    Stormy Weather
"In Stormy Weather's world, it's winter wonderland FOREVER!"
Voiced by: Geneviève Doang (FR), Mela Lee (EN), Lourdes Arruti (MEX), Blanka Nagy (HUN)

A villainess with weather manipulation powers. Her civilian self is Aurore Beauréal. Her Akuma is contained in her parasol.

  • Blow You Away: Her main form of attack is to create gusts of winds of hurricane strength, and even whole tornadoes.
  • Came Back Strong: In "Stormy Weather 2", Stormy comes back with a vengeance and a massive power boost. Her powers now include "all the forces of nature". As a result, she's seen creating a volcano that's able to generate enough force to push the Earth out of its orbit. Ladybug notes during their battle that she's far stronger than she was the first time around.note 
  • Driven by Envy: She's incredibly jealous of Mireille for beating her, to the point that she can't stand to see her face and destroys everything with Mireille's picture on it, though the Akuma probably contributes.
  • Dub Name Change: Climatika in the original French version.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Her look is inspired by this fashion trend, with a purple, gray, and black color scheme, a Parasol of Pain, and a puffy-sleeved knee-high dress with tights.
  • Flight: Her control over air currents grants her the power of flying, at least as long she holds her parasol.
  • An Ice Person: Among her weather-themed powers is creating large walls of ice and making huge hails rain.
  • Joke Character: What Chloé sees her as. This leads her to try and freeze everyone on Earth to death.
  • Killed Offscreen: Well, more like defeated offscreen; in "Stormy Weather 2", her defeat takes place entirely offscreen, with it being partly narrated on the news.
  • Multicolored Hair: Dark purple hair with periwinkle streaks.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: In her second appearance, she wants to knock the Earth out of orbit in order to kill everyone and prove her strength.
  • Parasol of Pain: She uses her parasol to summon all sorts of meteorological phenomena.
  • Recurring Boss: She is the main antagonist of two separate episodes and appears as one of the many villains in the Heroes' Day.
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: Figures that "Aurore Beauréal" would want to be a weather forecaster, never mind become a weather-themed villain.
  • Superpower Lottery: Given the sheer variety of weather at her disposal, she didn't do too shabbily for herself in this.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Her powers have grown stronger in scale during her second appearance.
  • Weather Manipulation: Her powerset.

"No more adults means total freedom! This is SOOO sweet!"

A villain with the power to create magical bubbles. His civilian self is Adrien's friend Nino Lahiffe. His Akuma is contained in his bubble wand.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has blue skin.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: It might be hard to take "The Bubbler" seriously, that is, until he starts trapping people inside bubbles and literally punting them into orbit.
  • Happiness Is Mandatory: So says the Bubbler. He flips when people don't seem to have a good time at the party he throws, forcing them to continue pretending to be happy.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Bubbles, as it turns out, make for excellent mass kidnapping tools.
  • Improbable Weapon User: His weapon is a giant bubble blower.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He wants his best friend to have a nice birthday party for once... so he traps all the adults in Paris inside his magic bubbles, hangs said bubbles in the sky, and then kidnaps a bunch of teenagers and organizes a hostage birthday party.

"I love you, Ladybug! I'm way better than this mangy alley cat!"
Voiced by: Franck Tordjman and Martial Le Minoux (FR, first and second voice, respectively), Brian Beacock (EN), Alan Fernando Velázquez (MEX), Michael Ernst (GER), Tibor Fehér (HUN)

A villain with the power to impersonate other people... in his case, Cat Noir. His civilian self is Théo Barbot. His Akuma is contained in a newspaper article about Ladybug that Théo used as inspiration for his sculpture.

  • Bluff the Impostor: Since Cat Noir claimed he and Ladybug were an item to Théo, this is used to trick him into revealing himself when Ladybug has trouble telling them apart at first.
  • Clone by Conversion: Théo becomes one for Cat Noir as an Akumatized villain.
  • Criminal Doppelgänger: Justified example, since Hawk Moth transformed him that way on purpose.
  • Dub Name Change: L'Imposteur (The Impersonator) in the original French version.
  • Entitled to Have You: Has shades of this towards Ladybug even before he gets Akumatized.
  • Evil Knockoff: The first of two in the first season, the second being Antibug. He even has a (possibly weaker) version of Cat Noir's Cataclysm.
  • Fearful Symmetry: He eventually ends up in a fight with Cat Noir, whose appearance he copied, resulting in this trope.
  • Frame-Up: He steals the Mona Lisa disguised as Cat Noir, which sends the entire Paris Police force after the real Cat.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: He's terribly jealous of Cat Noir because he gets to be by Ladybug's side... and also because Cat pulled Théo's leg and convinced him that he was dating Ladybug.
  • If I Can't Have You...: Says this verbatim when he understands that Ladybug doesn't want to have anything to do with him.
  • Imposter Forgot One Detail: He can perfectly mimic Cat Noir's appearance and powers, but his trap for Cat Noir causes Cat Noir's ring to start losing power and thus their timers are no longer in sync. This gives him away during the second mix-up when Ladybug checks the real Cat Noir's ring, which has less pads than Copycat's.
  • Kill and Replace: He wants to get rid of Cat Noir and take his place as Ladybug's boyfriend.
  • Oral Fixation: Théo keeps a lollipop stick in his mouth. Leaving it behind when he steals the Mona Lisa clues Cat Noir onto his identity.
  • Punny Name: Copycat, Cat Noir, get it?
  • Technicolor Eyes: Obviously, since he's a perfect physical copy of Cat Noir, who also has these.
  • Voices Are Not Mental: Theo even has Cat Noir's voice as Copycat.

"Oh, wow, six minutes in one go! Must have been those nine lives. Gotta go! The past is waiting."
Voiced by: Adeline Chetail (FR), Kira Buckland (EN), María Alcázar (MEX), Mayte Mira (SP, EP), Zselyke Szabó (HUN)), Isabella Simi (ES)

A villainess who can travel back in time by absorbing the life energies of people around her. Her civilian self is Alix Kubdel, one of Marinette's classmates. Her Akuma is contained in one of her rollerskates.

