Top Ten Favorite Fairy Tail Male Characters

Who is just the absolute best male character in Fairy Tail, and, if given the chance, you'd marry him? (If you want... )

The Top Ten

1 Jellal Fernandes 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.

Jellal is amazing, he's so cute and powerful! He kinda seems like a nice guy, even though he did bad things, like kill simon, but hey, he was possessed. I LOVE YOU JELLAL! YOU ARE AMAZING!

Jellal is a very complex character with a dark past. Not to mention good looking. I'm gonna get hate for this but I'd rather see a series with Jellal as the main protagonist instead of Natsu

I don't hate you for that comment. In fact, you made me like you more! - Goku02

Jellal should be number 1 than Gray because he is more handsome and extremely strong than Gray.

He is super duper cute I really admire him but I wish he can go on a date with erza 😄i really my senpai (jellal)

2 Gray Fullbuster 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 more.

He is the best. I love him. My beloved gray-sama. I can marry him if he will be in this real world. I can die for him if I will get him after that. I am also having this picture of him with me. When he cries I can't control my tears. If I will write about him, it will take the whole website. So gray if you will ever read this (which I know can't happen) I love your gray).

Gray is so COOL. Literally. He is my favorite character in all of Fairy Tail.

He's the one. Literally can I marry this guy? He's hot, entertaining and cares so much about his family (the guild). His magic is super cool (pun intended) and just magical. Also, him and Juvia are goals, there magic is perfect together, and so are they!

Gray is such an amazing character. He's so good looking and he has such a cool magic.

3 Laxus Dreyar 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 more.

Unlike Natsu, he actually went through development and strove to be better as a person, not just a fighter

He is a really complex character that I admire.

Laxus is kinda cute.

Laxus isn't an easily described character, and unlike quite a few within the anime, he actually developed and incredibly well. He began as a rather nasty piece of work, that was trying his best to purge Fairy Tail of all the weak members, and he was mildly insane. But even when he was that way, you could see what sort of character he could turn into, because when he used the Fairy Law spell it didn't work the way he had intended it to. Fairy Law is an incredibly destructive spell that when casted eliminates the caster's greatest enemy. Laxus, despite saying that he hated all the Fairy Tail members, hated weakness more so, and when he cast the spell every member became stronger, because in his heart of hearts they were his family.
When he came back from exile [and that good bye was heart breaking.] he was a better person. He defended Levy from Gajeel, even though it probably wasn't that needed, and he ended up protecting Fairy Tail on a number of occasions before he was accepted ...more - k-k2

4 Zeref 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, most evil Mage of all time, who possesses extremely dangerous, and powerful Magic. more.

Zeref is a cutie! Whenever I see him cry, I'm just like; "does someone need a hug? " he's super cute when he's not angry. Plus he's crazy powerful

Zeref is extremely strong. He is the strongest male character in Fairy Tail.

I just DON'T KNOW why he's even my favorite character. He just is. No other reason. Maybe because he's Natsu's older brother.

He is so cool

5 Natsu Dragneel 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. more.

I wonder: does his throat ever hurt?

Natsu is strong, he can adapt his strength to beat his enemies and never gives in. He also cares for everyone even if they have done bad he is willing to look past that!

Natsu is strong and also later in Manga series he will become the second strongest in the whole fairy tail series

He's my adorable little Natsu and if anyone hurts him I will cry

6 Gajeel Redfox 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 love, Gajeel is life. He starts out a total idiot but he turns out to be absolutely adorable (See when Lily becomes his cat). I love his relationship with Levy (and they really need to get together right about now) and I think he should be higher than this.

Oh and his singing (Japanese version) is actually pretty good :D

Gajeel is amazing. He's the perfect example of how a strong antagonist can become a loyal protagonist, fighting for a better cause. He's an all round good character and he should be way higher than this.

Anatagonist well used to be who is now a protagonist who is fighting to do better things out all characters he seems to be thrown into trash when it comes to back stories Gajeel is a extremely shady character who is very mysterious and that interest me also he's a huge dork

Best character delelopment to be honest

7 Lyon Vastia Lyon Vastia

He only kicked his ass because Gray was hesitating... He has an advantage in experience but when it comes down to it, Gray would wreck him.

That face thought... It is so hot.

He is totally better than gray! He kicked grays's ass during their first fight and he is a better looking guy then gray - nanaseNaomi

8 Gildarts Clive Gildarts Clive

Guild arts is just the cutest! Even cuter because of his relationship with Cana and Natsu. Even though he's Older than he seems he's the best.

Gildarts could annihilate everyone

except Acnologia

Gildarts is an extremely strong Mage, he's definitely Fairy Tail's Ace. He could definitely be a Wizard Saint if he ever went for the position. Even though he's quite a bit old [in his late 40s I believe], he is still rather handsome and he cares a lot about his friends and family. He's very protective and loving of Cana after he found out she was his daughter, he knows when to joke and when to be serious, but he isn't a completely unreachable adult figure. He can be child-like when he wants to, an example of such when he's sat with Laxus on Tenrou Island and he takes the mickey out of him because he was exiled from the guild, calling him a loser and laughing. - k-k2

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

Loke is handsome and strong and I can't believe that he is a celestial spirit.

He is a creepy rapist

The one below he is awesome which he is not - waterlover

Number 9th? What the hell? I'm pissed! He should be top 3.

10 Sting Eucliffe Sting Eucliffe

Sting is a strong character, that develops rather nicely each moment he's on the screen. He works well with Rogue, although he was a rather nasty piece of work in the very beginning, it is understandable considering how Sabertooth was ran then. He is respectful to those he likes and knows are better or stronger than him, such as Minerva, Natsu, Erza and several others. He is rather attractive, although he could do with some more training to become a stronger dragon slayer before he starts bragging about his strength again. - k-k2

HE MAKES THE BEST FACIAL EXPRESSIONS AND HE IS SO HOT! I know some of you guys are going to thumb me down for this, but I like him more than Natsu.

Sting's blonde hair and expressions are amazing! He cares for Lector a lot, obviously, and is good friends with Rogue! Why wouldn't he be a favorite?

11 Mystogan Mystogan

He's so mysterious, selfless, kind-hearted and cool! He's just as kind and handsome as his counterpart Jellal Fernandes, not to mention extremely powerful too! I can't believe he's 17th, he's my 3rd favourite Fairy Tail male character, just below Zeref and Jellal Fernandes!

He's just so nice idek

12 Elfman

Be a man like elfman always says but elfman gets so much stronger after a bit of time so go vote for him

13 Rogue Cheney Rogue Cheney

In my opinion, I like Sting more (I know a lot of people are going to thumb me down for that), but Rouge is my 4th favorite next to Natsu and Gajeel. He's so caring, and I love that about him.

Caring, gentle, kind hearted, protective, stands out from his sadistic guild, never did anything wrong yet gone through hell because of his future self, super underrated and definitely should be higher

Rogue is super strong and cute.

Rogue doesn't get that much love, honestly he is one of my favorite FT boys I mean the way he treats Frosh is so cute! He is so nice yet he can be scary like a nightmare I mean is a shadow dragon for a reason. But still he is mysterious and his personality goes great with Kagura I ship them team rogura! Anyways Rogue is always over looked cause everyone loves sting. But come on the characters like rogue,kagura,millianna, and more get so shadowed I guess that's what you could call it. I really like rogue so ease mashima give him some more screen time.
