File:FT Team Natsu 2852.png

The main group of protagonists in the series. The team initially consists of Natsu, Happy and Lucy, but Gray and Erza join the team after tagging along a number of times. The team has no official name, so Team Natsu is what the American fanbase has decided to call them.




Natsu Dragneel

File:FT Natsu 6643.png

The main male protagonist of the series, also known as "Salamander." He was raised by the dragon Igneel to become the Fire Dragon Slayer, giving him the power to breathe, attack with, defend against, and even eat fire. He was abandoned after Igneel mysteriously disappeared on July 7, 777, seven years before the series began. He has since joined Fairy Tail in the hopes of reuniting with Igneel and finding out what happened. He's generally regarded as Fairy Tail's problem child, but no one is more loyal to the guild than he is.

Young Natsu is voiced by: MAKO (Japanese) and Luci Christian (English)

 Natsu: Messin' with Fairy Tail is the biggest mistake you've ever made!!!

  • Leeroy Jenkins: Is impatient and overly-enthusiastic, so he likes to chase off the enemies on his own.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Very fast + Resistant to load of punishments + hits real hard.
  • Manly Tears
  • Me's a Crowd: He gets turned into an army of miniature versions of himself (all of whom even bicker with each other) as the result of one of Gildarts's attacks.
  • No Social Skills: Being raised by a dragon will do this to you. Though he gets better over time.
  • Normally I Would Be Dead Now
  • OOC Is Serious Business: If Natsu holds a grudge against anybody, it's a sure sign of how utterly pissed off he is at what they've done. An example is when he's still pissed at Jellal after his return for making practically his sister cry.
  • Parental Abandonment: In search of Igneel since he disappeared.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Destroys a town in the very first chapter/episode, and everything around him in general. All Fairy Tail wizards do this, but he is by far the worst.
  • Playing with Fire: His magic's main ability.
  • Raised By A Dragon: He is rather ignorant of how the real world works sometimes, mostly in the "girls" department, due to his upbringing by Igneel.
  • Really Seven Hundred Years Old: Could be the reason why he couldn't leave the guild in the Laxus Arc (that or a stone statue), since a barrier was set around the building that wouldn't let anyone above the age of 80 to pass through. It would also explain how Zeref, a 400-year-old, knows him.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: When he gets dangerous.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: With Gray the ice-wizard. Guess which one's which. Forms one with Gajeel as well
  • Running Gag: His severe motion sickness.
  • Scarf of Asskicking: One of his trademarks. He received it from Igneel, and he is very attached to it.
  • Scars Are Forever: Has one on his neck. According to the third OVA, he accidentally scratched himself as a child while trying to fend off his future (i.e. present) self).
  • Screaming Warrior: Shounen protagonist, what do you expect?
  • Shipper on Deck: Attempted to ship Erza/Jellal.
  • Ship Tease: With Lisanna and Lucy.[1]]
  • Shock and Awe: Laxus transfers all his magic power to Natsu.
  • Signature Move: Karyu no Tekken (Fire Dragon's Iron Fist)
  • Slasher Smile: He sports this on a occasions.
  • Sleep Cute: Lampshaded by Lucy.
  • Tears of Fear: He broke down after only being glared at by Gildarts during the Tenrou Island Arc.
