Before Season 1
In "Ladybug & Cat Noir (Origins - Part 1)", on Marinette's first day of school in her last year of middle school, she woke up late. Worried about Chloé being in her class again for the fourth year in a row, Marinette did not want to go to school. Her mother reassured her that no one can be that unlucky and she would be fine. Marinette then lost what luck she had, spilling her breakfast and making a mess in the kitchen. When Marinette then left for school, she brought with her a box of macarons. As she waited at the crosswalk outside her home, she saw a man crossing the street and pulled him to safety, losing some of her macarons in the process and making her late to school.
Unsurprisingly, she was in the same class as Chloé once more, immediately being bullied by her to move seats. Alya saw this and helped Marinette, pulling her to sit next to her in class. Before Marinette could make it to her new seat, she tripped, spilling all but one macaron and splits it with Alya, the two becoming friends.
After the first class, Marinette and Alya were in the library when they saw the rock monster Stoneheart shouting for Kim. Alya rushed off, leaving Marinette behind. Marinette returned to her home, finding a small box in front of her computer. When she opened it, a flash of light entered the room and she met Tikki, a talking kwami. Tikki convinced Marinette to put on the Ladybug Miraculous and to transform into a superhero. Afraid, Marinette didn't want to be a hero, but with no way to remove the costume, she left her room, swinging her yo-yo and flew across Paris.
Still learning how to control the yo-yo, Marinette landed on Cat Noir while falling out of the sky. She followed him to fight Stoneheart, still afraid and nervous. In the Parc des Princes, Marinette hesitated before joining the fight, but accepted her role as Ladybug and helped Cat Noir take down Stoneheart with her Lucky Charm wet suit and turned him back into Ivan. She returned to her room before she detransformed however, she forgot to capture the akuma. This failure on her end resulted in the akuma multiplying and infecting innocent Parisian citizens. Her confidence plummeted and she rejected the Ladybug Miraculous out of guilt. She took them off, hiding them in her vanity until she could give them away.
In "Stoneheart (Origins - Part 2)", the next day, Marinette watched the news report about the Stonehearts, with her confidence gone. She took the Ladybug Miraculous to school to give to Alya, believing that she would make a better hero. At the same time, she kept Ivan from being akumatized at first by helping him build his confidence toward Mylène Haprèle. When she went to class, she saw Adrien poking at the gum on her seat and accused him of putting it there. She decided not to trust him, believing him to be the same as Chloé.
When Stoneheart busted down Miss Bustier's classroom's door and took Mylène and Chloé captive, Marinette tried giving Alya her bag with the Ladybug Miraculous so that she could run and hide, but Alya left it behind. Marinette chased after Alya and saw her nearly die when a car was thrown at her. With Cat Noir captured and Alya trapped, Marinette decided that she had to be Ladybug. She transformed, freed Alya, grabbed Cat Noir's staff, and chased after him. Freeing Cat Noir, they went after the original Stoneheart who was on the Eiffel Tower.
Ladybug caught Chloé when she was thrown off the Tower. She tried to stop the police from firing on Stoneheart, but Agent Roger reminded her that she failed, Ladybug agreed with him that it was her fault, but Cat Noir encouraged her to try again. When Hawk Moth told her to give up her Miraculous, she reminded him that he was the villain and that they would take him down and swung her yo-yo at his akuma-face and captured all of them. Then promised Paris that Ladybug and Cat Noir would keep them safe and ran up the side of the Eiffel Tower, deciding the only way to free Mylène was to bring her and Ivan closer together. She summoned her Lucky Charm and received a parachute. Using her yo-yo Ladybug made Mylène kiss Ivan, causing him to drop his akumatized object. She broke the object and changed Ivan back to normal. To save Mylène, she dove off the Tower, grabbed her, captured the akuma and set her on the ground with help from the parachute. Using Miraculous Ladybug, she freed the other Stonehearts and returned the city to normal.
The next day, she and Alya sat behind Nino and Adrien, until Chloé demanded her to move. After battling Stoneheart Marinette gained the confidence to stand up to her until she moved. By the end of the day she ignored Adrien but accepted his apology for the gum incident after class. It was then that she fell in love with his kindness. Marinette finds herself stammering to say goodbye and Tikki playfully teases her about her crush. After that using the umbrella he gave her, she went home.
In "The Bubbler", Marinette woke up excited for Adrien's birthday. She brought a present to school for him, but she couldn't give it to him. Instead, she and Alya dropped it off at Adrien's house. Marinette forgot to sign the gift. Afterwards at lunch, Marinette's parents were captured in bubbles and sent skyward. She transformed into Ladybug and ran off to find Bubbler at the Agreste mansion. She used a Lucky Charm to break up the slow dance, but because she misused her Lucky Charm, she detransformed and had to find cookies for Tikki.
She snuck into the party and grabbed cookies, fully intent on transforming back, but Alya found her first, leading her to the present she left for Adrien. Marinette signed it and rushed to transform as soon as she was away from Alya then engaged Bubbler, giving the students time to scatter. Ladybug and Cat Noir fought against him, but they end up trapped in his bubble despite Ladybug defending the adults, the angry Bubbler sent them into the sky. After freed Cat Noir's Cataclysm she brought them down to safety. They returned to the Agreste mansion, but it was too late; the students were sent skyward.
Ladybug and Cat Noir chased Bubbler up to the Eiffel Tower. After summoning her Lucky Charm and receiving a wrench, she loosened an air vent, and grabbed Bubbler's bubble wand, and broke it. She captured the akuma and restored the city back to normal. The next day, Marinette saw Adrien wearing the scarf she made him. She didn't correct him when he believed it to be from his father.
In "Mr. Pigeon", Marinette entered a fashion design competition to create a derby hat. Adrien saw her designs and was excited with her work. She went to the Trocadéro for inspiration, which she gained from the pigeons there. She returned home to make the hat, but forgot the feather, forcing her to return to the Trocadéro. When she tried to go back home, the street was blocked by hundreds of pigeons. She transformed after she saw Mr. Pigeon and found Cat Noir. He acted as the bait to get Mr. Pigeon's attention and was carried away. When Ladybug followed, they were trapped in a cage until Cat Noir freed them with Cataclysm.
They ran inside the Le Grand Paris hotel. Ladybug noticed pigeons flocking in the same direction to the Grand Palais where she and Cat Noir found the abducted park keepers trapped inside. Ladybug planned on Cat Noir grabbing the bird call, but his allergies kicked in, leading to them to a brawl against Mr. Pigeon and his pigeon fists. Ladybug summoned her Lucky Charm using a coin she turned the pigeons against Mr. Pigeon. They smashed the bird call, Ladybug captured the akuma, and the city returned to normal. With less than an hour left till the end of the competition, Marinette completed her derby hat and proved it to be her own design, beating Chloé and winning the competition.

