The episode begins as Ladybug and Cat Noir are battling Mr. Pigeon for the fifty-first time, the villain and all of his pigeons carrying the Eiffel Tower up into the sky with the intention of taking over the moon, "where no one can hear them coo." Ladybug and Cat Noir use their space power up to chase after him. Alya Césaire is documenting the battle from the ground, dubbing the heroes Cosmobug and Astrocat in their space forms. After the villain is deakumatized in the office at the top of the Eiffel Tower, Cat Noir gives Ladybug a yellow rose which symbolizes friendship. She at first rejects it, sarcastically asking, “Are you sure yellow roses don’t represent jealousy?”. This makes Cat Noir flustered, questioning which rose actually symbolizes jealousy. Ladybug then assures Cat Noir that he doesn't have to give her flowers because he is the best partner ever.

To celebrate the friendship between France and the United States, Marinette's class is traveling to Manhattan, New York City. Unfortunately, Caline Bustier would not be able to go, as she has just learned that she is pregnant. While everyone is happy for her, the students immediately become upset when they find out that Ms. Mendeleiev would be chaperoning instead. The students don’t hesitate to complain about how much they don’t like her, which Ms. Mendeleiev overhears. Everyone is excited for the trip. However, Adrien is sure that his father will refuse to let him go. Determined not to let Adrien stay alone in Paris with Lila Rossi, Marinette declares her intention to speak to Adrien's father and convince him to let Adrien go.

Meanwhile in Agreste mansion, Gabriel Agreste sees a video of a necklace that Marquis de Lafayette gave to George Washington during the Revolutionary War and Nathalie Sancoeur realizes Gabriel it might be a lost Miraculous: the Eagle Miraculous. The conversation disturbed by the doorbell, Gabriel sees through his security cameras and it's Adrien Classmates. When Marinette comes to speak with him about letting Adrien go on the trip to New York, he doesn’t hesitate to permit Adrien to go. Since Gabriel is also secretly going to New York to take the Eagle Miraculous, he won’t have to worry about explaining his absence, and he’ll be able to keep an eye on Adrien. Marinette and the other classmates really get happy because they think Marinette is the reason Gabriel is letting Adrien go to New York.

While coming back to home, Tikki get worried about Paris' villain and Cat Noir on which Marinette tells Tikki she has and idea. In anticipation of her departure, Ladybug asks Cat Noir to watch over Paris but does not specify the reasons for her absence. She gives Cat Noir a device that can signal her to come home immediately if there is trouble, and he should take the mission very seriously. Cat Noir accept it unknown to him his father has plans for him to go New york. After finding out that he can go on the trip, Adrien doesn’t know what to do; he wants to go with his friends, but Ladybug had placed her trust in him to watch over Paris. After some convincing from Plagg, Adrien ultimately decides to abandon Paris to accompany his friends.

When boarding the plane, Marinette is flabbergasted to find out that she will be sitting next to Adrien. Knowing that she won’t be able to emotionally handle sitting next to Adrien for several hours, she tries to get a new seat, but Ms. Mendeleiev refuses. After hearing that Miss Bustier would have agreed, Ms. Mendeleiev gives Marinette her own seat. During the flight over while most of the passengers are asleep, Marinette and Adrien watch a sunset through a window, and Adrien thanks Marinette for convincing his father to let him come to New York. The plane is suddenly attacked by the American supervillain Techno Pirate, but they are rescued by American superheroes Majestia, Knightowl, Uncanny Valley, and Sparrow.

The plane safely lands in Manhattan; the students take in the sights; and they attend a rooftop party, hosted by the Armstrong High School students from Queens who are also attending the same field trip as the French students, after curfew and without the permission of Ms. Mendeleiev who earlier that evening had ordered a strict lights out. The next day, the French and American students visit a museum, covertly observed by Uncanny and Sparrow in their civilian identities of Aeon and Jess. Meanwhile, Hawk Moth akumatizes Techno Pirate as he is being taken to prison and sends the newly-dubbed Techlonizer to steal the Marquis de Lafayette's sword. While Techlonizer is breaking into the museum, Adrien gets a news update on his phone, saying that Robostus is rampaging through Paris. Adrien wonders how it could be as Max had brought Markov to New York with them. Marinette immediately deduces that it had to be a sentimonster created by Mayura.

