Voiced by: Norio Wakamoto (JP), Cole Brown (EN)

  • Anti-Magic: "Galaxia Blade", his most powerful ability, uses the pure light of the stars to break even the darkest curse.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Mard Guille.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: King of the Celestial Spirits and the most powerful of them all.
  • Badass: If one didn't believe it by his intimidating first appearance, they'd certainly believe it when he finally appears in a fight.
  • Battle Aura: Can unleash a destructive one when angered.
  • Berserk Button: Make Lucy suffer and he'll destroy your entire guild headquarters without prejudice!
  • BFS: Wields an extremely powerful longsword decorated with star imagery. Considering how huge he is, that just makes it even bigger.
  • Cool Old Guy: Has the appearance of an old man, but not only does he look cool and intimidating, he's extremely strong.
  • Cool Helmet: Wears a really nice-looking and intimidating horned helmet that shows his face and is also decorated with fins and a upside-down star.
  • Cool Sword: His BFS is richly decorated with star imagery and is powerful enough to cut one of the most powerful Dark Guilds' travelling headquarters into several pieces.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: Lucy, did you just defy the Celestial Spirit King? And he listened?
  • Dynamic Entry: Makes an epic grand entrance when Lucy manages to summon him following Aquarius's sacrifice. He makes his appearance by slicing the Tartarus's headquarters, Plutogrim, into pieces.
  • Expy: Of Odin. As in "the summon from the Final Fantasy series". If someone who has seen the Dynamic Entry above tells you they didn't think of Zantetsuken, they lie.
  • Godzilla Threshold: Summoning him requires the sacrifice of one golden key. Meaning, that they can never summon them again. Therefore, summoning him is considered as a very last resort
  • Infinity+1 Sword: In a way, as a Celestial Spirit Mage can only summon him if they can summon three spirits at a time, which itself requires large magic reserves and has presumably never been done before until Lucy does.
  • Large and In Charge: King of the Celestial Spirits and a huge giant that towers over everybody.
  • Large Ham: Not only that, but half the fandom fell over in their chairs when they heard who was doing his voice.
  • Power at a Price: It is possible to summon him. The toll though? One must destroy a Celestial Key with a Spirit they have a strong connection to, thus meaning they can never summon them again.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He's the king of the Celestial Spirits and a benevolent leader. Seeing Lucy's conviction, he relents and pardons Leo, allowing him to return to the Spirit World.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: A benevolent example.
  • Spellblade: Can use his sword to create powerful magical attacks.
    • Sword Beam: Can bring forth huge beams from slashing his sword, which is ridiculously destructive.
  • The Bus Came Back: After being gone for a long time, he finally reappears in the Tartatus arc to save Lucy and destroy Cube.
  • The Power of Friendship: What finally convinces him to allow Leo back into the Celestial Spirit World. In a way he embodies this since breaking a Golden Key to summon him only works if the mage has a strong bond with the corresponding Spirit.
  • Time Master: Time stops when he appears in the human world, except for those he addresses.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: He was not happy with the sight of Lucy crying her heart out after having to summon him.

Eclipse Form

  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: He's even more monstrously huge in this form.
  • Baleful Polymorph: His most dangerous ability by far involves turning his targets into harmless, immobile constellations.
  • Bigger Bad: Of the Eclipse Celestial Spirit arc.
  • The Caligula: An absolute tyrant in this form. He's the real reason the Zodiac Spirits (sans Ophiuchus) wanted 'freedom.' He's become such a tyrant that he threatens to destroy the entire Celestial Spirit World, and they wanted to jump off the ship before it sinks, so to speak.
  • Celestial Body: His body looks like a starry night sky.
  • Eldritch Abomination: A huge humanoid monster with few an oddly shaped head and a mouth that's only present some of the time. It can transform people into inanimate constellations and open multiple black holes on its body.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Ophiuchus says he's going to inevitably destroy the Celestial Spirit World and everything in it, herself included. And she's okay with that.

Gold Keys of the Zodiac

There are twelve different types of golden Zodiac keys, only one of each existing in the world. They can be used to summon one of the twelve spirits of the Zodiac. Incidentally, all the gold keys introduced in the series come into Lucy's possession.note

Eclipse Form

     Gemini 
Owners: Angel (former), Lucy Heartfilia

Gemi is voiced by: Yukiyo Fujii (JP), Heather Walker (EN)
Mini is voiced by: Kanami Satou (JP), Michelle Rojas (EN)

  • Ditto Fighter: Copies the appearance and abilities of a person whose magic power is at the same level or lower than their summoner's.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: They appeared on chapter cover pages well before their first real appearance.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Due to their telepathy, they felt the love Lucy has for Celestial Spirits, which prompted them to fall to their knees and cry, as well as refuse to hurt Lucy.
  • Necessary Drawback: They can only copy someone whose magic power is at the level of their summoner, meaning Lucy can't get Gemini to fight for her as monstrously powerful people like Erza or Laxus.
  • Telepathy: They can read the minds of anyone they copy, but forget once they lose that transformation.
  • Tender Tears: Reading Lucy's mind deeply enough caused these and started their Heel-Face Turn.
  • Verbal Tic: "Piri piri"
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: They can copy up to two people at once. For every new transformation they acquire, they lose their oldest one.
  • Wonder Twin Powers: They're two people. Both of them are required to use their magic.

Eclipse Form

Voiced by: Miyuki Sawashiro (JP) Terri Doty (EN)

Eclipse Form

  • Ax-Crazy: Much more prone to violence in this form.
  • Dominatrix: Fittingly enough.
  • Having a Blast: Can now make her holes explode on command. She's practically a walking minefield.
  • Interplay of Sex and Violence: She seems to enjoy inflicting pain on, and otherwise punishing, other people a little too much...
  • Irony: She likes to dole out pain, but doesn't like to receive it. Go fig.
  • Poke the Poodle: Attacks Lucy with watermelon and mayo when she turns out to enjoy the more mundane torture.
  • Putting on the Reich: Wears a more military outfit in this form.
  • Whip It Good: To add with her dominatrix theme, she uses a whip as a weapon and more then enjoy hurting Lucy with it.

     Libra 
Owners: Yukino Aguria

The Heavenly Scales. She has the power to manipulate the gravity of any target. She is under Yukino's ownership.

Voiced by: Saori Goto (JP)

Eclipse Form

     Scorpio 
Owners: Angel (former), Lucy Heartfilia

The Scorpion. He can produce sandstorms from the tail-shaped cannon on his back. He is also Aquarius' boyfriend. He was initially owned by Angel until he decides Lucy would make a much better master.

Voiced by: Daisuke Kishio (JP), Andrew Chandler (EN)

Eclipse Form

     Sagittarius 
Onwers: Lucy Heartfilia
Weapons/Equipment: Bow and Arrows

The Archer. He is a master bowman in a horse costume who never misses his target. His key is given to Lucy by the natives of Galuna Island as a reward for rescuing them. His Eclipse form is a true centaur.

Voiced by: Masaki Kawanabe (JP), Wilbur Penn (EN)

  • Captain Obvious
  • Expressive Mask: The head part of his costume changes its expressions according to the situation.
  • Genius Ditz/Literal-Minded: Possibly a combination of the two of these, or at least an innocent version of the first. When asked if he can produce fire (arrows) for Natsu, he stated that he can not. Only later does he realize that the issue at hand was if fire could be produced. Granted, it's partly a case of Poor Communication Kills, but it seems like a weird thing to distinguish.
    • Is more justified, when you think of it as "Can you make fire at ALL", or "Can you make that ONE THING on fire."
  • Verbal Tic: "Moshi, moshi!" (Hello, hello)
    • In the Funimation dub, he just says a multitude of weird-sounding greetings, goodbyes, and conjunctions. ("Yes sir-ee!" "See you later, alligator.")

Eclipse Form

  • Affably Evil: Speaks like an old samurai
  • Brick Joke: Before his normal form was revealed, Happy thought he look more like a proper centaur. Ironically his Eclipse form is just how he imagined him.
  • Eyes Always Shut
  • Our Centaurs Are Different: He turns into a proper centaur in this form rather then a guy in a horse costume.

     Capricorn 
Owner: Layla Heartfilia (former), Zoldio (former), Lucy Heartfilia

The Goat. He was given to Zoldio by Lucy's mother until her daughter came of age, but Zoldio fused with him and became a being named Caprico. He is freed by Leo and joins his rightful owner afterward.

Voiced by: Takaya Kuroda (JP), Michael Johnson (EN)

Eclipse Form

  • Affably Evil: Is still nothing put polite in this form.
  • Petting Zoo People: He's actually a small taking goat rather then a humanoid one in this form.
  • Quiz Show: The entire reason his "fight" with Levy is a quiz show is because he like quiz shows.

