Marinette Dupain-Cheng a.k.a. Ladybug is a budding fashion designer at Collège Françoise-Dupont and her family operates a renowned bakery. Marinette is sweet, joyful, and a bit awkward, but respected by her peers. She has a huge crush on Adrien, whom she can barely speak to out of nervousness; her best friend Alya often tries to help Marinette declare her love to him, although it ends in failure. As the secretly chosen keeper of the Ladybug Miraculous, she can transform into the superheroine "Ladybug" with the help of her kwami Tikki, to defend Paris with her crime-fighting partner Cat Noir. As Ladybug, she is more serious, and she brushes off Cat Noir's advances on her, unaware that Cat Noir's alter-ego is the object of her own affections. Her crime-fighting tool is a yo-yo with which she can both use her special power Lucky Charm, that can create an object that she can use with other key objects to defeat the villains, capture and purify the akuma butterflies. Her transformation call is "Tikki, Spots On!" (French: Tikki, transforme-moi !, "Tikki, transform me!"). After she and Cat Noir defeat a villain, they give each other a fist-bump and say "Pound it" (French: Bien joué!, "Good Game").
