    General 
  • Always Lawful Good: Implied. It is mentioned that the Miraculouses were created with the express purpose of empowering heroes as a means of influencing the world around them. Using them for anything other than selfless reasons would be an aberration. Sadly, kwamis don't seem to have any real say in the matter. Trixx and Duusu lean more chaotic, though.
  • Animal Motifs:
    • All the kwamis have traits relating to their Miraculous. Tikki has antenna and spots, Plagg has several cat traits (whiskers, cat ears and a tail), Nooroo has butterfly wings, Wayzz has a shell, and Trixx has ears and a tail resembling a fox, Pollen resembles a bee completely.
    • Transformations add more, with the aquatic versions of Tikki and Plagg being a fish and triton respectively.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Kwamis are abstract creatures. Each kwami is an embodiment of an idea or emotion, like love, beauty... and mathematics.
  • Been There, Shaped History: In this 'verse, the kwamis are responsible for many major events in both history and folklore. For instance, Plagg is responsible for the extinction of the dinosaurs, Tikki worked with Joan of Arc, Trixx has been revealed (via Word of God) to have been wielded by the Pied Piper, and the Monkey King was a wielder of Xuppu and the Monkey Miraculous.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Each Miraculous comes with a color-coordinated kwami; the color scheme extends to the suit of their bearers.
    • Red for Tikki/Ladybug.
    • Black for Plagg/Cat Noir.
    • Purple for Nooroo/Hawk Moth.
    • Green for Wayzz/Carapace.
    • Orange for Trixx/Rena Rouge.
    • Yellow for Pollen/Queen Bee.
    • Navy for Duusu/Mayura.
    • Cyan and white for Fluff/Bunnyx.
    • Gold and brown for Xuppu/King Monkey.
    • Red, black and gold for Longg/Ryuko
    • Teal for Sass/Viperion.
    • Dark brown and black for Kaalki/Pegasus
    • Grey and pink for Mullo/Multimouse
  • Eastern Zodiac: There are kwamis based off of the animals from the Chinese zodiac, who are properly introduced in Sandboy.
  • Elemental Powers: While none of the shown powers have anything to do with the Five Elements, or Wu Xing, the five outer Miraculous, Fox, Bee, Turtle, Peacock, Butterfly, are stated to represent them.
  • Fairy Companion: Each Miraculous comes with a fairy-like creature called a kwami that provides the power.
  • Fingerless Hands: Their upper limbs look more like fins than actual arms, but they can hold and carry stuff just fine.
  • Geas: The kwamis are magically compelled to never speak the names of their owners to each other, and must obey any commands given by the holders of their Miraculous. Hawk Moth uses this to make sure Nooroo doesn't run away by ordering him to never move more than a few feet away at all times, and Nooroo is physically incapable of doing so thanks to the spell.
  • Godzilla Threshold: While Fu is reticent to give out anymore Miraculous given that he's already distributed the two most powerful ones, he acknowledges that even some of the other Miraculous are unique among the Miraculous. Before loaning out the Monkey and Snake Miraculous he acknowledges that their abilities are both special and powerful. Bunnyx also mentions that she is only ever called in, with the Rabbit Miraculous, when everyone else has failed.
  • Good Feels Good: Wayzz notes that the kwamis felt good being able to help and communicate with humans once the Miraculouses were made, allowing humans to see them.
  • Intangibility: They can pass through things at will.
  • Invisible to Normals: Before the Miraculouses were created, kwamis couldn't be seen or detected by humans or other normal creatures. They also can't be caught on camera.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Although the Guardians (now just Master Fu) have special mixes that can grant the kwamis additional powers, the kwamis themselves are not permitted to know the recipes in case their Miraculouses fall into the wrong hands. This definitely works out considering what happened to Nooroo.
  • Mentor Mascot: Tikki and Plagg in particular.
  • Midair Bobbing: They can levitate at all times; kwami move around when talking or emoting, and even "standing still" they still bob a little up and down.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: Most kwamis don't like being used for evil, but if someone evil gets ahold of their Miraculous, they have to obey them.
