    Celestial Spirit King 
Owners: N/A
Magic: Sword Magic, Telepathy
Weapons/Equipment: Longsword

The ruler of the Celestial Spirit World and its residents, as well as the strongest of the Celestial Spirits. He can only be summoned by a Celestial Spirit Mage who sacrifices a Gold Key of a Spirit whom the summoner has a strong bond with.

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.
  • 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.

    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 


Owners: Karen Lilica (former), Angel (former), Lucy Heartfilia
Magic: Wool Magic

The Ram. She is a meek spirit who can conjure fluffy pink clouds of wool in battle. Her master was the abusive Karen Lilica until Angel killed Karen and took her key as the spoils of battle. After Angel is defeated, Aries comes into Lucy's possession.

Voiced by: Sayaka Narita (JP), Didi Duron (EN)


Owners: Lucy Heartfilia
Weapons/Equipment: Battle Axe (Labrys)

The Golden Bull. He possesses Herculean strength, but is constantly distracted by Lucy's breasts. He is one of the spirits owned by Lucy at the start of the story.

Voiced by: Eiji Sekiguchi (JP), Jeremy Inman (EN)


Owners: Angel (former), Lucy Heartfilia
Magic: Copy Magic

The Twins. They have the power to mimic the appearance of anyone and read their minds. They are Angel's signature spirits and follow her orders without question until Lucy proves to be a more caring master.

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
  • 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.
  • 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.


Owners: Layla Heartfilia (former), Lucy Heartfilia
Weapons/Equipment: Dual Scissors

The Giant Crab. He is a hairstylist who wields scissors that can cut through virtually anything. Lucy inherits his key from her mother, and owns him by the time the story begins.

Voiced by: Yoshimitsu Shimoyama (JP), Will Short (EN)


See Fairy Tail Tenrou Group.


Owners: Duke Everlue (former), Lucy Heartfilia
Magic: Earth Magic, Transformation Magic, Chain Magic

The Maiden. She is a sadomasochistic spirit dressed as a maid who can burrow underground and manipulate earth. Originally owned by Duke Everlue, she makes a new contract with Lucy after the duke is arrested.

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


Owners: Yukino Aguria
Magic: Gravity Change

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


Owners: Angel (former), Lucy Heartfilia
Magic: Sand Magic

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)


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.

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.")


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)


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..."
  • 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 care 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.
    • 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 (in this case, hung on a tree "like laundry"). She does help 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.
  • 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


Owners: Yukino Aguria

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.


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.

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


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)


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.


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)


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)


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.


Owners: Lucy Heartfilia

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