Top 10 Strongest Fairy Tail Guild Members

From fire-breathing Dragon Slayers to mages with incredible transformations, these wizards always find a way to amaze (and occasionally wreak a bit of havoc). The Fairy Tail guild is stacked with powerful members, but some stand tall above the rest.

Who rises to the top? Who throws down with enough magical muscle to make enemies tremble? You know these mages have your back in a tight spot, but have you thought about how they rank against each other?
The Top Ten
1 Gildarts Clive

First of all, let me address something. Makarov said during the GMG that Jura is around the same strength as Gildarts. Yet in the MPF, he got around 8000 while Cana got 9999, using Fairy Glitter. Cana used the exact same move against Bluenote, yet it had no effect. Gildarts beat Bluenote, so he surpasses Cana, surpassing Jura. And since Jura was supposedly the strongest human wizard in Magnolia (stronger than Makarov), he is considered the strongest in the continent. (Gildarts>Bluenote>Cana>Jura>Makarov).

He can obliterate a black hole (Blue Note's black hole), beat Natsu on any day, and can destroy mountains in a single punch. It's safe to say he's stronger than most Fairy Tail members, considering how many there are and how many of them are weak, like Nab.

2 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 has the power to destroy Zeref, as he is (END) after all. (spoiler) He literally melts anything in his vicinity, especially after the year he went off to train. He can take down armies on his own and also most of the Spriggan 12 on his own.

Natsu may appear that he can't beat some people from the guild, but he dares not to because they are his friends and family. He can go ballistic on anyone with the powers of emotions to boost his power. Of course, the twin dragons were nothing to Natsu. Their powers were half-baked compared to Natsu alone. Gajeel can also take down the twin dragons by himself.

Gildarts sure is strong, but it's difficult to determine who is stronger when he's a nomadic mage who is never there to help Fairy Tail during their many encounters with Dark Guilds. Natsu was the one taking them down. Natsu has the power to defeat Gildarts but can't since he was like a father figure to him when Igneel "vanished." Natsu has what it takes to be the best, and if not now, then perhaps sooner or later.

3 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

She is the strongest female in Fairy Tail. I don't know why Natsu is ahead of her. I mean, she scares Natsu and Gray without even doing anything. Plus, when she defeated 100 monsters, it is said that the S Class monster is so powerful that even a 10 Wizard Saint can't defeat it, yet she defeated all 100 even with those injuries.

Also, when Mira said that they should defeat Aria (in Phantom Lord) before he even opens his eyes, but when Aria faced off Erza, he opened his eyes because he knew how powerful she is. But due to the fact that Erza is angry at that time, she defeated him in just like 20 seconds, maybe?

4 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

Laxus should be third on the list. However, the thought that he is stronger than Natsu can be doubted due to Natsu's ability to become stronger during a fight. Natsu may have drawn with him during their first fight, but even Makarov stated that if Natsu were to fight seriously, even Laxus wouldn't stand a chance. This also applies to the fact that Natsu has become almighty after the second time skip.

Laxus, however, is easily stronger than Erza, due to the fact she wasn't able to land a blow on him during their fight. Also, Erza admits Laxus's strength is beyond hers, and his feats are easily on par with the Wizard Saints, if not beyond.

5 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

Mirajane usually only loses due to plot requirements or is relegated to let the main characters shine. While it might only be a fleeting line, even Gray (after he acquired Ice Devil-Slaying magic) admitted during their confrontation with Wahl's Machine clones that Mirajane has no weaknesses (Chapter 459, Pg 14). Besides, Mirajane is a very versatile combatant, possessing both close and long-range battle abilities.

Mirajane can beat Natsu, Laxus, Erza, or even Gildarts. If she uses her Macro, she can control everyone if she wants to and make them do whatever she wants. So, she belongs in second place next to Mavis. Although she can control Mavis, she wouldn't be able to defeat Mavis.

6 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

The fact of the matter is, Gray has always been slightly better than Natsu in almost every way, excluding Natsu's practically infinite magical reserves and close-quarters combat skills.

He has always been smarter, quicker, and more durable by a slight margin, and Natsu even has trouble melting through Gray's ice. Gray thinks about what he needs to do in order to beat his opponent, and since he knows more than enough about Natsu, he could skip that fairly lengthy process immediately.

Then Gray got Devil Slaying magic.

