Bill Cipher Warning!!! This thread contains major spoilers for "Gravity Falls". Do not read further if you don't want to be spoiled.
Bill Cipher is a dream demon from the 2nd dimension. 1 trillion years before the events of Gravity Falls, he "liberated" his dimension by plunging it and everyone he knew into absolute chaos. After that he took over the realm between dimensions known as the Nightmare Realm. Due to the chaotic nature of it's existence, the Nightmare Realm was destined to collapse, so Bill set his sights on the 3rd dimension. Due to not technically having a physical form, he was only able to interact with humans via the Mindscape; the collective realm of human dreams.
Bill Cipher is not it's true name. It is essentially a dimensional username; hearing his true name causes mortals to instantly die
YOU BET I KNOW HIS TRUE NAME! IF I HAD A NAME THAT STUPID I'D USE A NICKNAME TOO! SPEAKING OF NAMES, "BILL CIPHER" IS BASICALLY A DIMENSIONAL USERNAME- A PRIMITIVE GRUNT DESIGNED FOR YOUR ANALOG EARS! IF YOU HEARD MY TRUE NAME YOU'D EVAPORATE TO DUST WITH AN EXPRESSION OF HORROR AND ECSTASY ON YOUR FACE! WHICH WOULD BE FUN BUT WOULD PROBABLY RUIN THE RUG! - Quote by Alex Hirsch, creator of Gravity Falls
Upon entering the 3rd dimension, Bill gained a physical form, as well as the ability to use his untold power on the physical world. As such, he got a massive power boost. After becoming a pyramid-ish shape, he changed back to a form reminiscent of his mindscape form.
Miscellaneous: I do not have the book yet, but in Journal 3 it is stated that even 12 dimensional beings are terrified of Bill, and that he is a threat to the multiverse, which was confirmed to be infinite.
