List of Gravity Falls characters
(Redirected from Bill Cipher)Jump to navigation Jump to search
- Dipper Pines (voiced by Jason Ritter) – The 12-year-old twin brother of Mabel Pines, born 5 minutes after Mabel. He is armed with the journal marked "3" that he discovered in the woods. It has helped him solve the countless mysteries of Gravity Falls. As an adventurer, Dipper has trouble sitting still and is always looking for the next riddle to solve, leaving him restless in mundane situations. His attention to detail seems to be helpful when solving mysteries, but others question his credibility because of his zeal. He is considered to be wise beyond his years and cannot wait to grow up and become a man. Portrayed as goal-oriented and rooted in the facts, he sometimes overthinks possible scenarios and obsessively makes lists, which also makes him much more perceptive to the real danger Gravity Falls faces. Between seasons, Dipper hosted a series titled "Dipper's Guide to the Unexplained". It is revealed in one of the episodes that Dipper has a crush on Wendy. While he knows in his heart that he will never really be Wendy's boyfriend, that does not stop him from doing everything in his power to please her. In another episode it is revealed that he likes bubblegum pop music. He got his nickname from a birthmark on his forehead that is shaped like the Big Dipper. His formal name was never revealed during the series, but was later revealed to be Mason in the release of Journal 3.
- Mabel Pines (voiced by Kristen Schaal) - The 12-year-old twin sister of Dipper Pines, born 5 minutes before Dipper. Mabel is an eccentric, buoyant, and energetic optimist, who expresses herself through an assortment of colorful knitted sweaters, as well as her skills in various arts and crafts. Her outgoing, curious personality often helps Dipper solve mysteries, though her silliness is often seen as a burden. Mabel enjoys preteen novels and seeks romance (especially in vampires). Despite what she sees as dating obscurity in Gravity Falls, Mabel stays optimistic. She once went out on a date with Li'l Gideon, but broke it off quickly when she realized that Gideon was dangerous and nearly killed her brother. In the episode "Irrational Treasure", she is made an official U.S. congresswoman by the eighth-and-a-half president, Quentin Trembley, with a political platform of "legalize everything". She wins a pet pig in the episode "The Time Traveler's Pig" and names it Waddles. She also makes guest appearances in "Dipper's Guide to the Unexplained", but has her own series titled "Mabel's Guide to Life". Both of these shows aired in between seasons. Mabel is inspired by Alex Hirsch's own twin sister, Ariel.
- Grunkle Stan (voiced by Alex Hirsch as an adult and Declan J. Krogman as a child) – The great uncle of Dipper and Mabel Pines, best characterized by his selfishness and abrasiveness. He runs and lives in the Mystery Shack, a tourist trap which is billed as "the world's most bizarre museum". Grunkle Stan is a salesman first and foremost, putting most of his effort into showmanship, and is eager to sell the Shack's knick-knacks, trinkets and baubles for exorbitant prices. Because of his drive to make money, his methods of obtaining it aren't always legal. When he's not making money, he's usually at home watching television. Stan usually wears a fez (the symbol on it is a Pac-Man fish which has changed over the episodes), carries around an 8-ball topped cane, and infrequently wears an eyepatch over his glasses – the last of which is expressly for personal image. He frequently sends the twins on what they consider to be outrageous and unpredictable errands, but he is protective of them and loves them unconditionally. Despite his age and questionable physique, Stan is physically fit to the point of being able to fight back when threatened, even against zombies and pterodactyls. Behind his vending machine, he has a hidden staircase to an unknown location. In the season 1 finale, this location is revealed to contain a large hidden device which is powered by encrypted information in the three journals. Stan has the first journal, Li'l Gideon had the second and Dipper has the third. Later on, he collects all three after Li'l Gideon's arrest and when Dipper shows him the third one. He later returns the third journal back to Dipper. As revealed in "Not What He Seems", he was attempting to get his twin brother back from another dimension. To defeat Bill in the series finale, Stan sacrifices his memory, but regains it after seeing Mabel's scrapbook. He has been going by the name Stanford Pines, the name of his twin brother, and his real name is Stanley. He is based on Alex Hirsch's grandfather Stan.