  • Mysterious Past: As of yet, not much about their origin has been revealed. However, a comic issue at least revealed that they began forming at the beginning of the universe and needed Miraculouses in order to interact with normal beings and that a mage created the Miraculouses, though there hasn't been any deeper explanation about it.
  • No Biological Sex: As confirmed by a crew member, kwamis "don't really have a gender." However, kwamis will go by male or female pronouns, and the kwamis who use female pronouns often have eyelashes.
  • Older Than They Look: All of the kwamis are thousands of years old. They started forming at the beginning of time.
  • Our Gods Are Different: Akin to gods, although not in control of the universe.
  • Personality Powers: They're attracted to people whose temperament they do best with. While Tikki helps mentor and encourage Marinette, Plagg brings out Adrien's rebellious side.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: In the typical sense that kwamis are able to lift objects much larger and much heavier than themselves but also the fact that creatures around ten centimetres tall have power akin to those of literal gods.
    • Shown most blatantly when Plagg uses Cataclysm without Adrien and almost destroys all of Paris. In a later episode just breathing on pavement causes it to crack and crumble.
  • Power Limiter: "Style Queen" indicates that the Miraculouses limit and focus the kwamis' powers. For instance, Cat Noir can use Cataclysm on one specific object, while Plagg's attempt to use it without Adrien causes massive devastation across Paris.
  • Power-Up Food: Once a kwami uses up their energy, they need to eat in order to get their energy back and retransform their master. In theory any food should do, but each kwami has a favorite that may or may not be more effective at recharging them than other foods. For Tikki, it's baked sweets like cookies, and for Plagg, it's cheese. Using specific mixtures of ingredients allows the kwami to take on specialized forms, such as aquatic traits for underwater battles. Marinette bakes these formulas into macarons for Tikki while Adrien gets flavored cheese for Plagg.
    • In "Mayura", Hawk Moth hints that this restriction may be due to the heroes' inexperience, rather than simply how the kwamis work.
  • Really 700 Years Old: They are all extremely old, having been around before the pyramids were built. A story from the Miraculous Adventures comic book series reveals that kwamis have existed since the beginning of time, forming whenever a new idea or emotion appears in the universe.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: The kwamis are a race of tiny fairies with huge heads and large eyes.
  • Secret Keeper: Naturally, as they're the ones who give their holders the powers in the first place, they always know their true identities.
  • Servant Race: Much like djinn, they are completely at the whims of their miraculous' wielders, referring to them as their "masters" and "owners" in spite of their overwhelming power. Because of this, they are restricted from doing certain things if their wielders wish it. Tikki and Plagg are physically incapable of saying their owners' names out loud, and Nooroo must remain within a few feet of Gabriel. Gabriel even briefly whims him unable to speak before undoing it, claiming that it was "just a joke". Despite this, it seems that the kwami are at their best, or at least much prefer to have a harmonious equal and equal partnership between them and their humans.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Played with; some of them have visible eyelashes, indicating that they are female. However, there are some with eyelashes who are actually male, and a few of them have different genders across dubs.
  • Theme Naming:
    • All the kwamis have a repeating letter in their name.
    • The concepts the kwamis are the embodiment of all end in an -ion suffix. Tikki; Creation, Plagg; Destruction, Nooroo; Transmission, Wayzz; Protection, Trixx; Illusion, Pollen; Subjection, Duusu; Emotion, Xuppu; Jubilation, Kaalki; Teleportation.
  • There Is Another: "Feast" reveals that Master Fu's Miraculous Box was only one of many until his sentimonster destroyed them all. But Ladybug's World-Healing Wave after defeating Feast in the present day ends up restoring them...
  • Time Abyss: Kwamis have been around since the universe began, making some, if not all of them, older than living things like humans.

