After fusing with Betty, GOLB's appearance is altered, appearing as giant and red with a cubic/pyramid head somewhat similar in appearance to Grob Gob Glob Grod's but the shape appears to be that of Betty and her clothing, and their eyes are blue and green instead of yellow. 
After GOLB "took" Margles, Magic Man traveled to [[Prismo]]'s [[Time Room]] and wished that she would return but Prismo was unable to successfully bring her back. This shows that GOLB has powers greater than those of a Wish Master. It is possible Margles is still imprisoned in GOLB's dimension, but because his powers are greater than any other being, rescuing her would be impossible.

In "[[Come Along With Me]]," GOLB is shown digesting things he eats by returning them to their original form. This is why Betty was able to make a wish with the Crown.

Latest revision as of 12:02, June 29, 2020

GOLB is a malevolent entity related to chaos who inhabits an unknown dimension and serves as the final antagonist of Adventure Time.

He is first seen briefly at the end of "Puhoy." After old Finn dies in the Pillow World and is being warped back to his own reality, he bounces off GOLB's tongue.

He is mentioned later in "You Forgot Your Floaties." While inside Magic Man's mind, Betty witnesses a memory of him and Grob Gob Glob Grod discussing GOLB at an unknown date in the past. It is revealed that GOLB attacked Mars at some point and "took" Magic Man's wife, Margles. Grob Gob Glob Grod believes that GOLB will return and Magic Man agrees, using the threat of GOLB as a pretext for building a security system on Mars that takes the shape of Margles. Later, Magic Man changes his mind, claiming that Grob Gob Glob Grod is wrong and GOLB is "probably not coming back."

The Lich calls himself the "last scholar of GOLB" in "Whispers."

In "Temple of Mars," Betty speaks to Magic Man (now known as King Man) about her plan to both save Simon from the ice crown and to get back Margles from GOLB.

In "Come Along With Me," Betty, Maja, and Normal Man summon GOLB to Ooo, and he wreaks havoc by combining the candy people's mass to create hostile wraiths. Upon seeing him, Ice King has a flashback to an indeterminate date in the past when he researched GOLB as Simon. In the flashback, Simon describes GOLB as a "mysterious entity who embodies chaos," and states that "his presence is felt in every crevice where chaos lurks." When GOLB arrives, he swallows Finn, Betty, and Simon. Simon and Finn manage to escape before he digests them, but Betty stays behind to try to use the Ice Crown to wish GOLB away from their world. Her first wish to destroy GOLB fails because GOLB's power supersedes that of the Crown, but her subsequent wish for "the power to keep Simon safe" succeeds and allows her to merge with GOLB into a single entity. The newly-created Betty-GOLB exits Ooo, leaving the Ice Crown behind.

AppearanceEdit

GOLB has a massive muscular red body and a cubic head topped with a pyramid with the bottom half fraying upward. He has four round yellow eyes with green pupils, with the two eyes on top slightly larger than the two below. Up close GOLB has cracks around his eyes and mouth. He has a forked tongue that is large and purple. His hands have three fingers and his feet have two toes and one dewclaw. He has orange-yellow talons on his fingers and toes.

After fusing with Betty, GOLB's appearance is altered, appearing as giant and red with a cubic/pyramid head somewhat similar in appearance to Grob Gob Glob Grod's but the shape appears to be that of Betty and her clothing, and their eyes are blue and green instead of yellow. 

AbilitiesEdit

After GOLB "took" Margles, Magic Man traveled to Prismo's Time Room and wished that she would return, but Prismo was unable to successfully bring her back. GOLB's powers make him one of the most powerful entities in the multiverse, even the magic power of Evergreen's Crown couldn't defeat him. GOLB most likely traps his victims inside of his mouth as mentioned in "Temple of Mars" and attempted in "Puhoy" although Finn managed to bounce off of GOLB's tongue. In "Come Along With Me," GOLB is shown digesting things he eats by returning them to their original form. This is why Betty was able to make a wish with the Crown. GOLB was also shown to release a dangerous gas from his mouth which causes beings to become wraiths infused with discord.

WeaknessesEdit

As GOLB is the embodiment of discord, his ultimate weakness is harmony. In "Come Along With Me," GOLB is weakened by the characters singing "Time Adventure"; this suspends GOLB's creations and tears a hole through GOLB, which allows Finn and Simon to escape digestion.
