  • Each episode of Gravity Falls is well known to have tons of secret messages and ciphers

  • hidden throughout. For example, at the very end of each episode, a string of seemingly

  • random characters can be seen. When decrypted, these messages often turn out to be some sort

  • of joke or reference to something that happened during the episode, or even something that

  • will happen in an upcoming episode. Series creator Alex Hirsch is the one who creates

  • all the ciphers and usually includes them at the very end of production. The cryptograms

  • uses quite a few different encryption methods. First we have the "Caesar cipher" which in

  • this case offset the alphabet by three characters. So "A" becomes "D", "B" becomes "E", "C" becomes

  • "F", and so on. The next one is called the "Atbash cipher" and it simply reverses the

  • alphabet. Then we have the "A1Z26 cipher" which replaces each character in the alphabet

  • with the corresponding number of its position. So "A" becomes "1" and "Z" becomes "26". Thus

  • the name. The "Vigenère cipher" uses a random word as a key to encrypt the message. So say

  • the message we want to encrypt is "LEMMINO WATCHES GRAVITY FALLS". We then pick a random

  • key word, so let's say "DIPPER". We repeat this key word until it matches the length

  • of the message like so, and then use something called the Vigenère square. The first letter

  • of the message is "L" which means the row that begins with "L", and the first letter

  • of the key word string is "D" which means the column that begins with "D". Row L and

  • Column D intersect at "O" so the first letter of the cryptogram is "O". Then you repeat

  • this process for each letter and just like that, you have a secret message.

  • If you want clues to solve the many ciphers, they can actually be found in the opening

  • sequence of every episode. If you play the intro in reverse, you'll hear someone whisper something.

  • Three letters back.

  • Three letters back.

  • And it's not always the same as the whisper changes as the ciphers change in the show.

  • Switch A with Z.

  • 26 letters.

  • Key vigenère.

  • Oh, and you can also see Bigfoot if you pause at the right frame.

  • If you ever thought Regular Show, Adventure Time, and Gravity Falls seemed at bit similar

  • at times, it's not that strange considering that the three creators all know each other.

  • J. G. Quintel (Regular Show), Pendleton Ward (Adventure Time), and Alex Hirsch (Galaxy Falls)

  • all went to CalArts together and also worked on The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack

  • together, before creating their own respective shows.

  • When Alex Hirsch and his friends where still in school at CalArts, they knew a guy named

  • Jesús Chambrot. They knew he was a few years older than them but not his exact age. He

  • jokingly became this sort of mysterious person that they knew but at the same time kinda

  • didn't. This brought on the inspiration to create the character Soos in Gravity Falls.

  • Grunkle Stan is also based on a real person, namely Alex's grandfather, also named Stan.

  • Even Dipper and Mabel are loosely based on Alex and his twin sister Ariel. For example,

  • just like Mabel in the show, Alex's sister used to love boy bands, had an assortment

  • of vibrant sweaters and was in general quite goofy and crazy as a child.

  • Throughout the show you might have noticed a number showing up again and again. The number

  • 618. This is the birthday of Alex Hirsch and his twin sister. Some examples are The Mystery

  • Shack's address. Every cash register you can find. The first page of Journal 3 is dated

  • June 18. When Bill gets angry during one episode, you'll see a bunch of symbols flashing inside

  • his eye. The third, forth, and firth are Thai numerals that spell out 6, 1, and 8. Even

  • the main production code for each episode begins with this number.

  • The creator has even appeared as himself a few times. In the opening sequence, the bottom

  • half of his face can be seen in one of the photos. He's seen riding a unicycle in one

  • episode, known simply as Alex the Clown. In one episode, a photo of him can be seen with

  • the text "Who?" written in red, and in another he appears on the front cover of a magazine.

  • The name Dipper comes from acne. Well sort of at least. When Alex Hirsch went to hight

  • school there was a kid with extreme amounts of acne, and he took pleasure in imagining

  • that the acne was stars and thus mapped out constellations between them. One day, the

  • kid supposedly had a perfect cluster that looked like the Big Dipper on his forehead.

  • And thus Dipper got his name and even the constellation itself in the form of a birthmark

  • on his forehead. The name is just a nickname though and Dipper's real name has never officially

  • been revealed. But Quentin Trembley in the show calls him Roderick and writer Jeff Rowe

  • has said that his real name is Llamanic, but it's unclear if it was simply a joke or not.

  • Many characters in the show have some form of symbol that is in some way related to them.

  • For example Mable has a rainbow with a star on her most frequently used shirt. Dipper

  • has a blue pine tree on his hat. Stan has a yellow crescent shape on his fez. Robbie

  • has red bleeding heart with stitches on his hoodie and Soos has the iconic question mark

  • on his shirt. These 5 symbols can all be found within the so called "Bill Cipher Wheel".

  • It's displayed very briefly at the end of the opening sequence as well as within Journal

  • 2. The other 5 symbols are a bit more ambiguous. The glasses are all but confirmed to represent

  • Stans brother Ford, also known as The Author of the Journals. The bag of ice could perhaps

  • be a reference to Dipper, Wendy or any of her friends as Dipper has been made to fetch

  • ice for them on several occasions. But as Dipper and Robbie already have symbols on

  • the wheel and Wendy's friends are quite minor characters. It's at least most likely a reference

  • to Wendy. The star is most likely a reference to Gideon Gleeful, but could also be a reference

  • to his father Bud Gleeful. The six fingered hand is obviously a symbol for the Journals.

  • But the author, Ford Pines, already has a symbol on the wheel so this is a bit of a mystery

  • so far. Maybe it's simply a reference to the Journals themselves.

  • I mean there's nothing to say that the symbols has to represent a person.

  • The llama has so far been seen on one of Mabel's sweaters and on a painting inside

  • Northwest Mansion which could reference really anyone in the Northwest family.

  • But again, as Mabel already has a

  • symbol on the wheel and most of the Northwest family are minor characters. It's most likely

  • a reference to Pacifica. There's tons theories out there as to what this could mean and who

  • the symbols are supposed to represent, but so far this is all we can say for certain.

  • In the episode Dreamscaperers, Gideon falls to his knees and begin chanting some incomprehensible

  • phrase over and over again. If you play this scene in reverse, you'll hear what he's actually saying.

  • Both Dipper and Mable where born at the end of the summer in 1999. In the show they are

  • now 12 years old and as the show takes place over the course of one single summer, it means

  • their childhood will come to an end with the end of the series. Gravity Fall's creator

  • has said that summer used to feel endless to him when he was a child so the length of

  • the summer in Gravity Falls is more emotional than logical. It's supposed to illustrate

  • one long, insane, seemingly eternal summer before they have to return home leaving behind

  • not only Gravity Falls, but also their childhood.
