    Truth 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mlb_401___truth___header_image.png

A masked fiend with the power to uncover any truth and is deadset on finding out Marinette's secrets. His civilian identity is Luka, which is also his second Akumatization and second unique form, and his akuma is in a guitar pick Marinette gave him as a present.


  • Cannot Tell a Lie: His power forces people to answer any question truthfully. This presents a problem for Ladybug, as she has been affected by that power and can be forced to reveal her secret if she allows herself to speak. Cat Noir gets around this by interrupting to ask a question to which "Lucky Charm" is the answer.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: By itself, his power has no practical use in combat. Making people blurt out the truth does very little to stop them otherwise. This is why Shadow Moth sends Light Eye along, so Truth will have a means of paralyzing his enemies. Shadow Moth also specifies that he wants to know the secret identities of the heroes, as opposed to just taking their Miraculous, so he's well aware of the limitations in this case.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: His familiar is used to paralyze him after Cat Noir drives it berserk using Cataclysm.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: His reason for finding out Marinette's secrets stems from her refusal to explain why she keeps vanishing during their dates. Unfortunately, Shadow Moth tarnishes this intention by taking his truth finding desire Up to Eleven.
  • Logical Weakness: His power makes someone have to tell the truth to questions asked by anyone, not just him. Thus Cat Noir constantly thwarts him attempting to get Ladybug to reveal her identity by cutting him off and and finishing his question to ask about something else.
  • Marked Change: Anyone affected by his power gains white lips.
  • Third Eye: His truth beams are fired from the third eye on his head.
  • Villains Never Lie: Invoked when Shadow Moth starts getting fed up with him going off to learn things unrelated to Ladybug and Cat Noir, first about Jagged Stone being his father and then why Marinette is lying to him. Truth insists that the second one is the last, and Shadow Moth can trust him because he never lies.

    Lies 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mlb_402___lies___header_image.png

A ghostly girl who hates dishonesty and wants to punish liars. Her civilian identity is Kagami Tsurugi, which is also her fourth Akumatization and third unique form. Her akuma is in the lucky charm that Marinette gave to Adrien.


  • Achilles' Heel: Her powers paralyze anyone that lies to her, which means things that don't or can't lie are unaffected. Ladybug uses this to fly a drone within her light sphere as a lure for Fang the crocodile, who then bites off the akuma trying to grab some cake picked up by the drone.
  • Advancing Wall of Doom: Her power creates an expanding dome of white light that paralyzes anyone who lies to her.
  • Breaking Old Trends: This is Kagami's first akumatization that isn't based on Japanese culture.
  • Light Is Not Good: She's a supervillain that can create a paralyzing wall of light.
  • Living Lie Detector: Her powers make her one of these.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: She doesn't directly fight the heroes as her wall of light makes it impossible to confront her head on.
  • The Paralyzer: Any dishonest person who touches her wall of light will be immobilized.
  • Visible Invisibility: She has a transparent appearance that gives the impression that she's invisible but Ladybug is able to see her using her drone.

    Gang of Secrets 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gangu.png

A quintet of supervillains consisting of Lady WiFi (Alya Césaire), Timebreaker (Alix Kubdel), Reflekta (Juleka Couffaine), Princess Fragrance (Rose Lavillant), and Horrificator (Mylène Haprèle). They are hellbent on uncovering Marinette's secrets so they can repair their friendship with her. Their akuma is in the sacred friendship bracelet they made for Marinette.

For more information about each of them, go here.


Tropes applying to them collectively:

  • Amazon Brigade: They are essentially a Legion of Doom made up of the akumatized incarnations of Marinette's many girl-friends.
  • Combination Attack: Reflekta and Princess Fragrance use their powers on an unsuspecting group of civilians in order to create an army of obedient Reflekta clones to help them with their search.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: They know that Marinette is hiding something from them and that she's in emotional distress, but when they attempt to talk to her about it Marinette angrily sends them away. The ensuing heartbreak from their broken friendship gets them akumatized.
  • Loophole Abuse: Like the Punisher Trio, Shadow Moth is able to exploit a shared emotional state through a single object to akumatize all five at once.
  • Needle in a Stack of Needles: With five villains and only one akuma between them, Ladybug has no idea which is holding the akuma, forcing her to isolate Lady WiFi and get her to reveal its location.
  • Shoot the Medic First: Ladybug's plan hinges on Cat Noir keeping Timebreaker busy so she won't go back in time and undo everything.
  • Stupid Evil: They only care about finding Marinette's secrets. So when (an illusion of) Marinette appears just as Reflekta, Princess Fragrance, Timebreaker, and Horrificator have managed to subdue Cat Noir and are moments away from claiming his Miraculous, they abandon him to chase after her, completely ignoring Shadow Moth's yelling at them to stop.
  • Villain Team-Up: Five of Marinette's closest friends who were originally akumatized for separate reasons. Now that they have a common problem and single akumatized object, they all team up to track Marinette down and figure out her secrets.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: While each of the villains were originally made from selfish, though understandable feelings, this time all they want is to find out why Marinette is shutting them out so that they can be friends with her again. Being akumatized villains however, their methods are highly destructive.

    Furious Fu 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ew8chqpwgamkoev.jpeg
Voiced by: Gilbert Levy (FR), Paul St. Peter (EN), Oscar Rangel (MEX), Sa'ar Badishi/סער בדישי (HEB), Lajos Csuha (HUN), Mário Monjardim and Júlio Chaves (BP season 1 and season 2 onwards, respectively), Ambrogio Colombo (ITA), Michael Pan (GER), Branislav Platiša (SER)

A demonic painter who is enraged at Su-Han for attacking him and Marianne. His civilian identity is Fu, former guardian of the Miraculous, and his akuma is in his paintbrush.


  • Culture Equals Costume: Fu is a Chinese man and he's dressed as a Shaolin warrior when he's akumatized.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He still treats Marianne with kindness and seeks revenge against Su-Han on her behalf.
  • Evil Is Bigger: Fu is a Miniature Senior Citizen that barely reaches Marinette's shoulder (and Marinette isn't exactly very tall) with a noticeable hunch. When Akumatized, he's almost twice Marinette's height with his back completely straight.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: As a brawler, he has the martial arts skill, Super Strength and durability (as well as an impressive muscle-frame) that allows him to fight Ladybug and Cat Noir hand-to-hand. Add on his Paper Talismans that can do virtually anything and you have a particularly effective villain.
  • Paper Talisman: Furious Fu's power allows him to write concepts on a paper talisman which then brings those concepts into reality.
  • Scatterbrained Senior: Even akumatized, he still has shades of Fu's amnesia-induced ditziness. He mistakes Cat Noir for a wingless bat and has to be told multiple times exactly which objects he needs to take from Ladybug and Cat Noir.
  • Strong and Skilled: He not only possesses the enhanced physical capabilities and powers of an akuma, but the anti-Miraculous martial arts of a Guardian. This makes it impossible for Ladybug and Cat Noir to defeat him head on.
  • Superpower Lottery: His ability to write any concept into reality basically grants him any power he wants. He can track people, summon lightning, teleport, turn people into statues and copy Ladybug's Lucky Charm vision.
  • When Elders Attack: One of the oldest villains to be shown and is a deadly foe.

    Sole Crusher 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sole_crusher_square.png

A golden villainess who bears a striking resemblance to Chloé Bourgeois, bent on breaking down the people who walked all over her. Her civilian identity is Zoé Lee, and the akuma is in her discarded shoes.


  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Sole Crusher continuously grows throughout her debut episode, eventually becoming bigger than the Le Grand Paris hotel.
  • Cain and Abel: The primary target of her ire is her maternal half-sister Chloé.
  • Dub Name Change: Her French name is "Pirkell"note .
  • Gold-Colored Superiority: Her color scheme is entirely gold.
  • Horned Humanoid: She has a pair of large, twisted horns that sprout from her head.
  • Kick Chick: Sole Crusher attacks by kicking her opponents with her jeweled high heels, until she grows so large that she can simply step on them.
  • Make My Monster Grow: She grows in size when she absorbs people.
  • Meaningful Name: Her akumatized identity is a pun and combination of the noun "sole", the bottom part of a shoe, and the saying "soul crusher", used to describe someone who is cruel and discouraging.
  • One-Hit Kill: She absorbs anyone that she kicks or touches with her shoes, making her grow bigger.
  • Pet the Dog: Because Marinette was kind to her, she just carries her around rather than absorbing her, and is almost willing to stand down when she tries to reason with her. Even after continuing her rampage, she opts to continue targeting Chloé instead of Marinette's friends.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She's basically a gold-colored clone of her half-sister Chloé.

