Your stick! There!

Ladybug, "The Bubbler"

The Staff, also called the Stick or Baton, is the tool of the Cat Miraculous.

The current owner of the staff is Adrien Agreste, who uses it as the superhero Cat Noir.


The staff is shiny dark gray with a glowing green paw print near its upper end. It is retractable, and when it is not in use, Cat Noir usually has it attached to his lower back.

As Cat Blanc, the staff is the same color as the rest of his costume which is pure white.


The staff, like Ladybug's yo-yo string, is nearly unbreakable and can be extended to unlimited length. Cat Noir can split it in half or changes its length to use it as a staff, sword, bridge, javelin, or vaulting pole.[1][2] On occasion, to stop something from moving or slowing down, his staff can also work as a blockade seen various episodes. When spun around at high speed, it can generate a gray-colored shield to deflect attacks or be used as a propeller to allow Cat Noir to safely land from great heights.[3]

When the paw print button at the upper end of the staff is pressed, it slides open to reveal a screen. With this, Cat Noir can use the staff as binoculars, a tracker, a map, a phone, or an x-ray. He can also use it as a communicator to contact Ladybug or as a normal cellular phone.[4]

In and out of "Aqua Mode", the staff can also work as a breathing apparatus for those who can't breathe underwater, such as Cat Noir himself in "Reverser" and "Queen Wasp", and Ondine in "Mayura".

Due to the staff's ability to split apart, Cat Noir can use one section for his phone and the rest for fighting, as seen in "Oni-Chan".

In "Miracle Queen", it can also be used as a periscope when under water.