Uncanny, Sparrow, Ladybug, and Cat Noir attempt to subdue Techlonizer. Sparrow tries to call for backup, but Techlonizer damages her communicator. Sparrow doesn’t care for long, though, seeing this as a chance for her and Uncanny to prove themselves. Meanwhile, Hawk Moth's true plan has been a success: While the heroes were busy fighting Techlonizer, he was able to walk in and steal the Eagle Miraculous unopposed. The heroes manage to get the upper hand, Cat Noir apologizes to Ladybug for not telling her that he was with her. Ladybug angrily decides to never trust him since he left Paris defenseless. Cat Noir becomes stunned by this word, while he's been distracted, Technolizer grabs Cat Noir and throws him and Cat Noir accidentally destroys Uncanny with an errant Cataclysm. Majestia finds out and yells a giant "NOOOOOOOOO" while flying down from the stratosphere and then punches Techlonizer, making him smash through several buildings.

Majestia then cries over her dead daughter. Ladybug uses her Miraculous Ladybug to revive her, but an angered Knightowl suspends Sparrow for disobeying protocol and demands the French heroes surrender their Miraculouses. The two flee into the sewers, where Ladybug breaks down sobbing upon knowing that they had taken too long to deal with the sentimonster: Paris had been wrecked; and since Mayura had already destroyed the sentimonster, she couldn't fix the damage. A broken Cat Noir, feeling guilty for all the mistakes he had made and letting Ladybug down, renounces the Cat Miraculous as penance for his failures, leaving Ladybug crestfallen and alone. After deakumatizing and picking up Techno Pirate and returning to his hotel room, Gabriel tests the pendant, and to his satisfaction, it is, in fact, the Miraculous of the Eagle.

Majestia and Knightowl, in their civilian forms, bring Aeon and Jess back to the hotel and scold them for making mistakes earlier.

Hawk Moth again akumatizes Techno Pirate and gives him the Eagle Miraculous on top of that.

Meanwhile, the class spots Marinette and Adrien outside the hotel. A car pulls up, and inside, over video chat, is Gabriel Agreste, who tells Adrien to get in the car and that he should've never let him come to New York. Adrien tells Marinette that he would've liked to stay with a friend like her and then drives away. Alya asks Marinette if she is really fine with letting Adrien leave. Marinette tries to argue that Adrien made his choice, but Alya argues that Marinette's feelings are just as important. So Marinette runs after Adrien, crying for him to come back and, as she stumbles, tearfully confesses that she loves him.

At Times Square, Techlonizer, now Miraclonizer, uses the Eagle's power of Liberation to free the American heroes from their ethical constraints, causing them to go berserk. With the heroes incapacitated, Miraclonizer uses his technopathy to project Hawk Moth's message across every screen in Manhattan, telling Ladybug and Cat Noir to hand over their Miraculouses.

Uncanny, able to see through other people's identities, goes to recruit Ladybug and Cat Noir while Sparrow tries to contain the crisis. Uncanny finds and recruits Marinette, then goes to return the Cat Miraculous to Adrien. At first, Adrien is hesitant, but Uncanny plays back a recording of Marinette saying that she can't be Ladybug without him. Adrien becomes Cat Noir again and flies back to New York with Uncanny but notes that he had to get back before the plane lands.

Once Cat Noir and Uncanny rendezvous with Ladybug and Sparrow, they come up with a plan to manipulate Doorman into helping them infiltrate the Statue of Liberty, where Miraclonizer is waiting to launch a missile on Hawk Moth's order if Ladybug and Cat Noir don’t surrender.

They manage to get the Eagle Miraculous, and Sparrow, now Eagle, uses the power of the Eagle Miraculous to dispel the effects of Miraclonizer's use of Liberation. The villain manages to fire the missile, but it is stopped and destroyed by Majestia.

The four young heroes defeat and deakumatize Techno Pirate and restore everything to normal. Ladybug tells Eagle to keep the Eagle Miraculous, knowing that it's in good hands. Majestia and Knightowl congratulate their protégés and admit that they should give them more freedom to grow.

