The Top Ten

Amazing personality, beautiful, seducing, strong. She gives me life in fairy tail! I would love to see her further strength! I believe she'll go up as the first in this voting! Keep up on er-chan~!
She's the coolest female in FT I think mira jane and erza are equal some people say... But I think its not cause she has lots of magics and can change her armor and some weapons but mira jane turns to demon the outfit is 2 its red and blue but I think erza is much tough and stronger than mira jane
Erza is amazing and beautiful character. Her strength isn't about the magic too, but also the motivation to live
[Newest]She is very beautiful and amazingly strong
More comments about Erza

Gray is a wonderful character simply because unlike the other members who each possess unique abilities E.G. Dragon Slaying, ice making magic can be learnt by almost all mages but it is up to you to hone it. Gray is creative (gosh, his intelligence is always overlooked, I have no idea why. Maybe because he enjoys his silly but friendly fights with Natsu too much? ) His battles usually include strategy (take his fast reaction by freezing his blood while fighting Ultear even though she only mentioned a detail once for example). His back story is heartbreaking but he chooses to live on. He is selfless. He has saved many souls (e.G. Lyon, Juvia, Ultear.). He is unbelievably kind and gentle (look how he treats the exceeds. Even Frosch! ) Plus he's ' hot.
He's so awesome! He has awesome skills and is by far he hotter one!
"There is a time when a man has to... STRIP! " coolest character ever!
[Newest]Gray is an ice maker mage. He always strips his clothes off to be serious in his fight

3Jellal Fernandes
I love Jellal! He was a jerk at first, but hey, he was possessed. When he became the kind Jellal he used to be, well, who wouldn't like him?
I just love Jellal. in the beginning he did some bad things, but he couldn't really control it, but he spends the rest of his life doing good things to make up for it. he's so cool, strong, and beautiful and him and ERza are so cute together.
I love jellal he's handsome and awesome
[Newest]He should be no.2

Lucy Heartfillia may not be the strongest but her personality makes up for it. She's hilarious, always keeps a smile on her face, always positive, emotional, and always puts other people ahead of herself. And even though her magic's not strong, she tries her hardest to fight for her guild and her friends. β™₯NatsuxLucyβ™₯
Lucy save the the world when she sacrifices Aquarius's key in manga chapter 384 in order to summon Spirit King and defeat Jackal. She's also gain Aquarius water controlling ability and uses Urano Metria to defeat him. After that, she restored the humanity and making everyone come back to Earthland. It is also a very curious thing that her mother's death date is the same as the dragons disappearance and she knowing the secret of One Magic. Lucy displays so much compassion towards her comrades and not wanting any luxury provided by her father and not through her hardwork. She doesn't like her fate to be decided and cared deeply towards her spirits she called friends. Moreover, she is also very kind even to someone she don't like. For example, her father Jude Heartfilia, she even go to the guild, Love and Lucky when she heard that her father may be in danger and beat the guild Naked Mummy. For me, she is the best character.
Lucy Heartfilia is just the most heartwarming character in this series, and I don't think I'll be able to love a fictional character as much as her. I wish she was my older sister, she is just great. She may not have much skill, but her magic holds much potential, and she can be very powerful, one of the most powerful if I must say. Her personality is great too, and she is a very explored character, very funny and sweet. I hope she ends up with Gray though, they're great together.
[Newest]Lucy is so pretty

