For a brief period Adrichat became an extremely popular joke in the Miraculous Ladybug fandom. It may have started with one user suggesting that Adrien would search his name and "Chat Noir" to check if anyone suspected his secret identity, then instead find RPF fanfic himself and himself. There were many different takes on this joke, leading to Adrichat coming in 2nd place on Tumblr Fandometrics' weekly round-up of the site's most popular ships on April 20th, 2020 despite that fact that few genuinely shipped it. The Fandometrics post acknowledged Adrichat's significant rise from unrepresented in the top 20 to 2nd place by including a ML gif in the post and using ML tags. The nod was received positively by ML fans.
Adrichat occasionally also refers to pairing Adrien/Chat Noir with another person who is an identical doppelgänger - doppelgängers have been encountered a few times in ML canon.
The joke was started by buggachat on tumblr with the following tweet:
