Best Tom and Jerry Combos

Now that we’re all caught up with the moves and perks of Tom and Jerry in MultiVersus. We can finally lay down the best combos you can adapt to get the upper hand in your battles. 

Combos can prove to be key during your plays. This will put your opponent under pressure and allow you to land some major blows to their health. 

Uppercut Finisher

  • PC:  Space + J + W > Space + J + S
  • Xbox: A + X + Up > A + X + Down
  • PlayStation: X + Square + Up > X + Square + Down

The opponent should be damaged adequately before you launch them into the air when you use Aerial Down + Attack for this combo to be most effective. You now have the chance to finish them off with an Aerial Up + Attack to remove them off the map.

Mallet Combo

  • PC: J + A/D x4
  • Xbox: X + Side x4
  • PlayStation: Square + Side x4

Tom’s basic move of Mallet Time creates by far the easiest combo for Tom and Jerry in MultiVersus. All you need to do is stand alongside your opponent and perform a 4x Mallet Time attack quickly. 

Horizontal Combo 

  • PC: Space + J + S > J + S > J + A/D > J + W
  • Xbox: A + X + Down > X + Down > X + Side > X + Up
  • PlayStation: X + Square + Down > Square + Down + Square + Side > Square + Up

The Horizontal Combo is quite useful with Tom and Jerry. The combo will inflict 30 damage to opponents without any perks. You will begin with the Aerial Down attack, then use Tom’s normal melee attack to create good momentum. Then finish the combo off with an Up Attack to knock your opponent off.

Launch Combo

  • PC: J + S > K/I > Space + J + S
  • Xbox:  X + Down > Y/LB > A + X + Down
  • PlayStation: Square + Down > Triangle/L1 > X + Square + Down

The launch combo is a great way to finish off your battle. When you have Tom and Jerry equipped, you can perform this combo by using the down attack to knock your enemy back. Follow that up by launching Jerry with a slingshot. Then finish the combo by using the Cast-Iron Crusher attack (preferably when the opponent is falling off the map).

How To Utilize Tom and Jerry

  • Understand Their Role: Tom and Jerry belong to the mage class, excelling in ranged attacks. While they do have formidable melee options, their primary strength lies in their long-ranged abilities.
  • Leverage Ranged Attacks: Make the most of Tom and Jerry’s ranged special attacks, such as “Goin’ Fishin,” “Slingshot Sharpshooter,” and “Rocket Mouse” to control the battlefield and deal damage from a distance.
  • Team Synergy: Remember that they come as a duo, effectively providing an extra character to your team. Coordinate with your allies to maximize the impact of the Cheese Buff they can grant.
  • Long-Range Plays: If you prefer a playstyle that focuses on long-range combat with the added bonus of quick melee attacks, Tom and Jerry are an excellent choice. Use their unique abilities and perks to create strategic opportunities for your team.
  • Communication: Effective communication with your team will be crucial. Discuss and coordinate your abilities, positioning, and timing to make the most of Tom and Jerry’s skills in battle.