  • Theme Naming: Hiro Mashima's lead always gets a season-based name. His means summer.
  • True Companions: He is a dead-serious believer in this.
  • Unstoppable Rage: His magic increases in strength with the strength of his emotions; getting him entirely pissed off is not the best idea.
  • Use Your Head: He did it once or twice.
  • Victorious Childhood Friend: Sadly subverted, then double subverted. The only girl who got close enough to even like him was supposedly killed some time before the series began. Then she's revealed in the Edolas Arc to be alive after all, and she gave no shortage of affection to him once they were reunited for real.
  • Volleying Insults: Usually with Gray.
    • Tsurime Eyes: One of Gray's many insulting nicknames for him.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: His trademark vest doesn't cover much, though he actually does wear shirts and jackets from time to time. Possibly Justified in that he doesn't get cold due to his magic.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: His motion sickness, which is sensitive enough to activate if a human being carries him or a stationary raft. Only traveling by Happy seems to be able to circumvent this. Also that one Legion in Edolas. His reason being he considers Happy and the Legion to be friends, not transportation.
    • It seems as though this is a problem for all Dragon Slayer users, as this page demonstrates.
  • When All You Have Is a Hammer: Many of his battles have him trying to figure out how to beat an opponent who can counter his usual style, and he ends up winning by new applications of the same style. Noticeably, he can use other spells, as shown in an omake chapter--he just doesn't.
  • The Worf Effect: He often struggles/loses against the Big Bad's underlings and extremely powerful wizards, thus keeping him from becoming a Boring Invincible Hero, most notably against Fukurou and Aria. Laxus and Erza have also beaten him a few times. This may be because he doesn't fight quite as seriously as he should against these guys, but when much more is on the line, which especially happens against an arc's Big Bad, that's when he gets serious.
  • Would Hit a Girl: After all, Natsu is a Blood Knight and if he thinks one of his rivals can give him a good battle, he probably doesn't even notice their gender. For example, Erza, the strongest female member of Fairy Tail, is the person he probably has challenged to a fight the most times. He also gave Ultear a good beating on Galuna Island though she was transformed into an old man at that time (when he fought her later on Tenrou Island, he didn't get the chance to beat her before the battle was interrupted). And the trope is sort of lampshaded in Fighting Festival where Natsu thinks it is just a tournament to find out who is the strongest and not a battle of life and death. He is disappointed of being let out of the festival, so when some of the girls of the Fairy Tail are de-petrified within his reach, he is more than eager to fight them. Happy reminds him that it's probably not a good idea to pick fight with girls, but Natsu says that guys or girls have nothing to do with that.
  • You Gotta Have Pink Hair: Though it's actually an Adaptation Dye Job, as in the manga his hair is a slightly duller, redder color (but still pink).
  • You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry
  • Zero-Approval Gambit: Passes himself off as the Great Demon Lord Dragneel responsible for the loss of magic in Edolas, which causes its residents to mistake it for the end of the world, all so that Mystogan can defeat him and avert a mass panic.

