Best Characters In the Anime Fairy Tail

The Top Ten

1 Erza Scarlet

She is one of my favorites. Extremely strong, and is one of those characters who you think are all around serious, but have funny personalities and can get awkward at times which I love!

When I was on the early episodes of Fairy Tail, I seriously considered on dropping it. I honestly almost dropped too, if it weren't for Erza. I always knew 'someone really strong' was making an appearance, and when she actually did, my interest in this anime just increased 100x more. Later, I started loving others and this anime in general, I even read the manga, but if it weren't for her, I wouldn't have had really experienced Fairy Tail's greatness. Erza wouldn't be my favourite character, but I really really love her.

Erza is probably the best character in Fairy Tail with by far the most depth. She's the reason I got into the show. That may just be my opinion though.

Who's the most powerful female in Fairy Tail and practically the whole world? Who can re-equip at lightning speed into a hundred forms of armour? Who is a master swordsman and lancer, as well as a trained hand-to-hand combatist?

Erza Scarlet.

She's strong, brave and caring. She's pulled through a hell of a past. She's fought tooth-and-nail for Fairy Tail, and sacrificed just as much as anyone. She's the youngest wizard to ever become S-class. She gives the cheeky punks (Natsu and Gray) tough love and scares the hell out of everyone. She's a knight from legend, Queen Titania of the fairies.

And she's also number one on this list!

2 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.

This dude totally deserved the top. He had been through so much, first captured by his captors when he was young, got possessed, nearly died (and then got saved by Wendy), lost all his memories and got arrested for something that wasn't actually his fault 'cause he was being possessed. He totally deserves to sit back, relax and enjoy the sunset. But YET he devotes himself to destroying dark guilds and societies that threatens "peace" to atone for his 'sins' which technically wasn't even his fault. He never stops, no matter how much hate people have for him, no matter the risk of being arrested again, and no matter how much of his horrible past is brought up. I also like that even though Erza and Jellal obviously care for each other a lot, they know how to keep their distance and don't get all lovey-dovey. He totally shows how much he cares for Erza not through loud actions, be subtle ways. An amazing character with even more amazing character development. Totally deserves 1st.

Well even though jellal doesn't share much screen time in the anime I really feel his characters development was important and significant. I feel his character was not given due importance and he gets unnecessarily hate. He really is trying to atone himself but Hiro Mashima doesn't give thought to make his redemption arc fruitful. I am disappointed in the writer. He is a very underrated character and should be given more importance.

God, probably my favourite male character alongside Laxus. I love his way of thinking, his strength and character in general

I examine Jellal in four stages.

1. Child Jellal

He is cute, kind, gentle, selfless and courageous. He loves his friends and would never do anything to hurt them. However, he is hopeless and angry and bitter towards his captors. I like him and feel sorry for him.

2. Crazy Jellal (Ultear's manipulation-resolution of Tower of Heaven Arc)

His lack of hope for the future and the potential for achieving freedom and his anger and bitterness towards his captors give Ultear an advantage when she manipulates him. I also believe that as a child without training in the field of magic or magic abilities of his own he was more susceptible to magical manipulation. I desperately wanted him to triumph over his darker emotions and Ultear, but I do not blame him for breaking. He is now cruel, selfish and manipulative. I know he is crazy, but that does not excuse his behavior, especially as he gets older. He was good and he had a strong sense of justice. His perspective may ...more

3 Gray

He's honestly the only main character that had any decent development throughout the season and the only guy I could care about. Sure, Erza might have better fights, Lucy might be more smarter (which I disagree with), and Natsu might have cool power-ups, but Gray is the most unique and interesting. It saddens me on how underlooked his character is and how much Mashima just did not care for his character as much as he did with everyone else. Gray was super underused, and yet is the only one in his team who shows actual growth. While he might have a more typical dark shounen backstory, it works for his character. If there is any reason to watch Fairy Tail, Gray is a reason.

He has such a tragic story, but he keeps marching on! he has such beautiful magic (and awesome looks) and is really smart, despite his childish fights with Natsu. My personal favorite!

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.

