  • 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.
