Just think of the illusion you wanna create. Stay focused!

Cat Noir, "Sapotis"

Mirage is the special superpower granted by the Fox Miraculous to its owner.

Description

This superpower allows the user to cast a hyper-realistic illusion.

Miraculous owner

Rena Rouge controlling her illusion.

When the Fox Miraculous owner plays the flute, it creates a ball of white-orange energy at the far end of it. When they swing the flute, the ball of energy will be sent off to cast the illusion of whatever or whomever they are thinking of. The illusion disappears if it is touched.

As seen in "Sentibubbler", the user can cast the illusion without having to play or swing the flute, but it seems the user still has to be holding it.

The illusions can be used over a massive scale, such as to create the image of an entire amusement park, or used on a small scale, such as making someone look like someone else. Illusions of people are even able to speak. The user of Mirage can control their illusions and speak through them.

Mirage can also hide other people, as seen in "Gang of Secrets". It causes them to appear invisible.

The Fox Miraculous owner can dispel the illusion by speaking the cancellation phrase: "Reality". An alternate cancellation phrase: "Mirage Vanish", would also dispel the illusion.

Although Mirage is handy to use, Rena Rouge must use it wisely, as she can only use it once before reverting back into her civilian form after five minutes.

Trixx

As shown in "Gang of Secrets", when Mirage is used directly by Trixx, in addition to casting the intended illusion, it also casts a massive, unpredictable illusion that can cover gigantic structures, even if they are a ways away.

Trivia

  • The illusions created by Volpina are notoriously superior to those of Rena Rouge as she doesn't have the limitation to use only one illusion per transformation, being able to make as many as she wants without transforming back to normal.
    • However, that is an ability used by an adult Fox Miraculous holder meaning that Hawk Moth is capable of amplifying said powers of his akumatized villains.
  • In the Korean dub, it's called Magical Mirage.
  • This power was used by Trixx at least twice: the first time, he used it a long time ago, causing an unknown catastrophe; the second time, he used it to protect Marinette from Lady Wifi and allow the former to transform into Ladybug.
    • In "Sentibubbler", it's revealed that Trixx has used his power to possibly create the myth of the Loch Ness monster. It's possible that was the unknown catastrophe mentioned by Wayzz in "Gang of Secrets".
  • It seems that there are two cancellation phrases to dispel Mirage's illusions, such as "Reality" in "Kwamibuster", "Optigami", "Sentibubbler", and "Rocketear", and "Mirage Vanish" in "Gang of Secrets".
  • Just like Cataclysm, Mirage can work underwater, as seen in "Mr. Pigeon 72".
