Best Gravity Falls Characters
The Top Ten
Dipper Pines is one of my favourite main protagonist characters. His personality is very relatable. He is clever, funny and socially awkward yet he cares about his friends.
He's arguably the main character of the cartoon. He has a lot of info about the past of Gravity Falls. He also has found Book 1, 2 and 3! He also defeated Bill Cipher, The Illuminati that is probably the funniest Illuminati in history
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.
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
Mabel is no doubt the BEST! people may say that she's selfish may be but she is so like me and I am so like her!:> she is so positive and funny and kooky and goofy. :) I can't find anything bad about this character! She tries to help people when they really need it.And like a NORMAl person would she changes her sweater like almost every episode unlike some other TV characters. this character is like a role model.
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!
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 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.
An outstanding character who is definitely more than the money-grabbing archetype. He is in my opinion the funniest character as all his one liners are hilarious and he is often the focus of the sub-plots of girlfriend episodes.
Although he can be selfish and has done some questionable things, that's why I also see him as the best character. He has flaws which are balanced so well with a lot of heart and warmth, especially the moments he has with Dipper and Mabel.
He can also be absolutely epic and a badass (Scary-oke: Stan vs Zombies) while his interactions with the characters are funny and never boring.
He's a deeply complex and intriguing character and without doubt the best girlfriend character in my opinion. The top 5 would be for me personally:
2.) Dipper/Mable (Cheating I know but I just can't pick one over the other. Each offers something unique and their chemistry is excellent)
3.) Bill Cipher
The funniest guy in the show! The fact that he cares about literally nothing in the first few seasons is amazing! I really like him
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
I honestly reallly enjoy his character, he also has some really fun lines, I also Love How they designed him, perfection. Dorito boi, I really Love How its Not a character that makes you hate him, but make you Love him, I just reallly enjoy his character,
One of my favorite characters (that's hard to say with Mabel and Dipper): Bill is probably one of the funniest characters on the show, not to mention the most powerful. Bill is the best villain ever! He's adorable and his laugh is just so cute!
The only thing people are saying they don't like about Bill is that he's creepy. Yeah, Sure. He may creep you out sometimes, but honestly, THAT'S KINDA THE POINT OF A VILLAIN! Do you want him to not be creepy? That would take all the fun out of the adorable, little nacho. Who ever says they hate Bill Cipher got payed by Stan to say it or ate too much smile dip.
He's also got some of the best lines: "It's funny how dumb you are! ", "Reality is an illusion, the universe is a hologram! Buy gold, bye! ", and "Human soda! Imma drink it like a person! "
BILL IS AWESOME!
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.
He's silly (in my opinion), is a demon and makes fun of Gideon! (Which Gideon deserves by the way) and just a "Dream demon" wearing a top hat and a bow tie AND looks like the fudging Illuminati? Amazing! And if you look in the background of some episodes you can see him like in the episode "Rumble's Revenge" once Dipper enters the arcade and on one of the screens to your right you can see Bill there, like he's always watching like what he said in the episode "Dreamscapers" I just found him a really cool and likable character! Remember! "REALITY IS AN ILLUSION THE UNIVERSE IS A HOLOGRAM BUY GOLD BYE! "
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 is the most best character she's strong she's pretty and she's intelligent I don't know about you guys but I think Wendy should be 2ed or first for the best character in Gravity Fall I don't know how many seasons they have of this but I hope Wendy's always in every single episode and id like to know more about her past and her sense of fashion. Please tell me id absolutely love to know
Possibly the most Badass character in the whole show!+ she’s super chill and is also ready for an adventure and never fails to help her family/friends👑♥️
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?
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.
Laugh out loud He is so funny. Like homer simpson and patrick star rolled into one.
As much as I love mabel her voice gets kinda annoying after a while, but I could listen to soos forever.
He's so adorable and caused both, heartwarming and heartbreaking moments throughout the show.
Bonus points for his super cute relationship with Mabel.
He is so cute! My sister and I want a pet piggie because of this little guy! I wanna squeeze his adorable little face!
