Before Season 1

Adrien was home-schooled for his entire life. He lived in the Agreste mansion with his mother and father. At this time, his only friend was Chloé Bourgeois. His mother went missing within nine months before Adrien was allowed to go to school. This changed his father, making him more closed-off. Adrien started modeling in order to get closer to him.

Season 1


In "Ladybug & Cat Noir (Origins - Part 1)", Adrien ran away from home and tried to go to school against his father's orders. He almost made it inside the school, but he was followed by Nathalie and his bodyguard. He tried to plead with them to let him go to school. Before he could run inside, he saw an old man struggling to get up from the sidewalk, his cane out of reach. Adrien handed the man his cane and was forced to return home. Nathalie was home-schooling him when Gabriel scolded him for leaving the safety of the mansion.

Upset, Adrien ran to his room. When he felt the ground shake, he ran outside, saw Stoneheart throw a van at Agent Roger, and turned on the news in his room to learn more. Then, he noticed a black box on his coffee table. Opening it, a flash of light entered the room and he met Plagg, a talking . After chasing Plagg around his room, he put on the Cat Miraculous and transformed into a superhero. Eager, Adrien didn't listen to all of Plagg's instructions. He left his room, jumping with his baton across Paris.

Getting the hang of walking on his baton, Adrien fell off it when Ladybug fell from the sky and crashed into him. When they were untangled, he ran off to fight Stoneheart and she followed. At the Parc des Princes, Cat Noir stopped Stoneheart from attacking Kim, saved Alya from being hurt, and misused Cataclysm on a soccer goal. Ladybug and Cat Noir took down Stoneheart and turned him back into Ivan. Cat Noir returned to his house before he detransformed. Adrien tried feeding Plagg food his personal chef provided, but Plagg only accepted Camembert, much to Adrien's annoyance. That wasn't the only thing that brought him down: because Ladybug didn't capture the akuma, it multiplied and affected innocent Parisian citizens, turning them into Stonehearts. Even worse, Cat Noir couldn't repair the damage nor capture the akuma. Adrien frowned, thinking.

In "Stoneheart (Origins - Part 2)", the next day, Adrien snuck out of the house again, complained about Plagg's Camembert addiction, and made it to school before Nathalie could catch him. Chloé led him around the school and he signed autographs for the people who asked. When Chloé put gum on Marinette's seat, he tried to remove it, but Marinette was mad and made him stop. Nino, seeing Adrien's predicament, decided to become Adrien's friend.

When Stoneheart busted down Miss Bustier's classroom's door and took Chloé and Mylène captive, Adrien ran from the room and transformed into Cat Noir. He hit Stoneheart and caused him to grow. Stoneheart called in the other Stonehearts and they attacked Cat Noir, letting the original Stoneheart walk away. When one of the Stonehearts threw a car at Alya, Cat Noir he threw his staff at the car, keeping it from killing her. However, this led to him being captured. Ladybug freed him when she gave him his staff. They went to the original Stoneheart who was on the Eiffel Tower.

Ladybug didn't feel like she could succeed in taking down Stoneheart; she failed once and the police didn't trust her. Cat Noir encouraged her to try again. When Hawk Moth told him to give up his Miraculous, Ladybug stepped up and captured all the akuma creating his face. She then promised that Ladybug and Cat Noir would defend Paris and keep it safe. It was in that moment that he decided that he loved the girl under the mask. He followed Ladybug up the Eiffel Tower to free Mylène. He fought off the other Stonehearts while Ladybug figured out what to do with her Lucky Charm. When Ladybug made Stoneheart drop his akumatized object, Cat Noir threw it up to her so that she could free the akuma. He used Cataclysm so that he could catch Ivan.

The next day, Adrien went to school with permission from his father. He apologized to Marinette about the gum incident and explained he was only trying to help her. Happy that he was forgiven and made a new friend, he went home.

In "the Bubbler", it is Adrien's birthday. He wanted to have a birthday party, but his father wouldn't let him. Nino tried to convince Gabriel to give Adrien a birthday party, but he failed and was banished from the Agreste mansion. After lunch, Adrien went outside the mansion to find all of his classmates gathered in the courtyard and an akumatized Nino hovering above everyone on a bubble. Adrien ran inside to transform, but Plagg convinced him to enjoy himself and that party.

