Billy the Hero Vs. the Lich King

Turns out Arthas isn’t the only “Lich King” in town (spoiler alert: I’m not talking about Bolvar, either). No, it turns out that the twisted, post-apocalyptic Land of Ooo has its own evil sack of bones to contend with. Except that he’s no match for the most mathematical hero in the universe, Billy! Seriously, who needs the help of Tirion Fordring or the Ashbringer, when Billy can just kick him in the face? He has a better theme song, too!

I admit, this is a bit of a stealth PSA to get more people watching Adventure Time (which is probably the best cartoon to hit the air since… forever), but I got a chuckle out of it and I hope you do, too. The show is certainly no stranger to lampooning role-playing and fantasy tropes.


  1. Well I have fought a bear and killed the Lich King, but I haven’t had a chance to fight evil oceans yet or be offered princess’ hair. I’m sure my time will come!

  2. This is by far the most excellent show on T.V. imo. Regular Show (if you haven’t seen it yet) is just as good as well!

  3. You do realize that “Lich” is a common term, and has been used in fantasy pen & paper/d20 games for ages.

    Hell, any Lich that decides to crown himself a king, is then known as a Lich King.
