Miraculous: Unpopular Opinions

Hey I’ve just finished the third season of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir and I just want to voice some personal opinions of mine. You don’t have to agree with them but you can share some of your opinions down below.

1. Luka is a boring character:

He lacks personality and it seems like he was only created to be Marinette’s love interest.

2. Chloe did not deserve a miraculous:

She only wanted her miraculous for fame and used it for all the wrong reasons. When she didn’t get what she wanted as quickly as she liked, she risked putting the entire city in danger. Although Ladybug had a part to play in this by not confronting her sooner, that is still no excuse for Chloe’s behavior in the season finale.

3. Lila is a great antagonist but an awful person:

She brings drama to the show and has some admirable qualities. She lies to seek validation which usually stems from insecurities but I still despise her. Her lies aren’t the issue but the way she treats others is sickening especially Adrien. Adrien was willing to help her and remain her friend. In return, she tries to manipulate him then isolates him from Marinette out of spite not for “his own good”. She possesses toxic traits for a friend or partner.

4. Kagami is not a bad person:

I didn’t always like her at first because of her standoffish demeanor. I now have a better understanding of her because she has an overly strict parent (like Adrien) which is why she doesn’t have many friends. She hasn’t done anything awful for me to dislike her. She just seems like a normal girl who is socially awkward and likes Adrien (similar to Marinette ). She honestly deserves better.

5. Adrien and Ladybug are not obligated to return the feelings of their counterparts:

Adrien only likes Marinette as a friend and that’s okay. I don’t expect him to fall in love with her immediately because there would be a lack of build-up. Adrien should like Marinette for who she is not because she likes him. As for Ladybug, she is also entitled to her feelings. Everyone gets mad whenever she rejects Chat Noir but Chat repeatedly tries to peruse her when she’s stated on numerous occasions “I’m in love with someone else”. He keeps trying and hopes that she’ll say yes but he needs to learn that there are more options.

6. The two protagonists seeing other people is just what they need:

So many fans hate this idea but I think it has potential. Adrien and Marinette needs to realize that there are always options. Having a crush is normal but they shouldn’t let that consume them. Having a first relationship experience might help both of them to become a little more mature because neither of them is ready to be in a serious relationship (at least not with each other).

7. I like Marinette but her obsessiveness and jealousy are one of her biggest flaws:

A character is allowed to have flaws however, those flaws should be handled properly by acknowledging them. How is she supposed to grow if her issues continue to be swept under the rug? I also don’t like how her flaws are more exaggerated than her good qualities for comedic purposes. It makes it seem like she has no life outside of Adrien and I know there’s more to her than just that. They should have Marinette focus less on Adrien in season 4.

8. Adrien does not have to be friends with everyone:

I understand that his character dynamic is a genuinely kind-hearted and forgiving person however, he doesn’t have to befriend everyone he meets especially those who will only cause him more problems. Lila would make an awful friend and a worse girlfriend. He can be nice to her but he should keep a distance from her and her toxic mentality.

9. It’s okay for Ladybug to be the Alpha without Chat always having to be sidelined:

I like both characters as heroes but I dislike how Chat Noir is either overlooked by fans or is always sacrificing himself. They should at least keep the same energy towards both parties to prove that they’re truly a team.

10. Nino and Alya’s relationship is cuter than the love square:

I have no issue with the main relationship dynamic of the show but so many fans only talk about the love square when Alya and Nino have the purest relationship in the show. In one episode when Alya was turned into a kiss zombie, Nino stayed with her knowing he will be infected. If that’s not love I don’t know what is.

11. Natalie/Mayura is a better villain than Hawkmoth:

I despise Gabriel with a burning passion. I still didn’t forgive him in the Chat Blanc episode for deliberately hurting his only child in such a disgusting way. Natalie as a villain has so much potential. I also notice that Hawkmoth gets the job done faster whenever she works with him. Natalie is too good for Gabriel.

12. Adrien is not a Gary Stu but Luka is:

Adrien may seem perfect from his peer’s perspective but he also has a very neglectful father and has recently lost his mother. His sadness in some episodes seems like a cry for help rather than just pure loneliness. His flaws are more obvious whenever he transforms into Chat Noir. Luka is the “perfect” guy. He has little to no personality, the same tone, body language, and facial expressions in each episode. I like that he’s chill but I wish he was more like Nino. Nino is also chill but is proven to be imperfect and more exciting. This kind of personality is what Marinette needs for her to learn how to chill, mature, and have a little more excitement in her personal life. She doesn’t need someone who acts more like a brother than a love interest.

the writing of the show is not the best. every episode is rushed. chloe or marinette piss someone off wether they want it or not -> that someone gets akumatized -> ladybug and cat noir fight the villain of the episode -> ladybug can’t figure out how to win and uses the lucky charm -> they defeat the villain all sherlock style -> pound it -> the episode ends with a “insightful” speech of a character or a close up or even unrelated moments with the episode. And let’s not forget within all of that there’s, marinette hiding her true feelings from adrien and ladybug rejecting cat noir. There isn’t enough time for characters to express their feelings in the show, as in take a breath. midfight one of them will feel tired it’s a normal human reaction! show it! Personally, the only characters that are written well are Hawkmoth and Kagami.

it’s a kids show. kids do not pay attention to it. Avatar the last airbender is a kids show and it’s the best thing it ever happened on Nickelodeon!

and something else about that. i 100% agree with! but they’ve written marinette like that:

marinette’s in love with Adrien. someday they are gonna get together! and that’s marinette’s logic! have they sat down and discussed will Adrien be up to this? Is it something of his character to just accept it blindly? or do we need to make it difficult for him to accept?

If anyone didnt see but thete are litetally a lot of details, in all the episodes, that may give us little spoiler to make theories, like Chinese Zodiac is here in each episode, if we watch Miraculous just luke that yeah we dl not see that, but u just need to open a bit ur eyes and u’ll see the super smart things in there.

I understand where you’re coming from. This show works for younger kids because they don’t have the same analogy teens and adults have when it comes to shows or books. If I tried rewatching a show I used to love as a kid, I’d probably hate it. What bothers me the most is the lack of build up but hopefully season 4 will fix that.

No, not only for kids im not agree

I kinda wish that Marinette would slowly either get over Adrien or just not put him on such a high pedestal. I understand that she likes him but she should also realize that he’s not perfect. I was hoping that in the 4th season Marinette and Adrien would spend more time with each other but as friends. This way, they’d both have a better understanding of one another. Marinette will chill when it comes to Adrien and Adrien might slowly develop feelings for her the more he gets to know her.

It seems like both characters are just a plot device to bring the two protagonists closer. The reason why I like Kagami is because her character has some depth and confidence without being mean-spirited. Luka on the other hand just seems like he was only written to be Marinette’s love interest. There’s not that much depth or personality to his character.
