What Miraculouses May Exist Outside of the Known Seven?

As of Season 1, there are seven Miraculouses we know about, and we know about their present and future whereabouts. Only four have appeared, with three being used, but the fourth Miraculous and the three others that aren’t active will be fully revealed within Season 2/Season 3.

However, what about other Miraculouses? After all, we have evidence and confirmation that more than seven exist. For example, in a Lindalee Rose interview, Jeremy Zag revealed that the chest containing Miraculous has more than one level, the top level being the only one shown so far. Additionally, after confirming not every animal has Miraculous based on it, and when asked if there were only seven Miraculouses, Thomas Astruc’s response was, “ Actually it’s a bit more complicated, but now you’ll have at least 3 seasons to discover it.” He seems to be suggesting there is more going on with the Miraculouses, and there may be more than the seven we’ve seen in existence.

Note: I was asked how many floors the box has. At every button, there is a horizontal line that separates the wood, and there are 3 lines in total, resulting in 4 floors, including the top level. We don’t know what each floor looks like, but if they are the same as the top or include the same amount of places for Miraculous, which is 7, the maximum amount of Miraculouses the chest would hold and may possibly exist would be 28 Miraculous.

For my own curiosity, I searched at the information and images we have so far to see what Miraculouses have been suggested and might exist. The best sources for this search come from an animatic, the actual show, and the final design of Master Fu’s Miraculous-holding chest.

First, let’s look at this storyboard from the animatic of the theme song.

These Miraculouses in the chest are different from the ones showcased in the final version. The only three instantly recognizable Miraculouses are the Cat, Ladybug, and Moth Miraculouses. This is what the rest look like to me.

The lowest Miraculous right below the yin-yang symbol appears to be a ring. Displayed on the ring is a side-view of a lion. Going counter-clockwise, the next Miraculous is a bracelet, with a snake biting its tail. This is representing Ouroboros, which is defined by Wikipedia as “ an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail.” This Miraculous is either for a snake or a dragon, with the latter more likely by its appearance. The next Miraculous is another ring with a brown creature on it, looking like a bear or a related-appearing animal. The pair of earrings with stripes is a hard one to guess. It may be for a zebra or an older design for the Bee Miraculous, but I think it may be for a tiger (I’ll explain this reason later on).

Directly above the yin-yang symbol is a ring with a bull image on it. To the left is a weird-appearing pair of earrings that seems to be a chicken or rooster head in a side view with a visible eye. The last unknown Miraculous, a ring yet again, has the side view head of an eagle.

I’m sure most of these Miraculouses, if they appear in the final version, will have modified designs that reflect their animal themes stronger, but for being simple representations, those are the animals I see in them. A few of them are supported in images we’ve seen before during Nooroo’s explanation of Miraculouses in “Laybug & Cat Noir”.

From left to right, these are Tomoe Gozen, Cernunnos, and Herakles. None of the Miraculouses from the storyboard have anything strongly similar to Cernunnos, but by his ears, antlers, and tails, he seems to be suggesting the existence of a Deer Miraculous. Tomoe Gozen could have a Miraculous for any type of bird, but by her pointed beak, she seems to leaning towards a bird of prey. I predict she had the Eagle Miraculous seen in the animatic, although that Miraculous could actually be for another bird of prey, like a hawk or falcon. Finally, Herakles has a strong indication for his Miraculous with the lion pelt he’s wearing, and it matches up with the Lion Miraculous in the animatic. From these three, I think it adds more proof for an Eagle Miraculous and Lion Miraculous, and it suggests another possibility with a Deer Miraculous.

Finally, my source of evidence would be on the exterior of Master Fu’s chest. After close examination, I noticed that the clearly shown sides of the chest included one or two buttons with a Chinese character on each one. with twelve buttons in total, I was curious if they could possibly be representing the Chinese zodiac. With research, I found out I was right, and I created a model showing the placement of the buttons.

