Marinette Dupain-Cheng is a teenage girl who was chosen by Master Fu to wield the Ladybug Miraculous and become the superhero Ladybug. At first, she was reluctant to do the job, even going as far as to try to give her new friend, Alya, the miraculous, but she gradually grew into the role.
Before Season 1
In "Ladybug & Cat Noir", on Marinette's first day of school in her last year of middle school, she woke up late. Worried about Chloé being in her class again for the fourth year in a row, she didn't want to go to school. Her mother reassured her that no one can be that unlucky and she would be fine. Marinette then lost what luck she had, spilling her breakfast and making a mess in the kitchen. She then left for school, bringing with her a box of macarons. While waiting at the crosswalk outside, she saw a man crossing the street and pulled him to safety, losing some of her macarons and making her late to school in the process.
Unsurprisingly, she was in the same class as Chloé once more, immediately being bullied by her to move seats. Alya saw this and helped Marinette, pulling her to sit next to her in class. Before Marinette could make it to her new seat, she tripped, spilling all but one macaron and splits it with Alya, the two becoming friends.
After the first class, she and Alya were in the library when they saw the rock monster Stoneheart shouting for Kim. Alya rushed off, leaving her behind. Marinette returned to her home, finding a small box in front of her computer. When she opened it, a flash of light entered the room and she met Tikki, a talking kwami. Tikki convinced Marinette to put on the Ladybug Miraculous and to transform into a superhero. Afraid, Marinette didn't want to be a hero, but with no way to remove the costume, she left her room, swinging her yo-yo and flew across Paris.
Still learning how to control the yo-yo, Marinette landed on Cat Noir while falling out of the sky. She followed him to fight Stoneheart, still afraid and nervous. In the Parc des Princes, Marinette hesitated before joining the fight, but accepted her role as Ladybug and helped Cat Noir take down Stoneheart with her Lucky Charm wet suit and turned him back into Ivan. She returned to her room before she detransformed however, she forgot to capture the akuma. This failure on her end resulted in the akuma multiplying and infecting innocent Parisian citizens. Her confidence plummeted and she rejected the Ladybug Miraculous out of guilt. She took them off, hiding them in her vanity until she could give them away.
In "Stoneheart", the next day, Marinette watched the news report about the Stonehearts, with her confidence gone. She took the Ladybug Miraculous to school to give to Alya, believing that she would make a better hero. At the same time, she kept Ivan from being akumatized at first by helping him build his confidence toward Mylène Haprèle. Arriving to class, she saw Adrien poking at the gum on her seat and accused him of putting it there. She decided not to trust him, believing him to be the same as Chloé.
When Stoneheart busted down Miss Bustier's classroom's door and took Mylène and Chloé captive, Marinette tried giving Alya her bag with the Ladybug Miraculous so that she could run and hide, but Alya left it behind. Marinette chased after Alya and saw her nearly die when a car was thrown at her. With Cat Noir captured and Alya trapped, Marinette decided that she had to be Ladybug. She transformed, freed Alya, grabbed Cat Noir's staff, and went after him. Freeing Cat Noir, they went after the original Stoneheart who was on the Eiffel Tower.
Ladybug caught Chloé when she was thrown off the Tower then tried to stop the police from firing on Stoneheart, but Agent Roger reminded her that she failed, agreeing with him that it was her fault, but Cat Noir encouraged her to try again. When Hawk Moth told her to give up her Miraculous, she reminded him that he was the villain and that they would take him down and swung her yo-yo at his akuma-face and captured all of them. Then promised Paris that she and Cat Noir would keep them safe and ran up the side of the Eiffel Tower, deciding the only way to free Mylène was to bring her and Ivan closer together. She summoned her Lucky Charm and received a parachute. Using her yo-yo Ladybug made Mylène kiss Ivan, causing him to drop his akumatized object. She broke the object and changed Ivan back to normal. To save Mylène, she dove off the Tower, grabbed her, captured the akuma and set her on the ground with help from the parachute. Using Miraculous Ladybug, she freed the other Stonehearts and returned the city to normal.
The next day, she and Alya sat behind Nino and Adrien, until Chloé demanded her to move. After battling Stoneheart, Marinette gained the confidence to stand up to her until she moved. By the end of the day she ignored Adrien but accepted his apology for the gum incident after class. It was then that she fell in love with his kindness. Marinette finds herself stammering to say goodbye and Tikki playfully teases her about her crush. After that using the umbrella he gave her, she went home.
In "The Bubbler", Marinette woke up excited for Adrien's birthday. She brought a present to school for him, but couldn't give it to him. Instead, she and Alya dropped it off at Adrien's house and yet she forgot to sign the gift. Afterwards at lunch, Marinette's parents were captured in bubbles and sent skyward. She transformed into Ladybug and ran off to find Bubbler at the Agreste mansion. But used a Lucky Charm to break up the slow dance, because of it, she detransformed and had to find food for Tikki.
She snuck into the party and grabbed cookies, fully intent on transforming back, but was found by Alya, leading her to the present she left for Adrien. Marinette signed it and rushed to transform as soon as she was away from Alya then engaged Bubbler, giving the students time to scatter. Ladybug and Cat Noir fought against him, but they end up trapped in his bubble despite her defending the adults, the angry Bubbler sent them skywards. After being freed by Cat Noir's Cataclysm she brought them down to safety. They returned to the Agreste mansion, but it was too late; the students were sent skyward.
Ladybug and Cat Noir chased Bubbler up to the Eiffel Tower. After summoning her Lucky Charm receiving a wrench, she loosened an air vent, grabbed Bubbler's bubble wand and broke it. She captured the akuma and restored the city back to normal. The next day, Marinette saw Adrien wearing the scarf she made him but didn't correct him when he believed it to be from his father.
In "Mr. Pigeon", Marinette entered a fashion design competition to create a derby hat. With a confidence boost from Adrien she went to the Trocadéro for inspiration, gaining it from the pigeons there. She returned home to make the hat, but forgot the feather, forcing her to return to the Trocadéro. When she tried to go back home, the street was blocked by hundreds of pigeons. She transformed after she saw Mr. Pigeon and found Cat Noir. Using him as bait to get Mr. Pigeon's attention she saw her partner get carried away. Then followed them to the Le Grand Paris, but were trapped in a cage until Cat Noir freed them with Cataclysm.
Once inside the hotel Ladybug noticed pigeons flocking in the same direction to the Grand Palais where she and Cat Noir found the abducted park keepers trapped inside. She planned on Cat Noir grabbing the bird call, but his allergies kicked in, leading to them to a brawl against Mr. Pigeon and his pigeon fists. Ladybug summoned her Lucky Charm using a coin she turned the pigeons against Mr. Pigeon. They smashed the bird call, she captured the akuma and the city returned to normal. With less than an hour left till the end of the competition, Marinette completed her derby hat and proved it to be her own design, beating Chloé and won the competition.
In "Stormy Weather", Marinette babysat Manon Chamack for Nadja Chamack. Alya convinced her to take Manon to the park so that she could watch Adrien's photoshoot. She tried to get Adrien's attention and somewhat succeeded but watched from the sidelines. Marinette bought Manon a balloon when she shouted at her interrupting the shoot. After Manon led her away to the carousel, Alya stepped in and made Marinette join Adrien's photoshoot. Before she could, Stormy Weather attacked and trapped Alya and Manon in ice. Marinette transformed into Ladybug regretting she shouldn't have left and tried to free them, but was unsuccessful. She ran off to find the villain, helped Cat Noir to his feet (after he was blown away and landed on his face); they fought against Stormy Weather but the duo was blown away twice and had a bus thrown at them.
When they freed themselves, they ran to the KIDZ+ studio and broke down the door, but she wasn't there; falling into a trap. Stormy Weather turned off the lights and ran to the rooftop due to the darkness she was led by Cat Noir to the rooftops. Once there, Ladybug summoned her Lucky Charm receiving a bath towel while he defended them from the falling hail. She had him take down a billboard with his Cataclysm. As apart of the chain reaction Ladybug wrapped her yo-yo around Stormy Weather's ankle, preventing her from escaping. Then pulled her back to the ground and causing her to lose her umbrella. With a toss from Cat Noir she broke it, purified the akuma and returned the city to normal. Marinette returned to the park, intent on joining the photoshoot, but the photographer liked Manon better.
In "Timebreaker", Marinette helped her parents prepare for their 20th wedding anniversary. She was left in charge of the bakery but went to the Trocadéro to watch Alix's and Kim's race. Alya gave her Alix's watch to hold on to, but since she was holding the banner, she wasn't paying enough attention and dropped it. Until Adrien caught the watch, but Chloé took it from him and dropped it, leading to it rolling onto the track, breaking, and Alix's akumatization. Marinette tried calming Alix down but she was stopped when her father called, wondering where she was.
She transformed into Ladybug and tried stopping Timebreaker, but the villain almost made her disappear forever until Cat Noir stepped in and protected her, taking the hit. When Timebreaker went to the past, she followed but startled Past Chloé causing her to drop the watch and was blamed by Past Alix for it. Future Ladybug explained to Past Marinette what was going on and sent Past Marinette on her way back to the bakery to give Nadja Chamack her cake.
Past Marinette transformed into Ladybug and joined the fight with her future self and Cat Noir. The Ladybugs summoned their Lucky Charms and came up with a plan to stop the Timebreakers while Cat Noir distracted them by using Cataclysm. Future Ladybug wrapped the Timebreakers' ankles together while Past Ladybug created a ramp that flung them in the air. The Ladybugs broke the roller-skates, releasing the akumas, cleanse the city, merging the two Ladybugs and Timebreakers. Marinette returned to the bakery and welcomed her parents home.
In "Copycat", Marinette brainstormed ideas with Tikki on how to ask out Adrien, but she couldn't speak with him without stuttering. Tikki suggested calling him; she called Alya over to her house to help her. Alya gave her a script to read and then called Adrien's phone. She improvised the message on Adrien's voicemail and then threw the phone on her chaise, not realizing she didn't hang up. She tried deleting the message but failed. Realizing he was still in fencing practice, Marinette went over to the school and stole his phone. Tikki discouraged this since she felt that Marinette should've gone to the statue ceremony first. They missed the whole ceremony and went to Marinette's room, trying to break into Adrien's phone.
Alya called her, asking for an update on the message and letting her know that Cat Noir stole the Mona Lisa from the Louvre. Marinette transformed into Ladybug and hurried to the Louvre, but was stopped by police. From Cat Noir she discovers that the other Cat Noir was an impostor and tracked him to Théo's studio. She saw through Copycat's ruse and freed Cat Noir with Copycat's Cataclysm. Using a spoon, she and Cat Noir defeated Copycat and returned the city (and the Mona Lisa) to normal. Later that evening, Alya came over and helped her delete the message on Adrien's phone. The next day, she returned the phone, Nino invited Adrien to go see a movie later that night and Alya invited herself and Marinette along.
In "The Pharaoh", the previous week, Ladybug was hanging from a helicopter and dropped a Histoire textbook which was Marinette's own textbook. In order to get it back, she and Tikki convinced Alya to go to the Louvre and look at the King Tut exhibit under the guise that there was something about Ladybug there. Marinette tried convincing Alya that she wasn't Ladybug, but Alya wouldn't believe her until she brought her textbook with her to class. When they got to the King Tut exhibit, they bumped into Jalil Kubdel who was in a hurry to present his findings to his father. Marinette was directed by Tikki to an ancient papyrus to distract Alya. In fact, the papyrus was a scroll depicting a ritual to bring the dead back to life.
Marinette was having difficulty distracting Alya when the Pharaoh suddenly appeared. She escaped his time-shifting bubbles, transformed into Ladybug and went to fight him but was quickly thrown to the side. Despite the cat's help, he was thrown into a sarcophagus until she freed him, but they were still trapped in the exhibit until he used his Cataclysm, but had to part ways so he could charge up again. Watching Alya's livestream, she left to help her but ran into a time-shifting bubble but was freed by Cat Noir and went to save Alya from being sacrificed while he distracted the mummies. She freed her, but that didn't last long since the Pharaoh could fly then she was taken and put onto the beam of light up into the sky. After saving Cat Noir from the mummies, Ladybug sacrificed herself to keep Alya safe. Then, threw a fake pair of earrings at the Pharaoh and stole his necklace. After, Ladybug caught the akuma and returned the Louvre to normal. She went back inside the museum, took her textbook away from Alya, and told her where she was, saying she was turned into a mummy.
Back in her room, Marinette asked Tikki about the Ancient Egyptian Ladybug. Where Tikki explained that kwamis and superheroes have always existed and that she has watched over every Ladybug. She then reassured Marinette, she was an excellent Ladybug. Marinette went to sleep, prepared for her history test the next day.
In "Lady Wifi", Marinette and Tikki transformed into Ladybug and missed half of her classes due to an akuma attack. Afterwards they went home where Marinette spent the rest of the night working on her homework. When she received a note from Alya about Ladybug's identity she wanted to speak with her, but never got the chance because the WiFi was out in the neighborhood. The next day, Marinette was an hour late to school because she fell asleep doing her homework. Upon arriving, she found out Alya was suspended for a week because believed she thought that Chloé was Ladybug. Her outbursts made Miss Bustier to send her to Mr. Damocles but when she got to his office, she found him frozen from Lady Wifi's powers. Determined to save her best friend, Marinette transformed into Ladybug and went to Le Grand Paris to stakeout Chloé's home waiting for Lady Wifi with Cat Noir.
When Lady Wifi appeared, they entered Chloé's room after Chloé was freed, the duo led Lady Wifi down to the basement to trap her. However, she caught on to their plan and set up a trap of her own in Le Grand Paris' restaurant. With Ladybug separated from Cat Noir; Lady Wifi caught her and tried taking off Ladybug's mask, it wouldn't budge. The hero tried to come to her rescue, but ended up trapped in the freezer by the villainess and she was released by Lady Wifi to free Cat Noir, but the event was broadcasted to the entire city. Ladybug used her Lucky Charm to set him free, came up with a plan to defeat Lady Wifi, and then waited, hoping Cat Noir would be fast enough to stop her before she detransformed. When he destroyed the WiFi antenna, she rushed to the roof to help defeat Lady Wifi and returned the city to normal. With only a minute left, Ladybug ran downstairs and detransformed in a closet. In her heart, she wanted to tell Cat Noir her identity, but in her mind, she knew it wasn't the right choice. The next day, Alya came over to Marinette's house to show her her new phone and some pictures of Adrien. Marinette teased her about Adrien's pictures and the two girls chased each other around Marinette's balcony.
In "The Evillustrator", Marinette found out about Nathaniel's crush on her when Nathaniel was embarrassed by Chloé. Marinette was partnered with Chloé and Sabrina for their particle physics project. They first met up by Chloé's locker. There, Marinette told Chloé and Sabrina that the relationship they had wasn't friendship and that the project was a group project, meaning Chloé had to put in an equal share of the work. They went to the library to work on the project, but that only led to Chloé bribing Sabrina with a beret. Before Sabrina could accept the bribe, Chloé was attacked by several berets and a hairdryer. Marinette ran away from the crowd and transformed into Ladybug with Cat Noir's help, the hairdryer was destroyed and the duo tried going after the villain, but he got away. So they went to the Le Grand Paris to investigate why the Evillustrator was after Chloé.
Annoyed with Chloé's delusions and her defacing Nathaniel's drawing, she left in an angry huff, leaving Cat Noir to guard her back at her house, Marinette detransformed. Tikki calmed her down and accidentally reminded her about the physics project and Sabrina. She was about to call her and started to get to work on the project until the Evillustrator entered her room. Instead of attacking her, he invited her to his birthday party on La Seine. That's when she figured out the Evillustrator was Nathaniel and accepted his invitation afterwards she was leaving her house when Sabrina arrived. When she completed Marinette's geography homework in a show of friendship, much to her surprise. She begrudgingly accepted, but told her that she couldn't work on the project that night, Sabrina became mad and compared her to Chloé. Then, Cat Noir arrived, introducing himself to her and told her to not worry about her date that night; all she had to do was take the Evillustrator's stylus. She managed to get the stylus away from the Evillustrator, but he got it back, then trapped her and Cat Noir in a cube on the sinking boat and left to attack Chloé.
Marinette helped Cat Noir free themselves, once she was set down safely on the streets by La Seine she transformed into Ladybug again and went back to Le Grand Paris to protect Chloé. With Cat Noir's help and her Lucky Charm a bouncy ball, they defeated the Evillustrator. The next day, she was asked by Adrien of what she thought of Cat Noir and being protected by him.

