This article is about a Miraculous tool. This article is related to the Butterfly Miraculous.

The Cane is the tool of the Butterfly Miraculous.

The current owner of the cane is Gabriel Agreste, who uses it as the villain Hawk Moth.


The cane is dark indigo and smooth. There is a round stone with black lines within a cylinder on top. There is also a silver sword inside the cane, with the round stone and cylinder being its hilt and pommel. The cane is roughly half as tall as it's wielder.

The cane contains a hidden blade, making it a swordstick for combat, as shown in "Robostus". The blade is sharp enough to slice a missile cleanly in half. It can also be wielded as a blunt melee weapon.

The stone on the cane can hold an akuma if its object is destroyed, but the akuma isn't purified, as Hawk Moth does with the Akuma used for Ivan Bruel in "Ladybug & Cat Noir (Origins - Part 1)". Once the original victim is vulnerable again, as seen with Ivan in the next episode, the wielder releases the akuma.

Like all Miraculous tools, the cane is virtually indestructible. So far, only Cataclysm has been shown to be capable of damaging or destroying it.

In "Catalyst", the cane serves as Hawk Moth's power source after receiving enhancement from Catalyst. With it, he can turn butterflies into akumas by tapping them with it, summoning infinite amounts of akumas seemingly out of nowhere and directing his Scarlet Army by raising it. Once it is destroyed, however, the scarlet akumas revert to normal butterflies.

In "Backwarder", it is revealed that the cane has the power to keep the butterflies that Hawk Moth uses to create his akumas.

In "Miraculer", it’s revealed that the cane can be used as an intercom by opening the stone at the top.

In "Cat Blanc", it is revealed that the cane can be summoned to the wielder's hand if they lose it, though only if they are in relatively close proximity to the cane itself.
