Snatch his Miraculous, his ring!

Hawk Moth, "Rogercop"

The Cat Miraculous, also known as the Black Cat Miraculous, is a ring that, whenever Plagg inhabits it, transforms the wearer into a black cat-themed superhero with the power of Destruction.

To activate the ring, the user must speak the transformation phrase: "Claws Out". To deactivate the ring, the user must speak the detransformation phrase: "Claws In".

The ring is currently owned by Adrien Agreste, who uses it to transform into Cat Noir. During the events of Kuro Neko, he temporarily took on the new superhero identity of Cat Walker, so he could be a better partner to Ladybug, but later changed back.


In general, the ring has a thick band with a circle surface surrounded by a lining with four pointed diamond shapes on each diagonal side. In charged mode, it is black and a glowing green cat paw print appears in the circle. If a minor uses the miraculous, once they've used Cataclysm, the ring starts running out of power, in which then they make a beeping sound, and each toe of the paw print will disappear one at a time as an indication of how much power and time (one toe is equivalent to one minute) they have left until they change back. This happens until the ring turns completely black, which is how the activated mode of the miraculous looks.

In its camouflage mode, the ring changes color depending on whose possession it's in:

  • In the possession of Adrien Agreste, it is silver and the circle is blank.
    • When Cat Noir was akumatized into Cat Blanc, the ring became pure white, with the inner circle being blank.[1]
  • When worn by Marinette Dupain-Cheng, the ring is rose gold/grayish amaranth and the circle is blank. [2]
  • When Gabriel Agreste posesses the ring, it is black and the circle is blank, just like the activated version of the Cat Miraculous. [3]

The Cat Miraculous grants its wielder incredible powers of superhuman speed, endurance, night vision, and strength. Its special weapon is a staff, which can be utilized as both a weapon and a communicator to other heroes. Its special superpower is Cataclysm, which gives the user the ability to damage or destroy an object, such as structures, akumas' hiding places, or metal bars. It also gives the power of night vision to its user. As long as the superpower isn't used, the wielder can remain transformed indefinitely. However, as soon as the superpower is used, the wielder's Miraculous weakens and the transformation usually wears off in about five minutes.[4] The ring also has the ability to give the wielder the costume they truly desire.

If the Ladybug Miraculous and the Cat Miraculous are used together while also using a special invocation, the holder will achieve ultimate power. The person wielding them can make a wish that can alter reality. However, because the universe must maintain balance, every action has a reaction; for instance, a wish to become human would result in someone losing their humanity.


After Plagg consumes one of several special potions, or a food made with one, and the wielder transforms, they are able to unlock a power-up, an additional specific ability granted by each potion. So far, only seven potions have been shown, each with a unique color:

  • The green potion transforms Plagg into "Aqua-Plagg" and grants the wielder the ability to breathe underwater and improves their swimming capability with flippers on the feet.
  • The light blue potion transforms Plagg into "Plagg Glacier" and grants the wielder the ability to move on the ice with ice skates on their feet.
  • The purple potion transforms Plagg into unknown space forms and grants the wielder the ability to move freely and breathe in high altitudes and space.
  • A red potion that grants unknown powers.
  • A yellow potion that grants unknown powers.
  • An orange potion that grants unknown powers.
  • A pink-peach potion that grants unknown powers.

Comics and books



  • In the theme song, the Cat Miraculous resides in the raised center of the Miracle Box with the Ladybug Miraculous, both their sections creating a yin-yang symbol inside the box.
    • The Cat Miraculous is in the yang section (like in every yin-yang symbol there’s also some of each in the other). Some of the things that yang represents are heat, light, dominance, and logic.
  • Black cats are a symbol of bad luck, although they do symbolize good luck in some countries, such as ancient Egypt.

    Félix wearing the cat ring.

  • The ring can fall off while the user is transformed, which causes the user to revert back to normal.
  • In the original Ladybug PV, the ring has a very different design. It is entirely black with a cat face, the cat having green jewels as eyes and a red diamond-shaped jewel on its forehead.
    • After decoding the spellbook under the Cat Miraculous page, one of the words translates to ruby which is one of the jewels in the PV version of the ring.
    • Also, during the time the PV was produced and before the Miraculous theme was introduced, the ring would bring bad luck to its holder — even when he or she is not transformed. Additionally, the ring can't be removed unless a special requirement is fulfilled, as how Félix Agreste would be able to only if Ladybug kissed him.[5]
  • In "Volpina", Cat Noir's legacy also dates all the way back to Ancient China.
  • According to the official Miraculous Ladybug Tumblr blog, there will be more holders of the Cat Miraculous revealed.[6]
    • As in Hei Mao in "Volpina" and the Ancient European Cat Miraculous holder in "Feast".
  • If the person possessing the Cat Miraculous used it for evil, it would be "even more than [extremely dangerous]."[7]
  • For a staged battle for Mr. Damocles as the Owl in "The Dark Owl", Marinette creates a fake replica of the Cat Miraculous, which she later uses to trick Mr. Damocles' akumatized form and Hawk Moth.
  • In "Frightningale" Plagg thinks the bell on Adrien's costume is ridiculous, and he points out that such costume is what Adrien really wants deep down.
  • In "Style Queen", since Plagg mentioned having a Miraculous owner for 5000 years it's revealed that Cat Noir's legacy is over 5000 years old.
  • Sometimes the Cat Miraculous is called The Ring of the Black Cat.
  • In "Reflekdoll", after an incident causes a mix up of the miraculous, Marinette Dupain-Cheng uses the Cat Miraculous to turn temporarily into Lady Noire.
  • In "Kwamibuster", in order to defeat the titular villain and to save the kwamis she had captured, Multimouse (Marinette with the Mouse Miraculous) combines the Cat Miraculous with hers, becoming Multinoir.
    • As Lady Noire and Multinoir, Marinette is, so far the first known female to wield the Cat Miraculous.
  • As of "Cat Blanc", the Cat Miraculous is the fourth jewel to be seen in an akumatized form following the Bee, Fox and Turtle Miraculouses.
    • Unlike the other 3 jewels the akuma didn't land inside the ring.
  • It's the third Miraculous used for evil, even if briefly and in an alternative reality, following the Butterfly and the Peacock Miraculouses.
