Top Adventure Time Characters

The Top Ten

1 Marceline Marceline

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

I love Marceline for many reasons, she's a vampire (love em), she's an amazing singer, she eats the color red (:P), and she's super pretty. Plus, just her whole personality just makes her an amazing character. She should be at least 2nd place.

Marceline is so cool. Her outfit choices and hair are always edgy and inspirational, her genderswap is equally as cool, and her past and intricate relationships with ice king and princess bubblegum are very interesting. She beats Finn but narrowly because as I find out more about his past the more I like him, but marceline is just so perfectly imperfect, she gets my #1

2 Jake

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

He has an awesome backstory

3 Finn

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

He matures a lot throughout the series and likes helping people - Lunala

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.

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

BMO is my favorite, yes I am peeing.

Bmo is so funny - Lunala

5 Ice King 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.

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

I love the flashback episodes of Simon and Marcy. It just shows you how good of a person he was, sacrificing his very mind, soul and sanity to save Marcy's life. Screw Finn, Simon's the real hero. If it wasn't for him, Marcy would have most likely been killed. It feels sad that Simon (now the Ice King) doesn't remember Marceline. There is a touching episode on it, which I believe is called "Remember Me" or something.

At first he just wanted to kidnap princess bubblegum but now we see its deeper than that - Lunala

6 Flame Princess Flame Princess Fame Princess Is a Princess made out of fire and lives in her kingdom ruled by here evil father, Flame King. Here first time shown in Adventure Time was in the episode " Hot to the touch " ( season 4, episode 1) She is Finn's Girlfriend. She appears in episodes like, " Burning Low, " " Vault of Bones, more.

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.

This character is lame because she is rude to ice king,rude to finn,rude to flame king,and is an inconsiderate bogan redneck twit

7 Lumpy Space Princess 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 just love her! She’s just got that sass that really cracks me up. She might be selfish, spoiled and melodramatic, but she’s still a good “person”, because she’s willing to sacrifice herself for her friends and the ones she loves. In my opinion she’s the quirkiest character and on of the (personality wise) most well-ballanced characters on the show! And I’m lovin’ her voiceXD #GoLSP

8 Princess Bubblegum 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

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

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.

Princess Bubblegum isn't portrayed as the Damsel in Distress. She may get kidnapped sometimes but she can stand up for herself and she's pretty smart too. - AlphaQ

9 Gunter Gunter

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.

He's really funny all the time.

10 Marshall Lee Marshall Lee

Though he didn't really show up much at all, I still adore him! The recent episode, Bad Little Boy, should bump him up to the top ten! That's just my opinion though, I guess.

Man this guy only had a few minutes on screen and he already has more fans then Edward Cullen!

Marshall lee is the best

Marshall is AWESOME! Even he only showed up twice or so but he has so much fan art it's mind blowing. Plus gotta gotta give him a thumbs up for his song in Bad Little Boy

He is cooler than stupid edward cullen - Lunala

The Contenders

11 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

Fiona and Cake are cool. I hope ice king gets to meet them for real - Lunala

12 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.

13 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!

Why does it matter to u

14 Lady Rainicorn 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!

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!

Uh, just the language. I liked Lady Rainicorn, and it looks like candy to me

15 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!

He is a little worm - Lunala

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.

Awesome - Lunala

17 Cinnamon Bun

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.

I used to like Cinnamon Bun but then he destroyed Finn and Flame Princess. have you seen all the fictions people have made about Finn and FP? Some candy thing is dating a girl made of fire!
I wish Cinnamon Bun's fire proof whatever will just go off and FP will burn him. if the kingdom doesn't do it first.
and worst of all, he's smart now. he was better off stupid

20 Earl of Lemongrab 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

21 Jake Jr.

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

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

She has the same voice as Mabel lol

22 Tree Trunks

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!

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

Wish I could try her apple pie - Lunala

23 Snow Golem
24 Joshua the Dog
25 Magic Man

Probably one of the most powerful characters in the show. His carefree attitude and jerkiness makes for an awesome character. He also has a mysterious backstory behind him as well.

Hell yeah I love this character even though he's such a huge jerk.I'm glad they bought him back in as a proper character in the latest seasons

Yeah he is a jerk but still funny

An annoying jerk but in a very funny way - Lunala

31 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

32 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!

33 Prismo

Are you kidding me!? He is the almighty prismo!

Prismo should be #1! He's so great! He always thinks of his friends first and he's so funny. I'm so excited to see him in new episodes.

He is referred to as "the almighty" yet has a regular conversation with Jake and even informs Jake of the flaws in his wishes. He's so cool!

I am sure he would be so great to hang out with! Also he is a wish master and lives in a time room, how cool is that?

35 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

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

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.

37 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.

Simon is a cinnamon roll

Isn't there, like, an actual penny on Mars? That would be funny.

41 Flame Prince Flame Prince

Flame Prince deserves a bigger part on the show. He's a very interesting character, and I could see him having a romantic relationship with the Ice Queen or Marceline.

Flame Prince already kissed Fionna on the cheek at the comics! And he's so adorable...
I recommend reading the comics, you'll love Flame Prince!
I hope they make an episode that Flame Prince actually talks!
No offense, but "the prince who wanted everything"didn't let him talk!

I'm never big fan of the gender swapped version but yeah I hate Flame Princess/ Flame Prince and their fans. - 05yusuf09

He's hotter than Marshall
