Top Ten Adventure Time Characters

The Top Ten Adventure Time Characters

1 Marceline Marceline the Vampire Queen is a fictional character in the American animated Cartoon Network television series Adventure Time, created by Pendleton Ward.

Hey Marceline so sorry that I want you because you're doing good and I want to be your girlfriend not to be mean and I'm excited to see you because you're so sweet and funny as you are beautiful and most important part about this whole time and the reason why I want to be your girlfriend that I love how you sing dance also play and Finn and Jake were helping you out and I want to live with you and adventure time that I'm looking forward to is that I am really up to it and adventure time is going to be my world too because I want to talk with you about that it's true I'm not making this up I'm trying to figure out how I want to help you out also take me loving each other and get along with other people who are looking forward to you also I want to be a vampire too a nice vampire I'm excited to talk to you about that also and I'm sorry but it's still true and I need to help you I don't want to see you getting hurt and the vampire king was trying to kill you and I don't want to see that ...more

Marceline is my favorite character. The first episode I saw her in was "What Was Missing". When I saw her I thought she was really pretty. Then I heard her singing, and knew she was my favorite character. Plus she's just like me. I sort of have issues with my dad. I can sing really good. I fell like I have no friends (in the episode "" she says "let's talk about my feelings about my friends, oh wait I don't have friends"), because they don't talk to me, or invite me anywhere. I have long hair but it's dark brown so when I get older I'm going to dye it black ( I don't want to dye it black now, because people well think I'm turning emo or goth, or you know). My favorite color, is red. I love music so much that I have to listen to it every single day, or I go crazy. I'm going to try to learn how to play basketball (Yeah I know. I'm stupid okay), and learn how to play the bass. My cousin is sorta like her. She knows how to play the bass. She knows how to play ...more

Marceline and Marshall Lee are the coolest cartoon characters I've ever seen, they're more than contending for anime characters. I've been breaking my back not to steal their characters because they're so cool, I mean, wouldn't you love to be them? Floating around, transforable, drinking the red out peoples apples--COME ONE! They're so cool, La you Mar Mar

Marceline has my exact personality and I love to sing as well.
I am super glad to see her here as she is my favorite character. We also both have daddy issues, she and the rest of the show has helped me through some dark times. But her singing helped me the most.

2 Jake

Jake and Ice King are basically a tie for me. Though I like Jake a tad better - Spongehouse

Jake (full title: Jake the Dog), the deuteragonist of Adventure Time, is a magical dog and Finn's constant companion, best friend, and adoptive brother. Jake has Stretchy Powers (which he has had since he was a puppy), which allow him to stretch and manipulate his body, coming in handy on innumerable occasions throughout his and Finn's adventures. He is the son of Joshua and Margaret. Jake has a brother named Jermaine. Jake is 28 years old (as of his debut he could possibly be in his 30's by now due to the aging of other characters) in magical dog years, though he rarely acts mature. Then again, how exactly magical dog years correlate to human years remains to be seen. Both he and his girlfriend, Lady Rainicorn, share a passion for playing the viola. In the episode "Jake the Dad," he and Lady Rainicorn have 5 Rainicorn-dog hybrid puppies.

Jake is the best! I particularly like him in 'what was missing', when he got a Mohawk and started acting all punk-rock

He's really funny and cute and random plus him sharing
Benders voice makes it even more entertaining

3 Finn

I think finn is the best character because he is the only one that have 6 coolest sword in the series

Finn is adorable. And he is so sweet and innocent half the time about things, but it just adds to his cuteness. And he wears a cute bear hat. How could it get any better then that?

Finn is the coolest I knew it Finn would be first before opening the website. But I like Jake more

Finn is a crazy kid who act like hero but he look likes a capsul that have arms and legs

4 Ice King The Ice King is a character in the American animated television series Adventure Time. A supposedly evil wizard capable of creating and manipulating ice and snow, he is the self-proclaimed king of the Ice Kingdom, a land of ice he claimed as his own and lives in in company of many penguins.

Ice King is terrible, he's the worst cartoon villain of all time, if you want a good cartoon villain, go see Discord from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Discord is the ultimate cartoon villain in history, before he were formed at the end of season 4.

Looking at his backstory, and everything he's gone through is enough to make him the most powerful
Character on the show. His intricate relationship with Marceline and their so far unexplained history together gives them a complicated persona and makes him the unrecognized hero.