Yin and Yang Kwamis

    Tikki 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tikki_render_41.png
"Marinette, you are different, but different as in surprising, unpredictable, and endearing, and very talented. You learn fast."

Voiced by: Marie Nonnenmacher (FR), Mela Lee (EN), Chang Eun-sook (KOR), Nuha Qais (ARA), Marta Méndez (ES), Angélica Villa (MEX), Mia Kadosh/מיה קדוש (HEB), Sipos Eszter Anna (HUN), Agata Paszkowska (P), Helena Montez (EP), Isabelle Cunha (BP), Jasmine Heikura (SW), Alina Teianu (ROM), Joy Saltarelli (ITA), Jennifer Weiß (GER), Maria Naganawa (J), Ivana Tenjović (SER), Kristina Habuš (CRO), Hanna Sobolyeva/Ганна Соболєва and Yelyzaveta Zinovenko/Єлизавета Зіновенко (UKR, voice-over and dubbing, respectively), Agnes Fasting (NOR)

The kwami of creation. A helpful, kind, fairy-like creature that mentors Marinette. Connected to the Ladybug Miraculous, her main power she provides Ladybug is Lucky Charm. Her Miraculous are Marinette's earrings, and she helps her transform into Ladybug.


  • Be Yourself: Most of her advice boils down to this sentiment. Whenever her charge is doubting her abilities, Tikki's always there to reassure Marinette that believing in herself will fix her current problem.
  • The Conscience: She often urges Marinette to take her duty as Ladybug more seriously, or just to be a better person in general.
  • Genki Girl: Is very cheerful and enthusiastic.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: To show her friendly and heroic nature.
  • The Maker: While it is unclear whether she had a hand in the creation of the universe, it is explicitly said that she is the Anthropomorphic Personification of Creation, technically qualifying her as a Creator God.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • Possibly. "Tiki" was the first man in Maori legend — a fitting name for the spirit of creation.
    • Alternatively, "Tyche" is a Greek goddess of luck, specifically associated with the fortune and destiny of cities.
  • Nice Girl: Very sweet and kindhearted.
  • The Older Immortal: Tikki is the oldest kwami, forming before the others at the beginning of the universe.
  • Older Than She Looks: Tikki came into being at the same time as the concept of creation, meaning that despite looking and behaving like an excited little girl she is as old as the universe itself.
  • Only Sane Man: Beneath her cutesy exterior, she displays the most levelheaded personality of the cast and is nothing but helpful and encouraging with Marinette.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: The usually calm Tikki is extremely proactive in trying to get the Miraculous book during "Volpina", which shows just how important it is.
  • Outside-the-Box Tactic: When manifesting Marinette's Lucky Charm, her choice of materials is a bit...odd. For instance, when fighting the mime, she gives out a shoebox to help Ladybug construct a makeshift projector, a coin to buy a bag of popcorn to distract pigeons, and a rubber ball to break the lamps in a room.
  • The Power of Creation: She grants the power of creation, manifesting as Ladybug's Lucky Charm and World-Healing Wave. This is because she formed at the beginning of the universe.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Plagg's red (ironic, since she herself is red). Tikki acts as something of a mentor to Marinette that encourages her to not let her runaway emotions cloud her judgement and be more responsible. This is in contrast to Plagg, who is a Troll (who be smarter than he looks) that encourages Adrien - who's life has always been all work and no play - to forgo his responsibilities and learn to be a little more selfish.
  • Secret Keeper: As the one who gave Marinette her powers, she is naturally one of the only ones who knows her true identity.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: As of "Dark Owl", she knows the truth about Adrien being Cat Noir without the latter being aware. In "Reflekdoll", Adrien formally meets Tikki for the first time and interacts with her as both a superhero and civilian, making her into his regular Secret Keeper.
  • Shipper on Deck: She gives advice to Marinette about how to approach Adrien.
  • Sweet Tooth: Tikki likes everything from the bakery that Marinette's parents run, but cookies in particular.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Unlike the male kwami Plagg, Tikki has visible, long eyelashes.
  • Time Abyss: While we don't know how old exactly, she's been around long enough to have been the companion to Queen Nefertiti, who lived over five thousand years ago. She's much older than that, and says she was there since the first Ladybug.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: She is normally seen munching on chocolate chip biscuits.
  • Trickster Mentor: Sometimes gives cryptic advice to help Marinette that isn't immediately obvious.
  • Women Are Wiser: Compared to Plagg, Tikki is more responsible and grounded.

    Plagg 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/plagg_render_41.png
"Oh, I'm sure there'll be another Cat Noir to give me cheese... but he won't be you."

Voiced by: Thierry Kazazian (FR), Max Mittelman (EN), Jun Tae-yul (KOR), Wael Shaheen (ARA), Antonio Ramírez de Antón (SP), Óscar Flores (1-13) and Irwin Daayán (rest) (MEX), Eran Mor (HEB), Tamás Gardi (HUN), Luis Lucas (EP), Luiz Sergio Vieira (BP), Lucas Krüger (SW),Raul Stănulescu (ROM), Riccardo Scarafoni (ITA), Pavel Tesař (CZE), Georgi Sojanov/Георги Стоянов (BUL), Konrad Bösherz (GER), Hiroshi Kohsaka (J), Nemanja Živković (SER), Lorenc Kaja (ALB), Volodymyr Tereshchuk/Володимир Терещук and Kyrylo Suzansʹkyi/Кирило Сузанський (UKR, voice-over and dubbing, respectively)

The kwami of destruction. A gluttonous, lazy but ultimately good-natured fairy-like creature that mentors Adrien. Connected to the Cat Miraculous, his main power he provides Cat Noir is Cataclysm. His Miraculous is Adrien's ring, and he helps him transform into Cat Noir.


