Main characters[edit]

Marinette Dupain-Cheng / Ladybug[edit]

Marinette Dupain-Cheng a.k.a. Ladybug (voiced by Cristina Vee in the English dub[1][2][3] and by Anouck Hautbois in the French version) is a 14-year-old blue haired, blue-eyed, budding fashion designer at Collège Françoise-Dupont and her family operates a renowned bakery. Marinette is sweet, joyful, clumsy, and sometimes a bit awkward, but respected and generally popular amongst her peers and is extremely intelligent despite her occasional clumsy ways. Her fashion designs go way far beyond the limits, that even Gabriel Agreste and Audrey Bourgeois find her exceptional, and soon, the latter expects her to go to New York with her to be the greatest name in fashion, much to the annoyance of her daughter, Chloé. Marinette is deeply in love with Adrien Agreste, to whom she can barely speak to out of nervousness; her best friend Alya often tries to help Marinette to declare her love to him, only for it to end in failure. In Season 3, she also experiences romantic interest in Luka Couffaine, and they two date briefly before breaking up in "Truth" in season 4 and deciding to remain friends in "Crocoduel".

As shown in "Ladybug and Cat Noir (Origins - Part 1)", Marinette was chosen by Master Fu as the latest holder of the Ladybug Miraculous, and with the help of her kwami, Tikki, she can transform into the valiant and vivacious superheroine "Ladybug" (French: Coccinelle) to defend Paris from Hawk Moth's villains alongside Cat Noir. As Ladybug, she becomes more confident and serious, often brushing off Cat Noir's advances on her, unaware that he is secretly Adrien, but she does later come to value his friendship and depend upon him in their missions. Her weapons is a yo-yo, which is usually very durable, however there have been instances of it breaking - and her special power, "Lucky Charm", allows her to create an object to help solve a specific problem, defeating or helping to defeat an akumatized villain. Once the problem has been solved, she is able to use her second power, "Miraculous Ladybug", to restore things to the way they were and repair all damage. Her yo-yo is also capable of capturing and purifying akumas, storing items, and like all Miraculous tools, acts as a phone and communicator for her to use. When she becomes the Guardian, Ladybug has the ability to give other characters Miraculouses through her yo-yo.

In "Reflekdoll", Marinette temporarily obtains the Cat Miraculous and transforms into "Lady Noir". In "Kwamibuster", she temporarily wields the Mouse Miraculous as part of her plan to defeat Hawk Moth, transforming into "Multimouse". On several occasions, Marinette has used another Miraculous in conjunction with the Ladybug Miraculous, "unifying" their power into one to gain new abilities; thus far, she has unified with the Dragon Miraculous to become "Dragonbug", the Bee Miraculous to become "Ladybee", and the Horse Miraculous to become "Pegabug" (in "Miracle Queen", "Optigami", and "Sentibubbler" respectively).

As of "Miracle Queen", Marinette is Master Fu's successor, and the new Guardian of the Miraculous in Paris. As such, Ladybug starts to develop new abilities as the Guardian, now able to summon any Miraculous she needs through her yo-yo. In "Gang of Secrets", unable to handle the stress of her new responsibilities alone, she reveals her secret identity to Alya. Immediately after in "Mr. Pigeon 72", Alya helps Ladybug to recognize the Ladybug Miraculous' creation powers, allowing her to generate a new outfit and create "Magical Charms" to keep Shadow Moth's victims from being akumatized again.