In comparison to many other characters in FT Gray is one of the more unique ones. His magic is as Erza stated Beautiful and yet it is deadly and can be used for almost every situation he is in. His Ice devil slayer magic is an upgrade he deserved after all of the trolling Mashima and the studio animators put him through and his fights are always enjoyable to watch as he utilizes not only his brawn (which is over-looked all the damn time) but his brain too (Which too is over-looked). Gray also is probably the only person I have seen in the show who treats everyone equally, for example He supported Gajeel with his singing not from how he sounded but what message it delivered. Unfortunately this wonderful character is always under-estimated and over-looked for below average characters (I won't name names). I could go on forever but I wouldn't want to take up an entire page or two giving reasons why Gray is the best character so I will leave this here.

4 Natsu

I love NATSU. He is loyal, nice and loves his comrades so much. He cares for each and every one of them. He so funny. He is like BAE for life. I love his cute pink hair and his smile. He is funny and silly and more fun when he is with Lucy and happy. NATSU is my sempai and he loves to eat a lot lol. NATSU is tough and at the same time he is very nice and soft. I love his powers sometimes I wouldn't get surprised when his powers are so incredible. He always has a smile on his face. I barely see him cry like EVER. He always set goals and when someone in the guild is sad he always knows how to cheer them up like Lucy. NATSU is a hero to me. I love it when he works with his best friend happy. It's even funny when he and gray sometimes end up together and both get scared of erza lol. I just love NATSU. He is a great anime character and if he were real I would love to meet him. And get his autograph.

NATSU is bad my life everything! He is my hero my inspiration. My hero. He is so loyal and sexy and hot. DUH! Like he care about his comrades and always protect the ones he loves and the anime it self is so good and NATSU is just my favorite character so I don't know why he is number like the hell is this. He is funny, awesome, cute and amazing. He's awesome powers and he teaches me things that apply to real life. He never shows his weakness and helps others like lucy and happy. He has a soft side and a tough side as well. His quotes are pretty inspirational. His character is what makes him amazing.

Natsu may not be the smartest nor the most complex character Fairy Tail has made but he is in the end, he's a character that I can get behind. The degree to which he cares for his family is impressive and in the end, he's a breath of fresh air because unlike everyone else he has his baggage but he doesn't dwell on it as much as so many others do. He lives for the moment and does what he thinks is right despite his fears or mistakes. I can respect that. Plus if people as awesome as Erza are willing to put faith in him, I see no reason to doubt him either and just love him for who he is.

If we’re being honest Natsu is one of the most iconic anime characters that have ever lived, although he does need more character development, Natsu has got to be one of my favourite anime characters of all time.

5 Ultear

With Jellal (as a villain ofc) and Lyon, Ultear was one of the few villains in this show who had both brilliant background and development. She kinda represents the beginning of the series, where the arcs were more well thought, unlike the powerscale-dependant arcs and villains we're getting right now. Besides, she was an incredibly smart character as she was able to infiltrate successfully the Council and manipulated Jellal to get her job done. She was also not fully insane, as she actually cared for her comrades. Pity that she was in that terrible group of villains :'(

I feel like her life would have been better and she would have been more potentially strong. Just sucks that she misunderstood a lot of things. Felt sorry for her.

SPOILER WARNING

Beautiful story! Her relationship with Gray is very interesting, and when she died I seriously almost cried. I like how her and Jellal both accepted they did things wrong and formed Crime Sorciere, and I love when her and Meldey interact! I like the moment when they spice Jellal with hot peppers in the grand magic games

Beautiful character! Should be at LEAST #4

She used the last ages spell even though so was warned not to. She risked her life to save the world and even if it was only a minute she turned back, she stopped Gray dying and everyone had a glimpse into the future helping them to defeat the dragons. She's a character that is greatly overlooked and deserved more. In my eyes, she is the true hero of fairy tail and deserves much much more credit for what she did

6 Juvia

Oh my goodness, probably one of my favourite females characters with Erza and more! I love her bubbly personality and how she get's serious when somebody messes with somebody she's loves *cough* Gray *cough* No underrated

I personally like Juvia very much. I know, the way she loves Gray skirts madness, but, if you are following the manga, you've seen what she has done while battling Gray under Invel's spell. Against all odds, she has broken through his spell and tried to take her own life, so that Gray would be free of the chains and could beat Invel - which he did, magisterially. Plus, my respect towards her skyrocketed when I saw her killing Keith, probably the first time she killed someone since she joined Fairy Tail. The huge amount of mature feelings and thoughts that popped up during that fight are beyond description, hence why she is my favorite Fairy Tail's female character.