The French and American students enjoy the big festival and fireworks show on the final day of their trip, and back in Paris, the repair work has begun. Hawk Moth realizes there are more lost Miraculouses he can travel the world to claim.

After the French Heroes return home, Uncanny Valley and Eagle are about to ambush a group of criminals in an alleyway before a man — a Guardian with the Native American Miracle Box — appears and demands the Eagle Miraculous be returned. Eagle proposes that, instead, he should help start a new generation of heroes in New York. Though his answer remains unknown, the man seems genuinely intrigued by the idea.

Major characters

Minor characters


  • Originally, this special was titled "Ladybug in New York City".
    • It has also been called "Miraclonizer", after the main villain of the episode.[39]
  • The first concept art seen for "Miraculous New York" is almost an exact replica in structure to Pixie Girl's promotional art where Pixie Girl looks down on New York City.
  • This is one of the seven known episodes that are at least partly set in locations outside of Paris, including "Startrain", "Miraculous Shanghai", "Miraculous Rio", "Miraculous Dakar", "Miraculous London" and "Miraculous Tokyo".
  • The events of this special take place between season 3 and season 4.[40]
    • This episode takes places before "Hack-San", as seen in that episode Marinette tried to stay as she couldn't leave Paris unguarded. So she did the second best having someone else act in her stead.
      • Although the exact speed of the jet-packs in Miraculous space mode is unknown it would take Ladybug and/or Cat Noir a while to get back let alone a round trip. And to be able to help both Paris and New York in time the heroes would have to go faster than their jet packs so they would need Kaalki's power to get there and back before anyone noticed they were gone as done in "Startrain".
      • Or Ladybug would've needed to do a fusion form into Pegabug. If she did her appearing in said form would've been for the first time showing that Marinette was still aware of the fusion forms meaning this is after "Kwamibuster" but before "Sentibubbler".
      • But since Kaalki nor her Miraculous weren't seen in the movie that means it took place before Master Fu gave up his title in "Miracle Queen" or after it but before "Truth" and "Gang of Secrets" since Marinette didn't know how to open the Miracle Box let alone was aware of how to access the other jewels from her yo-yo.
    • Since the duo are seen in their space forms for a second time this movie came before "Dearest Family" and "Ephemeral".
    • Despite Nathalie being bedridden she used the Peacock Miraculous to create the Robostus sentimonster that means she used it before it was fixed as in before "Miracle Queen" or sometime after Gabriel did fix it but before he started his debut as Shadow Moth in "Truth".
      • Usually when it comes to fixing magical objects it takes a while for someone to gather all the ingredients needed to it.
    • Since various footage of the movie was removed and some of it mentions Chloe visiting her mother it's likely Audrey returned to New York some time after celebrating her 20 year marriage with Andre.
      • With Zoe being in New York, Chloe could've met her there and if they did then them meeting in "Sole Crusher" would be for the second time.
  • Caline Bustier is revealed to be pregnant.
  • This is one of the few times Adrien has to be in two places at once.
  • Cat Noir giving Ladybug a rose is a callback to the episode "Frozer." Though this time, it is not in an act of flirting and more of (as he specifies) an act of friendship, as he offers a yellow rose which in floriography represents friendship.
    • Just as Gilbert gave the Eagle Miraculous to George Washington as a sign of friendship and trust, Ladybug and Cat Noir allowed Eagle to keep it for the same reason.
  • This is the first time that Gabriel Agreste/Hawk Moth himself wants a Miraculous other than those of Ladybug and Cat Noir.
  • It's the third time Miraculous related content was aired in the US before being aired in other countries after "Captain Hardrock" and "Ikari Gozen", later being followed by "Wishmaker", "Ladybug Saves Christmas", "Qilin", and "Risk".
  • The space power-up is shown for the second time, following "Miraculous Shanghai", and the names for these forms are revealed to be Cosmobug and Astrocat respectively.
    • Its also revealed that when Ladybug and Cat Noir power up, they don't need to feed the power up potion to their Kwamis, but instead can eat it themselves while transformed.
