Daniel "Manly Dan" Corduroy is a recurring character in Gravity Falls. He is the father of Wendy and the Corduroy boys. He is often followed by the Cute Biker, for reasons unknown. He is voiced by John DiMaggio.
Manly Dan is initially seen in "The Legend of the Gobblewonker," where he is fishing with his boys. He snaps his son's fishing pole, and proceeds to catch a fish with his bare hands and beats it up, with his kids and the Cute Biker cheering him on. He is later seen when he is putting the fish in a headlock, and then seen swimming away with his sons when fish start falling from the sky, yelling that "they're coming for revenge."
He is next seen in "Headhunters," as part of the crowd at Grunkle Stan's wax museum unveiling. He gets angry when he learns that Stan lied about giving free pizza, and punches a pole as he leaves. He is later deemed a suspect for the murder of Wax Stan by Dipper, due to the ax found at the crime scene. He and Mabel go to the bar he hangs out at and Dipper interrogates him while he is arm-wrestling a robot named Biceptus. However, Dipper learns that he is not the culprit. Manly Dan does tell Dipper that the ax is a left-handed one, which helps Dipper narrow the suspects down to all left-handed suspects.
He is seen again in "Dipper vs. Manliness," eating at Greasy's Diner with Wendy. When Dipper fails to win a manliness tester, Manly Dan shoves Dipper away and effortlessly wins it using his pinky finger, winning all the patrons free pancakes. Then when Dipper is in the forest, Manly Dan is seen running away from the beast coming their way, shouting.
Dan reappears in "Summerween," trick-or-treating with his sons while dressed up as Vikings, and having them ram through a door.
He is also seen in "Bottomless Pit" during Mabel's story, Trooth Ache. Grunkle Stan orders Dan to unload a wild bear for an attraction at the Mystery Shack where a bear drives a car.
Manly Dan is the proud father figure, often showing his children how to do activities like fishing, in his own manly way. Besides this, he is also an emotionally unstable lumberjack. He also may have a bad temper, since in "Headhunters" he gets so mad that he punched a post almost all the way down. In spite of this, he still has some sense of caution, preferring to flee from the Manotaurs rather than fight them.
Manly Dan looks, as his name implies, very manly. He is extremely large and muscular, and sports a red beard, with his chest hair and armpit hair barely concealed. Manly Dan has short, bright red hair similar in color to Wendy's hair. He wears a stereotypical lumberjack outfit and brown work gloves. One of his front teeth are missing.
- He prefers using his right hand, to which he refers to as "the manly hand."