- Jesus Alzamirano "Soos" Ramirez (voiced by Alex Hirsch) is the 22-year-old Hispanic handyman at the Mystery Shack. A friend of Dipper and Mabel, Soos is a portly, adventurous, lovable man-child with buck teeth frequently compared to those of a beaver. He often drives the twins around town when they need. He's rather clumsy, not the brightest in the group, and often makes mistakes. Despite this, he has a wide variety of talents, including engineering, DJ-ing and pinball, and enjoys anime gun-swords and bonding with Dipper by doing "boy stuff" such as heating hot dogs in a microwave until they explode. He says "dude" after almost every sentence. In "Blendin's Game", his birthday was revealed to be July 13. It was also revealed he didn't have a good father-son relationship with his dad. At the end of the series, after Ford and Stan leave Gravity Falls behind, Soos becomes the new Mr. Mystery of the Mystery Shack. After breaking up with his dating sim girlfriend .GIFfany, Soos enters a long-distance relationship with a girl from Portland named Melody, who moves to Gravity Falls and becomes the Mystery Shack's new cashier after he takes over. Hirsch based the character on Jesus Chambrot, an animator he was friends with at CalArts. Hirsch emulates Jesus' "blunt-like consonance" way of speaking through Soos' voice.
- Wendy Corduroy (voiced by Linda Cardellini) – A mellow, tomboyish, laid-back 15-year-old part-time employee at the Mystery Shack. She is Dipper's crush, and several episodes focus on his misguided attempts to impress her. Wendy has stated that she had many boyfriends in the past, including one ex-boyfriend with whom she cannot remember breaking up. Wendy is the oldest and tallest child in her family; her father is Manly Dan, one of the local lumberjacks of Gravity Falls. Throughout the series she proves herself to be her "father's daughter", having experience as a lumberjack, tremendous physical strength, and apocalypse survival skills, which prove useful in dangerous situations. Being a typical sociable and nonchalant teen, she has many friends who are around her age. Her boyfriend at the start of the series is Robbie, whom Dipper despises and sees as a rival until she breaks up with him. Wendy almost always stands up for Dipper in front of Robbie.
- Stanford Filbrick "Ford" Pines (also known as The Author and Grunkle Ford as of the episode "The Last Mabelcorn"; voiced by J. K. Simmons as an adult and by Christian Mardini as a child) – Stan's six-fingered long-lost identical twin brother and the mysterious person who wrote all three of the journals. He returns from an alternate dimension through a portal underneath the Mystery Shack in "Not What He Seems" after being absent since 1982. In "The Last Mabelcorn", he recounts his friendship with Bill Cipher and how he attempted to create a teleporter to enter his realm. In the present, when he learns of Bill's plan to invade the mainstream dimension, he destroys the teleporter, but at the cost of a dimensional rift leaking out of it, which he contains. In "Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future", Bill tricks Mabel into releasing the rift, causing Weirdmageddon. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1" he attempts to defeat Bill, but is captured, petrified and his journals are destroyed. He is later freed and restored of his humanity. After Weirdmageddon, he tells Stan that he found some remaining anomalies and offers him to go sailing around the world to find them, which Stan accepts.
- Waddles (voiced by Dee Bradley Baker; Neil deGrasse Tyson in "Little Gift Shop of Horrors") – Mabel's pet pig. She won Waddles at the fair, and ever since then the two have been inseparable. It is shown that Waddles enjoys spending time with Mabel just as much as she enjoys spending time with him. In "Summerween", Waddles allows Mabel to dress him up as a businessman and take humorously captioned pictures of him in the style of "lolcat" internet memes and bursts from Stan's shirt. Waddles and Mabel are shown to be inseparable, and Mabel has been known to cry when they're separated.
- Candy Chiu and Grenda Grendinator (voiced by Niki Yang and Carl Faruolo, respectively) – Mabel's best friends whom she first met at a party hosted by the Mystery Shack. Candy and Grenda are both considered unpopular by Pacifica Northwest and her more sociable friends because they have flaws: Candy is shy, insecure, and does some strange things, such as taping forks to her fingers as an "improvement of human being"; while Grenda is physically robust, likes lizards, and speaks with a deep, gruff, masculine voice she attributes to puberty. Mabel sees these qualities as endearing and thus finds two kindred spirits in Gravity Falls. The girls love Waddles as much as Mabel does, taking pictures of him on Candy's phone in the episode "Summerween". They have many things in common with Mabel, such as their love of paranormal, romance novels, preteen magazines, and the 1990s-style boy band Sev'ral Timez. Although Grenda originally had no last name, it was suggested to Alex Hirsch by a fan of the show on Tumblr that her last name should be "Grendinator", and Hirsch pronounced it canon.
