Main Villains

    General 
  • Ambiguous Situation: "Timetagger" reveals that someone will take Gabriel's place as the Butterfly Miraculous holder but the status of the Peacock Miraculous isn't touched upon. Whether it is recovered, repaired, remains with Nathalie or is passed on like the Butterfly is, is unknown.
  • Dark Is Evil: Hawk Moth and Mayura's colour schemes are a deep purple and navy.
  • Foil: To each other:
    • Powers - Akumatization works by corrupting an individual, effectively rewriting their personality via their negative emotions whereas amokization realises a person's negative emotions in the form of a sentimonster. Essentially the former is internal and the latter, external. Both work by charging an object with energy then sending it out.
    • Motivation - Gabriel is creating the akuma villains to save the woman he loves and Nathalie is creating the sentimonsters to help the man she loves.
  • Good Powers, Bad People: Nooroo and Duusu's powers are meant to be used for good, and in the hands of heroes should create champions. However, their current holders are the Big Bad and The Dragon.
  • Not Brainwashed: Unlike most of the Akumatized victims below, the main villains were perfectly willing to be transformed.
  • Recurring Boss: As they have a conscious interest in beating the heroes.
  • Support Party Member: Unfortunately for the heroes, the way Nooroo and Duusu's powers work allows both Hawk Moth and Mayura to operate in the shadows, far from the battlefield. That said, Mayura appears to take an enforcer-like role in her partnership with Hawk Moth, fighting the heroes directly.
  • Telepathy: Via akumas and amoks, the two are able to form telepathic connections with their targets.

    Hawk Moth 

See this page for tropes regarding Hawk Moth.

    Nathalie Sancoeur / Mayura 

Akumatized form: Catalyst

Voiced by: Nathalie Homs (FR), Sabrina Weisz (EN), Gabriela Guzmán (MEX), Tami Barak/תמי ברק (HEB), Krisztina Czifra (HUN), Terezie Taberyová (CZE), Ana Mandić (SER)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/le_paon_concept_art.jpg

"Yes sir. Understood sir. I'm sure he'll understand, sir."

Gabriel Agreste's assistant. Completely stoic, with only an occasional display of emotion, she follows his instructions completely, and is typically in charge of Adrien's schedule. She's fully aware of his double-life as Hawk Moth, and helps him out however she can.

During the "Heroes' Day", Nathalie takes up the Peacock Miraculous to protect Gabriel, but it has adverse effects on her, meaning she can only use it infrequently.


  • All There in the Script: Her last name is never mentioned in the show.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Unlike the other Miraculous wielders, who retain their normal skin tones, Mayura has blue skin when transformed, seemingly because the Peacock Miraculous is damaged
  • Antagonist Abilities: She can create minions for the akumatized villains. The first one she's seen creating manages to blow away all of the heroes by flapping its wings. Furthermore, like Hawk Moth, Mayura is able to operate from a great distance away, meaning that the heroes can't trace her civilian identity. Also like Hawk Moth, she can hold her transformation after using her power.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: Considering she’s themed after a peacock, this is to be expected. Between the long flowing dress, cocktail hat and of course, the hand-fan, she almost fits this trope to a T. We say almost because ironically the only part missing is actually being an aristocrat.
  • Being Personal Isn't Professional: Often, she treats the Agrestes as her masters while she's their servant and nothing more. But she does show some hidden affection for them, such as suggesting Gabriel to spend Christmas with Adrien and hugging Gabriel when he feels hopeless about his cause along with the implication that she's loyal to him out of unrequited love.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: As one might expect being assistant to one of Paris's busiest fashion designers; she's not only tasked with his appointments but also with handling his son.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Her codename means "Peacock" in Sanskrit.
  • Blue Is Heroic: Inverted. It would be played straight, but like with Hawk Moth, the Peacock Miraculous is in the hands of a villain.
  • Breaking Speech: In "Miraculer", she bombards Chloé with a barrage of Armor-Piercing Questions.
  • Cast from Hit Points: Because the Peacock Miraculous is damaged in some fashion, using it takes a toll on the user's health. Nathalie is coughing and can't even stand up after just one use of it. The effect is so bad that even episodes later, she's still has horrible coughing fits that bring her to her knees.
  • Clipped-Wing Angel: Nathalie takes up the Peacock Miraculous to save Gabriel, even though she knows it's damaged and has been specifically been told by Gabriel not to use it due to the potential for backlash, which does happen.
  • Combat Hand Fan: Her Miraculous tool takes the form of this.
  • Dark Action Girl: Like Hawk Moth, she's no slouch when it comes to getting her own hands dirty. In "Miraculer", she fights evenly with a weakened Cat Noir and is later able to hold her own against Queen Bee long enough to escape.
  • Dark Is Evil: Nathalie wears a black business suit as a civilian and a dark blue outfit as a supervillain. In either identity, she's Hawk Moth's main partner in crime.
  • The Dragon: She knows Gabriel is Hawk Moth, and outright allows him to akumatize her as the third step in his master plan in "Catalyst". As of "Chameleon", she seems to be sharing this role with Lila Rossi.
  • Dramatically Missing the Point: Natalie's Internal Monologue in "Stormy Weather 2" states her admiration for Gabriel is because of his dedication to his family. As one savvy viewer points out, Natalie is either missing or flat out ignoring the fact that Gabriel's "dedication" is extremely damaging to everyone involved.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Nathalie became The Dragon to Gabriel partially due to her one-sided love for him, and she genuinely seems to care about Adrien.
  • Feathered Fiend: The end of Mayura's dress fans out into a train reminiscent of a peacock's tail.
  • Foreshadowing:
    • We've seen the Peacock Miraculous in Gabriel's vault prior to Mayura's debut.
    • In "Queen Wasp", Nathalie leans back on the double doors to Gabriel's office. The design of the doors are a set of rays, like the feathers on the back of a peacock.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Zigzagged. She's aloof and cold, but she has her nice moments. Then it turns out she knows Gabriel is Hawk Moth, and is outright helping him.
  • Godzilla Threshold: Gabriel claims that the peacock miraculous is "damaged", which is why he forbade Nathalie from ever using it because it was too dangerous. Considering that just one use left Nathalie coughing and weakened to the point that she had to be carried, he has a point.
  • Ill Girl: After using the Peacock Miraculous to save Hawk Moth from the heroes, Nathalie is next seen being carried by Gabriel and coughing hysterically, implying something wrong with the Miraculous.
  • Ironic Name: "Sans cœur" means heartless or "without a heart" in French, yet she's almost entirely motivated by her one-sided crush on Gabriel.
  • Irony:
    • The peacock is associated with regality and purity. Nathalie is a servant to the Agrestes, and her love for Gabriel goes as far as helping him in his villainous schemes, making her love unhealthy or impure.
    • The peacock is also associated with the Greek goddess Hera, queen of the gods. Because of her husband Zeus's constant unfaithfulness, Hera has very little patience for it. Nathalie is loyal to Gabriel because she is in love with him, in spite of his love and marriage to Emilie. Nathalie's love goes as far as joining Gabriel as a main villain by taking the Peacock Miraculous.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Despite having feelings for Gabriel, she assists him in his attempts to revive Emilie.
  • Late-Arrival Spoiler: Her being The Dragon to Hawk Moth is the big twist at the end of "The Collector", and most of her appearances afterwards hinge on knowing this fact.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • "Sans cœur" means heartless or "without a heart" in French, in reference to her aloof and distant personality and the fact that she's knowingly working for Hawk Moth.
    • Interestingly, her first name comes from the Latin name, Natalia, which meant "Christmas Day" from latin natale domini. On Christmas Day, she shows her caring side towards Adrien. "Natal" also has to do with babies, which also fits as Nathalie is the closest thing that Adrien has to a mother for the moment.
  • Mook Maker: By infusing the feathers from her hand fan with energy, tranforming them into amoks, she can create Senitmonsters, allies for the akuma villains.
  • Multicoloured Hair: Her hair is mostly black, but brushed off to the side, the fringe of her hair is partially dyed a dark red ombré.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Given that her surname translates to "without a heart", you'd be forgiven for not exactly trusting her. Sure enough, she's not only willingly working for Hawk Moth, but also takes up the Peacock Miraculous and becomes the villainess Mayura.
  • No-Sell: She's the only one shown onscreen to be completely unfazed by Audrey's behavior in "Style Queen".
  • Non-Standard Character Design: She's the first Miraculous user to not wear a Domino Mask or any other type of headgear that would obscure her facial features.
  • Not So Above It All: Can be seen singing "Merry Christmas To All" with everyone at the end of "Ladybug In Christmas".
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: In "Style Queen", in a rather affectionate move for her, she hugs Gabriel after he expresses uncertainty and hopelessness when the latest akuma attack fails. Afterwards, she appears conflicted about what she just did, implying Unrequited Love.
  • Parental Substitute: A rather cold and distant one, granted, but as mentioned above she's currently the closest Adrien has to a mother; it's telling that when he's trapped in his room during "Sandboy", he yells for Nathalie first and then his father.
  • Peacock Girl: A given in that she wields the Peacock Miraculous.
  • Prim and Proper Bun: She wears her hair in a neat bun, fitting her organized and no-nonsense personality.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Technically, they're dark pink irises with blue sclera, but they remain eerie and sinister enough to fit this trope.
  • Satellite Character: So far, to Adrien and Gabriel. Not much else is provided.
  • Secret Keeper: She knows what's behind Gabriel's secret wall and knows Hawk Moth's true identity.
  • Subordinate Excuse: "Style Queen" implies and "Stormy Weather 2" confirms that she has feelings for Gabriel, even though she knows he wants to bring his wife back.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: She's aloof and cold, but there are moments when it's obvious she feels bad about Adrien constantly having to deal with a busy schedule and not having his father around. The aforementioned Origins Episode is an example, and the Christmas Special has her try to reason with Gabriel to spend some time with his son.
  • Took a Level in Badass: A villainous example, in "Mayura", Nathalie takes up the Peacock Miraculous and becomes the supervillain Mayura.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Initially, she was just Gabriel's stoic assistant, only concerned with doing her job and occasionally throwing Adrien a bone. In "Catalyst" she openly and eagerly works with Hawk Moth to throw Paris into panic by enhancing her powers, smiling nastily before she gets akumatized. In "Miraculer" she once again becomes Mayura for their plan to turn Chloe against Ladybug.
  • Unrequited Love: "Stormy Weather 2" confirms that she has a one-sided crush on Gabriel.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Gets into melee combat with Cat Noir, who she suspects may be a teenager, and Queen Bee, who is unquestionably a teenager.

