If you’re looking to figure out some of The Joker’s move sets and combos in the run-up to the release of MultiVersus, then I’m here to break down what you can expect to see from the Clown Prince of Crime.

Once again voiced by the legendary Mark Hamill, The Joker joins the likes of Batman, Black Adam and Tom & Jerry who are all ready to fight for victory in the game.

The Joker playstyle in MultiVersus

As you can see from the trailer above, The Joker’s move set is incredibly chaotic and designed to keep opponents guessing what his next move will be.

You can combo the Take A Whiff attack with Brushed And Ready to make it even stronger than it typically would.

Moreover, there is a certain element of RNG and surprise to expect from The Joker’s array of moves. Fire In The Hole has several outcomes that may make it risky to use or could benefit you greatly, while Dirty Dealer cycles through various card suits to issue different attacks.