- Fiddleford Hadron "Old Man" McGucket (voiced by Alex Hirsch) – The "local kook" of Gravity Falls. Despite his apparent insanity and stereotypical hillbilly demeanor, Old Man McGucket is both a technical mastermind, capable of creating massive, complex animatronics (such as a robotic sea monster or a homicidal robot dinosaur) and a skilled chemist, to the point he was able to create a formula to alter a human's voice. His son works as a ranger at the lake, and the two seem to have a strained relationship, which adds to McGucket's insanity and need for attention. It is revealed "Society of the Blind Eye" that his full name is Fiddleford Hadron McGucket. Some of his backstory is revealed in "Society of the Blind Eye" and "A Tale of Two Stans": he was once a Steve Jobs/Bill Gates-style computer developer in 70s Palo Alto before being called in by Stanford Pines to work on his trans-dimensional portal. Upon accidentally entering the portal and glimpsing the other side, he was so overcome with horror that he invented a machine to allow him to forget the experience. Over time, he founded the Society of the Blind Eye to protect the people of Gravity Falls from the various monsters and anomalies by forcing them to forget their existence. Eventually, his overuse of the machine on his own mind drove him insane. Dipper and Mabel find this machine (along with the memories of the townspeople) and give Fiddleford back his memories, restoring his sanity. In "Weirdmageddon pt. 3: Take Back the Falls", he assists the Pines in saving Ford by transforming the Mystery Shack into a giant robotic mech. He later moves into the Northwest Mansion. Journal 3 reveals he created the Memory Gun after being attacked by a Gremloblin, and created the Society of the Blind Eye to erase bad memories. Being sucked into the portal started his overuse of the Memory Gun and descent into insanity.
- Sheriff Daryl Blubs (voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson) – The sheriff of Roadkill County (the county that Gravity Falls is located in). He is shown to be rather lazy, often choosing to sit around and drink coffee instead of pursuing a case. Despite his apparent lack of police skills, he believes himself superior to all, and often looks down on the twins, which undermines their mystery-solving abilities. His lazy personality seems to stem from the extremely low crime rate in Gravity Falls, which is demonstrated when Deputy Durland once comments on how unused their equipment is. In the series finale he expresses his love for Deputy Durland.
- Deputy Edwin Durland (voiced by Keith Ferguson) – A police officer, Sheriff Blubs' partner and right-hand man. He is shown to be unintelligent and childlike where he cannot even read. Sheriff Blubs, however, seems to find these qualities endearing, and refers to him as a "diamond in the rough". Instead of "doing their duties," he and Sheriff Blubs like to joke around, ignoring their duty for the sake of having fun. In the end-credits scene of "Blendin's Game", it is revealed that in 2002, he used to work as a handyman at the Mystery Shack but due to his unreliability and clumsiness, Stan harshly fired him and replaced him with a 12-year old Soos (this probably took place before he met his dearest friend Sheriff Blubs). In "Weirdmageddon Part 1" Durland is among the citizens of Gravity falls who are petrified by Bill's eye bats. At the end of Weirdmaggedon, he is restored to being human and reunited with Blubs. In the series finale he expresses his love for Sheriff Blubs.
- Gompers the Goat (voiced by Frank Welker) – A stray goat who lives in the forest near the Mystery Shack. Gompers frequently enters the Mystery Shack uninvited and unannounced. He often annoys other characters, as he gets in the way of simple tasks.
