Strongest Fairy Tail Characters
The Top Ten
Zeref was the strongest evil mage in history, who possesses a very dangerous magic. He can kill any thing around him. In the past he was said to be cruel and evil.
You do realize its not magic he uses it's a curse read fairy tail zero and you will find out what I mean
For heavens sake the guy is 400yrs old and has the power of death he also created countless demons just one of this demons could finish of most of the people on this list
How is this guy even at the bottom of the list it seriously makes no sence at all he is the most powerful wizard in the world and he ends up ranked at tenth? Fail
Zeref is known as the most dangerous wizard and that he's unrivalled, no one can match his power. His magic isn't death, its death itself, Also history has it 400 yrs ago he obtained immortality, he can't die and on top of that he created demons such as deliora and lullaby which were overwhelmingly powerful, in which lullaby had natsu erza and gray to take it down, and lullaby had your use iced shell on it and that ended with her dying. Well not exactly she was the shell, but none the less he's one terrifying wizard and should definitely rank 1st
How is this below everyone? This thing pretty much destroyed or demolished everyone in fairy tail combined. Seriously give this dude some love and just because he's bad doesn't make him weak.
I agree the only one I could see him under is Zeref and maybe Mavis
He's actually the strongest, Zeref himself said he was scared of Acnologia because he couldn't defeat him even though he's immortal
This Guy took out Gildarts who is #3 on this instantly. The Magic Council is so scared of it the ran at the mention of his name. Even Zeref believes Acnologia is powerful enough to destroy the world and bring about a new era. All of Fairy Tail combined was defeated easily by him and it took their combined power in addition to all that of Mavis Vermillion just to stop his breath attack. The only reason they survived was because he left thinking he had won.
8.Any of featless dragons
Mavis is Number Two. The only reason she's number two though is because there can't be two Number Ones. She created Fairy Law, Fairy Glitter, and Fairy Sphere. Fairy Law can take out a Wizard Saint, Fairy Glitter can get 9999 on the MPF, and Fairy Sphere can withstand Acnologia's Dragon Roar. As the founder of Fairy Tail, even Makarov, a Wizard Saint, respects her power.
She is the first master and the founderer of the great fairy tail and childhood friend of zeref so it is obvious that she is as powerful as zeref and she is also cute and kind
She has been stated to be on par with Zeref when serious, and the three Great Fairy Magics finish it off. Fairy Glitter completely annihilates opponents in a small radius. Fairy Law destroys all of the casters' enemies within a radius more than the size of an entire town. And Fairy Sphere protects everyone within a large area from everything, including time!
It's pretty clear, from who she is, and her backstory, and her titles, and what's been shown of her in the manga, that she is extremely powerful. And not only that, but the most recent anime arc at the time that I write this is Fairy Tail Zero, which just might be the most adorable Fairy Tail arc ever.
I'm not even a Fairy Tail fan anymore, to be honest (though I still like it because it gives me a good laugh, and it's nice and friendly), but Mavis and the recent anime arc are awesome, and while a Fairy Tail fan I am not, a Mavis and Fairy Tail Zero fan I am.
Crash, Gildarts' signature Magic, Crash is an extremely powerful Caster Type Magic that smashes everything the user comes into contact with into pieces. It can even be used to both crack Magic into pieces, nullifying its effects, as well as to reduce the Magic's power and to deflect it. Even the most powerful spells are rendered useless when faced with this destructive and highly advanced Magic, which is seemingly difficult to control even for an extremely powerful individual like Gildarts.
Gildarts Clive is a user of Crash Magic, which is capable of nullifying enemy magic, or destroying something instantly. Crash Magic is enough to defeat the second strongest member of Grimoire Heart, Bluenote Stinger, and it's what makes him the Ace of Fairy Tail. Even without Crash, he's still immensely powerful. His magic energy is enough to make Natsu, who is stubborn and never admits defeat, give up.
Cash, Gildarts' signature Magic, is an extremely powerful Caster Type Magic that smashes everything the user comes into contact with into pieces. It can even be used to both crack Magic into pieces, nullifying its effects, as well as to reduce the Magic's power and to deflect it. Even the most powerful spells are rendered useless when faced with this destructive and highly advanced Magic, which is seemingly difficult to control even for an extremely powerful individual like Gildarts.
