EdolasA world parallel to Earth-land, where the bulk of Fairy Tail takes place. It is inhabited entirely by counterparts of characters throughout the series. However, magic is limited in Edolas and treated as a precious resource.Here be spoilers.
open/close all folders
- Badass Normal: Edolas humans have no innate magical powers, so they have to rely on magical tools. They are not less badass for it though.
- Bizarro Universe: Many characters have reversed personalities from their Earthland counterparts. For example, Gray wears tons of clothes and is madly in love with Juvia, who can't stand him.
- Dark Is Not Evil: In a sense. Fairy Tail technically exists as a 'dark' guild due to lack of official sanction from the Edolas government, but that doesn't mean they're evil.
- Foreshadowing: Wendy and Carla stumble upon a house inside a forest willow that is inhabited by nobody, but looks suspiciously like Porylusica's choice of residence back on Earthland. Some time later, Porlyusica reveals she is originally from Edolas, and while it's never clearly stated whose house that was, the fact that Wendy found and took some feminine clothing meant to fit a younger girl was probably a good indicator that the place was Porlyusica's long-since abandoned childhood home.
- Not So Different: Although superficially the Edolas counterparts seem to be completely different than the Earth-land ones, it turns out they are really quite similar. We see this most prominently with Lucy, Jellal, Erza, and Gajeel, and then with Fairy Tail as a whole.
Kingdom of Edolas
Voiced by: Shinpachi Tsuji (JP), R Bruce Elliott (EN)
The king of Edolas. He is obsessed with bestowing an everlasting supply of magic on his kingdom, and he tries to do so by stealing magic from Earth-land through inter-dimensional portals called Anima, one of which transforms the entire Fairy Tail guild into a giant lacrima crystal.
- Arc Villain: The main antagonist of the Edolas arc, where he converts almost the entire Fairy Tail guild into a massive lacrima crystal and attempts to slam it into the native Exceed race's city Extalia, destroying both in an insane plot to bestow eternal magic power onto his world.
- Badass Long Robe: His royal garb makes him quite an intimidating-looking villain.
- Beard of Evil: He sports one of the more impressive villain beards in the series.
- The Caligula: This king is crazy enough to a.) Convert the denizens of an alternate dimension into fuel for his world's magic; b.) Commit mass genocide on his own people's "gods" to carry out his plan; and c.) Keep an entire amusement park in his castle.
- Evil Counterpart: He serves as one for his son, Jellal (a.k.a. Mystogan): Faust is willing to steal Earth-land's race to ensure his own kingdom thrives, while Jellal willingly destroys his own world in order to rebuild it to save Earth-land. The anime also reveals him to be a taller, crazier, eviller version of Makarov.
- Evil Is Hammy: As someone who is quite insane, he's prone to making grand, over-the-top speeches about his evil plans.
- Evil Old Folks: He's an old man who plans to sacrifice countless innocents for his own selfish desires.
- The Exile: In the anime, he goes into exile after being tried by his son.
- Greed: He isn't happy with "just enough" magical power for his kingdom; he wants infinite magical power, and he will do anything to achieve it.
- Humiliation Conga: After getting the crap beaten out of him, he nearly pisses his pants when confronted with the image of three incredibly large dragons, is then tied to a post and forced to be a prisoner of "Great Demon Lord Dragneel", and later gets ignored and buried underneath some rubble. The anime extends his punishment by getting him exiled permanently.
- Humble Pie: In the anime, he mellows out considerably after Natsu defeats him. He even asks Natsu if guilds are fun, which tips Natsu off to who his Earth-land counterpart could be.note
- Humongous Mecha: He pilots a dragon-shaped mecha called Doroma Anim. It uses uses Magitek and Anti-Magic, and has defenses as strong as a real dragon's.
- I Have No Son: Outright states it to his son Jellal (Mystogan), who left their world specifically to foil his plans.
- Kick the Dog: Natsu and co. take it very badly when he breaks off some of the lacrima made from their friends. Later, he burns Coco's legs when she protests to firing the Dragon Chain Cannon when Panther Lily is in the line of fire. This trope is played in a literal sense too thanks to Coco's Animal Motif.