  • Cool, but Inefficient: In a similar way as Reflekta, below: Timebreaker's primary means of attacking is a One-Hit Kill, but destroys the Miraculous along with everything else (and even worse, unlike the Reflekta example she doesn't seem to have other powers like Super Strength). She would be perfect if Hawk Moth's intention was to kill Ladybug and Cat Noir, but since what he actually wants is the Miraculous she's less than useful.
  • Dub Name Change: Chronogirl in the original French version.
  • Fantasy Helmet Enforcement: Even villains need safety gear, kids!
  • Fragile Speedster: She's incredibly fast, but Ladybug easily throws her around. Her time-stopping abilities make up for any lack of physical strength.
  • Hero Killer: The Timebreaker from the future first accumulated enough power to Time Travel after stealing the energy from Cat Noir (who had gotten in her way to save Ladybug). Going back in time allowed Ladybug to prevent this from happening though.
  • Rollerblade Good: They also allow her to time-travel, provided she's charged them with enough stolen time.
  • Sensual Spandex: That rollerskating outfit of hers is really, really tight over her body.
  • Shout-Out: Her watch has the same activation sound effect as the Omnitrix.
  • Slasher Smile: She loves giving disturbing grins.
  • Temporal Duplication: Thanks to some temporal shenanigans, there ends up being two of her.
  • Time Master: She can steal other people's time by touching them, and then go back in time the amount of minutes she's stolen.
  • Touch of Death: One touch allows her to steal the time from anyone, causing them to fade from existence.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: She tricks the sweet Rose by pretending to be injured, and then steals her energy to power herself up.

    Lady WiFi
"Alya's been disconnected. I'm Lady Wifi."
Voiced by: Fanny Bloc (FR), Carrie Keranen (EN), Alicia Barragán (MEX), Sara Iglesias (SP), 김은아 (Kim Eun-ah) (KOR), Bárbara Lourenço (EP), Luisa Palomanes (BP), Josefina Hylén (SW), Csenge Szilágyi (HUN), Letizia Ciampa (ITA), Marta Dylewska (P), Елена Шульман/Yelena Shulman (RUS)

A villainess who can use her smartphone to teleport and pause and stop people. Her main goal is exposing who Ladybug is. Her civilian self is Alya Césaire, Marinette's best friend. Her Akuma is contained in her phone.

  • Bond Villain Stupidity:
    • It doesn't occur to her to just remove Ladybug's earrings when she has her cornered.
    • Lady WiFi frees Ladybug, and forces her to use her Lucky Charm to save Cat. She then makes the mistake of leaving the two alone, with only a livestream camera keeping an eye on them.
  • Clark Kenting: Despite her disguise being just a Domino Mask, Marinette only gets the hint when she sees the distinctive ladybug charm on her phone. Never mind the familiar hair dye and forehead mole.
  • Do Not Adjust Your Set: Her "video" runes hijack all nearby screens, and can create a large projection screen in the sky.
  • Eye Colour Change: Alya's hazel eyes are changed to red-violet as Lady WiFi.
  • Failed a Spot Check: She believes Chloé (currently dressed as Ladybug) to be Ladybug and unmasks her to the public, completely missing that her hair and eye color are wrong. It isn't until the real Ladybug shows up that she realizes her mistake. Then again, she also never realizes the superhero she follows obsessively has the exact same hairstyle, color and eyes as her best friend either.
  • Flight: While under the Puppeteer's control, she demonstrates the ability to fly around using a "fast-forward" rune.
  • Flipping the Bird: She sends a left-handed salute, which is an insulting gesture.
  • Instant Runes: Most of her powers manifest as floating pink icons projected from her smartphone.
  • Logical Weakness: She gets her powers from WiFi signal, so when the reception is low, she loses most of her superhuman skills. She still proves strong enough to overpower Cat Noir in a straight fight. As of "Félix" however, she doesn't have this problem anymore, due to a satellite connection.
  • Multicolored Hair: Just like her civilian counterpart.
  • Recurring Boss: Aside from her debut episode, Lady WiFi reappears in "The Puppeteer" as one of the titular villain's lackeys, as one of the Trio of Punishers in "Félix", alongside Princess Fragrance and Reflekta, and as part of the Gang of Secrets alongside Princess Fragrance, Reflekta, Horrificator, and Timebreaker.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: She has red-violet eyes, and is an Akuma villain working for Hawk Moth.
  • Telephone Teleport: She can travel through WiFi, teleporting herself from one phone to other.
  • Time Stands Still: Her "stop" and "pause" runes freeze whatever they hit.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In "Félix", her WiFi connection is now hooked up to a satellite, meaning reception is no longer an issue for her.

    Mr. Pigeon
Rrooo rolooo!
Voiced by: Franck Tordjman (FR), Todd Haberkorn (EN), Ernesto Lezama (MEX), György Gubányi (HUN)

A villain who can make pigeons do his bidding. His civilian self is Xavier Ramier, a man enraged that the Parisian police won't let him feed the pigeons in the park. His Akuma is contained in his whistle.

  • The Beastmaster: He can control pigeons. Loads and loads of pigeons. Enough pigeons to lift the Eiffel Tower into the sky.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Quite possibly the most ridiculous villain in the series so far, but no less dangerous than the others.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Mr. Ramier himself sometimes pretends to be a pigeon. After getting Akumatized, that trait becomes exaggerated.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He's genuinely fond of his pigeons.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: A villain whose power allows him to control pigeons doesn't sound very scary, but he is able to do some genuinely impressive things with just that.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: While Ladybug and Cat Noir's first battle against him was an impressive high stakes fight like most other villains, by the time he gets Akumatized for the 23rd time in "Timetagger", the heroes activate their powers half-heartedly and take him down in less than a minute offscreen. Even the observing crowd seems to be tired of it.
  • Recurring Boss: "Timetagger" reveals that he's already been akumatized 23 times and comes back twice in the same episode. Ladybug and Cat Noir even defeat him offscreen those last two times and even the crowd seems to have lost interest in their fights against him. However, his 51st battle in "Miraculous World: New York - United Heroez" was able to draw in an excited crowd, and over 200,000 likes on Alya's stream of it.
  • Road Apples: His strategy to convince Ladybug and Cat Noir to hand over their Miraculous? Trap them in a birdcage and order his pigeons to poop on them until they surrender. Ew.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: He usually relies on his whistle to give orders, but he can still understand what his pigeons are saying.
  • Synchronized Swarming: He can have his pigeons form various shapes, like planes.

"Oh, Ra, god of the sun, accept this humble offering and return the princess to me!"
Voiced by: Franck Tordjman (FR), Vic Mignogna (EN), Víctor Hugo Aguilar (MEX), César Díaz (SP), Rodrigo Antas (BP), Alessandro Campaiola (ITA)

A villain who can summon the powers of Egyptian gods. His civilian self is Jalil Kubdel. His Akuma is contained in his necklace.

