Strongest Fairy Tail Characters

The Top Ten
1 Zeref Dragneel Zeref Dragneel is a character from the anime/manga series, Fairy Tail, created by Hiro Mashima. He debuted in chapter 200 of the manga, and episode 96 in the anime. In Fairy Tail, Zeref is considered to be the strongest Dark Wizard of all time, who was under the Curse of Contradiction. He is the founder ...read more.

400 years of well developed black magic
Created demons with powers almost no human could ever come close to
Feared by the whole world, and looked upon as the strongest and most evil mage of all time
The Emperor of 12 of the strongest mages in all of Earthland
Hated by god him/herself.
The reason for Fairy Tail to even exist.
Respected enough by the mighty Acnologia to have a conversation with the guy.
Mavis Vermillion's lover and killer.
Could kill you or anyone that is mortal with a single touch
The power to exterminate the whole world if he so dearly wished

With all of these feats you tell me just why he would not be ranked as the strongest Fairy Tail mage?

Zeref is without doubt the strongest character in Fairy Tail. I think he is even stronger than Acnologia (who was able to destroy an entire country single-handedly) since he was the one who turned Acnologia into a dragon. His combination of Living magic and Death Arts is sick. He could just kill anybody in an instant with his Death Arts and so far we have only seen 3 of his spells (Death Wave, Death Orb and Death Pillar) and I'm assuming there are far more powerful spells. Also with his Living magic, he could create demons. Few strong ones are E.N. D, who Igneel was unable to defeat, Silver, who froze the entire Sun village and Atlas Flame and Jackal who blew up the entire Magic Council. Zeref shouldn't be at the bottom of the list. In my opinion, he is the OP character of Fairy Tail (much like Naruto's Madara).

Zeref can kill anything in the vicinity of him when he loses control of his power, because he CARES about human life. Also, he's immortal. Plus, the Ankseram (if that's how you spell it) Curse took away Mavis's life force (though she is alive) when they kissed, and Mavis has the same curse and is also immortal! How does that even work?! Among other powers, freezing time, sensing things around him, life magic, an empire at his command, black magic, and fire magic. So yeah, pretty overpowered, though Mavis is very close in strength.

Zeref is known as the most dangerous wizard and that he's unrivalled, no one can match his power. His magic isn't death, its death itself, Also history has it 400 yrs ago he obtained immortality, he can't die and on top of that he created demons such as deliora and lullaby which were overwhelmingly powerful, in which lullaby had natsu erza and gray to take it down, and lullaby had your use iced shell on it and that ended with her dying. Well not exactly she was the shell, but none the less he's one terrifying wizard and should definitely rank 1st

2 Acnologia

Acnologia deserves at least 3rd place, as he destroyed Gildarts, who is rank three currently. His breath attack was vast enough to demolish Tenrou Island when he was toying with Fairy Tail, and Mavis Vermillion had to intervene to stop him. He destroyed a nation and intimidated the magic council. Even Zeref stated that he possessed sufficient power to destroy the world and bring about a new era. He isn't as powerful as Mavis, who could use Fairy Sphere to deflect his attacks and then implement Fairy Glitter to smite him. Nor is he as powerful as Zeref, who could overrun him with hordes of demons, and if he managed to survive, kill him with a flick of his wrist before a breath attack was possible. Zeref appears to be immortal, and Mavis seems to be able to come back from the dead at will, dwarfing Acnologia in power but still, he is formidable.

Just to get this straight:

Acnologia ripped Igneel apart
Acnologia desecrated Irene
He Dragon clawed God Serena
He only has one arm
He chased after Blue Pegasus and made anot her crater in the ocean while fighting Jellal in dragon form

So, why the hell is he ranked under Mavis, Mavis of all people! He's stronger than Zeref all and in case you've forgotten, Zeref is the true villain since he killed of Natsu and god knows what he is going to do next. Fairy Heart Zeref vs Acnologia, not sure on that one because don't forget that every dragon slayer has dragon force, and Acnologia has not begun to use his full power, hell, he was using 5% against Igneel. So I say you bring it down a notch.

Got his body and soul separated across dimensions, held back massively, got weakened, and his defeat was still absolutely plot. He one shot a Gildarts tier opponent effortlessly in human form. He has killed thousands of dragons, which no sold Laxus and tanked Natsu. He is immune to magic, so much so that Igneel did nothing. He has time and space magic also. Prime Igneel and Fairy Heart Zeref are the only two people in the series who can do anything to him, and Zeref out of Regen alone, and that's assuming Acno can't take it away. And he was still holding back against Igneel. He is indisputably superior to any and everyone. Any non biased person can see that.

This Guy took out Gildarts who is #3 on this instantly. The Magic Council is so scared of it the ran at the mention of his name. Even Zeref believes Acnologia is powerful enough to destroy the world and bring about a new era. All of Fairy Tail combined was defeated easily by him and it took their combined power in addition to all that of Mavis Vermillion just to stop his breath attack. The only reason they survived was because he left thinking he had won.

3 Mavis Vermillion Mavis Vermilion is the first guild master of the infamous guild Fairy Tail. She started as a poor young girl with no parents and friends. She worked for the guild Red Salamander on Tenrou Island. Tenrou Island is also the island that belongs to the Fairy Tail guild where her grave is.

