In "Princess Fragrance", Tikki becomes sick after a battle Ladybug fought in the rain and tells Marinette of the healer that can help cure her. Marinette wanted to grant Tikki's request but she has been late to school too many times and didn't want to late again, so she asks Tikki to hang on until school ends for the end, Tikki agrees to wait and to hang on for that time. As Marinette walks down the school's steps while talking to Tikki, she trips and the Kwami flies out of her bag and into the clutches of Chloé Bourgeois, who falls for Tikki's "toy act" and decides to give Tikki to Prince Ali, despite Marinette asking Chloé to give the Ladybug Kwami back to her. As Marinette goes to retrieve and rescue Tikki, the titled villain attacks the hotel in order to reach Ali, and after Princess Fragrance finally catches up to Chloé, Ali, his chaperone and Cat Noir in their getaway cat, Marinette finds Tikki in it and takes her straight to the heal. Because Marinette doesn't know that the heal is the one who gave her the Ladybug Miraculous, tells Fu that Tikki is her "pet" and is happy to see that his odd treatment has cured Tikki. After they left the shop and found a place where they can talk and transform, without prying eyes, Tikki nuzzles Marinette's cheek as she is happy to be with her again, after the day they both had, before the Kwami helps Marinette to become Ladybug.

Because Marinette's designs in "Reflekdoll" requires a different pair of earrings that goes along with the rest of the outfits jewellery, she reassures Tikki, who wasn't happy about the idea of her taking the Ladybug Miraculous off, that it would be for very short time. When Reflekta and her titled Sentimonster attacked and made everyone else look like mirror images of herself, however, Marinette's choice of taking her earrings off for another pair prevent her from transforming into Ladybug and being hit by Reflekdoll's ray had made it hard for Tikki to find her. Which is why Tikki and Plagg had little choice but to allow their owners to swap their Miraculouses with each other, until the end of the battle where they are freely able to swap back. Marinette is happy to have Tikki back and switches the ordinarily pair of earrings back with her Miraculous earrings, as she promises Tikki that she won't take them off again.