Considering how her character developed in strength and personality it should be enough to be a bit higher. If you think about it Juvia hasn't been completely useless she would always give it her all in battle especially since she's been getting more screen time people should see how impressive she's gotten plus she barely crys about things which I find is a good thing considering most female characters do. And another thing people shoukd Really consider how strong she is consideribg Gajeel is always willibg to work with her abd fight along side her (since their basically like BFF's). Not to mention her combination of her humorous personality, with that she also brings a different type of character to fairy tail- no not a crazy love stalker, just a girl who doesn't keep her emotions in well. In any case I found her attraction to Gray to be less from when she started which is pretty good and it shows that she isn't too dependant on Gray. If you still don't like Juvia please try and re ...more

I'm really sorry to say this, but Juvia has to be one of, if not, my least favorite characters. I mean, she has her perks, like she's strong, loyal, and loves her friends. But I cannot stand her obsession for Gray. When she's obsessive, I have to pause every 5 seconds to cringe. Sometimes, she can be cute, but it's overall annoying and stupid. I mean, she can fangirl about Gray, but when it's every second of her screen time, it gets old really fast. Lets face it, she is way too obsessive. If Hiro tones down her obsession to a normal person, I might like her better.

7 Sting Eucliffe

Do I need to explain? He is kind, loving and adorable. I'm not going to talk about how hot he is (he is the sexiest guy I know) because that will make me sound like the other comments. His character made such an emotional impact on me; the loss of Lector completely changed him, a genuinely unique character who was not born evil. He was abused, bullied and rejected; now as Sabertooth's master, he ensures the well-being of every comrade, guild member or not. His character even makes huge impacts on the mains, particularly Natsu (we can see this via the episode 'Natsu's Mind - Natsu's subconscious creates an image of Sting to guide him. Not Gray, not Lucy, not even Igneel, but Sting). The fact he picked Sting shows the huge impact he has on others as a character. I love him to bits, and any haters really need to look at his character development and personality. Because personally, he is my all time favorite anime character.

As soon as he appeared alongside Rogue and their exceeds at ep.151, he sent me into anime hell. With his hillarious facial expressions, honest but warm personality and adorable relationship with Lector, Sting is one of the most damn wonderful Fairy Tail characters in the show.

Sting is not only super strong but he constantly works hard to improve his skills and knows the true meaning of friendship. also he is so cute especially his friendship with Lecter and the way he looks up to Natsu is adorable.

What trash. He didn't even fight Fairy tail in the grand Magic games. He just fell to the floor and cried when he could have beat them because they were all beat up

8 Mirajane 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 is also a really lovable character with a VERY interesting change in attitude and style. I believe her magic is really strong it’s forbidden, but I don't know being that I’m not that far in. Still, love her!

I really love Mirajane. She's too kind and she's so positive. I believe she's the third strongest in fairy tail (guild) after mavis and makarov. Afterall we still doesn't know what's her limit. Even she might able to defeat mavis or makarov since she now have macro. She can control everyone and make them do things and she can do it every time she wants too. And she got a lot of strong demons. But her past is a bit too much for a cutie like her. Cause she defeated a demon for her village but still the villagers wants mirajane to go away from the village. BUT WHO CARES. WE ALL LOVE MIRAJANE

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.

Mira deserves more screen time. She's underrated and overrated at the same time. She's supposed to be super strong, but she's often portrayed as weak and bad at battling. She's also underrated for the same reason; she only ever gets good fight scenes when she's mad for her siblings or if her opponents are weak. She deserves more fight scenes!

