"Scarlet", also known as The Golden Sword of Battle is Finn's original and arguably most iconic sword. The blade is noticeably worn and chipped, with several scratch marks. During the events of The Real You, Finn accidentally turned the sword into a 4-Dimensional version of itself after he accidentally created a 4-Dimensional black hole that was sucking in all of Ooo, it is implied that the blade has been lost ever since.
The Demon Blood Sword was a sword passed down by Finns adoptive father, Joshua. It is a very large and imposing broad sword made with the blood from the demon Kee-Oth. The sword was obviously very important to both Finn and Joshua, considering that Joshua hid it away in a dungeon for Finn to discover. Eventually, Finn destroyed the sword in an attempt to save The Ice King and Abracadaniel.
The Grass Sword was a sword Finn received during The Blade of Grass. Despite its rather puny appearance, the Sword has proven to be quite powerful. Being able to cut pretty much anything without much effort. The sword would later turn out to be cursed and could never be "unequipped". Finn quickly accepts this fact and becomes quite skillful with using it. During the events of Escape from the Citadel, Finn looses his arm and doesn't use the Grass Sword up until the events of The Comet, in which he uses it to defeat Orgalorg the World Breaker.
The Finn Sword was the sword Finn used after the Demon Blood Sword was shattered. It is a distinctly white and spherical sword that doesn't appear to be like anything in Ooo. The blade was actually Finn from an alternate period of time-space, who was tricked by Prismo into resurrecting him. As such, the Sword is fully sentient and houses a small pocket dimension in which "Finn 2" lives in. The Sword was scarcely used in combat, but it was depicted as being powerful in it's own right. When under the control of Bandit Princess, the Sword destroyed a portion of the Box Kingdom and Spiky Village and could even clash against the Grass Sword, however that would eventually be it's undoing.
The Sword would later become Fern the Human.
Intelligence: Finn has been an adventurer and the "Champion of Ooo" for a significant portion of his life and thus has developed a certain degree of mastery over his craft. While his actual skill in combat can be questionable at times, Finn is no doubt a worthy opponent whose tenacity and immense willpower allows him to stand up to and even threaten the likes of The Lich and Orgalorg. Finn has also been depicted as being fairly clever if the situation calls and thus can make surprising moves catch his enemies off guard.
Weaknesses: Lacks any real kind of sword or martial arts training and is generally not very great at fighting [his willpower or tenacity usually pull him through]. Particularly tense battles can put Finn in a very violent attitude, making his moment-to-moment thinking suffer. Has very little control, or even awareness over his powers or true nature.