Tikki[edit]

Tikki (voiced by Mela Lee in the English dub[4][2] and Marie Nonnenmacher in the French version) is the Kwami of creation who enables Marinette to transform into Ladybug. Tikki is a small floating rat-like magical creature with a large head, big eyes, and a red body with large black spots on her head, resembling a ladybug. Tikki is a positive and serious Kwami, who believes strongly in Marinette and she gives her advice to be the best that she can be, regardless of transformation.[5] She is more than 13 billion years old, and has watched over every Ladybug since the beginning.[a] During Marinette's transformation, Tikki inhabits the Ladybug Miraculous, a pair of earrings worn by Marinette. Astruc has written on Twitter that Tikki means "happiness".[6]

Adrien Agreste / Cat Noir[edit]

Adrien Agreste a.k.a. Cat Noir ("Black Cat") (French: Chat Noir) (voiced by Bryce Papenbrook in the English dub[7][2][3] and Benjamin Bollen in the French version) is Marinette's classmate whom she has a huge crush on, though he is oblivious to her crush and only sees Marinette as a friend. Adrien comes from a wealthy family, and is a popular fashion model for the clothing company of his father Gabriel though he laments the poor relationship he has with him; his mother, meanwhile, has inexplicably disappeared.[b] Adrien is kind, loyal, sensitive and well-liked, and hangs out often with his best friend Nino.

As shown in "Ladybug and Cat Noir (Origins - Part 1)", Adrien was chosen by Master Fu as the latest holder of the Cat Miraculous (also called the Black Cat Miraculous), and with the help of his kwami, Plagg, can transform into the superhero Cat Noir (French: Chat Noir, "black cat") to fight with Ladybug in saving Paris from Hawk Moth's villains. As Cat Noir, he is more rebellious and care-free, while also being deeply in love with Ladybug and often trying to win her affections, despite not knowing her true identity. His weapon is a multi-functional staff and his special power, "Cataclysm", allows him to destroy anything he touches.[5][c][d]

In "Reflekdoll", Adrien temporarily uses the Ladybug Miraculous and becomes "Mister Bug". In "Desperada", Ladybug recruits Adrien with the Snake Miraculous to become "Aspik", unaware of him being a Miraculous holder himself; however, he returns it to her due to his constant failures in stopping Desperada. Like Ladybug, he can unify Miraculouses together, unifying with the Snake Miraculous to become "Snake Noir" in "Miracle Queen". In the same episode, he starts a relationship with Kagami, but is unsure of his feelings as he is still in love with Ladybug, eventually leading to them breaking up in "Lies".

In "Cat Blanc", an alternate timeline is shown in which Adrien deduces Marinette's secret identity and begins a relationship with her, however, this leads to Hawk Moth finding out his identity and akumatizing him into the titular villain; an evil white version of Cat Noir who has the power of infinite destruction. Cat Blanc's power ends up destroying Paris and the entire world, but, with help from Bunnyx, Ladybug is able to de-akumatize him and prevent that timeline from happening. In "Ephemeral", another alternate timeline is shown in which, as a result of Cat Noir and Ladybug sharing their secret identities, Gabriel is able to deduce his son's identity, take his Miraculous and akumatize him into Ephemeral; a villain with the power to speed up time. Together, Ephemeral and Shadow Noir are able to defeat Ladybug and take her Miraculous, although Luka manages to avert this timeline by having Sass travel back in time.

Plagg[edit]

Plagg (voiced by Max Mittelman in the English dub[8][2] and Thierry Kazazian in the French version) is the Kwami of destruction who enables Adrien to transform into Cat Noir. Plagg looks much like Tikki, but with a black body, green eyes, and pointed ears, resembling a black cat. Unlike Tikki, however, Plagg is sarcastic and lazy, in a parallel to Cat Noir's relationship with Ladybug. Although he cares for Adrien, he is less invested in his problems and often gives wrong or destructive advice. His favorite food is camembert, which he is shown to have an obsession for.[5] During his Adrien's transformation as Cat Noir, he inhabits the Black Cat Miraculous, a ring worn by Adrien on his right hand. He is notably the first kwami to be shown shown using his abilities, using his Cataclysm to help Ladybug in "Style Queen" and Adrien in "Catalyst"; however, without a holder to channel his power, it can cause untold destruction. Likewise, Master Fu claims in "Style Queen" that Plagg's irresponsibility with his powers caused the sinking of Atlantis, the tilting of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the extinction of the dinosaurs.

