Best Adventure Time Episodes

The Top Ten

1 I Remember You

Fantastic episode with the most heartwarming moment in the series. Truly shows what adventure time is capable of and deserves to be first.

You would probably think that I have favorites. Apparently I do. I love marceline. She's so awesome. This episode will also make you cry like her in this episode. This may lack action but it will certainly touch your heart. Add the great voice of rebecca sugar (voice of marcy), the way she sings there made me cry. Music in this episode is genius.

The sweetest episode... Truly amazing, especially for a weird, awesome show like adventure time. The background of this show is like no other. Almost cried...

So graet episode

2 Simon & Marcy

I am always "the tough one" in a group but I can't help but to cry in this episode. One would appreciate this more if they watched the series "cheers". I always liked the fact that the setting of adventure time is post-apocalyptic. This episode emphasized its setting. This episode is truly my fave. No wonder why it's an emmy award nominee.

This episode was fantastic, probably my favourite episode of all time. I can't believe it's so low.

This episode was beautiful. It was funny, and yet sad at the same time. Seeing Ice King trying to protect Marceline was a very heartwarming sight.

I love this episode this was my favorite episode of all time

3 Card Wars

I thought that AT was going to be the whole emotional girlfriend/boyfriend thing they had changed it into, but then Card Wars came along. It brought back the original, Finn and Jaje messing around hilarity I thought made the best episode. Also, Card Wars seems like a really cool game.

Extremely fun game to watch Finn and Jake play. The game actually seems very fun, and looks very well thought out on the episode creator's part! I also love the "Finn and Jake messing around" part, it's not often we see that. Most of the time we get the episodes focused on a whole adventure time universe and episodes important to the season, but this episode was just pure fun!

It was so funny! I thought adventure time was becoming different and just being about girlfriends and boyfriends but then they made this episode! It's just like the old finn and jake goofing off episodes that I miss a lot. - SammySpore

The game on iOS was cool

4 Frost & Fire

This to me is one of the worst episodes. While the action is indeed awesome, Finn is going out of his way to hurt both the Ice King and Flame Princess just to get wet dreams. - MKBeast

People hate this episode because they say it ruined Finn, I don't believe this though. It simply showed Finn to be imperfect, sure he was a terrible person for what he did, but it was such a good way to show the extreme consequences of your actions. Also, In the seventh season, Finn became much better just with the episode where he is forgiven by FP. - kempokid

It earns the number 3 spot on my top ten worst adventure time episodes because this episode totally destroys Finn's character

This episode was so bad I stopped watching adventure time for a while - YourKingMaractus

5 What Was Missing

This episode is amazing! The music is beautiful, I really love both of the songs, especially I'm just your problem. The characters really open up and we get to see a lot out of them (Marceline in this episode was great, as well as Finn). Not to mention that Jake was hilarious with his "jerk in the band" act. This was just an amazing episode.

The music in this episode was great and the writers portrayed lots of genuine emotion with the rift between PB and Marceline. I think this episode definitely qualifies as one of the best in Adventure time thus far.

I've seen every episode in all 9 seasons of Adventure Time, most of them multiple times, and What Was Missing is still my favourite. The character development was great in just 10 minutes, and the idea was just genius. I still go back and watch this episode every couple of weeks just because I love it so much and it stuck with me more than any other episode.

Mixes the fun of old Adventure Time and the seriousness of new Adventure Time. Told a whole story in 10 minutes. Great character development and a fun villain. Fun to watch and overall a fantastic episode

6 Too Young

This is my favourite episode! :) But the funniest thing is that when my younger brother is angry, he is exactly like Lemongrab! (Well, except that there's no lemon juice rattling around in his head when he laughs. )

The mix of honest yearning and lemongrab make this episode unacceptably great. The episodes like this that build the characters are the best. - sipinii

This is the most mature episode in adventure time. Instead of trying to earn princess bubblegum's love, he waits for her love, because he's too young.

The “you really smell like dog buns” part makes me laugh every time. - Lunala

7 Vault of Bones

Such a great episode. Really shows the relationship between Finn and FP

FP looks cuter when her hair is shorter!

DO THE SPLITS. 10/10 - AlphaQ

8 The Vault

The Vault is a great episode, one which truly revealed Bubblegum's character and rapped up many of the show's strangest mysteries.

Such a sweet episode

This should be higher

Really great to watch after season 6 finale!

9 Burning Low

Finn and Flame Princess FOREVER! This episode has GOT to be the best, plus it has the most amount of viewers, with 3.5 Million viewers, beating the record set by 'Fionna & Cake' with 3.3. I don't think PB is jealous, okay maybe a little; but at least she has valid reasons.
This has got to be the number one. The most talked-about love triangle, FLAME PRINCESS, FINN AND PRINCESS BUBBLEGUM!