Adrien listened to Plagg's advice and joined the party. At first, he didn't notice how miserable everyone else was, but when Ladybug showed up, he ran of to transform. Cat Noir fought with Ladybug against Bubbler, but Bubbler surrounded them with red bubbles, turned them green, and captured the heroes. Cat Noir demanded Bubbler bring the adults back, but that only angered Bubbler; they were sent skyward. Cat Noir used Cataclysm to escape from the bubble, threw his baton at the Eiffel Tower, and let Ladybug swing them back to the ground. They returned to the Agreste mansion, but it was too late; the students were sent skyward. Cat Noir and Ladybug chased Bubbler up the Eiffel Tower. Cat Noir distracted Bubbler with a broken air vent until Ladybug captured his akuma.

Back at the Agreste mansion, Adrien opened the gift Marinette left, believing it to be from his father. He wore the scarf to school the next day, very happy with the results.

In Mr. Pigeon", Adrien was in a fashion design competition as one of the prizes; he would model the hat that won the competition. He saw Marinette's designs and was excited for her work. When Mr. Pigeon attacked Paris with his pigeons, Adrien transformed into Cat Noir and helped Ladybug. He acted like bait to get Mr. Pigeon's attention and was carried away. When Ladybug followed, they were trapped in a cage. Cat Noir freed them with Cataclysm.

They ran inside Le Grand Paris and Cat Noir fed Plagg. He followed Ladybug to the Grand Palais where they found the park keepers trapped inside. Ladybug planned on Cat Noir grabbing the bird call, but Cat Noir's allergies kicked in, leading to Ladybug and Cat Noir brawling against Mr. Pigeon and his pigeon fists. Ladybug's Lucky Charm turned the pigeons against Mr. Pigeon, leaving him defenseless. They smashed the bird call, Ladybug purified the akuma, and the city returned to normal. With less than an hour left to the end of the competition, Adrien returned to the school, showed his father around, and congratulated Marinette when she proved her hat was her own design, beat Chloé, and won the competition.

In "Stormy Weather", Adrien had a photoshoot in the park. He saw Marinette and Alya when Manon interrupted the shoot by shouting at Marinette. Stormy Weather attacked the park in the middle of the shoot. Adrien ran off and transformed into Cat Noir. He confronted Stormy Weather but was blown away. Ladybug helped him to his feet and stopped him from flirting with her. They fought Stormy Weather but she blew them away twice and trapped them in a bus.

When they freed themselves, they ran to the KIDZ+ studio. They broke down the door, but she wasn't there; it was a trap. Stormy Weather turned off the lights and ran to the rooftop. Because Cat Noir had night vision, he led Ladybug to the roof. Cat Noir defended themselves from the falling hail while Ladybug figured out what to do with her Lucky Charm. He summoned Cataclysm and took down a billboard. Stormy Weather blasted a hole through the billboard before it could crash into her. Ladybug wrapped her yo-yo around Stormy Weather's ankle, preventing her from escaping. Ladybug pulled her back to the ground and she lost her umbrella. Cat Noir threw it to Ladybug and she broke it, purifying the akuma and returning the city to normal. Adrien returned to the park and finished the photo shoot with Manon as his partner.

In "Timebreaker", Adrien was at the Trocadéro to watch Alix's and Kim's race. He liked Marinette's banner. When Marinette dropped Alix's watch, he caught it, but Chloé grabbed it, dropped it, broke it, and led to Alix's akumatization. He transformed into Cat Noir and avoided Timebreaker's touch, but ended up disappearing when he protected Ladybug.

In the past, Adrien didn't remember disappearing and was excited when he worked with two Ladybugs. The Ladybugs summoned their Lucky Charms and came up with a plan to stop the Timebreakers while Cat Noir distracted them by using Cataclysm. Future Ladybug wrapped the Timebreakers' ankles together while Past Ladybug created a ramp that flung them in the air. The Ladybugs break the rollerskates, release the akumas, and cleanse the city, merging the two Ladybugs and Timebreakers. When Ladybug left, Cat Noir was determined to make her fall for him.