Lucy Heartfilia

File:FT Lucy 6965.png

The main female protagonist of the series. She is a celestial wizard who uses magic keys to summon spirits from another world. She was born into a wealthy family, but ran away from home to join Fairy Tail. She gets her wish when she bumps into Natsu at the start of the series, though her new guild's insane antics prove to be more than she can handle at times.

Voiced by: Aya Hirano (Japanese) and Cherami Leigh (English)


  • Action Girl: No, really. She actually wins most of her fights. She's just not as itching to fight as some other folks are. She also relies less on her celestial spirits and more on her agility and whip than you might expect.
  • Adult Fear: During her battle with Flare Corona, Flare uses Asca Connell as a hostage and tells Lucy not to do anything lest something happens to the little girl.
  • Apocalypse Maiden: Maybe. She is apparently the key to the Eclipse Plan, except we don't know what that is and what that would mean.
  • Badass Adorable: Lucy slowly grows into this, considering she is friends with 10 out the 12 most powerful summoned critters in the Fairy Tail universe, to say nothing of everything she's survived (relatively) unharmed. The Edolas version of her, however, most definitely qualifies.
    • She is able to summon 5 of those "most powerful summoned critters" (and Plue) at once (granted they disappeared second later); in the anime, she even summons three more. To compare, another summoner has boasted how she herself is able to use 2 spirits at once.
    • The "Fleuve d'étoiles" helps her to prove that she is.
    • Bickslow beat Gray (who got taken down shielding an Innocent Bystander). Lucy beat Bickslow (with Loke's help).
    • She would have won her battle against Flare had it not been for Obra's intervention.
  • Badass Bookworm: She's actually pretty smart, the Daybreak arc being a good example. Also she's a writer.
  • Bare Your Midriff
  • Bat Deduction: Somehow correctly deduces where Master Mavis' grave is located in the Tenrou Island arc, despite the fact that her logic involved a Wiki Walk through a series of extremely loosely related words (at one point she claims it is suspicious that the word "demise" has two e's).
  • Bathing Beauty
  • Breast expansion: She experiences this courtesy of Brandish's size changing magic.
  • Brown Eyes
  • Butt Monkey: Very unusual for the main heroine.
  • Celibate Heroine: Unlike Natsu, who is just clueless, Lucy avoids love as much as possible. In an omake, she actually chooses her friends over a possible relationship.
    • Subverted. She's actually quite attentive to romance; she just hasn't found the right guy yet. Or has she?
  • Character Development: See Took a Level In Kindness.
  • Conservation of Ninjutsu: Defeats the Naked Mummy guild by herself.
  • The Chick: Though she's far from useless.
  • Clothing Damage: Often.
  • Cosplay Otaku Girl/Instant Cosplay Surprise: A Running Gag is that she often ends up in a cosplay outfit at a most unfortunate moment, and so the magical world views her as this.
    • This is what happens when Mashima decides to stop being subtle.
  • Distressed Damsel: During the Phantom Lord arc. Noticeably, she's rescued rather quickly.
  • Do-It-Yourself Theme Tune: Her seiyuu sings the OVA's ending.
  • Dumb Blonde: Inverted. She has blonde hair, but is actually The Smart Girl of the group. For reference, her battle statistics in the Grand Magic Games rank her as a 5/5 for Intelligence.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: In the anime, Levy wouldn't mind seeing her butt.
    • Erza as well.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: But just with her hair.
  • Foot Focus: Whenever Mashima gets the chance, she'll usually go barefoot in most of the arcs.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Supine.
  • Friend to All Living Things: The celestial spirits often make note of how kind she is to them, even going so far as to think of them as her fellow human beings, due to the rather harsh treatment they often get from their summoners. Four different Zodiac spirits have sought her out because their original contracts were broken and they knew how kind she was.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Almost always after she changes her clothes.
  • Gotta Catch Em All: Not in the traditional sense, but out of the (probable) thousands and thousands of summoning keys there are, only twelve of them are "Golden Celestial Keys." So far, she has ten of them; she has yet to collect Libra or Pisces. The interesting thing about this is, she had five when the series started, and only actively sought out ONE. The rest asked to join her. However, when Yukino tried to give her the keys she refused them.
  • Groin Attack: Pulls this on Jose. He's understandably upset about it.
  • Hair Decorations
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She has blonde hair and is one of the nicest characters in the series.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Lucy isn't nearly as confident in her fighting abilities as she should be, though she does manage to get over any doubts once the fighting actually starts.
  • Heterosexual Life Partners: With Erza. They're practically sisters.
  • Hollywood Dateless: Aquarius constantly teases her on her lack of a boyfriend.
  • I Have No Father: She pulls this on her own father, but after his fall from grace she takes it back.
  • Image Song: Open the Gate.