Gabriel Agreste / Hawk Moth / Shadow Moth[edit]

Gabriel Agreste (French: Le Papillon, lit. "The Butterfly" in season 1 "Scarlet Butterfly" in season 2, "Shadow Butterfly" in season 4, voiced by Keith Silverstein in the English dub[9][2][10] and Antoine Tomé in the French version[11]) is a famous fashion designer, and Adrien's strict, overprotective father. He serves as the main antagonist of the series.

Having acquired both the Butterfly and Peacock Miraculouses prior to the series, he uses the former Miraculous and its kwami, Nooroo, to transform into the supervillain Hawk Moth. His weapon is a cane that acts as a sword stick, and his special power, "Akumatization", allows him to create akumas; corrupted butterflies that are drawn to intense negative emotions. Once he has acquired a target, Hawk Moth is able to send the akuma to possess and transform his victim into a supervillain with special powers, which he uses in an effort to acquire Ladybug and Cat Noir's Miraculouses. Gabriel's prime motivation for stealing the superheroes' Miraculous is to use their combined power to restore his comatose wife, Emilie; although it is later revealed in "Dearest Family" that he now intends to destroy the world and create a new one where he and Emilie can live together. As Hawk Moth, his transformation call is "Nooroo, Dark Wings Rise!".

In "The Collector", in an effort to conceal his secret identity, Gabriel akumatizes himself into the titular villain, with the power to trap anything that touches the pages of his blank sketchbook. On more than one occasion, he has transformed himself into "Scarlet Moth" with the help of Catalyst, enhancing his abilities so that he can create as many akumas as he wants. In "Dearest Family", Gabriel briefly akumatizes himself into The Collector again.

In season four, Gabriel unifies the Butterfly and the newly repaired Peacock Miraculous together to become "Shadow Moth". This allows him to use both the power of Akumatization and Amokization. Amokization power allows him to bring emotions to life and create sentimonsters to help in on his quest to gain Ladybug and Cat Noir's Miraculous. In "Dearest Family", he develops the ability to create "Megakumas"; more powerful akumas capable of breaking shields and destroying Ladybug's Magical Charms. In "Ephemeral", an alternate timeline is shown in which he successfully acquires the Cat Miraculous, unifying with it to become "Shadow Noir", subsequently unifying with the Ladybug Miraculous to bring about his wish but Sass used Second Chance to undo and erase his actions.

Major recurring characters[edit]

Alya Césaire / Rena Rouge[edit]

Alya Césaire a.k.a. Rena Rouge ("Red Fox") and Rena Furtive ("Secret Fox") (voiced by Carrie Keranen in the English dub[12][13] and Fanny Bloc in the French version) is Marinette's best friend. She constantly helps Marinette with her problems, most of which pertain to Marinette attempting, and failing, to speak to Adrien; she is often seen encouraging and helping her to talk to him. She aspires to be a journalist and is in charge of the school blog. She is a big fan of superheroes and like her peers, is a massive fan of Ladybug; she even operates a fansite known as the Ladyblog, but like everyone else, is unaware of Marinette's superhero identity for the series' first three seasons.[14]

In "Lady Wifi", after being suspended from school while trying to investigate Ladybug's secret identity, she is akumatized by Hawk Moth and becomes the smartphone-wielding supervillain Lady Wifi, who can fire different icons with different effects, such as pause and lock, and can travel through wifi-serviced phones. In "Oblivio", she and Nino are akumatized to become a joint supervillain as Oblivio, who can erase the victim's memories and has a purple silhouette body. She becomes Lady Wifi again in "Félix" when she, Rose and Juleka are simultaneously akumatized because of Félix's actions, and with Princess Fragrance and Reflekta, forms the "Punishers Trio"; unlike in her previous incarnation, Lady Wifi is shown to have no weakness to losing her Wi-Fi signal, as she uses a tablet with satellite connection. In "Gang of Secrets", she becomes Lady Wifi once more, teaming up with Princess Fragrance, Reflekta, Horrificator and Timebreaker to form the titular group, who pursue Marinette in order to force her to reveal the secrets she is keeping from them. In the same episode, Lady Wifi rejects Shadow Moth's influence completely, becoming the first villain in the series to do so.