9 Lucy

Lucy is honestly my favorite character. She is a mediocre mage who has a chance meeting with Natsu. When she joined a guild full of powerhouses she knew she was out of her league. Does she quit? Know, she could’ve left at any point in the story, but she didn’t. So what if she’s obsessed with her looks? She is the ONLY normal person who has realistic expectations, goals, flaws, and power at her age. She received no advice or training like Natsu, Gray, or Laxus. She relies on Natsu to save her because, there is no way she can fight Gajeel, and others above her. It took years for her to finally stand on her own two feet. Even before Alvarez she can hold down a stable job and a house with the money SHE earned. Since her father went broke, she had to get her own money. That is Lucy Heartfillia

I personally find Lucy to be conceited when it comes to her looks, and annoying when she simply sits back and watches as Natsu, Gray, Erza, etc save everyone. But when she actually gets up on her feet and fights, she's fairly strong. She has a lot of potential, and I believe the reason her power isn't as great as say, Juvia's, is because she spent so much of her life cooped up in a mansion. She also incredibly smart, if not a bit naive and superficial, and also cares for her friends. I think the reason she's not as driven as many of the other characters is because the traumatic events in her past weren't as severe. Overall, she's either my 5th or 6th favourite

Lucy is an amazing character! If you don't like her you shouldn't be a fan of Fairy Tail! She's our main character! The reason why she doesn't always fight is because celestial spirits take a lot of magic energy out of her and she isn't as reckless as Natsu. She is always trying to fit in with the other guys and now (In the manga) she can fight now! The one thing I don't like is that she uses her looks to weaken men, but hey everyone has flaws and she is beautiful! Every one has looked in the mirror and thought how horrible or beautiful/handsome they look. (SPOILER) After her star dress I think she can fight equally with the others, she is just as strong as them but doesn't always fight because it takes a lot of magic and needs to know when the time is right to strike.
Lucy is either my 3 favorite character (Kagura, Natsu, Lucy are my top 3)

How is the main character at number 7 on this list?! I've loved Lucy ever since the start, she's has amazing qualities that make her hilariously relatable: has trouble with her love life(ahem forget about that, she's got a Natsu ), the most logical out of all her friends, and is especially relatable when it comes to struggles about her personal problems. Most people who dislike Lucy only don;t like her because they think she 'sits back and lets Natsu and her friends fight for her instead of doing it for herself'. Well, guess what?

Lucy DOES fight for herself when she can. Remember in Tartaros, when everyone was isolated in that stuff and she was the only one left? She fought until she could barely move, and if you read the manga, you would know: after a year, Lucy turned from medium strength to a badass. Like seriously, how much more beautifully strong can you get? She probably matches Erza in both beauty AND power now!

10 Laxus

I feel that laxus should at least be ranked in the top 5 because throughout the whole series, he has shown great character development because he changed his ways of trying to be the strongest in the guild. One example is that he used to attack the whole fairy tail guild and wanted to replace Makarov, but he did that for a good reason, he wanted the guild to be strong. But he learned from his mistakes and also helped the guild more later on in the story. This is what makes him a character with a great personality. He has determination like Natsu too, if you read the Laxus spin-off.
Side note : He's hot and muscular too lmao

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.

God damn, I was just hanging around when I stumbled upon this comment and it made me vote for Laxus.

Agree on how underdeveloped other characters are!

When he first appeared in the show I hated his guts and didn't look forward to him showing up again. However at the end of the battle of fairy tail arc, I was actually moved by how he accepted his punishment and his relationship with Macarov. That made me dislike him a lot less. Fast forward to the Tenroe arc and I fell in love with both his strength and conviction. After that he quickly became my favorite character and that didn't change for the rest of the anime. Out of all the characters he has made the best character development while still keeping his origional personality intact. I love Laxus and it would take a lot for any other character to take his place for me.

The ultimate example of character development, and one of my favorites in the series. Laxus is first introduced as someone who acts as a superior and looks down at everyone else in the guild, even his grandfather Makarov. But after the Battle of Fairy Tail, you can see how much he cares for the guild, and also The Thunder God Tribe as well. What makes Laxus outstanding however, is his transition is not just some 100% bad to good change like Minerva. It's a realistic one, as he still retains some elements of his old personality.

