Loud, grouchy, and a great Grunkle, Stan is one of the fan favorites in Gravity Falls due to his down to earth, sometimes even just plain rude outlook on life. He puts up a barrier of nihilism as a defense mechanism, but secretly knows exactly what is important, and what to prioritize.
Stan is the great uncle and summer guardian of the Pines twins. After many years of crime and infamy, he has taken up residence in the remote town of Gravity Falls, Oregon, where he exploits local lore to run a dubious tourist trap known as the Mystery Shack.
Many Stan fans cite S02E01, in which Stan takes off his hat and fights off zombies with a pair of brass knuckles, as a favorite moment.
Stancest is the most common shipping that features Grunkle Stan. Despite being a fan favourite, he's shunned in the shipping department compared to his other family members.
