Go To

Jake dreams about his death, and Finn takes action when events from Jake's "croak dream" start to come true.


  • Arrows on Fire: Finn uses one to try to scare the Banana Man away from the area and avert Jake's death.
  • Because Destiny Says So: The reason Jake decides that it's ok to die is because the Cosmic Owl prophesied it.
  • Black Comedy: The episode is rife with it.
  • Chased Off into the Sunset: The episode ends with Finn teasing Jake about how he'll have to stay right by Jake's side forever, and chasing him when he playfully runs away.
  • Death Seeker: Jake shows no fear in his death as foretold by the Cosmic Owl.
  • Depth Deception: Finn thinks that they won't have to worry about Banana Man, as he's walking towards the rising sun and will burn up when he gets too close. Jake has to point out to his buddy "You forgot how the sun works."
  • Disney Acid Sequence: The ending suddenly turns into Banana Man doing aerobics again on a background of random strobing colours.

  • Dreaming of Things to Come: Jake's dream about his death.
  • Spit Take: Jake does a foodless one for three very long seconds.
  • Together in Death: Finn figures if he can't stop Jake he'll follow after him.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: Jake certainly believes so anyway.

How well does it match the trope?
