The Lyre Player (also known as Minstrel) is a character in Adventure Time who appears in the episodes "Rainy Day Daydream" and "Blood Under the Skin." He lives in Finn's Imagination Land, where he welcomes Finn with a silly song (the "Imagination Song") and dance. He annoys Finn, so Finn imagines a penguin and a plate of spaghetti. The Lyre Player trips over the penguin and falls on his face into the spaghetti. He is voiced by Steve Little, who also voices the Duke of Nuts. He wears huge, fashionable pantaloons.
He returns as Sir Slicer's minstrel in "Blood Under the Skin," who plays the song "Finn The Blushing Baby." According to Sir Slicer, grandparents will sing this song to their grandchildren for generations to come, despite Finn's disapproval.
He looks like humanoid with skyblue skin and blonde hair. He also wears an orange Lute Suit with red padding similar to the one Finn wore in "Go With Me", and also wears an orange hat with a red visor.
- In the episode "Blood Under the Skin," the Lyre Player is listed in the ending credits as "Minstrel" instead.
- In the episode "Go With Me," Jake gave Finn almost the same outfit worn by the Lyre Player, which he dubbed a "Lute Suit."
- According to Andy Ristaino's Formspring, the Lyre Player in Finn's imagination and "Blood Under the Skin" are the same person. The voices were different because Steve Little was still trying to find the right voice for the character.
