Luka Couffaine is a character introduced in the second season of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir. He is the older twin brother of Juleka Couffaine and the guitarist of Kitty Section who attracts the attention of Marinette.[8][9][10][11]

In "Silencer", when Bob Roth threatens Marinette after she accuses him of stealing Kitty Section's design for XY's new song, he is akumatized by Hawk Moth into Silencer, a voice-stealing supervillain.

In "Desperada", after Adrien Agreste gives up being Aspik for not being able to help Ladybug against the titular villain for the 25,913th time, she decides to give Luka the Snake Miraculous. When the Miraculous is inhabited by Sass, he becomes Viperion, a snake-themed superhero who helps Ladybug and Cat Noir during "particularly difficult missions" in the third season and beyond.

In "Truth", when Marinette can't tell him where she disappears all the time, Luka is akumatized and amokized by Shadow Moth into Truth, a three-eyed supervillain that forces people to tell the truth and his betrayal forms, Lighteye, a giant floating eye sentimonster.

In "Wishmaker", during the fight against the titular villain, Luka, as Viperion, is able to discover, accidentally, the true identities of both Ladybug and Cat Noir, who got exposed after being affected by the villain's powers. Because of his power to go back in time, the two main heroes are unaware that Luka knows who they are, but Luka still respects them.

After the events of "Strikeback", Luka will temporarily be unable to become Viperion after Hawk Moth manages to steal the Snake Miraculous along with all the others contained in the Chinese Miracle Box from Ladybug's yo-yo.

Appearance

Physical appearance

Luka is a tall, slender teenage boy of fair skin. He has a Roman nose, pale pink lips, luminous vivid cyan eyes, and medium-length black hair that has dyed strong cyan tips.

Civilian attire

His attire includes a white t-shirt with a black Jagged Stone imprint and black jeans ripped at the knee. On his right wrist, he also wears a brown leather bracelet, yellow and orange wristbands, and his fingernails are painted black. He has a grayish cerulean denim jacket with a strong blue elbow-length sleeved hooded cardigan underneath, as well as black high-top converse sneakers with different colored patterns. He wears a black ring with silver outlining on his left index finger and black earrings in his ears.

As Silencer

He has brilliant cobalt blue skin and vivid emerald green eyes and he wears a brilliant purple, vivid yellow, brilliant gold, moderate heliotrope, and black bodysuit with a jagged mouth on his helmet.

As Viperion

He wears a mostly deep green, dark cyan, yellow, brilliant opal, and dark turquoise snake-themed superhero bodysuit, and appears slender and muscular. His suit has a snake-like texture and patterns, complete with fangs on his brilliant opal and turquoise-ish gray mask. His eyes change from cyan to brilliant spring green, and the dyed ends of his hair change to a moderate sea green. Along with this, he seems to wear light pink lipstick. He wears the snake bracelet miraculous on his wrist and carries a lyre as his weapon.

As Truth

He wears a sapphire bluish-black full-bodysuit with a hidden wedge on his feet which covers all of his body with dark grayish cornflower blue accents on the chest, shoulders, and around the eye symbol on both of his knees. He has three pupil-less eyes and they are cornflower bluish-white, and his 3rd eye is on his forehead (similar to Mylène's form of Horrificator) and carries an eye necklace on his chest, the akumatized version of the guitar pick Marinette gave him that he made into a necklace.

Personality

Luka explains that he tends to make more sense with his guitar.

Unlike his sister Juleka, Luka is a calm boy who has a mixed personality of being playful, charming, mature, and flirtatious. He is empathetic at reading people's emotions and expressing them through music. Luka is very kind and generous, especially towards his friends and family, but also to people he just met as he cheers Marinette up shortly after meeting her. Like Adrien, he is also supportive and encouraging towards others like Juleka. Adrien himself describes him as brave, caring, and determined.

Luka seems to be an easygoing and relaxed boy. However, sometimes he can lose his calm if he feels that he and mainly his friends are being wronged, like when Bob Roth stole his band's music, dance, and outfits and claimed them to be XY's. He still maintained a level of cool and only lost it when Bob threatened Marinette. According to her, in "Luka as seen by Marinette", he is very intuitive.

