  • In some episodes, I've seen Marinette has a backpack.
    Which got me wondering, why does she need a purse if she's got pockets and a larger bag to carry things around in?

    As far as I can tell, the only thing in the purse is Tikki.
    Which would imply it's just a convenient way of carrying Tikki around while keeping her out of sight.

    This only works if you don't open it to look out and someone notices you.


    Therefore, I am wondering if this is the only reason Marinette has it, it's basically a place for Tikki to live in when they are away from home.

    • Interesting idea! Didn't she already carry the purse in Origins, though?

    • I'm still trying to work out where Origins comes in the production order, if they made it first or later.
      If it was later, they might have already made several episodes with Marinette, Tikki and the purse, hence it was already a part of her model.

      But usually with CGI characters, they have a standard model which is always consistent and Marinette's was most likely preformatted with a purse, regardless of the fact she wasn't using it for Tikki at the time.

      Of course, it could simply be the scripting rule called Chekov's X.
      To explain, this means that if you intend to use something later on for a significant reason, you have to put it on stage/onscreen as a prop so the audience sees it.
      They might not acknowledge it at first, but when the item is used, they'll remember seeing it earlier.
      The reason behind this rule is because it breaks immersion for a previously unseen object to just appear out of nowhere.

    • Did anyone notice that in one scene in Chevalier Noir/Darkblade, when Marinette unlocked her box-protected diary from Sabrina's hand, she was later shown actually putting it in the purse? The box must have been twice her purse's size, but it was a only for a brief second and the purse was off-screen. I'm not really sure if that was an animation error or what.

    • No she had the purse before she met Tikki. According to Befana, she made it several years earlier.

    • Maybe the purse had another purpose before but right now it's only purpose seems to be to carry Tikki around and, as seen in Dark Owl and Antibug, to carry food for Tikki to eat in case of emergency, as well as other small things.

    • Well, she uses it to carry money around and there's a few times when she's got Tikki in her jacket like Adrien does with Plagg, so I'd say no, cuz otherwise she could just carry Tikki in her jacket. I think it's just a purse she uses to carry small things around, like an emergency sewing kit (which is in character for her but we've never seen inside it) and money that Tikki is usually inside of.

      She's right. Also, she's carried her phone in her purse, as shown in the episode Horrificator.

      Haha no she fits in there with plenty of space left over, Tikki is only about 10 cm tall (this is completely off topic but Plagg is bigger OMG SIZE DIFFERENCE okay that was a brief fangirl moment moving on), so she would go in easily, and we've seen her in there. But I was confused on what you meant by immaterialize? I was aware of her being able to phase through objects, but that was only for a brief amount of time?

    • In one of the Miraculous Secrets videos (can't remember which one at the moment) she says that she made it. Also, (​SPOILER ALERT) ​in the newest episode of season 2 "Dark Owl", when it shows how she and Adrien got out of the impossible situation, we see her take out some food for Tikki, as well as the fake miraculouses she'd made earlier before Mr. Damocles was akumatized. I'll say its carrying Tikki is a main purpose now that she's a superhero, but she also uses it for other, more simple purposes, like keeping food handy for the kwami and for little things she needs near her every now and then, which says she didn't have anything she needed in Princess Fragrance, since the bag was empty other than her.

      Pfft. Please, isn't it obvious? Marinette is a Time Lord, who apparently lost her Tardis, since she is terrible at time management.
