Strongest Characters in the Fairy Tail Anime

The Top Ten

1 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 more.

Seriously! Zeref is obviously the strongest not to mention he is incredibly hot and looks like a teenager even though he is above 400

He has the power to kill people, he wins hands down. No cap - Arjun04

I explained this in my other review... so go read it...

I could never tell if he is good or evil: he made all the demons to kill himself because he thought he caused way too much harm :(

So cute :3

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. more.

Ok, why is Jellal above him? Natsu beat him! And he's always becoming stronger! Seriously.

Natsu is just my favorite character. But on a serious note, he has the most potential in my opinion. - Yeeet

How is he not on top?

He defeated jellal with ease!

3 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.

He is very powerful.But why is gray not in the list? Have you forgotten him? How an you? But jellal deserves votes.

1) He can cast ABYSS BREAK that needed 4 elemental masters to cast it, all by himself.
2) He created a thought projection(Siegrain) so powerful(with ability to use magic) and convincing that it became a wizard saint and a top council member.
3) His Heavenly Body Magic is one of the most destructive and versatile magic in Fairy tail not to mention also the most beautiful magic.
4)He is a canonical genius with such high potential that he literally scared Brain with his astounding ability to learn any magic. Like Brain’s very own self destruct magic, that Jellal learned by seeing it once.
5) His(solo) performance against acnologia, is the best we’ve seen so far in the whole manga. The same acnologia that one shotted the likes of god Serena(strongest of Ishgar) and Gildarts. The one that Zeref didn’t even dare to fight until he had more power aka fairy heart.
6) Which is why it’s easy to say Jellal can basically do like 100 different kinds of magics if not more with ...more

4 Acnologia

This destroyed Gildarts


5 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.

God slayer magic trumped Dragon slayer magic.
Devils and gods are summed up to be equals...

Therefore, Gray now has a magical advantage over Natsu, no longer can his ice be melted by mere dragon slayer fire, Natsu will now need something much stronger and he no longer has that option because he believes himself to be human.

That and Natsu only really has Gray beat in two areas. Destructive and near endless magical reserves. Even in his more powerful forms (except maybe DragonForce but that's debatable.) Like Lightning Thunder-flame Gray is still faster, reasonably more durable, faster with his reactions and has more knowledge on Natsu's fighting style than anyone else. Gray is also very clever and tactile, so those things as well as many other advantages go for him winning against Natsu.

I personally believe that in base form Gray is just a little under Laxus in terms of overall power and fighting ability. However, if he starts getting serious enough then I ...more


I love this anime so much I cried and I am crying now because it ended and I especially love natsu and gray they are like big brothers to me (embarrising ikr) they make me laugh they are both skilled and if I could be like anyone of them I would pick gray he is my absolute favorite character he has amazing jokes skills strength and habits(lol) this maade me think why is gray so low on this list he should be above laxus and below gildarts

He's true strong he is Number two strong But the first he's just weak
And then he Fight his father and he get Strong t

6 Gildarts
7 Mavis Vermilion
8 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. more.

The leader of Phantom lord marked her as an equal. She is one of the strongest and should be 3rd behind Makarov and Guildarts.

She is the second best in all fairy tale (behind Guildarts) and she defeated the entire phantom guild with like, three swipes of her sword. She also uses logic to defeat opponents and can easily find weakness in anybody (like Midnight) and easily crush them. She also seems to have a near Infinent amount of swords in her arsenal. In no way am I saying she is the best, but she should be rated, like, 6th.

She's the strongest of all

She's Erza Scarlet and that's all u need 2 know

9 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 more.

She is so much stronger than Lucy, Wendy, Ultear and Chelia and Meredy.
if she's angry, she can defeat Erza and Mira

10 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.

The list it self isn't right.I am not going deep about this matter but Laxus should be higher than Natsu and Erza in a correct sense.Natsu and Erza are more appearing in the series than Laxus.that's why they focus on this 2 more and their powers.But when Laxus appears in the series,When he fought 2 S-Class Mage and then 2 dragon slayers and cast the Fairy law and was least injured between Natsu and Gajeel.When he appeared in Tenrou arc,he did more damage to Hades then others present including Natsu and Erza.Natsu beat Hades with Laxuses powers.Laxus beat Natsu with one punch.that's was a funny incident.But in a battle the results would have been same with just more of than a punch.He beat the whole Fairy tail Anti-squad in the tournament with a very few scratches in the body.He beat Jura not using his true powers.Well Jura also didn't sure his full powers either but he will always be no match for Laxus.He then beat the immortal in a sense Tempesta and inhaled anti Magic particles and ...more

18 Irene Belserion

Irene is the mother of erza scarlet and invet the dragon slayer magic shes very strong so I think she should be at least on the top