     Aquarius 
Owners: Layla Heartfilia (former), Lucy Heartfilia
Magic: Water Magic

The Water Bearer. She is a powerful spirit who carries an urn filled with a limitless supply of water. She is one of the first spirits owned by Lucy, but hates her master's guts and often attacks her instead of her intended targets.

Voiced by: Eri Kitamura (JP), Jessica Cavanagh (EN)

  • Action Girl: Usually whenever Aquarius shows up, someone's about to get hurt. Badly.
  • Anger Born of Worry: When Lucy exhausts herself summoning Aquarius while she already has Loke and Virgo's gates open, her first words are "You dumbass..."
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Spanking Lucy for losing her keys the second time despite the fact that she was forced to drop them when Juvia trapped her in a water lock as she was trying to defend herself.
  • Elemental Baggage: One of the few aversions in the series. Lucy can't summon her without an existing body of water, though what qualifies as a body of water seems to very based on needs of the plot.
  • Freudian Excuse: Her attitude towards Lucy was largely because in the past she would frequently summon her because she didn't have any friends and always viewed her as a crybaby even long after she grew out of it. Nearly borders on Disproportionate Retribution in a few cases if not for the fact she does show she cares, just has a really hard time showing it.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Tells Lucy to summon the Spirit King by breaking her Key. Although this doesn't mean Aquarius is going to die, Lucy will never be able to summon her again.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's ill-tempered, rude and doesn't care that her attacks hurt Lucy and her allies. However, moments before Lucy breaks her Key to summon the Spirit King on her suggestion, Aquarius admits that deep down she really cared for Lucy.
  • The Load: As fierce a fighter she is, there are moments where she just flat out abandons Lucy when she's really needed, such as the battle with Angel in the Nirvana arc (leaving when Scorpio was summoned and revealing he's her boyfriend), and during the underwater battle in the Grand Magic Games arc (counters one attack before splitting). In both cases, Lucy winds up in real danger as a result.
  • Making a Splash: Just look at her name.
  • Odd Friendship: With Juvia.
  • Official Couple: With Scorpio.
  • Oh, Crap: When she realizes Hughes can wrest control of water from her. Again when Torafuzar easily swims through it to attack her.
  • Pet the Dog: In the anime only, she cries out for Lucy's safety in the Edolas arc when her master is attacked and she herself is powerless.
    • Also, she was among the rest of Lucy's spirits who agreed with her that Leo shouldn't sacrifice his life for a reason they believe not to be right.
    • She also tells Lucy to summon the Spirit King by breaking her Key.
    • At the start of the anime only Eclipse Celestial Spirit Arc. She's temperamental as always when Lucy tries to grant her a wish for her hard work and typically her wish is to see Lucy embarrassed. First by making Yukino and her act out a play, then as usual attacking her with water which leaves Lucy hung on a tree "like laundry". She does however get her down and dry her off afterwards and they spend the night watching the stars together.
  • Reliable Traitor: Despite her tendency to berate, mock, and even attack Lucy, the latter can almost always count on her destructive power as a last resort.
  • Tsundere: She acts hot-tempered and bitchy to everyone, especially Lucy, her dere side only shows up around her boyfriend. Later, right before Lucy breaks her Key, Aquarius claims she always hated Lucy for being such a naive, crybaby little brat, but admits to herself that she did care about Lucy and never being able to see her again makes her feel sad.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Layla Heartfilia. The main reason she was always so hostile to Lucy was because she wasn't Layla despite the fact that Lucy's her daughter.
  • Unfriendly Fire: Not just because she's a Jerkass around Lucy; her power is inherently just so destructive. In fact, this is used to Lucy's advantage when Aquarius is being controlled by Sherry.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

Eclipse Form

  • Bratty Half-Pint: Changed into a little girl in this form.
  • Cute and Psycho: Evil, yet incredibly adorable.
  • Friendly Enemy: Eventually develops this with Wendy.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: Has no problems playing with Wendy and Carla in an amusement park when they come after her, even sharing ice cream with them during a mid-fight break. Of course, her problem is that she can't quite see the difference between "playing" and "fighting".
  • Irony: She sounds a tad nicer in this form, though still one hundred percent with breaking away from their owners.
  • Making a Splash: A given only she has much better control of water in this form rather then the tidal wave throwing she usually does. To the point she can send out smaller streams of water and even make a water dragon to chase her targets.
  • Mythology Gag: Not only is she turned into a child in this form, but one of her main attacks is creating a water dragon. She fights against Wendy, who was originally planned to be the Water Dragon Slayer.

