Miraculous Ladybug Season 3 Episode 26 Miracle Queen
Because of Marinette’s mistake, Hawk Moth akumatizes Chloe into Miracle Queen. With help from her wasps, she takes control of the whole of Paris and forces the Miraculous wearers to come and serve her, thus revealing their true identities to
Internationally, this episode first premiered in Ukraine on PlusPlus.
During the Japan Expo 2018 panel on July 9, 2018, Sébastien Thibaudeau revealed that episode 78 moved the team to tears. He hoped it would have the same effect on the audience.
This is the last episode where Ben Diskin voices Max.
With the exception of the New York special, this is the last episode (chronologically) in which we hear the Lucky Charm and Akuma capture theme used since “Stormy Weather”. Featuring a new theme that was first used in “Miraculous Shanghai” and carried over to Season 4.
Cat Noir’s staff is revealed to be able to be used as a periscope.
This episode is one of the few times the miracle holder’s identity is revealed to someone other than Ladybug or Cat Noir, namely Hawk Moth, Mayura, and Queen Bee.
In this episode, they get to know the identities of 5 superheroes: Alya (Rena Rouge), Kim (King Monkey), Max (Pegasus), Luka (Viperion) and Fu (Jade Turtle).
However, it is very likely that they used a process of elimination to conclude that Nino is Carapace.
This is later confirmed in “Optigami”.
Hawk Moth learns Ryuk’s identity in “Ikari Gozen”, leaving Ladybug, Cat Noir, and Bunnyx as the only superheroes whose identities are unknown to the supervillains.
As for “Optigami” and “Sentibubbler”, since Vesperia, Polymouse, Pigella, and Purple Tigress aren’t on Hawk Moth’s list, it’s likely that he doesn’t know their identities.
As of this episode, Cat Noir was unaware of Nina’s identity as Carapace and that of Alya Rena Rouge until “Rocketear”.
Wang Fu abdicates his duty as guardian, losing his memory, and Marinette becomes the new Guardian of the Miraculous.
This act also transforms the Miracle Box into a different shape, presumably to disguise it from the former Guardians and have them eventually reclaim it, similar to the reason why Miraculous’ cloaked modes look different for each user.
He leaves her a note and the phonograph he used to store the Miracle Box in a locker at the train station.
In “Desperade”, when Adrien suggested to Ladybug that Luka should use the Snake Miraculous, she was unaware that Cat Noir knew Viperion’s identity. When you defeat a controlled Viperion, it’s likely that Ladybug will let him know that Viperion is Luka thanks to the Second Chance power.
Alix is not seen until the end of the episode. It is unknown if she was under the control of the Miracle Queen or not. However, it is proven that this was not due to the events of “Timetagger”. Since it wasn’t until said episode that Alix found out she had the Rabbit Miraculous version, not the one from the box, she also doesn’t know when she’ll get it (at least until “Evolution”), plus Chloé wasn’t specific with what she said.
Or it could have been due to her future self being able to see any point in time, it’s likely that she saw Chloé’s betrayal and knew all of Ladybug and Cat Noir’s allies were in danger but couldn’t save them all and knew that her abilities were the most dangerous, as Bunnyx could hide her younger self in the Lair until the Miracle Queen was defeated.
As of this episode, Chloé is no longer the holder of the Miraculous and part of the French superhero team Miraculous, as Ladybug takes the Bee Miraculous away from her for good.
This is the first episode to feature a scene after the end card.
At the end of the episode, Gabriel manages to repair the Peacock Miraculous.
The scene at the very end of the episode where Gabriel fixes the Peacock Miraculous foreshadows the scene at the beginning of the first episode of Season 4, “Truth”.
Luke taking a wasp sting to protect Marinette is similar to what Cat Noir did for Ladybug in “Dark Cupid” and Rena Rouge for Carapace in “Mayura”.
Kagami pushing Adrien out of the way is similar to what Alya did to Ladybug in “Style Queen”.
This episode contains many ironic and true facts about its people as well as their choices and actions:
Through Chloé’s betrayal, Ladybug actually helped out one last time by giving her and Cat Noir a chance to retrieve the Magic Box.
If Ladybug had chosen Chloé over Kagami, then getting the box back would have been much more difficult, and the same choice that Hawk Moth gave Chloé, he would have given Ladybug and Cat Noir’s other allies when he found out their identities or used the gems to create an army of miraculous supervillains that wished in “Kwamibuster”.
Not only that everything in “Evolution” and “Multiplication” would happen earlier.
And yet the debut of the other 8 heroes would never happen.
Like Chloé, Master Fu’s actions were helpful rather than hurtful, but unlike her, he had the foresight and compassion to see what would happen if he didn’t give up his title.
Not only did Chloé by joining Hawk Moth not only betray Cat Noir as an ally, but the circumstances in which she did so to the one she was in love with and the only other friend she had.
Chloé describes all the miracle mounts that turn out to be “absolutely ridiculous choices.” Of all the heroes in that scene, Chloé was the only one who wasn’t technically chosen by Ladybug’s own instinct. In “Maledictator”, the latter allowed the former to use Bee Miraculous when prompted, which would have made Chloé the only “absolutely ridiculous choice”.
Due to Hawk Moth’s lack of knowledge and encouraging Chloé to use the remaining gems against the heroes, but the remaining kwamis refusing to help, the villain almost created the same problem that started it all.
If it wasn’t for the kwamis, Hawk Moth (aka Gabriel Agreste) would have been responsible for hurting someone else close to Adrien due to his arrogance and she could have suffered something even worse than Nathalie and his mother.
As of “Evolution”, the result of fusing a total of four Miraculouses ended up being an electrical shock that damaged the mount, and since Chloé was wearing nine, the shocks would have amplified more than enough to probably kill her.
This also means that what Master Fu said in “Kwamibuster” is true.
Because of Hawk Moth’s choices, along with his lack of trust in others and lust for power, he destroyed his and everyone else’s best chance for it all to end peacefully, though there were still consequences.
And if Lucky Charm had called Ladybug to get Plagg back into “Style Queen”, Bee Miraculous wouldn’t have been lost in the first place, maybe he would have prevented one of the mistakes that led to Miracle Queen, but there would have been a possibility of the aforementioned mistake or something worse could have happened.
As shown when Dragon Bug creates a water barrier, the Dragon’s miraculous superpower can not only turn the user into water, but also create water.
