!!This comic book series provides examples of:

* AlternateContinuity: The comic series has introduced two key developments that may make it diverge from the cartoon--[[spoiler:the Lich is ''thrown into the sun'']] and [[spoiler:the missing chunk of the planet is restored]]. Also, in issue #11, we find out that in this continuity, [[spoiler:Billy is still alive]].
** An alternate theory is that the events of the comic book take place during the fourth season, before "The Lich".
** [[http://ryannorth.tumblr.com/post/23729809967/something-that-comes-up-pretty-often-is-this This]] states that it ''is'' canon, and set during and/or after the show. The blog entry notes that there should only be ''small'' divergences due to little finicky last minute additions to the show. Given the two major divergences mentioned above, either this is BlatantLies or there's a rather depressing amount of StatusQuoIsGod (if not ForegoneConclusion) for the next few seasons on the show (compared to the comic, anyway).
*** [[spoiler: It is heavily implied that the Lich hasn't come around in a while in the comic. And the missing chunk isn't that big of a deal in the show, it's just kind of there.]]
*** The show creators, on the other hand, have explicitly stated that the comics are not canon and are never taken into consideration when making episodes of the show.
* ArcVillain: The Lich.
* ArtInitiatesLife: Desert Princess's specialty is making animated sand sculptures.
* ArtShift: In Issue 11, Finn, Jake and Marceline go into BMO to play "Super Guts Punch 3", which is done in pixel art.
* BagOfHolding: The comic's first story involves the Lich using one in an attempt to suck up the entire planet. Then he'll toss the bag into the sun.
* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]]; the comic notes that the gems allow Finn and Jake to breathe in space.
* BetterThanABareBulb: Pretty much everything gets viciously lampshaded either by the characters in the narrative or via notes in the margins.
* BigNo: Delivered by Finn when he and Jake enter the magic bag.
* BloodierAndGorier: There's some blood in this.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: "[[HyndenWalch Hynden]], is that you?"
* BrickJoke: In Issue 27, PB calls Finn and Jake to help out with a ghost problem, except that they're not home because they are the ghosts (unintentionally) causing the problem (don't worry, they get better). So, PB is about to call her back-up choice, which Finn hopes isn't a couple of knock-offs named something like Flynn and Blake. It's actually a team like the Film/{{Ghostbusters}}, but guess who shows up at the end of Issue 29, after the storyline is over?
* CanonForeigner: Desert Princess and Water Princess.
* {{Catchphrase}}[=/=]TitleDrop
* ChooseYourOwnAdventure: In Issue 10 and the ''[=KaBOOM!=] Summer Blast'' Free Comic Book Day Edition reprint.
* ContinuityNod:
** In the third issue, Finn refers to advice given to him by Abraham Lincoln in the past on Mars, which is a hallucination he had in the cartoon's pilot.
** The mysterious missing chunk of the planet is explored [[spoiler:and filled in]].
** Issue 7 shows Bubblegum wearing her rock T-shirt from "What was Missing".
** Issue 11 references the mess made the last time Finn and Jake tried going into BMO to play video games, in the episode "Guardians of Sunshine".
** In Issue 18, the treasure of Hunson Abadeer's branch of the dungeon turns out to be [[spoiler: a moldy old pile of french fries, implied to be the same fries of Marceline's that he ate according to "It Came From the Nightosphere" and "Memory of a Memory".]]
** In Issue 21, Princess Bubblegum calls back the events of "Slumber Party Panic" when she says the most the Gumball Guardians will do to trouble-makers is "make you to do their math homework".
** Issue 28 features Anti-Ghost Princess, who is Ghost Princess from the same-titled episode back from the dead and busting Ghosts throughout Ooo.
* DependingOnTheArtist
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: Issue 25 starts off with Carl the Gem's creation in the dinosaur age. And the story of a random ''TyrannosaurusRex''.
** Dinosaur fossils frequently show up in Issues 1 and 2.
* EvilGloating: The Lich is more verbose in this, which irks many fans.
** Kewlboy (formally Ewlbo) frequently does this.
* FakeOutFadeOut: At the beginning of Issue 3.
* FanFic: In-universe, again by the Ice King, titled [[TeasingCreator "Fionna and Cake meet Finn and Jake"]].
* FlippingTheTable: Finn does this when he gets frustrated in Issue 3.
-->'''Finn:''' HOW! COME! WE! ''(table flip)'' '''[[color:orange:KEEP NOT WINNING?!]]'''
** Jake tries to do this in Issue 5, but fails to realize that Adventure Tim has nailed his kitchen table to the floor.
* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: In Issue 10 and the ''[=KaBOOM!=] Summer Blast'' Free Comic Book Day Edition reprint, Finn and Jake end up under the influence of the reader in a ChooseYourOwnAdventure story. All their methods of getting their free will back involve messing with the reader.
* FusionDance: [[spoiler:The second issue implies that Desert Princess is actually an amalgamation of various Candy citizens.]]
