The first dark guild of the series. The members of this guild seek out the demon flute Lullaby and try to use its deadly music to launch an assassination plot against the guild masters of Fiore.
Erigor / Grim Reaper
Click here for spoiler
The ace and acting leader of Eisenwald. He is skilled at using Wind Magic to attack, defend, and trap opponents.
, Erigor appears as a member of the Reborn Oración Seis under the name "Grim Reaper". In exchange for his memories of his entire life, he gains control over weather.
- Arc Villain: Of the Lullaby arc.
- Badass Longcoat: Wears one when he reappears in the anime, which is also the one that Jellal wears later on.
- Bald of Evil: Post-Time Skip.
- Blow You Away.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: As Grim Reaper.
- Do Not Touch the Funnel Cloud: The whole point of his Wind Wall spell is that the visible part is definitely not something you want to touch. His Storm Mail spell works under a similar principle, but as a subversion there's still a great deal of wind blowing around the funnel itself.
- Elemental Rock-Paper-Scissors: Holds this in Natsu's face when they fight. Backfires spectacularly in the end.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Memories of his True Companions from Eisenwald are the first thing to stir when his brainwashing starts to fade. Even in his mental realm, Erigor pictures his old self standing besides the silhouettes of his Eisenwald guildmates.
- Flight: One of the few characters who can do so unaided by wings.
- Improbable Weapon User: Post Time Skip, he decides to conclude his duel with Bickslow and Wendy by dropping a whole herd of cows on them.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: He gives up his memories in exchange for power over the Time Skip. As such, he doesn't remember anything about being Erigor of Eisenwald.
- Mind-Control Eyes: As a member of the Reborn Oración Seis, his eyes are shown to be a dull, glassy gray. His personality is also much more subdued than in his earlier appearances.
- Red Baron: Earned the title "Shinigami" due to his only taking requests to kill people. Ironically, he looks more like The Grim Reaper. This incidentally becomes his codename when he joins the Reborn Oración Seis.
- Revive Kills Zombie: When Wendy realizes that the memories of his past are physically hurting him, she keeps on casting healing spells on him until he recovers all his memories, freeing him from Oración Seis' grasp.
- Scarf of Asskicking: In his first appearance.
- Sinister Scythe: Part of his death motif. After the Time Skip, his scythe seems necessary for his Storm Magic.
- Tattooed Crook
- Took a Level in Badass: After the Time Skip he's become an official member of the Reborn Oración Seis, looks a lot more like the Grim Reaper, and can throw whole hurricanes on people with ease. Too bad he also loses his memory.
- Wake-Up Call Boss: He was the first antagonist that Natsu couldn't just bash into a wall with raw determination.
- Walking Shirtless Scene
- What Happened to the Mouse?: After his defeat, Lucy fears that Erigor will come back to take revenge. However, he's never seen and barely even mentioned again after that.
- The anime rectifies this. He reappears in the Nirvana arc as part of one of the many dark guilds controlled by Oración Seis, and has a rematch with Natsu. However, the drastic differences in their power are made apparent, and he's taken out in less than half an episode. He later appears after the Time Skip as a full-blown member of the Reborn Oración Seis.
- Worthy Opponent: During his anime-only rematch with Natsu, he admits that what he'd really hoped for was to fight Natsu again and win.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair
Eisenwald (former) Magic: Shadow Magic
, Dispelling Magic
Erigor's right-hand man. He uses shadow magic to blend into his surroundings.
Rayule, Karacka & Byard
Top: Rayule. Middle:Karacka. Bottom: Byard.
Three lesser members of Eisenwald.
Rayule is voiced by: Eiji Sekiguchi (JP), Will Christoferson (EN)
Karacka is voiced by: Masaki Kawanabe (JP), Chris Cason (EN)
Byard is voiced by: Daisuke Endou (JP), Tyson Rinehart (EN)

Gato & Zato
Affiliation: Naked Mummy
Top: Gato. Bottom: Zato.
A pair of monkey-like brothers who run Naked Mummy together.
Gato is voiced by: Hiroki Goto (JP), Cris George (EN)
Zato is voiced by: Tomoyuki Higuchi (JP), Paul Giovanni Ramirez (EN)
One of the three most powerful dark guilds that make up the Balam Alliance, which unites the dark guilds. Though it is one of the smallest guilds in the series, comprised of only six members, it lives up to its strength, forcing Fairy Tail to team up with three other official guilds just to fight it. This guild seeks Nirvana, an ancient magic that switches light with darkness.
In the anime-exclusive, post-Time Skip
"Key of the Starry Heavens" filler
arc, most of the members of Oración Seis return with a few new additions, becoming the "Reborn Oración Seis". Their goal is to assemble the Infinity Clock, an artifact that distorts one's perception of time in order to instill chaos throughout the world.
Chapter 364 reveals that they've been freed from prison. They apparently don't have a single goal now, instead, their members seem to each have a individual goal.
Oración Seis Magic: Darkness Magic
, Organic Link Magic, Self-Destruction Spell, Telepathy
, Requip, Archive Weapons/Equipment:
Click here for spoiler
The master of Oración Seis. He seeks the legendary magic Nirvana to destroy the official wizard guilds in the world and create a new world order. He has a split personality named Zero, who just wants to destroy everything.
In Chapter 364, he has been betrayed by Cobra, to the apathy of every other member of the guild.
- Ambiguously Brown
- Arc Villain: Of the Nirvana arc.
- Ax-Crazy: Zero
- Badass Longcoat
- Blood Knight: Zero. He loves destruction and greatly enjoyed his fight with Natsu.
- Chunky Updraft: As Zero, in the anime.
- Dark Is Evil: His magic fires ghostly apparitions.
- Dark-Skinned Blond
- Disk One Final Boss: Zig-zagged for Brain becomes Zero, who is the real Arc Villain.
- Et Tu, Brute?: Cobra betrayed him the moment Cobra secured Oración Seis' freedom. Then again Brain did tried to kill Cobra during the Nirvana incident. Unlikely that he would just let that go.
- Evil Albino: As Zero.
- Evil Genius: There's a reason he's called "Brain".
- Evil Mentor: To Jellal.
- For the Evulz: Zero loves to destroy everything with a physical form.
- Generic Doomsday Villain: He has very little characterization compared to other Arc Villains. Zero practically invokes this trope, claiming that he needs no reason for his actions.
- Genius Bruiser
- The Man Behind the Man: As the leader of his guild, he's technically behind Eisenwald, Naked Mummy, and several other dark guilds.
- Omnicidal Maniac: Zero has no motivation or plans beyond destroying anything and everything he encounters.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: As Zero.
- Reverse Arm-Fold: Zero.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: Brain sealed Zero away with Organic Link magic powered by the strongest desires of the other Oración Seis members. Zero comes out when all six are defeated.
- Simple Staff: Which isn't so simple after all.
- Slasher Smile
- Spell My Name with an S: A good number of scanlations call him "Blaine".
- The Stoic: Until he turns into Zero.
- Superpowered Evil Side: When the six main members are defeated, Brain's other personality, Zero, takes control.
- Tattooed Crook: Has tattoos all across his face. They are magic "keys" that seal away his Superpowered Evil Side.
- Underestimating Badassery: Jura had been incapacitated by Angel when the Light Team was initially trashed by Oración Seis, so when the two actually meet later he deems him a lightweight, not even aware that Jura is a Wizard Saint. Jura kicks his ass as a result.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Zero when he starts killing Jellal, the last key to Face.
- Subverted retroactively; Jellal was fighting an illusion decoy by Midnight. Brain was still unconscious through the whole fight.
- Brain (in the anime anyways) also was the one that took Ultear from her mother Ur in order to make her a member of the Oracion Seis. Her power was too great, so he literally abandoned her. This lead to her traumatizing the lives of Jellal, Erza, Meredy, Kagura, and several others. Others like Simon ended up dying. So yeah; there's a reason why he's called Brain.
- White Hair, Black Heart
- Would Hurt a Child: Has no qualms about beating Wendy should she refuse to cooperate with him.
Click here for spoiler
Brain's right-hand man who keeps a giant flying snake named Cubellios as a pet, and has ultra-sensitive hearing. He is also the Poison Dragon Slayer whose magic was implanted in him by Brain.
, Cobra sacrifices his eyesight in exchange for magic that lets him amply any sounds he hears to produce destructive sonic attacks. He also searches relentlessly for Cubellios, whom he was separated from seven years ago.
He returns later as the seventh Dragon Slayer needed to defeat future Rogue's seven dragons. He is also the reason Oración Seis was set free by Doranbalt, in exchange for intel on Tartarus.
Voiced by: Atsushi Imaruoka (JP), Jarrod Greene (EN)
- A Man and His Giant Purple Snake
- An Offer You Can't Refuse: Made one of these to Doranbalt: He'd spill the beans on Tartarus if he agreed to free Oración Seis. Doranbalt was desperate, and had no choice but to accept. Though as insurance Doranbalt had Jellal hook up with them to keep an eye on the group.
- Antagonist Abilities: Telepathy, he can "hear" his opponent thoughts.
- Badass Baritone
- Badass Cape: After the Time Skip.
- Badass Longcoat
- The Bus Came Back: First in the anime, and later in the manga.
