Best Gravity Falls Theories

DipperPines
Here is a list of the greatest and most likely true theories regarding that of the hit Disney Channel and Disney show 'Gravity Falls'.

The Top Ten

1 Stanley Pines

Stan's twin brother Stanley is probably my favorite theory. It just makes a lot of sense. For proof check out the video 'Decoded #1: Stan's Secret Twin' on YouTube. - DipperPines

And he actually exists! Not What He Seems was THE BEST episode in Gravity Falls! - Minecraftcrazy530

My all time favorite theory.

Yay, it was confirmed!

2 The Nuclear Apocalypse

Okay.. This one is just really cool and freaky at the same time. This theory states that sometime in the future, a nuclear mishap will lead to the downfall of Gravity Falls. I personally believe very strongly in it. - DipperPines

This one makes so much sense! I like it just a bit more than the Stanley theory - NerdGirl

Almost correct but is

Close, I TOOK OVER GRAVITY FALLS

3 Stanley Wrote the Journals

I think that Bill cypher is the bottom of everything- he wrote the journals conjured Stanley and Stan and then made dipper and mabel into this total mess- in which my theory is that Dipper's and Mabel's parents signed them up on a riddle camp and this is the riddle...

Not What He Seems confirmed this, although it don't think his name is Stanley, I think that Stan faked his death in order to write the journals, and the one being Stan at the shack is Stanley. - aarond9010

Again with Stanley... For more information on this theory, search this video on YouTube: 'Decoded #1: Stan's Secret Twin' - DipperPines

Aw remember the good ol' days when everyone thought Ford was Stanley? But really Stan is Stanley and Ford is Stanford. Get it? :P

4 Soos Knows More Than We Thought

We already know that Soos knows about the journals because Dipper told him in one of the shorts between Season 1 and Season 2 and he entered Stan's mind to defeat Bill in Dreamscaperers, but what if he knows about the secret societies and more? - DipperPines

The future is coming to all us dude

Soos knows LESS than what he seems

DUDE...

5 Mabel's Future Disappearance

This is a theory you probably didn't really hear before. It's really interesting because this theory has various movie references that support it. Search for it on YouTube, Google, bing etc. for the explanation. - DipperPines

Alex Hirsch confirmed in Season 2 on character will not make it alive. - aarond9010

This will most likely happen very soon

Mabel is the sister we always wanted, twill be shame is if she was to disappear... but she told me she was just going to have a sleepover at her friend's house...

6 Mabel's Paranormal Twin

This... doesn't make any sense. The bottle is an animation error, the picture was a goof, and... that's all the evidence people have. I can't make a long comment because there isn't anything to comment on.

There's a theory that In the episode Double Dipper Mabel made a copy of herself on the printer and named it Lebam Mabel backwards.

Some believe Mabel has another twin, but in another dimension. Her/His name is Lebam. (Mabel Backwards) - DipperPines

7 Robbie Is a Zombie

When dipper reads the description for zombies in tourist trapped, it fits robbie; 'pale skin', 'bad attitude', and he kind just acts like one if you re-watch the series.

There is a lot of information backing this up, such as Robbie's sweatshirt, his band, the minivan in The Inconveniencing, etc. - DipperPines

OOOR... Robbie is actually a teenager... He has a lot more personality than a conman zombie, he can love, hate and process other human like emotions and characteristics.

8 Stan's Tattoo

Well it is possible I mean their is little Easter eggs and little codes. Such as their code.

You mean when Ford pushed him while fighting.

Stan's tattoo is actually a burn mark when Stanley pushed him when they were fighting. I also think that these comments are out of date.

This theory confirmed. #TaleOfTwoStans

9 Carla is Gideon's mom

So obviously Bud (when he picked up Carla) became fatter, changed from blonde to brown hair AND went from a hippy to a Texan? Theory busted...

When you think about it, it's actually possible...

By far my favorite. I may or may not have voted for another one before I saw this one though.

What if Carla is the news woman but she changed her identity..?!

10 Bill Cipher is Still Alive

This is actually very likely, knowing Bill's power. I think that Bill Cipher survived and created a stone replica of himself to trick everyone so that they wouldn't be expecting his next weirdness invasion.

I think that since Stanley got his memory back, there's still a small part of Bill Cipher in there and he's waiting for when he's strong enough to leave.

They should make season 3 when bill comes for revenge - legendary

Here is his backwards message backwards... A-X-O-L-O-T-L my time has come to burn, I envoke the ancient powers that I may return!

The Newcomers

? Mabel is Transgender

Mabel is always being girly, obsessed with Several Timez, boy crazed, and has a sticker and glitter collection. She tries so hard to be girly. She might be trying so hard that everyone thinks she was born a girl. Everyone thinks it’s Dipper who’s trans, but he’s just acting like a normal teenage boy.

