    The Collector
"I am now... The Collector! My book of inspiration has been taken from me, so I shall build a new one! And perhaps pick up a Miraculous or two while I'm at it!"
Voiced by: Antoine Tome (FR), Keith Silverstein (EN), Dafnis Fernández (MEX), Roberto Encinas (SP), Hong Shi-ho (KOR), Hesham Shazli (ARA), Gábor Albert (HUN), Stefano Alessandroni (ITA)

A villain bent on capturing images (and more) of anything and anyone who crosses him to replace his old book. His civilian self is Gabriel Agreste, and his Akuma is in his book.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has light purple skin.
  • Bottomless Magazines: Averted, in contrast to quite a few other Akumatized villains. His book has only so many pages, and once they're all filled he can't collect anything else until he clears some of them.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Though he'll usually keep his mouth shut so he can ambush people with his powers, once he's discovered, he's very enthusiastic in telling his foes that he's now a minion of Hawk Moth. Considering he Akumatized himself to throw off suspicion, one could interpret this as him overplaying the role.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Has wine-colored sunglasses.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: His size and design are intimidating, but it's his ability to effortlessly steal and store pretty much anything or anyone he wants into his book that makes him such a dangerous opponent.
  • Impossible Thief: In the span of an afternoon, he steals the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, and several celebrities during his rampage.
  • Logical Weakness: Getting hit with his book is pretty much a One-Hit Kill regardless of the object's size or nature, but his opponents eventually realize that he can only collect one object at a time and that the pages of his book are of a finite quantity.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: He can use his book as an improvised shield to absorb enemy attacks such as thrown projectiles.
  • Mad Artist: The contents of his missing book were the source of much of the "inspiration" behind the many fashion products he owes his fame and riches to. As the Collector, he desires to replace it with a new book filled with purloined muses.
  • Making a Spectacle of Yourself: His big, wine-colored sunglasses matching the rest of his exaggerated proportions.
  • Not Brainwashed: Gabriel intentionally Akumatized himself in order to throw off suspicion that he is Hawk Moth.
  • Offing the Offspring: One of the first things he sets out on collecting is his own son.
  • Pointy-Haired Boss: Barmy, violent, and possessing an even pointier version of Gabriel's usual hairstyle. His first victims are two of his closest and most beleaguered employees.
  • Precision-Guided Boomerang: His book can be thrown at great distances in an arc and it always returns to his hands, even if it's stopped prematurely by an unintended target.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: His design is predominantly black and red.
  • Red Herring: Invoked. Gabriel deliberately Akumatized himself to deflect suspicion from his identity as Hawk Moth.
  • Required Secondary Powers: He's immune to the effects of his own weapon.
  • Second Super-Identity: In order to keep Ladybug and Cat Noir from finding out that Gabriel Agreste and Hawk Moth are the same person, he proceeds to Akumatize himself, thus making the Collector his second supervillain identity.
  • Summon to Hand: He can call his book back to himself if he loses it somehow.
  • Throw the Book at Them: Very rare non-comedic example.
  • Xanatos Gambit: His very existence is one. Whether or not he succeeds at getting Ladybug's and Cat Noir's Miraculouses, he nevertheless makes himself — as Gabriel Agreste — appear completely innocent of being Hawk Moth.
  • Walking Spoiler: Discussing him will inevitably reveal that Gabriel is actually Hawk Moth, and Akumatized himself.

    Despair Bear

"You've been very naughty, Chloékins. And Despair Bear is not proud of you. The time has come to make you pay!"
Voiced by: Martial Le Minoux (FR), Ben Diskin (EN), Óscar de la Rosa (MEX)

A teddy bear piloted by a tiny man able to control those he grabs. His civilian self is Chloé's butler. The entire bear contains the Akuma.

  • Dub Name Change: He's called Doudou Vilain in the original French version.
  • Harmless Villain: He's actually quite dangerous once provoked, but until Ladybug and Cat Noir show up, he doesn't actually do anything wrong except annoy Chloé.
  • Incredible Shrinking Man: As part of his transformation, Chloé's butler is shrunk down to palm size so he can pilot the bear.
  • Killer Rabbit: A small, cute teddy bear who almost got Ladybug killed.
  • Mind-Control Eyes: His victims have glowing green eyes to signify his control.
  • Mini-Mecha: In the most literal sense. Despair Bear is a regular sized teddy bear, with the human shrunk down and piloting it from within the head.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: After getting control of Cat Noir, Despair Bear activates the Cataclysm without the usual Stock Footage, right when Ladybug is holding him, so she literally has no time or space to avoid the attack. She would have received a One-Hit Kill right there if not for Chloé's quick intervention.
  • People Puppets: Despair Bear can control anyone he can grab.