  • This episode reveals the existence of another Miraculous, the Eagle Miraculous, and by extension, the Eagle Kwami, named Liiri. It also confirms that, while the Chinese Miracle Box is located in Paris, there are many more Miraculous that exist all over the world.
    • This also confirms that the Dormant Sentimonster created by Master Fu didn't actually eat all the Miraculouses (with the exception of the ones in the Chinese Miracle Box), as there are lost Miraculous spread around the world, having only eaten the ones existing at the temple at that moment.
  • The American superhero team is shown onscreen for the first time.
  • Although it's never mentioned within the special, the borough where both Miss Bustier's class and Professor Gate's class visited for their field trip is Manhattan.
  • Adrien briefly renounces Plagg and his Miraculous before giving it to Ladybug. He had threatened to do so before, in "Syren" when he was tired of Ladybug keeping secrets from him, but this is the first time he actually goes through with it. Marinette had also renounced Tikki before in "Ladybug & Cat Noir (Origins - Part 1)" when she felt unworthy of the task of being a superhero. Gabriel also briefly renounced Nooroo in "The Collector" and "Queen Wasp", but in "The Collector", he renounced Nooroo as to lead Ladybug and Cat Noir away from discovering his identity, while in "Queen Wasp", he renounced Nooroo because he just gave up.
  • This is also the fifth time Adrien is separated from his Miraculous following "Lady Wifi","The Dark Owl", "Reflekdoll" and "Feast".
    • Unlike "Lady Wifi" and "Feast" but like "The Dark Owl" and "Reflekdoll", Adrien willingly removed his ring.
  • Some plot holes and questions from the show's beginning are made clearer or answered in this special:
    • Kwamis not only don't show up in films or photographs, but can't be observed by any form of technology such as the artificial intelligence such as Uncanny Valley and Markov.
      • As discovered in "Optigami", kwamis can't be film or photographed through pure technology but can be seen and heard through magical technology.
    • The Miraculous have an ability to magically disguise the identity of the wearer to human observers. However, AI are not affected by this, which is how Uncanny Valley was able to recognize Marinette's and Adrien's identities.
      • However, unlike Uncanny Valley, Markov can't recognize Miraculous holder's identity because he's not as advanced as Uncanny.[41]
      • Although, it’s unknown how Adrien got past it in "Kwamibuster", as he was able to figure out that Multimouse was actually Ladybug (not counting the illusion by Multifox)
        • It's possible, however, that Adrien didn't base his conclusion on her appearance, but on some of the things Marinette has done in the past, like how she is always missing when a villain strikes, how she went to the restroom just before him, and how she's a student from his school who hasn't been akumatized.
          • This would also apply for Gabriel suspecting that Adrien is Cat Noir in "Gorizilla", as he isn't shown to have noticed their similar physical appearance, but their similar rings, and Adrien's ability to leave his room without Nathalie or his bodyguard noticing.
    • Ladybug's Lucky Charm gives her an object to use against a specific threat, and when Miraculous Ladybug is used with that object, it repairs all damage caused by that threat. This explains why Ladybug was able to repair the damage done by Techlonizer just fine, but she couldn't do anything about the damage caused by the Robostus sentimonster.
      • The only way she could've known that was a similar like this has happened before.
      • Even after the villain is de-akumatized, as in "Weredad", "Kwamibuster" and "Miracle Queen", Ladybug is still able to summon a Lucky Charm and repair the damage done by the villain because those objects were used for a different purpose.
      • The damage done by the Robostus (sentimonster) pails in comparison to "Feast", in the terms of damage repairable as in that episode despite the damage caused by the sentimonster happening over 150 ago years Ladybug was able to fix everything because that sentimonster was still alive compared to the Robostus (sentimonster).
        • For the user of the Ladybug Miraculous to fix damage that has been caused by other forms of Miraculous magic despite a time gap the villain or sentimonster must still exist in some shape or form.
    • The only other way a Lucky Charm object could repair damage done by multiple villains would be if they were all akumatized at the same time or by the same akuma seen in "Miraculous Shanghai" and "Felix".
