Dipper is, as stated above, clever and inventive, which greatly helps him in solving the mysteries of Gravity Falls. He also has a crush on Wendy, a part-time employee at the Mystery Shack. He is rather mature for his age (excluding some occasional embarrassing moments around Wendy), and is rather brave, shown when holding his ground against a ferocious Multi-Bear.
Dipper wears a white and a navy blue baseball cap with a pine tree on it. He has fairly light skin, and brown hair. He wears an orange shirt with a navy blue vest over it, gray shorts, white socks, and black shoes, In the first episode he's wearing a hat with a star on it.
- Dipper is based on the creator Gravity Falls, Alex Hirsch.