     Pisces 
Owners: Yukino Aguria
Click here for their 'human' form 

The Paired Fish. The two attack their target in pairs. They seem like fish at first, but their true form is a mother and her child. They are owned by Yukino.

The mother is voiced by: Kanami Satō (JP)
The son is voiced by: Shohei Kajikawa (JP)

Eclipse Form

  • Anti-Magic: The son has this ability as he's able to cancel out Natsu's fire attacks.
  • Big Eater: The mother can seemingly eat any attack! Even fire!
  • Consummate Liar: The son does this alot, claiming he'll do an action then responding "just kidding" and doing the opposite.
  • Fish People: A lot more played straight in this form. The son now looks like a merman and the mother is a flying shark.
  • Flying Seafood Special: The mother has the ability to fly in the air.
  • Funny Afro: Or dreadlocks in this case on the son. He can even give it to his opponents
  • Momma's Boy: The son though he acts like he doesn't need her most of the time.
  • No Sell: Ironically water now has no effect on them.
  • Sand Is Water: Sort of, the mother can generate water and swim through rock surfaces.
  • Threatening Shark: The mother is now a big shark.
  • Sizeshifter: The mother has the ability to change her size
  • Verbal Tic: The son's constant "Zruh"

     Ophiuchus 
Owners: Yukino Aguria

The Serpent Bearer. This massive, mechanical snake-like spirit is regarded as a thirteenth Zodiac spirit. It is owned by Yukino as her most powerful spirit.

Eclipse Form

Silver Keys

Spirits who are summoned using common silver keys are not typically summoned for combat purposes, but are rather done for casual reasons.

     Nikora/Plue 
Owners: Lucy Heartfilia, Katja

The Canis Minor. Nikora is a common breed of celestial spirit, and the minimal amount of magic power it takes to summon it makes it an ideal pet. Lucy owns her own Nikora, which she names Plue.

Voiced by: Saori Goto (JP), Majken Bullard (Season 1; EN), Monica Rial (Season 2 onwards; EN)

     Horologium 
Owners: Lucy Heartfilia

The Clock. He is a talking grandfather clock who Lucy tends to summon to use as shelter from hazardous environments.

Voiced by: Masaki Kawanabe (JP), Ben Bryant (EN)

  • Big Damn Heroes: Saves Lucy from the collapsing Nirvana and from being sucked through the Anima, and Wendy from one of Hades's attacks. Does it yet again when saving Arcadios from lava. This is basically Horologium's hat.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: His ability to conceal people inside his body comes in handy.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: Moreso than the other spirits, since he is specifically a defensive spirit that can hide others inside of his body. He has been shown to protect people from inter-dimensional magic, falling rocks, a One-Hit KO spell, lava, and cold weather.
  • Verbal Tic: "...he/she says." Justified in that the inside of his body is totally soundproof, and he must relay the words of whatever people inside him say to everyone else.
    • The English dub takes this a step further: he not only says what people say, but how they say it, such as "...he/she yells furiously" or "...he/she asks tearfully," just to make good with the lip-locking.

     Lyra 
Owners: Lucy Heartfilia
Weapons/Equipment: Harp

The Lyre. She is typically summoned for her phenomenal singing voice.

Voiced by: Megumi Nakajima (JP), Kristin Sutton (EN)

     Crux 
Owners: Lucy Heartfilia
Magic: Archive

The Southern Cross. This cross-shaped spirit has an encyclopedic knowledge of celestial spirits and their owners, which he searches for by sleeping.

Voiced by: Masafumi Kimura (JP), Bill Flynn (EN)

     Caelum 
Owners: Angel, Katja
Magic: Gun Mode Shift, Sword Mode Shift

The Chisel. It is one of Angel's contracted spirits that acts more like a weapon than a sentient being.
  • BFG/BFS: Caelum is both and can switch to one at the user will.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: In the manga Aries, Scorpio and Gemini are all revealed to have joined Lucy after Angel was imprisoned. But Caelum's fate is unknown. In the anime it returned in the Key of the Starry Sky Arc under Katja's control though it's not revealed how she got it's key. Supposedly it's just one of many types like Nikola is.

     Pyxis 
Owners: Lucy Heartfilia

The Compass. It is a penguin with a compass on its head.

     Polaris 
Owners: Yukino

The bear cub. One of of the few combat silver keys. Only appears in the anime.

     Deneb 
Owners: Yukino

The black swan, another combat silver key. Only appears in the anime.
