* SweaterGirl: She always uses long-sleeved sweaters with a big cawl neck and has a different sweater design for each episode. In the final episode, she made sweaters for everyone in the group.

* AllTakeAndNoGive: This, along with [[InnocentlyInsensitive Innocent Insensitivity]], is her FatalFlaw. Mabel has a problem with selfishness and often takes advantage of her brother's love to try to get him to put aside his own wishes and goals and do what she wants, usually without realizing (until [[HeelRealization far later]], if at all) that what she's doing is manipulative or damaging. This is subverted in "Sock Opera" [[spoiler:by sacrificing her puppet show performance to defeat Bill]], but she needed to be prompted to even realize she'd overstepped any boundaries in the first place and even then suffered AesopAmnesia immediately afterwards and never really grew out of it in contrast with Ford who actually did.

* IfICantHaveYou: Downplayed platonic variation. [[spoiler:In "Dipper and Mabel Vs. The Future", when Dipper accepts Ford's offer of apprenticeship requiring him to stay in Gravity Falls over the school year while Mabel returns home, Mabel '''flips''' and tries to freeze time in Gravity Falls to keep the future from coming and Dipper from leaving her, albeit she didn't seem to want it permanently. It fails, because the offer is revealed to have been a trick from Bill to get his hands on the world-ending {{MacGuffin}} in Dipper's possession.]]



* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: Why she bullies Dipper in "Little Dipper". His slightly cocky one-liner after winning leads her to see this as him rubbing his victories in her face, and she responds by picking on him about being 1 millimeter shorter than her for the rest of the episode, joking that it was proof she was evolving into the "Alpha Twin".

* BigGood: With [[spoiler: Ford incapacitated, and turned into a backscratcher,]] Dipper rallies the people of Gravity Falls to take the fight to Bill.



* HiddenDepths:
** Despite putting on a prideful facade in front of those who tease him, Dipper is actually riddled with low self-esteem.
** He can play the sousaphone.

* LivingEmotionalCrutch: Towards Mabel, somewhat unhealthy so. [[spoiler: When Dipper takes up Ford's offer to be his apprentice and stay in Gravity Falls while his sister goes back home, Mabel '''freaks out'''. The possibility of them being separated is one of her motivations for trying to prevent the future by ''freezing time'' (she fails, but it results in TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt instead).]]

** At the end of it all, despite the series best attempts at giving her CharacterDevelopment, Mabel hardly learned ''anything'' regarding her selfishness because of her constant AesopAmnesia especially since the events where Mabel gave the Rift to Bill and [[IfICantHaveYou her reasons for doing it is never brought up]][[note]]Aside from giving Dipper her blessing regarding apprenticeship but it's never really elaborated upon and Dipper is shown accompanying her instead of staying with Ford[[/note]]. In other words, Mabel is ''still'' in her AllTakeAndNoGive relationship with her brother and in the future, there is a very high risk the she could potentially cause a big falling out against Dipper out of her own selfishness much like Stan and Ford.

* ProperlyParanoid: Usually a straight example, but this trope is notably played with in "Tourist Trapped." Dipper quickly identified Mabel's boyfriend as a zombie based on his general appearance. [[spoiler: He was wrong and right; he wasn't a zombie, but he was a mystical creature. Or rather, creatures; they were a group of gnomes.]]

* ShipTease: In "Northwest Mansion Noir", Dipper bonds with Pacifica Northwest while hunting a ghost. Midway through the episode, they share a hug and then awkwardly back off from each other. After that point, Pacifica takes Dipper's opinion of her very seriously. When Dipper turns on her over the discovery of the ghost's intentions, his scathing words are enough to convince her to turn her life around, standing up to her abusive parents and taking charge of her life in the process. [[spoiler: Journal 3's entry that Dipper wrote about that night has him mention she looks "okay" in an evening dress and that she smells like champagne and flowers, the latter information [[{{BelligerentSexualTension}} crossed out]]. The last sentence, also crossed out, is him wondering if there was some vibe going on. He even draws a picture of Pacifica in the same style as a drawing he made of Wendy while he chronicled the events of "Into The Bunker."]]

** Downplayed in "Roadside Attraction." Despite proclaiming that she has a plan to set up Candy and Dipper (clearly going against her lesson from "The Love God") she doesn't much act on this plan besides making them share a seat and her forgetting the previous aesop is neither the driving force nor the focus of the conflict that occurs.

** [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] briefly by Dipper in "Dungeons, Dungeons, and More Dungeons." Despite Mabel honestly believing her quips are funny and charming, many of the jokes she and Stan make at Dipper's expense have actually hurt him deeply over the series.

When Mabel laughs and says he should just give [[spoiler:Ford]] time with that, Dipper simply turns his head away from her in disappointment. Mabel's face shows she realizes how hurtful what she's said actually is, the most she can do is give a little "you got me there" and turn over in bed.

His efforts to bring Ford back left behind an unstable dimensional rift, every subsequent event related to that MacGuffin slowly created tension between Dipper and Mabel, especially with Dipper spending more time with Ford. Mabel's broken emotional state over the idea of being apart from Dipper made her vulnerable to Bill Cipher's manipulations. It doesn't help that Stan disregarded every warning against using the portal, and now everyone, including himself has to suffer the consequences of his foolishness. He also agitated the first signs of an emotional rift between Mabel and Dipper by joining with and at times even encouraging Mabel to pick on Dipper for the sake of "humorous" jokes.