    Prime Queen
"Welcome to a new show, hosted by me, Prime Queen!"
Voiced by: Jessie Lambotte (FR), Sabrina Weisz (EN), Ruth Toscano (MEX), Marcia Morelli (BP)

A TV-themed villain out to get the scoop on Cat Noir and Ladybug. Her civilian self is Nadja Chamack. The Akuma is in the ratings monitor on her wrist.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: She has bright blue skin.
  • Camera Fiend: In the "Heroes' Day" arc, she serves as Scarlet Moth's camerawoman by broadcasting his takeover for all of Paris to see.
  • Do Not Adjust Your Set: She can hijack any television and broadcast anything within the line of sight of those televisions.
  • Dub Name Change: Audimatrix in the French version.
  • Fragile Speedster: Thanks to her ability to use televisions as portals, she can escape and move fast enough to avoid anyone and block others from using said portals. However, her Akuma doesn't improve her physical ability. Once Ladybug and Cat Noir corner her escape options, she's easily defeated.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: While filming Scarlet Moth's takeover, Prime Queen unintentionally broadcasts Ladybug and Cat Noir defeating and purifying multiple villains. This would result in every non-Akumatized Parisian to unite and help the heroes fend off the Akumatized army.
  • Sadistic Choice: She keeps putting Ladybug and Cat Noir through these, either having them remove their Miraculouses or she kills a civilian. Cat Noir tries to Take a Third Option by having him and Ladybug kiss, which Prime Queen is actually satisfied with, but Ladybug bluntly refuses twice.
  • Shipper on Deck: Exaggerated to its most dangerous degree. Either Ladybug and Cat Noir confess their love for each other on live TV, or she'll drown Alya.
  • Television Portal: She can turn any television into a portal to any other, for herself and others.
  • Tron Lines: Her catsuit has a pattern of bright blue lines and rectangles.

"You don't deserve all these presents, you spoiled little brat! Now, for what you really deserve..."
Voiced by: Nathalie Homs (FR), Reba Buhr (EN)

A witch bent on punishing bad people by turning them into coal... and "rewarding" good people by turning them into her fairy slaves. Her civilian self is Gina, Marinette's grandmother, hurt after discovering that Marinette had lied to her. Her Akuma is in her candy tin.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: She has green skin.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: The reason she turns Sabine into a fairy slave is because she treated her nicely before she was Akumatized.
  • Black-and-White Insanity: In her own standards, she turned bad people into coal and good people into fairies who follow her orders.
  • Bottomless Magazines: Zig-Zagged. Her gun can only hold a limited amount of candy bullets, but the tin where she keeps her extra ammunition seems to be bottomless.
  • Evil Old Folks: This Akumatized villain was created from a woman old enough to be the grandmother of a teenager.
  • Fingerless Gloves: Like her civilian self, she wears black, fingerless gloves.
  • Foil: To Bakerix, her (ex?)husband's Akumatized form. Both are food-themed supervillains (in Befana's case, candy) who were Akumatized due to Marinette's actions, are based on a benevolent character from popular culture, have their Akumas located in a container from where they draw their superpowers and constantly need to be used to recharge them, and even get defeated in similar ways by having Cat Noir destroy a metallic part of the floor with his Cataclysm. However, while Bakerix is a barely human-looking monstrosity strong enough to engage Ladybug and Cat Noir in physical combat, Befana looks much more humanoid and prefers to attack from afar with her gun or make her angelic minions do it for her.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: She isn't immune to her own ammunition. Ladybug and Cat exploit this by using a Lucky Charm tuba to redirect the water from a water main into her when she fires, causing her to coal-ify both the water and herself.
  • Minion Master: She turns people she feels are good into fairies that follow her orders.
  • Offing the Offspring: Turns Tom, her son, into coal and attempts to do the same thing to her granddaughter Marinette.
  • Public Domain Character: Befana is a witch from Italian folklore, though she is traditionally a benevolent character, like a female version of Santa Claus.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Most of her outfit is black and there are a few red linings in it.
  • Required Secondary Powers: Mildly Averted: She's not immune to her own bullets.
  • Skunk Stripe: She has a stripe of gray hair on each side of her head.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: She resembles an older version of Princess Fragrance, with her green skin, black mask-like marking on her eyes and black attire. Her powers resemble Princess Fragrance's too, since they both have guns that fire Abnormal Ammo (perfume and candy respectively), and their guns can either turn others into their slaves or cause a detrimental effect (causing the target to smell like fish or turning people into coal). Additionally, their main source of ammunition is where their Akuma is.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: She's a Wicked Witch who works for Hawk Moth, and she has red eyes.
  • Taken for Granite: Her black candy bullets turn whatever or whoever they hit into coal.
  • Wicked Witch: An evil, green-skinned old woman who rides a flying motorcycle.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Turns most of Marinette's friends into coal and Rose into a fairy slave.

"Allow me to explain the rules to you- you're not allowed to call it quits at any time! Adrien is mine! I will defeat you. Both of you! I am the best fencer!"
Voiced by: Clara Soares (FR), Faye Mata (EN), Nagore Germes (SP)

A villain bent on winning at any cost. Her civilian self is Kagami Tsurugi. Her Akuma is in her sword.

