|“||The kid has a point! What if an akumatized villain or a sentimonster shows up? I have a bad feeling about this. You go, I'll keep watch.||”|
—Barkk, "Furious Fu"
Barkk is 10 centimeters (or 4 inches) tall and is light brown with a white mark around her mouth, between her eyes, and on her chest. She has dark grayish cyan eyes, drop ears, a whisker on her forehead, and a pink tongue. She also has a tail that curves upwards.
Barkk is protective, dutiful and obedient as she kept a lookout for trouble and agreed with Marinette's reasoning of someone needing to stay and guard the box. She also has very good instincts as she sensed something terrible was going to happen and was right when Su-Han arrived for the Miracle Box.
On occasion, Barkk is known to be playful as she joined in playing with one of Marinette's designer hats with her fellow kwamis.
Barkk can fly, levitate, and phase through solid objects. She can also carry objects that are larger and/or heavier than herself.
As a kwami, Barkk is able to transform the holder of the Dog Miraculous into a dog-themed superhero, although it is currently unknown what the transformation looks like or what powers the transformed person gains.
Before Season 2
Barkk came into existence when the concept connected to her came into existence. Before the Miraculous jewels were created, she and the other kwamis traveled all over the universe unable to interact with humans. Then, thousands of years later, a mage created the Miraculouses. When its Miraculous was not being worn, Barkk was dormant in the Dog Miraculous, which was stored inside the Miracle Box.
During Season 2, Barkk was dormant in the Dog Miraculous.
In "Sandboy", Barkk was celebrating Nooroo's birthday in the Miracle Box with the other kwamis and she was excited when Tikki and Plagg arrived. She marveled at the gift Tikki brought, a marker that she thought was a paintbrush, and she played with the other kwamis. When it came the time to find Nooroo, Barkk got into position in an effort to contact him, but the kwamis contacted his wielder instead. Upon hearing him, they shuddered at the thought of being his slave and they prevented him from discovering their location by cutting off the connection. They realized that if they contacted Nooroo's wielder, rather than Nooroo, then someone must have been akumatized and that Tikki and Plagg's wielders would be in danger.
During Season 3, Barkk was dormant in the Dog Miraculous.
In "Kwamibuster", she was activated along with her kwami brothers and sisters to help Multimouse enact her plan to rescue Tikki and Plagg. During the confrontation, Barkk was one of the few kwamis captured but was set free with the help of Multinoir. After Kwamibuster's defeat, She and the others cheered for Marinette as their plan was a success and returned to Miracle Box.
In "Miracle Queen", she was activated alongside Stompp, Roaar, Ziggy, Daizzi, Mullo, Orikko, and Fluff, by Queen Bee with the intent to use them against Ladybug and Cat Noir. After being commanded to transform her, they collectively all withheld their transformation phrases. Upon hearing Master Fu renounce his title, they protest, but Master Fu does so anyway, resulting in the Miracle Box changing shape and form. After failing to escape, Queen Bee throws off their respective Miraculouses, and they, alongside their kwamis, are returned to the Miracle Box by Ladybug.
In "Truth", Barkk was accidentally released from the Miracle Box when Marinette tried to figure it out in her eagerness explored Marinette's room. During a video call on her new guardian's computer, she and the others surrounded the screen in amazement. When Marinette leaves for her date with Luka she and her siblings hid with the Miracle Box. Upon hearing the titular villain enter the room she left to warn the others. After the Truth's defeat, Barkk and the others saw that Marinette was sad about breaking up with Luka to the point of tears, she didn't know exactly how to help but joined with her siblings in giving their new guardian a group hug.
In "Gang of Secrets", Barkk was seen talking with the other kwamis until their guardian arrives home. Later, hears Marinette voiced her distress about being condemned to a life of secrets and lies forever because of her alter ego. When they hear someone coming the kwamis hide in the Miracle Box upon seen Trixx activate her powers Barkk along with Wayzz advised him not to do it but didn't have a choice. Seeing her guardian voice concerns about what Trixx did but when his brother eased her worries Barkk along with Wayzz didn't look easily convinced. After the Gang of Secrets had been defeated Barkk and the others look on as Marinette unveils her secret to Alya.
In "Mr. Pigeon 72", she was playing along with Roaar in one of Marinette's designer hats until they were joined by their other siblings. Then, Barkk joined in helping clean up Marinette's room.
In "Furious Fu", hearing that Master Fu was returning, Barkk was the only one who didn’t express the urge to see her former master accepting Marinette as her new guardian. She understood, Marinette's reasoning and when her new guardian voiced concerns about leaving the Miracle Box unguarded volunteering to stay behind feeling something bad was going to happen. Soon she was in Su-Han's grip warning the group she was right that Su-Han had returned to reclaim the box as he was the previous guardian before Master Fu's incident and with Su-Han's strictness she sadly returned to the box. After seeing Ladybug's valiant actions against the titular villain, Su-Han realized that Master Fu's choice wasn't so bad allowing her and the others to stay with Marinette.
In "Crocoduel", Barkk and the others were listening to Alya trying to convince Marinette to come to the Couffaine Twins' birthday party and to also talk to Luka.
In "Optigami", while in the Miracle Box; Barkk and the others received a call from Marinette about her needing Kaalki's help in code. Noticing that the call ended they believe she call again.
In "Hack-San", Barkk and the kwamis were aware that Marinette was leaving for a trip to London, but heard their guardian making an excuse to stay. Not wanting to leave Paris unguarded and when Barkk heard that Marinette pretend to break her leg. Barkk was shocked but was informed by Longg about that trick never working especially if parents want to go on vacation.
In "Simpleman", Barkk along with Sass and Ziggy were scared as Manon tried to open the sewing box and felt very dizzy when Manon, Ella and Etta shook it.
In "Dearest Family", after Tikki ate the pieces of galette, Marinette brought for them, the kwamis quickly realized what she did. Barkk huddled together with others when they realized the danger Tikki's hunger for candy can represent, despite the kwami of Creation refusal at that. When Tikki and Marinette the kwamis flew around in a panic then was given permission by Sass along with Wayzz to watch over Tikki. Shortly after she watched Marinette, realize that Sass' warning was real and transforms to stop Tikki only to be affected by his sibling's hunger, which scared her.
Hearing a commotion downstairs, Barkk and the others were commanded to hide. After Ladybug saved her family Daizzi and the kwamis see her return with pieces of galette for them. Despite that they were still nervous regarding Tikki, until Marinette ensured them that Tikki will control herself and the kwamis ate the pieces of galette happily.
