|“||And when it comes to luring superheroes, what could be better than creating supervillains?||”|
Whenever a person has strong negative emotions, such as anger, upset-ness, frustration, jealousy, fear, sadness, humiliation, dedication, tearful, tragic, grumpy, disappointment, boredom, guilt, betrayal, misfortune, despair, heartbroken and misery, Hawk Moth senses it from his lair and charges a butterfly with Miraculous magic, transforming it into an Akuma. The Akuma then flies away from Hawk Moth’s lair to the targeted person and possesses an important object that belongs to the person.
Once the object is possessed, it immediately creates a telepathic link between Hawk Moth and the other person, allowing them to communicate through a butterfly-shaped light mask that appears in front of Hawk Moth’s and the victim’s faces. Also, in that moment, the area around the person’s eyes darkens to a darker shade of moderate vermilion.
Once the connection is established, Hawk Moth gives them a new name for their supervillain identity and explains to the person that he’ll give them the ability to accomplish their goals if, in return, the person will retrieve the Ladybug Miraculous and Cat Miraculous from Ladybug and Cat Noir.
When the person agrees, a dark purple ether appears from the possessed object and surrounds the person. Once it recedes, it reveals the victim has transformed into a supervillain. If Hawk Moth needs to telepathically talk with them again, his light mask will reappear on both Hawk Moth and the villain, unless an amok infects said villain with an akuma, or if the Butterfly Holder fuses with the Peacock miraculous and releases either Akuma or Amok.
Every villain, after being corrupted, remembers the cause of their distress and the person who caused it, so they usually try to get revenge. Additionally, some villains, namely Copycat, the Evillustrator, Horrificator, Stoneheart, Syren, Backwarder, Silencer and Oni-Chan remember the people whom they have romantic feelings for (Ladybug, Marinette (Evillustrator and Silencer), Ivan Bruel, Mylène Haprèle, Lê Chiến Kim, Wang Fu and Adrien respectively) and still care for them while transformed.
Hawk Moth can’t mind control his villains, psychologically manipulating them instead. He can’t read their minds either, however he can see through their eyes and sense their feelings, allowing him to see and feel what they do. If he needs to, Hawk Moth can control their bodies for a brief amount of time in order to inflict pain on them until they agree to do as he commands.
Hawk Moth can revoke the Akuma, removing the villain’s powers. Sometimes he also uses this as a threat against his victims to keep them on task.
As seen in “Robostus”, any sentient creature with emotions can be Akumatized. For example, the robot Markov is Akumatized in the aforementioned episode, and the infant August is Akumatized in “Gigantitan”, although since he was a baby, he couldn’t really understand Hawk Moth.
Sometimes, other living things or beings are indirectly transformed with the main victim, such as Fang changing into a dragon in “Guitar Villain” when Jagged Stone is Akumatized, and Albert becoming a far more advanced AI in “The Dark Owl” when Mr. Damocles is Akumatized. Inanimate objects that are not the Akumatized object can change because of the victim’s Akumatization, such as Roger Raincomprix’s car transforming in “Rogercop” and a whole train in "Startrain".
In “Startrain”, it’s revealed that the mental connection is dependent on proximity. If the Butterfly Miraculous holder and the Akumatized person are too far away from each other, the communication can’t be established, and Hawk Moth can’t control the Akumatized person or revoke the Akuma.
Rarely, it is possible for someone with extreme willpower to resist or even overcome Hawk Moth’s influence; Miss Bustier (in “Zombizou”), Chloé Bourgeois (in “Miraculer”), Cat Noir (in “Cat Blanc”), Luka Couffaine (in “Truth”), Alya Césaire (in “Gang of Secrets”) and Nino Lahiffe (in “Rocketear”) have been shown doing so; Miss Bustier, Cat Noir and Luka were able to fight back against the Akumatization and took longer to succumb than most people. Meanwhile Chloé was able to reject an Akuma completely, and Alya and Nino are currently the only people known to ever completely break free of the Akumatization after already being transformed into an Akumatized villian.
As shown in “Félix”, Hawk Moth can Akumatize more than one person at once just with one Akuma, as long as the victims hold onto an object which the Akuma enters or, as shown in “Gang of Secrets”, as long as each person has an emotional link to the object, Hawk Moth/Shadow Moth can akumatize as many people as he wants with just one Akuma, even if only one person holds the object.