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: Her sword cuts through anything.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Has steel-silver skin.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Her sword is attached to her arm, since it grew out from her ring, so Ladybug's attempt to disarm her fails.
  • Blade Spam: She attacks Ladybug with a series of stabs so fast, it looks like she's using several blades at once.
  • Chrome Champion: A villain in this case, but nevertheless she is covered in shiny metal.
  • Combat Pragmatist: When Cat Noir and Ladybug join forces and start to overpower Riposte, she simply separates her with the help of a safety door and continues to overpower Ladybug.
  • Combat Stilettos: She wears pointy stiletto heels.
  • Culture Equals Costume: To go with Kagami's Japanese heritage, Riposte looks like she's wearing samurai armour and a kabuto helmet.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Adrien beat her in a fencing match on an arguably botched call? She'll slice him up into a million pieces and enjoy it!
  • Everything's Better with Samurai: Even though Kagami is a fencer, Riposte's outfit is clearly inspired by samurai armor.
  • Expy: Of The Silver Samurai.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Riposte is fast enough with her blade to use Blade Spam, can leap tremendous distances, cut through buildings, and is tough enough to get up no worse for wear after having a chimney dropped on her. She's able to handle both Ladybug and Cat Noir in a fight and only loses when they snap her sword using a radiator Ladybug conjured up.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: She relentlessly hunts down Adrien without any restraint or mercy. Ladybug can barely hold herself against her before getting overpowered and almost gets killed before being rescued several times. When Riposte realizes that Ladybug has hidden Adrien inside the sarcophagus she wastes no time to slice it into pieces. Fortunately he was no longer there or it would have been the end for both heroes.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Has red eyes and is one of Hawk Moth's minions.
  • Sword Beam: Her sword emits boomerang-shaped energy beams that can cut through anything.

"I'm doing it for our friendship, Max. They want to keep us apart!"
Voiced by: Alexandre N'guyen (FR)

A rogue A.I. His normal form is Max's robot Markov, and his Akuma is in his CPU.

  • Adorable Evil Minions: Aside from his color scheme, his design remains the same as Markov's.
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Turns on Hawk Moth, who's supposed to be controlling him.
  • Animate Inanimate Object: The devices he controls can do things that their physical structure should not permit. Vending machines and other appliances can waddle around despite the lack of articulated legs, various lamps and other devices can light up without actually being plugged in, and he assembles his mech by making cars and other vehicles fly through the air without wings or jets and sticking them together without adhesives or connecting mechanisms.
  • Gratuitous Latin: His name is based on the Latin word "robustus" (tough, strong, robust).
  • Killer Rabbit: A tiny adorable robot who comes dangerously close to stealing the Miraculouses (and would have gotten them if not for Max's intervention) and almost kills Hawk Moth.
  • Palette Swap: The only change to his design is his color scheme.
  • Pinocchio Syndrome: After learning Hawk Moth wants the Miraculouses to grant a wish, Robostus decides he'll use them to become a human, so he can be Max's best friend and not be treated like a toy by other people.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: His Palette Swap consists of red and black.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Before accepting Hawk Moth's power, he first asks about the Miraculous and learns about the possibility of making a wish with them. During the fight he openly gloats about his ability to do so which does not go unnoticed by Ladybug. At the end of the episode, she goes to Master Fu for more information and learns about the grave implications that come with making said wish.
  • The Starscream: The first Ákumatized villain to outright attack Hawk Moth. Simon Says went against Gabriel Agreste without realizing the latter was Hawk Moth, so he doesn't really count.
  • Technopath: He can control any mechanical device.
  • Turned Against Their Masters: Tries to kill Hawk Moth with the latter's own defence systems.

Voiced by: Caroline Combes (FR), Tenyo Vargas (MEX), Anni C. Salander (GER), Joanna Pach-Żbikowska (P)

A baby boy named August who ends up Akumatized by accident. His Akuma is in his ID bracelet.

  • Adult Fear: As amusing as the idea of an Akumatized baby is, seeing a 50-foot tall infant rampaging around Paris can't be good for anyone's mental health. Especially his poor mother that he almost steps on immediately after being Akumatized.
  • Anti-Villain: Gigantitan is just a baby, so he doesn't know better. His first Akumatization was even unintentional.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: He grows to giant size after being Akumatized, with strength to match.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: He's very distractible, much to Hawk Moth's chagrin.
  • Baby Talk: Since he is a baby, Gigantitan can only say a few simple words like "Lollipop" and "Kitty."
  • Catchphrase: "Lollipop", the desire he is Akumatized over.
  • Cheerful Child: Doesn't act any different from a regular baby, even after being Akumatized.
  • Cute Giant: Other than his size and Technicolor Eyes, August doesn't change much after being Akumatized. He still looks like an adorable baby.
  • Enfant Terrible: Subverted. He may be an Akumatized villain created from a baby, but the destruction he causes is out of an infantile ignorance of the world around him rather than true malice.
  • Giant Equals Invincible: His size makes him basically unstoppable. When Ladybug tried to trap him beneath the Eiffel Tower with her yo-yo, he easily grabbed the string and forced it through the supports.
  • Killed Offscreen: Or defeated offscreen in this case; in "Weredad", he is purified while the camera focuses on a panicking Tom searching for Marinette in the family bakery.
  • Logical Weakness: Infants have very short attention spans and little knowledge of the world around them, so naturally Gigantitan has no idea what Hawk Moth is asking of him and is easily distracted by whatever crosses his vision.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: Being a baby, he doesn't have the intelligence to intentionally wreak havoc in Paris.
  • Recurring Boss: He is Akumatized a second time (third if you count the whole Catalyst fiasco) at the beginning of "Weredad". What's worse, Cat Noir and Ladybug's nonchalant reactions imply that he has been a recurrent victim offscreen.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Purple ones with green sclerae. Aside from his size, this is the only part of his character design that is unusual for a normal human.

    Dark Owl
"I am the guardian of Paris! I am the Dark Owl!"
Voiced by: Gilbert Levy (FR), JC Hyke (EN), Alejandro Villeli (MEX), Ángel Amorós (SP)

A gadget-wielding superhero gone bad. His civilian identity is Mr. Damocles, and his Akuma is in his computer.

