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 from when Gravity Falls aired in 2012. He has helped me through my childhood and told me growing up is fine. And I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels like the female version of him. He seems so real 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.

Mabel's an adorable person, but Dipper takes the cake. He's just so awkward and often is the source of the best jokes in the show. He's a walking paradox. On one hand, he's skeptical and an analyzer and on the other he's deeply into mysteries and believes in the supernatural. He's an adventurous boy, but then he's this young adult who's interested in romance. A perfect example of a character in the midst of growing up and learning the way the world is and isn't. I also believe he's had a bit more character growth than Mabel and certainly more than the others in the cast.

All the main characters in Gravity Falls are great, but Dipper has to be the best. He's funny, super smart, adventurous, nice, honest, awkward, and all around an amazing person. He shows signs of his youth when engaging in silly activities with Mabel, but yet shows his mature side when taking responsibility for his actions and protecting his family and the people of Gravity Falls. He sacrifices many of his own aspirations just to keep Mabel happy, as evidenced by how he gave up his chance to date Wendy just to let Mabel have Waddles, as well as giving up his dream job working with Ford just so Mabel would not have to go back home alone. He has some really funny lines in the show and never hurts anyone's feelings.
He also has some great lines in the show, like when he says to Gideon that love is not taken, but earned. When he does make a rare mistake (like kind of breaking Candy's heart), he apologizes and promises to not make the same mistake again. Dipper Pines is a perfect ...more

Dipper is a clever intellectual, a first-rate snarker, a fiercely loyal friend, an overly-hard worker, and an incredibly brave person - not to mention talented, adaptable, and capable, all good traits in an adventure protagonist up against the challenges of a town perpetually inhabiting the Twilight Zone. He also has an enormous fear that his family and friends don't actually like him or think he's good enough, an insecurity which drives him to do many stupid things throughout the series. But while he makes plenty of mistakes, once they're addressed, he generally works hard to correct for them and learn from them - an earnest trait that shines and endears more as the series goes on, especially since other characters around him go in the exact opposite direction.

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 summer in the strange town of Gravity Falls, Oregon. She is very emotional and cares a lot for her brother Dipper.

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 meanigful, 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.

I love Dipper but Mabel is something special. Especially when you look around and realise there really aren't that many strong and likable female cartoon characters. And depictions of sisters are pretty much always negative! Anyone remember Didi from Dexter's Laboratory? How about Candace from Phineas and Ferb? D.W. , Meg Griffen or even Lisa Simpson? Sure siblings can be annoying but you also need to show their good sides and make them more than 'just the sister'. Mabel and Dipper are a duo and a kickass one at that.

But that's not why Mabel is one of my favorite characters of all time. She's funny, she's goofy, confident and she's happy just being herself!

I really love all of the character, they are extremely well created and have super hilarious and fun personalities. They are all assets to the show in their own way, and it just wouldn't be the same without them. But when it comes down to it, Mabel is probably my favorite. She's so positive and goofy, even when the world is ending she finds a way to be optimistic. I really admire her in that way. Plus her amazing sweaters and her adorable relationship with Waddled makes her so much more fun and adorable.

I love Mabel! She has a unique personality, and she helps Dipper a lot in his problems! Mabel is all smiles, but she really is just like anyone out there. She has problems, but she tries to make the best of every situation with a smile or a memorable quote! I admire her. And she's smart and clever in her own special way. And she is also thoughtful of others and tries to help them, even though it fails most of the time. It's sweet. And of course she's ADORABLE!

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 of the people think, he caused all the trouble in Gravity Falls, but if he actually had burned the journal, many things never happened. And in the final he actually risked his memories, to come up for the things he has done.

Grunkle Stan is the funniest character in gravity falls. He may have gotten into some illegal trouble. But let me say that. In not what he seems I literally screamed don't press the button because you could see how much he love the kids how he don't want them to get hurt. And I didn't thought for a second that he would do anything that will hurt the kids

I love Stan because he doesn't just scam people. He makes these stupid (and sometimes quite clever) things and makes people really believe it's real such as the corn-acorn. Although my favorite thing he made was the rock that looks like a face. It's not a face that looks like a rock! And not to mention his jokes are hilarious such as "I have a gesture I would like to show you", and "oh wait I'm alone! I can swear for real!" It's so funny! He should be at the top! CA$H MONEY️

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 out with her rambunctious friends or going on adventures with Dipper and Mabel Pines. Wendy represents the ice pack on the Zodiac, due to her cool demeanor in the face of danger.

