    Norm The Giant Robot Man 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Norm2_5768.jpg
He's not quite the next Stormtrooper.
"We're all very impressed with your numbers, sir!"
Voiced by: John Viener, Joel McHale (prototype head)

A slightly scatterbrained android build by Dr. Doofenshmirtz to destroy Perry the Platypus in the episode "Greece Lightning", based on the Doctor misinterpreting an old film strip about how "the greatest enemy of the platypus is man". Norm eventually started showing up in later episodes helping out Doofenshmirtz with the occasional evil scheme. He has some of the personality attributes of an eerily-cheerful office-worker from The Fifties, with an occasional sarcastic streak.
  • Affably Evil: He's fond of spouting random dialogue more appropriate to a married, white-collar suburbanite than a killer robot originally designed to attack platypi on sight.
  • Anti-Villain: Every time he has served as an antagonist, he is either following orders or believes he can earn Doofenshmirtz's affection by doing so.
  • Ascended Extra: Started out as one of Doof's inventions (after learning "the enemy of the platypus is man", he built a robot man), and then began making more appearances as Doof's lovable but bungling henchman, and even had two episodes centered around him ("A Real Boy" & "Norm Unleashed").
  • Beware the Silly Ones: In "Norm Unleashed".
  • Captain Obvious: "I'm drilling!"
  • Characterization Marches On: From one-off scheme of Doofenshmirtz's, to occasional Servile Snarker, to a full-blown character with motivations, his own episode, and his own song.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Especially in earlier appearances, when he could only speak in cliche sitcom phrases, but has been toned down somewhat since his character grew out of that tendency. Though he's noticeably odd throughout the series, being a Literal-Minded robot.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Instead of building complex -inators, Norm decides to conquer the Tri-State Area the old fashioned way, with weaponry
  • Crazy-Prepared: Retrofits himself with a massive arsenal of weapons in "Norm Unleashed", all of which are exactly what he needs to counter Perry's usual attempts to stop him.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He took down a much larger and more advanced robot with a cup of coffee once to save Doofenshmirtz.
    • And in "Norm Unleashed", he needs to take over Doofenshmirtz's role in conquering the Tri-State Area and does so in spectacular fashion.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "A Real Boy", "Love at First Byte", and "Norm Unleashed". "Phineas and Ferb-busters!" also focuses on him more than usual.
  • Dissonant Serenity: Justified since he's a robot. His voice is cheerful and upbeat, yet his dialogue is darkly comical.
  • Deadpan Snarker: His prototype head.
  • Do-Anything Robot: Even Doofenshmirtz is not aware of his full functionality. And on top of that he can be retrofitted with new parts quite easily.
  • The Dragon: Doofenshmirtz's main (and usually only) accomplice in his evil schemes.
  • Giant Mook: The largest prominent recurring character in the show and Doofenshmirtz's robotic assistant.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: He proves to be a more effective villain than Doofenshmirtz, and actually gives Perry a decent challenge.
  • Graceful Loser: "Ah, I see what you're going for. Well played, sir."
  • The Igor: In a few episodes.
  • Killer Robot: He was created to destroy platypuses, but he generally subverts this after his first appearance, not being malicious on his own. However, when given the freedom to come up with his own evil scheme in "Norm Unleashed", he plays this terrifyingly straight, opting to destroy the Tri-State Area with weapons if the citizens don't surrender.
  • Literal-Minded: Frequently. For instance, when Doofenshmirtz impatiently tells him to "stuff it", he literally puts the chocolate cake he had been holding into his own mouth. (Since he is a robot and lacks a digestive system, it just comes back out of his ears.)
  • Machine Monotone: He is a robot after all.
  • Mad Love: Norm has this for Doofenshmirtz in a "Well Done, Son!" Guy sort of way. Doof has no parental affection for him, but it doesn't stop Norm from trying.
  • Morph Weapon: He has a few of these.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: He does a very impressive job on the one occasion where he had to take over from Doofenshmirtz in trying to conquer the Tri-State Area.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Sometimes, like in "Phineas and Ferb-busters!"
  • Pinocchio Syndrome: He wants to be a real Boy. There's even a song about it.
  • Running Gag: Norm demonstrating an ability or attribute of his that happens to be just what Doofenshmirtz needs, and Doof remarking that he really needs to read Norm's instruction manual. Has only been used twice thus far, though.
  • Sarcasm-Blind: Due to being Literal-Minded. Interestingly, he does have a snarky streak of his own.
  • Servile Snarker: Rarely, but that just makes it funnier.
    • By contrast, his prototype head was nothing but a snarker.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Chloe.
  • Stepford Smiler: Doesn't really show much expression sans that smile no matter what he's feeling (though his smile does flip into a frown on rare occasions, especially in later episodes). Justified, as he's a robot who can't show expressions.
    (big smile) "Now I know I have a heart—-because it's breaking!" (Single Tear)
    • Taken even further in "A Real Boy", when he's shown to have several backup heads meant to show different emotions... and they all have exactly the same expression as his normal head.
    • "Secretly I'm very lonely!"
    • "Space is cold and unforgiving. Just like my father."
    • "Why must I be alone?"
  • Sudden Anatomy: Grows a platypus-sized control station in his torso in "A Traffic Cam Caper", when Perry needs to use him as Powered Armor. Later, this spot is occupied by a squirrel on an exercise wheel, which, based on "A Real Boy", seems to have become a permanent attribute.
  • Sycophantic Servant: Sees Doofenshmirtz as a father figure.
  • Took a Level in Badass: He nearly beats Perry in "Norm Unleashed".
  • Transforming Mecha: "Undercover Carl" shows that he can transform into a flatbed truck (though a special license is apparently needed to drive him in this form).
  • Villain Song: "Weaponry".
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: In his Villain Song he even calls Dr. Doofenshmirtz "father" and does his best to win Doofenshmirtz's approval. He has little success, but "Love at First Byte" shows that Doofenshmirtz does have some affection for him.