Ice King looks annoying sat first but he's honestly kinda cool. - AlphaQ

Ice King completely makes the show! It wouldn't be half as funny or complex without him.


The BMO Noir episode is the best and BMO saves the day at the end so clearly the best character. In addition he has all the best songs and stories!

How could BMO possibly be only 4! I love bmo he's a skateboarding gaming system that try's to act human, and plus he's hilarious "No, I do not play such games... With jake! " "Bmo chop! If this were a real attack... You'd be dead" "if anyone try's to hurt Finn I will kill them" enough said.

BMO is my favorite, yes I am peeing.

Daw BMO is ma in my list of personal favorites (it goes Jake, BMO, Marcy and Flame Princess) BMO is probably the second most comedic person on this show (second only to Jake) I love how he/she talks to his/her reflection, and teaches it how to become 'human' well as human as a skateboarding, soccer playing gaming system can get

6 Princess Bubblegum Princess Bonnibel Bubblegum of the Candy Kingdom is a fictional character in the Adventure Time animated series on the Cartoon Network.

Princess Bubblegum has been my favorite since the beginning, and although her latest appearances have gained her a lot of hate, it's actually made me like her more. The best thing about AT is the characters, and PB is one of the most interesting and developed characters on television. The amazing thing about PB (and Ice King too) is the realistic balance of her personality. The ridiculous portrayal of good and evil in other shows has always bothered me, so it's great to have a character that actually has so much grey area. Is PB good? Is she evil? She's neither, but nobody is. PB is an example of how people actually work: she can be selfish, she can make mistakes, but she's human. Well, half-human. Nobody's perfect, and PB is the perfect example. This is the kind of interesting character that shows today need more of! So PB gets all the hate just because she isn't as black and white as, say, Finn? Do you guys want to encourage the creation of boring characters? Give PB a little ...more

I used to think princess bubblegum was hot, now I think of her as one of the most three dimensional characters in the show. She represents humanity, sometimes she is a sweet caring girl, and other times she is a maniac, just like the human race. Good on you, pen ward.

What? She is number 8? Princess is should be least in the top 3. - 05yusuf09

I personally think Princess Bubblegum deserves at least 3rd place she is an amazing character and one of my absolute favorite characters. She proves that to be a princess you can't love science.

7 Flame Princess Flame Princess Is a Princess made out of fire and lives in her kingdom ruled by here evil father, The Flame King. Her first appearance in the show was “Incendium” (Season 3, Episode 26) She was Finn's girlfriend at one point in the series.

Personally, I find that FP is one of the more traumatized characters in the show besides Marceline. She literally spent half of her life, effectively the latter half of her childhood, locked in a lamp with no knowledge of the outside world, plus her relationship with Finn is highly interesting, as the is a significant element of risk in their relationship, and their only possible precautions slow its progress significantly.

Honestly, I liked Adventure Time, but after FP got introduced, I became obsessed with it, wanting to see more of her and find out more about her. Also want to see what happens with her and Finn.

Everyone thinks, "Oh, Flame Princess is so much better off without Finn, he's a jerk, he doesn't deserve her." I say that he's a selfless kid who deserves to be happy. Also, LOOK HOW SAD HE WAS WHEN THEY BROKE UP! I think the same thing as everybody else, but in reverse.

Look at the cause of their break up and why, and you'll see he didn't mean to be mean or rude. He did it for something different. - Qryzx

I just can't stop looking at her! She is beautiful and feisty and I just love her to pieces! I'm forever looking her up to watch videos about her on YouTube or read about her (sad, I know :)). ADVENTURE TIME IS THE BEST SHOW EVER!

8 Lumpy Space Princess Lumpy Space Princess is a character in Adventure Time. She first appears in Trouble In Lumpy Space. She is the the daughter of Lumpy Space King and Queen.

The fist time I watched Adventure Time it had Lumpy Space Princess in it. To be specific, it was the episode where Finn gets bitten and starts to turn into a Lumpy Space person. Right after the episode, I went to YouTube and watched Best of Lumpy Space Princess videos because I wanted to watch more funny moments from her. Overall, Lumpy Space Princess is my favorite character because she is hilarious and makes me laugh every time she is on screen

Her Valley Girl voice tickles the hell out of me. I love the episode when she told Finn to put a ring on it.

