Most Underrated Fairy Tail Characters

The Top Ten

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.

NO.He was actually overly overrated,just like his girlfriend.

This just goes to show that the entire fanbase is deep-throating Jellal... Those idiots don't even realize that Jellal is just a cheap knock-off of Luke Castellan.

Jellal is disgustingly overrated, him being at the top of this list just makes it more of a fact. He is only liked because of his looks and because Erza wants to bang him. The amount of fangirls saying that he is in The Top 10 Strongest Characters or one of the most important characters is insulting. He has barely done something to the plot, he is boring and bland and only stays relevant because of Erza. Hard to accept it but it's the truth, open your eyes people, you can like him yeah sure but come on there's a limit to your bias.

Wha? He's an extremely popular character

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.

Juvia is not underrated. I would say she's more overrated than underrated. She did convince Meredy to not kill herself and killed Keyes, one of Nine Demon Gates of Tartaros, but that's pretty much it. - MirajaneStrauss

She was one of Phantom Lord's S-class mages and one of Element Four members. I personally believe that she might be more powerful than Gray at the time she first joined Fairy Tail ( Gray's the obvious stronger one now though ). Many people forgot that she was a S-class mage and just think that she's Gray's stalker, but Juvia's more than that. She's a really kind-hearted girl and deeply cares for her friends. - Goku02

You've just gotten some seriously boosted opinion from me, because you're actually really accurate with this

Nah, she is more like overrated! - Crystalsnow

Ultear Milkovich

It seems like the entire Crime Sorcière cast is underrated actually. The members are all badasses, but they get almost no screentime at all, with the exception of maybe Jellal and Ultear.
Though she's the oldest member and leader of the Seven Kin of Purgatory, not unlike Jellal, there's always something interfering whenever she fights, for example when she was fighting Gray, she found out the truth about her mother, got emotional and was beaten immediately, then people start saying that Gray's more powerful than her, which is wrong because Ultear's stronger at the time and I believe that she's on par with Erza ( I know that current Gray is stronger, but when they fought, Ultear was ). - Goku02

Shes dead,and now only exists in time.And no,shes not even in top 50 strongest characters.LUCY is actually stronger than she is,and if GOKU02 hadyou bother read the manga,youd see how strong lucy is,and with star dress and urano mentria being stronger,id say shes on par with old natsu.But Ultear was a lot of help when fighting DiMaria.

Freed Justine

Freed's so strong! I hate that he's not in the spotlight very much, he's really tough and such a fun character overall!

I would pick laxus but they didn't even include him in the list but freed is just as underrated in my opinion, the best characters are always ignored in my opinion laxus freed gildarts romeo elfman, like them far more than erza natsu lucy for me and deserved a lot more screen time. so many fantastic characters getting wasted it really is painful

Mirajane Strauss Mirajane Strauss is the elder sister of Lisanna and Elfman, who possesses “Take-Over” magic, which allows her to take shape of animals, other wizards, or her “Satan Soul” forms. Mirajane is also an S-Class wizard who was rivals with Erza Scarlet when they were both young, often challenging her more.

She was Erza's rival during their childhood, and now she rarely fights. So much wasted potential... - Goku02

She is more stronger than Erza in my Opinion - akanichan

But Lucy Heatfilia is very horrible and overrated for being weak and crybaby. WatchMojo should put Sakura Haruno on a list of "Worst Anime Characters".


Her Lost Magic is ultra unique and powerful, yet the author always sidelines her. It's kind of sad really... - Goku02

I'm surprised that she's not first. She's rarely talked about or seen. She's actually the best fairy tail female in my opinion.

Literally the most underrated character in fairy tail.

You barley see anything about her it’s so sad

Ur Milkovich

Right now, she's much stronger than Erza. Come on, she's Gray's and Lyon's master after all... Jellal himself stated that she would be one of the Ten Wizard Saints had she not died. Her Historia self ( much weaker than your herself ) was still able to handle both Gray and Lyon together with ease. - Goku02

Lisanna Strauss

She's not strong, but she's not that weak either. Many people seem to imply that she's a no good character and is a complete fodder in combat. Furthermore, Lisanna gets a lot of baseless hates, mostly from NaLu supporters. I think she's a very sweet and nice girl, her character isn't that significant, but she's not a bad character. - Goku02

Just because you prefer Nalu doesn't mean you should leave a great character with one of the best stories in the show behind!

