Molto Larvo is a creature that attacked the Glass Kingdom a long time ago. Marceline and Princess Bubblegum fought against him, saving the Glass People from ruin. He served as the main antagonist of the Distant Lands Episode "Obsidian".
In his Dragon form, Larvo is a large Yunnan lake newt-like creature with two pairs of yellow eyes on each side of his head, and small, sharp teeth. He has small red scutes running down his body. Larvo has a very short tail, and has pairs of small protrusions on most parts of his body; a pair between his eyes and nostrils, three pairs on the sides of his body, and one pair on each leg. He also has a white rock, with three dots on it, placed on his forehead which he used to cover up the scar that he gained when he was younger.
In his younger form, Larvo was a small mutant tadpole-like creature with four eyes and a pair of small arms.
In his enhanced form, Larvo gains irregular-shaped spikes, armor and claws on his body that are made out of crystallized root beer, and are fuchsia in color. He has three large spikes on his back, four spikes and four claws on his front right leg which made the leg bigger and thicker than the other three legs, and an irregular V-shaped armor on his head.
In his true form, Larvo turns from a dragon into a winged cat-like creature. He is dark cyan green at the back and white at the front of his body. He has pale-green membranous-like wings that starts from his arms, and goes all the way down his body. Larvo now has only two black eyes with a small pink nose. He has horn like ears, and diamond-shaped scutes on his back and at the front of his shoulders; with seven on his back that reaches his shoulders, and a pair of overlapping scutes on the front of his shoulders. He also has a small short tail.
Larvo's younger self was a mutant tadpole-like sea creature who was the sole survivor out of all of his siblings when a sea predator attacked them, Larvo barely escaped the monster's sharp teeth and gained a scar on his forehead. Larvo crawled through a small crack under the sea where he finds a rock shaped like a mask to hide his scar. He laid dormant inside a cave in the Glass Kingdom for years within the lava flows.
Hundreds of years ago
Over time, Larvo started to evolve, growing larger, and eventually turning into a dragon as an adult. He became hostile towards the Glass Kingdom for unknown reasons. In order to stop him, the Glass People summoned Princess Bubblegum for help. Marceline, Bubblegum's girlfriend at the time, came as well. Bubblegum managed to contain Larvo with a force field, but the generators were knocked down by an angry Marceline. However, the Vampire Queen's song, "Woke Up", managed to drive Larvo back into the Furnace, where the Glass People kept him locked up. In order to prevent another possible escape, the Glass People sang Marceline's song annually to keep him locked up (however, they misheard the lyrics and sang it totally different). Larvo then spent centuries growing bigger and stronger, never forgetting his imprisonment at the hands of Marceline.
Hundreds of years after his original defeat, Larvo is accidentally awakened by Glassboy, a Glass Person seeking to use the Furnace to heal his cracked face. While the nobility attempted to contain him, Larvo spawned three Glass Creatures to find and kill Marceline. However, she defeated them upon returning to the Kingdom with Bubblegum and Glassboy. Marceline played "Woke Up" to drive Larvo back again, but he had become too strong for it to have an effect. While Marceline left to figure out a new song, Bubblegum found a way to stop Larvo by crystallizing him using the root beer of her Elemental powers. Larvo was released and sprayed with copious amounts of root beer, but he suddenly breaks free and it gave him crystalline spikes all over his body. Larvo begins to go on a rampage in the kingdom by breaking and melting glass buildings.
Powers and Abilities
- Larvo has the ability to stretch, grow and shrink his whole body or some parts of his body at will. It is because of this ability that Larvo can fit through the smallest spaces, despite being extremely big. This was demonstrated when, (1) his arm shrank to break out of the doors of the furnace (creating a small hole) to melt some of the shards (the Glass Kingdom guards), and (2) his whole body was able to squeeze out of the small hole on the furnace doors. He was also able to stretch his lower jaw while escaping out of the furnace.
- As a Dragon, Larvo can breathe fire that is hot enough to melt glass buildings.
- Larvo appears in the center of the "Obsidian" promotional poster, right above Marceline.
- Larvo’s transformation from tadpole-like creature into a dragon, is almost exactly like the process of metamorphosis in amphibians.
- However, his transformation from a dragon into a winged cat-like creature, is almost reminiscent of the metamorphosis of butterflies.