  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: His entire motivation is to bring back his deceased Queen.
  • Eye Beams: His Anubis mask fires beams to turn people into mummies.
  • Flight: When channeling Horus.
  • Guttural Growler: Vic Mignogna uses his Broly voice for Pharaoh.
  • Fake Memories: Unlike most Akumatized villains, who are motivated by the desires and memories of their civilian selves, Jalil is given an entirely new identity and memories when he's Akumatized, believing himself to be the reincarnation of a Pharaoh and thiking he's fought a Ladybug Miraculous wielder in the past, even though his civilian identity is just a historian working at a museum.
  • Human Sacrifice: His plan involves sacrificing Alya to resurrect his Queen.
  • Mask of Power: He switches between different masks, each corresponding to an ancient Egyptian deity, that allow him to channel the power of said gods.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: Does the Pharaoh's resurrection ritual really work, like Jalil theorized, or was it just Hawk Moth's power? Or a combination of both, given that Ladybug has supposedly thwarted it before? It's never made clear.
  • Monochromatic Eyes: When Akumatized, his eyes become solidly colored.
  • Mummy Wrap: His Anubis mask grants him the power to turn people into mummies.
  • Nepharious Pharaoh: Believes himself to be the reincarnation of an ancient Pharaoh.
  • Only the Pure of Heart: The only candidates for his resurrection ritual are pure souls.
  • Physical God: Literally, given his Egyptian-god motif and related abilities.
  • Reality Warper: Some of his masks give him different ways of warping physics. For example: The Thoth one turns him into something of a Time Master, the Anubis one allows him to transform others into mummies, and his Ra-related ritual involves opening some kind of city-sized portal in the sky.
  • Sadly Mythtaken: There are a lot of liberties taken on the Egyptian myths that power him up, like Thoth granting him Time Master abilities when he was just a writing and knowledge deity.
  • Sculpted Physique: He looks like a basalt sculpture.
  • Seeks Another's Resurrection: He wants to resurrect his beloved Queen.
  • Shockwave Clap: He does this against Ladybug and Cat Noir using his Sekhmet mask.
  • Super Power Lottery: A sure winner among the Villains of the Week. He was granted the power of numerous Egyptian gods. Beaten only because of sheer luck. Though considering the heroes' powersets, this is not an illegitimate way to win.
  • Super Strength: When channeling Sekhmet, he can bend steel bars.
  • Time Stands Still: His Thoth mask creates bubbles which cause those within to slow to a crawl.
  • Unknown Rival: Ladybug is completely unaware that the Pharaoh considers her his nemesis.

"Mayor, you're under arrest for abuse of power."
Voiced by: Martial Le Minoux (FR), Christopher Corey Smith (EN), Manuel Pérez (MEX), Alfredo Martínez (SP), János Bácskai (HUN)

A villain who turns into a robotic police officer. His civilian self is Officer Roger Raincomprix, Sabrina's father. His Akuma is contained in his whistle.

  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: At the very least he looks and acts this way, even if it's not clear if he's actually a robot in any way.
  • Dub Name Change: In the Korean version, Roger's villain name is Robocop.
  • Energy Weapon: He can shoot laser beams from his gauntlets.
  • Flying Car: His method of transportation.
  • Incredibly Obvious Bug: The tracking device that Rogercop attaches to the mayor's car is fairly small, but has a blinking light on it.
  • Knight Templar: While more benign than a lot of other examples out there, he's nonetheless a self-appointed judge and jury who ultimately desires to overhaul Paris's entire legal system.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: He metes out punishments that match the crime. A woman who litters is forced to pick up trash, and the Mayor who abused his authority is forced to cede it.
  • People Puppets: He can control people's bodies, but not their minds, by shooting them with his laser handcuffs.
  • Rage Against the Legal System: Completely overhauls the Parisian police system with his own brand of justice in retaliation for being unjustly fired. The local cops just go along with it. Then again, if he could control their bodies, it was that, or be made to do it whether they liked it or not.
  • Revenge: He is out to get revenge on Mayor Bourgeois for firing him unjustly.
  • Robo Cam: The shots from his point of view are like this — he is in a robotic supersuit, after all.
  • Robo Speak: Talks in a monotone, robotic voice, even when he's laughing. "Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha."

"Sadly, those who get in my way get erased."
Voiced by: Franck Tordjman (FR), Michael Sinterniklaas (EN), Carlos Siller (MEX), Salvi Garrido (SP)

A villain who can bring his art to the real world. His civilian self is Nathaniel, one of Marinette's classmates. His Akuma is contained in his pen.

  • Affably Evil: Evillustrator is downright nice as far as Akuma go: rather than abusing his powers on the innocent and reveling in his newfound evilness as other Akuma are wont to do, Evillustrator initially focuses on Chloe, who had been the one to humiliate him. Once Marinette offers to go on a date with him to distract him, Evillustrator accepts her offer and spares Chloe, uses his powers to create a perfect romantic setting, and carries on a civil conversation with Marinette. Not even Hawk Moth threatening him is enough to make him do his will. It's only when he realizes he's been duped that he snaps and becomes your standard evil Akuma.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has light purple skin.
  • Anti-Villain: Evillustrator only wants to go on a date with Marinette, and he uses no lethal force until she betrays him to Cat Noir.
  • Art Attacker: His powerset.
  • Art Initiates Life: One of his main abilities. He can turn his drawings into real, moving objects.
  • Bishōnen: Not surprising considering Nathaniel designed him as an idealized version of himself.
  • Deathbringer the Adorable: Despite the name, he's among the nicest, if not the nicest villain in the show.
  • Dub Name Change: In the French version he's known as the Illustrator/Artist.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: His reaction when Marinette steals his stylus and reveals that Cat Noir was watching their date.
  • Logical Weakness: As a villain who draws things into existence, he needs a decent light source to draw properly. When deprived of that, he's powerless.
  • Love Makes You Evil: He became the Evillustrator as a result of being teased about his one-sided crush on Marinette.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: All he wants is for Marinette to like him, and he's perfectly willing to give up on doing any evil when she asks.
  • Multicolored Hair: Red with purple ends. His bangs look like the bristles of a paintbrush.
  • Nice Hat: He wears a black beret.
  • Reality Warper: Can draw anything into, and/or erase anything out of, existence.
  • A Sinister Clue: He is left-handed. Especially noticeable since his civilian self is right-handed.
  • Stalker with a Crush: He enters Marinette's room without permission to ask her on a date.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: He pursues Chloe first, intent on using his powers to humiliate her after she did the same to him. As soon as he's immobilised Chat Noir and Marinette, he goes straight to her home to continue.
  • Then Let Me Be Evil: Unlike the other Akumatized villains he has no villainous agenda other than getting revenge on Chloé, which he quickly drops once Marinette asks him to and agrees to go on a date with him. However, once he finds out that Marinette only agreed to the date to help Cat Noir get his Akuma, he promptly gives up on trying to be good for her and continues his Roaring Rampage of Revenge on Chloé.
  • Villainous Crush: After transforming into the Evillustrator, the first thing he does is go and ask Marinette on a date. He even puts off attempting to get the Miraculous because he's so focused on trying to spend time with her.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: One has to wonder why he resorted to attacking Chloé with buzzsaws when he could've just straight-up erased her from existence on the spot.
  • Woman Scorned: Gender-inversion. Evillustrator becomes much more dangerous when he sees that Marinette only went on a date with him to help Cat Noir defeat him.
  • You Monster!: Played for Laughs, Chloe calls him a monster when he deletes some of her stuff to find her.

