Characters: Gravity Falls Creatures And Other Oddities
to return to main character index.
Tropes shared by all entires;
- Eldritch Abomination: Some of the things here are more than a little abstract to look at.
- Monster of the Week: So far, each being on this page has only appeared and a role in one episode apiece, the exception being the Gnomes. However, Blendin Blandin is set to reappear, and according to Word of God, Bill Cipher will have a much more prominent role in the second season.

Monsters, Creatures, and Other Oddities (Beware of unmarked spoilers!)
"We'll never forget you, Mabel. Because we're gonna kidnap you."
The little men of the Gravity Falls forest.
The Gravity Falls Gobblewonker

The Mystery Shack Wax Statue Collection
"We're cursed! Cursed to come to life whenever the moon is waxing!"
— Wax Sherlock Holmes
The Wax figures are living wax sculptures that Grunkle Stan stole from a garage sale and used as attractions in the Mystery Shack.
Pa and Ma
"That's why we hate teenagers so much, don't we, honey?"
Pa and Ma were two ghosts who died at and haunted the Dusk 2 Dawn convenience store.
- Affably Evil: They're such a sweet, old couple that you could easily forget that they're also vengeful and sadistic spirits who inflict horrible punishments on the teenagers who broke into their haunting grounds.
- Berserk Button: They really don't like teenagers.
- Evil Old Folks
- Freudian Excuse: When they were alive, teenagers were a scourge on their store, always upsetting customers with their boom boxes and "disrespectful" short pants. Pa and Ma banned them, causing the teenagers to retaliate with their rap music. The lyrics to the music were so shocking that they were stricken down with double heart attacks. Thus, they hate teenagers and haunt the Dusk 2 Dawn.
- Ghostly Goals: To get revenge on teenagers.
- Happily Married
- Reality Warpers: Inside of the abandoned convenience store, they are basically omnipotent.
- Teens Are Monsters: They wholeheartedly believe this.
- Unholy Matrimony
- Wouldn't Hurt a Child: Teenagers, however, are fair game...
"Not man enough? Not man enough!? I have three Y chromosomes, six Adam's apples, pecs on my abs, and fists for nipples!"
Voiced by: Kevin Michael Richardson
(Leaderaur, Chutzpah), Keith Ferguson (Testosteuraur, Glurk), and Fred Tatasciore (Pituitaur)
A species of half man, half minotaur creatures who reside in the mountains. Emphasis on man.
"This is foolish. Leave now or die!"
The Multi-Bear is a magical beast that lives in the Multi-Bear's cave at the top of a high mountain.
The Photocopy Clones
"Dipper, please, this is you you're talking about."
Voiced by: Jason Ritter
The clones are copies of Dipper, made from Stan's Copy Machine.
- Adorkable: Given who they were cloned from, this is hardly surprising.
- Anti-Mutiny: What the clone Dippers try to do to Dipper in "Double Dipper." When #2 realizes that the original plan wasn't working, they laugh it off and share a soda instead.
- Body Horror: Paper Jam Dipper.
- Clone Degeneration: Due to the copier getting jammed, the fourth Dipper is a disturbing malformed creature.
- Clones Are People Too: All of the clones, save for the arm and the Paper Jam clone, are identical to Dipper in both appearance and personality. This means that they share the same motivations as Dipper, including their crush on Wendy. Also, the original Dipper shows legitimate concern when Tyrone melts away.
- Cloning Blues: Mostly averted. The clones are all for doing the original Dipper's dirty work and getting nothing in return until the original deviates from the plan. Tyrone even casually reminds the original that he can be destroyed in the case of a rebellion.
- Evil Twin: Zig Zagged. The clones are more than happy to help Dipper with his plan to woo Wendy... but when Dipper goes against the scheduled plan to dance with Wendy by talking to her in the hallway, the clones turn on him. They're not really evil though; they just decide to put Dipper out of the way by putting him in a closet and even making sure he's comfortable there with snacks and a coloring book.