The Contenders

11 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.

Ever since Gajeel saved Levy from Laxus' attack, he's been my favorite character. I honestly was surprised when he came back, and I didn't expect them to do much with him, but he's grown so much over the course of the series, mores than any other character. His transformation from a cold-hearted brute to a guy who just wants get back on the right track, and then to an extremely loyal member of the guild that'll do anything to protect those that he cares for (Levy in particular) is really inspiring. We get to see some of his backstory in the Tenrou and Tartaros arcs, which just makes him an even more interesting character. His relationship with Pantherlily is always fun to watch, and let's be real...Gajeel x Levy is the best ship in Fairy Tail. It's the only one that's actually canon, and Gajeel always goes out of his way to try and protect Levy, and vice versa. Their interactions are always just adorable, and their personalities just bounce off of each other really well.

Gajeel is one of natsu's biggest rival as well as comrade.he is not as much connected to the guild but is very loyal to it. One of the strongest dragon Slayers and was once ready to sacrifice his own life for guild while fighting laxus alongside natsu and bloodman alongside levy

I like that he never admits his feelings and he finally did at the scene where he almost died to Bloodman and his character portray is amazing!

He is absolutely amazingly strong and has a large amount of character development! He has been willing to better himself into a better human being once he entered Fairy Tail and hands down has a great badass personality. His personality also hold a lot of depth which makes him really interesting and unique.

12 Freed Justine

Freed is absolutely my favorite character. His magic is powerful and elegant and he's much more complex than any other character in Fairy Tail.

He's relatable because senpai never notices me :'(. He's strong and intelligent which are really good qualities and WOAH we could sit here all day talking 'bout his long and beautiful hair! *sassy hair flip*

Freed is just the sweetest, most intelligent, most handsome, kindest, and all around amazing little cinnamon bun you have ever laid eyes on. Voting him's easy!

Freed is AWESOME! He was nominated for S-Class! This dude is strong, kind, protective of Laxus, and smart. (Anybody remember when this man had a buzz cut? )

13 Rogue Cheney

I don't understand why he isn't higher. He was the only member of Sabertooth that questioned what their guild was doing, even going as far to call their guild's motives wrong. He didn't join them in the arena when they were going to throw down after Minerva hurt Lucy, not did he watch Minerva beat her up. He also has such a soft side for Frosh which is ADORABLE. And then there's the whole shadow thing. He's had to deal with the fact that in the future he could kill Sting, and yet he still strives to be happy. Honestly, I love Rogue. He should be at least 12.

In my opinion, Rogue is much more better-looking than Gray. At first, he shows his disinterest in everything and everyone, with Gajeel as the only person and thing he was interested in. He longed to surpass Gajeel. Rogue actually spoke up and questioned the Sabertooth guild's policies. After a while, he shows his caring nature towards his comrades. Rogue should be in the top ten.

People talk about how amazig Sting was and how he changed the guild. Rouge was the first one to notice what was up. He saw that the guild was corrupt. Also, we see strong bonds with Dragon Slayers and Exeeds throughout the show, but Rouges love for Frosh is very strong. Rouge also loves (yes loves.) Sting and Stings exeed, blanking on te name... Rouge also has the potential for great power. He may not be the strongest wizard ever, or the hottest(Jellal), but he deserves some credit. He has a golden heart and awesome Emo magic!

He's a total cutie (along with Sting of course) and he starts off seeming all 'not interested' and everything, but in that episode in which Frosch gets lost, Rogue isn't just a calm and cool character, he has a lot more personality. And he was always really kind, such as doubting his guild for kicking Yukino out. And when he's so protective over Frosch after Lector is 'killed' is so cute

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.

I think Gray Fullbuster is an outstanding character and not only is he one of the only main characters that gets good character development but he's also pretty strong. As we see on the Galuna Island Arc he has to face his past and stop running away from it. We see Gray get stronger and stop running away from his past. There are a few other arcs where we see more character development. Overall he's a great character and so great he appeared twice.