Wendy is dark, average and your normal teenager. NOT! She is actually Mabel, In the future! Wendy is my second favourite behind Dipper and Bill Cipher. She's cool with her parka hat and her clothes. She is a 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 in 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 who you just want to be friends with because they're so interesting. Who else in this series would be capable of back-flipping over an escaped convict who's twice their size & is holding them by the back of the collar, pinning his arm behind his back, grabbing the group's ring leader to use as a human-shield, yanking a key from around his neck, & hot-wiring an abandoned police car while drop-kicking said ring leader 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 amount of appearances actually fit in with her personality. In conclusion, "Wendy! Wendy! Wendy! "

Wendy should be higher! I love Wendy so much! She's nice she's funny she's cool she makes #1 on my favorite character list! I want her to be my girlfriend in real life!

Wendy is basically your average teenager. Just kidding! She is just like Mabel but in the future! That's why she is my second favorite. (First is Mabel) GO WENDY!

5 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 is the main antagonist of Gravity Falls, although he doesn't play a central role in the series until season 2.

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 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.

Bill is a perfect combination of my two favorite types of cartoon villains:
1. The over-the-top comedic jerk villain
2. The intimidating, scary villain

What makes Bill so great is that he can go from playfully insulting you or telling jokes to doing all sorts of messed up stuff like entering your mind or taking control of your body. He has such a unique presence in the fact that you're happy to see him because he's very entertaining, but also afraid at what he's going to do to your favorite characters. Whenever Bill is on screen, he just steals the show. He's basically a comedian with all the powers of Satan, and that's what makes him the perfect villain to one of the greatest cartoons ever made.

Bill is a great character. In the fandom... Not so much.

The fandom has literally RUINED Bill. From flanderizing his character, to making him some flawless, pretty-boy anime blond, to shipping him with Dipper, to shipping him with themselves (yup, Bill x reader exists), to treating him as an utter joke, etc. The way Bill is portrayed in the fandom is just plain ridiculous and I sometimes feel ashamed to be in it due to this. But then I look back at the wonderful art and stories made in the fandom and realize that within it, there's still hope. Honestly, the fangirls have taken things WAY too far in the past few years, and I actually almost feel bad for this little dream demon.

Yep. I'm voting for the villain. Throughout watching Gravity Falls, I have grown to like Bill Cipher. He's very... interesting. Bill should be closer to the top. I like Bill for many reasons. His design is cool, his voice is awesome, and his personality is the best. Sure, he may be a little... twisted in some ways, but his insanity only makes him better! I like his dark humor, and overall, he's just a really funny, and cool character. Without Bill, Gravity Falls wouldn't be the same. It's also funny when he gets mad, to be honest. I like how he's always pretty calm, though. It upsets me that he's gone. Bill is the best evil dorito you are ever going to find.

6 Soos Ramirez

I love Gravity Falls sooo much.

Soos is the best character on TV I love hi
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.

The average fat guy you want to be friends with. He's the cousin you have who likes to be funny and eat chips all the time. Quote from "Dreamscapers": "There's a rat in the kitchen! It tried t touch me with it's weird bat fingers! " Another quote! "Think I can take these Burrito Bites into Stan's brain? Thumbs up? Thumbs down? You know what, I'm just gonna bring 'em! " HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE THIS GUY?

Soos, Is literally the kindest best friend you could ever have, He is hillarious, relatable, and just so likeable in almost all ways. I don't know If I would of ever watched Gravity falls if Soos never existed.

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.

He's cute! >w< But I like to stick with Bill.

8 Ford Pines

He is literally one of the best characters in the show. It's kinda 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? Kinda. 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 in when he could.

Lol it's sad that more people like Waddles and McGucket than Ford, when NEARLY EVERY part of the plot is influenced by Ford. I think a lot of the fandom doesn't give Stanford enough credit- when I first watched the show, I actually disliked Ford because he didn't show the rift to Mabel, he was arrogant, and he kinda started Weirdmageddon in a way- but I totally sympathized with him 1000% more after buying and reading Journal 3. I never realized all the trials he endured and how he was so traumatized after Bill's manipulation, I don't blame him for having trust issues anymore.

Stanford Filbrick Pines is my ABSOLUTELY FAVORITE character of all time when it comes to Gravity Falls. I mean like... Who wouldn't want to have 6 fingers on each hand? On Pix Panda, I'm even coloring in a picture of him winking for the love of Dungeons, Dungeons, and more Dungeons. Yes I will personally make that a phrase and he loves orange juice! I love this guy. If I were somewhere in my mid-sixtys, I would totally go out with him. I really hope that no one thinks it's weird that a teen would want to date him. He had gone missing into that portal in 1982, because the show takes place in the summer of 2012 and he had been gone for 30 years.

