Does anyone think Adventure Time will ever Win Back the Crowd? Anyone? Anyone at all?

You'd need to lose the crowd to win it back. And as much as you hate it, it hasn't really lost the crowd.

I think that on the subpages where examples are sorted in folders by season, we should split the "Season 5" folder into two parts, since that season is twice as long as the other seasons. Part one would contain episodes from "Finn the Human" to "Wizards Only, Fools", and part two would contain everything after that.

Are there any objections?

Okay everyone, I'm gonna do some clean-up on the YMMV page of Adventure Time, a lot of it is way too wordy and/or doesn't make any sense in the context of the show. I will also be rewording some of them to make it more accurate.

Can someone please remove the Depraved Homosexual trope from the listed traits for Lemongrab? I'm not going to bother disputing how depraved or homosexual he might or might not be, but either way it's a blatant misuse of the trope as none of his negative attributes associate at all with his ambiguously gay ones.

Why is there so little focus around Flame Princess outside of episodes dedicated to her? It seems like if the episode is not about her we barely get a comment that she exists.

She's a relatively new character, and of course there are those who would like to pretend she doesn't exist...

Behold the alignment diamond and discuss! Made with 25 recurring characters, except Me-Mow depending on whether or not you count the comics; this is my ballpark guess of what their alignments are.(I'm thinking of moving this from Main discussion to Character discussion, since it has more to do with the characters than general discussion)

This is pretty good! :) But I think the King Worm and Flame Princess should switch places.

Sure Flame Princess is violently emotional and dangerous and her kingdom is full of evil people (or at least her dad is), but she's a bit more Chaotic Neutral than that...

King Worm however brainwashed Finn and Jake into, um... "hugging" him, and then he trapped them in some kind of dream world many seasons later and they had to get out. Although rather minor, he's about as antagonistic as all the other villains like Magic Man or something. :p

I feel it prudent to alert fellow tropers of this and this regarding season 5 and such. I won't link the other trailer, it's easier to find and much more well known.

Possible reference in "Who Would Win?"? If you recall, when Jake and Finn are fighting 'each other,' at one point Finn literally bites Jake's butt. Jake is voiced by John Di Maggio. John Di Maggio's other very well-known character is Bender from 'Futurama.' Whose catchphrase is, "Bite my shiny metal ass!" Hmm.

There is a question on Lemongrab I have. A different user is putting in a ton of scenes in the Nightmare Fuel, Tear Jerker, and Crowning Moment of Funny pages. As in, he says he considers the exact same scene nightmare fuel, tear worthy, and hilarious all at the same time. Is that even allowed? Or is someone just trying to push Lemongrab on everyone?

There is a HUGE section of the Headscratchers page where he's just having a argument with himself (pretending to be different people, even) over Lemongrab. Should we just delete it?
LadyPhantomhive
09:14:57 PM Jun 14th 2013
Not to mention the massive section of the Fridge Horror page dedicated to talking about how awful Lemongrab's situation is. Much of it is exactly the same sentiment posted over and over, with frequent bashing of Princess Bubblegum for bonus points. Might want to delete that too.
KuroKokoro

Does Lumpy Space Princess come off as a Creator's Pet to anyone else? I mean yeah, Pen trying to sound like a valley girl is funny at first, but that's really all there is to her, it seems like. And then it gets annoying to hear this voice for very long.

She's needlessly put into a lot of episodes, too, and rarely does much. I mean, how many plots would be unaffected if some of her cameos were cut out?
halo00to14
07:49:38 PM Jun 4th 2012
The same can be said for a few of the other princesses in the non incidental roles in episodes. Yeah, she can come off as a Creator's Pet, but from a writing stand point, it's an easy setup for an number of jokes, with a more fleshed out back story than say, Breakfast Princess, to play with.

Anyone else think that maybe Marceline and the Ice King are actively avoiding each other? They've only once appeared in the same scene together, at the end of Holly Jolly Secrets II, and Marceline decided to stay outside in the snow instead of joining the rest of the cast in the tree fort.
Pokon

Probably because a episode where the two interact will be saved for some drama. I mean, both are among the few survivers of the GMW, and such a episode would probably deal with the fact that he was like, her dads best friend or something before the whole "turned into a frosty wizerd" thing. On the other hand, she may simply avoid people with apperently magical artifacts, baecause a immortal like her who has been wandering a for a long time has probably picked up on the fact that people with said magical power-granting artifacts are crazy.

The Other Wiki has the description for the season 4 episode "I Remember You" as follows: "The Ice King and Marceline bond over memories." So yes, there probably was a reason that Marceline, at least, was avoiding the Ice King.
SlightlyGrape

You are absolutely right. I kinda suspected somehting like this would happen eventually, but not how it actually did. It even explains why they've been avoiding each other.
LadyPhantomhive
09:17:21 PM Jun 14th 2013
Although they aren't avoiding each other so much now. It seems that, now we've got the big dramatic reveal out of the way, they'll be interacting in a lot more episodes.

Marceline is Beauty of the Beauty Brainsand Brawn trio. Yes, she's the Usagi/Bubbles/Mikuru/Belldandy of the series. She is the one who's in to feelings and relationships.

Bubblegum is the one who finds reasons to push her feelings into a corner. PB can play with Finn as a child, but not as an adult. She can wear the gift, but not in public. She has an image to uphold.

So far Finn has been the brawn who's never far from a sword, but if Susan takes a more prominent role, she might become the "Problem? Smash!" person.

As of the end of season three the show has a REAL Beauty, Brains, Brawn princess/queen trio, with the Flame Princess as the brawn.

Should a note be made of the subversive nature of the show? If nothing else, it is pushing the limits of what's acceptable in what is marketed as and appears to be children's programming. Plus the above average amount of subtext, again in a show marketed towards children.
PeachPit
06:38:56 PM Nov 1st 2011
Not really subversive. I mean, the show knows it has an adult audience as well as a children's audience. The show is still perfectly acceptable to kids.

Eh, most of it is pretty silly and harmless. The radar jokes would just go over kids' heads — the only thing that I'd really consider Harmful to Minors would be some of the darker plot twists, which hit even adult viewers like an emotional punch to the gut, and those are only in a few episodes.

Does anybody else want the Rule 63 episode to become a sort of spin-off? or at least have more episodes made that aren't just silly fanfic written by Ice King?

Also is it just me or is anybody else confused to why Fionna is much older than Finn? Same can be assumed for Cake I guess. I know in the twist ending Fionna is made out to be a strange fan girl for Ice king who'd obviously want a women of legal age. But even in the silly art from the Designer she's older.
PeachPit
06:37:44 PM Nov 1st 2011
Possible Answer- Fionna isn't older than Finn...she looks older because girls hit puberty faster than boys. Possible Answer- She's older because because.

Okay, I was watching the episode where Finn and Jake are trying to create their own movie. In the first few minutes, when they find out that the movies they were showing were "illegal," Here's the dialogue that I thought was interesting:

Finn: "We've been showing these movies, unauthorized." Jake: "But these movies were before the great mushroom war."

Doesn't "Great Mushroom War," seem like another allusion to that this show is set after atomic Armageddon?
