Respawn's Apex Legends is taking the battle royale world by storm and not just because of its incredible take on a popular PvP model, but because of the amazing characters we've been introduced to. Gibraltar is one of those Legends and it seems that Moana fans think he's the perfect fit for fans of the film.
The free-to-play title is definitely on everyone's minds, but Twitter had some of the best takes when it comes to the Moana character Maui:
Started playing Bloodhound last night and I actually love them. Played some Gibraltar too and as much as I want to love him (thickboi, LGBTQ, reminds me of Maui from Moana, etc) I don’t love his abilities all that much. I think he’s good but I’m not good with him.— Emintea (@EminteaWASD) February 11, 2019

Wraith: Emo Psycho Thing
Lifeline: WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU

Pathfinder: Bastion but with voices instead of doowoos
Hands down Gibraltar. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d be able to be Maui and gay at the same time, yet here we are.— Devin (@xYOHIKx) February 11, 2019

OK, so maybe he's not "literally" the Moana character but it's a little too hard not to see the resembelance and we can dream!