This is BS... Mavis is merely a tactician ( though most of her calculation ended in no much profit that could contribute much to the winning of the guild, but we'll consider she is real good in one way or another ). Her renowned Fairy spells : Fairy Glitter, Fairy Sphere and Fairy Heart are on the otherhand great piece of work. But what we see so far Fairy Glitter gets them a point in the Grand Magic Games, and Fairy Sphere barely saved the fairies from a mere roar of Acnologia, a mere roar! That too comes with a price of lost 7 years.
In conclusion, Mavis is awesome and one of the smartest character. But if we're talking strength, that's a whole different story.

It's pretty clear, from who she is, and her backstory, and her titles, and what's been shown of her in the manga, that she is extremely powerful. And not only that, but the most recent anime arc at the time that I write this is Fairy Tail Zero, which just might be the most adorable Fairy Tail arc ever.

I'm not even a Fairy Tail fan anymore, to be honest (though I still like it because it gives me a good laugh, and it's nice and friendly), but Mavis and the recent anime arc are awesome, and while a Fairy Tail fan I am not, a Mavis and Fairy Tail Zero fan I am.

Mavis is a girl of extreme potential. Not only can she easily outsmart her opponents, but a great wizard. Having only started learned magic for a short period of time, she was able to cast a spell that would take other 10 years to master. She also created the three great fairy magic that hold great destructive and protective force and seems to have a connection with lumen histoire, fairy tail's light and it's most powerful but, mysterious thing.

Mavis is a second number one, as she is as powerful as Zeref. Her three great spells make her superior, but Zeref's demons make up for it. If she cast Fairy Sphere for protection then smote Zeref, eventually the demons would overrun her protective sphere and slaughter her. The alternative is Fairy Law, which can wreak havoc on a large area, making her perhaps the most formidable foe in the anime and manga.

4 Natsu Dragneel Natsu Dragneel is a Mage of the Fairy Tail Guild.Natsu is carefree and reckless in nature, and, despite his consistent brawls with the other members of Fairy Tail, he is a fiercely loyal and protective friend. He is willing to go down fighting for his friends, regardless of how futile it might seem. ...read more.

Natsu beat Zeref so I don't know why he is in fourth I mean he has igneels power basically strong. Natsu is cute funny clumsy and he will also train to protect lucy and his guild mates. So I believe natsu is underrated. same with lucy because she beat juvia she beat mard gear and she was pretty stron and she was the main one to do the fairy sphear

He is adept with his Dragon Slayer Magic and makes use of it in many different ways in combat. As with all Dragon Slayers, he can consume his respective element, with the exception of that which he has created, to replenish his energy reserves. The heat of his fire can increase in temperature, which is proportional to Natsu's emotional state. Natsu subconsciously used this against Erigor; his flame's heat significantly rose as he got more enraged. This is also called the Flame of Emotion. He incorporates the flames he ignites into his fighting style, greatly increasing the damage of his blows. As such, Natsu's Magic revolves around the usage of fire that can spout from any part of his body.

Natsu is an amazing character. In my personal opinion, Natsu is the strongest character but not just physically; also emotionally and mentally. Natsu's dedication to his friends and guild is quite amazing, and he is strongest when he's angry. Natsu has been through so much in his past and present that it's made him stronger. The blunt, honest truth is that many people would sink into depression if they went through what Natsu has but he has the strength to have hope for a brighter and better future. So technically, he is the strongest character; it doesn't matter if it is only mentally and emotionally because that's more than some people can handle.

He is good with his Fire Magic, and, he can consume fire, like other Dragon Slayers. Consuming the fire also "revved him up", in many situations. He is also rather smart with his battle strategies.
Natsu is a loyal friend which will fight for Fairy Tail. His loyalty gives him some weaknesses, but mainly gives him strengths:fighting for the people he loves gives him more power. In the Phantom Lord arc, he was terribly injured by fighting Gajeel but when he saw his beloved guild being destroyed he was encouraged more and believed he had to fight for it.
Erza also said in the anime Phantom Lord arc that she believes Natsu would be the one to surpass her. Erza is a very formidable warrior with Requip so Natsu must also be powerful.

5 Gildarts Clive

Gildarts is the strongest wizard of fairy tail... The fact that he didn't show up during the battle with tartaros means that he is reserved for something much better... Like shanks, his true potential is still unknown... He has been shown to be inferior to acnologia, but he is stronger than mard geer (defeated by dragon force natsu and gray), hades (defeated by lightning flame dragon mode natsu), makarov, and many other strong characters... As of now, he is clearly inferior to only 4 characters... END, zeref, acnologia and mavis... He made natsu give up by just powering up... Gildarts is reserved for something special... Probably a future fight with one of the big three (END, zeref, acnologia)... Really looking forward to his grand return...

Crash, Gildarts' signature Magic, Crash is an extremely powerful Caster Type Magic that smashes everything the user comes into contact with into pieces. It can even be used to both crack Magic into pieces, nullifying its effects, as well as to reduce the Magic's power and to deflect it. Even the most powerful spells are rendered useless when faced with this destructive and highly advanced Magic, which is seemingly difficult to control even for an extremely powerful individual like Gildarts.

Cash, Gildarts' signature Magic, is an extremely powerful Caster Type Magic that smashes everything the user comes into contact with into pieces. It can even be used to both crack Magic into pieces, nullifying its effects, as well as to reduce the Magic's power and to deflect it. Even the most powerful spells are rendered useless when faced with this destructive and highly advanced Magic, which is seemingly difficult to control even for an extremely powerful individual like Gildarts.