Gray's so good he's on this list twice.

He's so awesome, he's listed twice.

No need to comment why Gray

15 Zeref 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.

Hey why is Zeref so underrated? Get him higher! Zeref is a badass, awesome character who's extremely kind but was misled. Everyone hates him for his curse, though he never intended to kill anyone and warned them to stay away. He was a good guy, just being misunderstood. He wanted to revive his litte brother, get a horrible curse in the result, if he doesn't eant others to die when they are around him, he mustn't cherish their life. So he tried to hide from humanity in order to protect them but he couldn't stand witnessing them massacre each other, so he slowly begin to renounce his connection to humanity and get into the dark path. He spent his 400 years life seeing wars, fights and his loved ones leaving him whil he can do nothing for that, suffered for centuries and ended up being rejected by the world! Now, he wanted to be killed by the very litte brother he revived to put his miserable life to an end, such a sad ending for a kind, talented prodigy who treasures life more than ...more

I feel sorry for him. He was a good guy, just being misunderstood. He wanted to revive his litte brother, get a horrible curse in the result, if he doesn't eant others to die when they are around him, he mustn't cherish their life. So he tried to hide from humanity in order to protect them but he couldn't stand witnessing them massacre each other, so he slowly begin to renounce his connection to humanity and get into the dark path. He spent his 400 years life seeing wars, fights and his loved ones leaving him whil he can do nothing for that, suffered for centuries and ended up being rejected by the world! Now, he wanted to be killed by the very litte brother he revived to put his miserable life to an end, such a sad ending for a kind, talented prodigy who treasures life more than anybody else. Just because of his brother that he received the Ankseram curse, yet he still cares for and love his brother deeply and wanted to revive him still regardless of the price he must pay. He ...more

GET HIM HIGHER! He is obviously the coolest! He tried to bring back his little bro but he ended up cursed instead but that is not his fault. And besides thinking about how he got cursed makes me want to strangle natsu since he is trying to oppose and fight against his older brother who is going through a lot of suffering for him. If I were zeref I'm sure I would not try to resurrect my sibling if the cost of it was that high so natsu should be grateful instead.

Served is seriously such a great character. Even though he is meant to be the main villain of the series I just don’t see him as a bad person. He never wanted to hurt anyone and the only reason he did any of this is so that he could have a better life and make the world a better place. I feel so sorry for him and I wish people would stop misunderstanding this amazing character. Vote for Zeref as number 1 character!

16 Meredy

Meredy, although she isn't shown too much, is in my opinion a great character. She is very strong and developed a lot in the short period we saw her. She claimed during her scuttle with Rusty that she lived in the present and he lived in the past, meaning that she's optimistic, and has a reason to live-live for your friends

I think she should be number 1. She has been one of the only characters in fairy tail who I really liked then ended up hating.

You liked her then ended up hating her or hated her then ended up liking her?

Sweet, beautiful, caring, cheerful, and great character development. Meredy is really underrated.

She's on of the sweetest characters and is just really nicer than most people and she's very loyal!

17 Mystogan

Only 17? he is the most mysterious and badass Fairy Tail Wizard and it's a shame most people don't remember him anymore, he deserves to make a return to fight agaisnt zeref

Omf. He's myst a lot by the Fairy Tail fans (Including myself. I'm sorry, I had too, okay? ). I loved Mystogan's character. Like, a lot.

So mysterious and so cool, he is like the Fairy Tail's version of Batman. Hope one day he returns.

He's dark, mysterious, and a total badass. He should be up there, right below his counterpart.

