Minor Characters


  • Part of this episode was read during Brazilian Miraculous Day 2021 by voice actors.[3]
  • This is the third episode named after a collection of villains, following "Gang of Secrets" and "Crocoduel".
    • However, this is the fifth time a group of villains is formed, following the Scarlet Army (scarlet villains), the Punishers Trio (Lady Wifi, Reflekta and Princess Fragrance), the Gang of Secrets (Lady Wifi, Reflekta, Princess Fragrance, Timebreaker and Horrificator) and Crocoduel (Guitar Villain and Captain Hardrock).
  • Tom, Gina and Sabine will be akumatized for the second time, after "Weredad", "Befana" and "Qilin", respectively, returning as their former akumatized form, while Rolland will be akumatized for the third time, after "Bakerix" and "Simpleman", who will return as Bakerix
    • This episode marks the first and second times an akumatized form introduced in Season 3 is reakumatized.
    • This also marks the first time an akumatized form introduced in Season 4 is reakumatized.
  • In this episode, Shadow Moth is able to find a way to break through the protection given by Ladybug's Magical Charms and destroy them, allowing him to reakumatize Rolland Dupain and Sabine Cheng, despite that they receive the Magical Charms in "Simpleman" and "Qilin".
  • This is the first time Tikki uses her power without a holder. Her Lucky Charm creates a gigantic galette in the sky.
  • The scenes of the Montparnasse Tower and a bridge cracking under the weight of the galette are similar to some from "Style Queen".
  • This is the first time Astrocat appears outside of the specials.
  • This is the sixth time where a kwami uses its powers without its owner following Plagg in "Style Queen" and "Catalyst", Trixx in "Gang of Secrets" and Kaalki in "Sole Crusher" and "Optigami".
  • According to Plagg, over 1000 years ago, Tikki went out of control with chocolate causing her to use her powers to make chocolate mousse to rain from the sky for several weeks.