Probably one of the worst characters ever. Over the course of 400 chapters he has received no character development whatsoever. There were moments where he could have some development, but they were just thrown out the window. For example, it was implied that Lisanna and Natsu have a very close bond with each other. Yet a few chapters after Lisanna is reintroduced to Natsu, she is then given the same treatment as Max; almost complete irrelevance. Another moment was when Gildarts told Natsu that one should notice their weakness to become stronger. This solid piece of advice was completely shoved to the side as well when Natsu was fighting against Zancrow. He should just bailed the fight along with other members and hid for a couple of years to train then do a massive comeback. Instead, he does his typical friendship gimmick and pulls off an insane move (granted it did look pretty bad-ass). Which brings me to another fault in his character, the friendship philosophy. A very common philosophy in shounen, however Natsu overkills friendship by spouting every single time when he is losing and every single time he says something about friendship *BAM* power-up. No training, no explanation, just a friendship speech. On top of that, he always wins. Sure he is the main character and he is destined to win nonetheless, but even main characters in other mangas have lost now and then. For example: Luffy vs Aokiji, Ichigo vs Grimmjow (the two previous bouts), Naruto vs Orochimaru, etc. This type of thing gives the character an urge to become stronger to protect things that are important to them and thus have them train for their power-ups (of course all mangas will have their questionable power-ups no doubt, but in Fairy Tail you get a power-up, you get a power-up, everybody gets a power-up), but in Fairy Tail the power-ups are just handed out like free samples. Lastly to conclude this rant of mine, what ever happened to Natsu's goal? His goal, as stated in the beginning of the story, was to find his dragon father. He has made ludicrously minimal progress in that goal. All he has done up until now is encounter a dragon slayer and asks what happened to their dragon mentor and then proceeds to fight. That's it. Is Natsu an enjoyable character? In some ways yes, there are many people who enjoy a main character who kick ass and Natsu does just that. He gives out a really positive vibe and many readers are a fan of such thing as opposed to a more darker and grittier character, and you know what, that's cool. Fans are free to be a fan of whatever character they want to be a fan of, but when analyzing a character, separate your analysis from your enjoyment.
A lot of these Natsu aren't really giving good reason as to why Natsu is the best (or worst) character in the series. There are two that I've seen so far that has given a concise reason as why they think so with facts from the story. Others are just "Oh he's Natsu" or "He is sooo funny", those aren't reasons.
Maybe his character is already developed enough? If not who are you to judge (not that your opinion is unappreciated) he is a great character who, as has already been mentioned, cares deeply for his friends. Would fairy tail be the guild it is without him fighting Gray or challenging Erza, and all in all making things humorous? Personally I think the show would be boring without him 'to fire things up! ' But that's my opinion...
[Newest]I think we should be giving natsu more credit here, he is hilarious but is also serious when it comes to fighting. He is strong and it seemed that he kind of held fairy tail together. He was like the core of happiness

I just love her. After all that happened to her (I mean her sisters "death") she was still strong, because she knew she had to protect her family. She always smiles. She know, that every single person is good inside. She always cheers everyone up, and if she cries, I'm crying too. She always believes in her friends and that there's rainbow after clouds. Such positive character! Besides, she's sometimes very funny.
She is one of the favorite character of this anime series but needs more story and fight scenes on her.
She has satan soul. She is scary if she turn into her satan soul

Juvia is awesome powerful funny always gets me on the floor laughing and is in love with gray. Her love for gray makes her so op also she's really hot
Why? I know Juvia is just weak but for anyone she love is been hurt she will kill anyone who does that. She is the best even though she's a stalker.
She loves her guild and its members, she also have the potential of being a s-class wizard because her power is pretty strong.. She even sacrificed herself for cana's sake and fought meredy to save gray.. She care for everyone in the guild and she is always doing her best in fighting with the guild's enemies
[Newest]Who says Juvia is weak? According to author of Fairy tail, she's the third strongest female of Fairy tail (First two are Erza and Mirajane).

