Voiced by: Vincent Martella

    Candace Flynn-2 

Candace Flynn (2nd Dimension)

"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.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Doof-2 and his family, as they took over their Tri-State Area.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: The leader of the Resistance and easily one of the biggest badasses in the entire series. 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.
  • Retired Badass: At the end of "Tales of the Resistance", she resigns and decides to leave the pursuit of the Doofenshmirtz family 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.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Of all the people involved with the Resistance, she is the one who has the hardest time adapting to civilian life, fearing that evil will be striking Danville again even with Doofenshmirtz in prison. By the end of "Tales from the Resistance" she's making progress on getting over it, retiring as leader of the Resistance and making room in her life for a relationship with Jeremy.
  • 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.

    Isabella Garcia-Shaprio-2 

Isabella Garcia-Shaprio (2nd Dimension)

"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.

    Baljeet Tjinder-2 

Baljeet Tjinder (2nd Dimension)

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

    Buford Van Stomm-2 

Buford Van Stomm (2nd Dimension)

"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 leaves the first dimension protagonists to be captured, 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.

    Heinz Doofenshmirtz-2 

Heinz Doofenshmirtz (2nd Dimension)

"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.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Candace-2.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: He managed to take over his Tri-State Area and ruled it with an iron fist for 5 years. Subverted in the film ending, where his plot to invade the original Tri-State Area is foiled, leading to his arrest, though he would later escape (with the help of his family) 2 months later.
  • 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.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Humorously Subverted. He lost his toy train, and that's it.
  • Diabolical Mastermind: Far more intelligent than his original counterpart, as he was able to create his mook army to take over his Tri-State Area by force and maintain his power for 5 years. He was also clever enough to defeat Perry-2 and turn him into his loyal Dragon, and formulated a ruse of turning the original Perry into another Dragon to lure the original Phineas and Ferb into a trap. He even staged a fake divorce with Charlene-2 to satisfy his family's safety and finances in case he would be overthrown and imprisoned.
  • 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 Vanessa-2. In addition, he is also protective of Charlene-2 as they pretended to be divorced in order to ensure both Charlene-2 and Vanessa-2's safety in case he would be defeated.
  • Evil Counterpart: Far more scheming and devious than Doof-1. Taken even further when his prime counterpart eventually ends up becoming a Big Good in his dimension.
  • Evil Is Hammy
  • Evil Is Petty: The reason why he became an evil overlord? He lost his choo-choo train when he was younger.
  • Evil Laugh: Regularly bursts into maniacal laughter.
  • Eviler Than Thou: To Doof-1. Doof-1 even says this trope word for word.
    Doof-2: (after seeing that Doof-1 is incompetent) You know, I'm starting to see why you haven't become ruler in your dimension.
    Doof-1: All right, Mr. Evil-Than-Thou. Just how did you manage to take over your Tri-State Area anyway?
    Doof-2: (shows his army of Norm Bots) Simple, I used an army of big scary robots.
  • Evil Wears Black: His clothes and eye patch are black.
  • 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 Parents: In spite of being disappointed of Vanessa-2's lack of interest in evil and banishing any boy who shows an interest in her, Doof-2 is very civil towards Vanessa-2, as he doesn't mind letting her take his blimp to head for Charlene-2's penthouse. He even entrusted Vanessa-2 to remain with Charlene-2 in case he would be locked away.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a scar across his eye that somehow goes over his eyepatch as pointed out by Doof-1:
    Doof-1: You know, I can't help but notice that your scar goes over your eyepatch.
    Doof-2: Yeah......
    Doof-1: ......nothing.
  • 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, as he ends up being arrested and taken to prison. Come "Tales of the Resistance", however, he escapes with his family.
  • Large Ham
  • Laughably Evil: A good example of a villain who is both funny and genuinely threatening.
  • Lean and Mean: As skinny as the original Doof, but even worse than him.
  • Mad Scientist: Created a robot army to take over his Tri-State Area and converted his nemesis into a cyborg. Even remade his Tri-State Area into his own image, as it happens to be more technologically advanced than the original one.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Doof-2 appears very reliant on his Dragon and his Mecha-Mooks to do his dirty work, though he did subvert this in a fashion on two occasions: he personally fought against Phineas (who has little combat experience) during which his mooks were preoccupied fighting against Phineas and Ferb's inventions, and he personally piloted a giant robot in an attempt to kill Perry and the boys after they foiled his plan. However, 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. However, he seems to be somewhat impressed with Vanessa-2's boyfriend Tony Marzulo for assisting his family's escape, as he is last seen grinning at Tony as they escape from Resistance custody, despite admitting earlier that he briefly banished him.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Downplayed, as despite the fact that regaining his toy train is enough to remove his evil makes him no more mature than the original Doofenshmirtz, he is quite capable of maintaining a mature relationship with his wife Charlene-2.
  • Simpleton Voice: Subverted in that he's actually pretty clever.
  • 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", though Doof-2 is way far from that given to his intelligent nature.
  • Unholy Matrimony: With Charlene-2.
  • Villains Never Lie: Tells Perry-1 that he will spare Phineas and Ferb if Perry-1 surrenders to him, to which Perry-1 obliges. However, Doof-2 didn't realize that Doof-1 needed the boys' help to fix his machine until the latter told him, which made Doof-2 upset that he has to hunt down the boys; implying that he was intending to spare the boys until the moment. He's not exactly apologetic about the situation, though.
    Doof-2: (after seeing that Doof's machine isn't working) That's it?
    Doof-1: Well, now that I think about it, those two boys made some modifications to my design that may have allowed it.... you know.... to work.
    Doof-2: (frustrated) Great! Now I need those two boys?! (......) Listen, Perry the Platypus, I know I told you that if you'd turn yourself in, I wouldn't hurt your friends, but change of plans. Now I need to hunt them down, which might involve a little hurting. I know that makes me a liar, but hello? Evil!
  • Villain Song: Along with Doof-1, he has "A Brand New Best Friend", and also gets a verse in "Kick It Up A Notch". He does so again with his wife Charlene in "All the Convoluted Reasons We Pretend to Be Divorced".
  • Would Hurt a Child: He tried to kill Phineas and Ferb several times, and at one point, threatens to turn Phineas into a cyborg.