- Bill Cipher (voiced by Alex Hirsch) – Bill Cipher is a powerful, interdimensional dream demon that can be summoned and released into a person's mind. He resembles a one-eyed, yellow triangle with a top hat and a bow tie, superficially similar to the Eye of Providence. Bill first appears physically in "Dreamscaperers;" however, many references to him are hidden in previous episodes as images or sentences that flash across the screen. He has a snappy sense of humor but loses his temper quite easily due to impatience. He can read people's minds and memories, shift forms, warp reality, maintain cross-dimensional awareness, possess bodies, encrypt and decrypt codes, and shoot laser energy blasts from his eye and fingers. In "Dreamscaperers," Li'l Gideon summons Bill to steal Stan's deed to the Mystery Shack. The two of them agree that if Bill goes into Stan's mind and steals the combination to the safe where the deed is hidden, Gideon will eventually have to help Bill with his mysterious plans. Bill claims he could use Dipper, Mabel, and Soos against the "darkness coming", though he could've said this to throw them off his true plans. In the episode "Sock Opera" he tricks Dipper into making a deal with him, and briefly possesses Dipper's body until Mabel fights him at the puppet show and forces him out. In "Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future" he possesses Blendin' in order to release a dimensional rift to escape into the mainstream dimension. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1" he creates a physical form to freely exist in the human dimension without possessing anyone, unleashes various monsters from his home dimension, takes over Gravity Falls, and begins to capture and petrify those who stand in his way, even going to the point of breaking Gideon out of prison and making him Sheriff. In "Weirdmageddon Part 2" he realizes that an invisible force field is disabling him from taking over other parts of the world. In "Weirdmageddon Part 3", He tries to get Ford to tell him how to disable the force field and take Weirdmaggedon worldwide, but Ford never cooperates. He is apparently destroyed for good by Stan, who tricks him by pretending to be Ford and letting Bill enter his mind to get the formula, allowing the real Ford to erase him from existence using the memory gun, leaving behind his petrified body. However, his distorted last words, when played in reverse, are revealed to be "A-X-O-L-O-T-L, my time has come to burn! I invoke the ancient power that I may return!" Journal 3 reveals that Bill came from an second dimension which he destroyed in his thirst for power, and took over the Nightmare Realm. He planned to take over Earth because the Nightmare Realm was inherently unstable and would eventually collapse in on itself. His name may be either a pun on the Beale ciphers or a reference to the Eye of Providence that appears on the dollar bill. Film director David Lynch was asked to voice Bill, but declined. Alex voices the character with what he calls a "bad impression" of Lynch as his Twin Peaks character, Gordon Cole.
- Gideon Charles Gleeful / "Li'l Gideon" (voiced by Thurop Van Orman) – Li'l Gideon is a young boy who owns the "Tent of Telepathy", a successful competitor of the Mystery Shack, and is instantly identifiable with his spoken Southern accent and massive, white pompadour hairstyle. He has a deep rivalry with Grunkle Stan that presumably started long before the twins arrived. Despite his cutesy and charming personality onstage, in reality he is conniving, vicious and more than willing to hurt or even kill whoever he wants to get his way; on more than one occasion he has even abused his own parents, threatening his father and apparently having reduced his mother to a nervous wreck some time ago. He also has an unhealthy obsession with Mabel, and his belief that Dipper and Stan are the only things keeping them apart, prevent him from seeing that Mabel doesn't like him at all. He previously owned an amulet that endowed him with telekinesis, but it was destroyed by Mabel after he attempted to use it to kill Dipper. It is shown that he owned the journal marked 2, the previous volume of the journal Dipper owned. He seems to be one of the only residents who is fully aware of the mysteries and secrets of Gravity Falls. Li'l Gideon's mission is to gain possession of the Mystery Shack, saying that it has 'a secret you couldn't possibly begin to imagine.' In the Season 1 finale, Stan successfully reveals to the townspeople that Li'l Gideon's psychic ability is a ruse and that Li'l Gideon is a fraud. Li'l Gideon is arrested by Sheriff Blubs shortly thereafter, although he quickly managed to turn his fellow inmates into more of his followers. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1" he and his fellow inmates escape from prison (due to a supersized Gompers eating the prison walls) and are made Bill's police force and guardians of a prison bubble Mabel is put in. After attempting to capture Dipper, Wendy and Soos, Dipper manages to convince Gideon that Mabel never loved him and Gideon has a change of heart and decides to rebel against Bill. In "Weirdmageddon pt. 3: Take Back the Falls", he is revealed to have been captured by Bill, trapped in a cage and forced to dance for eternity, but he is freed after he tells Dipper and Mabel how to restore the humanity of the citizens Bill petrified. After Bill's defeat, he officially gives up his life of crime and tries to live life as a normal kid (although his fellow inmates still hurt those who make fun of him).