HAPPY IS SUCH A CUTE PIE! I want him to be my pet! Aye!
Happy, the adorable comic relief character, you gotta love him he is cute
Happy is a blue cat and so cute. But he is not a cat he is an exeed

9Gajeel Redfox
He's so funny! Definitely deserves to be in the top ten!
Not only natsu rival but a awesome fairy tail wizard
He and his partner lily is great

10Sting Eucliffe
Sting is not only super strong but he constantly works hard to improve his skills and knows the true meaning of friendship. also he is so cute especially his friendship with Lecter and the way he looks up to Natsu is adorable.
He is uber strong, a funny person, calm, makes the BEST facial expressions... He is like my life in that show
He is way strong and a hunk. 😍😍😍

The Contenders

11Kagura Mikazuchi
Kagura almost defeat the great titania. she is very quick on her those and she do not use magic. she used a unsheathe sword and nearly beat erza

12Freed Justine
He is strong and intelligent. He can defeat all the fairy tail members if he got the time

He is honestly one out of a small handful of tolerable characters in Fairy Tail that make the series somewhat watchable/readable. Over the series of Fairy Tail he actually receives some character development and actually improves his personality over the course of the series. Whenever he gets into a fight, it's worth enjoying it due to it not being heavily one-sided. However, when it comes to him in GMG his character regresses drastically when he quotes Natsu and he one-shots Jura because that is not normal when it comes to Laxus's character. In fact, it really is unfortunate because he had trained to fight against Jura and we were given a power chart to see where the characters were power-wise (Jura and Laxus were pretty so they should have had a pretty equal fight lasting for 4-5 chapters). In the end, Laxus is still an enjoyable character since he rarely ever partakes in the nakama silliness of the guild members and he actually has some character development.
Laxus Dreyar is the only reason I still watch fairy tail, No one as quick as laxus, strong as laxus, in a fight there is no one better!
Laxus is a powerful man that he can beat his father and the raventail and jura look jura is one of the ten great holy mages and yet an s-class mage can beat him you are truly amazing laxus...

Um, he's amazing... What more is there to say?


The most mysterious and badass character in Fairy Tail spoilers:

I'm still waiting for him to return
What amazing about him is that very less people get to see him. well his name does include myst like mystery or mist.

Ultear... My favorite character... she had to go trough so much! And gave her life to save the world.. AND her Ice Maker magic is badass better then Grays by far! Also she is the 4 strongest female next to Ul, Erza and Mavis

16Rufus Lore
Awesome magic that can make or combine magic and don't know how he got two move shoted by gray.

17Rogue Cheney
Strong sometimes jerk like sting but it's funny how he changed and is a gajeel fanboy. Plus frosch hangs around him lucky plus he's so nice to he's cat who's in a frog suit and who's well kind of not the sharpest tool in the shed
Future rogue is very strong because he killed is brother and gain all his power so he is now the shadow light dragon slayer. he controlled 7 dragon to destroy the city.
Rogue is so cute

Wendy is so strong
She is so potential, I think one day she will surpass Erza and Natsu!
Wendy is by far my favourite character in this series! She is so powerful, she's literally the erza/mirajane/laxus of her generation! She has so much potential, this can be seen when she uses dragon force. The first/ only time Natsu did that was when Natsu ate the lacrima. She had such a hard life, a guild for the sake of a single person? All she ever new, destroyed in a matter of minutes? Seconds, even! When ft disbanded, she was by far the most affected. She's super cool and she deserves way more than this rubbish 14th place after Lyon, I can't believe Laxus is in the top 10, Lol

Lyon is so handsome and likes juvia
I have a soft spot for Lyon because he looks like Hitsuyuga from Bleach.

Zeref is so strong but sadly he wanted to exist in the world he is a kind man and always cares the people around him he also created E.N. D SO THAT It can kill him but he is super amazingly strong evil dark mage and he is actually the strongest everybody is afraid of him
Zeref is the strongest evil wizard that created acnologia and can take away people life in a flash while mavis was zeref friend and for someone can stand so close to zeref she must be really powerful. Zeref is death while mavis is like life.
Who couldn't sympathise with an eternal guy of darkness who cries and is sick of living go zeref get on top of Wendy.
[Newest]Awesome most powerful wizard ever. Makes you sympathise for him since he cried and is so nice.

We haven't seen his full power as yet but it is said he is the strongest wizard in fairy tail guild. he made the stubborn natsu heel down before him by releasing some of is power.
Gildarts is strong that he beated blue note

Loke is my bae

23Makarov Dreyar
The same as mentioned above.

