Beware of unmarked spoilers!

    open/close all folders 

  • Monster of the Week: Most creatures only have a major role in a single episode, and then having cameos later. Some of them avert this, though, becoming recurring adversaries or major characters.
  • Our Monsters Are Weird: You have your average creatures, with basis in mythology and folklore, and then you have things that make you wonder if the designers had a few nips before getting their pencils.
  • Back for the Finale: In the final episode, the gnomes, manotauars, lilliputtians, Multibear, Rumble McSkirmish, Sev'ral Timez, and Celestebellebethabelle are found in the Mystery Shack hiding from Weirdmageddon. Octavia is among those waving goodbye to the twins at the very end, and during the credits we see what became of President Quentin Trembley and Dipper Clone 3 and 4.

    The Gnomes
Click here to see Dark Jeff 

Jeff: We'll never forget you, Mabel. Because we're gonna kidnap you.

The little men of the Gravity Falls forest.

  • Adorable Evil Minions: Let's face it: the gnomes are pretty cute.
  • Aerith and Bob: Parodied. The five gnomes who make up Norman are named Jeff, Carson, Jason, Steve, and Shmebulock.
  • Affably Evil: Jeff is very friendly and personable, but still tries to force a twelve-year old girl to marry thousands without regret. He was also planning on eating Steve if he didn't get any pie.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: According to Lost Legends, the other gnomes don't think too highly of Shmebulock due to his Pokémon Speak condition.
  • And Now You Must Marry Me: The gnomes kidnap Mabel and try to force her into marry all of them so that she can become their new queen.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Despite being a far bigger threat than normal after turning into Dark Jeff during Legend of the Gnome Gemulets, Jeff still winds up falling into this territory after being defeated and stripped of his powers. He is then overshadowed by the much more evil and much more powerful Gremularth.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: The second half of Legend of the Gnome Gemulets sees the entire gnome kingdom fall under the influence of Dark Jeff.
  • Cephalothorax: They have some body besides their head and limbs, but it's so small that their beards obscure it from the front.
  • Chekhov's Army: They make a return in the first season finale to help the Pine Twins stop Gideon. Unfortunately, Gideon turns them against Dipper and Mabel. They also return in Weirdmageddon as some of the survivors living with Stanley in the Mystery Shack. They don't really do much in particular, but Stanley gets a ... heart-to-heart talk with Shmebulock.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: They can form together to make a Gnome giant!
  • Decapitated Army: Once Jeff is blasted off into the horizon, the gnomes are utterly without direction. One can even be heard saying "Orders! I need orders!"
  • Friendly Enemy: Despite their first encounter with the gnomes going badly, the twins don't seem to hold much of a grudge against them. They go to them for help in "Gideon Rises", and Mabel even toys with the idea of inviting them to their thirteenth birthday party.
    Mabel: Where do we stand with the gnomes again?
  • Generation Xerox: In a flashback, the Author is shown meeting Shmebulock Senior, who looks nearly identical to his son.
  • Hidden Depths: In Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets, Shmebulock reads philosophical books.
  • Hugh Mann: Their "Norman" disguise.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: They did pose a bit of a challenge for the twins during the pilot (though they were still highly comedic), but after that they fall squarely into this territory. In fact, given their Friendly Enemy relationship with Dipper and Mabel throughout the show, it's sometimes unclear whether they're even supposed to still be villains. Jeff eventually does turn into quite the imposing villain during Legend of the Gnome Gemulets after tricking the twins into stealing the titular gemulets from the Beasts and allowing him to turn into Dark Jeff, but even then he eventually finds himself stripped of his powers a few levels later and usurped by the far more evil Gremularth. He even helps the twins in their fight against the monstrous being, and afterward goes back to being on friendly terms with in.
  • The Leader: Jeff is apparently the only one capable of giving orders to the other gnomes; the second he's incapacitated they fall apart and scatter. Legend of the Gnome Gemulets reveals that he assumed his role as leader after their queen was eaten by a raccoon, and the game quickly makes it clear that the other gnomes have been thoroughly unimpressed with his leadership.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: The normally pathetic Jeff turns out to be a rather imposing threat after turning into Dark Jeff during Legend of the Gnome Gemulets. In addition to be being physically imposing in this form, he effortlessly manages to take over the entire town.
  • Lilliputians: Commonly referred to as "little men."
  • Mars Needs Women: G-rated version: Gnomes wanted Mabel to become their queen by marriage.
  • One-Winged Angel: The Dark Jeff image on the right is the form Jeff takes after absorbing the combined power of the magical gemulets. He uses this form to try and take over the town.
  • Our Gnomes Are Weirder: For starters, they vomit rainbows. Jeff bathes in a tub of squirrels, although when he claims it's "a gnome thing", it's implied he's lying. Their cameo in "Society of the Blind Eye" implies that they have cannibalistic tendencies. Though this might also have just been Jeff.
  • Pointy-Haired Boss: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets reveals that the Gnome Kingdom has fallen into disarray as a result of Jeff's incompetence as a leader.
  • Pokémon Speak: Shmebulock can only say his own name. Assuming that's even his name at all. Given how incongruous it is with all the other gnomes who have fairly common names it might just be a word he's stuck saying. In the video game, he speaks in a coded language after the player returns his books. Gravity Falls: Lost Legends reveals this was because a dark warlock inflicted a Curse of Babel upon him.
    Jeff: Is Shmebulock all you can say?
    Shmebulock: (Looks sad) Shmebulock.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets reveals that Jeff has been stalking Pacifica and considers making her his queen.
  • Starter Villain: The first antagonists encountered in the show.
  • Time Abyss: Shmebulock states in Gravity Falls: Lost Legends that he was cursed to only say his own name "eons" ago, and speaks of the once-a-millennia exception as something that's happened multiple times.
  • Totem Pole Trench: Their Norman disguise.
  • Treacherous Quest Giver: In Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets Jeff talks Dipper and Mabel into recovering the Gemulets, claiming they are ancient gnome treasures. But after all four are delivered, it is revealed that Jeff was lying, and tricked the twins because wanted he wanted their power without getting his hands dirty.
  • We Will Meet Again: Makes a threat to this effect when he declares at the end of the pilot: "I'll get you back for this!" It never pays off in the show proper (in fact, the Pines had to go and meet them when they thought the Gnomes could help fight Gideon), but he does make a decent effort at getting revenge in Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Questionably, it's leaf blowers. Gideon uses a high-pitched whistle to take them all down in the first season finale.
  • Yandere: "Mabel, marry us before we do something crazy!"
  • Young and in Charge: Jeff appears younger than the other gnomes, and may be the leader due to this. The other gnomes seems somewhat senile or even feral in comparison. That being said, near the end of Legend of the Gnome Gemulets, he says that he's undergoing something of a mid-life crisis, and specifically refers to himself as being 500 years old.

    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
Wax Sherlock Holmes: "We're cursed! Cursed to come to life whenever the moon is waxing!"

The Wax figures are living wax sculptures that Grunkle Stan stole from a garage sale and used as attractions in the Mystery Shack.

  • Affably Evil: Wax Larry King.
  • As Himself: Both the Coolio and Larry King wax figures actually are actually voiced by the real Coolio and Larry King. Due in part to this, some of the lines given to Larry King were written just to see if he'd say them.
  • An Axe to Grind: Lizzie Borden, of course.
  • Badass Mustache: Oddly enough, Wax Sherlock Holmes has one, considering that virtually all depictions of Holmes have him without any facial hair. Dr. Watson was the one with the mustache.
  • Back for the Finale: Wax Larry King's disembodied head has a cameo in the final episode - and he's still stuck inside the duct. At least until he becomes the top of a flagpole.
  • The Brute: Wax Genghis Khan and Wax Lizzie Borden, who doubles as a Dark Action Girl.
  • The Dark Chick: Wax Larry King.
  • The Dragon: Wax Coolio.
  • Ear Ache: Wax Larry King gets his ear bitten off by a rat, much to his annoyance.
  • The Evil Genius: Wax William Shakespeare.
  • Faux Affably Evil: A bunch of goofy wax statues... who happen to be vengeful potential murderers. Larry King, however, seems to be genuinely Affably Evil, even giving Mabel advice on clothing.
  • Hartman Hips: Wax Lizzie Borden.
  • Karma Houdini: Wax Larry King manages to escape into the vents of the Mystery Shack, albeit reduced to a severed head, and stays there until the Grand Finale.
  • The Leader: Wax Sherlock Holmes seems to be the leader of the wax figures.
  • Living Statues: They were brought to life by some sort of curse.
  • Monster of the Week: Of "Headhunters".
  • Posthumous Character: Wax Abraham Lincoln has melted by the time the wax museum is rediscovered. His wax is used to cast Wax Stan.
  • Recognition Failure: In-universe, no one seems to know who Wax Larry King is supposed to be— Stan calls him "Some kinda goblin man".
  • Revenge: After Stan locked them away, they wait ten years just to seek vengeance on him. When Soos finds them, they come to life once again and attempt to murder Stan, but accidentally decapitate the wax replica of him.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: They were locked away after Stan shut down the wax museum until Soos stumbled onto them years later.
  • Sole Survivor: Wax Larry King is the only wax figure who is still alive (his head, anyway).
  • Weaksauce Weakness: They can be melted quite easily. By easily, we mean "getting hit with electric candle" or "being exposed to direct sunlight for more than a second".
  • Would Hurt a Child: Kill them, actually.

    Pa and Ma Duskerton
"That's why we hate teenagers so much, don't we, honey?"

Voiced by: Ken Jenkins and April Winchell

The ghosts of an old married couple who ran and died in the now-abandoned 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.
  • Domain Holder: Inside of the abandoned convenience store, they're basically omnipotent and can warp reality inside the store as much as they please.
  • Evil Old Folks: They're a couple of sadistic old bats, at least towards teenagers.
  • 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 (by their standards) 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: Even in death, as it turns into an Unholy Matrimony.
  • Monster of the Week: Of "The Inconveniencing".
  • Teens Are Monsters: They wholeheartedly believe this. When they were alive, they banned teenagers from their store, and as ghosts they'll actively torture any teenager who dares to break into the store.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: They actively torment teenagers (and possibly try to kill them), but are perfectly friendly to anyone even a single year younger than what's considered a "teen".

    The Manotaurs
Voiced by: Kevin Michael Richardson (Leaderaur, Chutzpar), Keith Ferguson (Testosteuraur, Glurk), and Fred Tatasciore (Pituitaur)

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

A species of half man, half minotaur creatures who reside in the mountains. Emphasis on man.

  • Ambiguously Jewish: Chutzpar has sidelocks reminiscent of Orthodox Jews, what looks like a skull cap, and his name is a portmanteau of "chutzpah" (yiddish/Hebrew for audacity) and "par" (Hebrew for bull).
  • Anti-Villain: All things considered, they were genuinely helpful to Dipper before the Multi-Bear fiasco.
  • Dumb Muscle: Hoo boy, where to start?
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Chutzpar and the Multi-Bear become cool with each other during Weirdmageddon.
  • Jerk Jocks: A whole species of them.
  • Large and in Charge: Leaderaur towers over his Manotaur brethren, spews fire from his nostrils, and wears a Modesty Towel stitched out of several other towels.
  • A Load of Bull: Half bull, anyway.
  • Macho Masochism: The first lesson of manliness is the Pain Hole. Even full Manotaurs can't stand more than a few seconds with their hand in the hole.
  • Modesty Towel: The only thing the Manotaurs wear.
  • Monster of the Week: Of "Dipper vs. Manliness".
  • Monstrous Cannibalism: An elderly Manotaur is fed alive to Leaderaur.
  • Punny Names: All their names reference their overly masculine nature in some way, or their status.
  • Rated M for Manly: Brutally, relentlessly parodied.
  • A Real Man Is a Killer: They tell Dipper that he cannot become a man unless he kills the Multi-Bear.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: They act manly but some of the Manotaurs including Chutzpah liked wearing the cute sweaters Mabel knitted for them.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Manly Men to the Multi-Bear's Sensitive Guy.
  • Theme Naming: All their names end in -aur. Except for Beardy.
  • Testosterone Poisoning: Made of it.
  • Token Heroic Orc: Chutzpar, somewhat; unlike the other Manotaurs, he agrees right away to help Dipper and is rather supportive of him for most of the episode. He is also part of Stan's army in Weirdmageddon.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: To show their manly muscles. In Weirdmagaddon Mabel gives everyone one of her sweaters to wear, but Chutzpar keeps flexing through his.

    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.

