Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfContinuity: Level 4. While in the beginning the show qualified as Level 2, it upgraded to Level 3 once [[spoiler:The Lich and the Ice King's backstory]] were introduced. It was bumped up again to level 4 in season 4, when the show began featuring more multi-part stories, {{Call Back}}s and {{Sequel Episode}}s.

** "Dad's Dungeon" had elements of this until Jake, who know everything that is going on, tells Finn.

** Marceline and Princess Bubblegum, according to ''[[AllThereInTheManual The Art of Ooo]]''. They're actually called sociopaths and described as "selfishly good and selflessly evil": Bubblegum has all of her subjects under surveillance so she could [[TooDumbToLive protect them from themselves]] and nearly destroyed the admittedly [[CharacterAlignment evil-aligned]] Flame Kingdom so [[WellIntentionedExtremist she could protect her own]], resulting in Flame Princess telling her she's just not a good person [[spoiler: which causes PB to reflect on her behavior and shut down her surveillance room]]; Marceline "[[JerkWithAHeartOfGold hurts people on purpose]] [[IJustWantToHaveFriends so they won't leave her when she hurts them accidentally]]". Ironically Bubblegum's [[CelibateHero intimacy]] [[MarriedToTheJob issues]] were caused by Marceline (who she saw chronologically as a "babysitter/CoolBigSis/best friend") abandoning her when she as she became more mature because "Marceline likes [being friends with] kids".

Added DiffLines:

* UnexpectedlyDarkEpisode: ''Adventure Time'' has several episodes like this, including "I Remember You", "Simon and Marcy", and "Evergreen". The first two deal with the backstory of Ice King, generally a comic relief villain, and reveal him to be a TragicVillain with [[WasOnceAMan a sympathetic backstory]]. [[spoiler: He used to be Betty's fiance Simon, before wearing the Ice Crown drove him insane to the point where he doesn't remember who he was.]] The third follows the history of Ice King's crown and has a DownerEnding.

** While not as noticed by fans like other examples, a possibly better example is the King of Ooo. He fulfills pretty much all of the requirements to count as one. He shows a LackOfEmpathy (willing to enslave, or [[WouldHurtAChild apparently even kill a baby]]) and [[NeverMyFault Imperviousness to Shame]] (well, he thought he may be a bad ruler for a moment, but a moment later decided it's all Bubblegum's fault); he's a ConsummateLiar and [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulator]], who tricked nearly all of the Candy Kingdom into recognizing his authority; has a [[{{Pride}} Grandiose Sense of]] [[ItsAllAboutMe Self-Worth]], apparently genuinely believing he should indeed rule all of Ooo.

** [[spoiler:In "Fionna and Cake", Fionna sinks the Fionna/Gumball ship when she realizes that she's not interested in dating him.]]
** [[spoiler:Flame Princess dumps Finn for "betraying" her in "Frost & Fire", then proceeds to act ambivalently toward him in "Earth & Water". In "The Red Throne", she reiterates that because of his "betrayal", Flame Princess no longer loves Finn in any way. The ship was finally sunk in "Breezy", when Doctor Princess mentions Finn doesn't talk to Flame Princess anymore, possibly due to Finn thinking Flame Princess is dating Cinnamon Bun after the events of "The Red Throne".]]

* ShaggyDogStory: "The Box Prince." Finn goes to great lengths to assist a cat prince in retaking his cat kingdom...only to have everyone (including the prince himself) just wander off indifferently when it's done. [[FridgeBrilliance It's a kingdom composed entirely of cats.]] They don't ''care''.