- Four Is Death: The Paper Jam Clone is Clone number 4.
- Obsessed Are The List Makers: And how! In fact, the only reason why they attack Dipper is that he decided to deviate from the original plan.
- Our Clones Are Identical: Except the clones lack the tree graphic on their hat, which is where Dipper writes their identifying numbers. Also, Paper Jam Dipper is very different from the rest. On top of that, they look a little desaturated in color compared to the original Dipper.
- The Unintelligible: Paper Jam Dipper can only communicate in incoherent "NYANG NYANG NYANG" noises.
- Weaksauce Weakness: The clones can be destroyed with liquids, namely water and soda.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Clones 3 and 4 are never seen again after stealing Robbie's bike.
- You Are Number Six: Played straight with all the clones except Paper Jam Dipper and Number Two, who is called Tyrone.
Voiced by: Alex Hirsch
Sir Lord Quentin Trembley III, Esq., is a mysterious figure involved in the many riddles of Gravity Falls and America itself.
- Badass Mustache
- Big Good
- Bow Ties Are Cool
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer
- The Caligula: Elected by a landslide (as in the other candidates were literally buried by one), he proceded to ban pants, declare war on pancakes, and appoint babies to the Supreme Court. He was eventually deposed, replaced by William Henry Harrison, and all evidence of his term stricken from the national record. He ended up founding Gravity Falls, being deposed again and finally encasing himself in peanut brittle, in an attempt to live forever - which, amazingly enough, worked.
- Cloud Cuckoolander
- Cool Old Guy
- Creator Cameo: Yet another character voiced by Hirsch.
- Does Not Like Pancakes: The guy waged a war on them.
- Extreme Omnivore: Resigned by eating a salamander and jumping out the window.
- Genius Ditz: Despite being a Cloud Cuckoolander, he succeeded at putting himself in suspended animation with peanut brittle of all things and set up a treasure hunt so that he could be found 150 years later.
- Human Popsicle: Kept in suspended animation for 150 years, thanks to peanut brittle.
- Landslide Election: A literal one.
- Sealed Good in a Can
- The Southpaw
- The Wonka: Back in his president days. Deconstructed, too: his lack of sanity got him fired, despite being efficient.
"You shut your time mouth!"
Voiced by: Justin Roiland
Blendin Blandin is a time traveler who was sent to stop a series of time anomalies that were supposed to happen during the Mystery Fair.
- Adorkable: The beyond awkward photo on his ID card depicts him smiling an incredibly nervous, toothy smile, and he's sweating profusely.
- Alliterative Name
- Butt Monkey
- Gadget Watches: Blendin's watch also functions as a communicator and a cloaking device.
- Goggles Do Nothing
- Large Ham: "MEMORY WIPE!!!"
- Man Child: Slips into this territory when Dipper convinces him to take a break from his work and relax, and ride one of the rides at the fair. He's shown yelling jubilantly as he does so.
- He also takes it personally when Mabel doubts his claim to be a time traveler, and he's awfully quick to try to impress and convince two kids he's never met before.
- Nervous Wreck
- No Indoor Voice: Not surprising, considering that he's voiced by Justin Roiland.
- Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: Blendin is sent back to prevent a series of time anomalies that occurred only because Dipper and Mabel got their hands on his time machine.
- SpaceX: Or "Time X".
- We Will Meet Again: After the Pines inadvertently ruin his life, he swears temporal revenge. They write him off when they realize he hasn't changed the past already.
Rumble Mc Skirmish
"YOU TAKE THAT BACKKK!"
Rumble McSkirmish is a playable fighter in an arcade game called Fight Fighters. Dipper brought him into the real world by using the ultimate power code that he found on the lower left side of the arcade game.
- Ac CENT Upon The Wrong Syl LA Ble: Rumble talks like this all the time.
- Anti-Villain: He chases Robbie down through town, intending to kill him, but he only turns on Dipper when he realizes that he had been lead astray. It's obvious from his internal monologue that he was ashamed of this.