  • Ambiguously Bi: Plagg is pretty affectionate with Tikki, but compared to her relationship with Marinette, Plagg is far more affectionate with Adrien in the present. He calls Tikki his "Sugarcube" and while he has a pretty clear crush on her, he is very affectionate with Adrien as well.
  • Affectionate Nickname: He refers to Tikki as his "sugarcube".
  • The Anti-God: Plagg is the Dark Is Not Evil equal and opposite to Tikki in a bitheism and duotheism Daostic kind of relationship. They also have opposite personalities.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: The source of Adrien's destructive powers, but like all kwamis, his powers are intended to be used for good.
  • Big Eater: He can (and will) eat cheese blocks bigger than his body in one bite. Case in point, the Origins episode shows that the first thing he does after waking up from who knows how long is look for something to eat.
  • Cat Stereotype: Plagg is the spirit of bad luck, so he has the form of a black cat. He's also quite lazy, and loves dairy products.
  • Cute Little Fangs: Also the only teeth he has, but it adds to "mischievously cuteness" appeal.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Downplayed on both counts, since the audience already knows he's the one to give Adrien his powers, but one would probably not expect the food-obsessed, lazy and trolling kwami to be responsible for the sinking of Atlantis and the extinction of the dinosaurs along with the tilting of the Tower of Pisa.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: He is a black cat with powers related to rot, but like all kwami he is benevolent. Though lazy and annoying.
  • Destroyer Deity: He counts as this, being the Anthropomorphic Personification of Destruction. Granted he is a rare benevolent example, acting as an equal/opposite counterpart to Tikki in the Taoist concept of yin and yang.
  • Fatal Flaw: Gluttony. His endless hunger for cheese gets himself and Tikki outed to Ms. Mendeliev and nearly costs Ladybug and Cat Noir their secret identities in "Kwamibuster".
    • Even before this, his mistaking a bracelet for a camembert box ends up setting off the conflict of "Rogercop" and not only results in the titular Akuma, but stops Adrien from transforming for a little while since the bracelet gets stuck on Plagg's body.
  • Forgot About His Powers: "Rogercop" would have been a very short episode if Plagg had remembered he could use his Intangibility powers to free himself from the bracelet. Instead, he spends half the episode with the thing stuck around his head, until Adrien figures out another way of removing it.
  • Give Him a Normal Life: Downplayed. Plagg tries to encourage Adrien to enjoy his youth whenever possible. Sometimes, it's ill thought-out advice.
  • Hidden Depths: Though he can't sing a note, he's actually pretty good on the piano, though his small size means he can only imitate the part of one hand.
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: In "Captain Hardrock", after Gabriel forbids Adrien to go to his friends' concert, Plagg tries to cheer him up with an ode to Camembert...which is sung horribly off-key. Adrien still appreciates the thought.
  • Jerkass Has a Point:
    • In general, he's not wrong that Adrien should enjoy being a kid, especially since he was raised and lives in such a restrictive household environment.
    • He pointedly gives Adrien a minor What the Hell, Hero? moment in "Copycat" — correctly stating that it was Adrien's jealousy that resulted in the titular akuma.
    • Plagg gives Adrien another What the Hell, Hero? moment in "Frozer", as despite often saying how he's in love with Ladybug, he goes on a date with Kagami, and then briefly leaves her to see how Marinette's doing. The kwami makes a good point on how Adrien is giving some mixed signals and how he's being unintentionally insensitive to all of the girls (really, only two) involved.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Plagg tends to be lazy, irresponsible and snarky, but it's obvious he cares for Adrien, asking if he's okay after Gabriel skips out on career day and empathizing with him after the events of "Simon Says".
  • Make Them Rot: He grants the power of destruction, manifesting as Cat Noir's Cataclysm.
  • Meaningful Name: "Plagg" sounds a lot like "Plague". Fitting for the spirit of destruction.
  • Mellow Fellow: Plagg is mellow and calm to the point of being lazy.
  • Older Than They Look: He's the spirit of destruction in direct balance with the Ladybug Miraculous, meaning that he's at least as old as Tikki is, but never really references his age onscreen.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business:
    • The usually laid-back and goofy Plagg gives a sad, sympathetic look to Adrien in "Simon Says" when the latter is looking at past pictures of him with his currently Missing Mom.
    • Plagg seems genuinely sad over Adrien seemingly ditching him for Sass, is greatly dissapointed in Adrien's plan in "Desperada", and also seems to be aware of all the timelines that Adrien went through. Poor Plagg...
  • Person of Mass Destruction:
    • He can use Cataclysm just like Cat Noir, but with far greater destructive power and far less finesse. When he uses it to help Ladybug in "Style Queen", he lightly taps the ground, creating a massive shockwave that destroys the Eiffel Tower and causes major damage to the rest of Paris. He's also apparently responsible for the sinking of Atlantis, making the Tower of Pisa lean, and the extinction of the dinosaurs.
    • In "Catalyst", he is able to create a massive sinkhole just by breathing on the street.
  • Phlebotinum Killed the Dinosaurs: Turns out that a reckless use of Cataclysm was behind it.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: You wouldn't normally expect a palm-sized creature like him to be capable of instant citywide destruction.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Tikki's blue. While Tikki is The Conscience for Marinette, encouraging her to be more responsible and think rationally, Plagg acts more as an Anti-Mentor (or a Trickster Mentor) that tries encouraging the introverted, "all-work, no-play" Adrien to be more impulsive and has his own fair share of good points despite his counter-productive advice.
  • The Sacred Darkness: The kwami of destruction and misfortune, yet he is the Dark Is Good and holy yin counterpart to Tikki.
  • Secret Keeper: As the one who gave Adrien his powers, he is naturally one of the only ones who knows his true identity.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper:
    • As of "Dark Owl", he knows the truth about Marinette being Ladybug without the latter being aware.
    • Subverted as of "Sandboy", as Plagg is seen with Marinette at Master Fu's place at the end. He is later shown interacting directly with Marinette in both of her identities in "Style Queen".
  • Shipper on Deck: He often tries to help Adrien with his feelings for Ladybug, despite the teasing. He's also teased him about Marinette on two separate occasions.
  • The Slacker: He is quite lazy.
  • Small, Annoying Creature: He isn't as helpful to Adrien as Tikki is to Marinette. Which is odd, considering his age.
  • The Snack Is More Interesting: Plagg will always, always, focus on his next meal rather than what is actually important. A particularly egregious example is when he can only whine about wanting Camembert after he and Adrien break into Gabriel's hidden safe and find a tome about the Miraculouses along with the Peacock Miraculous, which Plagg fails to even notice.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Sandwich: He's often about to eat cheese before Adrien forces him to transform. Of course, Plagg is usually just about to eat cheese in any scene he shows up.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Cheese wedges. He especially likes Camembert, a kind of cheese traditionally made with unpasteurized milk and known for for its strong (and sometimes unpleasant) smell.
  • Troll:
    • Sure, Camembert is Plagg's favorite cheese, but there are some subtle implications that one of the reasons he keeps demanding it is the fact that Adrien dislikes the smell.
    • In "Weredad", Plagg gleefully encourages Adrien to pursue Marinette as well as Ladybug, telling him there's nothing wrong with going after two girls at the same time. After Adrien leaves, he quietly adds, "especially when they're the same one".