    Talking Zebra

Does a zebra call you "Kevin"?
"Oh, it gets much stranger, Kevin..."
Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

A mysterious talking zebra who tends to show up whenever Candace is hallucinating or dreaming. He seems to think Candace's name is "Kevin".

    Meap 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/meap_alpha.jpg
"Meap!"
Voiced by: Lorenzo Lamas, Jeff Foxworthy (while using the Southern translator mustache), Jeff "Swampy" Marsh (while using the British translator mustache)

A small, adorable alien who initially crash landed in Phineas and Ferb's yard and was nicknamed "Meap" based on his curious vocalizations. In spite of his appearance he is strong enough to defeat opponents many times his size and turns out to be an intergalactic security agent in charge of stopping Mitch. It has been shown that he belongs to a species whose language is composed solely of the word "Meap" and can shoot destructive rainbow-colored beams from their mouth.


  • Aliens Speaking English: But only if he wears a translator.
  • Badass: A member of the Space Police and a highly skilled combatant.
  • Badass Adorable: In spite of his appearance, he is an experienced member of the Space Police for good reason.
  • Breath Weapon: He can fire a destructive beam from his mouth.
  • Hero of Another Story: Has many missions throughout the galaxy, but only occasionally appears in the show.
  • Informed Attractiveness: Many other characters unanimously consider him to be cute.
  • Killer Rabbit: Small and cute, but can shoot Frickin' Laser Beams and is incredibly strong.
  • Nice Hat: The pink top of his head is actually a hat.
  • Odd Friendship: He and Candace relate to one another due to both of them considering it their duty to bust wrongdoers.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: His real name has never been revealed and his human friends all refer to him as "Meap", based on what his native language sounds like to them. Even Mitch calls him such in "Meapless in Seattle", despite being the same species as him.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: He is able to subdue Mitch with little effort, despite the criminal being much larger while wearing a mechanical suit.
  • Pokémon Speak: Without a translator, all he can say is "Meap".
  • Police Are Useless: Averted, as he is implied to be consistently successful at capturing criminals. He is more limited by the judicial system of his home planet, in which the worst punishment possible is a time out. While he is defeated by Mitch in "Meapless in Seattle", everyone besides Isabella was equally helpless against Mitch by that point, and indeed he was the only Meapian to actually put up any fight at all.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Repeatedly referred to as being cute, even in-universe.
  • Space Police: His job is to hunt down and arrest criminals throughout the galaxy.
  • Super Cute Super Powers: His rainbow death ray.
  • Talking with Signs: This is how he communicates with humans without a translator.
  • Translator Microbes: His various mustaches.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Averted when he's speaking his native language, but when he uses a translator his voice becomes surprisingly deep.
  • The Worf Effect: In "Meapless in Seattle", the cute-ified Mitch takes him by surprise during their fight and defeats him, leaving it up to Isabella to face the poacher.

