"Imagine your world as a school notebook. Everything inside is written in blue, but now you want it to be red instead. Before you can rewrite anything in the color you like, you have to erase everything that's already been written in blue!"

"That's what happens when someone makes a wish! The universe is destroyed, and then entirely rebuilt! But who knows how..."

Sass and Barkk, "Ephemeral"

The Quantic Universe is the universe where the story of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir takes place.

Summary

According to Thomas Astruc, "[The Quantic Universe] is the extended universe in which live Ladybug and Cat Noir. Ladybug is to the Quantic Universe as to what Spider-Man is to the Marvel-verse, or Batman to the DC-verse. Quantic Universe is filled [with] super-heroes in all countries, alien races, magic... Ladybug is just a tiny part of it. Hopefully, if the series is successful, [the crew] will be able to explore it."[1] He also explained in an interview that while Ladybug, Cat Noir, and their relationship is the main focus of the Miraculous Ladybug series, the crew wants to keep expanding the universe, adding new characters and looking deeper into all of the Miraculouses stored in the Miracle Box.[2] For a while, Miraculous holders were the only known type of superheroes. However, Thomas Astruc has confirmed that other superheroes with abilities unrelated to Miraculouses are in existence within the Quantic Universe. [3] This was first confirmed in-universe in the Miraculous New York special, in which both superheroes without superpowers (such as Knightowl, Sparrow, and Victory), as well as superheroes with superpowers not given by miraculouses (like Majestia and Doorman), exist.

History

At the beginning of the universe, the first kwami, Tikki, came into existence. After her, other kwamis were formed throughout the early days of the universe whenever new ideas or emotions were born, such as beauty and love. They weren't able to be detected by humanity until a mage created the Miraculouses. Because of the Miraculouses, not only could kwamis can now interact with humans, they could also transform them into super-powered beings.

To protect the Miraculouses, the Order of the Guardians was formed, watching over and distributing the Miraculouses. Many Miraculous holders existed around the world at different times, including in ancient civilizations, the Middle Ages, and modern periods. Despite existing for many years, sometime in the 19th century, a mistake made by a young member in training named Wang Fu resulted in the Order of the Guardians falling apart, their temple getting destroyed, and the Butterfly Miraculous, Peacock Miraculous, and Miraculous spellbook being lost. Fu escaped, and he kept the Miracle Box with its remaining Miraculouses.

In the present day, many superheroes exist around the world. Majestia and Knightowl were well-known and popular, even having comic books based on them. An American superhero, Victory, is the President of the USA. All known American superheroes are part of a team of heroes called the United Heroez.

Meanwhile, in recent years there wasn't any kind of superhero in France. However, Gabriel Agreste found the Butterfly Miraculous and became Hawk Moth. With his superpower, he created other supervillains in order to bring out the Ladybug Miraculous and Cat Miraculous, take them away from their holders, and use them together to wish for a secret desire. Living in Paris at the time, Fu planned to fight back and stop Hawk Moth from making his wish come true, thereby circumventing its horrible consequences. After realizing he couldn't do it alone, Fu gave the Ladybug and Cat Miraculouses respectively to Parisian teenagers Marinette Dupain-Cheng and Adrien Agreste.

As the danger in Paris grew, so did Ladybug and Cat Noir, figuring out the powers of their jewels, growing in allies and not only that they also gained clues to figuring out Hawk Moth's secret dream.

In the future the French Miraculous superhero team return as adults as Paris is under the threat of a new Hawk Moth.

Geography

Big Ben, with the London Eye in the background, stands tall in London, the capital and largest city of the United Kingdom.