    Dark Cupid
"No love affair or friendship will escape my fury. No one will ever love again!"
Voiced by: Alexandre Nguyen (FR), Grant George (EN), Alan Bravo (MEX), José Leonardo (BP), Eran Mor (HEB), Károly Moser (HUN)

A villain who can shoot arrows that make people hate love. His civilian self is Kim, one of Marinette's classmates. His Akuma is contained in his brooch.

  • Bottomless Magazines: He shoots people all around Paris, but never runs out of arrows. This might be justified as one of his powers. But on the other hand, he remarks that he shouldn't waste an arrow on Chloé, so it's possible he does have a limited number of arrows in his quill.
  • Dub Name Change: Known as Heartbreaker in the French version.
  • Fallen Cupid: As his name would imply, he is a Fallen Angel-esque villain that uses his arrows to induce hatred and is the antagonist of the Valentine's Day Episode.
  • Hate Plague: His arrows have the power to turn people's feelings of love and friendship into hate.
  • The Heavy: He's a big part of Hawk Moth's plans in "Mayura", as it's his ability to infect cured civilians with negative emotions that lets Hawk Moth reakumatize them almost immediately and even plays a role in Rena Rogue, Carapace, and Queen Bee's Akumatizations.
  • Love Makes You Evil: Became evil in the first place due to Chloé's brutal rejection of his feelings.
  • Marked Change: Victims of his arrows gain black lipstick.
  • Not Worth Killing: When he finally catches up to Chloé, he decides against shooting her, as someone as mean as her likely wouldn't be any different. He did get Sabrina, though, so Chloé got some comeuppance.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Because he's a corruption of the normal intent of Valentine's Day, he has this colour scheme.
  • Something About a Rose: Upon closer inspection, the heads of his arrows are shaped like black and red roses.
  • Winged Humanoid: Fitting with the Cupid motif, he has large black wings which let him fly around.
  • Woman Scorned: Gender-inversion. His rejection by Chloé is the catalyst for Kim turning into Dark Cupid.

Ladybug: "Did you see how it just left Ivan alone?"
Cat Noir: "Yeah, what's that all about?"
Ladybug: "*gasps* I think the monster... is Mylène!"
Voiced by: Jessie Lambotte (FR), Jessica Gee (EN); Noriko Takaya (rest) and Valentina Souza (only episode 4) (MEX), Yolanda Gil (SP), Pamella Rodrigues (BP)

A monstrous villain who kidnaps people and leaves behind trails of slime and gunk, growing stronger through fear. Her civilian self is Mylène, one of Marinette's classmates. Her Akuma is contained in a pin on her bandana.

  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Horrificator spares Ivan for his earlier sympathy toward a frightened Mylène.
  • Emotion Eater: She feeds on fear, though conversely she is weakened when her victims show no fear.
  • Extra Eyes: She has a third eye in her forehead.
  • I'm Not Afraid of You: The key to defeating her. She grows stronger the more she's feared, and shrinks when someone reacts to her with fascination or joy.
  • Make My Monster Grow: Her size increases as she gets more powerful.
  • Morphic Resonance: Despite her inhuman appearance, the tentacles on Horrificator's head are in the same shape as Mylène's hairstyle.
  • People Jars: She seals her victims in gooey containers.
  • Prehensile Tail: Her long tail is strong enough to snatch and carry several humans.
  • Recurring Boss: She returns in "Heroes' Day" and in "Gang of Secrets".
  • The Smurfette Principle: She's the only female giant villain in Scarlet Moth's army.
  • The Speechless: She never speaks, only growls. Due to her monstrous appearance, it can be assumed that this is because she is unable to speak.
  • Super Spit: She can spit huge amounts of a bright pink goo that hardens almost instantly, which she uses to immobilize her victims.
  • Took a Level in Badass: When she is reakumatized as part of the Gang of Secrets, she consumes enough fear to turn into a kaiju.

Voiced by: Thierry Kazazian (FR), Joe Fria (EN), Armando Coria (MEX), Miguel Ángel Pérez (SP)

A villain who can turn those he knights into mindless knight minions. His civilian self is Armand D'Argencourt, Adrien's fencing instructor, who unsuccessfully campaigned for mayor and had his past used against him. His Akuma is contained in his sword.

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: His sword cuts through anything but the weapons of the Miraculous holders, probably because they're magical.
  • An Axe to Grind: His Mooks wield long axes.
  • Black Knight: Both he and his ancestor share this motif.
  • Dub Name Change: Chevalier NoirTranslation  in the French version.
  • Magic Knight: Is a master swordsman as well as something of a Sorcerous Overlord (especially when he finally plants his flag atop City Hall).
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: "Darkblade" was apparently the name of his ancestor. And according to D'Argencourt, he was definitely quite the badass, conquering and ruling Paris with an iron fist at one point in history.
  • Reality Warper: Can transform people into knights, objects into medieval weapons, etc. Not to mention, of course, his eventual World-Wrecking Wave (see below).
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: He wears a black armor with a few red linings.
  • Slave Mooks: Using his sword, he can brainwash civilians into kneeling before him. Knighting them transforms them into axe-wielding soldiers in plate armor. Doing the same to a pair of cars turns them into trebuchets.
  • Tin Tyrant: Attempted to take over Paris and continue his ancestor's legacy, all while clad in a dark suit of armor.
  • World-Wrecking Wave: When he plants his flag on City Hall, it surrounds the city in a slowly collapsing barrier that transforms everyone it touches into knights.


A mime whose pantomimes reflect in reality. His civilian self is Fred Haprèle. His Akuma is in a picture of his daughter, which is his Good Luck Charm.

