Dory is the deuteragonist in the Disney/Pixar 2003 film Finding Nemo. She suffers from short-term memory-loss and is a bit dimsy. She is voiced by Ellen DeGeneres and currently by Jennifer Hale.

Finding Nemo

Dory helps Marlin on his journey to rescue Nemo while heading to Sydney. The friendly female can read and is very happy to have a companion. Marlin takes advantage of her short attention-span, but later regrets it when it physically hurts her. She never remembers Nemo's name, but does seem to care about the little fish. And another thing, when a single fish is feeling down, she comforts everybody she sees, like in the movie. The words ("There, there. It's all right. It'll be okay.") are used by Dory twice in the movie. That's because when she first met Marlin, she thought his head was hurting, or in pain, and in the whale when Marlin was worried about Nemo.

Dory cameos in the comic book on the last page of issue 7, reacting in fear to the return of Paddywhack.