If these aren’t just for decoration and are actually based on existing Miraculouses, it would mean that twelve more Miraculouses exist. Some of these animals were ones I pointed out with the animatic, like the snake, the ox, and the rooster. The Miraculouses are strongly implied to have been created in ancient China, so it makes sense if the Chinese zodiac animals were included in the many Miraculouses formed. As for a Dragon Miraculous, it may not be a real animal in our world, but concept art for “The Chinese Legend” shows that dragons may exist, or another possibility is that is will be a real animal that is similar to a dragon, like a seadragon (as done in Fruits Basket).

These are my findings from the theme song animatic, the show, and Master Fu’s chest. Here is the list of Miraculouses that I think have evidence to exist as of now in February 2017:

There may be more, or not all of these will actually exist, but it’s the rough outcome I ended up with. I’m fascinated to see which ones of these will be shown. I don’t think every character in Paris is getting a Miraculous, but I’d love to see guest characters from time to time that happen to be currently wielding one of these. Also, Lindalee Rose revealed that a character we already know will get a Miraculous that we haven’t seen yet, meaning it definitely isn’t one of the seven Miraculous noticed in Season 1.

What are your thoughts? Do you agree with these possibilities, or do you disagree with some of them and/or hope for a different type of Miraculous? Which one, if they’re real, do you think the unknown Miraculous holder will get? I’d love to hear other fans’ thoughts on this subject.

Hi Lori! Can you tell us about any new interesting/valuable way your zoo cares for animals? (e.g. any new ways of checking on the health of an animal, or transporting them, etc.?)

Sure, I can try!

The use of technology for veterinary care is making leaps and bounds, hand in hand with training and husbandry practices. Every animal at a zoo is trained, but it’s not to do tricks - it’s to voluntarily engage in behaviors to assist in their care and minimize the times they need to be sedated. Tigers are trained to present their hips for vaccine injections, for example, and giraffes are trained to stand still for X-rays and blood draws from their necks.

Some animals are trained for sonograms, or even for finger-cuffs to measure blood pressure. My zoo has been doing a lot of interesting stuff with blood analysis and nutritional analysis to help them more effectively feed the animals and mimic their native diet. They’re also studying the ways floor substrates can help the animals - they recently changed the floor in the indoor elephant “gang room” (the huge building where they hang out when they’re not outside) and they’re experimenting with different substrates in the giraffe building as well.

My zoo is actually in the middle of remodeling/expanding their animal health facility. They’ll be able to do a lot more on-site as opposed to transporting animals to the university for certain procedures.

the animal crossing fandom is so good and pure?? like so much of it is people helping other people by doing things like making tutorials and trading and doing giveaways, and also its people sharing creations and complimenting other peoples stuff and???? its just so nice i love it

So you messed up with animal care...

Maybe things got crazy at work and you missed a feeding day. Maybe you were sick or busy and let enclosure maintenance go for awhile. Maybe you didn’t notice something wrong as soon as you should have. Maybe you just now realized that you had bad information and had been doing something wrong for a long time.

1) Breathe. Everyone who keeps animals has made mistakes. Every single animal keeper that you look up to now has screwed up in their learning process (I don’t know if I’m anyone to look up to, but I have certainly made my share of mistakes). You are not an evil human being for messing up.

2) Fix whatever needs fixing to the best of your ability. Catch up on the things you’re behind on. Fix husbandry you were misinformed about. Take your pet to the vet if they are sick.

3) Think about why this happened and what you can do to keep it from happening again. Do you need to set reminders for yourself? Do you have too many things on your plate and need to let some of them go? Do you need to find a more reputable source for husbandry information?

4) If whatever it was that caused this is something permanent/recurring that you aren’t sure you can prevent then think about whether you are in a good position to properly care for yourself and your animals right now. If you are in a place where you need to focus on your mental or physical health, or just making ends meet, and that is taking all your energy right now, then maybe you need to find someone to help with your pets or find them a new home. Sometimes you need to take care of you first.

5) Whatever you decide, take another moment to just breathe. You are not a horrible person. Whatever happened before is done now, you are going to do what is best for your animals from now on and that’s what matters.
