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!)

    The Gnomes 
"We'll never forget you, Mabel. Because we're gonna kidnap you."
— Jeff

The little men of the Gravity Falls forest.

    The Gravity Falls Gobblewonker 

The Gobblewonker is a legendary sea monster that is thought to live at the bottom of Lake Gravity Falls.

    The Mystery Shack Wax Statue Collection 
"We're cursed! Cursed to come to life whenever the moon is waxing!"
— Wax Sherlock Holmes

Voiced by: John Oliver (Sherlock Holmes), Coolio (himself), Larry King (himself)

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?"

Voiced by: Ken Jenkins and April Winchell

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...

    The Manotaurs 
"Not man enough? Not man enough!? I have three Y chromosomes, six Adam's apples, pecs on my abs, and fists for nipples!"
— Testosteraur

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.

    The Multi-Bear 
"This is foolish. Leave now or die!"

Voiced by: Alfred Molina

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."
— Tyrone

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.

    Quentin Trembley 
"The only thing we have to fear is gigantic, man eating spiders!"

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.

    Blendin Blandin 
"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 

Voiced by: Brian Bloom

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.

    The Summerween Trickster 

"Trick or treat or die."

Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

The Summerween Trickster is a large, light purple monster with a yellow-green jack-o-lantern mask.

    The Gremloblin 

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."

Voiced by John DiMaggio

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.

  • Achilles' Heel: The main power switch. Not only shuts down the entire system, but also releases those trapped.
  • Badass Mustache: The skull, again.
  • Berserk Button: Hates being tilted. As a pinball machine, his whole world is pinball, so he's not too happy when you mess with his only purpose.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: The cowboy skull.
  • Gold Tooth
  • Nice Hat: The cowboy hat worn by the 'talking skeleton guy'.
  • No Fair Cheating: Punishes tilting with sucking the offenders into the game and killing them.
  • Pinball
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Shout-Out: Ballway Games is most likely a Portmanteau of Bally Electronics and Midway Games, two popular pinball manufacturers in the late 80s to mid-90s, when pinball was at its peak in popularity.note  Tumbleweed Terror, in turn, is probably based on the similarly-themed and similarly-alliterated Cactus Canyon.
  • Vacuum Mouth

"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.

    Sev'ral Timez 
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.

    The Pterodactyl 
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.

    Bill Cipher 
"Beware of Bill, the most powerful and dangerous creature I've ever encountered. Whatever you do, never let him enter your mind".
-Journal Entry

Voiced by: Alex Hirsch

A mysterious demon summoned by Gideon in his efforts to take over the Mystery Shack.

    Xyler and Kraz

A short and hairy humanoid monster who tried to steal Dipper and Mabel's Summerween candy.

    The Mailbox 

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 
Voiced by: Mark Hamill Linda Cardellini
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.

    The Liliputtians 
Voiced by: Patton Oswalt (Franz), Jim Cummings (Pirate), John O'Hurley (Knight), Kevin Michael Richardson (Big Henry).

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.