- Nice Hat: He wears a large, pope-like hat with a symbol resembling a hammer and sickle.
- Rage Against the Heavens: He turns a bunch of what are effectively angels into magic power, then, after that stunning display of heresy, proceeds to make a crazy speech about how his kingdom needs to kill the Queen of heaven.
- Staff of Authority: He carries a staff that also fires bolts of magic energy.
- The Starscream: He plans to overthrow Queen Chagot, the "god" of his world, by annihilating her entire race using the lacrima made from the people of Magnolia.
See his entry on the Other Fairy Tail Members page as Mystogan.
Edolas Royal Military
Royal Military in General
- Anti-Villain: They're not inherently evil just because they plan to turn Fairy Tail's friends into magic energy; they're just desperate because they believe their world cannot survive without magic.
- Badass Normal: Their magic lies solely in their weaponry, yet they're fully capable of taking on Fairy Tail's strongest team blow-for-blow.
- Heel–Face Turn: Their change of heart after being defeated is more evident in the anime, where they gladly carry out their sentences for their crimes by helping rebuild their world.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad: The Royal Military Commanders serve as this.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Sadistic and/or violent tendencies aside, they genuinely believe that sacrificing the people of Earth-land will save their world. Because of their concern for their people, the anime adaptation shows Mystogan giving them a more lenient punishment than their much more self-centered former king Faust.
Commander Panther Lily

"Fairy Hunter" Commander Erza Knightwalker
Voiced by: Sayaka Ohara (JP), Colleen Clinkenbeard (EN)
Erza Scarlet's Edolas counterpart, and Commander of the Second Magical Warfare Division in the Royal Military. Knightwalker is a ruthless warrior who has hunted down a great many magic guilds. She wields a magical spear called Ten Commandments, which can change its form and abilities on her command.
- Anti-Magic: Rune Save, one of her Ten Commandments' forms, is able to completely cut through her opponents' magic.
- Bare Your Midriff: She wears a skimpy Chainmail Bikini in contrast to Erza, whose customary attire is full battle armor.
- Blade on a Stick: Her spear, Ten Commandments, is a Morph Weapon with different powers for each form.
- BFG: One of her Ten Commandments' forms.
- Continuity Cameo: Her spear, the Ten Commandments, is based on the sword of the same name from Rave Master. It even has the same abilities.
- Dark Action Girl: Being Erza Scarlet's Edolas counterpart and a Sociopathic Soldier who fights Scarlet to a draw before a Heel–Face Turn, she definitely counts.
- Dual Wielding: Her spear's Blue Crimson form splits it into two weapons with fire and ice magic.
- Elemental Powers: Several of her Ten Commandments' forms have these powers, including Blue Crimson, Mel Force, and Gravity Core.
- Evil Counterpart: She is literally a sociopathic version of Erza Scarlet. As they fight, however, Scarlet realizes that she and Knightwalker are Not So Different, since Knightwalker would also go to great lengths for her people.
- Evil Redhead: She has long, scarlet hair just like her Earth-land counterpart, but she's far from moral.
- Evil Sounds Deep: She takes Erza's Contralto of Danger and uses it to more intimidating effect.
- Fiery Redhead: She's even more Hot-Blooded than Earth-land's Erza.
- Hand-or-Object Underwear: She covers herself with her scarf after Scarlet steals her top in the manga, which barely covers her chest.
- Important Haircut: After Scarlet successfully impersonates her to trick Faust, Knightwalker lops her hair down to a bob to keep her from doing it again.
- Infinity +1 Sword: Her Sacred Spear: Ravelt is the Ten Commandments' most powerful form. However, it shatters after going up against Scarlet's equally powerful Armadura Fairy armor.
- Kick the Dog: She torments Earth-land's Lucy by relishing in her cruel nature while preparing to execute her, knowing fully well that she resembles someone Lucy dearly admires.
- Last-Name Basis: She and Erza Scarlet do this mutually, since they detest that the other is sided with the enemy. They both drop this when they decide they're Not So Different.