Gildarts' magic is just outstanding!. I understand there are others with the power to make gildarts magic useless, but in that case, he has amazing hand-to-hand combat.
He is adept with his Dragon Slayer Magic and makes use of it in many different ways in combat. As with all Dragon Slayers, he can consume his respective element, with the exception of that which he has created, to replenish his energy reserves. The heat of his fire can increase in temperature, which is proportional to Natsu's emotional state. Natsu subconsciously used this against Erigor; his flame's heat significantly rose as he got more enraged. This is also called the Flame of Emotion. He incorporates the flames he ignites into his fighting style, greatly increasing the damage of his blows. As such, Natsu's Magic revolves around the usage of fire that can spout from any part of his body.
He's not the most powerful in Fairy Tail yet but Erza admitted in the manga version of the tower of heaven arc that she believes that Natsu will be the one who will surpass her. His courage, determination, daring, bravery and conviction leads him to become more powerful than people may expect when he fights for his friends and his guild. Yeah, so he's not the strongest YET but he's certainly powerful and has a lot of potential.
He is awesome but he needs to unlock all his powers at will to become even stronger and make some new ways to use his magic in combat.
Natsu gets up whenever he gets punched back he cares for his friends master and igneel I vote for him
Yeah Laxus is powerful. He bullied his dad and the other members of Raventail at the grand magic games by himself. Also he once defeated a powerful wizard saint and once fight Master Hades
Laxus is the grandson of Makarov, the number four on this list. Not only does he have Lightning Dragon Slayer magic, he can even cast the legendary Fairy Law. This definitely makes him a force to be reckoned with.
How is Laxus below Natsu? Natsu may have defeated him once, but that was only because he had Gajeel with him.
He is so strong wizard he singly defeat all raven tail wizards by himself. And also after casting powerful spell like fairy law & thunder palace he still fight two s-class mages & two dragonslayer at same time. I think he is strongest wizard in fairy tail no other wizard is more powerful than laxus
Jellal Fernandes is an ex-Wizard Saint. He has many powerful spells, like Bind Snake, Heavenly Body Magic, and even the forbidden Abyss Break. With such spells as Altairis, Grand Chariot, and Sema, it's no wonder that he's on this list.
To be honest, I believe that Jellal is indeed one of the most powerful mage in Fairy Tail as a antagonist and a supporting character. Not like I have a hate on Natsu but he should not be on the 2nd place. It should be Mavis followed by Precht or other powerful mages.
Jellal is a powerful and a great antagonist. He is a member of the Ten Wizard Saints back then and may still is if he was not taken as a criminal. Remember people, Jellal was the only antagonist in the anime who killed a somewhat important character in his arc. He killed Simon in one shot. If this does not explain anything and you are still convinced that Narsu or Gray is greater than him then I'm afraid that you are being biased on them.
Yes, Natsu defeated him but it was only because of a power up, a booster. If they fight seriously with out boosters then Jellal would beat him.
I also believe that he and Lacus are on par on strength and magic
Hades is no longer strong. He is dead. The reason he WAS strong was because of a machine. His "heart"
Half the crap I'm reading on here is wrong. Overall, (not playing favorites), he should rank just under Zeref and Mavis. Heavenly Body Magic is relatively as strong (if not stronger) than Dragon, God, or Demon Slayer Magic.
He single handedly took out Oracion Seis, something even Jura had issues doing (granted Jura wasn't as powerful at the time).
The manga shows that Jellal (under the cover of Mystogan) actually beat Jura (not being overcome by the Shared Link Magic) at the Grand Wizard Games.
As he progressed with his newfound guild Crime Sorcereis (or something of the sort), his power practically increased tenfold, if not more.
After all this evidence, I cannot understand why people still underestimate Jellal. His power rivals that of Makarov, and is far more powerful than 90% of the others on this list.
This is practically a list of favorites. People need to get their facts straight first. This poll wasn't called Top Ten Favorite...
To be honest, he's just too soft and is a cinnamon roll so people think that he isn't so strong but he's damn powerful and has lots of potential.
Jellal's (True) Heavenly Body Magic is pro and with just two spells (excluding Meteor) he took out Oracion Seis like nobody's business. He's also an ex-Wizard Saint and had a destruction spell that could destroy Nirvana (though it was Brain who taught him that spell).