Five Elements Kwamis

    Nooroo 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nooroo_render1.png
"But Master, the Miraculous are not meant to be used for evil purposes!"

Voiced by: Martial Le Minoux (FR), Ben Diskin (EN), Elsa Covián (MEX), Gianluca Crisafi (ITA), Ivona Rambosek (SER), Tiril Heide-Steen (NOR)

The kwami of transmission. A sweet but haggard fairy-like creature that is enslaved by Hawk Moth. Connected to the Butterfly Miraculous, his main power he provides Hawk Moth appears to be Akumatization. His Miraculous is a brooch, and he helps its wielder transform into Hawk Moth.


  • Butterfly of Transformation: Nooroo's Miraculous grants its wielder the ability of Super Empowering other people, transforming them into superheroes or supervillains.
  • Forced into Evil: He would rather not have his powers used for evil, but he has no say in the matter.
  • Grew a Spine: Minor but in "Stormy Weather 2" Nooroo talks back to Gabriel and says that he should spend more time with Adrien. He once again insists that Gabriel shouldn't be using the Butterfly Miraculous in the way that he is.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: It's implied in the origins two-parter that he gave Hawk Moth most of the exposition on the Miraculous before he realized that the latter intended to use the powers for selfish purposes.
  • Mr. Exposition: He provides an Info Dump on the Miraculous.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Nooroo is the only kwami whose antennae are not on his head, instead having them on his hind wings like a swallowtail butterfly.
  • No-Self Buffs:
    • The akuma he creates are unable to empower his wielder. Hawk Moth has to renounce him temporarily in order to transform himself into The Collector.
    • At the end of season 2, Hawk Moth gets around this limitation further by empowering Natalie into Catalyst, who has the ability to empower him right back.
  • Odd Name Out: Unlike the other known kwamis, Nooroo has two sets of repeating vowels in his name (the other ones have consonants).
  • Pretty Butterflies: A powerful butterfly-themed spirit.
  • She's a Man in Japan: Male in the French version, female in the Korean and Mexican version.
  • Super Empowering: He grants the power of transmission, manifesting as Hawk Moth's Akumatization.
  • Support Party Member: Of the kwamis whose special power has been revealed, Nooroo's has the least direct effects against an opponent, only being able to bestow Magic Enhancement / Super Empowering on others. In Queen Wasp it's revealed that this ability can buff other Miraculous.
  • Trauma Conga Line:
    • Not only is Nooroo unwillingly complicit in akumatizing many people into villains, when it's explicitly stated that kwamis desire only to do good, he has to endure Hawk Moth's abuse. In Sandboy it's revealed that a kwami must obey their Miraculous holder, with the magic of the Miraculous enforcing commands if necessary. Nooroo is confined to a specific distance from Gabriel that he can't leave no matter what that manifests as a barrier when he tries and when Gabriel gives a temporary order not to speak, Nooroo's mouth disappears.
    • It gets worse. In the future seen in "Timetagger", Nooroo has nothing to look forward to but having his powers abused by a second Hawk Moth.
  • Walking Spoiler: His appearance reveals the nature of Hawk Moth's powers.

    Wayzz 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wayzz_render1.png
"Excellent choice, Master."

Voiced by: Patrick Préjean/Martial Le Minoux/Franck Tordjman (FR, first, second and third voice, respectively), Christopher Smith (EN), Óscar de la Rosa (MEX), Marcelo Sandryni (BP), Antonio Palumbo (ITA), Lako Nikolić (SER)

The kwami of protection. A sage and wise fairy-like creature, companion to Master Fu and habitual mentor to Nino. Connected to the Turtle Miraculous, the main power he provides Nino is Shellter. His Miraculous is Fu's and Nino's bracelet, and helps the former turn into Jade Turtle and the latter transform into Carapace.