- Leotard of Power: This becomes her outfit after getting her armor stolen by Scarlet.
- Luke Nounverber: Her name is Erza Knightwalker.
- Mirror Match: Her fights with Scarlet boil down to this. The two are evenly matched throughout, and even use the same basic type of magic. In the end, neither are able to best each other, and their match ends in a draw.
- Peek-a-Bangs: She covers her right eye with her hair before cutting it.
- Red Baron: She is known as "Fairy Hunter" Erza, since she has killed more members of her world's Fairy Tail than any other.
- Scarf of Asskicking: Her combat armor comes with a scarf.
- Sociopathic Soldier: She herself says she enjoys watching others suffer and is proud that she killed more Fairy Tail members than anyone else.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Her name is spelled "Nightwalker" in the manga, but "Knightwalker" elsewhere.
- Stripperiffic: She wears a skimpy Chainmail Bikini for most appearances.
- Talking the Monster to Death: Once Scarlet points out that they are still fighting even after using up all their magic, thus proving that her people don't need magic to survive, she's able to talk Knightwalker out of dragging their match on any further.
Voiced by: Eiji Miyashita (JP), Josh Grelle (EN)
Commander of the Third Magical Warfare Division in the Royal Military. He keeps a wand called the Command Tact that lets him control everything in Faust's indoor amusement park.
- Ambiguously Gay: Not only does he ignore Lucy's sexy distraction, but he and Sugar Boy share a tender moment when they think it's The End of the World as We Know It in the anime.
- Bullying a Dragon: He laughs at the prospect of Lucy being tortured and then executed, just to piss Natsu off. This comes back to bite him in the ass once Natsu gets loose.
- Jerkass: He has absolutely zero care for others, and is a complete Troll who loves making his enemies think they have an advantage before turning the tables.
- Lack of Empathy: The other commanders at least have some sense of loyalty to king or country that motivates their actions. Hughes just likes the idea of having infinite magic to play with, Magnolia's population be damned.
- Marionette Master: His Command Tact lets him control just about everything around him, including water and roller coasters.
- Not Distracted by the Sexy: Hughes acts completely stone-faced about Lucy acting sexy in front of him and attacks her.
- Oh, Crap!: He did not expect Natsu's Unstoppable Rage.
- Psychopathic Manchild: He entertains himself by torturing victims in his Amusement Park of Doom.
- Skunk Stripe: He's got a white stripe in his hair.

Commander Sugar Boy
Commander of the Fourth Magical Warfare Division in the Royal Military. His sword, Rosa Espada, can turn anything it touches into a liquid.
Voiced by: Yoshimitsu Shimoyama (JP), Duncan Brannan (EN)
- Affably Evil: He doesn't display any noticeable psychotic tendencies and is fairly polite to Gray.
- Ambiguously Gay: Though he states that he doesn't like holding hands with another man.
- Anime Hair: He has an especially ridiculous pompadour.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite being incredibly hammy, he's actually the sanest and most reasonable of all the Commanders.
- Cool Sword: Rosa Espada, which can cause anything it touches to soften and melt.
- Flight: Amusingly, he has no idea how he does this. He just does.
- Fluffy the Terrible: Sugarboy isn't exactly a name that inspires terror in the hearts of evildoers.
- Heart Is an Awesome Power: A sword that softens things may seem weak, but is far more dangerous and trickier than it looks.
- Lantern Jaw of Justice: Subverted in that he's a villain.
- Non-Standard Character Design: He almost looks like a parody of some Western Animation Knight in Shining Armor, with the chiseled jawbone, manly jaw and sharp eyes.
- Perma-Stubble: His chin is already quite prominent, the fuzz just makes it more so.
- Real Men Wear Pink: His armor is colored pink.
- Underwear of Power: He wears greaves, a breastplate, gauntlets, bracers, pauldrons...but not pants.
- Weaksauce Weakness: While Rosa Espada makes things softer, it doesn't alter their other characteristics (for example, soft ice is still slippery and cold).
Voiced by: Takashi Matsuyama (JP), Brad Venable (EN)
Chief of Staff of the Royal Military. He keeps multiple magic potions that allow him to cast a variety of spells.