She tried to get Adrien's attention and somewhat succeeded but watched the photoshoot from the sidelines. Marinette bought Manon a balloon when she shouted at her and interrupted the shoot. When Manon led her away to the carousel, Alya stepped in and made Marinette join Adrien's photoshoot. Before she could join, Stormy Weather attacked and trapped Alya and Manon in ice. Marinette transformed into Ladybug regretting she shouldn't have left and tried to free them, but was unsuccessful. Ladybug ran off to find the akumatizied, helped Cat Noir to his feet (after he was blown away and landed on his face) they fought against Stormy Weather but the duo was blown away twice and had a bus thrown at them.
When Ladybug and Cat Noir 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. Due to the darkness Ladybug was led by Cat Noir to the rooftops. Once there, Ladybug summoned her Lucky Charm receiving a bath towel while Cat Noir defended them from the falling hail. She had him take down a billboard with his Cataclysm. As apart of the chain reaction Ladybug wrapped her yo-yo around Stormy Weather's ankle, preventing her from escaping. Then pulled her back to the ground and causing her to lose her umbrella. With a toss from Cat Noir she broke it, purified the akuma and returned the city to normal. Marinette returned to the park, intent on joining the photoshoot, but the photographer liked Manon better.
In "Timebreaker", Marinette helped her parents prepare for their 20th wedding anniversary. She was left in charge of the bakery but went to the Trocadéro to watch Alix's and Kim's race. Alya gave her Alix's watch to hold on to, but since she was holding the banner, she wasn't paying enough attention and dropped it. Until Adrien caught the watch, but Chloé took it from him and dropped it, leading to it rolling onto the track, breaking, and Alix's akumatization. Marinette tried calming Alix down but she was stopped when her father called, wondering where she was.