Lumpy Space Princess is one of the worst characters in the show. She is a whiney, selfish, annoying brat. Her voice is horrible and I find it irritating when she uses the word Glob and Lumps in every sentence she says. I hate her in the episode lumps when she clearly does not care that Jake has the lumps and she abandoned Fin on a lumpy space cloud. These are the reasons why I hate her and think she is overrated.

I love her voice and personality. Her hysterical nature also makes me laugh, we need more characters like LSP!

9 Gunter Gunter is the penguin that most commonly accompanies the Ice King in the animated TV series, Adventure Time and a major recurring antagonist of the series.

That's One Nasty Booty Gunter. Gunter Is An Funny and a pretty cute little penguin!

Gunter looks so cute and the noises he makes are adorable but he's pure evil inside which I think represents the true characteristics of man kind.

Gunter is the most evil character on the show! He nearly destroyed the candy kingdom and created evil ice snakes.

. Gunter is super cute. I would keep him if I had to! (Well... I just have to keep him AWAY from glass bottles...)

10 Earl of Lemongrab

He is a psychopathic lemon bent on power and it was a nice thing to see him grow as a ruler in the series until he had a respectable kingdom. Some might say lemon grab has no personal problems making his character boring well he does (such as being messed up during his creation) he just decides to ignore them and just be himself no matter how really insane his real self is.

SO FUNNY! Those who have not voted for him don't know how funny he is... I just can't stand the fact that he is in 12th. It is UNACCEPTABLE!

He's decisive, resourceful, and completely brutal. The fact that he never has internal confliction, and always knows what he wants makes him a completely unique character in this series.

Lemongrab is crazy, but the crew of the show say he may be schizophrenic or autistic. This might influence some of the things he does. Nevertheless, I deem him ACCEPTABLE! :-)

The Contenders

11 Peppermint Butler

Can't appreciate the guy from what he did to Peace Master. That guy wanted peace in all the land. What does he get in return? His kids are mutated and that stupid peppermint forced him to do all that stuff! Cold man, COLD. I hope Susan Strong eats him.

I think that the friendship between Peppermint Butler and Death is the most interesting on the show after Finn and Jake's. I hope the show eventually gives us background on how that relationship came to be!

Behind his backstory, he is actually a VERY incredible character. He used to be friends with death, he is a vampire addict, and he knows how to summon rituals. I like him a lot because he's very relatable. Hey, I love creepypastas, like how he loves dark stuff! There's something more to his character than just being a candy butler for Princess Bubblegum!

I wish he appears more. Cause man, his dark past which is unknown to us is totes cool. He kinda gives me those psycho character's vibe.

12 Fionna

Fionna is a cool girl I want to be her so I can hang out with Marshall lee and Cake

She is like the coolest girl in town, even though she was from the Ice King's mind, still, she is the kind you wanna hang out with!

Fionna is an example of a powerful women and people need to see a girl can do what a boy can do and this is coming from a straight boy

Woah! How is Fiona at 15? She's like, in my top 5! She's basically a girl version of Finn and Finn's at 3 so... People! Way to be a buzzkill for girls!

13 Shelby

His narration at the end of the Christmas episode is one of my absolute favourite scenes! His voice is so cool.. Up there with Christopher Lee and James earl jones

I just like Shelby... He's got that funny voice, y'know?

He is one of the most perceptive characters in the whole program. His one liners are the best!

One of my favorite characters..

14 Lady Rainicorn

Lady Rainicorn is adorable! She has a very pretty rainbow theme all over her, and she always is very happy and sweet to others! It breaks your heart when she cries because shes always around smiling! Even though most of us can't understand her, she still is very interesting to listen to talk!

I just love the fact that she's also a violist. It makes her and Jake such an adorable couple!

Do you know what language lady rainicorn speaks? She actually speaks Korean.

AW she's so cute! Especially with Jake, they are the cutest couple!

15 The Lich The Lich (formerly named the Lich King in the original pitch and "His Hero," and referred to as Sweet Pig Trunks in his baby form, or just Sweet P for short) is a powerful undead being and a major antagonist in the American animated series Adventure Time.

He’s un-nerving, evil to the core, and extremely intimidating. He needs no introduction, he needs no backstory or character. His eyes conveys pure fear onto the viewer. Absolutely the greatest villain in Adventure Time, and I struggle to recall any more a horrific antagonist of the last decade in all of animation.

