But Master, the Miraculouses are not meant to be used for evil purposes!

—Nooroo to Gabriel Agreste, "Ladybug & Cat Noir (Origins - Part 1)"

Click here to see quotes from Nooroo.

Nooroo[2] is the kwami of Transmission[3] who is connected to the Butterfly Miraculous, and with his power, his wearer can use the brooch to transform into a butterfly-themed superhero, the current wearer being Gabriel Agreste, who uses it for evil.


Nooroo is a little, purple, butterfly-like creature, who is 10 centimeters tall.[4] He has butterfly wings that have a long tail with a tip at the end of each lower wing and dark purple eyes. There is a slightly dark purple spiral mark on his forehead and one on each lower part of the back of his wings.

For more of Nooroo's designs, see Nooroo/Designs.



Nooroo attempts to tell Gabriel that the Miraculous aren't meant for evil.

Nooroo is a knowledgeable, helpful, and empathetic kwami. He shows a bit of his curious side in "Gorizilla" when Gabriel thought Adrien might be Cat Noir.

Though he reluctantly succumbs to Gabriel's demands to help him get the Ladybug Miraculous and Cat Miraculous, Nooroo is distressed that he is helping someone use the Butterfly Miraculous for evil reasons. He also has a formal side, calling his holder Master instead of his real name.

Nooroo scared by Gabriel.

In addition to this, Nooroo is sometimes scared of Gabriel and is quite meek with him, such as in “Syren”, when Gabriel interrogated him on how to obtain more powers. Also in “Sandboy”, when he attempts to sneak away but is caught by Gabriel, Nooroo appears frightened and meekly tries to explain his motives. When Gabriel later learns that there are more kwamis and tells Nooroo that he wants to find them all, Nooroo is scared and concerned for his friends.

In "Stormy Weather 2", Nooroo demonstrates a remorseful side, being aware of the damage that's been happening with his powers.

Nooroo transforms Gabriel into Hawk Moth.

Nooroo is able to fly, levitate, phase through solid objects, and carry things that are large and/or heavy for him.

As a kwami, Nooroo gives the wearer the power of transmission and transforms them into a moth-themed superhero by entering the Butterfly Miraculous. Whenever the wearer uses Akumatization, Nooroo begins losing power and eventually detransforms in about five minutes, although the specifics of the power that starts the power loss is currently uncertain. Then Nooroo has to recharge by eating.


Gabriel Agreste


Nooroo conceding to Gabriel's orders, unwillingly.

Nooroo is treated like a slave by Gabriel and is completely under his will. He isn't pleased with his treatment or being forced to help a villain, but he submits to Gabriel's commands as he has no choice and tells him everything he wants to know. While Nooroo does attempt to tell him that the Miraculouses aren't meant to be used for evil, Gabriel refuses to listen and even yells at him.

SB (87)

Nooroo asks Gabriel if he can go out for his birthday.

Nooroo is not allowed to be more than a few feet away from Gabriel or communicate with anyone else besides him as seen in "Sandboy". He also isn't always sure what Gabriel is thinking or feeling, surprised when Gabriel renounces him in "The Collector" and "Queen Wasp (Queen's Battle - Part 2)". Despite his master mistreating him all the time, Nooroo still cares about Gabriel’s condition as seen in “Mayura (Heroes' Day - Part 2)” after the latter de-transforms upon suffering from a huge defeat.

In "Stormy Weather 2", despite being afraid of Gabriel, Nooroo does gain the courage to advise him to spend more time with his son and to stop his dark path before he loses him, though Gabriel refuses to listen and even seals his mouth shut.

Adrien Agreste

GZ (293)

Nooroo asks Gabriel if Adrien really is Cat Noir.

Nooroo hasn't met Adrien in person, but he does know that he is Gabriel's son and expresses curiosity over the possibility of him being Cat Noir in "Gorizilla".

During "Stormy Weather 2", Nooroo is even caring towards Adrien. When Gabriel senses negative emotions, Nooroo believes that they might be Adrien's and advises Gabriel to spend more time with him.

Other Kwamis

Nooroo becomes concerned for his kwami friends.

Nooroo appears to be quite close to the other kwamis and likely misses them a lot. In “Sandboy”, the kwamis try to communicate with Nooroo to wish him a happy 3500th cycle and save him from Hawk Moth's control, but the plan goes awry. When Gabriel later tells Nooroo that he wants to capture all the kwamis as to have unlimited powers at his disposal, Nooroo becomes very concerned for his friends.


Nooroo appears to be friends with Duusu, and in "Reflekdoll", he seems to be deeply concerned for her mental condition.

  1. Tikki in Sandboy/Transcript: He's celebrating his thirty-five hundredth cycle today .. A kwami's cycle lasts several hundreds of human years." Even if a cycle was merely 200 human years ("the bare minimum of "hundreds", though "several" implies more) this would make Nooroo at least 700,000 human years old.
