—Plagg to Adrien in "Sentibubbler"

Click here to see quotes from Plagg.

Plagg[17] is the kwami of Destruction who is connected to the Cat Miraculous.[18][19] With his power, Plagg's wearer can use the ring to transform into a black cat-themed superhero.

Plagg and his Miraculous are currently active, used by Adrien Agreste to transform into Cat Noir.

Appearance

Plagg is a small black creature that is 10 centimeters (or 4 inches) tall.[2] He has a small body and a large head. The insides of his mouth are purple. Plagg's appearance is very cat-like, having cat ears, a tail, two cat incisors, and green cat-like eyes, along with one whisker on his forehead and one dark blue whisker on each cheek. Plagg is also known for the cat species.

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

Personality

Plagg is skeptical towards Adrien's plan to defeat Volpina.

At his best, Plagg can be described as being carefree and easygoing. At his worst, he is negligent, overindulgent, lazy, and sour. He isn't very helpful and doesn't take situations quite as seriously as he should.[20] According to Adrien, he is out of control and arrogant. According to Wang Fu, Plagg is reckless and rebellious without the guidance of an owner, and when he disobeyed Master Fu's order to stay put. Like Adrien, when he is Cat Noir, Plagg is too overconfident with his abilities sometimes leading him into trouble. With him learning time and time again with great power comes great responsibility and when making a mistake one doesn't give up and run away instead one stands up and tries to fix it as in "Miraculous New Special".

He calls himself brave and a free-spirit. Unlike Adrien, he doesn't mind being cooped up and is willing to look on the brighter side of things.[21]

Often making bad choices, Plagg can be quite troublesome, like playing with Chloé's bracelet and causing an argument about it being stolen in the class after it gets stuck on his head. He seems to find others' misfortunes amusing, especially Adrien's, along with the dirty secrets that they keep. He can be quite curious at times when he flew off into Chloé's bag, wanting to see who Ladybug really was, or know what was in Gabriel's safe. Plagg is snarky and can be a bit of a prankster at times, often making sarcastic comments and enjoyed playing the piano with Adrien, as well as playing with one of the wax figurine heads. He also doesn't want Adrien transforms into Cat Noir in fun situations. Like in " The Bubbler" when Adrien wanted to transform, Plagg said no and told him to enjoy the party that the Bubbler made for Adrien.

However, Plagg will be serious if the situation requires him to. He tried to stop Adrien from transforming as he hadn't finished explaining everything about the Cat Miraculous and thinks Adrien's idea to talk Volpina out of causing harm isn't as useful as being Cat Noir.

Outside of his easygoing personality, Plagg can be cool, calm, collected, focused, and encouraging to others, like Tikki. He isn't afraid to speak his mind when something is a bad idea like when Adrien took Ladybug's offer accepting the Snake Miraculous especially when his owner kept being distracted. Yet, unlike Tikki, Plagg is more secretive towards his holder, refusing to tell any secrets about Master Fu to him. Unlike Adrien, he is more cautious around those who are suspicious or sneaky and, like Trixx, is a good judge of character as he described Lila as not a good friend for Adrien.

Quite the picky eater, Plagg only enjoys eating cheese, especially Camembert, which Adrien will feed him not only to fuel his transformation into Cat Noir, but also to bribe him when he isn't being helpful. He will also get distracted by anything that resembles Camembert, including the objects around Adrien's room during his first time there and Chloé's bracelet. Also, according to Adrien, due to his obsession with cheese, Plagg has a bit of a one-track mind with Adrien believing, "You're always thinking with your stomach". His obsession with cheese led him and Tikki to be seen by Ms. Mendeleiev and the latter's akumatization.

Abilities

General skills

Plagg displays a clever side, planning with Tikki and Wayzz to contact Nooroo while being aware of the Akumas (though this plan ended up failing) and tricking Sandboy into the path of an upcoming subway train when the villain was chasing him.

Plagg knows how to play the piano and performs a duet with Adrien. Due to his obsession with cheese, he has a lot of knowledge about cheesemaking, including different types of cheese and how to mature them.[22]

As a kwami

Plagg can fly and levitate. His speed is enough to surpass Sandboy's transportation. Plagg can also pass through solid objects, like when he phases through Gabriel Agreste's safe to get inside and unlock it for Adrien. Despite being small, Plagg can carry objects larger or heavier than him, such as a large slice of camembert or a TV remote. A small jar of stinky cheese on his head without much struggle.

As a kwami, Plagg possesses and can give the wearer the power of destruction and transform them into a black cat-themed superhero by entering the Cat Miraculous. Plagg is able to use Cataclysm by himself without inhabiting a Miraculous, being extremely powerful when not restricted by his wearer, is capable of causing untold destruction. According to Master Fu, he is heavily implied to be responsible for the leaning tower of Pisa, the destruction of Atlantis and, most notably, the extinction of the dinosaurs. This is shown when he uses it to destroy the Eiffel Tower and cause significant damage to a very wide range of the surrounding area. Interestingly enough, he can control his powers when he wants to just as when he used Cataclysm on the street to free Adrien. When Plagg said, "I didn't use Cataclysm I swear" in "Stormy Weather 2", it's implied that his powers are strong enough to make a volcano erupt and cause other natural disasters.

However, as stated by Tikki, his control over his power is rather limited and may cause significant damage than necessary if he did so against more durable materials like Kwamibuster's canister.

There were rare incidents where Tikki would go crazy through her sweet tooth causing her to use her powers to satisfy her hungry and due to the dangers Plagg's were always used to stops Tikki's from causing more damage than it.

Since kwamis give their owners the abilities of the jewels; for example when Adrien is Cat Noir, he can see in the dark which should imply that Plagg has night vision too when he isn't fused with Adrien.

During the time his wearer is transformed, Plagg is aware of what is going on, albeit not able to communicate with them. For example, he remembers the events going on while Adrien was under the influence of Dark Cupid's arrow and informs him that he was rude to Ladybug and he fought against her. Whenever the wearer uses Cataclysm, he begins losing power and eventually detransforms in about 5 minutes. He has to recharge by eating Camembert, which Adrien doesn't like the smell of.

When fed the correct potion, Plagg can access different forms and provide his holder additional abilities:

  • With the water potion, Plagg's form is known as "Aqua Plagg". He grants his holder the ability to breathe underwater and additional parts to their suit, such as flippers.
  • When fed the ice potion, Plagg can access a form known as "Plagglacier". He is able to provide his holder enhanced resistance to low temperatures and additional parts to their suit, such as skates.
  • When fed the space potion, Plagg gives his holder the ability to fly and survive in space. This is the only known superpower that shows Cat Noir eating the magic cheese and not Plagg.

It seems that Plagg can fuse his powers with Mullo' and Sass' to create the hybrid wielders Multinoir and Snake Noir.

According to the United States Geological Survey, those went extinct 66 million years ago. "I did go too far there, but I was young."