The show started really random and stupid, then it got better in season 3 if I remember. Lich is the most powerful wizard and if it wasn't for Jake and Finn, he would've destroyed all life.

It's a undead, god like creature of death and destruction. I wonder if he can kill death himself?... Probably.

The most powerful creature in Adventure Time, nearly destroyed all life, can say just one word to defeat you, and turns into giant baby, what not to love.

16 Cake

The best cat. I really wish she was my best friend.

Cake's voice is so awesome, and so is she :D

I find Cake to be totally similar to me.

She is a cool cat! Meow!

17 Cinnamon Bun

I think CB is underrated. In the first episode, he does a backflip and falls, and hits his head. Then he acts all weird and stuff. Fun fact. It’s confirmed that he got brain damage from that fall. You laughed when you saw him fall. You laughed at something getting brain damage in his debut. Think about that!

For some reason, I love him for being annoying. Plus I like him and Flame Princess together, since he's the only guy calm and nonchalant to be with her. He's silly sometimes, he's not actually a complete screw-up like most people think. Who delivered the tarts safely for everyone to eat, especially when the Princess was at stake in being paralyzed after Finn and Jake poisoned the food?

When you think about it he's like in his late 20s and flame princess is like what a teenager yeah weird

Come on! Who the heck will like that stupid and dumb character who made the best couple break up! If I was at adventure time world! So annoying.

18 Earl of Lemongrab

There will never be another cartoon character quite like Lemongrab. Love his screams/freakouts, word usage and totalitarian regimes. Truly irreplaceable.

Didn't this appear before

I find the earl really funny mainly by voise also changed as a ruler from the first introduced in too young to the mountain where we see the New earl

22!? THIS IS UNACCEPTABBLLEE! - Pokemonfan10

19 Tree Trunks

She is awesome and cute evn though I've been wondering, how old she is.

Tree Trunks is one of the best characters on Adventure Time, she is one of the only motherly figures on the show!

She is so cute! I love her so much!

Wish I could try her apple pie - Lunala

20 Joshua the Dog

He fights supernatural creatures,he has an awesome wife and he is the father of Jake,Jermane and Finn.How can you not love him and his accent?

21 Jake Jr.

"And this little lady is Jake Jr." She's a girl, duh!

I think it was never clear if Jake Jr. is a girl or a guy! - keyson

She has the same voice as Mabel lol

Jake Jr. is so matured. but I think she should change her name. I actually thought she was a boy. her name should be... Jackie or Jane... or whatever. but overall she's awesome.

22 Simon Petrikov

Why the hell is he so low in the list? He is a great guy. He took care of a kid who is not his while being in an apocalypse and while being nearer to insanity. He deserves more really

He has one of the most tragic stories of all cartoons. Need I say more?

I think a lot of people picked Ice King because of him, so he's not supposed to be somewhere here.

Why is the insane version of Simon above Simon? It does not make since! - Skullkid755

23 Betty Grof

Best love interest ever made.

I like how she has a lot of confidence and doesn't stand down

She is a lady who would do anything to save her Fionce. Also, she is part of the cutest nerd couple in history.

24 Hunson Abadeer

BOO, why is he here?

If you read the Adventure Time Encyclopedia, you'll see he actually has a sense of humor.

I think he's cool and creepy

Whoa, is this the family axe? Did you turn it into some kind of lute?!

25 Me-Mow

I like him because I love! Cats

Me-mow is awesome. Why is she in the bottom? She should be number 1!


Me-mow is my BFF! She has to be on the top right now! If she was a character in Dora, she would beat the explorer up!
Me-mow: Oh hey, Dora.
Dora: Hey, Me-mow! Wanna be my friend?
Me-mow: Yeah, but...
Dora: What's your talent?
Me-mow: well, I can do this!
* Poisons Dora*

26 Susan
27 Minerva

She has the sweetest personality. She is a hardworker. She cares so much about the ones she love. She brings me so much beauiful emotions. Despite of her brief appearance in the show, she is definitely one of the best.

28 Neptr

I like him a lot he is funny

Neptr is so funny!

