The Empress is one of the secondary antagonists of the Adventure Time mini-series Stakes. She is voiced by Rebecca Romjin.
As a member of the Vampire King's court, The Empress enjoyed all the luxuries the vampire hive had to offer such as devoted servants and premium blood decorated with gold leaf. Marceline fought The Empress centuries ago when she was on a mission to protect the remaining humans from vampires. Marceline managed to defeat her and gain her powers of invisibility. The Empress' dialogue in The Empress Eyes suggests that she met and hypnotized Simon Petrikov before he fully transitioned into the Ice King. She seemed to have make him perform a series of degrading acts to toy with him.
The vampires are resurrected after Princess Bubblegum removes Marceline's vampire essence from her. After a short period, the Vampire King and his court manifest. The Empress makes a case for resurrecting the vampire hive, suggesting that they conquer and enslave the local populace. When it appears that disagreements are breaking up the vampire court, The Empress parts ways with the group to go rebuild her army.
She heads towards the Ice Kingdom, where she apparently mesmerizes the Ice King and gets him to deliver Finn so she can attempt to feast on his human blood after she expressed dissatisfaction with penguin blood. After Ice King has captured Finn and later Marceline, the Empress orders him to kill the latter, only for him to refuse and start an argument with her. After Finn and Marceline have freed themselves, the former distracts the Empress, allowing the latter to use the Ice King's powers to trap her in ice. Before Marceline can stake the Empress, Ice King prevents her to do so by blocking her path, but ignores the Empress' demands, eliciting her to put him deeper under her spell. However, it is later revealed that Ice King is too crazy and stupid to be mesmerized, and is only doing her bidding because "she is a woman". The Empress then upsets the Ice King by scolding him, leading Finn to console him. After the two left, Marceline stated that it will be the last time the Empress toys with Simon's feelings and attacks the Empress, but is quickly overwhelmed by her. However, before the Empress can hypnotize her, she is immobilized by Bubblegum, allowing Marceline to stake her and suck her soul.
The Empress wears a long black dress, with a golden snake that is wrapped around her waist and neck. Her eyes are also covered by her dark purple hair, which has a pink gem in the middle and tied into a bun. Underneath, she has large pink eyes, which she uses to hypnotize people and put them under her spell. As demonstrated by The Fool, she is able to hypnotize people with her gem rather than using her eyes or chanting. Jake describes the Empress as "black drapes on a cake pop".
