The Dark Princess (formerly Kim Jefferson) is the second main antagonist of Adventure Time. Her main goal is to eliminate Marceline for the acts that her father has done. As her name suggests, Dark Princess is also her title, announcing herself as Princess of All Evil (suggesting that Hunson Abadeer is not actually the original Lord of Evil). She rules the unknown. Some time during the Mushroom War, she lost her dad because of Hunson Abadeer, suggesting her hate for Marceline.


Dark Princess is a tall, gray, teenage girl with black hair. She wears a long black gala dress with purple and two long black arm gloves. Dark Princess has a light-gray skin possibly duo her lack of seeing light. Dark Princess's body is in fact exceptionally thin. Despite this, Dark Princess is on a diet. Dark Princess is rarely seen without her tiara.


Sometime before the Mushroom War, Dark Princess was a normal, peach-skinned, dark-haired human named Kim Jefferson who lived with her parents as a little girl. Before the Mushroom War she found a magical tiara that she began wearing. During the Mushroom War, she lost her father and her mother was taken away from her. After the Mushroom War she mastered the power of the tiara and seeked revenge for her family. Over time, her skin turned gray because of over use. For a period, Kim befriended some wolves. These wolves would be her Dark Wolves, which she has on her side. As many years passed, Jefferson became disassociated from her original identity. She is no longer human; but unlike Ice King's crown she remained her memories, but she admitted that she rather would forget those terrible memories because they always were haunting her mind. Her species/race is now Dark Elemental.


Dark Princess is normally portrayed as disagreeable, and short-tempered and is a huge threat according to Marceline. A genuinely tragic, lonely, and sympathetic character, Dark Princess spends most of her time scheming revenge on Ooo, in hopes of someday ruling over Ooo. Dark Princess only thinks about herself and when she is being nice to others it is only to use them, she thinks love is weakness this being the reason for her loneliness. She will try to silence anyone in her way, especially her archenemie Marceline. Dark Princess is pure evil. Despite doing mostly bad things, it can be said that she hates anyone who's good.

Relationships Edit

Dark OverlordEdit

Dark Princess idolizes her father and strives to be like him. In fact, it was actually her father who gave her the silver tiara that changed her into the Dark Princess. DP always had looked up to her father, so after Hunson killed him, Dark Princess goes out to seek her revenge.

The Dark WolvesEdit

The Dark Wolves of Dark Princess are the only ones she wants to be in company with. She thinks that they are the only ones who understand her, and treats them like they are her best companions. Although she loves her wolves very much, she is very strict to them, mostly when the wolves are making her palace dirty. She has one wolf that is often at her side, he is slightly taller than the rest, and is command of the others.

Ice KingEdit

Ice King is the only other person that Dark Princess conciders a "friend" although she always reffers them as "colleagues". Ice King is the only person who knows about Dark Princess's past, but of course doesn't have the memories to associate her with him, although deep down he knows. The only thing that Dark Princess dislikes about Ice King is his relationship with Marceline. Ice King doesn't want Marceline to get hurt, especially not by one of his friends. Secretly Dark Princess likes Ice King, if only he would be somewhat more serious.


Marceline and Dark Princess are the biggests rivals in the series yet. Because Hunson Abadeer killed her father, something Marceline wasn't even aware of, Dark Princess wants to take revenge on Hunson by taking something that is dear to him. When Marceline discusses Dark Overlord with her father, she remembers that he is the one that killed her mother. Because her father did nothing wrong, she keeps in rivalry with Dark Princess.


Dark Princess has had several encounters with Finn, although not many. The times she had encountered him were to use him so she could get revenge on Marceline. Because of Dark Princess's seductive stagities she often manages to manipulate Finn into obeying her. However the last time she tried that it didn't work and Finn defeated her instead.

Princess BubblegumEdit

Princess Bubblegum and Dark Princess have a hatred to each other, mainly because Dark Princess wants to kill Marceline. Dark Princess thus often targets Bonnibel to lure Marceline to her. One time she even tied Bonnibel up making it looks like she was going to do dirty things to her, only to make Marceline more angrier. 

Hunson AbadeerEdit

Dark Princess knows that Hunson took her father away by killing him. She has since been trying to seek revenge on Hunson Abadeer, which brings her joy. But she is aware that Hunson Abadeer is out of her league and thus targets his daughter Marceline to get revenge on him, which she realized herself, is a worser revenge than killing Hunson.

New Super Adventure Bros. WiiEdit

Dark Princess is a boss of World 1. Before battling her, she is shocked at Finnn's presence, rages about it and gets ready to fight. In the first battle, Finn will fire black fireballs at Finn and jump. After being hit, she will fire black matter balls around the area, causing Finn damage if he comes in contact with any of them. After three stomps on the head, Dark Princess will be defeated, retreating to her castle in World 1 with Dark Prince.

Dark Princess' second battle (in her castle with Dark Prince) is in a room filled with platforms that shift up and down. Dark Princess has the same tactics as her last fight. However, two attacks from two different people is more difficult to avoid because of the moving room. After three more stomps both are defeated. After this fight he will fall off screen, leaving the key to the Fire Kingdom, where Flame Princess will be put under a spell and Flame King is. In the ending, she is shown limping when he comes across Lord Grim and the other villains, who are all getting up from being defeated and all begin to go back to their homes, Dark Princess groans, knowing she would have to go back to world 1.
