correctly, Legendary and Warner came to an agreement: Dune and Monsterverse movies would still be distributed by Warner, but new IPs would be with Paramount or Universal (I forgot which).

So those scores are for both characters, right? And remember, if you want to give scores to two characters you have to write a total of 8 sentences at minimum.

Dune is a bit of a blind spot for me so I will simply abstain, and then put all of my nominations toward Tracy Turnblad again.

Okay Then

50%: I think there's a chance Dune can be added into Multiversus due to it's recent popularity and with the 2nd film likely being a success Legendary do want to focus on making more content for the series alongside Godzilla X Kong, however hearing legendary are the ones who owns the rights of the series it may be hard to say if Warner Brothers can get it in Multiversus with good negotiations or not, i think Legendary are willing to produce new dune movies with the company so there's a chance that WB can ask if they're willing to let Paul & other dune specific content be in Multiversus.

Abstain: I haven't watched the dune movies and i have been wanting to get around watching them, but with how i treat my time schedule everyday, currently watching other films & shows, and worrying a little about the movies' long hour timeframe it makes me difficult for me to sit down to watch the series.

I may also worry about a lack of interest since that's usually what keeps me from trying to complete something or watch something and it wounds up taking years until i finally get to it, so there's that.

My Nominations
-Prohyas & Vambre(1X)
-Kazuma & Co.(1X)
-My Adventures with Superman Content(1X)
-Higan(1X)

Note: Upon writing this i just found out that Herbert Properties is the owner of the franchise, can anyone please explain to me what that is and what it could mean for dune in multiversus?

I promise you all I will update the calcs for the Godzilla/Kong and Dune days tomorrow. I'm just sleepy at the moment but I wanted to get some words in.

Chance:
Paul - 25%
Duncan - 15%

I don't think I need to reiterate just how important Dune is to the sci-fi genre in general. In short, a lot of sci-fi media today including things like Star Wars owes a lot to Dune. Now ever since we've rated Paul the first time, Dune Part Two has come out and did excellent in terms of reviews and the box office. With Dune Messiah being announced for a film adaptation, Dune has cemented itself as, dare I say it, one of the staple film series of this decade.

Now again, I'm being skeptical when it comes to third parties and unlike Godzilla and Kong, we don't have a ton of collaborations to determine if Dune would be an affordable IP to obtain. The only collab I've seen is the Dune expansion for Microsoft Flight Simulator, which is obviously from a completely different company and dev team so there is some uncertainty there. However, with how huge Dune is right now, I can definitely see Player First Games putting in the effort to try to get the rights to it.

As for Paul, well I don't see why they wouldn't go for him right away. But for Duncan? He's a bigger question mark. I can see Dune getting two characters down the line, but I'm not certain if Duncan would be the second choice with how big Dune's cast is.

Want:
Paul - 95%
Duncan - 75%

I haven't read the books yet, but I absolutely adore the films. Denis Villeneuve is a fantastic director, one of the best currently working in the industry right now. He created two movies so far that have so much life and personality to them. He did the monumental task of taking a book as ambitious and highly detailed as Dune and made some truly cinematic experiences that are beginner-friendly, riveting, and downright amazing. If you haven't seen the Dune films yet, I cannot recommend them enough.

So if it wasn't clear enough, heck yeah I want Dune in MultiVersus. There is so much potential for the stage with possible sandworm hazards and the characters lend themselves well to a fighting game. Paul is a very good protagonist and I think Duncan is very cool.

Before I start talking about anyone rated today, I should bring up the elephant in the room: Rooster Teeth's closure. My ratings are under the assumption that WB somehow keeps the IPs for themselves, even though they don't deserve them.

It's Fun To Stay With R-W-B-Y!
Chance: 70%
That said, if there are any characters from RT in MultiVersus, they'll be from this series in particular. First of all, we have four title characters to choose from in a game that now has four different classes to work with. A game that, mind you, still has a 2-v-2 mode in it. Second, and this goes hand-in-hand with my first tidbit, there are multitudes of characters to choose from. Third, RWBY as a franchise is popular enough to cross over with the Justice League, and somehow relevant enough to get its two-part direct-to-video movie finished despite all the setbacks at each WB subsidiary. Heck, you could just make a RWBY fighting game in and of itself if you wanted.

Cola Wars: The Webseries
Chance: 40%
Next to RWBY, Rooster Teeth's crown jewel is Red vs. Blue, a machinima series that uses assets from the Halo series. I deem this as less likely than RWBY on that asset usage alone. Despite that, Microsoft needs an advantage in the console market, so I propose this to them: You can allow Player First Games to use Halo assets for RvB purposes, provided you also put one of your cartoony characters in here as a console exclusive. Banjo, Conker, Crash, Spyro, Pitfall Harry, Cuphead, Ori, Blinx. As long as it's not one of your Bang Bang McShooties, an Xbox exclusive MultiVersus character would entice Xbox sales in some way.

DEATH BATTLE!!!
Chance: 15%
Death Battle might be the riskiest Rooster Teeth property to get into MultiVersus. This is primarily due to its usage of licensed characters, not just those owned by WB. To add onto this, Wiz and Boomstick themselves rarely appear onscreen in the series. What could they do in MultiVersus as fighters? Perform moves based on characters that didn't get in? Just make them into announcer packs and call it a night.

Wants:
RWBY rep: 60%
RvB rep: 55%
Wiz and Boomstick: 45%

I might not know much about Rooster Teeth or their properties besides pop culture osmosis, but even I'd like to see these shows make it into the game at some point. The general consensus of a game like this goes as such: The more, the merrier.

Chance: 85%
She's in the datamines, not much else from there. I'm pretty sure WB still owns the IP currently, and even if they sold it off she could probably survive off of grandfathering. The characters all have a leg up from already being combatants and a team, as well as MVS seeming to want to double down on cartoo-uh, sorry, animation. I can't help but wonder if they'd fill out all 4, but that's a question for another day.

