Could Big Chungus be coming to MultiVersus?
Recent leaks indicate that Big Chungus, the overweight version of Bugs Bunny who shot to world fame in 2017, may soon be coming to Warner Bros. Games, the MultiVersus free party brawler can play as a playable character.
The Big Chungus character, captured by VGC journalist Andrew Marmo, was trademarked by Warner Bros. for use in video games. The information will be extracted from the EUIPO open source database.
The discovery has led many fans to suggest that Warner Bros. has trademarked Big Chungus to use the popular meme character in its hit game Multiversus, either as a standalone character or as a skin for the foreseeable future.

It’s important to note that Warner Bros. has yet to confirm if Big Chungus or a playable character will be announced in MultiVersus or as a skin for Bugs Bunny. This is also possible for the character, which can be used as an in-game emote or even for a completely different game. Since Warner Bros. took over the intellectual property rights from Big Chungus, the company will want to capitalize on its popularity and market potential at some point.
Who is Big Chungus?
Big Chungus has now played Lonny Tunes: World of Mayhem. The character came out on a fake game cover as Big Chungus in 2017 after becoming well known as a photoshop meme.
Big Chungus wouldn’t be surprised to join MultiVersus because the main reason for the game is to combine countless superheroes and cartoon characters. The game developer has renewed the desire to see famous characters from this game. Two of the stars recently added to the roster include Black Adam and Reed from DC Comics, Stripe and Gremlins, and Rick from the animated series Rick & Morty.