In "Sapotis," she temporarily receives the Fox Miraculous from Ladybug and meets its kwami of illusion Trixx, and transforms into the fox-themed superhero Rena Rouge. Her weapon is a flute that doubles as a staff and her special power, "Mirage", allows her to create illusions. Her transformation call is "Trixx, Let's Pounce!" (French: Trixx, transforme-moi!, "Trixx, transform me!").[15] Rena Rouge is frequently called upon throughout the series; appearing in "Syren", "Catalyst" "Mayura", "Miraculer" and "Miracle Queen". In the former episode, she, along with all of the other temporary Miraculous holders, has her identity revealed to Hawk Moth.

In "Gang of Secrets", Marinette tells Alya that she is Ladybug, making her the second person after Master Fu to know her secret identity. Alya then continues to help Marinette as herself and Rena Rouge throughout the season, and, in "Optigami", Marinette allows Alya to hold onto the Fox Miraculous permanently and act in her place if need be. In the following episode, "Sentibubbler", after realizing that Alya holds a special position with Ladybug, Shadow Moth tries to blackmail her into betraying Ladybug by threatening her friends and family, but Alya instead tricks him into thinking that she will never hold the Fox Miraculous again with her illusions. Because of this, Alya adopts a new identity as "Rena Furtive", covertly watching over Ladybug and Cat Noir to keep them safe from Shadow Moth's traps, complete with a new uniform to suit her role. In "Hack-San", Marinette temporarily entrusts Alya with the Ladybug Miraculous, allowing her to transform into "Scarabella".

Nino Lahiffe / Carapace[edit]

Nino Lahiffe[16] a.k.a. Carapace (voiced by Ben Diskin in seasons 1–3 of the English dub,[17][18] Zeno Robinson in Miraculous World: New York: United HeroeZ-present of the English dub,[19] and Alexandre Nguyen in the French version[20]) is Adrien's best friend who dresses in skate punk fashion, typically seen with headphones around his neck and a cap on his head.

In "The Bubbler", after growing upset with the unfairness of adults, he is akumatized by Hawk Moth into The Bubbler, who can create and manipulate bubbles. In "Oblivio," he and Alya were akumatized again into one supervillain, as Oblivio, a purple silhouette villain who can erase their victim's memories. In "Rocketear", believing that Alya has fallen in love with Cat Noir, Nino is akumatized into the titular villain with the power to emit exploding tears. When he realizes that his belief was simply a misunderstanding, Rocketear rejects Shadow Moth's influence, becoming the second villain after Lady Wifi to do so.

In "Anansi", he temporarily receives the Turtle Miraculous from Ladybug and meets its kwami of protection Wayzz, and transforms into the turtle-themed superhero Carapace. His weapon is a shield and his special power, "Shell-ter", allows him to create a force field. His transformation call is "Wayzz, Shell On!" (French: Wayzz, transforme-moi!, "Wayzz, transform me!"). Carapace is frequently called upon throughout the series; appearing in "Catalyst", "Mayura", "Miraculer", "Party Crasher", "Mega Leech", "Rocketear", and "Ephemeral". "Optigami" implies that he has also been called upon for missions off-screen as well. When Carapace is akumatized, he turns into Shell Shock. In "Miracle Queen", Nino has his identity revealed to Hawk Moth, although like Kagami, he doesn't have the opportunity to transform, since the Turtle Miraculous was being used by Master Fu as the Jade Turtle. In "Rocketear", Nino reveals his and Alya's secret identities to Adrien.

When asked about Alya and Nino's ethnicity, Astruc wrote on Twitter that one of them was from Réunion, and later wrote that Alya was from Martinique.[21]

She has held the Bee Miraculous temporarily to transform into Queen Bee, but Ladybug told her should could not give her the Miraculous ever again due to everyone knowing her secret identity, including Hawk Moth. As of Season 4, Ladybug gives the Miraculous to her half sister Zoe. Although Chloe tends to act like a selfish, overzealous, spoiled brat, she does show a little remorse if she wants to. She claims to like Adrien Agreste, her childhood best friend.