    SPOILER CHARACTER 

Future Hawk Moth

An unknown individual who will take up the mantle of Hawk Moth after Gabriel Agreste, and will be responsible for akumatizing Chris Lahiffe into Timetagger.
  • Ambiguous Gender: The title of "Hawk Moth" could very easily apply to a woman as it now does a man. Also, Timetagger seemingly instantly knows the Hawk Moth he's talking to is not the one who akumatized him, possibly because Gabriel isn't a woman. However, it's very possible that when Gabriel's downfall comes he's publicly exposed as Hawk Moth and Chris knows that the future Hawk Moth is not Gabriel because of this. Nonethless, with The Stinger implying Lila will become Hawk Moth in the future, the former seems more likely.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Nothing is known about this person, other than that they akumatized Timetagger and are not Gabriel Agreste. The end of "Timetagger" hints that it's Lila, but nothing's confirmed.
  • Legacy Character: A Butterfly Miraculous holder who will replace Gabriel Agreste.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: Gabriel has his moments but this Hawk Moth seems more smarter and more Genre Savvy than Gabriel ever was. Best seen when they send Timetagger back to steal the Miraculouses from Ladybug and Chat Noir's less-experienced teenage selves.
  • Walking Spoiler: The existence of this person is a major reveal in "Timetagger".

