Tikki is the kwami of creation that 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 (4 inches) tall.[5] She has a tiny body, a large head, dark blue eyes, and freckles across her face.[6] 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, loving, kind, and encouraging.[7] She is very understanding towards others, commended Marinette for not telling Cat Noir her secret identity in "Lady Wifi" and comprehended with Marinette's parent's decision of grounding her, mindful that Ladybug's responsibilities for keeping her identity a secret is important.

In "Syren", where she and Wayzz understood the danger of what would happen if she or any other kwami were captured with the Miraculous spellbook's knowledge, showing her curious, obedient and loyal side.

Having a lot of wisdom and is always looking for the bright side of things, Tikki is very open to giving advice, and she will call people out for bad decisions if necessary. According to Marinette in "Tikki (webisode)", she is quite observant, as seen in "Mr. Pigeon" where she called Xavier Ramier a unique character like a "human bird", inspiring Marinette to make a pigeon derby hat.

Although she can become annoyed or exasperated with others, Tikki doesn't stay upset at them for long, only wanting what's best for them and those around them. She can be hurt or displeased when someone isn't paying attention or appreciates her, displeased with Marinette unintentionally disregards her gift to her in "Befana". 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 in "Princess Fragrance" meaning that she is dedicated to her responsibility as a kwami although a bit reckless. She can also act a bit rash if she needs to achieve something important, like getting the Miraculous spellbook from Adrien in "Volpina".

Tikki tends to take things literally, when Marinette asked the question, "Please tell me I didn't just do that?" and answered her in "The Mime". As well as in "Dark Cupid", like 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 in "Guitar Villain" and playing a pretend fencing match with her in "Riposte". Unlike Plagg and as described by Marinette in "Despair Bear", 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, as seen in "Despair Bear" and "Glaciator", but one of her apparent favorite foods is chocolate chip cookies as seen in multiple episodes in Season 1 and 2.

However, she is honest to where she admitted to Marinette the importance of a kwami's cycle. Also in "Heroes' Day", where she encouraged her to be honest about her mistake.


She was also disappointed with Marinette when she wasn't being honest with her feelings towards Cat Noir during "Weredad".


Abilities

CC (171)

Tikki phasing through a locker door.

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

LB Transformation (11)

Tikki entering the Ladybug Miraculous.

As a kwami, Tikki gives 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, she usually knows what is going on during that time, being aware that Marinette wasted her power as Ladybug due to jealousy in "The Bubbler" and saying to her that it was cool she complimented Alya when she was surrounded by the press earlier in The Mime". Whenever the wearer uses Lucky Charm, Tikki begins losing power and eventually detransforms in about 5 minutes. Then Tikki has to recharge by eating.

When fed the correct potion, Tikki can access a form known as "Aqua Tikki". Aqua Tikki is able to provide her holder additional abilities, such as 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". Stalac Tikki is able to provide her holder additional parts to their suit, such as skates.

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.
  • Tikki's name means "happiness" in another language.[8]
    • Her name may also be based on the Estonian word "teke", meaning "creation."
  • Tikki is based on ladybugs, who are known as symbols of love, good luck, and protection.
  • She is the first and oldest kwami, having formed when the universe came to be, as revealed in the second issue of Miraculous Adventures.
  • 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.
    • Tikki accidentally flung out of Marinette's purse in "Princess Fragrance", and pretends to be a doll when Chloé finds her.
      • In the same episode, Marinette describes her as a special breed of cat to Wang Fu.
    • In "Animan", Alya overhears Marinette talking to Tikki over the phone, but she believes she is talking to her.
    • In "Pixelator", two civilians notice Tikki in Marinette's purse and pretends to be a cat when spotted.
    • Adrien's bodyguard sees Marinette talking to Tikki while she's in her purse in "Guitar Villain" and looks at Marinette suspiciously.
    • Tikki is almost seen by Cat Noir in "Befana" when Marinette attempts to transform but she stops before he gets to her.
  • In an interview, Mela Lee revealed that Tikki likes baking, but that she is too small to bake, and so she will spend time just reading recipe books.[9]
  • In the Webisode called Homework Essay, Marinette wants to write an essay about how inspiring Tikki is but is prevented from doing so by the fact kwamis are meant to be kept secret.
  • In "Sandboy", just as Marinette doesn't like to be called Bugaboo by Cat Noir; Tikki doesn't like to be called Sugar Cube by Plagg.
  • Tikki seems to be aware of the effects of the magic ladybugs when the Miraculous Ladybug (superpower) is used seen in "Style Queen".