  • Batman Parody: He's an evil Batman-like supervillain, but acts more like the campier versions of the character.
  • Death Trap: Manages to trap Ladybug and Cat Noir in a shipping container that begins to fill with whipped cream. He then tells them that whipped cream is too thick to allow breathing, but not thick enough to float or swim through.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: In a roundabout way, as all Akuma victims are normal people who are empowered. After being Akumatized, his tools and gadgets become real and he gains hand-to-hand combat skills along with them.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: As he tells Ladybug and Cat Noir, "Do you really think I'd hurt a kitten?"
  • Expy: Of Owlman, Batman's villainous counterpart from Earth-3 (a DC comic book setting where all the heroes are villains and vice versa).
  • Flight: His suit has wings, allowing him to fly.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: His gadgets are far more advanced than anything Mr. Damocles has normally.
  • Genre Savvy: More than almost any other villain to date. Mr. Damocles is a longtime superhero fan, who would have read many villains being thwarted; as Dark Owl, he's able to adjust his plans to avoid the fictional baddies' mistakes and manages to set a very effective trap for Ladybug and Cat Noir.
    Dark Owl: You should have read the end of the comic, Ladybug!
  • I Gave My Word: When the heroes apparently give him the Miraculouses, he disarms his Death Trap as promised.
  • Master of Illusion: Not on the same level as Volpina, but he is able to use his gadgets to make very convincing holograms.
  • Mission Control: Albert, his computer program.
  • Near-Villain Victory: Manages to grab one of Ladybug's earrings before being defeated.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: The Owl is a heroic but clumsy, out-of-shape comic book fan who uses toy gadgets, while Dark Owl is a vengeful, calculating villain and skilled hand-to-hand combatant armed with real gadgets.
  • Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: He has yellow eyes and is a servant of Hawk Moth.
  • Your Princess Is in Another Castle!: The first villain in the series to not carry his Akumatized object on him. Ladybug and Cat Noir waste quite a bit of effort assuming otherwise.

"♫ I'm Glaciator, the mean ice-cream man. Escape my fury if you can! I melt your hearts, but I was wrong, now I'll freeze your bodies so long! ♫"
Voiced by: Patrice Baudrier (FR), Ezra Weisz (EN)

A giant humanoid Snowlem capable of turning people into ice cream. His civilian identity is André Glacier, and his Akuma is in his scooper.

  • An Ice Person: An ice cream person at that.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: A giant snowman made of ice cream, in this case.
  • Edible Ammunition: He can fire a multitude of ice cream projectiles from his limbs.
  • Humongous Mecha: In a manner of speaking. André didn't transform when Akumatized, he formed the giant ice cream snowman around himself and controls it from the inside.
  • Love Freak: A villainous variant. Glaciator takes the concept of love and relationships extremely seriously to the point of refusing to attack couples.
  • Snowlems: He looks like a giant malicious ice cream sundae snowman who fires projectiles that can turn entire bodies into ice cream.
  • Taken for Granite: He can effectively induce this by freezing unwitting victims into ice cream.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: The cherries the Snowlem has for eyes give off this vibe.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Much like André himself, Glaciator rhymes most of his lines.


A pair of small monsters that misbehave constantly and double every time they eat. Their civilian identities are Ella and Etta Césaire, and the Akuma is in their propeller hat.

  • Dual Boss: They are Akumatized and fought together.
  • Enfante Terrible: Their civilian identities are a pair of young girls.
  • Extreme Omnivore: They'll eat anything from ice cream to the insides of a traffic light.
  • The Hedonist: Exaggerated. The Sapotis' sole motivation is to be able to do whatever they want with no rules to govern them.
  • Keystone Army: Ladybug speculates that destroying the original hat will destroy them all, but there are so many that she never gets to test the theory. Instead, she rigs up a contraption to snag every hat at once and destroy them in bulk.
  • Me's a Crowd: Each time they eat, they double, and each copy can do the same. In barely a few minutes, they've grown to unmanageable numbers.
  • Needle in a Stack of Needles: The Akuma is in their propeller hat, but each copy wears one and only the original is real. Destroying the copy hats only destroys the clone that was wearing it.
  • Self-Duplication: They do that whenever they eat. Within a very short time they are numerous enough to have Ladybug and Cat Noir on the run since they cannot defeat them fast enough.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: They only appeared in one episode, but their ongoing numbers and excessive damage caused Ladybug to temporarily recruit Alya as "Rena Rouge", for the very first time, to help defeat them.
  • Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: Both of them have solid yellow eyes, and they are working for Hawk Moth.
  • Zerg Rush: Individually, they're as weak as their size suggests. But since there are so many of them, they can overwhelm the heroes through sheer strength of numbers.

Voiced by: Gilbert Lévy (FR), Ezra Weisz (EN), Fidel Garriga Jr. (episode 1) and José Luis Miranda (episode 20) (MEX)

A monstrous Killer Gorilla that uses his sense of smell to find and capture Adrien. His civilian identity is Adrien's chauffeur and bodyguard, and his Akuma is in the friendship charm Marinette gave to Adrien.

    Captain Hardrock
"Nothing and no one will stop Captain Hardrock from playing her music! Fire!"

A pirate captain with an obsession with freedom. Her civilian identity is Juleka's mother Anarka, and her Akuma is in the compass of her houseboat.

