  • I've been wondering about how Nooroo recharges.
    If Akumatization is Hawkmoth's ultimate power, it means he will depower after using it, therefore Nooroo will need to eat in order for him to repower and use it again.

    Which would suggest that Hawkmoth has to feed Nooroo something, if he's like all the other Kwami and needs to eat in order to recharge.

    I am assuming just because Hawkmoth enslaved Nooroo, he's smart enough not to be cruel to him.
    After all, if your power depends on the health and wellbeing of a single individual, you're going to make really sure they stay healthy, just so you don't lose the superpowers they are giving you.

    • That's not a super-power! Ladybug's super power is massive regeneration, and when she creates something she will not be untransformed. Only after the massive regeneration. Cat Noir's super-power is massive destruction, but because he didn't uses it, I think, his super-power is automatically set to cataclysm. HawkMoth's super-power is unknown, because he wasn't told what to do with the stick. The only known power of the stick is:

      Keeping Akuma's for one transformation villain in it, to not let them be untransformed, once an akuma has multiplied, it will then go in the stick, and when it comes back to the unhappy owner, he will be the king of the multiplied Akuma's armie. That's his super-power, and idk why he didn't recharged after it.

    • Ladybug's ultimate power is Lucky Charm and Cat Noir's ultimate power is Cataclysm.
      It has been shown many times (once an episode!) that after either of them uses this power, they have 5 minutes remaining until they revert to normal and then their Kwami has to be fed in order for them to transform again.
      Tikki favors cookies and Plagg will only eat the most stenchy cheese imaginable.

      I am assuming this rule applies to all Kwami and therefore, Nooroo has to eat something in order to recharge/repower Hawkmoth.

    • Butterflies are symbols of transformation. The Moth miraculous transforms butterflies. The symbol of transformation means he can stay unlimited time transformed. Like Master Fu's miraculous gives him an old age, the transformation miraculous can stay transformed all days.

      Listen to Buckmana, AnatolyWein. If you want to talk about Miraculous powers and transformation time lengths, make your own forum discussion, but this is about Nooroo's diet.

      As for what Nooroo eats, I really don't know. It all seems so random, really. Cats shouldn't eat Camembert, yet Plagg loves Camembert. And while bugs would eat plants, Tikki loves cookies—though the chocolate chip cookies do look similar to ladybugs and their spots. Perhaps there is a history behind it, or kwamis' appetites change over time? Who knows.

      If I had to guess something for Nooroo, maybe that fruit dish thing that Adrien originally ordered for Plagg in the first Origins episode was it, or something else the cooks in the Agreste house make? ...Yeah, I'm drawing to a blank, but if Hawk Moth if Gabriel, He'd either have to sneak Nooroo's food to him, or pretend to like something made by his chef(s), order it consistently, and not eat it himself, giving it to Nooroo instead.

    • A natural ladybug is a insectivore with a preferred diet of aphid.

      As for cats, the research was quite specific about their dietary limitations.
      The majority of cats are lactose intolerant in adulthood and even as kittens aren't capable of consuming milk sourced from a cow.
      But it did say that because cheese is different in it's composition from milk, a cat can consume that much more safely then milk.
      And it is common for some cats to love a piece of cheese if offered it as a treat.

      As for moths, they favor nectar in adulthood, so hypothetically, if Nooroo follows the diet of the creature he represents, he'd most likely be drinking a lot of fruit juice, most likely the nectar based varieties.
      But if he had the ability to chew and it seems all Kwami do, he'd be able to eat fruit directly.

      I am speculating that Kwami are some kind of hybrid organism, they have the external traits, maybe even some of the mental/behavioral characteristics of the creature they represent, but have a mammal based biology.
      Most likely, they'd be similar to a mouse, but with a neural structure closer to that of a higher primate.
      Marinette could very well be correct when she described Tikki as a "bug mouse" upon their first meeting.

      So it is quite possible that Kwami, over time, have developed their own specific/individual tastes for certain types of food and while they could consume anything, they would have a preference for something that pleases them.
      Because having eternal life and being well-traveled (as implied with all of Tikki's former partners), they'd eventually get to sample every kind of cuisine there was to offer.
      Which would give them a great deal of experience to learn what they liked best and adjust their dietary choices accordingly.

      And now I am imagining Tikki as the world's most expert food reviewer.

    • @Transyflower - He doesn't eat anything. OMG, we reached times when people start evaluate back, logic, guys, logic!

      => In AntiBug HawkMoth had two villains at once.

      & => He wasn't untransformed

      So => Nooroo doesn't eat anything to recharge, cause Hawk Moth is never untransformed.

