How to play Marvin the Martian in MultiVersus

Marvin is an Assassin in MultiVersus, which comes as a surprise to much. He feels a lot like a Mage, most of his kit is long-ranged, and he has many tricks up his sleeve. However, getting good with Marvin requires a high-risk, high-reward rushdown strategy. You'll need to learn his many tools to destroy opponents up close and at a distance.

All Marvin the Martian moves in MultiVersus


  • Acme Bubble Blaster (Neutral)
    • Marvin charges and fires a large slow-moving projectile which launches the opponent upward. If the bubble hits an allies' projectile, it'll wrap it up and slow it down. If it hits an enemy projectile, it'll reflect it. Cooldown applies after firing a fully-charged shot.
  • Martian Arts Training (Side)
    • Standing 3-hit combo that ends with an arcing upward projectile. Not a true combo, but the projectile can hit at a distance.
  • Shoot the Moon (Up)
    • Marvin charges and shoots a projectile upward. He can aim while charging.
  • A-1 Disintegrating Pistol (Down)
    • Fires a short-range beam forward. Holding the button will keep the beam out, but Marvin will take damage over time. The beam disappears immediately after connecting with an enemy.
  • K-62 Projectile Modulator (Neutral Special)
    • Marvin presses a button, dealing damage to anyone immediately nearby. This attack pauses and reverses the direction of any allied projectile. The attack can still be used while on cooldown, but it'll only damage foes.
  • Acme Space-Time Rifle (Side Special)
    • Marvin fires a short-range projectile that will pull the foe up and towards Marvin.
  • To Me, My Glorious Ship! (Up Special)
    • Marvin launches upwards, leaving his spaceship in his place. It then aims and fires a missile toward Marvin's location. The ship can be destroyed by enemies, and the missile is a heavy projectile with immense knockback.
  • ...In the Name of Mars! (Down Special)
    • Marvin plants a flag that emanates a small area of light. If enemies stand in the aura, they receive the lock-on debuff. Marvin can use To Me, My Glorious Ship! and the missile will target and track the locked-on enemy.

Tips and Strategies for Marvin the Martian in MultiVersus

Marvin relies a lot more on vertical attacks than most projectile-focused characters. He's designed to get kills by repeatedly forcing the foe upwards or spiking with his incredible aerial down attack. In 2v2 matches, abuse Marvin's neutral special every time a projectile misses and give them a second chance. In addition, attacks like Acme Space-Time Rifle and Cosmic Kicks leave the enemy above Marvin, perfectly setting them up for stronger combos. Pairing Marvin with powerful allies like Black Adam will be incredibly powerful. Marvin is unusual but very capable. Learn his projectiles and claim every arena for Mars.