Requip: The Knight, Erza's signature form of Magic. Over which she possesses great mastery. It is a type of Magic that allows her to swap weapons, armor and clothes at will. Her particular form of Requip is called The Knight. She is noted for her ability to reequip extremely fast and is the only sword Mage known to be capable of reequipping weapons and armor while fighting, something which made her well known throughout the Kingdom of Fiore and Magnolia Town, earning her the epithet "Titania".
Erza Scarlet was bound to be on the list. Like your, Laxus, and Ultear, Erza is seen by many as being at Wizard Saint level. Even Jellal, a Wizard Saint who has spells rivaling the destructive powers of a meteor praises her power. She's famous for her use of Requip Magic, and is capable of swapping to different, powerful armors, like Armadura Fairy or Heaven's Wheel Armor.
Erza is so cool. She could requip into anything. She is cute and beatiful. She also has a very good spirit for fighting and always stand for peace. She is hot too.
Considering Erza's dream at the Tower of Heaven I would say that Erza should be considered as a very power wizard. That dream was more like a vision of what would have become if Erza did loss her life in that episode. So if that dream really was a vision of what might have been then Erza is at the level of the Ten Saint Wizards proving her to be worthy of the name Titania. I believe that Erza is stronger than Natsu but when she said that Natsu would surpass her I believe that if Natsu had a proper motivation he could possible over power her. Though at his present state he could easily be over powered by Erza because of the fact he does well in the category of strength but lacks in the category of intelligence.
Makarov is the Master of Fairy Tail. A member of the Ten Wizard Saints, Makarov has a wide array of magic available to him, and even immensely powerful mages like Gildarts Clive, Laxus Dreyar, Erza Scarlet, and Jura Neekis are afraid of him.
Fairy Law. Enough said.
How is Makarov below Natsu, Laxus, Erza, Jellal, and Gildarts? He's a ' Wizard Saint!
I don't know if I agree with him being under Natsu, Laxus, and Jellal. Overall he's a very powerful mage, he's getting old, and that might affect his magic, but I don't mind it at all. He should be higher than this, though.
He defeated Makarov quite easily. He is clearly stronger than him.
He is the master of grimoire heart and also the second master FT.He defeated makarov with relative ease and he is 12 on the list?.he deserv much more
Hades was powerful enough to defeat Makarov. Enough said.
Alright then here is what a lot of people forget about Hades. One is that he has unlimited magic power when he had his heart. Two If it wasn't for his heart being destroyed then he would have defeated Fairy Tail. And 3 is that it took all of Fairy Tail's Main cast to defeat him.
Igneel is the king of fire dragons and the father of natsu he should be way higher on this list!
He's a dragon. By the way you might not believe me but I am special and I know what's going to happen and if you don't want a spoiler well spoiler alert Igneel knew something like this would happen where all the dragons attack or just anything with a Dragon that's why there are dragonslayer's still even at that age and time he taught NATSU dragonslayer magic so he could take down all those dragons same with all the others because the prophecy is that well that they will have to kill a powerful dragon, not an army of thousands
Whoa whoa. If you're gonna put dragons on here than just let them take all the top spots, especially the KING of the fire dragons. Igneel should be number two. He was the closest to beating Acnologia. Had he not been dormant for so long he might have had a better chance. He needs to be at number 2. The other characters couldn't beat him if they tried. It's insulting for him to be so low on this list. Definitely #2
"Igneel is the king of fire dragons, He is below Mira on this list when I made this post. Why? Igneel even ripped off Acnalogia's arm for goodness sake, but Igneel did lose, that's because he was half-dead. For someone who didn't have a soul that's a pretty fine accomplishment, Makarov's arm got burned by atlas Flame. ATLAS FLAME! Who claimed to be beaten by Igneel many times. Even Erza is higher on this list, Igneel is one of the most kind, powerful dragons that was ever in the anime."