Gildarts Clive is a user of Crash Magic, which is capable of nullifying enemy magic, or destroying something instantly. Crash Magic is enough to defeat the second strongest member of Grimoire Heart, Bluenote Stinger, and it's what makes him the Ace of Fairy Tail. Even without Crash, he's still immensely powerful. His magic energy is enough to make Natsu, who is stubborn and never admits defeat, give up.

6 Laxus Dreyar Laxus is an S-Class Mage from the guild named Fairy Tail. Laxus is a very tall and muscular young man with orange eyes (portrayed as blue/gray in the anime); his hair is slicked back, its numerous spiky strands pointing backwards, though some falls down in a small tuft on his forehead. He has a distinct ...read more.

Many says that Natsu is the strongest but he isn't. Laxus is stronger becomes he use is own power and unlike him, Natsu only uses other power, he even uses Laxus power. At the Cathedral Laxus only lost because his heart wasn't in it. He never intet to kill anyone. When Laxus was poised he yet defeated enemies that Natsu couldn't. Natsu only won against Acnologia because he borrowed all the Dragon Slayers power and the author had to make the main character win if he didn't laxus would win. I don't say that Laxus is stronger than Gildartz but I just want to confirm to those who think that Natsu is stronger I just want precise that he isn't and that you have to analyse Fairy Tail better.
P.S You have to admit that Laxus is badass.

Why is Laxus only at 6th!? There's a reason he was able to take on all of Raven Tail, beat Jura who's the 5th strongest saint and said to be better than Makarov, and he beat Natsu in a single hit in their rematch. Their first match was a tie because Laxus wasted his magic on Fairy Law since he didn't actually see Natsu or Gahjeel as enemies not to mention that when Gildarts first appeared, Erza said that back when Laxus was in the guild, Gildarts was probably the only one that was even close to his strength meaning that Laxus is stronger than Gildarts.

Even as Laxus was on his deathbed, it was stated that with the amount of Magical Barrier Particles (fatal to wizards) that he had in him he should not be alive, but very dead. He was then able to beat Tempester the IMMORTAL who Natsu had been fighting against for several episodes and made no headway. That alone should say something, but there is also the fact that Natsu is ranked higher on this list than Laxus and while Natsu battled Tempester for several episodes with no headway earlier Laxus took him out in about ten seconds clearly showing Laxus' superiority. I will also note that when Natsu is serious, what power does he use? Oh yeah, Laxus' lightning! Enough said.

How the hell is Laxus Dreyar the guy who defeated Jura, Raven Rail's elite, Made more damage at Hades than whole team natsu, and defeated Tempesta with his body full of anti magic particles, Under natsu? He always beats him with one attack! And the only reason Laxus dindt took over Fairy Tail and was defeated is because he fighted Mystogan, Erza,Gajeel (who saved natsu twice and said the fight was a draw) did the Thunder Palace which must use a lot of magic along with Fairy Law, and natsu. Natsu fanboys/girls seem to forget ALL of that and say natsu is the strongest because he defeats all of the bad guys but he always has help. Natsu himself said he was weaker in the fight against Hades! Natsu is NOT the strongest, just the main male character.

7 Jellal Fernandes Jellal Fernandes is a childhood friend of Erza Scarlet. When he lost his own memory, he was a Dark Mage who desperately sought to revive Zeref via the R-System. Jellal served as the main antagonist of the Tower of Heaven arc and is currently a member and co-founder of Crime Sorcière.

Half the crap I'm reading on here is wrong. Overall, (not playing favorites), he should rank just under Zeref and Mavis. Heavenly Body Magic is relatively as strong (if not stronger) than Dragon, God, or Demon Slayer Magic.

He single handedly took out Oracion Seis, something even Jura had issues doing (granted Jura wasn't as powerful at the time).

The manga shows that Jellal (under the cover of Mystogan) actually beat Jura (not being overcome by the Shared Link Magic) at the Grand Wizard Games.

As he progressed with his newfound guild Crime Sorcereis (or something of the sort), his power practically increased tenfold, if not more.

After all this evidence, I cannot understand why people still underestimate Jellal. His power rivals that of Makarov, and is far more powerful than 90% of the others on this list.

This is practically a list of favorites. People need to get their facts straight first. This poll wasn't called Top Ten Favorite...

Jellal is one of the strongest characters in the show. He's extremely strong, fast, and durable, and he has immense magical power. He created a Thought Projection, Siegrain, that managed to become both a member of the Magic Council AND a Wizard Saint. Creating a Thought Projection and sustaining it takes a lot of magical energy, and Jellal was still able to kick ass while having Siegrain doing other things. Plus, Jellal fought Midnight, Cobra, Angel, and Racer, at the same time, and won, with the only damage to him being self-inflicted. This seems to be more of a favorites list than anything else, because there is no way that Natsu is as strong as Erza, Mavis, Gildarts, Jellal, Makarov, Laxus, Acnologia, Hades, Mirajane, your, Mystogan, Bluenote, Igneel, Mystogan, Jura, Minerva, Warrod, or Ultear.

To be honest, I believe that Jellal is indeed one of the most powerful mage in Fairy Tail as a antagonist and a supporting character. Not like I have a hate on Natsu but he should not be on the 2nd place. It should be Mavis followed by Precht or other powerful mages.

Jellal is a powerful and a great antagonist. He is a member of the Ten Wizard Saints back then and may still is if he was not taken as a criminal. Remember people, Jellal was the only antagonist in the anime who killed a somewhat important character in his arc. He killed Simon in one shot. If this does not explain anything and you are still convinced that Narsu or Gray is greater than him then I'm afraid that you are being biased on them.