I used to think he was a spy, and that whenever he was off screen he was looking for the journals
He's so definitely the cutest character, but he can't beat bill and dipper
I love Stanley, but I adore Ford, I wish he had a bit more screen time but with the screen time he had he became one of my favorites in the Pine Tree Family.
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)
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.
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.
Pacifica was originally shown as the cliché popular blondie meant to be hated, but the show actually gave her character development and reason for being that way! I'm not gonna lie, I'm kinda a sucker for characters who are made to be an antagonist like this (not in a villain sense, but in a against the main character sense) but are revealed to have a reason that they're the way they are. Pacifica is def my favorite character.
She is the Draco Malfoy of gravity falls. They look the same, they are really mean until close to the end when we want to like them. And their families act the same
Ever since "Northwest Mansion Mystery", I've seen Pacifica in a whole new light. No longer is she the mean, antagonistic stereotype she was before. Now she is a great character, and I can't wait to see how the series develops her after this. I can't wait to see more Pacifica in Gravity Falls.
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.
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.
I don't know I just Love his craziness throughout the Show I don't know How To express my opinions online, I've Never Done it, but anyways, I just Love this character Very much
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.
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..
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.
He deserves to be higher on the list! he's funny and awesome! He has some of the BEST lines on the show! It's also obvious that he loves the kids and his feud with Ford is sad but funny sometimes. And in the last episode he's so awesome...
No way man! Stan may be hiding something, but if Dipper is a lot like Stan as he seems to be, then Dipper will find out, and boy will that be akward!
Whether you're talking about Stanley or Stanford, they're both already way higher on the list, so remove this.
Even though She dos t appear much, I reaally wishers She did, I know She dosnt do anything To the plot, I really loved her, She was nice and creative or something I don't know, but I do really Love this character
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."
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!
I LOVE Candy. She's such an amazing character, I hope that she will be in future Gravity Falls projects. We need her back.
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.
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.
I really really Love Giffany, She was also the first character To Show me the I don't know, at first she’s nice and caring, then you Get To know her shes insane I honestly was in Love with the episode She was in, I really Hope She returns,
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
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...
Why is the worst character in the show on this list? He's useless, and a total jerk. Wendy was too good for this loser.
I love his goth vibes if he was a real person I would date him he even is in a rock band he is just so cute.
The owner of my favorite line of all time "I HAVE THE ONLY KEY! Wrapped around my... well I wouldn't call it a neck exactly, wrapped around this little pocket of fat under ma' head? "
Hand that Rocks the Mabel, Little Dipper, Dreamscaperers, and Gideon Rises are all awesome. Thanks to Gideon.
That one psychopathic ten year old who is creepily cute
Hello y'all I'm voting for Hilary Clinton even though I'm a baby version of trump bye
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!
He had 5 minutes on one episode, and he's in the top 10 list laugh out loud
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.
Her and wendy have been friens forever, and her hair is so pretty
We barley got any of him, but we all know he is going to be a major character.
People calm down this was added before Ford
His name is Stanford aka Ford
Yess my favorite character
Razzle dazzle, friends! It's me, the Razz Dazzler! This is what my life has become!
The monsters thought Toby was one of them
This just in this arrow in my shoulder
Yeah this is just one huge undertale reference
Aww Soos your grandma is adorable her skin is so soft! MABEL! Quit Being creepy
My favorite side character
Lol. "I go vacuum my face now."
She is always so chill
Yes! Everyone says "oh the beavers don't count as a character" even though they are clearly characters without names because the talk (in a way) and made several appearaces! The beavers are just so CUTE!
Me:I love the beavers
My oly friend that loves gravity falls (not 2 b named): THAT DESERVES A HUG!
Dipper should get a Beaver they' re just so awesome and adorable
They love cavorting! That deserves a hug!
They don't count as a character.
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.
"This experience will forever scar Tad Strange" -Tad Strange (Weirdmaggedon Part 3)
"Hi guys, Tad's the name, and being normal is my game."
Haha it's so funny that they actually putted this here!
Why is this hammer squeaky?
Why is this here
I Love I Love How he’s serious then just Not care for a while then Go Back To being serious
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!?
Come on you gotta give this guys some credit
He traumatized Gourdy. What the hey?