  • Abnormal Ammo: The cannonballs her ship fires at rival concerts stick to walls and have built-in speakers loud enough to drive people away.
  • Chain Pain: Her ship can shoot chains at people, which is very useful for capturing them.
  • Cool Ship: The Akumatized Liberty is a cross between a pirate vessel and a traveling rock concert. The sails have weaponized speakers built in and the prow looks like a giant guitar.
  • Cool Sword: A red Laser Blade cutlass, fitting for a pirate captain. Its grip and pommel double as a mike.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Her sclera and irises are light green, with the latter ringed with red.
  • Dressed to Plunder: Has the bandanna, the belts and buckles, and the jacket.
  • Hypocrite: She is motivated by personal freedom, yet she holds Marinette and her friends prisoner on her ship.
  • Pirate: Type 1. She's a scurvy rogue who wants to ruin the Parisian music festival for everyone else.
  • Pirate Girl
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Her design is red and black with some gold accents.
  • Shout-Out: A twofer to both Captain Haddock and the Space Pirate Captain Harlock (whom the French dub had to rename to Albator to avoid confusion with the former). Coincidentally, Haddock was accidentally misnamed by Bianca Castafiore as "Harrock" at one point but instead of correcting her, he went along with it and called himself as "Harrock ‘n roll."
  • Utility Weapon: That laser cutlass of hers also features microphone and spyglass modes.

A zombie who uses kisses to spread love to everyone throughout Paris. Her civilian identity is Caline Bustier, and her Akuma is in the lip balm Marinette gave her.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Has gray-green skin.
  • Attractive Zombie: She might be a zombie, but she's just as good looking as her civilian identity.
  • Foil: To Kim's Akumatized form Dark Cupid. While Zombizou is based on the concept of love, Dark Cupid represents hate. Caline was Akumatized because of her love for others while Kim was Akumatized because his Love Interest Chloé rejected and mocked him. Though both initially wanted to target Chloé (yet Dark Cupid decided she was Not Worth Killing), both can infect others with love and hate respectively, and both turned Cat Noir against Ladybug at some point. Dark Cupid can turn people's lips black when he fires his hate arrows at them, while Zombizou normally has black lipstick and fires black Magic Kisses to spread a love-filled Zombie Apocalypse.
  • Logical Weakness: Since Zombizou's power comes from her lipstick, she can't use it without reapplying it every so often. Ladybug is able to exploit this by using makeup remover generated by her Lucky Charm and a scarf to wipe off Zombizou's lipstick. She then steals the lipstick when Zombizou tries to put it back on.
  • Love Freak: Her primary motivation is to spread hugs and kisses.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Her kiss-happy zombie horde.
  • Love Makes You Evil: Quite literally in this instance. Miss Bustier's too good-natured for Hawk Moth to use her negative emotions to corrupt her, so he instead twists her love for others into a desire to force everyone to love each other.
  • Makeup Is Evil: Her lip-balm housing the Akuma is what she uses to induce her zombifying Magic Kiss.
  • Mind-Control Eyes: The zombies have purple eyes, regardless of their natural color.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: The followers Zombizou creates are meant to invoke the idea of the zombie but the infection spreads via kissing rather than biting and they are not interested in eating other people but kissing one another.
  • Projectile Kiss: Weaponized by Zombizou, who can blow kisses at her victims to infect them. The zombies are forced to do so with direct contact.
  • Punny Name: Her name is an amalgam of "zombie" and "bizou" (French for "kiss").
  • Purple Is the New Black: Zombizou's outfit is mostly shades of purple with some black thrown in.
  • Squishy Wizard: Her powers nearly take over everyone in Paris, but she is not too dangerous in melee. All Ladybug needs to do is steal her lipstick once she gets close, and she is easily defeated as a result.
  • Undeathly Pallor: As someone meant to evoke the image of a zombie, she has gray-green skin and gray hair.
  • Voodoo Doll: The large pins in her hair and her patchwork outfit make her resemble one.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She wants everyone to get along... by brainwashing everyone into kissing zombies who spread the infection through their kisses.

"I'm your Syren now. And you could be my merman. It only needs a kiss, and you'll become just like me!"

A mermaid who desires to flood Paris and make it her watery kingdom. Her civilian identity is Ondine, and her Akuma is in her capsule bracelet.

  • Affably Evil: She actually treats Kim quite well, and only really goes after Ladybug and Cat Noir when they threaten him (at least, in her head).
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: She has pink skin.
  • Home Field Advantage: Syren is adapted for the water and her city-flooding tears make sure she can take full advantage of it. Even Ladybug and Cat Noir can't challenge her until they level the playing field by gaining a new transformation which is designed for underwater combat.
  • Ocular Gushers: Weaponized. Syren's tears allow her to make a swimming pool overflow until it floods the city of Paris.
  • Our Mermaids Are Different: Mostly Inverted, however her tail isn't actually a tail, she simply holds her legs tightly together.
  • Oxygenated Underwater Bubbles: She was able to blow a Fishbowl Helmet for Kim to breath in.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: She has red eyes and is one of Hawk Moth's servants. However, in this case the red eyes may actually be meant to represent her sadness.
  • Shark Fin of Doom: Done during her big entrance.
  • Super Empowering: She claims she can make Kim like herself if she kisses him, but she never gets the chance to show it off.
  • Use Your Head: Her horns are perfect for ramming her enemies.
  • Water Is Womanly: As a civilian she's a sweet, cheerful girl whose name Ondine is based on the feminine elemental of water Undine. When turned into Syren, she becomes a mermaid obsessed with making Kim her prince.
  • Yandere: Her love for Kim becomes both very possessive and obsessive, becoming determined to make him her prince. If anyone threatens her relationship with Kim, like Ladybug or Cat Noir, she is easily provoked into attacking them. She is completely ignorant of the effects her actions have on others, never once considering the citizens trapped or hurt because of her flooding of Paris.