I personally think people always hate Lisanna for all the wrong reasons. People often hate her because she loves natsu. Is it really a crime to have a crush? Don't get me wrong I ship NaLu. But still, shouldn't people be more worried about Gray stealing Lucy? GrayLu is a way bigger thing than NaLi ever was.

Gajeel Redfox Gajeel Redfox is a fictional character from the anime Fairy Tail. He is the Iron Dragon Slayer. He was an antagonist in his first appearance, fighting main character Natsu Dragneel. He later ended up turning to Fairy Tail's side, and most commonly fights alongside Levy McGarden and Panther-Lily.
Levy McGarden

Though she seems weak, Levy's intelligence has proven very useful to her friends and the guild numerous times. - Goku02

Easily the smartest character in Fairy Tail. Levy Mcgarden is the brains of the Fairy Tail Guild. She's like Shikamaru Nara from Naruto: She might be the weakest, but she is also the smartest.

Finally people understand me. I support Lisanna and your too, but Levy is my favorite. So smart.

The Contenders

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.

Lucy is way overrated. Do you guys think that being the main protagonist in a series is underrated? Because it's not! She has the most screentime from the beginning and end of the series. Is that underrated to you? - MirajaneStrauss

Hiro never really gives her a break. She's always used as fanservice, and that's all people really see her for instead of her magic. They also call Lucy weak and useless even though she saved the guild twice, and closed the Eclipse Gate.

Hiro never let Lucy defeat the enemies by self, which makes her underrated and no one sees her strong. the most underrated Fairy Tail character, ADMIT THAT. - cana_alberona

Lucy's the best character. Fight me.

Cana Alberona

Despite being Gildarts's daughter and having a lot of latent magical power as stated by Mavis, Cana is often overshadowed. - Goku02

Kagura Mikazuchi

She's nearly as strong as Erza, but she's often underrated. - Goku02

Macbeth / Midnight

He's the strongest member of Reborn Oración Seis, but he has little to no screentime at all. - Goku02


True he gets over look very easily

Rogue Cheney

Jellal,Erza and Zeref should not be here.All 3 are disgustingly overrated(Zeref less,but still very overrated).Where is Gray?
Both Gray and Rogue are very underrated.People when making top strongest lists are putting Lucy higher than Rogue,or Gray lower than Erza.And Gray is stronger than both Erza and Jellal I don't care about you fanboys.That guy was tied with half power E.N.D and he almost defeated Zeref but Natsu stop him.


If zeref didn't kill him He Would of surpassed lots of characters because of 7 years of Training and ultear could of gave him his origin thingy which would make him op it took mokorov and natsu to beat him and it was a close battle and he's a Badass

Irene Belserion
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.

ERZA UNDERRATED? That's ridiculous. She's one of the most overrated anime characters in anime history! - Goku02

This list is joke.

Limit fanbase, lacks of fanfiction and fan arts yeh she underrated

Goku02 true.

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 ludicrously overrated, actually. - Goku02

Lyon Vastia
Gildarts Clive
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.

One of the most beautifully written characters in the show! Tragic backstory and an actual reason why he acts the way he does makes his writing good, along with a great personality! I feel like it’s never one-sided when he’s around because instead of hating him because he did bad things, I feel like he has actual reasons why he does the things he does and I can actually see his side of the situation. His relationship with Natsu is interesting and their fight scene was really something! He actually has real character development and that’s something rarely found in antagonist, and he taught himself not to love just because he didn’t want to kill everything because of his curse! The way him, Igneel, and Natsu interacted were interesting, along with his relationship with Mavis! I feel like he’s underrated because people see him to be evil because fairy tail is good, but I think he’s a very neutral character. He is interesting basically every arc he is in and makes me want to ...more - Euphorian

Sherria Blendy

Sherria is the best charecter, (sorry for my spelling! ) yet she is so underrated! For starters, she's a god slayer, and yet plays a minasule role and has little screen time. I feel that she deserves more credit than she gets, and a larger part in the storyline. I do not mean to offended anyone but that is my oppinion.