Afterwards, Marinette returned home and finished Jagged Stone's album one that she and the rock star approved of.

In "Kung Food", Marinette attempted to learn Chinese so she could speak with her great uncle who's coming to Paris for a cooking contest at the Le Grand Paris. Then, when he arrived she tried giving her uncle the flowers she had for him but when things don't go well she called Alya having an idea and heard a knock on the door seeing Adrien. She got slightly flustered at his presence and asked why he was here he explained that Alya called him saying that she needed a translator. On their way to the contest Adrien spoke to Marinette's uncle in Chinese but was surprised that Wang Cheng could speak English.
At the hotel, Marinette apologized to Adrien for the inconvenience but he didn't mind it as he saw it as a great experience to practice with a master. When she doubted that her uncle even liked her and mentioned the flowers he ripped apart, Adrien clarified that he liked Marinette and being an artist he was going to use the flowers in his dish in her honor making her happy. As the contest got underway Marinette was shocked to see that her uncle lost and suspected Chloé sabotaged the dish. She tried to informed Wang Cheng about it but was disappointed that he solely took the blame.

And had a face off with the villain but doesn't find it easy which almost ended in her Miraculous being taken but was prevented by Cat Noir.
Ladybug was asked by the students if she was going to help them and says she will and was separated by her partner who already got face lift but she thanked him for the save. When Ladybug noticed that Cat Noir's powers were gone she only believed he'd slow her down however the cat reminds her just because someone can't use their powers doesn't mean they're not helpful. Taking Cat Noir's advice they went to the tv studio and advised everyone to where a disguise to lure Reflekta there but caught the mayor instead. When Reflekta appeared behind them Ladybug was almost turned into a Reflekta copy but was shielded by Cat Noir. Using a camera she was able to blind the villain, catch and purify the akuma, returning to school Marinette agreed with Tikki that taking the memory card was a bad idea and comes up with a better way.

In "Antibug", when Chloé was attacked by an invisible entity in Ms. Mendeleiev's classroom, Marinette left to transform to find out what was going on. Ladybug and Cat Noir visied Chloé at Hôtel de Ville. Once in her room, she was cheerfully embraced by Chloé, who was oblivious to her annoyance. She asks Chloé questions, trying to figure out who was attacking her but was told that everyone adores her but seeing that Chloe wasn't going to talk they decided to talk to Jean instead. From him they learned that Chloe and Sabrina had a fallout during one of their games leading to Chloe ignoring her. Leaving the hotel, she was noted by Cat Noir that it was going to be hard to fight someone they can't see but at her partner's warning Ladybug defended herself against Vanisher.
But the fight was increasingly difficult when Chloe entered the fray trying to help without listening to her about where the akuma was at first Ladybug believed it was in Sabrina's bag but saw it wasn't there. But using a jar of glitter and grabbing the right item they were to deakumatize Sabrina. When Cat Noir asked her why didn't she believe Chloe, Ladybug replies she doesn't believe in those in lie but it soon turns out that her disbelief in Chloe caused her akumatization into Antibug and that she was about to detransform back. Seeing the trouble she caused Marinette admitted her mistake and listened to Tikki's advice about listening to others. Then, hurried to find Tikki something to eat and seeing her partner in danger she told Tikki to hurry, but was instructed to save Cat Noir on her own but Marinette was hestaint to do so without her suit. With further encouragement from Tikki and her phone she got an idea, with Antibug distracted she freed Cat Noir and with Tikki back up to full power they retransformed into Ladybug.
Meeting with Cat Noir, she thought the akuma was in Chloe's yoyo but listened to him about it being in her earrings. By using a bag of marbles Antibug lost her sword, despite that the villainess taunted them but Ladybug says that she and Cat Noir were a team and deakumatized Chloe. After repairing everything, she made up with Chloe, encouraged her to make up with Sabrina and hears that her rival goes back to being her number one fan.