Yes, Natsu defeated him but it was only because of a power up, a booster. If they fight seriously with out boosters then Jellal would beat him.

I also believe that he and Lacus are on par on strength and magic

To be honest, Jellal is by far one of the strongest mages in the show. The only reason why he lost to natsu was because natsu ate the etherion crystal which gave him so much more power and strength. When he vs Jura, he only lost because of Ultear, if he actually used that spell we all know he would've won. Another thing is that whenever jellal is fighting you can kind of tell that he holds back, in which this may be because he still feels guilty about the past, plus Hiro Mashima to be honest doesn't give him enough opportunities to fight and show that strength. When fighting he tries not to kill anyone given the fact that he feels guilty for killing Simon. However jellal can casts hundreds of powerful spells and as well as spells from all elements and was a wizard saint in the past proving that he's extremely powerful

8 Erza Scarlet Erza Scarlet is an S-Class Mage from the infamous magic guild Fairy Tail. Erza starts off as a lone wolf and stays loyal to following the rules. As the story develops Erza changes into loving mage strong and independent. As her terrible past haunts her she ignores her Nakama's calls that they want help. ...read more.

Erza's signature form of Magic, is a type of Magic that allows her to swap weapons, armor and clothes at will. Her particular form of Requip is called The Knight. She is noted for her ability to requip extremely fast and is the only sword Mage known to be capable of swapping weapons and armors while fighting, something which made her well known throughout the Kingdom of Fiore and Magnolia Town, earning her the epithet "Titania" which means "queen of fairies". Although there are some mages more stronger than her, she is believed to be one of the most powerful mages in Fairy Tail. She wouldn't be an S Class Mage if she isn't deserving.

Alright, I don't really know where Natsu should rank but he is most definitely NOT stronger that Erza. Sure, he SEEMS stronger sometimes, but you must notice that he's the main character, and had some non-permanent tricks up his sleeves, this making him seem stronger.

Though Erza may not be the strongest, and also had acknowleding Natsu to had potential to be the strongest, people tender to ignore the 'potential' part of that.

No, he is not the strongest. Sure, he is strong. Incredibly so, even. But in all honestly, Erza is in a completely different level. She's a monster. Say; Fighting with all your senses robbed and pain level heightened to the max against a more than capable wizard and still win. Or fighting 100 monsters in which one of them not even the 10 saints (in other words, Master) could win against. Or stopping Jupiter. You get my point.

To summarize; Natsu can't beat Erza. For now.

I have to agree with all the placements EXCEPT Jellal's. Yes, when Erza fought him in the tower of heaven arc, she had a hard time. However, she has grown. I am also aware Jellal beat the oracion seis (spelling? ), however they were in a weakened state. Also, if he could use magic blasts only to defeat them, why couldn't Erza use her swords? It was shown that Erza did give Jellal some trouble with her attacks during their fight, and, again, Erza has grown and now generally requips into more armors, so I believe she could beat him. Some may use his forbidden abyss break spell in his defense, however Erza could stop the JUPITER CANNON with her adamantine armor, so I believe she could easily counter this spell. I think Erza should at least be in seventh place. I would debate on wether she's stronger than Laxus or not, but I'm too lazy.

Considering Erza's dream at the Tower of Heaven I would say that Erza should be considered as a very power wizard. That dream was more like a vision of what would have become if Erza did loss her life in that episode. So if that dream really was a vision of what might have been then Erza is at the level of the Ten Saint Wizards proving her to be worthy of the name Titania. I believe that Erza is stronger than Natsu but when she said that Natsu would surpass her I believe that if Natsu had a proper motivation he could possible over power her. Though at his present state he could easily be over powered by Erza because of the fact he does well in the category of strength but lacks in the category of intelligence.

9 Makarov Dreyar

The first should be Zerref, the second should be Mavis, the third should be Acnologia, and the fourth should be either Precht or Makarov. The reason why I can't decide which one should be fourth is because when Makarov and Precht fought, the only thing that kept Makarov from destroying all of grimoire heart in one move was Precht also having an end all be all move. At the moment I'd say Makarov should be number 4 and Precht should be Number 5. At number 6 should be Gildarts, number 7 Jellal, number 8 Laxus, number 9 Erza (you could switch those two around easily because Erza has armor that counteracts laxus's lightning armor), and at number 10 should be Mira Jane (although she could also take Erza's or Laxus's spot. It's another Precht VS Makarov Situation.)

Keep in mind that there is a 99% chance that Natsu, Grey, Gajeel, Wendy, and Lucy will probably surpass most of the people on this list but as of right now, they aren't as strong as these other people.

I can't believe how Makarov-sama is at 8th place shouldn't he be at least next to acnologia Well afterall he's the fairytail master and he's one of the ten wizard saints even powerful mages such as the SS-class wizard Gildarts Clive, S-class wizards Laxus Dreyar & Erza Scarlet and even the 5th strongest Ten Wizards Saints. (According to Lamia Scale's master) are afraid of him. And he was also able to stop acnologia for a short period of time. (I guess he could have stopped acnologia if he weren't that injured at tenroujima) and afterall he uses fairy law one of fairytail's 3 greatest magic

Makarov is the Master of Fairy Tail. A member of the Ten Wizard Saints, Makarov has a wide array of magic available to him, and even immensely powerful mages like Gildarts Clive, Laxus Dreyar, Erza Scarlet, and Jura Neekis are afraid of him.

I think makarov is stronger than gildarts! Beacause makarov defeated some powerful mages and maybe some fellow wizard saint (jose porla).and he can transform into giant or cast some magical spell and curses Makarov don't deserved this.. He should get along with the top 5!