Is part of jellals guild and is ultears adopted daughter. She's nice and happy after the time skip. She's also hot and friends with Juvia, Jellal and ultear.

She is so very cute and has the makings of a master, and she was the founder of fairy tai...I mean how awesome is that?!

26Cana Alberona
Cana Alberoba has been in the S-Class trails. She has used Fairy Glitter. She can fight. While drunk. Her character has received excellent growth throughout the series, far more than many of the main characters.
She's funny hot awesome daughter of the lengendary gildarts plus she doesn't get enough love considering she has leader type qualities in desperate times and was in the s class exam.


28Minerva Orlando
She has magic power that even the great mavis know and feared. she fights dirty but she is still strong although she lost to erza as well
Minerva is a BADASS I mean her magic and tricks are amazing. I hope she stays a villain

I love master Makarov, I think he's awesome. I love how he protects everyone in the guild, and how he cares about everyone in the guild. I also love it when he calls himself the parent and all the members his children. I think he deserves a better place but that's just my opinion.
Master is always cheerful whether it's a place to be cheerful or not he always has agood mood. he also mantions his guild members as brats which is super cool. He had awesome children like Ivan and Laxus. WEll I would like to know who he married with but it hasnt been mentioned in fairy TAIL.

30Levy McGarden
I just love levy, maybe because I can relate to her very well. Especially since we are both bookworms at heart.
Hey if I ever had a wish I would have wished to meet levy since we share many similarities between us
She maybe not the strongest Fairy Tail character. But she is the brain of Fairy Tail Guild!

He is so awesome tiny to bigπŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

32Lisanna Strauss

Owned by Rogue frosch is an exceed whose best friends with lector and after someone says something he replies "fro thinks so too". He's cute and keeps rogue sane and controlled but no ones knows whether he's a male or female.
I think frosch sense of humour is awesome. because all he does is to say 'fro thinks so too'. Awesome. I think it's a male. because he goes very well along with lector because he's a male. Frosch is said to be very outgoing and can do anything to protect its friends.
He is so cute! Who wouldn't love this cute little guy?! 😍😍


He is funny with his hearing ability and he is strong... His name is also Erik.
I think he was super cool with Kinana and told her he didn't call her. actually I think Kinana was cobra's dearest Cubelios somehow or something else maybe.

I don't know about you guys but I think that mest is pretty hot. You know when he's not chewing on rocks or anything
Mest has funny habits and his magic is cool.

36Elfman Strauss
Beast take over enough said
Eh... What about Mirajane

37Jenny Realight

38Sherry Blendy
She's funny, hot and is obsessed with love.
Her powers include controlling celestial wizards and controlling elements into "dolls".

Lucky is Happy's father who was exiled from extalia and became a hard working farmer with his wife. His catchphrase kahh is hilarious.

Cute, funny and only natsu understands him.

Hilarious for a dragon who hates humans and isn't all there which makes him funnier.

42Warrod Sequen
4th most powerful member of the ten saint wizard magic unknown founding father of fairy tail and tells really weird jokes but a total badass

A loyal companion of sting and good friend just a little annoying.

44Jura Neekis
Awesome saint wizard nough said.
Jura is one of the ten wizard saint even though he lost to laxus that doesn't mean he is not stronger than him. jura power of destruction is 8000+ he his almost on gildart level.

This guy should be 2nd place he was created by the book of zeref and the strongest one as well he defeated the spirit king. he didn't really defeated him but you can say he won the fight. he his very calm when fighting.

46Blue Pegasus guild master Bob

47Romeo Conbolt
He reminds me of Konohamaru Sarutobi.
He's the cutest character in the whole anime. He deserves to be way higher.

48Macao Doranbolt
A blue haired man haha he is actually cooll

49Macao Conbolt

50Dan Straight
Funny loves lucy and all women kind of off like Virgo.