  • Badass Mustache: Like Monogram-1.
  • Big Ol' Unibrow: Like Monogram-1.
  • Creator Cameo: Voiced by one of the creators of the show.
  • Deep Cover Agent: Judging by the fact that he appears to be acquainted with the Resistance.
  • The Dog Bites Back: This "indentured executive assistant" is the one who leads the arrest of Doof-2 at the end.
  • Insistent Terminology: He's an indentured executive assistant under Doof-2, not a slave.
  • The Leader: Of at least one division in O.W.C.A., and later the Resistance following the Doofenshmirtz family's escape and Candace-2's resignation.
  • Majorly Awesome: In O.W.C.A.
  • Mission Control: Communicates with Candace-2 (and presumably his animal agents) by video call.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Tries to encourage Candace-2 to lighten up and have fun in the aftermath of Doofenshmirtz-2's defeat, despite the fact that most of his agents were still MIA.

The Firestorm Girls

Gretchen-2: "I'm on it."
Voiced by: Ariel Winter (Gretchen-2)note 

A squad of resistance fighters that aid Candace-2. Second dimension version of the Fireside Girls.

Voiced by: John Viener, Kevin Michael Richardson (menacing voice)

  • 2D Visuals, 3D Effects: They're rendered in 3D.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: This is one of their two modes. In this mode, they play it even more so than Norm-1.
  • Dirty Cop: Assigned to keep the entire Tri-State Area in check under Doof-2's orders, including the local streets.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Norm-1, but more menacing and strong in numbers.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: Can shoot these from their arm cannons.
  • Giant Mooks: An army of large robots.
  • Glass Cannon: They are well-armed, but it is not difficult to destroy them if one is familiar with their weak spots.
  • Mecha-Mooks: For Doofenshmirtz-2.
  • Power Floats: Instead of walking, they hover above the ground.
  • Split Personality: Switch between a Cloudcuckoolander mode and a more serious, menacing one.
  • Stepford Smiler: In Cuckoolander mode.
    "Stop where you are! You cannot leave. (reverts to Norm mode) I use aggression to mask my insecurities!"
  • The Strength of Ten Men: They are able to counter an ambush set up by 12 animal agents, even one of them is able to ram a car into the wall of a building during the invasion.
  • Would Hurt a Child: They tried to capture and/or kill Phineas and Ferb, as well as the Resistance, several times under Doof-2's orders.
  • Zerg Rush: The main threat they pose comes from the fact that there are so many of them.