There is no way that Devil Slaying magic is weaker than Dragon Slaying magic. For example, Zancrow had God Slaying magic. Natsu couldn't even hurt him until Mashima used the plot armor card.

If he couldn't hurt a God Slayer, then he would never even land a scratch on a Devil Slayer. Gray is now even stronger, faster, and more durable. He now has a significant boost to his magic, and his ice is now so cold that Natsu will never be able to melt it.

If he has always been slightly ahead of Natsu beforehand, he is definitely on Laxus's level of strength now. The guy who one-shot Natsu, for the record.

In short, how Gray is below Erza, Mirajane, and Natsu is a crime. Gildarts I understand, Laxus, debatable, but Natsu, Erza, and Mirajane? No. Simply not true.

7 Makarov Dreyar

He should be number 1 or number 2 at least. I still haven't watched all of Fairy Tail. I'm kind of new to anime, and I really like it, but Makarov is definitely one of the strongest, at least in my opinion. I'm on episode 54.

He just is the strongest. Nobody can beat him. Not even Gildarts.

Dude, he's the guild master... Do I have to say more?

8 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.

Mavis should be higher. Founder and master of the famous Fairy Tail out of the top 10?! Even if holding the title of first master and founder isn't enough, this still doesn't sound right at all. She created the four secret and powerful spells of Fairy Tail. She used a powerful spell and pretty much created Fairy Law, right after she learned how to use powerful offensive magic from Zeref. Sadly, it was Black Magic, in order to save her dear friend Yuri even after he backstabbed her and chose treasure.

She survived on Tenroujima alone for 7 years after the Guild attack, and because of that, she has become the most well-known and successful military war tactician to ever exist, giving her the nickname, "Fairy Tactician." She helped win the final competition of the Grand Magic Games with her tactics to earn them points in the end.

How can you deny this pretty girl a top 10 spot? She brought me to tears, man. Fairy Tail, in general, brings me to happy/sad tears. Love it. She definitely needs to be higher than most of these guild members though.

9 Mystogan

First of all, this kid is Jellal's counterpart, and Jellal was a Wizard Saint, on the council, and everything. He was also considered to be in the top three of the Fairy Tail guild, against Laxus. He wiped out all of those Phantom Lord guild members himself. In the fight with Laxus, he only left because his face had been revealed, and Laxus himself said that only Mystogan could compare to him as the strongest wizard in Fairy Tail, not even Erza. He's also the king of Edolas, and even though he lost his powers because of the way Edolas is, he could kick butt if he had his magic. They never really showed Mystogan's true potential in the show, though, and they could have because he had a lot of things to him that could have made him much stronger.

10 Lucy Heartfilia Lucy Heartfilia is a wizard in the guild, Fairy Tail. Her magic is called celestial spirit magic which allows her to summon spirits from another world. She currently possesses fifteen celestial keys, which is an extraordinary number for a celestial mage. She gets along best with Team Natsu, containing... read more

Lucy is definitely strong, regardless of her physical strength. She is one of the strongest mages who can summon Celestial Spirits. Sure, all her spirits do most of the work, but their strengths depend on the magical ability of the user. She is able to summon three spirits at once and, therefore, able to bring out the Celestial Spirit King, who can also drain her power. Celestial Spirits can summon themselves at the cost of the user's power. So, actually, they can't just summon themselves at will because they require a user who is capable of handling the summons.

Her strength physically isn't as good as others, but as a mage, you don't need physical strength as much. So, of course, her spirits do the work, just as other mages use their spells to do their own work. It's because they're powerful enough to cast powerful magic. Lucy is a powerful mage who should not be looked down upon because of her physical strength.

The Contenders
11 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

I don't get why some people keep saying "Juvia is the most powerful, even Erza is scared of her." First of all, Erza is not scared. She is just surprised to see Juvia like that. Secondly, Erza is 1000 times more powerful than Juvia. Erza can easily stomp Juvia with tremendous ease.

And why do people keep comparing Juvia and Lucy? Yes, it's clear that Juvia is more powerful, but Lucy is both strong and kind, whereas Juvia is always mean to them. She cares only about Gray, not her friends. It's clear she is strong, but not stronger than the above characters and doesn't even deserve the 11th place because there are a lot more powerful characters below!

12 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.