  • Back for the Finale: He appears along with several other characters we haven't seen in a while at the end of "Weirdmageddon Part 2".
  • Bears Are Bad News: Subverted. It turns out the Multi-Bear isn't really a bad guy.
  • Beary Friendly: He's actually quite nice.
  • Commonality Connection: He's a huge fan of BABBA, the same girly pop band that made Dipper go on his quest for manliness. Upon bonding over this, Dipper can't find the will to hurt him.
  • Conjoined Twins: His body is like two bears joined at the shoulder that are both joined at the back with a third bear.
  • Eyepatch After Time Skip: The left eye of his main head was wounded in the aftermath of Weirdmageddon.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Accepts with dignity to be killed by Dipper - who decides to spare him when he learns that the Multi-Bear isn't a bad guy.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: He and Chutzpar become cool with each other during Weirdmageddon.
  • Good All Along: Dipper assumed the Manotaurs had a good reason to want him dead. They really, really didn't.
  • Good Is Not Soft: A cool (and sensitive) guy when you get to know him, but he warns Dipper that he's not afraid to kill anyone who comes after him first.
  • Multiple Head Case: The Multi-Bear has eight heads, but only one main intelligent head is capable of human speech. Their placement is very strange: two of its bodies have one head at their crotch and a head on each shoulder, the third body has a regularly-placed head, and the main head is on top.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: He has twelve limbs in total from his three different bodies.
  • Our Monsters Are Weird: A bear with the body of three bears stuck together and eight heads total. Even by the standards of the show, his appearance is like one of H. P. Lovecraft's rejected concepts. He's not malevolent, though.
  • Pop-Cultured Badass: The Multi-Bear loves listening to BABBA music, especially Disco Girl.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: The Manotaurs declared him their enemy because he engages in some activities not considered "manly", such as listening to BABBA.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Sensitive Guy to the Manotaurs' Manly Men.

    The Photocopy Clones
Tyrone: "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.

  • Affably Evil: When they rise up against Dipper Classic, they just lock him in the closet with snacks, showing no desire to actually hurt him.
  • All There in the Script: According to Gravity Falls: Journal 3, Dippers #3 and #4 go by Tracey and Quattro, respectively.
  • Alternative-Self Name-Change: Most of them go by their clone number. The first clone, while marked as #2, goes by Tyrone instead due to the implications of #2. Then there is Paper Jam Dipper.
  • Anti-Mutiny: The clone Dippers betray the real Dipper because he wanted to abandon their ridiculously detailed plan and just talk to Wendy directly. When #2 realizes that the original plan wasn't working, they laugh it off and share a soda instead.
  • Back for the Finale: Clones 3 and 4 disappear after stealing Robbie's bike, but the finale credits show that they're still around, camping out in the rain under a tent and wearing raincoats. They're likely Walking the Earth now and taking precautions not to accidentally melt themselves. And unlike the original Dipper, they seem to still be pining after Wendy.
  • Body Horror: Paper Jam Dipper is halfway between being paper and a solid object and folded in numerous places, making him so misshapen that he can't talk clearly and is glad to die.
  • Clone Degeneration: Due to the copier getting jammed, the fourth Dipper is a disturbing malformed creature.
  • Clones Are People, Too: Zig Zagged. On the one hand, Dipper has no problem melting the clones when they rebel, despite them explicitly not being a threat to his life, and the clones are simply annoyed at their own deaths. On the other hand, Dipper is upset when Tyrone is accidentally killed and according to Gravity Falls: Journal 3, he was actually willing to welcome #3 and #4 back, but he greeted them while holding a soda and they assumed he was going to attack them. He expresses concern that they might melt in the rain. (Ironically, they were planning to replay the whole "stuff in closet and replace him" plan.)
  • 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. Even this was far from being evil, though; they just decide to get Dipper out of the way by putting him in a closet and even make sure he's comfortable there with snacks and a coloring book.
  • Four Is Death: The Paper Jam Clone is the fourth clone made, though the clones made after him continue the numbering at 4.
  • Monster of the Week: Of "Double Dipper".
  • Nominal Importance: The first clone Dipper creates, and the most important one, chooses to call himself Tyrone (the name Dipper apparently always wanted). The rest are just referred to as Dipper 3, Paper-Jam Dipper, etc. 3 and 4, who survive, give themselves the names "Tracey" and "Quattro."
  • 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, and lack the bow tie he wore for the party.
  • The Unintelligible: Paper Jam Dipper can only communicate in incoherent "NYANG NYANG NYANG" noises.
  • Unfortunate Name: Dipper originally wanted to call the first clone, "Number Two." The clone himself realized this, and rejected the idea in favor of "Tyrone," a name Dipper had always wanted.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: The clones can be destroyed with liquids, namely water and soda.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Many fans wondered what happened to Number 3 and 4 since they were no destroyed on screen with the others. We find out in the final episode credits that they're now living out in the woods, wearing ponchos to protect themselves from the rain.
  • You Are Number 6: Played straight with all the clones except Paper Jam Dipper and Number Two, who is called Tyrone.

    Quentin Trembley

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.

  • Babies Make Everything Better: Averted. He appointed six babies to the Supreme Court, which contributed to his deposal and replacement.
  • Back for the Finale: Appears in the credit montage for the finale, where we see that Trembley is still exploring the forests of Gravity Falls on his horse. And still not wearing pants.
  • Badass Mustache
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: For all his eccentricities, Trembley is a brilliant man.
  • The Caligula: Elected by a landslide (as in the other candidates were literally buried by one), he proceeded 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: He waged war on pancakes.
  • The Cuckoo Lander Was Right: Peanut brittle really did make him immortal. The treasure hunt to find him is also designed so that only a silly person can unravel the clues, thus invoking this trope. And his warning about man-eating spiders becomes more sensible in "Roadside Attraction" when one such spider tries to eat Stan.
  • Cool Old Guy: Despite his apparent insanity, he helps Dipper and Mabel greatly, and finds a kindred spirit in the latter.
  • Creator Cameo: Yet another character voiced by Hirsch.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Never formally resigned but simply ate a salamander and jumped 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.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He was kicked out of office by the babies he hired to run the Supreme Court.
  • Human Popsicle: Kept in suspended animation for 150 years, thanks to peanut brittle.
  • Landslide Election: He literally won the presidential election by a landslide (that is, an actual landslide killed every other candidate).
  • Nice Guy: Cloud Cuckoolander tendencies aside he truly is a nice guy.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: One of the laws he passed while he was in office dictates that having physical ownership of a property deed (regardless of whether or not it's your name on the document) makes it and all under its domain yours. Finders-Keepers. Fair enough, but this law makes it possible for Gideon to steal the Mystery Shack during the first season finale.
  • Older Than He Looks: Since he was old enough to remember getting repeatedtly spanked with a paddle by George Washington (d. 1799), and of course his stint as a Human Popsicle, Trembley is over 213 years old by the summer of 2012.
  • Our Presidents Are Different: President Buffoon bordering on President Lunatic, hence why the United States did everything possible to erase him from the historical record.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Once freed, he is ultimately responsible for saving the day. To the United States government, he's more of a Sealed Loose Cannon.
  • Unperson: In an effort to cover up the embarrassment of Trembley's presidential career, the US government erased Trembley from history, filling in the historical hole with William Henry Harrison and village idiot Nathaniel Northwest.
  • Verbal Tic: Journal 3 reveals he yells "AMERICA" every three minutes like clockwork.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Disappears once again at the end of "Irrational Treasure", and isnt seen for the rest of the series, with no word on what his fate was. We finally find out in the final episode, where he gets a cameo in the credits, still roaming the forest seemingly no worse for wear.
  • The Wonka: Back in his president days. Deconstructed, too: his lack of sanity got him fired.

    Blendin Blandin
"You shut your time mouth!"

Voiced by: Justin Roiland

Blendin Blenjamin Blandin is a time traveler who was sent two hundred and sñeven thousand years into the past to stop a series of time anomalies that were supposed to happen during the Mystery Fair.

  • Alliterative Name: Blendin Blandin. It borders on a Repetitive Name.
  • Bald of Evil: Not a single hair on his head. Near the end of "Blendin's Game," however, the twins grant him some hair in addition to his job back.
  • Berserk Button: Making fun of his time abilities, not remembering his name, Wasteful Wishing are things that will make him raise his voice.
  • Butt-Monkey: From start to finish, he's an utter joke.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Zigzagged in "Blendin's Game". First he manages to escape from a previously unescapable prison, only to easily be caught once out. Afterwards he manages to keep up with the Pines twins in the death battle, only to foolishly blow the last contest by getting cocky. Really he's certainly toughened up in prison, but he's only this some of the time.
  • Deal with the Devil: Possessed by Bill so the latter could cause Weirdmageddon. Journal 3 reveals in a ciphered letter that after suffering mockery from the entire TPAES, Time Baby included, for losing Globnar to a pair of twelve-year olds, Bill came to him in a dream and promised him that the Time Baby would never bother him again.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Appears in the background of of the first three episodes. See Self-Fulfilling Prophecy below.
  • Foreshadowing: He is shown in the promo art for the second season with yellow eyes putting a finger to his mouth beside a bunch of monsters. This foreshadows Bill taking possession of him and ensuring his role in the apocalypse.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: His fellow Time Agents hate having to deal with him and the messes he makes, and they try their best to hurry their capture of the Twins if it means they can get away from guarding Blendin. Get's worse after Globnar, where their teasing him for losing to children (Including earning the nickname No-Frendin Blandin from the Time Baby himself) leads him to making a deal with Bill, and even worse after that, where he's declared an outlaw for his part in the whole debacle.
  • Gadget Watches: Blendin's watch also functions as a communicator and a cloaking device.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: He's wearing them constantly but it's unclear what they do. In "Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future", they hide the fact that he's under Bill Cipher's control.
  • Harmless Villain: Generally a mess. His attempts to correct this by training in prison fail miserably.
    Mabel: He's too sad to be a bad guy.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Blendin becomes a more decent person to the Mystery Twins when they own up to their mistake and get him his job back. He does come back claiming he owes Mabel a favor, only to reveal Bill Cipher possessed him. But he is the first to organize a plan to defeat Bill even though it goes horribly wrong.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: As Mabel pointed out, he's too pitiful to actually hate.
  • Jerkass: Childishly mocks one of his captors' mundane, but sweet wish to retire early. Dipper and Mabel helping him out indicates he will get better.
  • Karma Houdini: Blendin Blandin does not receive any punishment for making the deal with Bill Cipher nearing the end of the show. Instead, he just escapes from Weirdmageddon after Bill kills the Time Baby and Lolph.
    • Karma Houdini Warranty: However, "Journal 3", which was released months following the show's conclusion, reveals that Blendin has gone rogue because of said deal.
  • Large Ham: "MEMORY WIPE!!!"
  • Manchild:
    • 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.
    • His boasting costs him the Globnar.
  • Meaningful Name: He certainly blends in to his surroundings when time traveling.
  • Nervous Wreck: He's as timid and easily-upset as they get, and it's partially thanks to this he's so easily manipulated.
  • No Indoor Voice: Not surprising, considering that he's voiced by Justin Roiland. At one point during "Blendin's Game", Lolph mutes him mid-sentence to spare himself.
  • 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.
  • Space "X": Or "Time X".
  • Stable Time Loop: More of a Stable Time Möbius Strip. Blendin travels back in time to fix a bunch of paradoxes, but he can't find any. This leads him to get stressed out enough to take some time off, allowing Dipper to steal his time machine and the subsequent fight with Mabel causes the paradoxes that he was initially sent out to fix. Then Blendin is arrested and forced to clean up the paradoxes, which he does before past Blendin can find them, which leads to the beginning of the episode again.
  • Sole Survivor: He's seemingly the only member of the Time Paradox Avoidance Enforcement Squadron to survive their confrontation with Bill (besides Time Baby, who will regenerate eventually). Subverted, as TPAES Members only send Hard-Light Representations of themselves on dangerous missions, meaning that they were all still stationed in the future.
  • Strange Minds Think Alike: Agrees with Soos that using the Time Wish to make an infinite pizza is a good call.
  • Time Police: He's an agent of the Time Paradox Avoidance Enforcement Squadron, and his job is to correct time anomalies.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Gets possessed by Bill Cipher in "Dipper and Mabel vs the Future".
  • We Will Meet Again: After the Pines inadvertently ruin his life, he swears temporal revenge by keeping their parents from meeting. They write him off when they realize he hasn't changed the past already.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: In Weirdmageddon Part 1, Blendin escapes by using the time machine. Journal 3 reveals that his part in Weirdmageddon caused the TPAES to declare him an outlaw, and after some time hopping, he ultimately ended up in the 1800s, becoming a watch repairman after his Time Tape was destroyed.

    Time Baby
"I have a very important nap to get to, so let's make this quick."

Voiced by: Dave Wittenberg

A giant, time-devouring, baby-like monster currently frozen in Antarctica. For unknown reasons, he will wage a war in the distant future, while also leading human time travelers to fix timeline anomalies.