    Trixx 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/trixx_square.png
"You're absolutely right, Alya. I'm sure the three of you will make quite a team! You have all the making of a true superhero. You're strong, brave. But most of all, you're trustworthy."

Voiced by: William Coryn (FR), Cherami Leigh (EN), Luis Orozco (MEX), Érika Menezes (BP), Davide Garbolino (ITA), Tim Sander (GER),

The kwami of illusion. A playful fairy-like creature that habitually mentors Alya. Connected to the Fox Miraculous, the main power he provides Rena Rouge is Mirage. His Miraculous is Alya's necklace, and he helps her transform into Rena Rouge.


  • Ambiguously Evil: Thomas made an Ascended Fanon that confirmed the The Pied Piper of Hamelin was a Fox Miraculous holder. In the original story of the Pied Piper, he lured children away from their village for revenge, never to be seen again. Trixx may have influenced him. Trixx being the Guile Hero certainly gives more credence to this. This also brings the possibility that he wasn't trying to trick Alya at all and was genuinely suggesting she break her word and keep him anyway despite it being against the wishes of Ladybug and the Guardian. On the other hand, Nooroo is proof that kwamis don't have a choice in who uses them and for what, meaning he could have been Forced into Evil.
  • Breaking Old Trends: He's the first kwami to be paired off with a Miraculous wielder of the opposite gender in the present day.note 
  • Cute Little Fangs: In keeping with kwamis possessing characteristics of the animals they're based off of, Trixx has little fox incisors.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Trixx's appearance had many fans assuming he was female before his first voiced appearance.
  • Fantastic Foxes: Resembles a fox and grants mystical powers to his wielder.
  • Forced into Evil: An Implied Trope. One of Trixx's past holders was The Pied Piper of Hamelin, so if the Piper was villainous, this applies to Trixx.
  • Guile Hero: Trixx is the first of the kwamis to manipulate his own holder through deception. Plagg will encourage Adrien to bend the rules, and engages in obvious lying when he's lazy, and Tikki has asked Marinette to do things without explanation before, but Trixx dropping "Trustworthy" with the intent of being returned is first time we've seen a kwami con its holder.
  • Kitsune: Resembles one in design, but only has one tail.
  • Master of Illusion: He grants the power of illusion, manifesting as Rena Rouge's Mirage.
  • Meaningful Name: "Trixx" is phonetically similar to "tricks", fitting his powers and appearance.
  • Oblivious Guilt Slinging: When Alya is reluctant to return her Miraculous after getting to be a superhero, Trixx encourages Alya to keep it and mentions trustworthiness as one of her qualities, which prompts Alya to keep her word and return the Miraculous (although, that may not have been "oblivious" so much as "very deliberate").
  • Secret Keeper: As the one who gave Alya her powers, he is naturally one of the only ones who knows her true identity.
  • Supernatural Is Purple: Trixx is essentially god of illusion and possesses purple eyes which stand in stark contrast to his mostly orange design.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Subverted. Despite his visible eyelashes and this concept art showing him in a effeminate pose, he's referred to with male pronouns and has a male voice actor (in the original French).

    Duusu 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ml_duusu.jpg

The kwami of emotion. Connected to the Peacock Miraculous, his main power she provides Mayura is Amokization. His Miraculous is Nathalie's brooch, and he helps her transform into Mayura.


  • Ambiguous Gender: Duusu's somewhat feminine appearance and voice can make one think he's female, and the dubbing error in "Sandboy" where he's stated to be a "she" doesn't help, but he was confirmed by the show's creators to use he/him pronouns.
  • Chekhov M.I.A.: While the Peacock Miraculous has been seen in the possession of Gabriel Agreste, Duusu has not. That being said, the Peacock Miraculous's position in the top of the Miracle Box implies that it is important, and it's being used by Mayura, and he eventually shows up in Season 3.
  • Feathered Fiend: Not by choice, but he's a bird-like creature serving and empowering a supervillain.
  • Forced into Evil: While not confirmed, it's been implied that all the kwami are inherently good and Duusu's powers are currently being used by Mayura to aid Hawk Moth. The twist is that Duusu doesn't seem to realise his powers are being used for evil.
  • Genki Girl: Duusu is quite excitable, even in the face of defeat.
  • Glamour Failure: In "Reflekdoll", when Nathalie puts on the Peacock Miraculous, it glitches between its charged and camouflaged forms.
  • Heroic RRoD: "Heroes' Day" reveals that the Peacock Miraculous is damaged, and Nathalie seems ill after using his powers just once.
  • Mood-Swinger: Duusu can go from overly cheerful to crying and back again at the drop of a hat.
  • Mook Maker: He grants the power of emotion, manifesting as Mayura's Amokization.
  • Obliviously Evil: "Reflekdoll" reveals that Gabriel and Nathalie are hiding from him that they're using his powers for evil and they're also hiding from him that using the Peacock Miraculous makes the user sick.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Not by choice, but he has red eyes and he serves a supervillain.
  • Shipper on Deck: He calls Nathalie's Undying Loyalty to Hawk Moth "so romantic!"
  • Support Party Member: Interesting in that his powers have been used to support another Support Party Member. Hawk Moth, via Nooroo, creates akuma villains and Mayura, via Duusu, creates allies for them. However, instead of empowering the akuma villins directly, he creates sentimonsters to protect, aid and empower them.
  • Toxic Phlebotinum: According to Gabriel, the Peacock Miraculous is damaged in such a manner that makes using it dangerous to the holder. Seen very clearly when Nathalie's brief use of it fatigues her and causes her to break out coughing. An additional use seems to make Nathalie pass out and further usages seems to be causing Nathalie to suffer from poor health even when she hasn't even used it. In the season 3 finale, however, Gabriel gets his hands on the translated grimoire and manages to repair it.

