How old is Finn in Adventure Time? Because it never says, yet he always looks the same from time to time when surely they can't have trouble every day.

    Clicked on title without reading tag. Assumed this was a question about Star Wars. Didn't read actual question, and skipped straight to reading the answer. Became very confused.

1 Answer 1


17 years old, at time of posting this answer

In the Season 6 finale "The Comet", Finn states that he is 16:

FINN: Besides, it was like 40 years ago. I'm 16! I don't have a star to revolve around to track time.

Since time in Adventure Time elapses at the same rate as in the real world, and since we are currently near the end of Season 7, this would make Finn 17 years old.

  • Are we certain that time elapses at the same rate? That certainly isn't the case for all TV shows. Not that I'm disputing anything, just curious. Commented Jan 15, 2016 at 18:48

    @DangerZone : Part of the premise of Adventure Time is that time elapses at a "normal" rate. It's closer to a documentary than to a usual cartoon.

    @DangerZone : Also, a few seasons earlier, in the episode "Mystery Train", Finn states that he is 13, which enforces the passage of time.
