He sure brings a whole new meaning to 'silent but deadly.'

Cat Noir, "The Mime"

Fred Haprèle is an assistant educator at Collège Françoise Dupont, a mime performer, the leading actor in The Mime's Extraordinary Adventures, and Mylène's father.[1][2] In "The Mime", when Fred is deceived by his understudy, Chris, into missing his performance, he is akumatized by Hawk Moth and becomes The Mime, a mime supervillain.


Physical appearance

Fred is tall and lanky with brown hair and brown eyes.

Civilian attire

He wears a white shirt underneath a dark green dress jacket. He also wears dark blue jeans and black and white sneakers. When he is performing as a mime, he has a black derby hat with a special pocket added in by Marinette to put a photo of Mylène.

As the Mime

The Mime's hair is blond, and his skin is periwinkle. His irises are pale purple, and he has black lining around the eyes, with a drop shaped line below each. He still has the derby hat on his head. He wears a dark gray and white striped shirt underneath a bluish-gray dress jacket with two large black buttons and a dark blue collar. In addition, he wears high white pants with black lining on the pockets, and he wears high black and white sneakers.

Fred thanking Mylène for her introduction.

Fred is kind and hardworking. When he is working as an assistant at school, he is serious and firm about keeping people without permission and who might hurt others out, including Rogercop in the episode of the same name and Nadja Chamack and her crew in "Darkblade", but when off duty, he is very genial to other people, and he is always showing love for his daughter. However, he tends to procrastinate, getting his hat fixed right before he needs to leave instead of having it done earlier, and he is often late.

As the Mime, he is cold and silent, with the only intention of getting revenge on his crew by ruining their show because he lost the opportunity to perform with them.


As a civilian

Fred is a talented mime actor, able to act with imaginary objects and without saying a word.

As the Mime

  • The Mime hitting a police with his pantomimed golf club.
  • The Mime pantomiming driving a car.
  • The Mime mimicking a chainsaw to cut through a car roof.
  • The Mime battling Ladybug with a sword pantomime.
  • Mime pantomiming holding up the Eiffel Tower so it won't crush him.

The Mime is able to mime anything, and instead of it being imaginary, it works like a real, solid, but invisible object. He can create anything, from swords, to bazookas, to working vehicles. He can also mimic strength, being able to hold up the Eiffel Tower. However, the Mime can only mime one thing at a time, so if he starts a new mime, whatever he previously created will cease to exist.

Mylène Haprèle

Mylène is his daughter and he loves her very much. He had Marinette place a pocket in his hat so he can keep a picture of her there for good luck, and when he loses his performance, he believes he has disappointed her.



Comics and books



  • Mime

    Concept art for the Mime in the Ladybug PV.

    The Mime is one of the first known villains in the world of Ladybug, being one of the only three villains featured in the Ladybug PV, the other villains being Mr. Pigeon and Hawk Moth.
    • The Mime has the same abilities as he did in the Ladybug PV, the only difference being that there are no shadows visible when he pantomimes.
  • The Mime was such a great character, in producers' eyes, that when the unused concept of the Quantic Kids was being developed, they decided to replace team member Sparrow with Kid Mime, a superhero with powers like the Mime.[3].
  • For the Mime's objects, animators would create his objects, and then they would make them invisible.[4]
  • The Mime's design is a reference to French mime Marcel Marceau.[5]