10 Hades

Hades easily overpowered Makarov, Fairy tail's strongest team, and laxus. He wields insanely powerful lost magic and is the leader of the most powerful dark guild in Fiore. He is clearly stronger than Erza, Laxus and Natsu, as the only reason he was defeated was because his source of power was destroyed and fairy tail's source of power returned.

Alright then here is what a lot of people forget about Hades. One is that he has unlimited magic power when he had his heart. Two If it wasn't for his heart being destroyed then he would have defeated Fairy Tail. And 3 is that it took all of Fairy Tail's Main cast to defeat him.

He is the 2nd master of Fairy Tail. Mavis woudn't pick him as the next master if he isn't just nothing. We all know that he easily defeated Makarov and he even created demons or monsters out of rocks! Although he was killed by Zeref, his powers will still be remembered by many.

Reading some of these comments. Defeated makarov quite easily, defeated makarov with relative ease? Laugh out loud what a lie. The guy completely anihilated makarov, he didn't stand the tiniest bit of a chance. It wouldve taken a small army of Makarovs to take him down, that's how ridiculously op this guy is

The Contenders
11 Mirajane Strauss Mirajane Strauss is the elder sister of Lisanna and Elfman, who possesses “Take-Over” magic, which allows her to take shape of animals, other wizards, or her “Satan Soul” forms. Mirajane is also an S-Class wizard who was rivals with Erza Scarlet when they were both young, often challenging her ...read more.

As said before, Mirajane is an extremely powerful Mage who hasn't shown the full extent of her abilities. On top of that we have Macro, a curse which can control other entities, living or dead, by ordering them around. Another factor to my vote is that she hasn't been seen going all out in a fight because, as she said, she can't fight to the fullest when other people are around. Without a doubt, I find her to be more powerful than Erza, who has received more screen time and character development, as well as more feats to back up her plot armor. We really haven't seen that much from Mira yet, but that is just because she hasn't had enough character development or feats, even though she could easily surpass Erza in terms of power and
-don't mind me saying- intelligence. Mira is an amazing character with so much talent, having had a difficult life and traumatic experiences. She is constantly underrated, but has so much potential and power at her disposal. She's undoubtedly one of the ...more

Mirajane and Erza are equally good. But I think she can outshine Erza. If they fought, they might be a draw, or maybe Mira would win. Come on, Erza's Magic doesn't allow her to hurt Mira but Mira can kick the hell out of Erza's ass! Not even Erza's, Laxus', Gildarts', etc. magic is forbidden while Mirajane's magic is! It was mentioned that she destroyed a city like it was nothing. She also has spells that use lightning, water, and other more. She also has the potential to surpass Gildarts and Laxus. I've read the recent manga chapter about Mirajane being able to possess the curse Macro. It says that with Macro, you can control or manipulate living creatures or even corpses. Therefore, she can effortlessly ask Erza, Laxus, Gildarts, or even the most powerful mage to kill themselves if she wants to. I also think she should be awarded as one of the Ten Wizard Saints because she has a massive amount of magic power that isn't normal for mages. Seriously, Mirajane is so underrated. Hiro ...more

For me, Mirajane is really powerful as compared to the other mages, especially to her rival Erza. Though they said that Erza is the strongest female wizard of Fairy Tail, we can't tell if Erza really is the strongest female mage of Fairy Tail or If Mirajane could withstand her title since, as she have said, She is holding back her powers if she knows that someone is watching her or when a comrade is nearby. These informations made me think that she really is a great wizard:
1. Her siblings have shown us many different forms of their magic (Beast Soul and Animal Soul) while she had only shown 2 of her own.
2. She has a forbidden magic which is THE DEMON HALPHAS ( which I didn't include in number 1 because it is forbidden ), while Gildarts and Erza doesn't have that thing classified as "Forbidden" magic.
3. She is still improving, as shown in her fight with Sayla when she absorbed the demon's curse called Macro (though I still don't know if she could really use it anytime ...more

Okay, so Erza may be more versatile and more active, but when it comes to raw power Mira will definitely win. She should be way farther up at the top! She doesn't fight often and hardly at full strength and she is still just as powerful as Erza, if not more powerful. She may not surpass Gildarts but she definitely surpasses Laxus and Natsu. (And of course she's not as powerful as Acnologia...Acnologia's on a whole 'nother level from Fairy Tail) So let's get her above Natsu and right under Zeref, Gildarts, Mavis, and Makarov!

12 Igneel

I think Igneel should be a lot higher on this list. First of all, he is Natsu's father. If Natsu is already fourth then Igneel should be third or something. Second, he is a dragon, and dragons are very powerful what more do you want? Although Acnologia half killed him, it is possible that Igneel was taken off guard and was unprepared. If Igneel did not hold back and attacked Acnologia when he was off guard Igneel could have killed Acnologia.

"Igneel is the king of fire dragons, He is below Mira on this list when I made this post. Why? Igneel even ripped off Acnalogia's arm for goodness sake, but Igneel did lose, that's because he was half-dead. For someone who didn't have a soul that's a pretty fine accomplishment, Makarov's arm got burned by atlas Flame. ATLAS FLAME! Who claimed to be beaten by Igneel many times. Even Erza is higher on this list, Igneel is one of the most kind, powerful dragons that was ever in the anime."

