Since we’re all on the topic of mutual caring Ladynoir and Ladybug treating Chat Noir as her friend, let’s all appreciate the fact that every single time Chat Noir falls under an Akuma’s spell, Ladybug is always reluctant to fight him and only does so when it’s clear that he isn’t going to break away from the influence.
In spite of the fact that it happened before and how unlikely it’ll be for him to snap out of it, she still stops and tries to appeal to his better side.
Just in general, even though she knows she has to fight/hurt him, she clearly does not like it.
And she never blames him for it, never looked at it as something that discredited his competency as a hero, or mentions any of it afterwards (she told him at the end of Puppeteer, but only because Chat asked her).
And before anyone gets up in arms about her little rib there because I KNOW someone will, let me remind you that this was the same episode where Chat implied that Ladybug was ugly.
(look at that smug grin, he knows what he’s doing XD)
But we all know that he doesn’t actually mean that and that this and what Ladybug says to him above are all good-natured teasing two people who are friends do, and neither take the comments to heart.
So of course he smiles comforted that his Lady had everything under control and then quickly turns this into an opportunity to flirt with her.
And just. look at how he makes her laugh so happily!!
Chat Noir may exasperate her a lot when he doesn’t take the situations seriously enough, and there may have been times where Ladybug was too curt with him, but she always apologizes to him for those moments and praises his feats.
Regardless of whether or not she reciprocates his romantic feelings for her she deeply trusts him and cares for him as a person and her partner, and that is very evident throughout the show!!
