I have a strong feeling the Galra pilot Keith rescued will turn out to be Lotor. If for no other reason than the (modified) color scheme with purple, red and blue. Also to have a nameless, voiceless character appear and not come back later is too big of a mystery to not come back to. It would also bring back the Keith/Lotor rivalry from the original but with a twist, that being Lotor owes Keith his life.
I thought about it on my way home and so I’ve basically jumped off the turtle!Nino bandwagon and jumped on the peacock!Nino bandwagon.
I have a lot of reasons for doing so.
One, as was stated in my previous post, Nino shares a color scheme with Duusu–that being red and blue–as well as the eye print theme -
This is important because a majority of the other miraculous holders share color schemes and themes with their kwami -
Pinks and blacks (cuz Tikki seems more like a deep pink than red), plus, Tikki has freckles like Mari if you look closely enough at the image above. Additionally, Marinette has spots on her clothes.
Adrien only has a black shirt, but his eyes are green like Plagg’s and his shirt stripes, while also having yellow, are variations of green and purple (the inside of Plagg’s mouth is purple).
Alya has oranges in her shirt and has a general warm color theme in her hair and eyes. Also, depending on Trixx’s final design, the kwami will either have matching yellow eyes to Alya’s (as it looks like it does above) or purple eyes as was in what was initially announced of the fox design. Either one works as Alya has purple accents in her shirt. Also, she has that beauty spot and Trixx has little spots above their eyes.
Yellow and black, stripes, blue eyes. Pretty obvious I think.
Furthermore, I had previously argued that Nino looks more like a turtle than a peacock as far as his facial features, but I’m not so sure anymore. Nino’s nose has always been rather exaggerated and I presumed to think he looked like a turtle because of how his smile turned out, but I think it would be silly not to admit that Nino’s nose is rather beak-ish.
And while his hair could look rather shellish–in reference to a turtle–it could also be flat like a peacock’s. With the symbolic adornment of Nino’s hat in place of the sticky-up feathers.
The other miraculous users look respectively like their “animals” too, as I’ve pointed out before. I don’t have comparison pictures of Mari and Chloe, because they don’t look like actual bugs, but their features are small and “buggy,” so that’s worth considering. Also -
Cat. So much cat.
Wide smile beneath a cute nose. Fox, fox, fox (I called this one WAY before the spoiler, just fyi. It’s so obvious).
So yeah, anyway. Peacock!Nino. I know the peacock we’ve seen is clearly feminine, but if it is Mama Agreste, I don’t see her as being the active peacock miraculous holder. She doesn’t fit the age demographic for being a hero and the kids already have their teacher/guide in Master Fu. I would imagine that scan is of the past or a short time period of use, or is symbolic. Whether it’s through Adrien or Mama Agreste, I think Nino has a good chance of eventually getting the peacock, especially with that eye shirt he has as well as being Adrien’s best friend.
Like usual, this is all speculation and really holds no basis in canon. It’s all based on my observations, as usual, which change depending on the info released, but as of now, this is just an idea I had floating around in my head. I also think it would be really cool to see Nino sporting something as flamboyant as the peacock. He’s so chill, I assume he would pull it off swimmingly, especially since he’s already a performer :D
Oh, also, since we were talking about color and design connections, I’d like to show you this guy -

Colors and designs sure are interesting, huh (and scarves sure do a good job of covering things up, hmm?)
With Captain America: Civil War set to hit shelves soon, news broke this week that one of the film’s deleted scenes showed Bucky Barnes (The Winter Soldier) taking up Captain America’s shield. Unsurprisinglly, the clip has riled up comic books fans who’ve been impatient to learn whether the character will one day inherit Captain America’s moniker. And, now, the artist BossLogic is hyping fans even more with some new art that shows us what Sebastian Stan could look like as Captain America.
The artist’s work looks stunning as ever as BossLogic nails how Bucky Barnes’ mechanical arm might be altered to fit Captain America’s patriotic colors. Surely, the red-white-blue color scheme fits the hero’s aesthetic better than a giant red star. As for Bucky’s uniform, the character is seen sporting a tactical style as Captain America’s look has several notable changes. The outfit’s lower half is decidedly more stealthy and loose-fitting, but the uniform’s torso still showcases Captain America’s iconic white star. BossLogic also depicts ‘Bucky-Cap’ with long hair, but the artist did mock-up two pictures which have the character in Captain America’s helmet. One looks more traditional than Steve’s most recent helmets as the headgear features a pair of prominent wings, and the other leans heavily on The Winter Soldier’s usual face mask. The mask’s black muzzle looks identical to the one Bucky used to wear, but now, a large white ‘A’ has been added above the mask’s googles.
