The Top Ten

1
Erza
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
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~!
Erza is amazing and beautiful character. Her strength isn't about the magic too, but also the motivation to live
[Newest]She is beautiful and amazing. Her magical power is vast. I also like how she had such a sad past, but continued to live on without showing all her emotions.

2Lucy
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. ♥NatsuxLucy♥
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.
She is not perfect obviously when we compare to others, but that is the reason I love her most.
Although she is kind of a crybaby, she smile to the full soon after crying. Her character has a reality, therefore very attractive.
[Newest]I don't like how she is always the damsel-in-distress.

3Gray
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's my favorite because he's very civil in his fights. He's funny too.

4Natsu
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.
Natu cares for everyone. He is not selfish. He thinks of others first before himself. He is also awesome in strength and power. I love his character.
[Newest]He is the most powerful character in fairy tail you fools. Look he is the one who saves everyone in fairy tail guild. So you think he is worst but I think he is the best

5Mirajane
She is one of the favorite character of this anime series but needs more story and fight scenes on her.
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.
Well she's my love in FT. I know she is imaginary but still I have a crush on her.
[newest]
She is too pro satan soul for the festival damn she beat blue Pegasus in one shot

6Jellal 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 love jellal he's handsome and awesome
When Jellal became kind, he's amazing. He was just possessed when he's bad. He's handdsome and powerful.
[Newest]He's SO awesome, hot, handsome and powerful :3 AND he makes Erza happy :3

7Happy
HAPPY IS SUCH A CUTE PIE! I want him to be my pet! Aye!
Aye sir! Happy has a cute personality and is always cheerful. and I should mention what he did to Jackal, a member of Tartarus, a part of the Balam Alliance. spoiler alert: when the person was gonna explode[ becuse Jackal used bomb magic] Happy carried him to the sky. after a while he exploded. then happy came and had an afro instead of fur and said it was a close call!

8Gajeel Redfox
He's so funny! Definitely deserves to be in the top ten!
Not only natsu rival but a awesome fairy tail wizard
So much character development. iron shaow dragon mode is amazing. I mean come on? How can you not like Gajeel?

9Laxus
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.
He is so cool & his lighting magic is so awesome.
He is awesome character in fairytail also he love fairytail more than anyone else. He is also a strongest individual wizard.

10Mystogan
Um, he's amazing... What more is there to say?

freeflight

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.

The Contenders

11Juvia
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.
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
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]Stalker alert! But she's is caring and truly cares for her guild.

12Gildarts
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.

13Wendy
Wendy is so strong
She is amazing!
I love her

14Makarov Dreyar
The same as mentioned above.

15Ultear

16Zeref
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.
Awesome most powerful wizard ever. Makes you sympathise for him since he cried and is so nice.

17Cana 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.

18Carla

19Pantherlily

20Lisanna Strauss

21Master
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.

22Levy 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!

23Cobra
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.

24Frosch
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.
Me:FRO'S SO CUTE <3

Frosh:Fro thinks so too

25Mest
