Barkk is the kwami who is connected to the Dog Miraculous. With her power, Barkk's wearer can use the collar necklace to transform into a dog-themed superhero.
Barkk is currently dormant in her Miraculous within the Miracle Box, being kept by Marinette Dupain-Cheng.
Barkk is 10 centimeters (or 4 inches) tall and is light brown with a white mark around her mouth, between her eyes, and on her chest. She has dark grayish cyan eyes, drop ears, a whisker on her forehead, and a pink tongue. She also has a tail that curves upwards.
Barkk can fly, levitate, and phase through solid objects. She can also carry objects that are larger and/or heavier than herself.
As a kwami, Barkk is able to transform the holder of the Dog Miraculous into a dog-themed superhero, although it is currently unknown what the transformation looks like or what powers the transformed person gains.
Before Season 2
Barkk came into existence when the concept connected to her came into existence. Before the Miraculous jewels were created, she and the other kwamis traveled all over the universe unable to interact with humans. Then, thousands of years later, a mage created the Miraculous. When its Miraculous was not being worn, Barkk was dormant in the Dog Miraculous, which was stored inside the Miracle Box.
During Season 2, Barkk was dormant in the Dog Miraculous.
In "Sandboy", Barkk was celebrating Nooroo's birthday in the Miracle Box with the other kwamis and she was excited when Tikki and Plagg arrived. She marveled at the gift Tikki brought, a marker that she thought was a paintbrush, and she played with the other kwamis. When it came the time to find Nooroo, Barrk got into position in an effort to contact him, but the kwamis contacted his wielder instead. Upon hearing him, they shuddered at the thought of being his slave and they prevented him from discovering their location by cutting off the connection. They realized that if they contacted Nooroo's wielder, rather than Nooroo, then someone must have been akumatized and that Tikki and Plagg's wielders would be in danger.
During Season 3, Barkk was dormant in the Dog Miraculous.
In "Kwamibuster", she was activated along with her kwami brothers and sisters to help Multimouse enact her plan to rescue Tikki and Plagg. During the confrontation, Barkk was one of the few kwamis captured but was set free with the help of Multinoir. After Kwamibuster's defeat, She and the others cheered for Marinette as their plan was a success and returned to Miracle Box.
In "Miracle Queen", she was activated alongside Stompp, Roaar, Ziggy, Daizzi, Mullo, Orikko, and Fluff, by Queen Bee with the intent to use them against Ladybug and Cat Noir. After being commanded to transform her, they collectively all withheld their transformation phrases. Upon hearing Master Fu renounce his title, they protest, but Master Fu does so anyway, resulting in the Miracle Box changing shape and form. After failing to escape, Queen Bee throws off their respective Miraculouses, and they, alongside their kwamis, are returned to the Miracle Box by Ladybug.
