Sweet and formidable, Bubblegum uses her high-tech guns and Princess powers to win the day.
~ BATTD description
Uses her custom bubblegum blaster to damage and slow bloons.
~ Short description

Princess Bubblegum (frequently shortened to PB) is a hero in Bloons Adventure Time TD. She is the third Adventure Time-related hero in the game, along with being the fourth hero to be unlocked in the game. She is unlocked in the Candy Throne Room, by completing every level in the Candy Cornered adventure. Her main attack is to shoot wads of bubblegum at Bloons, which is similar to a Glue Gunner with Glue Splatter but with a small blast radius, and it also pops one Bloon layer upon impact. As with all BATTD heroes, only one of Princess Bubblegum may be placed at one time. She costs $650 to place and uses Gun weapons.

PB has a character variant called Warrior Bubblegum who fits in with a later phase of the character's history. This variant wields a sword and spawns characters that act as sentries, much like the Monkey Engineer.

Star Boost[]

PB will receive the following permanent boosts as she levels up:

  • 2 stars - Base attack cooldown decreased by 0.1*
  • 4 stars - Base range increased by 2
  • 6 stars - Base attack blast radius increased by 2
  • 8 stars - Base attack cooldown decreased by 0.1*
  • 9 stars - Base range increased by 3
  • 10 stars - Base attack changed to corrosive gum which does 1 damage per second to bloons

*Shows "attack speed increased by X" in the official patch notes and in the game - this is misleading. The attack speed stat is the inverse of attack cooldown.

Princess Bubblegum is a relatively even split support-damage dealing hybrid.

As a base tower, PB is to be used like the Glue Gunner. Due to her blasts dealing area damage, she can solo the first few rounds on easier maps. However, the low damage dealt also makes her gum (which is basically glue) less effective against stronger bloons. The damage is applied before the gum effect, and her gum only soaks through one layer. Additional upgrades can make her better suited for crowd control though. Super Intelligence is particularly useful as it allows her to both remove regrow and remove camo statuses from Bloons. Thus, before the player has good speed trinkets and Liquifier, she is best used as a support with lots of range if the player lacks Tuxedo Jake.

Later on, especially starting at Level 7, she is best used as a DPS tower with her ability. Her ability makes her shoot a fast stream of jellybeans with high pierce and high DPS potential. This ability is only affected by specific bonus damage and attack speed, so MOAB Damage and Attack Speed are top priority.


  • Her ability is her main source of DPS and is mostly affected by attack speed, so certain weapons give it better DPS than others. Candy Cane Shotgun does not triple the projectiles of her ability, so it nerfs its attack speed. Instead, Liquifier should be used, combined with attack speed trinkets, Engineers Blueprints and Baby Tooth. This build is recommended especially if PB is level 7, as not only is she required for Royal Promise for Finn, but she also contributes a good amount of DPS and the support role is largely covered by Tuxedo Jake.
  • If opting for a support build instead, she is primarily for covering the map with influence buffs and debuffs. Thus, range trinkets, Web Gun, Googoomamameter, and Treetrunk's Apple Knife are most useful for the support build. Note that her support build gets outclassed by Tuxedo Jake once the player acquires him.

Version History[]

Character Profile and Leveling Up[]






  • The Super Intelligence upgrade icon is a possible reference to the Bloons TD 4 Camo Bloon popping into Pink Bloons.
  • Even without the Super Intelligence upgrade, PB can indirectly deal damage to Camo Bloons and cover them in gum by splashing. But she first should have a non-camo bloon be close to the camo bloon, so it's not a reliable strategy for Impoppable, especially with fast bloons starting with Round 10.
  • Despite the upgrade's description saying that it does "explosive damage", Soda and Mints' damage type is Normal Type (pops Black, White, Purple, Lead, Frozen) Normal, not Explosion Type (pops White, Purple, Lead, Frozen) Explosion, so the ability still damages DDTs.
  • PB is also part of a hidden achievement. If she is with Finn and Flame Princess on a map at the same time, the player will earn the achievement named "Awkward...".
  • The Royal Promise upgrade can be bought if Finn has Warrior Bubblegum but not Princess Bubblegum in his range, while still being in range of the latter.
  • In Martian Games events with the Magic Man rule, Magic Man can trigger the Royal Promise penalty by kidnapping Finn or PB while the Royal Promise is active.


  1. The game does not report her default damage type on her information screen, simply stating that it is "N/A". However, her gun attacks can pop Purple Bloons, Thermal Bloons, Lead Bloons, and Ghost Bloons