18 Wendy

Wendy is so cute and adorable! I love how she's innocent, nervous, respectful, and shy. She's just a child yet she has such powerful magic. She can heal people, is a High Enchanter, a dragon slayer, and a strong determined character. I liked her past with Mystogan and how determined she is to find him again. She is also one of the main 7 characters (Natsu, Lucy, Erza, Gray, Happy, Carla, and herself) but is constantly looked down on just because she's younger than most wizards. (She's not actually young, she just hasn't aged much. She is around 421 because she spent 400 years inside the Eclipse Gate, 7 years on Tenrou Island, lived for 12 years outside more years. A year passed when Fairy Tail disbanded and another year passed after the Alvarez arc.) She only seems weak because she probably holds back a lot since she doesn't like fighting. Irene took over her body and was almost able to beat Erza, but Wendy was able to enchant her personality into Irene to help out Erza. Wendy is a ...more

Honestly, Wendy should at least be in the top ten. When she was first introduced, she was very shy and modest and mainly used her powers for healing. But ever since she joined Fairy Tail, she slowly became more confident and stronger as well. I mean, she even got her Dragon Force when she was twelve! TWELVE! Natsu got his Dragon Force until he was a young adult. Also, Wendy has an amazing personality. She's kind, sweet, and modest.
She may have flaws like how she can still be reserved and quiet around certain people but besides that, I think she easily is one of the best characters in the Fairy Tail series.

Wendy is by far my favorite character in Fairy Tail. She is kind, sweet, and is the only one who has magic that can support and heal other mages, which makes her one of a kind. At the start she is very weak and doubts her powers as a dragon slayer, as she is still very young around the age to 10 or 11 at the time. Later on in the Tartaros Arc, Wendy around age 12 not only gets her Dragon Force, but also single handly defeats one the seven books of Zeref. Keep in mind that Natsu, Gajeel, Mirajane, Erza, and others had trouble defeating some of the other books of Zeref, and they even had help. I love characters like Wendy, and I feel like she is too underrated.

Wendy is such an amazing character! Not only is she very powerful and strong (dragon slayer magic and dragon force) but she is also super kind, caring and helpful. You often don't see characters with both of these traits but that's why I love her. She's beautiful, cute, sweet, cool and strong! I loved her the second she ran into the guild and fell on her face, she has evolved so much from being an adorable, sensitive little girl. She's my favourite character from fairy tail without a doubt.

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

Loke is an overrated garbage character. His personality has nothing special besides being a pervert and a player. The only thing cool about him is what he did for Aries, his power, and his clothes, which could easily be given to a better zodiac. Speaking of zodiacs, why is he the leader of them? He shouldn't be given a higher title simply because he's the Lion. I want to see other zodiacs more, like Capricorn, but no, we see Loke instead. Whoopdedoo. What a disappointment he is to those who has the Leo as their constellation sign.

I'm just amazed how most of these ratings are based on looks. Like LOL. Loke isn't even that strong of a character. He is really overrated. I mean, yes he comes to help occasionally, but out of all the celestial spirits, you can't tell me that he's the best. I would get it if Virgo, Aquarius, hell! Even Horologium. He just seems wimpy and his personality is weak and cliché. Just leave it to Taurus with the perverted remarks.

I really liked him at first! (After he turned out to be Leo) but then he became a player flirter a girl every time he was summoned. Geez man put those panties back in your pants!
And anyone else find it a peeve that he wears a tux with sunglasses? No? Okay.

Loke, Leo the lion has the most sexiest hair you can ask for and he isn't 17th on the list! COME ON GUYS AND GET SENPEI TO NUMBER! He deserves it x'D

20 Kagura Mikazuchi

This woman could destroy anything without even unleashing her sword! That is power! If it wasn't for Erza telling her about Simon's death and getting Kagura so emotional(which broke her focus on the match) then I truly believe that she could have taken Erza down. While watching her fight, I truly thought to myself "Erza might lose." Super strong, a great wizard, needs more screen time. Also, she wear clothes! She's not running around trying to fight in high heels and a bikini! She looks like a warrior, and I love that!

Seriously, Kagura is stronger than Erza. That fight in the GMG did not prove anything. 1. She didn't use any magic! Like really? She might've won the battle if she actually used gravity magic.
2. She got very dramatic when she found out Erza was the one who saved her, so she LET Erza win.
She is also an amazing character and I wish she could fight more to prove her strength!