- Bilingual Bonus: The kanji on his back is actually the character for "Butt."
- "Blind Idiot" Translation: Half of his dialogue is this.
- Calling Your Attacks: "SUPER POWER NINJA TURBO NEO ULTRA HYPER MEGA MULTI ALPHA META EXTRA UBER PREFIX COMBO!!"
- Captain Ersatz/Shout-Out: He appears to be a merge of multiple Street Fighter characters. He has the blonde hair like Ken, the fighting stance similar to Ryu, Ken and the other Shotoclones, and an eyepatch like Sagat.
- Combat Pragmatist: As a parody of Streets of Rage or Final Fight, he's a fan of picking up objects from the street and swinging them at his enemies.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Beats the crap out of Dipper with an absurd amount of punches.
- Does Not Like Shoes
- Eyepatch of Power
- Giving Someone the Pointer Finger: And what a pointer finger it is.
If Robbie is not the last stage, then it must be...YOOOOOOOOOOU!
- The Great Politics Mess-Up: When talking to Dipper, he demands to be taken to the Soviet Union.
Dipper: That's gonna be difficult...for a number of reasons.
- Hyperactive Sprite: Mocked. Dipper runs into some frustration when he asks him to stand completely still, since of course, his Hyperactive Sprite is as still as he gets.
- Knight Templar
- Large Ham: Shouts most of his dialogue.
- Martial Arts Headband
- Muscles Are Meaningful: Caused much destruction with his techniques, and when Dipper finally landed a punch on him, it barely took away any of his health.
- Names to Run Away From Really Fast
- No Indoor Voice
- Nonstandard Character Design: His sprite design was created by Paul Robertson.
- Punny Name
- Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: One of his moves is a hundred hand slap.
- Walking Shirtless Scene
- Would Hurt a Child: Rumble was genuinely trying to kill Robbie, endangered Stan and Mabel by toppling the water tower, and beat up Dipper with a nearly lethal combo attack just because Dipper had lied to him.
- You Killed My Father: And not for the first time, apparently.
The Summerween Trickster
The Summerween Trickster is a large, light purple monster with a yellow-green jack-o-lantern mask.
- Berserk Button: Don't "lack Summerween spirit" near this guy. Don't throw candy in the trash, either.
- Child Eater: If Dipper, Mabel, Grenda and Candy fail to meet his candy quota for the night, he'll eat them.
- Dark Is Evil: His appearance is usually combined with the lights going out or some such.
- Death Seeker: Being made up of "Loser candy", he strongly desires to be eaten.
- Disproportionate Retribution: Threatens to kill Mabel and Dipper because they refused to give him candy. And of course, eating children because of the unwanted candy in the city.
- The Dreaded
- Eldritch Abomination
- Expy: Of Noh-Face from Spirited Away.
- Faux Affably Evil: At first. Calm, soft-spoken. Eats a child off-handedly.
- Freudian Excuse: The Summerween Trickster wants revenge for all of the discarded candy that no one liked. All he wanted was for someone to say that he tasted good.
- Guttural Growler: Quite, and his voice gets progressively worse the angrier he gets.
- I Got a Rock: As an amalgamation of rejected Halloween candy, he is more or less the manifestation of this trope.
- I'm a Humanitarian
- Knight of Cerebus: He's the first villain on the show to be played seriously, and has a rather sinister facade.
- Lean and Mean
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous
- Pulling Themselves Together
- Soft-Spoken Sadist
- Tears of Joy: When he finally finds someone (Soos) who thinks he tastes good, and cries tears of candy corn.
- The Trickster
- Villain Teleportation: He seemingly can appear anywhere.
- The Worm That Walks: He's made of candy that was discarded because no wanted to eat it.
- What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Played for laughs in "Summerween". Soos hits the Trickster and shatters him completely when he was about to kill the kids, and freaks out when he thought he accidentally hit a guy. After Soos eats the Trickster, the episode draws to a close with an Everybody Evil Laughs Ending as soon as it ends, Soos nonchalantly says "I ate a man alive tonight."
