  • The Ice King is a fictional character in the American animated television series Adventure Time. A supposedly evil wizard capable of creating and manipulating ice and snow, he is the self-proclaimed king of the Ice Kingdom, a land of ice he claimed as his own where he lives in the company of many penguins. Although technically an antagonist, he sometimes helps the main characters and is the protagonist of several episodes focusing on his struggles or backstory. The character is voiced by Tom Kenny. Originally depicted as a two-dimensional, humorously over-the-top villain trying to kidnap Princess Bubblegum on a regular basis, the character's personality was subsequently expanded, revealing him to be a kind-hearted but misunderstood old man with completely twisted senses of morality and social behavior, suffering from loneliness and memory loss. Later seasons unveil his tragic backstory, revealing he was once a good human named Simon Petrikov who lost his mind, memories and loved ones due to the magic crown giving him his ice powers. Although the character originally received lukewarm reception and was considered an "irritating antagonist", his later backstory and development into a tragic figure were widely acclaimed, and he came to be seen as an accurate and touching depiction of social isolation and mental illness, notably Alzheimer's and bipolar disorder; the episodes "I Remember You" and "Simon & Marcy", which unveil the Ice King's relation with Marceline the Vampire Queen almost a thousand years before the beginning of the series, are often considered two of the show's very best.