In "Volpina", while at school Marinette from Alya begins to hear her talk about the life of an amazing girl named Lila who had enrolled the school. Upon reading Alya's blog she found a video about her saying she was saved by Ladybug. Which left Marinette shocked because she never met Lila as her alter ego but was even more jealous of her when she saw her hanging out and trying to flirt with Adrien. Observing the two she and Tikki discovered that the book they had was special and having enough Lila's lies she transformed into Ladybug and chewed her out for deceiving everyone including Adrien. Which led to her being akumatizied into Volpina at first she had a tough time accepting her as an ally but after discovering that she was in league with Hawk Moth and battling through Volpina's illusions, Ladybug and Cat Noir managed to save "Adrien". Afterwards she tried to apologize for her rude behavior but Lila denied her attempt at peace.

In "Santa Claws", Marinette babysat Manon and helped her parents in their bakery by giving out Christmas logs to the customers who donated to Ladybug's and Cat Noir's charity fund. When Adrien's chauffeur walked in to take a Christmas log, Marinette ran to her room, grabbed the present she made for Adrien, and gave it to the driver to give to Adrien.
Around midnight, she received a phone call from Nathalie, informing Marinette and her family that Adrien was missing. Marinette's family went to search for Adrien while Marinette transformed into Ladybug. She found the results of Cat Noir's cataclysm and the note she left in Adrien's present. She then concluded an akumatized villain was after Adrien and that Cat Noir was protecting him. She followed the footprints she found in the snow and was eventually led to the Agreste mansion, where Adrien was outside the gates with a Santa Claus.
Assuming the Santa Claus was an akumatized villain, she attacked him. However, her attack resulted in him becoming an actual akumatized villain known as Santa Claws. Santa Claws dumped a present full of bats on Ladybug before running off, forcing her to chase him. She and Cat Noir chased him across Paris before they were flunged into Alya's house. Ladybug summons her Lucky Charm (a box), takes some supplies from the Césaires, and sets up a trap at the Eiffel Tower, tricking Santa Claws and removing his akuma. After the damage caused by Santa Claws is fixed, Marinette and her family eat Christmas dinner at the Agreste mansion.
In "The Collector", Marinette meets the guardian of the Miraculous, Master Fu, and showed him the Miraculous Spellbook. When Master Fu told her that he believes that whoever owned the Spellbook must also have the Peacock and Butterfly Miraculous, she feared that this meant Adrien was Hawk Moth. And lied telling Master Fu that she didn't know who it belonged to. However, after learning that Adrien had been banned from school after losing an important book belonging to his father, Marinette realized that the important book was the Miraculous Spellbook and concludes that Gabriel was likely Hawk Moth. As Ladybug, she sent Cat Noir a message saying that she knows who Hawk Moth was and after he meets her, the two of them go to Gabriel's house to investigate. However, they instead find Gabriel akumatized into The Collector. After an intense battle in the Agreste mansion, Ladybug and Cat Noir manage to defeat The Collector by filling up his book with CDs (unknown to her she was right). Afterwards, Marinette goes to Master Fu telling him the truth about the Miraculous Spellbook, but also voices disappointment over Adrien never being allowed back in school. Master Fu, however, offers a solution. He takes pictures of the book's pages with his smartphone and then Marinette returns the book to Gabriel. Happy that Adrien was allowed to return to school.
In "Prime Queen", Marinette was approached by a worried Tikki about her secret identity being revealed on Nadja's tv show. However, she assured her that she only agreed to ensure the citizens safety but Tikki warned her to be careful tonight. Surprised Marinette thought it wasn't till tomorrow but the video claimed the show was tonight the same time she had to babysit Manon leaving her awestruck. Shortly after Manon was dropped off Marinette called Alya and once she arrived Marinette said she had to talk with her parents and be back soon. But actually she was talking to Tikki deciding whether or not to go to the show but had her kwami's support of either choice. She transformed into Ladybug and went to the television studio.
The show goes off well until they saw a picture of themselves in love but Ladybug explained they weren't a couple. When Nadja pried too much about the heroes' personal lives they left under the excuse that there was an akuma attack that led to the show's cancellation. On the roof of the building the heroine was asked by the cat of who needed saving. She answered they were ones who needed it because they were superheroes not stars and are suppose to remain a mystery. Due to the show being cancelled Nadja was akumatized into Prime Queen.
Afterwards the duo saw that Prime Queen had captured and trapped Chloé on a speeding train. However the heroine was hesitant to jump through the screen but was reminded they didn't have a choice. Once there Prime Queen demanded that the heroes admit their love but Ladybug refused. And yet, temporarily giving into her demands she only admits it to have her stop the train landing on top of her partner shocked to hear him purring, when Cat Noir tried kiss her she denied it and Chloé was saved. But they discovered that Prime Queen trapped Alya in a sarcophagus in the museum and left to save her but ended trapped in a freezer instead.
Cat Noir offered to use his Cataclysm but Ladybug denied it after summoning her Lucky Charm she received masking tape by covering the tv screen they lured Prime Queen to them. Ladybug and Cat Noir were able to capture the akuma and used the Miraculous Ladybug to return Chloé and Alya home. Afterwards Marinette returned home was relieved that she was fine and shared a hug, by morning she watched a video of Alya with her and Manon about the Ladyblog congratulating her for the success and asked for an autograph.
In "Despair Bear", during a cooking class given by her father Tom; Marinette commented that her father loves it when he comes over to her school to Alya. While she was took the bowl to the kitchen she told Tikki to wait and control her sweet tooth. But after hearing the fire alarm she told Tikki to hide and saw her classmates leaving the classroom where her father hoped it was fire drill.
During Mr. Damocles' interrogation, Marinette informed Alya that this was Chloé's doing and yet she didn't have any proof. Then, Chloé tried to pin the blame on her but was vouched for by Alya and Adrien when Chloé tried to avoid the blame Marinette wanted to step up but was halt by her friends. Nonetheless, she and everyone else were stuck cleaning the courtyard as punishment once done Marinette along with Alya, Rose, Juleka and Mylene head to her house for a photoshoot for Alya's blog. Until everyone got invited to a party hosted by Chloé however Marinette was skeptical because of her rival's nature but changes her mind when Adrien was invited.
As everyone came together for a slow dance and Marinette was pushed by Alya to dance with Adrien until he asked her nervously accepting. During the party the akumatized villain Despair Bear attacked after their quick escape she was reminded by Tikki of the task at hand before transforming. Despite with Cat Noir's help, the villain's constant hopping around didn't make him easy to catch and soon Ladybug fought against a controlled Cat Noir but thanks to Chloé's help they were able to free the cat and stop the villain. Afterwards, Marinette and Adrien both agreed that Chloé would never fully change when Adrien commented that her baking was has good as her dancing she blushed.
In "Riposte", Marinette was in the locker room looking for helmet and was complimented by Tikki that she looked good in fencing gear and yet was hesitant on not being able to make the team but was assured she'll do great. During the tryouts she was looking for Adrien who approached her while thanking her for the compliment. While being taught the rules of fencing a mysterious fencer walks in demanding to be enrolled seeing the mystery fencer's skills Marinette thought she was going to lose the spot on the team. As the duel between Adrien and the mysterious fencer was underway the battle was so fierce that she was the only one to witnessed it.
When they turned to her to see who was the victor Marinette became so flustered and picked Adrien but wasn't completely sure herself on who won. She felt bad about making the decision but was reminded by Tikki that she had a chance to get on the team. Afterwards, she noticed an akuma and quickly transformed into Ladybug to catch it but it already akumatized the mysterious fencer into Riposte who was after Adrien. Upon confronting the villain Ladybug discovered that the weapon was merged with her hand and got into a duel with her but was completely outmatched and almost skewered until she was saved by Adrien. Briefly escaping, she knew it was hard for her to protect him and fight at the same time, made a call to Cat Noir but received no answer.
When the villain found them they tried to reason with her but it didn't work out and she battled her again on the rooftops. After trapping Riposte the two made their way to Louvre Museum and warned the people of an incoming akuma. Needing a safe place to hide Adrien she put him in the sarcophagus in the History Exhibit, and with Cat Noir they fought Riposte once more but during the duel she discovered something was wrong with him and ended up separated. Ending up back in the History exhibit, Ladybug looked on in horror as Adrien was finished but saw that he wasn't there and using a radiator along with Cat Noir they defeated Riposte. She led the mysterious fencer out of the museum and quickly found Adrien who hid somewhere else in the midst of talking about Cat Noir, Ladybug admits that he was better than her at fencing.
Just as her time was almost up Ladybug encouraged Adrien to make amends with the mysterious fencer whose name was Kagami. After detransforming as Marinette secretly watched the two and she heard Adrien consider her a great friend which wasn't what she wanted. When Tikki said that Marinette may need to work on her fencing she engaged the kwami in a playful fencing match.
In "Befana", some time prior Marinette noticed her friends were acting strange. She was happy that today was her birthday and eagerly waited for a call from Alya. While she was distracted Tikki spoke of a gift for her and received a kwagatama. Marinette heard her say that she didn't like the gift but wanted to spare her feelings but she apologized telling Tikki that she was waiting for Alya who was planning her surprise birthday party. Then, Marinette explained all the clues to Tikki and walked in to find her parents surprised at her arrival but when she heard a knock at the door Marinette was surprised to see her grandmother Gina Dupain.
Throughout the day Marinette spent time with grandmother doing the things when she was little, looking sadly at the candy Gina gave her Tikki asked why she didn't tell her she didn't like it. Marinette says she wanted to spare her grandmother's feelings and soon received a call from Alya informing her grandmother about where she was going. At the party everyone wished Marinette a happy birthday but things got worse when her grandmother got akumatizied into Befana and attacked the celebration. Under fire she tried to run but was cornered and saw Alya and Kim get turned into coal statues while trying to protect her, she tried to transform but was interrupted by Cat Noir and they escaped. On their way to the Eiffel Tower, she was commented by the cat about being a lucky girl to have so many friends protect her and was asked why her grandmother was freaking out Marinette says she wanted to spend more time with her. Arriving at the tower she was assured by the cat he would get her grandmother back safe and wished a happy birthday finally alone Marinette transformed into Ladybug.
She met up with Cat Noir finishing his song and fought against Befana's angels; Ladybug was told by him that they had to prevent Befana from heading to the tower. When she knew why the heroine almost reveal the truth but stopped herself as the fight continued they noticed that Befana couldn't touch her own candies. Realizing where the akuma was Ladybug summoned her Lucky Charm receiving a tuba but soon they were surrounded needing to separate Befana from her minions Ladybug pretended to surrender once separated she took care of the angels. Using the instrument and a Cataclysm on a fire hydrant the duo saved Marinette's grandmother. Back at the party Marinette loved the gift Adrien gave her, although Tikki found it strange when Marinette said the same thing about hers causing Tikki to become irritated. But revealed to her as a necklace she cherished her gift too explaining what matters wasn't the gift but the person who gave it.
In "Robostus", while at school Marinette forgot her bag going back to the Locker Room to get it. Then, with Tikki she noticed Max talking to his best friend in his bag which was strange. When the computer system was about to crash she was amazed that Max's friend was actually a robot named Markov. Upon hearing Max's concern about Markov and seeing the robot's akumatization, they both quickly understood why he was worried and transformed into Ladybug. Meeting up with Cat Noir the duo tried to reason with Robostus, but they were tossed out of the school and fought Robostus' army throughout the city leading to the stadium. During their fight, she and Cat Noir were captured and almost had their miraculouses taken by Robosus who wanted to make a wish to become human. Which they found strange because it was always Hawk Moth who wanted their jewels. But thanks to Max's intervention, a Cataclysm used on Robostus' robot and a harp the heroes were able to stop the villain. But seeing Max's hesitation Ladybug convinced him to forgive Markov
