    Coma theory:
    -Finn actually tries to drown himself after being unable to cope with Jake’s death (explains why Finn is afraid of water). Finn never meets the person who saves him, only feels them saving him and figures she must be a strong person, and thus the manifestation of Susan Strong is created.
    -Marceline was a real person who Finn once played with. She died really young from an infection caused by a bat bite. At the time she died, Finn had an obsession with Vampires for their immortal prowess, and thus invented the manifestation of Marceline as a vampire so that she’d live forever in his mind.
    -Princess Bubblegum is a real person too. She was 1 year older than Finn and played with him often. Her name was Bonny and she was always seen chewing bubblegum, thus the manifestation of Princess Bubblegum appears

    Adventure time he is the film Boy and his dog (1975) That's the truth, plagiarism of idea.

    I am so tired of these theories people apply to literally anything it's not completely based in reality where they say it's like just some reality that they're thinking of as they feel like reading a book or something

    How did fine get in that universe

    The mutation conspiracy wasn’t really a conspiracy because marceliene was talking to Simon on how the “mushroom” wars affected him and everyone else physically and mentally. And I know Simon became the ice king from the crown and it’s “promises”.

    Everybody knows that the great mushroom war was a nuclear war

    I feel like I’m the last one the earth is whole because the bomb was stopped because Jake had wished the the Lynch never existed while in reality he did

    The dumb coma theories.

  17. Christian Wisskirchen
    May 21, 2019

    You can make anyone in a coma for a conspiracy theory. Oh oh spider-mans in a coma. Oh oh frodo's in a coma. It's too easy

    Or maby its all in Finns head this is my theory finn had a normal life with his pet dog Jake who was a normal dog until a giant war came kind of like the mushroom war a lot of people had been killed Finn was the only one who survived he was in a coma for 4 years and now he is all alone he does not remember a thing he only remembers his dog he got so lonely he sees every thing a nother way like if he finds a dog barking he would interpret that as Jake he has developed he's own way to see the world which made him a little bit crazy this explains every thing weird on the show and how Jake talks and a there is a candy princess

    What about that episode in season 4 episode 10 were princess bubblegum created a creature named goliad because ik for a fact the episode has a illuminati and 3rd eye opening stuff in it and black magic it's scary as hell

    I only came here for the deadpool trailer

    #2 if this theory was true Ice king would pop up a lot to try to explain to Marceline during telling the story that he is lonely and wants a woman in his life to love him but he’s to ashamed of himself

    this is trash

  23. Haydon
    May 21, 2019

    My conspiracy is who are Finns real parents and how did Jake get his powers as we seen his parents never use them well we don’t see them that much

  24. What about The Moon and the fact that you ‘run in the path of her light’?

    "Finn is in a coma but it's totally impossible that he could envision himself as a baby that eventually grows up, which would explain the prior knowledge of nuclear war and vampires and stuff. Nope, it's not possible at all."

    well maybe the adult swim style of it but other than that sorry.

    Theory 5: I agree with you ChannelFrederater Lady! This is a sad theory! And it's no where near close. Who ever made that theory should be ashamed. And subsequently donate At Least $100 to the nearest hospital as restitution to all those currently in a coma.

    Theory 4: Even more Impossible than the 5th theory! It's common knowledge that parents take on the roles of a mentor in Dungeon And Dragons games! Not Siblings! Since they're parents they would want to keep they're parental position in a fun way related to the game!


    Theory's 1& 3: Entirely Possible! We as fans know it's a nuclear war. They don't have to actually tell us. But they basically did in the farm episode you mentioned. An alterate world where humans are still the dominant species and are living in an uneasy arrangement with a gang of thugs! Classic Dystopian Watered Down Mad Max World! But without the mass nuclear damage seen in the original main timeline/universe.

    And it's entirely possible that Flapjack and Adventure Time Share the same universe. For you watched every single episode of the series, 😶 Like A Mindless Zombie 😶, as I have then you would know that noone has ever actually seen Candied Island. Peppermint Larry does received "shipments" of filled candy gallons from Candied Island but that's all! Everyone just imagines what it's like based on the rumors! Plus, Stormalong Harbor is elevated high above the sea! There are only 2 reasons to build a harbor that far out to sea! 1) Because your an extremely imaginative person/ weird person and wanted to build it out there just for the sake of Building it. 2) There is a nuclear war happening and you want to build a safe place to live in as far away from the nuclear destruction as possible!

    This also explains why Princess Bubblegum can speak German with an Impossibly great accent and why Joshua The Dog and Margaret The Dog have Brooklyn accents. Just because most of the humans in world are gone doesn't mean there work is. As seen in the episode of heat signature and the episode where Finn And Jake try to make their own movie because the old movies they dug out from wreckages had a warning label that made them fear they were breaking the law. And as evidence by the Adventure Time Island Series there are still humans left.

    So it is extremely possible they are in there same universe.

    This also would explain Candy Wife. Considering how Princess Bubblegum's Uncle Gumbald, Cousin Chicle and Aunt Lolli (I call them The Cavity Crew: Because they're a pain that's hard to get rid of without professional help) we're turned back to their normal selves and Princess Bubblegum was non the riser until it was too late and that her brother Neddy doesn't seem to recognize her even though they're both from the Mother Gum and she visited him often it is entirely possible that the Mother Gum spawned Candy Wife some years later after the stupification of The Cavity Crew.

    She probably had her own adventures and eventually met up with Peppermint Larry with whom she confirmed that Candy Island was real. This even explains why Candy Wife never talks, Why It's Called Candied Island and why Larry receives "shipment" of candy gallons. Needy wasn't born with the ability to speak English and she wasn't born with the ability to speak at all. She probably met Peppermint Butler at the Candy Kingdom, but during the whole time they've met the kingdom was never referred to by name so she called it Candied Island (since it's just a pile of candy amongst a sea of ice, slime, and lava). She and Peppermint Butler made an arrangement, he sends in gallons of candy for Peppermint Larry and she sends the money she earned on her many adventures to Peppermint Butler.

    Am I the only one who thinks the snail that appears in every episode is weird? To add on to this the snail was the one who let the Lich King loose. The snail...

    1: Basically a dream theory
    2: Basically a dream theory
    3: Crossover theory with a lot of flaws
    4: Basically a dream theory
    5: Just facts

    1/5 of these are solid theories