- Brown Note/Make Me Wanna Shout: Post-Time Skip, he's improved his Sound Magic to the point that he can make walls of sound.
- Bullying a Dragon: He taunts Natsu by telling him dragons no longer exist in the world. He gets an authentic-sounding dragon's roar for his trouble.
- Catch Phrase: "I can hear you."
- Career-Ending Injury: It's implied that this happened to him when Natsu used a Dragon's Roar to blow out his eardrums thus rendering him deaf. He made a Deal with the Devil to get his hearing back.
- The Dragon: Quite literally.
- Co-Dragons: With Midnight.
- The Starscream: As soon as Oración Seis was free, he wastes no time in betraying Brain. Nobody else in the guild gave a damn, with Midnight basically saying 'good riddance.'
- Eleventh Hour Ranger
- Enemy Mine: He teams up with Natsu against Future Rogue and the dragons in the Grand Magic Games arc.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: His relationship with Cubellios is a prime example.
- Evil Red Head
- Finger-Licking Poison: He eats poison, because he's the Poison Dragon Slayer.
- "Get Out of Jail Free" Card: Jellal requests his temporary release from jail so he can help his fellow Dragon Slayers, well, slay dragons. He returns to jail soon afterward... only to be freed again, this time for real and along with the rest of the Oración Seis, by giving info about Tartarus to Doranbolt.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a scar over his left eye after the Time Skip.
- Handicapped Badass: He returns with a missing eye after the Time Skip. It's later revealed that the present eye no longer works.
- Heel-Face Turn: He returns to help Natsu and the other Dragon Slayers to defeat the seven Dragons who came through the Eclipse Gate.
- Ignored Enemy: When Natsu and Happy stop to squabble for a moment. Talking isn't a free action in the manga, but in the anime, possibly to make his Alas, Poor Villain moment more effective, he noticeably pauses in his attacks and has a sort of soft expression while looking at Cubellios.
- I Will Find You: He promises to find Cubellios after they are separated over the Time Skip. He succeeds, but they're not reunited for long before the council shows up to arrest him.
- In the Back: He survives, though.
- Manly Tears: After being shot by Brain.
- Mr. Exposition: He's surprisingly well-informed about Tartarus. He trades this information for the original Oración Seis's release out of prison.
- Oh Crap: He didn't quite catch that Midnight was summoning an illusion, and thus his reaction to Zero waking up and 'killing' Jellal was this.
- Pointy Ears: Apparently his Listening Magic eventually causes this.
- Revenge: He instantly attacks Brain after the group is released from prison for 1) shooting him in the back for the You Have Outlived Your Usefulness during the Nirvana arc and 2) Seeing that he saw all of Oricion Seis as nothing more then his pawns. He does apologize to Midnight for this who says he was fine with it.
- Shoo the Dog: He does this to Kinana/Cubellios when the council shows up so she won't be arrested with him.
- Slasher Smile
- Snakes Are Sexy
- Technicolor Toxin: Cubellios is violet and her bitten victims turn purple. The scales of Cobra's Dragon Slayer mode are violet, but the poison he creates is crimson.
- Telepathy: Cobra can read minds because his hearing is that good. This becomes his weakness when Natsu unleashes a Dragon's Roar at point blank range, deafening him.
- Again, post-Time Skip, where he is distracted upon hearing Kinana/Cubellios' voice, allowing Erza to finish him off.
- The Dog Bites Back: After waiting 7 years for the opportunity he kills Brain for shooting him in the back for a failure.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Brain takes him out just for losing to Natsu. He survives, however... and later returns the favor after the group is released from prison.
Click here for spoiler
A speed-obsessed wizard who uses magic to move faster than the human eye. Or at least that's how his magic appears to others; his true power is slowing down time for everything around him.
, Racer improves his Slowing Magic and achieves his desire for genuine speed, but sacrifices his own humanity and "heart" in the process and becomes a twisted shell of his former self.
- Anime Hair
- Ax-Crazy: Post-Time Skip.
- Badass Biker
- Badass Boast: "Faster than anybody, faster than anything. Running is what I do."
- Catch Phrase: "Fast is good."
- Cool Bike: His other magic, "Vehicle Magic", can produce them out of thin air.
- Dissonant Serenity: After Brain was betrayed by Cobra, he just shrugs his shoulders and asks what everyone else feels like doing now that they're free.
- Fragile Speedster: Catch him off guard and he's a vulnerable as any normal human.
- Gag Nose
- Knife Nut: Manga-only. In the anime, he threatens Lyon with a broken icicle.
- Oh Crap: Upon realizing that Brain was Not Quite Dead after Cobra's betrayal, and that Zero was unsealed in the process. Or not.
- Red and Black and Evil All Over: Post-Time Skip.
- Sinister Shades
- Spared by the Adaptation: In the manga, he quite clearly kills himself with the bomb, but fails to kill Lyon. However the anime has Lyon cut the bomb off of him and defend them both from the blast with ice magic before it could explode, saving his life in the process. It also gives a better explanation for how Lyon could have survived.
- His death is Retconned entirely when Hiro Mashima accepts the Key of the Starry Heavens filler arc as canon. And he later show up alive and well in the Tartarus Arc.
- Super Speed: It appeared to be this at first, but it's later revealed that it's actually the exact opposite. However, after the time-skip, he has genuinely achieved his dream of Super Speed.
- Taking You with Me: To Lyon, though it didn't work, as even he himself survived.
Oración Seis Magic: Earth Magic
(Liquid Ground), Heaven's Gaze
A greedy man who believes that money can solve all the world's problems. His Heaven's Gaze ability allows him to see through solid objects, and he can transform the ground around him into liquid. His true identity is Richard Buchanan, the older brother of Erza's childhood friend Wally.

Angel / Sorano Agria
Click here for spoiler
A very skilled Celestial Spirit wizard who controls spirits such as Gemini to read the minds of her enemies. However, she sees her spirits as little more than tools, and has no trouble mistreating them.
, Angel learns Angel Magic, which allow her to summon angelic beings that gradually eat away at her own lifespan so that when she dies, she will become an angel herself.
She is also Yukino's older sister Sorano, taken away to the Tower of Heaven by Zeref cultists at a young age. They haven't seen each other since.
- Absolute Cleavage: The first real example in the series.
- BFG/BFS: Caelum can be both.
- Captain Obvious Reveal: In a weird way. The minute Yukino said she had an older sister who was kidnapped by Zeref cultists, it didn't take long for fans to put two and two together and reach the conclusion that Sorano was Angel.
- Cast from Lifespan: Why Angel Magic should... be used sparingly, to say the least. Leads to her second Villainous Breakdown.
- Clothing Damage: After her defeat, and one of the most extensive cases in the series.
- Cool Big Sis: At one point, she was this to Yukino.
- Cute and Psycho
- Dark Action Girl
- Dark and Troubled Past: Being kidnapped by Zeref cultists, and being taken away from her sister. Judging by how she is now and seeing how Hoteye was initially, they succeeded in making her Brainwashed and Crazy.
- Dark Chick
- Detached Sleeves: After the Time Skip.
- Evil Counterpart: To Lucy.
- Family Theme Naming: Sorano and her sister Yukino.
- Freudian Excuse: Her personality makes a lot more sense once you know her real name is 'Sorano Agria.'
- Hair Decorations: A blue ribbon to be precise.
- Hime Cut: Post-Time Skip.
- Hoist By Her Own Petard: Turns out Angel Magic is not very wholesome to use, as she finds out in the worst possible way.
- Idiot Hair: In the shape of a halo.
- Impossible Hourglass Figure: Hard to tell until the Clothing Damage, but she definitely fits.
- Impossibly-Low Neckline: In the Key of the Starry Heavens Arc.
- Kick the Son of a Bitch: She's the one who killed Karen.
- Light Is Not Good: She wears a white dress, has white hair, is named "Angel" and uses Celestial Spirit magic. She's also one of the cruelest characters in the series.
- Post-Timeskip, she has learned Angel Magic, which allows her to summon "angels" in battle. Furthermore, the more she uses Angel Magic, the less human she becomes.
- Long-Lost Relative: To Yukino.
- Manipulative Bitch
- Mini Dress Of Power: It's even made of feathers.
- Mystical White Hair
- Oh Crap: Like Racer and Cobra, she's not thrilled to see that Brain survived Cobra's betrayal, and that Zero was unsealed. Thankfully, he actually wasn't.
- Opera Gloves: Bonus points for being the same color as the Zettai Ryouiki.
- The Ophelia: She is shown to have lost a few screws post-Time Skip as a side-effect of her Angel Magic; she thinks that when the angels she summons completely devour her soul, she will become an angel herself. Thankfully Gray manages to talk some sanity back into her.
- Sexy Backless Outfit: As sexy as the Absolute Cleavage.
- Shape Shifter: Her favorite combat tactic.
- Slasher Smile
- The Smurfette Principle: She's the only female in Oración Seis.
- Summon Magic: Angel is a Celestial Spirit wizard with three Golden Keys (Aries, Gemini, Scorpio).
- After the Time Skip she can use golden coins to directly summon angels to fight for her.
- Tattooed Crook: Has two angel wings tattooed above her breasts.
