Zeref is love, Zeref is live

Zeref is my dad


Just an overall fantastic character. Plus, if he could fully control his powers without all the damn contradiction, he'd be practically unstoppable. Pretty much is already.

2 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.

Seriously, no comments? Geez, what time has come.
Jellal possesses the heavenly body magic, earth magic, fire magic(watch oracio'n seis arc) and many many more kinds of magic. He's smart and always comes with the clever tips and ideas.
He's greatly dedicated to his aim which is Awesome!
Also, he's a wizard saint...enough said already.

Jellal is smart, good looking and powerful

He killed god Serena, wiped out the tenrou team, scared Zeref, beat Irene, and killed ’ dragons! He is the strongest dragon slayer and can turn into a dragon

4 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.

Because he has a brain to use during the battle, apart from plot armour. Also I loved the concept of lost memory element.

I would say he is way stronger than Natsu! He has been able to defeat many villians and has gotten much more powerful now that he has Devil Slayer Magic. He is hotter and more laid back than Natsu too. He also doesn't depend on friendship all of the time to power him up in fights! He is my favorite character in the whole series! He is the most developed character in the entire series by far. For god's sake, he is the only one who can defeat END because of his Devil Slayer Magic! I love his style, for sure should be higher on this list at least Top 3!

He is definitely stronger than Natsu, that's why he is Natsu's rival, to Natsu he represents an end goal, an achievement. Become stronger than his rival because Gray is stronger than Natsu.

Then the Devil Slayer magic comes into play and gives Natsu an even bigger drive to better himself.

He is certainly stronger than Jellal, like that isn't even a debate. Jellal wouldn't stand a chance in hell, only having the advantage in Speed and nothing else. (if you take away bad writing)

He is honestly more of a Laxus level Character in terms of ho powerful he is but I don't think that he is stronger than Laxus in his base form/Magic, Devil Slayer magic whilst shown to be pointless to the plot has clearly superiour to dragon slayer magic and debatable(ly) equal to God Slayer magic.

Unless you are a blind hater of this character like Axel xXx (Gajeel's Number one Fanboy) then it isn't hard to see that Gray shines as one of the best and strongest characters in the ...more

What! He is stronger than natsu.Why is he in 6th place? at least he should in top 3.

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.

Natsu is stronger then gray and could defeat zeref I don't know why he is #5

They shouldn't be on the top because antsy killed all of them

Ok come on this guys alright in my opinion but I can’t ignore his power, the number 1 wizard saint is weaker than Lyon nope not at all

16 Larcade Dragneel Larcade Dragneel

His magic may be... uncomfortable, but it’s extremely dangerous and strong if you think about it. While it was played off as more of a joke it was strong enough to affect a ton of people around the whole of Fiore including Eileen and Zeref. It wasn’t until latter told him to stop that he did otherwise he would have oneshotted them all including Gildarts and Laxus. This is without him specificaly targeting them. Soul of the wicked meal makes people canibalistic to the point where you are willing to eat your loved ones. And finally R.I.P puts you into a permantent slumber where you are unable to wake up for enternity.
The only people who could take him out are probably Zeref, August, Eileen, Acnologia and Sting. And only Sting because his magic is purely holy/light and Sting still had to get an exteme power up. People as strong Natsu probably would be defeated by Larcade consdering he almost R.I.Ped him while practially half dead.

He maybe somewhat of a joke compared to the other spriggan but like the rest of the sprighan, I could see him soloing the entire Balam alliance if the conditions were in his favour (enchanted, able to summon spriggan historia along with others...). His primary magic is quite powerful in an interesting way as doesn’t solely rely on the the strength of the historia but also the emotional impact it has on his opponents (ie. Lyon and Gray facing your).
