Vanessa Doofenshmirtz is the love interest of Ferb and the daughter of Dr. Doofenshmirtz on Phineas and Ferb. She is a 16 year old girl who is annoyed at her dad trying to do evil and tries to bust him to her mom, similar to Candace with Phineas and Ferb and her mom. Vanessa has blue eyes, dark brown hair, which she wears long and freely down her back. She wears a tight-fitting black leather coat, black long pants and black calf-high boots.She is voiced by Olivia Olson.
Vanessa is sharp and sarcastic. Her behavior is comparable to that of a typical teenager. She cares about her reputation, having been upset when her clothes were mistakenly switched with Candace's. Vanessa has always been found with the "punk" or "goth" crowd, as seen in her childhood photos and her friends' appearances ("Hail Doofania!", "Dude, We're Getting the Band Back Together", "Brain Drain").
It is evident that she desires to have a car of her own. She once tried to prove herself responsible enough to own a car by trying to acquire a rare element, Pizzazium Infinionite, in the Superduper Mega Superstore for her father when he needed it . She has also shown this when he told her he'd brought her a gift which would be in his words, 'The key to her happiness', openly hoping for a car, but dismayed to find out it was a Mary McGuffin doll she had asked for when she was seven.
She is or was on her school's swimming team. She also performed ballet as a young girl and was in a school production
Although she tries to deny it when around her father, she is evil to a small, yet significant extent. She has aided in Heinz's schemes on rare occasions, zapping pigeons with a hypnotic device as part of his plan to have them release their fecal waste upon the mayor on one and picking up blueprints for his "Space laser-inator" he would use to control Danville on another She'd even snatched a Mary McGuffin doll from a little girl when she felt the need to keep her father's gift to her The most prominent display of this trait was during the Summer Solstice while she was in Paris, when she "rented" a scooter, threatened Major Monogram with a hairdryer acting as if it was a weapon, and hijacked Agent P's hover car to make her escape. Though largely in denial of the evil inherited from her father, she has admitted her possession of it.