An Akumatized villain has an appearance and abilities that relate to their infected object, occupation, circumstances, and/or interests. For example, because of Xavier Ramier’s love of pigeons and his possessed object being a bird call, he becomes Mr. Pigeon, a villain with a suit based off of pigeons and the ability to command pigeons. It appears that the powers come with all the knowledge and muscle memory the Akumatizated victim needs in order to use the powers effectively.
Aside from their superpowers, Akumatized supervillains have enhanced strength, durability, agility and fighting skills. For example, Lady Wifi manages to pin down Cat Noir when they are both disarmed, and Reflekta is able to jump long distances.
Because of Hawk Moth’s and the villain’s mental connection, the villain can sense the location of Hawk Moth’s lair if they want to find him, as seen in “Robostus” and “The Dark Owl”.
In “Timetagger”, it is shown that Akumatized villains can communicate directly with the Butterfly Miraculous holder, even if they are not the one who Akumatized them initially, as seen with the titular villain who came from the future and was Akumatized by a future Hawk Moth and the same goes for a sentimonster.
In order to defeat an Akumatized villain, one must break the object containing the Akuma. Once the Akumatized object is broken, the villain collapses. The Akuma will be released, and the Akumatized supervillain will de-transform back into their normal self.
- If the Akuma is not captured, it will multiply, and the clones will possess any random people they come across. The people will be transformed into physical duplicates of the villain; the duplicates will be frozen in time like statues until the original’s emotions become negative again and is re-Akumatized. Once the original becomes a villain again, the duplicates will come to life and serve as the original’s personal army. It is currently unknown if there is any way to revert the duplicates back to normal without the original being re-Akumatized and purified.
After turning back to normal, those who are transformed into villains will have little to no memory of what happened while they were transformed (like a dream that can’t be remembered), though, in some cases, they can remember at least part of what had happened (like Alya and Nino, who remembered their actions as Oblivio). However, those who volunteered to be Akumatized will retain clear memories of their actions, examples being Gabriel Agreste (“The Collector”), Lila Rossi (“Volpina” and “Chameleon”), Nathalie Sancouer (“Mayura") and Chloé Bourgeois (“Miracle Queen”).
It’s possible for an akumatized villain to free themselves from akumatization, but that requires a great deal of willpower and a whole lot of strength. The villain also must comply with the Butterfly Miraculous Holder.

- Many of the supervillains’ face masks, such as those of Stormy Weather, Lady Wifi, and the Evillustrator, resemble the shape of a butterfly, most likely in reference to the Akumas. Similarly, the four eyeholes in Darkblade’s helmet resemble the four wings of a butterfly.
- When an Akuma infects the object of the new villain and the light mask appears around their face, the darkened area is almost always an indication of the shape of their mask.
- There are some cases in which a villain reappears or gets Akumatized in an irregular situation more than once.
- In “Timebreaker”, both Alixs from two different timelines get Akumatized.
- In “The Puppeteer”, the Puppeteer uses her powers to bring back Lady Wifi, the Evillustrator, and Rogercop.
- According to Hawk Moth, it is implied that Lila may return as an Akumatized villain due to her not forgiving Ladybug in “Volpina”.
- This occurs in “Catalyst”, when Lila is encouraged because of her anger towards Ladybug, with the tipping point being Gabriel Agreste calling Volpina a copycat.
- This happens a third time in “Chameleon”, when Lila actively takes the Akuma and infects herself to become the titular villain after Adrien declines her romantic affections until she stops her lies. At the end of the episode, she is still angry at Ladybug, implying further future Akumatizations.
- In “Gamer 2.0”, Gamer brings back almost all the akumatized villains that were akumatized before he was into his life-sized game.
- In “The Puppeteer 2", the Puppeteer uses her powers to bring to life statues of some of the past Akumatized villains.
- After Hawk Moth gives his victims their new names, they accept them and discard their former names until they are defeated.
- However in "Truth", after Jagged asks who Luka is, he replies with "I am Luka Couffaine" instead of "I am Truth".
- So far, only Stoneheart’s akuma was mutilplied and akumatized others into Stonehearts in The Origins Story.
- Most of the villains are seen near Marinette and/or Adrien shortly before the Akuma infects them.