Goku has died multiple times, Garfield hasn't even bled
Chance: 4%
I was actually thinking of going higher than this, but then I realised this is for playable Wiz and Boomstick, not announcer packs or a story NPC, and uuhhh... yeah, I can't see it. Most people who have watched Death Battle don't even realise that Wiz and Boomstick have physical forms, and while you could come up with fun original movesets for them, "hillbilly" and "scientist" aren't exactly character types in short supply within the WB catalog. I have a feeling using Wiz and Boomstick in a commercial product with actual-licensed non-parody-protected IP could prove... risky. Not impossible, certainly not illegal, but they'd have to be very careful when making references to Death Battle moments and quotes specifically.

The Cold War
Chance: 0%
I was originally going to give this as high a score as RWBY based on Master Chief being leaked to be considered and these two being easy alts... the problem being that well, the way MVS handles skins is that each character has a red version and a blue version... When you have two characters that's main visual difference are their colours, and themselves are based heavily on a base character, I don't see it. Even if they weren't Chief variants, this is a borderline-impossible hurdle to overcome

RWBY Rep

Chance: 85%

A RWBY rep have a biggest chance of have a rep on MultiVersus, by Ruby was mentionated on leaked character's dialogues and there's a crossover with Justice League.

Want: 20%

One of my biggest pick is Ruby Rose,but she is on 9th place, on my wanted character, and i just watched the Volume 1 and videos who RWBY was ruined

Red VS Blue Rep

Chance: 5%

A Red VS Blue rep is......uh.....,i don't know how will be work on Multiversus,also the characters are based on Halo's spartans,but if them go to the game,i wonder how Microsoft will think about this,i believe that Microsoft can sue Warner

Want: 0%

I never was fan of Red VS Blue,and that could be so hard of adding them on Multiversus as i said

Wiz & Boomstick

Chance: 10%

that could be good of having Wiz & Boomstick on the franchise,but i don't know how could be their moveset,like,Warner franchises references are good choice,and while other non-Warner franchises?,like as one of them using a BFG9000 from Doom, a keyblade from Kingdom Hearts, an infinity gaunlet from Marvel and other non-Warner items?,maybe they will make parody of this items for don't have copyright issues,and they works as an kind of assists or NPC

Want: 25%

Death Battle is my favorite webseries,i follow this series since season 2,and it's will be complicated of they using pop culture weapons as moveset base, and how will works

RWBY Time

Chance - 95%
Well...it's hard to argue with the datamines. It's especially hard to argue with a datamine as thorough and complete as this one. I left five percent up in the air in case SOMETHING goes wrong late in the game, but realistically I don't see that happening now, and instead Ruby will get in as foretold. For the sake of adding something fresh to this take, I figure I'll also rank how likely I see the rest of Team RWBY beyond Ruby, for fun. I think Weiss, Yang, and Blake, in descending order, would be the next three. Which is, admittedly, a bit sad for me because Blake is my favorite lol.

Want: 80%
I only watched RWBY up until they stopped posting the episodes on YouTube because I didn't want to make a Rooster Teeth account. Yes I'm that guy, I'm sorry. But I did enjoy it quite a bit. Ruby herself isn't my preferred scythe wielder for this game (that would be Grim), but she's a likeable character who could have some really fun dialogue.

Wiz and Boomstick

Chance: 10%
I'll be real, I don't see these two happening. They're in a weird spot where a major multimedia corporation technically owns a fan made parody series that, by its nature, could lead to copyright infringement suits if they try to profit off of it. Granted, I'm not a lawyer, but at the very least nothing about these two's designs in particular is suitworthy, so if they were to focus on the general idea of Death Battle it would be fine. The other big kick to their odds, imo, is that their ownership specifically seems...up in the air? Because apparently the team are going to keep making it after Rooster Teeth went under? So I'm not sure. There's also the fact that while they may be the most requested non-RWBY RT characters...that's not saying much. They're basically the only other RT characters that get any requests.

Want: 70%
I'll admit, I'd like this just because of how silly it is. Imagine a special move where they would run calcs and give themselves buffs to fight better. Imagine Wiz summoning 18 septillion kilotons of TNT to hit Superman for 10%. Imagine Boomstick no-selling Iron Giant's lasers because he calced his durability at surviving 48 atomic bombs. Conceptually them being here is just very funny in a meta sense.

Red vs Blue

Chance: 0%
This will never happen and I'm fairly confident in saying that. Yes, it's incredibly iconic. Yes, it's one of Rooster Teeth's big three. But like...it's also an absolute legal nightmare. I talked above about how the concept of Death Battle could present issues for the legal department if they use it in something as high profile as this, but at least with that, Wiz and Boomstick have original designs that are lawyer safe. Red vs Blue does not have that. They're just...the Halo Spartan design in two non-green colors. The sheer legal minefield here would be too much to even consider, more than likely.

Want: 0%
This isn't because I dislike them. I recognize their influence on Internet culture and know a ton of people like the series. I've...actually just never seen it, unlike with the two above. Unironically the only thing I know about it is the reveal that Sarge is Boomstick's father, as seen in the Death Battle episode Kool-Aid Man vs Macho Man Randy Savage.

Putting all...thirty, I think? nominations toward Tracy Turnblad.

REST IN PEACE, ROOSTER TEETH.

RWBY Rep
Chances: 40%

I recall giving a few potential RWBY reps fairly high chances with Ruby herself getting a 75%. With Rooster Teeth being shut down, the chances of any RWBY character getting into Multiverses has gone down significantly. There is a silver lining though. Supposedly dataminers did find Ruby Rose within Multiverses' code suggesting she will be added the game eventually. While Ruby could make it, I don't see any other RWBY making the cut.

Want: 65%

Most of the points I made during Ruby's day still hold. While I still think she should be presented as her classic self, she has gotten more material and costumes to work with. The quality of the later volumes did hurt her character in my eyes. Don't get me starter with those weird DC crossover movies.

Red vs Blue Rep
Chances: 2%

Most of my points regarding a RVB rep (particularly Caboose) still stand now with the shutdown of Rooster Teeth being a new hurdle. The one saving grace the Reds and Blues have was that their show was allowed to end on their own terms. Aside from that, I don't see them joining the MultiVerses roster outside of a cameo which might be coming (based on rumors).

Want: 100%

Red vs Blue is one of earliest webshows I fell in love with. The first 14 seasons were fantastic and Restoration was a fitting sendoff. It would be amazing if Reds and Blues were playable in MultiVerses regardless of how unlikely it would be.