Akumatized Villains

    General 
  • Antagonist Abilities: Many of the villains are shown to be incredibly powerful with a wide variety of superpowers - some capable of toppling the Eiffel Tower with a single blow - on top of the general enhanced strength, speed and durability. It is especially telling that it takes two Miraculous wielders to handle one akumatized villain at a time. This is in heavy contrast with Ladybug and Cat Noir, whose abilities require quick thinking and skill to distract and misdirect their opponents.
  • Antagonist Title: Almost all episodes are named after their villains.
  • Armies Are Evil: Many of the villains created have the power to enlist random citizens in their cause, either through mind control (like with Pharoah, Darkblade, Kung Food and Simon Says) or through intimidation (like with Rogercop and Reflekta).
  • Ax-Crazy: Some villains like Stormy Weather or Timebreaker become really deranged after their transformation, and are willing to kill innocent people, without any empathy.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: From a man feeding pigeons in park to a sweet teenage girl with a celebrity crush, most of them are harmless and genuinely nice people before akumatization.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Many of them possess goofy and saccharine designs and names, strange and outlandish powers and comedically weak motivations. With that said, almost all of them are big enough threats that not only warrant both Ladybug and Cat Noir working together to combat on equal footing, but also cause massive collateral damage in the process.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: All of them, to the point it is basically his Modus Operandi. Quite a few are also capable of infecting others, turning them into their minions.
  • The Bus Came Back: A few times previously defeated villains make a return.
    • Puppeteer, by utilising doll copies, was able to bring back old akuma villains Lady WiFi, Evilistrator and Rogercop.
    • Taken to the extreme in "Catalyst" when the titular villain grants Hawk Moth the power to create as many akumas as he wishes resulting in no less than seventeen former villains becoming re-akumatized and if the promo posters are anything to go by, more are on the way.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Becoming akumatized is the most common way for a minor character to get focus and development.
  • Deal with the Devil: Justified, since Hawk Moth's victims clearly aren't in their right mind when they make their decisions.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Their standard procedure, thanks to Hawk Moth's influence.
    Hawk Moth: (to Glaciator) Since they refused to let you melt their hearts, I'm giving you the power to melt their entire bodies instead.
  • Excessive Evil Eyeshadow: Vaguely butterfly-shaped dark marks around their eyes are present in plenty of the designs.
  • Iconic Item: Whatever object was possessed by the akuma.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Bubble wand. Umbrella. Book. Weapons made out of food. It's harder to find a villain that uses a typical weapon (such as sword wielding Darkblade).
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: It's hard not to root for them just a bit when they target, say Chloé or... Chloé.
  • Logical Weakness: Because Hawk Moth amplifies their negative emotions, particularly their desire for revenge, they tend to focus more on their revenge than following Hawk Moth's instructions. This often comes back to bite him, provided he doesn't decide to override his minions' control.
  • Meaningful Name: Their names are relevant to their motives, abilities, etc.
  • Moment of Weakness: Also known as Hawk Moth's favorite time to say, "Hi".
  • Monster of the Aesop: Occasionally, their akumatized forms are about some sort of central lesson — Timebreaker is about owning up to your mistakes and being responsible for your own possessions, Horrificator is about standing up to your fears, etc.
  • Monster of the Week: Hawk Moth turns a whole bunch of recurring and oneshot characters into akuma over the course of the first season.
  • Personality Powers: They gain powers that are in some way related to the incident in which they were wronged. Aurore lost a chance to be a weather girl and thus becomes Stormy Weather and gains weather powers, Officer Roger becomes the robotic Rogercop, Nathanaël becomes his comic superhero persona after being mocked for it, and so on.
    • Note that some akuma have powers more related to the possessed item, like Bubbler.
  • Put Them All Out of My Misery: Standard procedure: Hawk Moth gives them powers, and they can (and will) get revenge for a slight, in exchange for the Miraculouses. If the entire city of Paris has to go as collateral damage because of said revenge or the Miraculous holders playing hard to get... well... so be it.
  • Revenge: More often then not, getting back at the person that caused their akumatization is their priority, or they're at least among the targets.
  • Sanity Slippage: Often a side effect of being akumatized.
  • Stupid Evil: Since all of the villains are Brainwashed and Crazy via amplifying their more negative attributes, they are easily distracted and fooled by both Ladybug and Cat Noir and whatever vendetta that led to their akumatization in the first place.
  • Super Powers for a Day: Goes without saying.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Although the origin episode reveals that it's possible to use akumas to create heroes as well.
  • That Man Is Dead: Pretty much universal reply to being called by their real name. Hawk Moth himself even refers to akumatization as "becoming someone else".
    Lady Wifi: Alya's been disconnected. I'm Lady Wifi.
    Darkblade: D'Argencourt was defeated, not Darkblade!
    Dark Cupid: I'm not Kim, I'm Dark Cupid!
  • Took a Level in Badass: Anyone akumatized by Hawk Moth gets powers that make them dangerous than their civilian counterparts. Though it's temporary and comes with a price...
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: This namely, as they lose their moral compass. Along with a chunk of their sanity most of the time.
  • Totalitarian Utilitarian: While some of their motivations come across as rather petty and selfish (Stormy Weather trying to destroy Paris with turbulent weather for losing a popularity contest, Darkblade conquering Paris after losing a democratic election, Gamer going after Marinette and converting innocent civilians into energy for losing a spot in a gaming competition) some of the villains actually try and make things better, Hawk Moth using their good intentions as a way of convincing them to work for him (Rogercop enforcing the law and making the Mayor be held accountable for his corruption, Gorizilla wanting to find and protect Adrien, Zombizou wanting to spread love across all of Paris). It is Hawk Moth's corrupting influence and their rather questionable methods that make them bad guys.
  • The Unfettered: Because they are born from hyper-exaggerating their victims' emotions surrounding random misfortunes, the villains often have strange and simplistic motivations and goals that they nevertheless pursue with insane, single-minded obsession. Timebreaker, for instance, came from Alix' anger at her family heirloom breaking, resulting in Timebreaker wiping out her entire class and commanding great power for no reason other than to fix a watch. This sometimes causes problems for Hawk Moth when what the villain is obsessed with doesn't entirely line up with what he himself wants, as it often results in them being distracted and him having to curtail them.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Many of them have sympathetic motives and/or target characters who seriously deserve some karma, but the fact that they've lost their moral compasses in the process means that they have to be stopped.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Some of them are just ignored after being turned back to normal, especially if they're not recurring characters.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: With Revenge being the most common motivator behind akumatized villains, the people that get akumatized are sunk to their lowest point before Hawk Moth's corrupting influence latches on, and they will tear the city apart (often literally) to find the person that wronged them.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Male villains don't hesitate to attack Ladybug and female villains can expect the same treatment from Cat Noir.

Season 1

    Stormy Weather 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stormy_render1.png
"In Stormy Weather's world, it's winter wonderland FOREVER!"
Voiced by: Geneviève Doang (FR), Mela Lee (EN), Lourdes Arruti (MEX), Blanka Nagy (HUN)

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


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

    Bubbler 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bubbler.png
"No more adults means total freedom! This is SOOO sweet!"
Voiced by: Alexandre Nguyen (FR), Ben Diskin (EN), Alberto Bernal (MEX), Artur Palomo (SP), 홍콩 범- (Hong Bum-ki) (KOR), István Baráth (HUN), Carolina Sales (EP), Gustavo Pereira (BP), Lorenzo Crisci (ITA), Christian Zeiger (GER)

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


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

    Copycat 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ml_copycat_300x300.jpg
"I love you, Ladybug! I'm way better than this mangy alley cat!"
Voiced by: Franck Tordjman and Martial Le Minoux (FR, first and second voice, respectively), Brian Beacock (EN), Alan Fernando Velázquez (MEX), Michael Ernst (GER), Tibor Fehér (HUN)

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


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

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

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


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

    Lady Wifi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lady_wifi_render1.png
"Alya's been disconnected. I'm Lady Wifi."
Voiced by: Fanny Bloc (FR), Carrie Keranen (EN), Alicia Barragán (MEX), Sara Iglesias (SP), 김은아 (Kim Eun-ah) (KOR), Bárbara Lourenço (EP), Luisa Palomanes (BP), Josefina Hylén (SW), Csenge Szilágyi (HUN), Letizia Ciampa (ITA), Marta Dylewska (P), Елена Шульман/Yelena Shulman (RUS)

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


  • Bond Villain Stupidity:
    • It doesn't occur to her to just remove Ladybug's earrings when she has her cornered.
    • Lady WiFi frees Ladybug, and forces her to use her Lucky Charm to save Cat. She then makes the mistake of leaving the two alone, with only a livestream camera keeping an eye on them.
  • Clark Kenting: Despite her disguise being just a domino mask, Marinette only gets the hint when she sees the distinctive ladybug charm on her phone. Never mind the familiar hair dye and forehead mole.
  • Do Not Adjust Your Set: Her "video" runes hijack all nearby screens, and can create a large projection screen in the sky.
  • Eye Colour Change: Alya's hazel eyes are changed to red-violet as Lady WiFi.
  • Failed a Spot Check: She believes Chloé (currently dressed as Ladybug) to be Ladybug and unmasks her to the public, completely missing that her hair and eye color are wrong. It isn't until the real Ladybug shows up that she realizes her mistake. Then again, she also never realizes the superhero she follows obsessively has the exact same hairstyle, color and eyes as her best friend either.
  • Flight: While under the Puppeteer's control, she demonstrates the ability to fly around using a "fast-forward" rune.
  • Flipping the Bird: She sends a left-handed salute, which is an insulting gesture.
  • Instant Runes: Most of her powers manifest as floating pink icons projected from her smartphone.
  • Logical Weakness: She gets her powers from wifi signal, so when the reception is low, she loses most of her superhuman skills. She still proves strong enough to overpower Cat Noir in a straight fight.
  • Multicolored Hair: Just like her civilian counterpart.
  • Teleportation: She can travel through wifi, teleporting herself from one phone to other.
  • Time Stands Still: Her "stop" and "pause" runes freeze whatever they hit.