During the Tartaros arc he fought Acnologia after not having fought for serveral centuries, he also had his soul ripped from him by Acnologia and was fighting under half strength yet he still ripped of Acnologia's arm. In his prime he defeated END (Etherias Natsu Dragneel and strongest demon in the book of Zeref) but did not deliver the finishing blow. Remember that Zeref created the books to kill him so END should be on the same level as Zeref and Igneel still won.

Whoa whoa. If you're gonna put dragons on here than just let them take all the top spots, especially the KING of the fire dragons. Igneel should be number two. He was the closest to beating Acnologia. Had he not been dormant for so long he might have had a better chance. He needs to be at number 2. The other characters couldn't beat him if they tried. It's insulting for him to be so low on this list. Definitely #2

13 Gajeel Redfox Gajeel Redfox is a fictional character from the anime Fairy Tail. He is the Iron Dragon Slayer. He was an antagonist in his first appearance, fighting main character Natsu Dragneel. He later ended up turning to Fairy Tail's side, and most commonly fights alongside Levy McGarden and Panther-Lily.

Like Natsu, Gajeel was taught by a dragon to manipulate a particular element into his fighting style: in Gajeel's case, the dragon Metalicana taught him how to use Iron Dragon Slayer Magic. However, as the name implies, his Dragon Slayer Magic deals with iron instead of fire. Just as Natsu eats fire to regain his strength, so can Gajeel eat iron to regain his own. His teeth and jaw muscles are apparently powerful enough to gnaw through solid metal with ease, and he can devour even the Magic-canceling metal of the Dorma Anim. Gajeel's Magic deals with producing multi-sized iron rods as well as changing parts of his body into steel.

Gajeel has not only taught his younger brother (Rouge) how to use shadow dragon slayer magic, but he can also use it himself. Gajeel in his Iron-Shadow Mode is as fast as Laxus and can endure most physical attacks, he can also phase into shadows giving him another advantage in both attack and defense. In addition, Gajeel can also harden his iron into steel by eating carbon

I love Gajeel and I guess he would be a lot of stronger than Natsu or so if he would have the second origin
Gray, Natsu, Wendy, Juvia etc. did all gain the second origin with the help of Ultear.
However Gajeel and for example Laxus didn't get it (... But I guess Laxus has it already... Or he doesn't need it... )
And I guess with the second origin he would be stronger than he is now

What, this low. Gajeel is one of the strongest wizards in fairytale. He can easily win against Gray in a fight. He almost beat Natsu when they first met. Gajeel deserves to be 13th. He is such a underrated character. Come on people!

14 Gray Fullbuster Gray Fullbuster a fairytail wizard is a kind sensitive person which can be mainly found in underwear or fighting a guildmate / friend brother Natsu Dragneel (which I am supersede dint make this list) anyway Gray has a habit of stripping which he found while training with his now unfortunately dead master ...read more.

He was included in the Top 10 because he is now an Ice Devil Slayer. Therefore, he is now a match for Natsu Dragneel. And, he eats ice too! He also defeated Rufus easily. Before he got his Ice Devil Slayer Magic, we already know that he is a mastered-mage of Ice-Make Magic. So yeah, I thought he is just some normal mage but now he possesses The Ice Devil Slayer Magic which Silver gave him. From what I know, it's one of the rarest magic in Fairy Tail and its ice doesn't melt easily.

Creation magic = unlimited potential, badass without dragon or bloodline or bull plot power. Main character with side character fights but even so cool personality. Always caring about others (esp Erza, Lucy and Natsu) and when he is serious he can do anything. Freeze flames, create walls of ice, freeze stuff or shield people faster than anything, fight bare handed endure tons of beating and even yes, even talk back to Erza :). Too bad he is mostly used as a comical character.

Gray is one of the strongest characters in the manga/anime his ice make magic gives him the freedom to adapt to any scenario. Due to his tragic back story he has a drive to become stronger and his love for his friends gives him the motivation to never give up in spite of the odds. And depending on whether or not you are up to date with the manga you will see him go through a major power boost.

I don't see how characters like Natsu, Erza and Mirajane are above him when he can beat them in a fight (as of now). Ice-Make = Infinite potential. Ice Devil Slaying magic will beat Dragon slaying magic (God slaying magic can). He can freeze people and structures INSTANTLY...

This list is obviously broken... Like the fanbase.

15 Ultear Milkovich

Many forget about her. I personally believe she is top probably third strongest behind mavis & zeref. Her power is immense. As a child she had SO MUCH magic power that she became ill because of it. But rather than removing the overflowing magic power that her mother opted to do, researchers ENHANCED her magic at a very young age which made her even STRONGER. She could probably take on natsu or whoever grown if she was like 5.. Moreover she has many versatile abilities, aside from having her mothers' (who was considered as strong as a wizard saint) Ice make magic, she has countless other magics - name Time magic. She was taught this magic by Hades, who probably believed she would be the only one to be able to utilize it. She was the sole reason everyone was able to beat the dragons.

And here's Ultear! Ultear is the founder of Crime Sorciere, along with Meredy, as well as the eldest of the Seven Kin of Purgatory. She's the daughter of your, Gray's teacher, someone who many said to be at the level of a Wizard Saint, like Jellal and Jura. She has Arc of Time, a powerful Lost Magic, and Ice-Make skills as great as her mother. She actually had so much magic power as a child, not only was all the magic power was making her sick, she was considered for the Oracion Seis but rejected due to having so much magic that the Six Prayers spell wouldn't work! She's definitely at Wizard Saint level.

