Template:For Template:Creature The Hide Behind is a mysterious creature that inhabits the Gravity Falls Forest.

History

Background

Some point before the events of the series, Ford came across and studied the creature, recording its abilities in Journal 3, but would have struggled because it has "never been seen."

Shorts

In "The Hide-Behind," Dipper sets out to find the elusive creature in order to prove it exists. As Dipper concludes the interview with his great-uncle, the Hide-Behind makes its rattling noise and runs out from behind the Mystery Shack into the forest. After a number of hours chasing it, Dipper corners it behind a thin tree, which emits the rattling noise. After Dipper mistakes an owl with a maraca for it, he states that the Hide-Behind must be a legend and nothing more, as he walks off deeper into the forest. However, the Hide-Behind appears from behind the thin tree, and makes its rattling cry, as Dipper turns around, it hides behind larger trees, with Dipper unaware of its presence as it continues to stalk the young adventurer.

Season 2

In "Into the Bunker," the Shape Shifter transformed into a Hide Behind after getting Journal 3, despite the journal having no clear photo of it.

In "Weirdmageddon 2: Escape From Reality," the page for the Hide Behind in Journal 3 is shown when Bill's eye flashes through the journal's pages.