Afterwards, Marinette went to Master Fu's shop, from him she learned with the Ladybug and Cat Miraculouses are combined the wearer can invoke the ultimate power. Amazed she wondered why they couldn't use that power to do many good things and yet she was warned by Master Fu of the consequences of the power if Ladybug and Cat Noir ever lost their magic jewels. She vowed to him that they won't.
In "The Dark Owl", during most of the week as Ladybug, Marinette had to save The Owl who was actually Mr. Damocles trying to be his own hero. As Marinette went home from school she was invited to a sleepover at Alya's but had to cancel to help her parents at the bakery. After saving The Owl for the fifth time Ladybug and Cat Noir tried to dissuade him from these danger acts but fell it on deaf ears. After dealing with the news reporters she and Cat Noir talked on the rooftops understanding that Mr. Damocles had a good heart but knew it would end badly. Rather than shattering the principal's dreams Ladybug thought of making his dream come true. Throughout the night Marinette prepared the costume and a pair of fake Miraculous.
After Marinette finished school the next day she told Alya she was still busy but was free tomorrow and transformed into Ladybug and went with Cat Noir to Alya's house to ask for a favor. Once they staged everything for The Owl, things took a disastrous turn which caused The Owl's identity to be revealed. By nightfall, Marinette was sewing until she was shocked that their little plan caused Mr. Damocles' akumatization and that Dark Owl planned to harm innocent animals. After transforming into Ladybug again; the heroes arrived the stadium needing time to find the akuma she had Cat Noir distract him while they stayed in contact. In an effort to take the detonator Ladybug had a brief fight with Dark Owl but was tossed into the stadium. Ready for another fight and needing to hurry using her Lucky Charm she received a fountain pen but were tricked into a trap.
After falling into the crate they both discovered that the plot was fake just to lure them but used the ink in the pen to cover the screen. To fool Dark Owl, Ladybug pretended that she and Cat Noir would surrender telling her partner that they were going to detransform but have their eyes closed. Inside the crate Marinette felt around for Cat Noir's ring but instead of taking it she closed his hand and gave the villains the fake Miraculous and once their kwami's recharged the heroes retransformed. After another fight with Dark Owl and summoning another Lucky Charm from a comic book the heroes discovered that the akumatized object wasn't on Dark Owl but back at the school. Once there Ladybug was restrained by the villain but not before setting off the chain reaction with a comic book and yet had one of her earrings forced off and slowly transformed back. Thanks to the chain reaction she was able to retrieve it and purified the akuma.
Seeing The Owl become a hero on a smaller scale, Ladybug and Cat Noir had more free time after politely turning down the Cat's offer for a movie. She detransformed and went to Alya's house to play videogames while Alya told Marinette about her adventure with her favorite heroes. She won the game Alya claimed she cheated and got tickled by her as they laughed.
In "Gigantitan", Marinette had her friends come over to help execute a dating plan for a special someone but was hesitant on revealing the name. When she told them that it was Adrien, she was shocked they already knew but was thankful for their support. During an attempt to plan it Marinette came across a struggling mother and decided to help her afterwards, she saw Adrien's bodyguard coming back.
But soon a baby boy named August was akumatized into Gigantitan knowing that the romantic outing was on hold Marinette transformed into Ladybug. Meeting up with Cat Noir, she figured out that the akuma was in Gigantitan's bracelet but found it hard to get to with the villain's constant distractions and complicated plans. After using gift wrap disguised as a treat the duo was finally able to get the bracelet, returned August back to normal and reunite him with his mother. Afterwards, she detransformed, found her friends and decided to ask Adrien upfront if they could hang out but her scrambled message led her to turning down Adrien's offer and took a rickshaw ride home with her friends.
In "Glaciator", Marinette transformed into Ladybug along with Cat Noir they saved people from a runaway bus as they let people off she was asked by the hero about having a dinner date with him but even though she was touched Ladybug spoke of other plans. Returning home Marinette was having dinner with her parents afterwards she spoke of going André's for ice cream with her friends. When they easily figured that out they asked her who the lucky guy was which left Marinette to leave in a huff. Then, met up with Alya and her friends at André's ice cream stand when but was disappointed that Adrien wasn't coming. But Marinette was encouraged by Tikki that she could still have fun and was asked if she could have some ice cream too.
She was called out by André about being in love with someone and was offered a cone but denied it at first but accepted. After Marinette dropped it confusing Adrien with someone else she became so depressed that she believed that André's ice cream wasn't special and walked away. Later that night, she was disappointed in herself for her attitude towards André but was comforted by Tikki telling her that she just had a bad night and will have another chance. Wanting some time alone, Marinette went up to her balcony and was approached by Cat Noir surprised to see him, she asked if he had hero stuff to do but he didn't. Seeing that he didn't want to be alone she welcomed his company through their conversation the two had common ground about love problems. Then Marinette discovered that Cat Noir's feelings for her alter ego were real and was curious on what his surprise was; once there she was amazed but seeing Cat Noir sad she tried to cheer him up but was soon attacked by Glaciator. Then, discovered that the villain was André and escorted back home before Cat Noir left she thanked him for cheering her up.
After seeing a new side of Cat Noir; Marinette thought she was wrong about him and transformed into Ladybug. Meeting with her angry partner, she received a cold shoulder from him about missing their date, while fighting the villain they discovered that Glaciator didn't attack couples. After apologizing the heroes pretended to be a couple to get close enough to him to see that André was inside the monster. Using her Lucky Charm Ladybug received a helmet, with a motorcycle and a makeshift propeller they were able to save Paris from being buried in a mountain of ice cream.
Arriving at the date spot, Ladybug was amazed but not wanting to lie to her best friend, she admitted she was in love with another guy but refused to say anything else knowing their personal lives must be kept secret. She expected Cat Noir to be angry but he respected her honesty and was given a kiss and rose by him which left her blushing. The next day, Marinette arrived at André's ice cream stand and when asked by André if his ice cream had the magic touch she told him to have a good day and shared some with Tikki.
In "Sapotis", Marinette was at Alya's house for a sleepover where she was talking to Alya's mother about how the twins were almost ready for bed. After that she commented on her friend's ability to deal with them. And yet when Marinette heard that Alya was getting closer in her search for Ladybug's identity Marnette tried to dissuade her by reminding her the importance of secrecy of a hero's identity. After Etta and Ella got grounded the girls discovered they got akumatized into the Sapotis causing a ruckus in the house where Marinette mentioned that Alya might have been too strict with them. Observing them she discovered they multiply every time they eat; noticing an opened window Marinette failed to catch them and the little monsters escaped into the city.
Seeing the damage Marinette transformed into Ladybug, meeting Cat Noir they find a clone and destroyed the hat. Curious he asked how she knew and answered it was through trial and error but due it being a clone there wasn't an akuma. Realizing what they had to do the heroes went through many of them but didn't find the right one. After fighting several more they discovered that there were too many Sapotis' for them to handle, surrounded Ladybug summoned her Lucky Charm and received a teapot. But didn't see how to use it until Cat Noir reminded her of someone, understanding that the team needed help. After getting Cat Noir to trust her she destransformed and went to Master Fu's shop explaining the situation. Understanding the Guardian, Marinette was allowed to take another Miraculous and choose a temporary ally to help them and took the Fox Miraculous and knew of the perfect person for the job.
Transforming back into Ladybug she found Alya trying to reason with some of them to no avail and destroyed the clones. Understanding Alya's desire to help find her sisters Ladybug presented her with the Fox Miraculous under the permission that the jewel had to returned when the mission was over. Upon seeing Alya transformed she commented that she looked like Lila, Ladybug said she was the superhero version and left to find Cat Noir. After saving him, she introduced the cat to their new ally but was unsure what to call her until Alya called herself Rena Rouge. However, the moment was ruined when the trio was surrounded, retreating to higher ground Ladybug summoned another Lucky Charm receiving a unicycle. Once she gathered the necessary items, riding a rickshaw Ladybug started leading the Sapotis to "Sapotis Land" getting them into a narrow space she told Cat Noir to implement the next stage of the plan. In doing so, all the hats were collected, destroyed, the little monsters disappeared and then she used her Miraculous Ladybug to repair the city.
She held Rena back from saying one of the twins' names and would follow her shortly but asked Cat Noir to take the twins back home. Once Rena detransformed, Ladybug thanked Alya for her help but saw that she was hesitant on returning the jewel. But she reminded her of her promise but knowing her time was almost up she trusted Alya and went inside a building to destransform. At first, Marinette was saddened that Alya wouldn't return the jewel but upon hearing her opening the door and leaving it she was glad was her best friend made the right choice. After returning the Fox Miraculous to Master Wang; she was relieved that Alya was alright and enjoyed the rest of the sleepover.
In "Gorizilla", Marinette was swooning over Adrien's new ad until she was alerted by a cellphone call from Alya asking were she was. In her haste, Marinette left in her pajamas which was pointed out by Tikki and rushed back home to change but bumped into Adrien instead. Who asked if he could hide at her place; surprised she asked why but got an answer upon seeing Adrien's fan mob. Hiding in the park fountain Marinette was thanked for the save and informed Adrien she found out about his ad but he retorted saying that it was embarrassing just as she was still in her pajamas. Seeing that Adrien was safe Marinette tried to leave but was pulled back into hiding upon seeing his bodyguard where he explained he snuck out of his house without permission.
After being spotted again they made it to the subway station and she heard Adrien's apology where Marinette had mixed feelings of being his girlfriend but changed the subject asking him if everything was going to be okay between him and his father. Adrien told her everything would be fine with his lucky charm (the bracelet she gave him) but their moment was ruined by another fan mob they tried to run but ended up surrounded until Marinette was pushed into a subway car by Adrien heading towards another station. Wearing disguises she commented him for the idea of hiding in the movie theater until she learned this was where he was going. She also found out that the theater was showing a movie where Adrien's mother starred the leading role but just as Adrien took off his helmet they were swarmed by his fan mob again.
Until Gorizilla bursts through the ceiling and kidnapped Adrien seeing her friend in danger Marinette transformed into Ladybug. But with the villain's brute size, strength and Cat Noir nowhere to be found she found it difficult to fight alone but used a toy helicopter to get out of the villain's grip. Seeing Adrien fall Ladybug called for her partner but after Gorizilla released the heroine she caught him and the two safely landed on the ground. Caught in the moment Ladybug was almost shocked when Adrien called her his lady. With her time running out she had to hurry with "Adrien" acting as bait and Cat Noir finally arriving they were able to stop Gorizilla.
After an exhausting day she detransformed and went home, Marinette was ecstatic that she had the best day ever with Adrien but seeing her condition she switched it to the worst the day of her life. Until she received another call from Alya and her friends begging for more details and heard they're still at the pool.
In "Captain Hardrock", Marinette and her were at Juleka's mother's houseboat to help Juleka's mother Anarka Couffaine prepare for the musical festival. In the midst of the preparations she was informed by Alya that Adrien wasn't coming she was disappointed referring to them like a compass and statue. Until hearing Alya refer it the other way around and was sent by Anarka to get her son Luka finding him in his room the two become friends. Testing out the equipment, Alya said that Marinette had found a new statue she quickly denied saying that Adrien was only one who drove her compass crazy as Luka played his guitar she was shocked at the sonic boom that was produced alerting the police.
