* BigBadDuumvirate: The Butterfly and Shade appear to be in cahoots, [[spoiler: but it’s then subverted with the reveal that they’re actually the same person.]]



* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:Shade is described as one by Erika, thanks to powers of the Snake Miraculous: "She speaks with honey and velvet, and because of this, it is said that she can convince the most peaceful of rulers to go to war, and make them think that the idea was their own in the first place." As such, it's not too surprising when she turns out to be the Butterfly as well.]]

Then when we learn Desirèe is Shade it takes on another dimension, as in hindsight her interactions with the main cast frequently pushed them apart from each other.]]

* UsefulNotes/VictimBlaming: The rhetoric used by Chat Noir and later the Anti-Akuma taskforce.
-->'''Adrien''': I did everything I could to pursue what I thought was true justice… because there had to be something innately dark in these akumatized victims, right? After all, there was never more than one akuma attack at a time, and it was unlikely that everyone else was just having a really good day, save for this one person who’d been slighted in some way. There had to be ''something'' about these specific victims, other than their anger or their despair, that drew Hawk Moth to them. At least, that’s what I told myself, over and over and over again… But that’s not true. Hawk Moth doesn’t ''cause'' the negative feelings in akuma victims. ''We'' do. …I do. Humanity is responsible for humanity. And to blame the akuma victims for becoming victims…it’s like blaming them for ''feeling'', just like Ladybug said. I knew what it was like to be blamed for my feelings, to be called irrational, overemotional. Having someone cut you down that way — it ''hurts''. Like what you feel doesn’t even matter because it’s inconveniencing someone else. My father made me feel that way all the time when I was upset with him for missing something we’d had planned in favor of work, for restricting me to the house, isolating me from the world… but how was I any better, when I hunted akumatized victims for being taken advantage of by a supervillain? Didn’t I just become my father after all, with such an attitude? I may have been chosen for this life, but I chose it, too. I might’ve been able to say no, to quit… but I needed this. Chat Noir was the only way I was able to feel free… and if I think about it, it’s not that different from when the akumatized victims accept Hawk Moth’s help. We all want to be free of something once in a while, don’t we? Don’t we all feel trapped every now and again? Even lost…or helpless? If I dare to judge akumatized victims for what I believed was weakness of spirit…then what about me? ...I was wrong. I was wrong… and I’m sorry.