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


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

A villain who can summon the power of Egyptian Gods. His civilian self is Jalil Kubdel. His akuma is contained in his necklace.


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

    Rogercop

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

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


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

    Evillustrator

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

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


  • Adorkable: Even after being akumatized, his awkward crush on Marinette remains intact.
  • Affably Evil: Is friendlier and more benevolent than most, if not all, of the other villains. Just don't trigger an Et Tu, Brute? reaction from him.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has light purple skin.
  • Anti-Villain: Evillustrator only wants to go on a date with Marinette, and he uses no lethal force until she betrays him to Cat Noir.
  • Art Attacker: His powerset.
  • Art Initiates Life: One of his main abilities. He can turn his drawings into real, moving objects.
  • Bishōnen: Not surprising considering Nathaniel designed him as an idealized version of himself.
  • Deathbringer the Adorable: Despite the name, he's among the nicest, if not the nicest villain in the show.
  • Dub Name Change: In the French version he's known as the Illustrator/Artist.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: His reaction when she steals his stylus and reveals that Cat Noir was watching their date.
  • Logical Weakness: As a villain who draws things into existence, he needs a decent light source to draw properly. When deprived of that, he's powerless.
  • Love Makes You Evil: He became the Evillustrator as a result of being teased about his one-sided crush on Marinette.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: All he wants is for Marinette to like him, and he's perfectly willing to give up on doing any evil when she asks.
  • Multicolored Hair: Red with purple ends. His bangs look like the bristles of a paintbrush.
  • Nice Hat: He wears a black beret.
  • Reality Warper: Can draw anything into, and/or erase anything out of, existence.
  • A Sinister Clue: He is left-handed. Specially noticeable since his civilian self is right-handed.
  • Stalker with a Crush: He enters Marinette's room without permission to ask her on a date.
  • Then Let Me Be Evil: Unlike the other akumas he has no villainous agenda other than getting revenge on Chloé, which he quickly drops once Marinette asks him to and agrees to go on a date with him. However, once he finds out that Marinette only agreed to the date to help Cat Noir get his akuma, he promptly gives up on trying to be good for her and continues his Roaring Rampage of Revenge on Chloé.
  • Villainous Crush: After transforming into the Evillustrator, the first thing he does is go and ask Marinette on a date. He even puts off attempting to get the Miraculous because he's so focused on trying to spend time with her.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: One has to wonder why he resorted to attacking Chloé with saw blades when he could've just straight-up erased her from existence on the spot.
  • Woman Scorned: Gender-inversion. Evillustrator becomes much more dangerous when he sees that Marinette only went on a date with him to help Cat Noir defeat him.

    Dark Cupid

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

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


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

    Horrificator

Voiced by: Jessie Lambotte (FR), Jessica Gee (EN); Noriko Takaya (rest) and Valentina Souza (only episode 4) (MEX), Yolanda Gil (SP), Pamella Rodrigues (BP)

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


  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Horrificator spares Ivan for his earlier sympathy toward a frightened Mylène.
  • Emotion Eater: She feeds on fear, though conversely she is weakened when her victims show no fear.
  • Extra Eyes: She has a third eye in her forehead.
  • I'm Not Afraid of You: The key to defeating her. She grows stronger the more she's feared, and shrinks when someone reacts to her with fascination or joy.
  • Make My Monster Grow: Her size increases as she gets more powerful.
  • Morphic Resonance: Despite her inhuman appearance, the tentacles on Horrificator's head are in the same shape as Mylène's hairstyle.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Unlike the other villains, who keep mostly humanoid appearances, Horrificator is a full-blown monster.
  • People Jars: She seals her victims in gooey containers.
  • Prehensile Tail: Her long tail is strong enough to snatch and carry several humans.
  • Super Spit: She can spit huge amounts of a bright pink goo that hardens almost instantly, which she uses to immobilize her victims.

    Darkblade 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/darkblade.png
"PAR LE FER!"
Voiced by: Thierry Kazazian (FR), Joe Fria (EN), Armando Coria (MEX), Miguel Ángel Pérez (SP)

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


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

    Mime 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mime_miraculous.png

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


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

    Kung Food

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

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


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

Voiced by: Martial Le Minoux (FR), Ben Diskin (EN), José Ángel Torres (MEX), César Díaz Capilla (SP), Gábor Boldog (HUN), Sebastian Fitzner (GER), Joao Victor Granja (BP)

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


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

    Vanisher

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

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


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

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


  • BFS: Her Anti-Charm creates a massive sword. It doesn't do her much good, as Ladybug's Lucky Charm produces an item that trips her up and allows Cat Noir to disarm her.
  • Boring, but Practical: Unlike Ladybug's "Lucky Charm" which always gives her a Lethal Joke Item, Antibug's "Anti Charm" just straight up gives her a giant sword.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Anticharm!
  • Evil Knockoff: She's Ladybug with an inverted color scheme and with a similar powerset.
  • Killer Yo Yo: Just like Ladybug's.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Being Ladybug's evil counterpart, her outfit is black with red spots.
  • True Final Boss: Takes over as the main threat of the episode once Vanisher is defeated.
  • Variable-Length Chain: The string of her yo-yo can extend for as long as she wants.

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

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


  • Creepy Child: A corrupted 5-year-old who can control people through their respective doll. Dare say she's not creepy after reading that.
  • Enfant Terrible: The first of six akumas so far originating from a child.
  • Magic Wand: Enchants her dolls by shooting a spell from her akumatized wand.
  • Near-Villain Victory: Despite literally being one of the most childish villains Hawk Moth has created, she comes within a hair's breadth of winning. It helps that, unlike most of his villains, she already wants to defeat Ladybug and Cat Noir.
  • People Puppets: By enchanting a doll of her target, the Puppeteer is able to command their movements and speak through them. There is no known range limit.
  • Power Floats: She floats around everywhere, probably because it would be hard to take a knee-high villain seriously otherwise.
  • Super Empowering: A quirk of her power is that any formerly akumatized villains she controls get their powers back. She is able to revive Lady WiFi, the Evillustrator, and Rogercop in this fashion.
  • Superpower Lottery: Arguably the biggest winner yet. Her Villain Override is even more widespread than Hawk Moth's; her People Puppets consist of some of the stronger villains seen so far; and she can even control anyone, not just other villains, so long as she has a corresponding doll.

