Miraculous Knight is a Batman/Miraculous Ladybug crossover fanfic by Mixedfan8643 and Tails-2-Me.

While tracking The Riddler to Paris, Batman finds himself meeting Ladybug and Cat Noir while trying to find his enemy. However, things get worse when Batman learns The Joker has followed him and an alliance between Nigma, the Joker, and Hawk Moth forms.

There is two sequels:one involving Wonder Woman: Gods and Gems, the third installment involving Young Justice (2010): Dawn of Heroes, and the final installment involving Green Lantern: Light of Life.


Tropes in this fic:

  • Adaptational Villainy: In canon, Hawk Moth was a case of Love Makes You Evil who only wanted the Miraculouses to bring his wife back and had no real animosity towards Ladybug and Chat Noir otherwise. Here, he just wants power.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Or Triumvirate, in this case. The Villain Team-Up of the Joker, the Riddler, and Hawk Moth. The Riddler gets captured first and the Joker pulls a Starscream and kills Hawk Moth.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Good news, the heroes stop the Joker from remaking reality and Marinette and Adrien meet the Justice League. Bad news, the Riddler killed Chloe, Gabriel was Hawk Moth and was himself killed by the Joker, and Adrien's mom is still missing.
  • Brought Down to Badass: After the Joker steals their Miraculouses, Adrien gets the Butterfly one from his father's corpse and uses it for its intended function and to give Marinette powers to help deal with Joker.

  • Calling the Old Man Out: Adrien to Gabriel over the latter's actions as Hawk Moth.
  • Canon Welding: In the universe of the story, one of the previous users of the Ladybug Miraculous was Hippolyta.
  • Dark Fic: Tonally, this is more akin to the Batman: Arkham Series, the DC Extended Universe, or the Ladybug PV than the Miraculous cartoon proper, the DC Animated Universe, and some of the other DC products as it features people dying or getting seriously hurt over the course of the story.
  • Death by Adaptation: Chloe and Gabriel do not survive the story.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Upon witnessing Gabriel's treatment of Nooroo, the Joker accuses the former of making him "look kind and gentle in comparison".
  • Eviler Than Thou: Nooroo considers the Joker "even worse than Gabriel".
  • Innocence Lost: Over the course of the story, Marinette and Adrien see one of their classmates and the latter's father die, and the Joker threaten all of reality.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • The Joker here is mentioned as having scrawled "Hahaha, joke's on you" on Jason Todd's body.
      • He also betrays Hawk Moth, and murders him to become something akin to Emperor Joker.
    • While not intentional, akumatized!Bane does match his description in The Batman.
    • While a Take That!, Alfred does wish that Bruce doesn't have a son that matches Damian Wayne's description.
  • Not His Sled: The authors have said that should Queen B appear, it wouldn't be Chloe because of her death here.
  • Patchwork Fic: Regarding the DC side of the story, it uses elements of various DC productions, including the DC Extended Universe (Metropolis and Gotham City as Twin Cities, and the Joker having scrawled "Hahaha, joke's on you" on Jason Todd's corpse), the Batman: Arkham Series (Quincy Sharp being in charge of Arkham), and the pre-New 52 universe (the Joker referring to Billy Batson's alter ego as "Captain Marvel").
  • The Reveal: After taking the fight to Hawk Moth and the Joker, Adrien learns that Hawk Moth is his father Gabriel. Marinette then reveals her true identity to Adrien to comfort him after this and Bruce reveals himself when he realizes Joker and Gabriel are heading to Gotham.
  • Reality Warper: The Joker after getting his hands on Marinette and Adrien's Miraculouses.
  • Sequel Hook: The search for Adrien's mother.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: At one point, Hawk Moth attempts to akumatize Batman after dealing with the Riddler, but Batman fends it off.
  • The Starscream: The Joker kills Hawk Moth to take Marinette and Adrien's Miraculouses for himself.
  • Strange Minds Think Alike: Both the Riddler and the Joker initially assume Cat Noir is Catwoman's son.
  • Superman Stays Out of Gotham: The Joker invokes it while convincing Gabriel to come to Gotham with him. He says Batman wouldn't let Superman come after him.
  • Take That!:
    • At one point, Alfred wishes that Bruce doesn't have a son whose description that matches Damian Wayne. Anyone who follows both authors on DeviantArt will tell you that they despise Damian.
    • During the Joker's introduction, he's channel-surfing, during which he takes a potshot at the Marvel Cinematic Universe, something that, again, the authors on DeviantArt made clear they don't like.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Chloe decides to ignore the advice to the man who deals with the Riddler on a regular basis when he realizes that the Riddler rigged the cell phones of Marinette and Adrien's classmates with bombs. Naturally, this results in Chloe dying.
  • Villain Team-Up: The Joker, Hawk Moth, and the Riddler.
  • Would Hurt a Child: The Joker's infamous killing of Jason Todd is mentioned in-story and during the course of it, the Joker tried to spray Ladybug with acid when they first met, there's the Villain Team-Up kidnapping Marinette and Adrien's classmates, which results in Chloe's death. Furthermore, part of Adrien's Calling the Old Man Out is mentioning Gabriel akumatizing Manon and the Joker rips Marinette's earrings off her ears to get them.