He is also very understanding and patient when he ended his relationship with Marinette despite being sad he decides to wait until her secret was gone. Upon discovering it, in "Wishmaker", aware of the rules and Ladybug's need for secrecy, Luka understood that the city needed Ladybug and Cat Noir.

As Viperion, most of Luka's personality remains the same like his caring and helpfulness. Given his calm disposition, Viperion is focused, observant, and not afraid to give suggestions or ideas to others.

As Silencer, his main goal is to make Bob Roth tell the truth regarding the fact he stole the Kitty Section's song as he takes the voices of anyone that could serve his purposes or get in his way. However, he still retains his care for Marinette, as she was the only person whose voice he spared and he reassured her he would make "justice" for her and Kitty Section.

As Truth, he is shown to be desperate to know Marinette's secret, interrogating anyone that could possibly know it, like her best friends and her parents. He is shown to get frustrated quite easily when they keep telling him a secret he already knows. However, he can prioritize other secrets when they have a much bigger meaning to him, like when he made his mother confess to him who was his father.

Abilities

As a civilian

Luka is excellent at playing his guitar and similar musical instruments and seems to have a specialty for fingerstyle guitar. He is particularly good at creating melodies through people's emotions. He claims to have been playing the guitar since he was a baby. It was also confirmed on Twitter that he can play the violin.

In "Frozer", Luka was shown to be very good at ice skating, as well as fairly strong, lifting Marinette with ease. Luka can also ride a bike, as shown when he was delivering pizzas in "Heart Hunter", and the numerous times he has given Marinette a ride.

As Viperion

Viperion, like the rest of the superheroes, has enhanced capabilities such as speed, agility, and strength, and he is almost invulnerable to physical damage. Like a snake, he also has enhanced senses like hearing, smell, infrared vision, and possibly the ability to feel vibrations but it is yet to be seen.

His special superpower is Second Chance. With this, he marks a moment in time by sliding back the snake head on his Miraculous, and the snake head slowly returns to its place over the course of five minutes. Then, when needed, he slides the snake's head back again, reversing time to the point he marked. This gives him the opportunity to change the outcome of a recent event. He is able to go back to the marked moment as many times as he wants before the snake's head returns to its original position. He proves to be more competent than Adrien at using this ability.

As Silencer

Silencer can steal people's voices by touching their lips with his two fingers and making a shushing motion; the voice will then escape from the person as a jellyfish-like entity. Once their voices are out, he can store them inside his mask, and then he can talk with them using his hands. He can also use more than one voice at a time. If his power is used on a Miraculous holder, he can render them virtually powerless unless he says the invocations are in their place. However, the victims can reclaim their voice if they get the jellyfish-like entity before he does. If his mask is destroyed, all the voices are freed from within it.

As Truth

Truth is able to shoot beams from his 3rd eye on his forehead, which forces people to tell them the truth. Those hit by the beam has bigger sclera, smaller pupils, and white lipstick, similar to the black lipstick worn by the victims of Dark Cupid. Once hit, the victim will have to answer truthfully to any question Truth asks. He has total control over his sentimonster who lets him immobilize anyone he enlightens, allowing Truth to listen to his victim without escape.