Kagura is my favourite character. Why? Because she's very strong but is also delicate. She probably could've beaten Erza if she didn't get so emotional. Unlike Erza, she doesn't win EVERY SINGLE BATTLE(not that I hate Erza). She's cool and is not all about her looks, which I like.

- Her mediocre backstory and ties with Erza weren't convincing.
- Her design, clothing especially, is pretty much a copy from two video game characters.

+ Everything else :D cool and majestic yet humble, extremely capable, a saint in a boobage fest, calm, loyal, cute, and imperfect!

21 Happy

You really do have to admit: Happy is ADORABLE. And he's not JUST cute. He can FLY, which he uses to get people out of some tricky spots! He's always funny and, well, HAPPY!

Happy is the 2nd worst character in fairy tail (Lucy is the last)! He is annoying and he is not cute and doesn't make me HAPPY! He makes me angry and irritated with him!

Happy is so great! He is in my top ten for sure. He is so funny, and cute, and I love how he teases Lucy so much. I honestly quote happy all the time.

Happy is so cute! He helps Natsu out of difficult situations and makes me laugh a lot ("move these boulders with your mind! ). Aye, sir!

22 Lyon

I actually think Lyon should be in the top ten... He's super handsome and at first he was quite obsessed with becoming better than his master your and seems quite vain. But later on his more caring characteristics comes to pass. He adores Juvia and does everything to try and please her. He also asks Gray when he was planning to marry Juvia; he obviously is struggling with the thought but overcomes by thinking about Juvia's happiness... Why does Juvia like Gray when he is so absurdly mean to her?!?!

Lyon is an AMAZING character. He was super sweet when he was a kid and has awesome skill when it comes to his magic. Did I mention his hair?

The first time I saw him, I was just like, wow. He's just as handsome as Gray.

When it comes to the hair...sorry Natsu, but this award is going to Lyon

23 Rufus Lore

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

Huh...gray just kicked his ass...with some of his brain.

Who was that again? Oh wait...THAT guy.

24 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.

Well I mean its Mavis, after watching Fairy Tail zero she became one of my favorite characters she is so adorable! And when she cried at the grand magic games everyone tried to console her, and after when she wanted to eat cake but she was a ghost so ;-;. Her and Zeref's love story broke my heart it sucks that their first (and last?) kiss killed her :(

Not only is she the most intelligent of the show, she also is exeptanally skilled as well as adventurous and kind. In my opinion, she should be a lot higher on the list, for she is just overall the best character by a long shot.

SPOILER WARNING

WHAT? Put her on #2! Brilliant story about the formation of the guild! I relate to her so much! Her story with zeref is great and I love her illusion magic! It suits her because she is so clever, yet imaginative and happy! She’s also very strategic! The game with Yuri was really great! I love her and I think I relate to her even more than any other character! She’s adventurous and insightful and just wants to travel and help the world be a better place! Wonderful character development and I love her and her friend’s relationship! It was so terrible when she got cursed! I was so happy when she got her body back though, and her and Zera’s relationship is so beautifully done!

We didn't really get to see a lot of her personality until fairy tail zero. At that point, we get fully immersed in just how clever, brilliant, brave, adventurous, and strong willed she is. I really respect characters and people like that. She's like the Artemis Fowl of Fairy Tail. Even down to the fact that they were both looking for fairies. Isn't that an interesting coincidence...

25 Gildarts

I once saw a review about him and they said he was their least favorite character. I almost had a heart attack and asked them why. I was totally raging for the rest of the day. Unlike 90% of FT characters, he's modest and isn't arrogant or constantly challenging people (coughNatsucough LOL, he's so cute, though :) ) like Jellal. That's what I love about him.

He is one of the strongest wizards in whole anime and still he is nice and not arogant like some other guys. Also he is like a father to many guild members. He even cheered natsu up when he knocked him down on s class trial and still let him pass.

He's the sweetest character in this anime. He acted almost like a father to natsu and lisanna and despite his power he isn't arrogant or annoying.

Gildarts is so OP that he stood a chance agasist Archellongia I think I spelled the name wrong but whatever and he SURVIVED he he is lucky to have a great awesome daughter named Kana
