Adrien Agreste is the secondary protagonist of Miraculous Ladybug. His superhero identity is Chat Noir.
Adrien Agreste is a student at Collège Françoise Dupont in Paris. He also works as a model for Gabriel, his father's fashion brand. He wields the Cat Miraculous (also called Black Cat Miraculous) and--with the aid of Plagg, the kwami of destruction--he transforms into the cat-themed superhero, Chat Noir.
As Chat Noir, Adrien wields the power of destruction. He activates this power by saying the word Cataclysm which then allows Chat Noir to destroy whatever he touches with his hand. After using this power he has five minutes left before the Miraculous runs out of energy and as a result he de-transforms. As Chat Noir, Adrien also wields a staff which can be used as a weapon and a communicator.
Tropes & Fanon
- Character is a Cat - used for Adrien or Plagg.
- Catboy AU
- Miraculous Side Effects - a relatively popular concept is Adrien/Chat Noir suffering side effects from having the cat miraculous; in general, fans are partial to purring and cat-like affectionate behavior. This trope is also used, although less usual, for Marinette/Ladybug, whose side effects tend to involve mainly a weakness to cold.
- Adrien is a Sentimonster - many fans of the show have theorized about the possibility since the powers of the Peacock Miraculous were further explored in Season 3.