He never speaks at all, only communicating through grunts and expressions; this, along with his massive exterior, has earned him the nickname of "The Gorilla" from Adrien and other characters.

In "Gorizilla", while trying to find a runaway Adrien, the bodyguard is akumatized into the Gorizilla, giant gorilla-themed supervillain who has enormous strength and a keen sense of smell. Gorizilla appears again in "Catalyst", "Mayura", and "Ephemeral".

In season 4, Nathalie is revealed to be bedridden after the events of "Miracle Queen", due to her constant use of the Peacock Miraculous. In "Optigami", it is revealed that sometime prior to the events of the episode, she created a Sentimonster named Optigami, an origami butterfly-shaped creature with the ability to camouflage and spy on the everyday lives of the Miraculous users.

By the end of "Ladybug", she is rewarded for her efforts by becoming a new model for the Agreste brand alongside Adrien.

Kwamis[edit]

Kwamis are fairy-like divine beings, personifications of abstract concepts with animal-like features that were initially unable to interact with tangible beings until a Chinese mage created the Miraculous, allowing them to interact with the physical plane. Kwamis use the Miraculouses to transform their holders into animal-themed super beings with a fraction of their full power. While having a desire to do good, some kwamis like Nooroo and Duusu end up being used by villainous holders and are forced to aid them. Such precautions were set so that even if a kwami can sense each other's presence, they cannot reveal the identity of other Miraculous holders nor read from the Miraculous spellbook.

In "Mayura", Duusu is used by Nathalie to enable her to transform into Mayura. In "Feast", Master Fu reveals he previously misused the Peacock Miraculous, creating a sentimonster that destroyed the Order of the Guardians and resulted in both the Butterfly and Peacock Miraculouses and Miraculous Spellbook being lost.

Her condition is the driving force for Gabriel's actions and pursuit of the Ladybug and Cat Miraculous, as he wants to use the unlimited power granted by using both Miraculous to revive her. She is also a former actress, having appeared in the film Solitude in the leading role.

As implied numerous time in the series, and stated in the webisode "Gabriel", Emilie was a former holder of the Peacock Miraculous, and using the damaged Miraculous was the direct cause of her condition.

She is very strict and follows a tight code of ethics, growing frustrated with anyone who breaks her rules or doesn't appear to take superheroics seriously, like Ladybug and Cat Noir, and even her daughter, Jessica Keynes/Sparrow. Even so, she is able to respect those that prove themselves, allowing Sparrow to have more independence when she becomes Eagle. She is engaged in a relationship with Olympia Hill/Majestia.[87]

As revealed towards the end of the special, Barbara is actually the latest incarnation of Knightowl, as the mantle has been passed down for generations (it is implied that she was the Sparrow for the previous Knightowl), and as such disguises her gender while in-costume. Her costume and demeanor is presumably based upon Batman, while her civilian design is modelled off of Marinette Dupain-Cheng/Ladybug's English voice actor Cristina Vee.[88]

Prior to her official debut, a different version of Sparrow was originally conceived as a member of the Quantic Kids, a team of teenage superheroes that Ladybug and Cat Noir were a part of in the early production of the series, although the entire concept was ultimately disregarded.[89] Like how Knightowl is presumably based upon Batman, Sparrow is presumably based upon Batman's sidekick, Robin; specifically, the Dick Grayson incarnation and Eagle is based on Robin’s independent superhero persona: Nightwing

Once de-akumatized, he is arrested yet again.

Mike Rochip's Akumatized identity as Techlonizer seems to be based on Dr. Otto Octavius, also known as Dr. Octopus (Doc Ock for short), a supervillain from Marvel, as both of them possess and control four mechanical arms that serve as both weapons and transportation.

