Tom & Jerry is one of the cartoon world's most iconic double acts. Airing around the same time as the Looney Tunes, this cat and mouse duo is similarly revered for their hilarious antics. Their scenario changes, but the dynamic rarely does — Tom is a cat desperate to capture Jerry, a pesky, intelligent mouse. They occasionally work together, but are mostly at each other's throats, each of them willing to try anything to dispatch the other, leading to countless brilliant slapstick exchanges.
The cartoons have gone through many iterations throughout the years, and the pair has even starred in several films, including 2021's simply titled Tom & Jerry, a mix of live action and animation.

How to Win as Tom & Jerry
Tom & Jerry act as one, Mage class character, with plenty of Projectiles in their moveset as well as one completely unique ability: splitting up. This is one of the game's more complex fighters, though you can get by pretty handily with most of their regular moves.
The Neutral Special move sees Tom fire Jerry away as a Projectile. Wherever he lands, he'll start firing corks that can damage enemies, and the direction depends on what attacks you then perform as Tom. Having Tom and Jerry separated has other benefits; if an ally picks Jerry up, they will get a buff to their damage output and a slight increase in speed. To bring Tom and Jerry back together, simply approach Jerry with Tom.
Tom's most useful move is his Neutral Attack, which sees him charge up a tennis racquet swing. This is good for several reasons. Firstly, it deals decent damage on its own. Secondly, it can reflect Projectiles, meaning you can send them back towards opponents. Thirdly, it can be used to power up some of Tom & Jerry's other attacks.
For example, your Air Down Special drops a stick of dynamite. If you then hit it with Tom's racquet, it will fly forward and will be more powerful. Similarly, using the Neutral Special while Jerry's away will see Tom send out tennis balls. If you then strike these with the racquet, they will gain power. It's worth remembering these things and using them to your advantage.
The Up Special sends out a controllable rocket. It's slow moving, but deals great knockback, and can easily catch people off guard. Another move worth remembering is the Down Special, in which Tom lays down a mouse trap. You might as well have this down whenever you can, because in the chaos of a 2v2 brawl, an enemy will likely run into it by mistake.
Oh, and just a quick note: Jerry can fall from the arena without incurring a ringout. It's only when Tom leaves the stage that the duo is knocked out.