Voiced by: Marie Nonnenmacher (FR), Erin Fitzgerald and Reba Buhr (EN, series and webisodes, respectively), Alondra Hidalgo (MEX), Erika Mendes (BP), Kitty Kántor (HUN)

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


  • Clone by Conversion: Her beams turn whoever they hit into a physical copy of herself, though still possessing their own mind and voices and lacking her powers.
  • Cool, But Inefficient: Her only superpower (aside from strength and speed) is the ability to make everyone else look just like her. Using this power on Ladybug and Cat Noir however makes her unable to get their Miraculous. Funny, considering Hawk Moth gave her these powers for the sole purpose of getting their Miraculous.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Her only attack is to convert people into copies of herself, which annoyed Hawk Moth when she converted Cat Noir and couldn't take his Miraculous as a result. Furthermore, since he's already converted, her beams do nothing to him on subsequent hits.
  • Impractically Fancy Outfit: She looks like a kabuki themed clown in a rubber tutu and platform shoes. This doesn't hinder Reflekta nearly as much as it does for her clones because Power Floats.
  • Revenge: She wants revenge on Chloé for making her miss the class picture. Once she gets it by converting Chloé, she moves on to converting the entire town.
  • Symbol Motif Clothing: Reflekta is covered in the pattern of an eye, not just on her outfit, but on her hair... or headdress.
  • Voices Are Mental: Even though the people she converts are exact physical duplicates, they retain their normal voices.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fang_the_dragon.png

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

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


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

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

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


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

Voiced by: Franck Tordjman (FR), Ezra Weisz (EN), José Gilberto Vilchis (MEX)

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


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

    Magician of Misfortune 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/akumatized_background.png

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


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

    Princess Fragrance

Voiced by: Jessie Lambotte (FR), Erin Fitzgerald and Reba Buhr (EN, series and webisodes, respectively), Tania Becerra (MEX), Bori Csuha (HUN), Lhays Macêdo (BP)

A perfume wielding villainess bent on getting a Happily Ever After with her own Prince Charming. Her civilian identity is Rose, and her akuma is in her perfume bottle.


    Volpina 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ml_volpina.jpg
"Everyone thinks I'm a superhero, including Cat Noir, so you won't be able to call me a liar anymore, 'cause everyone will think you're the liar!"
Voiced by: Clara Soares (FR), Lisa Kay Jennings (EN), Cristina Hernández (MEX), Aurora González (SP), Andrea Laudon (HUN), Luisa Cezar (BP), Valentina Favazza (ITA)

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


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

    Stoneheart

"KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIM!"
Voiced by: Franck Tordjman (FR), Matthew Mercer (EN), Oscar Garibay (MEX), Charles Emmanuel (BP), András Regenye (HUN)

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


  • Attack Backfire: Attacking him increases his size.
  • The Juggernaut: Is a Mighty Glacier Rock Monster with an Attack Backfire-style defense.
  • Mighty Glacier: He's extremely slow, but he easily overpowers anyone he gets his hands on and is impossible to attack directly.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Much more so than Horrificator. There is nothing about Stoneheart's appearance that even resembles Ivan.
  • Revenge: He wants revenge on Kim for teasing him about his inability to confess to Mylène. Later on Chloé for mocking him.
  • Rock Monster: He's made of rock.
  • Say My Name:
    "KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIM!"
    "MYLEEEEEEEEEEEEEENE!"
  • Slave Mooks: Because Ladybug failed to purify his akuma the first time, it multiplies and converts random people into copies of Stoneheart. When Ivan falls victim again, all the copies obey his will.
  • Starter Villain: He's the first akuma that Ladybug and Cat Noir fight.

    Santa Claws 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/santa_claws.jpg
Voiced by: Martial Le Minoux (FR), Joe Ochman (EN), Rubén Cerda (MEX)

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


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

    The Collector

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 akumas. 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.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: His size and design are intimidating, but it's his ability to effortlessly steal and store pretty much anything 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 villain-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.

"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.


  • 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 Chloe'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.


  • 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 Chat 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.
  • 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.
  • Thinking Up Portals: 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.

    Befana

"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.
  • Fingerless Gloves: Like her civilian self, she wears black, fingerless gloves.
  • 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 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 them.
  • Required Secondary Powers: Mildly Averted: She's not immune to her own bullets.
  • Skunk Stripe: She has a stripe of gray hair in 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.
  • Taken for Granite: Her black candy bullets turn whatever 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.

    Riposte

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.
  • 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 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.
  • Sword Beam: Her sword emits boomerang-shaped energy beams that can cut through anything.

    Robostus 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mlrobostus.png
"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.
  • Genre Savvy: He's the first, and so far only villain, to steal Ladybug's lucky charm before she can use it.
    Robustus: "I told you Ladybug! I've analyzed and calculated all your moves! You can't win without your Lucky Charm!"
  • Gratuitous Latin: His name is based on 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 akuma 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.

"Lollipop!"
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 a baby akuma 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 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, August doesn't change much after being akumatized. He still looks like an adorable baby.
  • 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.

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 proceeds to fill with whipped cream. He proceeds to tell 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?"
  • 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.
  • Shout-Out: To Owlman, Batman's villainous counterpart from Earth-3 (A DC comic book setting where all the heroes are villains and vice versa).
  • 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.
  • 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.

A giant humanoid Snowlem capable of turning people into ice cream. His civilian identity is André the ice cream man, 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.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Much like André himself, Glaciator rhymes most of his lines.

    Sapotis 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sapotis___header_image.png
"MIRACULOUS! MIRACULOUS!"

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.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: They only appeared in one episode, but their ongoing numbers and excessive damage cause Ladybug to temporarily recruit Alya as "Rena Rouge", for the very first time, to help defeat them.
  • 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.

    Gorizilla 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gorizilla___header_image.png
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.


  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Not that many giant gorillas come in indigo.
  • Kaiju: Not the first to be made by Hawk Moth, but he is most certainly the first Killer Gorilla.
  • Killer Gorilla: He's big, strong, mean, and a gorilla.
  • "King Kong" Climb: He scales a sky-scraper with Adrien in-hand to attract Ladybug.
  • King Kong Copy: He's a giant gorilla with a fixation on a blonde who is not interested.
  • Logical Weakness: When Wayhem sprays deodorant in Gorizilla's nose, he's overwhelmed by the smell and unable to track Adrien via his super smell abilities.
    • Also, given Gorizilla's massive size and how he was using both hands to subdue them, he's unable to secure Ladybug and Chat Noir's miraculous.
  • The Nose Knows: He uses the charm Marinette gave to Adrien (which is also the object possessed by the akuma) to track Adrien's scent.
  • Shout-Out: His name evokes Godzilla and his design evokes King Kong.

    Captain Hardrock 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/captn_hardrock.png
"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.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Her design is red and black with some gold accents.
  • Shout-Out: Her name is an homage to veteran Space Pirate Captain Harlock.
  • Utility Weapon: That laser cutlass of hers also features microphone and spyglass modes.

    Zombizou 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zombizou___header_image.png
Kissou...
Voiced by: Jessie Lambotte (FR), Dorothy Fahn (EN), Alina Galindo (MEX), Paqui Horcajo (SP), Sylvia Sallusti (BP)

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.


