"Wizard City" is the third episode of Adventure Time: Distant Lands, though it was the last one to air (after "Together Again").


Peppermint Butler starts over at the beginning, as just another inexperienced Wizard School student. When mysterious events at the campus cast suspicion on him and his checkered past, can he master the mystic arts in time to prove his innocence? [2]

Major characters

Minor Characters



  • Brain Wiz and Bufo (as the toad host) both die in this episode.
  • It is revealed that before Peppermint Butler was regressed to a child-like state, he cursed himself to be embodied by his own dark self.
  • Peppermint Butler got banned from Wizard City due to being a Dark Wizard.
  • Bufo (as the tadpole group) remains the only survivor out of the Secret Order of Wizards to presumably survive.
  • Bufo threw Forest Wizard and Laser Wizard under the bus.
  • Abracadaniel has a niece named Cadebra.
  • Ron James, the Ancient Sleeping Magi of Life Giving, Leaf Man, and Little Dude all work at the school as teachers.
  • This is the first episode to feature a post-credits scene.
  • This is the only Distant Lands episode in which Finn does not appear.
    • However, he is referenced a lot of times. For example, in the astral plane training scene or the little hat dude that's alive. But the most related one is the relationship between the spirit of the adult Peppermint Butler and kid Peppermint, which is the same as Finn and the Fear Feaster as both ghosts appears when they feel sacred or stressed out (ironically, both shared the same fate, with Finn and Peppermint murdering their inner ghost at the end of the episode).
  • This is the second Distant Lands episode where an image of Jake is seen, even though Jake is not physically present.
    • The first such episode was "Obsidian", wherein a tattoo depicting Jake was seen on Finn's chest.
  • Graffiti in the school's courtyard closely resembles the Kilroy was here meme.
  • Before being crushed, Dr. Caledonius yells "More weight!" This is a reference to the real-world death of Giles Corey.
  • After finding Peppermint Butler hiding in the dumpster, Blaine shouts "Stop right there, criminal scum!" This is a reference to the video game The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, in which city guards speak the same line.

Episode Connections

  • This episode presumably takes place concurrently to the events of "Obsidian", as indicated in the opening sequence by the rain as well as Choose Goose's cloak and cart of illegal moisturizer.
  • The Gum War from "Come Along With Me" is mentioned as a rumor that Peppermint Butler had been the cause. While metaphorically true (Peppermint Butler falling victim to Gumbald's Dum Dum Juice was the final straw that spurred Princess Bubblegum to declare war), the rumor seems to paint Peppermint Butler as an active instigator rather than a victim of an attempted 'assassination'.
  • One of Peppermint Butler's photos shows him with a possessed Cinnamon Bun from "The Suitor."
  • Choose Goose turns evil after drinking the blood of Coconteppi, suggesting this is why he ended up in the 1st Deadworld in "Together Again."
    • However, given the fact he was still good in "Together Again" indicates he must have turned back to his normal self at some point in time.
  • Coconteppi is one of the many monsters that came before time, which is shown in "Gold Stars."
  • One of Peppermint Butler's photos depict him hanging out with Death and Jake, similar to when the three of them were at Prismo's party in "Wake Up."

Storyline Analysis

  • In "Together Again" (which takes place far in the future relative to "Wizard City") Peppermint Butler is shown to have grown back to his fully adult form, still maintaining an interest in dark magic. This likely fulfills the young Peppermint's desire to become "a powerful wizard jerk," and while he states in "Wizard City" that he wishes to distance himself from his past wrongdoings, it remains unclear how well this promise was kept up.