  • It's All My Fault: She blames herself for Phantom Lord's attack on Fairy Tail, believing that if she hadn't run away from home none of it would have happened. However, the entire guild refuses to believe it's her fault and chooses to stand by her side no matter what. It's the first time Lucy realises how much Fairy Tail care about one another.
  • Just Friends: Poor Lucy has it hard. Mirajane teased Lucy about either being with Natsu or Gray in an omake, Juvia is convinced that Lucy is after Gray, and Happy teased Lucy about being with Loke during the "The Battle of Fairy Tail" arc.
  • Kamehame Hadoken/Wave Motion Gun: Urano Metria.
  • Kick Chick: "Lucy KICK!!!" and "Lucy Fire"
  • The Lancer: Not to Natsu, to Erza. While Erza is the most melee-oriented member and fights up close with swords, Lucy is physically the weakest and fights at long range with a whip and her spirits. On top of this, they both have contrasting backgrounds and personalities.
  • Male Gaze: In the anime, when Gemini-Lucy seduces Taurus, we see the other part of Lucy that can be used for Fan Service.
  • Ms. Fanservice: A large-breasted blonde who consistently wears skimpy outfits, carries a whip, is frequently subject to Clothing Damage, almost always fights other women, is often depicted in cosplay outfits and sometimes maid costumes, is occasionally captured and tied up, and is commonly drawn from provocative angles or with emphasis on suggestive body parts, most recently her feet. Basically, think of a form of Fetish. Lucy either embodies it or has had or will have it happen to her. Much to her great embarrassment (almost) every time.
  • Most Writers Are Writers: She's writing a book, though she claims to be an amateur. She lets Levy read it due to her own book interests.
  • My Friends and Zoidberg: She's treated this way by everyone but Gray.
  • Narrator: She plays this role from time to time in the manga, with rectangular boxes exposing her point of view on the story and anticipating important events.
  • Never Got to Say Goodbye: With her father. Particularly tragic in this instance, as he had really cleaned up his act and tried to be a better father even while she was missing for seven years. Plus, even though she did make amends and leave on good terms with him the last time they met, Lucy never had the chance to actually say that she loved him until after reading his last letter to her.
  • Not Distracted by the Sexy: Running Gag.
  • Only Sane Woman: Though unlike most examples, she enjoys the sheer wackiness of her guild once she gets used to it. Most of the time, anyways. Ironically, this status means she's frequently called weird by Natsu.
    • Not So Above It All: She has her moments. Her first moment was BEFORE Erza actually made an appearance.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: Well, being a friend of the biggest badasses in series...
  • Panty Shot
  • Parental Abandonment: Her mom died seven years before the start of the story. Now, seven years after the story began, her father has also died. And the poor girl just made up with him...
  • Personality Powers: The Lonely Rich Kid who wants to have friends more than anything else has the ability to summon spiritual allies using gold and silver keys.
  • Plucky Girl: She's no Natsu or Erza, but she's a lot braver and tougher than people give her credit.
  • The Power of Love: Loke claims this is why their bond is strong enough that he can summon himself without using up her magic power. She denies anything of the sort.
  • Reluctant Fanservice Girl: Well, most of the time.
  • The Runaway: Types 1 and 2 combined. Her father was none too pleased, though Fairy Tail is rather fond of her and refuses to let her leave, even if they get killed protecting her.
  • Running Gag: Most gags in the series involve Lucy.
    • A minor one involves her walking along the edge of the sidewalk near a river and being told by a fisherman that its dangerous. She nearly falls in a couple of times.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right: Has a tendency to do this. Early on she does this, and then complains when Natsu pulls a Screw the Money, I Have Rules when they are offered the reward they would've gotten anyways. Later on, she manages to convince the Celestial Spirit King that some rules are too harsh if they would allow an innocent person to die.
  • Secretly Wealthy
  • Shout-Out: She gets her name from The Beatles song "Lucy In The Sky"
  • Shower of Angst: After being defeated due to Obra's interference. She starts feeling much better once she gets out.
  • Shrouded in Myth: Many of Team Natsu's more spectacular deeds end up as being blamed solely on Lucy, and word gets out before she can shift the credit to someone else. The more badass things she does do are mostly only known to the celestial spirits she summons, though her defeating Bickslow and Angel are known to a select few wizards.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Despite her very privileged upbringing, Lucy is one of the most openly compassionate characters in the series.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: To her Hot Mom.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: Most of her attire.
  • Straight Woman: Though she actually enjoys the rowdiness of her guild.
  • Summon Magic: Apparently a very great summoner, though her magic reserves are low so summoning multiple spirits in a fight is more tiring for her than other wizards.
  • Supporting Protagonist: Arguably the main character despite Natsu's heroic tendencies.
    • According to Word of God on who the main female protagonist is, much to her and Erza's ire.