In "Copycat", Adrien was at fencing practice at the school when he left to go to the locker room, found a new voicemail from an unrecognized number on his phone, and found Plagg had eaten all of his Camembert. Noticing the time, Adrien and Plagg transformed into Cat Noir and hurried over to the statue ceremony in the park. At the ceremony, Cat Noir proceeded to boast about himself, saying he was the better of the duo and that they were in a relationship. This made Théo Barbot very jealous.

After the ceremony, Cat Noir returned to the school and detransformed. Adrien grabbed his bag and went home, but immediately returned to the school because his phone was missing. On the way, he saw a news report about Cat Noir stealing the Mona Lisa. Adrien and Plagg transformed again and went to the Louvre to help, but were caught by police. Cat Noir escaped and told Ladybug he was innocent. The police chased him through Paris until he went in a subway system. He came out on the other side as Adrien. Plagg guessed the thief was akumatized and Adrien agreed with him. They transformed again and went to Théo's studio where Cat Noir was trapped by Copycat. Ladybug arrived and freed Cat Noir with Copycat's Cataclysm. Using a spoon, Cat Noir and Ladybug defeated Copycat and returned the city (and the Mona Lisa) to normal. Adrien returned to the school, but his phone wasn't there. The next day, Adrien found his phone in his bag. Nino invited him to the movies that night, and Alya and Marinette tagged along.

In "The Pharaoh", Adrien was watching the Ladyblog's most recent update, discussing with Plagg the possibility that Ladybug went to his school and girls being better than cheese. When he saw Alya's new livestream, he immediately transformed into Cat Noir and went to the Louvre. He arrived just as the Pharaoh was trying to leave. Before he could land a hit on the Pharaoh, he was thrown into a sarcophagus. The Pharaoh escaped with Alya while Ladybug freed Cat Noir. They were still trapped in the room, so Cat Noir used Cataclysm to break the bars of the exhibit. He left Ladybug to detransform and feed Plagg cheese.

When Plagg was filled up, he transformed again and freed Ladybug from a time-shifting bubble. He then went to distract all the mummies and give Ladybug time to save Alya. It didn't work. Ladybug and Cat Noir trapped the mummies in a bus. Sometime before this, he used Cataclysm again. Cat Noir watched as Ladybug saved Alya for a second time and returned the city to normal. He went home after that to study for a history test the next day.

When Lady Wifi appeared on screen, Adrien ran from the school, transformed into Cat Noir, and staked out Le Grand Paris to protect Chloé. When Lady Wifi appeared in Chloé's room, Cat Noir and Ladybug entered her room and fought Lady Wifi. After Chloé was freed, they led Lady Wifi down to the basement to trap her, but she caught on to what they were planning and set up a trap of her own in Le Grand Paris' restaurant.

Cat Noir was separated from Ladybug. When he managed to get back to her, she was trapped against a kitchen wall. He was then thrown and trapped in a freezer. The impact made the Cat Miraculous fall off Adrien's hand, forcing him to detransform. Luckily, he found his ring and transformed before Ladybug could free him, thus protecting his identity. Seeing she used her Lucky Charm, he listened to Ladybug's plan and hurried to defeat Lady Wifi before Ladybug detransformed. He destroyed the WiFi antenna on the roof, cutting Lady Wifi off from her powers. The two fought hand to hand until Ladybug showed up. They defeated Lady Wifi, captured her akuma, and returned the city to normal. With only a minute left on her Miraculous, Cat Noir followed Ladybug downstairs. She hid in a closet and detransformed.

Adrien and Plagg returned home for the night.

Instead, Ladybug and Cat Noir went to Le Grand Paris to investigate why the Evillustrator was after Chloé. Ladybug left in an angry huff, leaving Cat Noir behind to guard Chloé. Later, Ladybug called him and told him to guard Marinette while she was on her date with the Evillustrator.

He went to Marinette's house, introducing himself to her and telling her not to worry about that evening; all she had to do was take the Evillustrator's stylus. He followed Marinette and the Evillustrator along the shoreline of La Seine. When they passed under the Pont Marie, he boarded the boat, but he was heard by the Evillustrator. Cat Noir blocked the Evillustrator from going after Marinette in order to get his stylus back, but the Evillustrator kicked Cat Noir's staff, the staff in turn knocking the stylus out of Marinette's hand.

After leaving Marinette safely on the streets by La Seine, Cat Noir went to Le Grand Paris. Ladybug met him there. Together, they protected Chloé and took down the Evillustrator.
