  • BFS/Cool Sword: Ice King can make a huge sword of ice.
  • Breather Episode: This episode is a lot more mellow than the typical Adventure Time escapade. Even more unusual in that it's centered around the Ice King of all people.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Ice King turns out to a very tricky opponent when faced a divine being such as the Party God. He even throws the latter into outer space.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Another Ice King episode, but portrays him more sympathetic and badass than usual.
  • Deserted Island: The Island Lady is one.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Ice King manages to defeat Party God with a cunning trick of freezing a cloud to knock him out. This is very impressive, considering how Ice King is most of the time.
  • Domestic Abuse: Party God of all people turns out to be this, being a very abusive boyfriend to Island Lady.

  • Duct Tape for Everything: Ice King tries to gag Princess Bubblegum with duct tape.

  • Pet the Dog: Ice King genuinely helping out a girl without wanting to force her to marry him, which is very nice considering how he usually is. Quite possibly justified in that he's not wearing the crown, leaving him in a more lucid state of mind.
  • Self-Duplication: Party God can split himself into miniature copies of himself.
  • Smug Super: Party God is just as powerful as he is an egocentric jerk.
  • A Twinkle in the Sky: The Party God leaves a twinkle after the Ice King flings him into outer space.
  • Wakeup Makeup: Averted, as PB has obviously messy hair when Ice King wakes her up.