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: His pantomime blade can slice the Eiffel Tower and even the screen.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: His skin is a pale purple.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: He never speaks, but he is deadly.
  • Breakout Villain: He was one of the few villains from the original concept for the series that was deemed popular enough to not only transition into the main series but had a character modeled after him in the Quantum Kids lineup, known as Kid Mime.
  • Enemy Mime: He's a mime-themed Akuma victim out to get Ladybug and Cat Noir.
  • Load-Bearing Hero: In a rare case of a villain doing this, Ladybug tricks him into cutting down the Eiffel Tower, which he then has to protect himself from by miming strength to lift the tower up. Since he can't create anything else, Ladybug is able to easily take his Akuma.
  • Nice Hat: His bowler hat, traditional for a mime.
  • Rage Against the Reflection: He attacks any and all posters of his mime act. Ladybug actually exploits this in order to beat him.
  • Silent Antagonist: Unlike most of the other villains, he doesn't talk and only does what Hawk Moth orders him to (although he lets out a small groan when blocking the falling Eiffel Tower). Justified, as he's based on a mime.
  • Superpower Lottery: The seemingly limitless variety of things that he can create via Your Mime Makes It Real practically makes him a Reality Warper, and his creations' invisibility gives him something of an unpredictability advantage as well. The only real catch is that he can only have one creation at a time. This is pretty much the only reason the heroes were able to beat him.
  • Your Mime Makes It Real: He can make anything, from swords to bazookas to working vehicles. The catch is that he can only make one at a time, and any he previously created ceases to be.

    Kung Food
"Bwahaha! You have eaten my soup, you become my servants!"
Voiced by: Philippe Roullier (FR), Todd Haberkorn (EN), Mauricio Pérez (MEX)

An evil martial artist and chef who can summon food-based weapons. His civilian self is Marinette's uncle Wang Cheng, an accomplished chef who had his dish sabotaged during a cooking contest. His Akuma is in his toque.

  • Acrofatic: He's on the heavier side, but still an agile Kung Fu fighter.
  • Anime Hair: It actually looks just like Goku's hair.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has dull purple skin.
  • Bag of Holding: He can pull out all sorts of weapons and items from his bag.
  • BFS: His pepperoni pizza sword would make Cloud Strife proud.
  • Bilingual Bonus: The Chinese character on his jacket and bag (餐) means "dining".
  • Chef of Iron: He and his minions fight using food as weapons.
  • Dual Tonfas: Two of his weapons, made out of sushi rolls.
  • Edible Bludgeon: His weapons and those of his minions' — a mace made out of seafood, a whip made out of sausages, a crossbow made out of cheese, a bow and arrow made out of desserts, tonfas made out of sushi, and a BFS made out of pepperoni pizza.
  • Evil Chef: Trying to cook a young girl alive is bad, even if said girl is Chloé.
  • Food Chains: The four judges that ate his ruined soup prior to him being Akumatized are brought under his control as minions.
  • A Handful for an Eye: He blows spices into Cat Noir's face to distract him.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: The ingredients of his special stew include potatoes, spices, and Chloé Bourgeois.
  • Shout-Out: His appearance brings to mind an iconic anime hero who is actually based on the Chinese legend Sun Wukong. Also, his pizza sword is shaped exactly like the Buster Sword.
  • Sinister Surveillance: He has control over winged egg surveillance drones that he uses to spy on the heroes from the roof of Le Grand Paris.

A mecha-piloting gamer whose game is to destroy Paris. His civilian self is Max Kanté, one of Marinette's classmates. His Akuma is contained in his glasses.

  • All Your Powers Combined: After the PvP matches are done, Gamer 2.0 fights Ladybug directly, seemingly able to access the forms of the Akumatized villains he kidnapped as well as their powers.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: His skin is purple.
  • Cap: The robots have only four levels.
  • Eye Beams: His beams are fired from the eye on the pyramid.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He wears a pair of green, butterfly-shaped glasses, and is one of Hawk Moth's thralls.
  • Graceful Loser: In "Gamer 2.0", once Ladybug defeats him in a fighting game tournament, he voluntarily surrenders his Akuma.
  • Humongous Mecha: Once he's gained enough points to evolve twice, his robot becomes a giant mecha.
  • Pyramid Power: He travels around in a pyramid which shoots lasers, later serving as the head of his mecha. His Akumatization in "Gamer 2.0" also transforms the local football stadium into a massive pyramid.
  • Recurring Boss: After his titular episode, Gamer returns in both "Heroes' Day" and again in "Gamer 2.0".
  • Rewarding Vandalism: His pyramid beams are essentially this as applied to real life. Every civilian he zaps is worth a point. Cars and such are worth several. Once he gains enough points, his robot evolves, first gaining legs then becoming a Humongous Mecha.
  • This Is a Drill: One of his mecha's attacks is to use the giant pyramid that makes up its head as a drill.

A former zookeeper named Otis Césaire who is now a shapeshifter that seeks revenge on Kim for mocking his prized panther. His Akuma is in his bracelet.

When Hawk Moth is communicating with her, her face is tinged purple; other than that the audience (but not the characters) can see a light distortion where she is.
Voiced by: Marie Nonnenmacher (FR), Marieve Herington (EN), Valentina Souza (MEX), Anna Lamboni (HUN)

Chloé's friend Sabrina, turned invisible to get revenge on Chloé. Her Akuma is in her brooch.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: When Hawk Moth communicates with her, her skin is shown to be purple.
  • Boring, but Practical: Compared to some of the other villains, just being invisible isn't very flashy compared to say, Voluntary Shapeshifting and People Puppets. But she still came a lot closer to stealing Ladybug's earrings than some other villains have.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Is defeated halfway through the episode to make way for the true Villain of the Week, Antibug.
  • Dub Name Change: In the French version, she's called the Invisible One.
  • Evil Is Petty: Before Ladybug and Cat Noir show up, she uses her invisibility to hilariously humiliate Chloé.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: When Hawk Moth communicates with her, the audience can see that she wears the same glasses as her civilian self. When she's re-Akumatized in the "Heroes' Day" arc, they're her Akumatized object.
  • Invisibility: Her power, which only slips when Hawk Moth communicates with her.
  • Invisible Jerkass: Before Ladybug and Cat Noir figure out what's going on, she just uses her powers to torment Chloé in petty ways.
  • Red Herring: Which shouldn't be terribly surprising considering she is not the namesake of the episode she appears in.
  • Satellite Character: She is the only Akumatized villain (shown on screen at least) to not get an episode named after her, and serves more as the catalyst for Chloé's Akumatization than a villainess in her own right.
  • Teen Super Spy: In her second appearance during the "Heroes' Day" arc, Scarlet Moth sends Vanisher to follow Ladybug in the hopes of finding the location of the Guardian. Fortunately, Ladybug suspects her presence and is quick to defeat her.
  • Visible Invisibility: There's a light distortion wherever she moves, enough for the audience to see but not the characters.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has purple hair, as can be seen when Hawk Moth communicates with her.

