|~ Marinette Dupain-Cheng|
Marinette Dupain-Cheng is one of the main protagonists of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir. Marinette is a student at Collège Françoise Dupont in Paris, France. She is also a budding fashion designer. With her magical earrings, inhabited by a Kwami named Tikki, she has the power of creation and can transform into the superhero Ladybug.
In “Reflekdoll”, Marinette obtains the Black Cat Miraculous, which when inhabited by Plagg, will be able to transform her into Lady Noir.
In "Kwamibuster", after Tikki is captured by the titular villain, Marinette wears multiple Miraculous but activates the Mouse Miraculous to become Multimouse, a mouse-themed superhero. In the same episode, Multimouse's various copies transform with the Mouse Miraculous combined with the Ladybug, Black Cat and Fox Miraculous to become Multibug, Multinoir, and Multifox respectively.
In "Ladybug", after being expelled from school, she is akumatized by Scarlet Moth into Princess Justice. However, her Alumatization is interrupted because of Nathalie Sancoeur's illness and it is never completed.
In "Miracle Queen," after Miracle Queen brainwashes the temporary Miraculous holders to be her slaves, Marinette wears the Dragon Miraculous combined with the Ladybug, to become Dragon Bug. Since then, Marinette becomes the new Guardian of the Miraculouses after Master Fu relinquishes his role as Guardian and passes it to her.

Intelligence: Gifted. It’s an expert tactician and observant. Not only capable of using the most unusual things as a tool to win a battle (even beyond her Lucky Charm) but also exploit the environment and her foes' weaknesses as much as possible to her favor, making her well known for being able to come with the right plan at the right time. Has years of experience fighting against several types of villains with all kinds of abilities. A natural leader and a master at the usage of her yo-yo. Excels at fashion design, having her talent been praised and referred to as “exceptional” by Audrey Bourgeois, the harshest fashion critic; additionally being sly enough to subtly hide her signature in each one of her designs to avoid any sort of stealing. Skilled at sketching and baking as well as showcasing a decent amount of talent in areas like fencing, singing and skating despite not being used to them.
Weaknesses: Using her Lucky Charm power can shorten the time she spends in her Ladybug form (After using her power, she will be forced to revert 5 minutes after). Unable to call out her Lucky Charm or Miraculous Ladybug without her voice. Powers would be lost if her earings are taken | Using her Cataclysm power can shorten the time she spends in her Lady Noir form (After using her power, she will be forced to revert 5 minutes after).

|“||No more evil-doing for you, little akuma. Time to de-evilize!||„|
|~ Ladybug's catchphrase|
Yo-yo Mastery: Ladybug excels at the usage of her Yo-yo, which she can control through her will and can use as a weapon, both offensively and defensively, to hit enemies with it like a projectile or tie them up with its string. It works as a grappling hook, which Ladybug can swing from and use to travel far distances. When swung in a circle very quickly, it lights up pink and creates a shield able to deflect and withstand strong attacks. The string of the yo-yo is even strong enough to cut through the Eiffel Tower and, according to Ladybug, indestructible. It can even create safety nets used to catch people from falling or even something as big as a police car or a helicopter.
The yo-yo is useful for some of Ladybug's special abilities. Whenever something corrupts or infects an object or animal, the yo-yo can capture and purify them back to normal. The yo-yo opens up, showing glowing pink energy, and it closes around the infected animal or object. It opens again with them healed or clean, such as akumas getting purified into ordinary butterflies again or Mr. Squid in the fourth issue of Miraculous Adventures being purified from the unknown black substance. The yo-yo can contain things larger than the yo-yo itself, and it can hold more than one object at once, from a stuffed animal to a huge swarm of akumas.
One side of the yo-yo can slide open, revealing a screen. With this, Ladybug can use the yo-yo as a tracker, a map, a communicator to contact Cat Noir, or a cellular phone. Additionally, it can access the internet. The yo-yo can also work as a breathing apparatus for those who can't breathe underwater
Lucky Charm: A special superpower used by Ladybug. Ladybug flings her yo-yo high into the air, and energy shoots out from it. It spins around until it forms an object that is red with black polka dots. By observing the area around her, Ladybug can figure out how to use this object for what she desires, like defeating a villain. These objects are usually lackluster, such as everyday items like forks and cloths however, but it seems that the Miraculous makes anything she can use to win. While Lucky Charm is a very helpful superpower, Ladybug has to be careful when she utilizes it, as she runs out of power and must revert back to normal about five minutes afterwards.
Miraculous Ladybug: After defeating any villain, Ladybug throws the object she uses Lucky Charm into the air and yells "Miraculous Ladybug!". This generates an explosion of pink energy, eventually dispersing into small ladybugs that fly around Paris and fix any damage done since the appearance of the villain, including healing those who were hurt by an akumatized villain.
It not only fixes the villain's damage, but can also fix the damage done by other Miraculous powers, such as Queen Bee's Venom, as well as Cat Noir's Cataclysm like with him being struck with his power. As indicated in the third issue of Miraculous Adventures, the Miraculous Ladybug might be able clean up any damage, not just damage caused by a villain.
Miraculous Power Ups: Within Season 2, it is revealed that when giving kwami's a certain potion, they can temporarily transform, and therefore can transform their wielder Ladybug. Marinette has made macarons with a selection of different potions in them in order to change Tikki into different forms. Note that in order to change modes, Marinette cannot be in her Ladybug form, as she has to tend to Tikki separately for now.
- Aqua: Ladybug gains the ability to swim much more effectively, with flippers and fins fitted onto her costume, while also being able to breathe underwater and travel freely underwater.
- Ice: Ladybug gains ice skates that allow her to skate on icy surfaces and further resistance to cold temperatures.
Cataclysm: A special superpower used by Lady Noir. Lady Noir infuses her ring hand with bad luck destructive energy. Whatever she touches with it right afterwards is affected negatively: every object affected by the bad luck is corroded and breaks or is easily breakable afterwards. While Cataclysm is a very helpful superpower, Lady Noir has to be careful when she utilizes it, as she runs out of power and must revert back to normal about five minutes afterwards. It is also unknown how it affects living things. However, Miraculous Holders have shown to be able to resist its destructive power, but they still get seriously injured
Multitude: A special superpower used by Multimouse. Multimouse jumps and throws her jumping rope in the air, then it comes down and wraps around her, causing her legs to shine. Afterwards, she's able to create multiple miniature clones of herself with varying sizes depending on how many clones she creates. To end the effects of Multitude, the Multimouse clones join together and Multimouse grows to regular size as well.
Miraculous Unification: In Season 3, Ladybug has the ability to fuse two of her Miraculouses to transform herself into a more powerful form with the combined powers of both Miraculouses.
Multibug have all of Multimouse's powers, but have some new powers as well due to her miraculous unification