- Tears of Fear: Post-Time Skip when she realizes that her Angel Magic has turned against her.
- Uncanny Family Resemblance: To Yukino. Same color hair? Same type of outfit? Both Celestial Spirit mages?
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Yukino absolutely idolized her older sister when they were younger, and had nothing but good things to say about her. Contrast that image with how she is now.
- Vapor Wear
- Verbal Tic: She has a tendency to end her sentences with "~so."
- Villainous Breakdown: Twice. The second time nearly kills her.
- White Hair, Black Heart
- Woman in White
- Zerg Rush: She summons a small horde of angels, each with More Teeth than the Osmond Family, to attempt this on Jellal during the Tartarus Arc. Apparently, she didn't learn her lesson from the last time she abused Angel Magic.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A.
Midnight / Brain II / Macbeth
Click here for spoiler
Brain's adoptive son who is almost always shown sleeping. He uses Reflector magic to evade his opponents' attacks and create illusions.
, Midnight takes over his father's legacy as leader of the Reborn Oración Seis. He develops Brain's knack for inventing new spells to suit his needs, leading him to redub himself "Brain II".
- Antagonist Abilities: Attack Reflector.
- Arc Villain: Of the Key of the Starry Heavens filler arc.
- Attack Reflector: His primary power.
- Badass Longcoat: Post-Time Skip.
- Casting a Shadow: Seems to have learned the same type of Darkness Magic as Brain.
- Daydream Surprise: Did this twice. First against Erza and later on against Jellal. The former fake eye allowed her to see through it and cut him down. The latter had to blind himself to break through it.
- Dissonant Serenity: He doesn't bat an eyelash at Cobra betraying Brain.
- Disney Villain Death: Plummets into the depths of the Infinity Castle after Natsu defeats him in the Key of the Starry Heavens arc.

- Fighting a Shadow: He pulls this on Hoteye.
- Guyliner: And lipstick to boot!
- Master of Illusion: His secondary power.
- Multicolored Hair: He looks like he has two sets of hair at the same time—a black "spiky lump" commonly used on males, and white chin-length hair with decorations that would look perfectly fitting on a girl.
- No Sell: After the Time Skip, his combination of Reflector and Darkness Magic can't be blocked by Dan's or even Byro's magic.
- One-Winged Angel: Transforms into a hideous large beast once it becomes midnight, against Erza. It's actually just an illusion, which doesn't work for long on Erza.
- Razor Wind: One of the many uses of Reflector.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning
- Ship Tease: Believe it or not, with Jellal.
- Superpower Lottery: He's basically Accelerator and Aizen rolled into one, toned down of course. Subverted in the end, however, when all that power fails to keep him from suffering a humiliating defeat.
- Take Up My Sword: Reappears Post-Time Skip as the new leader of Oración Seis.
- Villainous Breakdown: Lucy turns the power of the Infinity Clock against him, distorting his perception of time and forcing him to relive the horrors of the Tower of Heaven.
Brain's staff, which has a mind of its own.

See Fairy Tail Anime Only
The strongest of the three dark guilds that make up the Balam Alliance. The members of this guild hope to awaken the power of the black wizard Zeref for their own selfish desires. Their search leads them to war against Fairy Tail on Sirius Island, where Zeref lives.
The master of Grimoire Heart. He wishes to uncover the origins of magic, and believes that awakening Zeref will give him that power. He was once called Precht, the second master and cofounder of Fairy Tail who named Makarov his successor.
- Arc Villain: Of the Sirius Island arc.
- Big Bad: Of half of the pre-Time Skip arcs. Jellal becoming Brainwashed and Crazy? All part of his plan to create a distraction to allow him to find one of the keys to unseal Zeref. Deliora's attempted revival on Galuna Island? It would have failed outright without Ultear, the leader of his Quirky Miniboss Squad. Oración Seis? Brain formed it while he was Jellal's mentor. He also played a part in Ultear's Start of Darkness, if not being outright responsible for it.
- Broken Pedestal: To Makarov.
- Chain Pain
- Death by Irony: He succeeds in 'unsealing' Zeref. Too bad Zeref was never sealed to begin with, and turned out to be a self-loathing Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds who wanted nothing to do with Hades or his Evil Plan, and killed Hades for dragging him out of his self-imposed exile.
- Evil Counterpart: To Makarov. He even has "Grimoire Law", to counter Fairy Law.
- Evil Is Not a Toy: Learned this lesson way too late, at the hands of Zeref.
- Evil Mentor: To the Seven Kin.
- Evil Old Folks
- Expy: His helmet, cape, age, imposing height, and ridiculous magic power all make him comparable to Haja from Rave Master.
- Eyepatch of Power: In the literal sense too, as once he takes it off he goes One-Winged Angel.
- Face Framed in Shadow: Until the Sirius Island arc.
- Face-Heel Turn: He was the second master of Fairy Tail and the one who nominated Makarov as his successor.
- Fallen Hero
- The Paragon Always Rebels: Although rather than take others with him into darkness, he recruited others and cultivated evil after he fell.
- Finger Gun
- Go Mad from the Revelation: Details haven't been given, but he decided to create a dark guild after learning the "true nature of magic".
- Gone Horribly Right: His actions awaken Zeref, who proceeds to kill him.
- Hero Killer
- Instant Runes: His Amaterasu spell seals, which are supposed to be ridiculously hard to do so quickly, if Makarov's reaction is any indication.
- Karmic Death
- Killed Off for Real
- Deader than Dead: Not only did Zeref kill him, Franmalth just so happened to have wandered across his body and got ahold of his soul.
- Redemption Equals Death: Franmalth's defeat releases his soul, and he gives Lucy and Natsu a message. "It's not over yet. Tartaros's real goal is not face. Tell Makarov...that it's time to let out the light."
- Knight of Cerebus
- The Man Behind the Woman Behind the Man: He's Ultear's boss.
- Made of Iron/No Sell: His entire battle with Team Natsu and Laxus consists of him getting up without a single scratch every time he is apparently crushed. This is thanks to his mechanical "heart", and only stops when the "heart" is destroyed.
- No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Defeats Makarov without breaking a sweat. Then, in the fight against Team Natsu, after they finish their "warm up" he utterly trashes the group.
- Oh Crap: Again, his battle with Team Natsu is practically an exchange of shocked and horrified expressions between both sides; he gives an "Oh Crap" face each time Team Natsu pulls an impressive stunt, and he gets one in return for every time he No Sells them. But his ultimate "Oh Crap" face comes when he realizes his Soul Jar is destroyed, and again when Zeref appears on his ship.
- Older than They Look: In flashbacks to when Makarov was a young man, he looks exactly the same as he does now.
- One-Winged Angel
- Orcus on His Throne: After defeating Makarov, he spends much of the arc sitting around on his ship without doing anything, even after every single one of his subordinates is defeated, until "Makarov's kids" waltz right through his door.
- Really 700 Years Old: He's over a hundred.
- Shoot the Medic First: What he tries to do to Wendy at the end of one of the many Oh Crap moments mentioned above; thankfully, Horologium saves her at the last second.
- Sorting Algorithm of Evil: He's the strongest character encountered up until that point in the series, barring Zeref and possibly Mavis.
- Soul Jar: His "heart" powers both himself and the Grimoire Heart guild ship. Unfortunately, it leads to his defeat, by Carla and Happy, no less.
- Tin Tyrant
- Unholy Nuke: Grimoire Law, the Evil Counterpart to Fairy Law. For bonus points, something really bad is supposed to happen should the two ever clash.
- Variable-Length Chain: One of his magic types is creating chains of light, which seem to have a draining ability when it latches on to his foes.
The Deputy Commander of Grimoire Heart. Despite his rank, he could care less about Zeref and just wants to find the powerful Fairy Glitter spell sealed within former Fairy Tail master Mavis's grave. He uses Gravity Magic to immobilize his opponents.
Seven Kin of Purgatory
A group of wizards who were all taught by Hades to learn a form of Lost Magic, ancient spells that are rarely practiced out of fear of their power.
- Hoist by Their Own Petards: Almost all of the Kin are defeated as a result of having their own magic turned against them in one way or another: Zancrow by his flames, Caprico by his body snatching, Kain by his doll, Merudy by her sensory link, Azuma by his decision to use the Sirius Tree's magic, and Rusty Rose by defeating Elfman and allowing him to be used as Bickslow's trump card. Even Ultear's defeat is a result of having helped melt Ur's ice back in the Galuna Island arc.
- Lost Magic: All of them use some kind of Lost Magic, which are stated by Hades to be the magics closest to the source of magic.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad
- Tykebomb: All of them are said to have been raised and trained by Hades himself, with Caprico as the exception.
See Fairy Tail Other Guilds
A man who uses the Great Tree Arc to control trees and harness the power of magic hidden deep within the earth.
Voiced by: Hiroshi Shirokuma (JP), Ray Hurd (EN)
- Almighty Janitor: Implied to be stronger than Ultear, who claims to be the strongest of the Seven Kin; definitely as Ezra has to go all out to beat him.
- Ambiguously Brown
- And I Must Scream: Turns into a tree as a result of overusing his magic.
- Anti-Villain: Type I, compared to the other six.
- Beard of Evil
- Blood Knight: He just wants a good fight, and will do whatever it takes to get it.