The anti-Ladybug. Her civilian self is Chloé. Her Akuma is in her earrings.

    The Puppeteer
(through Lady Wifi) No! I'm Puppeteer! And I want those dolls NOW!!!
Voiced by: Marie Nonnenmacher (FR), Stephanie Sheh (EN), Pamela Mendoza (MEX), Laura Gyarmati (HUN)

A villain with the power to control others through dolls made in their likeness. Her civilian self is Manon, the little girl Marinette babysits on occasion. Her Akuma is in her toy wand.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Her skin is purple.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: The second youngest Akumatized villain and is just as insane as the rest of them.
  • The Bus Came Back: Puppeteer returns in "The Puppeteer 2". That time around, she has a different powerset that involves making statues come to life instead of controlling people through dolls.
  • Creepy Child: A corrupted 5-year-old who can control people through their respective doll. Dare say she's not creepy after reading that.
  • Enfante Terrible: The first of many Akumatized villains to come who originated from a child.
  • Magic Wand: Enchants her dolls by shooting a spell from her Akumatized wand.
  • Near-Villain Victory: Despite literally being one of the most childish villains Hawk Moth has created, she comes within a hair's breadth of winning. It helps that, unlike most of his villains, she already wants to defeat Ladybug and Cat Noir.
  • People Puppets: By enchanting a doll of her target, the Puppeteer is able to command their movements and speak through them. There is no known range limit.
  • Power Floats: She floats around everywhere, probably because it would be hard to take a knee-high villain seriously otherwise.
  • Super Empowering: A quirk of her power is that any formerly Akumatized villains she controls get their powers back. She is able to revive Lady WiFi, the Evillustrator, and Rogercop in this fashion. During her second Akumatization, if she brings a statue of a person with superpoweers to life, the statue will have the same powers as the real person.
  • Superpower Lottery: Arguably the biggest winner yet. Her Villain Override is even more widespread than Hawk Moth's; her People Puppets consist of some of the stronger villains seen so far; and she can even control anyone, not just other villains, so long as she has a corresponding doll.
  • Technicolor Eyes: She has purple sclerae.

Reflekta wants the world to notice her, and she'll do it by making everyone look like her. Her civilian self is Juleka Couffaine, one of Marinette's classmates. Her Akuma is in the gem on her hand.

  • Bright Is Not Good: She wears a bright pink outfit with white eye patterns, but she is working for Hawk Moth.
  • The Bus Came Back: Reflekta returns in "Reflekdoll", and this time, she has help in the form of one of Mayura's Sentimonsters. She makes another return in "Felix," along with Princess Fragrance and Lady WiFi, and in "Gang of Secrets" alongside the same two villains, but this time with Horrificator and Timebreaker as well.
  • Clone by Conversion: Her beams turn whoever they hit into a physical copy of herself, though still possessing their own mind and voices and lacking her powers.
  • Cool, but Inefficient: Her only superpower (aside from strength and speed) is the ability to make everyone else look just like her. Using this power on Ladybug and Cat Noir however makes her unable to get their Miraculous. Funny, considering Hawk Moth gave her these powers for the sole purpose of doing that.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Her only attack is to convert people into copies of herself, which annoyed Hawk Moth when she converted Cat Noir and couldn't take his Miraculous as a result. Furthermore, since he's already converted, her beams do nothing to him on subsequent hits. Conversely, this also means Reflekta is immune to her own power.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: She is the main antagonist for most of "Reflekdoll", but she is taken out at the 3/4 mark and the rampaging eponymous Sentimonster is the final problem of the episode.
  • Impractically Fancy Outfit: She looks like a kabuki-themed clown in a rubber tutu and platform shoes. This doesn't hinder Reflekta nearly as much as it does for her clones because Power Floats.
  • Recurring Boss: Reflekta has made a whopping six appearances, making her possibly the most recurring akumatized villain in the series (not counting Mr. Pigeon's numerous offscreen recurrences). After her eponymous episode, she comes back for another swing at the heroes in "Reflekdoll", again, albeit briefly, in "Ladybug", again in "Félix" alongside Lady WiFi and Princess Fragrance, and she also returns alongside Lady WiFi, Horrificator, Timebreaker and Princess Fragrance in Gang of Secrets. She returns again for Guiltrip along with the eponymous sentimonster, though she doesn't fight herself.
  • Revenge: In her first appearance, she wants revenge on Chloé for making her miss the class picture. Once she gets it by converting Chloé, she moves on to converting the entire town. In her second appearance, she targets Marinette's photo shoot for being denied the opportunity to be the model.
  • Symbol Motif Clothing: Reflekta is covered in the pattern of an eye, not just on her outfit, but on her hair... or headdress.
  • The Unfought: In "Guiltrip", the actual Reflekta (Juleka) does not fight the heroes at all, but her clones controlled by Guiltrip do.
  • Ungrateful Bitch: In "Reflekdoll", she begs the heroes to save her when Reflekdoll is driven berserk by an errant Cataclysm, and then tries to attack them as soon as she's safe. Mister Bug immediately lampshades this, noting she could show a little more gratitude.
  • Villainous Friendship: Downplayed. While she has no problem targeting Rose as an ordinary citizen, she works well with her as Princess Fragrance in "Gang of Secrets", combining their powers to take control of the school students and staff.
  • Voices Are Mental: Even though the people she converts are exact physical duplicates, they retain their normal voices.
  • Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: Her eyes are yellow and she is one of Hawk Moth's servants.

    Guitar Villain

Voiced by: Matthew Géczy (FR), Lex Lang (EN), Fidel Garriga Jr. (MEX), Alfredo Martínez (SP)

A rock-and-roller angry at the increasing popularity of "soulless" pop music, armed with a sonic guitar weapon and accompanied by his dragon sidekick Fang. His civilian self is rock star Jagged Stone, who's become increasingly frustrated at his record label's demands for him to be more like pop star XY. His Akuma is in his guitar.