  "IT'S NOT OKAY."

  • Take Our Word for It: Apparently, Lucy's underwear is so sexy that it gets a Head-Tiltingly Kinky reaction from everyone who sees it, especially Erza.
  • That Makes Me Feel Angry: Raven Tail greets Fairy Tail by hospitalizing Wendy and subjecting Gray to a humiliating defeat at the Grand Magic Tournament. Lucy is not cool with stuff like that.
  • Temporal Paradox: In the third OVA, Lucy goes back in time with her friends and stops a runaway horse-drawn carriage with a little girl inside. Unbeknownst to her, the little girl was her past self, who never notices it was her future self who saved her. The only glimpse she got of her savior was the Fairy Tail guildmark on her hand, ultimately inspiring Lucy to join Fairy Tail in the first place, and perhaps even to put the mark on her own hand.
  • Tender Tears
  • The Smart Girl: After Wendy joins the group, since Wendy's more of a Chick than she is.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly Girl to Erza's Tomboy, though this only by comparison.
  • Took a Level In Badass: She's a competent enough fighter to hold her own in a fight at the start of the series, but gradually becomes more badass with each spirit she obtains. Her levels skyrocket when: she temporarily summons all her spirits at once to prove a point across to the almighty Celestial Spirit King; she gets her hands on the "Fleuve des étoiles" whip, giving her all sorts of mobility; and, as a result of getting powered up by Ultear, she gains the ability to not only summon two of her strongest spirits at the same time without getting tired, but also to combine their attacks, allowing her to put her enemies on the ropes in ways she was never able to do before.
  • Took a Level In Kindness: It's subtle, but at the start of the series, she's something of a self-centered Jerk with a Heart of Gold who, while caring towards her spirits and friends, is more inclined to take jobs for the reward (mainly rent money) than actually helping people. Come the Grand Magic Games, when she's had plenty of experiences and collected ten of the twelve Zodiac keys, she becomes much more considerate of others. She even declines celestial wizard Yukino's offer to give Lucy the remaining two Zodiac keys until she feels Yukino is ready to part with them. In fact, Lucy acknowledges that if she were like the way she was when she first joined Fairy Tail, she would have taken the keys without question, just for the sake of having all twelve.
  • Ugly Guys Hot Daughter
  • Weak but Skilled: She's not strong but she has the tendency to put whatever tools she has at her disposal to good use. Being The Smart Girl definitely helps too.
  • Whip It Good: She carries a whip on her at all times in order to defend herself rather than using her spirits for the job instead. She is skilled at it though.
    • During the Edolas arc, she received the "Fleuve des étoiles", a magical and extendable whip from Virgo, and showed that she could be quite awesome with it, even without a spirit at her side. As of the Tenrou Island arc, it appears to have replaced her regular whip.
      • For those that don't speak French, that's "River of Stars"
      • Making a Splash
  • Woman in White: Her attire towards the end of the Tenrou Island arc, courtesy of Virgo.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Lucy finishes off Sherry with a clothesline during the Galuna Island arc.
  • Wreathed in Flames: Used by Natsu on Mr. Cursey with her hair attached to it to defeat Kain.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Usually after Virgo brings her clothes from the celestial spirit world.

Happy

File:FT Happy 7500.png

Natsu's animal partner, a happy-go-lucky talking blue cat who can grow wings and fly. Ever since Natsu hatched him from an egg he found, he's been inseparable from Natsu.

Voiced by: Rie Kugimiya (Japanese) and Tia Ballard (English)


    • He also ships Erza/Jellal.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: To his mother.
  • Talking Animal
  • Team Pet: His only role on the team seems to be carrying around Natsu, although he shares the role of The Smart Guy with Lucy sometimes. And he can be quite useful in a fight; for example, Happy grabbed Kain Hikaru's voodoo doll when he was fighting Lucy and Natsu, which was essential in his defeat. He has some Team Dad elements as well.
  • Trilling Rs: His second catch phrase.
  • Token Non-Human: The only member of the actual team who is obviously not human, though Lucy's spirits run the gamut between human and anything but.
    • Later he's joined in the position by Carla.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Fish.
  • Tyke Bomb: Part of his backstory...or not. It seems at first that he was sent to Earthland by the Exceeds to capture Natsu and bring him to Edolas, which he supposedly forgot about. Then it's revealed that this was never the Exceeds' intention; Carla created the mission for herself without realizing it.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Happy annoys Lucy more than anyone else in the group, but the two are still shown to be great friends.
  • Whale Egg: Happy can talk and grow wings...because he hatched out of an egg. Yeah.
  • Wild Card Excuse: His answer to questions such as "Why are you blue?", "Why can you fly?", or "How come you can talk?" is always "Because I'm a cat!" cheerfully and likely intentionally ignoring the fact that these questions are because he is a cat.
  • Winged Cat: His brand of magic, which is inherent in his species, the Exceeds.

Gray Fullbuster

File:FT Gray 6534.png

A wizard whose magic, Ice Make, lets him create ice and mold it into any form he desires. This magic is also the source of a fierce rivalry with Natsu, a fire wizard. He learned ice magic from the wizard Ur, who he also got his unhealthy stripping habit from. As a child, he tried taking vengence against Deliora, the demon that destroyed his hometown, but his overconfidence cost his teacher her life, and he's tried to remain level-headed ever since.