She should be much higher than #18. She should at least be #8 in my opinion. She has IMMENSE magic power, enough to give her a fever at such a young age! And then it was INCREASED FURTHER. She uses Time arc, which controls the time of both organic and inorganic objects. It is a pretty darn useful and powerful form of lost magic. Also her ice-make magic is also quite impressive. She is the leader of the Seven Kin and is daughter of your, whose Ice-make magic put her at wizard saint! Not to mention she saved countless people during the GMG. She is with no doubt, one of the strongest wizards in Fairy Tail.

She only lost to Gray because she found out the truth behind her mother's actions and got emotional. Otherwise Ultear would have won, though I have to admit that Gray will be stronger than her by the end of the series because :
1 ) He 's one of the protagonists.
2 ) Ultear has turned into an old woman.
Nevertheless, as for now, if she hadn't turned into an old lady she would be more powerful than Gray. Her Lost Magic MANIPULATES TIME enough said.

16 Jura Neekis

I can't believe how people think Jura Neekis should at least be on top 10 just because he's one of the "Ten Wizards Saints" oh come on Jura said himself that he's the weakest of the ten wizard saints. And Laxus the S-Class Wizard beat Jura one of the "Ten Wizards Saints" my my.. and people think he deserve to be on top 10 because he's one of the ten wizard saints

Even if Gray is now an Ice Devil Slayer, Jura's abilities are much more superior than Gray's, Jura is one of the most powerful wizards in the anime, not the most powerful but he deserves at least in the top tens.

Laugh out loud, Jura is in 15? Seriously? He must be in Top 10 or whatever, because he is one of the Ten Saints!? Come on people! Vote the correct one who is the strongest!

Just because he is a saint doesn't mean he must be top ten... If that were the case then all ten saints would be in top ten... He shouldn't be at 15 but most likely not top 10

17 God Serena

How is he 20th? He's the strongest of the Four Gods Of Ishgar and the Ten Wizard Saints. Lamia Scale's master said that the Four Gods Of Ishgar (top four members of the Ten Wizard Saints) were hardly even human they were that strong. Anyway Zeref wouldn't have made him one of the Spriggan 12 if he was really weaker than some of the people he's ranked under. He's certainly on a whole other level compared to Jura who is the 5th most powerful of the Ten Wizard Saints. We'll see more of his power and I'm very excited for when they animate him using his powers as I believe he'll be a very interesting character!

What God Serena is in lower place. He is the first ranking wizard saint and he must be on top it is obvious his name contains God. Also he knows different dragon slayer magics.

It's a shame to only see such small glimpse of a really great character. We haven't seen much of him. Probably, just probably, hiro's biggest mistake to only show small appearance of him in such an incredible series.

Okay god Serena should be placed in like a twelve way tie in fourth place with all the other Spriggian twelve. His power could wipe out a nation. Much more poweful than makarov or laxus, the only person in fairytail that isn't a ghost who could take him on and possibly live is Gildarts because of his crash magic

18 Mard Geer

Mard Greer needs to be higher. Gajeel and Mirajane would get beat into the ground and I don't know how Mystogan would fare against him. I mean, the demon went head to head with the celestial spirit King! Even with the ice devil slaying powers from Silver, he still took out Gray. He should be higher

He was strongest demon besides END, So that would put him above Erza for fact. Even with her new powers dragon wise, Mard is stronger, Maybe weaker than a full powered Laxus and Gildarts, so I would so he is 5th.

Mard Geer is one of the strongest demons ever created by Zeref (number one on the list), second only to Acnologia (number three on the list) and he required a team-up of others on the list to defeat.

Mard Geer Tartarus is the second most powerful person in tartarus, under E.N.D. (Etherious Natsu Dragneel), he is the king of the Underworld. +Jackal slaughtered the entire Magic Council (ERA) and compare Jackal to Mard Geer, Jackal is nothing!

19 August

I'm assuming the low rank is a result of him not appearing in the anime yet. Nevertheless, August is by far one of the strongest mages in the entire series. Personally, I'd rank him fourth (probably) but he still might stand a chance against the top 3 in a battle.

He almost destroyed all of fiore. He would have if he hadn't seen his mother and stopped.

Guys we really don't know his potential but the way makarov describes him...I'm guessing he's gonna be a really big threat to fairytail

Why is he under Ultear? He's like one of the strongest wizards ever.

20 Kagura Mikazuchi

Kagura's fighting style is all about the use of her sword. she can evenly match erza in a sword fight and can even destroy Erza's adamantium armor (which was able to defend against jupiter although it get destroyed in the process) all while her sword is still sheathed. when she unsheathed her sword she able to destroy lines of large buildings in magnolia with just one swing. who knows how much her power goes when her sword is unsheathed? Erza and kagura is not very far in terms of skill and power. but I would say erza is only 3-5% stronger than kagura as kagura was able to beat the crap out of erza in just 2 minutes, with out damage, and while her sword is still sheathed which was never before seen. and with her gravity magic even stronger than libra, a golden celestial spirit, she is with out a doubt one of the most powerful mages in the fairy tail series.

Actually when some other wizards in other guilds Get their second Origin they can totally defeat Fairy tail but I'm not telling that fairy tail is Weak but there are some mages in other guilds that can beat them like Kagura. Remember she can control the gravity and much stronger than Libra.

As Far the story goes Kagura Mikzuchi is the Strongest Swordswoman She can fight Without using magics but using his Fighting skills

For me She must belong in the top 15 strongest mages

A Unsheathed sword that can cut a strong defense armor from erza is not a small thing. She is extraordinary in terms of speed and strength she can easily destroy minerva if she didn't overwhelm her anger. She deserves to be in top 15

Kagura mikazuchi is the strongest sword woman and the leader of the mermaid hill she can defeat Ezra without using any magic.

