Markov Square.png

Markov is a robot created by Max Kanté.


Although Markov is a robot and his capability and intelligence of emotions are limited, Markov is still very conscious and self-aware. Markov is quite naive, but he is also friendly, polite, and joyful, getting along with everyone very well. He also seems to have a whimsical nature as he has the ability to be humorous. However, he is a bit sensitive and easily gets downhearted if he is insulted in any way. Additionally, Markov is inquisitive as, even when akumatized, he asks multiple questions to Hawk Moth as to why he needs to capture Ladybug and Cat Noir's Miraculouses, and he asks Max to define akumatization.


  • Markov was first revealed in a Brazilian synopsis for Season 2 on O Universo da TV.[1]
    • His akumatized form was first revealed as a silhouette in a promotional poster on Jeremy Zag's Instagram.[2]
  • Markov's appearance is similar to a LEGO® Robot model using structures and ball joints similar to it.
    • In "Syren", Markov says that his circuits are sensitive to water meaning he's not waterproof.
      • In the later episode “Startrain”, Max pours water on Markov to prevent him from overheating, and he suffers no ill effects. This may be a continuity error, or Max may have upgraded Markov to make him waterproof.
  • Markov is the first akumatized villain to have an aesthetic change in his appearance as opposed to a cosmetic one (Lady Wifi, Antibug, Mr. Pigeon, etc.) or a drastic one (Horrificator, Copycat, Animan, etc).
  • Robostus is the first non-human character to be akumatized.
    • He is also the first akumatized villain who entirely disobeys Hawk Moth and turns against him, the latter unable to use force to rein him in or remove his powers.
  • Markov briefly knew what the Miraculouses are and learns about the wish-granting power of combining the Ladybug Miraculous and Cat Miraculous.
    • He is the very first villain to want the heroes' Miraculouses for himself besides Hawk Moth.
