"I'll do whatever it takes to protect the ones I love."
Voiced by: Ashley Tisdale, Dan Povenmire (allergy-affected voice)

Candace from the second dimension.
  • Action Girl: One only needs to see Candace-2's first encounter with the Norm-bots for proof.
  • Alternate Universe Reed Richards Is Awesome: Shows off what Candace can do when her busting instincts are turned on someone who actually deserves it.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: The leader of the Resistance and easily one of the biggest Badasses in the entire series.
  • Badass: The biggest in the movie. Everything she does is a moment of awesome, but especially saving the first dimension characters by pushing a giant lawn gnome off of a ledge, jumping on it as it falls, and using a pair of grappling hooks to turn it into a robot wrecking ball.
  • Badass in Distress: She was captured after returning to help the first dimension protagonists escape from Doof-2. In "Tales of the Resistance", Phineas-2 and Ferb-2 even come up with a plan that invokes this, knowing that Candace-2 and Platyborg are considered the biggest threats to the Doofenshmirtzes and Charlene-2 will let her guard down if she thinks both of them have been neutralized.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Yes. And it looks pretty darn good on her. To bottom this off, she also gets a Zettai Ryouiki upgrade.
    Candace: Is that me? I look good.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Rescuing the first dimension kids and Doof and handing Phineas the dimensional remote, in a very Badass manner.
  • Big Good: Of the movie, as the Resistance leader.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Much more obvious than in Candace-1. In fact, it is her primary obsession along with overthrowing Doof-2. Possibly Deconstructed, when she had to leave the first dimension kids on their own, making her own brothers of utmost importance above all. She does go back to save them, however.
  • Black Armband Of Leadership: She has one.
  • Cool Shades: She sports these.
  • Creator Cameo: Like Candace-1, she is shown to be allergic to wild parsnip, which gives her a gruff voice done by Dan Povenmire.
  • Deep Cover Agent: Her brothers don't discover she's the Resistance leader until the events of the movie.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Almost always serious and reserved, even after Doofenshmirtz's defeat. Her character arc involves her realizing that she can devote her life to more social activities, despite the Doofenshmirtzes being on the run.
  • Determinator: Like Candace-1.
  • Disappeared Dad: No mention is ever made of her biological father.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes: It takes some encouragement, but it is implied she eventually starts a relationship with Jeremy-2.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Not exactly a jerk, but she's willing to sacrifice the first dimension protagonists to keep her own brothers safe, not to mention being reluctant to help the first dimension Phineas and Ferb at first until Phineas-2 pleaded with her. She later returns and saves the first dimension characters.
  • Knight Templar Big Sister: Goes to extremes to protect her brothers, even if it means sacrificing their alternate counterparts.
  • Lady of War: Takes down enemies with both brutality and grace.
  • Long Neck: Like Candace-1.
  • Married to the Job: Her dedication to fighting in the Resistance prevented her from even considering any type of romantic relationship prior to Doofenshmirtz's defeat. Even after his defeat, it took a while for her to break out of her vigilant routine.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She looks -and sounds- more sexy than Candace-1.
  • Not So Stoic: When she is rescued from prison, hints of Candace's inherent Jeremy infatuation begin to surface. And, in the same scene, she gives both of her brothers a thank-you hug, showing that she does have a softer side.
  • Rebel Leader: The Resistance leader.
  • Red-Headed Heroine: Has red hair.
  • Retired Badass: At the end of "Tales of the Resistance", she resigns and decides to leave the pursuit of the Doofenshmirtzes up to the rescued O.W.C.A. agents, though she does also say that she'll still be ready to help them out if they ever need her.
  • Shoot the Dog: She leaves the first dimension kids on their own, at first, for the safety of her own brothers.
  • Simple Staff: Her Weapon of Choice.
  • Supporting Protagonist: She gets the most focus and character development out of all the second dimension characters, despite the series being named after her brothers.
  • The Stoic: To a different extent than her stepbrother, but yes.
  • Utility Belt: Wears one as part of her usual outfit.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Her allergy to wild parsnip causes this.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Phineas-2 calls her out when she abandons the first dimension protagonists to ensure the safety of her own brothers.