Wiz & Boomstick
Chances: 0.5%

Ironically the one series that could escape the death of Rooster Teeth intact is the one that no longer has any real chance at getting into Multiverses. Death Battle created by Screwattack, not Rooster Teeth; the latter just bought the former. Death Battle was already in a weird spot as it used many properties that WB doesn't own. The only reason I'm not giving a flat zero is most people don't realize Wiz and Boomstick do have quite a bit of material to construct a moveset. Not to mention the creators of Death Battle have stated multiple times the final Death Battle would be Wiz vs Boomstick (which sorta happened in the final Death Battle Cast.) Not to mention many people think they would work well as announcers. With the creators of Death Battle currently looking for a new partner, Wiz and Boomstick likely will never show up in MultiVerses.

Want: 100%

Out of all of Rooster Teeth's properties, Death Battle is the one I have the most attachment to. I've been watching the series practically from its inception starting with its first episode "Boba Fett vs Samus Aran". Wiz and Boomstick are the glue that holds the show together. Even if they don't show up as fighters, it would cool if they were announcers for MultiVerses.

REST IN PEACE, ROOSTER TEETH.

RWBY Rep
Chances: 40%

I recall giving a few potential RWBY reps fairly high chances with Ruby herself getting a 75%. With Rooster Teeth being shut down, the chances of any RWBY character getting into Multiverses has gone down significantly. There is a silver lining though. Supposedly dataminers did find Ruby Rose within Multiverses' code suggesting she will be added the game eventually. While Ruby could make it, I don't see any other RWBY making the cut.

Seems i'm not the only one who thinks Ruby may be the only one that'll be in Multiversus.

Also, where did the leaks say that a Red Vs. Blue Reference was present?

Godzilla
Chance: 39%
Want: 90.9%

King Kong
Chance: 41.11%
Want: 89.44%

Paul Atreides
Chance: 52.6%
Want: 78.75%

Duncan Idaho
Chance: 31.2%
Want: 48.33%

So, there is a lot going on here. First, chance scores have dropped significantly for some characters, which isn't a surprise as confidence in MultiVersus has dipped and third party characters in general are still a question mark.

Godzilla got a good boost in want, making him the thread's 7th most wanted character and his inclusion in the Top 10 means that Static has been booted off into 11th place. His chance score is the one that didn't dip too much, interestingly enough. Kong on the other hand, not only dropped a lot in chance, but also decreased slightly in want, placing him at #10 for most wanted, which is still impressive!

Finally, Paul's chances have plummeted, which means that Sub-Zero is now #10 for chance. But as for want, he actually got a small increase which can be attributed to Dune's increasing popularity.

"Victory is in a simple soul!"-Theme Song of RWBY Vol. 1
RWBY
Theme: This Will Be The Day
40%: RWBY, one of the most well known anime series on the internet, The series was made by the late Mounty Oum and is one of Rooster Teeth's most popular franchise. The series has a total of 9 seasons currently, 5 spin-offs, couple of books including manga, video games, and even a crossover with the Justice League not just in comics but a two parter movie series too.

Warner Brothers bought the parent company for RWBY alongside every asset they have which made the series become accounted for under the warner brother's brand, giving some recognition to the series, releasing the series on dvd(in japan), and of course the after mention crossover with DC's superheroes of the Justice League, with how much the company did for the show it would make sense for RWBY to appear in Multiversus right?

Well maybe during the beta years of the game however recently this year WB has decided to shutdown rooster teeth due to their financial troubles over the years, and with the studios' termination their parent company opted to sell three of their most popular series to other studios which includes RWBY, as of right now the people who made the show a.k.a CRWBY has said they found a company who's willing to buy the series and keep them at the helm of production, while it doesn't mean the series has been sold off yet there's already a company planning to take it in, with this possibility it might mean WB is already cutting ties with RWBY making any characters' chances appear in the game hopeless.

Well.....that is until the leaks came through.

During the new datamine discovery on Multiversus' relaunch many leakers found which characters has some stuff that suggested who's coming to the game and One of those characters was the leader of their team & main protagonist, Ruby Rose.
There's a stinger for her name, another one for her series, profile icons & a ringout for her series, and interactions found from rick talking to her. All this with leakers like Papagenos claiming that there are no plans for her to be removed may mean ruby could get in sometime in the future.

While this is good news for a character and the series being in Multiversus, it's likely that'll be the only representation the game will offer. The series is still going to be sold off most likely and with a buyer being brought up warner could still sell it to them which wouldn't make them own the show anymore, plus if they were to keep said RWBY content in the game they need to continue paying the other company to continue using little red and what other RWBY stuff is in it otherwise they'll just choose not to & we get a stranger things x dead by daylight situation were the series is unavailable to get in anymore purchases of Multiversus or Worse, But if whoever buys RWBY is in good contacts with Warner Brothers or are under their brand as a sister company then perhaps maybe they'll put more content in the game.

There is a future lining for RWBY in Multiversus but it depends on what happens, Only time will tell.

Alt Theme: I Burn
50%: Personally for me, i've only watched RWBY Volume 1 and Chibi officially,i also seen a review of Ice Queendom to get to know how that show turned out too i didn't watch the rest of the volumes and i honestly prefer not to follow what happens later on.

But i have seen some fanmade content from the series and they've tend to be better then what the main series has done so i hope it counts for me knowing the series even if it's not enough, as for how i see it getting into multiversus, i still think that if RWBY does get in based on the datamines they might just settle with only Ruby and what they bring with her, i would've prefer seeing both her & yang join the game but i'm okay with what may come.

But if they do continue getting more RWBY then that's fine by me, i'm just hoping they make their classic counterparts be their main defaults with their later appearances as costumes.

"Hey" "Yeah?"
"You ever wonder why we're here?"-Grif and Simmons
Red Vs. Blue
Theme: Blood Gulch Blues
5%: Roses are red and violets are blue, one day i'll cruise down the molbery blues, it's red versus red, and blue versus blue, it's i against i and me against you...

Red Vs. Blue, another popular series from Rooster Teeth and one of their first ever series made, Red Vs. Blue is a fanmade web show that takes the models and world of Halo within their own games making a different story about these soldiers in a boxed canyon trying to kill each other in war but just taking things slow, goofing off, and getting into random events that changes their lives in the end.

