Garfield is an anthropomorphic tabby cat and the title character of the popular long-running newspaper comic strip of the same name. Portrayed as a lazy character, he enjoys eating (especially lasagna), sleeping and poking fun at his owner, Jon.
He is teased about being overweight and constantly lectured on the fact he's selfish and one-sided. For example in one strip his owner, Jon Arbuckle, stubs his toe and Garfield comforts him, however, he says "It's not like it happened to me." He is best friends with Arbuckle's household dog, Odie, but torments him occasionally, as he does with Jon. He hates Mondays, and is often struck by bad luck in Monday comic strips. He enjoys performing at the wooden fence next to Jon's house in the middle of the night, although he is usually criticized. His favorite food is lasagna.
In M.U.G.E.N, Garfield has been made by Timote95 under the guise of "Geno Garfield" and Fer619. Fer619's version was edited by Aperson98, which was in turn edited again by Veanko.
Geno Garfield is just what his name suggests; Garfield donning the appearance of Geno from Super Mario RPG, and as such, is a spriteswap of tachi's Geno. The initial release of the character had no sound effects whatsoever, though later versions began including them. Oddly enough, earlier versions of this character featured sound effects from the Kirby games before adding the voice clips from Fer619's Garfield.
The first fat cat to ever be created in M.U.G.E.N has three oddly placed buttons, sprites from the GBA game Garfield: The Search For Pooky, and a single Hyper. Its comboability might look weak, but on closer inspection, this lasagna eater is capable of several easy projectile infinites.
Aperson98 tweaked Fer619's Garfield almost 2 years after his latest update, with new sprites and a few new moves. However, since Garfield still doesn't have any A.I., he is more sluggish and easy to outwit, mostly due to his new "Nap" move; also, he had some of his older moves and intros/outros removed/edited. These sprites were taken from Garfield: Caught In The Act.
Hovering the mouse cursor over the Command Input icons will display text that refers to the inputs set in M.U.G.E.N's Key Config.
Icons encased in square brackets [ ] require the respective button(s) to be held down. Hovering the mouse cursor over the gap displays the hold duration if applicable.
This edit to Aperson98's Garfield is almost unchanged, save the default palette being changed to a colour scheme reminiscent of the original Garfield comic strips and all the other palettes having been removed from the .def file.
Likely an edit of Aperson98's garfield, this character has more Specials and a variety of ways to easily heal himself. His A.I. often spams couch drops which deals massive damage to the opponent, as well as summoning odie often and activating his healing methods. It is also only compatible with M.U.G.E.N 1.0.
