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):
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

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 played a huge role in gravity falls and did Something for someone he cared about or loved and even though dipstick is too young for Wendy, she should've chose him. Dipper really caught my eye while watching this series, in the episode Into the Bunker; I was proud (not in a weird way) of him for coming out to Wendy about his crush on her. Mabel is my no, 2 because she cause weirdmageddon and to be honest I can't blame her. Everyone on bill's wheel had made a deal with him, and if they hadn't in series I bet they will later on. Mabel's anger came from dipper's choice to stay with Ford. To be real, Dipper probably would've died if he stayed and I bet that's why she was upset. Also, in weirdmageddon, (2) Those flashbacks showed us why Mabel couldn't give up Dipper. They need each other and that was the message of the whole series which wouldn't be the same without dipper pines.

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 more.

One of the only cartoon characters that actually changes their clothes.

I love this girl!

She is an amazing girl - ElSherlock

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 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!

What a funny character - ElSherlock

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 more.

Bill cipher weakness is Be Defeated in Someone Mind
Bill cipher has Unstoppable Powers
Stanley dipper Mabel Ford soos Wendy vs Bill Cipher himself

I don't even like gravity falls anymore but I still respect Bill.

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

Shes cool that why shes ice - rachleblue

She is cool - ElSherlock

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

She is so cool!

6 Soos Ramirez Soos Ramirez

Soos is better than mabel I mean mabel is an annoying selfish brat

"Whoa dudes, Check this out" - Grobu

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

7 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.

She got better - ElSherlock

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.

8 Waddles Waddles

Waddles is god

Cute - ElSherlock

so cute

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

9 Ford Pines

Ford is a great character, he should have been in it more. - KMCCK

Ford is great

Pizza is good

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.

10 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!

As writer of the books, I deem you awesome Old man McGucket

The Contenders

11 Stan Pines

Ah yes, the least known of the triplets. Glad people like him so much

So good he’s on here twice. LOL - Misfire

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.

12 Candy Chiu Candy Chiu

"Death to my enemies! "

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! "

13 Grenda Grenda

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

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!

14 Giffany

This girl is probably what inspired Doki Doki Literature Club...

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.

Best girl - SakiLunaBNHA

15 Tambry Tambry

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

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.

16 Multi-Bear

Disco Girl, coming through... That girl is You!

Did you know head 4 is the least liked by the other heads?

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

He had 5 minutes on one episode, and he's in the top 10 list laugh out loud

17 Robbie Robbie

I really don't like Robbie because he's kinda a jerk

He's a jerk

I relate to him and he always makes me laugh and he’a just my favourite character

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.

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!

The beavers are so funny why everyone such a hater? GO BEAVERS!

Dipper should get a Beaver they' re just so awesome and adorable

They don't count as a character.

Come on you gotta give this guys some credit - Truly

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

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

He isn't My Fave Character,But I Do Like Him...I Liked Him UNTIL He Revealed His Face.

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!

"Hi guys, Tad's the name, and being normal is my game."

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

He's so relatable. Everyone likes bread.

Yeah, you're the light of my life, kid.

That one psychopathic ten year old who is creepily cute

25 Sheriff Blubs Sheriff Blubs

I love his mustache

I love him and deputy durland! I love how they're so obviously gay but it's never spoken out loud because it's a Disney channel show... heck, they almost kissed! - Organ

He's a sterotype, but it's not hurting anybody.

I think she is a beautiful old lady and I would love her to be my aunt or something.

May time baby have mercy on your soul!

He is an amazing character with lots of power yet a baby

He's just as cute as a normal baby

29 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.

Haha looser, you got beat at lasertag by two twelve year olds

Oh future dangit! Who misspelled his name!?

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

30 Rumble McSkirmish

I would totally roll him up and put him on my wall!

-holds up peace sign- because WINNERS DON'T LOSE!

He should go in the sonic video games!

WELL I am lena age 7 and if you say iam a litle girl you are stupid

31 Shandra Jimenez

I think her name is Sandra.

32 Shapeshifter

So, the Shapeshifter is honestly the scariest villain in Gravity Falls. Yes, Bill is pretty scary, but he's nearly always joking. The Shapeshifter, however, has a scarier vibe than Bill.
He's able to transform into anything he sees, and, like Dipper said, if he got loose, he could impersonate anyone, and, unlike Bill, he isn't limited to Gravity Falls. He could take the form of anyone in the entire world, and, unless he slips up, he can never be found.

Also, he's voiced by Mark Hamill, which, is awesome.

This guy should get some more love. He's a real trickster and a snakey bastard, and also somewhat entertaining. Whatever. I like him because the ability to change form is just awesome. And I will admit, I like his true form. - XX_HydraVirus9860_XX

I wonder how he'll react to Ford being back.

Can't believe everyone forgot about him. I hope he plays a major role in the fina episode! - yasirzxzxzx

35 Big Henry

He's big Henry, what more do I need to say?

He died it's so sad and he looks at a picture his daughter drew before he dies

He was a golf ball. He was in 1 minute of 1 episode. Yet you still got emotionally attached. #neverforget

I've seen every episode and don't remember a goldie

That guy has the most power in the whole show

HOW IS HE NOT NUMBER 1?! HE IS THE MOST EPIC CHARACTER EVER!. And he's kinda creepy.. Which is a plus!

45 Gorney

Did it move up on the list?

46 Celestabellebethabelle

I love her even though she was written horribly because the writers couldn't bother to give a reason behind her nastiness. Her design is amazing, I love her voice, and I honestly think that she's a better character than both the fans and the writers give her credit for. She's the very epitome of wasted potential in Gravity Falls.

I hated this thing...least favorite character

She's a fabulous jerk

The Unicorn that Wendy, Candy, Grenda, and Mabel met. Her name is fabulous first off, and she is just... just... fabulous

48 Thompson

Thompson! Thompson! Thompson!

The awkward fat dude that's just trying to fit in with the cool kids l love this dude especially with all the disgusting dares he takes such as licking a sponge in 'The Love God "

Why is he on the list?

He is actual clever.
He planned the splitting of his coat and the revealing of the snacks so the group could get back together in "Love God."

49 Tyrone

You could say that Tyrone is Dipper, therefore he shouldn't be on here. Butin a way, Tyrone became an advisor, his own person, and one of my favorite characters on the show. He's not the same, his personality DIPPERS (instead of differs. You see what I did there? )

Tyrone is totally cool.

It was so sad when he 'died'. The relationship between him and dipper was adorable - Organ

50 Gompers

Gompers is not what he seems. - Pokemonfan10

That goats hiding something. Smothering something. Evil goat.