  • Beard of Evil: He retains the same beard as his civilian self.
  • Breath Weapon: As befitting a dragon, Fang can breathe green fire.
  • Calling Your Attacks:
    "Rockin' Riff, Baby!"
    "Awesome Solo!"
    "Ultimate Solo!"
  • Cool Pet: A crocodile, and one that gets akumatized along with its owner.
  • Earthquake Machine: His "Seismic Shock!"/"Ultimate Solo!" projects waves of sound which vibrate everything around him.
  • Gale-Force Sound: His "Shocking Riff!"/"Awesome Solo!" fires a beam of sound from his guitar that can crack stone.
  • Instrument of Murder: His guitar is the source of his power and his primary weapon, projecting various kinds of weaponized sound. He also uses it as a melee weapon against Cat Noir.
  • Involuntary Dance: His primary attack on civilian victims is to make them dance against their will to his rock tunes.
  • Large Ham: More flamboyant and hammy than even the standard villain of the week; justified of course since his civilian self is in the entertainment business.
  • The Music Meister: His "Rockin' Riff, Baby!" forces people to dance and shout like they're at a rock and roll concert.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: Jagged Stone's pet crocodile Fang gets Akumatized along with him, getting turned into a dragon at Guitar Villain's beck and call.
  • The Power of Rock: Played with; while Guitar Villain's rock-and-roll powers make him another Villain of the Week, they do come about as a desire for Jagged Stone's personal creative freedom (which he wins back by the end of the episode).
  • Punny Name: Take a wild guess.
  • Revenge: He wants revenge against the pop singer XY for mocking his music.
  • Scaled Up: Fang gets turned into a dragon.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has light pink hair with a darker shade of pink at the tips.

"Photo finish."
Voiced by: Franck Tordjman (FR), Matthew Mercer (ENG), Luis Fernando Orozco (MEX), Mckeidy Lisita (BP)

A villainous Camera Fiend who seeks to literally capture the image of his idol, Jagged Stone, even if he must capture all of Paris first. His civilian self is Vincent Aza, a freelance photographer. His Akuma is in his camera lens.

  • Catchphrase: "Look into the lens!" ("Regarde l'objectif!", in French.) Doubles as (non-lethal) Pre-Mortem One-Liner.
  • Dimension Lord: Has a Prison Dimension to hold his photographed victims. Cat Noir ends up having to invoke Reality Bleed via Cataclysm to free everyone.
  • Dub Name Change: His original French name is Numeric or Digital.
  • Eye Beams: His camera is a headset with a large lens over one eye, creating this effect whenever he zaps people.
  • Intangibility: He can fire pixelating beams which cause whatever limb they hit to become intangible, though still attached to the person. He manages to get Ladybug's right arm and leg with this attack.
  • Loony Fan: Unlike Vincent, Pixelator sees no issue with holding innocent people (and Stone's beloved crocodile Fang) hostage to coerce the rock star to pose for a perfect photograph.
  • Phantom Zone Picture: Whoever he snaps a picture of is transported to a very big White Void Room, contained in photographs on the wall of his apartment. Anyone who finds the photographs can see within.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has bubblegum-pink hair.

    Simon Says
"Simon Says the show is not over!"
Voiced by: Franck Tordjman (FR), Ezra Weisz (EN), José Gilberto Vilchis (MEX)

A hypnotist whose power goes beyond mere suggestion, forcing those hit by his cards to obey all his commands. His civilian self is Simon Grimault, and his Akuma is in his deck of cards.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: His skin is pale periwinkle.
  • Bald of Evil: Simon lacks his brown wavy hair in Akumatized form.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Anyone or anything hit by his cards is subject to whatever command he placed on the card beforehand. This ranges from becoming Slave Mooks to acting like animals.
  • Death Dealer: He's able to throw his cards like knives with perfect accuracy.
  • Dub Name Change: In the original French, he is Jackady, a play on "Jacques a dit", the French equivalent to Simon Says. For this reason, his civilian identity is named Jacques Grimault.
  • Evil Is Petty: After taking Gabriel Agreste hostage, the first thing he does is brainwash him into acting like a butterfly. He follows this up by having him act like a plane, which would have led to Gabriel leaping to his death.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Just look at his suit's coloration.
  • Needle in a Stack of Needles: His Akuma is in one of his cards, kept in a deck of identical cards that are seemingly limitless. He even exploits this to distract Cat Noir when they first fight. Ladybug and Cat Noir eventually cut the knot by destroying the entire deck at once.
  • Nice Hat: He wears a bright green top hat with the bottom of the bill being black and a purple ribbon around the crown.
  • Power Nullifier: He's able to break Ladybug's yo-yo by hitting it with a card designed to render it useless. Cat Noir prevented him from repeating the trick on his staff.
  • Revenge: He wants revenge on Gabriel Agreste for rudely dismissing him on television before he could even perform his act. Considering how Gabriel treats everyone around him, it's hard not to root for him a little.
  • Secondary Color Nemesis: He's green and purple all over.
  • Slave Mooks: He uses his cards to turn dozens of people into soldiers under his command.
  • Verbal Tic: Simon Says: that is indeed the case here.

    Magician of Misfortune

A random, offscreen Villain of the Week who wants to make the Eiffel Tower vanish for some reason. His civilian self is Jean Duparc, and his the location of his Akuma is never revealed.

  • Generic Doomsday Villain: It's never known just why he wants to "poof" the Eiffel Tower away, nor is it important given the episode's focus on Princess Fragrance instead.
  • The Ghost: Is only mentioned, let alone seen, in a brief news report — and only as his de-Evilized self at that (his Akumatized self is briefly seen in a police sketch, though).
  • Informed Ability: Is said to be trying to make an enormous landmark disappear, an ability which, when factored along with his alleged magician motif, supposedly makes him something of a Reality Warper.
  • Nice Hat: A black tophat with two stars on the right and left with a crescent moon in the middle.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: We never get to see his battle with Ladybug and Cat Noir.
  • Red Herring: Has no importance other than just to be another example of Ladybug's and Cat's exploits.

An illusion-casting villain, based on the Fox Miraculous holder seen in the Miraculous book. Her civilian self is Lila Rossi, a New Transfer Student at Marinette's school. Her Akuma is in her fox tail necklace.