The series lasted for 18 Seasons, ended with a single movie, has plenty of spin-offs, PSA's, Merchandise, and some recognition from the halo series itself too(with an easter egg that includes some of the voice actors, some references in other games, and an apparent fortnite crossover were the reds meet master chief, THE master chief), While it was fanmade series at first, the show had numerous DVD and Blue-Ray's distrubuted & released in stores before, has been shown on streaming services such as FilmRise & Amazon Prime, and even on TV once at the El Ray Network. this is all very shocking for a webseries that's based on existing characters to the point were it makes it feel like an official tv series.

Though with Rooster Teeth shutting down WB is selling away Red Vs. Blue as one of the main popular franchises for them to give to another company meaning it's chances of getting into Multiversus has fallen down and unlike RWBY, RVB is a fanmade series that used Halo for their characters and world so they'd have to get Microsoft to let their likeness be referenced with Red Vs. Blue, which might not be possible since i heard 343 Industries wouldn't let them for their own reasons & they would likely need to be involved aswell for Halo's rights.

The only reason why it's not lower to 0% is because someone mentioned a Red Vs. Blue Reference for Ruby so maybe the show won't be ignore in Multiversus but it also won't make any appearances either.

Alt Theme: Contact
70%: Even if the series is no longer getting into Multiversus, i still would've want to see characters from Red Vs. Blue appear more specifically Sarge & i guess Caboose too.

The series was good to watch and i liked seeing the jokes play out, the characters being good, and the action being entertaining aswell, Season 10 was an amazing end to the freelancer arc and the chorus trilogy was an amazing aftermath, Restoration ended up being the true ending for the series and it was okay, but i still remember having a good time watching Red Vs. Blue and i wish to atleast remember those times to cherish while moving forward.

Also, i liked some of the songs including Blood Gulch Blues, The Zealots Theme, The Fight with Meta, and Contact.

"Alright, The Combatants are all set and we ran the data through all possibilities" "It's Time for a DEATH BATTLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!"-Wiz & Boomstick
Wiz & Boomstick
Theme: Wiz & Boomstick
0%: DEATH BATTLEEEEEEE!!!!!! one of my favorite webseries of all time, this is the show that came from screw attack originally before being bought out by Rooster Teeth and later become part of the company after the former went under in 2018.

The Action Web Show were they pit various characters in a fight to the death ran for 10 seasons, three spin-offs, and a long attention spam on the internet for two decades making it one of the most popular series on the internet, However it being under Rooster Teeth aswell as Warner Brothers at the time. the company did influence death battle a bit with making episodes come true like Johnny Cage Vs. Captain Falcon & Scooby-Doo! Vs. Courage the Cowardly Dog and they've gotten to advertise HBO Max & some of their movies such as The Matrix: Revolution, Wonder Woman 1984, and Black Adam too.

But once again with the companies shutdown and despite not being one of the main shows being sold, Death Battle is currently trying to negotiate a new deal with a company to keep the show afloat and with rooster teeth being gone with the show being unable to be sold to a company for MANY legal reasons, the show is pretty much down to 0% immensiley decreasing Wiz & Boomstick's chances of getting in the game even as announcers.

Alt Theme: Super (Goku Vs. Superman(2023))
40%: I love this show, i used to hate it at first due to not wanting to see characters i know &/or love get killed in a bloody fashion but then i got intrigued by the speculation scene and the quality improvement of the series that i wounded up ended enjoying the show, the music for the fights, the animation overtime, the end transitions, the coverage of characters i like, and the influence the show has for introducing or making me learn more about the characters.

Death Race was also a fun show and one i might like more than DBX & Desk of Death Battle.

i'm hoping the series does return too because they have their victor of the tournament of champions to be given a proper episode aswell as some other ideas that are due to be covered on the show eventually, and while it may be nice to have Wiz & Boomstick in a fighting game i don't have that feeling of wanting them in Multiversus anymore, with the show now departed from rooster teeth & searching for a new home to follow there's no reason for it be in the game now, I usually imagine a Death Battle fighting of it's own with all the characters they've covered & more, while there is a fanmade idea of that already i like to make up my own with smash bros' style of platforming to make it more fun but still understand the style of 2D fighting games still being a preferred style.

While it may be a really cool idea to have the show represented in the game it's not very likely anymore.

They're both half in, so that adds up to a 100% chance.
1717705568474.png
1717705606535.png



Chance - 90%/90%/90%. Let's not beat around the bush: She, and her series, have references in the code. She's happening. There are other characters with more complete data (Samurai Jack, Aquaman, the PPG, etc., so she probably won't happen this season or next, but I have very little doubt she'll release by this time next year. The situation with Rooster Teeth is very unfortunate, don't get me wrong, but I don't get why it would make them scrap her. She almost assuredly started development before the announcement of closure (she's a fairly popular character from a fairly popular series), and while the lack of new content isn't great, there's still enough RBWY for her inclusion to make sense. AFAIK, WB still owns the rights, and if they sell I doubt it would go to a major competitor like Disney or Amazon (unlike the situation with Embracer and LOTR). The potential buyer would probably be someone like Glitch Studios, who would have no reason to say no to this (especially because a good chunk of the work is already done). I've seen people say it's disrespectful to "mutilate the corpse" of the series by putting it in Multiversus, but honestly? I think it would be disrespectful not to finish her, to not give RBWY a last hurrah.

American Politics

Chance - 0%\0%\0%. I don't have a lot to say here. While I think the closure of Rooster Teeth doesn't affect Ruby all too much, because she already started development, I think it screws over basically everything else. Starting development on a character that's either done with new content or soon to be third party is a tough sell, especially when most of these characters weren't too likely in the first place. If I rated this before the unfortunate news, I can't imagine I would give this idea more than a 5%. The biggest hurdle is that the characters are reskinned Master Chiefs. Getting the approval of one of the biggest companies in the world to exclusively use a parody of their character... seems like a tough sell. Best case scenario, they add the actual Master Chief and added these two as skins, but I don't think he's particularly likely either.

