L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. (or full name, the League Of Villainous Evildoers Maniacally United For Frightening Investments in Naughtiness) is a group of characters from Phineas and Ferb and act as the main antagonists in the first season of The Knights of the Multiverse. They are a paramilitary criminal organization with one simple mission: to take over the world (of course!). They originally operated in the shadows, but after the failed launch of the Dabude battle platforms, they became much more active in their plans, and began seeking the destruction of The Knights after foiling their plans over and over again. When the powerful robot Raideen emerged from its decade-long slumber to aid them, they started focusing on making their creations bigger, better, and deadlier.

History

Pre-Series

During Earth Prime's previous summer season, Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz brought together dozens of mad scientists to create an organization dedicated to villainy, which was mostly just to cause general annoyances around the Tri-State area. That all changed the day Doofenshmirtz created the -Inator, a device that pulled the Earth away from the sun with a tractor beam that uses Jupiter's mass as an anchor. With O.W.C.A. and the world leaders in a state of panic, Rodney and the others saw this as a perfect chance to enact their plan of world domination. Capturing all the disoriented O.W.C.A. agents (except for Perry) and imprisoned them in their warehouse to keep them out of the way. Behind everyone's back, though, Rodney used Doof's -Inator blueprints to create an -Inizor ten times the size and strength of his that will move the Earth even further away from the sun, sending the Earth into a new Ice Age if L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N.'s demands are not met (and also making sure to disable the reverse switch and self-destruct button). This announcement horrified and disturbed the entire world, even causing Doofenshmirtz to realize that the situation is getting out of hand. Later, Rodney called the world leaders to see that their demands have been fully met, which they all have, except for one: the world's supply of pretzels. Staying true to his word, Rodney smugly activated his -inizor, moving the Earth into perpetual winter. While gloating over his evil plan coming to a success, Doofenshmirtz began to have second thoughts, and seeing that Rodney had gone completely mad with power, the two broke into a fight, with Rodney fully intent on creating a new Ice Age, threatening millions of lives. After the O.W.C.A. agents are freed by Perry and fight most of the scientists, sending a good number of them fleeing the complex, Rodney manages to activate his machine, only for an infuriated Doofenshmirtz to knock him unconscious with a mop, then destroying the -Inizor with assistance from the other O.W.C.A. agents. With the -Inizor destroyed and the Earth put back in rotation (thanks to unknown assistance from Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher), several of the group's key members were arrested and sentenced to life imprisonment for their crimes against humanity.

Season 1

After several months of imprisonment for his crimes, several of the escaped L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. members held a large-scale prison break, allowing Rodney and the other imprisoned scientists to escape. Upon being informed of the events of the mini-series (referred to as the Unicron Wars), the group's forces quickly reorganized to concentrate on examining this phenomena, and to conceive new dastardly plans for world domination, even if that meant "borrowing" some ideas from the Mazinger & Getter teams.

Creations

Super Robots

L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N.'s main force consists of Super Robots. Basing them off of the Kikaiju of old by the great Dr. Hell, they're generally created from Super Alloy Z (much like the Mazinger robots) and powered by atomic energy, and to combat against forces like the Super Robots used by the Crystal Knights, each mech uses some type of gimmick, from super strength to an enormous arsenal of weaponry. Most of them use fully A.I. brains, giving most of them a unique personality (though some don't possess any personality at all and operate as single-minded drones).

Androids

L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. also created several smaller robots, in the form of androids to perform menial jobs or to get more up close and personal with their enemies. They developed three different types of androids:

Battle-Types

Pretty self-explanatory, these androids are made for the sole purpose of fighting, or even to simply defend their creators.

Infiltration-Types1

As their name implies, these androids are meant to infiltrate special target areas. They're usually made to resemble other people, whether they be living or deceased, and are commonly made to resemble children.

Other Weapons

L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. created various other weapons for their conquest, often to assist their Super Robots in battles.

Vehicles

Battleships/Weapons

Bases/Fortresses

"Hired Help"

Though they work prominently with robots, androids and other artificially-creations, sometimes the organization looks into some hired help with their experiments.

Notes

More information on the group's history can be found here, on the group's page on the Phineas and Ferb wiki.

Ironically enough, while the organization's goals and role in the series overall are fairly simplistic compared to the other antagonist groups in KotM, they're actually pretty beneficial to the series overall, with several of their number joining the Knights, several characters joining the Knights due to their actions, and even (unintentionally) suppling the team with weapons such as God Sigma.

This version of the organization is essentially Earth Prime's equivalent to other big villainous groups like G.I. Joe's Cobra or Dragon Ball's Red Ribbon Army; a large organization made of hundreds of men and women with a baffling amount of free time and money that prefers to use it all to taking over the world, getting petty revenge for past grievances, kidnapping/blackmailing people to use however they wish, and just generally ruining good people's lives in some way or another for their own selfish benefit.

The names of each of L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N.'s scientists come from many scientists, such as movies, cartoons, plays on other famous scientists' names, actors/other cartoon characters that they share a lot of similarities with, and even Star Trek.

L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N.'s use of Super Robots is, of course, a nod to villains in the Super Robot genre that would send giant robots or monsters to defeat the heroes, but the use of mostly obscure/forgettable mecha shows is a small in-joke about the oversaturation of the super robot genre in the 1970's/early 1980's. In addition to that, to spice up the battles a little, almost all of the mechs have a bit of personality, which are usually based off of the mech's pilot from its original series.

To keep some consistency between most of the androids the group creates, they usually come from either a series revolving around a number of android characters (such as with the Dark Sisters) or are from the mech shows.

1 In their home series, most of the Infiltration Androids were actually disguises used by villains in their original series, with them usually being shapeshifters (sometimes even by villains that looked like old men which was.... just creepy). So to keep things a little simpler, they are simply robots that always looked like that.