Upon their arrival, Marinette proposed a compromise but Anarka refused which led her to be akumatized into Captain Hardrock. Then, she and Luka tried to reason with her but she and everyone became prisoners below the ship. Eyeing Tikki in her bag and once the coast was clear she gave her a nod to phase through the chain setting her and Luka free while Marinette claimed she picked the lock with a guitar pick. Quickly finding a place to hide they transformed into Ladybug and meeting Cat Noir the heroes tried their best to control or anchor the ship with no success. When the cat, attempted to used Cataclysm to destroy the ship she restrained him telling him that there were prisoners below deck. While the cat fought against the captain Ladybug attempting to free the prisoners and informed them that Marinette was the one who called her. When Luka called her alter ego very brave the heroine blushed at the compliment until being reminded at the task at hand summoning her Lucky Charm she received a metal chain.
Rejoining Cat Noir, Ladybug told him she couldn't free prisoners or figure out how to use her Lucky Charm. Along with the cat they used it to tie the captain around the compass leading the ship to ran aground leading to her defeat. Using the Miraculous Ladybug, the heroine restored the ship and purified the akuma; before the festival began Marinette was glad that Adrien made it but tried to warn him about the stuff on the ground but it was too late. After Adrien had join the band she was asked by Alya if her compass was going crazy but enjoyed the music festival.
In "Frightningale", Marinette tried to do the moves while watching Clara's Nightningale's new video admiring that she was amazing. But when she heard that Clara was doing her next video to honor Ladybug and Cat Noir, Marinette was so surprised that she fainted. After Marinette received Alya's call, she was approached by a concerned Tikki that she was auditioning for Ladybug but assured Tikki that she was going as an extra. Proud of her wielder's decision they leave for the shoot.
She was completely in awe at the sight of her favorite musician and more so that Adrien posed as Cat Noir. As Marinette saw Clara coming in their direction she was shocked that she tripped and decided to help her up. But was surprised that she picked her to be Ladybug and yet turned down the offer, was praised by Tikki and admired by her friends. Seeing Chloé dressed up as her alter ego Marinette was angry to the point where she agreed to the offer. In the dressing room as Tikki was amazed at how much the costume looks like the real deal, Marinette apologized for giving into the temptation and hid her mask. During their rehearsal she and Adrien had trouble synchronizing their movements and when Clara mentioned of their masks, she nervously said that she couldn't find it but after they were found she slowly started to put it on until Chloé arrived and cancelled the performance.
After the shoot was cancelled Clara was akumatized into Frightningale then Marinette and Tikki transformed into Ladybug. Both heroes found it difficult to fight her until she and Cat Noir became affected too forcing them to sing and dance. By using a pair of handcuffs they were prevented from being turned into statues and with Cat Noir's Cataclysm they destroyed Frightningale's mike and saved the shoot. After Clara was deakumatized Ladybug proposed a way for her to finished the video without any interruptions. Watching the finished video in the school's library Marinette agreed with her friends that she loved this version a lot better and when Adrien commented that she was funnier than her alter ego. She commented that he was nothing like Cat Noir leading to everyone sharing a laugh.
In "Syren", once all the animals were contained, Ladybug heard Cat Noir voice his frustrations about her keeping secrets from him and said she would talk to him about it leaving with Rena. Retrieving the Fox Miraculous she thanked Alya for the help and saw her run off; detransforming Marinette was told by Tikki if she wanted to catch the movie she should've headed in Alya's direction. After the Fox Miraculous was returned, she voiced concerns to Master Wang about leaving her partner in the dark and became intrigued that he was working on a recipe about modifying a kwamis' powers. After the first attempt was a failure, Marinette realized she was late to the cinema. However, the movie was cut short due to Syren's flooding, escaping to the roof she saw Kim get captured by villain separating themselves from the others they transformed into Ladybug.
And yet, Ladybug found it extremely difficult to fight Syren underwater. Then, she was caught by Cat Noir who said that cats weren't fond of water either. Calling her Lucky Charm a potion bowl was received and understood to seek out Master Wang Fu but was still skeptical on saying anything about him to Cat Noir saying it wasn't easy for her either. Detransforming Marinette found him still trying to figure out the right ingredient assuring Master Wang they would and suggested using real tear of joy. To do so, she told him many jokes causing him to tear up in laughter. Upon completing the potion Tikki transformed into "Aqua Tikki" and they retransformed now on a level playing field, she informed the master it was time to put "the noodles in the boiling water". Ladybug was joined by Cat Noir using a set of car keys were able to beat Syren, saved Kim and Paris from being a swimming pool as well as being thanked by the cat for keeping her promise.
Shortly after Syren's defeat, Marinette was given the vials that contained all the remaining power ups. But had concerns on keeping them hidden when informed that they could be contained in anything having an idea she baked them into macaroons which Tikki loved calling them "Magicroons". Seeing her admiring the blue one, Marinette hinted that it's pretty icy.
In "Zombizou", Marinette ran into the school's locker room and met up with her friends who were all preparing presents for Miss Bustier's birthday. Marinette showed that she made a little purse for her written with the first lesson she learned from her. But when they all found out Chloé hadn't prepared a gift she called her heartless and went to her classes with her friends. Once attending Miss Bustier's class, Marinette smiled that her gift was going to be the first one her teacher opened but was shocked when Marinette saw that her gift was ruined. And knew immediately that it was Chloé who did it however, but saw her teacher unfazed by this Marinette became angry that she was getting punished and Chloé wasn't.
But her anger didn't go unnoticed by Hawk Moth, who sent an akuma to her. From Miss Bustier she learned wasn't being punished and yet praised by her to set a good example. Noticing the akuma, Marinette was shielded by her refusing to let it akumatize her. However, when her teacher tried to resist Hawk Moth's influence Marinette encouraged her to stay positive, but saw her on the verge of being akumatized. Escaping to Locker Room, she refused to let Hawk Moth get away with this and transformed into Ladybug. After meeting Zombizou, Ladybug distracted her long enough for everyone to escape and soon was attacked by her minions. Tying them up she searched the school for survivors, locating the missing students in the Locker Room. Knowing their location wasn't safe they all moved to roof; joined by Cat Noir they heard from the news that Zombizou was after Chloé. She stopped the remaining students from giving into the villain's demands saying she needs her for their plan. So the heroes decided to take Chloé to the tower but along the way they lost most of their friends.
Shortly after arriving at the tower, Alya became infected too but was instructed by her to save them all. Sadly, leaving her the heroine wanted Nino to come along but when he refused she became upset that all of her friends were sacrificed to get this far. Making it to the top, the heroes were cornered by Zombizou's minions after securing Chloé, Ladybug went back to check on Cat Noir finding him she was told to leave as she was the only one who could fix this. Back inside the office she found Chloé who wished her luck as the villainess and her minions closed in, summoning her Lucky Charm Ladybug received makeup remover. Soon she had to deal with a zombified Cat Noir and heard Chloé apologize for the trouble she caused. As the hero closed in the heroine was saved by Chloé, using the makeup remover Ladybug was able defeat Zombizou and cleansed the city. After everything returned to normal she comforted Miss Bustier saying that Hawk Moth was to blame and yet saw Chloé step up admitting her mistake.
During school the next day, Marinette took back her earlier remark about Chloé being heartless. Informed Alya that Chloé can be nice as long as they keep setting the example as their class started.
In "Frozer", after helping a delivery man on a runaway hanglider Ladybug was romatically approached by Cat Noir again. However, she sadly remainds him that she was in love with someone else also telling him she can't imagine the world without him (unaware that it's Cat Noir's alter ego) and left for school. Once there Marinette came across Adrien who wanted to talk about his love life and when she heard that he jokingly had a crush on Kagami, Marinette was left awestruck, briefly calling her Ice Queen. But retorts by saying ice rink, following that she accepted Adrien's offer to come, once he left Marinette asked Tikki what happened.
Soon she was with her friends on Juleka's family houseboat who offered ideas on how Marinette could admit her feelings to Adrien but she saw no point in it believing she and Adrien could only be friends and leaves. Then, came across Luka and asked him to come with her and he agrees while skating Marinette was asked by Phillippe to sign up for lessons but refused. After a while she trips but Luka and Adrien offer to help however Marinette was unsure of whose to hand grab until helps her up informing her to be less hesitant. Afterwards she leaves and talks with Tikki explaining that Luka was great but wasn't sure if things were going to be same with Adrien. But that was put on hold when the whole ice ring was getting covered in ice, knowing there was another akumatized villain on the loose. Marinette and Tikki transform into Ice-Bug however she received a cold shoulder from Cat Noir and was on her own wanting to think of a plan until she was saved by her partner aware that he was right to observe.
With a bag of salt they were able to save Paris from being a kingdom of ice. Returning to the rink Marinette was asked by Luka if she wanted to take the subway home wanting to talk to Adrien she thanked him for understanding. She ran after him, wanting to hang out with him again, however when she heard him offer just the two of them. Marinette akwardly offered taking the whole gang and Adrien agreed saying he'd clear his schedule. Knowing that wasn't what she intended; she was comforted by Tikki knowing she'd get there someday.
In "Style Queen", it was time for Fashion Week and Marinette was adding the final touches to her hat but was incredibly nervous. But she was told by Tikki it was a good choice to change the feather with Adrien's allergy realizing that they were late she hurried to the show, but Marinette stopped and freaked out because Audrey Bourgeois came to the event. Hearing her set the new fashion trend with glitter she tried to leave but was prevented by Nathalie making her way inside she dropped the hat and hastily leaves with it. Making it to Adrien's dressing room, she told him not to wear it but was encouraged by Adrien to be proud of it. Despite that the show went well until Audrey was akumatized into Style Queen and turned Adrien into a glitter statue leaving Marinette horrified. Afterwards the duo transformed into Ladybug, she tries to fight Style Queen off but avoids getting turned into a glitter statue thanks to Chloé and followed the villain to the Eiffel Tower.
She desperately tried to call Cat Noir but he was no where to be found, then used her Lucky Charm and received a mallet. Understanding it's purpose she left for Master Fu's seeking his help and from him she they found out that her partner lost his ring. Then, meets Plagg to whom she knew was Cat Noir's kwami and offered to help but heard from Master Fu that he was too dangerous without an owner. Same as before Marinette took the Bee Miraculous and re-transform. Returning to the tower, she spotted Alya and offered her the jewel but due to Style Queen's intervention she lost it.
Despite putting up a fight with a glued flag Ladybug was back into a corner until Plagg arrived using Cataclysm on the tower, she saw the reason why he wasn't allowed out but it bought her enough time to stop Style Queen and save Adrien. When Ladybug had concerns for her partner Plagg assured her he'd be back next time, giving Adrien a ride back at the Fashion Show she was thanked by him and de-transformed. Then, Marinette was reminded that she had to return the Bee Miraculous to Master Fu, but when she thought the magic ladybugs brought it back Tikki said they didn't. Realizing the Bee Miraculous was missing Marinette tried to go back to get it but was stopped by her parents. She assured her they would go back for it after the show.
In "Troublemaker", when her mother voiced concerns about Jagged and his crew performing their show at the bakery. Marinette eased her concerns by reminding her that Jagged asked specifically to come, as well as liking the idea to drum up business for the bakery and her father become a celebrity. Everything was going fine but once Marinette found her room live on camera she panicked and ordered everyone out. She was completely freaking out about her secret being unveiled despite being comforted by Tikki but soon through the television noticed that everyone was acting strange and yet saw that Penny was akumatized into Troublemarker leading her to transform.
