Phantom Lord in General
Phantom Lord is the guild that was considered the single most powerful guild in Fiore before Fairy Tail came to prominence. An entire story arc is dedicated to a war that breaks out between the two guilds, which ends with Phantom Lord's defeat and ultimate disbandment for breaking the non-aggression rule between guilds.
- All for Nothing: The guild was founded specifically to rival Fairy Tail and one day bring them down. Their efforts at doing so wound up getting them disbanded by the Magic Council.
- Bad Samaritan: They take the same jobs as any other guild like Fairy Tail does, except Phantom members threaten their clients into raising their reward. This bit was removed from the anime.
- Jerkass: The guild is practically a breeding ground for the most despicable wizards you can imagine.
- A Mech by Any Other Name: Their guildhall can convert itself into a Humongous Mecha called the Phantom MkII, yet everyone refers to it as a "giant wizard".
- The Rival: They are Fairy Tail's first big, non-dark rival guild before the first Time Skip. As it turns out, this goes all the way back to the guilds' founding, as Jose's ancestor started it specifically to oppose Fairy Tail.
- Shout-Out: They're named after a Metallica song.
- Wave Motion Gun: The Compressed Magic Cannon: Jupiter.
Master Jose Porla
Voiced by: Takashi Matsuyama (JP), Ed Blaylock (EN)
The master of Phantom Lord, and one of the Ten Wizard Saints. He has multiple dark powers at his disposal, not the least of which is his Shade magic, which creates ghostly soldiers that fight on his behalf. As Makarov's self-fashioned rival, Jose is jealous of Fairy Tail's quick rise to fame, and jumps at the opportunity to wage a guild war against them.
- Arc Villain: The main antagonist of the Phantom Lord arc, where he wages war on Fairy Tail in order to kidnap Lucy and establish his guild as the greatest in Fiore.
- Art Evolution: When first introduced in the manga, his design looks rather silly and hardly intimidating, apart from a Slasher Smile here and there. However, within a few chapters, his design became more distinct and he ended up looking more badass as a result.
- Bad Powers, Bad People: His Shade spell creates countless phantom-like Mooks that sap the energy of anyone they touch. Not to mention just kicking up his aura makes people feel sick by being near him.
- Big Bad Wannabe: He sees the destruction of Fairy Tail and defeat of Makarov as his chance to prove who the best is. While he nearly succeeds in the former, he utterly fails in the latter when Makarov schools him. In comparison to later villains, he's hardly a footnote.
- Black Eyes of Evil: His eyes turn black when he fights Makarov in the anime, and good lord are they terrifying.
- Casting a Shadow: He specializes in casting dark magic and creating ghostly apparitions using his Shade magic.
- Classic Villain: He is the first major Evil Counterpart of Fairy Tail's master Makarov, evil with his dark clothes and powers, and is ultimately thwarted by his inability to grasp what makes Fairy Tail superior.
- Dark Is Evil: He is a specialist in darkness magic, and is a vengeful, greedy, and most of all dangerous adversary for Fairy Tail.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: He assumes Fairy Tail is protecting Lucy from him simply because she is rich, and not because they see her as one of their True Companions.
- Evil Counterpart: To Makarov. Both are Wizard Saints and the respective masters of their guild. Jose is a younger Smug Super who happily starts wars for petty reasons, while Makarov is a much older Humble Hero who only raises his sword to protect his "children".
- Evil Is Petty: He cripples a rival guild out of jealousy, and plans to ruin one of the wealthiest families in the country because he's afraid said rival guild is out to monopolize their fortune.
- Evil Sorcerer: He's got the standard look of an evil wizard with his hat and cloak, and he exhibits no shortage of pride in his rank as one of the Ten Wizard Saints.
- Fatal Flaw: He is done in by his own inability to accept that there is Always Someone Better than him. It drives him to actively undermine Fairy Tail in combat when he starts feeling threatened, and he chooses to gloat over his own superiority when Makarov offers him the chance to surrender peacefully. In the end, this costs him his victory, his rank, and his entire guild.
- Faux Affably Evil: He wears a thin facade of politeness that crumbles away at the smallest nudge.
- Green-Eyed Monster: Though he denies it has anything to do with his motivations, he's clearly jealous of Fairy Tail's rise to fame and wants to stamp his rivals out once and for all.
- Guyliner: Wears purple lipstick.
- The Minion Master: His Shade Soldiers are magically created phantoms that are plentiful in number, show no signs of fatigue, sap the strength from anyone they touch, and are perfectly expendable.
- No Kill Like Overkill: He tries to obliterate Fairy Tail's guildhall with the magic cannon Jupiter, and later all of Magnolia with Abyss Break, just because he wants them to hand over a girl and use money she doesn't have.
- Noodle Incident: Jose's personal grudge with Makarov began with an event that somehow involved alcohol.
- Obviously Evil: A wizard's hat and bat wings are just the start.
- The Rival: He sees himself as one to Makarov and Fairy Tail as a whole, but goes to extremes that paint him as a fully blown villain.
- Smug Super: Wizard Saints only get registered if the Magic Council recognizes their magical talent. Being a Wizard Saint himself, he has every reason to think of himself as one of the best wizards in the kingdom.
- We Have Reserves: Downplayed in the case of his Shade Soldiers. Since they're magic constructs with no minds of their own, they can easily be caught in the crossfire with any major attack thrown at Fairy Tail with zero repercussions.
- You Could Have Used Your Powers for Good: Makarov bemoans how someone as young and powerful as Jose could have become a good role model for the younger generation, rather than the bad one he chose to be.