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Turns himself into a giant octopus to fight Lucy.
- Combat Tentacles: In his octopus form, naturally.
- Elemental Powers: He fights with magical liquids that turn into elements like fire or wind when used in battle.
- Evil Genius: Well, he is a Mad Scientist after all.
- Evil Old Folks: He's an unpleasant old man who oversees the torture of the Dragon Slayers.
- Kick the Dog: He has no problems killing Coco to get the key to the Dragon Chain Cannon.
- Mad Scientist: He seems to be partially responsible for all the crazy weapons Edolas has.
- Miniature Senior Citizens: In a hunched, creepier way than usual.
- One-Winged Angel: Drinking his "Octopus Liquid" turns him into a giant octopus monster.
- Speech Impediment: He has an extremely noticeable lisp, though it's absent in the English version.
- Would Hurt a Child: Not only does he torture Wendy alongside Natsu to extract their magic, he also tries killing his own aide, Coco, for insubordination.
Voiced by: Rie Murakawa (JP), Felecia Angelle (EN)Aide to the Chief of Staff in the Royal Military. She also manages the Legions, large winged beasts that are used in the military as mounts.
- Animal Motifs: Has the distinct resemblance of a dog, and her constant running around is often compared to that of an excitable puppy.
- Big Damn Heroes: Rescues Natsu, Gray, and Erza from certain execution by the army atop her herd of Legions.
- Blush Sticker: To go with her cute, puppy-like appearance.
- Break the Cutie: She protests when she finds out Faust plans to sacrifice Panther Lily for his own ends. Faust's response is to fry her legs.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Despite having access to shoes, Coco prefers to go barefoot everywhere.
- Easily Forgiven: In the anime, Mystogan lets Coco off the hook without so much as a slap on the wrist due to her Heel–Face Turn, unlike her fellow Royal Military companions, who are sentenced to help rebuild the city destroyed by their actions.
- Genki Girl: She's very hyperactive, sprinting from one end of Faust's throne room to the other just to respond to a question.
- Giant Flyer: She rides a massive, winged beast called a Legion.
- Hair Decorations: She has a ponytail tied with a blue pearl.
- Heel–Face Turn: She loves her friends more than sacrificing them for eternal magic and betrays the military to help Fairy Tail.
- Human Hummingbird: She runs so quickly, her legs are barely visible.
- Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Not the main reason she switches sides, but Faust's ruthlessness in punishing her just for sticking up for Panther Lily causes her to question whether they're doing the right thing.
- My Country, Right or Wrong: Even after she's mistreated by King Faust, her loyalty to her country causes her to hesitate giving the key to the Draconic Chain Cannon to Fairy Tail, since she doesn't want Panther Lily to be killed, but she also doesn't want to surrender the lacrima made up of Fairy Tail's friends. Eventually, seeing Fairy Tail's friendship inspires her to change sides.
- Nice Girl: On top of being young and plucky, she's also a sweetheart who loves her comrades.
- Nice Hat: Wears green headgear with long, floppy "ears".
- Non-Action Guy: She is the only member of the military who has no weapons or fighting experience of her own.
- Perky Female Minion: She is the most chipper member of the Royal Military.
- Token Good Teammate: While her comrades have good intentions for their country, Coco is the only member of the Edolas Royal Military who values her friends' lives, paving the way for her eventual Heel–Face Turn.
Fairy TailThe Edolas version of the Fairy Tail guild. Because magic is mostly outlawed outside the kingdom, they exist as a dark guild on the run from the royal military, and are the only magic guild left standing in Edolas.
Fairy Tail in General
- Alternate Self: All of the guilds' members are this to Earth-land's Fairy Tail, each having one or more of their character traits reversed (Lucy is a brutish Jerkass, Natsu is a wimp who loves vehicles, Gray is an over-dresser in love with Juvia, etc.).
- Badass Normal: They don't have any magic of their own, but with their magic weapons, they have enough mettle to take the royal military head-on.
- Dark Is Not Evil: They may be a dark guild, but they cherish their guildmates just as much as their Earth-land counterparts do, and lend an ear and a helping hand to their Earth-land counterparts on multiple occasions.
- Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: In the anime, all the women in the guild force the men to move their guildhall by hand after all the magic in Edolas disappears.
- In Spite of a Nail: The guild's members are all more or less the same in Edolas as they are in Earth-land, with the exception of Erza, who wound up with the royal military, and (in the anime) Makarov, who is the king.
- Not So Different: Even though they're different from the main series' Fairy Tail on the surface, they're the same rowdy, loyal bunch of friends in any world.
- Pyrrhic Victory: Though they succeed in fending off the military, the victory is soured by the loss of magic in Edolas, which they take to mean the end of their world.
- Stern Chase: They are constantly hunted by the Royal Military, and have modified their guild hall to burrow underground and make quick escapes.
Lucy Heartfilia's Edolas counterpart. She's tough-as-nails, masculine and garners a lot of respect in her guild through intimidation. She's also fierce rivals with Edolas!Levy.
- Action Girl: Like her Earthland counterpart.
- Bare Your Midriff: Averted in the anime.
- Berserk Button: Don't call her "Scary-Lucy".
- Dominatrix: She has the uniform, the whip, and Natsu.
- Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: Face it, Lucy's treatment of Natsu probably wouldn't have the same effect if it was the other way round...
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Given the slightest provocation she will assault Natsu.
- Hell-Bent for Leather: To play up her being Hotter and Sexier than Earth-land!Lucy, she wears leather pants and a corset.
- Important Haircut: To distinguish herself from Earth-land!Lucy.
- In Universe Nickname: Called "Scary-Lucy" by most of the Earth-land!Team Natsu, much to her annoyance.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite being violent and mean, she's a good person when it counts.
- The Lad-ette: Mostly fits the bill, though she's never seen drinking or making sexual remarks.
- The Rival: To Levy.
- Shameless Fanservice Girl: She tries to show Earth-land!Natsu her naked body. Fortunately, Earth-land!Lucy stops her.
- Stripperific: In the manga, at least.
- Tsundere: Lucy may batter Natsu for no reason, but on the other hand she seems to genuinely worry for him in her first appearance. This or it is just an act to take him by surprise, which is not unlikely.
- Whip It Good: Just like her Earth-land counterpart.
- Wrestler in All of Us: Lucy's 48 techniques.
Natsu Dragneel's Edolas counterpart. Unlike his Earth-land self, this Natsu shines while riding vehicles, and is Fairy Tail's transportation expert. Once he steps out of a vehicle, however, he turns into a sniveling wimp.
- Badass Driver: Big time, he's comparable in power to Earth-land!Natsu in one.
- Badass Decay: Once out of a vehicle.
- Battle Boomerang: In the anime.
- Extreme Doormat: Seems to be this for Lucy. So much so that the entire guild gasps in shock when Earth-land!Natsu so much as talks back to her in the anime.
- Goggles Do Nothing: He wears goggles but doesn't really need them considering he drives around inside a car...
Voiced by: Yuuichi Nakamura (JP), Newton Pittman (EN)
Gray Fullbuster's Edolas counterpart. He wears layers upon layers of clothing, and has a very one-sided attraction to Edolas' Juvia.
- Blade on a Stick: His Weapon of Choice is a magic spear.
- Cowardly Lion: He's terrified of the royal kingdom, but ultimately helps in the fight in the end.
- Dogged Nice Guy: He is this as a result of his and Juvia's roles being switched.
- Love Freak: Completely and hopelessly head-over-heels in love with Juvia.
- Rummage Sale Reject: In complete contrast to Gray from Earth-land, this Gray wears tons of unmatching clothes.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Despite his Japanese name being pronounced something akin to "soh-ROOJ", His surname is commonly spelled as "Surge".
Wendy's Edolas counterpart. She is older than her Earth-land counterpart.
- Bare Your Midriff: She shows off her navel with her tube top.
- The Cynic: Rather mild example, but she told her younger self to give up on saving her friends and not go up against the kingdom (at least at first).
- Dual Tonfas: In the anime.
- Gag Boobs: Unlike Earthland Wendy.
