He is voiced by Dee Bradley Baker.
Perry is a platypus with teal fur, brown eyes, a bright orange duck-bill, and an orange beavertail. He stands on his hind legs while working as an agent, but rests on all four while acting like a pet. While working as an agent, Perry wears a brown fedora with a black strap.
- Martial Arts: He is very skilled in martial arts able to take on Doof and then two criminals
- Underwater Breathing: as a platypus he can breathe underwater
Before and during the summer that took place before Milo Murphy's Law, he would be undercover as the pet of his host family, the Flynn-Fletchers, until he would be called on (almost daily) by Major Monogram to thwart Dr. Doofenshmirtz's daily scheme (usually including an inator).
In The Phineas and Ferb Effect, Perry jumps in through Doofenshmirtz' ceiling and meets Orton, Cavendish, Dakota, Diogee, and Milo. He then leaves with Milo and Diogee to retrieve a clock needed to save the world. Upon returning, he travels back in time with Doofenshmirtz, Orton, Cavendish, and Dakota to help retrieve some orange soda and save the world. Eventually, Perry ends up amidst a giant battle and does his part in stopping the Pistachions alongside Diogee as the events play out and the timeline is restored.
In The Ticking Clock, Perry follows Doofenshmirtz to make sure his latest charitable scheme doesn't cause too much damage.
In Sick Day, Perry was assigned a mission to undo any damage Doofenshmirtz causes while trying to do good, and spent the day pretending to hang out with him. He expresses deep remorse when Doofenshmirtz finds out and leaves for good.
Perry and Doofenshmirtz share a long history together, having been nemesis' before Doofenshmirtz gave up evil. The two of them are close, and while the other members of their group struggled to pass the time in the time stream, Perry and Doofenshmirtz quietly enjoyed a game of 'Go fish' with each other, playing by passing a single hot sauce packet back and forth between them. Perry dove off the makeshift plane with a grappling hook to save Doofenshmirtz before he could meet his doom, having accidentally fallen off when it was hit by a projectile.
Perry acts as a confidant to Doofenshmirtz and spends time with him to listen to his plans in doing good, even prompting him to continue the conversation when he's getting to the point.
In spite of this, Perry's dedication to his mission and saving the city lead to a long day of pretending he was spending time with Doofenshmirtz so that the latter would remain blissfully ignorant of the problems he was causing. Perry continuously distracted Doofenshmirtz with trivial things while secretly destroying the inators he'd built, all the while acting surprised when the disasters happened.
Perry is devastated when Doofenshmirtz finds out that he was working the entire time, and expresses deep remorse when his former nemesis ends their relationship over it.
Perry began treating Diogee as an ally immediately, trusting him to run away with the clock they needed while Perry could fend off the Pistachions, and motioning for him to stick together and follow him into the battle. The two of them worked well together to help fight against the Pistachions.
Perry elected to travel to Milo's house with him during the second Pistachion invasion so that he could retrieve a clock. While they were there, he struggled to keep Murphy's Law from exposing them, and afterward helped fend off the Pistachions so that they could escape, grabbing Milo before using his jet pack to leave the house through the roof. Perry later saved Milo, Phineas, and Ferb from a Pistachion, but promptly pretended to be a regular platypus because his owners were with the boy.

“Perry the Platypus?!”
“He's either saying he's going with you, or he regrets the impulsive mistakes of his youth. I-I'm not sure.”
“I don't know what everybody's so gripey about. Perry the Platypus and I are having a grand old time playing Go Fish with hot sauce packets.”
“Oh, hey, Perry! That's my pet platypus. He doesn't do much.”

- He is voiced by Dee Bradley Baker, who also voices Diogee.
- Two references to Perry appeared in Season 1 of Milo Murphy's law - the first being teal platypus pajamas owned by Milo Murphy in We're Going to the Zoo, and the second being a child dressed up in a teal platypus costume in Milo Murphy's Halloween Scream-A-Torium!.
- In reality, platypuses have brown fur — just like many land mammals. Teal being a weird fur color for a platypus was brought up in We're Going to the Zoo, in which Sara asked about the odd color of Milo's platypus pajamas, which in turn was referencing Perry.
- The only characters outside of O.W.C.A. who know both of his identities are Stacy, who learned about his secret identity in Phineas and Ferb episode Happy Birthday, Isabella, and Milo Murphy and Diogee in The Phineas and Ferb Effect. Phineas, Ferb, Candace, and their friends generally only interact with him as a pet, as Perry has to be relocated once his family knows about his secret identity.
- He is usually the only one to enter his lair.
- He gets paid by OWCA, but it is unknown how he uses that money since outside of work Perry has to act like a mindless animal.
