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

Cat Noir to Rena Rouge, "Sapotis"

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


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.

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.

The Mirages can also hide other people, as seen in "Gang of Secrets" causing the chosen people to appear as invisible to those who see the illusion.

In "Sentibubbler", it is shown that the user can cast the illusion without having to play or swing the flute, but it seems the user still must be holding it.

As shown in "Rocketear", the owner of the miraculous can not only create illusions of people or objects. They can also create "sound illusions".

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.


Trixx's mirage.gif

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. As an example, after creating an illusion of Marinette to lure away the Gang of Secrets, it also created an illusion of the Eiffel Tower, a gigantic metal tower more than 300 meters tall, located in a completely different part of the city, dancing as if it were in a j-pop music video.


There are four other weaknesses with the power as the user must have a clear and focused mind or it messes with their illusions, and the user can't make such an accurate illusion of something or someone if they don't know what the person, animal or thing is suppose to look like.

The illusions mostly revolve around sight and sound, so if someone has an acute sense of smell they might be able to tell the illusion apart. The illusions aren't solid, with the exception of the illusions interacting with each other, so if someone touches the illusion, it will vanish.

  • 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".
      • Because the myth of the Lock Ness monster is still persisting to the present days and with people claiming having seen it, it's quite possible that Trixx's illusion still remains, proving that his illusions can last for a very long time.
  • 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".
  • When a Mirage disappears the reed flute sound can be heard as in "Sapotis" and "Miracle Queen" etc.
    • However, in "Miraculer" the sound effect is missing when the titular villain gave Ladybug (as Chloé due to the effects of Mirage) her powers back.
    • Or it might simply be background music to provide texture and aural interest that will engage the audience and capture their attention.