  • Aside from these there are also unconfirmed plot holes, unanswered questions and interesting facts about Liiri, the Eagle Miraculous, Gilbert and George Washington:
    • It's unknown how the jewel became lost in the first place it could be that a guardian before Monk, had lost it while in North America which implies that Master Fu and Marinette weren't the only guardians to lose a Miraculous or said guardian found it but was unable to retrieve it.
      • What if before Gilbert found it the jewel was used by someone else.
    • Since the Miraculous was given to George Washington, it's unknown if he knew about the powers of the jewel when he became its keeper before it was put in a museum in New York.
    • Since Gilbert was the one that found it it's unknown if Liiri ever told him about the guardians or Miraculouses in order to seek his help in being returned to the Order.
      • Also due to the circumstances Gilbert was actually the first known Miraculous holder not to be chosen by a guardian preceding Gabriel, Emilie, Chloe and Nathalie.
        • Unlike them despite not being chosen Gilbert used Liiri's powers for good.
    • Since Liiri was expecting to see Gilbert again it's unknown if he was told what happened to his previous owner upon being reactivated.
  • If Ladybug and Cat Noir or Hawk Moth had taken the Eagle Miraculous with them back home, then either of them would've discovered that this jewel doesn't go with the Mother Box meaning they would've known that there is another one before the events of "Furious Fu".
  • Like with Ladybug and the Magical Charms, Gabriel had put a hindrance to his own operations at the episode's end he mentioned that he would scour the world to find the other missing jewels. However he may have forgotten the events of "Feast" by freeing the guardians and yet being so obsessed with the French Duo he allowed them to get a head start in finding the jewels that are already missing. To top that off he doesn't even know which ones are still missing.
  • This marks the fourth time someone who is not Marinette is seen wearing pajamas, being Nathalie, following Alya and her younger sisters in "Sapotis".
    • It is revealed that Nathalie lives in the Agreste mansion. It's not clear whether she has always lived there or only does so because she's bedridden from excessive use of the Peacock Miraculous.
  • It is revealed that Adrien's bodyguard has a fear of flying.
  • According to Thomas Astruc, the first version of the script could have made a two hour movie. Story arcs were planned for Ms. Mendeleiev, Mr. Damocles and Chloé, but they had to cut a lot of stuff.[42] Despite the story arcs being removed from the movie, it's unknown if they'll be used in future episodes or not.
    • As revealed in a video posted on the official Miraculous YouTube channel, these story arcs included the relationship between Sabrina and Delmar, Chloé visiting New York to see her mother, and Mr. Damocles discovering the city's night life. Another deleted scene would have Adrien and Marinette trying to comfort Chloé after the party on the hotel roof.[39]
  • As seen in a flashback, Jessica and her mother are the fifth generation of Knightowl and Sparrow. The first generation of the pair are shown as cowboy partners; the first cowboys didn't appear until the 1880s, which would mean that the legacy of Knightowl and Sparrow is (as of the special's timeline) about 136 years old.
    • Knightowl and Sparrow, despite them both being females, disguised themselves as males referring to what Hua Mulan did in both Disney versions of Mulan. This was also to carry on the Knightowl tradition that started back in the 1880s.
  • This is the first piece of Miraculous media where Zeno Robinson voices Nino.
  • This is the fifth time where a character or characters are killed on screen, following "Timebreaker", "Miraculous Shanghai", "Cat Blanc", and "Ladybug".
    • This is the tenth time, where Cat Noir used his powers on someone else following "Dark Cupid", "Princess Fragrance", "Despair Bear", "Troublemaker", "Malediktator", "Miraculous Shanghai" "Miraculer", "Cat Blanc", and "Ladybug" but the seventh time of his own free will and this time was a result of an accident.
    • If it wasn't Uncanny who had been struck with his powers then, it would've been Ladybug. However like Cat Noir in "Miraculer", her suit would've protected her from dying right away but she'd still be gravely injured.
      • Or if her lucky charm had been struck, Ladybug wouldn't have been able to repair the damage either.
