MultiVersus is a platform fighter with a unique twist. Unlike other games in the genre, players can equip perks to augment their characters in battle. Though there are plenty of perks, some are better than others. Finding out the best perks for you can help give you an edge.

While perk choices are ultimately up to preference, the current MultiVersus duos and solos champion, gsmVoiD, has several favorites he recommends. Check out what he thinks are the most influential abilities in the game.

You can find VoiD’s best overall Perk picks below, along with info on each. The abilities that made VoiD’s best Perk list are some of the game’s most reputable, no matter which character you use.

We’ve also included which characters get these Perks via leveling. Though certain fighters get these moves, all the characters can learn them via Perk Training at level nine. Training each Perk costs 150 Gold if none of your characters know it and 100 Gold if you have a character that learned it previously. All Perk info comes directly from the MultiVersus Wiki.