Mirajane and Erza are equally good. But I think she can outshine Erza. If they fought, they might be a draw, or maybe Mira would win. Come on, Erza's Magic doesn't allow her to hurt Mira but Mira can kick the hell out of Erza's ass! Not even Erza's, Laxus', Gildarts', etc. magic is forbidden while Mirajane's magic is! It was mentioned that she destroyed a city like it was nothing. She also has spells that use lightning, water, and other more. She also has the potential to surpass Gildarts and Laxus. I've read the recent manga chapter about Mirajane being able to possess the curse Macro. It says that with Macro, you can control or manipulate living creatures or even corpses. Therefore, she can effortlessly ask Erza, Laxus, Gildarts, or even the most powerful mage to kill themselves if she wants to. I also think she should be awarded as one of the Ten Wizard Saints because she has a massive amount of magic power that isn't normal for mages. Seriously, Mirajane is so underrated. Hiro ...more
Mira has still to show her true power and she said she was holding back when people are around so if she is did use her full power erza would not stand a chance
Mirajane is an extremely powerful Mage with a large array of various types of powerful magical abilities from lightning to darkness. She has an monstrous size of magical power and most fans of FT are unaware that mirajane does not and never has shown her full power... Small scenes of it have been shown but never to her full potential as she hold back when she's around people, because her magic is too volatile and destructive and she would most likely end up hurting he people around her... Normal mages don't their spells being forbidden unless there is a serious reason... Not even gildarts' crash magic is forbidden... She easily destroyed an entire city in a single rampage... Mirajane is not to be taken lightly as a character and deserves much more credit than is given to her normally... Other characters like erza are being compared to her and as erza is a formidable opponent, erza has not shown herself to be MORE powerful than Mira... People base this one the Asuma fight which was ...more
As said before, Mirajane is an extremely powerful Mage who hasn't shown the full extent of her abilities. On top of that we have Macro, a curse which can control other entities, living or dead, by ordering them around. Another factor to my vote is that she hasn't been seen going all out in a fight because, as she said, she can't fight to the fullest when other people are around. Without a doubt, I find her to be more powerful than Erza, who has received more screen time and character development, as well as more feats to back up her plot armor. We really haven't seen that much from Mira yet, but that is just because she hasn't had enough character development or feats, even though she could easily surpass Erza in terms of power and
-don't mind me saying- intelligence. Mira is an amazing character with so much talent, having had a difficult life and traumatic experiences. She is constantly underrated, but has so much potential and power at her disposal. She's undoubtedly one of the ...more
Mirajane is a skilled user of Take Over, a type of Magic which, as the name suggests, allows her to take over the powers and abilities of particular creatures she really "knows". She shares such Magic with her siblings Elfman and Lisanna, something which made them known as the "Take Over Siblings". The particular, signature form she employs is called Satan Soul.
Like Natsu, Gajeel was taught by a dragon to manipulate a particular element into his fighting style: in Gajeel's case, the dragon Metalicana taught him how to use Iron Dragon Slayer Magic. However, as the name implies, his Dragon Slayer Magic deals with iron instead of fire. Just as Natsu eats fire to regain his strength, so can Gajeel eat iron to regain his own. His teeth and jaw muscles are apparently powerful enough to gnaw through solid metal with ease, and he can devour even the Magic-canceling metal of the Dorma Anim. Gajeel's Magic deals with producing multi-sized iron rods as well as changing parts of his body into steel.
Seriously people? He almost beat Natsu when they first met. He defeated Rogue with ease, even when he was possessed with his future self, Gajeel ate his shadows and kicked ass. Does no one remember the iron-shadow roar? Give him some credit
He's just awesome. He can eat metal. (he's practically metal anyway) he ate shadows. Now he has iron shadow dragon mode. Just the best magic!
What, this low. Gajeel is one of the strongest wizards in fairytale. He can easily win against Gray in a fight. He almost beat Natsu when they first met. Gajeel deserves to be 13th. He is such a underrated character. Come on people!
Has great willpower and love for his guild. He will never lose when it really counts.
He defeated rufus easily
He strong plus he the only one in fairy tail team that use ice and also he one of the rarely ice in the series and he never lose I fight so far and he is very skill with the thing he made like swords hammers and etc if he would fight a dragon slayer he would maybe win
He was included in the Top 10 because he is now an Ice Devil Slayer. Therefore, he is now a match for Natsu Dragneel. And, he eats ice too! He also defeated Rufus easily. Before he got his Ice Devil Slayer Magic, we already know that he is a mastered-mage of Ice-Make Magic. So yeah, I thought he is just some normal mage but now he possesses The Ice Devil Slayer Magic which Silver gave him. From what I know, it's one of the rarest magic in Fairy Tail and its ice doesn't melt easily.
