Recap / Adventure Time S 3 E 26 Incendium

Go To
Jake embarks on a solo mission to help a broken-hearted Finn (part 1 of a two-parter).


  • Ass Shove: BMO gooses Finn to try to shock him out of lovesickness.
  • Big "WHAT?!": Jake drops one when it is revealed that Flame Princess is evil.
  • Bowdlerise:
    • Some lyrics from the original version of "All Warmed Up Inside":
      You're like a beautiful treasure / I want to open your chest
    • After Jake sings "All Warmed Up Inside", the Flame King originally said this:
      Flame King: "A fire inside my body"?! That's pornographic.
  • Catch a Falling Star: In the final moments, Finn catches an extinguished Flame Princess who is able to relight herself.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Flame Princess reduces some courtiers to Flambits for whispering about her.
  • Gratuitous Latin: "Incendium" means "fire" or "burning" in Latin.
  • Growing Up Sucks: The episode is sparked by Finn being upset to discover that he's old enough that Princess Bubblegum finds him snuggling up to her to be creepily sexual.

  • Love at First Punch: After Flame Princess nearly destroys the Tree Fort and leaves a hand-shaped burn on his face, Finn's reaction is "I think I have a crush".
  • Playing Cyrano: Jake goes out looking to find Finn a girlfriend, and woos Flame Princess for him.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Jake mistakes Flambo for a Damsel in Distress because of his high-pitched screaming.
  • Sequel Episode: To "Too Young"
  • Wham Line:
    • "Any prince ruthless enough to kill his own buffoon would make an excellent boyfriend [...]for my evil daughter!"
    • "Dude, I think I have a crush."

How well does it match the trope?
