Pollen is a kwami. Pollen is connected to the Bee Miraculous.

At your service, my queen!

—Pollen, Malediktator

Click here to see quotes from Pollen.

Pollen[8] is the kwami of Subjection[9] who is connected to the Bee Miraculous.[10] With her power, Pollen's wearer can use the hair comb to transform into a bee-themed superhero.

Pollen is currently living with Marinette Dupain-Cheng while her Miraculous is dormant within the Chinese Miracle Box. When the situation requires it, she temporarily becomes active to help Zoé Lee transform into Vesperia.

Appearance

Pollen is a yellow creature that is 10 centimeters (or 4 inches) tall.[2] Three curved stripes wrap around her head, and each stripe grows smaller as it ascends up her forehead. Her small stinger, visible at the rear, is also striped. Her antennae, arms, and feet are black, while her eyes are golden with blue sclerae. She has a row of white upper teeth, and she has black eyelashes. A small light yellow tuft is located below her head and around her neck, with a small area reaching onto her stomach.

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

Personality

Pollen appears to have a formal and polite personality, greeting Tikki and Plagg as the "noble kwamis of creation and destruction" as shown in "Sandboy".

As shown in "Style Queen", "Queen Wasp", and "Malediktator", she is very submissive, obedient, and respectful towards her owner, as she calls Chloé "My Queen" and promptly transforms her into Queen Bee, despite it meaning everyone getting to know the latter's identity.

Despite being submissive and obedient, Pollen isn't afraid to speak up as she tried to convince Chloé not to use her powers for evil. Like Tikki, she tries to be very responsible with her powers and encourages her wielders to do the same. It's also implied that she is very understanding, because despite not being able to talk to Chloe, she likely would've agreed with Ladybug's reasoning, not wanting to see her wielder get hurt or have her powers used for evil this shows her caring and considerate side. Similar to her kwami friend, Ziggy, she is also sensitive when her feelings are hurt.

Like her fellow kwamis, Pollen has gotten used to moving from one owner to the next as she's fine working with Zoé despite knowing her "New Queen" is related to her former queen.

Abilities

Pollen is able to fly, levitate, phase through solid objects, and carry objects larger and/or heavier than herself.

As a kwami, Pollen gives the wearer the power of subjection (the power to immobilize an opponent) and transforms them into a bee-themed superhero by entering the Bee Miraculous. Whenever an underage wearer uses Venom, Pollen begins losing power and eventually detransforms in about five minutes. Pollen then has to recharge by eating.

In "Optigami" Pollen has the ability to merge with Tikki to help Marinette stop Style Queen.

Relationships

Chloé Bourgeois

Pollen is ready to serve Chloé.

Not much is known about Pollen's relationship with Chloé, but as far as being seen, she has befriended Chloé quickly and is very respectful with her, calling her "My Queen". She also doesn't object when Chloé transforms in front of a crowd of people. After Ladybug trusted Chloé with the Bee Miraculous in "Malediktator", Pollen and Chloé continued working together as Queen Bee in "Catalyst", "Mayura", and a final time in "Miraculer".

In "Heart Hunter", however, Pollen tries to convince Chloé to not side with Hawk Moth or to use the Bee Miraculous for evil, but Chloé wouldn't hear Pollen out and ordered her not to speak unless spoken to, which hurt her feelings. After Chloé's defeat in "Miracle Queen", Pollen sees her run off, saddened, and heartbroken by her wielder's betrayal. Ever since then it's unknown if Pollen has gotten over her former owner's betrayal.

Tikki and Plagg

Pollen greets Tikki and Plagg.

Just like with the other kwamis, Pollen seems to be good friends with Tikki and Plagg, formally greeting them as the "noble kwamis of creation and destruction" when they arrive inside the Miracle Box.

She was willing to help Marinette rescue Tikki and Plagg from Kwamibuster.

Zoé Lee

Not much is known about Pollen's relationship with Zoé, though so far, she seems to be very respectful of her, despite the fact she is the half-sister of her former owner, even addressing her as "My Queen" and assisting Zoé in her transformation without question.

Trivia

  • Pollen was first revealed by Jeremy Zag with a picture posted on his Instagram. The image was captioned: "New Kwami means new superhero!? 🤔.... hummm... Maybe! 😋👍 Miraculous Ladybug Season 2 is coming guys !!!!"[11]
    • Another image of Pollen was shown during an interview between Lindalee Rose and Cristina Vee.[12]
  • The background of the teaser images is a blurred shot of Notre-Dame Cathedral.
  • Pollen's name was revealed when Thomas Astruc confirmed a fan's correct guess during a Twitter contest.[8]
  • In concept art, Pollen's eyes had neither pupils nor irises, only their blue sclerae, and her sclerae were much darker.
  • Although the owner of the Bee Miraculous has been akumatized twice, both times were while transformed, so Pollen herself has not been seen under the effects of an akuma.
  • Astruc has stated that if the Miraculous is destroyed, the kwami survives but is no longer able to be seen or felt. Thus, while the Bee Miraculous was destroyed, Pollen survived.[13]
    • She is the third kwami to have her Miraculous destroyed, preceded by Fluff and Plagg in "Timebreaker" and followed by Nooroo in "Miraculous Shanghai" and Wayzz in "Optigami".
  • The way Pollen is so ready to "serve" Chloé is a reflection of how bees are devoted to their queen.
  • Pollen's name and bee-like appearance is also a reflection of the symbiotic relationship bees have with flowers.
  • She is the third kwami whose powers were used for evil in "Battle of the Miraculous", following Nooroo and Duusu.
  • Pollen holds the record for the kwamis with the most indirect akumatizations with 3.
