Bill Cipher: ONE Fatal Mistake

Co-written by Henry Galley.

In his acclaimed cartoon series Gravity Falls, Alex Hirsch created and voiced one of the most effective and memorable villains in western animation: Bill Cipher. The terrifying triangle cast a spell over viewers for years to come, and his legacy is the show's legacy. This is how that incredible villain met his well-deserved ending at the hands of the Pine Family. This is Bill Cipher's One Fatal Mistake.

  • Gravity Falls was a great show about a weird town, but have you heard of Long Gone Gulch? It's an amazing pilot about a similarly weird town:

  • This is the proof Bill Cipher is still alive. This is from an gravity falls book: " I am the Axolotl," says the Axolotl. "But enough about me. You've managed to find me, so you get one question apiece. Don't waste it!" "What are you, like a salamander?" Asks Mabel. "I am the Axolotl," replies Axolotl. "And that was your question. How about you, boy?" The Axolotl stares at Dipper. Dipper thinks a moment. "What do you know about Bill Cipher?" The Axolotl ponders the question. Then his eyes begin to glow, and he speaks: Sixty degrees that come in threes. Watches from within birch trees. Saw his own dimension burn. Misses home and can't return. Says he's happy. He's a liar. Blame the arson for the fire. If he wants to shirk the blame, He'll have to invoke my name ( a-x-o-l-o-t-l ). One way to absolve his crime. A different form, a different time. This page goes on but the rest doesn't matter So we know that Bill Cipher, is still alive, cause if you reverse his death scene his last words were A-X-O-L-O-T-L! MY TIME HAS COME TO BURN! I INVOKE THE ANCIENT POWERS! THAT I MAY RETURN! remember he spelled out " ( a-x-o-l-o-t-l ) ", which means he is alive, but in a different form, and a different time.

  • I recently overcame ego, but I didn’t do it alone. After getting my first job, and getting my first paycheck, all I wanted was more things for me. After some waiting (Craigslist scalpers) I finally got what I wanted. I had fun. But something was still missing. Near the end of the school year I encountered a small Twitch streamer from Hawaii. After only a few streams, and learning about who he wants to be and how he wants to live, I finally discovered that his way is a better way. I need to think beyond myself, and sacrifice personal and material gain in the name of friendship. Making the decision to leave ego behind and do what I can to bring joy and memories to others is one of the best I have ever made. Give it a shot. You won’t regret it.

  • I like how this while video was just 19 minutes of how to use the "evil can not comprehend good" trope. But here's something that always bugged me about cartoons like Gravity Falls and other shows like that. Weirdly enough, Gravity Falls was the first time I saw this happen. Why do these "story driven" cartoon always decide to start with a few episodic episodes and then go into the actual story later on. Yes, I know I'm coming across as Lily Orchard saying that you should decide to start as a comedy or a drama first and never decide to start out as a comedy and turn into a drama, but I swear that's not my intention. Like would the show as a whole still work if it was solely about the whole Bill Cypher arc? I think it would. That's why I liked Infinity Train, because the show went straight to the point of it being a show with a story arc. It literally costs $0 to do it that way and include the "previously on" and "next time on" things at the beginning and end of each episode respectively.

  • Damn you're right. In the official Journal 3, at the end, Stanford talks exactly about that: about his ego and how his brother, Stanley, was a real hero. He says that he forgot what really matters and it was Stanley who paid the price (had his merory wiped). This show is really deep, and I don't even think its creator had that big of an idea when he first thought about it.