- In most cases, the villains usually get what they want when they are transformed or after they are defeated. However, this is not always the case.
- According to Thomas Astruc at San Diego Comic-Con 2016, non-humans such as Animals and Kwamis can be Akumatized.
- In “Robostus”, it is shown that emotionally-aware robots can be Akumatized, when it happens to Markov, Max Kanté’s robot.
- In “Queen Wasp”, it’s shown that even Miraculous holders can be Akumatized and their Miraculouses can be also be infected by an Akuma.
- In “Feast”, it’s revealed that sentimonsters can be akumatized too.
- Various animals and objects that are not infected by the Akuma can be transformed indirectly with the Akumatized villain.
- Roger Raincomprix’s police car transforms with him, its appearance changing and it becoming able to fly. It also gains an autodrive function.
- When Jagged Stone turns into Guitar Villain, his pet Crocodile Fang is transformed into a Dragon.
- Santa Claus’s horses turn into reindeer, and his sleigh changes its appearance as well, gaining the ability to fly.
- Albert is also Akumatized alongside Mr. Damocles as his monitor was the Akumatized object; Albert gains a human face, as opposed to his normal cartoon appearance.
- Anarka Couffaine’s boat transforms into an indestructible sentient ship that obeys Captain Hardrock’s commands and can fire cannonball-shaped speakers and chain anyone.
- Gina Dupain’s motorbike changed its appearance and gained the ability to fly when she was Akumatized into Befana.
- The Claudie Kanté-driven train gains a new color scheme on both the inside and outside and the ability to fly into space. The service drones inside also become able to float and fire lasers.
- Tomoe Tsurugi’s car is fused with her own body so she can become Ikari Gozen and trap her victims.
- Chloé’s limousine becomes Queen Banana’s flying go-kart that can shoot bananas.
- According to Nooroo, the Butterfly Miraculous is meant to create superheroes rather than supervillains.
- While Hawk Moth can force his victims to focus on getting Ladybug’s and Cat Noir’s Miraculouses by threatening to remove their powers or causing them pain, his ability is supposed to be used to keep Akumatized heroes from becoming evil.
- Several times, however, Akumatized villains would identify themselves as heroes, such as Dark Owl. Some villains call themselves heroes as a ruse, such as Volpina.
- A recurring element is people being Akumatized into supervillain versions of heroes, such as Copycat, Antibug, Volpina, Queen Wasp, Rena Rage, Shell Shock, Cat Blanc, and Miracle Queen.
- Thomas Astruc noted that Marinette would be a hard person to Akumatize as she is an optimistic person.
- However, Marinette was very close to getting Akumatized in “Zombizou” and “Chameleon”, but her emotions became positive and the Akuma flew away.
- He also noted that Adrien has not yet been Akumatized because he is so used to disappointment.
- In “Riposte”, “Gigantitan”, “Zombizou”, “Catalyst”, “Mayura” and “Truth”, the Akuma is seen by Marinette and/or Adrien before the victim is Akumatized.
- Many previous Akumatized villains are re-Akumatized during the “Heroes’ Day” special in Season 2.
- As shown in “Sapotis”, “Oblivio”, “Félix” and “Heart Hunter”, two or more people can be Akumatized from a single Akuma and/or object, if they’re both holding the same object, and feeling the same emotion.
- Also in “Gang of Secrets”, multiple people can be akumatized if the akumatized object is passed around between them, while they are feeling negative emotions, before the akuma enters it, even if only one person holds it at the moment of contact.
- Most of the Akumatized villains’ powers are based on their hobbies or interests. For example, Nathaniel’s hobby is drawing whilst the Evillustrator’s power is making his drawings come to life, or Kagami being a fencer, and her having a sword as Riposte and Oni-Chan.
- "Sentibubbler" is the only episode so far that doesn't have an akumatized villain.
- So far, Christmaster and Reflekta in “Guiltrip” are the only akumatized villains to be willingly de-akumatized.
- However, Christmaster gave Ladybug his object, while Reflekta didn’t show any will to fight back.
- During the Heroes’ Day special, the scarlet Akumas instantly transform civilians without Hawk Moth directly talking to them like the normal purple Akumas do.
- However, Scarlet Moth gave Style Queen, Malediktator and Despair Bear their powers back after talking to them, although they didn’t show any kind of awareness that they are being akumatized.