  • A Lighter Shade of Black: Time Baby tries (and fails) to stop Bill Cipher during "Weirdmageddon Part 1", as his cosmic antics could destroy the universe.
  • Always a Bigger Fish: A fairly unorthodox example. In Dipper's and Mabel's Guide to Mystery and Nonstop Fun!, Bill Cipher claims that Time Baby is an even worse entity than he is. That same book has a coded message that says that even in a future where he reigns supreme, Time Baby is "worried about Bill". As a sign of just how powerful Bill has become upon gaining physical form, he completely destroys Time Baby in "Weirdmageddon Part 1". Although he'll regenerate eventually.
  • Anti-Villain: Time Baby may be a tyrant, but everything he does is to protect the universe and ensure the space-time continuum works properly.
  • Bad Boss: Implied to be this. When Blendin Blandin failed his mission, he was afraid of the Time Baby and begged him for mercy.
  • Bad Future: In the distant future, Time Baby is the supreme ruler of Earth.
  • Big Brother Is Watching You: Since he has control over the universe in the future, this was inevitable. In the first few minutes of "Blendin's Game", there's even a poster in the background that says "Time Baby Is Watching You".
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Casually murders a random member of the audience for speaking out when he said "silence".
  • Enfante Terrible: He's a baby with incredible powers, and also a cruel autocrat.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Even a powerful tyrant like him will not stand for the destruction of the universe and the fabric of space-time. If anything, he exists to do the exact opposite.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Despite being a baby, he has a very deep voice.
  • Evil vs. Evil: Bill Cipher at least hates his guts (see Last of His Kind) - Dipper and Mabel's Guide to Mystery and Nonstop Fun! suggests that the feeling is mutual.
  • Eye Beams: His main form of attack.
  • From a Single Cell: Although Bill disintegrates him, a cryptogram states Time Baby will reform from component molecules, though it'll take a millennium.
  • Goo Goo Godlike: He is still a baby, yet he's also a brutal dictator with god-like powers.
  • Humanoid Abomination: He looks like a human baby, but he is gigantic, has incredible god-like powers, and is very intelligent. According to Bill, he's the last child of an extinct race of Time Giants.
  • Human Popsicle: He is currently frozen in Antarctica.
  • Last of His Kind: Is the last child born to a now extinct race of Time Giants.
  • Noble Demon: He promises a free time wish that can do literally anything (even, say, wipe him from existence) to anyone who wins Globnar, and follows through. Granted, even surviving Globnar is pretty tough. He also gave Blendin his job back after Dipper and Mabel asked him to, and accepted them giving their Time Wish to someone else.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: He's a ruthless dictator, but can't help but exhibit the habits of a baby. This includes sucking on his foot, or stubbornly whining when it's time to drink cosmic sand.
    Time Baby: I have a very important nap to get to, so let's make this quick.
  • Reality Warper: Can create Time Orbs capable of making any wish possible.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He's frozen in Antarctica for now. But in the future, global warming will free him, allowing him to conquer the world.
  • Time Police: He's the leader of the Time Paradox Avoidance Enforcement Squadron, who fix time anomalies and arrest violators of "the laws of space-time".
  • Time Travel: Given his title and and powers, he can probably travel through space and time.

    Rumble McSkirmish

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.

  • AcCENT upon the Wrong SylLABle: 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.
  • Always a Bigger Fish: After his initial appearance, he's on the recieving end of TWO of these, once by Giffany when she temporarily passes through his arcade machine and casually curbstomps him, and once again in the finale where he is once again out in the real world, and finds that all his fighting skills are useless against Bill Cipher.
  • Amidextrous Sprite: As befitting a 2D Fighting Game character pastiche, his eyepatch changes sides based on the direction he's facing. Lampshaded in Journal 3, where Dipper writes that he's going to complain to the game's developer about this animation error.
  • Back for the Finale: He came back out of his game thanks to Weirdmageddon.
  • Big "NO!": When he defeats Dipper, he is erased and sent back to the arcade machine. This is his reaction.
  • Bilingual Bonus: His victory pose mimics that of Akuma. However, unlike Akuma's kanji 天 (meaning Heaven), the kanji on Rumble's back is 屁 (meaning a fart, or alternatively something so worthless it's not worth considering - either interpretation satisfies the joke).
  • Black and White Insanity: From his perspective, you're either a good guy or a bad guy who deserves to be beaten to death and probably murdered somebody's father. As he's from a game where people do literally nothing but briefly yell then beat the crap out of each other, it's arguably Blue-and-Orange Morality as well.
  • Captain Ersatz: 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. He also takes elements from plenty of other fighting game characters as well, such as Terry Bogard, Liu Kang, and Jin Kazama.
    • His Arch-Enemy from his game, Dr. Karate, is a combined spoof of Guile and M. Bison.
  • Catchphrase: "Winners don't lose!"
  • Colony Drop: His Fist Punch Rain, which causes lots of closed fists to fall from the sky.
  • 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. Rumble himself is on the receiving end of one during his brief cameo in "Soos and the Real Girl".
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Just like Ryu and Ken.
  • Everything Makes a Mushroom: A pixelated fist-shaped mushroom cloud results from knocking out Dipper with his combo finisher.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Probably as a shout-out to another SF character, Sagat. Not surprisingly, Rumble's eyepatch switches eyes as he changes direction.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Despite Bill's Weirdmageddon being what brought him to life in his last appearance, meaning he'd disappear along with everything else, he still fights on the heroes' side and goes out with a thumbs up after Bill meets his end. (Though "death" may be an overstatement since he probably just went back to his arcade machine upon victory again.)
  • Finishing Move: Despite his game being mainly a Street Fighter parody, it apparently has these, as shown when he beats up Robbie and Dipper, complete with a "Finish Him!"
  • The Game Come to Life: He's the page picture for a reason, as the whole premise of "Fight Fighters" is Dipper releasing him from the arcade machine to be his bodyguard. Bill's Weirdmageddon somehow brings him to real life again.
  • 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.
  • Heel–Face Turn: During Weirdmageddon, he joins the fight against Bill, even though success will send him back into his game, and seems to have learned some humility as well.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Helps the heroes fight Bill Cipher, despite Cipher being the reason he'd come to life that time, meaning if they won, he'd fade away back to his game. He did anyway, and gives a thumbs up as he fades.
  • 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.
  • Intentional Engrish for Funny: Half of his dialogue is nonsense that's implied to be a result of his game being poorly translated in-universe.
  • Knight Templar: Absolutely convinced that Robbie, and later Dipper, are bad guys.
  • Large Ham: Shouts most of his dialogue.
  • Limited Animation: Played for Laughs. When Dipper flees up a tree, he tries to look up but can't because he doesn't have a "looking up" animation. He's then revealed to be a completely-flat 2D sprite when he falls over like a cardboard cutout while trying to do so.
  • Martial Arts Headband: A red one, like Ryu's.
  • Meaningful Name: Each part of his name is a reference to some sort of fighting. EVERY PART.
  • Meaningful Rename: After barely surviving Weirdmageddon, he renames himself Humble McSkirmish after learning there are opponents he can't beat on his own.
  • Medium Blending: All of his appearances in the episode are as a 16-bit sprite.
  • Monster of the Week: Of "Fight Fighters".
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: Caused much destruction with his techniques, and when Dipper finally landed a punch on him, despite uppercutting Rumble into the air it barely took away any of his health.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Both "Rumble" and "Skirmish" relate to brawls and fights, so you can see where this is going.
  • Nice Character, Mean Actor: In his game he is a warrior avenging the death of his father at the hands of the evil Dr. Karate. When brought to real life, he is a crazy Knight Templar who would have killed Robbie and Dipper.
  • No Indoor Voice: Constantly shouting.
  • No Peripheral Vision: Parodied. He can't look up because he has no looking up animation.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: His sprite design was created by Paul Robertson.
  • Overly Long Name: Journal 3 gives his full name as Rumble Fracas Melee Fisticuffs Slapfight McSkirmish.
  • Primary-Color Champion: It's subverted when he steps out of the machine. Otherwise, he is instantly remarkable for his blond hair, red bands and blue pants.
  • Punny Name: But also a Name to Run Away From Really Fast.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: One of his moves is a hundred hand slap.
  • Sealed Badass in a Can: He's usually just this when in the arcade machine. He only goes "evil" when Dipper lies to him.
  • Shotoclone: Once again, all part of his Captain Ersatz shtick.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Another similarly to Sagat is that he doesn't wear a typical karate gi, he goes bare-chested the entire time.
  • The Worf Effect: In his cameo in "Soos and the Real Girl", .GIFfany zaps him like he was nothing. This is the same guy who utterly trounced Dipper with his karate skills. Justified due to .GIFfany's total control over electronics, including Rumble's cabinet.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Challenges .GIFfany to a battle when she briefly crosses through his arcade cabinet. It doesn't end well for him.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Had no problem beating up Dipper with a nearly lethal combo attack just because Dipper had lied to him.
  • You Killed My Father: Dr. Karate. And not for the first time, apparently. He also immediately assumes that a dead father is involved in Dipper's feud with Robbie. Dipper just decides to go with it until Robbie almost gets killed.

    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 and the first monster to actually pose a serious threat to the twins' lives.

  • 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 flickering lights, and he gives the kids "until the last jack-o-melon is blown out" to get him his candy.
  • 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: Just look how terrified Soo's is to learn he's after the twins, while taking in account all the other supernatural creatures they've encountered and beaten.
  • Expy: In-Universe and out; his appearance and mask is based on No-Face from Spirited Away, while Dipper notes that he bears a striking resemblance to "Mr. Faceless" from one of Mabel's favorite anime movies, "The Cranky Girl Who Did Chores in Spirit Town".
  • 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.
  • Humanoid Abomination: A bunch of sapient, rejected Halloween candy that disguises itself as a humanoid being. He becomes more of a straight-up Eldritch Abomination after revealing his true identity.
  • I Got a Rock: As an amalgamation of rejected Halloween candy, he is more or less the manifestation of this trope.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: He is the embodiment of lousy candy that gets thrown out. All he ever wanted was for one person to find him delicious.
  • Hypocrite: He eats Gorney even though the kid doesn't lack Summerween Spirit just to make a point, although it could be because he was pissed off at the moment.
  • Knight of Cerebus: He's the first villain on the show to be played seriously, and has a rather sinister facade.
  • Lean and Mean: In his initial form, he's as thin as a broom handle.
  • Monster of the Week: Of "Summerween".
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: When it's time to start killing, he becomes less of a man and more of a spider.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Called a "Trickster", but he essentially relies on brute force while his threats and desires are incredibly simple and straight-forward.
  • Pulling Themselves Together: And they thought they had defeated him...
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: He speaks softly while taking delight into watching the kids' fear.
  • Tears of Joy: When he finally finds someone (Soos) who thinks he tastes good, and cries tears of candy corn.
  • To Serve Man: He has a taste for human children.
  • 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.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Would eat one, in fact.
  • Your Costume Needs Work: Dipper's reaction to his presence at first.

    The Gremloblin

A giant, rampaging beast, with the ability to show a person their worst nightmare.

  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Gets distracted by a novelty rubber singing fish for an indeterminate amount of time.
  • Generation Xerox: When his evil eye is turned on him, he sees his worst fear, himself in a mirror with glasses telling him that he's turned into his father.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: When his eye is turned on him he sees himself as his father, and he runs off screaming.
  • I Am Not My Father: The gremloblin's worst nightmare is that he becomes his father.
  • Mind Rape: If you look into his eyes, you see your worst nightmare. Two tourists are hospitalized due to him.
  • Monster of the Week: Of "Boss Mabel".
  • Nonhuman Humanoid Hybrid: Part gremlin, part goblin. Although in his dreams both his father and mother were also gremloblins, so it's possible the setting just has his species instead of gremlins or goblins.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: He can breath fire and grow demon wings completely out of nowhere.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Subverted. Mabel and Dipper think the Gremloblin is weak to water due to the awkward grammar the Author used in the journal, but it turns out it only makes him stronger.

    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.
    • The skull itself is likely one to Rudy from Fun House, both of them being animated talking heads in a pinball game. As if to solidify this, one of the awards on the Tumbleweed Terror board is "Crazy Steps", a notable feature on FunHouse.
  • Vacuum Mouth

"There are some who call me... Mermando! (Beat) This is because Mermando is my name."

Voiced by: Matt Chapman

A young Latino (likely Mexican) merman who winds up trapped in Gravity Falls public pool. Luckily Mabel befriends him and helps break him out.

  • Arranged Marriage: In "The Society of the Blind Eye", Mermando sends to Mabel the news of his arranged marriage to the queen of manatees, in order to prevent a revolt in the sea.
  • Artists Are Attractive: Mabel says "and you can play at least one chord on the guitar" to him after telling him that he's the coolest guy she's ever met.
  • Bathtub Mermaid: Mermando can't breathe without water, so Mabel ends up transporting him in a cooler.
  • Blue Blood: Implied. He seems to be a merman prince if he was able to get married to the manatee queen in order to prevent a revolt.
  • Dramatic Wind: A regular John Redcorn of the sea.
  • First Kiss: He was Mabel's.
  • Girl of the Week: Gender flipped. He's the "Guy of the week" for Mabel.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Mabel. The ship sank in "The Society of the Blind Eye" when Mermando was revealed to be getting married.
  • Large Ham: He has his moments.
  • Latin Lover: Although technically not Latin, apparently just being from a part of the ocean near Mexico, he has both the appearance and the voice. And Mabel was soon swooning over him.
  • Leitmotif: The guitar. Sometimes he even plays the music himself on a guitar he... somehow plucks out of the water.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Mabel sure thinks so.
  • Message in a Bottle: How he keeps in touch with Mabel after returning home.
  • Misunderstood Loner with a Heart of Gold: He's a "mysterious loner" only because he's hiding the fact that he's a merman from people.
  • Nice Guy: Really an all around nice guy, he is genuinely very grateful to all those who try and help him.
  • Our Mermaids Are Different: Among other things, he has, like... 17 hearts. "Horrifying, but true!"
  • Punny Name: From "Merman" which he is, and "ando", the termination of several latin names (Fernando, Armando, Rolando...)
  • There's No Place Like Home: All he wants is to return home to his family in the ocean.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Or rather, swimming.
  • Younger Than He Looks: His voice and little mustache hairs give the impression of a teenager. He's twelve. Mermen's voices change when they're three.