- Would Hurt a Child
- Your Costume Needs Work: Dipper's reaction to his presence at first.
An giant, rampaging beast, with the ability to show a person their worst nightmare.
Tumbleweed Terror Pinball Game
"Get ready to meet your maker, kids! My maker is
Ballway Games, in Redmond, Washington."
A pinball game with a Wild West
theme and a sentient, talking cowboy skull. When Soos gets the high score by tilting with Dipper and Mabel's help, the skull sucks them into the game.
"There are some who call me... Mermando! (Beat) This is because Mermando is my name."
Voiced by Matt Chapman
A young Latin merman who winds up trapped in Gravity Falls public pool. Luckily Mabel befriends him and helps break him out.
Voice by: Lance Bass, Alex Hirsch, Matt Chapman
A good looking, astonishingly dim Boy Band
made up of clones. Its members are Greggy C, Creggy G, Leggy P, Chubby Z, and Deep Chris.
A prehistoric beast, unleashed on Gravity Falls after millions of years of being suspended in tree sap.
- Badass Normal: Compared to the other villainous beasts, who had some element of the supernatural to them, it's just a regular "dinosaur".
- Expy: Very similar to Ridley, namely the design and stealing the lead girl's Morality Chain.
- Ptero Soarer: Looks like an unholy mixture of all stereotypes, down to the scaly skin, being called a "dinosaur", having eagle-like hindlimbs, leathery wings, having a Pteranodon crest alongside rather mismatched teeth, making chicken-like nests and having zero to no body fat. Strangely enough, though, it walks quadrupedally, like a real pterosaur.
- Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Has rather unrealistic slit pupils and make lizardy noises.
"Beware of Bill, the most powerful and dangerous creature I've ever encountered. Whatever you do, never let him enter your mind".
Voiced by: Alex Hirsch
A mysterious demon summoned by Gideon in his efforts to take over the Mystery Shack.
- Affably Evil / Faux Affably Evil: Does make a few jabs and attacks at the characters, but overall seems rather polite, and even compliments the characters on how smart they are when they fight and defeat him but at the same time, pleasantries aside he's still incredibly twisted and psychotic. Really it's easier to say he's both.
- Ax-Crazy: Oh hell yes. He pulls out the teeth from a deer's mouth For the Evulz. Or to purposefully freak Gideon out. Or because he thought it was funny. Or all three.
- Beware the Silly Ones: He's a rather silly-looking pyramid thing that wouldn't look out of place on a neon sign, and has a laid back jokey personality. He's also every bit as dangerous as his reputation suggests, and can make your life hell if you get him angry enough.
- Bowties Are Cool: It can turn into a TV screen!
- Card-Carrying Villain: Or maybe a Card-Carrying Chaotic Neutral. Hard to say right now, but everything he does is without remorse and even with insane glee nonetheless.
- Chekhov's Gunman: Bill appears as a Freeze-Frame Bonus at the very end of the opening theme.
- Creator Cameo: Yet another character voiced by Alex Hirsch.
- Deal with the Devil: He agrees to help Gideon take over the Mystery Shack in exchange for help with his secret plan. He acts as the devil in this scenario, and the way he phrases the deal implies that Gideon wouldn't agree to help if he knew what was in store for him. However, Mabel's interference keeps Cipher from upholding his end of the bargain, so Gideon gets off with no consequences.
- Dragon with an Agenda: He only followed Gideon's orders because they match up with his goals (which have something to do with Stan Pines), and because Gideon agreed to help him with whatever his goals are in return.
- The Dreaded: The journal describes him as the single most dangerous creature in Gravity Falls. Even Gideon is scared of him, though this seems to fade pretty quickly.
- Dream Walker: This is partially implied to be the reason he's able to warp reality to his whims, as he's only shown to use his powers within a black-and-white environment, of which the characters are seen blinking as if they've just woken up after he's done talking to Gideon, and why he's so powerful in Stan's dreamscape.