Sorry this is unrelated to the ask meme, but do you have any headcanons/thoughts to share about freezerburn??? I love it and i really don't think it gets enough attention
Absolutely! It’s very underrated by the fandom smh and it has??? All the best tropes??? Rich girl/girl from humble beginnings. The graceful one/the bruiser. Tol/Smoll. Fire/Ice. If you wanna reach you could even say red/blue aesthetics in terms of personality, not really color scheme. THE NICE ONE/THE MEAN ONE. IT’S ALL THERE GUYS.
I think it’s an underrated and underappreciated relationship both in fanon and in canon (though I won’t get into that because that could be a whole other post.) But, one thing I can say, is that there is a chance for a more in depth relationship between the two if things go a certain way. Because honestly, they’re the ones in closest proximity to each other. And if my predictions are correct (which they probably won’t be, but it would be fun to think of) then they will be the first two to meet up.
Weiss is probably going to escape with Klein’s and Ironwood’s (and maybe Winter’s) help. So we’ll go off of that.
Let’s just assume that Yang is still in Patch when all of a sudden there’s a knock on the door and in comes Weiss. They haven’t seen each other in months, haven’t heard from each other in months, and here she is, having gathered data from Ironwood on where he sent the robot arm, right at Yang’s doorstep.
Yang probably wouldn’t react for a second, and Weiss would be albeit awkward about it, probably apologizing for “intruding” and “dropping by without warning” you know, because she still somewhat wants to portray that she is still the friend Yang knew back at Beacon, so Yang could feel familiarity and comfort. I think Yang would immediately break the silence by bringing Weiss in for a hug, which she would immediately return.
Tai would probably just be in the background a little shocked because ??? the last person he was expecting to see was the recently dethroned Schnee Heiress/his daughters’ friend and teammate on his doorstep but he’d immediately welcome Weiss in.
I think the Xiao Long family could do wonders for Weiss, and show her what a family should be like. Even if it’s broken, there’s care, there’s familiarity, there’s love. Even without a romantic undertone that I low key hope Yang and Weiss to take on eventually, it could give Weiss something she’s always wanted - love.
Now some headcanons going along with this scenario:
Weiss would serve as a sparring partner for Yang. Yang is very good in hand to hand combat as we were shown in 4x9, however, brawlers are not the only opponents she will be facing. In fact brawlers are probably the least represented opponents she will be facing. Lots of the characters we’ve seen in this show fight with swords and guns and staffs and something that they can use with speed, agility, and at a long distance too. Having Weiss, basically a polar opposite in personality and fighting style, there to help spar with Yang would do a lot of good, for the both of them.
Weiss has been, thus far, training to summon. She hasn’t had any sparring partners either. So, again, it works in both of their favors.
Yang being absolutely enamored by Weiss’ summoning and probably wanna fight it.
YANG TEACHING WEISS HOW TO COOK PLEASE it would be the cutest thing??? I headcanon Yang as being a very good cook and baker, and we all remember Weiss’ failure at watching a cake bake for 5 minutes in chibi. So it would be really cute seeing Yang teach Weiss and Weiss failing miserably multiple times.
Ten bucks says they’d start throwing the ingredients at each other and start a food fight which would end with them covered in flour but laughing on the floor, almost crying in a way, because they needed that, and they missed that.
Doesn’t mean they got out of cleaning up though.
Weiss offering to help with house work and yard work but she’s never done any of that before so it all ends up being a hilarious disaster and Yang just laughs at how badly she failed but regardless helps her up.
Weiss actually being really good at caring for plants. I’d imagine she would water the flowers without even telling them and Yang probably watches from her window, or the door, and just smiles. It’s peaceful and serene watching her work. She doesn’t notice the heat in her cheeks.
The two girls having nights to themselves while Tai is out teaching or doing work and it’s just a time for them to really talk. They talk about a lot of things, about the good and the bad, actually communicating. Sometimes it’s strained and sometimes it’s natural. I think Weiss could also help bring up Blake too, and we could hear from Yang’s perspective where this has left her. Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if Yang still held animosity for Blake. But deep down Weiss would know Yang doesn’t truly mean it, and they’d just talk about everything you know? I’m a slut for good communication content.
Those said nights where they have the house to themselves Yang would introduce Weiss to pillow and blanket forts. Weiss thinks it’s childish at first but honestly she loves it once the finished product is there.