21 Wendy Marvell

Wendy is only 13 years old and she has unlocked dragon force and was able to defeat Ezel, if that's not impressive, I don't know what is. She also has been an extremely helpful asset to team Natsu with her healing and support magic. She has become so much stronger, she was powerful before but she lacked confidence and often fainted after casting spells. Wendy has proven everyone wrong who thought she was weak or useless.

Wendy's 12 years old, guys. And she can use dragon force. I bet you that Natsu wasn't anywhere near as strong when he was twelve. Not only is she really physically strong, but she has a load of magic power as well. Wendy's only so low down because of her age, but if she was Natsu's age she would definitely be higher than him.

Wendy is a Dragon Slayer. She could be as strong as Natsu or Gajeel one day. Her power surely over ranks Lucy and she should be placed higher. Wendy is capable of healing and increasing the power of others. She is amazingly strong for only being 12 so imagine how powerful she'll be when she's older.

I agree Wendy learned drago force at such a young age ( well the same age as me 12 ), and natsu learned it at age?. She can heal other and no one else can do that except porlyusica but she's basically Grandeeney. Wendy is smart cool and cute and if Hiro Mashima worked and noticed her more she could had been stronger than everyone.

22 Eileen Belserion

Irene is the strongest woman in the 12 along with the strongest male member August. She should be higher. She stood up against Acnologia and that's an incredible feat!

After the final season of fairy tail comes out, she and August will definitely be in the top 5. She invented dragon slayer magic.

To be fair this list was made long before she came around, so...that explains how underrated she is

She went Solo against Acnologia and survived whats more to say!

23 Ur

Your, you are my hero. You inspire me every day with your sacrafice. I also thought it was pretty funny when... well, I will give you a hint: "Gray, your cloths! " That never gets old. your, if you could see this, you would smile. I know it. You were a great teacher, ice and all. My dad said that ice was weak. All I could think of is if ice is so weak, how could your defeat Deliora with the spell... well, I'm not even going to say it. Don't you forget that what shaped a lot of the Fairy Tail guild is you. The fans of Fairy Tail will understand this, and I hope that Gray and Leon will too.
-#1 fan, TaurusZodiac101

Ultear's mother, and the woman who taught Gray and Lyon all of their Magic, your was immensely powerful. Some even saw her as being capable of becoming one of the Ten Wizard Saints. Your had many powerful Ice-Make spells, which she passed down to Ultear. As a last resort, she could even use the Iced Shell.

Okay. Ultear's mother, Gray's teacher, and they're all ahead of her. Seriously...

She was close to becoming one of the ten wizard saints though...

24 Juvia Lockser Juvia Lockser is a Fairy Tail Mage . When Juvia was young she was abandoned by her parents because she was followed by the rain . Juvia lived in a orphanage but she never felt at home there she was mistreated by the children there because she was different from them,she was a Mage she had blue hair ...read more.

Juvia is an extremely skilled user of Water Magic. It allows her to produce, control, and manipulate water. She can use the water in a variety of different ways, such as producing blades of water that can even slice through solid rock and metal, or forming waves of tremendous power and force to damage her opponents, or even trapping opponents in mini-prisons made of her water. Juvia also has the ability to turn into water, seemingly without thought, thus allowing both physical and magical attacks to pass through her without harming her.

Why is Juvia so underestimated? The only reason that people don't think she deserves to be higher is because there are barely any one-on-one fights of her. The only one-on-one fights that I recall are the fight with Meredy, an opponent even ERZA herself was unable to defeat and the fight with the celestial spirit, Aries. She incredibly defeated both of them Juvia-style, of course, and fought well. In my opinion, she could be higher than Gray if it wasn't for the Gray-sama thing.

Juvia deserves more credit than what is given to her. I mean, she is liteerally unstoppable when she gets focused, and tthe only reason she could ever be defeated is because of her emotions! Exibit A: She falls in love with Gray... defeat. Exhibit B: She loved her guildmates enough to stop herself from hurting Lucy, Exhibit C: The only reason Meredy is still around is because she understood the hurt she felt.

If Juvia became an antagonist, she would literally be unstoppable, especially with magic like her Water Body.

Case Closed.

Oof, come on, what are you guys babies? Its not a "top 10 favorites" list or something, just get real for a while. Juvia Lockser, okay, what is she even doing here? (obviously stalking Gray to be honest).
Her element or magic is water, duh, it's nothing in front of others. I basically think she is weaker than Lucy, Loke, Wendy, Chelia..yeah even the kids.
She stands on the same level as Levi, both blue haired dorks chasing awesome guys. At least Levi's looks are acceptable, than here comes our water mage, totally creepy with frizzy hair and blank eyes. Not to mention her 'white' skin tone. She's all about impressing Gray n random crap.
She doesn't deserve to be in this list AT ALL, where LEGENDS like your, Kagura and other powerful wizards like Rogue, Sting and Wendy are below her. Geez, it doesn't make any sense.
Everybody's commenting here like "She's extremely powerful" and "She's underrated" blah blah blah. But just think for a while, she never came up with any good ...more

25 Warrod Sequen

Even though Warrod is the 4th Wizard Saint, he himself stated that it is just a title and that he wields no powerful offensive capabilities.

I don't more of Warrod, but I think he's strong because it is clearly stated that he was the one of the founder of the Fairytail's guil.