- Pacifica Elise Northwest (voiced by Jackie Buscarino) – Pacifica is the most popular girl in Gravity Falls. She comes from a wealthy family, being the great-great-granddaughter of the supposed founder of Gravity Falls, Nathaniel Northwest – the real founder of Gravity Falls being Quentin Trembley (8 1/2th President of the United States). Pacifica is an unfriendly, sarcastic, and spoiled girl who is Mabel's primary rival. Pacifica looks down on Mabel and thinks her eccentric personality is annoying and immature. She uses people's insecurities to manipulate them into doing whatever she wants and despises Mabel for standing up against her. She gets her comeuppance when Dipper reveals to her that her entire family's prestige is built on a lie, horrifying Pacifica. In the episode "The Golf War", she turns into Mabel's friend after she and Mabel thwart the Lilliputtians. Also, in the episode "Northwest Mansion Mystery," it is shown that she is afraid of standing up to her parents and disappointing them. Later though, she finds out all of the terrible things her family has done, she proves herself to be different from her family by defying her parents and opening up the Northwest Mansion gates to commoners (mostly to save Dipper). After this same episode both Pacifica and Dipper greatly improve their attitudes towards each other, and turned from almost strangers to friends. In "Weirdmageddon pt. 3: Take Back the Falls", Pacifica takes refuge in the Mystery Shack with several of the remaining un-petrified citizens of Gravity Falls, with most of Gravity Falls in chaos as a result of Weirdmageddon, and she teams up with the Pines (due to Bill petrifying her parents) to defeat Bill. By the end of the series, she is good friends with the Pines family, even Mabel. Her name is a pun on Pacific Northwest, given the town of Gravity Falls is located in Oregon. In the graphic novel "Gravity Falls: Lost Legends", it is revealed that she was convinced that her appearance is important as a child througth her mother's conviction (such as when her mother read her The Ugly Duckling right until the point in which the title character is mocked for his appearance), which led her to believe that she must be beautiful to be accepted, througth she learns that she must be herself to be accepted while talking with Dipper.
- Robert Stacey "Robbie" Valentino (voiced by T.J. Miller) – A local emo rock music-loving teenager who is Dipper's primary rival for Wendy's affections. He is angsty and has a cynical attitude toward most characters. Though he seems to genuinely care for Wendy, he is still sometimes inconsiderate, such as neglecting to listen to Wendy while playing a video game in the episode "Fight Fighters". Robbie and Wendy are a couple until "Boyz Crazy", in which Dipper informs Wendy that the song Robbie wrote for her has a backmasked mind-controlling message, although Wendy is most upset that the song wasn't written for her. After the breakup, Robbie seems greatly upset about losing her, though his attempts to win her back only cause her to stay annoyed with him. In the episode "The Love God", Robbie begins a relationship with Tambry, one of Wendy's friends. His parents are both undertakers, though their personalities are the polar opposite of their son's, possibly due to their work with the dead. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1", Robbie is among the citizens of Gravity falls who are captured and petrified by Bill's minions (Wendy states that this was because he stopped to take a selfie). He is rescued in "Weirdmageddon 3", and continues to unenthusiastically aid in his family's business.
- Buddy "Bud" Gleeful (voiced by Stephen Root) – Li'l Gideon's polite and well-meaning father. Despite having a nervous wife and a manipulative child, Bud seems to always find ways to make money, even to the point of becoming allies with Grunkle Stan (Li'l Gideon's mortal enemy) for a business deal. Besides working at Li'l Gideon's "Tent of Telepathy", Bud also sells used cars. He was also a member of the Society of the Blind Eye, and was spotted in the past in the episode "Blendins Game", pushing a stroller with Gideon in it. In the episode "The Stanchurian Candidate", he runs for mayor of Gravity Falls, mostly being forced by Li'l Gideon so he could get him out of jail. This attempt is unsuccessful. He makes two brief appearances in the series finale: he is first seen using Gideon plushies to make a fire, then as a guest at Dipper and Mabel's birthday party.
- Preston and Priscilla Northwest – Preston (voiced by Nathan Fillion) and his wife, Priscilla (voiced by Kari Wahlgren) are Pacifica Northwest's wealthy and apparently snobby parents. Most of the time, Preston places heavy stress on Pacifica to ensure she maintains their family's image of perfection. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1", Preston has the unlucky fate of being the first citizen in Gravity Falls to be victimized by Bill. He attempts to become one of Bill's minions only for Bill to switch around Preston's facial features (much to the horror of Priscilla and Pacifica). In pt. 3, it is revealed that both Preston and Priscilla were petrified by Bill's minions, but they are later restored to being human. However, they also go broke due to Preston investing all of his money towards Bill and at the end of the series, they are forced to sell their mansion to regain back their fortune, which happens when Fiddleford McGucket buys it. In Gravity Falls: Lost Legends, it is revealed that Priscilla is a trophy wife (litellary as, according to Pacifica, Preston won her in a yachting competition).
