They say the future is unpredictable. But there are those who prove to be above such limits. Marinette Agreste goes back in time into her thirteen year old self to save her loved ones.
Reboot provides examples of:
- Bad Future: At some point Gabriel (whom Marinette learns the secret identity of) finally gets the ladybug and cat miraculouses and wishes for the return of his wife, setting off a chain reaction that leads to The End of the World as We Know It. It is so serious that Master Fu sends Marinettes soul back in time into her thirteen year-old self despite how dangerous time magic can be.
- Butterfly of Doom: Somehow, Marinette's alterations to the timeline have led to Adrien not escaping to their school like in the original timeline, instead being sent to a boarding school across town.
- For Want of a Nail: Since Marinette has already experienced everything before, of course things turn out differently.
- Since she already knew how to use her powers before, she did not make the mistake of overlooking Stoneheart's alums, preventing him becoming akumatized a second time. Even more so, she recommends to Ivan to write Mylene a letter instead of singing to her, preventing further emotional fallout.
- Married in the Future: in the Bad Future, Marinette had since learned of Chat Noir's secret identity and eventually married him.
- Peggy Sue: Marinette is sent back in time by Master Fu to prevent the The End of the World as We Know It, specifically into the body of her thirteen year-old self the morning she gains her miraculous.
- Trigger Phrase: Master Fu gave Marinette a series of words to tell his younger self to let him know that he sent her back in time.Master Fu: If you are from the future, what's the password?
Marinette: Veni. Vidi. Amavi.
