Best Gravity Falls Characters

The Top Ten

1 Dipper Pines Dipper Pines Dipper Pines is the main character in Gravity Falls which the show aired from 2012 to 2016. He is the brother of Mabel Pines

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.

Why Dipper is awesome (In every episode):
SEASON 1
1. Risked his life to save his sister from a bunch of gnomes.
2. Was willing to sacrifice himself just for the thrill of mysteries.
3. Showed how amazing his observation skills are and fought off Sherlock Holmes's wax figure.
4. Broke up with Gideon for Mabel so she didn't have to.
5. Sacrificed his dignity to save his friends (And Robbie).
6. Endured the trials of the manotaurs,took down a multi-bear THEN refused to kill him, stood up to the manotaurs' leader, and grew a chest hair.
7. Outsmarted HIMSELF.
8. Exposed Pacifica's true past to her face without even a slight sense of guilt.
9. Gave up the slight chance of dating Wendy and gave Mabel her pet pig Waddles.
10. Punched Rumble in the face like a boss, endured his punches, and "defeated" Rumble.
11. Gave Mabel her extra millimeter.
12. Admitted to Wendy he went trick or treating with his sister and wasn't ashamed of it.
13. ...more

19. Fighting past his wants and desires, he stayed vigilant and kept sight of what was most important. Saving gravity falls and getting Mabel back to the real world. - dipperpinesfangirl618

Dipper is kinda like the person I feel like I am when I'm out in the real world. Don't get me wrong if Mabel and me were put side by side there would be an nuclear explosion of kittens and rainbows. But I feel like Dipper is my favorite because I can relate to that awkwardness that he has. And at his age I was 50 shades of awkward, but weird and random like Mabel. Another plus to Dipper is that he is so adorkable! He's very smart, but he's a little guy that's really trying to be taken seriously. And I could happily say that I do. Cheers to you Dipper Pines. MY favorite character

YEAAH LEZZZ GOOO MA BOI PINE TREE!
... I promise I’m not bill.

2 Mabel Pines 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 moved to the ...read more.

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!

Saw this once and her personality makes this really funny. She makes you wonder what their parents are like. Typic teen looking for love.

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. - Hajj

NOW let's face the TRUTH.Mabel does more than Dipper such as when they were investigating how the Northwest relative, "Nathaniel Northwest" did not find Gravity Falls.She was the one who was the angel at the Library.True she is a silly good but that's what makes her cool. - AnnaRoblox

3 Grunkle Stan Grunkle Stan 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.

Grunkle Stan is by far the funniest and best overall!

Behind the Multi- Bear, seriously? How do you not love someone who scams people like stan does?!

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

By Far the character was really funny and had many funny moments I also like his brother too since they're both awesome sure Grune Stan is a criminal but still really funny..!

4 Bill Cipher 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 the ultimate being who is hiding... well everything! He dresses up with a bow tie, top hat and cane and is 2 dimensional. He's funny and laid back and in complete control of almost every thing! Gravity Falls is a mystery and Bill Cipher himself is the mystery. He can tell the future, present and past and has and is doing something BIG! Bill Cipher only leaves clues and has most likely written in the journals himself. Now remember... THE WORLD IS AN ILLUSION THE UNIVERSE IS A HOLOGRAM, BUY GOLD, BYE!

The Reality is an illusion, not the world. If you love Bill you gotta be right about his awesomeness - Murrkip

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! - Murrkip

Honestly, Bill should be in the top ten. He's one of the most interesting and intriguing characters on the show. In fact, he's pretty much the base of the plot line, with all the mystery and stuff. You can mock me all you want, but Bill Cipher is one of my favorite characters.

He's so annoying a dumb! I hate him!

5 Wendy Corduroy Wendy Corduroy

Wendys the best character! She is amazing! I wanna be her in real life! - sophialombardo

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

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.

So hot! id totally date her!

6 Soos Ramirez Soos Ramirez

Laugh out loud He is so funny. Like homer simpson and patrick star rolled into one.

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? - maddyparrot22

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. - Hajj

"Your face is good. I'm a Soos! " I laugh every time I think of it.

7 Waddles

Waddles is the cutest thing ever! :D I love him so much because he is so fat I love him! My favorite part is in the SummerWeen Episode and he is dressed as a buisness men! :) WADDLES

Waddles is best pig.

He's so definitely the cutest character, but he can't beat bill and dipper

One word adorable pig oh wait that’s two words

8 Pacifica Northwest 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.

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.

Just showing her reaction to a bell ringing explained EVERYTHING. Her past, why she acts the way she does, everything about her character turned around in one episode.

She may be mean and stupid and stuff, but she seems to look like a perfect queen bee, not like other queen bees in other cartoon series.

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.

9 Old Man McGucket

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.

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

10 Ford Pines

Ford is admittedly very likable in D, D, and More D, the episode that made him my favorite character. But he has the potential to be an even greater person with something called character development. He needs truckloads of it.

Ford, best character Alex Hirsch has ever created. When he was almost killed in Dipper And Mabel vs. The Future I almost died. And when he "Died" in Weirdmageddon Part 1, I died. Hands down, Ford is the most fabulous character.

Ford is the character everyone has been longing for since the beginning. We should at least put him higher because of his own character. The only mystery left is to see if Bill will make him alive again so we would all know more about him.

Bitch make this adorable owl higher

The Contenders

11 Candy Chiu Candy Chiu

I agree! In "Sock Opera" she says "I must steal him from Mabel." and "WAIT! CANDY STILL LOVES YOU! "

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."

"We are criminals! We will cut you! "

12 Grenda 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!

I love her dramatically deep voice and her flirting style! best by far!

I wanna put any bad character in a head lock and make them feel pain.

13 Stan Pines

Wow, good for Stan! He's liked so much he made it TWICE on the list!

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 is old and grumpy but he's hilarious and he loves dipper and mabel

In all the places is this list, why did you decide to put Stan in HERE?! - RainbowArtist191

14 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.

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...

He's obsession with trying to get Wendy to take him back is so funny - SugarcoatShadowBolt

Dude there was spray paint on his wall and do u know what it said? It said die dipper die I mean really Robbie?

16 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.

Five nights at Giffany's

She's kinda creepy. I loves that episode.

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

18 Tambry Tambry

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

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 would like more of a main role of her.

Her and wendy have been friens forever, and her hair is so pretty

This just in this arrow in my shoulder

Oh toby your so weird

"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.

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!

30 Blendin Blandon

HE IS MY BAEE! 1! 11 Blendin-in my opinion- should have a higher place. As shown in Weirdmageddon 1, Blendin brings the time police to Bill's castle. After Bill kills the time baby and time police Blendin goes back... somewhere.. and who knows what happened after that?! Point is Blendin might become even more of a main character making him 10x more fabulous then he already is.

Oh future dangit! Who misspelled his name!?

Billdin (like my parody name? ) in Mabel and dipper vs the future

Well, here we have Blendin Blenjamin Blandin, from the year 207012!
