Smartest Fairy Tail Characters


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.

This guy is a complete genius! He's the most diverse character in the show, and he has mastered all four basic elements, AND he's the youngest Wizard Saint ever! He became a Wizard Saint using Half of his powers. He also learned and casted extremely complicated and advanced spells like Square of Self-Destruction successfully after being explained how to just once. And he managed to copy Mystogan's magic in only a few days, and has used it during the GMG and went toe to toe against a Wizard Saint. He's a prodigy, he learns things so fast. Not to mention single-handedly infiltrated the Council... - Goku02

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

To be honest all fairytail characters are stupid when it comes to intelligence or tatics in a fight.I still love them though.

Genius. He found out the way to revive the dead when he was just a kid, so I think he should be above Mavis though Mavis's intelligence is focused on more. - Goku02

He hasn't been very smart lately. He just killed off his "secret weapon" for defeating Acnologia, and let the Spriggan 12, supposedly the strongest enemies ever to face the Fairy Tail wizards, do whatever they wanted which ended up in having half of them dying (3 of which were suicides), and the other have defeated.

3 Ultear Milkovich Ultear Milkovich

She manipulated Jellal, second on this list, like a pro. She orchestrated and executed so many plans throughout the series. She broke into a magic council high security prison and freed one of their most important convicts. Not to mention she learned Arc of Time at a very young age, and learned ice make magic without your's guidance.

Ultear is exceptionally smart! She tricked a lot of people into believing her. - Goku02

4 Mavis Vermilion Mavis Vermilion


Fairy Tactician. Enough said. - Goku02

Do I even need to write a reason?

She needs to be first

5 Levy McGarden Levy McGarden

I think Levy the smart one

How is she not higher? She is an awesome bookworm!

I don’t see why she isn’t number one. Sure the people above her are good at magic/know how to use magic. The people above her are mostly just knowledgeable in one area, while Levy knows lots about what seems like everything. Sure some people might say, “Well these people were smart as kids.” Well we don’t know much about Levys background so she could have been smarter as a kid.
-Your Fairy Tail Friend and Levy Lover,

She is the brains of the Fairy Tail Guild and the Shikamaru (from Naruto) of the show. She is definitely the smartest character but doesn't get notoriety because she gets gets no character development in the show. She reads an infinite number of books " nonstop and just keeps reading ". She is the smartest character in the show but this list is more about popularity than actual intelligence.

6 Brain / Zero

His name is Brain and that's saying something LOL. Plus he was Jellal's master! - Goku02

7 Mystogan / Edolas Jellal Mystogan / Edolas Jellal
8 Hades Hades
9 Lucy Heartfilia 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 more.

She rewrote END... that's all. This example is enough to prove her intelligence and the way she explained where is mavis grave was super awesome!

She has proved her intelligence in many fairy tail episodes. Levy is studious but lucy is intelligent.

She is not good when it comes to fighting but she is very intelligent. Hiro Mashima mentioned that Lucy is actually the most intelligent character in team natsu. She has proved her extreme intelligence in tenrou island arc. She also saved Natsu by rewriting E.N.D.

According to Fairy Tail Guidebook, Lucy is the smartest member in Team Natsu. - Goku02