- Gainaxing: Her chest seems to have motion lines surrounding them in almost all appearances.
- Ms. Exposition: Less so than Lucy, though.
- Ms. Fanservice: Puberty worked wonders for Wendy, it seems.
- The Stoic: At least in comparison to Earth!Land Wendy.
Voiced by: Hiroki Yasumoto (JP), Christopher Sabat (EN)
Elfman Strauss's Edolas counterpart. He's something of a wimp, and gets bullied by his stronger guildmates.
- Cowardly Lion: Despite being a weakling, he helps fight off the royal military.
- Drop the Hammer: His Weapon of Choice is a hammer.
- Gentle Giant: He's just as big as Earth-land Elfman, and completely soft-hearted.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: Just like his Earth-land counterpart.
- Secret Secret-Keeper: Like Mirajane, he knew that Earth-land's Lisanna was impersonating their real, dead sister, but didn't say anything because Lisanna did it for their sakes.
Mirajane's Edolas counterpart.
- Averted Trope: Mirajane is the sole resident of Edolas who behaves the same way as her Earth-land counterpart currently does. Then again, Edolas!Mirajane has always acted like Earth-land!Mirajane currently does, since the latter was once a bully. It may be because Edolas!Lisanna survived, or so they initially believe. Even after figuring it out, she still acts the same.
- Bare Your Midriff: Along with Cleavage Window. The only way in which Edolas Mira differs from Earth-land Mira is that she far less conservatively dressed.
- Secret Secret-Keeper: She and Elfman knew Earth-land!Lisanna wasn't their sister all along.
Voiced by: Mai Nakahara (JP), Brina Palencia (EN)
Juvia Lockser's Edolas counterpart, who can't stand Gray.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Contrary to Earth-land Juvia, her Edolas counterpart is aloof and detached towards her admirer, Gray.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her shirt is tied just below her chest in order to show as much of her mid-section as possible.
- Curtains Match the Window: Blue hair, blue eyes.
- Dangerously Short Skirt: She shows off her legs and can kick a good amount of ass.
- Jerkass: Unlike her Earth-land counterpart, she is very foul-tempered towards everyone, Gray in particular.
- Nice Hat: She wears a tiny top hat.
- Parasol of Pain: Her weapon is a magical umbrella.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Just like Earth-land Juvia, she has blue hair.
- Adapted Out: During the guild's first scene in the manga, Vijeeter was shown to have a counterpart telling Nab to take a day off once in a while. He was not included in the anime, and his line was given to Warren.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: Jet, Droy and Elfman (the latter just like his Earth-land counterpart).
- Jerk Ass: Levy, Jet, and Droy. The latter two are constantly picking on Elfman.
- No Shirt, Long Jacket: Jet and Droy.
- Not Quite Dead: Lisanna, though not in the way it seems. It turns out the Lisanna in Edolas is actually Earth-land!Lisanna, who was believed to be dead. Ironically, the "real" Edolas!Lisanna really is Deader Than Dead.
- Posthumous Character: Fairy Tail's master, whose identity remains a mystery (if the anime is anything to go by, it's not Makarov). Also, Lisanna.
- Sickeningly Sweethearts: Bisca and Alzack, who make no bones about professing their feelings for one another where their Earthland counterparts Cannot Spit It Out.
- Those Two Guys: Jet and Droy, Macao and Wakaba, and Max and Warren. The latter two pairs (barring Mirajane) are the most similar to their Earth!Land counterparts.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: See Adapted Out above. After that scene, Edolas Vijeeter never appeared again.
- Also, we never see Laki's counterpart; nor Laxus' nor any of the Raijin Tribe's, nor Gildarts'. Considering that they said that half of their guild was killed by Knightwalker…
ExceedThe Exceed are a race of winged cat-like creatures, and the species Happy and Carla come from. From their floating city of Extalia, they are revered as holy beings due to their ability to contain magic in their bodies, which humans from Edolas cannot do.
Exceed in General
- Back for the Finale: The entire race lays low until the penultimate chapter of the manga after their role has been fulfilled. They reappear to lend their magic power to a continent-wide link used to aid the casting of Fairy Sphere against Acnologia.
