Smartest Fairy Tail Characters

The Top Ten Smartest Fairy Tail Characters

1 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

Infiltrating the regulating body of magic and a group of the strongest mages in the continent keeping his real identity secret is a pretty badass thing to do.But the fact that the councillor and youngest wizard saint ever was a mere thought projection of his makes us wonder how powerful he really is.He was the first one in the series to have faced natsu in dragon mode and still fight as an equal even after fighting mages like erza..herself a force to be reckoned with.Still he didn't fight natsu with his full power for the towers destruction was undesired.Even then he would have killed natsu with abyss break had erzas previous attack not prevented him from doing so.Studying one type of elemenal magic takes a lifetime for some while he all alone perfectly all four is a feat in itself..he's easily one of the strongest and smartest one in fairy tail..evem stronger than laxus..while people proclaik laxus is stronger due to his endurance let me humbly point out no small level of endurance ...more

2 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.

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.

Zeref is smarter than jellal in my oppinion

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

3 Mavis Vermilion

Fairy Tactician. Enough said. - Goku02

Do I even need to write a reason?

She needs to be first

SHE LITERALLY IS SUPER SMART FOR HER AGE

4 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

5 Levy McGarden

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

I think Levy the smart one

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.

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.

7 Mystogan / Edolas Jellal

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!

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

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

She may be book smart, but she truly is a blonde bimbo in terms of logic and battle technique. She is smart but her arrogance clouds her mind and she ends up being pretty much stupid. - Cwawissa

10 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's Really clever and really strategic should be a lot higher on the list.

He's actually pretty strategic and creative when it comes to his fights.

13 Rufus Lore

He memorized everything

14 Freed Justine
15 Wahl Icht
16 Cana Alberona

In the zodiac fight she showed some tactical skills

17 Eve Tearm
18 Yuri Silverknight

She is of course the most dangerous and strongest woman in all Fairy Tail characters!
She is also a Sea God Slayer and a Water Dragon Slayer!
She is the abandoned daughter of the Great Queen Dragon Slayer, Irene Belserion and Acnologia!
She is the first disciple of the First Fairy Tactician, Mavis Vermillion!

19 Anna Heartfilia

Anna is a genius! Not only did she find a way to make eclipese (sorry for my spelling) work, but she also adapted in a totally different timeframe (aka 400 years in the future, sorry for the spoileres). If that wasn't enough, Anna also found a way to save herself, along with Icychia and many otheres from Aconoligia, by temporally guiding him through the space between time, then she fould a way out for her and Icyica. She truley is the most stratigic and smart charecter in fairy tail, and deseves to at least be in the top 10. Sorry! That's just my opinion I don't want to offend anyone!

20 Mard Geer Tartaros
21 Ichiya

Why is he even on this list, he is not that smart to be honest - FFMaster2005
