This a list of unseen characters who exist within Gravity Falls, but have not properly appeared in the series.

Auldman Northwest

Auldman "Old Man" Northwest was the father of Preston Northwest, grandson of Nathaniel Northwest, and the grandfather of Pacifica Northwest. He was the patriarch to the late 20th century. During his investigation of the Northwests' fraudulence, Ford Pines attempted an interview with Auldman, but was forcefully removed from the family's grounds before he could get the chance.


Beatrice is/was a woman who once slapped Stan Pines ("Grunkle Stan") for "being a cad."[1]

Boy in blue's mother

The unnamed boy in blue cries for her upon seeing Bear-O.[2]

Gnome Queen

The Gnome Queen was the original queen of the Gnomes. She was, however, eaten by a badger.

Cat lady's son

The cat lady's son is a man who fails to keep in contact with his mother, as correctly assumed by Gideon Gleeful in his performance.[3]

Cathy Crenshaw

Cathy Crenshaw was a girl who attended one of Stanford's schools when Stanford was younger. She is only mentioned in Journal 3 with the section mentioning her having a red line crossed through it and in one of Bill's encrypted messages, which stated that she screamed when Ford tried to hold her hand due to his six fingers. She is also mentioned when Ford describes his encounter with a category 9 ghost, implying he's had nightmares with her in it.


Daniel is a guard at the Gravity Falls Maximum Security Prison. He gives Gideon Gleeful new issues of Preacher's Digest in return for bribes.[4]

Deputy Durland's grandmother

Deputy Durland's grandmother is the deceased grandmother of Deputy Durland, whom he mentions seeing when Manly Dan's bear-hug nearly suffocates him.[5]

Dr. Northwest

Portrait of Dr. Northwest hidden along with the other Northwest paintings.

Dr. Northwest was a mad scientist who lived sometime between the 19th and 20th centuries. He is an ancestor of the modern Northwest family.[6]

Emma-May Dixon

Emma-May Dixon (formerly Emma-May McGucket)[7] is Tate McGucket's mother and the ex-wife of Fiddleford McGucket. When she left her former husband, he built a "homicidal pterodactyl-tron."[8] She is seen in a photo with Tate in Gravity Falls: Journal 3, but her face is left partially obscured.

Dundgren's children

Dundgren's children are mentioned when their father states what he would do with a time wish: retire early to spend more time with them.[9]


A picture of Ernie.

Ernie was a friend of Old Man McGucket, who prompted the unstable inventor to build a shame-bot after he failed to show up at McGucket's retirement party.[8]

Sandy Trembley

Sandy Trembley was the third wife of Quentin Trembley back in the 17th century. She is mentioned when he and the Pines Twins try to get out of the wooden box while hearing a woodpecker, Quentin thinks it sounds like her (implying that she may have been one too).


Gam-Gam is Lolph's great, great, great, great, great, grandmother from the past. Mabel tricks Lolph into thinking that she was her while Dipper steals his time tape.

.GIFfany's creators

S2e5 I don't understand!.png

.GIFfany's creators were the various programmers of the game Romance Academy 7. When programming the game the character .GIFfany eventually gained sentience. The programmers unsuccessfully attempted to delete her, and in response, she "deleted" them.[10]

Grenda's mother

Grenda's mother is mentioned when her daughter first meets Mabel. Grenda called her mother about having a sleepover with her new friend.[11] In "Carpet Diem," Grenda brings one of her mother's "age-inappropriate" romance novels to a sleepover.[12]

Jack Solomon

Jack Solomon is the owner of the Abandoned Mines.[13]

Jeffrey Cannuck

Jeffrey Cannuck is a victim of the Blind Eye Society's memory erasing. Based on where his memories are stored, it can be inferred that he knew notable information about Gravity Falls' supernatural side.[14]

Jim Storch

Jim Storch is the owner of Storch Farms. One day the pterodactyl snatched 3 of his sheep, and he was not happy.[13]


Marilyn is Stan's ex-wife, who divorced him after only six hours of marriage.[1] Having met in Las Vegas, she married him solely as a means to steal his money and car.[15] Gravity Falls: Journal 3 has Dipper commenting on watching a memory of Stan marrying a waitress named Marilyn Rosenstein, only for her to try and steal Stan's car 48 hours later. It's possible that the two are completely different people, though it's yet to be confirmed. Alex Hirsch's grandfather, Stan, off of whom Stan Pines is based, had a wife named Marilyn.[16]