I DONT HAVE A QUIP FOR THIS ONE

Chance - 1%\1%\1%. Similar situation here. Death Battle is very iconic online, but even when the series was a fully Warner-owned property, the idea of Wiz and Boomstick being playable was a long shot. There's just so much competition. When you factor in the closure of Rooster Teeth/Screw Attack... it's almost assuredly not happening. I'm giving the pair slightly higher scores for two reasons. one, they aren't reskinned versions of other video game characters. Two, and this is kind of a reach, but Wiz could maybe be made a skin for Rick? I wouldn't count on it, especially when there isn't a good character for Boomstick to copy and having one without the other would be odd, but it gives this score a very slim boost. If this was for announcer packs this would probably be much higher, even in spite of the closure.

Abstaining on want for all three. I've never watched RWBY or RVB, and I haven't watched a ton of Death Battle. I do hope somebody buys the rights to the Rooster Teeth catalogue and continues all three series, though. What Warner did was extremely dissapointing. Half of my noms to Gwimbly, the other half to Swamp Thing.

Also, can we take "concept: bryan cranston" off the noms list? It's a Walter White rerate in all but name, which was what the thread was for the better part of a year. I don't think we need to rate him again, at least not this soon.

Reds and Blues, a never-ending conflict.

Chance: 0%

Although Red vs Blue was Rooster Teeth's flagship series, it was a machinima made using the Halo video game series. Microsoft gave Rooster Teeth a fair use agreement to use Halo related elements in the show. If the series were to be represented in Multiversus, WB would need a new agreement regarding the Halo series. Even then, most of the iconic characters are color variants of Master Chief, so it might be easier to just go for him if Halo were to ever be represented.

Want: 30%

It would be cool to see Rooster Teeth's first show represented in a crossover. However, the licensing makes it effectively impossible. The only way I see Red Vs Blue getting representation is if there's a KO effect with a few notes of the show's title theme playing. Otherwise, the show is likely never getting anything.


A battle to the death?

Chance: 0%

Copyrights once again strike another Rooster Teeth choice. Unlike the previous series, this one's easier to avoid, just use the two hosts, Wiz and Boomstick. It should be noted that WB has not expressed interest in selling the show (unlike RWBY, Red vs. Blue, and Gen: Lock). However, the show is hopeful they will continue in some form post Rooster Teeth.

Want: 5%

The Want Score I gave is if the characters were announcer packs, as I feel that is a perfect role for Wiz and Boomstick. Sadly, with Rooster Teeth's shutdown, even that seems unlikely. As playable characters, I feel the chances of that are even lower. And with the company shutdown, I feel it is too late for them.


RWBY Rep

Chance: 90%

Prior to Rooster Teeth shutting down, I had Ruby Rose as one of my most wanted. Once the company was announced to be closing, I recognized time had won and Ruby would not be joining.

And then the game came out.

The game not only had multiple cosmetics for RWBY as a whole, but the franchise is listed as a playable universe. The icing on the cake was Pickle Rick having voicelines when fighting Ruby herself. Suddenly my hopes are back. However, there is a small feeling that the work has been paused or even cancelled because of the shutdown. I am hopeful that Ruby comes out. On a related note, with the shutdown, I think Ruby might be the only RWBY rep (and the only Rooster Teeth content as a whole)

Want: 100%

Even before Multiversus I was a RWBY fan. I always enjoyed the character designs and the combat scenes. After having played Blazblue Cross Tag Battle, I easily hoped RWBY would get into Multiversus. Plus, I felt the world was perfect for in game content.

Weeeee.....arree...lightning...striking from the thunder!!

Chance: 60%

I wish we had gotten news on RWBY's legal situation before this day happened, but alas. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel:

Ruby got partially datamined **** yeah! With this, we know that the team has her in mind and there is a decent possibility she has had some work done on her. With this in mind, I think she could happen regardless, hopefully. If Warner Bros keeps the property, they may allow the team to add her since the progress on her could very well be halfway there anyway, I'm putting a lot of confidence into this. And if WB sells RWBY, negotiations can happen to keep her in.


Overall, there is still some unknown factors at play here, but I'm willing to maintain my confidence here. It feels like the universe is playing with us RWBY fans, but as history has shown, we will push forward.

Want: 1,000,000% (Don't worry, that will be counted as a 100. I'm not invincible even as the thread owner)

I can't express how much I love RWBY. Is the show flawed? Yes, and I do have my grievances with some things. But regardless I still love it to death. I love the characters, the weapons are awesome, the music is sick, and it got me through a tough couple weeks. I haven't played MultiVersus for several days now due to losing interest in it for multiple reasons, but if this did happen, it would definitely bring me back to it.

_______________________

Ultraman R/B....oh wait nevermind not them

Chance: 1%

Again, the Rooster Teeth situation makes this more complicated. But I do think Red vs Blue could happen, theoretically. If it does come down to it, they could get the rights to use Halo content, however that presents two obstacles. One, the costs to obtain the license could be too high, frankly I'm not familiar how many other games (aside from Fortnite) managed to get Halo content so this is a big question mark. And two, if you are gonna get the rights to use Halo content, then you minus as well as get Master Chief instead.

Want: 50%

Aside from the Death Battle episodes, I have no connection with Red vs Blue, and even with Halo in general I've only played a little bit of the first game and that's it. So I don't care how they manage the whole legal lasagna with this one since I don't have a horse in this race. If it happens? Cool. If it doesn't? No sweat from me.

__________________________

Wiz/Boomstick

Chance: 6%

So this one is a bit weird. Last time I checked WB didn't say if they were selling this IP so it could happen and I do think some people have the wrong idea here. Wiz and Boomstick do have original characters they present on-screen as themselves, and those characters have plenty of gags from within the show itself and side material to make for movesets without relying on third party content.

The problem here is priority. Will WB allow someone from the inside to pick up the show again? That's a major if, and honestly considering the leadership I doubt it. In that case, it is a harder sell to try to get these two into the game when the selection seems biased towards characters with upcoming content. Plus, I do agree with people that they work better as announcers.

Want: 80%

I am a casual fan of Death Battle who has watched the show on and off for many years since the very early seasons. I do enjoy the show and have learned a lot about various characters, even if some of the episodes have piss poor research and certain characters have been botched by them. But they do have some awesome episodes like Godzilla vs Gamera, Galactus vs Unicron, and in general many episodes from the past few seasons have been really solid.