Voiced by: Yuuichi Nakamura (Japanese) and Newton Pittman (English)
Young Gray is voiced by: Eri Kitamura (Japanese) and Ryan Reynolds (English)

  • Almighty Janitor: Like Natsu, he's much more powerful and skilled than his rank implies. The fact that he's not as prominent as either Erza or Natsu helps him, as opponents are often surprised at his abilities.
  • Accidental Pervert: Desperate to in any way stop Juvia's attack, he reaches out an freezes her...only to discover his hand on her breast.
  • An Ice Person: Noted to be a highly skilled ice wizard.
  • Badass Biker: The two times he gets to ride one. See Chekhov's Skill below.
  • Badass Baritone
  • Badass Longcoat: Quite often seen wearing a white one. It's bound to disappear eventually.
  • Battle Strip: Loses his shirt most of the time.
  • BFG: His Ice Make Cannon.
  • Bloody Murder: Freezes his own blood in order to combat Ultear.
  • Chekhov's Skill: Gray is known for stripping almost bare in a matter of seconds. This comes in handy against Sugarboy, when he slips out of his jacket to avoid being stabbed.
    • During the same fight, one may wonder why Gray is so proficient at motorcycle riding. It's because he had to do it before against Racer.
  • Covert Pervert: Usually a pretty level-headed and serious guy, but he can't help but offer to ice down Lucy's butt, gets distracted by Virgo's underwear, and in chapter 244 is the only one to actually think "Wendy's naked only ten feet away from me".
    • He's not fooling anyone when protesting that he's only peeking in the baths because Natsu is.
  • Expy: To Musica from Rave Master. Case in point, he manipulates a malleable element, and always wears a silver necklace (which also happens to look like the first Rave).
    • Filler seems to enjoy driving this point home. He does a Unison Raid with Juvia to combine their powers, which is basically the same thing as Silver Bond, which Musica did with Reina.
  • Fake Defector: In the anime-only Daphne filler arc.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Phlegmatic.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: The three scars on his forehead and abdomen.
    • Scars Are Forever: He got the first one in the Galuna Island arc, and it's been there ever since. The second one was also from the Galuna Island arc, but seemed to appear and disappear before he gets the third one fighting Ultear, and from then on both of them are drawn consistently in an X-shape.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Attempted twice in the Galuna Island arc, before getting some sense literally punched into him.
  • Image Song: Frozen Soul, True Pride.
  • It's Personal: Multiple times, as a matter of fact. First is against Deliora, who destroyed his hometown and killed his family. Second is against Lyon, who tries resurrecting said demon, thus threatening to not only undo the sacrifice Ur made to seal it away, but also essentially killing Ur since it's her living body that had been keeping the demon sealed. Third is against Ultear, who is practically Gray's stepsister and has done plenty of evil stuff while badmouthing her mother Ur. Fourth is against both Raven Tail and Rufus of Sabertooth, both of whom subject him to a humiliating defeat at the start of the Grand Magic Games.
  • The Lancer: To Natsu, since they rarely cooperate but Natsu is probably stronger.
  • Magic Knight: While Erza fits more on the Knight side, Gray is a bit more magical, but his fighting style is different from Natsu's.
  • Manly Tears
  • Megane: In the crossover with Flunk Punk Rumble.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Good looking and cool, in addition to his tendency to strip subconsciously. Possibly Lampshaded with his stalker, Juvia, and freely stated by his creator, who admits to covering Gray's past first to try and increase the number of female fans.
    • Racer calls him a "lady killer" at one point, for no apparent reason but to highlight this.
  • Multi Melee Master/Multi Ranged Master: Or more. His ice usually takes the form of different weapons, though it's not limited to that.
  • Naked People Are Funny: His subconscious stripping is a Running Gag.
  • Number Two: Serves as this for Erza, being the most level-headed member of the team, and often leads in Erza's absence while Natsu... runs off by himself.
  • Oblivious to Love: He doesn't seem to notice Juvia's flirting too much, and when he does he ignores it. They do interact quite frequently but he treats her the same as Lucy or Erza. Unfortunately, Juvia thinks he's gay for Lyon. This might be going away after the Time Skip, however. When Lyon puts his arm around Juvia, Gray freaks out and says "Don't just take what's mine!" That's not the sort of talk you hear about a platonic friend.
    • And in chapter 282 his reaction suggests that he isn't as oblivious to Juvia's feelings as he seems.
  • Parental Abandonment: His parents were killed by Deliora.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: He's the blue oni to Natsu's red oni.
  • Reluctant Fanservice Guy
  • Revenge Before Reason: The reason why he is now masterless.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal: Delivers one to Ultear by punching her in the face with ice magic.
  • The Rival: Is a friendly one to Natsu. He also has Lyon, the old pupil of his mentor.
  • Ship Tease: So far he's had some with Juvia, Erza, Lucy, Ultear, and even Cana if you squint. This was lampshaded in one chapter cover when a magazine reporter saw him drinking coffee with Mirajane and immediately assumed they were an item.
  • Spontaneous Weapon Creation
  • Straight Man: Not as much as Lucy, but it's there sometimes.
  • Training From Hell: It was actually much colder than hell.
  • Tsundere: A mild version, but the traits are there sometimes, especially towards Natsu. A prominent example is during the Lullaby arc where he quietly tells Natsu not to die and denying it a second later, cluing into the fact that the two of them don't really hate each other as much as they claim. Moments like that continue to occasionally pop up throughout the series.
  • Volleying Insults: With Natsu.
    • Tareme Eyes: One of the many insults Natsu has for him.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: He strips whenever he gets serious. He also strips when it would be funny. He doesn't even realize he's doing it, because he's so used to being cold.
  • Would Hit a Girl/Would Hurt a Child: He clearly stated that it wouldn't matter if his opponent was a woman or even a child; he would show no mercy to those who hurt his friends. So far, the latter has never been applied, but the former has been played straight.


