    Undead immortal evil villain with a disdain for the living. The Lich King seems to of had originated from the mushroom bomb the created the Land of Ooo. When Finn wished the Lich to never exist the land of Ooo was replaced by the Farm World. In the Farm World time line Simon Petrikov stopped the Mushroom Bomb from hitting so the mutated creatures of Ooo never existed. When Farm World Finn in possession of the Ice King's Crown made the bomb go off the explosion made a pool similar to the Lich Kings Well of Power. When Farm World Jake came in contact with the Well of Power he mutated into a Lich like creature.

    In the canon timeline Lich was defeated by the hero Billy as explained in Billy's song. He has fought Finn and Jake on more than one occasion, and once even possessed Princess Bubblegum.