  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: A fox-themed supervillain.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Her name is the Italian word for vixen, literally meaning "little fox".
  • The Bus Came Back: Hawk Moth Akumatizes her again in "Catalyst" so she can make it look like an Akumatized Ladybug murdered Cat Noir.
  • Cunning Like a Fox: Volpina is as sneaky and sly as the animal she is based on.
  • Doppelgänger Spin: One of her favorite tactics is to create copies of herself to confuse her foes.
  • Effective Knockoff: While the actual Fox Miraculous bestows the special power "Mirage", allowing its wielder to generate one illusion before needing to recharge, Volpina can generate as many illusions as she wants with no sign of fatigue or limitation. The only caveat is that they disappear when touched. However, in "Timetagger", Bunnyx shows that a Miraculous holder can not only use their power without needing to detransform, they can use their power multiple times. It stands to reason that, given enough time to gain sufficient experience, Alya would be able to utilise her powers enough times to put her on par with or even surpass Volpina.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: In her first appearance: unique among Akumatized villains, she tries her best to keep everyone from getting involved in her battle with Ladybug. This standard goes straight out the window by "Catalyst" where she traumatizes everyone in Paris to help Hawk Moth's plans.
  • Evil Knockoff:
    • Of the Fox Miraculous wielders.
    • In “Catalyst” she also creates an Evil Knockoff of Ladybug via illusion, where it looks as though she was Akumatized and kills Cat Noir.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: With the help of her illusions she "saves" Paris from a giant meteor and enjoys the adoration of the grateful Parisians.
  • False Friend: Invoked by Hawk Moth. Volpina sets herself up as Paris' newest superheroine and ally to Ladybug and Cat Noir, only to trick them into chasing after illusions of Hawk Moth so she can trap Ladybug.
    Hawk Moth: Gain Ladybug and Cat Noir's trust, and convince them you're a real superhero, then betray them and bring me their Miraculous!
  • Fantastic Foxes: Considering the show is produced in Japan and South Korea, and the Miraculous have Chinese ties, it's likely Volpina is intended to be a general compilation of the traits shared between the East Asian fox spirits: the Chinese 'huli jing', the Japanese 'kitsune', and the Korean 'gumiho/kumiho'. These spirits are not identical across these cultures, but they share portrayals as cunning illusionists who disguise themselves as attractive young women to seduce and murder men.
  • Flying Brick: What she initially tries to pass herself as, by creating an illusion of a comet which she then pretends to stop in its tracks. In reality, she might be more of a Squishy Wizard.
  • Four Is Death: She's one of the most formidable of Hawk Moth's minions, and her design has four "tails": the belt, the side locks of her Hime Cut, and her enormous mane of hair worn as a fox tail.
  • Hime Cut: Her sidetails look like fox tails and together with the illusion powers, they allude to the idea of kitsune. It is a non-standard use of the trope given that it is usually reserved for elite girls.
  • Instrument of Murder: Her flute doubles as a Simple Staff.
  • Magical Flutist: She uses her flute to cast illusions.
  • Magic Music: She's always shown playing a short tune before casting her illusions.
  • Magic Staff: Her flute is long enough to wield as a staff and it's the focus of her illusion powers.
  • Master of Illusion: Her flute can create realistic illusions.
  • Near-Villain Victory: Came very close to get the Ladybug Miraculous twice, only foiled by dumb luck the first time and something she couldn't have seen coming the second. Of all of Hawk Moth's Season 1 villains, only the Puppeteer came closer to winning than her.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Her refusal to involve civilians actually costs her the fight: while she knows that Adrien could serve as a hostage against Ladybug she doesn't even try to kidnap him, opting for an illusory double that gets exposed by Cat Noir for obvious reasons. Had she tried to use the actual Adrien she would have been successful or at least exposed his secret identity.
  • Not Brainwashed: In "Catalyst", she's assisting Hawk Moth of her own free will.
  • Personality Powers: As Lila, she is a Consummate Liar that builds herself up as more important than she really is as a means of getting what she wants that do not hold up to scrutiny. As Volpina, she creates illusions to both stage fake acts of heroism to gain the trust of others and fabricate threats to limit her opponents' options. However, the illusions fall apart once touched and she herself isn't very strong herself on her own like how flimsy her own elaborate lies are once their flaws are pointed out.
  • Race Lift: A non-casting variant; Volpina's skin tone is subtly lighter than Lila's, most likely to make her look similar to a past Fox superheroine from the Miraculous Book.
  • Recurring Boss: She's been Akumatized into Volpina three times: in "Volpina", "Catalyst" and "Mayura".
  • Revenge: She wants revenge on Ladybug for ruining her chances with Adrien. Interestingly, her hate and rage are focused on Ladybug, not Cat Noir. She even flirts with him. When she returns in "Catalyst", her motivation for being Akumatized is to get revenge on Ladybug.
  • Squishy Wizard: Implied. Her illusions make her formidable and she's pretty nimble, but she avoids direct conflict and dodges attacks. When Ladybug and Cat Noir finally pin her down she gets de-Akumatized before she has any chance to fight back.

An angry golem bent on Revenge, becoming stronger every time he gets hit. His civilian self is Ivan Bruel. His Akuma is in a crumpled up note in his hand.

    Santa Claws
Voiced by: Martial Le Minoux (FR), Joe Ochman (EN), Rubén Cerda (MEX)

The villain of the Christmas Episode, a local Santa Claus who believes that people no longer respect the holiday. His Akuma is in his hat.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Under all his white hair and beard, his skin is green.
  • Badass Biker: His Akumatized outfit resembles a cross between the traditional Santa Claus design and that of a biker.
  • Bad Santa: His civilian self decidedly isn't this, but he got Akumatized into one after Ladybug accused him of being one of Hawk Moth's supervillains. He leaves bad presents for people in order to ruin the spirit of the holiday.
  • Bag of Holding: He holds an infinite number of gift-wrapped boxes in his Santa-bag, which contain whatever he may happen to need.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Thanks to Adrien's kindness to his un-Akumatized self, Santa Claws claims to owe the boy a debt and neglects trying to ruin his Christmas.
  • Dub Name Change: His original name is "Pire Noël". It's a play on Père Noël/Father Christmas, and means "Worse Christmas" or "Bother Christmas."
  • Fartillery: The green cloud Santa Claws and his reindeer exude apparently smells, on account of Ladybug's reaction to it.
  • The Grinch: Santa Claw's plot is to ruin Christmas for everyone (except Adrien) just as it was ruined for him.
  • Happy Dance: He does one as he sings before unleashing one of his magic presents onto his unsuspecting victims.
  • Mall Santa: He's a roaming Santa who gives out gifts and wishes people merry Christmas. He even has a horse-drawn sleigh.
  • Nice Hat: His santa hat, which is also where his Akuma is located.
  • Reality Warper: Can conjure almost anything via his Bag of Holding, invoke Intangibility through buildings, etc.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Red irises, yellow sclera.
  • Shout-Out: His appearance somewhat resembles the Grinch.
  • Then Let Me Be Evil: Santa Claws becomes Akumatized because of the damage Ladybug did to him thinking that he was an Akumatized villain.
  • Twisted Christmas: He is a Christmas-themed supervillain who sought to destroy Christmas using gifts full of bats, spiders and a variety of other horrifying concoctions.
  • Villain Song: "Bad Santa Claws".


How well does it match the trope?
