Top 10 Best Gravity Falls Characters

The Top Ten
1 Dipper Pines Dipper Pines is one of the main characters from the Disney cartoon Gravity Falls which aired from 2012 to 2016. He is the twin brother of Mabel Pines.

When I clicked on the "Top Ten Gravity Falls Characters" list, I was pleasantly surprised to see my personal favorite character, Dipper Pines, at the number one spot. Dipper has been my favorite character since Gravity Falls aired in 2012. He has helped me through my childhood and assured me that growing up is fine.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels like the female version of him. He seems so real that I sometimes forget he's a cartoon character. I love how he's so normal but so creative at the same time. Even his name is creative. And even though Gravity Falls has ended, I feel he will always be there with me through my awkward preteen/teen years.

Cheers to Dipper, my favorite fictional character of all time.

2 Mabel Pines Mabel Pines is one of the lead characters of the Disney XD animated series Gravity Falls. The character is voiced by Kristen Schaal, and designed by the series creator, Alex Hirsch. She is inspired by Hirsch's own twin sister, Ariel Hirsch. She is a caring, boy-crazy 12 year old girl that spent the... read more

She is the funniest character, but she also is serious when she needs to be. I also like her because she is a good sister. She has good chemistry with Dipper, and usually helps him with quests and decisions.

I also love this character because she is into girly things, but still likes having caterpillars on her face. A unique character with a unique style. Great voice actor. Too many great lines, both funny and meaningful, to not be #1.

Not gonna lie, I kind of have a crush on her, too. Not in a creepy way, I just think someone like her would be an awesome person to spend time with.

3 Stan Pines Stanley "Stan" Pines, also known as Grunkle Stan, is one of the main characters of the Disney animated series Gravity Falls, created and voiced by series creator Alex Hirsch.

Stan is my favorite character in the whole show. He's a very complex and interesting character who cares about his family more than himself. He was willing to sacrifice his mind just to save his family. He's selfless, hilarious, and caring.

In my opinion, he is a very well-written character and the best in Gravity Falls.

Why is he so low on the list? He's very funny and clearly the most complicated character. Most people think he caused all the trouble in Gravity Falls, but if he had actually burned the journal, many things would never have happened. And in the final, he actually risked his memories to atone for the things he had done.

4 Wendy Corduroy Wendy Blerble Corduroy (born ca. 1997) is a major character in the animated series, Gravity Falls. She is a tall, laid-back teenager working a part-time job at the Mystery Shack. Fun-loving and rebellious, she frequently shirks responsibility for activities that she finds more enjoyable, such as hanging... read more

Wendy is dark, average, and your normal teenager. NOT! She is actually Mabel in the future! Wendy is my second favorite behind Dipper and Bill Cipher. She's cool with her parka hat and her clothes. She is an unseen employee in some episodes, but I still like her.

She also LOVES Dipper! I like Dipper too. It can be seen in the Fixing It with Soos short, where they failed at a golf cart stunt together.

Really? Only number 6? Aside from Stan (maybe), Wendy is the most badass character in the series! She's one of those people you just want to be friends with because they're so interesting.

Who else in this series would be capable of backflipping over an escaped convict who's twice their size, pinning his arm behind his back, grabbing the group's ringleader to use as a human shield, yanking a key from around his neck, and hot-wiring an abandoned police car, all while drop-kicking said ringleader into the group of escaped convicts? That's just epic!

While it would be nice for her to appear more, I also think the lower number of appearances actually fits her personality. In conclusion, "Wendy! Wendy! Wendy!"

5 Soos Ramirez

I love Gravity Falls so much.

Soos is the best character on TV. I love him. He's the best! So funny, and his voice is a masterpiece!

"Soos and the Real Girl" was a good episode and had some of the best Soos moments. Soos is the best Gravity Falls character, and just imagine him saying, "I'm the coolest dude!" He is the coolest, dude.

