Not much is known about Jake's birth. But he is the son Joshua and Margret, brother of Jermaine, and adoptive brother of Finn the Human.
When Jake was probably a little baby when he met his new adoptive brother, Finn. His parents told Jake to love Finn as a brother forever. He really did love Finn when he was young (and still now). Since they were little, their dad (Joshua) taught them to fight evil, and their mother (Margret) taught them,"To always be nice to others!" Margret would always say.
Note!:This is from the original Adventure Time series, and wiki!
Finn and Jake are best friends and adoptive brothers. They will go out of their way to protect each other. Jake watches over Finn using his stretchy powers to protect him, whether it is shielding him from rain or cold weather, or catching him in mid-fall. Jake was fully aware of Finn's crush on Princess Bubblegum. He was also very supportive when he was heartsick from her, and fully understands how much Princess Bubblegum had hurt him. Having been raised together by Jake's parents, Joshua and Margaret, the two share a brotherly companionship. Jake often acts as a force of guidance in Finn's life, giving out whatever advice he sees best. Though they have seemingly contrasting personalities, Finn's manic hyperactivity and Jake's genuinely lazy demeanor, the pair make an excellent team and are immensely important figures in each other's lives. It is known that Jake is not Finn's dog, but rather his friend and brother- as seen in "Jake vs. Me-Mow" when they refer to Jake's Mom as simply Mom. Finn treasures her music box that she used for lullabies and carries it with him in his backpack; he sees himself as their son and fellow 'puppy'. Jake can sense when he is about to cry or feeling about to cry, he said that it is like a mother-daughter relationship. He plays a lot of roles - sometimes acting like a pet dog - for example, growling at Susan Strong for almost drowning Finn, sometimes like a parental figure, giving him advice or cheering up, like in "Return to the Nightosphere." Also in "Burning Low," Jake gave Finn advice about his love life which shows Jake is doing his best to make sure Finn's relationship with Flame Princess doesn't turn out like his relationship with Princess Bubblegum. However in the episode "Who Would Win" after Finn destroys Jake's video game, Kompy's Kastle, Jake in anger tells Finn that he's going to break every bone in his body and then heal his with the magic tears that Finn got from the Cyclops. After Finn refuses to apologize, Jake and Finn engage in a physical fight. But when they fall asleep after knocking each other out, they both see the Dream Warrior who gives them hints to beat Farm, such as "My Cars are Cheap" and "two shiny golden apples, ripe enough to bite." After Finn uses Jake as a catapult to shoot mud in his eyes, putting down his pants, and bitting his buns, they both receive medals in victory and once again are friends.
Lady Rainicorn is Jake's girlfriend. According to her official bio, the two get along so well because of their shared interest in the viola.
Jake is fluent in Korean, which he uses to communicate with Lady. A loyal boyfriend, Jake often stops adventuring to make time for her, meeting her every day at 4:00 PM on the dot.
In "Go With Me," they are seen kissing at Couples Only Movie Night. In the episode "My Two Favorite People," Lady recalls a time when she and Jake ran naked through a farmer's field, causing them both to blush. This may indicate some level of intimacy in their relationship, though they are technically almost always naked, aside from Jake's invisible pants. Jake feels threatened by and becomes jealous when other males are friendly with Lady. For instance, Jake storms off when he misinterprets Finn and Lady's budding friendship in "My Two Favorite People." Another example comes in "Video Makers," when Mr. Cupcake flexes his muscles at Lady Rainicorn instead of acting out a wedding for Jake's romantic comedy movie. Jake says that he told him to say the lines instead of flexing out, who instead responds "I don't hear her complaining," which provokes Jake into attacking him. In "Paper Pete," Jake said he would one day want to have children with Lady Rainicorn, and at the end of "Lady & Peebles," she tells Jake in English: "I am pregnant!"