You're telling me that Gray, Erza, Laxus, Jellal, and Natsu are stronger than a Wizard Saint?
Even if Gray is now an Ice Devil Slayer, Jura's abilities are much more superior than Gray's, Jura is one of the most powerful wizards in the anime, not the most powerful but he deserves at least in the top tens.
He is one of the ten saint
Laugh out loud, Jura is in 15? Seriously? He must be in Top 10 or whatever, because he is one of the Ten Saints!? Come on people! Vote the correct one who is the strongest!
What God Serena is in lower place. He is the first ranking wizard saint and he must be on top it is obvious his name contains God. Also he knows different dragon slayer magics.
How can Serena be this low? He is the strongest of Ten Wizard Saints, stronger than a founding member of Fairy Tail.
These list is completely wrong god serena easily top 10 mages and no august in top 10 this list is easily the most incorrect one ever
It's a shame to only see such small glimpse of a really great character. We haven't seen much of him. Probably, just probably, hiro's biggest mistake to only show small appearance of him in such an incredible series.
He got defeat just because Memento mori won't work on Natsu and Gray because of PIS.
I do not care about what fanboys will say to me he easily kills Jellal.
Yeah Gray defeat him...but with help of Sting,Rogue and Natsu.And they got lucky because Mard didn't see Gray is still standing,if he see,he would defeat him like he did with dragon slayers.
He was injured and is holding defeated Natsu wanting to finish him.Then Gray appears out of nowhere and hits him with ice devil arrow.And he did not use Memento mori.If he did,he would whoop their asses.
And here's Ultear! Ultear is the founder of Crime Sorciere, along with Meredy, as well as the eldest of the Seven Kin of Purgatory. She's the daughter of your, Gray's teacher, someone who many said to be at the level of a Wizard Saint, like Jellal and Jura. She has Arc of Time, a powerful Lost Magic, and Ice-Make skills as great as her mother. She actually had so much magic power as a child, not only was all the magic power was making her sick, she was considered for the Oracion Seis but rejected due to having so much magic that the Six Prayers spell wouldn't work! She's definitely at Wizard Saint level.
Many forget about her. I personally believe she is top probably third strongest behind mavis & zeref. Her power is immense. As a child she had SO MUCH magic power that she became ill because of it. But rather than removing the overflowing magic power that her mother opted to do, researchers ENHANCED her magic at a very young age which made her even STRONGER. She could probably take on natsu or whoever grown if she was like 5.. Moreover she has many versatile abilities, aside from having her mothers' (who was considered as strong as a wizard saint) Ice make magic, she has countless other magics - name Time magic. She was taught this magic by Hades, who probably believed she would be the only one to be able to utilize it. She was the sole reason everyone was able to beat the dragons.
Ultear can use Arc of Time allowing her to make destroyed things, like her crystal ball, return to normal and turn Gray's ice into water. She is also exceptionally skilled at Ice-Make Magic.
She should be much higher than #18. She should at least be #8 in my opinion. She has IMMENSE magic power, enough to give her a fever at such a young age! And then it was INCREASED FURTHER. She uses Time arc, which controls the time of both organic and inorganic objects. It is a pretty darn useful and powerful form of lost magic. Also her ice-make magic is also quite impressive. She is the leader of the Seven Kin and is daughter of your, whose Ice-make magic put her at wizard saint! Not to mention she saved countless people during the GMG. She is with no doubt, one of the strongest wizards in Fairy Tail.
How is August this low? GILDARTS couldn't beat him.
He almost destroyed all of fiore. He would have if he hadn't seen his mother and stopped.
I'm assuming the low rank is a result of him not appearing in the anime yet. Nevertheless, August is by far one of the strongest mages in the entire series. Personally, I'd rank him fourth (probably) but he still might stand a chance against the top 3 in a battle.
He is stronger than zeref...but not immortal
Apparently, Zeref is so strong that he is here on this list twice.
Zeref is the strongest person in fairy tail he can kill anything he wants to kill and he is the one who taught Mavis magic! So why is he the 26 strongest?
He's already number one. Go away.
