*** Her potential relationship with the Ice King now that she [[spoiler: Has Magic Man's powers]] that we now know is linked to "madness" and "sadness". Is it better for her to [[spoiler: Become as crazy as the Ice King and let them be crazy together forever and Simon never being healed]] or is that far more tragic than him just dying. Is the only really happy ending [[spoiler: her healing him]]? It really all comes down to how the viewer interprets the effects of M+M+S.

* AngstWhatAngst: Subverted with Finn, who for the first few seasons is bizarrely upbeat about everything. But as he gets older, "the vault" is seen as not a good idea, he fucks up hard regarding romance(losing Princess Bubblegum to outside influences and Flame Princess due to his emotional manipulations), and he goes into straight clinical depression regarding his [[spoiler: father and losing his arm]]. Same goes with Jake and his kids. At first he's fine with them growing up so fast because looking after them was too much responsibility, but then really gets melancholy about it, and season six goes into their point of view, as although he misses them, all they know is that he's neglected them all except Jake Jr.
** In-universe (and played for attempted laughs,) Ice King didn't care at all that Princess Monster Wife died, instead despairing over the fact that she "gave away all [his] stuff".
*** He also got over Finn's "death" pretty fast in "What Have You Done?" to the point that it's depressing for Finn.
** Lemonhope is a cheerful, chipper little boy despite a life of being abused by a violent, unstable father, witnessing the abuse of all of his siblings, and eventually witnessing his father eating his other father. Despite all of that, he remains, seemingly, optimistic and hopeful, hence his name. This turns out to be because he is very self-absorbed; if he is happy and free then he doesn't have to worry about anything else.
*** To be fair, he is plagued by nightmares.

** Lumpy Space Princess: Some people enjoy her presence, others find her annoying and obnoxious. She has become more a borderline [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] as the series went on.



* DryDockedShip: Princess Bubblegum and Marceline. Olivia Olsen confirmed that they were ex-girlfriends, but that the show wasn't allowed to portray it as TV executives for kids' shows are usually wary of showing same-sex couples out of fear of backlash from advertisers and viewers (though ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', ''Clarence'', and ''TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' have shown that it can be done with little to no controversy[[note]]besides being edited/altered on international airings in countries that aren't as tolerant of homosexuality as North America is[[/note]]).

* PerverseSexualLust: A lot of this is diverted towards [[FetishFuelStationAttendant Marceline]]. Arguably, even ''more'' of this is directed towards her GenderFlip counterpart [[{{Bishonen}} Marshall]] [[TallDarkAndHandsome Lee]].

** With ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow,'' though the creators are colleagues, both shows helped in reinvigorating CartoonNetwork after its infamous NetworkDecay, and there are ''Adventure Time'' fans who also like ''Regular Show'' (and vice versa).

* TheScrappy:
** While he's more of a base breaker, even Lemongrab's fans despised him in during the events of "[[Recap/AdventureTimeS5E3FiveMoreShortGraybles Five More Short Graybles]]" and especially "[[Recap/AdventureTimeS5E3FiveMoreShortGraybles Too Old]]", where he first ate his clone alive [[AbusiveParent and then started to abuse both his clone and their children.]] However, his characterization in Lemonhope (as a straight-up BigBad) and The Mountain (as TheAtoner) has started to ease him out of Scrappy territory and back into his position as a base breaker.
** Lumpy Space Princess also gets a lot of hate due to some of her terrible actions, and refusal to go through CharacterDevelopment. For example she blames everyone else (especially her parents and Bubblegum) for her problems, stalks and attacks boys (the pizza boy and [[spoiler: many in the fandom believe she raped Finn. Whether it was rape or just making-out, it's clear her advances were unwanted and haunted Finn]]), terrorizes villagers ("The Monster"), abandoning Sweet P. and destroying Tree Trunks's house ("Be Sweet"), committing an act of terror against the Candy Kingdom ("Bad Timing"), and for all intents and purposes- killing her boyfriend (also "Bad Timing"). And that isn't even all of it. A bit of a BaseBreakingCharacter because some fans find this funny.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: [[spoiler:Many fans were rightfully pissed off when the arc involving Finn losing his arm, which had been foreshadowed forever, was clumsily resolved in "Breezy" where Finn's arm just grew back. Season 7 rectifies this by having him lose his arm AGAIN, this time giving him a robot arm, as had been foreshadowed previously.]]
** Lemongrab (both 1 and 2) has always been one of the most polarizing characters in the fandom and their {{Flanderization}} in season 5 has only pissed fans off even more. The creators resolved this by [[spoiler:blowing him up and having PB construct a new Lemongrab. The new Lemongrab is much more stable than either of his predecessors while still keeping some of the original Lemongrab's personality quirks.]]



** Princess Bubblegum is one of the most infamous examples; one half of the fandom views her as an adorable, smart and likable character while others view her as a tyrannic monster. The show, on the other hand, seems to present ''both'' interpretations as being somewhat accurate, portraying PB as wanting to be kind and meaning well, but having been alive for so long she's prone to making decisions based solely on the long-term and not taking into consideration other people's immediate needs or feelings.

** "The Cooler", as well as several events throughout season 6 and 7 have had her undergo CharacterDevelopment, which has somewhat redeemed her in the eyes of some of her haters.

** Ash, Marceline's boyfriend, also gets a lot of hate due to his selfish attitude and his [[DomesticAbuse abusive and manipulative behaviour towards his girlfriend]]. Naturally, this is the most pronounced among fans of Marceline.
