The Ice King, formerly known as Simon Petrikov was a main recurring antagonist in Adventure Time, though now is "semi-reformed". Before The Great Mushroom War, Simon was a respectable archaeologist, appearing to be mild-mannered, intelligent, kind and adventurous. On a trip to Scandinavia, Simon discovered a Crown of mysterious origin. After wearing his crown, his life changed for the worse. His relationship with his girlfriend was shattered and his sanity was starting to diminish. However, the crown would keep him alive, allowing him to be one of the very few human survivors of The Great Mushroom War.
During the war, Simon would find and look after a young Marceline, becoming a father figure to her. After some time looking after her, Simon was fearing that the crown would corrupt his personality and make him completely unfit to raise Marcy, so he somehow arranged for her to meet with her actual father, Hunson Abadeer.
After nearly 1,000 years, Simon, now taking up the mantle as "The Ice King" became the ruler of the Ice Kingdom and eventually become the foil to Finn and Jake. Characterized by his extremely childish and selfish personality, The Ice King made a name for himself throughout Ooo as a deranged man who kidnaps princesses. Despite his status as a bit of a joke, the Ice King is surprisingly one of the stronger characters in the series, his magic, if used seriously, can cause large scale storms, destroy mountains and even freeze the entire world. This is partly due to his crown, which was created by the late Urgence Evergreen, an ancient Ice Elemental.

Possibly much higher (The Enchiridion implies that Wizards can destroy and create anything they please on a cosmic scale [If reality is Mental in nature, analogous to a Cosmic Mind, and if Wizardry is a function of the Imagination, then the Forces of Nature in the Multiverse are akin to the Currents of the Cosmic Imagination.

Weaknesses: Ice King is truly mentally unstable, he never takes anything seriously, and is weak to fire and heat in general. Additionally, he is rather powerless without his crown.
- Wizard Eyes: This ability allows Ice King to see different planes of existence, albeit with no control over what he is able to view at any given time. As a result, Ice King often sees strange things that most others can't, such as odd-looking creatures and phantoms native to a dimension known as the Spirit World.