  • 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 Chloe rejected and mocked him. Though both initially wanted to target Chloe (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.
  • Love Theme: She is an Affably Evil Anti-Villain dressed in pink with a heart motif on her clothes that turns people into kiss-happy zombies by blowing magic kisses with the goal and making everyone love each other.
  • Make-Up 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 has no physical improvements whatsoever. All Ladybug needs to do is steal her lipstick once she gets close, and 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.

    Syren 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/syren.png
"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).
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Frightningale 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/frightingale_7.png
"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.


  • Bright Is Not Good: She wears a multicolored outfit and can turn people into statues.
  • Dance Battler: Her fight style.
  • Duality Motif: She has different-colored eyes, and they match the colors at the tips of her pigtails.
  • Evil Diva: Her civilian self is decidedly not this, but as an akuma, 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Shout-Out: Her appearance partially resembles Harley Quinn.
  • 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.

    Troublemaker 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/troublemaker.png
"Touch me if you dare!"

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


    Reverser 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/reversor_square.png
"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.


    Anansi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/40428429_2043359065994226_4408023045822742528_n.jpg

A spider supervillain who wants to protect her sister from danger. Her civilian identity is Nora Cesaire 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.
  • Boxing Battler: As her civilian self is a boxer, Anansi fights mostly using boxing moves.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Giant Spider: Resembles one.
  • In Name Only: Aside from being a spider-like creature, she bears little resemblance to the actual myth of Anansi.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: She has six arms and hits like a truck.
  • 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.

    Sandboy 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sandboy.png
"The Sandboy just checked in. Now nightmares can begin!"

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


  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has blue skin.
  • Catchphrase: "The Sandboy just checked in. Now nightmares can begin!"
  • Enfant Terrible: Sandboy is a young boy (hence the name).
  • Magic Carpet: He flies around on a giant pillow that can shoot sand which brings nightmares to life.
  • Reality Warper: Can summon people's nightmares into reality, and his spree eventually turns Paris into a World Gone Mad.
  • The Sandman: Given his alias and dream-related powers, he's clearly meant to evoke the figure from European folklore who brings dreams to those asleep.
  • Your Worst Nightmare: His power allows him to bring to life a person's nightmare and have them terrorize the waking world.

    Style Queen 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/style_queen_header_photo.png

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 Chloe as Queen Bee during the "Heroes Day" arc.
  • Duel Boss: With Cat Noir suffering a bad case of Bruce Wayne Held Hostage, 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.
  • 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 akumas (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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Taken for Granite: Well glitter. With her sceptre she's able to transform unwitting civilians into statues of golden glitter.

    Queen Wasp 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/queen_wasp_small.png
A wasp-themed supervillain based on the Bee Miraculous holder. Her civilian identity is Chloe 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.
  • Bee Afraid/Wicked Wasps: A wasp-themed villain.
  • Evil Knockoff: Interesting in that she's a knockoff of herself. Chloe 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 look is just Queen Bee 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 Chloe's second akumatization.
  • Walking Spoiler: Her existence reveals that Chloe will get the Bee Miraculous and that not even Miraculous holders are immune from akumatization.

    Malediktator 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/malediktator.png
A supervillain who can fire sun shaped projectiles that makes anyone obey his every command. His civilian identity is Andre Bourgeois, the mayor. His akuma is located in his sash.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has blue-grey skin.
  • Archnemesis Dad: Ladybug recruits Chloe/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 Chloe 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, Andre, 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: Andre Bourgeois is a bumbling but well meaning father and incompetent mayor who easily caves into his daughters' demands. After becoming Malediktator, he becomes a harsh and demanding tyrant who forces everyone to do as he says.
  • Napoleon Delusion: Malediktator's head looks similar to Napoleon Bonaparte's famous bicorne.
  • 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.

    Frozer 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/frozer_small.png
Voiced by: Philippe Candeloro(FR)
An ice skating supervillain. His civilian identity is Philippe Candeloro. 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).
  • 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.
  • Walking Wasteland: Of the "icy wasteland" variety. Everywhere he goes, everything freezes.

    Catalyst 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/catalyst_square.png
A super powering villain. Her civilian identity is Nathalie Sancoeur. Her akuma is in her tablet.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: She has periwinkle skin.
  • 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 reakumatize everyone who were 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 deakumatize. Instead, Hawk Moth takes away her powers off-screen, after he is defeated as Scarlet Moth.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: It's never explained how Natalie undid her transformation as Catalyst before transforming into "Mayura".

    Rena Rage 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rena_rage.png
The supervillain counterpart of the Fox Miraculous holder. Her civilian identity is Alya Césaire, her second unique akumatization.
  • Palette Swap: She is just Rena Rouge but her Miraculous costume is recolored red.
  • Red Is Violent: Hawk Moth's enhanced power gives her a red coloration, and a violent temperament to boot.

    Shell Shock 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shell_shock_small.png
The supervillain counterpart of the Turtle Miraculous holder. His civilian identity is Nino Lahiffe, his second unique akumatization.
  • 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.

Season 3

    Chameleon 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chameleon_adrien_square.png
Chameleon transformed into Adrien
"Oops. I lied."
Voiced by: Clara Soares (FR), Lisa Kay Jennings (EN), Cristina Hernández (MEX), Aurora González (SP), Andrea Laudon (HUN), Luisa Cezar (BP), Valentina Favazza (ITA)

A shapeshifting villain. Her civilian self is Lila Rossi, her fourth akumatization but her second unique form. Her akuma is in her pearl earring.


  • Baleful Polymorph: Her powers allow her to take on the form of anyone she has kissed. Ladybug uses this to her advantage and gets her to accidentally kiss an oyster, trapping her in this vulnerable state.
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard: Chameleon changes into whoever she kisses. Ladybug tricks her into kissing a clam, a form utterly incapable of defending itself against Ladybug.
  • Not Brainwashed: She actually grabbed the akuma intentionally when she saw it after Marinette fends it off.
  • Not Wearing Tights: Unlike most akumatized villains, Lila's physical appearance does not change at all before she steals Adrien's appearance. This makes sense when Lila's abilities and personality would require her to remain inconspicuous.
  • The Paralyzer: Anyone she transforms into is knocked unconscious until she switches into a new form.
  • Personality Powers: Much like with Volpina, Chameleon's powers are perfect for a Consummate Liar like Lila. This time however, her motivations are less directed at making herself look more impressive (Volpina's appearances and illusion powers making herself look like a hero) and more about making others look worse (Chameleon stealing Adrien's appearance to slander him as bait).
  • Power Copying: When fighting Ladybug as Cat Noir, Chameleon is able to use Cataclysm.
  • Shapeshifting: Chameleon's main power. She must kiss a target to assume their appearance. Her shapeshifting isn't limited to humans, either, as Ladybug defeats her by tricking her into using her power on a clam.

    Weredad 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/weredad.PNG
"HOW DARE YOU COME BACK AFTER WHAT YOU DONE?!"

A werewolf with the ability to grow thorny vines and create a giant vine tower a la Jack and the Beanstalk. His civilian self is Marinette's father Tom Dupain, and the akuma is inside the rose Cat Noir gave Marinette, which is currently located at the center of his tower.