    Charlene Doofenshmirtz-2 

Charlene Doofenshmirtz (2nd Dimension)

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

  • Action Mom: Vanessa-2's mother and much more proficient in battle than Doof-2.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl
  • Amicable Exes: Subverted... because she and Doof-2 were never divorced at all.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: She managed to free her husband from prison and escape with him (and their daughter) to evade arrest.
  • Big Bad: Of the episode sequel.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Not as much in-universe, as she quickly reveals herself to be evil as her husband. 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.
    Candace-2: Okay, I get it, you're still married. But why would you send the ants to the picnic? You had to know we'd come after you.
    Charlene-2: Of course. And I also knew you would use Heinz to get in the building, bringing my husband back to me and getting you here, so I could get the drop on you.
    Candace-2: A lot of convoluted reasons there, too.
  • Dark Action Girl: Surprisingly handy with a bo staff. She hold her own against Candace-2.
  • Defiant to the End: Even when defeat is imminent, she refuses to go down without a fight.
  • Diabolical Mastermind: Able to turn several animal agents into cyborgs by using her husband's technology to enforce her family's reign in the Tri-State Area for 5 years. She even staged a fake divorce with Doof-2 to satisfy their family's safety and finances in case he would be overthrown, and would use the advantage to help him escape from prison.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She and Doof-2 never divorced. Also evidenced by the fact that Vanessa-2 voluntarily helped her and Doof-2 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, just like her husband.
  • Good Parents: Just like Doof-2, Charlene-2 is very civil towards Vanessa-2, even being entrusted by Doof-2 to take full custody of her in case he would be locked away.
  • Happily Married: Albeit she and Doof-2 prefer to live separately.
  • Lean and Mean
  • Karma Houdini: Vanessa-2 helps her and Doof-2 escape when they're on the verge of defeat.
  • Mad Scientist: Implied by the fact that she transformed the animal agents into cyborgs and created the giant insect robots to attack the Resistance.
  • Simple Staff: Quite capable of wielding one.
  • Sugary Malice: She acts like a good-natured wife and mother, but it does nothing to hide the cold-hearted mastermind that she really is; despite the fact that she genuinely does care for her husband and daughter.
  • Unholy Matrimony: With Doof-2.
  • Villain Song: Along with her husband, she has "All the Convoluted Reasons We Pretend to Be Divorced".
  • Would Hurt a Child: She once fired a grenade at the Resistance when they infiltrate her penthouse, though, they evaded the shot. She even attempted to turn Phineas-2, Ferb-2, and Candace-2 into cyborgs after capturing them.

    Vanessa Doofenshmirtz-2 

Vanessa Doofenshmirtz (2nd Dimension)

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

  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Not as much in-universe, as she revealed herself to be evil as her parents.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: She managed to help her parents evade arrest by having her boyfriend to drive them away in a hover-craft.
  • 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.
  • Diabolical Mastermind: Formulated a clever escape plan for her family in case they would be taken into custody.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Despite her lack of interest of doing evil, Vanessa-2 reveals to care for her parents, even having her boyfriend (who was previously banished by her father) to help them all escape from custody.
  • Evil Counterpart: A somewhat darker version of Vanessa-1.
  • Faux Affably Evil: As sarcastic as Vanessa-1, but happens to be more sinister and conniving, just like her parents.
  • Karma Houdini
  • Non-Action Girl: Usually leaves her parents and their mook armies to do their dirty work, though she did personally help her parents escape from custody in case they face defeat.
  • Spanner in the Works: The Resistance did not account for the possibility of her coming to her parents' aid.

How well does it match the trope?