    Sev'ral Timez
Voice by: Lance Bass, Alex Hirsch, Matt Chapman

Chubby Z: "Yo. dawg! Who is this big, round, bright fool?"
'Mabel: "That, Chubby Z, is the sun."
Chubby Z: "That fool is making my eyes burn straight painful! I'm gonna stare that fool down."

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.

  • Back for the Finale: They take part in the assault on Bill's Fearamide by helping build the Shacktron, and then running on a treadmill (spurred on by a dangling piece of meat) to provide it with extra power.
  • Born in the Wrong Century: Downplayed: Dipper describes them as "the boy-band that came a decade too late".
  • Boy Band: Your typical band made up of five Pretty Boys that have a ton of screaming fangirls. Also parodied, since any jokes about how boy bands are "manufactured" by the music industry are quite literal in their case due to being clones.
  • Brainless Beauty: Male examples, but to be fair, they spent their entire lives in a cage.
  • Creator Cameo: Alex Hirsch provides some of their voice work, as does episode co-writer Matt Chapman.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Despite Candy's prediction that they won't last a week in the wild, they all return during Weirdmageddon - somehow having not only survived in the wilderness for several months, but also surviving the various dangers of Weirdmageddon until they could get to the Mystery Shack.
  • Dance Battler: Except not really.
    Oh no! They're aggressively dancing at us!
  • Dumb Blonde: None of them seem to be that smart.
  • Extreme Doormat: They are extremely submissive and timid, which is why they didn't stand up to their manager or Mabel when they were trapped with them.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: With visible irises as well.
  • Manchild: The result of being raised in a giant hamster cage and verbally abused by their evil manager.
  • Meaningful Name: Sev'ral Timez were cloned from the same template several times. It's also a parody of "One Direction": instead of a word denoting singular followed by a word denoting space, it's a word denoting plural followed by a word denoting time.
  • Mr. Fanservice: In-universe.
  • Mundane Object Amazement: Frequently. "Yo, I heard about these things called 'trees?!' I dunno WHAT they are, but I wanna KISS one!"
  • Nice Guy: The bandmates are portrayed as friendly, kind, respectful, and pretty sweet people. Jokingly suggested with the lyric "WE'RE NON-THREATENING!"
  • Non-Indicative Name: Chubby Z really doesn't look all that chubby.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: They're the few of only characters with visible irises. It wasn't until the later episode Soos and the Real Girl that other characters having visible irises. One is a Mystery Shack customer that was scared off by Soos and the other is a clerk at Beeply Boop's.
  • Non-Uniform Uniform: Probably so you can tell them apart.
  • Odd Name Out: Deep Chris.
  • Our Clones Are Identical: Only their clothes and hairstyle visibly separates them.
  • The Pollyanna: All of the members of Sev'ral Timez are really cheerful and surprisingly adjusted, considering their situation.
  • Pretty Boys: They are pretty.
  • Raised by Wolves: Raised in a giant hamster cage, so they tend to act like hamsters.
  • Xtreme Kool Letterz: Sev'ral Timez is much kooler than Several Times.

    The Pterodactyl

A prehistoric beast, unleashed on Gravity Falls after millions of years of being suspended in tree sap.

  • All Flyers Are Birds: Shrieks like a hawk, has eagle-like feet, and makes chicken-like nests. At least it's a quadruped.
  • Ambiguous Gender: It has eggs and seeing as there's no sign of another pterodactyl in the area, we can assume at first that it laid the eggs, which would designate it as a female. However, it's consistently referred to by male pronouns and has a large crest akin to a male pterosaur, and seeing as some of the other prehistoric creatures thawed out offscreen, it's possible that its mate did too and we just didn't see it.
  • Badass Normal: Compared to the other villainous beasts, who had some element of the supernatural to them, it's just a "regular" "dinosaur".
  • The Cameo: Appears briefly in "Weirdmageddon Part 1", arguably due to Bill's titular calamity.
  • Monster Is a Mommy: It turns out to have a nest full of eggs.
  • Monster of the Week: Of "The Land Before Swine".
  • Non-Malicious Monster: Implied, seeing as it has a nest full of eggs (one of which hatches onscreen), suggesting that it's simply a parent who's looking to feed its young.
  • Prehistoric Monster: Certainly plays the part.
  • Ptero Soarer: Looks like an unholy mixture of all stereotypes, down to the scaly skin, being called a "dinosaur" (though Stanford correctly identifies it as a "pterosaur" in Journal 3), having eagle-like hindlimbs, leathery wings, having a Pteranodon crest alongside rather mismatched teeth (which makes it coincidentally resemble Ludodactylus), making chicken-like nests and having zero to no body fat. Strangely enough, though, it is quadrupedal like a real pterosaur.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Has rather unrealistic slit pupils and makes lizardy noises.

    Xyler and Craz
Xyler (left) and Craz (right)
Voice by: John Roberts and Greg Cipes

Craz: "Wow, radical!"
Xyler: "I also think it's radical!"

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.

    Candy Monster

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 asked of it.

  • The Omniscient: Can answer any question placed inside it.
  • Self-Destruct Mechanism: The mailbox destroys itself when Mabel placed a video of her shoving gummy worms up her nose.
  • Story-Breaker Power: Given that its omniscience meant it could answer literally any question, including the identity of the journal's author, you HAD to figure that something or someone would intervene to prevent it from revealing one of the big plot points of Season 2. Cue Mabel and her gummy worms video offending it enough to trigger a self-destruct.


A resident in Gravity Falls who works at the bowling alley, and for some reason is always facing left.

  • Cyanide Pill: When Lefty's secret is revealed, the aliens controlling him commit suicide by swallowing glowing cubes that vaporize them instantly.
  • Killed Off for Real: When the aliens piloting him are exposed, they all take their suicide cubes, and Lefty himself bursts into flames.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Let's face it, Lefty's entire schtick (that he's actually a robot piloted by aliens, and him only looking left because his right side's nonexistance would be exposed) is only possible in a 2D cartoon.
  • Mobile-Suit Human: Turns out to be one controlled by a bunch of tiny aliens.
  • Robotic Reveal: See the previous one.

    Hide Behind

A tall and skinny creature that hides behind people.

    Island Head Beast
Voiced by: Fred Tatasciore

'"You have disturbed my slumber. Enter my mouth, children! ENTER YOUR DESTINY!" (spoken backwards)

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 five extra legs due to the pollution caused by a mud flap factory's runoff.

  • Ascended to Carnivorism: Her mutation has apparently given her a taste for meat, since immediately after being freed she shoots a bird out of the sky with her Eye Beams and starts eating it.
  • Back for the Finale: Appears in a cameo near the end of the last episode as one of the creatures waving Dipper and Mabel goodbye.
  • Body Horror: Three of her extra legs are growing out of her back, with another growing out of each side.
  • Eat the Dog: The owner of the Petting Zoo planned on eating her "Come cow-eatin' season."
  • Eye Beams: Thanks, radioactive material!
  • Nonindicative Name: Octavia the Eight-Legged Cow has nine legs.
  • Overly Long Tongue: As revealed at the end.

    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..."

Voiced by: Mark Hamill (fake author form, true form)

A monstrous shape-changer discovered in the author's underground bunker.

  • Alas, Poor Villain: In Journal 3, the Author was genuinely sad to have him locked away, though it didn't stop him in the end - particularly given what Shifty had just done to his assistant.
  • Ax-Crazy: Tries to murder four innocent people just so he could steal the journal.
  • Alien Blood: It's green.
  • Bound and Gagged: His tactic for ensuring that the people he impersonates don't show up at inopportune moments. In Journal 3, he kept Fiddleford McGucket out of the way while impersonating him by tying the poor guy up and stuffing him into a cabinet; of course, the wheels came off that plan when the Author heard the muffled screams coming from the cabinet.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He uses his shape-shifting powers to deceive the group by impersonating the Author.
  • Cover Identity Anomaly: Fools Dipper and Wendy into believing that he's the Author, only for the ruse to fall apart when Wendy takes a look at one of the empty bean cans scattered around the tunnel - and realizes that their new friend looks suspiciously identical to the brand mascot. Journal 3 reveals that the Shapeshifter doesn't actually know what the Author looks like, as he was wearing a surgical mask throughout most of their interactions.
  • Continuity Cavalcade: While looking through Dipper's journal, he takes on the forms of the Gremloblin, a gnome, and the Hide-Behind.
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: Capable of tearing through steel bars, Shifty has been known to underestimate his own strength; in Journal 3, while kept waiting in the Author's lab, he managed to bend the steel armrests of his chair out of shape in sheer anxiety.
  • Elemental Shapeshifter: Briefly takes the form of a mass of living fire in an attempt to escape the cryotube. It doesn't work.
  • Emotional Powers: According to Journal 3, he had a habit of changing shape in order to express emotion in much the same way that chameleons change color to express mood - becoming a tail-wagging dog to express happiness, or a sea urchin to express sorrow.
  • Expy: He's a PG version of The Thing.
  • Fatal Flaw: His obsession with the Journals. Not only does it end up tipping his hand to first the Author and Wendy during their respective encounters, it's also what ended up getting him imprisoned - on both occasions.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Adopts a charming, amiable exterior when impersonating the Author, and even after being unmasked, he still maintains a shallow, gloating mimicry of charm.
  • Gigantic Adults, Tiny Babies: After hatching, the Shapeshifter was about the same size as the Author's coffee cup. As an adult, his true form seems even taller than Manly Dan.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal: According to him (while impersonating the Author), he is capable of regenerating - just as well, given that he ends up getting an axe in the chest courtesy of Wendy and Dipper.
  • Go Mad from the Isolation: Implied; according to Journal 3, he was a much nicer guy in his youth, and even when he turned villainous, he only went so far as to tie up Fiddleford and take his form in an attempt to trick the Author into handing over the Journal. After spending thirty years alone in the bunker, though, the Shapeshifter has abandoned what little scruples he once possessed and is willing to do just about anything if it means getting his hands on the journal - including murder.
  • Guttural Growler: His voice both adds to his menacing presence and shows how long it's been since he's seen the Author.
  • In Series Nick Name: The Author used to call him "Shifty."
  • It Must Be Mine!: Second only to Gideon in sheer obsession with the Journals. Of course, the Shapeshifter isn't interested in the mysteries of Gravity Falls, being one of them himself: instead, he's after the library of new shapes the Journals can give him, and he's so eager to commit them to memory, he stops to read Journal 3 for several minutes - giving Wendy the time needed to Spot the Imposter.
  • Kill and Replace: As much as he liked Shifty, the Author got very paranoid about this happening by the end of their time together, and took to wearing surgical masks so the Shapeshifter couldn't memorize too many details about his face. As Journal 3 made clear, he was right to be cautious though Shifty got around this by impersonating Fiddleford McGucket instead, albeit without killing him.
  • 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 whole group.
  • Lack of Empathy: Sees no problem in murdering a group of innocent people just so he can get his hands on the Journal.
  • Lured into a Trap: Twice in his lifetime.
    • In Journal 3, the Author was able to exploit Shifty's obsessions by decorating a plumbing manual to look like the Journal and leaving it in one of the cryogenic tubes. The moment he heard where it was, the Shapeshifter ran for it without even thinking twice. Granted, the tube clearly didn't hold him long enough for the freezing cycle to complete - given that he's loose by the events of "Into The Bunker" - but it was more than enough to keep him busy while the Author sealed off the facility and trapped him inside.
    • In "Into The Bunker," Dipper and Mabel try to bait him into a trap by leading him on a chase through the corridors, then having Soos and Wendy rig one of the pipes to erupt and wash him away. It works, but it's not enough to stop him for good.
  • Meaningful Name: When he was young, the Author of the Journals called him "Shifty," a name that perfectly fits the Shapeshifter's sly, deceitful nature.
  • Monster of the Week: Of "Into the Bunker".
  • Mood-Swinger: Loses his patience insanely fast once he unveils himself, swinging wildly between false attempts at charm, explosive rage, and malicious delight.
  • Objectshifting: Proves himself more than capable of assuming the form of inanimate objects in "A Tale Of Two Stans": according to the flashback, the first thing Shifty did upon hatching from his egg was transform into the Author's coffee cup.
  • Our Monsters Are Weird: 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.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He escaped both his cage and the cryotube the Author tried to seal him in, but was still trapped inside the bunker until the group opened it up. Dipper and Mabel are able to force him back into one of the remaining cryotubes, and with Mabel and Soos operating the controls, he's frozen long before he can escape.
  • Shapeshifter Swan Song: After being trapped in the cryostasis chamber, he transforms into random forms in an attempt to escape - concluding with Dipper's form, just for the sake of freaking him out - before being frozen.
  • Shapeshifter Identity Crisis: The Author observes that the young Shifter eventually started asking him, with increasing worry, "who am I?", but The Author never provided an answer. It's implied this absence of a more firm sense of self is what ultimately made The Shapeshifter snap and go after the Journal in an attempt to find out who he is.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: The Author clearly feels some pity for him in Journal 3, observing that the Shapeshifter started as a very sweet infant in the end the Shapeshifter likely became more vicious due his unorthodox upbringing (being raised by a very at-arms-length member of another species).
  • The Sociopath: Unlike other monsters, he's not some mindless beast, he's a flat-out psychopath with no regard for life or property, and spends his last few moments of consciousness enjoying Dipper's terror.
  • Spot the Imposter: Impersonates Wendy to confuse Dipper, but doesn't know enough about their relationship to pull it off, and ends up getting an axe in the chest for his troubles.
  • Starfish Aliens: Journal 3 heavily implies that the Shapeshifter's egg came from a container of alien specimens in the UFO that crashed into Gravity Falls. The author's notes in said book reveal that its biology changes on a genetic level whenever it changes forms.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: When he was young, Shifty developed a taste for Baron Num Nums High Flyin' Beans, which were originally Fiddleford McGucket's favourite food as well, hence why there were so many cans of it around the lab. In fact, his very first words were spent calling out for beans! Apparently, he continued subsisting on beans after being locked away in the bunker, given that empty cans can be found scattered around his nest when Dipper and Wendy visit it.
  • Voice Changeling: The Shapeshifter naturally mimics the voices of others after assuming their forms, and can also alter his natural voice in order to sound less intimidating. Interestingly, Journal 3 indicates that this actually used to be one of the few limitations Shifty possessed: while posing as the Author's assistant, he couldn't quite get the voice right and had to pretend that he had a sore throat.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Surprisingly enough, Fiddleford McGucket (of all people) took a very dim view of the Author's affection towards the Shapeshifter and continuously reminded him that 210 was only being kept around as a test subject for the cryotubes, even regarding him as "livestock" - despite Shifty clearly being a sentient being.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Punches Wendy in the face during their fight for the journal, and tried to kill her beforehand.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Went after the twins after transforming them into a deformed fusion of themselves.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Impersonates Wendy and pretends to be wounded or dead in order to lure in Dipper; immediately drops the act when the real Wendy shows up holding the Journal.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: According to Journal 3, the Shapeshifter had "a delightful temperament" when he was young, and the Author was actually quite affectionate towards him. However, everything went wrong after Shifty started getting obsessed with the Journal...
  • Vagueness Is Coming: Before he's frozen, the Shapeshifter spends his last few seconds tauntingly warning Dipper that prying too deeply into Gravity Falls' secrets will doom him.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifter: His main ability. He's able to mimic the forms of other beings at will, requiring only sight in order to learn the shapes - as he demonstrates after getting the Journal. So far, there don't appear to be any limits to his powers: he's frequently seen taking shapes much bigger and smaller than him, mimics voices just as easily as shapes, and can even transform into more abstract shapes like fire.