  • Archnemesis Dad: Weredad is the akumatized form of the main character's father. Ironically, he never directly fights his daughter, as she is imprisoned in his bramble vines.
  • Badass Moustache: After Tom is akumatized, his moustache becomes larger and hairier.
  • Dub Name Change: From Papa Garou to Weredad.
  • Duel Boss: With Ladybug imprisoned for the entirety of the fight, Cat Noir is forced to face Weredad alone.
  • Fairytale Motifs: He combines story elements of Jack and the Beanstalk, Beauty and the Beast, and Rapunzel, complete with putting any potential suitors through trials to win his daughter's heart.
  • Green Thumb: He can create long thorny vines, and can even make a tower from humongous vines which he can fully control.
  • Knight Templar Parent: Taking a page straight from the "Gabriel Agreste Parenting Guide" (literally), he imprisons Marinette in order to prevent her from being harmed by the outside world.
  • Near-Villain Victory: He had beaten Chat Noir into submission and was seconds away from removing his ring before Marinette destroyed his akumatized object.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: This werewolf has Green Thumb powers.
  • Overprotective Dad: Born from Tom's anger because of Cat Noir allegedly rejecting Marinette, Weredad is extremely protective of his daughter (declaring that he'll never let anyone break her heart again until she finds a perfect suitor) and attacks Cat Noir for hurting her.
  • Papa Wolf: Pun aside, he is a force to be reckoned with. And if you are a threat to the health or happiness of his daughter, then brace yourself.

    Christmaster 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_19_4.png

A little boy who wants it to be Christmas sooner rather than later. His civilian self is Chris, Nino's younger brother. His akuma lies in his snow-globe.


  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Has skin as white as snow.
  • Dub Name Change: In the original French version, his name is Maître Noël, which translates to Master Christmas.
  • Enfant Terrible: Yet another akumatized villain who is a child.
  • Fisher King: He turns Paris into a Christmas wonderland and can send his toys into the domain to do his handiwork.
  • Living Toys: His main power.
  • Reality Changing Miniature: His Christmas themed snowglobe redecorate Paris to match including real snow and he brings his toys to life by placing them into it which summons them life-sized and animated in reality.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: He looks kind of like an elf with a red and black color scheme.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: He has red eyes and is one of Hawk Moth's villains.
  • Sadistic Choice: Ladybug forces him to give up his snow-globe lest Cat Noir use Cataclysm on his robot toy.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": "Christmaster" is the official English spelling, but the episode he appears in was erroneously presented as "Chris Master".

    Backwarder 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/backwarder.PNG
"No more time to waste!"

Master Fu's lost love who wants to reclaim lost time by stealing it from others. Her civilian self is Ms. Lenoir. Her akuma lies in her brooch.


  • Amazing Technicolor Population: She appears to have light purple skin, even under her mask.
  • Clockwork Creature: Clocks tie in well with her whole theme of reclaiming lost time.
  • Evil Old Folks: She is the oldest akumatized villain in the show thus far, being at least as old as Master Fu.
  • Expy: Of Timetagger from Season 1. She's capable of stealing time energy from her victims by touching them and only wanted it so she can go back in time and rewrite the past.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Despite being a one time villain, she openly gives away Master fu's name to Hawkmoth along with the fact that he's the Guardian of the Miraculous.
  • Time Master: Anything she touches with the tip of her cane is forced to reverse all its actions, while the cracks on her mask heal.
  • Touch of Death: Getting hit even once by her power is instantly incapacitating, as the victim is forced to reverse their own actions and loses any awareness of their surroundings.
  • Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: Has bright yellow eyes and is one of Hawk Moth's villains.

"You remember your BFF Oblivio, don't you? Don't tell us you've...forgotten us!"

Voiced by: Carrie Keranen and Ben Diskin (EN)
A mysterious villain who wants to erase everyone's memories. Their civilian identity is Alya Césaire and Nino Lahiffe, and their akuma is in their tablet.
  • Arm Cannon: Which fires amnesia-inducing blasts.
  • Ambiguous Gender: While The Reveal of Oblivio's civilian identity shows them to be two people, Alya and Nino, who identify as female and male, respectively, when deakumatized, Alya refers to Oblivio as "he".
  • Made of Air: Oblivio's body is a purple mist immune from physical attacks save for their gloved hand and arm cannon.
  • Mind Wipe: Oblivio can erase the memories of others with shots from their Arm Cannon.
  • Sharing a Body: Much like in "Sapotis", Oblivio was akumatized when two people were holding the object that was infected. Unlike Sapotis, however, Oblivio was two people sharing one physical body as opposed to two people with the same akuma but separate physical forms.
  • Voice of the Legion: Their voice is a combination of Alya and Nino's.

    Silencer 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/silencer_small.png
"Shhhh!"
Voiced by: Maxime Baudouin (FR), Andrew Russell (ENG)
A villain who can steal his victims' voices and wants revenge on Bob Roth for plagiarizing him and his band. His civilian identity is Luka Couffaine, and his akuma is in his helmet.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has blue skin, which is visible underneath his helmet.
  • Anti-Villain: Silencer only targets Bob Roth and XY. Everyone else he attacks are people Bob Roth threw into his path, either vocally or physically. It's also worth noting that it's Silencer's methods the heroes have a problem with, not his goal, which they willingly help him achieve when he's no longer akumatized.
    Cat Noir: Say, normally we protect good people from the bad guys, but this time I'm having serious doubts.
  • Badass Normal: Apart from being able to steal people's voices, he doesn't have any significant powers to fend off against the heroes. Which makes him just as formidable given the trouble he's able to cause on his own.
  • Break Them by Talking: He's able to do this on Bob Roth by using the stolen voices to pressure him to confess.
  • Character Tics: Whenever he speaks with a stolen voice, he makes a "talking hand" gesture with one of his hands. If he's using more than one voice, he does this with both hands.
  • Finger on Lips: How he activates his power. He places two fingers on his victim's lips, holds a finger up to his mouth, and shushes them. This causes their voice to fly from their mouth in the form of a tiny, flying jellyfish.
  • Irony: He reassures Marinette that he won't hurt her, but later ends up stealing Ladybug's voice.
  • Power Nullifier: Manages to steal Ladybug's voice, preventing her from using her Lucky Charm.
  • Villainous Crush: He not only doesn't take Marinette's voice, he uses XY's voice to tell her how extraordinary she is before pursuing Bob again, showing that Luka's interest in her carried over to his villain self.
  • Voice Changeling: Silencer can use the voices he's already stolen.
  • The Voiceless: Zig-zagged. He does speak, but not with his own voice (except when he's shushing his victims). Instead, he uses the voices he's stolen to communicate.
  • Voice of the Legion: He can overlap the voices he's stolen.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: As Marinette notes, she can sympathize with his motives (Bob Roth and XY plagiarized his band), but not with his methods (brute force, voice theft, and impersonation of various individuals).

