Finn the Human

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Finn the Human with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Adventure Time

Finn the Human is a 12-years-old hero with an awesome hat and a penchant for shouting math-related exclamations (despite being bad at the subject itself). Finn has an irresistible urge to help others no matter what as a result of not being helped as a child. Finn has a poorly-hidden romantic interest in Princess Bubblegum.

In the original short aired on Nickelodeon, Finn is voiced by Zack Shada. In the main series on Cartoon Network, Finn is voiced by Jeremy Shada.

Jeremy is fine. He was already good from the start but only got better with time. Plus his voice got deeper :D

Finn is apparently very popular on the site, but jokes aside, I did like Jeremy Shada's voice for Finn the Human and think he brought a lot of personality & energy to the role.

Zack Shada is good as well (especially just for a short), but he's a little flatter in his delivery.

I haven't watched Adventure Time in some time but I really did enjoy Jeremy Shada's performance as Finn, he really brought out the best in this heroic kid.

Zack Shada was also pretty good in the pilot, but ultimately Jeremy has had far more time in the role to really develop the character, so I'm going with him on this one.

Jeremy Shada's the best, but Zach did well for the pilot.
said at 6:04 PM on Tue Sep 8 2015
Zack set the groundwork for Finn, and to be fair to him, he had less time in the role; all he got to do was the pilot. If he had as much time in it as Jeremy, he might've shined just as much as him. As is, Jeremy's just had so much time to literally grow with the character, and so gets my vote.

Zack Shada's in his clip kinda reminds me of Enzo Matrix from ReBoot.

Zack's sounded younger, I personally think it fits Finn better, although, Jeremy's voice is equally as wonderful, I could listen to it just as often, it just doesn't appeal to me as much.

i like both of them the same amount, actually but im used to Jeremy Shada

I prefer Jeremy

@ShigyC Zack Shada voiced Finn in the un-aired pilot of Adventure Time. Jeremy Shada has voiced Finn since then.

Zack sounds too young. like 6 year old boy
said at 10:09 AM on Sun Feb 5 2017
That's because that was used for the pilot.
said at 10:09 AM on Sun Feb 5 2017
I forgot to add: In the pilot, Finn is 10.

Jeremy is better for sure, he sounds less naive and less annoying (plus he's cuter
said at 6:53 PM on Sat Oct 19 2013
I like Jeremy Shada's voice better in comparison to Zack's, it sounds more teenage and less childish.
said at 3:56 PM on Wed Oct 9 2013
Jeremy has more enthusiasm in his voice than his bro, Zack, does as Finn. I vote for him, but Zack was good as well in the role.

Jeremy makes Finn sound cool while Zack just sounds cute.
said at 8:52 PM on Fri Jun 14 2013
Zack sounds younger.
said at 5:51 PM on Sun May 26 2013
The biggest difference for me: Jeremy sounds like a slightly older version of Jake while Zack sounds like a younger version. I would believe this would be due to the target audience. The storyline of the cartoon is actually pretty good and sometimes can be a bit more 'mature' in some areas. So I think I prefer Jeremy.

I think I prefer Jeremy for Finn but I think Zack is cuter. ..#

Jeremy has gotten better with age, I really love his voice, but Zack had a youthful and entertaining performance as well. I'll go with Jeremy though.

Whoo, finally, I contributed to this VC, which has always been most popular for some reason : P

Ever since I've joined this has been the most popular Compare. What's with that?
said at 9:18 PM on Fri Jan 11 2013
@LordofEvil96 I guess it's so popular simply because it's connected to a really popular show.

Adventure Time won't last much longer when this kid grows up :P
said at 8:53 PM on Sun Jan 13 2013
@RyanRules95 Well they've addressed the whole thing with Jeremy getting older in the show simply by having Finn continually get older too. At the beginning of the series he was 12 but now he's 14.
said at 2:53 PM on Wed Jan 23 2013
@Maron Yep, and the producers of Adventure Time have made it known that they intend to keep Jeremy Shada as Finn no matter how much puberty changes his voice. Which is great in my opinion; I love how faithful they are to Jeremy, and how they actually make it so that Finn grows up in Ooo. Really adds to the show.

@coolgeek176 It hasn't always been like that though. There WAS a time here before this VC even existed, and around when it was actually made, it wasn't anywhere near as popular as it has been for a long time now.

They both sound awesome but Jeremy won this round.

I don't understand why this is always the most popular compare of the week.
said at 3:08 PM on Sat Sep 15 2012
@GothamRed My best guess is that new episodes of Adventure Time air every Monday, which is when the "Most Popular This Week" counters get reset. Naturally, after watching the show, the viewers come visit the show's page here and lead themselves to this voice compare upon noticing it.

