We must find Nooroo and his Miraculous. If it has gotten into the wrong hands, there's no telling what evil will come upon the world!

The Butterfly Miraculous, also called the Moth Miraculous, is a brooch that, whenever Nooroo inhabits it, transforms the wearer into a butterfly-themed superhero with the power of Transmission.

To activate the brooch, the user must speak the transformation phrase: "Dark Wings Rise". To deactivate the brooch, the user must speak the detransformation phrase: "Dark Wings Fall".

The brooch is currently owned by Gabriel Agreste, who uses it to transform into Hawk Moth for evil purposes — specifically, creating supervillains who attempt to steal Ladybug's and Cat Noir's Miraculouses.


When not transformed, the brooch is oval-shaped and its front is purple. It opens up like a locket, in which an image can be placed. The edges of the brooch and the back of the front part are gray metal, some of it branching out on the outer area of the front of the brooch.

The Butterfly Miraculous glows whenever someone is feeling negative emotions. When Nooroo inhabits the Miraculous, it becomes a dark purple button, with four light pink strands of fabric coming out from it, making it resemble a butterfly or moth.

Akumatization is the Butterfly Miraculous's superpower. The wielder can energize a butterfly, which turns it black and into an akuma, to be sent to possess an object of the person.[1] Then, the Butterfly Miraculous holder is able to communicate with the person to offer him or her powers. Once they accept, they transform into a super being or amplify their powers. Butterfly Miraculous holders can akumatize themselves; to do so, however, they need to first create an akuma and then give up the possession of their Miraculous.

In addition, the wielder can telepathically connect to the akumatized person to talk with them and perceive what that person perceives.[2] If the akumatized person is using their powers wrongly or not the way the holder wants them to, the holder can cause pain to the akumatized person by controlling the person's body to a certain extent or take away their powers.[3]

Even when disguised, the Butterfly Miraculous grants its wielder the ability to sense emotions in order to precisely pinpoint a targeted person's identity. Able to sense various people and their emotions, the wielder usually targets a person with the strongest emotions for the best manipulation.[4] [2]