    Bakerix 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screen_shot_2019_05_12_at_111857_pm.png
"That's not how it's done!"
A villain who desires to get rid of anything he considers too modern. His civilian identity is Rolland Dupain, Marinette's grandfather, and his akuma is in his flask.
  • The Brute: He mostly relies on sheer brute strength to crush anything he doesn't like or anything in his way.
  • Evil Luddite: Bakerix despises any modern innovation, even the convenient ones such as electric buses and the train to England.
  • Monstrous Humanoid: Bakerix is entirely composed out of bread and baked products like croissants, shaped vaguely human.
  • Shout-Out: His name, appearence, and powers all harken to the famous French comic book, Asterix
  • Super Serum: Drinks a potion from his flask for a Growing Muscles Sequence.
  • Weird Beard: Like the rest of him, it's made out of bread.

    Oni-chan 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screen_shot_2019_05_12_at_112326_pm.png
A villain who wants to keep Lila away from Adrien at any cost. Her civilian identity is Kagami Tsurugi, her second unique akumatization, and her akuma is in the rose Adrien gave her, which takes the form of her sword.
Voiced by: Clara Soares (FR), Faye Mata (EN), Nagore Germes (SP)

  • Culture Equals Costume: Just like with her identity as "Riposte", "Oni-chan's" appearance is based on the demons of Japanese folklore.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Her teleportation is twice used against her. First, after she's tied Ladybug to a lamppost, Cat Noir has a fireman answer the phone to bring Oni-chan to him before she can take Ladybug's earrings. Then Ladybug exploits this again to teleport her into her bonds, making it easy to disarm her.
  • Meaningful Name: The "oni" in her name is Japanese for "demon" and "chan" is a suffix that is commonly used for Japanese girls. The demon part fits with her appearance and Kagami herself is a Japanese girl.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Wants to skewer Lila so she can have Adrien to herself.
  • Pinocchio Nose: Afflicts Lila with this by placing a rose thorn on her forehead; whenever she lies, the thorn grows. It also allows her to teleport to wherever Lila is by swapping with whoever answers the phone near her.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Her appearance is comprised of stark contrasts of red, black and white, which are also the colors Kagami typically wears.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: When Cat Noir jokes about being better than Adrien, Oni-chan unleashes a furious barrage of slashes while ranting about how Adrien is "perfection incarnate" and than she'll love no one else but him.
  • Telephone Teleport: Oni-Chan's power is a variant. She can switch places with people who receive her message on their phones.
  • Tracking Spell: The horn that Oni-Chan puts on Lila's forehead allows Oni-chan to transmit a text message to the person nearest to Lila. Letting Oni-Chan teleport to her instantly by switching places with the person who answered the message. (The phone number is supplied by magic).
  • The Tragic Rose: Her akuma is in the rose Adrien gave her, and several of her powers are themed after roses.
  • Unfortunate Names: Her name also has a double meaning. In Japan, the term is used to address an older sister or sibling. And given her extreme possessiveness and admiration for Adrien, it unintentionally comes off as Brother–Sister Incest.
  • Villainous Crush: She makes a Declaration of Protection to Adrien after her akumatization before going off to find Lila and make her pay for her deception.
  • Yandere: She is violently determined to protect Adrien and have him all to herself.

    Miraculer 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/miraculer_square.png
A power stealing supervillain determined to prove to Chloe she's worthy of her attention. Her civilian identity is Sabrina Raincomprix, her second unique akumatization, and her akuma is in her replica Cat Noir staff.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: She looks like a clown, childishly mimics everything Ladybug says, and her only goal is to be Chloe's best friend. Despite that, she manages to steal Ladybug (though she accidentally returns it), Cat Noir, Rena Rouge, and Carapace's powers and use those same powers to hold her own against the heroes.
  • Effective Knockoff: Like Volpina to Rena Rouge, Miraculer is this to the entire team; she has unlimited use of all the superpowers she steals.
  • Godzilla Threshold: The first Akuma who required all of the heroes to beat and even then, she still manages to give them a run for their money.
  • Hybrid Power: Miraculer can use hybrid versions of the superpowers, being able to cast Cataclysm from her Lucky Charm.
  • Power Parasite: Her power is to steal the heroes' superpowers. She manages to steal each of the heroes' powers except Queen Bee's, although Ladybug tricks her into returning Lucky Charm to her.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Miraculer has bright magenta hair.

    Timetagger 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/timetagger_square.png
A time-travelling supervillain with the power to send people back in time. His civilian identity is the adult Chris Lahiffe, and his akuma is in his spray gun.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Timetagger has blue-purple skin.
  • Art Attacker: The tags he leaves with his spray cans are what causes those touched by them to travel through time.
  • Conqueror from the Future: Timetagger is an akumatized version of Chris Lahiffe from the future.
  • Outside-Context Problem: While Timetagger is not the first time-based villain Ladybug and Chat Noir have ever faced, he is definitely a much bigger threat. If either of them get hit by him, they will be sent centuries into the past with no foreseeable means of getting back, with his impact being so powerful that nearly every person he sends back winds up impacting the timeline hard enough for the environment to radically change (with public and ancient art depicting his victims). It takes them working together with a time-traveling hero with way more experience than them and long-distance help from their future-selves to stop him.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Timetagger often delivers quick rhymed taunts, likely due to extensive practice with Chris's rapping game.
  • Smug Snake: He openly taunts to Present!Hawk Moth that he does not answer to him.
  • Teleport Spam: He can teleport to any point he's tagged with his gun. Since he quite liberally tags everything around him, this makes catching him considerably difficult.
  • Time Master: Timetagger can send anyone to any point and any place in history.

Amokized Sentimonsters

    General 
  • Conveniently Timed Distraction: Besides working as allies and muscle for the akuma villains, this seems to be the other purpose of the monsters, the Butterfly monster being used as a distraction to help Hawk Moth escape and the Lollipop creature used to keep Ladybug from reaching Chloe.
  • Dumb Muscle: The sentimonsters act as allies for the akuma villains. In "Miraculer", Ladybug makes a point of noting that the lollipop monster is on its own, rather than partnered with an akuma villain. This essentially makes them The Dragon of The Big Bad's Dragon.
  • Enemy Without: Much like how Hawk Moth's misuse of the Butterfly Miraculous corrupts normal people into supervillains, Mayura's misuse of the Peacock Miraculous creates monstrous constructs out of people's negative emotions.
  • Mooks: Sentimonsters are (typically) non-sentient entities created by wielders of the Peacock Miraculous.

Season 2

    Giant Purple Butterfly 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screen_shot_2019_02_03_at_114217_am_1.png
"Let your despair be embodied in a powerful protection!"
The first sentimonster Mayura manifests. Manifests from Hawk Moth's despair in his defeat. The amok is in his broken cane.
  • Blow You Away: By just flapping its wings, it creates a current so strong that it blows away all five miraculous heroes.
  • Moth Menace: It's a giant monstrous moth that attacks the heroes.

Season 3

    Lollipop Monster 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lollipop_monster_square_1.png
"Enhance and hone that frustration!"
A humanoid lollipop creature. Manifests from August's frustration for lollipops. The amok in in his pacifier.
  • Anthropomorphic Food: It takes the form of different, spherical balls of candy connected by lollipop sticks.
