MultiVersus Taz Guide: Overview
As a Horizontal fighter in MultiVersus, Taz isn’t the best at juggling opponents in the air, but can easily launch his enemies off the sides of the screen. He’s also a Bruiser, which means his hits pack a punch, even if he’s not the speediest character out there.
Thanks to his Bottomless Pit passive ability, several of Taz’s moves apply the Tasty debuff to opponents he hits. Once Taz applies the Tasty debuff, every hit he lands adds another stack of the debuff. After 15 hits, his opponent will become Cooked.
Cooked opponents transform into giant cooked chickens and lose the ability to use any of their moves. In addition, bits of chicken that can heal Taz and his allies will fall off of a Cooked opponent whenever they are hit.
Finally, Taz can lick teammates who pass by him in 2v2s in order to heal them slightly. While Taz’s licks have a cooldown, this ability enables him to support weakened teammates whenever he’s not busy attacking himself.

MultiVersus Taz Guide: Specials
Taz’s neutral-special, Chew Em Up, Spit Em Out, lets him swallow both enemies and projectiles in MultiVersus. If he’s on the ground, he can chew opponents up to deal damage before spitting them out. In the air, Taz will spit opponents downward.
The Taz-Nado, Taz’s side-special, is currently one of the most integral parts of his moveset. This long-lasting, multi-hit move does a decent amount of percent and a great deal of horizontal knockback, making it a great kill move. The Taz-Nado will last longer if he uses it to pass an ally, while also making that ally a bit faster. If the move is unlikely to hit, Taz is also able to cancel out of it and reposition himself.
Taz’s up-special is called Dogpile! Dogpile! While it’s a slow-moving attack, it’s difficult to punish and will deal a lot of damage to any opponent who is hit by it. It also always beats out the Taz-Nado, making it a helpful tool in the mirror match. While waiting for the cooldown period to end, this move will merely cause Taz to jump up and scratch above his head twice.
Finally, Taz’s down-special is called You Spit What You Eat. With this move, Taz spits out a chewed apple that applies the Tasty debuff if it hits an opponent. However, if Taz has swallowed a projectile with his neutral-special, he will instead spit out that projectile and apply multiple Tasty debuff stacks to any enemy he hits.
- Here are the best perks in MultiVersus that you should absolutely be using.
MultiVersus Taz Guide: Perks
Taz has two signature perks. If he has swallowed a projectile with his neutral-special, then the Iron Stomach perk causes him to spit out an anvil instead of that projectile with his down-special. Meanwhile, the I Gotta Get In There! perk enables Taz’s teammates to join his up-special, making the move last longer, gain armor, and deal more damage and knockback.
The Offense perk Percussive Punch Power improves Taz’s already strong punish game by making moves that deal horizontal knockback do 5% more damage. Then, the Defense perk Absorb ‘n’ Go grants him a 7% cooldown refund whenever a projectile hits him. By limiting the amount of time he’s stuck in ability cooldowns, this perk helps Taz to remain at his peak all throughout the fast-paced action of a match.
Finally, Taz’s recommended Utility perk is the aptly-named Tasmanian Trigonometry. With this perk, Taz and his allies have 15% more base knockback influence. As a result, Taz can stick around longer by having greater control over his trajectory any time an opponent hits him.

MultiVersus Taz Guide: Combos
Taz isn’t much of a combo character himself in MultiVersus. Instead, he thrives off of disrupting his opponent’s movement with attacks like Taz-Nado and Dogpile! Dogpile! While these moves are difficult to beat out, their slow start-up does give opponents the opportunity to run away and try to beat them out with a big hitbox.
Otherwise, Taz can try to begin combo strings with his down-air. Often he can follow up with another low-to-the-ground aerial, then start his side-normal combo and finish with one of his other grounded normal attacks. Since Taz thrives when his opponent is Cooked, it is best for Taz players to try to land moves that apply the Tasty debuff, then follow up with any of Taz’s multi-hit moves to continue stacking the debuff.