Jake is shown in "Up a Tree " to be very devoted to Lady during her pregnancy; he carries the basket while they go out for a picnic, helps roll her up so she can get on the blanket, and later leaves Finn on his adventure so he can walk Lady home. Later, he is shown washing dishes at Lady's house while Finn and the Squirrel fly by. In "All the Little People ," he spends 16 weeks at Lady's after being annoyed by Finn's obsession with the little beings.
Jake and Tree Trunks share a close relationship, which is similar to a grandmother-grandson relationship. This is shown most of the time, though there was a situation in the episode "Tree Trunks" when she kissed him several times so that he would let her help Finn. Jake appeared later with lipstick marks all over his face, and he was smiling. Later, Tree Trunks tells Finn that she'll accept his apology (Finn had earlier yelled at her) if he would let her kiss his cheek. Finn was about to decline the offer when Jake says "Whoa, let her kiss your cheek, man! It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!" Other than this, there are no references of an unlikely romantic relationship between Jake and Tree Trunks, although they remain close friends.
Jake initially has a fear of vampires, which makes him terrified of Marceline. Marceline can't help it and likes to scare Jake, but in "Henchman," Jake will not accept the fact that Marceline is not evil, and almost murdered her by exposing her to sunlight. However, by Season Two, Jake seems to have accepted that she is not evil and has gotten over his fear of her, although Jake was in Finn's pocket during the events of "It Came from the Nightosphere," and because Marceline attends Finn and Jake's party in "Power Animal" and movie night in "Video Makers." In "Go With Me," Jake was arguing with her of what to tell Finn to do so he can impress Princess Bubblegum and ask her to go with him to the movies ." As shown in "Heat Signature," Jake is now friends with Marceline and visits her house to watch movies. He also is concerned when Marceline is in danger in "Memory of a Memory." They have become close friends, although Jake still holds some level of fear for her, as exemplified in "Marceline's Closet," where he is clearly trembling at the mere thought of what Marceline will do to him and Finn at the realization that they broke into her house and invaded her privacy.
Jake was very aware of Finn's previous crush on Princess Bubblegum, so Princess Bubblegum and Jake have a rather strange relationship. They are good friends, though. Jake and Princess Bubblegum rarely speak to each other, but in "Incendium," Princess Bubblegum calls him "puppy" in a sweet, baby voice even letting him rest his head on her lap, and in the episode "Ricardio the Heart Guy" Jake and Princess Bubblegum teased Finn's love for Princess Bubblegum. In "Princess Cookie," Jake stated that he hated her because he thought it was unfair that Princess Bubblegum didn't let him be a mailman and made him be a milkman, though it is possible he was just saying this to stall Baby-Snaps. In "Burning Low," Jake misinterprets Princess Bubblegum's attempts at keeping Flame Princess stable as jealousy, and when she returns again looking for Finn, Jake furiously berates her for causing Finn so much emotional pain and for being a "heartless monster." After stabilizing Flame Princess, Jake notices Bubblegum's reaction to Finn and Flame Princess' "kiss" (each kissing a rock to symbolize kissing each other) and mocks her for being jealous, only for Princess Bubblegum to tell him to shut up.
The few times Jake and the Ice King are together, they are usually enemies, as seen in "The Eyes" where Jake tries to beat him in battle. However, in "Holly Jolly Secrets Part II" it is implied that both Finn and Jake had "a fleeting moment of empathy" for him. In "Holly Jolly Secrets Part I," the episode prior, the Ice King says "You know how Jake is: 'stretch this stretch that,' blah!" implying that Jake's abilities are rather annoying to him.
Prismo and Jake hang out together in the episode "Jake the Dog." They became quick friends and Jake rated Prismo as "A strong number three on my cool guys list." Jake enjoys hanging with Prismo, but implies that Prismo needs a girlfriend because he's so lonely. At the end of the episode, Prismo states that he would like to hang out with Jake more in the Future.
At the beginning of "Incendium," Jake seems to like her as a girlfriend for Finn. However, after she shows her hot-headed side (and her father calls her his "evil daughter") Jake seems to be afraid of her. In "Hot to the Touch," Jake continues to think that she is evil and tries to make Finn understand that.
