* The title. At first glance, an ordinary PunBasedTitle meant for nothing more than a little ParentalBonus. Then you take a closer look at the plot: tensions between two old rivals - superpowers, if you will - spill into a proxy war on a faraway land. At least one of these powers actively manipulates the land's natives through local grudges, while possessing an incomplete (at best) understanding of [[BlueAndOrangeMorality their cultures and customs]]. Thing spin out of control, (potential) bloodshed ensues, and the superpowers eventually withdraw in horror, having gained more or less nothing...

* So what would happened if Mabel didn't took the Rift by accident and Dipper and Ford managed to seal the Rift? Well assuming that Ford drove Stanley and his employees away from his home and Dipper stays with Ford as his apprentice, the Pines twins would have been torn apart from each other. Mabel would have fallen into depression because of Dipper leaving her, Stanley would have probably been arrested in a maximum security prison due to a failed scamming attempt and Ford would have made Dipper into a one-dimensional research obsessed student as mentioned above. In other words, had the Rift sealing goes exactly as planned, ''Gravity Falls'' would have ended on a [[BittersweetEnding bittersweet note]]; The Rift is sealed and Bill will never invade Gravity Falls but the bonds and relationships between the Pines family has been broken apart. Mabel's foolishness actually saved her family from being torn apart.

* Ford offering Dipper his apprenticeship might be a great offer, until you realize [[NoSocialSkills the]] [[IWorkAlone type of person Ford is]]. If he goes in with the deal and drive both Mabel and Stan[[note]]And by extension, Soos and Wendy. After all, Ford wouldn't probably want them in his house would he.[[/note]] away from his life, then Dipper would have had nobody in his new home to restrain his obsession with research and with Ford's teachings on him, could easily turn Dipper from someone who could balance between knowledge and friendship, to a robot whose research in the only thing he wants to do in his life, driving away any remaining friends who wanted to approach him. After all, what Ford did not realize is that Dipper, for all his obsession with his journals and research, still treasures his family and friends and most certainly never saw Mabel as someone who is "suffocating" own potential.

** The worst thing that Stan did in the Love God? "I EAT KIDS," which while dangerous was an accident and certainly not a federal crime. The twins did sneak into the concert and steal Love God's potions, but they were moving too fast for anyone apart from Love God to catch.

* Could be a coincidence, but if you look closely, Creator/EdgarAllenPoe is the only wax-man who openly ignores Holmes (during the "Clap sarcastically" bit). Which is only right - Poe created C. Augustus Dupin, the ''original'' supergenius private detective, without whom there would ''be'' no Holmes.

* At first, Mabel going into a ''month-long'' HeroicBSOD over a pig might seem a bit much even for her... until you remember the guy running the contest meant for those pigs to be ''eaten''. Mabel having ''at least'' seven or eight do-overs' worth of memories with Waddles, a HeroicBSOD suddenly looks like an entirely appropriate reaction.

* Why 2012? Because in 2012, there was panic about the [[spoiler:'end of the world' because the Maya calender ended there]].

* Bill Cipher is a sort of dream demon who exists on a sort of mental plane or dreamscape [[spoiler: explaining why everything goes black and white and characters are seen 'waking up' after talking to him]]. In addition to examples of breaking the fourth wall, what better way to imprint on our subconscious, and therefore our minds, that to appear in every single episode, with a number of tropers unaware of his presence? [[spoiler: freeze-framebonus in that his page and an imprint appear in the opening credits, aside from various symbols or images depicting him litered around various episodes)]]

* A meta one- at the end of Dipper and Mabel vs. The Future, when [[spoiler:Bill starts Weirdmageddon]] , the imagery was so horrifying to this troper that it triggered temporary insanity, eventually causing her to never watch it again due to PTSD.

Now, the show may have a fandom of mostly teens and even some adults, but remember how it was originally marketed to Disney Channel audiences-usually preteens and '''children'''. Now think of all the NightmareFuel in the show. It's entirely possible that a young child, maybe '''7-10 years old''',