In a special commentary track for "Land Before Swine," Stan describes Marilyn as having pale skin and an abnormally sharp tooth, and that she was wearing a shirt reading "Over 30 & Very Flirty". He also states that "Marilyn" was a fake name, and that she disappeared after "[ducking] out of a door and into a canyon". [15] These descriptions of Marilyn's appearance and personality bear a striking resemblance to Edalyn Clawthorne, a main character from Dana Terrace's The Owl House. In the Lost Legends graphic novel, a wanted poster with a silhouette matching Eda, along with her staff, can be seen, suggesting that the character may exist in the Gravity Falls universe. Additionally, Terrace made the statement in a Reddit AMA that Eda had previously been to Vegas.[17] Finally, in the Owl House episode "Yesterday's Lie", Eda is shown to have used the alias "Marylin" while on Earth. Together, this all suggests that "Marilyn Rosenstein" may be one and the same with Eda Clawthorne.

Mr. Northwest

Mr. Northwest was a robber who lived sometime between the 19th and 20th centuries. He is an ancestor of the modern Northwest family.[6]

Dipper and Mabel's parents

Main article: Dipper and Mabel's parents

A cut-off picture of Dipper and Mabel's parents.

Mr. and Mrs. Pines are the parents of Dipper and Mabel Pines, who reside in Piedmont, California.[18] While they are mostly just frequently mentioned only, their arms have physically been seen and a picture of them is featured in "Tourist Trapped."

Mr. and Mrs. Chiu

Mr. and Mrs. Chiu are Candy Chiu's parents. At one point, Candy spoke to her mother about having a sleepover with Mabel.[11] Later, it's revealed that every last week of summer vacation, Mr. and Mrs. Chiu force their daughter to attend music camp.[19] Though in "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls", They presumably have changed their minds for the year so that Candy can say goodbye to Mabel on the last day of summer.

Mrs. Determined

Mrs. Determined is Toby Determined's mother. Her son called her at some point, and he reports it in the Gravity Falls Gossiper.[20]

Mrs. Thompson

Ms. Thompson is Thompson's mother. She does not like her son's friends punching the roof of their car.[21]

Mrs. Corduroy

Mrs. Corduroy is the presumably deceased mother of Wendy Corduroy and her brothers, and Manly Dan's wife.[22]

In "Gravity Falls: Lost Legends," a member of the Blind Eye Society is seen with a tube of "repressed memories" marked "Mrs. Corduroy memories." Shmebulock speculated on his fan chart that she may be in another dimension.

Nate's mother

Nate's mother was mentioned by Lee when insulting Nate.[21]

Northwest Fest guests

Two pages in the Northwest Fest guest book.

The Northwest Fest guests include several powerful individuals who attend the Northwest family's annual party.

Among who are pictured but do not physically appear include:

  • Baron Sneer-Snout
  • Duchess Wibblebip
  • Mr. and Mrs. Drole
  • Argyle Snif??r-foot
  • Unnamed woman


Lunch Lady Phyllis, likely named Phyllis, was mentioned by Gideon Gleeful in one of his letters to the Pines' family, and Mabel Pines in particular. In the letter, Gideon implied that he was attracted to Phyllis, a lunch lady at the Gravity Falls Maximum Security Prison.

Queen of the Manatees

Main article: Queen of the Manatees

Mermando and his bride.

The Queen of the Manatees is Mermando's fiancée, whom he pledged to marry to avoid an undersea civil war. She is not mentioned until the last known letter of Mermando is delivered to Mabel Pines, and the engagement likely took place after he met Mabel.[14]

Shermie Pines

Sherman "Shermie" Pines is the brother of Stan and Ford Pines and the paternal grandfather of Dipper and Mabel Pines, the father of Mr. Pines, and the father-in-law to Mrs. Pines. He was mentioned in "A Tale of Two Stans,"[23] and is mentioned again in Gravity Falls: Journal 3.[24] He was also on Shmebulock's Pines conspiracy board in Gravity Falls: Lost Legends.[25] Stan also mentions him in Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets, where he reveals that he wore a bow tie to the hospital when the twins were born. It's unknown if he is still alive or what his current whereabouts are.