     Second Dimension Isabella 

Second Dimension Isabella

"Alright girls, release them."
Voiced by: Alyson Stoner


  • Action Girl: Technically she doesn't get in on much action in the movie, but she appears to be this based on her general personality and rank in the Resistance. She does get more time to shine in "Tales of the Resistance".
  • Alternate Universe Reed Richards Is Awesome: Fights in the Resistance as second in command.
  • Badass Adorable: Helps Candace-2 take down some giant robotic ants in "Tales of the Resistance", and is shown to have some mad dodging skills while facing the animal cyborgs.
  • Catch Phrase: Like Isabella-1, but she tends to use a far more serious tone when saying it.
  • Deep Cover Agent: A member of the Resistance.
  • The Heart: Not only does she serve as Candace-2's trusted second in command in the Resistance, she's also the one who suggests to Candace-2 that her devotion to her job is getting in the way of her enjoying other things in life.
  • The Lancer: To Candace-2.
  • Little Miss Badass: Along with all the other Firestorm girls.
  • Nice Girl: She puts on a no-nonsense demeanor at first, but is actually friendly and helpful to the first dimension characters after she realizes they're not a threat.
  • Ship Tease: In the (granted, probably not fully canon) online game, with Ferb.
    • Interestingly, the (granted, also probably not fully canon) video game includes a more subtle Ship Tease with Phineas.
  • Sugar and Ice Personality: Serious and reserved on the job, open and friendly outside of it.
  • Twofer Token Minority: Hispanic and Jewish.

     Second Dimension Baljeet 

Second Dimension Baljeet

"That's Dr. Baljeet to you!"
Voiced by: Maulik Pancholy


     Second Dimension Buford 

Second Dimension Buford

"I used to be in The Resistance, but I got so good at it, that I started resisting them."
Voiced by: Bobby Gaylor


  • Alternate Universe Reed Richards Is Awesome: Fights in the Resistance.
  • Amazon Chaser: Apparently has a crush on Candace-2.
  • The Big Guy: Brash and physically oriented.
  • Creator Cameo: Voiced by one of the writers on the show.
  • Deep Cover Agent: As a member of the Resistance.
  • Informed Attribute: We never really see exactly how he "resists the Resistance" in spite of multiple references to it. He even accompanies the bona fide Resistance members on their mission voluntarily. This is much like how the first dimension Buford "bullies" the first dimension kids, but does not really do much to show for it.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: He appears to be feeling bad after Candace-2 betrays the first dimension protagonists, but he was mostly just regretting not getting his nachos.
  • Precocious Crush: To Candace-2. More evident than his First Dimension counterpart.
  • Rebellious Rebel: He got so good at resisting he started resisting the Resistance.
  • Stout Strength: Strong enough to rip a Norm-Bot open with his bare hands.
  • Unfortunate Names: His last name is Dutch for "of the stupid" (after removing the second "m" from Stomm).
  • Unscrupulous Hero: Claims to resist the Resistance, but is ultimately on their side.

     Second Dimension Doofenshmirtz 

Second Dimension Doofenshmirtz

"Oh well, time to start the invasion! And somebody get me a muffin!"
Voiced by: Dan Povenmire


