Larry was originally designed as a diplomat. However, he was put into Time Squad's service when the world's nations all joined together in the year one million, rendering his original purpose obsolete. He is the only team member capable of operating the time-traveling technology and most of the technology aboard the satellite.
Larry is a greyish-brown, medium-tall humanoid robot. His mouth does not open or close, but rather flashes with a blue glow as he speaks.
Larry is a sophisticated, well-mannered, non-violent diplomat. This is in stark contrast to his partner, Buck Tuddrussel. Although Larry is a robot, he is very sensitive and prone to his emotions. He is dramatic and sarcastic, but also shows happiness and adoration often. Although he appears to lack bravery and strength, he can stand up for himself and others when the need arises.
Larry is very openly effeminate, often engaging in feminine activities, clothing and the like. His constant bickering with Tuddrussel often resembles that of a husband and wife model, with Larry representing the latter. At rare times however, Larry's masculine side will break out in full force, such as when he discovered an interest in weaponry.
Towards the beginning of the series, Larry showed annoyance towards Otto. However, as the series progressed, Larry quickly grew to love Otto and now serves as a maternal figure for him. This includes homeschooling, cooking, and caring for Otto when he becomes sick.
Larry takes pride in being cultured. He is skilled in painting, sewing, figure skating, cello playing, dancing, cooking, and literature. However, his talents often sometime being underhanded by Buck's brutish and unsophisticated attitude especially in painting since he thinks Larry's art looks like vomit or occasionally in cooking in which Buck cannot stand Larry's Haute style of cooking. He can speak every known language and understands diplomatic skills like manners and class. He also (to his disdain) is in charge of cleaning the satellite and all of the messes his unit creates for him.
As Larry is a robot, he has quite a few useful tools. He uses the time travel-capable computer in his arm most often, but he also has detachable limbs, a built-in radio, a printer, a camera, a flashlight, and microscopic vision. Although he is robotic he is capable of many human traits, including the ability to smell, dream, and feel emotion. He is also able to drink liquids like oil.
He lacks of advanced technologies compared to XJ5 or Lance 9 Trillion, which XJ5 often teases him about it every time they meet.
The Larry 3000's severed head appeared in Cartoon Network Universe: FusionFall. It is used as a part needed to complete a time machine during the Future portion of the game. The rest of his body went missing after he was destroyed in a battle at Tech Square and thrown away at Goat's Junk Yard.
Larry appears alongside Tuddrussel in the poster that Cartoon Network distributed at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con to commemorate the network's 20th anniversary.

- Although Larry's original nationality is never made clear, he speaks with a British accent.
- It is revealed in the episode Child's Play that Larry likes Jackie Collins and Danielle Steel books.
- At the ending of Day of the Larrys, there is one Larry left, but it's left unknown if the character is the true Larry or only a Larry clone. Writer Carlos Ramos later said that the original Larry most likely came back.

- On episode 39 of Talkin Toons with Rob Paulsen, the podcast made by the voice of Buck Tuddrussel, he and his guest star Mark Hamill (voice of Larry) imply that the latter is gay. Although it was never directly stated, Larry could easily have been interpreted as gay in the cartoon, due to his feminity and presentation as the "gay best friend" to Cleopatra in "Shop like an Egyptian", although Larry has stated on multiple occasions he dislikes humans in general.
