Carapace is an upcoming superhero who will help Ladybug and Cat Noir "during particularly difficult missions" in the second season of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir.[1][2] With the Turtle Miraculous, when inhabited by Wayzz, he can transform into a turtle-themed superhero.
His civilian identity is confirmed to be Nino Lahiffe.


Physical appearance

Carapace is tall, with short dark brown hair, brown skin, and golden brown eyes.

As Carapace

Carapace has a dark green bodysuit with a hoodie. The hoodie has a silver semicircle on the front, red eye designs on the sides with black and golden details, and two small light green ovals below the bottom of the hood's opening. Over his eyes, Carapace wears black goggles with yellow green lenses, and underneath the suit, he has a black collar. On his suit, he has six hexagon-shaped light green circles on his chest, and he has dark gray hexagon-shaped protective pads on his shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees. The Turtle Miraculous bracelet is on his right wrist. Also, Carapace wears dark green boots with an indent between his big toe and other toes, dark gray outsoles, and two indents on two sides of each boot. On his back, he carries a shell-like object that is dark green on one side and light green on the other.


Carapace's abilities are unknown.




  • Carapace means "a protective shell."[3]
  • Both Carapace and his civilian identity were revealed on August 31, 2017, in a press release video from French Miraculous distributor TFOU.[1]