In "Copycat", Marinette brainstormed ideas with Tikki on how to ask out Adrien, but she couldn't speak with him without stuttering. Tikki suggested calling him; she called Alya over to her house to help her. Alya gave her a script to read and then called Adrien's phone. She improvised the message on Adrien's voicemail and then threw the phone on her chaise, not realizing she didn't hang up. She tried deleting the message but failed. Realizing he was still in fencing practice, Marinette went over to the school and stole his phone. Tikki discouraged this since she felt that Marinette should've gone to the statue ceremony first. They missed the whole ceremony and went to Marinette's room, trying to break into Adrien's phone.
Alya called Marinette, asking for an update on the message and letting her know that Cat Noir stole the Mona Lisa from the Louvre. Marinette transformed into Ladybug and hurried to the Louvre, but was stopped by police. From Cat Noir she discovers that the other Cat Noir was an impostor and tracked him to Théo's studio. She saw through Copycat's ruse and freed Cat Noir with Copycat's Cataclysm. Using a spoon, she and Cat Noir defeated Copycat and returned the city (and the Mona Lisa) to normal.

The next day, she returned the phone, Nino invited Adrien to go see a movie later that night and Alya invited herself and Marinette along.
In "The Pharaoh", the previous week, Ladybug was hanging from a helicopter and dropped a Histoire textbook which was Marinette's own textbook. In order to get it back, she and Tikki convinced Alya to go to the Louvre and look at the King Tut exhibit under the guise that there was something about Ladybug there. Marinette tried convincing Alya that she wasn't Ladybug, but Alya wouldn't believe her until she brought her textbook with her to class. When they got to the King Tut exhibit, Jalil Kubdel bumped into Alya and Marinette who was in a hurry to present his findings to his father. Tikki pointed Marinette to an ancient papyrus to distract Alya. In fact, the papyrus was a scroll depicting a ritual to bring the dead back to life.
Marinette was having difficulty distracting Alya when the Pharaoh suddenly appeared.

After, Ladybug caught the akuma and returned the Louvre to normal. She went back inside the museum, took her textbook away from Alya, and lied about where she was, saying she was turned into a mummy.
Back in her room, Marinette asked Tikki about the Ancient Egyptian Ladybug. Where Tikki explained that kwamis and superheroes have always existed and that she has watched over every Ladybug.

Seeing Chloe dress up as her alter ego angers Marinette to the point where she agrees to the offer. In the dressing room as Tikki was amazed at how much the costume looks like the real deal, Marinette apologized to her for giving into the temptation but hid her mask.
After the shoot was cancelled Clara was akumatized into Frightningale then Marinette and Tikki transformed into Ladybug. Both heroes found it difficult to fight her until Ladybug and Cat Noir became affected too forcing them to sing and dance.

In "Zombizou", Marinette ran into the school's locker room and met up with her friends who were all preparing their gifts for Miss Bustier's birthday. Marinette showed that she made a little purse for her written with the first lesson she learned from her. But when they all found out Chloe hadn't prepared a gift she called her heartless and went to her classes with her friends. Once attending Miss Bustier's class, Marinette smiled that her gift was going to be the first one her teacher but it turned into shock and anger when she saw that her gift was ruined.
And knew immediately that it was Chloe who did it however, when she saw her teacher unfazed by this. Marinette became angry that she was getting punished and Chloe wasn't. But her anger didn't go unnoticed by Hawk Moth, who sent an akuma to her. From Miss Bustier she learned wasn't punished and yet praised by her to set a good example. Noticing the akuma, Marinette was shielded by her refusing to let it akumatize her. However, when her teacher tried to resist Hawk Moth's influence Marinette encouraged her to stay positive, seeing her on the verge of being akumatized. Escaping to Locker Room, Marinette refused to let Hawk Moth get away with this and transformed into Ladybug.
After meeting the villain, Ladybug distracted her long enough for everyone to escape and soon was attacked by her minions. Tying them up she searched the school for survivors, locating the missing students in the Locker Room. Knowing their location wasn't safe they all moved to roof; joined by Cat Noir they heard from the news that Zombizou was after Chloe. She stopped the remaining students from giving into the villain's demands saying she needs her for their plan. So the heroes decided to take Chloe to the tower but along the way they lost most of their friends.