    The Liliputtians
Franz: "We're Liliputtians. Lile... Lile... putt. It makes more sense written out than spoken. And we control the balls!"

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.

  • Affably Evil: Being voiced by Patton Oswalt naturally leads to Franz sounding quite friendly no matter what he's doing.
  • Ax-Crazy: The little bastards are a tad bit unhinged.
  • Cute and Psycho: They're small and adorable, but will go to any length to get what they want. They tried to shred Pacifica to get the Mabel's sticker, and when she eats it they decide to cut her open to get it.
  • 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.
  • Forgotten Fallen Friend: Outside of Polly, no one seems torn up by Big Henry's death.
  • Gentle Giant: Big Henry was the largest by comparison and the nicest.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Big Henry pushes a ball through a gas-filled mine shaft just to get the ball through their hole and improve its chances of getting the sticker.
  • Karma Houdini: They get no punishment for constantly cheating in golf matches or attempting to murder three children. Ironically, Big Henry, the nicest of them, is the one to die.
  • Large Ham: All of them.
  • Lilliputians: Obviously.
  • Monster of the Week: Of "The Golf War".
  • 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.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: They turn on the twins over a sticker.
  • Punny Name: They're lilliputians who live in a mini-golf course. Lampshaded by Franz that the name makes more sense when written down.
  • Rube Goldberg Device: The methods they use to control the golf balls are essentially this. Dipper even lampshades it by calling Franz's demonstration of how they do it "needlessly complicated".
  • Senseless Sacrifice: Big Henry's sacrifice was this as in the end, no one won the sticker.
  • 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.

"Oh Soos, I am not an ordinary game. I am... special. The programmers tried to delete me, so I had to delete them."

Voiced by: Jessica DiCicco

The love interest of the Japanese Dating Sim game Romance Academy 7. Also happens to be sentient, and rather possessive of her player.

  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: She reveals that in the past, her developers found out that something was gravely wrong with her and tried to delete her. She deleted them instead.
  • Always a Bigger Fish: Blasted Rumble while in his arcade game.
  • Animesque: Her overall design is very obviously meant to mimic an anime style. Justified since In-Universe, she's a character from a Japanese Dating Sim.
  • Badass Adorable: She can possess and power anything electronic, gaining complete control over it. This control is demonstrated to Rumble as he tries to fight .GIFfany while she passes through his arcade game; she casually oneshots him and moves along.
  • Brain Uploading: Tried to do this to Soos so he could stay in the game with her forever.
  • Break Them by Talking: She tries convincing Soos to accept the above mentioned Brain Uploading by pointing out how real women are unpredictable and that it's likely Melody would want nothing to do with him after this. She's proven wrong after being destroyed.
  • Bright Is Not Good: She's brightly colored and all smiles... on the outside.
  • Contagious A.I.: Can project herself out of the disc as an Energy Being with Shock and Awe, and also seems able to generate power for anything she's inhabiting. She still needs the disc intact to remain alive even after leaving it, however.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Pink eyes and pink hair.
  • Cute and Psycho: Aside from already being a Yandere, she also "deleted" her programmers when they tried to delete her.
  • Deadly Euphemism: She says she "deleted" her programmers when they tried to delete her, and also threatens to delete Soos and his friends if he won't stay with her.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: "Oh, hi there! My name is .GIFfany! I am a schoolgirl at School University!"
  • Domestic Abuse: Her possessive attitude towards Soos has shades of this and see Break Them by Talking above.
  • Entitled to Have You: She seems to believe that whoever buys her game and interacts with her (in this case, Soos) is automatically her boyfriend, and doesn't take it well when Soos expresses interest in another girl.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: Seeing how adorable and anime-esque she is, you wouldn't believe she'd be capable of murder to have a boyfriend.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Acts like the ideal girlfriend, but it hides how violently possessive she is.
  • Female Misogynist: She views human women as judgemental and unpredictable and believes that they will just make fun of Soos. She will also kill any girl that comes between her and Soos. Then again, she could just be manipulating him by saying whatever she thinks will get him to back down.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Her backstory in her game is mentioned by Soos to include a father who is an octopus man. However she displays no cephalopodic traits herself.
  • If I Can't Have You...: She won't hesitate to "delete" Soos if he continues resisting her.
  • Instant A.I.: Just Add Water!: If .GIFfany's visual representation of her backstory is at all accurate, her programmers got overzealous and created a genuine artificial intelligence by complete accident while just trying to create a game character. The results speak for themselves: when they try to delete their mistake, she responds in kind.
  • Intentional Engrish for Funny: Though her speech is correct, her game's intro contains the line, "Anydthing can hadplen."
  • It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": Although pronounced her name as "Gif-fany" (hard G) when she introduces herself, Soos makes reference to this as a Shout-Out to the image format .gif, that has caused some debate about its pronunciation.
    "Or maybe it's pronounced Jif-fany? I was never really sure..."
  • Joshikousei: Her design invokes this image, since her game takes place at a school and she wears a Sailor Fuku.
  • Kill It with Fire: Soos destroys her disc in a pizza oven. This doesn't kill her though, only trapped her in the arcade.
  • Machine Monotone: Her speech sounds cheerful, but still rather stilted and robotic. When she gets angry, her voice sounds more human.
  • Manic Pixie Dream Girl: Subverted; she appears to be this on the surface, but she's really a Yandere.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: She implies that she is an AI, however, destroying her original disk disables her, despite her not being in it at the time. This implies that she might be some kind of spirit that inhabits machinery, with the disk being her Soul Jar, to an extent at least, as destroying the disk does not fully destroy her, only prevents her from moving between electronics.
  • Meaningful Appearance: Fittingly for an AI, the ribbon in her hair is actually a ribbon cable.
  • The Mirror Shows Your True Self: When possessing an animatronic, her reflection on the arcade machine cabinets shows her original pixelated form as she walks past them.
  • Monster of the Week: Of "Soos and the Real Girl".
  • The Most Dangerous Video Game: The game store clerk discourages Soos and the kids from buying the dating sim, as three previous owners returned it before. If that isn't enough, there is even a sticky note (with a table-flipping emoticon to boot) that advises the game be destroyed. Needless to say, they learn the hard way, but Soos does destroy it, and .GIFfany with it, after discovering the kind of character she really was. It was revealed earlier that the game's programmers tried to delete her. She "deleted" them instead.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: She wouldn't have hesitated to kill Soos's friends if it meant getting back with him.
  • Nightmare Face: Oh dear GOD!
  • No Ontological Inertia: Despite leaving Soos's computer to take control of various other electronics, destroying the Romance Academy 7 disc destroys her in turn. Or, at the very least, confines her to a single device.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: She looks very Animesque, especially with her pink hair and Sailor Fuku, since she's meant to look like a character from a Japanese Dating Sim. She's also pixellated like Rumble McSkirmish, since they both had the same character designer, Paul Robertson, and her game is implied to be from the late nineties or early 2000s.
  • Not Quite Dead: After the events of "Soos and the Real Girl", it's revealed, in Gravity Falls: Journal 3, that after burning her disc, .GIFanny was transported to a Fight Fighters machine, where she and Rumble McSkirmish alternately trade pet names and energy blasts.
  • Psycho Ex-Girlfriend: Considers herself Soos's girlfriend after a period of interaction, no doubt like the previous players, and goes berserk when he effectively dumps her.
  • Punny Name: Her name is a pun on the .GIF image format, right down to Soos considering its pronunciation.
  • Rainbow Lite: The top of her shirt and her bow both have a set of simplistic pink-yellow-aqua stripes.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Subverted. She seems like a nice girl at first, but she's actually psychotic and murderous.
  • School Uniforms Are the New Black: She wears a Japanese sailor-style school uniform, or seifuku.
  • Ship Tease: In Journal 3, it's implied that she might have gravitated towards Rumble McSkirmish after getting trapped in his game. The two trade pet names and flirty dialogue while trying to destroy each other.
  • Shock and Awe: Associated with this, given her cybernetic nature. The display she shows concerning how she "deleted" her programmers depicts her electrocuting them. She also briefly gains electric powers when passing through a Fight Fighters cabinet, and attempts to kill Melody and the Pines twins with a blast of lightning from the animatronic she was possessing. When finally confined to a single Fight Fighters cabinet, her ranged attack is described as lightning when she and Rumble take a break from exchanging sweet talk to exchange blows.
  • Shout-Out: Her pixellated appearance is likely meant to reference earlier games from the Tokimeki Memorial series of Dating Sims, whose characters had pixellated sprites before the graphics improved. .GIFfany herself resembles Shiori of the same series.
    • Some fans have drawn comparisons to .GIFfany and Yuno Gasai based on their obsession with their "loved one" and their need to kill if necessary.
    • Not to mention that her father's apparently an octopus man.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Journal 3 reveals that .GIFfany actually didn't perish after her disk was destroyed, but instead got trapped in the Fight Fighters game. The destruction of her disk suggests that she can no longer jump to other forms of technology, so she's presumably trapped there forever. Not that she minds, seeing as she's switched romantic gears from Soos to Rumble McSkirmish.
  • Soul Jar: A variation: .GIFfany is tied to her disc, no matter how far she gets from it. When it is destroyed, she is destroyed along with it. Or, rather, her ability to freely travel is destroyed, and she winds up confined to a single device.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": According to the Gravi-team Falls Tumblr, her name is spelled .GIFfany. And according to creator Alex Hirsch, there's a preceeding dot and the "GIF" is in all caps.
  • Stalker with a Crush: When her "boyfriend" isn't interacting with her, she follows him via electrical cables.
  • Vague Age: In-game anyway. She attends "School University", a reference to the sometimes ham-fisted ways translations age up the girls in Japanese works.
  • Wingding Eyes: Parodied; for every time "her boyfriend" flatters her, her eyes get a new highlight. Soos flatters her so much, her eyes get huge, sparkly and with flowers and cat faces.
  • Yandere: She tends to become attached to her game's player, viewing him to be her boyfriend and being determined to keep the relationship going by any means necessary. When Soos (her most recent player) expresses a desire to date a real girl, she flies into a jealous rage and declares that she won't let another girl take him away from her. In the climax, she threatens to kill his date and his friends unless he agreed to join her in the game.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is pink, which is fitting since she's already Animesque to begin with. According to concept art, she can change it to at least yellow or green.