I've been thinking, is there maybe a way to "hide" this VC? I mean like PW13 said, it's flabbergasting how this VC always gets the most views every week, especially since this isn't a heated comparison, and (I might add) that Adventure Time isn't very well-received, to say the least. :-/
NCZ (Admin)
said at 11:25 PM on Wed Aug 22 2012
@pokemastanumba1 Why would we hide a perfectly fine VC? Also, Adventure Time IS well-received. It has its haters, but it's not unanimously agreed to be a horrible series.
said at 3:45 PM on Thu Aug 23 2012
@NCZ I just don't understand why this particular VC is so popular. For the most part, VCs tend to be completely forgotten about only a week (or two) after they're made, unless it's for an iconic character (i.e. Ash, Superman, Batman, Sonic) or when a performance is newly added/updated.

As for Adventure Time, have you seen the ratings?
NCZ (Admin)
said at 3:51 PM on Thu Aug 23 2012
@pokemastanumba1 We've explained below why it gets so many views.
said at 7:06 PM on Thu Aug 23 2012
@pokemastanumba1 - Didjyou jest say that ADVENTURE TIME, thee best cartoon EVER created since the Dawn of Man, isn't "very well-received'? I politely disagree! With its references to Dungeons & Dragons and other obscure topics, perhaps it is too much humor for your mind to grasp! Adv. Time is THEE BEST EVER. Period.

@SKELETOYS Eh, it seems like a pretty good show, but I wouldn't go THAT far.
said at 9:13 PM on Thu Aug 23 2012
@SKELETOYS Wow, just calm down.

I meant it's generally not well-received. I understand that it's a favorite among its targeted demographic (children under the age of 10, obviously), so it certainly has an established fanbase. Just don't expect everyone beyond your age group to actually be enthralled with a cartoon about a 12-year-old kid wearing a doofy hat and has ADHD.

No offense to anyone who's a fan of Adventure Time though.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 9:42 PM on Thu Aug 23 2012
@pokemastanumba1 It actually does have a considerably-sized fandom outside its target audience.
said at 10:07 PM on Thu Aug 23 2012
@pokemastanumba1 - I apologize. I didn't mean to be such a loud mouth about it. I was born in 1965 so I'm fairly sure I don't fall in show's demographics. I grew up on Kimba the White Lion, The Flintsones, and all things Hanna Barbera. I like the subtle intelligence I find in Adventure Time and it's become a favorite of mine. Of course, I actually like Squidbillies and Aqua Teens just a tad more but those are REALLY an acquired taste! Another point I'd like to (calmly) make about Adventure Time is the brilliant music throughout the series! Hard to find that kind of creativity in your average kid's show. I respect your opinion pokemastanumba1 and am sorry if I was offensive. Peace.
said at 8:48 PM on Wed Aug 29 2012
@SKELETOYS No worries. :)

Back on-topic, I'm just getting tired of how this VC keeps getting the most views every week; it even recently became the most popular VC of all time! And if it really gets the most views, then wouldn't it have a LOT more votes? I find it really funny how the higher number hasn't even hit the 60 mark (as of me typing this).

I was shocked to discover Zack wasn't voicing Finn anymore once the series picked up... but didn't notice for a while. I always thought that Zack just hit puberty or something :P
said at 11:49 PM on Sat Mar 17 2012
I like Jeremy, since his voice is deeper..but Zack looks a-lot like Finn whenever he takes his hat off.
said at 11:10 AM on Mon Jan 16 2012
I remember Jeremy Shada from Miracle Run. That was a great movie since it had a cool message: autism. Which is coincidental since I have autism, myself.

Now for whom I'll be voting for... neither of them, to be honest. I don't quite care for Adventure Time. But I will still give props to both Shadas.
said at 5:45 PM on Tue Jan 3 2012
Why is it that Jeremy's voice is deeper in pitch, and he has a childish face, but Zack looks much older than him, but has a childish voice?
said at 11:43 AM on Fri Mar 16 2012
@Moni jeremy is 15 yrs old now they just didnt upgrade the picture yet. and they are not going to replace him since he made his voice out of a character voice for finn
said at 8:03 PM on Sun Dec 25 2011
I honestly think Zack sounds too high pitched for the voice of Finn. I definitely think Jeremy has a more scratchy voice and it just fits Finn's character better.
said at 10:47 PM on Thu Dec 8 2011
so i watch adventure time all the time probaly one of my favoret tv showes any way i get on the internet to see who the voice of fin is and it turnes out he is my cousin that i used to hang out with all the time! lol how crazy is that!
