Finn is always ready with his sword to do what is right. In this case, pop lots and lots of bloons.
~ BATTD Description

Finn is a Character in Bloons Adventure Time TD. He has a short range, attacks with a sword, and is the first tower in the Bloons TD series to keep hold of a damage-causing object. He is unlocked as soon as players begin the game in Treefort Exterior where he is joined by Max.

Description[edit | edit source]

Finn is a thin, light-skinned Human sporting a sky blue t-shirt, blue shorts, black shoes and green backpack. His head is primarily covered by a large, white hat with a face opening. When attacking the bloons, he slashes at them with his sword of choice, which can change depending on the type of sword equipped.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Finn is a melee fighter, meaning he must be placed close to the track, making some situations difficult to utilize his utmost potential due to crowding of other towers or lack of a major corner to maximize time spent by bloons inside his swinging distance. To compensate for this downside, Finn is cheap and attacks quite fast, making him a good option for early game.

Finn often performs the best when around other, as his two separate team upgrades allow him to specialize into two areas: Bound by Word is a great option if Finn is placed near the end of the track to help fend off nasty stragglers or dangerous rushes, whereas Brofist is a good choice for some extra income and heals 10 lives per round, which helps if the player typically fails to counteract rushes on a chronic basis or just healing off one major rush.

What Finn excels the most at fighting is M.O.A.B. Class Bloons. The MOAB Ripper upgrade gives him a very high MOAB popping power (comparable to the MOAB Mauler, but with much higher speed) and his Flying Kick can deal massive damage while also serving as a supportive stun for others to dish out more pops to the MOAB hit. When equipped with Power Ring of Knockback, Finn can even reduce a ZOMG down to its children BFBs, although M.O.A.B. Class Bloons gain health over time by round scaling.

Other than his short range Finn's other weaknesses are complete lack of Camo Bloon detection and Lead Bloon popping power without support. This also leeches into his MOAB-Class prowess, as DDTs are fast and have properties of a Camo Bloon and a Lead Bloon, meaning that they can't be attacked, or damaged by him without help of other Characters. This problem is further elaborated upon in the Hall-ooo-ween event, where Finn's physical attacks being unable to harm Ghost Bloons makes MOABs with the property completely immune to his attacks. Such Ghost Bloon problem can only be countered if equipped with Fire Sword, allowing him to damage Ghost Bloons.

He can gain many speed boosts from Finn Sword, Baker's Shard, Bubblegum's Hair etc. On top of that royal promise makes him almost always use flying kick, Missile stacks with speed boosts and royal promise making him the best user for the Missile.