? What is Bill’s Backstory

The Contenders

11 There Is More Than One Secret Society

I don't know if this one has been confirmed or not, but there may very well be two societies in Gravity Falls: The Royal Order of the Holy Mackerel and The BlindEye Society. - DipperPines

It's so real because stan has a picture of the royal order of the holy mackrele

12 Pacifica Works With Bill

If Pacifica was working with Bill, why would she be trying to stop him in the final episode?

That makes sense, actually. The llama si facing backwards, which probably means Mabel's former enemy, Pacifica.

That makes no sense

Just look at Bills wheel. Look at the llama. Then look at the llama on one of Mabels sweaters. They are both facing opposite ways. Who knows? This might mean something

13 Dipper Is Possessed by Bill Still

In the episode with the shape shifting monster it said that dippers final form would be him sort of frozen with his hands in the air much like how he looked when he was turned to wood in northwest mansion, so maybe that was his final form and Bill took over his body then.

Also Alex Hirsch said that there was some1 going to die in ss2. Maybe that's Dipper. Maybe he had already taken his last form in the Northwest mansion like what the Shapeshifter said and Bill had already taken his body since then when he was turned into wood.

Dipper would never brush off an upcoming apocalypse, but I know a certain triangle who would!

DAS CREEPY

14 Dipper is a transgender

Definitely my favorite theory, and there is a lot of evidence to support it. Dipper and Mabel are nearly identical, so I think they were born as identical twins, both girls. This could also explain why dipper only goes by his nickname, and gets upset when he feels like he's not manly enough.

I totally agree with this. Quick Question though: now that we know that Dipper's real name is Mason, what was/is his female name?

Madison?

15 Bill's Only Weakness

I think that his eye is the weakness. when Dipper tried to punch him in the eye then Bill pushed him away because he didn't want him to know his weakness.

His weakness is Gold... This one is hard to explain. Look this one up also to find answers, - DipperPines

16 Bill Cipher Statue

It means something big very big

V 3 Comments
17 There's a Journal Number 4

Considering the 3 were burned, and dipper still has no clue how to defeat bill, another journal would make sense.

No one ever said that there are only 3 journals.

18 Soos Will Die In Season 2

I agree maybe the handyman knew too much, also "you guys are smart, especially the fat one".

It's a Disney show, what is wrong with you guys?

There is no season two as you see it shows the endowing on weirdmagedon three

No one died...

19 Pacifica's Memories Were Wiped

If you remember the episode with the memory wiping machine in the background you can see a canister that say's pacifica's memory's! This explains why she has blonde hair while
Her "parents" don't there is another theory that goes the same but instead is buddy's wife

Remember on Northwest mansion there is a banner on the wall with Bill on it and people sre praying to him. well I think that they knew Bill and that there memories were whipped from him. because onweird meggedon the Northwest family clearly did not know him.

I bet pacifica use to be nice it then the socity of the blind eye erased her memories and she became mean. 😏

You are so right me and my friends are doing a YouTube channel called theorie hunters - - -

20 Mabel is the Key

In every episode that Mabel fell in love, every character wanted her as their "queen" or their "leader". Maybe if Mabel is the key, every magical creature knows and that's why they want her as their queen.

Her sweater in not what he seems is a key. Hm

Think. She decoded almost evereything in Irrational Treasure, she's an official congresswoman, she solved Dipper's math problem in the Time Travelers Pig, and there was even an episode called Boss Mabel. She is the center of evereything in the series (and not because she wants to be)

It means Mabel is the key to the portal☺

21 The Portal Leads to Hell

Alex said it leads to the kind of places Bill and his pals like to hang out. (Does Bill like to hang out in hell)

Considering how the Author (Spoiler) destroys the portal, and refers to it as dangers. And the countless references of chanting, summoning circles, posessions, etc. I'm sure Alex Hirsch is willing to go as far as hell and demons spilling into our realm.

Yep this theory is right. Bills world pours into ours in the latest episode. And his friends,

Lol

22 Gravity Falls was supposed to happen differently

If you think about it...

So, things would have never happened in Gravity Falls if it weren't for time travel. Soos would have never worked at the mystery shack. Wendy wouldn't be friends with Dipper. Toby Determined would have been successful. Soos would never love his birthday. Robbie might have turned out different. Mabel wouldn't know how to open the vending machine. Here's why.

When Dipper and Mabel go back in time to the past Gravity Falls, they leave behind things. Traces of them.

Toby doesn't become successful because the twins told him that his dreams went nowhere. Perhaps if that hadn't happened, Toby would have become a Broadway performer.

Soos wouldn't have worked at the Mystery Shack. He would have never returned the screwdriver. He also would never have met the genius (Mabel) who tag ht him how to open the vending machine. It gets confusing here. I'll go back to this later.

Wendy wouldn't have made good friends with Dipper. When does ...more

23 Gideon Works with the Government Agents

They both have the same USA flag tag on them and its strange that Gideon has all these powers and he's only a kid.

