Characters: Disney Fairies

    open/close all folders 

    Tinker Fairies 

All Tinker Fairies



Tinker Bell

Fairy Mary


  • The Slacker: Apparently; whenever she's name-dropped it's because she's slacking off work.
  • The Unseen: Never appears onscreen, but Fairy Mary is often calling to her to tell her to stop loafing about and get back to work.

    Animal Fairies 

All animal fairies



  • Ambiguously Brown: Has olive skin, but also freckles and brunette hair. Though considering her Latina voice actress (America Ferrera) also has freckles, it's doesn't mean she's not supposed to be Latina.
  • Breakout Character: Despite being just a standard recurring member of Tink's friends in the films along with the other girls, she's getting her own starring role in The Legend of the Neverbeast, and a new celebrity voice actor in Ginnifer Goodwin.
  • Disney Death
  • Does Not Like Shoes: At least in Great Fairy Rescue and some of the shorts she doesn't.
  • Fluffy Tamer: With Gruff in The Legend of the Neverbeast.
  • Foot Focus: In the short "Volley Bug" there are a couple of closeups of her feet dangling in the air.
  • Tomboy: She's very physical and energetic.
  • Token Minority: Fills the Latina slot in the movies, if her original voice actress (America Ferrera) is anything to go by.

    Light Fairies 

All Light Fairies



    Water Fairies 

All Water Fairies


  • Baleful Polymorph: Rani is transformed into a bat by mermaid song in the second book, with her consciousness trapped inside. By the end, the bat agrees to trade places with her, becoming a kind of Greek Chorus in her mind.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Rani had to trade her wings to save Pixie Hollow.
  • Determinator
  • Disability Superpower: Fairy wings soak up water, making it impossible to swim. Since Rani has no wings, she doesn't have this problem.
  • Hair Decorations: Wears a beaded headband.
  • Nice Girl


  • Asian Airhead
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Displays traces of this at times. In one of the shorts, she spacily-stares straight ahead while Fawn is tossing everyone seeds to plant.
  • Literal-Minded: In Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure when Terrance tells her Tinker Bell exploded she thinks he means Tink literally exploded until he elaborates that he meant she lost her temper.
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Token Minority: Fills the Asian slot in the films.

    Garden Fairies 

All Garden Fairies

  • Floral Theme Naming: Among them Rosetta, Iris, Lily, Ivy, and Chloe (which is Greek for "green shoot").
  • Green Thumb: Garden fairies instinctively know how to care for different plants.


  • The Ditz: A mild case but she does have a problem focusing on things and focuses way too much on her own appearance, even in times of great duress.
  • Flower in Her Hair: Wears a rose blossom in her hair.
  • Hartman Hips: They are huge. Even compared to Tinker Bell's!
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead
  • Southern Belle: In the films and the shorts, she's voiced with a Southern accent.
  • Terrified of Germs: Ironic, since she's a garden fairy. In The Great Fairy Rescue, she takes off her shoes to cross the muddy waters, and complains about getting mud on her bare feet. She nearly ruins the team's chances in The Pixie Hollow Games by refusing to get dirty. Extra ironic when she becomes an animal fairy in The Pirate Fairy, with bugs lining up around her, much to her horror.


  • Insufferable Genius: Offers advice to other garden-talent fairies, whether they want it or not.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Un-Sorcerer: Iris is incomplete. She doesn't instinctively know how to take care of plants and has to write down what she learns in a notebook to remember it.



  • Adorkable: She's new and eager to do her best, making her this. Her nervous, but genuine, enthusiasm in The Pixie Hollow Games is a shining example of the trope.
  • Catch Phrase: "Dig down deeper and break the streak!"
  • Tomboy: Complete with short hair, an affinity for sports and a tomboyish voice.