Oh finn + flame princess is just beautiful and romantic and the princess bubblegum is jealous

This is easily my favourite episode; Finn and Flame Princess are so cute together and this episode proves they are made for each other also Princess Bubblegum is jealous

The scene where Finn explains to Princess Bubblegum how he moved on is beyond amazing!

10 Puhoy

Great episode! Finn lived a whole other life in an instance of real time in another dimension. Great story line and concept, one of my all time favorite episodes

Adventure Time did great in 2014, and this is one of the best. I wonder if Finn loses the vine arm (first seen in The Comet) and gets a robot arm like in this episode when he is grown up.

The Original Roy. When I first watched that episode of Rick and Morty I thought of this episode. Definitely one of the best

Somebody please tell me how Frost and Fire is number 4! - 445956

The Contenders

11 Marceline's Closet

When the spider bit Jake... Funiest reaction ever!

I LOVE THIS EPISODE. I showed my sister and she hasnt stopped laughing especially at the part where Jake got bitten by the spider

Not much adventure in this episode, but this is to Adventure Time what This is My Jam to Regular Show. Funny, funny, funny! - YoshiDragon240

Finn sees Marceline naked!

12 From Bad to Worse

It was the first adventure time episode I watched when I was 10. I thought it was hilarious - SammySpore

Best episode by far. Deserves to be on top 10

I do not actually like this episode. I do not know why.

The candy kindom gets infested and turn into zombies.

13 Memories of Boom Boom Mountain

Hilarious episode! Nice to have a random story like this with no relation to plot that's still so well done. As a side note, I thought it was fun to see an episode centered around the rough-housing village. Those vikings are so funny!

A good one, problem is that the guy who voiced the mountain man also voiced Hector on Sanjay and Craig. - 445956

I LOVE memories of boom-boom mountain. IT'S HALARIOUS

That one word...

BOOM BOOM

Wait, that's two - Sassy13crown

14 No One Can Hear You

The first time I saw this episode I spent like two minutes shocked after the episode finished just looking at the screen. It"s the scariest and weirdest episode of all the show, and this episode is not for kids! But I loved it, it gives me the creeps... Brr!

This episode definitely had the darkest feel to it. It really creeped me out. I think it would make a good movie. I felt bad for jake cause he went crazy.

As much as I love the "Simon & Marcy episodes and the episodes where Finn and Jake just goof off, this episode is fantastic. It has a dark tone, a scary concept (while still having a satisfying ending), it had a lot of suspense. This plot is good enough to be turned into a movie.

The most unique episode. The episode that me love adventure time a lot more

15 The Creeps

Good mystery and Finn was in a suit. What's more awesome than that?

The green female ghost in the bathroom gave me nightmares! One of the most disturbing AT episodes I have seen!

This episode is so funny. Prince Hottbod, the bathroom screaming, the whole Brad thing- I just love watching it. And the part with the ghost lady always mystifies me. (even though I've seen the vault I just always thought it was a cool scene) - seerOfmind

I can't BELIVE THIS I NOT HIGHER! This the best episode of the show, and the most dark. I can't BELIVE THEY FIT A MURDER MYSTERY INTO ADVENTURE TIME!

16 My Two Favorite People

Just because I love Tiffany laugh out loud - mrpotatoheadchernobylstyle

Jake tries to get lay rainicorn and finn better friends but things get complicated.

17 Death in Bloom

The very best the show has to offer! The animation is incredibly creative and interesting, the characters are all on top form, and the jokes are hilarious, especially in the first half. Also, how great is Peppermint Butler?

I like the way Death is portrayed in this episode, a deer skeleton living in a castle of light.

Awesome episode, Peppermint butler is my favourite character

Peppermint Butler is awesome!

18 Dungeon

"Hello, Frank the human... (gasp) how did you almost know my name? "
"Lady, you are SICK! " this should be in the top ten

Approximate knowledge of many things

19 The Witch's Garden

It's so funny finn jake say that the whitch has a husband but its funny to here her say I don't have a husband in her angry voice

"WAIT. You're not a doughnut, you're a BAGEL! Lies, Lies EVERYWHERE! " I died laughing.

I love the witch in this episode

This episode was funny. Jake basically killed a Witch by pissinf her off too much. Lol. 10/10 - AlphaQ

20 Mortal Folly

This episode introduces the Lich, who has real menace and one of the most badass evil laughs ever heard on televison. The main plot also makes for one grand quest. Finn and Jake are fully aware of the stakes, but they handle it in a way that is unique to this show. When you hear this exchange (they're chasing after the lich)
Jake: This is our first fate of the world deal!
Finn: Yeah, man! We gotta shut this fool down hardcore!
It's just awesome.

It was nice to see Ice King working with Finn and Jake to defeat The Lich

In this episode, the most evil of evil anatagonist is introduced. He is the lich

21 Stakes

This isn't an episode. It's a miniseries, guy whose brain is made out of spaghetti.

