Earl Of Lemongrab
You would be a miserable, evil bastard, too, if you woke up like this everyday.
I love me some Lemongrab, and I make that clear on as many occasions as I can. Why? Because Lemongrab is a victim of circumstance. Princess Bubblegum CREATED Lemongrab, and considers him a failed experiment, so she gave him his own (empty) kingdom to rule over. Thing is, he is sort of crazy and high-strung, and likes to watch citizens of the candy kingdom while they sleep (again, to reiterate, you think this is a kid’s show?) and though he tends to be a great aggravation to Finn and Jake, he is a failed test-tube baby who was ultimately abandoned by his creator (his God) and in turn, he is bitter and angry, but doesn’t he have the right to be? Also, I find his yelling of unacceptable to be awesome, and I do this now in restaurants when waiters mess up my order.
Note that I have attempted to attach three videos to this article so far, and none of them are linking, so a still picture and you yelling UNACCEPTABLE at the top of your lungs right now will have to do.
Alright, so maybe he has not shown his full colors yet, but he will, mark my words.
Though we have not seen the full depths of Peppermint Butler’s depravity, nor do we know his full intent, yet, but we know he has close ties with death, for some reason. And he has told Finn and Jake that he would “steal the skin from their sleeping bodies” for payment for saving them. They laughed nervously about it as if it as a joke, yet he didn’t.
Also, in a later episode, Finn and Jake find Peppermint Butler standing over the body of a dead goblin, and he claims that is how he found him, but all signs point to Peppermint Butler having murdered said Goblin. Also, there is a background shot that was really subtle in the second Nightosphere episode, where we can see a photo of Peppermint Butler playing golf with Hunson Abadeer, who you also know as Marceline’s Dad, and the ruler of the Nightosphere AKA Hell. There is no doubt Peps is a bad guy, we just haven’t seen his true colors yet, but we will.
When he gets really mad, his mouth opens like a vagina. Seriously.
He ate his teenage daughter’s fries when she wasn’t around. Does it get any crueler? I think not.
In this scene, a hopeless Finn and Jake pull themselves in front of an oncoming train to end their life of constant battles and insanity.
Magic Man is a lot like Earl of Lemongrab in the sense that he is SUCH an asshole, but for some unknown reason, I think he is awesome. Ofcourse, a little backstory explains everything. Magic Man was an awesome, sweet, funny guy, but then his lady love, Margles, died on Olympus Mons. I don’t know what Olympus Mons is, but I know Abe Lincoln said that about him when Finn went to Mars looking for answers. Yes, I just typed that. And it was confirmed when he held up a picture of her and was visibly sad in that episode. So, her death sent him on a downward spiral of acting like an asshole to every single person he met for 200 years.
Wow, that is like a Shakespearean tragedy. In many ways, he is the Anti-Keanu.
So people may be wondering why Ice King isn’t on this list. That’s simple. He is not a bad guy. He is just a misunderstood pervert, like the best of us.
Benson, from Regular Show, is the only other animated drummer with this much chutzpah!