Erza Scarlet

File:FT Erza 9447.png

An S-Class wizard and the strongest female in Fairy Tail, also known as "Titania Erza, Queen of the Fairies." Her magic is called "The Knight," which lets her requip various weapons and pieces of armor instantly. Her traumatic childhood experience as a slave forced to build the Tower of Heaven has hardened her into a very serious young woman who doesn't tolerate her teammates fooling around and breaking the guild rules, though she slowly warms up to them over time.

Voiced by: Sayaka Ohara (Japanese) and Colleen Clinkenbeard (English)


"It's not that I was protecting everyone...I was the one always being protected."

  • Heterosexual Life Partners: With Lucy. They're practically sisters.
  • Hidden Depths: Is a really good gambler.
  • Hot Amazon: When she was presented in a showing of Fairy Tail's members and their capabilities, an audience member actually said, "Marry me, Titania!"
  • Humble Heroine: She's one of the five most powerful wizards in Fairy Tail, said to have strength similar to that of a Wizard Saint and became one of the youngest S-Class wizards ever when she was fifteen, and yet Erza has shown time and time again that she doesn't view herself as more special or important than anyone else in the guild. She's perfectly willing to let Evergreen use her nickname "Titania", saying she doesn't even know who gave her that name in the first place.

Erza: All I have ever wanted is the strength to protect those I hold close to my heart. I would give up all my strength if I could still guarantee their safety.

 Happy: "That's Erza for you."

 Sol: A lead pipe?!?

Totomaru: From where?

 Wendy Marvell

The Sky Dragon Slayer, also known as the "Sky Maiden." She was raised by the dragon Grandine in the art of healing magic, though she can also use her magic for combat purposes such as breathing gusts of wind. She is introduced as a representative of the Cait Shelter guild during the alliance against Oración Seis, but joins Fairy Tail after learning her old guild doesn't actually exist. Seems to have become a permanent, though unofficial, member of Team Natsu by time.