    Hand Witch

Voiced by: Matt Chapman

An ugly witch who steals peoples' hands, including Stan's when he insults her and steals one of her golden watches.

    Claymation Monsters

Animated monsters that were brought to life by Harry Claymore through black magic.

    Society of the Blind Eye
"It is unseen."

Blind Ivan voiced by: Peter Serafinowicz

A secret society that works to keep the abnormalities of Gravity Falls secret. They are led by Blind Ivan.

  • Ancient Conspiracy: Well, not that ancient, but it IS a conspiracy to keep things hidden in Gravity Falls.
  • Bald of Evil: Blind Ivan, whose baldness shows a scalp covered in tattoos.
  • The Dog Was the Mastermind: The leader is an unknown, but the rest of the society is filled out by minor and joke characters. Unknown to all of the members (due to their own memory wipes, no less), their revered founder is Fiddleford McGucket.
  • Embarrassing Tattoo: The ending cipher of Society of the Blind Eye identifies "misspelled tattoos" as one member's motivation for joining the Society. It's ambiguous whether this refers to Blind Ivan or the tattooed bouncer.
  • Evil Brit: Blind Ivan, complete with having his accent mocked by Mabel.
  • Foreshadowing: The society has been alluded to in cryptographs in various media. First mention is in the online game Rumble's Revenge, which mentions "A secret society."
  • Forgotten First Meeting: McGucket and Blind Ivan originally met at a carnival, when the former was still working for Ford, and the latter was a teenage carnival maintenance worker going by his real name of Ivan Wexler.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Dipper uses the memory wiping device to erase the members' memories of the Society's existence and their part in it.
  • Human Notepad: In a mild example, Blind Ivan has his bald head tattooed with a diagram dividing the parts of the brain based on what they govern, such as knowledge and more inane and unlikely things like "the ladies" and "cats". He's had these tattoos since he was a mere teenager working as a carnival janitor.
  • Ignorance Is Bliss: What they believe. However, Dipper points out the flaws in this, and it's heavily implied that multiple mind wipes are the reason why certain townspeople are so... odd.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Their MO.
  • Memory-Wiping Crew: How they operate. When a citizen sees one of the town's bizarre creatures, they kidnap and mind wipe them.
  • Monster of the Week: Of "Society of the Blind Eye".
  • Not Even Bothering with the Accent: Ivan has his voice actor's British accent, despite implicitly having lived in Gravity Falls even longer than the other members. He may just be trying to sound dramatic.
  • Punny Name: Blind Ivan, leader of the Blind Eye Society.
  • Secret Circle of Secrets: A secret order inside Gravity Falls, so secret that even the Author of the Journals knew very little about them.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: The organization was founded and exists to provide comfort to those who are tormented by memories of the supernatural events they witnessed. However their ignorance of the side effects, and dogmatic belief that all such memories must be erased regardless of if the subject wants it or not (not to mention their methods involving kidnapping), put them at odds with the heroes.

    Love God

Voiced by: John DiMaggio

A cherub/cupid who moonlights as a rock star.

  • Ambiguously Bi: We see him get out of the back of a van with a woman and Tyler, both of whom he calls "groupies".
  • Apologetic Attacker: He apologizes twice when he used the visions of heartbreak past
    "Sorry, Kids, but you've left me no choice. Visions of heartbreak past!"
  • Beware the Nice Ones: If he thinks you're interfering with his job, he'll show some of the nastier applications of The Power of Love—like summoning visions of your past heartbreaks to manipulate you.
  • Big Beautiful Man: Cupid is popular to pull of A Lady on Each Arm.
  • Big Eater: He certainly enjoys eating very big sandwiches.
  • Big Fun: He's a big guy who is extremely friendly if you're on his good side.
  • Celebrity Masquerade: A divine being masquerading as a mortal rock star.
  • Comes Great Responsibility: Realizes that his love potions can have extreme social consequences, so he uses them carefully.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Mabel. They both have a similar optimism and love of matchmaking and are both capable of aggression but prefer a peaceful method however unlike Mabel he can be careless and manipulative about his role as a matchmaker when he is angered.
  • Hero Antagonist: Much like Blendin's first appearance, he ends up in an antagonistic role for trying to stop the twins from using dangerous assets stolen from him - with the added fact that his attempt to stop the twins comes when Mabel is trying to undo her previous action.
  • Interspecies Romance: He can make these happen, as proven when he makes a badger and a snake fall in love. He's also later stated to have a specific Love Potion for interspecies love.
  • I Warned You: Mabel ignored his warning about the risks of using his potions.
    "Kid, I tried to tell you. This stuff is way too dangerous."
  • Jabba Table Manners: His body was covered in mustard when he was eating a sandwich.
  • A Lady on Each Arm: Walks out of the van with a lady on one arm and a gentleman on the other.
  • Large Ham: Just take a look at who voices him.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: He's about as close to this trope as Disney Channel will allow.
  • Love Potion: Uses a belt of various potions to make matches with a flick of his fingers.
  • The Matchmaker: Used to be his profession. Now that Internet Dating has made him mostly obsolete, he matchmakes as a hobby.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Bears more than a slight resemblance to one Jack Black.
  • Physical God: A minor one, anyway. He can fly, make people fall in love, and shrugs off what would normally be lethal damage.
  • Rage Quit: Legitmently after he has enough, this best describes his reaction.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After Stan's flaming Woodstick balloon crashes on him when he reclaims his Anti-Love Potion from Mabel, he decides that trying to stop the twins isn't worth the effort.
  • Winged Humanoid: Has a pair of tiny wings on his back - part and parcel of his Angelic nature. He can fly with them, but it takes a while to lift off the ground since he doesn't use them much.

    Ghost of Northwest Manor/Lumberjack Ghost
"I smell... A NORTHWEST!"

A powerful and dangerous ghost haunting the Northwest's manor.

  • Anti-Villain: He has a more than legitimate grievance against the Northwest family, his problem is poor impulse control and a tendency towards collateral damage.
  • Ax-Crazy: Dipper describes him as "unstable", and he fits this perfectly, happy to murder dozens of innocent people in his quest for vengeance against the Northwest family.
  • An Axe to Grind: Fights using a giant battle ax, ironically separate from the hatchet lodged into his head.
  • Badass Baritone: Kevin Michael Richardson's deep voice makes him even more terrifying.
  • Cool Old Guy: Even before he died, while clearly being somewhere in his later years, he was still a Mighty Lumberjack, who survived years of backbreaking labour constructing the Northwest manor, in the harsh conditions that led to the deaths of dozens of other Lumberjacks. After he died, and became a level ten ghost...well.
  • Bald of Evil: Upon returning as a ghost, he lost all of his hair.
  • Beard of Evil: A huge, blue flaming one at that.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Being swept away in a mudslide and getting hit in the head by an ax (while still living long enough to say a Dying Curse) certainly qualifies.
  • Dying Curse: He swore to return and exact revenge on the Northwest family if they still refuse to keep their promise to allow common folk into their party.
    "And so I said with final breath:
    150 years I'll return from death
    And if the gate's still closed to town,
    Wealthy blood will stain the ground."
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Is a level ten ghost, one so powerful that the only advice the author could give if confronted by one is "Pray for Mercy." Likewise he spent decades trying to force the Northwest family to honour their promise and let the townspeople into their party and succeeded.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Only known as "The Lumberjack". In Journal 3, Dipper shows a photo of an old, familiar-looking photo that makes him suspect he's Archibald Corduroy, one of Wendy's ancestors.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Dipper. Both sought revenge against the Northwest family on the behalf of another character (the deceased lumberjacks for the ghost, and Mabel for Dipper), both were tricked into working for the family, and both became enraged upon discovering the Northwests' true motives. Unlike the ghost, though, Dipper chooses not to exact revenge and forgives Pacifica. The ghost even mentions the similarity.
    Lumberjack: "You remind me of me a hundred and fifty years ago."
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: The second he is let out of a mirror, he turns everybody at the party into wood. Dipper initially averted this, knowing letting him out of the mirror would be bad, even if he hated the Northwests as well. Unfortunately, the Lumberjack still found a way out by being allowed to see the trees.
  • Evil vs. Evil: Sure, the Northwests went back on their promise to share their glory, and they treated his people like they were garbage, but even if he has a legitimate reason to hate them, he is hostile towards every living thing he sees. Even Dipper knows trusting him is a bad idea.
  • Famous Last Words: As he dissipates into the air: "I feel...lumber justice."
  • Flaming Hair: And beard. Weaponized when he uses his follicles to heat up the mirror he's trapped in, causing Dipper to drop and break it.
  • Freudian Excuse: The ghost's motive for haunting the Northwests is to punish them for their betrayal and callousness towards him and his fellow lumberjacks who had died to build the manor.
  • Ghostly Goals: All he wants is for a Northwest to honor the agreement, and invite the common people to their party. The Northwests aren't keen to oblige. Save for Pacifica.
  • Given Name Reveal: Journal 3 reveals it was Archibald Corduroy
  • He Who Fights Monsters: While his quest for vengeance against the Northwest family was arguably justifiable, it eventually grew so all-consuming that it didn't matter to him how many innocent people ended up as collateral damage.
  • Jacob Marley Apparel: The hatchet to the head that killed him in life is still lodged in his ghost's head.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: His anger toward the Northwest family's duplicity makes him sympathetic. Going on a rampage and killing people who just happen to be there doesn't.
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: He's got quite a cleft chin underneath that beard.
  • Metaphorgotten:
    Lumberjack: "YES, YES, IT'S HAPPENING! MY HEART, ONCE HARD AS OAK, now grows soft like more of a... birch, or something."
  • Mighty Lumberjack: Even before he died and gained supernatural powers. He's a Corduroy, so this is pretty much a given.
  • Miles to Go Before I Sleep: Of a sort. While his physical form did meet its end in a rather violent fashion, his soul is implied to have stayed in the manor painting that Dipper and Pacifica found him in. Furthermore, his final lines with Pacifica sound extremely relieved, both because he finally got his justice and because his soul could finally leave the manor.
    Lumberjack: "Pacifica, you're not like the other Northwests. I feel... lumber justice. [dissipates in a beam of light]
  • Misplaced Retribution: While his anger against the Northwest is justified, he has no problems attacking others who have nothing to do with this, simply because they are in the vicinity.
  • Monster of the Week: Of "Northwest Mansion Mystery".
  • Non-Standard Character Design: His ghostly form, particularly his blank white eyes, resembles a Fleischer Bros. cartoon far more closely than his human body in the flashback does.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: He's a category 10 ghost, the most dangerous of them all. Since he's also a ghost that came out of a portrait, he can be sealed inside of a silver mirror.
  • Red Right Hand: The ghosts is missing an eye.
  • Revenge: Wants revenge against the Northwests for welshing on their part of the deal, and locking the regular joes out of their party.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Unfortunately, he doesn't hesitate to attack the innocent guests at the party, who have no idea what's going on.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: He suddenly started speaking in rhyme for his Dying Curse and when attacking the people at the party.
    Dipper: The ghost is turning everyone to wood, and he just started rhyming, for some reason?
  • Sins of Our Fathers: Played with. While the specific act the ghost holds the current Northwests accountable for (his death by drowning/axe to the head and the death of his lumber friends) was technically caused by their ancestors, the descendants are plainly aware of their family's past atrocities and know what's needed to break the curse and make up for their sins, but refuse to do so out of a stubborn insistence to keep their party exclusive.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Has noble goals, but his desire for revenge makes him attack innocent people to achieve them is a major problem.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: If he wasn't willing to kill innocent people in his quest for Revenge, it'd be hard to root against him.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He planned on killing Pacifica alongside the rest of her family and anyone else who got in his way, and would have done so if Dipper and Pacifica hadn't managed to stop him.

A creature part-cyclops part-octopus that escaped from the basement
  • Ax-Crazy: This thing is pretty violent.
  • Cyclops: Duh.
  • Our Monsters Are Weird: Certainly not something you'd encounter in everyday life, especially something whose eye turns into its mouth. In addition, it looks suspiciously similar to Shuma-Gorath.

    Probabilitor the Annoying

The mascot of "Dungeons, Dungeons & More Dungeons" summoned from another dimension by the Infinity Die.