    Mitch 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mitch_phineas_&_ferb.jpg
"You don't get it. You're my prisoners. You should be afraid of me!"
Voiced by: David Mitchell

An evil alien poacher who cruises the galaxies looking for rare specimens and occasionally tries to take over his home planet.
  • Aliens Speaking English: But only if he wears a translator.
  • Bad Is Good and Good Is Bad: Does not like to be called a zookeeper, as it "legitimizes" his evildoing.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Very silly and hammy, but he's still a serious threat and comes close to winning in "Meapless in Seattle".
  • Breath Weapon: He can fire a destructive beam from his mouth.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He explicitly claims that he is not a nice guy.
  • Cuteness Proximity: He tried to take over a planet by inflicting everyone with this after he enhancing himself with cuteonium.
  • Egomaniac Hunter: Mitch captures the galaxy's rarest creatures for his personal collection.
  • Evil Brit: Which is a bit weird, because the same translator mustaches render Meap's speech as American accented and it was later shown that there are various models tied to specific accents.
  • Evil Is Hammy
  • Evil Poacher: His main crime seems to be poaching rare creatures throughout the galaxy, but he's tried more ambitious schemes as well.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Speaks in a deep voice, at least when he uses a translator.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: A wanted intergalactic criminal named... Mitch.
  • I Have Many Names: Tries to invoke this, but the only two he can really come up with are Mitch, and, well, some of the guys call him "Big Mitch".
  • Informed Attractiveness: After taking the cuteonium.
  • Killer Rabbit: He's a member of Meap's species. He only looks big because he's wearing a suit.
  • Laughably Evil: His hamminess and Card-Carrying Villain tendencies make him amusing.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Parodied but averted.
    Mitch: Just so we're clear, I am not your father.
  • Mecha-Mooks: He has an army of these.
  • Mobile-Suit Human: An alien variant. He wears a suit that makes him much taller than he actually is. Said suit can also move on its own, though it doesn't seem too bright.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: He's relatively ineffectual in his first appearance, spending most of his time complaining about how the protagonists are not as scared of him as they should be. In "Meapless in Seattle", however, he successfully gets his hands on the cuteonium and incapacitates almost all the heroes. If it weren't for Isabella being able to out-cute him, he would have won.
  • Pokémon Speak: Without his mustache, all he can say is "Meap".
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Granted, he's less cute than the others of his kind. Definitely supposed to be one after taking cuteonium though.
  • Super Cute Super Powers: Being a member of Meap's species, he turns out to be capable of firing sparkling death rays as well.
  • Translator Microbes: His mustache.
  • Villain of Another Story: The worst punishment he can receive on his home planet is a time out, thus it is implied that he has to be constantly recaptured. However, he only visits Earth occasionally and so is rarely involved in the show's plot.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He was willing to keep Phineas, Ferb, and Isabella imprisoned on his ship, and sent his mobile suit to attack them in "Meapless in Seattle".

    Pinky the Chihuahua 
"Arf!"
Voiced by: Dee Bradley Baker

Isabella's pet chihuahua, later revealed to be an O.W.C.A. secret agent. He works in a different division from Perry the Platypus, under Admiral Acronym, and is the nemesis of Professor Poofenplotz.


    Peter the Panda 

A secret agent panda from Seattle who temporarily replaced Perry as Doofenshmirtz's nemesis. It was later revealed that this replacement was actually part of Doofenshmirtz's plan to defeat the O.W.C.A., upon which Peter and Perry worked together to foil the scheme. Peter has since shown up to assist Perry on several other missions.

    Dennis the Rogue Rabbit 

A former O.W.C.A. agent turned mercenary. Currently incarcerated, but occasionally escapes to serve as one of Perry's more challenging opponents. Candace, meanwhile, sees him as a much more desirable pet than Perry.

    Balloony 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ml8wcsy.jpg
A balloon that Doofenshmirtz obtained as a child. He painted a face on it and considered it his friend, but one day it drifted away. Doofenshmirtz would learn as an adult that Balloony had floated into outer space and been captured by the alien poacher Mitch, but was disappointed when the balloon "refused" to follow him any longer.
  • Animate Inanimate Object: This was ambiguous in his first appearance, but "Meapless in Seattle" appears to confirm that he does have a mind of his own.
  • Companion Cube: A balloon that Doofenshmirtz considered to be his best childhood friend.
  • Disney Death: In "Meapless in Seattle". Then double subverted in "This is Your Backstory".
  • The Dragon: To Mitch in "Meapless in Seattle".
  • Killed Off for Real: In "This is Your Backstory".
  • Non-Standard Character Design: It's just a balloon with a face... a disturbingly realistically-rendered face.
  • Powered Armor: He wears one of these in "Meapless in Seattle". Technically it doesn't serve well as armor (he is still entirely unprotected), but it allows him to move more efficiently and manipulate objects.
  • Face–Heel Turn: With respect to Doofenshmirtz.
  • Heel–Face Turn: With respect to Doofenshmirtz in "Meapless in Seattle".
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In "Meapless in Seattle".
  • Redemption Equals Death: In "Meapless in Seattle".
  • The Speechless: Has some ambiguously sentient traits, but definitely doesn't talk.