    Dust Fairies 

Fairy Gary


  • Bishie Sparkle: Because he works with pixie dust, Terence is extra-sparkly.
  • Demoted to Extra: After Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure.
  • Everyone Can See It: The other Dust Talent Fairies poke fun at him for his attachment to Tink.
  • Neat Freak: In Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure, he cleaned off Tinker Bell's work bench - while she was working.
  • Nice Hat
  • UST: With Tink.


  • Action Girl
  • Alchemy: The main conflict of The Pirate Fairy kicks off when Zarina creates different kinds of pixie dust related to various fairy talents, using a speck of blue pixie dust as a base. She even refers to it as alchemy at the end of the movie.
  • Beauty Mark: One under her left eye.
  • Break the Haughty: When she is betrayed by James and the other pirates, imprisoned in a lantern, and thrown to her intended death.
  • Heel-Face Turn
  • Letting Her Hair Down: After she leaves Pixie Hollow and joins the pirates.
  • Lightning Bruiser
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Her face and eyes look a little more naturalistic than the rest of the Fairies, and her outfit is MUCH more complex and detailed. She looks like a character from another series transplanted into Pixie Hollow. Opposite of the more simplistic Tinker Bell.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Most regular Fairies are only moderately stronger than you'd expect a five-inch tall person to be — it took four of them to carry a block of ice that's about six inches on each side. Zarina on the other hand successfully engages in a swordfight with a human being, and even pushes him back after blocking his sword-thrust with a blade the size of a sewing needle!
  • Pirate Girl
  • Wild Hair: As pointed out by Rosetta.

    Fast-Flying Fairies 

All Fast-Flying Fairies


  • Alpha Bitch: At first.
    • Lovable Alpha Bitch: She eventually comes to terms with the rest of the gang, and stops being so rude and nasty to everyone. She's now just mildly-arrogant and snarky.
  • Break the Haughty: In Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Vidia occasionally does the decent thing and she seems to have a soft spot for Prilla in the books. She's also not willing to see Tinker Bell killed and pinned to a board in The Great Fairy Rescue, despite being frequently annoyed by her.
  • Demoted to Extra: The antagonist of the first film, but has no speaking lines in the second. A major character again by the third, but just "part of the cast" in the next couple (albeit with the most lines of the non-Tink cast in The Pirate Fairy).
  • Does Not Like Shoes: At least in the chapter books.
  • Elemental Powers: Air, in the films. Although her talent is explicitly fast-flying, the first movie shows her also having the power to manipulate air to create tiny whirlwinds.
  • Expy: In design, she's similar to Megara.
  • Gray Eyes
  • Heel-Face Turn: In the first Tinker Bell, she and Tinker Bell are enemies. In Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue, she develops a change of heart and becomes friends with Tink and the other fairies. She's still snarky and crabby like before, but is also willing to laugh with the others and even engages in group hugs.
  • Irony: Winds up as a tinker fairy during the switched talents subplot of The Pirate Fairy. She does not take this well.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: An egotistical, vain sort of fairy, but is horrified when Tinker Bell is captured by humans and looks about to be victimized like a pinned butterfly collection.
  • Loners Are Freaks: The supporting material includes a lot of commentary about the other fairies not wanting to be around her because she's so grouchy and snarky.
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Shadow Archetype: For Tinker Bell.
  • Smug Snake
  • Smug Super
  • Super Speed: In Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand, Vidia wishes to be able to fly as fast as she wants for as long as she wants. Although she has fun at first, she soon realizes there's no longer any challenge in flying and grows bored with flying altogether.
  • Unknown Rival


     Frost fairies 

All frost fairies




Dewey "The Keeper"

    Other Fairies 


Queen Clarion

Lord Milori

  • Big Damn Heroes: At the end of Secret of the Wings, Milori comes to save the day with his squadron of owls.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: His pushing the snow machine into the river and the machine getting stuck making endless snow was what caused a freeze that threatened destroying the Dust Tree.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: One of the heartbreaking things about Secret of the Wings is that Milori is completely right about it being dangerous for winter and warm fairies to cross the border. It is later revealed that he was the fairy whose wing was broken when he crossed the border.