      Yes, - Logic is a think

      Mela Lee, Tikki's English voice actor, did say that Tikki likes to read cookbooks, though she can't cook—though that may not actually be canon, to be fair. It makes perfect sense to live in a place where lots of types of foods are made when you can't make any for yourself. We may just always see cookies because it means only one model for the animators to make every time Tikki needs fed.

      Plagg, on the other hand, appears to be a picky eater. He doesn't have the excuse of animators sticking to one model of food; he just mainly likes Camembert, with swiss cheese and cheddar cheese being his secondary options. You wonder if Plagg has always been this particular with his food options throughout all of the holders he's been with, or he just changes to one type of food in different periods of time, and Adrien lucked out that Plagg fell in love with Camembert.

      With Nooroo, that's a good point with butterflies loving nectar, and while anything is possible, I'm strongly leaning towards Nooroo liking fruit, whether a particular fruit or an assorted amount. Hawk Moth could be cruel and make him eat leaves or something, but as stated before, Hawk Moth surely knows the importance and helping recharging his kwami to its best extent. My random, non-educated guess would be that Nooroo likes lollipops, but that's just based on the swirl marking on his forehead.

      I agree with the possibility of kwamis' tastes changing and modifying over time from being in different places around the world and history. It makes you wonder if the show or comics would look into that, like if Plagg has to adapt to a different type of cheese while he and Adrien are in the US, and if Tikki would eat a Chinese pastry while she and Marinette are in Shanghai.

    • I have actually wondered how the Kwami hold objects, given that they don't appear to have fingers or thumbs.
      Tikki managed to grip the Kwami book somehow.
      As for Plagg, while we don't see what happens, he fiddles with the internal locks of the hidden safe until he gets it to open.
      Doing that would imply a lot of fine motor skill and something to manipulate the lock mechanisms with.

      I suspect though, that the true problem with wanting to cook for yourself if you are a Kwami is not the inability to do so, but grappling with the sheer scale of the world around you.
      From their perspective, they are living in a world of giants, nothing is the appropriate size for them to use.

      Let's say Tikki wanted to make a batch of cookies, the bowl is several times larger then she is, the wooden stirring spoon 3 times her height.
      And she still wouldn't be able to lift the tray once she finished to put it in the oven to bake.
      So it's easier to get a prepared food item from somewhere then try and make it yourself.

      It would be interesting to see if they put that kind of scene in the upcoming specials.
      Like Marinette getting some snacks from a roadside stand or cafe in another country/city and Tikki trying out the food because she's never had it before.
      I assume it would have to be the specials, since in the main series, Marinette has never left Paris at all.

    • Honestly, until told otherwise, I'm going to assume that one of the kwami, be it Pollen, Wayzz, Nooroo, Duusu, Trixx, or one of the ones we haven't seen the Miraculous for yet, eats yoghurt.

      So that's my answer. And also my answer for Pollen and Duusu, also Wayzz and Trixx. And all the ones in the second layer of the box since I think more than just those seven Miraculous exist? Eventually I'll get it right. Probably.

      Why yoghurt? I don't know. Well, it's a pretty old food, just like cheese.

    • My theory about this is that Plagg doesn't like stinky cheese because he's a cat, he likes it because he's a force of destruction, and it's essentially rotting. Tikki likes chocolate chip cookies. Her name means happiness, and chocolate releases endorphins. Y'all are getting too caught up in their animal aspects; they're actually miniature gods.

      As for Nooroo, I like the idea of him eating fresh fruit. His power is the ability to give other people powers, so I can also see his favorite food being something you can share with friends.

      I see Nooroo eating spicy or herby foods to recharge. Akumatisation takes what is there in a person and complements them by adding something new or enhancing what's there, like how spices and herbs do in food.

      I actually see the spicy food going to Trixx, since she's a fox spirit, and they're associated with fire. Like I can imagine her eating a bunch of very hot peppers like it's no big deal.

      But I like the idea you presented quite a lot. Salt is one ingredient that brings out the other four basic taste sensations (that is, saltiness is one on its own, the others being sweetness, bitterness, sourness, and umami, sometimes called "savory"), so perhaps Nooroo enjoys something salty? That would be the height of what you're suggesting, since salt can also bring out other sensations like spiciness and metallicness. I genuinely doubt he likes just straight salt, but perhaps something that is salty, like pretzels or popcorn, or his is less consistent on a specific food, as long as it has salt and the salt brings out the flavours of it.

      That's a good idea, things like salted nuts and pretzels, I could see him eating those.

    • I agree with people who are speculating that Nooroo might prefer nectar or even fruits. However, he might inclined to consume other foods. I am thinking of him eating anything sweet similar to nectar. Maybe ice cream, candies, or pastry. I'm sure he has a sweet tooth.

    • Well, Hawk Moth does care about getting the Miraculouses and in order to do that he would need Nooroo to be strong so he does probably does feed Nooroo, the question is what does he eat.
