"In the daytime, I'm Marinette, just a normal girl with a normal life. But there's something about me that no one knows yet, 'cause I have a secret."
- Marinette, Miraculous theme song

Marinette Dupain-Cheng is an average girl. Her French and Chinese parents own a bakery. She dreams of becoming a fashion designer. She is average, that is, until she passes a test and is given a pair of earrings known as the Ladybug Miraculous.

When worn, the earrings transform Marinette into her superhero alias, Ladybug. She is "a [glamourous] superhero with a real European flair," something of a feminine reworking of Spider-Man. She has a creation superpower known as Lucky Charm. She is assisted by a small creature named Tikki who looks like a ladybug. She works alongside Cat Noir, who, unknown to Marinette, is her crush from school. Together, they protect Paris from Hawk Moth, who has the ability to turn people into supervillains.