  • Affably Evil: Although he is a villain and wants to eat Dipper and Ford's brains, he genuinely enjoys playing DD&MD and tells Stan that the game is fun. He also plays by the rules, while choosing a game edition that's to his advantage.
  • Art Evolution: In-Universe Example; As Dipper notes, the creators of DD&MD like to change Probabilitor's appearance every few years. Unfortunately, this led to a Dork Age in the 90s (see below). invoked
  • Basement-Dweller: If his mom making him his lunch is any indication.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Or apples in this case, when his mother packed him lunch.
  • Eat Your Brains: He plans to eat Grunkle Ford and Dipper's to increase his "in-chant-elligence."
  • Evil Sorcerer: A classic depiction of this trope, right down to the beard, cloak and giant staff (with a multi-sided die as the ornament on top).
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: "You'll never outrun my Ogre-nado, it is what it sounds like."
  • Expy: In addition to spoofing Dungeon Masters, Probabilitor's desire to eat brains parodies Mindflayers from Dungeons & Dragons.
  • Game Master: Of "Dungeons, Dungeons & More Dungeons."
  • Hero Killer: By his own account, he's been summoned to life multiple times in various dimensions where DD&MD exists, and he's won every one of his encounters.
  • Laughably Evil: Having a desire to eat the brains of Dipper and Ford aside, it's hard not to laugh at his whims.
  • Mad Mathematician: Has the power of magical math.
  • Meaningful Name: He's a master of statistics and chance, and very unpleasant company.
  • Monster of the Week: Of "Dungeons, Dungeons and More Dungeons".
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Think of every whiny, snively, obnoxious geek in their 20s you've ever met. Now give them magical powers and a desire to eat people's brains. That's Probabilitor.
  • Pungeon Master: Makes a lot of math-related puns.
  • Totally Radical: In the early 90s, when the creators of the game attempted to make him and the game "cooler", he was renamed "Probabilitizzle" and given a Day-Glo hip-hop makeover, complete with shades, a hoodie, and parachute pants.
  • Whatever Mancy: Has control over the power of math (gasp).
  • Wizard Beard: A very prominent one at that.

Voiced by: Sam Marin

A Unicorn whose hair is needed to Bill-proof the shack.

  • Action Figure Speech: When speaking, her horn glows but never moves her mouth.
  • Alien Blood: When Mabel decks her, she bleeds rainbow.
  • Back for the Finale: She's part of Stan's army during Weirdmaggedon.
  • Bait the Dog: Seems to be a friendly, pure and beautiful unicorn. Actually is... anything but.
  • Broken Pedestal: Her cruel behavior's enough to turn Mabel off unicorns forever. Mabel.
  • The Bully: A passive-aggressive cruel prankster version. Her standards of "pure of heart" are deliberately unattainable, she just wants to torment people who bother her for kicks. Even other unicorns think she's gone a bit far when she reduces Mabel to tears.
  • Can't Argue with Elves: Or unicorns in this case, her impossibly high demands of goodness and nobility is really an act to make her and the rest of the unicorns look good and get the others to leave them alone.
  • Crossdressing Voices: Is clearly voiced by a man in a ridiculous falsetto voice.
  • Evil Is Petty: Unlike many of the other supernatural antagonists, who have some kind of goal or are just mindless destructive beings by nature. Her only source of antagonism is to hurt a little girl's feelings.
  • Expy: Her appearance is reminiscent of Amalthea, particularly the way her mane is drawn. She also has some My Little Pony vibes. In particular, she has a Cutie Mark which bears resemblance to Friendship Is Magic Rarity but she also shares part of her name and similar mane coloring with Princess Celestia. In short she seems to be a nightmarish fusion of these three plus every Lisa Frank unicorn ever.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Despite refusing to help Mabel protect her family against Bill just to be a jerk, she later joins Stan's army against him.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Exudes this aura to a sickening degree and demands it of any maiden who would have her hair. She's anything but, and is actually just dicking with Mabel. invoked
  • In-Series Nickname: Another unicorn calls her C-Beth, which is a bit shorter.
  • Jerkass: It turns out she's really nothing more but a liar to get Mabel off her back.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Despite her being a complete jerk who didn't even believe the whole "pure of heart" schtick. Celestabellebethabelle is correct for one thing: Doing good deeds to make yourself look good isn't all that noble.
  • Last of His Kind: She claims she is this. She's lying.
  • Light Is Not Good: She has a pure white coat, shiny mane, and she spent the whole episode emotionally tormenting a young girl for kicks. Though she's still a saint compared to Bill Cipher.
  • Monster of the Week: In "The Last Mabelcorn".
  • Overly Long Name: Her name appears to be a composite of several.
  • Screw You, Elves!: Celestabellebethabelle gets one good punch in the nose from Mabel.
  • Swiss Army Tears: Inverted. She sheds a single, rainbow-colored tear, and it kills a flower in seconds.
  • Talking Lightbulb: Her mouth never moves when speaking, but her horn glows.
  • Troll: She admits she did everything listed above for kicks.
  • Unicorn: Yep.
  • Unicorns Are Sacred: Cruelly subverted. That being said, her hair does protect the Shack against Bill.

Voiced by: Chelsea Peretti

Stan's biggest rival tourist trap owner, and secretly a spider creature who uses the place to draw her victims.

  • Achilles' Heel: Anything that takes care of normal spiders works on her if it's big enough.
  • Black Widow: To an almost literal extent. She seduces men and kills them afterwards, though her motivation is food rather than money.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: Aside from the aforementioned blonde human form, her skin is noticeably tanned, even with some tan lines.
  • Dead Guy on Display: Darlene's MO is displaying the corpses of her victims in plain sight as a mummy attraction.
  • Giant Spider: Her true form, though she usually keeps her top half human to make it even more unsettling.
  • Hidden in Plain Sight: She intentionally circulates "legends" about Spider People to lure tourists to Mystery Mountain. She also keeps the dried-up bodies of her victims and displays them to visitors under the guise of "mummies".
  • Honey Trap: She especially enjoys enticing arrogant guys who think they're picking her up.
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: Even for her age.
  • Karma Houdini: She ends up stuck under her Paul Bunyan statue, but is still alive, seemingly unharmed, and swears to keep preying on gullible men once she gets out.
  • Literal Man Eater: She flirts with the male visitors of her tourist trap, and then devours them.
  • Monster of the Week: Of "Roadside Attraction", and the final one encountered in the series.
  • Serial Killer: It's implied the "new mummies daily" in the Mystery Mountain crypt are all her previous victims: There are several cocoons inside the cave she lured Stan into (with even a skeleton popping out of one) and she even refers to Stan as "the catch of the day", making it pretty clear that he isn't the first of her victims.
  • The Sociopath: She's not a mindless beast, she enjoys murdering people. Even happily mocking them before she kills them, and mounts them as part of her exhibition.
  • Spider People: Subverted. She takes a drider-like form at one point, but her true upper body is just as spider-like as the bottom.
  • Spiders Are Scary: Alex Hirsch even claims she will give you literal nightmares.
  • Super Toughness: She doesn't seem to be very hurt by being crushed under a statue.
  • Vocal Dissonance: That trashy, sultry voice she uses in her human disguise doesn't change at all in her true form.
  • We Will Meet Again: Swears this to Stan when stuck under her Paul Bunyan statue.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Has no problem trying to kill Dipper, Mabel, Candy and Grenda when they get in the way of her "catch of the day".

    Bill's Henchmaniacs
Voiced by: Danielle Fishel (Pyronica), Patrick McHale (Hectorgon), Andy Merrill (Teeth, 8-Ball), Matt Chapman (Keyhole, Paci-Fire)

Bill's fellow demons and monsters from the Nightmare Realm, who wish to wreak havoc across Earth along with him.

  • Affably Evil: Considering who they're friends with, this isn't surprising.
  • All Here In The Manual: The Lava Lamp creature's name is "Lava Lamp Guy" as revelated in a deleted scene from Weirdmageddon 2: Escape From Reality.
  • Anthropomorphic Food: Zanthar is a giant, purple loaf of bread with four legs.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Pyronica is apparently this of Bill's blue flames.
  • Army of Thieves and Whores:
    Bill: Now meet the gang of interdimensional criminals and nightmares I call my friends!
  • Ax-Crazy: They're just as, if not more, mentally unstable than Bill is.
  • Badass Boast: Paci-Fire gives a good one to Soos before the fight.
    Paci-Fire: I have butchered millions on countless moons.
  • Badass Mustache: Hectorgon has a big one.
  • Belly Mouth: One of them (Paci-Fire) has a face on its torso, with a pacifier chained to its leg.
  • Butterface: If you look past the one eye, horns, missing teeth and Overly Long Tongue, Pyronica is really hot!
  • Cheating Angle:
    • Amorphous Shape. Notice how he's always drawn in the same position, in the same angle, in every one of his appearances.
    • Kryptos as well, justified considering he seems to come from the same dimention as Bill.
  • Cephalothorax: Kryptos, who is little more than a square-shaped mouth with limbs.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience:
    • 8 Ball - Green
    • Zanthar - Purple
    • Lava Lamp Guy - Orange
    • Amorphous Shape - Rainbow
    • Paci-Fire - Black
    • Keyhole - Blue
    • Kryptos - Grey
    • Hectorgon - Red
    • Pyronica - Pink
    • Teeth - Pink
  • Do Not Taunt Cthulu: When Grenda says to the Henchmaniacs, that they will never take them alive. Teeth answers to her threat by eating Smebulock, saying that is fine for them. Shmebulock is puked by Teeth when he's sucked by the rift.
    Teeth: That's fine with us! (Eats Shmebulock, the townsfolk and resistant react in shock)
  • Eldritch Abomination: Some of them look even stranger and more alien than Bill himself.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Subverted. When Bill vaporizes Time Baby, it looks like they are horrified, only to reveal they were actually impressed.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: 8-Ball wears iron stocks with broken off chains on his right hand and right foot, but not on either of his left.
  • Make My Monster Grow: Bill can use his powers to make them giants.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When they increase their size, their eyes glow red.
  • Hidden Depts: Paci-Fire apparently is smart enough to have some knowledge from the rift, sadly his scene was scrapped, forcing Bill to get the information from Ford instead.
  • Horny Devils: Pyronica gives off these vibes, being a voluptuous demoness who's associated with fire. She's a more G-rated variant, though.
  • Limited Animation: Probably intentional, but Amorphous Shape is always drawn in the same position, in the same angle in each one of his appeareances.
  • Monstrous Cannibalism: They play a Spin the Bottle game with a petrified Lazy Susan (Spin the Person), where one of them eats the one pointed at. The one eaten was back in the next episode though, so it's apparently not lethal.
  • Nice Hat: Zanthar wears a party hat all the time, while both Hectorgon and an unnamed Lava Lamp creature both sport spiffy bowler hats.
  • Nonhumans Lack Attributes: Pyronica has a humanoid body with no discernible clothing and a visible belly button, but otherwise doesn't have any frontal attributes that would warrant a bump in the age rating. She does, however, have a butt.
  • Oculothorax: The Eye-Bats, whose anatomy consists of a large eye, a pair of wings, and nothing else.
  • Off-Model: At times:
    • Paci-Fire gets this more notoriously during "Weirdmageddon Part 1", he gets better and is drawn better in the following parts.
    • Hectorgon is drawn without arms at one point in "Weirdmageddon Part 1".
    • Teeth, Hectorgon, Lava Lamp Guy and Amorphous shape lack their auras during "Weirdmageddon 2: Escape From Reality".
    • Teeth's arms come from his mouth rather than behind it in "Weirdmageddon 2: Escape From Reality".
    • Lava Lamp Guy is opaque in "Weirdmageddon 2: Escape From Reality", when he's suppoused to be transparent.
    • Keyhole is drawn without the dark shades around his eyes, during "Weirdmageddon 2: Escape From Reality".
    • Amorphous Shape's aura changes from cyan to white in certain scenes during "Weirdmageddon Part 1", this is finally corrected in "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls", where his aura is colored cyan.
  • Our Demons Are Different: At least some of them are demons (nightmare beings) like Bill, though others might be monsters from other dimensions.
  • Our Monsters Are Weird: They include: a goblin-like monster with billiard balls for eyes (8-Ball); a keyhole with arms and legs (Keyhole); a floating Masonic compass with limbs (Kryptos); a hexagon with arms, a mouth, and a mustache (Hectorgon); a fiery pink demoness with horns and one eye (Pyronica); a pair of false teeth with arms and legs (Teeth); a horned creature with a face on its torso which is sucking a pacifier chained to its leg (Paci-Fire); a huge, lumbering purple giant with a head resembling a loaf of bread (Zanthar); a non-Euclidean string of colored tiles (Amorphous Shape) and a lava lamp shaped creature (Lava Lamp Guy). As shown in "Escape from Reality", even Bill finds some of them so profoundly alien and nameless that he stumbles when trying to address them.
    Bill: Ladies! Gentlemen! That one creature with, like... 87 different faces!
    Grotesque Floating Cluster of Mutilated Heads: 88 different faces!
    Bill: Woah-ho, sorry! (Tugging on his bowtie) Touchy subject.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Pyronica, the sole female of the group, is pink.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: They act like a bunch of rebellious teenagers throwing a party when their parents aren't around, but are all positively ancient (probably about a trillion or so years old, assuming they're contemporaries of Bill Cipher).
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad: 8 Ball, Teeth, Keyhole, Xanthar and Pyronica.
  • Remember the New Guy?: After Bill introduces all of his friends, another demon who looks like a lava lamp with a mouth and a bowler hat appears out of nowhere. His name is: Lava Lamp Guy.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Or real men are pink. Teeth is male, but it's main color is pink.
  • The Scottish Trope: Zanthar is apparently one of these, but Bill doesn't care.
    Bill: The Being Whose Name Must Never Be Said! Ha ha, what the heck. It's Zanthar.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: After Bill is killed, they're still alive, but forced back to the Nightmare Realm.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Justified. Considering they're chaos beings.
    • Hectorgon is eaten by Pyronica in "Weirdmageddon Part 1", he still appears in "Weirdmageddon 2: Escape From Reality" and "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls", like if nothing happened, although he has a pink flame over his head during the beginning scene of "Weirdmageddon 2: Escape From Reality".
    • 8 Ball has his head petrified by Wendy in "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls". He reappears unscratched during a cameo in the tale "Don't Dimention It!" from "Gravity Falls: Lost Legends".
  • To Serve Man: Bill suggests that 8-Ball and Teeth should eat Dipper as a snack. 8-Ball is uncertain, but Teeth immediately gets on it. Teeth also eats one of the gnomes, though he ends up being spat back out later.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Pyronica is the only one among Bill's gang who is female; or, well, at least looks female. Don't forget Bill's dimension has 14 billion genders.
  • Villainous Friendship: Given their intense cruelty and immense power levels, they all get along surprisingly well with each other, even despite the occasional cannibalistic party game.
  • Walking Spoiler: They're impossible to talk about without revealing Bill's plans for Weirdmaggedon.
  • What Could Had Been:
    • The Henchmaniacs had discarded designs:
      • Zanthar was suppoused to have a castle in his back.
      • 8 Ball swapped between a goblin, human, troll, demon, ogre, until get his final design.
      • Pyronica was suppoused to be a gorgon and had blue flames.
      • Keyhole was planned to have green skin.
      • Teeth was planned to be mechanical, not organic, he had bolts in his mouth.
      • Paci-Fire went through many designs, different horn styles, he had planned ears and had the Zodiac, rather than a cross.
      • Hectorgon was an octagon.
      • Lava Lamp Guy was planned to have a fez and swapped between a large lava monster to a lava lamp monster.
      • Kryptos had a different style.
      • Amorphous Shape was grey with red eyes and a mouth.
    • Originally Paci-Fire was planned to have somewhat of a major role and was suppoused to tell Bill about the rift.
    • The unnamed lava lamp shaped creature's name would had been revelated (Lava Lamp Guy).
    • Bill would had killed 8 Ball.
    • Kryptos' beta name is Andrew.
    • Hectorgon's beta name is Hexagon.
    • Paci-Fire's beta name is Demonichus.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: They disappear at times, you'll never see the 10 together at the same time.
    • Hectorgon, Amorphous Shape and Lava Lamp Guy don't participate in the battle againist the Shacktron.
    • 8 Ball and Zanthar don't appear after the Shacktron battle, but it's obvious they were sucked off-screen.