I like him when he tried to kill fp with his foam blaster I kind of wished she would die

29 Snow Golem

Show Golem is awesome he almost died to save a fire dogwolf

30 Billy

BILLY why is he so low on the list? D: He's only in three episodes before they decide to kill him off with the Lich you people make me sad

31 King Of Ooo

This isn't an evil character but this guy is the new ruler of the Candy Kingdom and defeat Princess Bubblegum on the elections. He is so dumb. I hope Princess Bubblegum is take it back the kingdom. - 05yusuf09

I want princess bubblegum back

Best character

I love to hate him

32 Fern

Don't hate on him! He is not a clone, he's still Finn and I feel bad for him because he DIED and that means Finn DIED. He was another Finn trying to help save prismo. - pandaluver3009

True fern is way better than marshall. Fern is such a precious flower (cough) horrible plant pun (cough)


Fern is one of the best even if he was evil. If you saw the finale (SPOILERS), he was at first evil and wanted to be better than Finn. Over time, he did come to his senses after Jake shows the two their repressed memories they shared. Fern even says himself: "I'll fight for Ooo down to my last blade." As he slowly disintegrates. Best boi UWU

Lol I kinda like Fern, he's a pretty cool anti-villain. - AlphaQ

33 James Baxter the Horse

I just love horses! Plus he travels around on a BEACH BALL, how cool is that.

"James baxter the horse"... not "james" haha but yes I love james baxter he is cute in a weird way

I love horses I love this little horse he is funny and cool

James is PB's helper with finn and jake when they went in the gorge for the dirt and got chased by acid zombies. He died for his friends, but got regenerated at his funeral. laugh out loud

34 Pig

Is this Tree Trunks' husband or the Card Wars pig? I can't tell.

"I floop the pig. No! " No further explanation needed.

35 Ghost Princess

She's one of my favorite princesses, along with Flame Princess and Raggedy Princess

In her big episode she was a creep that made her really cool

She was a weirdo but I liked her

36 Slender Man

This better be a joke. Just because you don't like the show doesn't mean you bash those who do. - Garythesnail

I've already seen this "SLENDERMAN" in the topten list of the best couple in AT one. I mean, if you don't like AT, SUIT YOURSELF! THERE ARE PEOPLE HERE WHO LIKE AT AND YOU (the person who put this SLENDERMAN here) don't HAVE TO SCREW IT UP!

It would be funny if he made an appearance and nobody noticed.

Lol, Slender Man is here - 05yusuf09

37 The Moon

YASSS The moon is obviously the best character in adventure time ever.And by the way I totally ship the moon with hierophant.




38 Starchy

Starchy adds a comic relief effect to the show, and... Wait for it.. He is immortal! Yeah! He has been blown up, eaten, smashed bashed and crashed and yet he still is here for the next episode, like Kenny. And he's loved by all of the candy kingdom. Any one that can come back from 2 zombie apocalypses (even though he died during both) has to be #1! We love you starchy!

Starchy. it's not clear why you aren't married.

39 Flambo

Cute, little ball of flame.

"There I cast flame shield on ya. Also I spat on ya"

Funny and awesome I wish I was made of fire

Fart... fart... from a rock. He looks so cute.

40 Hotdog Princess

I don't know the dog is cute

Underrated help

41 Wildberry Princess

She's my fave princess

She's the cutest

42 The Vampire King
43 Cosmic Owl

Who can the cosmic owl have no votes yet?

44 Sue

Must I explain? You all know why

45 Shoko

The epic past life of Finn needs to go way up the list.

She's so cool :0

46 Ricardio

Who put this here?

I Agree! Who did this

Quite cool. Not the best character.

Who put this guy here?

47 Princess Chewypaste

She only made one appearance and that was in the comic

48 Giuseppe

You're not fooling anyone, HAMBO. We know it's you.

Thanks for the crabapples Giuseppe


49 Susan Strong

She should be a main character

Her backstory is interesting - Lunala

Her story is so amazing! I love that they don't forget such great characters like Susan I also love there story on how everything used to be Normal but then the world turned upside Down basically sorry I'm babbling but Susan is the best! 😀😊😃

50 Stephanie

I meant that Jessica was making out with Mark behind Ton's back!

Stephanie The Wolf
LSP"Stephanie, Sue, Can You Guys Keep A Secret? ""Okay Melissa Is Making Out With Brad Behing Tony's Back""Do You THink We Should Say Something