Upon hearing the commotion outside, she lassoed Cat Noir up to the balcony and once inside adverted his gaze from Marinette's pictures. However, it was hard for them to fight someone they couldn't touch but realized what was Troublemarker's strength was also her weakness as well. During the struggle, she got one of her earrings taken away leading to her detransforming but thanks to Cat Noir; Ladybug managed to retrieve it. Then, upon summoning her lucky charm the heroine was shocked she received a broken plate, at first Ladybug couldn't see how to use it then Cat Noir suggested maybe losing an earring weakened her power. By using a glue stick they went back to Marinette's room per part of the plan pretending to be defenseless the duo found kept Troublemarker solid, she captured the akuma and deakumatized Penny. Joining Cat Noir on the balcony she playfully told him that he won't be finding out her identity and heard Cat Noir retorts calling her the girl of his dreams. Afterwards, she rejoined the tv crew and her parents downstairs.
The next day, Marinette was asked by Tikki if she was okay and said that she was never going to convince her parents to have a tv show at their house again. Tikki commented on that if Marinette wanted the whole world to know her secrets wanting to lay low she snuck her way to school. Then, was surprised by Adrien in the locker room aware he watched the show, talked about the photographs explaining that she was really into fashion. In a teasing manner, she was happy Adrien understood saying he got use to having lots of fans as well as photographs of him everywhere. Then, was invited to come to his next photoshoot being estaticed and Adrien would keep her posted. She was praised by Tikki for her progress sharing a laugh.
In "Queen Wasp", after the events of "Style Queen" Marinette continued watching the fashion show nervously waving a comment to Alya's blog and being shocked at Gabriel's sudden appearance. Afterwards when Audrey knew that the hat Adrien was wearing wasn't a Gabriel design, that's when Marinette stood proud admitting it was hers. She was surprised that Audrey liked it and also gave her the opportunity to come to New York, however Marinette saw that Chloé was unhappy and got disregarded by her mother. Even more so that she had Bee Miraculous transforming in broad daylight trying to prove herself better.
Meanwhile taking the subway home Marinette asked Tikki about what to do about Audrey's offer seeing that all her dreams could come true. Tikki retorted asking who would protect Paris from Hawk Moth if Marinette left, when she spoke of Cat Noir and their allies. Tikki also reminded her that only a Ladybug can purify akumas, soon figuring out what to do about Audrey's offer would have to wait when Chloé caused a speeding train as Queen Bee. Knowing that she couldn't pull it off on her own and having to retrieve the Bee Miraculous, Marinette transformed into Ladybug. After stopping the speeding train with Cat Noir, she chewed Queen Bee out for her recklessness and demanded her jewel back. When Chloé refused, Cat Noir easily figured out what happened, not wanting anyone else to hear Ladybug pulled her partner away from the cameras reminding him of the events of "Style Queen". Seeing her rival take her leave the heroes followed her to retrieve the lost Miraculous but it wasn't going to be easy. Entering the hotel, Ladybug and Cat Noir found everyone paralyzed and quickly discovered that Chloé was akumatized into Queen Wasp while wearing the jewel.
Knowing where the akuma was she suggested using Cat Noir's Cataclysm to destroy the jewel but they had to get to it without getting stung. By avoiding the swarm underwater and having Chloé come to an understanding the Bee Miraculous was restored and retrieved. Afterwards, Marinette came to talk with Chloé she was asked by Tikki if she was sure of her choice which she confirmed. Knocking on her rival's bedroom door, Marinette heard her response and refused to leave. Approaching Audrey, Marinette says that she declines her offer by saying that there's so much of her life in Paris, the Fashion Queen retorted saying that she was making a mistake. However, she answers back by saying the same thing and reveals Chloé behind her seeing her rival still hesitant she pushed her on. Adding on to their conversation Marinette points that Chloé is exceptional like her mother and returns home. Playing video games with her parents and Alya she told them her heart and family was here.
In "Reverser", she finds Marc hiding under the stairs and asked him to join their Art Club. But when he leaves out of nervousness Marinette saw that Marc dropped his book. After Marinette and Tikki read the Diary of Ladybug book they were both amazed by the boy's story and knew he and Nathaniel would work well together. Upon returning the book she gives Marc the idea of writing a comic book with Nathaniel by showing Marc's book to him. But not wanting to reveal his identity Marinette erases the name and gives it to Nathaniel saying that someone special wrote while they were watching the two were discovered by Adrien. Marinette nervously says that they were working on a surprise for him instead. However during Operation Comic Book as they watched from her balcony the plan took a turn for the worst when Marc was akumatized into Reverser.
After evading Reverser's arrows they transform into Ladybug but in the middle of their confrontation the heroine got struck by an arrow causing her to become very clumsy. Even with Cat Noir arriving the hero became a scaredy cat because of Reverser causing them to fall into the river. Pulling themselves to shore they knew the villain was after Nathaniel and Ladybug had an idea where to look but Cat Noir was too scared to move encouraging her partner to come along they realized they weren't going anywhere. Taking a cab to the school they saw that Reverser had beaten them there but discovered where Nathaniel was by eyeing his drawings and found him along with Alix at the Louvre Museum.
After showing them the feed on the news she asked for his help and when Alix wanted to come Ladybug said no but was quickly reminded of her and Cat Noir's conditions and accepted her help. Arriving at the Eiffel Tower the group saw the trash entering the atmosphere, she quickly comforted her partner knowing they were in it together. Summoning her Lucky Charm she received a bamboo roll, making a makeshift kite with Cat Noir tied to it and Alix doing the stirring they were able to save Marc. After being returned by to normal by the Miraculous Ladybug, Ladybug had Marc and Nathaniel make up.
Then, the next day, she was given the boy's first comic book as a way to thank her as Marc and Nathaniel believed Marinette would make a great hero if she wasn't a klutz causing her to laugh with everyone.
In "Anansi", Marinette was with Adrien (through video chat) who both were watching Alya and Nino marvelling that they were in complete sync. Then she voiced her dissappointment to Adrien about not letting his father come over. Then, heard Alya's sister Nora come in (who wishes to called her boxing ring name Anansi), however, when Alya mentioned about seeing the Fifa Cup fireworks Marinette was surprised that Alya was told stay put by Nora with the many akumatized people running around. As the sisters argued she informed Adrien while out Nora attacked someone that she though was akumatized and it turned out to be someone in a costume.
However hearing that Nora will let Alya go out with her friends if Nino beats her in an arm wrestle to which she agreed to and with her "helping" Nino win the match they leave to see the Fifa Cup fireworks. They group enjoying the display on top of the ferris wheel until the trio was attacked by Nora who was akumatized into Anansi realizing her mistake and needing to save her friends Marinette transformed into Ladybug. Even with Cat Noir's help, Anansi was too strong to handle. After a lucky charm a candle was summoned Ladybug noticing her predicament she asked Nino to hold off the villain until she returned, but when he seemed doubtful Ladybug told him that it doesn't take strength alone to be a hero but courage and determination.
Arriving at Master Fu's shop, Marinette and Tikki detransformed and explained the situation to the master. Aware of the villain's strength, she needed a protective miraculous and chose the Turtle Miraculous returning to save Nino; Ladybug asked for his help again she gave the Turtle Miraculous to Nino, he transformed into their new ally Carapace. Receiving a pair of boxing gloves
In "Malediktator", Marinette was watching Chloé's documentary about her adventure as Queen Bee but wasn't impressed and agreed with everyone else that she didn't deserve to be called a hero then watched Chloé storm off. Afterwards, Marinette and her friends heard a helicopter above the school to see Chloé aboard and leave for New York. Then, Marinette's shocked turned into joy and because less people would be akumatized. Soon she was approached by Adrien asking what the party was about and explained that Chloé left fort New York and asked if he was glad. But when Adrien said he wasn't Marinette asked why, that's when she heard that Chloé was his only friend growing up and couldn't celebrate her unhappy departure upon hearing that she apologized to him.
Seeing Adrien unhappy Marinette began to wonder if there was more to Chloé than she originally thought. But the party was halted when Malediktator appeared, quickly hiding Marinette and Tikki knew that Chloé akumatized one last victim before she left and Marinette believed that she was partly to blame but transformed into Ladybug. Even with Cat Noir's help through an abacus the heroine knew they needed more and told her partner to wait but was horrified that Cat Noir was defenseless. At first, she wanted save to him but found out he still had claws and sought out Master Fu. Once at his shop, she explained the situation understanding Marinette was allowed to pick an ally taking the Bee Miraculous again but was doubtful and was advised by Tikki trust her instincts. Knowing of the events of "Queen Wasp", Master Wang expressed doubt but Marinette was assured on knowing how to use it. Afterwards, in looking for Chloé, she saw that Malediktator had struck her parents too and through Chloé's presentation they knew where her lair was and retransformed.
Upon finding her at the hotel, Ladybug was fine with helping Chloé but needed to know why her father was so angry. Keeping a cool head, she calmly told her that maybe Marinette wasn't totally to blame but upon seeing her rival's hesitation she gently reminded Chloé that she could tell her anything. Ladybug heard Chloé admit that she hurt father's feelings because she threatened to leave Paris forever because she served no purpose. Sympathetic towards her Ladybug says that everyone serves a purpose and gave Chloé the chance to fix her mistake if she wanted too agreeing the heroine gave her the Bee Miraculous again. Heading over the rooftops to find Malediktator, she says that they had to work together and pulled Queen Bee away from colliding with a chimney.
After finding Malediktator, she tried to tell Queen Bee the plan but thanks to her blowing their cover they were in an instant fight with Malediktator but found it tough to penetrate through his security guard shield even more so while avoiding the villain's declaration bubbles. Summoning her Lucky Charm again, Ladybug received a big machine gun and laser pointer but knowing she'd only needed the laser pointer she threw the rest of it away assuring Queen Bee of her plan. After advising her to take "the sting out", with the laser pointer Ladybug had Cat Noir take out the security guards with Malediktator defenseless and paralyzed Ladybug purified the akuma and returned everyone to normal.
In "Sandboy", Marinette noticed that Tikki was being really quiet and asked what's wrong. Tikki explained that today was Nooroo's birthday and he was all alone. But Marinette assured her that they would free him one day making it a promise when the kwami spoke of a faster way. Marinette was informed that kwamis are able to speak with their kind on their birthday or cycle however if the chance was missed they would have to wait a really long time for the next one. However, when Tikki mentioned that the opportunity was tonight Marinette was surprised that she wasn't told sooner. Because they knew that kwamis weren't allowed to leave their wielder's side in case of danger.
And yet, she listened to Plagg's plan that Tikki and Plagg would go join with the other kwamis while Wayzz kept lookout. Agreeing Marinette gave Tikki the permission to leave and was hugged by her promising not to disappoint her and left through the window with a marker while she slept. Soon Marinette was woken up by a noise and though Tikki was back but horrified to be living her worst nightmare of Adrien raving on about loving Chloé. Escaping to her balcony she that an akumatized villain named Sandboy was turning Paris into a living nightmare. Needing to find Tikki she made her way to Master Fu's shop and tried to contact her kwami to no avail.
Upon waking up Master Fu, she saw the guardian live his nightmare and was told to transform but couldn't. And was informed by Tikki that the plan didn't work, afterwards they transformed to find Sandboy. Despite her best efforts with Cat Noir, she was hit with the villain's sand causing Ladybug to live her nightmare being powerless. While being protected by Cat Noir she found that he didn't have the same fear she did but instead saw an evil version of herself out to get him. But with some quick thinking Sandboy was defeated and she asked the young boy what happened explaining he had nightmare from scary movie and was akumatized by Hawk Moth.
Before returning the boy home she asked Cat Noir about his nightmare and was relieved he didn't think she was evil calling her the girl of his dreams. She returned to Master Fu taking responsibility for what happened along with Tikki and Wayzz. Tikki also apologized to her for failing but Marinette comforted her understanding that she had good intentions and will always have her trust as they embraced each other.
In "Catalyst", after dealing with a late night akumatized villain, Marinette and Tikki returned home and detransformed.

