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.

fer619's version


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.


Veanko's version


Veanko's Garfield 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.

Victory quotes


Wheres that Lasagna you promised me?
Hey, you, the player. couldn't you have picked someone else? Im not really one for fighting games.
Great, you made me miss Name That Fish! thanks a lot.
Stay tuned for a mindless game show featuring large chickens!
You should put a warning on oatmeal.
