* AmbiguouslyJewish
* {{Badass}}:
** BadassAdorable
** BadassBookworm: Dana is often seen reading the journal or sketching pictures in a notepad. Despite that, she's very capable of putting up a fight. In "Headhunters", she has an epic sword fight with [[spoiler:wax Sherlock Holmes, and even tricks him to go outside so that the sun can melt him. This kid right here, outwitted Sherlock bleedin' Holmes.]]
** BadassNormal: Dana relies entirely on her wits and her resourcefulness in order to defeat foes and overcome obstacles.

* CityMouse: The county police like to call Dana "city girl".
* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: She often plays this to Marcus with varying degrees of success, although on some occasions she's just as goofy as he is.
* TheComicallySerious: Big time. Anytime she attempts to look smart and mature, expect it to be ruined by Marcus' or Salls' antics or her own hidden goofiness.
* ComingOfAgeStory: Several of Dana's experiences in Gravity Falls include learning about herself, defending a first crush, and boldly standing up for what is right, all elements of this trope.
* ConspiracyTheorist: Considering that she's in [[TownWithADarkSecret Gravity Falls]], she's more often than not is ProperlyParanoid.
* ControlFreak: Though not overbearing per se, her over attention to detail and occasional irritation with Marcus and Salls leads her to be insistent on her own direction of things.
* CoolLoser
* CrazyPrepared: Dana brings seventeen disposable cameras for a monster hunt. This is because she's GenreSavvy enough to realize that cameras keep getting destroyed or lost during monster hunts.

* IconicOutfit: Dana is always seen in a blue cap with a tree symbol on it.
* InsufferableGenius: Light example. She's the most intelligent of the main cast and NotSoAboveItAll (often) shows a lot more common sense. Her neurotics can be irritating however and she can be a bit prideful if over aware of her logic. Not to mention being an apt DeadpanSnarker.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: It comes from cynicism rather than any actual Jerkishness.
* KidDetective[=/=]KidHero
** OccultDetective

* BewareTheSillyOnes

* TheCutie
** CuteAndPsycho: Marcus is a mild version of this trope, but he's definitely a high-intensity-low-stability kind of boy. [[http://th04.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/f/2013/017/4/5/gravity_falls__dana_and_marcus_pines_by_stinkfly3-d5ru7w9.png Who else could wield an axe with a great big grin on his face?]]