- Death Seeker: Possibly. He seems just a smidge too happy Erza beats him.
- Even Evil Has Standards: During his fight with Erza, he admits that he's uncomfortable with the methods of his compatriots, and the only reason he does so here is that he was ordered to by Master Hades.
- Expy: Possesses a strong resemblance to Amarant Coral from Final Fantasy IX.
- Facial Markings: A stripe from the top of his forehead to the middle of his left cheek.
- Graceful Loser: He calls the members of Fairy Tail "magnificent", openly admiring their bonds and the strength of their conviction, when he is defeated by Erza.
- Gratuitous Latin: Several of his attack names are Latin:
- "Folium Sica" (Leaf Dagger)
- "Ramus Sica" (Branch Dagger)
- "Terra Clamare" (Cries of the Earth)
- Green Thumb: His brand of Lost Magic, the Great Tree Arc. He uses it to take control of the magical power of Sirius Island through the Sirius Tree, which had given Fairy Tail immortality and a boost to their magic.
- Having a Blast: The explosions shown as his primary attacks are created by condensing the magic of the earth into the fruit of his trees.
- Hero Killer: He doesn't really want to kill anyone, but fits the trope otherwise. In just the Sirius Island arc he defeats Wendy, Doranbalt, Panther Lily, Carla, Lisanna, and Mirajane while she uses Satan Soulnote . Plus he takes a full-powered Erza to the limit.
- Kick the Dog: He places a timed explosion on Lisanna, saying that Mirajane has that long to defeat him before her sister dies.
- My Master, Right or Wrong: But follows his orders out of Undying Loyalty.
- Pet the Dog: Very slight, and directed at the same people he had a Kick the Dog moment with earlier, but he shows some regret when he sees Lisanna cry over Mirajane's body. He then leaves them instead of finishing them off.
- Punch Clock Villain: Unlike several of the other Kin, Azuma doesn't have a bone to pick with any of the Fairy Tail members besides being told to attack them by Hades and fighting strong people.
- Shirtless Scene
- The Stoic
- When Trees Attack: His secondary fighting style.
- Worthy Opponent: He considers Erza this.
A poetic young man who uses the Arc of Embodiment to create any object he desires from his imagination.
Voiced by: Kazuma Horie (JP), Justin Locklear (EN)
- Adjusting Your Glasses
- Anime Hair: Albeit one that's believable. His hair looks like a massive, overly-gelled pompadour.
- Antagonist Abilities: Reality Warper via Your Mind Makes It Real
- Arrogant Wizard Guy: He thinks of his magic as invincible, and comes to believe that all of Fairy Tail is weak after he beats Elfman and Evergreen.
- Evil Counterpart: Arguably, to Fried. Both are stoic bishonen with a nigh-unbeatable power (and understandable pride in such) with epic hair. But while Fried is quiet and mostly a nice guy when he's not on the attack, Rusty Rose is a douche who loves to talk.
- Evil Is Hammy: Even while being The Stoic, he acts highly overdramatic. Once he becomes less stoic, it gets worse.
- Four Eyes, Zero Soul
- Imagination Based Superpower: By definition, his powers are this. They allow him to fight with literally anything he can imagine, from pegasus shoes to impenetrable shields, and from glasses to giant towers of magical energy, all without any need for resources or any noticeable side-effects. Because there's no obvious way to counter someone who can fight with anything he can, Evergreen and Elfman are utterly curb stomped by him once he stops playing with them and it takes some seriously creative uses of magic for the guild to finally beat him.
- Informed Flaw: There are supposedly serious side-effects of his incredibly powerful magic, but they are never shown or even explained, and they don't stop him kicking serious amounts of ass.
- Jerkass: Good god, is he a dick. Unlike Azuma, he has no respect for Fairy Tail, and he takes pleasure in hurting others. Then there's the fact that he thinks the idea of killing off 90% of the world's population is a good idea.
- Luckily My Shield Will Protect Me: Summoned into his left hand.
- Mundane Utility: Uses his powers to make a new pair of glasses. Justified given the situation.
- Nice Shoes
- Oh Crap: When he winds up fighting both Fried and Bickslow and experiences fear for the first time. It doesn't last long though, as he uses the fear as more inspiration for his powers.
- He has an even more epic one later when, once Azuma restores the magical power of Fairy Tail, he gets his ass handed to him by the combined effort of Fried, Bickslow, Lisanna and Elfman.
- Psychotic Smirk: Once he starts being Not So Stoic.
- Reality Warper
- Scary Shiny Glasses
- Shapeshifter Weapon: Transformed his right arm into an extendable claw.
- Shipper on Deck: He seems to be one for Elfman and Evergreen in a very weird, twisted sort of way.
- Smug Super: The guy's got quite the ego on him, and it's pretty much deserved. He wiped the floor with Elfman and Evergreen, and Fried, Bixlow, and Lisanna needed to be pretty imaginative in the way they used their magic in order to defeat him.
- Squishy Wizard: His body isn't particularly strong nor is he particularly agile. Once his magic is disrupted long enough and one gets past the defenses he's layered himself with, he's out.
- The Stoic
- Not So Stoic: He laughs crazily at the prospect of living in a world where non-magic users cannot survive. And then there's the fact that he's reduced to Tears of Fear at the sight of Zeref when he's angry.
- Summon Magic: Apparently of the "Guardian Saint" variety.
- Superpower Lottery: He can create anything he imagines for no apparent drawbacks.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: It's a blink-and-you-miss-it scene, but Zeref spared his and Kain's lives, as they are both seen alive and well during Acnologia's destruction of Sirius Island. Despite this, there has been no word whatsoever as to what has become of them since then.

A childish and obese man who uses a voodoo-like cursing magic called Ushi no Koku Mairi.
- Acrofatic: He fights like a sumo wrestler, but is very agile.
- Beware the Silly Ones/Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: When he shuts up and uses his voodoo doll the right way, he's pretty damn strong.
- Butt Monkey: The guy doesn't get any respect.
- Casanova Wannabe: In the anime.
- Companion Cube: Mr. Cursey, which is required to use his magic.
- Dangerously Genre Savvy: When he finds Lucy lying unconscious in the forest, he wastes no time in performing a lethal blow on her.
- Dumb Muscle: Much less intelligent than his allies
- Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: He is very pale.
- Fan Disservice: His obesity combined with a rather exposing outfit is already this, but the worst example has to be in Chapter 226 when we get an unusually detailed close-up of his bare nipple. And yes, he has man-boobs. And yes, this is the series with the Nipple and Dimed trope applying to the females.
- Fat Bastard
- Gonk: Not helping that he shows a lot of skin under his shirt.
- Hollywood Voodoo: Or more accurately, Japanese curse magic. His primary magic requires the hair of his opponent and a curse doll (Mr. Cursey) which he then uses to control his opponent's movements. He can also use his own hair.
- Idiot Ball: He puts his own hair on his curse doll and then hands it over to Lucy to demonstrate his power.
- The Juggernaut
- Lightning Bruiser
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: When he actually starts to fight properly, he can be pretty terrifying. In fact, he incapacitated Natsu and would have killed Lucy if he hadn't lost track of Mr. Cursey, which gave Natsu a chance to use it.
- Psychopathic Manchild
- Speech Impediment: Stutters a lot.
- Status Buff: When Kain uses Mr. Cursey on himself, it seems to give him the consistency of whatever attribute the doll is emulating.
- Stout Strength
- Tears of Fear: Zeref appears on Grimoire Heart's airship, freezing everybody in their place.
- Verbal Tic: "Woo-wee". Also, his stuttering.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Underneath that cape of his. Unfortunately.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Zeref spared him and Rusty Rose, but there has been no word as to what has become of them after the Sirius Island arc.

instead of English letters like Levy.
Kawazu is voiced by: Yuuichi Iguchi (JP), Ian Sinclair (EN)
Yomazu is voiced by: Daisuke Kageura (JP), Matt Thurston (EN)
- Absurdly Sharp Blade: Yomazu, when combining his katana with his Solid Script magic phrase "pierce" is able to stab clean through Gajeel's arm, despite him being literally Made of Iron.
- Alliterative Name: Their names.
- Elite Mook
- Evil Counterpart: Yomazu to Levy.
- Everything's Better with Samurai: Yomazu.
- Face Framed in Shadow/Foreshadowing: It's easily overlooked, but Kawazu and Yomazu first appear in Chapter 131.

- Words Can Break My Bones: Yomazu, whose spells are written in kanji. They're also much powerful than they look as he manages to keep up with Fried's runes in a filler battle.
A Dark Guild that makes its appearance after the Time Skip
. Notable in that it has a role on the Taiyou village arc and that Minerva is one of its members. Also notable in that it is a subordinate guild to Tartarus.
The first member of Succubus Eye, with most of the details about him unknown. He is Minerva's superior, and he has the ability to make people regress back into children. Also, he's not human; he's actually a demon summoned from the Book of Zeref by Tartarus.
- Always a Bigger Fish: How does he finally lose? That flying, one-eyed monster from before flies down and eats him.
- Attack Backfire: Due to the way Maker Magic works, Doriate's power ended up being more helpful to Gray than harmful, in spite of weakening his power.