I love him because he seems like that regular fat and dumb guy, but he is actually kind of intelligent at times, has a huge heart, and has a certain style of humor that isn't quite like anyone else.

6 Bill Cipher Bill Cipher is a triangular dream demon formerly existent only in the mindscape who wished to gain access to the real world. He has been running amok in Gravity Falls, Oregon since being summoned by Stanford Pines over thirty years ago. He is known for his mysterious demeanor and sadistic humor. He... read more

Bill Cipher is certainly my favorite character in Gravity Falls for these reasons: he's laid-back for a villain, he's entertaining, and he's someone you shouldn't piss off. He doesn't bother to care about the needs of others. He just shrugs them off. He's also really funny and entertaining to listen to.

But don't go making him angry. I've seen what he looks like when he's pissed, and it isn't pretty. See? A well-designed villain is one whose anger and malicious intents are blanketed by his laid-back nature and his tendency to crack jokes. In other words, a true villain has character, and Bill Cipher fits this title perfectly.

7 Waddles

He's so adorable and caused both heartwarming and heartbreaking moments throughout the show.

Bonus points for his super cute relationship with Mabel.

Waddles is the real main character of the show. I don't think he got enough screen time.

Waddles is just adorable. I don't know what else to tell you.

8 Ford Pines

He is literally one of the best characters in the show. It's kind of sad that more people like characters like Waddles and McGucket when nearly every part of the plot is influenced by Ford. The fandom doesn't really give him enough credit. And I actually don't blame him for having trust issues. He was manipulated by Bill to the point where he was traumatized.

He is my third favorite character in this show. Was he stubborn? Kind of. But was he selfish or evil? No and no. I'm actually sad to see that the fandom treats him like he's some selfish monster, which is just not true. Ford is a smart and pretty cool character in general. He also fought back when he could.

9 Pacifica Northwest Pacifica Northwest is a character in the cartoon Gravity Falls made by Alex Hirsch. She's known for being rich and hating Mabel.

Pacifica is by far one of the best characters I have ever seen in a show. She has had the best character development out of anyone in the show. She started off as the stereotypical popular, pretty, and mean girl, and remained like this for many episodes until Season 2.

In the golf episode, she actually seemed nice and was genuinely thankful for everything Mabel was doing for her. A few episodes later, in the Northwest Mansion episode, she became my absolute favorite. She had a reason for her attitude and personality, and I felt bad for her. She finally stepped up, beat the villain, saved the day, and let everyone into the mansion.

The best.

10 Old Man McGucket

The "old kook" of the town is always a funny gag, overused or not. And Old Man McGucket is no different. Random, nuts, and sometimes quite creepy, he is a character that has enthralled viewers with his strange logic and unprovoked randomness.

It's rather a shame that he didn't write the journals, but, then again, maybe it would be a little too obvious to have the most unlikely character write them. I watch Gravity Falls primarily for the random yelling of McGucket and will keep on watching for the Mystery Twins, Grunkle Stan, Wendy, and Soos. An amazing show with some amazing characters.

The Contenders
11 Candy Chiu Candy Chiu is a character in the cartoon Gravity Falls made by Alex Hirsch. She's known for being Mabel and Grenda's best friend.

She's cool and adorable! She may not be in the show very much, but everything she says is so funny!

Her voice actress, Niki Yang, also does the voices of BMO and Lady Rainicorn in Adventure Time!

How can anyone not love her? Her awesome approach to life, "I'm a boy now... What's up, dudes? Let's grow some mustaches," "I welcome you, death," and "How many times do I have to tell you, Kevin, I'm not interested."

I LOVE Candy. She's such an amazing character. I hope that she will be in future Gravity Falls projects. We need her back.

12 Grenda

I think Grenda needs to be higher on this list. Not because she's my favorite, but because she is a unique, funny, and creative character compared to her counterpart Candy, who is a flat and boring character, not to mention a stereotype as well.

