** It's implied that since his puppies matured into adulthood faster then he thought they would (to point he's actually ''younger'' than them), he's under the impression that they really don't need him anymore; unlike Finn a growing boy who definitley needs him. Or it could be Jake just being Jake.

* TeensAreShort: He's quite a bit shorter than most of the human-sized cast. Justified somewhat in the earlier episodes, where he's only twelve, but he continues to remain pretty short into his mid-teens.

* BadassAbnormal: [[spoiler:He eventually gains the ability to generate a psychic limb, giving him super powers. He loses that, but later on the Grass Sword's remains give him the power to turn his arm into a powerful vine tentacle.]]



* BadassNormal: When he's not borrowing wizard powers from talking tadpoles or summoning ice shurikens. He beat [[spoiler:the Lich]] with a ''sweater''. [[spoiler:Albeit not at full strength]].

* BigBrotherInstinct: He is ''fiercely'' protective over Jake, despite being the ''younger'' brother.
** In "Evicted", Marceline kind of killed Jake for a minute. Finn's reaction was... [[http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/1408/lolfinn.png not pretty.]]
** In "To Cut a Woman's Hair", the witch merely uses Jake as a cushion (albeit in the context of Finn's requiring someone to be in "danger" in order to help her), and Finn charges.
** When Jake is transformed into a Lumpy Space guy.

* HesBack: "Billy's Bucket List". Season five particularly deconstructed his heroism, with hormones taking precedent and making him act like a jerk, but in said episode he's determined to finish Billy's list and conquers his fear of the ocean. Though, with the revelation of his [[spoiler:human father still being alive]], more angst is sure to come.

* StockShonenHero: {{Deconstructed}}. At the series' start, Finn was a simple-minded yet righteous KidHero who lives to right wrongs and go on dangerous adventures. The problems started when he slowly came to see the GrayingMorality of the world around him, and his impulsiveness bit him in the buns as he entered adolescence without anyone qualified to offer him any helpful wisdom or guidance, leading him to make some really dumb moves and miss out on two {{Love Interest}}s. Nowadays, while he's never stopped being a hero and fighting evil, he's a lot more of a mature MellowFellow, a sharp contrast to the early days when he was well known for his proud declaration of "I'll slay anything that's evil, that's my deal!"

* HollywoodScience: In general, she pulls this off quite nicely. It's taken to a whole new level in "Five Short Graybles" when she uses [[WhenThingsSpinScienceHappens centrifugal force]], growth and shrink serums a la Disney/AliceInWonderland, TwoBeingsOneBody teleportation of a jellyfish and a balloon, WhiteMagic with a BlackMagic feel, FrickinLaserBeams, molecular fabrication, [[MartialArtsAndCrafts karate]], a [[BatterUp baseball bat]] and levitation. All to '' '''[[MundaneMadeAwesome make a sandwich]]'''.''
** Keep in mind that this was "the most perfect sandwich to ever exist, or will exist in the confines of space-time".

** It seems a large part of this is because she views the majority of the candy people as small children who require constant supervision. Honestly, given their actions, she's not that far off.