- Berserk Button: When Gray, despite being turned back into a child, is able to fight back and even talk down at him, Doriate gets so angry he loses focus on the Law of Regression and assumes his demon form to attack Gray.
- Brown Note: In his demon form, his Law of Regression can be used as a sound wave so that instead of only being able to affect the enemy in front of him, it was able to regress everybody in the Sun Village back to their childhood. The downside is that it doesn't discriminate between friend or foe, as seen when it hits his partner Minerva.
- Combat Pragmatist: He turns his victims into children so that they'll be easier to deal with. He also doesn't waste any time casting it once an enemy is in sight.
- Death by Irony: After wanting to eat Gray, he himself gets eaten by a giant, flying monster.
- Does Not Know His Own Strength: He can still use his magic while in his One-Winged Angel form, but he is no longer capable of aiming (or he just doesn't bother to do so anymore), causing everyone - including Minerva and Sylph Labyrinth - to get hit with Law of Regression.
- Fangs Are Evil: Even with his mouth shut, he has a lot of fangs jutting out.
- Fountain of Youth: His magic hits his victims with this. According to him, his magic actually affects the magic power of the victim, and their turning into a child is a secondary effect.
- Foreshadowing: Why was he subconsciously avoiding the ice around him? The ice was made via Devil Slayer magic, which would hit beings like him For Massive Damage.
- I'm a Humanitarian: If his attempt to eat Gray is any indication.
- Killed Off for Real
- Kryptonite Is Everywhere: Bordering on Too Dumb to Live, as the area he was fighting in was coated in ice that would severely damage him.
- No Badass to His Valet: He's likely aware that Minerva is the former ace of Sabertooth, but that doesn't change the fact she is still a newbie in her current guild.
- One-Winged Angel: When he gets really angry he hulks out into a huge demon. On the bright side, he's too angry to keep up the Law of Regression in this state.
- Our Demons Are Different: He's a demon from the Book of Zeref.
- Status Buff: Law of Regression's primary effect is to lower the opponent's abilities; the transformation into a child is a side effect.
- Would Hurt a Child: He definitely has no problem with beating up adults with the bodies of children. We've never seen him fight actual kids, but given his personality, he'd probably attack children like he would any other.
- Weak, but Skilled: Subverted. Gray assumes he uses Law Of Regression to weaken his enemies as a means to make up for his somewhat average power, which seems to match up to how the fight was going. Then he reveals his true colors as a powerful demon.
See Fairy Tail Other Guilds
The last of the three guilds that form (or formed) the dreaded Balam Alliance that, until the end of the Sun Village arc, had no prominence on the story, unlike the other two guilds
. This guild hadn't made any sort of appearance before the Time Skip
, and as such, this guild comes off as the most enigmatic. Several of their members, including their Guild Master, are demons from the Book of Zeref.
- Antagonist Abilities: So far many of the members has at least one of these.
- Badass Crew: Let's see... one of them froze Atlas Flame solid, another made Minerva shit herself in terror just at the mere sight of her, another assassinated all but one of the Magic Council in one perfectly-executed terrorist attack, and their guild master is stated to be the most terrifying demon Zeref has ever created, and he even kicked Igneel's ass in a fight. Yeah, they're kind of scary.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: It's implied that some of their members are this.
- The Dreaded: Nobody knows anything about them, but everybody is terrified of picking a fight with them, and for good reason.
- Kill All Humans: This appears to be their endgame. Tempester in particular even references the Humans Are Bastards speech that Zeref gave to Mavis, as well as the Bond One-Liner he delivered to Hades.
- Knights of Cerebus: If you thought Grimoire Heart instantly turned the series Darker and Edgier as soon as they showed up, wait till you see these guys.
- The Legions of Hell: See Our Demons Are Different.
- The Magic Goes Away: This is their goal. They are assassinating Magic Council members because three of the members' lifeforce seals away "Face", a magic pulse bomb capable of wiping out all magic on the continent. Since Tartarus uses "Enchantment" instead of magic, this would allow them to wipe out humanity with ease. Ultimately foiled in the middle of their fight with Fairy Tail, as Wendy and Carla manage to destroy and implode Face before if can fire.
- Meaningful Name: In Greek Mythology, Tartarus is an area of the Greek Underworld reserved to torment souls that are judged to be evil, making it the rough equivalent of hell in other religions. All of their high ranking members are demons from the Book of Zeref, who believe they are passing judgment on humans.
- Nothing Is Scarier: Nobody knows anything about them other than that they're a dark guild. The exception to this is Cobra, who was once part of a dark guild himself.
- One-Man Army: Each of them. Franmalth even lampshades this by saying that Zeref intentionally designed each demon to be able to take on the entire army of each country.
- Orcuses On Their Throne: They did absolutely nothing on-screen before their own arc began, and were only mentioned in passing with almost nothing being known about them. And then they made their on-screen debut in a very big way.
- Our Demons Are Different: Tatarus' high-ranking members are all demons from the Book of Zeref.
- Puny Humans: Being demons, they look down on humans on principle, and it looks like they've got the power to back it up. Laxus actually being capable of beating the crap out of him really pissed off Tempester.
- Puzzle Boss: So far, most of them are this. They're not particularly stronger than the rest of the Balam Alliance, but what makes them noticeably more difficult to handle than the last two is that a lot of their abilities require you to work out their weakness (with a bit of luck, in some cases) first before laying the smack down on them. And they are just as hard to figure out like many other Puzzle Boss examples. In other words, unless you figure out their weakness first, you pretty much have a snowball's chance in hell of winning. And that's not even getting into their Resurrective Immortality abilities yet...
- Religion of Evil: Many who have witnessed their gatherings described them as a cult that worships demons. They're only partially correct; they don't worship demons, they are demons.
- The Nine Demon Gates actually appear to worship Zeref himself (whom they refer to as 'Master'), with a shrine set up in his honor in their inner sanctum.
- Resurrective Immortality: What's that? You thought you could simply kill them? You don't know much about demons, then.
- This only works if they can return to Hell's Core. Mirajane takes advantage of this by destroying the entire lab.
- Sorting Algorithm of Evil: They are by far the most dangerous Dark Guild in the series. They're also the last of the Balam Alliance to appear.
- Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: To a certain extent; they all seem to disagree with each other save Silver and Kyouka.
- Tome of Eldritch Lore: They are believed to be the current owners of the Book of Zeref, and indeed, all of their high-ranking members are demons, including their Guild Master.
- Unequal Rites: They uses "Curses"/"Enchantment" which is somehow different from the rest of the magic in the series. Jackal boasts that it's inherently superior.
- Unwilling Demonization: They have the ability to turn their members into Demons and after they tried to do this to Mirajane it's implied that not all of their members were willing.
- We Will Find You: Kyouka, and later Zeref himself, have stated that despite being demons that Zeref created, Tartarus has never actually met Zeref in person, and it's one of their life's dreams to finally get the chance to do so.
- Blind Obedience: Which explains a lot of their actions and their lack of empathy for humanity. Kyouka pretty much flat out states they're only doing what they think Zeref would want of them.
The Guild Master of Tartarus, whose name was revealed in Chapter 356. He is the most powerful demon found in the Book of Zeref and was stated to have handily defeated Igneel.
- Blind Obedience: He wants to wipe out all of humanity pretty much because he thinks Zeref would approve.
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Why, yes, he did! Atlas Flame stated that even Igneel couldn't defeat this guy.
- The Dreaded: Atlas Flame is afraid of him, and his very name sends chills down Doranbalt's spine. Even Kyouka, a fellow demon and his subordinate, is visibly nervous when she is forced to wake him up after the Face project's failure.
- I Will Find You: Zeref states to Natsu that Tartarus has never actually met their creator, and that E.N.D. himself has been trying to find Zeref for quite some time. However, Zeref also indicates that only he or Natsu will actually get to find Zeref in person; not both.
- Names to Run Away From Really Fast: We don't even need to know what 'E.N.D.' stands for.
- Orcus on His Throne: Kind of; the reason he hasn't made any kind of appearance yet is, because, apparently, he hasn't been summoned from his book quite yet. Marde Guille has been leading Tartarus in his stead.
- Our Demons Are Different: He's said to be the most powerful demon Zeref ever created.
- Undying Loyalty: To Zeref, to the point where he's willing to wipe out humanity for no other reason than because he thinks it's what Zeref wants.
The first member of Tartarus to appear and the one who was actually responsible for the Village's freezing. He is a very powerful Ice Wizard, utilizing Devil Slayer magic. He is also a demon from the Book of Zeref, a trait shared by all of the Nine Demon Gates of Tartarus. He also apparently has a connection to Gray.
- Affably Evil: A pretty nice guy as far as Tartarus members go... just don't piss him off, as Natsu found out the hard way.
- Badass: He froze an entire village full of Giants and the residual energy of a Fire Dragon solid, by himself. To put it even further, the group mistook his magic to be Iced Shell, one of the most powerful forms of ice magic, usually used as a suicide tactic. It wasn't; his magic is that powerful.
