Tikki is the kwami of Creation who is connected to the Ladybug Miraculous, and with her power, its wearer can use the earrings to transform into a ladybug-themed superhero, the current wearer being Marinette Dupain-Cheng.

Appearance

Tikki is a small crimson creature that is 10 centimeters (or 4 inches) tall.[7] She has a tiny body, a large head, dark blue eyes, and freckles across her face.[8] She resembles a ladybug, with two antennae, a large black spot on her forehead, back, and each side of her head, and a short tail with three tips aligned vertically.

Personality

DC S01EP10 (105)

Tikki, not understanding Marinette's idiom, about to pinch her.

Tikki is calm and collected while being optimistic, kind, and encouraging.[9] She is very understanding towards others, commended Marinette for not telling Cat Noir her secret identity and comprehended with her parents' decision of grounding her, mindful that Ladybug's responsibilities for keeping her identity a secret is important.

She isn't judgmental as she is willing to give others a chance and respectful towards other people's privacy, trying to stop Marinette from looking through the phones of Adrien and Kagami, although she ended up helping to get the former's phone.


Although she can become annoyed or exasperated with others, Tikki doesn't stay upset at them for long, only wanting what is best for them and those around them. Though rarely seen, she does have a bit of a temper when Plagg refused to help their holders in their amnesiac state.

Having a lot of wisdom and is always looking for the bright side of things, Tikki is very open to giving advice, whatever practical or moral. She will call people out for bad decisions if necessary. She can be hurt or displeased when someone isn't paying attention or appreciates her, displeased with Marinette unintentionally disregards her gift to her. Unlike Plagg, Tikki is more honest with and tends to tell more things to Marinette, admitting to her the importance of a kwami's cycle. Likewise, she encouraged Marinette to be honest about her mistake and being disappointed with Marinette when she wasn't being honest with her feelings towards Cat Noir, Chris and her grandfather.

Tikki believes in the importance of saving the world above her own needs, even willing to help Marinette transform instead of seeing Wang Fu and getting herself healed, meaning that she is dedicated to her responsibility as a kwami although a bit reckless. Despite her curiosity about her potential powers, she understood the danger of what would happen if she or any other kwami were captured with the Miraculous spellbook's knowledge, showing her loyal side. Tikki can act a bit rash if she needs to achieve something important, like getting the Miraculous spellbook from Adrien.

Tikki tends to take things literally, when Marinette asked the question, "Please tell me I didn't just do that?" and answered her. When Marinette asks someone to pinch her, thinking she means it or when she believes Alya is heading to a dentist because she didn't understand what a surprise party was or how humans celebrate their birthdays. Sometimes, Tikki shows a more playful and affectionate side, playing an air guitar solo with Marinette and playing a pretend fencing match with her. She has a sweet tooth, which means she isn't a picky eater and is willing to try different foods to get her energy back up or just out of curiosity, but one of her apparent favorite foods is chocolate chip cookies as seen in multiple episodes.

A rarely seen side of her is that she can be a bit hesitant and panicky in a time of crisis until she is reminded of her current task similarly like Marinette.


Abilities

General skills

According to Marinette, Tikki is quite observant, where she called Xavier Ramier a unique character like a "human bird", inspiring her owner to make a pigeon derby hat. Like Marinette, Tikki is very resourceful and quick-thinking, planning to contact with Nooroo while being aware of Akumas with Plagg and Wayzz (though this plan ended up failing), deciding to search for another holder to transform after she lost her owner, and lure Oblivio in the opposite direction of her allies' location.

As a kwami

LB Transformation (11)

Tikki entering the Ladybug Miraculous.

Tikki is able to fly and levitate simultaneously. Tikki can pass through solid objects, such as a locker door so she can unlock while helping Marinette get Adrien's phone or the lock of Marinette's chains, which she opened when Captain Hardrock. Tikki can carry things that weigh more than her, such as bringing an apple to Marinette without struggle until she trips over a spool of thread or carrying a History Book without much struggle.

As a kwami, Tikki possess and can give the wearer the power of creation (good luck) and transforms them into a ladybug-themed superhero by entering the Ladybug Miraculous. Although unable to communicate to the wearer while they are transformed, Tikki usually knows what is going on during that time, being aware that Marinette wasted her power as Ladybug due to jealousy and saying to her that it was cool she complimented Alya when she was surrounded by the press earlier. Whenever the wearer uses Lucky Charm, she begins losing power and detransforms in about 5 minutes. Then she has to recharge by eating.

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

  • With the water potion, Tikki's form is known as "Aqua Tikki". She gives her holder breathing underwater and additional parts to their suit, such as flippers.
  • When fed the ice potion, Tikki can access a form known as "Stalac Tikki". She is able to provide her holder enhanced resistance to low temperatures and additional parts to their suit, such as skates.
During "Kwamibuster", she briefly fuses her powers with Mullo to become Multibug. It seems that Tikki can fuse her powers with Longg's to create the hybrid wielder Dragon Bug.

Trivia

  • PV HQ (2)

    Marinette cuddling Tikki in the Ladybug PV.

    Tikki's current design is different than it was in the Ladybug PV. In the PV, she is red with a dark brown four-leaf clover on her forehead and black eyes, and she is much bigger, being around the size of Marinette's head.
  • Tikki is the only kwami who is referred to by the feminine pronoun in Season 1.
    • This is true in every dub except for the Korean and Turkish dubs, where Nooroo is considered female.

  • There have been cases where Tikki has been accidentally heard or noticed by people.
    • Alya overhears Marinette's and Tikki's conversation in "Lady Wifi" and "The Mime".
    • Cat Noir almost sees Tikki when he is trapped with Marinette in "The Evillustrator", but Marinette manages to hide her.
