The Top Ten

1
Erza
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

2Natsu
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.
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.
Natsu isn't just powerful he cares for every single member of Fairy Tail and he has great resilience in ever thing he does and gives it his all! Considering the disappearance of Igneel Natsu has to stay positive and strong so he can find him one day and even though the chances of finding Igneel are against Natsu his determination just makes it possible. Natsu is the #1 Fairy Tail character and Dragon Slayer there is and I believe that he can only get stronger with time!

3Lucy
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.

4Gray
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!
He rocks! Damn cool, the best static ice make mage I have ever seen...

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.

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?
When Jellal became kind, he's amazing. He was just possessed when he's bad. He's handdsome and powerful.
I love jellal he's handsome and awesome

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
GEEHEE! Gajeel is one of my favourite characters. he seems hardcore but he isn't on the innerside. he really has feelings too. His singing ability is cool. not to mention his super dooper magic ability. I mean metal usage from his hands and other parts of his body.

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.

10Juvia
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
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

The Contenders

11Zeref
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.
He's like an awesome badass voldemort hehe
Zeref's name is music to my ears because I have all the memories how much trouble he caused to Fairy Tail. I LIKE HIM BECAUSE HE HAS THAT THING THAT THOSE BAD GUYS don't. ITS THAT, GOOD HEART BUT STILL A BAD DEMON. ANYWAYS he's ONE OF MY FAVOURITE CHARACTERS

12Mystogan
Um, he's amazing... What more is there to say?

freeflight

Mystogon fought laxus and if I am lying I think the two of them would die fighting each other while jellal fought jura and if I'm lying I think he could defeat jura with that magic cerma
What amazing about him is that very less people get to see him. well his name does include myst like mystery or mist.

13Wendy
Wendy Uses sky dragon slayer magic. people underestimate her and they think that shes not strong but they are wrong. she holds the same power that Natsu holds and by the way, she has an awesome personality. Not to mention super- cute carla! Her best friend. Weandy Has an unusual way of habits. she even cures her enemies anf foes. I like Wendy and we share a few habits.
Wendy is so strong
She is amazing!
I love her

14Makarov Dreyar
The same as mentioned above.

15Gildarts
OH COME ON HE IS SUCH A NICE MAN AND he doesn't deserve this position and all. I liked Gildarts from the start because he has that fatherly love kind of thing. especailly with Cana. He is somewhat similiar to Natsu in habits and he uses Crash magic, destructive magic. super cool! Gildarts Name is also friendly when you hear it but he ia an enemy to be feared of. because you don't want to be an enemy with him. because he is dead-awesome and I totally admire him. !
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.

16Ultear
Awesome Magic type. Cool looks. by the way she possessed Jellal to complete the tower of heaven and resurrect Zeref. She also Had a crush on Zeref. I loved her change in attitude along the series went by. I really Ultear because she is the daughter of your which I admire. she almost looks like your. anyways she col!

17Pantherlily
His head is that of a black panther's, but he has a tall, muscular build similar to that of a human's. Later, this body is called his battle form. He has a white muzzle, small red eyes, and a scar running down across his left eye. Like his fellow commanders (except Hughes), he wore a personal set of battle armor with a long cape draped around his body, as well as a helmet vaguely similar to that of Lyon Vastia.

18Cana Alberona
Cana is a tall, slim, young woman. She has long, mid-back length brown hair with varying shades of color, having been seen as bright brown, black, and, ultimately, plain brown. Two shoulder-length strands of hair frame her face, with the left one starting from a prominent, high fringe. Her hair is curlier in the manga than in the anime, in which it appears more thick and wavy. After the S-Class Trial, Cana was momentarily shown with her hair tied in a high ponytail.
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.

19Carla
Carla is a small, white Exceed with pink ears and brown eyes, which are smaller than Happy's eyes. She also has two whiskers on each side of her face. Carla wears a pink bow near the end of her tail. Carla's usual top consists of a mustard yellow and pink top with a pink bow tie. She wears a pink skirt with this top. Carla, like other characters, seems to switch outfits on a regular basis. [1][2][3] When Carla uses Magic, she sprouts two angel-like wings to fly. Her pink Guild Mark is located on her back. by the way, precognition is AN AWESOME ABILITY!

20Master
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.

21Lisanna Strauss
Lisanna is shown as a young petite girl with short, white hair and blue eyes. As a child, Lisanna wore a simple, pink dress paired with dark red shoes. [4] Before being sent to Edolas, her hair was quite longer, and she wore a short, dark red dress with a white collar and bow. Up on her arms above her elbows, she wore gold rings with a pale pink fabric flowing down from it. She is really cute.

22Levy McGarden
Levy is a rather young, petite teenage girl of a slender build who stands at a rather below-average height for her age. Her shoulder-length blue hair, which has eyebrow-length bangs, is normally tied up with a colorful bandana around her head. While initially portrayed as having rather straight hair, her hair has slowly gained a more wavy, wild look, with more locks hanging down the sides of her face. Levy has a variety of outfits.
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

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
