[Cat Noir] can use his superpower to destroy anything he touches. Comes in handy for slowing enemies down.

Marinette, "Cat Noir as seen by Marinette"

Cataclysm is a special superpower granted by the Cat Miraculous to its holder.



Cat Noir infuses his ring hand with bad luck energy. Whatever he touches with it is affected negatively: technology malfunctions, and solid objects dissolve, corrode, break, or are easily breakable afterwards depending on the material.

While Cataclysm is a very helpful superpower, Cat Noir must use it wisely, as he can only use it once before reverting back into his civilian form five minutes after using it.


Season 1




  • In the Korean version, the superpower is called "Ancient Destruction."
  • The effect of Cataclysm when it's used on a living creature is unknown.
  • Copycat is able to use this ability as well, with the same loss of power after using it.
  • Cataclysm isn't used in "Darkblade" or "The Mime".
  • Cat Noir's use of Cataclysm on Guitar Villain's Awesome Solo reveals that it is usable against an attack, but it can fail.
    • Cat Noir summons it in "Reflekta", but he is transformed by the villain of the same name before he has time to use it.
  • "Copycat" has the most uses of Cataclysm: the superpower is used 3 times (2 from Cat Noir and 1 from Copycat).
  • Lady Wifi, the Evillustrator, Reflekta and Copycat manage to anticipate the use of Cataclysm, but Lady Wifi doesn't manage to stop Cat Noir from using it.
    • Ladybug counters the use of Cataclysm in "Copycat" (Copycat's Cataclysm), "Princess Fragrance" and "Dark Cupid".
    • Guitar Villain is the only one who manages to defeat Cataclysm with his Awesome Solo.

    • In Darkblade, Chat Noir didn't use Cataclysm at all, so why in the world did his Miraculous start beeping as soon as the akuma was purified?
    • It was a sound mistake. I remember Thomas Astruc saying the beeping wasn't supposed to be in that scene when it first premiered in Fran...