- The Bus Came Back: With Extalia gone, the Exceeds leave to establish a new settlement upon coming to Earth-land and aren't seen again for quite some time until the finale. They show up once more in a side novel, where Happy protects their village.
- Cats Are Magic: Exceed are the only creatures in Edolas capable of harboring magic energy as an ability. This helps lend some credibility to them being viewed by humans as a divine race.
- Cats Are Mean: Their supposed divinity has gone straight to their heads to the point that they look down on humans and cast out anyone who objects to their almighty Queen. Case in point, when Wendy and Carla try to warn them of their kingdom's destruction at the hands of the human King Faust, their first response is to ridicule and stone them. Once the ruse is shattered and they realize that they are Unwitting Pawns in Faust's plans, however, their newfound humility gives way to an even greater sense of kindness.
- Cat Folk: They may look like cats, but they act, dress, and run a society just like any human would.
- Doomed Hometown: Extalia is the center for the Exceeds.
- The Exile: Any Exceed who objects to Queen Chagot's rules are exiled from Extalia.
- Easily Forgiven: A Double Subversion. Carla doesn't initially forgive them for what they did, but she eventually reconsiders when Chagot explains about her kind's ruse.
- Fantastic Racism: The Exceeds don't get along well with humans, but it later turns out to be a ruse by Chagot.
- Fantastic Slurs: Exceed who are exiled from Extalia are considered "Fallen".
- Flight: All Exceed share the common Aera ability, allowing them to grow white, feathery wings to fly.
- God Guise: Enforced by the Queen's court, who devised the ruse that Exceed are angels and their ruler is a god so humans would stop picking on them. They've kept the façade up for so long that most of the younger Exceed population have actually bought into the ruse themselves.
- Humble Pie: The vast majority of Exceed have spent their whole lives arrogantly certain of their own superiority to humans and confident in their Queen's divine might that when Chagot herself breaks the news that no Exceed is as powerful as they've been led to believe, and when a giant lacrima is about to collide with their city, they realize just how screwed they are thanks to them being Faust's Unwitting Pawns. However, they also realize this hardly makes them powerless when they rally behind Fairy Tail to push the lacrima away.
- Living Battery: Because Exceed are the only Edolas natives who are capable of harboring magic, Faust's endgame is to convert them into crystallized lacrima to fuel his kingdom.
- Mass "Oh, Crap!": The Exceeds are utterly stunned when they realize that Faust is about to use the giant lacrima to destroy Extalia and use his endgame on them.
- Unwitting Pawn: They never realize that Faust is planning to annihilate Extalia using the lacrima made from the people of Magnolia, until it's too late.
- Walking the Earth: After being uprooted from Edolas to Earth-land, they decide to search for the remaining Exceed children who were born there.
- You Can't Go Home Again: With Extalia's destruction and Mystogan using the last of Edolas's magic to uproot them to Earth-land, the Exceeds can no longer call Edolas their home, not even Happy, Carla, and Panther Lily.

The ruler of Extalia and queen of the Exceed, revered as a god in Edolas. Unknown to Carla, she is also Carla's mother.
- Barefoot Cartoon Animal: Just like the other Exceed, she doesn't wear any shoes.
- Broken Angel: Insofar as the Exceed are only superficially divine beings in Edolas, Chagot turns out to be this, having only a single wing.
- Dirty Business: Although she acted like an all-powerful god to protect her people, she deeply regretted all the misery she caused to those who were exiled, such as Happy's parents, Panther Lily, and her own daughter.
- God Guise: She conned everybody into thinking she is a god. Part of the trick was that she could see into the future and predict when people would die, which convinced everyone into thinking she could cause their deaths.
- God Save Us from the Queen!: Subverted. She is a Reasonable Authority Figure and quite aware that both Edolas and Extalia are going crazy.
- Greater-Scope Villain: Subverted; the protagonists and the humans in Edolas initially beleive her to be the main antagonist, but Chagot is an Unwitting Pawn to Faust.
- Long-Lost Relative: While Carla doesn't know it, Chagot is revealed to be her mother.
