Recap / Adventure Time S 2 E 4 Blood Under The Skin

Go To
To impress a band of knights, Finn endures a series of embarrassing trials to find a legendary suit of armor, known as the Armor of Zelderon.


  • Accidental Pervert: Finn relentlessly gets a barrage of this.
    Woman 1: PERVERT!
  • Big "NEVER!": When Jake tells Finn to put on the "lady armor".
    Jake: Put on the armor! It'll protect you from evil, even ghosts!
  • Censor Suds: At the Swamp of Embarrassment, Finn has to pass through a multitude of showering old people, who display this trope.
  • Continuity Nod: Sir Slicer's minstrel looks like Finn's "imagination man".
  • Embarrassing but Empowering Outfit: The Armor of Zelderon, evidently built for a valkyrie. With it, a person can fly, and be totally impervious to injury, while being totally *ker-chick*.
  • Foreshadowing: The name "Zelderon" sounds kinda feminine. The armor that Finn goes on a quest for actually turns out to have been built for a woman, much to his cringe.
    Finn: (To Jake) Dude, this is lady armor!

  • Minor Injury Overreaction: Finn's reaction to getting a splinter in his finger, which initiates the plot.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: Somehow, Sir Slicer and his pink horse always manage to get to where Finn is.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Choose Goose.
  • Shout-Out:
    • The scene where the fluffy white monster mistakes Finn for a baby of her own species is visually similar to the trope-naming "And Call Him "George"!" scene in Looney Tunes' "The Abominable Snow Rabbit".
    • The mocking Sir Slicer is a parody of Danshaku (or in the English dub, Baron de Ghost) in one of the Unico films.

How well does it match the trope?