Trivia

  • Luka was first revealed in a French synopsis for Season 2 on Le Figaro.[8]
    • He was later revealed to be Juleka Couffaine's older brother in a Brazilian synopsis for Season 2 on O Universo da TV.[10]
  • Lindalee Rose hinted at the possibility that Luka and Juleka's father is Jagged Stone, which is revealed and confirmed in "Truth".
  • His full name means "light of/from the coffin".
    • The name Luka means "light" in Latin.
      • In the Russian dub, his name is changed to Luke.
    • Luka's surname Couffaine is a combination of "couffin" (French for "coffin") and the French suffix "-aine" (meaning "of or from a place"), ultimately meaning "of/from the coffin".
      • All the Couffaine's names so far end with "-ka".
        • However, it is actually a pun, as a matter of fact in French it sounds like "acouphène" which means "tinnitus".
      • When the official Miraculous Ladybug website got updated in September 2020, the official character description has his surname incorrectly spelled as Couphène.[12]
  • Thomas Astruc had originally stated that Luka is approximately two years older than Juleka.[13] He later stated that they changed their mind, and he's Juleka's older twin brother now.[14] However, he is still older than the rest of the main cast as Thomas Astruc revealed that Juleka failed a year of school and thus had to repeat it. At the very least, he and his twin sister are around 15/16.[15]
    • The French tweet (link in the ref) goes and translates as follows: "Je pensais que Luka était plus âgé, mais du coup est ce que Juleka a redoublé?" "I thought Luka was older, does that mean Juleka failed a grade?" (Or more literally, they ask if Juleka repeated.) Astruc replies: "Oui. C'est une redoublante." "Yes. She failed a grade." (Again, more literally, she repeated.) Thus, Luka remains an older age, and Juleka was aged up to match him since it was changed to them being twins.
  • According to Feri González, Luka is a handsome boy, and people "are going to fall in love with him."[16]
    • She also noted that both Luka and Kagami Tsurugi are "charming, rounded characters" who are not limited to roles as alternate love interests.[17]
  • Internationally, Luka debuted in "Captain Hardrock". However, the episode was released out of order and Luka's actual debut in production order was a background appearance in "Frightningale".
  • Viperion was first revealed in concept art shown at the 2018 Comic-Con Experience panel on December 6, 2018.[18]
  • Following Alya Césaire, Nino Lahiffe, Chloé Bourgeois, and Nathalie Sancoeur, he is the fifth person to become a Miraculous holder and akumatized villain, excluding Gabriel Agreste, who akumatized himself.
  • Viperion's name is likely a portmanteau of viper (a family of venomous snakes) and Hyperion, a Titan of Greek mythology associated with the sun and daytime.
    • In Greek mythology, the priestess of the oracle at Delphi was known as Pythia, stemming from the giant snake slain by Apollo (another god of the sun) "in the strength of Hyperion (day)."
      • Apollo is also known to have a lyre.
  • Luka is the second known character to wield the Snake Miraculous, the first being Adrien.
    • He also shows to be a better user for the Miraculous and its power, as Adrien wasn't able to beat Desperada after 25,913 times, while Luka was able to defeat her after 4 times. Although an exact number wasn't directly confirmed, it was definitely in a faster time span in comparison to Adrien's attempts. However, this might also be because Cat Noir was helping Luka while Cat Noir couldn't help Adrien (because they're the same person).
  • Both Hawk Moth (in Party Crasher) and Ladybug (in Miracle Queen) have said that Viperion is the most difficult superhero to be against because of his superpower.
  • As shown in "Heart Hunter", Luka works as a pizza delivery guy.
  • Luka is the third person to try to resist Akumatization, following Caline Bustier and Chloé Bourgeois, but is unable to prevent it from happening, much like how it happened with Miss Bustier in "Zombizou".
  • Truth is the only villain who still identifies as his civilian identity despite being akumatized, calling himself "Luka Couffaine" in front of Jagged Stone.
    • Although he could have introduced himself as such to be specific and receive a clear answer from Jagged.
    • Additionally, this may or may not tie in with his line to Shadow Moth, "I always tell the truth".
  • As of "Crocoduel", he's the only member of the Couffaine family who doesn't own a Magical Charms.
  • As of "Wishmaker", he is the 3rd member of the French Miraculous superhero team (and 2nd chronologically) to know Ladybug's civilian identity.
    • The others are Alya Césaire and Alix Kubdel (the latter will find out in the future).
    • He is the 1st of the French Miraculous superhero team to know Cat Noir's civilian identity.
    • He is also the only member of the French Miraculous superhero team to know both Ladybug and Cat Noir's civilian identities.
    • He is the second human to know both Ladybug and Cat Noir's civilian identities, the first being Master Fu, although Fu has forgotten due to his amnesia, making Luka the only person to know both identities.
    • Unlike other people, both Ladybug and Cat Noir don't know that Luka has learned their civilian identities. They only knew about one such person who they knew and that was the previous guardian, Master Fu.
  • It is revealed in "Wishmaker" that Luka goes to a different school unlike the other main characters who go to Collège Françoise Dupont.
  • He has the longest transformation sequence out of all the Miraculous wearers.
