Whilst watching one of the Adventure time, season three episodes, I recognised that Finn had a pretty cool sword I thought I'd never seen before. I thought to myself:

My what a cool sword! The show creators must just add random swords to the show!

It looked like this

But is that true? Does Finn just get a new sword every episode or something?


No, he received that sword in 'Mystery Train', and fans have dubbed it the 'Root Sword'.

There is in fact a lot of consistency in the swords Finn wields, far more than you might expect form a normal 'kid's' show. The Adventure time wikia has an entire page on Finn's Swords.

Here is a picture of the ones he regularly uses:

Finn's Standard set of swords

From Left to right:

  1. Finn's Original Golden Sword
  2. A 4D version of the golden sword
  3. The 'Root sword'
  4. The Demon Sword

    It seems to be a bit more consistent now since they received the sword from their dad in "Dad's Dungeon". – Terrance Shaw Sep 8 '12 at 23:25
  • @TerranceShaw I've not seen that one yet... – AncientSwordRage Sep 8 '12 at 23:27
  • It's actually the demon sword you linked. – Terrance Shaw Sep 8 '12 at 23:33
  • Also notice that each previous sword is destroyed before being replaced. The Gold Sword was destroyed upon being turned into the 4D Sword and then collapsed, the Root Sword I believe was shattered at some point, the Demon Blood sword was taken back by the demon that their Dad slayed, and most recently, the Grass Blade was destroyed(?). – Zibbobz May 29 '14 at 14:43