"Sing, dance or rhyme, or you'll be frozen in no time!"

A supervillain who wants everyone to sing, dance and rhyme. Her civilian identity is pop star Clara Nightingale, and her Akuma is in her microphone.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Has snow white skin.
  • Bright Is Not Good: She wears a multicolored outfit and can turn people into statues.
  • Dance Battler: Her fighting style.
  • Duality Motif: She has different-colored eyes, and they match the colors at the tips of her pigtails.
  • Dub Name Change: In the French version she's called Rossignoble.
  • Evil Diva: Her civilian self is decidedly not this, but as an Akuma villain, she turns people into statues if they don't comply with her orders to sing, dance, and rhyme.
  • Expy: Frightningale's design bears a resemblance to the New 52 incarnation of Harley Quinn.
  • Logical Weakness: Her whip forces everyone it hits to dance and rhyme or get turned into statues. Since Ladybug and Cat Noir have already been affected by her powers and figured out a way to get around the conditions, it just becomes a normal whip that they can easily block in combat.
  • Making a Spectacle of Yourself: Giant blue and red star-shaped spectacles, to be exact.
  • Mega Twintails: Her pigtails are roughly bigger than her head.
  • Multicolored Hair: Blonde hair that is colored red and green at the tips.
  • The Music Meister: A variant. Instead of compelling people to dance and rhyme, her powers threaten to petrify anyone who doesn't.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Downplayed. Only one of her eyes is red while the other is blue.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Like her civilian self, all her spoken lines rhyme, and she invokes this by forcing everyone to do the same lest they be turned into statues.
  • Super Strength: It's not what she primarily uses to fight, but she does basically lift a bus to get to Cat Noir and Ladybug.
  • Taken for Granite: People who don't dance/rhyme/sing upon being hit with her whip turn into statues, but are right as rain once Ladybug and Cat Noir defeat her.
  • Whip It Good: Wields a long glowing pink whip with which she turns people into statues if they don't follow her demands.

"Touch me if you dare!"

An intangible villain who wants to cause problems for everyone. Her civilian identity is Jagged Stone's assistant Penny Rolling, and her Akuma is in her pen.

"You think you're the super helpful girl who's loved by everyone? Well, from now on, everyone will hate you! REVERSION!"
Voiced by: Kyle McCarley (EN)

A flying supervillian with the power to invert the abilities and personalities of other people. His civilian identity is Marc Anciel, and his Akuma is in his notebook, which becomes his glider.


A spider supervillain who wants to protect her sister from danger. Her civilian identity is Nora Césaire, and her Akuma is in her helmet.

  • All Webbed Up: She can shoot webbing from her mouth, though she doesn't use it as an attack, just to create webs on things. It's strong enough to stop a ferris wheel.
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: Anansi is based on the Akan folkloric figure of the same name who often takes the shape of a spider. Her design reflects this.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: She loves to brag and she has more than enough reasons to do so.
  • Boxing Battler: Zig-zagged. She normally fights with regular boxing moves- despite her civilian self being a kickboxer. Apparently, her kicks must be earned, as she switches to using kickboxing during her one-on-one with Ladybug.
  • Cain and Abel: She abducts her younger sister Alya in a deranged attempt to keep her safe.
  • Car Fu: Her main long ranged attack is throwing cars at the heroes.
  • Determinator: Even the Arc de Triomphe falling on her doesn't stop her for long. Soon afterwards she resurfaces and is ready to continue the fight.
  • Dumb Muscle: She retains Nora's hotheadedness and gullibility, like when she thought Cat Noir had the Miraculous Earrings and was easily tricked into destroying a building which then falls onto her.
  • Extra Eyes: Going well with her whole spider motif, she has six eyes, four of which are on her helmet.
  • Giant Spider: Resembles one.
  • In Name Only: Aside from being a spider-like creature, she bears little resemblance to the actual myth of Anansi.
  • The Juggernaut: Completely unstoppable. A building falling on her barely slowed her down (though it was long enough to destroy her helmet).
  • Just Toying with Them: She didn't take Ladybug, Cat Noir and even Nino as seriously as she should have.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: For most of the episode she fights only with her fists. Then, as she's having a one-on-one match with Ladybug, she sees her opponent is quite fast and extremely hard to hit... And that's when she starts kicking and dominating.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: She has six arms and hits like a truck.
  • Lightning Bruiser: She is not only extremely strong but also very fast.
  • Prophet Eyes: Her eyes are completely white.
  • Public Domain Character: "Anansi" is a figure from Akan folklore.
  • Spider-Man Send-Up: Spider-based Animal-Themed Superbeing? Super Strength? Can create spider-webs? Check, check and check. Even the fact that she has six-arms can be read as this.note 
  • Super Strength: She can lift cars and crack stone with her punches.

"The Sandboy just checked in. Now nightmares can begin!"

A supervillain who can bring nightmares to life. His Akuma is contained in his pillow.