- Eldritch Abomination: Very quirky and affable, but still very alien and incomprehensible. Even his moniker as a "demon" is rather superficial.
- Evil Laugh
- Eye Beams: One of his powers.
- Graceful Loser: Averted when his Faux Affably Evil goes straight out of the window when his plans are ruined, but then played straight when he decides to let the kids go for their effort.
- Great Gazoo
- Hidden Agenda Villain: It's clear that he's planning something, but it's not clear what.
- High-Pressure Emotion: He Turns Red when he's angry enough.
- Knight of Cerebus: Introduced in what's being considered the darkest and most terrifying episode of the series to date, despite his Laughably Evil personality and oddball design. Within his first few seconds onscreen, he telekinetically yanks out a deer's teeth and gives them to Gideon. At least he undoes it a moment later, though it's still rather horrifying.
- Large Ham/Evil Is Hammy: While he may just be a villain by circumstance (it's fairly unclear at this point), he's a hell of a ham either way.
- Laughably Evil
- Light Is Not Good: Bill's always accompanied by a bright glow. It's also based on the Eye of Providence and The Illuminati's solar/eye symbolism.
- Louis Cypher
- Meaningful Name: It is no coincidence that the most mysterious entity of the show (and possibly the one with the answer to all the mysteries) has almost the same name as one of the most famous unsolved cipher codes in US history. "Bill" might also refer to a banknote, as Cipher's body shape closely resembles the Eye of Providence found on the US dollar bill. Last but not least, a possible reference to Louis Cypher.
- The Mad Hatter:
Gideon: You're insane!
- Manipulative Bastard: Plays the group like a fiddle to find the door to Stan's safe-code memory.
- Nice Hat
- Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: Literally!
- No Indoor Voice: He seems to shout everything he says not unlike the Williams Street interpretation of Brak. Somehow, he manages to shout even louder when he loses his cool.
- The Omniscient: Strongly implied.
- Our Demons Are Different: He's referred to as a demon on two separate occasions, but is about as far from stereotypical demonic forces as you can get. Notably he's yet to refer to himself as a demon, so perhaps only time will tell what his origins really are.
- Playing with Fire: Although a blue fire, as seen on the picture.
- Reality Warper: Is pretty near Omnipotent.
- Screwy Squirrel
- Sigil Spam: Look closely in past episodes. Pictures of a triangle with an eye are seen in otherwise random places.
- Spell My Name with an S: His name is often mispelled Bill Cypher, even though his name is spelled out on his page in Dipper's journal.
- The Trickster
- Vagueness Is Coming: His warning as he leaves, a mysterious darkness that will change everything they care about.
- Villainous Breakdown: The group's continuous attempts to foil his plans do not make him happy. So he reaches a Unstoppable Rage level and Turns Red. This is then subverted when he calms down, compliments the group of their ingenuity, gives some cryptic warning and vanishes.
- Villain Teleportation
- Voice of the Legion: When he wants to emphasize something.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: Takes the form of Soos to trick the twins into showing him the combination to the safe.
- We Will Meet Again: He says this to Dipper and company at the end of their first meeting.
- Worthy Opponent: He admires Dipper and company's wit, and for such, lets them live.
- You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry
Xyler and Kraz
Two 80's style boys from the movie Dream Boy High. Mabel appears to have a crush on them. They were brought to life by Mabel's imagination.
A short and hairy humanoid monster who tried to steal Dipper and Mabel's Summerween candy.
A mysterious mailbox in the middle of the forest that can answer any questions ask.
A resident in Gravity Falls who for some reason is always facing left. He turns out to be a robot controlled by tiny aliens
- Driven to Suicide: When Lefy's secret is revealed, the aliens controlling him commit suicide by swallowing capsules that vaporize them instantly.
- Genre Savvy: When Dipper tried to trick Lefty into turning around, he saw through all of his attempts to get him to turn in a direction other than left.
