10 Hidden Details In Gravity Falls You May Have Missed
2. Cryptogram Meanings
Gravity Falls is renowned for its unique codes and subtle messages which give it an added layer of depth and mystery. But it would be fair to say that most fans would need help in solving each Cryptogram. They are a little bit complex but can be divided into three ciphers.
Episodes 1-6 use the Caeser cipher. In Tourist Trapped, the codes reads "ZHOFRPH WR JUDYLWB IDOOV", which in Caesar cipher means "Welcome to Gravity Falls". In The Legend of the Gobblewonker, the message can be translated to "Next Week: Return to the Butt Island". Episodes 7-13 use Atbash cipher, some examples of the ending codes include "Sorry, Dipper, but your Wendy is in another castle" and "The invisible wizard is watching". Episodes 14-19 use the A1Z26 cipher, and the season one finale uses a combination of all the previously mentioned ciphers.
Furthermore, one of the biggest details in season two was the various words which can be found etched into the background. They are actually keys for solving Vigenère ciphers provided on a puzzle piece after the credits. These puzzle pieces come together to create a Cryptic Page, with Grunkle Stan and Grunkle Ford's faces in the center of it.