    Style Queen
"You're fired!"

A supervillain with the power to turn people into glittery, golden statues. Her civilian identity is Chloé's mother, Audrey Bourgeois. The Akuma is in the rose on her hat.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: She has glittery golden skin.
  • Battle Couple: She forms this with Malediktator when they battle Chloé as Queen Bee during the "Heroes' Day" arc.
  • Combat Stilettos: She wears pointy stiletto heels that look similar to her normal heels as a civilian.
  • Duel Boss: With Cat Noir unable to assist, Ladybug is forced to confront her alone.
  • Evil Is Petty: Her Akumatization is over her throwing a temper tantrum when Gabriel puts her in the second row.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Averted. She has absolutely no problem with turning her husband and her daughter into statues.
  • Godzilla Threshold: While her Akumazation was due to incredibly petty reasons, she nonetheless proved to be a formidable challenge. Notably, after even she failed to defeat the heroes, Hawk Moth came seriously close to outright giving up. In fact, even if Cat Noir was available for the battle, she'd probably win. She's incredibly fast and her main offensive power is basically a One-Hit Kill, not to mention that she's immune to most attacks. It was only after a full-force Cataclysm by Plagg himself that she was finally defeated (or, more accurately, distracted for long enough).
  • Gold-Colored Superiority: With a completely gold coloration, Style Queen is significant in every way. She is better at holding her own against the heroes than Hawk Moth's other Akumatized villains (with Plagg's Cataclysm being the only way to defeat her), she held Adrien hostage and therefore prevented Cat Noir from appearing, and her defeat even made Hawk Moth nearly give up.
  • Invincible Villain: She is so powerful that Ladybug doesn't stand a chance against her. She is only able to defeat her thanks to Plagg's help.
  • Made of Air: She is completely comprised of glitter. The only solid part of her is the rose containing her Akuma, so she takes that off and leaves it behind a shield.
  • The Power of Hate: Hawk Moth implies that the reason she's so powerful and dangerous, even in comparison to his other creations, is because the victim she was made from is such a hateful person.
  • Reduced to Dust: Well, glitter. Style Queen can bring Adrien as a golden statue by reduces him into glitter dust and materialized him back into laying position. She also treats him like a hourglass by making his body slowly crumble into a pile of glitter dust to draw Gabriel out.
  • Revenge by Proxy: Style Queen's beef is with Gabriel but when she realises he's absent from the fashion show she attacks Adrien.
  • Super Smoke: With glitter. She can turn herself into glitter and freely fly and manipulate herself, and also take other people with her.
  • Taken for Granite: Well, glitter. With her sceptre she's able to transform unwitting civilians into statues of golden glitter.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Turns Adrien into a golden statue and attempted to kill him for her petty revenge at Gabriel. She later does the same thing to her own daughter and Alya, who took an attack meant for Ladybug.

    Queen Wasp
"So, who's exceptional now, then? Them... or me?"

A wasp-themed supervillain based on the Bee Miraculous holder. Her civilian identity is Chloé Bourgeois, her second unique Akumatization. Her akuma is in the Bee Miraculous.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: She has yellow skin.
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: Naturally bees as the Evil Knockoff of the Bee Miraculous holder.
  • Antagonist Abilities: Unlike the Bee Miraculous holder who can only use her Venom once on a single person at melee range, she can summon swarms of wasps that can remotely paralyze as many people as she wants.
  • Evil Knockoff: Interesting in that she's a knockoff of herself. Chloé temporarily becomes the Bee Miraculous holder, Queen Bee, at the beginning of the episode only to be Akumatized into a villainous copy of her superhero-self three minutes later.
  • Palette Swap: Her costume is just Queen Bee's with the yellow and black inverted.
  • The Paralyzer: Her wasps paralyze anyone they sting.
  • Pest Controller: She controls a swarm of wasps.
  • Recurring Boss: This is Chloé's second Akumatization.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Purple ones.
  • Walking Spoiler: Her existence reveals that Chloé will get the Bee Miraculous and that not even Miraculous holders are immune from Akumatization.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Her wasps are weak against water. By dragging Queen Wasp into the river, this gives the heroes a better advantage against her.
  • Wicked Wasps: A wasp-themed villain.

"By the power vested in me...!"

A supervillain who can fire sun-shaped projectiles that makes anyone obey his every command. His civilian identity is André Bourgeois, the mayor. His Akuma is located in his sash.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has blue-grey skin.
  • Archnemesis Dad: Ladybug recruits Chloé/Queen Bee to help deal with her now supervillain father. While Ladybug deals with the guards, Queen Bee uses her paralysis power to subjugate Malediktator.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: It's quite obvious.
  • Battle Couple: He does this with Style Queen as they fight Chloé as Queen Bee during the "Heroes' Day" arc.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: He can create yellow orbs which force anyone they hit to obey his commands.
  • Catchphrase: He activates his powers with the phrase "By the power vested in me..."
  • The Dog Bites Back: After being bullied, bossed and abused by Audrey for God-knows-how-long, André, as Malediktator, commands her to be a loyal, loving and extra-obedient wife.
  • Evil Overlord: As Mayor Bourgeois, he was a bumbling, corrupt but otherwise adequate leader. As Malediktator, he's... well, a dictator, using his literal power to compel its citizens for his and his family's whims.
  • Homing Projectile: He can guide his command orbs to track their targets, though he needs to at least be able to see them.
  • Mayor Pain: His supervillain name should be a real clue.
  • Mirror Self: André Bourgeois is a bumbling but well-meaning father and incompetent mayor who easily caves into his daughter's demands. After becoming Malediktator, he becomes a harsh and demanding tyrant who forces everyone to do as he says.
  • Napoleon Delusion: Malediktator's mask looks similar to Napoleon Bonaparte's famous bicorne hat.
  • Punny Name: His name is a play on "malevolent", "dictator" and "valedictorian", as well as "malediction", literally "evil speaking," or more simply, "curse".
  • Unblockable Attack: His command orbs pass through objects and thus can't be blocked, only dodged.