- The Gnomes (voiced by Alex Hirsch) – The Gnomes appear in the first episode, where they capture Mabel Pines to try to make her their queen, saved by Dipper. They appear as garden gnomes with pointed red caps and white beards, although they often run on all fours and have sharp teeth. The leader, Jeff, has sworn vengeance on the twins, but has yet to wreak it. Two of the gnomes, Shmebulock and his father, Shmebulock Sr., can only communicate by saying their names. The twins call on the gnomes later in the series to help take down a common enemy, but failed as Gideon forces them to carry them away.
- Agent Powers and Agent Trigger (voiced by Nick Offerman and Brad Abrell) – Agent Powers and Agent Trigger are agents of the US government. They went to Gravity Falls to investigate paranormal activity in the area. After Dipper raises the dead, the two are seen dragged off by zombies into a ditch. They later reappear alive at the end of the episode and are sure that Gravity Falls is the town they are looking for. In many episodes, they are secretly watching the Pines family, like in the background sitting in seats during the episode Sock Opera behind large newspapers, as well as in the after credits of Northwest Mansion Mystery, talking about a power surge they measured during the party. They appear again in Not What He Seems, where they arrest Grunkle Stan over suspicions that he is building a doomsday weapon. At the end of A Tale Of Two Stans, they (along with the rest of the government agents in their team investing the Mystery Shack) lose their memories of the portal due to the fact that Stanford used the Society of the Blindeye device to erase their memories.
- Tambry (voiced by Jessica DiCicco) – Tambry is one of Wendy's friends. She has dyed hair and rarely looks up from her phone, either texting or updating her status. As of the episode "The Love God", she is in a relationship with Robbie. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1", she is among the citizens of Gravity Falls who are captured and petrified by Bill's minions. She is later restored to being human at the end of the series.
- Lee and Nate (voiced by Michael Rianda and Scott Menville) – Wendy's friends. The two of them are usually seen together. Lee has blond hair and wears a red shirt, while Nate wears a cap and a black shirt. They both act like stereotypical, sarcastic, care-free teenagers. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1", they are among the citizens of Gravity Falls who are captured and petrified by Bill's minions. They are both restored to being human at the end of the series.
- Xyler and Craz (voiced by John Roberts (actor) and Greg Cipes) – The main characters of Mabel's favorite movie "Dream Boy High".
- Leon Thompson (voiced by Michael Rianda) – Thompson is one of Wendy's friends. He is usually seen participating in the games the guys play, such as putting ice in his pants and trying to shoot a jelly bean into his navel. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1", he is among the citizens who are captured and petrified by Bill's minions. He is restored to being human at the end of the series.
- "Lazy" Susan Wentworth (voiced by Jennifer Coolidge) – The sluggish waitress at the local restaurant Greasy's Diner. She is shown to love fixing things, despite not being at all skilled. Her name is a pun on her lazy eye, as well as a kitchen device she was trying to fix. She has several cats, three of which are named Donald, Sandy, and Mr. Cat-Face. Grunkle Stan had a crush on her, and eventually works up the nerve to win her over with Mabel's help but regrets it after she calls him repeatedly leaving unusual voice messages. She is shown to be scatterbrained in the episode "Summerween", when she categorically fails to guess what costumes Soos, Mabel, and Mabel's friends wear. As revealed in "A Tale of Two Stans", her constantly closed eye was caused by her accidentally touching one of Ford's inventions on the first Mystery Shack tour. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1", she is among the citizens who are captured and petrified by Bill's minions. She is restored to being human at the end of the series.
- Toby Determined (voiced by Gregg Turkington) – A journalist for the Gravity Falls Gossiper. He is a hard-hitting yet wimpy journalist, shown to be terrible at his job – an example is that in one episode, he tried to use a turkey baster as a microphone and a cinder block as a camera. He has an unrequited crush on local TV news reporter Shandra Jimenez which goes to such an extent that he has a cardboard-cutout of her in his closet and flirts with it when alone, as shown in the episode "Headhunters." He finally gets to work with Shandra Jimenez after Weirdmageddon concludes and after he wears punk clothes and adopts the name "Bodacious T". His name is a pun on "to be determined," said when information in a news story is currently unavailable.