Tikki gently reminded her that her powers as Ladybug weren't meant for personal gain, however after shortly arriving at the school. The two notice the school being attacked by a swarm of red akumas and transformed after dealing with Vanisher they detransformed and went to Master Fu's shop. Once again when Marinette was offered to choose an ally seeing the seriousness of the situation Tikki suggested using all the jewels but seeing that there was little time Marinette only took the Fox, Bee, and Turtle Miraculouses.

But thanks to Cat Noir using Cataclysm on the ground below them the duo escaped, afterwards she gave Tikki a macaroon and expressed doubt on how to beat Hawk Moth. After receiving encouragement from Cat Noir, being found by the army Marinette and Tikki retransformed into their Aqua Mode. Resurfacing Ladybug released a swarm of white butterflies to give the people hope and this time with the Paris rebellion's help. On their way to the Eiffel tower she and Cat Noir saw the reason why to keep hope alive the duo managed to corner Hawk Moth. Summoning her Lucky Charm again she received a miraculous box. At first, she believed it was a sign of Hawk Moth's defeat, after hearing his plan about making a wish their jewels Ladybug reminds him with every wish there's a price to pay and wanted to know his wish first.
Closing in on Scarlett Moth, being sympathetic she tells him that it's not too late for him to change and do good with them. However, upon seeing another Scarlett Hawk ready to attack thanks to the charm, she pushed Cat Noir out of the way to discover that the Scarlett Moth they were talking to was just an illusion. Despite battling him two on one she and Cat Noir were defeated but saved by Rena and the others. But their archenemy managed to escape thanks to Mayura despite that the team managed to save the city and returned the Fox, Turtle, and Bee Miraculouses to Master Fu.
Marinette went to a picnic with her friends and nervously told Adrien that he could sit next to her. However, when he had to leave to attend his father charity ball she heard Adrien speak of her kindness and of her helping everyone everyday being called their everyday Ladybug. Moved by Adrien's compliment Marinette worked up the courage to admit her feelings to him by giving him a kiss on the cheek expressing her thanks. As her friends cheered for Marinette was shocked that she stepped in pie as the fireworks went off.
In "Chameleon", after hearing what Lila planned to do to Marinette if she exposed her lies. Tikki told Marinette not to let Lila get to her trying to console her, then she warned her of an incoming akuma.