- Berserk Button: He is rather cordial with Natsu at first and even thanks him for melting the Giants' Village since he froze it due to a misunderstanding. The moment Natsu mentions Gray's name since Silver smells similar to him, Silver freezes Natsu solid in an instant and coldly tells him not to say that 'disgusting name' again.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Froze Natsu solid with one wave of his hand. Natsu became another of Tartarus' prisoners for his trouble.
- Demon Slaying: 'Devil Slayer' Magic. It hits For Massive Damage against demons, such as those from the Book of Zeref.
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: He ended up doing this to Atlas Flame's spirit to a degree on the assumption he was a demon, even though the being he attacked was a Dragon.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He is first shown at the grave of someone in his debut, implying he was there to pay respects.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has a noticeable scar across the upper-left side of his face.
- Handsome Lech: He shamelessly flirts with Kyouka. She seems more amused by it than anything.
- Hunter of His Own Kind: Despite being a demon in a genocidal guild full of demons, he seems to actually hunt demons and apparently consume their souls.
- An Ice Person: Ice Devil Slayer.
- Knight Templar: Hinted at. He attacked Atlas Flame and froze him and the entire village along with it under the assumption that the Fire Dragon was a demon. Atlas Flame even referred to him as an exorcist.
- Light Is Not Good: He has magic designed to kill demons, and he wears crosses as earrings. Despite this, he is a member of a Dark Guild.
- Perma Stubble
- Pet the Dog: Natsu and Lisanna were subjected to a Shameful Strip and thrown into a cell together. He later visits their cell and gives Lisanna a blanket to cover herself with.
- Token Good Teammate: At least compared to the other eight Demon Gates. He hunts demons, and when the others all talk about their plan and how the current destruction they've caused is just the start, he's noticibly silent and going by his expression, he's less than thrilled. Even if he did freeze the Giant's Village, he did it because he thought Atlas Flame was a demon. He also assured a terrified messenger that he wouldn't bite just because he was disturbed.
- He also MAY of been the one responsible for Cana's knowledge that a attack would occur at the guild and likewise may of dropped the Sword for Natsu to use. Franmalth actually points out this.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: Kyouka comments on him showing up in his 'human form,' implying his current, humanoid appearance isn't his true one.
One of the Nine Demon Gates of Tartarus, who was tasked with recruiting 'soldiers' for Tartarus. She uses a currently unnamed type of reinforcement magic that greatly increases the power of any she casts it on... if they're powerful enough; according to Kyouka, her magic only aids those who already possess a great amount of power. Those that do not cannot withstand her overwhelming power and are instead transformed into paper dolls. She was told to go recruiting, so she began by visiting all of the subservient guilds under Tartarus and using her magic on their members. The mages of Succubus Eye weren't powerful enough to handle her reinforcement and were all turned into dolls, quite possibly leaving Minerva as the only surviving member. She is the second-in-command of Tartarus (after E.N.D.), with most of the other members reporting to her.
One of the Nine Demon Gates of Tartarus, who appears to be a human with catlike features
. His magic causes anything around him to spontaneously explode. He was tasked with assassinating the Magic Council, and so far, only Doranbalt appears to have survived his terrorist attack on the Council's headquarters. He, like the other Nine Demon Gates, is a demon from the Book of Zeref. He was
the first demon of the group to be killed... 'was' being the operative word.
- Ax-Crazy: And you thought Zancrow was bad...
- Badass: He single-handedly destroyed the headquarters of the Magic Council, and assassinated all but one of them.
- Cluster F-Bomb: If the translation is to be believed, after being resurrected following his fight with Natsu. He didn't take it well.
- Collision Damage: A particularly nasty side-effect of his powers. Anything that touches his skin directly spontaneously explodes, which was something Natsu found out the hard way. Lamy seems to be an exception.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: He absolutely annihilated the Magic Council with seemingly little effort. Only one member survived: Doranbalt.
- Death Is Cheap: Unlike Tempester, who loses his memories whenever he is resurrected, Jackal doesn't seem to suffer any negative consequences whatsoever, at least that we've seen.
- Did Not See That Coming: Just like Tempester and Laxus, Jackal severely underestimated Natsu. Too bad Leeroy Jenkinsing him is (usually) a really, really bad idea...
- Fangs Are Evil: Goes with his Little Bit Beastly appearance. His teeth look like that of a canine.
- For the Evulz: Outright states to Lucy that he's not really looking to gain anything, and that he just sees humans as playthings.
- Having a Blast: His magic causes massive explosions to occur anywhere around him.
- Hates Being Touched: His reaction to Lamy's shows of affection were borderline tsundere levels of this.
- Hellish Pupils: Just like a cat's eyes.
- Kansai Regional Accent
- Little Bit Beastly: He looks like a Cat Boy.
- Mad Bomber: Aside from blowing up the Magic Council's headquarters, he started destroying random buildings during his fight with Natsu, Lucy, and Wendy pretty much because he could.
- Not Quite Dead: See Resurrective Immortality above for the reason why.
- Oh Crap: You can almost hear him shitting bricks as he sees Natsu find a way around his Collision Damage ability, which was the only real advantage he had over him since Natsu can just eat his explosions.
- One-Winged Angel: He can turn into a werewolf-like form as a last resort. Too bad for him, Natsu's used to dealing with folks who use brute force.
- Peek-a-Bangs: Covers an entire half of his face.
- Person of Mass Destruction: His Curse causes spontaneous explosions of all sizes and intensities. He can demolish an entire building without even trying.
- Sadistic Choice: Gave Mikelo a choice between both he and his granddaughter dying, or him giving him - and by extension, Tartarus—the location of a certain MacGuffin he's looking for, in which case he would live... but his granddaughter would still die. Later he presents Lucy with a choice between saving Mikelo or a pregnant woman. Lucy is spared from making this choice by Natsu.
- Scarf of Asskicking: He gets an even longer one after being resurrected by Lamy.
- Slasher Smile: Massacres Magic Councilors, blows up a village, and forces more than one Sadistic Choice on others while sporting one of these. Can you tell he loves his job?
- Spell My Name with an S: 'Jackal,' 'Jaguar...' Tartarus seems to really suffer from this.
- Superpower Lottery: His basic offense is to blow up anything around him without any apparent limit. If you try to attack him, you blow up from touching him. If you try to fight long-range, he'll blow up the attack before it reaches him. If not for Natsu's ability to consume heat-based attacks, he'd be nearly unstoppable, which is best shown in Ch. 361 while Natsu is unconscious.
- Taking You with Me: As with Tempester, once his defeat seems inevitable, he tries to blow up the town with Natsu's group still in it. It's thwarted by Happy of all people carrying him above the city.
- Villainous Breakdown: When he finds that a "puny human" can actually go toe to toe with him. Even moreso when his Taking You with Me plan fails.
- What the Hell Are You?: During his fight with Natsu. Apparently, he's never heard of Dragon Slayers, or at least has never actually seen one in action before; the fact that Natsu's fire-eating abilities basically made him immune to Jackal's explosions took him by complete surprise.
- Would Hit a Girl: Or more specifically, would blow up a girl just to make a point to her grandfather, an ex-Magic Councilor. Or worse, would do the same to a pregnant woman, while forcing Lucy to decide if her life was more important than a Magic Counselor's.
Tartarus Curse: Currently Unnamed Guild Mark:
Left Forearm (second body)
One of the Nine Demon Gates of Tartarus. He was tasked with killing former members of the Council, including Yajima. Fried, Bickslow and Evergreen attempt to stop him, but are swiftly defeated. He was seconds away from killing Yajima before Laxus arrived. He later used Anti-Magic
Particles to essentially gas an entire city in order to attempt to take Fried, Bickslow, Evergreen, and Laxus with him, but this cost him his body. He now has an entirely new body, courtesy of Lamy... only without his memories intact.
- Ambiguously Brown: His second body.
- Badass: When you easily curb-stomp three of Fairy Tail's strongest mages, then take an attack from The Ace and seem unfazed by it, you definitely qualify.
- Bishōnen: His second body is this in spades, complete with White Hair, Black Heart.
- Blow You Away: He uses some kind of Wind Magic that summons cyclones. He can also put them around his limbs or use them to hit from afar.
- Body Back Up Drive: And it looks nothing like the first body we see him in.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: The Raijin Tribe barely had time to attack him when he made his appearance, and he blew them away without any trouble.
- This is reversed on him when Laxus beats him without even trying.
- Dangerously Genre Savvy: He seems to be aware of how strong Fairy Tail is and doesn't waste time attacking. One panel after appearing, he uses a Cyclone to destroy the building he and his enemies are in, and he makes sure to paralyze the Raijin Tribe so they can't interfere.
- When Laxus beats him, he uses a deadly attack that results in Laxus getting a Game-Breaking Injury, while he can simply regenerate.
- Dark-Skinned Blond: In his second body.
- Death Is Cheap: When he kills himself using his most powerful attack, he reforms himself back at Tartarus' HQ. Otherwise, we assume he's only as immortal as the rest of the demons in Tartarus. The only downside to this is that he can't remember his own name each time this happens. It's happened often enough that he no longer cares about his name.
- Did Not See That Coming: He says he did not expect someone from Fairy Tail (read: Laxus)— or indeed any human— to be so strong, and thus he wasn't as serious as he could of been.
- Expy: His second body is the spitting image of Xehanort from Kingdom Hearts.
- Idiot Hair: In his second body.
