* {{Hypocrite}}: In his OncePerEpisode introduction, Hawkmoth says that he ''loves'' deceptions and misunderstandings. The perfect recipe for an akuma, sure, but it doesn't apply to himself.
* ItRunsInTheFamily: Marinette's parents fist-bump just like she does with Cat Noir; similarly, when they have to make a quick plan, Sabine is the one who comes up with it and Tom follows up, like Ladybug and Cat do when facing an akuma.

!!Tropes:

* AbnormalAmmo: Befana's gun can shoot two different types; one that [[TakenForGranite petrifies her victims,]] and another that [[BalefulPolymorph turns them into angel-like minions.]]
* ABirthdayNotABreak: It's Marinette's 14th birthday, and her grandmother gets akumatised and crashes her party.
* BottomlessMagazines: Averted; Befana needs to recharge her gun once she runs out of ammo. Played straight with the tin where she keeps the ammunition, which seems to produce an endless supply.
* CallBack: Adrien gifts Marinette his own handmade lucky charm, and shows he still has the charm Marinette gave him in [[Recap/MiraculousLadybugS01E15TheGamer "The Gamer"]].
* CoolBike: Gina's transforms into a flying one when she's akumatized.
* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: Tikki doesn't believe Marinette's bits of evidence that her friends are planning a surprise party for her, which are circumstantial bordering on romantic (well, except the cake her parents try to hide from her). Her suspicions turned out to be right on the money anyway.
* GoodLuckCharm: Adrien gives Marinette one, in exchange for the one she gave him [[CallBack back in]] [[Recap/MiraculousLadybugS01E15TheGamer "The Gamer"]]. Tikki also gifts Marinette a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magatama magatama]] apparently made from the hairs of previous Ladybugs.
* HeroicBystander: All of Marinette's friends jump to her defense when Befana attacks her.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Befana, as Ladybug notices, isn't immune to her own ammunition, so she and Cat trick her into petrifying herself.
* {{Hypocrite}}: In his OncePerEpisode introduction, Hawkmoth says that he ''loves'' deceptions and misunderstandings. The perfect recipe for an akuma, sure, but it doesn't apply to himself.
* ItRunsInTheFamily: Marinette's parents fist-bump just like she does with Cat Noir; similarly, when they have to make a quick plan, Sabine is the one who comes up with it and Tom follows up, like Ladybug and Cat do when facing an akuma.
* LightIsNotGood: Befana's [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angelic minions]] fall into this category.
* LyingToProtectYourFeelings: Marinette pretends to love Gina's gifts because she knows her grandmother means well, and she doesn't want to appear ungrateful or hurt her feelings. It goes as well as you would expect.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Marinette's refusal to tell Gina the truth about how she feels about her gifts in order to keep her happy ultimately gets Gina akumatised when she realizes the truth.
* RunningGag: Tom panicking and throwing the birthday cake into the trash bin every time someone enters the bakery.
* SurpriseParty: Marinette's friends and parents try to hold a surprise birthday party for her. Emphasis on "try", as they are so clumsy at keeping the preparations a secret she figures out what's going on pretty easily.
* UnwantedGiftPlot: Gina gifts Marinette a sweater several sizes too small, and feeds her candies Marinette hates. Marinette pretends to love them to spare her grandmother's feelings.
* YourFavorite: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]. Gina gives Marinette a tin of what she thinks is her granddaughter's favorite candy, but actually Marinette can't stand them.