Stop watching bad Vailskibum videos
Plus he talks like he's foaming from the mouth

24 Dipper and Mabel Will Drift Apart

Dipper and Mabel will fight in a upcoming episode they will probably have a similar thing that happened with the Stan twins happen to them.

25 Bill's Twin

There is a theory that Bill has a Twin brother, either a square, circle or upside down triangle!

It might be a girl called Jill Cipher.

It could be a girl named Jill Cipher!

26 Bill Cipher Wheel

It's called the zodiac in weirdmaggedon part 3

27 Stan's Secret Brother

Yup

28 Mayor's Upcoming Death

There are several codes in the Gravity Falls book stating the mayor doesn't have much time to live. Another code being that Bud Gleeful wants to become mayor.
My theory is that Bud will eventually become the mayor of Gravity Falls, which is of course not good, at all.

I think that the mayor is the one that was supposed to die.

This one's true just watched a new episode

29 McGucket Knows More Than Dipper and Mabel Think

Uh proved already

30 The Father Knows About the Journals

He might know because he knows about Stanley so he must know Stanford and the journals

How does Gideon know about the journals.
Also,the father of Gideon hypnotize the mom.in accident?

31 Robbie Was Possessed

Robbie was a cute little kid until one point were he turns almost demonish. It was shown when Mabel delivers him pasta to his bedroom, he had photos of him in his hallway. Also, in the episode where Mabel and Dipper time travel back to find out why Soos hates birthdays, Robbie looks like a mini him, even though I'm the hallway pictures, he looked much different.
Maybe it was an animation error but he must have a big part in the plot to be on Bill's wheel.

32 The Blind Eye Helps

The blind eye is against bill cipher.Have you ever noticed on the page the blind eye there's a eye with a line crossing it.

33 Stanley and Stanf are the same people

This doesn't even make any sense...

That is so wrong

34 Bill has trapped Mabel and dipper in a world where he keeps winning in a loop

Cause bill can make world like when he had trapped Mabel

35 Stanford will die at age 92.

Bill did once say to Ford "Don't have a heart attack, you aren't 92 yet," when they first met. As Bill knows pretty much everything, Ford will probably die at age 92 from a heart attack.

36 Bill is Gompers

Whenever Bill posses someone their eyes get dilated. Gompers eyes are dilated. Also when Dipper first finds the journal Gompers tries to bite it. Bill wanted the journals gone.

It wont be after they sprinkled the magical spell he would not be able to get near the shack

37 Gideon is his parents' dad.

There is a theory that Gideon is his mom and dad's dad. The evidence:Gideon's parents are afraid of him. Reason:Gideon got trapped in the portal and it made him younger after having kids. That's why he wants the journals to go into the portal, find the thing that made him young, and get old again.

No, wait- THIS is stupidity at its finest.

AND the fact he has white hair

38 Robbie's Secret Clone

This is a well thought theory because in Gideon Rises he is almost at 2 places at once

39 Dipper Will Die In Season 2

THERE NOT GOING TO HAVE A MAIN CHARACTER DIE IT WOULD RUIN THE SERIES!

NO WAY IT'S A KIDS SHOW!

Maybe

40 Stan Will Die In Season 2

It have to be Stanley that dies, remember when Stanford meets Bill, Bill says, "Don't have a heart attack you're not 92 yet."
ruthscat2

41 Pacifica Was Adopted

Well I mean Dipper even pointed out that her blonde hair is "probably fake." She most likely had it dyed.

It kind of makes sense. I mean, she doesn't look anything like her so called "parents" and she has a different hair color then them.

42 Everyone But Mabel Will Perish

I agree with the previous comment, which states that only one of the Pines will survives. So it's either Stanley, Stanford, Mabel, or Dipper.

As I see, Stanley Pines was trapped and made into gold by Bill Cipher, so it isn't likely for him to survive and I don't think Bill Cipher will resurrect him back.

As for Stanford Pines, I think he is gonna die because
(1). In the "Take Back The Falls" flag, there's no symbol of Stan,
(2). All of his models have been "murdered", mostly by fire. Maybe he will die with the same cause,
(3). He mentioned about his death somewhere in Season 2, and
(4). He's just too old for this.

Do you know that Alex Hirsch said that there will be no Season 3? Well, it probably is because Dipper dies. Dipper will also protect her sister (Mabel) from any kinds of danger, and I think that one of the scenes of the last episode will be Dipper saving Mabel from her death, sacrificing his own life. That leaves us with Mabel surviving and ...more

In weirdmaggedon part 1, the end code states "GAME IS OVER, AND I WON. NOW IT'S TIME TO START THE FUN. I ALWAYS LOVE CORRUPTING LIVES. NOW LET'S SEE WHICH PINES SURVIVES" which is saying only one will survive. and so far, Mabel is the only one without a death foreshadow.

So you know the events of Weirdmaggedon, yet you can't even get Stan and Ford's names right?
