Princess Bubblegum (Full Title: Princess Bonnibel Bubblegum) is a main character of the series of Adventure Time. She is the ruler of the Candy Kingdom and is a good scientist. She is Finn's former and crush. She is always kidnapped by Ice King which makes Finn always rescue her.

Early LifeEdit

She is the ruler of the Candy Kingdom. It rumored that Princess Bubblegum had survived the Great Mushroom War. Which after the war, she ate Cotton Candy Princess after she ate her she was transported into the Candy Kingdom which Peppermint Butler was the only person to survived. She made all the Candy People with also the help of Peppermint Butler, but it was only rumored but was not shown on any episode. 

It is implied that Finn has saved Princess Bubblegum many times, though she winds up saving him in the episodes "Dungeon" and "Lady & Pebbles." It also seems that she has had previous run-ins with Marceline, the vampire queen. In the past she created Lemongrab (the first one of her experiments gone wrong), then sent him away to live a sheltered life inside his own castle. Princess Bubblegum also performs other science experiments which vary from very successful to catastrophic.


In the episode, "Mortal Folly" and "Mortal Recoil," she sends Finn and Jake on a quest to stop The Lich from killing everyone in the Land of Ooo. She gives Finn the Gauntlet of the Hero Billy, as it is the only known weapon that can harm the Lich, and a sweater she made herself. The Ice King captures Princess Bubblegum and chases after Finn and Jake to get their blessing to marry her, but he accidentally drops the princess into a pit of green liquid. She is soon melted into a pile of pink-brown goo and is rushed to the hospital.

It is soon revealed that the spirit of the Lich has possessed the princess and eventually warps her into a giant monster that nearly tears apart the Candy Kingdom. Finn enlists the power of Ice King to immobilize her with a very freezing ice. Unfortunately, the frozen princess topples over and breaks to pieces. The doctors reassemble her but lack all the necessary pieces, reducing her age to 13 (the same age as Finn at the time). According to Adam Muto, her body was composed of only enough reclaimed biomass to be an adolescent, and therefore she turned into one.


During the events of "Lady & Peebles," Princess Bubblegum defeats Ricardio by beating him up with her bare hands, and she saves the Ice King's life by making him a new heart.

Princess Bubblegum patches up her rocky relationship with Lemongrab in You Made Me!" by making him a Lemongrab Clone, so he will have a friend who truly understands him. At the end of the episode, the princess bids them a fond farewell and they both invite her to visit anytime, indicating that the three of them are on good terms.

In the Season 4 finale, she is the first person to know that Billy is dead and possessed by The Lich.

AppearanceEdit

Princess Bubblegum is a 18 year old girl, which it is also the ruler of the Candy Kingdom and wears a yellow crown with a gem on it and a pink dress.

EyesEdit

Her eyes resembles as two dots like all Adventure Time Characters are.

HairEdit

Her her resembles as pink. In the episode To Cut a Woman's Hair that her hair can be chewed and it is made out of bubblegum.

ClothesEdit

She wears a crown and a pink dress. In the episode The Real You she wore a yellow t-shirt and it is seen in the episode What was Missing? it is where Marceline gave her , her old Rock T-shirt and she wears it as pajamas. It was said from PB that 'This means a lot to me' which make Marceline blush a little. It is also seen in some episodes that she wears a lab coat when doing experiments.

PersonalityEdit

She is a kind, gentle and smart girl. She always defends her kingdom when trouble happens. She has a strong sense of morality and participates in politics outside the Candy Kingdom. She is very noble and intelligent, perhaps the most intelligent being in the Candy Kingdom. She has an interest in Science.Though ordinarily sweet and good-natured, Princess Bubblegum shows a malicious aspect of her personality whenever she is crossed, as toward the Duke of Nuts for eating all of the royal pudding and supposedly ruining her appearance. Even with her kind disposition, her moral code is not as strict as Finn's. She sometimes says morbid or inappropriate things, such as when Finn picks up a paralysis poison and she says, "That's paralyzing potion, Finn! Don't touch it, or it'll paralyze you forever!" and then giggles. Many darker things are briefly shown in several episodes such as skeletons cuffed to the walls in hidden chambers as shown in "Ricardio the Heart Guy" Also, in "What Have You Done?," she displays a non-hesitant willingness to torture Ice King after he infects the Candy Kingdom with a Freezer Burn flu (in an attempt to woo the Princess) and refuses to assist her in curing them by screaming voluntarily. However, in this case, she does understand what she was attempting to do was wrong, and cries in stress and guilt when Finn exposes this.