  • A-Cup Angst: Her reaction to Reedus' future drawing of her. It doesn't help when she met the Edolas version of herself.
  • Action Girl: Though it takes a while for her to become one.
  • All-Loving Heroine: She's one of the few Fairy Tail members who doesn't enjoy fighting (to the point of trying to avoid it whenever possible) and generally sees the best in everyone. However, this is not always a good thing (see Horrible Judge of Character below).
  • Badass Adorable: She's really cute and eventually becomes just as Badass.
  • Blow You Away: Just started learning her offensive spells.
  • Character Development: She’s easily one of the most developed characters Fairy Tail has to offer. Wendy was introduced as a shy, meek little girl, prone to crying at times, and without a shred of fighting skills. However, after taking part in numerous battles, overcoming endless challenges, and powering through all the conflicts that her guild undergoes, she’s become someone else entirely. No longer a shy, weak little girl, she’s now grown into an extremely prodigious mage, as well as a very competent Combat Medic, who won’t back down from a fight, and, if necessary, will raise hell on the battlefield for the sake of her guild.
  • The Chick: Takes over this role from Lucy when she joins the team.
  • Child Mage
  • Combat Medic: Is shaping up to be this.
  • Cute Little Fangs: Comes with being a Dragon Slayer. See here!
  • Doesn't Like Pickled Plums: Loke and Gray used this to defeat her in the anime version of the S-Class exam.
  • Dojikko
  • Foil: One could say she serves as one to Gajeel. Wendy’s kind, humble, and pacifistic, while Gajeel’s gruff, initially arrogant, and nothing short of a Blood Knight. Wendy, after being left by Grandine, simply wanted to find her again, while Gajeel grew bitter and claimed not to care about Metalicana. Wendy’s magic is about healing and support, while Gajeel’s is about combat and destruction. Wendy mastered her Dragon Force, while Gajeel mastered his Dual Element mode. Wendy’s first interaction with Fairy Tail was helping them as part of the alliance, while Gavel's first interaction with the Guild was attacking it. Wendy was very keen to meet Natsu because he was also a Dragon Slayer, while Gajeel disliked him all the more for the very same reason.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She was adamant that they warn the Exceeds of Faust's plan to destroy them, regardless of how cruel and callous they appeared. And just look at what she did to Hiroshi for attacking one of the frozen giants.
  • Glass Cannon/Lightning Bruiser: She's still too inexperienced for us to differentiate yet but one thing's certain: Wendy packs a punch.
  • Healing Hands
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: At first, she had very little confidence in her abilities, and was quick to blame herself when things went wrong. However, after gaining more combat experience, and coming into her own as a fighter, she largely grows out of it.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Somewhat debatable. She partnered with Mest for the S-Class Trials, despite him clearly being a little off, and was even eluded to being a member of Grimoire Heart for a few chapters. But, as it turns out, he's actually a good person, so it's possible that she was simply right about him all along.
    • Played straight with the Jiggle Butt Gang, as she was completely convinced they were good men inside when they really.... aren't.
  • Image Song: "Amazing Blessings"
  • Little Miss Badass
  • Mystical Waif: Has elements of this, including a mysterious past, bad guys wanting her (in the case of Brain), non-action status, bit of a Distressed Damsel, purehearted and kind, and The Medic.
  • Meaningful Name: Wendy can sound like Windy
    • Originally, she was going to be the Water Dragon Slayer, with her name becoming a pun on Wensday (In japanese, Mizuyobi or "Water Day").
  • Older Than They Look: She is 12 and not 6 or 7 as her picture might imply. Especially in her introduction arc, she has the body proportions of a very young child. That changes later on due to Art Evolution, and she gets a more long-legged stature, but she keeps her child-like face. Proportions aside, she is also very short, only reaching teenage girls Lucy and Erza to the waist. After being frozen for seven years, she's a 19-year-old in the body of a child.
  • Parental Abandonment: Like Natsu and Gajeel, the dragon Grandine left her without a word.
  • Poke the Poodle: She can't be scary no matter how hard she tries. Gajeel has to do it for her.
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Red Baron: She's known as the "Sky Maiden."
  • Shout-Out: She bares some resemblance to Azu-nyan when she gets into her Edolas clothes, complete with pigtails.
  • Shrinking Violet: Is introduced this way, but once she joins Fairy Tail, she starts to grow out of it.
  • Shy Blue-Haired Girl
  • Status Buff: Her Sky Dragon Slayer magic is very practical because of this.
  • Tender Tears
  • The Medic: One of very few, and probably the best.
  • Token Mini-Moe
  • Tomato Surprise: Cait Shelter is just an illusion created by the long-dead master, Roubaul. This leads to her joining Fairy Tail.
  • What Could Have Been: At first she was stated to be the Water Dragon Slayer.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair
  • Zettai Ryouiki: In the entire Edolas arc, along with Girlish Pigtails.

Wendy's beloved pet. She is of the same species as Happy, a talking cat who can grow wings and fly. Unlike Happy, she was born with knowledge of what she and Happy really are- Exceeds sent from the parallel world of Edolas--thanks to her ability to foresee the future.