- Mobile-Suit Human: Turns out to be one controlled by a bunch of tiny aliens.
- Robotic Reveal
- Walking Spoiler
A tall and skinny creature that hides behind people.
The Tooth Monster
"You have disturbed my slumber. Enter my mouth, children! ENTER YOUR DESTINY!"
— The Tooth Monster
The origin of a giant human tooth found on the shores of the Gravity Falls Lake. Is in fact a giant floating head with an island growing on it, which sleeps in the lake and goes after Mabel and Dipper when they "disturb its slumber."
A mutant cow on display at the Gravity Falls Petting Zoo. Has four extra legs due to the pollution caused by a mud flap factory's runoff.
The Zombie Horde
A group of zombies summoned by Dipper, while trying to demonstrate the journal's power.
Experiment 210/The Shape Shifter
So many new forms to take...
A monstrous shape-changer discovered in the author's underground bunker.
- Alien Blood: Again, it's green.
- Continuity Cavalcade: While looking through Dipper's journal, he takes on the forms of the Gremloblin, a gnome, and the Hide-Behind.
- Eldritch Abomination: His design is very alien and non-standard even for this show, and that's not including the bizarre forms he takes. Probably the worst of these is the unholy mesh of Dipper and Mabel he used to pursue them.
- Expy: He's a PG version of The Thing.
- Gone Horribly Right: Implied due to its status as an "experiment," but notes left by the author of the journal say he eventually became too powerful to control.
- Kill It with Ice: Not killed, per se; but since an iron cage couldn't hold him, the gang has to resort to putting him in a cryogenic stasis pod the Author prepared for him once he got too powerful. Ironic, considering his possible inspiration.
- Knight of Cerebus: More so than even Bill. Not only is he not Played for Laughs, but it's implied that he's willing to kill the group.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: Trapped in cryostasis before the group came to him. He's put back inside this can at the end of the episode.
- Spot the Imposter: Impersonates Wendy to confuse Dipper, but doesn't have a good enough knowledge of their relationship to pull it off.
- Would Hurt a Child: Went after the twins after transforming them into a deformed fusion of themselves.
- Vagueness Is Coming: His final words to Dipper about prying too deep into Gravity Falls lore before he's put in stasis.
- Voluntary Shapeshifter: His main ability.
Tiny creatures who inhabit the local mini-golf course at "Ye Olde Discount Putt Hutt", and fight over whose hole is the best.
- Ax-Crazy: The little bastards are a tad bit unhinged.
- Enemy Mine: They finally realize a reason to temporarily band together and end their rivalry when Mabel eats the sticker she promised she'd give them — namely, cutting Mabel open and retrieving the sticker from her insides.
- By the end of the episode, they've bonded over their shared love of directing golf balls, and perform a big choreographed musical number about it for Sergei... WHO MUST NEVER LEAVE.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Big Henry.
- Large Ham: All of them.
- Lilliputians: Obviously.
- Non-Standard Character Design: Although they all have large multicolored and pockmarked heads (like golf balls, of course), the Knight of Weiners Castle has a squinty, exaggerated face with stubble and long brown hair, while Big Henry is a Top-Heavy Guy with huge arms.
- Painting the Frost on Windows: They are the ones who control the balls at the mini-golf course.
- Punny Name: They're lilliputians who live in a mini-golf course. Lampshaded by Franz that the name makes more sense when written down.
- Serious Business: Who runs the most fun hole to play on the entire course? It's apparently worth getting into tiny adorable fist-fights every night and threatening to murder children and ex-Soviet golfing instructors, just for any semblance of approval.
- The Theme Park Version: Many of the Lilliputtians derive their costumes from the national stereotypes of their holes' motifs — Franz and the other Lillputtians inside the windmill are dressed in traditional Dutch clothing and have blond bowlcuts, whereas the Lilliputtians from the miniature Eiffel Tower sport berets, striped shirts, and moustaches. Justified, as they do live in a theme park.
