The Lich Ki
You are alone, child. There is only darkness for you, and only death for your people. These Ancients are just the beginning. I will command a great and terrible army; and we will sail to a billion worlds. We will sail until every light has been extinguished. You are strong, child. But I am beyond strength. I am the end. And I have come for you, Finn.
~ The Lich

No child! It's all true! The book has great power! I can make you live... Forever! Anything you want! Just give me that BOOK!
~ The Lich

The Lich renderjake
Everywhere you will die. You. Your Family. Everyone will die. Over and over. Mountains of broken bodies beneath the wheel.
~ The Lich

The Liches Hand
You bested me in many words, child. But I always return. Yes, while a mortal world doubts and questions, I know exactly what I am. I am the ceaseless wheel, the last scholar of GOLB. I am your doom.
~ The Lich to Finn

Attack Potency: At least Moon level, likely Large Planet level (He was the meteor which killed the dinosaurs. Stronger than the Citadel Guardians, who could defeat Monsters who destroyed planets. Almost destroyed all life on Ooo after the war. Was said to be able to destroy all of Ooo.

Stamina: Superhuman

Range: Planetary

Standard Equipment: The Enchiridion when possessing Billy. Otherwise none.

Intelligence: Gifted. The Lich is a diabolically cunning being whose knowledge and experience seems to be shared among every Lich from alternate timelines, in which there are infinite. The Lich employs a selection of powerful magical spells and abilities into combat, most of which seem to be based around affecting the target's mind. The Lich has the ability to possess others and has the intellect to act just like the individual they're possessing, as seen in how similar his personality was to Billy's when he possessed his body.

Weaknesses: As a being of death, The Lich is deathly weak to life-based powers. This can be seen in the episode Escape from the Citadel in which a small dab of the Citadel's "healing water" completely incapacitated The Lich, causing him to devolve into a being of love (Sweet P). The Lich is a being whose primary function is to bring death and destruction, and when he is unable to kill anything, he becomes paralyzed

Note: According to the Adventure Time Encyclopedia, Hunson Abadeer admits the Lich is his only real rival.
