Mei Shi has been akumatized.
This article is about the guardian of the Prodigious. You may be looking for another Prodigious.

You focused on the greater good and let go of your revenge. You now possess all the required values of humanity. The Prodigious is in good hands with you, Renren.

—Mei Shi to Ladydragon, "Miraculous Shanghai"

Mei Shi is the lion protector of the Prodigious.

In "Miraculous Shanghai", he was akumatized by Hawk Moth into YanLuoShi, a giant supervillain that destroys any Renren he thinks is unworthy of the Prodigious.

At the end of the special, he transforms into a kwami-like creature.


As a Statue

Mei Shi is a humanoid lion navy blue colored statue covered in black armor with gold markings, has a cyan sphere at the top of his head with cyan eyes while holding a golden orb in his hand.

As a kwami-like spirit creature

Mei Shi is a lion with a navy blue body, red and green eyes, cyan blue mane, tail tuff and a small circle with a swirl symbol on his head.

As YanLuoShi

Mei Shi's statue appearance remains mostly the same except his color changes to vivid red, purplish black, and dark violet and is much taller.


He is protective, duty bound, stern towards the rules and a judge of character as he wishes to test each chosen Renren to see if they are worthy of wearing the Prodigious and when they are he'll respect them as the true wielder until the next chosen one rises.

Mei Shi is also quite knowledgeable knowing what it takes to master each renling's powers, as he sensed Fei Wu's inability to use Long Long's power and patiently told her the true value of the dragon. After he was deakumatized Mei Shi was horrified at the destruction he caused calling it a breach in his duty and was proud that Fei Wu finally mastered the power of the dragon.

As YanLuoShi, he was extremely destructive, violent and furious on taking the Prodigious back. He even eradicated Hawk Moth who give him his powers.


As a Statue

As a statue, Mei Shi can sense when a human touches the Prodigious and how they feel when trying to use the jewel he guards. From Nooroo's description, Mei Shi's a dreadful opponent with powerful magic implying that if angered he can be a fierce fighter.

As a kwami-like spirit creature

As a kwami-like spirit creature, Mei Shi can fly, levitate, and phase through solid objects. Mei Shi can also carry objects that are larger and/or heavier than him.

As YanLuoShi

As YanLuoShi, he is able to shoot beams from his eyes that eradicate anything and anyone that they touch by making them crumble to dust. Even Miraculous wearers and the Miraculous they are wearing have no immunity against the beams, as seen by him easily eradicating Hawk Moth and Cat Noir. He also possesses gigantic size.


Fei Wu

When the Prodigious ends up in Fei's possession, Mei Shi puts her under his judgement. Sensing her inability to use the dragon, he tells her that as the Renren her actions must be noble and just for it to work. But hearing Fei wanting to use the dragon's power as means of revenge Mei Shi retorts that the dragon's value is justice and that her judgement and intentions are clouded. After being deakumatized, he asked if she ascended to the power of the dragon to which she did with Ladybug's help; sensing that her revenge was gone and fulfilled all the required values Mei Shi found her as worthy Renren. After reclaiming the Sacred Cave Key, Mei Shi appeared to Fei again as a kwami and her Renren advisor.

As YanLuoShi, his judgement becomes clouded therefore he becomes furious with Fei and finds her unworthy of the Prodigious and demands it back.

Hawk Moth

Mei Shi is aware that Hawk Moth has the Sacred Cave Key and allows him entry into cave, instructing him to face his judgement under the Prodigious but when Hawk Moth refused Mei Shi was angry that he disrespected the rules. But as YanLuoShi, when he was going to attack Shanghai, Hawk Moth gets worried about Adrien's safety, Hawk Moth threatens him to stop or he'll remove his powers, YanLuoShi quickly eradicated him saying he takes orders from no one.




  • Mei Shi is the third non-human to be akumatized, with first being Markov in "Robostus", followed by the Dormant Sentimonster in "Feast".
  • YanLuoShi is the third akumatized villain who disobeyed Hawk Moth, following Gigantitan and Robostus.
    • YanLuoShi is also the first akumatized villain to temporarily cause Hawk Moth's demise, the second being Cat Blanc in an erased timeline.
    • He is the second akumatized villain to cause the death of many, following Timebreaker and preceding Cat Blanc.
  • He is the first and only kwami-like creature to have two forms, using his statue form to guard the Prodigious when not in use and changes into his kwami-like form when it is in use watching over each chosen Renren.
  • The orb symbolizes that he is one of the only kwami/kwami-like creatures to not have a genderless profile as orbs were to represent male lions in Ancient China.
  • He is also the biggest of the akumatized villains.
  • Upon becoming akumatized, Mei Shi compares himself to Yama, the Buddhist god of death, the underworld and, as he himself puts it, the 'king of the infernal'. This comparison is also reflected when he's akumatized, for YanLuoShi, contains 'Yanluo', another name for Yama.
  • He is the first akumatized villain to see the damage they caused after they've been deakumatized.
  • There are a number of possibilities for what this character's name means:
    • Chinese phrases pronounced "meishi" (with varying tone markers) include: 沒事 "no problem / all right / nothing to do"; 美事 "good/beautiful/fine thing" or "laudable act / worthy deed"; 每事 "everything"; 美食 "delicious food / culinary delights".
    • One work by Qing Dynasty poet Mei Qing is titled Mei Shi Anthology (梅氏诗略), meaning "plum" or as in the poet's family name with "family / clan / lineage".