After the akuma flies away Tikki and Marinette transform into Ladybug to catch before it akumatizes someone. However, the akuma infects Lila turning her into Chameleon, and despite her shape shifting Ladybug and Cat Noir deakumatize her.
When she heard Lila's lies Marinette attempted to expose her Adrien talked her down saying that humiliating her won't set her straight.

In "Animaestro", Marinette was watching the new movie trailer about her superhero alter ego. Until she was asked by Tikki if she was going to the premier answered she wasn't going to seek stardom but when Marinette heard that Adrien was going to be there she changed her mind. After Marinette was done talking with her parents Tikki saw her take out a special macaron. Then, the pair went off to the movie showing, in the midst seeing Adrien and Kagami being so close. Marinette was shocked that Chloé knew about Kagami too and became paranoid so much that she went along with her in an effort to stop them from being together.
But when the plan turns into a fiasco, Marinette mentioned that the macaron Thomas had was a passionfruit one leading to her revealing her crush on Adrien. Then things got worse when Thomas Astruc was akumatized into Animaestro, but was praised by Tikki for not listening to Chloé and transformed into Ladybug. However, defeating the animation villain wasn't easy with him constantly changing but thanks to her lucky charm a head camera she and Cat Noir discovered Animaestro's weakness if no one was watching him he stops moving. By telling everyone around them to close their eyes, cutting off the live feed and then with their eyes closed they were able to stop Animaestro.
Returning to the theather, Marinette begged Chloe not to tell Adrien her secret and yet heard her rival refuse to do it. Then, was given Thomas Astruc's movie pass so she could enjoy the event and to her surprise she was sitting next to Adrien hearing him apologize about not trying her macaron but Marinette didn't take it too hard and enjoyed the movie premier.

And yet, she was curious on how the train was going to get to the U.K. when Marinette spoke of the train using a tunnel under the English Channel.

Tikki called the sweater Marinette was making for her father Tom's 40th birthday beautiful but when Marinette had trouble figuring out what to get for him, Tikki wasn't worried as she always comes up with something perfect. Noticing the look on her wielder's face Tikki knew she had the idea of having getting Marinette's grandfather and father to make up after finding the address they leave for Rolland's bakery.

In "Backwarder", soon after Alya and the others leave Tikki and Marinette approached by Wayzz telling them that Master Fu needs help. But remembered the last time Fu called them for help it was about his lost house keys with that Tikki thought it was time that he learned to text and write a note.

In "Weredad", after dealing with Gigatitan again Tikki became disappointed with Marinette for lying about her feelings towards Cat Noir after Marinette's father was going to set up a breakfast between them. While waiting for the hero the next day Tikki asked Marinette what will she do if he does show up and yet she was reminded that he was in love with Ladybug. However, the kwami ruled out the possibility of Cat Noir actually being in with Marinette for real because of Ladybug's several rejections. Soon she saw Cat Noir coming and told Marinette not to doubt the hero's love of macrons.
Then, Tikki listened to Marinette rambling on about what to do and asked for her help but gave her wielder a dissatisfied look. After the date Tikki was informed that Cat Noir was still in love with Ladybug and yet Marinette's convincing act in front of her parents led to Tom's akumatization. Even worse she and Marinette ended up separated making her way out she discovered her wielder was trapped high up in a prison maze of thorn vines.

Shortly after Lila's photo for attention caused Kagami's akumatization, she allowed Marinette to transform into Ladybug.
However catching Oni-Chan was going to be tricky with her constantly teleporting everywhere Lila was. That's when Ladybug found out that Lila's horn acted as a beacon and after being tied by the heroine's own Lucky Charm a hose Ladybug decided to use it to her advantage.

But they both became alarmed of their jewelry beeping and noticed a pair of strange creatures appearing (their kwamis). However, she was scared of them and hid behind Adrien but upon hearing that Tikki was in the same condition as well as being very hungry Marinette felt sympathetic towards her seeing it best to stay together.
Upon noticing that the elevator was collapsing they tried to escape and managed thanks to their kwamis. The amnesic pair tried to find a way out of the building but all the exits were blocked then hearing that a villain was after them hiding in the bathroom. The duo tried to recap what happened, after Marinette fed Tikki a macaron she noticed her ID tag in her bag remembering her name and was greeted by Adrien (who remembered his name). Marinette began to realize that they still had their phones but were locked, hearing Oblivio coming for them they hid in the stall and escaped through the air vent and admired Adrien's compliment about her creativity.
Moving to another part of the building they resumed their phone problem. After unlocking her phone Marinette called her mother; from her and eying a poster of them dressed as they were earlier. She discovered they were the were the heroes and afterwards explained the situation to Adrien. Aware of her identity as a hero Marinette figured that they must known about each other's identities eying the many pictures of Adrien in her phone and showing each other they believed that they were a couple. Despite that Oblivio was closing in on them again by having another diversion they manage to escape believing even without their powers they made a great team.

Upon seeing Oblivio's giant bubble and transforming again she didn't feel any different and while studying the user's guide she accidently activated her powers receiving a tea pot.

Then, she and Cat Noir bumped into Alix who had a message through her family watch with it saying, "Dig deep into past and you'll find the rabbit's burrow". With Cat Noir's joke in mind, the trio heads off to the Eygptian Exhibit after checking a hollow obelisk, the cat used Cataclysm revealing a future Miraculous holder named Bunnix inside. From her, Ladybug learns that she was apart of her's and Cat Noir's team of heroes in the future explaining that she was the heroine of the last resort coming to the rescue when everyone else fails including them. Shocked they were informed by Bunnix that in the future that one of her partner's cataclysms will damage her jewel, being given the damaged Miraculous.
And yet, Ladybug wondered what they were going to do without it but to her surprise she saw that Alix's watch was actually the Rabbit Miraculous in camoflague mode and that Bunnix was Alix's future self. However, knowing this left her more confused as she never gave either of them the jewel until Bunnix confirms one day she would. Aware that Bunnix was from the future Ladybug believed that she knew how to beat Timetagger due to younger self seeing it. But due to the aged heroine being in a stone slumber for so long she couldn't remember anything except for her younger self playing a vital role. As they leave they see all the damage Timetagger had done to the timeline. Ladybug believed that she wasn't very powerful in the future until Bunnix told her the opposite about becoming the greatest leader and hero ever. Realizing her status in the future Ladybug wondered how she'll ever get to be like that and Bunnix answers by growing up.
But once outside, the team had seen the damage and despite that they were ready to face Timetagger but was told by Bunnix to stay put. During the confrontation both she and Cat Noir witnessed Bunnix's mastery over her powers and stopped the hero from doing anything foolish. Believing that Timetagger was beaten Ladybug and the others bid their friend goodbye, however the fight wasn't over. As it dragged on she realized Bunnix needed help and summoned her Lucky Charm receiving a notepad, putting on the act of giving up she asks someone for a pen wanting to write an apology note to her future self (but drew a plan instead). Still putting on the act, she told Bunnix to return to the future when she refused Ladybug told her to trust her and Cat Noir it's time to surrender giving him a wink about her plan.
She smiled when Timetagger was where he needed to be and with the help of their future selves the group defeated him. When Bunnix returns for him, she was surprised that the villain was Future Chris and complimented by herself saying they'll always come through and bids Bunnyx goodbye. With the damage repaired she tells Alix they'll see each other soon and yet, sometime later she and Cat Noir fought and defeated Mr. Pigeon again. While doing so, she made a call to Alya about not being able to babysit but was happy she found someone else. This time even though they didn't find a solution to stop Mr. Ramier's akumatization they knew they would next time. Upon hearing Cat Noir suggest that Mr. Ramier get attach to another animal, they take their leave, while walking she listens to him talking about everything Bunnix had told them.

Seeing her appear as Ryoku, Ladybug tried to tell her that Longg should've informed her about the plan, but was aware that she didn't listen and during the fight she saw Cat Noir get captured. Regrouping she heard Ryoku apologize for her hastiness and believes she wasn't worthy to work with them until she retorted saying that failing on the first try was no reason to quit and still needing her she advised them to work together telling her the plan.

But became annoyed that like her during their first mission Mister Bug had trouble controlling his yo-yo informing him that he had to capture one akuma and amok. Avoiding Reflekdoll's blast, she stopped her partner from using his Lucky Charm aware that he didn't know enough about his opponent and yet remembered where the akuma was hiding. Upon hearing him ask for a mirror, she told him that her powers don't give the user what they want but was shocked when he received a mirror and called it beginner's luck. But seeing his attempt not work out so well she also reminded him that he had to figure how to use it warning that Mister Bug had five minutes before transforming back calling him Bugaboy. Hearing him retort back, she called herself funny, cunning and ultra chraming using her Cataclysm on the sentimonster but seeing it act up Lady Noir asked if that was normal but heard that Mister Bug wasn't sure since he never did it.
Seeing the sentimonster go berserk, they continued on and pulled Reflekta out of Reflekdoll, but when she mocked them for their looks but heard Mister Bug admire their new looks.