    • While not wanting to hurt to Ladybug with his powers, unknown to him Cat Noir came close to using it on her as mentioned above.
      • Knowing of how long the Miraculous holders have been around it's likely that Adrien couldn't have been the only Cat Noir to harm someone with their powers.
  • This is episode marks the first time where Ladybug's powers were used the most, with a total of three times.
    • In the summoning of her last Lucky Charm a new summoning background was shown.
    • This is the second time since "Weredad" where she didn't summon her Lucky Charm in usual position as Ladybug was sitting down instead of standing up.
  • The cities targeted by missiles were Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, El Paso, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa, and Washington D.C. Had these missiles reached those cities, the explosions would have spread to Canada and Mexico as well and Hawk Moth and Techno-Pirate would have been named the largest mass murderers in history. In addition, the destruction would have crippled the US as a functioning nation and had global economic and political repercussions.
  • Hawk Moth's actions in this special (threatening to launch a nuclear missile unless given the Miraculous would have resulted in him being labelled a nuclear terrorist, as his actions could have sparked a nuclear world war.)
    • On top of that, according to the "Villains Wiki", Hawk Moth also committed 12 other crimes in the series and this special that could have resulted in life in prison had it happened in reality and make his crimes even worse.
  • In the French dub, it is revealed that Dean Gate/Doorman is a teacher at Armstrong High School and by extension, Jessica and Aeon are both his students. When Jessica was texting to Doorman so she could trick him into helping the four young heroes infiltrate the Statue of Liberty, she refers to him as "professeur" which is a French word for either "professor" or "teacher". However, in the same exact scene for the English dub, it was never revealed and Jessica instead refers to him simply as "sir".
  • This is the first time where the people of Paris had to clean up the damage caused by a villain or sentimonster.
  • The same ice statue that was made of the young heroes was the same one shown in the beginning and ending of the film.
  • This version of the Statue of Liberty has a torch platform that Ladybug and Cat Noir were able to access just fine, but the real one's torch platform has been off limits for about a century.
  • This is the eighth time where Ladybug's Lucky Charm is an object from a previous episode following the keychain in "Miracle Queen".
  • This is the fourth time where we see things from a character's perspective following "Stormy Weather", "Miraculous Shanghai" and "Oblivio".
    • Similar to what Cat Noir, said at the end of said episode and what Master Fu said about them at the end of "Stoneheart", Aeon agreed that Marinette and Adrien were made for each other.
  • Also, on an interesting note, if a holder activates a Miraculous superpower, then in turn loses the jewel to another person and said new holder deactivates it, it's unknown if the timer will be activated leading to the new holder detransforming as well.
  • According to the beginning scene that zooms out to the world, other Miraculouses and Miracle Boxes besides Paris and New York are in Greece, Norway, Egypt, Tibet, China, India, Australia, Maldives, and numerous other places around the world.
  • Animators Alex Hirsch (creator of Gravity Falls) and Dana Terrace (creator of The Owl House) both have cameos in the special. Disney Channel airs all three of the cartoons.[38]
  • Upon seeking Ladybug and returning Adrien's ring, Uncanny Valley recites the same line her mother did in Miraculous Adventures Issue 2.
  • The slow-dance song, as with The Bubbler and Despair Bear, has a distinct auditory resemblance to the guitar solo in "I Won't Hold You Back" by Toto[43].
  • This is second time following "Startrain" where an akumatized villain went out of Hawk Moth's range.
  • This is the fourth time Cat Noir's belt is removed following "The Collector", "Riposte" and "Silencer".
  • This special marks the last time to have Cassandra Lee Morris as the voice actor for Sabrina Raincomprix and Pollen, as she left the show due to issues regarding low payment royalties.
  • This the tenth episode in which Cataclysm is summoned twice, after "Simon Says", "Copycat", "The Dark Owl", "Mayura", "Santa Claws", "Miraculous Shanghai", "Weredad", "Oblivio", and "Cat Blanc".


