Best Gravity Falls Theories

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.

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

Confirmed in Season 2. - aarond9010

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

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

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.

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.

You mean when Ford pushed him while fighting.

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 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

The Contenders

11 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!

12 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.

Good theory, Bill's return would be so cool

Lets take his death message backwards: "A-X-O-L-T My time has come to burn. I involverade the anciennitet power that I may return! " that's what Bill says backwards so that's My favorite theory

13 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

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?

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

17 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...

18 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.

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☺