Wiz and Boomstick also have a really entertaining dynamic with each other and while this rating is for if they become playable, I would be happy to see them as either full-fledged characters or as announcers.

Getting this in last minute

Chance - 95%
RWBY itself is a popular show with a large fandom and brings an anime style character to the roster, without needing to work with potentialy expensive overseas companies for licencing. However, a few weeks ago this rating would have been much lower. Rooster Teeth has been killed as part of David Zazlev's currently on going gutting of Warner Bros as a company. The fate of RWBY as a franchise is up in the air with roumors it may be getting sold. I almost certainly would have given this a rating in the single didgets. But as of relaunch things have changed once again. Ruby is in the files. She has multiple lines referring to her and the series has multiple pieces of content. She seems pretty far along. The only reason I 'm not giving it a full one hundred is to account for the possibility that she may have been cut after the shut down, but with how far along she seems to be and everything we've been hearing, I really don't see that being the case.

So RBWY is pretty much close to a lock. Could we see someone after Ruby herself? It's certainly possible. This game is all about team ups and pairings. I feel Weiss (was given the second rep spot in BBTag) or Yang (Extremely popular) are the most likely picks. I don't see us getting all four though. I simply don't know if the series is big enough for that. I think the by far most likely outcome is that we just get Ruby though.

Want - 80%
Not a huge fan of this series. I watched the first couple series as they went out and thought they where fine enough as "budget web original series trying desperately to be anime" goes. I just fell off of it and never really had the interest in going back to it. It's something I like much more in concept than execution. I do think a sytce user in a game like this could be really cool and the magic system from RWBY could lend itself really well to a fun moveset. I know it'd make people happy if she got in so I'll give her a high rating.

Abstain from the other two. don't have much to say

You take the red pill, you remain in Wonderland...
Chance: 40%
Neo is one of the main characters of The Matrix Universe, if not the main one. Plus, MultiVersus has implications within their 2-v-2 gameplay, like Batman and Joker teaming up, Gizmo interacting with Stripe, or the mere viability of Tom and Jerry. I think getting Neo in as Agent Smith's "buddy", for lack of a better term, would be a good idea. But here's the thing: We technically don't even have Agent Smith in the game yet, so it might be a while before we get Neo.

Want: 65%
I might not have seen The Matrix or its sequels, but even I know how cool Neo is as a character. As such, I'd be on board for a second Matrix rep.

You bow to no one.

The history of Gandalf in MultiVersus is a strange one. Initially leaked before the game was even given a trailer, headliner for New Line Cinema's golden goose, but the Middle-Earth properties were sold off to Embracer Group with WB keeping some adaptation rights to them. But now, it looks like things are coming up tulips for Gandalf to finally appear in the game at some point. Just not in the new Season 1, which seems to focus on villains this time around.

Want: 80%
Multiply my awareness of Neo by 50, and you have my want for Gandalf in this game. Heck, even without seeing Lord of the Rings, getting one of the top dogs of nerd culture, something which WB themselves had some hand in, would be a big sell to the majority crowd. In fact, we could even use this to promote the LOTR anime movie coming soon.

Noms to Colonel Rimfire.

Neo

Chance: 90%

i think is very obvious of Neo joins in MultiVersus, Matrix is a iconic movies series on Warner history, the game have Agent Smith and i think they he can joins into the game

Want: 55%

i'm not a biggest fan of Matrix,but i saw that the movies is very referencied, is very iconic, is very talked on 2000s, have animation parodies on internet, and Neo is a good pick as a second rep

Gandalf

Chance; 75%

Gandalf is a good pick for Lord of The Rings rep,and could be more or less obvious, and interesting

Want: 50%

again, i'm not a fan of Lord of The Rings, but i saw that this franchise is very popular,also Gandalf appears in both LoTR trilogy and The Hobbit trilogy, that could be the importance of him

norms: a Doom Patrol content, Spawn (again)

Neo

Chance: 50%
I absolutely think The Matrix is something that would easily get a second character if the devs were able to do so. And Neo would obviously be the next one. But the fact that Neo wasn't the first one makes me wonder if he was a no-go. It's possible that Keanu's likeness wasn't obtainable, for example, as Neo pretty much never appears in Matrix things that don't have the direct involvement of the Wachowskis. So it's a toss up...a straight 50/50 in my eyes.

Want: 85%
I mean...it's Neo! He's cool as all hell and iconic to match. But at the same time, I totally understand if licensing rights could get in the way, so I wouldn't be TOO eaten up about it.

Gandalf

Chance: 80%
Gandalf's data was readded to the files in a way that implies he's back in active development. I'm still leaving 20% just in case something happens AGAIN, but...odds are looking good here. The fact that they had to completely change the engine and yet his data is STILL back is a wonderful sign in my opinion. The fact that the Samurai Jack stage is also no longer Aku's Lair, which was previously a reskinned Bara-Durr, but rather "Back to the Past," is also excellent for Gandalf's odds.

Want: 100%
Hell yeah I want Gandalf. It was devastating when he was seemingly dropped from the beta despite having a completed moveset in the files. And hey, it's perfectly in character for him to die and come back stronger. :V

"Whoa!"/"YOU SHALL NOT PASS!"

Neo
Chances: 60%

I would have thought Neo was going to be the Matrix rep in MultiVerses, but surprise they chose Agent Smith. This definitely hurts Neo's chances as I'm not sure if The Matrix has enough clout to merit more than one fighter. Then again Gremlins got two fighters in the forms of Gizmo and Stripe while only have two movies and a TV show. The Matrix has 4 films (5 if you want count The Animatrix) and a high-profile video game in form of "Enter the Matrix." Neo still has a decent shot of making the roster, but Agent Smith's inclusion has introduced some doubt in the former's chances.

Want: 75%

The Matrix is one of the first R rated movies I've ever watched so I have some attachment to Neo. It was helps that the Matrix films were the closest to being live-action DBZ. It would be neat is see Neo in MultiVerses' roster.