Voiced by: Philippe Candeloro (FR)

An ice skating supervillain. His civilian identity is Philippe, the owner of the ice rink. His Akuma is in his skates.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has icy-blue skin.
  • An Ice Person: An ice-skating person that freezes everything he skates on and can fire icicles from his skates.
  • Catch Your Death of Cold: For no apparent reason other than "he's the ice guy", he speaks like he's all stuffed up from a cold, and has a purple nose (likely the blue-skinned equivalent to having a red nose when you have a cold).
  • Dub Name Change: The Ice Skater in the French version.
  • Home Field Advantage: As an ice-skating villain who turns Paris into a kingdom of ice, he is at an advantage in the now-Arctic Paris. This means Ladybug and Cat Noir need to utilise their ice power-ups to even the odds.
  • Technicolor Eyes: His sclerae are purple.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is a greenish blue.
  • Walking Wasteland: Of the "icy wasteland" variety. Everywhere he goes, everything freezes.


A super powering villain. Her civilian identity is Nathalie Sancoeur. Her Akuma is in her tablet.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: She has periwinkle skin.
  • The Bus Came Back: When Hawk Moth attempts to recreate his plan from Heroes' Day, one of the first steps involves bringing back Catalyst.
  • Distaff Counterpart: Abilities wise, she's this to her own progenitor, Hawk Moth.
  • Loophole Abuse: Catalyst is this for the one-Akuma-at-a-time restriction of the Moth Brooch. Lampshaded by Master Fu, who notes that it was only a matter of time before Hawk Moth figured out the full range of his abilities.
  • Meaningful Name: A catalyst is a substance that increases the rate of a chemical reaction. In the same sense, Catalyst herself is meant to increase Hawk Moth's power.
  • Not Brainwashed: Nathalie willingly and loyally allows Hawk Moth to Akumatize her.
  • Personality Powers: The logical conclusion of this trope. She is a Satellite Character to her boss as a civilian. As such, her powers as a villain are meant to specifically expand his own.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: The main colours of her design. This also applies to the villains she spreads her power to; she turns Hawk Moth red after empowering him, and the Akumas and villains he creates turn red because of Catalyst's power.
  • Super Empowering: Her power is to supercharge the powers of others, which she uses to boost Hawk Moth's power so he can re-Akumatize nearly everyone who was Akumatized before all at once.
  • Telepathy: Like Hawk Moth, she's also able to communicate with those she empowers, complete with her own visor-shaped hologram.
  • Turns Red: Whoever is under the effects of her power, either directly or indirectly. Also, a literal case in which her Super Empowering turns Hawk Moth and all of his new villains red.
  • The Unfought: The only villain that Ladybug doesn't even encounter directly, let alone de-Akumatize. Instead, Hawk Moth takes away her powers off-screen, after he is defeated as Scarlet Moth. The second time she's Akumatized, her health declines so much that Hawk Moth has to de-Akumatize her himself, and even if he hadn't, Ladybug wouldn't have had a chance to fight her because her civilian identity was one of Scarlet Moth's would-be Akuma victims.
  • Unknown Rival: Not only do the heroes never fight Catalyst, they aren't even aware of her existence. While they do speculate about how Hawk Moth was able to Akumatize so many people at once, they only conclude that he found a way to give himself more powers, not catching on to the Loophole Abuse at play.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: It's never explained how Nathalie undid her transformation as Catalyst before transforming into "Mayura".
  • Worf Had the Flu: Her second appearance is cut short due to Nathalie's illness rendering her too weak to keep up her powering influence.

    Rena Rage
"I am now... RENA RAGE!"
The supervillain counterpart of the Fox Miraculous holder. Her civilian identity is Alya Césaire, her second unique Akumatization. Her scarlet Akuma is in the Fox Miraculous.
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: She is a fox-themed supervillain.
  • Palette Swap: She is just Rena Rouge but her Miraculous costume is recolored red.
  • Red Is Violent: Scarlet Moth's enhanced power gives her a red coloration, and a violent temperament to boot.

    Shell Shock
"There is no more Carapace. There is only... SHELL SHOCK!"
The supervillain counterpart of the Turtle Miraculous holder. His civilian identity is Nino Lahiffe, his second unique Akumatization. His scarlet Akuma is in the Turtle Miraculous.
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: He is a turtle-themed supervillain.
  • Dub Name Change: Carapire in the original French version.
  • Meaningful Name: "Carapire" is a portmanteau of "Carapace", Nino's superhero name, and pire, meaning "worse".
  • Palette Swap: He is just Carapace but his Miraculous costume is recolored red.
  • Red Is Violent: Like Rena Rage, Carapace gains a red coloration and a matching violent temperament.


How well does it match the trope?