    Queen Banana 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mlb_408___queen_banana___header_image.png
"Banana Boom Boom! Action!"

A fruity femme fatale who's bananas over the spotlight. Accompanied by a giant yellow gorilla sentimonster, she has the power to transform her enemies into bananas. Her civilian identity is Chloé Bourgeois, making this her fourth unique akumatized identity. The akuma is in her banana hair clip.


  • Amazing Technicolor Population: She has yellow skin, although it's not as bright as Queen Wasp or Miracle Queen's.
  • Berserk Button: She has two: her sister, with her hatred for Zoé cranked Up to Eleven, and being denied what she believes is rightfully hers.
    • She was akumatizated because the students took back the mini-film she hijacked to become her personal fantasy, and she wants revenge for them "ruining [her] film", particularly Zoé for having the lead role that the latter had earned in the first place.
    • When she learns there is a new Bee Miraculous, Vesperia, she's so enraged she drops a hostage Ladybug to target the "knock-off" Queen Bee. Irony is, Zoé is actually Vesperia without Chloé even knowing it.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: She's a banana-themed supervillain with an Atrocious Alias, but nonetheless is still a dangerous supervillain nonetheless who required Ladybug calling upon a new Bee-themed hero to beat.
  • Cain and Abel: She's the Cain to her sister Zoé's Abel. Chloé was furious when she was denied the starring role in her classmate's amateur film, learning that the role was instead given to her sister. Fittingly, she's the Villain of the Week in the same episode her sister becomes the new Bee Miraculous holder
  • Cool Car: Her limousine is turned into a banana-themed dune buggy that can fly and shoot lasers that turn people into bananas.
  • Dirty Coward: Along with lying about her intentions and being laser-happy, she immediately runs away from the fight when her banana gun gets clogged.
  • Expy: Her entire design is heavily based on her former identity as Queen Bee.
  • I Lied: After Zoé reveals herself and demands that she stop her rampage of Paris, Queen Banana smugly promises to do so. Only to shoot another civilian instantly.
  • It's All About Me: Her akumatization was prompted when she was denied the spotlight in an amateur movie her classmates were shooting.
  • It's Personal: After turning her classmates and the adults into fruit, Queen Banana decides to hunt her sister and declares that she'll turn all of Paris into bananas unless Zoé turns herself in.
  • Not Brainwashed: Implied. Based on how she requests specific powers and remembering Vesperia after she changes back, it's implied Chloé willingly accepted Shadow Moth's akumatization.
  • One-Hit Kill: She has the power to instantly turn her targets into bananas with her ray gun.
  • Shoulders of Doom: Her dress has very prominent spikes on the shoulders.
  • Superpower Lottery: As Ladybug puts it, "Shadow Moth was very generous" when he akumatized her. Not only is her power a One-Hit Kill, she also has her own flying car and a giant gorilla sentimonster, both of which also have the same powers as her. It notably takes two Cataclysms and a third hero to stop her, simply because having three sources of the same power allows her to keep going after the first two are destroyed.

    Crocoduel 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crocoduel___header_image.png

A feuding duo of musician supervillains consisting of Guitar Villain (Jagged Stone) and Captain Hardrock (Anarka Couffaine). Their akuma is contained in a broken record the two were fighting over when they were akumatized.

For more information about Guitar Villain, go here, and for more information on Captain Hardrock, go here.


