"MOM! Phineas and Ferb are making a page about me on this wiki!"
Paranoid yet Relatable Teenage Scapegoat
Media of origin:
Phineas and Ferb
Candace Gertrude Flynn is the deuteragonist (sometimes main antagonist), and usually the anti-hero of the Disney Channel animated series Phineas and Ferb, as well as the titular main protagonist of the second movie "Candace Against the Universe". She is the sister of Phineas Flynn and the stepsister of Ferb Fletcher, as well as the older daughter of the Flynn-Fletcher family. She is voiced by Ashley Tisdale.
Why She Shouldn’t Be Busted
She is nicely voiced by Ashley Tisdale.
She is not always busting her brothers; she is mostly shown caring for them. In the second movie "Candace Against the Universe", for example, she would have not chosen better little brothers if Phineas and Ferb consider her the World's #1 Big Sister and claim that their summer vacation won't be fun without her.
She may be like most teenage girls, but unlike most teenage girls, she's also obsessed with "busting" her brothers for their outlandish schemes.
Her relationship with Jeremy fits well.
She has a fantastic singing voice due to her voice actress being a singer, too.
Her attempts to bust her brothers and never succeed are hilarious.
She’s at least more tolerable than Doofenshmirtz's parents, who never even cared for their son, proven when she even admitted in Traffic Cam Caper that Phineas may have been a pain, but deep down inside, he is a good brother.
She is definitely one of the best parts of the show. Bar none!
She finally got the role as the titular main protagonist in "Candace Against the Universe", where she gets tremendous character development.
"IT'S ME AGAINST THE UNIVERSE!"
She is a quite relatable character, and it sympathetic once you get to know her.
''MOM! Phineas and Ferb are making a title sequence!!"
Like Dexter and Jimmy Neutron, she is the embodiment of a jerk with a heart of gold, as the only reason she wants her brothers busted is, oddly enough, because she loves said brothers deep down, and she wouldn’t trade them for the universe.
Candace's physical abilities were surprisingly awesome like acrobatics, and wrestling alligators, along the bravery to face dangers with her brothers saying she is special to them.
She has hilariously unwavering paranoia to not stop busting, despite her failures, proving how persistent she is.
She can be attractive to some.
Intentional Bad Qualities That Should Be Busted
She can be irritating and detestable at some points, mainly because of her impulsive obsession with busting her brothers. Also, the times when she treats them like crap can sometimes make her unlikable to some.
Some of her sneaky facial expressions do look annoying.
A lot of times, she can be pretty paranoid as she often thinks that her brothers' inventions are for bad reasons, even though they're clearly not.
She would usually be a punching bag due to either bad luck or by being tormented by Suzy.
Although she sometimes deserves it, it’s still unfair.
She can be a killjoy a fair amount of times in the series.
Sometimes, she does use her brothers' intelligence for selfish purposes.
Sometimes, she does get busted for something she doesn’t deserve to get busted for (e.g. "Candace Gets Busted").
She was at her absolute worst in "Phineas and Ferb Get Busted!", due to getting the boys in trouble with their mother and getting them sent to military school. Thankfully, she did redeem herself and save her brothers after realizing that the military school is dangerous after all (you gotta love the irony).
She was a bit unlikable in Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel, even though she meant well, when they first attempted to get the Marvel heroes back, she accidentally got their powers swapped, after their fight at the mall, She later turns Baljeet into a Hulk-like monster, She fortunately redeemed herself after Phineas scolded her, she discovered that their powers were in space and managed to get them back.
