Hawk Moth (Le Papillon in the French version, which translates to "The Butterfly") is the main antagonist of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir. With the Moth Miraculous, when inhabited by Nooroo, the unknown person transforms into Hawk Moth. He wants Ladybug and Cat Noir's Miraculouses and powers for himself, and he creates and controls the akumas, evil creatures who transform normal people into supervillains.
- Both the butterfly and the moth symbolize change or personal evolution. This is likely in connection with his ability to corrupt and transform others into his henchmen.