    Pollen 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ml_pollen.png
"How may I please you, my queen?"

Voiced by: Emmylou Homs (FR), Cassandra Lee Morris (EN), Noriko Takaya (MEX), Weronika Łukaszewska (P, Style Queen and Sandboy), Bárbara Ficher (BP)

The kwami of subjection. A polite, obedient fairy-like creature that was initially intended to go to Alya but falls into Chloé's hands when Ladybug loses her Miraculous. Connected to the Bee Miraculous, her main power she provides is Venom. Her Miraculous is Chloé's haircomb, and she helps her transform into Queen Bee.


  • Ambiguous Situation: Pollen is inside the Bee Miraculous when Cat Noir uses Cataclysm on it but Ladybug's World-Healing Wave repairs it almost immediately, and it's not made clear whether Pollen was killed and then brought back to life or if she was totally unharmed. Given that it's implied that the Miraculous are merely objects that allow kwami to interact with and empower humans, the latter possibility is more likely.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: While Nooroo's power is meant to be used on people, in the hands of a good-natured individual it's meant to create heroes. Pollen's power on the other hand is offensive in addition to being meant to be used on people and is detrimental to the target rather than beneficial. Nonetheless, Pollen remains a force for good.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Seems both shocked and afraid, not to mention quite hurt by Chloe's Face–Heel Turn in "Heart Hunter".
  • Good Is Not Soft: The only kwami of the core seven whose default power has no use other than as a weapon. (Even Plagg's Cataclysm can be used on inanimate objects.)
  • Lady of War: Even though she is very polite and proper, referring to Chloé as "my queen", it doesn't detract from the fact that Pollen grants her holder powers that are extremely battle-oriented. The powers Pollen grants may actually be more relevant to battle than those granted by Plagg.
  • Meaningful Name: Pollen is the flower dust used for their reproduction. It gets on bees after they drink from their nectar, helping to pollinate the flowers.
  • The Paralyzer: She grants the power of subjection, manifesting as Queen Bee's Venom.
  • Virtuous Bees: She resembles a bee and creates bee-themed superheroes.

Chinese Zodiac Kwamis

    Mullo 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ml_rat.png

The kwami of multiplication. Connected to the Mouse Miraculous, the main power they provide is Multitude. Their Miraculous is a pendant necklace and they help Marinette transform into Multimouse.


    Stompp 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stompp_square1.png
"Keep singing! We must try to find out where he’s hiding!"

Voiced by: Marc Bretonnière (FR), Weronika Łukaszewska (P)

The kwami of the Ox Miraculous. Her Miraculous is a nose ring.


  • Determinator: Implied in "Sandboy", as while the kwamis are mostly scared after accidentally contacting Hawk Moth, she remains persistent, and tells them to keep singing so they can know his location.
  • She's a Man in Japan: Female in the English Dub, but male in the French.

    Roaar 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/roaar_square1.png
"Wait, wait! I think I’ve got it! It’s a paintbrush!"

Voiced by: Caroline Mozzone (FR), Pedro Reis (BP)

The kwami of the Tiger Miraculous. Her Miraculous is a panjas bracelet.


  • She's a Man in Japan: Roaar has a female VA in the original French Dub, but has a male voice in the English Dub.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: When Tikki presents a marker to the kwamis, Roaar touches the top and assumes it’s a paintbrush when the color runs off on his paw. This might also give an indication of how long the kwamis have been locked away.

    Fluff 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fluff_square1.png
"Was it breakfast or dinner? What time will it be yesterday? Is it tomorrow already? When it'll be the day after tomorrow, it will have be yesterday again!"

Voiced by: Laura Préjean (FR), Ryan Bartley (EN), Brygida Turowska (P), Enzo Dannemann (BP)

A hyperactive, motormouth fairy-like creature that will, in the future, come to mentor the wielder of the Rabbit Miraculous. The main power she provides is Burrow. Her Miraculous is a pocket watch, and she helps future Alyx transform into Bunnyx.


