Big Chungus Might Be Coming to MultiVersus

Warner Bros. has filed a trademark for the Bugs Bunny meme, Big Chungus, and many think it’s for an addition to fighting game MultiVersus.

Per VGC reporter Andrew Marmo, the company has filed a trademark claim for the image of an inflated Bugs Bunny under the name “Big Chungus” – the very name given to him by an unknown Gamestop employee as per the original meme (based on a term coined by games critic Stephanie Sterling).

The trademark, filed on August 26, 2022 with the European Union Intellectual Property Office covers the use of “Big Chungus” and his image across video games, including “video and computer game programs.” However, it also includes the use of Big Chungus in motion pictures as well as toys and merch.

MultiVersus fans are convinced that this means the classic Bugs Bunny meme is coming to the studio’s platform-based fighting game.

The design of Big Chungus originated from an old episode of Merrie Melodies in which Bugs Bunny inflates himself to oversized proportions in an effort to mock Elmer Fudd. But he wasn’t named “Big Chungus” until 2018, when a Gamestop employee’s encounter went viral.

Since then, Big Chungus has become a bit of an internet celebrity and has already made it into a previous Warner Bros. game – Looney Tunes World of Mayhem. Here, Big Chungus was a playable character, leading some to wonder whether this new trademark has in fact been sparked by the mobile game.

Does this mean we’ll see Big Chungus in MultiVersus? For now, we’ll have to wait and see. But the meta nature of the game, as well as the trademark’s timing as the company gears up to add more fighters to its roster, certainly suggests a potential connection.

We’ve contacted WB for comment.
