André has been akumatized. André has been akumatized into a scarlet akumatized villain.
This article is about the ice cream vendor. You may be looking for another André.

My dear Marinette, being an ice cream man isn't a job; I used to have a job. Every morning, I would wake up and do something I didn't like doing. The only enjoyable moment for my day was when I would come home and concoct ice cream flavors that suited my mood. Until one day, in the same way that ice cream enchanted my daily life, I wondered if my true calling would be to try and enchant other people's lives, too! That's when the truly successful career is: a blend of flavors of what you can do, what you love to do, and what you can bring to others!

—André, "Wishmaker"

André is an ice cream vendor who lives in Paris.

In "Glaciator", after he fails to persuade Marinette to get another ice cream, he is akumatized by Hawk Moth into Glaciator, an ice cream supervillain.[3]

In "Glaciator 2", when he is convinced that Ladybug and Cat Noir are made for each other and Ladybug denies it, André is re-akumatized by Shadow Moth into Glaciator. Later in the same episode, after coming to believe that Marinette and Cat Noir are dating, much to his dismay, André is akumatized again into Glaciator. He also receives a Magical Charm from Ladybug that prevents him from being akumatized again.

Appearance

Physical appearance

André is stout, standing at a short height, with short brown hair, roesish black eyes, and a brown mustache.

Civilian attire

He wears a short-sleeved white top with dark blue stripes, dark gray pants, and shoes. He also wears a dark blue beret on his head, a thin red scarf around his neck which he ties at the front, and a blue apron.

As Glaciator

He resembles a snowman made of ice cream, with a large, round head with an ice-cream-cone-shaped nose, a mouth made of deep brown chocolate chips, brilliant crimson eyes, and a red cherry on top of his head. His body is white overall, with two more cherries down the front like buttons, as well as one on each knee. He has a dark brown coating on his upper body resembling fudge sauce, and his arms have round pink hands which have red strawberry pieces embedded in them.

Personality

André is friendly, jovial, and good-natured. He warmly talks with his customers, and he is enthusiastic about making ice cream. When his ice cream is ruined, although upsetting to him, he takes it as best he can, kindly thanking Cat Noir for complimenting his ice cream despite him crashing into a container of ice cream and accidentally using Cataclysm on a serving he just prepared. He is a strong believer in the power of love, and he doesn't boast about how his ice cream brings couples together.

He is still a firm believer of Ladybug and Cat Noir being in love to the point of being stubborn so much so that he believes that the heroes can't be in love with someone else. Like most people in Paris, he doesn't fully understand why they can't be in love.

As Glaciator, André is stern in proving to Marinette that his ice cream can bring people together as he retains his soft spot for couples, refusing to attack them.

Abilities

As a civilian

André is experienced at making and decorating ice cream, using various flavors and presentations. He is also skilled in sales, knowing how to run his business and make a profit, along with being aware of good places to go with his ice cream cart and sell his ice cream to customers.

As Glaciator

He is able to transform people into ice cream. Over time, the people who are transformed into ice cream melt. He also shoots multiple scoops of ice cream from his hands and has amazing strength, being able to kick a car many yards away.

Relationships

Marinette Dupain-Cheng/Ladybug

André notices that Marinette seems depress when she visits his ice cream cart with her friends and attempts to cheer her up with some of his ice cream, telling her that if she eats it, her love will appear. Though Marinette insists that she doesn't have a love, André knows that this is not true. However, he becomes upset when Marinette rejects his ice cream and denies that there is anything magical about it, leading to his akumatization. As Glaciator, he primarily targets Marinette, wanting to prove to her that his ice cream truly is the best. However, after being deakumatized, he bears no resentment towards her and happily gives her some ice cream the following day.

In "Glaciator 2", like everyone else he doesn't know that Marinette is the hero behind the mask, upon seeing her with Cat Noir. Andre mistakenly believes they were a couple (but actually they were friends.) As his akumatized alter ego, he attacked them still believing the heroes were meant to be.

Like everyone else in Paris, Andre shows great admiration for the heroine and truly believes that Ladybug and Cat Noir are meant to be. When as Glaciator, he tries to steal her miraculous but refused to attack the heroes upon seeing them in love.

Adrien Agreste/Cat Noir

André first encounters Adrien when he visits his ice cream cart and asks if his ice cream is truly magical. When André asks him what he thinks, Adrien replies that you have to believe, pleasing André, who then gives him some ice cream.

Ivan Bruel & Mylène Haprèle

Ivan and Mylène are typical customers of André. When he sees them visit his ice cream cart again, he calls them cute lovebirds.

Trivia

  • On the Miraculous Amino app, Lindalee Rose posted an update about the upcoming San-Diego Comic Con 2017 panel for Miraculous. She noted that "nobody and nothing is safe from being akumatized," and she included an ice cream emotion, referencing Glaciator.[4]
  • Glaciator's design was first revealed in a promotional video for Season 2 from TFOU.[3]
  • André is one of the few akumatized villains who do not get an outfit change when akumatized. That is if his ice cream armor isn't considered as an outfit change though.
  • Glaciator reappears in the two-part special event "Heroes' Day".[3]
  • Glaciator appears another time in "Gamer 2.0" for Gamer's powers.
  • Glaciator is a play on "gladiator".
  • In "Wishmaker", it was revealed that Andre originally used to work at an office, and hated every second of it. It was when he was making ice cream treats after coming home to pick up his mood that he decided to follow his passion and become an ice cream man.

André's Magical Charm.

  • Glaciator is the first, and so far only, villain from Season 2 to have two episodes named after himself.
    • He's also the first in this category to not be from Season 1.
  • Glaciator is the only villain to be the titular villain of two episodes ("Glaciator" and "Glaciator 2"), and not be part of a group when akumatized, which doesn't have any change in their powers during their second akumatization.
