A key goal for Multi-Messenger Astronomy will be to characterize gravitational wave and neutrino sources using the next generation of Extremely Large Telescopes. These studies will have a broad impact across astrophysics. The counterparts to high-frequency GW sources will be distant and faint and thus demand ELT capabilities for characterization.