Gandalf
Chances: 50%

Gandalf is weird to gauge. He was in the original leaks and seemed like a shoe-in, but then Embracer Group got in the way. Reportedly Gandalf was found in the datafiles again so this SHOULD be a boost to his chances. The thing is Gandalf WAS in MultiVerses' code with a complete moveset before being removed. If Gandalf was that far in development before getting the axe, who is say that won't happened again despite in the code again.

Want: 50%

I did watch the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but I wouldn't call myself a fan. I did watch the Hobbit for school, but I also read Dune and I have stronger attachment to that book. If Gandalf does make it into MultiVerses, I would just say "neat" and go on with my life.

Chance - 15%/95%/55%. Back in the era of the beta, Neo would have a substantially higher score. Because of the emphasis on 2v2 combat, most characters came in pairs (Shaggy and Velma, Finn and Jake, etc.). There were a few one-offs here and there, but with the exception of Game of Thrones they were usually series with only one viable option in the first place. The post-release characters followed this pattern: we got the two Gremlins fairly close to each other, as well as Rick and Morty. If you squint, you could even pair Marvin and Lebron, leaving the only Beta DLC character flying solo as Black Adam. With this in mind, if they announced Agent Smith shortly after Marvin, Neo's inclusion would look blindingly obvious.

But things are different now. None of the characters at launch have someone to pair with, and looking at the characters close to completion none of them pair with each other either. The only series that look to be getting multiple characters relatively soon are Adventure Time and DC. Adventure Time is getting Banana Guard and Marceline, and while both of them are close to Princess Bubblegum, there are no connections between the two directly. Similarly, Joker, Aquaman, and Raven occupy completely separate parts of the DC universe (none match with Black Adam either). Joker is a Batman villain (so his likely companion would be a fellow Gothamite like Bane or Poison Ivy), Aquaman is a core member of the Justice League (so his partner would probably be someone like The Flash or Green Lantern), and Raven is a Teen Titan (so her partner would likely be someone like Beast Boy or Starfire). That's it. There's nothing pointing to a second Friday the 13th character, or a second Samurai Jack character, or a second Powerpuff Girls character (the trio seem to be a Pythra situation), or anything like that. It looks like Multiversus is moving away from a focus on pairing up characters, and is adapting a more Smash-esque stance: a series can get multiple characters at once, but it's because both of those characters deserve to be in, and not to fill a quota.

Lucky for Neo, he's still the main character from an incredibly influential series. I'm gonna be honest, several of the series that have multiple characters don't really deserve multiple characters at this stage of the game (Gremlins, Steven Universe, arguably Rick and Morty). Two Matrix characters on a roster of less than 30 is slightly questionable, but I'd be willing to let it slide, and as the roster gets bigger and we get further from Agent Smith, the more Neo's inclusion would be warranted. The only thing that gives me slight pause is that Keanu Reeves might not agree to Neo's inclusion, as he only does the character with the approval of the Wachowski Sisters, but I don't think that's an issue. I can't imagine either of them would be opposed to adding Neo (any more than they were with Agent Smith), and worst case scenario they have to recast, which would be unfortunate but not a dealbreaker.

1718228483638.png

Chance - 70%/95%/83%. I'm giving Gandalf a big score. His story when it comes to this game has been long and hard, but I think I see a happy ending on the horizon. For those not familiar - he was on the roster for the very first leak for the game. Presumably, he was pretty much complete at this point - but was cancelled because Warner Bros. and the Tolkien Estate were in the middle of a feud. Things between the two, though, seem to have improved. There's an animated LOTR movie releasing later this year, and a live action Gollum movie releasing in 2026 (likely to be the second-best Gollum media this decade). With the rift between the two seeming to heal, negotiations for Gandalf would likely be fairly smooth. Embracer Group, the company that currently owns the rights to LOTR, is hemorrhaging money and would likely say yes to anything that would keep them afloat for a second longer. And with Gandalf likely being complete before the beta (he was present when characters like Garnet and Velma weren't), the work to adapt him to the new engine would be dramatically less than creating a brand new fighter. Last but not least, the scrubbed Lord of the Rings data is allegedly back.. So yeah, I think Gandalf is in a pretty cozy spot ATM. If I had to guess when we'll see him - November or December, to promote the Rohirrim movie. That's why he gets a high chance score (along with a lot of the work having been done years ago).

Noms to Swamp Thing.

Neo: The Matrix Ends With You

Chance: 25%

Opossum brings up a very good point. I was very surprised when Smith was announced before Neo, which I think points towards something that went wrong behind the scenes and they couldn't get Neo for whatever reason. Possibly because historically speaking, Keanu Reeves doesn't get involved in Matrix-related projects without the Wachowskis' involvement. Now I'm far from the most knowledgeable person on Matrix stuff, so there may be something we are missing, but right now this is a very important factor to take into consideration.

That's not to say he can't happen, though. Maybe PFG just needs to have a group chat with Reeves and the Wachowskis and they could possibly make this happen, or it could be the case that Smith came first simply because of the villain theme they are doing right now. Either way, Neo is a beloved enough character to where I can see the devs fighting to get him in.

Want: 95%

What can I say about The Matrix? It's a thematically rich and highly influential film that kicks ass. Neo definitely deserves a spot in the game.

Gandalf

Chance: 55%

Yeah, I don't really know what to make of his chances right now.
He was essentially dead but now resurrected in the files so he's probably happening?
But with Tolkien Estate being finicky I hesitate to call Gandalf a guarantee but things are looking up for him.

Want: 95%

I mean, it's Lord of the Rings and Gandalf himself. Of course this would be a hype pick even if I don't have a strong attachment to the series.

-Barbie, 2023


Chance: 25%
What is there to say about Barbie that hasn't already been said? I know what has been said, though.

Barbie is a toyline released by Mattel in the 1950s. Since then, she has become a literal household name for generations to come, and the live-action film isn't even her first feature-length movie. She even got a part in Toy Story 2, and a bigger one in 3, so Hollywood has taken notice of her appeal before.

Despite that, she holds competition against Ken, for once in her fictional history, as Ryan Gosling's song was nominated for the Academy Awards. Not many family films get this distinction IIRC.