Trivia

  • At San Diego Comic-Con International 2016, it was revealed that the universe would be expanded as a comic book universe, which would feature other Miraculous holders and other types of heroes in the world.[4]
    • Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug is about Ladybug visiting Shanghai and meeting Chinese superheroes.[5]
    • Miraculous: Tales of Cat Noir focuses on Cat Noir visiting America and meeting new ZAG Heroez, suggesting that Miraculous exists in the same universe as them.[6]
    • Tales of Miraculous features stories of previous Miraculous holders from settings like ancient Egypt, China, Japan, and the Middle Ages.[7]
      • Real people from history, such as Jeanne d'Arc and Tomoe Gozen, and mythological figures, such as Herakles and Cernunnos, exist in this universe as Miraculous holders. Whether their histories and legends are the same or they have been modified has yet to be seen.
    • However, outside of the original announcements, no other information is known about them, which makes it very likely that the projects have been cancelled, or not having been greenlit in the first place.
  • It is possible that Melodie, Kid Mime and Gavroche from Quantic Kids, a superhero team that Ladybug and Cat Noir were a part of in an unused concept, still exist in this world.[1]
    • Sparrow, another member of the unused team, is confirmed to exist in the universe as a superhero and a member of the United Heroez in "Miraculous New York".
      • However, this version is a girl and the daughter of Knightowl, who is also a woman. At the end of the special, she starts using the Eagle Miraculous, and becomes another hero, Eagle.
    • Mercury, who was also a member of the team, is another member of the United Heroez and appeared in "Miraculous New York". However, the current Mercury is an adult, opposite to the original one who was supposed to be a teenager.
    • Previously, according to Astruc, it was also possible that Félix Agreste, the first version of Cat Noir before Adrien, still existed in some way there.[8] However, Astruc later stated that Félix will never appear.[9]
      • However, a different version of Félix starts appearing in the show from the Season 3 episode "Félix". That Félix is Adrien's maternal cousin, and is a villain.
      • Not only that the first of Cat Noir Félix Agreste, was also used in the in universe anime movies created by Thomas Astruc in "Animaestro" and sequel in "Rocketear".
  • Majestia Issue #56, a comic appearing in "Ladybug & Cat Noir (Origins - Part 1)", is published by the company Quantic Comics, which is a reference to the Quantic Universe.
  • If he isn't able to explore the Miraculous universe, Thomas has another universe he's creating.[10]
  • Even though the Quantic Universe has some similarities to the history of the real world Universe there are some differences:
    • In Egyptian history, King Tut ruled Egypt 5000 years ago but in the real world it was King Menes.
      • King Tut's real world counterpart ruled 3,300 years ago.
      • He was married to Princess Nefertiti but in reality he was married to Ankhesenamun.
      • Also Nefertiti is depicted in reality as a queen.
        • However, according to Thomas Astruc, the names in the English dub aren't supposed to match their real-world counterparts, while the ones in the French dub are the correct ones.[11]
    • In Mexican history, La Mariquita took part the War of Independence as a Miraculous holder in the Quantic Universe but she has no real world counterpart.
    • In Chinese history, the first known book (Miraculous spellbook) was created somewhere in between 2070 BC-221 BC but in reality the first printed book in China wasn't until 868 AD.
    • Multiple disastrous events such as sinking Atlantis, leaning the tower of Pisa and extinction of the dinosaurs and the dragons in the real world was caused by natural disasters, faulty construction and many others reasons.
      • In the Quantic Universe all that destruction was done by Plagg when he used his powers in the past without his owners.
    • According to Plagg, genies do exist (in the Quantic Universe) but in the real world they are entirely fictional.
    • According to Su-Han, dragons do exist (in the Quantic Universe) but in the real world they are entirely fictional.
    • Mages do exist (in the Quantic Universe) but in the real world they are entirely fictional.
    • It's true in the real world people can live up to 100 years old and over but in the Quantic universe people can live close to about 200 years or more as in the case with Master Fu and his lifestyle or in the case of other the guardians who were trapped in a place where time doesn't exist.
    • The concept of chocolate mousse was created by Tikki not humans.
    • The legend of Lochness Monster was created by Trixx while in reality no one really knows the legend started in Scotland.