  • Alice Allusion: She and Bunnyx are both obviously references to the White Rabbit from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, with both of them resembling white rabbits and her Miraculous being Alix's pocket watch. There's also her fixation on the concept of time, and her rambling about nonlinear time is very much in line with Wonderland's themes of experimental thought.
  • All There in the Manual: Her name was given in this tweet six months before its proper reveal in the show.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: She's shown to be very talkative and obsessive over the concept of time, whilst talking a mile a minute.
  • Composite Character: The power she gives seems to be a fusion of those of Kaalki (portal creation) and Sass (time manipulation).
  • Motor Mouth: Talks quite a lot in her short moment onscreen.
  • Parasol of Pain: Her Miraculous tool.
  • Stock Animal Diet: Her Trademark Favorite Food is carrots.
  • Thinking Up Portals: The Burrow ability she grants can be used to teleport around.
  • Time Travel: She grants the power of time, manifesting as Bunnix's Burrow.
  • White Bunny: She's the Rabbit Kwami, and being based on the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, she's also white.

Voiced by: Alexandre Nguyen (FR), Ben Diskin (EN), Miguel Leal (MEX), Alexandre Maguolo (BP)

The kwami of intuition. A wise and calm kwami who is connected to the Snake Miraculous. The main power he provides is Second Chance. His Miraculous is a bangle, and he helps Adrien and Luka transform into Aspik and Viperion respectively.


  • I Am Very British: Sass speaks with an RP accent.
  • "Groundhog Day" Loop: A fairly short one. Sass’ power can only send the user back five minutes, but they can repeat that time as often as they like.
  • The Leader: Seems to be one for the kwamis as a whole, as everyone listens to him and he's the one leading the other kwamis into contacting Nooroo.
  • Save Scumming: His power allows his wielder to redo a critical moment in battle.
  • Sssssnake Talk: It's subtle, but Sass elongates his S's into a hiss. It's less subtle in the French dub.
  • Time Rewind Mechanic: His power is to turn back time up to five minutes.

    Kaalki

"Oh, to whom do I have the pleasure of speaking?"

Voiced by: Fanny Bloc (FR), Deneen Melody (EN), Wirley Contaifer and Bia Menezes (BP, season 2 and 3, respectively)

The kwami of teleportation. The main power she provides is Voyage. Her Miraculous is a pair of glasses, and she helps Max transform into Pegasus.


  • I Am Very British: The horse kwami has a noticeable English accent, though it's somewhat less posh than Sass's.
  • Meaningful Name: Kalki is an avatar of Vishnu in Hindu mythology that rides on a white horse and brings the end of the world.
  • Proper Lady: Her ultra-posh manner of speaking evokes this image.
  • Thinking Up Portals: She grants the power of teleportation, manifesting as Pegasus’s Voyage.

    Xuppu 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/xuppu_square_1.png
"I'm no plushie! My name's Xuppu, you nitwit!"
Voiced by: William Coryn (FR), Laura Torres (MEX)

The kwami of jubilation. The main power he provides is Uproar. His Miraculous is a circlet, and he helps Kim transform into King Monkey.


  • Composite Character: Astruc has described Xuppu's power as being a "soft mix" between the Lucky Charm and Cataclysm. In-series, it manifests as first creating something, like Lucky Charm, only for it to destroy the target's powers, like Cataclysm.
  • Everything's Better with Monkeys: A monkey kwami that turns its bearer into a monkey hero. Justified, since the monkey is an animal in the Chinese zodiac.
  • Manchild: Despite being a god-only-knows how old being of mythical power, he wastes no time getting into a childish argument with Kim when he is first summoned.
  • Power Incontinence: He grants the power of jubilation, manifesting as King Monkey’s Uproar.
  • Shout-Out: To the Monkey King from Journey to the West, being a monkey with trickster powers. According to Word of God, Sun Wukong was actually a Monkey Miraculous user in-universe.

    Orikko 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ml_rooster.png

The kwami of the Rooster Miraculous. Their Miraculous is a thumb ring.


  • Odd Name Out: Orikko is the only kwami whose name is three syllables long rather than one or two. Thomas Astruc highlighting it himself implies there's an important reason behind this.

Voiced by: Jessie Lambotte (FR), Maggie Vera (MEX), Weronika Łukaszewska (P), Luísa Cézar (BP)

The kwami of the Dog Miraculous. Their Miraculous is a collar necklace.


  • Canine Companion: They would be this to their holders.
  • Heroic Dog: Being able to allow someone to transform and become a hero definitely makes them qualify for this.

    Daizzi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ml_pig.png

Voiced by: Tony Marot (FR), Lupita Leal (MEX), Taís Feijó (BP)

The kwami of the Pig Miraculous. His Miraculous is an anklet.


  • Gender-Blender Name: Daizzi's name appears to come from the name "Daisy", typically given to women. In the French dub however, Daizzi has a male voice and uses he/him pronouns.
  • Mismatched Eyes: Not so much the eyes specifically but Daizzi has a black blotch around only one of his eyes.