Tropes applying to them collectively:

  • Archnemesis Dad / Evil Matriarch: Both of them are akumatized villains who end up fighting their daughter Juleka who transforms into the Miraculous Hero Purple Tigress.
  • Dismantled MacGuffin: Jagged and Anarka break the Crocoduo record as the akuma possesses it. Rather than splitting the akuma, however, this renders breaking either half alone useless. To free the akuma, the record has to be put back together and destroyed as a single object.
  • Evil vs. Evil: Due to the reason they were akumatized, they fight each other more often than they do the heroes. When they do fight the heroes, they're competing for who gets the miraculouses.
  • Home Field Advantage: Thanks to both villains having a flying mode of transportation (Captain Hardrock with her ship and Guitar Villain with his dragon), the heroes have a harder time fighting them as Crocoduel can simply fly to the heavens and go beyond their reach. This proves to be dangerous as the attacks they throw at each other end up landing all over Paris placing civilian lives in grave danger.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: As much as they can't stand each other, they can't stand Ladybug and Cat Noir defeating the other even more. They even decide to ignore the heroes so they can continue their fight in the skies.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: The pair can barely tolerate each other and thus only begrudgingly work together when their attention is drawn away from each other.
  • We ARE Struggling Together: Both villains are incredibly powerful in their own right, and together are nearly unstoppable, but their personal issues cause them to fight each other more than the heroes.

    Rocketear 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tearjerker_90.png

A heartbroken boy who desires revenge against Cat Noir under suspicion of trying to steal his girlfriend's heart. His civilian identity is Nino Lahiffe, which is his fourth akumatization and fourth unique form. The akuma is hidden in his glasses.


  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has a sky blue skin color.
  • Breaking Old Trends: Unlike many Akumatized villains before him, Rocketear doesn't really bother trying to force people to call him by his new name.
  • Cool Shades: He wears a light blue visor, which is where the akuma is hidden.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: His whole MO involves skinning the cat for supposedly swooning Alya from him.
  • Goggles Do Something Unusual: Technically his goggles are the source of his highly destructive tears.
  • It's Personal: Thanks to a million misunderstandings between Cat Noir and Alya, his beef is with Cat Noir and only him. Notably, he doesn't hurt anybody other than him.
  • Making a Splash: He has a water motif to him, being able to control tears that act more like rockets.
  • Pet the Dog: Unlike most Akumatized villains who are irrationally angry and attack everyone in their path and beyond any form of discussion, Rocketear is quite reasonable. He refuses to harm Adrien, the class or anyone other than his main target Cat Noir, and when Ladybug offers him proof that the whole thing was a misunderstanding, he not only hears her out but believes her and rejects the powers he was given to turn back to normal. He notably doesn't object to people calling him his actual name either while most villains insist they are called by their new name.
  • Recurring Element: This is Nino's second akumatization with a water-themed attack.
  • Swiss Army Tears: His main mode of attack has him wiping his tears and flicking them as explosive projectiles, striking with enough force to blow up part of a building or send Cat Noir flying.

    Wishmaker 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wishmaker___header_image.png
"Live your childhood dream!"

A supervillain with the ability to make people's childhood dreams a reality. His civilian identity is TV Personality Alec Cataldi, and his akuma is stored in his microphone/staff.


