* MirrorUniverse: Bridgette's universe has shades of this, in particular that [[AlphaBitch Chloe]]'s MirrorSelf Allegra is Bridgette's best friend, much to Marinette's amusement. There's also the suggestion that Fred "Mime" Haprele's counterpart is a villain of his own accord (as is Xavier "M. Pigeon" Ramier's, but then Ramier was kind of a misanthropic jerk to begin with).

** Bridgette dismissing Chat Noir as "like a sidekick" and not as important as Ladybug, something Marinette would ''never'' say in or out of costume, which shocks and angers Alya and hurts Adrien. She also manages to talk to Adrien more coherently than Marinette ever has. In turn, Marinette arouses suspicions from Allegra and Felix by defending Cat Noir and arguing they should have more faith in his partnership with Coccinelle, as well as by not being overly affectionate with Felix.

* AbusiveParents: Gervais Agreste manages to be significantly worse than Gabriel, to the point of openly telling Félix that he's such a disappointment as a son - or rather, as an "investment" - that he can understand why his mother walked out on him, and then mocking Félix for not already realising that she isn't actually dead.

** After Marinette reads Bridgette's diary and learns about how she refused to lift Cat Noir's curse, she makes it clear that she doesn't approve of her decision.

* AdaptationalVillainy: A complicated example with [[spoiler:Mime and M. Pigeon. Their appearance in the alternate universe is based on the versions that appeared in the ''Miraculous Ladybug'' pilot video, which are commonly assumed to have been intended as recurring villains rather than one-shot akuma victims as in the series. When Cat Noir tells Ladybug about them, Ladybug mentions her history with them, namechecking M. Ramier (M. Pigeon) and M. Haprele (Mime). Both Marinette and Félix are later seen contemplating the possibility that their classmate Claude Haprele is Mime's son. But if so, it's not so much the trope applying to the canon Fred Haprele as it is PV!Mime being as villainous as he may have been to begin with.]]

"I think Bridgette definitely still has room to grow, but I think she should grow into herself, not someone else."]]
* BlatantLies: [[spoiler:When Alya visits Master Fu's massage parlour to find out what Adrien and "Marinette" were doing there, she makes up a story about her mother having back pain and her friends recommending him to her, which doesn't fool him for a second. In turn, when Wayzz interrupts their conversation, Master Fu tries to pass the kwami off as a rare sea turtle from China, and dismisses her claim that he was talking to her, blaming it on the stale air inside. Alya is still skeptical, though she does threaten to call the authorities if the turtle is on an endangered species list.]]

* MirrorUniverse: Bridgette's universe has shades of this, in particular that [[AlphaBitch Chloe]]'s MirrorSelf Allegra is Bridgette's best friend, much to Marinette's amusement.


* AdaptationalVillainy: A complicated example with [[spoiler:Mime and M. Pigeon. Both appear in the pilot video and are commonly assumed to have been intended as recurring villains rather than one-shot akuma victims as in the series. The two are portrayed as such when Cat Noir tells Ladybug about them, and Ladybug mentions her history with them, namechecking M. Ramier (M. Pigeon) and M. Haprele (Mime). Both Marinette and Félix are later seen contemplating the possibility that their classmate Claude Haprele is Mime's son. If so, then the trope certainly applies to the canon Fred Haprele (though not so much for Xavier Ramier, who arguably came across as a misanthropic jerk before he got akumatised).]]



* FakeDefector: [[spoiler:In Chapter 13, Cat Noir makes contact with Papillon through an akuma and cuts a deal with him: Papillon recreates Trou de Ver, and Cat Noir will hand over both their Miraculous before throwing Coccinelle through a portal. Allegra is there to witness the conversation and is completely taken in, but Marinette seems to figure out what's going on.]]

* GladIThoughtOfIt: [[spoiler:After Ladybug tells Cat Noir that she recognises Mime and M. Pigeon from when they were akumatised on her world, Cat reacts with glee at the possibility of capturing them and one-upping Mercury. "I can't believe I figured it out before him. I'll never let him live it down." Ladybug, amused, points out that she technically figured it out.]]

* JumpedAtTheCall: [[spoiler:Subverted by Cat Noir (in contrast to Chat), who outright tells Coccinelle that he never wanted this and would give it up in a heartbeat, even if Papillon is still at large. Despite this, Rikki states that she believes he does enjoy being a hero.]]