Gajeel is very strong. He has unlocked Dragon Force and has his Steel and Iron Shadow Dragon mode. He should be higher than Gray. He is around Erza's strength but less than Natsu, Laxus, and Gildarts. Gray got Ice Devil Slayer Magic because his father happened to be kind enough to pass it on to him. However, Gajeel earned all of the modes he obtains to this day by sheer will and true power, aided by his newfound comradely spirit with the guild.

I am not saying Gray is not strong. He is incredibly strong, but he has not earned what he has gotten, whereas Gajeel has. Passing power onto someone is not as powerful as someone earning it through blood, sweat, and tears.

13 Freed Justine

If we look at raw magic, there is no doubt that Freed is the strongest in Fairy Tail (literally, without bias, one of the strongest in the entire anime). His rune power and Dark Écriture powers are beyond imagination. He can create runes not even Wizard Saints can pass, he can teleport instantly, and create spells just by saying them (wings, torture, pain, and even death) on top of his S-class level power itself.

It's a shame he isn't given the recognition he should, mainly because his role and position in Fairy Tail isn't central to the plot, so they "artificially" weaken him. Therefore, I would say he is one of the strongest, yet broken characters in Fairy Tail.

14 Cana Alberona

Cana is obviously stronger than some of these guys. I believe she's stronger than Laxus' bodyguards (Raijinshu) and other guild members. She pulled off Fairy Glitter on more than one occasion (spoiler), and she is also the daughter of Gildarts! (spoiler) Cana definitely has latent abilities.

Everyone in the guild is strong, but Mavis wants to give Cana her power more than once. Cana is amazingly strong, and even if she isn't at the very top, she is very close to it.

Cana is definitely stronger than Lucy. All Lucy can do is touch her toes with a key, say some words, and summon a clock with some talking animals. For real. CANA PULLED OFF FAIRY GLITTER! Do you understand how extremely difficult that is?! Nobody on this LIST could do that, except maybe Gildarts.

15 Wendy Marvell

I can't believe you missed her out! Wendy is a Sky Dragon Slayer, an extremely rare magic. She could go against the powerful Sky God Slayer Chelia and tie with relative ease. Besides, I believe Wendy could win against Chelia if there wasn't a time limit. Heck, Wendy can beat anybody if there wasn't a time limit, because she can keep on refilling her energy. So, even if her opponent's magic zeroes out, Wendy is fine and she can finish it. Besides, her offensive skills such as Sky Dragon's Breath, they aren't bad either. Wendy also has a good cat named Carla.

16 Hades

Personally, Hades should be fourth. He's the baddest villain you're ever going to see in Fairy Tail. Also, he's like the Broly of Fairy Tail, and we all know what happened to the Z fighters when they met Broly. It's about the same with Hades.

17 Bickslow

He can literally take over your soul, and yet he's the last one on this list? Hmm. Interesting.

18 Loke Loke is a recurring character in the anime show, Fairy Tail. He's a heroic, but flirtatious friend of Lucy.

Ah, we have the classic case of the "Aquarius is stronger than Loke" disease. Well, I'll fix that (but just annoy those who disagree). Okay, this is what would happen in a fight: so basically, Aquarius is winning BUT they are very even. Then Loke says something like "I will defeat you, and prove my undying love for Lucy! Love will prevail!" (or something cheesy like that that gets us all facepalming) and Loke will basically unleash some amazing new magic (they always do that in Fairy Tail) and win. Then, use some other weird pickup line such as "Hey Lucy! Are you sure your name isn't WiFi, because I'm picking up a connection!" ... I don't know. I'm gonna end this here, before it gets any weirder...

19 Levy McGarden
20 Warrod Sequen
21 Elfman Strauss

To be a man, you must be swift as a coursing river, with all the strength of a great typhoon.

He deserves at least #13. This guy is much more strong than given credit for.

One of the Take Over siblings. He is a real man and therefore should be number one on this list!

22 Panther Lily
23 Lisanna Strauss

Lisanna is actually strong, like seriously. She might not be as strong as Elfman or Mira, but that doesn't mean she's weak. When she fought Lucy in the one hundred year quest, Lucy's strongest attack wasn't even enough to bring her down properly. And so what if Natsu and Lisanna liked each other when they were kids? That shouldn't affect Lisanna's character! Lisanna's an underrated and awesome character, so there!

Her magic is a joke, and not even Natsu takes her seriously. But she is very kind, and we know the power of friendship is the strongest of all, right, Erza?

24 Alzack Connell

Took down a bunch of his friends in the battle royale!