- In the Hood: He wears a hood to cover his face though most of his face is still visible.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Every time he's reborn, he loses his memories.
- Little Bit Beastly: He seems to have fur and a animal like face, though what kind is unknown due to his Hood. Seems to be a bit Lion but its hard to tell.
- Long-Haired Pretty Boy: His second body.
- Mage Killer: His most powerful attack makes him explode into toxic mist that is especially dangerous to magic users, though it's also deadly to ordinary people. The only downside is that he has to reform himself back at Tartarus' headquarters.
- Meaningful Echo: Two of his quotes in particular reference something oddly familiar...
"Judgment is upon humanity. [...
] Fall... to hell."
- Meaningful Name: Yes, he's the guy throwing around Wind Spells.
- Neck Lift: He had lifted Yajima up by the throat and was about to blast him with magic when Laxus showed up.
- No Sell: He took a direct hit from several members of the Raijin Tribe, and barely even flinched.
- The Paralyzer: His magic seems to paralyze whoever it hits, given how the Raijin tribe was unable to move afterwards.
- Person of Mass Destruction: His tornadoes leveled Yajima's restaurant. And his Anti-Magic Particles were eerily reminiscent of a real-life chemical weapons attack, body count and collateral damage included.
- The Red Baron: Tempester "the Immortal"
- Rule of Sexy: In-universe example; Lamy says this was the reasoning behind his new appearance (while shamelessly fawning over him).
- Spell My Name with an S: Tempester/Tempesta.
- The Stoic: Aside from his Verbal Tic below, he hardly seems to speak, and when he does, his sentences consist of about three or four words total.
- Taking You with Me: Subverted with his final attack. At first it looks like he's killing himself to take out Laxus, the Raijin Tribe, and Yajima, but then he reveals that he's perfectly alive and just needs to return to HQ to reform himself.
- Verbal Tic: He has a habit of saying things like "Hyuru" or "Bo" when he uses his magic.
- White Hair, Black Heart: His second body.
A member of the Nine Demon Gates, who resembles a short, fat cyclops
clad head-to-toe in armor, except for the lower half of his head, and uses a cane to walk. He's in charge of managing Tartarus' money, and has a habit of constantly laughing
- Achilles' Heel: He cannot assimilate anything without a soul. Natsu exploits this by beating him with a big rock.
- Acrofatic: Much to Natsu's shock. When channeling Hades' soul, he's firmly in Lightning Bruiser territory.
- The Assimilator: His Combat Tentacles-like limbs don't just drain energy. Leave them attached long enough, and you get absorbed. Powers included.
- Battle Strip: His armor comes off as he fights Natsu. Justified in that his armor is apparently more like a straightjacket that restrains his body mass than armor, and what's more, he doesn't need it anyway.
- Beware the Silly Ones: Don't let his constant giggling and obsession with money fool you; even Natsu was struggling with this guy.
- Catch Phrase: "How much is X worth? How much?"
- Cheshire Cat Grin: Constantly.
- Combat Tentacles: Kind of. While they're actually his limbs, his rubber-like body can sprout more of them from almost any part of his body. And those limbs can sprout even more.
- Cyclops: He usually has one large, glowing eye in the center of his head, usually visible through his armor's facemask.
- Fat Bastard: His constant obsessing over the quantitative worth of everything from the actions and loyalty of his teammates to the souls he's absorbed make him the perfect embodiment of greed among the demons.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Absorbing the Celestial Spirits backfires immensely when Lucy tries to call them back to the spirit world to save them. Franmalth finds himself being sent to the spirit world along with them, forcing him to release them to free himself. Lucy then bluffs him by pretending that Natsu is also a Celestial Spirit, which spooks Franmalth into freeing Natsu too.
- The Hyena: He laughs as he wonders how many people Jackal was able to kill at the Magic Council.
- Large Ham: A candidate for one of the largest hams in the series so far.
- Morally Bankrupt Banker: He scolded Tempester for using anti-magic particles, saying they were too expensive to use casually, and even dismissed Doriate for being too expensive to justify his usefulness. Considering he was also the one who cut a deal with Crawford, he's likely the one who manages Tartarus' finances.
- Narm: In-Universe: when he transforms with Hades' soul, both Lucy and Natsu points out that he's not threatening at all and even ridicolous, in stark contrast to Hades menacing One-Winged Angel. Sadly, funny looking or not he can still kick Natsu's ass with ease.
- Nigh Invulnerable: Natsu's attacks just piss him off. He even No Sells Lightning Flame Dragon's Roar. Turns out it's because they're magic attacks and he can absorb them. Physical attacks attacks on the other hand...
- That becomes a bit of Continuity Nod when you remember that the real Hades faced down that exact same spell, with similar results (or lack thereof).
- Oh Crap: His reaction to Natsu busting in through their wall. As well as when Lucy manages to call back her spirits from him through force of will. Getting tricked by Lucy into thinking Natsu is a spirit that he releases his hold on him and Natsu getting around that "Magic Won't Work On Me" detail by smashing him with a rock.
- Overly-Long Tongue: And it tends to wag and dangle out of his mouth while he laughs.
- Rubber Man: His limbs can stretch out to grab something at the opposite end of the room. Very helpful, for The Assimilator.
- Spikes of Villainy: Can be seen once he bursts out of his armor.
- Superpower Lottery: His role as The Assimilator gives him the potential to make him one of the most dangerous enemies yet in the series, if he wasn't such a damn Cloud Cuckoo Lander. To put things into perspective, he's able to absorb an indefinite amount of souls, including Celestial Spirits, as well as Hades, the Arc Villain of Sirius Island.
- Tempting Fate: No more than a few seconds after reassuring Crawford that he was safe, cue Natsu knocking down their wall.
- Turns Red: Whipping out his 'most powerful soul' draws an Oh Crap out of Natsu, Lucy, Happy, and Carla. Did we mention that it's Hades?
- Villainous Breakdown: While he was never quite composed to begin with, he goes completely berserk when he realizes the Face project failed.
- You Keep Using That Word: During an exchange with Natsu.
Natsu: "By the way, Carla isn't a rat either, in case you were wondering."
Franmalth: "I KNOW THAT YOU IDIOT!"
- Your Soul Is Mine: The way his curse works? He doesn't just absorb your body, and your powers. According to him, he absorbs you. ALL of you, soul included.
A large, Multi-Armed and Dangerous
member of the Nine Demon Gates known as the "Child Slicer
". He was the one who chopped up the village Gray and Juvia were sent to, as well as the one Kyouka dispatched to manually activate Face following Crawford's death, and has to defend Face when Wendy goes to try to deactivate it.
- Absurdly Sharp Blade: His Curse involves these.
- Ax-Crazy: Quite eager to start slaughtering humans. His epithet "Child Slicer" doesn't help, and implies that he was the one who cut up the entire town Gray and Juvia went to. Definitely proves it during his fight with Wendy.
- Blood Knight: Unlike Torafusa, he states he doesn't care about demon dignity as long as he can fight something.
- Child Hater: He didn't take Wendy seriously at all, even going so far as to refer to her as 'midget.'
- Cluster F-Bomb: Even more than Jackal. Ezel swears like a sailor in one translation.
- Combat Tentacles: His tentacle-like limbs can be used like this.
- I'm a Humanitarian: He was going to eat Carla.
- Irony: His epithet in Japanese refers to a demon-slaying sword.
- Karmic Death: His nickname is "Child Slicer" and is the one who activated Face. He's then defeated by Wendy, a child, and apparently dies in the explosion following Face's self-destruction mechanism.
- Kick the Dog: He was about to crush Wendy underneath his Combat Tentacles, until he got the bright idea of wanting to eat Carla after Carla tried to save Wendy. Bad idea.
- Mr. Exposition: He explained to Wendy how Face worked... including the 'ethernano' in the air surrounding it. What kind of Dragon Slayer is Wendy, again?
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Four arms and seven tentacles used as legs.
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Ezel is responsible for having Wendy go from Tag Along Kid to a full-fledged Dragon Slayer, after his attempt to eat Carla, prompting her to eat the air surrounding Face, unlocking her Dragon Force.
- One-Winged Angel: His "Slasher Form" has him gaining bigger fangs, a samuraiesque armor and huge black blades in lieu of his arms. However, is still not enough to defeat Wendy's Dragon Force.
- Oh Crap: His reaction to sees that his swords can't cut through Wendy's increasing wind right before she blasts him away with the Dragon Force.
- Shout-Out: His surname and attacks refers to the five greatest Japanese swords: Douji Giri, Onimaru, Juzumaru, Odenta and Mikazuchi. Only the first three were directly referred to.
- Storm of Blades: His Curse involves huge, invisible Absurdly Sharp Blades that seem to extend from his hands.
- Would Hurt a Child: Lives up to his moniker of 'Child Slicer' during his fight with Wendy.
- You Fight Like a Cow: He spent the entire fight against Wendy taunting her, and was about to end it with a Kick the Dog to Carla. Comes back to bite him in the ass, hard.
Tartarus Curse: Macro Guild Mark:
A member of the Nine Demon Gates of Tartarus. Her magic allows her to manipulate the 'macra' found in the bodies of living creatures, giving her the ability to manipulate the movements and actions
of those under her control. She is also tasked with killing former members of the Magic Council, as well as finding the location of Face.