No Eagle Miraculous

  • The Eagle Miraculous temporarily disappears after Techlonizer breaks into the museum.
  • Clara Contard's eyelash and brows are miscolored gray.
  • When Gabriel takes off his ascot to transform, the Butterfly Miraculous is in its charged mode.
  • Plagg has a magazine called "Gentlemen's Camembert" but says it is called "Gentlemen's Cheese".
  • When Adrien hugs Marinette her eyelashes phase through her cheeks.
    • The same happens with Alya when the class leaves the bus in Act 3.
  • Plagg is seen in Marinette's bag, even though Marinette did not wear the Cat Miraculous.
    • However, it is possible that Marinette used it to summon Plagg, as she was in possession of the Cat Miraculous at the time and it is possible for a kwami to exist even if their holder is not wearing the Miraculous, as it was seen in "Reflekdoll".
  • When Ladybug and Sparrow talk after evading the missiles, Ladybug's left pigtail is missing.
  • In the credits, Alya's name is misspelled "Ayla".
    • Knightowl's civilian name is also misspelled as "Barbara Keyes". That was confirmed to be a mistake.[44]
    • Liiri's name is also misspelled as "Liri", which is the actual Albanian word for "freedom".
  • Cat Noir's ring and Ladybug's earrings were fully charged when they were in the sewer system of New York. However, their powers were used several minutes ago when they accidentally killed and restored Uncanny. They instead just voluntarily detransformed.
  • When Adrien and Marinette are viewing the sunset, Marinette's pigtails are thinner than usual.
    • However, it may be because she got wet in the bathroom.
    • In the same scene, her bag disappears for a few moments.
    • When Adrien pulled a paper out of Marinette's hair her blush was circles, then after she noticed the paper that he pulled out from her hair her blush turned to straight short pink lines.
  • Nathaniel doesn't seem to appear in Aeon's robot vision, shown in the scene where she counts the guests at the hotel. She can only see the Gorilla behind him.
  • Adrien refers to the party in "Despair Bear" as Chloé's birthday party. According to Thomas Astruc, it's an error.[45]
  • On the map of US Major cities that the nuclear missiles were meant to be sent at, some major cities are missing such as Austin, Birmingham, Buffalo, Columbus, Fort Worth, Jacksonville, Lexington, Louisville, Milwaukee, Nashville, San Antonio, and Tucson.
    • This is probably for the better, as if more cities were hit, then the US and neighboring countries would have suffered greater losses.
  • When surrounding Technolizer on the roof and Ladybug summons her Lucky Charm, she yells "Lucky Charm!" without opening her mouth.
  • When Marinette puts her hand on the left side of the door, Aeon uses her powers to open it. In the next shot, Marinette's hand is on the right side.
  • When Marinette reacts in surprise after overhearing Cat Noir announcing to Plagg that he renounces him, both of Tikki's antennas are detached from her head.
  • At the end of the special, the wrong flag of France was shown. The red part is touching the flagpole, when in reality the blue one should.
  • Throughout the whole episode, the area around Hawk Moth's eyes is darker than usual, making it look as if he's wearing eyeliner.
  • When Cat Noir returned to Ladybug, he detransformed out of his Astro form but didn't say the words to deactivate it. Maybe when a young holder grows they don't need to say the detransformation words to remove their powered up transformations just like how an adult doesn't need a trigger word to activate their superpowers.
  • When Ladybug is saving Sparrow from Victory's missles, she can be seen with another yo-yo wrapped around her waist.
  • When Alya sees Marinette outside, Camilla Hombee's eyes and eye sockets are all black.
    • However, it may be because she wears black eyeshadow.
  • In one scene where the French American Heroes were trying to chase Sparrow, both Hurricane and Sting's suit were miscolored.
  • In one shot inside Marinette's purse when she is walking sadly after Adrien's renunciation of his Miraculous, Plagg is gone; in his place seems to be a creepy, discolored Nooroo.
  • When Juleka and Rose are looking at Majestia through the airplane window, Juleka's hair goes through her shoulder.
  • When Sparrow landed on the plane, she had wings as part of her suit. However, she didn't have any wings as part of his suit throughout the rest of the special.
  • When Doorman opens a portal to help the kids escape, his glasses are missing the pink glass in them.
  • Normally in New York City, the streets are packed. Yet in this episode there was no one except the main characters on the street.
    • This can also be said for Paris in the rest of the episodes, as it has 2 million inhabitants and many more tourists, yet there seem to be no more than 30 people in any given scene.
      • This is averted in "Miraculous Shanghai", where there are considerably more people in scenes set in the city.