When she is 13 years old in "Too Young," she exhibits a playful attitude and a willingness to perform pranks with Finn. Just before Princess Bubblegum is returned to her normal age she mentions that she enjoyed temporarily being 13 because she was free from the responsibilities that came with being ruler of the Candy Kingdom and that she could act like a kid again. In Princess Bubblegum's own words, being thirteen was "bloobalooby."

Princess Bubblegum acts noticeably more childlike when she is not in her role as the princess. She dresses and talks more casually when she isn't busy with her work, as seen in "Video Makers" and "What was Missing." As a princess, she is prim, poised, and straight-laced, but is quite capable of loosening up and dressing/acting like a regular teenager with her friends.

After the events in "Mortal Recoil," Princess Bubblegum is afraid of her own mortality. She worries what would become of the Candy Kingdom should she die, as pointed out in the episode "Goliad". She considers the possibility of living forever is not scientifically possible yet so she creates an heir in the form of Goliad.

AbilitiesEdit

Aside from her scientific prowess, she has many abilities and talents. She has spoken German in "What Have You Done?," "Go With Me," and "Slumber Party Panic ," and is capable of understanding Lady Rainicorn, who speaks Korean, suggesting she knows the language. In "What Was Missing" she failed to successfully play BMO as a high-tech instrument, and in "Dream of Love," she combined her scientific abilities with her musical talents at herconcert. There is a possibility she may be a good whistler as she was shown practicing for a Whistling Choir Death Match Championship, even though in the scene where you saw and heard her practicing her whistling was no more than unimpressive and off-tune. She is also an ambidextrous writer as she wrote with her left hand in "Slumber Party Panic" and "Goliad" and her right hand in "Five Short Graybles" and "Burning Low."

Princess Bubblegum's scientific aptitude is shown in "Slumber Party Panic" where she concocts a potion to reanimate dead Candy People and "Five Short Graybles" when she creates the "most perfect sandwich" that has ever existed. She also created Lemongrab, Goliad, and Stormo in her lab.

In "Lady & Peebles," she shows her capabilities in fighting when she fought in hand-to-hand combat with Ricardio. She also demonstrated her strength when she carried an injured Lady Rainicorn, as well as healing and rescuing Finn, Jake, and the Ice King when she brought them to the Candy Kingdom.

Her crown and matching earrings are capable of blocking the wearer's mind from the Lich's influence, as she reveals in "Mortal Folly." The gem of power is also used for the Enciridion (book) in "The Lich."

Curiously, Princess Bubblegum seems to age differently than other candy people seen in the show. In "Princess Cookie" she is seen in a flashback visiting an orphanage for candy children. She appears to be the same age as she is now, while Baby Snaps (one of the orphans) had physically aged since then. The reason for this is currently unknown.  

RelationshipsEdit

ScienceEdit

It was made by Princess Bubblegum to fix the antidote, she is also the smartest rat among the Candy Kingdom.

FinnEdit

Princess Bubblegum was the former crush of Finn, although it wasn't clear whether or not the feeling was mutual. She often rolled her eyes at his advances, but at other times seemed genuinely flattered. Princess Bubblegum cites the hero as a great friend and will never hesitate to call on him for aid in royal matters. She has referred to him as, "my hero" on several occasions. Finn and Princess Bubblegum share the same moralistic nature and often work together to right any wrongs in the Land of Ooo.

In "Slumber Party Panic" she called Finn "adorable." The princess sees Finn as her "flawless champion," as said in "The Duke." It is also shown that there is a picture of Finn on her wall. Still in the same episode Princess Bubblegum reveals she could never hold a grudge against Finn. In "To Cut a Woman's Hair" she says explicitly that she likes Finn, although she could have meant as a friend or in a motherly way. In "The Real You," she gives Finn a kiss on the cheek for saving the Candy Kingdom from the black hole he created and making her Science Barbeque a huge success. In "Go With Me," she exiles Finn from the Candy Kingdom after he releases a pack of wolves into her room, but her feelings are only temporary as Princess Bubblegum appears to have forgiven Finn by her next appearance.

