The Multi-Bear is a magical beast who lives in a cave at the top of a high mountain. Dipper went to go and conquer it in order to attain manliness. It has eight heads, with one main intelligent head that is capable of human speech.
Dipper was sent by the Manotaurs to kill the Multi-Bear and bring back one of its heads as the final test to prove his manliness. When Dipper arrived, the Multi-Bear, showing a surprising degree of civility, told Dipper that to fight him would be foolish, and that if he didn't leave, he would kill him. However, Dipper refused to leave, and as such, the Multi-Bear carried out his threat, and engaged Dipper in combat. Unfortunately for him, the Multi-Bear found Dipper to be too agile and small of frame, toppling onto his back after being choked with the grip of Dipper's spear.
Staring death in the face, the Multi-Bear accepted his fate, asking for but one last request: to die while listening to his favorite song. Dipper, being nothing if not sporting, granted his request, but found to his surprise that the Multi-Bear's favorite song was Icelandic pop sensation BABBA's "Disco Girl," a song he himself was fond of.
Upon discovering this common interest, the Multi-Bear and Dipper held a brief dialogue on the subject, before being brought back to the matter at hand. Being an honorable beast, the Multi-Bear made no attempt to take advantage of the situation, preparing to receive a finishing blow. However, he never received it, as Dipper refused to kill the beast after finding out that he "is a really nice guy." Upon doing this, Dipper, according to the Manotaurs, did not acquire manliness.
In "Weirdmageddon 2: Escape From Reality," the Multi-Bear is in the Mystery Shack which now acts as a stronghold for the group of townsfolk and other creatures Dipper and Mabel met during summer, led by Stan. After Dipper and Mabel find their way back to the Shack, the Multi-Bear comes out of the bathroom, saying that they have ran out of toilet paper. He now wears a couple of eye patches. He might have injured or lost a couple of eyes, due to Weirdmageddon. (However when he is waving goodbye to Mabel and Dipper at the end his eye patches are gone and his eyes are good as new.)
In "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls," the Multi-Bear assists in the attack on Bill Cipher and his minions, manning the periscopes with his multiple sets of eyes and hands. Following Bill's defeat, the Multi-Bear is seen among other Gravity Falls creatures, waving off Dipper and Mabel as they return home.
The Multi-Bear is shown to be a fairly no-nonsense type, quickly dismissing Dipper as yet another challenger doomed to die, and warning him away in light of that fact. He is not afraid to defend himself, as despite Dipper's young age, he puts up quite a fight. Once bested, though, he shows that he is surprisingly humble and honorable, making no attempts to reverse his fate, but merely requesting that he listen to his favorite song one last time. He also seems to have a lighter side, as he gets rather animated when discussing his love for BABBA with Dipper. Underneath his fierce exterior, it would seem he is a fairly gentle soul, displaying many human qualities.
The Multi-Bear is a large black bear with eight heads and twelve limbs. He has one main head, capable of human speech and possessing the prime brain of the creature, which is surrounded by four other heads on his neck region. He has three other heads, one on his back attached to a partially formed separate body, and one in each of his two crotches.
He has two sets of arms, and two sets of legs, as well as an additional, vestigial set of limbs on the partially formed body on his back. He is capable of standing upright on his multiple legs, as well as crouching down on all eight of his main limbs (excluding the four on his back) in the same fashion as a normal bear would.

"'(telling his other heads to shut up) Bear heads, silence!"
"I wish to die listening to my favorite song."
"All the manotaurs make fun of me because I know all the words to the song 'Disco Girl.'"
"Just so everyone knows, we're out of toilet paper. Did I miss something?'"
- "Between the Pines" revealed that the Multi-Bear was originally going to be called the "Bear Bear."
- It was also confirmed in "Between the Pines" that Dipper would say to him "There, there, Bear Bear."
- "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls" reveals that the Multi-Bear has taken a class on shiatsu massage.
- While the Multi-Bear's main head is intelligent and capable of human speech, the rest of his heads are more animalistic in terms of intellect and only grunt or roar. Sometimes they do their own thing independently of the main head, such as chewing or sucking on their paws.
- The main head, however, is able to command the others to perform more complex tasks, such as simultaneously operating the multiple periscopes during the attack against Bill Cipher.
- In the Weirdmageddon series the Multi-Bear is noticably smaller than he was in Dipper vs. Manliness.
- On a closer look the Multi-Bear seems to have three separate bodies: two at the front and one at the back. Each of the two front bodies has a head on either shoulder and one in the crotch, while the backmost body has only a single head, and all three are attached to the main head on top. As each body has four limbs it all totals to eight heads and twelve limbs.
- Despite wearing eyepatches during Weirdmageddon in the final scene the eyepatches are gone. It is likely he was only injured and not completely lost some eyes.