Whether Shermie is Stan and Ford’s younger or older brother remains unclear, as there are parts of the canon that imply he’s younger, such as the twins’ principal telling their parents they have two sons in A Tale of Two Stans and Caryn Pines appearing later holding a baby, but if he is the youngest that would make both him and his son fifteen or sixteen when they had children (see the Timeline for more details). This ambiguity was alluded to in his appearance on Shmebulock’s conspiracy board, where a cipher questions whether Shermie has been the subject of a time warp. Show writer Jeffrey Rowe once was asked this and stated that the baby was Shermie.[26]He later however retracted that claim and stated he actually didn't know the answer and not to take the idea that Shermie was the baby as canon.[27]


Abuelito is Soos Ramirez and Reggie's late maternal grandfather and Abuelita's former husband. According to her, he is "not [in heaven]."[10]

Mrs. Ramirez

Mrs. Ramirez is Soos' mother, Abuelita's daughter, Reggie's aunt (and therefore the sister of one of his parents), and Mr. Ramirez's wife. Little is known about her, aside from the fact that she is of Latin American heritage.[28]

Nate's girlfriend

Nate's girlfriend is mentioned in "Boyz Crazy" by Robbie when he says that she and Nate were going up to Lookout Point, though they never showed up.[29] In "Double Dipper," Nate was seen dancing with a girl that might've been her.

Sky Tram Host

A Sky Tram Host provides information about the "world's slowest sky tram."

Soos' father

S2e8 card back.png

Soos Ramirez's unnamed father, Abuelita's son-in-law and Reggie's uncle, is never actually seen in the show. Soos has not seen his father since he was at least four years old.[9] Soos realized the extent of his father's neglect on his twelfth birthday, which led to a decade-long disdain for the date.[9] In "Weirdmageddon 2: Escape From Reality," since he's never seen his dad, Soos fantasizes that he has the body of a pro wrestler and a face he once saw on a hot sauce bottle.

  • According to Alex Hirsch, Soos' father is Caucasian while his mother is Hispanic.[30]
    • Soos' Spanish-language surname, Ramirez, suggests that he took his mother's surname.


Steve is a police officer in Gravity Falls. Sheriff Blubs and Deputy Durland abandon the Pines to watch him fit an entire cantaloupe in his mouth.[31]


Steven is one of Old Man McGucket’s friends. He has a wife and children, and he hasn't seen McGucket in a long time.[4]


Susie was, at one point, suspected for the murder of Wax Stan.

Bill's parents

Tambry's parents

Tambry's parents go out of town on the day of Summerween, and their daughter hosts a party in their absence.[32]

Victor Valentino

The father of Greg Valentino and paternal grandfather of Robbie Valentino. He was the Gravity Falls funeral director in the late 20th century. Ford Pines describes him as "creepier than zombies."

Baron von Fundshauser

The father of Marius von Fundshauser. He died when Marius was only seven years old, during the time his son inherited a cravat and an epaulet factory that quickly gained prominence among the richest of the rich in his entire home area.

Uncle Phil

Uncle Phil was, at one point, suspected for the murder of Wax Stan.

Unnamed Li'l Gideon fan

An unnamed Li'l Gideon fan is mentioned by the child psychic on his date with Mabel Pines. He apparently shooed her away, telling her to "autograph her own headshot."[3]

Unnamed magician

An unnamed magician is a man who once went on a date with Melody, an experience she found unpleasant.[10]

Unnamed Warden

In "TV Shorts 1" a warden is mentioned by Gideon when the latter says "Oh no, The Warden!" after a fellow prisoner breaks prison glass out of enormous inspiration.

Wax Abraham Lincoln

A melted Wax Abraham Lincoln

Wax Abraham Lincoln was one of several wax figures from the episode "Headhunters." He was a wax figure of the American President during the civil war, who had melted due to the fact that someone left open the window, thereby letting the sunlight in. Stan Pines then turns towards Wax John Wilkes Booth, thinking he was the culprit behind it, and holds him responsible.

Wax John Wilkes Booth

Held responsible as the killer of Wax Abraham Lincoln by Stan Pines.