- Absolute Cleavage: Just as much as Kyouka.
- Badass: Anyone who can reduce Elfman to Inelegant Blubbering, destroy the Fairy Tail headquarters (and almost succeed in killing off the entire guild if not for Cana), and then fight one of Fairy Tail's best mages while barely taking a scratch more than deserves this title.
"In a demon's story... there's no such thing as mercy."
- Badass Bookworm: Enjoys good stories, though she finds the stories written by humans boring.
- Berserk Button: Do not, in her own words, embarrass her in front of Kyouka.
- Clothing Damage: Her entire Minidress of Power gets ripped in two and becomes little more than Detached Sleeves as a result of going One-Winged Angel. More runes appear on her now-bare chest, just so that it still doesn't show anything.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: She was already kicking Mirajane's ass. But once Mirajane destroyed the resurrection labs and used her Satan Soul: Sitri form, Sayla whipped out her own One-Winged Angel form... and blew Mirajane's Sitri form away. Ends up on the receiving end when Mirajane puppeteers Elfman (with Seilah's own Curse no less) into taking out Seilah with one blow when Seilah was distracted.
- Cute Monster Girl: She's the most human looking of the group next to Silver (and since his appearance is stated to be his "human form", he probably has a more demonic-looking original form, making Seilah the member of the group whose default appearance is most human-like).
- Dark Action Girl: She's able to give Mirajane one hell of a fight.
- Deal with the Devil: Invoked after Elfman begged her to stop using his body to strangle Lisanna.
"'Beg?' When a human begs something of a demon... that's when he must offer the demon their soul. Are you prepared to sell me your soul?"
- Did Not See That Coming: Did not expect Fairy Tail to escape the bomb placed in the guild due to Cana's magic, with the three Exceed carrying the cards of the members towards their base. Her reaction speaks volumes. She gets it again at the tail end of her fight with Mirajane since she's batting Mira around she doesn't realize what Mira's up to before Mira commands Elfman to drop down right on top of her.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Her Zettai Ryouiki are literally the only thing on her feet, besides nail polish.
- Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Black hair, but close enough.
- Emotionless Girl: Generally a pretty quiet, reserved character. Until her Berserk Button is pushed...
- Eyes Do Not Belong There: On the palms of her hands in her One-Winged Angel form. Used to perform a Kamehame Hadouken.
- Forced to Watch: Her magic isn't mind control, meaning Elfman is fully aware of the fact that he was being forced to strangle Lisanna, invoking this trope.
- Femme Fatalons: Complete with nail polish.
- Fur and Loathing: Part of her Minidress of Power appears to have been made from leopard skin, or something similar.
- Hair Decoration: A hairband that runs perpendicular to her horns.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Mirajane uses Seilah's own signature Curse to puppeteer Elfman (which was only possible because Seilah used Macro on him already making this a double example) into striking down Seilah when she was too busy trying to finish off Mirajane.
- Horned Humanoid: Aside from the markings, this is one of the only physical features she has that doesn't look entirely human.
- I Have Your Sister: Her leverage over Elfman, to get him to drop a Fantastic Nuke lacrima in Fairy Tail's guild hall. Somewhat justified, though, in the sense that he no longer has a say in the matter.
- Impossibly-Low Neckline: How the hell does that Minidress of Power stay up?
- Laser-Guided Karma: Just like Rustyrose, her defeat comes at the hands of someone she previously beat. In this case Elfman and ironically once again through someone taking control of him.
- Night of the Living Mooks: Played with; she openly admits that corpses are harder for her to control than living People Puppets. As she demonstrates with the corpse of a freshly-slain ex-Magic Councillor, and then with Elfman.
- Necessary Drawback: When she goes One-Winged Angel she uses all her power in that form, weakening her control over others.
- No Sell: On the giving and receiving end of this. Mirajane can't use "Takeover" on her and she can't use Macro on Mirajane. She resorts to using Macro on herself to go One-Winged Angel. Mirajane was able to use "Takeover" to steal Seilah's Macro Curse, leading to Seilah's defeat.
- Oh Crap: To say she reacts badly to Cana saving the guild and allowing Fairy Tail to actually counter and attack is an understatement.
"This is... My fault..."
- One-Winged Angel: Accessed by using Macro on herself and removing her limiter. Her horns grow twice as large, she gains Blank White Eyes (with Extra Eyes elsewhere on her body, including the palms of her hands, her Minidress of Power splits into Detached Sleeves, and she gains even more runes on her body. Her One-Winged Angel form is borderline Eldritch Abomination levels of freaky-looking.
- People Puppets: By manipulating the "Macra" inside people, she can control them. She notes that it's easier to do this with living beings than with corpses.
- Psycho Lesbian: Seems to be in a sexual relationship with Kyouka. Even more so when she is furious at Elfman for "embarrassing" her in front of Kyouka.
- Psychotic Smirk: Right before the Fantastic Nuke lacrima she ordered Elfman to plant in Fairy Tail's headquarters detonates.
- Sadistic Choice: See I Have Your Sister. She's making Elfman choose between his family and his guild.
- She's Got Legs: And Mashima loves showing them off.
- Spell My Name with an S: She has been called "Seira" and "Sayla".
- The Stoic: She shows no expression, not even sadistic glee, as she forces Elfman to strangle his sister Lisanna.
- Superpower Lottery: Doesn't get much more broken than People Puppets.
- Tattooed Crook: She has markings on her forehead and shoulders, though they appear more to be runes of some kind, rather than tattoos.
- Throw the Book at Them: Is shown doing this to Mirajane, with several floating books all pelting her at once.
- Wicked Cultured: Not only is she a Badass Bookworm, she constantly refers to everything going on around her as if it were the plot of one of her stories, even going so far as to as to comment on events as if she were critiquing a book.
"Ezel-san, stories have a proper sequence. This is the prologue... no... the preface, rather."
- Yandere: Wanting to kill Lisanna in front of Mirajane just because Elfman "embarrassed" her in front of Kyouka clinches it.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Type A.
Guild Mark: Forehead
A member of the Nine Demon Gates of Tartarus who strongly resembles a walking skeleton. He has a tendency to speak in fancy, almost poetic phrases
, and is known as the 'Black Monk of Tartarus
.' He was sent to intercept Lucy and Wendy, who were in Tartarus' control room.
See Fairy Tail Other Guilds
See Fairy Tail Others
under Former Council Members
The medical technician of Tartarus, and a member of the 'Kyouka Squad.' She's the one in charge of resurrecting Tartarus members when they are defeated
. She's a hyperactive girl with rabbit-like features
, and seems to be the Plucky Comic Relief
- All Girls Want Bad Boys: Extremely flirtatious towards Jackal and Tempester. Much to Jackal's annoyance.
- Cute and Psycho: Shows shades of this towards Mirajane, saying she's going to 'turn her into a caterpillar', unlike what she did with Minerva.
- Do Not Taunt Cthulhu: Granted she didn't know it would happen, but seriously? Taunting Mirajane, AKA, The Demon of Fairy Tail!?
- Explaining Your Power to the Enemy: Lampshaded by Seilah; if she had kept her mouth shut about the way Tartarus' Resurrective Immortality works, Mirajane might not have blown up their Healing Vats. Might have been why Seilah didn't exactly try very hard to avoid hitting her with her Kamehame Hadouken while she was in her One-Winged Angel form.
- Fangirl: In-universe, towards the male members of Tartarus. Almost to the point of parody.
- Fur and Loathing: A fluffy coat, complete with pom-poms on the front.
- Human Hummingbird: 'Human' being a term applied loosely, of course.
- Genki Girl: In stark contrast to the rest of Tartarus.
- Green-Eyed Monster: Towards Mirajane. Seems to be pretty much the only reason she wanted to ruin her appearance.
- Little Bit Beastly: Rabbit ears. That is all.
- Mad Scientist: She's the one who heals the other demons, as well as creates new ones.
- No Sense of Personal Space: How she manages to get away with hanging on Jackal of all people is anyone's guess.
- Oh Crap: She's scared shitless when her attempt to use Demon Particles on Mirajane only made her wake up from unconsciousness because she already possessed Demon Particles. She's also left catatonic when Seilah is defeated.
- Otaku: When you call Jackal 'kawaii' while squeeing, you definitely qualify.
- Perky Female Minion: Her fangirl tendencies wouldn't be out of place in any other guild if she weren't a Cute and Psycho demon.
- Plucky Comic Relief: Compared to the rest of Tartarus? Yes.
- Proper Tights with a Skirt: Worn underneath a fluffy, white coat.
- Say It with Hearts: While fawning over Jackal and Tempester.
- Squee: Constantly, around Tartarus' guys.
- Weak, but Skilled: Lamy herself doesn't appear to have any Curse, and if she does have one, it must not be worth using in combat. Despite this, she's a very skilled Evil Genius who is in charge of Tartarus' resurrection labs, called 'Hell's Core,' and is the one the other demons trust to patch them up if they lose a fight.
The keeper of E.N.D.'s Book, and known as the 'Demon King.' He's also the one who came up with the technology Lamy used to bring back the demons
following their defeat, as well as to create new demons from humans.