Sadly, leaving her the heroine wanted Nino to come along but when he refused she became upset that all of her friends were sacrificed to get this far. Making it to the top, the heroes were cornered by Zombizou's minions after securing Chloe she went to check on Cat Noir finding him she was instructed by him to leave as she was the only one who could fix this. Back inside the office she found Chloe who wished her luck as the villainess and her minions closed in, summoning her Lucky Charm Ladybug received makeup remover. Soon had to deal with a zombified Cat Noir and heard Chloe apologized for the trouble she caused. As the hero closed in the heroine was saved by Chloe, using the makeup remover Ladybug was able defeat Zombizou and cleansed the city.

In "Syren", once all the animals were contained Tikki told Marinette if she wanted to catch the movie she should've headed in Alya's direction. After the Fox Miraculous had been returned, she voiced concerns to Master Wang about leaving her partner in the dark and became intrigued that he was working on a recipe about modifying a kwamis' powers. After the first attempt was a failure, Marinette realized she was late to the cinema. However, the movie was cut short due to Syren's flooding and captured Kim after escaping to the roof and separating themselves from the others they transformed into Ladybug.
And yet, Ladybug found it extremely difficult to fight Syren underwater. Once she summoned her Lucky Charm and received a potion bowl she understood to seek out Master Wang Fu was still skeptical on saying anything about him to Cat Noir saying it wasn't easy for her either. Detransforming they find him still trying to figure out the right ingredient and Marinette assured Master Wang they would find and suggested using real tear of joy. To do so, she told him many jokes causing him to tear up in laughter. Upon completing the potion Tikki transformed into "Aqua Tikki" and they transformed again now on a level playing field. Ladybug and Cat Noir were able to beat Syren, saved Kim and Paris from being a swimming pool.
Shortly after Syren's defeat, Marinette was given the vials that contained all the remaining power ups. But had concerns on keeping them hiding when informed that they could be contained in anything. Having an idea she baked them into macaroons which Tikki loved calling them "Magicroons". Seeing her greatly admired the blue one, Marinette said hinting it's pretty icy.
In "Reverser", she finds Marc hiding under the stairs and asked him to join their Art Club. But when he leaves out of nervousness Marinette saw that Marc dropped his book. After Marinette and Tikki read the Diary of Ladybug book they were both amazed by the boy's story and knew he and Nathaniel would work well together. Upon returning the book she gives Marc the idea of writing a comic book with Nathaniel by showing Marc's book to him. But not wanting to reveal his identity Marinette erases the name and gives it to Nathaniel saying that someone special wrote while they were watching the two were discovered by Adrien. Marinette nervously says that they were working on a surprise for him instead. However during Operation Comic Book as they watched from her balcony it the plan took a turn for the worst when Marc was akumatized into Reverser.
After evading Reverser's arrows they transform into Ladybug but in the middle of their confrontation the heroine got struck by an arrow causing her to become very clumsy. Even with Cat Noir arriving the hero becomes a scaredy cat because of Reverser causing them to fall into the river. Pulling themselves to shore they knew the villain was after Nathaniel and Ladybug had an idea where to look but Cat Noir was too scared to move encouraging her partner to come along they realized they weren't going anywhere.

In "Sandboy", Marinette noticed that Tikki was being really quiet and asked what's wrong. Tikki explained that today was Nooroo's birthday and he was all alone. But Marinette assured her that they would free him one day making it a promise when the kwami spoke of a faster way. She told Marinette that kwamis are able to speak with other kwamis on their birthday or cycle however if the chance was missed they would have to wait a really long time for the next one. Also Tikki mentioned that the opportunity was tonight leaving Marinette surprised that she wasn't told sooner.
Because they knew that kwamis weren't allowed to leave their wielder's side in case of danger. And yet, Tikki explained Plagg's plan that she and Plagg would go join with the other kwamis while Wayzz kept outlook. Agreeing Tikki was overjoyed that she had permission to leave Tikki hugged Marinette promising not to disappoint her leaving through her window with a marker while she slept.
And Marinette was informed that the plan didn't work, afterwards they transformed to find Sandboy.