Want: 10%
Controversial take, I know. They did say MultiVersus is open to guest characters, after all. On the other hand, I'm under the belief that WB doesn't need to strike up licensing deals unless they have to. The conglomerate already has a lot of characters to choose from as is. Sure, Jason Vorhees made waves and gives us a new, non-reclassed Tank character, but I hope guest fighters are a rarity.

Add to this how WB only recently got a cut of Barbie's merchandising prowess, and there's not much I can say in favor of her getting in.

Wonka Wonka and the Wonka Factory

Chance: 50%
Willy Wonka is one of the poster children for Roald Dahl. The owner of a prestigious chocolate factory, and keeper of a legacy as everlasting as one of his Gobstoppers. Not only that, but he has connections to WB's past and present, meaning he has a good shot at getting in the game eventually.

The problem is, which one to pick? The Gene Wilder version with the most influential storyline? The Johnny Depp version with the most accurate take on the book? Or the Timothee Chalamet version with the most relevancy to WB's pocketbooks? That's where I find myself at an impasse, because all three of them have their merits to get in.

Oh wait, they can just sell the other two as Premium Variants and profit off this debate. Nevermind.

Want: 90%
I mean, it's Willy Wonka. I know what I said about guest characters with Barbie's Want score, but when all three of your movies are owned and/or distributed by the owner of MultiVersus, I'd say it's worth the price of admission in his sake. Plus, like Wicked Witch of the West, he can technically qualify as a Tom and Jerry rep if you're brave enough.

Noms to King Shark.

Barbie
Chance: 25%

I could see it. Barbie was a smash hit for WB, and in fact was their biggest hit in a LONG time. It's popular critically and among audiences. Barbie is also an iconic character. Ultimately, though, it's up to Mattel. That's the kicker here.

Want: 60%

I wouldn't lose sleep over her not making it in, but she'd be very fun and there's a lot of fun things you could do for stages in particular. Ken would also be cool, but he's just Ken, and it's Barbie's day.


Willy Wonka
Chance: 50%

This is another one that does require some outside negotiations, this time with the Roald Dahl estate, but I think it can happen. I think the likelihood order is Wilder > Chalamet > Depp. Whenever WB does things with the property, it's always tied back to the Wilder version.

Want: 100%
It's Willy Wonka, of course I want him. The Wilder version hails from one of the most iconic movie musicals of all time, and if there's one thing I desperately want more of in Multiversus, it's characters from movie musicals. To me, those are right up there with animation as WB's bread and butter. Additional Wizard of Oz characters, Tracy Turnblad, Audrey II, Don Lockwood, hell, Professor Harold Hill...and of course, Willy Wonka. He'd be wonderful.

"Mr. Anderson, we've been expecting you"-The Terroriser from Vanoss

Neo Anderson
25%: The Matrix is one of the most iconic movie franchises in cinema, the series has a total of 4 movies, two direct-to-dvd movies one of them being anime, various video games, comics, and more.

A lot of people assumed neo was gonna be the first character to get into multiversus since he is the main character and the hero of the franchise, but surprisingly Agent Smith get in instead alongside some good matrix content such as skins for the characters, it's unknown why neo didn't get in though a certain theory suggests that the characters' chances might be effected by the actor "Keanu Reaves" not wanting to have his likeness as neo in a crossover unless the creators of the matrix series were involved.

I never heard of this til' now but i do believe it enough as a possible understanding and if true then hopefully there's a way they can get keanu and maybe the creators to let neo in the game especially with his popular status' from the series.

70%: Ever since agent smith's inclusion, i've been having a keen interest in wanting to watch The Matrix Films, i don't know enough of the series besides the references from stuff i've seen such as Fairly Oddparents, Conker, and Vanossgaming(Not a reference but still a funny parody) so when i do i'll hopefully get to learn more about the series as a whole.

Neo would be a good character to get in with his slow-motion moments being used as counters, him having some good attacks to help reflect his fighting style, and possibly giving him the matrix in his kit, although i hope he and smith don't play out similarly cause that could lower his chances a bit.

"A Wizard is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to"

Gandalf
60%: The Lord of the Rings is one of the most well popular and recognizable series in the movie scene, starting off with the original novels it would later get an animated movie made by Ralph Bakshi in 1978 but it didn't really made it a huge impact, eventually Peter Jackson would make the live-action movies which made the lord of the rings as popular as it is today, having a total of 3 movies, a 2nd trilogy of films with the hobbit, some upcoming spin-off films such as the war of rohirrim and the search for gollum(Smeagle question this film's existence), and a series of video games titled The Middle Earth aswell as various crossovers with Warner Brothers properties before mostly LEGO Dimensions.

The series getting in Multiversus was a rather tricky spot, at one point Gandalf the Grey was suppose to be in from the start but was removed due to licensing with Tolkein and the idea that the company was detaching itself from warner brothers to make other stuff with different studios(Such as Rings of Power....) However with the man that calls himself a CEO wanting to push for Lord of the Rings to be one of WB's stable franchises it seems like it's possible they'll get the series back into the game and with the current datamine leaks it's possible that Gandalf may make his grand return to the realm of Warner for some fighting game fun.

No one may know for sure but with these things linning it feels more likely that the wizard of middle earth and everything from his world may be destined to join the game sometime later.

70%: I'd be great with Gandalf being in the game, i don't know if he'll move right but if he does have a slow movement pose i hope it is made up by his abilities and wise personality.

Lord of the Rings is a series i'm not so sure about but i do like it a little.

ARBY'S: WE HAVE THE BARBIES.
Chance: 65%
The Barbie Movie was a big hit for WB, and Barbie herself is a big request. Seems pretty obvious, right? She's all about different outfits (the movie makes them all into seperate characters) so there's an easy hook for F2P MTX, and the MVS account has made tweets alluding to the film. The biggest hurdle, really, is that Barbie is a guest character owned by Mattel and would theoretically need to use an actress' likeness (they could use the face of the doll, but I have a feeling Mattel wouldn't want those two seperate brands mixed up) - I don't think Mattel would necesarilly shoot down the idea of Barbie in a fighting game, as the Barbie movie itself is quite mature and that seems to be the direction Mattel wants to go with nostalgic IPs, but the budgetary issues and the fandom's reluctance towards guests are a bit troubling for Barb.
