|Jake the Dog|
Character Info Edit
Jake the Dog is a main character in the American animated television series Adventure Time created by Pendleton Ward. He is voiced by John DiMaggio. The character made his debut in the original pilot. Jake is Finn's best friend and adoptive brother. He is a 28-year-old—in "magical dog years"—shape-shifting dog. His magic powers allow him to stretch or shrink any part of his body to any shape and almost any size, ranging from becoming gigantic to becoming incredibly small. Acting as a confidant and mentor to his energetic brother (though he has a tendency to give somewhat questionable advice), Jake has a laid-back attitude in most situations, but loves adventure and will eagerly fight when he needs to.
He can morph into all sorts of fantastic shapes thanks to his Stretchy Powers. But regularly, he is an average sized yellow-orange dog with jowls. He also wears transparent pants made of spider webs spun by pixies, which he said in the episode "Donny." In "What was Missing," he borrows the pair of pants that Marceline wore in "It Came from the Nightosphere." When he was a puppy, he was small enough for his father, Joshua, to loom over him.
Jake is generally laid-back and tends not to worry about things. He relies heavily on his powers (or Finn) to get him out of any dangerous predicament. While he often cracks jokes at serious times, Jake always has a lecture or a song to cheer Finn up if he is feeling disheartened. Acting as Finn's world-wise mentor, Jake is always willing to give input and advice about a situation, but his suggestions are usually inconsistent, ranging from encouraging and helpful suggestions to ridiculous nonsense. He can be somewhat irresponsible at times, frequently leaving Finn to fight most of a battle on his own, but he always pulls through when he is needed most.