In "Mortal Folly," she said to Finn, "I care about you," and gives him a pink sweater with a white heart stitch to the left that she made with the power of "liking someone a lot" which ended up helping Finn defeat the Lich. At the end of "Mortal Recoil," Princess Bubblegum ages down to 13.

In "Too Young," Princess Bubblegum acts very loving and affectionate toward Finn during the time she is 13, even going on a "date" with him, leaning on his shoulder, and holding his hand. Finn's former feelings for her might have been reciprocated while she was 13, and this may have been Bubblegum's true feelings for him, which might only apply when they are the same age. She expresses some regret when she has to turn back to 18 because she never gets to "act like a kid." She also says to Finn that she would rather "stay like this, with you." During the transformation of her being back to 18, they share a hug and she kisses Finn on the lips. When she changes back to 18, she returns to her normal personality, but without the same kind of affection for Finn. When Finn asks whether they could "hug some more," she replies by saying, "That was like 5 years ago. You really gotta move on." She makes this remark with a smile and mutters "Such a silly boy " as she walks back into the castle.

In "Wizard Battle," she forgives Finn for cheating in the contest, then they share a quick kiss on the lips and she slaps him on the cheek for cheating.

Finn has a few nicknames for her, such as PB, Princess, Bubblegum, Probbles, Preebos, P-bubs, Prubs, and Peebles.

In "What Was Missing," it was revealed that Finn keeps a clump of Princess Bubblegum's hair that he got in "To Cut A Woman's Hair" as a prized possession. It was also seen in Incendium" while Finn was singing All Gummed Up Inside, and again when he saves Flame Princess from falling.

In "Incendium," Jake says that Princess Bubblegum is too old for him. This might also be the reason she keeps pushing him away, because when she turned thirteen she showed how much she really liked Finn.

In "In Your Footsteps," Jake refers to Princess Bubblegum as Finn's "ex-girlfriend" and Finn responds by saying "She's not my... We never went steady."

In "Burning Low," Princess Bubblegum becomes pleasantly interested when the news comes up that Finn is hanging out with another girl, but then she acts distraught when she finds out Finn has been hanging with Flame Princess. She attempts to explain to Finn and Jake why he shouldn't date her through complicated scientific facts, though Finn leaves to meet Flame Princess and Jake falls asleep. Jake comes to the conclusion that Princess Bubblegum is jealous of Flame Princess and shares this with Finn. She confronts Finn the next day and attempts to console him, believing that he knew about the situation. However, when she starts talking about responsibility demanding sacrifice, Finn misinterprets this as her displaying jealousy for his relationship and shouts to her about his past feelings towards her. We later find out that she was the one who had Flame Princess locked up so she does not fall in love and destroy the earth from the inside, though Finn may remain unaware of this.

One of her metaphors indicates that when one loves someone enough to kiss them, one has to make sacrifices for the greater good. She applies this to Finn kissing Flame Princess, which could in the destruction of the earth, although Finn takes it the wrong way. 

In "Lady & Peebles" she struggles to find Finn and Jake, finds out that they were both captured by Ricardio, saves them and treats them back in the Candy Kingdom.

In "You Made Me!" Lemongrab attempts to hit Princess Bubblegum with a blast from his Sound Sword, but Finn dives in front of her and takes the hit instead.

In "Reign of Gunters," although Finn says he is over Princess Bubblegum, he takes the advice of a dating book called Mind Games and tries to act more mysterious, claiming he needs to keep all the ladies in a state of confusion; that way, he has "options in case Flame Princess doesn't work out," and in "Kingworm" he dreams of Princess Bubblegum being his wife.

In "The Lich," Princess Bubblegum becomes angered when Finn tries to snatch her royal gem from her crown and starts struggling to push him away, causing her to accidentally cut him on the cheek with scissors. Finn staggers backwards and hisses in pain, glaring angrily at the Princess before taking the gem from the fallen crown and leaving through the roof with Jake despite Princess Bubblegum's calls.