He's my favourite character! I'm surprised people don't like him more, with his history with Bill and him being the AUTHOR OF THE JOURNALS and all. He became even more likeable after the last Mabelcorn as we got a deeper look at his character. He is still sorely underused (cough roadside attraction cough), even after the show is over, but I'm so happy he got screen time in the finale. He's just so likable, him and Dipper make a great pair. His interactions with Mabel where pretty cute, to. Overall a great character, great backstory, even somewhat relatable, yet sorely underrated. (When he got turned to gold, I paused the ep and ran round the house yelling)

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 that stereotypical popular, pretty, and mean girl, and remained like this for a lot of episodes until Season 2, in the Golf episode is when she actually seemed nice, and actually was thankful for everything Mabel was doing for her, and finally a few episodes later, the Northwest Mansion episode is when she turned to my absolute favorite. She had a reason for her attitude and personality, and I felt bad for her, she finally stepped it up and beat the villain, saved the day, and let everyone in the mansion.
The best.

Some people say that Pacifica can't be justified as a good character because it's just one episode. But it's not. It is true that we see the most of Pacifica's personality (and relationship with Dipper) in Northwest Manor Mystery but in Golf War we do see a little of her character. And I agree, she is not a good person in season one (or at least when we see her) but in season two she becomes such a three dimensional character and a lot more likealble than before.

Gravity Falls is the 12th greatest animated show (according to ratings not my personal opinion) but is underrated. The characters on the show are not just cartoon characters and seem like real people and Alex Hirsch talks about them like real people. They all have flaws and no one is perfect, not in real life and not in Gravity Falls, and Pacifica is perfect example imperfection.

Pacifica is my fourth favorite character in the show. Because she just was. I don't really know why. But one reason is that she had character development. But after that, she was a pretty cool character. I didn't really like her friends though. And it was sad that she was forced to do a lot of those things. She's one of the best.

Pacifica is the most-developed side character in the entire series. While she started off seeming like a "one-dimensional, bleached-blonde valley girl stereotype," (good description, Mabel) the Northwest Mansion Mystery episode changed EVERYTHING. Learning that she acts like a total assh at all the time because her parents essentially FORCE her to was definitely one of the most true-to-life moments in the series. After Golf War, I certainly found her overall to be a lot more tolerable than I did before, & in the Mansion episode I actually felt BAD for her. It's a unique perspective that doesn't get much attention in cartoons, & I've honestly grown to appreciate it.

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 to have written 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.

He is so funny! Honestly some of the best jokes that the show ever had were all thanks to Old Man McGucket, the local kook. I think he is a truly awesome character and he should definitely be in the show more.

He is really smart, and he may have written the journals according to the society of the blind eye episode. He's still cray cray though!

I mean, how could you not love McGucket? He slaps himself to comunicate (As used in the Society of The Blind eye) Also that one episode where he's called "McSuckit", I mean, McGucket has such a well developed backstory and all that. I could go on with how fabulous he is..

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! And her voice actress (Niki Yang) does the voice 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 Dude's lets grow some mustaches"
"I welcome you death"
"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.

How did Candy get on this list? She's a really minor character, and doesn't do anything for the plot.

12 Grenda

I think Grenda needs to be higher on this list. Not because she's my favorite, but 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.)

She is awesome! Really is the shining star out of the female side character. Also she is voiced by a man which is awesome because her voice is 10 out of 10!

"Everybody QUIET! ", and "It's really hot out here, maybe you should take your shirt off" are some of the funniest lines of the show.

Grenda is an awesome friend to Mable and is self-conscious about her voice, and I think many girls could relate to her in some way.

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/affectionate voice when the context is horrifying, the way she cannot handle rejection (after being returned 3 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 some day down the line.

She is like any typical anime Yandere. She is sweet and kind, loyal and madly in love. Then pause her to go meet a real girl and she will make your life miserable until she is the only girl left, if you would want love then the pixelated daemon is your only choice.

I love Giffany! She's really cute and also she isn't a reference to Yandere simulator but she does have a Easter egg in Yandere simulator

She's awesome and the best villain so far.

14 'Lil Gideon

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

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.

Why everyone hates him? He's adorable. Funny and cute.

15 Tambry

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

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

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

I would like more of a main role of her.

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 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!

I love Multi-Bear because he listens to the "Disco-Girl" music.

17 Robbie

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

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".

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.

I have a secret huge crush on Robbie. I mean I'm sorry, but he plays guitar like a rock star, and has a band, and is so dark and brooding...

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

She is always so chill

She's old lady soft.

Just like my grandma

20 Stan's Brother

We barley 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.
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! "

Oh toby your so weird

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 guys a okay.

He's so relatable. Everyone likes bread.

"Tad, that means so much coming from you! "

23 Beavers

They love cavorting! That deserves a hug!

They are so darn cute. Enough said.

They don't count as a character.

They are not characters.

24 Judge Kitty Meow Meow

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

Why is this hammer squeaky?

Why is this here

25 Time Baby

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

May time baby have mercy on your soul!

Evil cute floating baby

"Oh no a tantrum what ever will I do about that HOW BOUT THIS" "Oh snap he just killed time baby"