  • Amicable Exes: Subverted... because he and Charlene-2 were never divorced at all.
  • Beard of Evil: Unlike Doofenshmirtz-1, he is evidently capable of growing facial hair.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He may be more competent than Doof-1, but he's just as wacky.
  • Big Bad: Of The Movie.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Makes no secret that he is being evil and relishes it.
  • Catch Phrase: Even after submitting his own nemesis to Unwilling Roboticisation, he can still scream "Curse you, Perry the Platypus!" without skipping a beat when Perry-1 foils him.
  • Conspiracy Placement: Like Doofenshmirtz-1.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He has a bowl of rice pudding on hand... just in case an alternate version of himself shows up. And like Doof-1, he collects coins in case vending machines take over the world.
  • Creator Cameo: Voiced by one of the show's creators.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: Probably the main reason he was more successful than Doof-1.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Humorously Subverted. He lost his toy train, and that's it.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Like Doofenshmirtz-1, he is disgusted by rice pudding. It is one of the ways he confirms that Doofenshmirtz-1 is an alternate counterpart of himself.
  • Easily Forgiven: Subverted.
  • Emperor Scientist: He did become one thanks (at least in part) for being able to recognize Perry without the hat.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: A deleted scene shows that he is protective of his daughter. In addition, he and Charlene-2 never divorced.
  • Evil Is Hammy
  • Evil Is Petty
  • Evil Laugh: Regularly bursts into maniacal laughter.
  • Eviler Than Thou: To Doof-1. Doof-1 even says this trope word for word.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Due to having lost his eye at some point in the past.
  • Faux Affably Evil: As silly as Doofenshmirtz-1, but more ruthless and successful as a villain.
  • Freudian Excuse: He lost his toy train. ...That's it. A direct contrast to Doof-1 and his many, sometimes contradicting, backstories.
  • Funny Foreigner
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a scar across his eye that somehow goes over his eyepatch.
  • Happily Married: In this universe his divorce with Charlene is only a ruse designed to help her escape prison in case he's overthrown.
  • Heel-Face Turn: But quickly turned back around in "Tales of the Resistance".
  • Karma Houdini: Subverted. Come "Tales of the Resistance", however, he slips away.
  • Large Ham
  • Laughably Evil: A good example of a villain who is both funny and genuinely threatening.
  • Mad Scientist: Created a robot army to take over the Tri-State Area and converted his nemesis into a cyborg.
  • Man Child: No more mature than Doofenshmirtz-1. Notably, the fact that regaining his toy train is enough to remove his evil.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: He appears very reliant on his Mecha-Mooks to do his dirty work. The only time we see him get into action himself was against a boy with little combat experience (Phineas), and during which his mooks were preoccupied with being curb-stomped by Phineas and Ferb's inventions. When faced with a foe who is clearly a threat (such as Candace-2), he quickly flees, even when backed up by Charlene-2.
  • Overprotective Dad: Even more extreme than Doof-1. A deleted scene reveals that he uses his power to banish any boy who shows an interest in his daughter.
  • Simpleton Voice: Subverted in that he's actually Dangerously Genre Savvy.
  • Sinister Schnoz: And unlike Doofenshmirtz-1, he can actually claim to be sinister.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": There is no C in his surname.
  • Take Over the City: And he succeeded, too.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Like Doofenshmirtz-1, he is fond of almond brittle.
  • Unfortunate Names: "Doof" is German for "stupid".
  • Unholy Matrimony: With Charlene-2.
  • Villains Never Lie: Tells Perry-1 that he will spare Phineas and Ferb if Perry-1 surrenders to him, only to capture them later anyway. Granted, he didn't realize that he needed Phineas's help until after Perry took him up on it. He's not exactly apologetic about the situation, though.
  • Villain Song: Along with Doof-1, he has "A Brand New Best Friend", and also gets a verse in "Kick It Up A Notch".
  • Would Hurt a Child: Tries to kill Phineas and Ferb multiple times and at one point threatens to turn Phineas into a cyborg.

     Second Dimension Charlene 

Second Dimension Charlene

"The day isn't over yet, dear."
Voiced by: Allison Janney

  • Action Mom: Vanessa's mother and much more proficient in battle than Heinz-2.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl
  • Amicable Exes: Subverted... because she and Heinz-2 were never divorced at all.
  • Badass: Anyone who can hold their own against Candace-2 should automatically qualify.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Not as much in-universe, as she quickly reveals herself to be evil. However she can be considered a meta example in that she is one of the few second dimension characters who shares the exact same attire and look as her first dimension counterpart, yet is the most distinct from said counterpart in morality and motivations.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: Came up with an elaborate plan to free Heinz-2 from prison and return him to his evil ways.
  • Dark Action Girl: Surprisingly handy with a bo staff.
  • Defiant to the End: Even when defeat is imminent, she refuses to go down without a fight.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She and Heinz-2 never divorced. Also evidenced by the fact that Vanessa-2 voluntarily helped her escape from the Resistance.
  • Evil Counterpart: Compare Charlene-1, who doesn't consider anyone to be evil.
  • Evil Is Petty: Gets distracted during a fight because a mouse agent clips her manicure.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Addresses others with terms of endearment and rarely indulges in Large Ham villainous behavior, but is in fact cruel and conniving.
  • Happily Married: Albeit she and Doofenshmirtz prefer to live separately.
  • Karma Houdini: Vanessa-2 helps her and Heinz-2 escape when they're on the verge of defeat.
  • Mad Scientist: Implied by the fact that she transformed the animal agents into cyborgs.
  • Simple Staff: Quite capable of wielding one.
  • Unholy Matrimony: With Doofenshmirtz-2.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Shoots a grenade at the Resistance when they infiltrate her penthouse.

     Second Dimension Vanessa 

Second Dimension Vanessa

"Listen, Mom, Dad, come here. You guys, I'm only gonna say this once. RUN!!!"
Voiced by: Olivia Olson

  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Even counting her deleted scene in the movie, she only appears in a couple of short segments with little relevance to the main plot. Until her final scene, in which she saves her parents from arrest, leaving the second dimension story arc on a Sequel Hook.
  • Daddy's Little Villain: Like her first dimension counterpart, she subverts this in that she appears to have little interest in doing evil directly... but also like her first dimension counterpart, she is willing to help her criminal parents escape arrest when they are captured.
  • Spanner in the Works: The Resistance did not account for the possibility of her coming to her parents' aid.
  • Woman in Black: She dresses entirely in black.