There are so many genuinely funny Grenda lines - the more I think about it, the more I think she is underrated. (As for Candy... she has no memorable moments or funny lines. I honestly think the reason Candy is liked more is by the Asians in the fandom who like her for her race and not characterization.)

13 Giffany

I love characters that seem nice and innocent at first but become creepy and menacing when you say the wrong thing or let them become too attached. Giffany is one of those villains that gives you a chill down your spine when you see her get angry.

How she says things in a cute and affectionate voice when the context is horrifying, the way she cannot handle rejection (after being returned three times, and almost being deleted), and the expressions conveyed beautifully through a well-drawn character add to her charm as a villain.

Personally, she is one of my favorites and I hope she returns for another episode someday down the line.

14 'Lil Gideon

Gideon is my fifth favorite character in the show. He was smart and dumb at the same time and learned to earn love. He also had some character development. In general, he was just a pretty cool character.

He's that sort of comically evil character who you rarely take seriously when he's a bad guy, but if he really needs to, he can turn up the dial and be intimidating.

Hand that Rocks the Mabel, Little Dipper, Dreamscaperers, and Gideon Rises are all awesome. Thanks to Gideon.

15 Tambry

Another character I can relate to a lot! She's an emo, doesn't care about things, and is hung up on her phone all the time. Just like me!

I heard someone shipped Wendy with Tambry as a lesbian couple.

Yeah, she's cool. I could see Tambry and Lee together.

16 Multi-Bear

This character only has one scene, but he's already on the list. Underrated. Hirsch, bring him back.

Beware of inviting Multi-Bear over to your house, for he will use up all of your toilet paper.

I did research on Babba, and it's based on a real band called Abba, which ended in 1982, 30 years ago from 2012!

17 Robbie

I like Robbie because he's very relatable. As a bit of an emo myself, he knows what it's like to be thumped on and thrown in the dirt. I am a very depressive person, and whenever I see his character, it's like I'm looking at a mirror.

Honestly, anyone who knows Fall Out Boy will understand this. The first second I saw Robbie, I thought, "Wow. He's exactly like 2000s Pete Wentz, except Pete isn't a big jerk like this guy."

Robbie was literally just vital to the development of Dipper and Wendy. Without him, Dipper really wouldn't have become as much of a man! Yes, I said it, Robbie really is useful.

18 Summerween Trickster

You know a cartoon is awesome when they make a parody of No Face.

So why now do we have a Spirited Away reference over here?

19 Soos' Grandmother

Aww, Soos, your grandma is adorable. Her skin is so soft! MABEL! Quit being creepy.

20 Stan's Brother

We barely got any of him, but we all know he is going to be a major character.

21 Toby Determined

"Toby Determined"... This name reminds me of Toby Fox and Undertale. Why? Both are males, both have the name "Toby," and it also reminds me of Undertale because his last name is "Determined." When you die in Undertale, ASGORE tells you to stay determined.

Razzle dazzle, friends! It's me, the Razz Dazzler! This is what my life has become!

"From now on, you can call me Bodacious T!"

22 Tad Strange

I don't think he's normal. I mean, anyone in Gravity Falls isn't as strange as Strange. I think he has something to do with Bill Cipher!

Best, funniest guy, even though he's only been in one episode. Guy's a-okay.

He's so relatable. Everyone likes bread.

23 Beavers

They love cavorting! That deserves a hug!

They are so darn cute. Enough said.

Dipper should get a beaver. They're just so awesome and adorable.

24 Judge Kitty Meow Meow

Haha, it's so funny that they actually put this here!

A true one-of-a-kind and thoughtful character.

25 Time Baby

He is a time baby. Do I have to say any more?

May Time Baby have mercy on your soul!

"Oh no, a tantrum! Whatever will I do about that? HOW ABOUT THIS!"
"Oh snap, he just killed Time Baby!"