Pfft seriously? Because THERE'S MUCH DIFFERENCE between Zeref DRAGNEEL and Zeref himself! *gasp* the LAST NAME CHANGES EVERYTHING PEOPLE!
I thinks Wendy is much stronger than Lucy and should be listed at a higher level
Wendy is cool with her wind and healing dragon slayer power
She is the strongest of all the cute tiny little girls in Fairy Tail and she has an adorable smile!
Wendy is a Dragon Slayer. She could be as strong as Natsu or Gajeel one day. Her power surely over ranks Lucy and she should be placed higher. Wendy is capable of healing and increasing the power of others. She is amazingly strong for only being 12 so imagine how powerful she'll be when she's older.
After the final season of fairy tail comes out, she and August will definitely be in the top 5. She invented dragon slayer magic.
To be fair this list was made long before she came around, so...that explains how underrated she is
Strongest woman. No contest.
Irene is the strongest woman in the 12 along with the strongest male member August. She should be higher. She stood up against Acnologia and that's an incredible feat!
Juvia is an extremely skilled user of Water Magic. It allows her to produce, control, and manipulate water. She can use the water in a variety of different ways, such as producing blades of water that can even slice through solid rock and metal, or forming waves of tremendous power and force to damage her opponents, or even trapping opponents in mini-prisons made of her water. Juvia also has the ability to turn into water, seemingly without thought, thus allowing both physical and magical attacks to pass through her without harming her.
If Gray where to say that this world and everything in it was the reason he hated life and was gonna commit suicide Juvia would destroy the world and everything in it. she is so powerful when they met Merdy and she was beating both Juvia and Erza easily... then she threatened gray that was her first mistake her second was thinking she could then stop Juvia even though she went from knocked out to ERZA saying I'll leave this to you because she knew she was no match but Juvia is when gray is threatened she even passes out but comes to just because of his voice then chases them NO LIMITS to her power so how is she 18 come on
Oof, come on, what are you guys babies? Its not a "top 10 favorites" list or something, just get real for a while. Juvia Lockser, okay, what is she even doing here? (obviously stalking Gray to be honest).
Her element or magic is water, duh, it's nothing in front of others. I basically think she is weaker than Lucy, Loke, Wendy, Chelia..yeah even the kids.
She stands on the same level as Levi, both blue haired dorks chasing awesome guys. At least Levi's looks are acceptable, than here comes our water mage, totally creepy with frizzy hair and blank eyes. Not to mention her 'white' skin tone. She's all about impressing Gray n random crap.
She doesn't deserve to be in this list AT ALL, where LEGENDS like your, Kagura and other powerful wizards like Rogue, Sting and Wendy are below her. Geez, it doesn't make any sense.
Everybody's commenting here like "She's extremely powerful" and "She's underrated" blah blah blah. But just think for a while, she never came up with any good ...more
I was a little disappointed that she didn't make at least ten on this list, due to showing of her powers, Juvia has become well rounded and strong since her first appearance (which was already outstanding) being able to deflect physical attacks, AND had have such a strong magic power already, should've gotten her on 10 or above on his list. (This is just my opinion though.)
She Should be number one, because she is number one badass, and I want so grab her boobs
Ultear's mother, and the woman who taught Gray and Lyon all of their Magic, your was immensely powerful. Some even saw her as being capable of becoming one of the Ten Wizard Saints. Your had many powerful Ice-Make spells, which she passed down to Ultear. As a last resort, she could even use the Iced Shell.
Okay. Ultear's mother, Gray's teacher, and they're all ahead of her. Seriously...
She was close to becoming one of the ten wizard saints though...
Even though Warrod is the 4th Wizard Saint, he himself stated that it is just a title and that he wields no powerful offensive capabilities.
Nononononono he's so powerful though
I don't more of Warrod, but I think he's strong because it is clearly stated that he was the one of the founder of the Fairytail's guil.
Warrod was one of the founding members of Fairy Tail. At one point, he was seen relaxing with his eyes closed when he was approached by Precht and an unidentified Mage, with the latter asking him whether he was spacing out again. Noticing the finished guild building, the three of them, along with Mavis, took a souvenir photo, commemorating the birth of the Fairy Tail Guild. 
After his retirement, Warrod traveled to the deserts around the world in an attempt to afforest them with his Green Magic. At one point, he reached the Sun Village just to find out that it had been frozen.