  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has dark gray skin.
  • Anti-Villain: He wants to make people happy by making them live their childhood dreams, but he's forcing it on them against their will, and they're causing a lot of chaos in the process.
  • Bald of Evil: Alec's head is shaven, and as Wishmaker, he's got a skullcap that emphasizes it.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Played with; everyone he transforms is genuinely happy, because they're transformed into what they've wanted to be since childhood and entranced to live the dream. Unfortunately it leads to a lot of chaos when they mindlessly act out their fantasies, especially for people like Jagged Stone who becomes a crocodile but doesn't automatically learn how to swim.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Making people live their childhood dreams seems harmless enough, until you realize they are compelled to do so and none of the victims wear masks. If the heroes are hit by his power, their identities become open knowledge and they have no means of fighting back.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: His power doesn't just turn people into their childhood dream, it forces them to live it out to the exclusion of all else.
  • Break Them by Talking: He successfully talks Cat Noir into letting himself be hit by playing on his desire to remember his childhood dream.
  • Catchphrase: "Live your childhood dream!"
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Similar to Truth, his power is more suited to unmasking the heroes than actually defeating them, and he doesn't have the benefit of a sentimonster to cover his weaknesses. Shadow Moth, as with Truth, specifies that Wishmaker reveal the identities of the heroes as opposed to taking their Miraculous. He also shares Reflekta's weakness of having a transformational power that does a specific thing once and is useless on subsequent hits, leading to his defeat when one of his victims is turned against him.
  • Good Costume Switch: After being de-akumatized, Alec takes a new career path of encouraging others towards self-love and living their dreams. In this new persona, he has a stage costume that's like a vibrant gold version of Wishmaker's, including a staff-like microphone and further contrasted with a voluminous blonde wig.
  • Grayscale of Evil: He's an akumatized villain with only black, white and gray attire.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Wishmaker is defeated by having Viperion redirect one of his shots to hit a specific person with a childhood dream that turns him into a gigantic stuffed toy that hugs people. Ladybug then has him hug Wishmaker, who is powerless to stop someone already under the influence of his power.
  • Jerkass Realization: Alec realizes that the reason he was akumatized was that he made a career of tearing people down out of pain from when the same was done to him as a child.
  • Magic Staff: His akumatized object is his microphone, which becomes elongated into a staff that fires glittery stars that transform people into what they dreamed of being as children (or even younger if already children).
  • Near-Villain Victory: His only purpose was to unmask the heroes, particularly Ladybug and Cat Noir. While he never unmasks them both at the same time, he unmasks each of them in two different timelines (first Ladybug, then Cat Noir) before Second Chance is used to undo the damage. Indeed, Viperion being present is the only reason he loses.
  • One-Hit Kill: His power both transforms and brainwashes the victim, so getting hit even once will effectively neutralize the heroes as they mindlessly live out their childhood dream.
  • Sissy Villain: His design is very campy, wearing a sparkly bodysuit, black lipstick and platform heels.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He's a one time villain, but it's because of him that Luka discovers Ladybug and Cat Noir's civilian identities after both were exposed to his stardust attacks in different timelines.

    Simpleman 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/simpleman.png

A tricolored geezer who wants to simplify the world. That's it. His civilian identity is Marinette's traditionalist grandpa Rolland, which is his second akumatization complete with a unique identity. His akuma is in his baker's peel.


  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has pale, light grayish violet skin.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: One of the most ridiculous villains to date who comes dangerously close to convincing Ladybug and Cat Noir to surrender their Miraculous.
  • *Crack!* "Oh, My Back!": Apparently becoming akumatized does nothing to alleviate Simpleman's geriatric back pains.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: A villainous example. His ability to make things simpler doesn't sound very intimidating on paper. With it, he nearly convinces the heroes to exchange their Miraculouses for two pieces of candy.
  • Stupidity-Inducing Attack: His power to simplify things can basically render people stupid and persuadable, or in other words, simple-minded.
  • Super Zeroes: He tries to pass off as a potential hero for the children to look up to. But given how they're aware of his akumatization mixed with his sub-par performance, he's more zero than hero.

    Qilin 

An akumatized villain based on the mythical Chinese beast, the qilin/kirin. Her civilian identity is Marinette's mother, Sabine Dupain-Cheng.


  • Blow You Away: She can generate gusts of wind from her hands for close combat or to blast enemies away.

    Dearest Family 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/galette.png
This family is just like galette: sometimes sweet but with lots of nuts

A bickering family of evildoers who are driven to determine who has the best parenting method for raising Marinette. Membership includes Weredad (Tom Dupain-Cheng), Qilin (Sabine Dupain-Cheng), Bakerix (Rolland Dupain) and Befana (Gina Dupain). Their akuma is in the remaining piece of galette with each family member having consumed a piece of the same bread.

For more information about Befana, go here, and for more information on Bakerix and Weredad, go here.


Tropes applying to them collectively:

  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: They all still love Marinette and don't even mean to harm her. Qilin even scolds Weredad for scaring her.
  • Fairy Tale Motifs: Each member originates from a fairy tale or folkloric legend. Weredad is based on the Beast from Beauty and the Beast, Qilin is based on the Chinese unicorn, Bakerix is based on the Gaul Vikings of the medieval era, and Befana is based on the Italian witch herself.
  • Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: Weredad and Bakerix use their super strength to fight while Befana uses her magic revolver and Qilin attacks with gusts of wind.
  • Multi National Team: Just like their civilian forms, you have Bakerix and Weredad who originated from France, Qilin from China and Befana from Italy.
  • Token Good Teammate: Downplayed with Qilin. Unlike the other family members who want to hunt Marinette to raise her themselves, she's the only one who wants her daughter to be left alone and is willing to fight them on her behalf.
  • We ARE Struggling Together: They spend way more of their screentime arguing with each other than they do following Shadow Moth's orders.

