The Gauntlet of the Hero Billy was the mythical weapon of renowned hero Billy and was thought to be the only weapon that could harm the Lich. When used, it could fire extremely powerful blasts of energy.

Episode appearances

Princess Bubblegum reveals it in one of her castle's secret rooms and gives it to Finn in the episode "Mortal Folly." Billy's gauntlet is kept in a chest, which is decorated with two green diamond-shaped studs. The chest is locked with a gold key in possession of Princess Bubblegum. It is not clear how she came into possession of the gauntlet, but according to Adam Muto, Billy may have entrusted it to Princess Bubblegum when he retired.[1] When the chest is opened, the scene is filled with bright light, and an unrecognized voice shouts "Billy!" The gauntlet seems to possess some degree of sentience, as it sheds a tear when Finn hits it in the eye to make it stop firing a blast. In addition, the gauntlet wouldn't work for him again until he apologized. The Lich easily shatters the gauntlet to tiny pieces when Finn tries to attack him with it.

In a less noteworthy appearance in "His Hero," a young Billy is seen wearing it throughout the entirety of the "Billy's Song" montage. In the montage, Billy doesn't use the gauntlet in any remarkable fashion. Billy, being dead, currently does not own the gauntlet.

Appearance

The gauntlet is silvery-blue with five fingers and a thumb. There are metal bands on every knuckle and the wrist. A blue gemstone is attached to its forearm. On the top of the hand is an eye which can open and close on its own. Like Billy, the gauntlet has five fingers and a thumb as opposed to the typical three fingers and a thumb nearly every other human and humanoid in Ooo possesses. When it is placed on Finn's arm, the gauntlet will shrink to a useable size.