Jake greatly respects Finn's relationship with Flame Princess, and does everything he can to keep it intact, including keeping his distance when the two are spending time together. Jake also defended Flame Princess when Princess Bubblegum apparently attempted to keep the couple apart. After "Burning Low," Jake no longer sees her as evil and just wants Finn to be happy.
Joshua and Margaret are Jake's parents who first appeared in a flashback in "Memories of Boom Boom Mountain." Confirmed on Pendleton Ward's Formspring, Finn and Jake's parents are dead, although when or how they died has not been revealed. During his flashback as a child in the episode "Crystals Have Power," Jake was shown to have a living brother named Jermaine. Jake is often reminded of his family, as shown in "Beautopia."
While Finn and Lady Rainicorn are apparently Jake's two favorite people, he has a number of other acquaintances, listed in his cell phone (see Jake's phone), as well as President Porpoise who he web-chats with.
Jake and the Squirrel are enemies, because Jake wouldn't publish the Squirrel's letter in his newspaper advice column, and now the Squirrel wants revenge.
In "My Two Favorite People," Jake befriends a boy named Tiffany in an attempt to get Finn and Lady Rainicorn jealous of him. However when Jake makes up with Lady, Finn fights Tiffany and spits on him, causing Tiffany to run away screaming. Before leaving, he vows that he will still become Jake's best friend, although he has not appeared in any other episode since.
After Susan Strong tried to eat the Candy Kingdom, Jake starts to think she is crazy as shown in "Beautopia." Jake constantly repeats that she is insane to Finn throughout the episode, and follows Susan and Finn to annoy and disrupt them.
When Jake had a Croak Dream with the Banana Man in it, he was scared of the Banana Man at first. As Jake grew to accept death, his dislike of the Banana Man lessened. Jake thinks that he and Banana Man are destined to meet again, when Finn isn't around.
In the episode "His Hero," Jake stated he had a secret crush on Billy. And whenever they meet, Jake keeps saying "I love you, Billy!"
In "Princess Cookie," Jake befriends Baby Snaps once he knows his story about keeping the hostages. Jake is also happy when Baby Snaps says he reminds him of a mailman he knew.
Disguises and other personalitiesEdit
Jake's subconscious is the subconscious manifestation of Jake that appears in the episode "The Witch's Garden." He is first seen at the River of Junk when Jake said that crossing the river looked hard. Jake's subconscious then appears before Jake and also tells him that it is too hard to cross the river, and that Jake should simply wear a hat instead. This suggests that Jake's subconscious has a personality similar to Jake's. He later appears when Jake is making his appeal to the Witch in order to get his powers back. When Jake refuses to give in to the Witch's humiliating demands, Jake's subconscious tells Jake that he is the subconscious form of Jake's old magical self, and is therefore beginning to die. This makes Jake start to cry and apologize. The Witch is thoroughly happy with Jake's sorrow and decides to take pity on him. She returns his powers and subsequently restores the vitality of his subconscious self. Jake and his subconscious then leave the Witch's garden in laughter after Jake takes away the Witch's cane, rendering her powerless.
Although Jake's subconscious is translucent and merely Jake's subconscious, he is still solid as when Jake cried over his dying body, tears ran off to his sides. It can be assumed that only magical beings can see Jake's subconscious because while Jake was having a vibrant conversation with his subconscious, Finn tells him to "stop talking to yourself!" (however, since Jake's subconscious is himself Jake, another interpretation could be that Finn literally meant that Jake should stop talking to "himself.") The Witch who stripped Jake of his magical powers was also somehow able to see him and hear him.
The Conductor is the main antagonist in "Mystery Train." Throughout the episode, he comes and goes during the train ride, and begins creeping Finn out. Not until all other suspects are dead is he actually suspected of murdering all the candy people, because according to Finn, "It's never the creepy guy who's the murderer." After supposedly "murdering" everybody, including Jake, Finn chases him across the entire length of the train. After a short one-on-one battle in the train's control room, he is revealed to be Jake in disguise-via pink and blue paint and his stretchy powers. The paint may be some sort of liquid candy, since Jake licked it off of himself after he revealed himself.