    Moolak 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mulac.png
"Hahaha! With my impenetrable safe, I'll be even richer!"
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/safe_1.png

An avaricious scumbag who wants to be the richest man in Paris by turning everyone into coins, stored in his impenetrable golden safe. His civilian identity is Bob Roth and the akuma is in his number one coin.


  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He's as gold as the coins he pilfers.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: The negative emotion leading to Bob Roth's akumatization was caused by him dropping a penny down a drain.
  • Flying Firepower: He rides around in a giant safe that fires lasers from the corners.
  • Godzilla Threshold: With Cat Noir being unavailable to help, Moolak proves to be one of the toughest akumas for Ladybug to beat on her own. It was so bad that she had to call upon nine of her Miraculous Heroes to stop him.
  • Gold-Colored Superiority: Gold all over and he was tough enough that Ladybug called in nine of her Miraculous Heroes to get anywhere close to stopping him.
  • One-Hit Kill: His safe is armed with lasers that lets him turn people into gold coins with a single hit.
  • Pooled Funds: Played straight and subverted. Moolak is swimming inside a giant pile of coins inside his safe. When Pegasus tries to teleport in, however, he realistically bounces off the pile because it's a pile of metal filling the entire volume of the safe.
  • Powers Do the Fighting: Moolak himself has no apparent powers. It's his flying safe which attacks people and protects him from harm.
  • Punny Name: His name sounds alot like "moolah" which is slang for money, combined with "lock" which references his safe.
  • The Starscream: Subverted. Moolak contemplates stealing the Miraculouses for their monetary value but Shadow Moth threatens to take away his powers if he tries to double-cross him.

    Ephemeral 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sadrien.png
"I'm sorry. I promise this won't take long."

An abused and somber boy with the power to fast forward time. His civilian identity is Adrien Agreste, his second unique Akumatized form. The akuma is in his phone.


  • Amazing Technicolor Population: His skin turns lilac.
  • Being Evil Sucks: He doesn't mean to be a villain and is forced to follow the will of his abusive and emotionally distant father.
  • Beware the Superman: If Cat Blanc showed how dangerous Adrien would be if he got akumatized as Cat Noir, Ephemeral proves he'd be just as dangerous even untransformed.
  • Invincible Villain: He leaves the episode practically undefeated: Ladybug is unwilling to hurt him, and even if she was, a single touch from him is enough to near-instantly turn her back into Marinette. And to boot, he disappears right before Shadow Noir makes his wish.
  • Mana Burn: His ability can be summed up as drastically shortening the time it takes for a miraculous user to detransform after using their powers, reducing minutes to seconds.
  • Meaningful Name: His name means "short-lived". His power allows him to reduce the amount of time for anything he touches. Additionally, he has the shortest amount of screentime for any akumatized villain.
  • One-Hit Kill: Ephemeral's power doesn't outright kill Ladybug, but leaves her with so little time before she detransforms that it might as well be a one hit kill.
  • Overlord Jr.: A reluctant example, but he is working alongside his father, Shadow Noir, to achieve his goals.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Downplayed. Ephemeral himself doesn't seem to have any enhanced abilities, but his power allows him to reduce Ladybug's time countdown to seconds, leaving her ripe to have her Miraculous stolen.
  • Ret-Gone: Sass uses Second Chance to ensure the events that led to his creation never happened.
  • This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman: Unlike the others time-related akumatized vilains, Ephemeral's powers to accelerate time appear to be relatively harmless (unless he held back more powerful applications of his powers). However, this gives him the ability to completely capitalize on the 5 minutes time-limit and allows him to debilitate Ladybug, leaving her ripe for Shadow Moth to pick.
  • Time Master: He can speed up time for whoever he touches, reducing Ladybug's post-Lucky-Charm five-minute time limit to mere seconds.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: There's no word on what became of him after Shadow Noir succeeded in making his wish.
