Tips and Strategies for Jake in MultiVersus

While Jake is classified as a Bruiser, he is surprisingly versatile. His stretchiness grants him the additional range that lets him strike from afar but get up close if needed. His kit has various gimmicks like Stretchin' Out, Giddy Up!, and That's Heavy, Dude that change his appearance and give him unique attacks.

His Rubber Stomach, Dude! is a powerful tool that can be hard to use but devastating if you can land it. It allows him to swallow enemies and spit them off stage for a follow-up ring out or to give allies Armor and shoot them back on stage if you are both off stage. Ultimately, Jake excels at controlling the battlefield while dealing large amounts of damage.