Magic Fist is the disguise Finn and Jake wore in "Wizard Battle" in order to be eligible to compete. Jake was the 'magic second head' of Magic Fist and Magic Fist's Limbs are Jake's arms and legs. Since Jake cannot see while his head is inside the cloak, Finn tells Jake where to attack with clock position code.
Even though Jake was not the Gut Grinder, he believed himself to be the Gut Grinder so much he became one. And throughout the episode the scared townspeople thought Jake was the Gut Grinder. The Gut Grinder was actually Sharon the mayor's wife. Soft People, Cube People, and Spiky People all thought that Jake was the Gut Grinder.
When entering the Spiky Village in the episode "Gut Grinder;" Finn gave Jake a pair of "Groucho glasses" so that the Spiky People wouldn't think Jake was the Gut Grinder. Jake donned the combination glasses/ nose/ mustache and introduced himself as "Groucho," a clear homage to Groucho Marx.
Baron of the GrasslandsEdit
In Incendium, Jake claims to be the "Baron of the Grasslands," and an envoy of "Prince" Finn. Jake pretended that he was of royal blood to court Flame Princess for Finn, but later on discovers that Flame Princess is evil.
In the episode "The Creeps," Jake wears a tall top hat with a green mask along with a purple cape with a tuxedo and a bow tie. He also wears black shoes. Jake shows lack of appreciation for his given name when he throws the card on the ground. In the episode, Finn thinks he is behind the mystery of the haunted, old house but the whole time it is Jake. He has been planning that prank for months and days.
In the episode "Trouble in Lumpy Space," Jake was turned lumpy during the Mallow Tea Ceremony when Lumpy Space Princess falls on him and bites him causing Jake to get The Lumps. When he turned back to normal Jake, he was at Promcoming and he fell on the antidote that Finn brought. He is pink and his face looks the same. He only has four lumps not including his tail, and talks like Lumpy Space Princess. He also developed an attitude similar to Lumpy Space Princess.
Demon Jake appears in "Daddy's Little Monster" so they can sneak into the Nightosphere. He sings "Demon Apathy" in this form. Jake looks like a quadrupedal demon with big and sharp teeth.
Zombie Jake appears in "From Bad to Worse," when he was bitten by a Candy Zombie. Zombie Jake looks like Jake, but with grey skin and cracks throughout his skin, along with light green eyes. Zombie Jake is the first zombie to be cured in "From Bad to Worse," but turns back into a zombie merely seconds later after being bitten again. A different version of Zombie Jake appears in the Adventure Time game, Rhythm Heroes.
Jakesuit appears in "The Silent King." This is the only way the goblins won't see their "King" being 'un-kingly.' The appearance of 'Jakesuit' is Jake as an armor with a hole for Finn's head. The hole looks like the hole on Finn's hat.
Milk Man/Mail Man JakeEdit
n the episode "Princess Cookie," Jake dresses as a milk man in order to try to rescue the hostages. Finn dresses in an outfit similar to that of a ninja, pretending to be Jake's shadow. In the end of the episode, dressed as a mail man, he delivers a daisy crown to Baby-Snaps.
In the episode "The Lich," after real Finn and Jake are pulled in the wormhole by the Lich disguised as Billy the scene goes to another dimension where we see Alternate Universe Finn with a robotic arm and playing a flute, Jake is seen as a normal dog with small eyes and has no shapeshifting or stretching powers and is unable to speak but barks like a normal dog. This was caused by Finn's wish for the Lich's nonexistence.
Don Juan Cherry TempoEdit
In the episode "Goliad" he calls himself Don Juan Cherry Tempo. It was as a result of his anger and frustration at the nursery children. He also turned a cherry like color and started barking. His attitude was one of the bases of Goliad's new formed evil character.