- Sir Lord Quentin Trembley III Esquire (voiced by Alex Hirsch) – The 8th and a half President of the United States who never finished his term after eating a salamander and jumping out of a window. After winning the 1837 election in a literal landslide, he quickly became known for being the silliest president in the United States where he waged war on pancakes, legalized marriage with woodpeckers, appointed six babies to the Supreme Court, issued the de-pantsipation proclamation, and declared in his State of the Union address, "The only thing we have to fear is gigantic, man-eating spiders!" Quentin is the true founder of Gravity Falls, but was replaced by local nobody Nathaniel Northwest (Pacifica's ancestor) as Quentin was seen as an embarrassment. He was found preserved in peanut brittle by the twins on their way to Washington D.C. after being captured by Blubs and Durland. After being freed by the twins, he gave Dipper his President's Key (which can open any lock in America made before 1877) and made Mabel a US congresswoman.
- Blendin Blenjamin Blandin (voiced by Justin Roiland) – Blendin Blenjamin Blandin is a time traveler from the year 207̃012 (pronounced twenty-sñeventy-twelve) who was sent back in time to Gravity Falls to remove a set of time anomalies that Mabel and Dipper assume they started. He makes a full appearance in 'Time Traveler's Pig', but has made cameo appearances in episodes 1, 2, 3, and 20, cleaning up the time anomalies. A board on the closed-up shack on Glass Shard Beach that Stanley and Stanford went into has "Blendin was here" scribbled onto it. In the episode "Blendin's Game" he competes with the twins in a game called "Globnar" in order to get revenge on the twins for getting him arrested, by way of a "time wish", allowing one paradox-free wish to the holder, but he loses the final game of laser tag. It is suggested that he will no longer be a villain after the episode "Blendin's Game" when Dipper and Mabel actually helped him get his job back and gave him pretty hair. In "Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future" he is possessed by Bill Cipher so that he can release the dimensional rift. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1", upon realizing his possession, Blendin goes to gain help from his fellow time travelers only for Bill to kill all of them and for Blendin to escape to an unknown place as the sole survivor.
- The Time Baby (voiced by Dave Wittenberg) – The Time Baby is a giant, deep-voiced, all-powerful infant with ultimate control over time and space. He is also the ruler of the future as of the year 207̃012 and game master for the game tournament "Globnar." His origins are mostly unknown, but it is known that he was found frozen in an iceberg, which eventually melted and set him free on the future world. The Time Baby possesses powers such as laser vision, flight, omniscience, and time manipulation. He appears to have some connection to Bill Cipher as evidenced by clues hidden throughout the series as well as the Bill Cipher Reddit AMA. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1", he is "killed" by Bill. However, the official Journal 3 published by Alex; in a letter by Blendin (explaining how Bill took his body) says that it will take him (the Baby) 1000 years to regenerate again & when he gets back he'll be absolutely mad, so he's not exactly dead. In the short "Mailbox" Dipper asks about the end of the world, the reply is 3012, which will be 1000 years after the Baby's "death" so he might be the one who causes the end of everything.
- "Manly Dan" Corduroy (voiced by John DiMaggio) – The strong lumberjack and father of Wendy and three sons. Manly Dan is unstable and has serious anger issues, often punching or destroying objects when angry, but enjoys family bonding activities such as fishing on the lake. Manly Dan hangs out at Skull Fracture, a local biker joint in downtown Gravity Falls. He is also good friends with Tyler the Cute Biker. In "Weirdmageddon 2: Escape from Reality", he is among the citizens who are captured and petrified by Bill's minions. He is restored to being human at the end of the series.
- Tyler the Cute Biker (voiced by Will Forte) – Tyler Cutebiker (known as Tyler the Cute Biker) is a slim, well-groomed biker. He appears to be rather childlike and effeminate, and he is well known for showing up in crowd scenes saying his catchphrase, "Get 'em! Get 'em!". He's also an enthusiasm enthusiast. He tends to be indecisive, especially when deciding between shirts with big cats on them, and is a frequent visitor of the Mystery Shack. In "The Stanchurian Candidate", he is elected mayor of Gravity Falls due to being the only candidate to fill in his paperwork. In the series finale, it is revealed that he is among the citizens of Gravity Falls to be petrified by Bill's minions.