The two of them fall asleep on each other a lot, often with Weiss laying her head on Yang’s shoulder and Yang laying her head on Weiss. At this point Tai would come home to a living room turned into a fort with the tv still on, but the two girls asleep in each other’s arms and would grab an extra blanket and drape it over them. Maybe even kissing both of their heads before heading off to bed himself.
Weiss coddling and baby talking Zwei when no one’s around and Yang walks in with this knowing smirk and you can’t tell the difference between a tomato and Weiss at this point she’s blushing so hard.
THEM TAKING ZWEI OUT FOR WALKS.
I’m not sure if Patch happens to have a small town or village around, but assuming they do, I’d like to think they’d go into town and try and get a sense of normality back. Maybe go for cafe dates and even window shopping.
Yang telling Weiss about Summer would absolutely wreck my ass.
IT STARTS TO RAIN AND THE TWO OF THEM START DANCING IN THE RAIN.
Weiss wanting to do something nice for Yang and Tai because of how kind they’ve been to her after escaping Schnee manor that she’d put all those skills she honed while at their home to use and make them a nice meal to show how much she appreciates what they’ve done for her.
Yang having a particularly bad day and Weiss leaving little sticky notes for her to read with compliments and little motivational one-liners. Some have really bad puns.
Yang teaching Weiss how to make better puns and jokes and Tai coming in and absolutely annihilating them because he is the joke and pun master.
Oh my god just. Just please imagine Yang teaching Weiss how to play video games. Just. Imagine.
I think Weiss could help Yang also control her anger and semblance too. Not a lot but giving her tips may help.
I think at some point, the two girls would probably venture off on their own to start looking for Ruby since they probably where her destination is, and then from there find out where Blake could have gone. They want to make up with their team. They are the two steps forward and now they’ll take those leaps to bring their team back together.
With this in mind, and because embarrassing parents are embarrassing, Tai would probably make some dumb joke about how he’s “leaving Yang in your hands now, Weiss” and to “treat her right” and Weiss is honestly kind of embarrassed because she wasn’t that obvious right and Yang is kinda just like “DAD STFU”
Tai would actually genuinely be thankful for Weiss, because Yang needed a friend, someone close to her, someone her age, and here comes her teammate who was forcibly taken away. He’d express genuine gratitude for her coming for Yang.
MUTUAL PINING BUT NOT REALLY GOING FOR IT BECAUSE THEY AREN’T SURE IF THE OTHER REALLY FEELS THE SAME AS THEY DO
I have more to add but honestly this got UNNECESSARILY LONG SORRY LMAO but it was fun to theorize about!
Hey! I would probably say that not-Anubis would be black, considering Anubis is the Egyptian god of burials, and also death and the underworld (though the last two are more of Osiris's thing)
People keep saying this, but I’m really not sure it’s true. Our resident Magic-fan and Egyptologist @rudjedet had this to say about it:
From an Egyptological perspective, I’m personally not fond of Not-Anubis being either red or black. Anubis, in my opinion, is UW because of his role as protector of the dead and embalmer, and because of his part in the Weighing of the Heart.
And that’s assuming that not-Anubis has the same role on Amonkhet that Anubis has in Egyptian Mythology. The Jackal-folk we see on the pack art for Amonkhet looks distinctively red-blue (at least color-scheme wise).
doom is such a cool aspect i wish it were more clearly defined in canon
like, on top of its dark green color scheme its connected to blue/red color schemes and black/white color schemes
its also connected to bombs !! (take the symbol for doom and make it a complete circle and compare its shape to the tumor bomb). additionally, black and white is one of the few color schemes that the highly flammable barbasol DOESNT come in irl so it being black and white in comic is… highly suspicious
Thought about how Ilvermorny uniforms should look like! Stuck to the blue & red color scheme and gordian knot uniform descriptions via pottermore.com and added Native American & Hogwarts influenced aesthetics to the robes.
Bronze/gold brooches pinned to the top of student robes signify house symbols, while ponchos showcase the year of the student via number of stripes/bands similar to how the age of trees are read (tree rings). Robe style follows Hogwarts robes.
Note: Cultural fact (which I’ve just recently learned from an Anon - thank you so much!) headdress feathers that are showcased to be flared and upright indicates hostility and war, while headdress feathers that are faced down symbolizes peace.
The character above just happens to have feathers raised up for purely aesthetic reasons, although this’ll be a point that I’ll remember for future fanart :P
How do you think Ivermorny uniforms should look like? :)