- Luke, I Am Your Father: She is Carla's mother. However, she holds off on telling her this.
- Psychic Powers: The power of foresight, which is passed down to her daughter Carla.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: She's very sound in judgment and willing to listen to reason.
- Requisite Royal Regalia: She's dressed like Queen Elizabeth.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: She goes to help her people and Fairy Tail push away the lacrima Faust tries to collide with Extalia, despite only having one wing and falling when she's only halfway there.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: By bluffing about murdering the Dragon Slayers and lying about the Exceed being godly beings and threatening the human kingdom below with destruction to protect her people, she would inadvertently cause Carla to carry out her "mission" to kill the Dragon Slayers and ultimately lead to Faust declaring an Enemy Civil War against them.
- Walking Spoiler: She is set up as the Greater-Scope Villain of the Edolas arc before her true identity and motives are revealed.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: She lied about the Exceed being godly beings and constantly threatened the human kingdom below with destruction in order to protect the Exceeds.
- The Woman Wearing the Queenly Mask: She presents herself as a god who is beloved by her people and feared by the humans of Edolas, all so her race wouldn't continue to be oppressed by them. Once she reveals herself to have no actual power besides her precognition, she discards her entire regal image completely.

- Cowardly Lion: Not so much as Ichiya though. In fact, he actually looks like a lion.
- Fiery Redhead: Just like Ichiya, he is a fiery-tempered Exceed with red hair.
- Gonk: Just like...well, you get the idea.
- Large Ham: As with his Earth-land counterpart.
- Manly Tears: They start flowing out while he declares Happy and Carla to be traitors once they desert their mission. Justified since he knows full well that there is no mission for them to desert, but is forced to chase them down to keep up appearances despite knowing of their innocence.
- The Nose Knows: He uses his nose to sniff out scents.
- Verbal Tic: "Men~!"
Extalia's long-necked Minister of State.
Voiced by: Kazuma Horie (JP), Doug Burks (EN)
- Cats Are Mean: He was in charge of the program that sent Happy and Carla to Earth-land to kill Dragon Slayers, and claims to kill other humans on command. However, this is all just a lie to keep humans in check which, considering Faust, is not that bad of an idea. All in all, he's a pretty nice guy.
- Dissonant Serenity: He smiles cheerfully while talking about how humans are inferior and how the Exceeds kill them when their population grows too much. Of course, this is just part of the Jerkass Façade.
- Going Through the Motions: He never stops pumping his right fist into the air. It's so contagious that Team Natsu picks it up temporarily.
- Jerkass Façade: He pretends to be an arrogant bastard who looks down on humans just so he can maintain peace among his people.
- Long Neck: He's got a long flat head.
- Only Sane Man: Given how he's one of the few Exceeds to know the truth about the queen, he's also the first one to realize Wendy and Carla are telling the truth when they say that the humans are rebelling against them.
- Smug Snake: Subverted.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: He was part of the group that perpetuated the lie about the Exceeds' abilities.

- Adult Fear: They were the only ones of their kind to go against the "Dragon Slayer Extermination" plan.
- The Exile: They were exiled from Extalia because they objected to sending Happy's egg out to Earth-land.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Lucky often gets angry with minimal provocation. Seriously, what doesn't piss him off? Though it's largely hinted to be part of a Jerkass Façade.
- Happily Married: They seem quite happy together.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Lucky may be a jerk to Happy but he does mean well.
- Large Ham: Lucky can be quite dramatic.
- Long-Lost Relative: Who would've thought that they would've turned out to be Happy's parents?
- Luke, I Am Your Father: They are Happy's parents, although he directly doesn't know this.
- Manly Tears: Lucky sheds them upon seeing his son leave.
- Noble Bigot: Lucky often discriminates against humans.
- Perpetual Frowner: Lucky is never seen with a smile on his face.
- Strong Family Resemblance: Look at Marl's picture above. Did we even need confirmation that she was Happy's mom?
- Verbal Tic: "Kaah" for Lucky. He also says "Aye!", his son's catchphrase, at the end of the chapter/episode.
