* OutOfCharacterMoment: In "Elementary, My Dear Stacy" Doofenshmirtz ends up saying something that was clearly ''intentional'' on the creators' part:
-->'''Doofenshmirtz''': He's P and you're OO, so together you spell-
-->'''Agent Double O''': No, they're not O's, they're zeros. Alright?
-->'''Doofenshmirtz''': Relax, I was ''just'' going to say ''oop''.

* BigBrotherInstinct[=/=]PapaWolf: He's normally happy to foil Doofenshmirtz's plan and leave him to escape and defeat him the next time, but any time his plan threatens Phineas and Ferb (or the rest of his family), he quickly beats him and once left him handcuffed to be arrested.
** Demonstrated again in the Across the Second Dimension movie when he protects the boys [[spoiler: from Platyborg, exposing his identity as a secret agent as a result.]]

* AffablyEvil: To the point of being [[VitriolicBestBuds best]] [[FriendlyEnemy frenemies]] with Perry the Platypus.
** And even more so in TheMovie. He's very polite and affable to the boys when they first meet him, after they offer to fix the Other Dimensioninator. Doof even offers them some food from his buffet.

* BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad: In one episode, he tries to keep a news clip of him saving a kitty from being seen by his colleagues to protect his evil reputation, for just one example.
** In another one, Doof was out of ideas so he decided to create a good-idea-inator to give him a good idea but, because of the trope, he instead made a bad-idea-inator.

* DastardlyWhiplash: Despite not having a mustache or hat (and wearing a lab coat instead in keeping with his MadScientist role), Doofenshmirtz still has many traits where he would fit this trope: exaggerated nose and chin, hunched posture, elaborate crazy schemes, and over-the-top mannerisms.
** His historical counterpart at the Danville World Fair, however, more than makes up for it by having the mustache and the predilection for tying nemeses to train tracks.

* DrivesLikeCrazy: During his Drusselstein driving test, to the point ''Perry'' was terrified.

* HeelFaceTurn: By the time "Act Your Age" takes place, [[spoiler:he has given up on doing evil completely]].
** It's revealed to have happened [[spoiler:during the events of "Last Day of Summer" after a heart to heart with his daughter Vanessa, where she [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructs]] his character and says he's a good guy acting bad due to his childhood and he's not really happy being evil.

** Also, in a series that averages at least one musical number per episode, Doofenshmirtz's songs tend to have a full Broadway-style kick line backing him up. There's even a [[FreezeFrameBonus diorama in Danville City Hall]] of this.

* WebOriginal/LOLCats: He reveals in one episode that he's a fan of LOL Cats when he shows them to Perry (who doesn't seem to find them as amusing as Doofenshmirtz does).
** However, it seems he's lost his taste for them, as per his [[CharacterBlog Character YouTube Series]].



* NeverMyFault: Doof blames Perry for his plans failing, even when he screws them up himself. In "That Sinking Feeling" he curses Perry when his [[ItMakesSenseInContext lighthouse rocket]] ends up lodged in the Evil, Inc. building even though Perry had completely failed to foil him that time.
** Also, when Doof failed to destroy the adult diaper factory, he blamed Perry despite acknowledging Perry had no role on it whatsoever.

But time and time again she has also shown capable of amazing feats given enough motivation (most commonly when she's trying to bust or protect her brothers).
** As a general rule, she's a complete ButtMonkey when dealing with her personal obsessions, but when faced with an ''actual'' crisis she's remarkably capable.

* GenreSavvy: Not [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy dangerously]] so, but he's well aware of how his typical confrontations with Perry will go and lampshades it to no end. There are times where he even decides to switch up the usual events or asks Perry to help him out so that Perry can defeat him later on. Not too savvy on other aspects of the show, for example, misinterpreting Candace's ThisIsNoTimeForKnitting moment in "The Chronicles of Meap").
** There ''are'' rare occasions when he puts his savviness to good use such as in "Robot Rodeo" where he sets the trapped O.W.C.A. agents free, knowing that they will destroy all the other inators at the inator competition, allowing his own entry (completed later than the others) to win by default.