    The Horrifying, Sweaty, One-Armed Monstrosity
Voiced by: Louis C.K. (original run), Alex Hirsch (later releases)

A massive human head with an arm growing out its top and no body, who wanders Gravity Falls trying to eat people.

  • Affably Evil: He's strangely direct about wanting to eat people, and seems to take no for an answer during the credits. Dipper's "rudeness" in trying to escape and ignoring him bothered him more than anything else.
  • Cephalothorax: With no body parts besides a head and an arm growing out its top, he qualifies.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: He's a human-eating monster, but when disappointed he plans to call his mother.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: His pathetic attempts to get someone to go in his mouth make it hard to hate him.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: With his bald head, red hair, and large nose, he looks very much like a monstrous Louis C.K.
  • Our Monsters Are Weird: A giant human face with an arm growing out of its top. WTF?
  • To Serve Man: He wants to eat people, though no one will get into his mouth when he asks. He only succeeds in eating an unlucky henchman from Gideon's prison gang.

Dippy Fresh voiced by: Matt Chapman
Judge Kitty Kitty Meow Meow Face Schwartzstein voiced by: Jon Stewart
Ernesto voiced by: Eric Bauza

Bill Cipher's most diabolical trap, where he placed Mabel after starting Weirdmageddon. The bubble creates whatever its tenants want the most, and since this is Mabel, it's the most zany place of all. Natives include Dippy-Fresh, a 'cooler' version of Dipper who likes skateboarding and supporting his sister, and Judge Kitty Kitty Meow Meow Face Schwartzstein, who presides over the trial of Fantasy vs Reality, and, well, every other crazy thing Mabel's imagined.

An otherworldly being invoked by Bill's (backward) final words, mentioned in several cryptograms in books published after the series proper concluded, and shown in an ambiguously canonical hidden page of Dipper and Mabel and the Curse of the Time Pirates' Treasure!
  • Always a Bigger Fish: It's implied to be much higher up the supernatural power scale than Bill is. This is best shown in how it speaks about him: it doesn't describe Bill as a fearsome dream demon, but rather a pathetic Sad Clown desperately trying to shirk the consequences of his actions.
  • Bargain with Heaven: Its deal with Bill is seemingly that he will be resurrected/reincarnated, but spend his new life paying for his misdeeds. It's a rare example that's exploitative toward the signatory, but still a good thing because he clearly deserves nothing better.
  • God Is Good: It's apparently the most powerful being known to exist, and seems generally benevolent, or at least very cordial to Dipper and Mabel (even giving them a seat in an "infinitely comfortable" bean bag chair). While it may have brought Bill Cipher Back from the Dead, it says it'll only do so that Bill may "absolve his crime", and seems to otherwise oppose Bill.
  • God's Hands Are Tied: It's more powerful than Bill and clearly resents his acts of destruction and cruelty, but doesn't take any action to stop him (at least, none that we know of).
  • I Never Told You My Name: A variant; when Dipper introduces himself by that name, the Axolotl slyly acknowledges that it already knows that's just a nickname.
  • In-Universe Nickname: Journal 3 has Bill referring to it as "The Big Frilly Know-it-all".
  • King of All Cosmos: A giant frilled amphibian, which is seemingly the in-universe equivalent to God.
  • Loose Canon: It's one actual appearance was in a book that was mostly non-canon (by necessity of being a choose-your-own-adventure book), but Hirsch has hinted Dipper and Mabel's meeting with it really was canon after all.
  • Meaningful Name: Bill calls out for the Axolotl as he's being killed by two pairs of twins. Axolotls are named after Xolotl, the Aztec god of (among other things) carrying the dead to the afterlife and of twins, being the twin brother of the more well known Quetzalcoatl.
  • Mysterious Past: Not much is known about it, but there's an implication that it and Bill have a history and don't like one another. In particular the Axolotl seems to have a very low opinion of Bill.
  • Oh My Gods!: Some of the cryptograms invoke its name in place of "God".
    Bumper sticker: The Axolotl is my co-pilot
    Bazaar graffiti: Where's you Axolotl now?
  • Place Beyond Time: Meets Dipper and Mabel in "the time and space between time and space".
  • Riddle for the Ages: Described by Alex Hirsch as an intentional loose end left to speculate about, whether or not he ever returns to the setting and follows up on it.
  • Spell My Name with a "The": Mostly referred to (and introduces itself) as "The Axolotl".
  • Summon Bigger Fish: Despite being a Reality Warper himself at the time, Bill calls out to it while dying, asking to return somehow. Considering the Axolotl seems equivalent to God, this overlaps with Prayer Is a Last Resort, and the Axolotl implies there will be a price to pay on his end for it.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: When asked about Bill, its description of him is less than flattering, describing him as a Sad Clown who refuses to ever admit his world's destruction is his own fault, and who will eventually try to shirk the consequences of his actions by calling on its name, which Bill ultimately does.
  • Walking Spoiler: Whatever relevance it does or does not have, it's hard to discuss without mentioning Bill's death.

    The Beasts
From left to right: The Lake Beast, the Earth Beast, and the Fire Beast
A trio of monstrous beings that have stolen the gemulets from the Gnome Kingdom for some unknown nefarious purpose. Jeff assigns Dipper and Mabel with the task of retrieving the gemulets from these foul creatures. In actuality, the beasts have been guarding the gemulets for eons in order to prevent the ancient evil entity known as Gremularth from reemerging. Jeff simply wanted the gemulets so that he could harness Gremularth's power, but he was too lazy and unimposing to steal them himself, so he tricked the twins into doing it for him.
  • Berserk Button: The Fire Beast reacts poorly to his Exposition Dump being compared to the plot of a 90's animated movie.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Parodied. When Dipper asks the Fire Beast for his help in battling Dark Jeff, the Beast turns him down, saying that he is weak without his powers. Never mind that even without the Gemulets, the Beasts are still hulking minotaurs that look like they could snap a grown man in half like a twig.
  • Good All Along: The player is led to believe that The Beasts are wicked evildoers, when in fact they are peaceful guardians who are trying to prevent Gravity Falls from descending into darkness once more. The Fire Beast in particular is quite the affable fellow.
  • The Quiet One: It is initially unclear whether they are even capable of speech. During his meeting with Dipper and Mabel in the midst of Dark Jeff's reign, the Fire Beast turns out to be rather talkative and friendly. He claims that he simply has a tendency to go into go into a "blind, incoherent rage" when protecting the gemulets. What the excuse is for the other Beasts is unclear.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: The Earth and Lake Beasts completely disappear from the narrative after their boss battles. Similarly, the Fire Beast is never seen again after his meeting with the twins, although he at least gives an answer as to what he will be doing while waiting for them to save the day: playing board games. There's still the question of what they will do now that their services are no longer required in guarding the Gemulets.

Winged Mooks who serve the Beasts.
  • Airborne Mook: They possess wings and attack from above.
  • Good All Along: They were only serving the Beasts in their duty to guard the gemulets.
  • Punny Name: Spelled out in the Journal: "Hocks up disgusting pellets and spits them at you.

Creeping Totem on the left, Flaming Totem on the right.
Mooks who serve the Beasts. Alongside the Hawkers, they serve as the main non-boss enemies in Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets. They come into types, the Creeping Totems who patrol the woodland floor, and the stationary Flaming Totems.
  • Animate Inanimate Object: The Journal describes the Flaming Totems as living campfires, while the Creeping Totems are said to be "cursed wood carvings".
  • Brain Washed And Crazy: In the back half of the game, they wind up under the influence of Dark Jeff's magical powers.
  • Good All Along: Like the Hawkers, they were merely serving their masters in an ultimately benevolent cause.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: The Creeping Totems' faces are clearly meant to be reminiscent of squirrel's, while their legs appear to be tentacles like those on a cephalopod.
  • Mooks: Serve as this for most of the game, initially working for the Beasts, and later for Dark Jeff.
  • Playing with Fire: The Flaming Totems attack by shooting a column of fire into the air.

    Mr. What's-His-Face
A shadowy, face-stealing monster Pacifica summoned in an ill-advised attempt to get rid of facial wrinkles.

    Cursed Comic Books 
A pile of comic books given sapience and magic power when shoved into Stanford's cursed chest.

    Alternate Mabels 
A collection of alternate-dimension Mabels that fell through the Nightmare Realm, into a obscure corner now called "Dimension MAB-3L".
  • Alternate Self: All different versions of Mabel.
  • Animate Inanimate Object: The alternate Mabels include Table Mabel, Lightbulb Mabel, a mace with Mabel's face, a Mabel who's a sweater with a face on it, and a Mabel that resembles a television set.
  • Elemental Embodiment: Flamabel is a Mabel whose body is made of fire.
  • Other Me Annoys Me: Mabel can't stand her alternate counterparts' obnoxious, short-sighted behavior.
  • Skewed Priorities: The main reason why the alternate Mabels weren't able to find a way back to their home dimensions is because they're too preoccupied with their various quirks.
  • Stock Dinosaurs: Two of Mabel's alternate counterparts are a Tyrannosaurus Rex and a Pterodactyl.

    Jersey Devil
A cryptid Stanford and Stanley encountered in their youth in Glass Shard Beach, New Jersey.
  • Diabolus ex Nihilo: A cryptogram states it fell out of a rift straight into the Pine Barrens.
  • The Jersey Devil: Has most of the traditional traits: horns, hooves, bat wings, and a vaguely humanoid shape. It also breathes fire. True to its name, it's one of the few monsters seen outside of Gravity Falls.


How well does it match the trope?