The unnamed Native American monk (voiced by Grant George in the English dub) is a member of the Order of the Guardians that appeared in Miraculous New York as the guardian of the Native American Miraculous Box. He briefly appears at the end of the special to confront Eagle and Uncanny Valley and reclaim the Eagle Miraculous, but is instead convinced to stay in New York and create a new generation of heroes.

Fei Wu / Lady Dragon[edit]

Fei Wu (voiced by Xanthe Huynh in the English dub) is a young martial artist who appears in Miraculous Shanghai. She is the adoptive daughter of Wu Shifu, learning kung fu and values under him in order to become the Guardian of the Sacred Cave. After Shifu is killed and the bracelet that he entrusted Fei with stolen, Fei becomes a thief to pay Cash for information on her father's killer. After meeting Marinette, she renounces this lifestyle.

After claiming the Prodigious jewel Shifu was protecting, she transforms into Ladydragon, gaining the ability to see creatures called Renlings, and transform into different animals if she possesses the values they represent. Her transformations include Lady Bear (calmness), Lady Mantis (patience), Lady Snake (courage), Lady Monkey (compassion), Lady Eagle (confidence), Lady Horse (honor), Lady Tiger (discipline), and finally her dragon form (justice). Through these values, Fei Wu was able to help Ladybug and Cat Noir calm Mei Shi and bring Cash to justice. Afterwards, Fei Wu moves in with Wang Chen.

Fei is set to return in her own TV series.[92]

Renlings[edit]

The Renlings are sprite-like beings that appear in Miraculous Shanghai. They are "cousins" to the Kwamis[93] and represent human values. They grant whoever wields the Prodigious the ability to transform into the animals they resemble as long as they possess the values they represent.

They consist of the dragon-like Long Long (voiced by Christopher Corey Smith in the English dub), the bear-like Xiong Xiong (voiced by Sabrina Weisz in the English dub), the mantis-like Tang Tang (voiced by Mela Lee in the English dub), the snake-like She She (voiced by Carrie Keranen in the English dub), the eagle-like Ying Ying, the monkey-like Hou Hou (voiced by Brook Chalmers in the English dub), the horse-like Ma Ma, and the tiger-like Hu Hu.

Mei Shi[edit]

Mei Shi (voiced by Mark Chen) is the lion-like protector of the Prodigious who appears in Miraculous Shanghai. Initially, he appears as a humanoid lion-like statue, judging whoever claims the Prodigious of their worthiness. Later, he assumes the forms a small, kwami-like creature and begins accompanying Ladydragon.

When deeming Fei unworthy of wielding the Prodigious due to her quest for vengeance for her adoptive father's death, Mei Shi is akumatized by Hawk Moth into YanLuoShi, a rampaging giant version of himself with the ability to disintegrate anyone with a powerful laser beam. He quickly betrays Hawk Moth by disintegrating him and goes on a rampage in Shanghai. Ladybug and Ladydragon were able to come up with a tactic to get inside YanLuoShi and remove the akuma in order to restore Mei Shi back to normal. Afterwards, the damages caused by YanLuoShi were undone.

Cash[edit]

Cash (voiced by Caleb Yen in the English dub) is a greedy crime boss who owns a pawn shop in Shanghai. He briefly appears in Miraculous New York and officially debuts in Miraculous Shanghai. Prior to the events of the special, he was responsible for the death of Wu Shifu, the destruction of his school, and stealing the bracelet Fei had been entrusted to protect, which he subsequently sold to Nathalie on behalf of Gabriel Agreste. He later has Shifu's daughter Fei steal for him in return for information about her father's killer. However, Fei eventually leaves him when he tries to make Marinette buy back her own things at his shop.

Overcome with greed in trying to get Marinette to turn over the money she owes him, Cash is akumatized by Hawk Moth into King Cash, a towering golden terracotta warrior-themed supervillain who wields a fan able to both slice through anything and turn people into gold. Once defeated and de-akumatized, Fei calls him out for killing Shifu and manipulating her, but chooses to abandon her quest for vengeance and takes him to the police as Ladydragon.