22 Guardians of Sunshine
23 Jake Suit

This episode really funny! One of the best

24 Holly Jolly Secrets

OH MY GOD! What can I really say about this episode? It revealed the tragic backstory of the ice king, the jokes are HILARIOUS and its just has great plot overall. Go watch this episode.. My 2nd favorite episode.

The reveal of Ice King's past is one of the greatest scenes in all of animation.

25 Hitman

Seeing the Ice king hiring a Hitman to literally "Hit" Finn and Jake is awesome. Then seeing the Ice King hiring a "Hitman Hitman" to Hit the Hitman is just amazing. - hockeyvampire

26 Root Beer Guy

One of the best. It is also very dramatic in parts. I like it when the banana guards think Jake is Princess Bubblegum.

Root Beer Guy is the best AT episode ever.

Should definitely be number 1 this is hilarious and who does not love a dective story?

27 Incendium

Finn and jake thought that Princess Bubblegum is jealous because finn is now hanging out with flame princess

Well, really loved this episode, especially when Finn sang ' All Gummed Inside '

Incendium begins to a disaster: Flame Princess! - 05yusuf09

A great episode with my favorite song from the series - bdcool3

28 Mystery Train

This one was great it showed a lot of mystery and weird stuff and that's what makes adventure time what it is

A murder mystery happens when Jake takes Finn on a train for his 13th birthday.

29 The Limit

Finn and Jake go through a maze for a wish, but Jake is being stretched to the limit.

Literally the funniest episode ever. I was laughing nonstop.

30 Thank You

HOW IS THIS NOT IN THE TOP TEN this was like the most heartwarming episode in adventure time, is wasn't a typical episode, it focused on different characters and gives us a great moral and different perspective of adventure time...this episode was so beautiful..

This is what makes adventure time so diff and awesome from any other shows, it can me you love it even if your favorite character is not there. This is heartwarming and life-affirming. It will teach you a lesson. Watch it.

One of my first episodes, in fact it might be my very first. I was literally crying with happiness at the end.

Although AT blows me away, I often find myself admiring its frequent moments of genius, but not forming an especially strong emotional connection with the characters. This ep is a whopping exception. Very poignant and beautiful and just sublime.

33 The Other Tarts

The royal tart toter's soliloquy is the best writing the show has ever seen: "Hello? Eat my tarts? " and "I'll still be here tomorrow to high five you yesterday my friends. "

34 Jake vs. Me-Mow

I love Jake and Me-mow there my most favorites.

I don't know, I just voted. Laugh out loud!

36 Heat Signature

It was really cool of Marcy to actually care about those two!
Buuut I dislike the ending. (no point on it)

37 The Lich 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.

How is this not an option! My favourite episode by far! I love the sense of adventure and the foreboding feeling throughout! The Lich really can be quite scary! Also this episode ends on a cliffhanger which I love

How is this not an option? My favourite episode by far! I love the darker tone to this episode and the absolute terryfiying nature of the Litch itself! This episode really is Adventure Time at its best! It also end on a cliffhanger and I love that

38 Mystery Dungeon

Seeing all the characters together was so satisfying.

Awesome! Tree Trunks, Shelby, NEPTR, Lemongrab and Ice King ALL go on a quest in a dungeon? That's pretty awesome!

39 Princess Cookie

This episode is surprisingly serious compared to the other episodes and I was surprised to see a relevance to suicide DONE RIGHT (looking at you One Coarse Meal) and its great at the end! - bdcool3

Only episode on T.V. that has ever made me cry. So touching

The only episode on a T.V. show that has ever made me cry

This episode, to me, was sadder than I Remember You. Don't kill me - 445956

41 It Came From the Nightosphere

It came from the penis not nightosphere ya idiot. Lets hate adventure time forever!

The commenter who said let's hate Adventure Time forever needs to be soul-sucked by Hunson Abadeer or something else drastic like that.

42 The Real You

Finn makes himself smarter to give a speech at princess bubblegums since barbecue.

I love this episode, PB kiss Finn on her cheek, by far the funniest AT part I laughed so hard :D - 05yusuf09

43 All the Little People

I enjoyed it because it had mini versions of most of the characters. Magic man gives Finn a small bag. He realises later that their are people in it

This must be in top ten this episode is beautiful! Why its in top 19
?

Definitely a unique episode.

My favorite!

47 Holly Jolly Secrets, Part II

I'm sorry did you mean part 666?

48 The City of Thieves

I LIKED THIS EPISODE BUT THE ENDING WAS GROSS

49 The Hall of Egress

This episode was a actually really interesting to watch. It delves into being within a psychological trap, and the fear of not being able to escape. The ending was a tad confusing, but still interesting!

This is a really cool one! It's so trippy though... That's what I like about it! It was so interesting and mind boggling.

A fantastic episode, definitely deserves a spot on any top ten or even top five list.