* FutureBadass: Seen in the TimeTravel story arc in issues 6-9.
* GilliganCut: While Finn and Jake explore an abandoned military factory in issue 26, Finn remarks "I can't imagine a single thing our pals could be doing that's more interesting than exploring this crazy old dungeon!" Cue panels of Marceline fighting a dragon, Lumpy Space Princess fighting [[RobotMe a robotic version of herself]], and Princess Bubblegum... sitting in bed, reading a book.
* GrievousBottleyHarm: PB attempts this on the Lich with a broken flask.
* HandshakeSubstitute: The fist bump, which the comic notes there can not be enough of in any story, whether fiction or nonfiction.
* HurlItIntoTheSun: The Lich's plan with the entire planet with the help of a BagOfHolding. [[spoiler:He ends up being cast into the sun himself]].
* LampshadeWearing: Lemongrab ''and'' his Lemon Camel are seen wearing lampshades after Jake's crazy party at the start of issue 7.
* MakingASplash: Water Princess.
* NoTimeToExplain: Said by Finn when he and Jake appear out of nowhere in Issue 3, and then Princess Bubblegum says it's clear what's going on.
* OcularGushers: How [[MakingASplash Water Princess]] uses her powers.
* OpeningShoutOut: The first issue opens with Finn and Jake filming the show's opening. The second issue again imitates the opening to show the damage the Lich has done to Ooo.
* PaintingTheMedium: The Lich speaks with white text on a black speech balloon. Marceline speaks with yellow all-caps text on a magenta speech balloon when she's a monster.
* TheReveal: "Adventure Me" from Issue 20 is from the point of view of an unknown friend of Finn and Jake, who turns out to be [[spoiler: Princess Bubblegum.]]
* RobotWar: In issue 7, Finn and Jake accidentally travel into the future and find [[spoiler:BMO]] accidentally started one.
* ShipTease: Issue 8 makes it pretty clear how Ryan North feels about the twist at the end of "[[spoiler:Too Young]]." Also counts as a subversion of ShipSinking from the show, if the book is canon.
* ShoutOut:
** [[Webcomic/SweetBroAndHellaJeff "We are doing this, bros!! We are making this happen!!"]]
** Issue 11 has a montage of scenes from Super Guts Punch 3 featuring references to ''VideoGame/{{Pitfall}}'', ''VideoGame/QBert'', ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1'', ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'', and ''ExciteBike''.
** Issue 1 shows a cross-section of the ground... including a [[Webcomic/DinosaurComics fossilized T. rex about to stomp on a house]]. Considering that Ryan North writes the comic...
*** Also in the cross-section of the ground there are three prehistoric mammal skulls reminiscent of [[Film/IceAge Manny, Sid, and Diego]].
** In Issue 21, Peppermint Butler tells a bunch of dignitaries here to see Princess Bubblegum that [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros "The Princess is in another castle."]]
** Issue 25's intro is a shout out to the writer's webcomic ''Webcomic/DinosaurComics''. There's even a small caption on the bottom of the page that says: "I am enjoying these... these Dinosaur Comics. HOPEFULLY YOU ARE AS WELL?"
** In Issue 26, the machine that turns Finna and Jake into ghosts resembles the machine from ''Film/{{Casper}}'' that turns ghosts into people.
* SignatureStyle: It's pretty obvious that [[Webcomic/DinosaurComics Ryan North]] writes the comic. Perhaps...super obvious?
* SpinOff: ''ComicBook/AdventureTimeMarcelineAndTheScreamQueens'' and ''ComicBook/AdventureTimeWithFionnaAndCake''.
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike:
** "'''[[color:dodgerblue:AMAZING DRILL HANDS!!]]'''"
** After the earth is restored, Desert Princess goes missing, and Jake tries to figure out where she went by imitating a princess and saying, "I'm the new princess in town! I'm super nice and everybody likes me!" Cut to the kidnapped Desert Princess, who is bewildered as to why Ice King would kidnap her because she's super nice and everybody likes her.
* StylisticSuck: The Ice King's new fanfiction is about as terrible as the last one.
* ThisIsADrill: Finn and Jake's initial plan to escape the bag.
* UnsoundEffect: ''[[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120206180418/adventuretimewithfinnandjake/images/2/24/Tumblr_lyuizoKusf1qcb6pdo1_1280.jpg write write write write]]''
* UnusualEuphemism: Staying true to the cartoon. "Asymptotic!"
* ViolenceReallyIsTheAnswer: Again, staying true to the show. "But there's gotta be '''SOMETHING''' we can punch to escape!"
* [[WhatTheHellPlayer What The Hell, Reader?]]: Marceline [[BreakingTheFourthWall calls out the reader]] in the second issue for [[MediumAwareness turning the page]] instead of staying to help her fight the Lich.
* WorldOfPun:
** There is a princess who lives in the magic bag named Desert Princess... who's made up of various ''desserts''.
** What time is it? Ad Venture Time!