Element 4Phantom Lord's elite team of elemental magic specialists with power equal to that of Fairy Tail's S-Class wizards.
Element 4 in General
- Four-Element Ensemble: Each member uses magic based on one of the four classical Western elements: Air (Aria), Water (Juvia), Earth (Sol), and Fire (Totomaru).
- Four Is Death: They are the strongest team in their guild, and their magic is required to cast the Unholy Nuke Abyss Break.
- High-Heel–Face Turn: Juvia is the only female of the group, and the only one to have a full Heel–Face Turn.
- Meaningful Name: These wizards use elemental magic. And there are four of them.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad: They serve as this for the Phantom Lord arc.
- Theme Naming: Each of the Element 4 is named after their respective elements, except for Totomaru: "Aria" is Italian for air; "Juvia" is derived from lluvia, the Spanish word for rain; and "Sol" is French for soil.
"Great Sky" Aria
Voiced by: Katsui Taira (JP), Chris Rager (EN)
The blindfolded leader of the Element 4 who constantly cries over everything. He uses a special form of air magic called Kukinote that allows him to drain his opponents' magic and strength.
- Bald of Evil: He has a big dome head, and has no trouble stealing the lives of others.
- Blow You Away: Aria's magic isn't so much "wind" as it is "air".
- Catch-Phrase: "It's so sad!"
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Aria at his strongest is one-shotted by Erza, who was even injured at the time. Likewise, when he tries to do another sneak attack on Marakov at the end of the arc, Marakov knocks him out with a stretched punch without even looking at him.
- Dirty Coward: The only reason he manages to successfully take out Makarov is because his attention was focused on Jose's threat to kill Lucy. In a straight up fight, he doesn't even stand a chance.
- Inelegant Blubbering: He's almost always seen crying, and it's never pretty.
- "Instant Death" Radius: Those trapped in his ultimate Kuki spell, Zero, are said to be drained of their lives.
- It Only Works Once: Marakov doesn't fall for the same sneak attack twice.
- Magical Eye: Both of his eyes have an otherworldly glow in the manga, while in the anime, his pupils are split in an X shape. Either way, it's a sign that he's about to go all out when they open.
- Mana Drain: One of his ultimate attacks is called Drain, a bane for any opposing wizard who can't avoid it in time.
- Mighty Glacier: Most of his fights consist of him dishing out attacks without moving an inch.
"Great Sea" Juvia Lockser
"Great Earth" Sol
Voiced by: Eiji Sekiguchi (JP), Barry Yandell (EN)
A creepy man with a French accent, also known as "Sol of the Great Earth." He is the Element 4's Earth Magic specialist who can merge his body with the ground.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Sol is at the wrong end of it when Elfman finally transforms completely.
- Dishing Out Dirt: He is "Of the the Great Earth".
- Everything Sounds Sexier in French: Averted; he is much closer to terrifying than sexual.
- Faux Affably Evil: Very jolly and polite even when engaging in Mind Rape or beating people half to death.
- Gratuitous French: His attacks all have French names, and he drops French phrases in his sentences:
- "Sable Danse" (Sand Dance)
- "Plâtre Sonate" (Plaster Sonata)
- "Roche Concerto" (Rock Concerto)
- "Merci la Vie" (Thank Life)
- High-Class Glass: A monocle over his right eye.
- Lean and Mean: The skinniest of the Element Four, but also physically the strongest.
- Muscles Are Meaningless: Despite his skinny build, he's easily able to overpower Elfman's human form. Lampshaded by Elfman himself for underestimating his strength.
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: He Mind Rapes Elfman by reminding him of his dead little sister while his older sister is being crushed in front of him, which restores Elfman's ability to do a Full Body Take-Over.
- Oh, Crap!: When his attempt to Mind Rape Elfman instead spurs him on.
- Shapeshifter Guilt Trip: Threw Elfman off his game by forming golems that look like Lisanna.
- Taken for Granite: Sol's most powerful spell in the anime, "Merci la Vie", transforms his opponent into rock (while additionally forcing said opponent to relive the worst moments of their life for all eternity). It doesn't work with Elfman though.
- Training from Hell: Parodied in the anime; after witnessing Elfman's transformation in a huge monster, he affirms that all that psychological torture he put on him was done in order to unlock his Take-Over, just so he could weasel his way out of a beating. It doesn't work.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is green.
"Great Fire" Totomaru
Voiced by: Daisuke Endou (JP), Justin Cook (EN)
Element 4's Fire Magic specialist, also known as "Totomaru of the Great Fire". He uses a a form of Fire Magic called Rainbow Fire that lets him conjure multi-colored flames that have different properties based on their color.
- Heel–Face Turn: Considering he's a teacher now, it's likely he changed his ways after the war with Fairy Tail. Romeo figures he's teaching him just to annoy Natsu and the other Fairy Tail members.
- Katanas Are Just Better: Totomaru has one, just in case his usual method isn't enough. In the anime, Natsu uses it to shatter the lacrima to the Jupiter cannon he guards.
- Multicolored Hair: Black and white.
- Oh, Crap!: When he finds he can't control Natsu's fire at the height of their battle and prevent him from fighting it at the Jupiter's cannon lacrima.
- Playing with Fire: Totomaru shows just how varied fire magic can be, as he claims he has absolute mastery over it. He can even control the fire created by other people, to a certain degree anyway.
- Technicolor Fire: Totomaru's magic allows him to wield flames with a variety of effects, each one distinguishable by its color.
Cait ShelterA guild whose members claim to be descended from the Nirvit, an ancient tribe that developed the ancient magic Nirvana. In reality, most of the guild is actually just an illusion created by its master for the sole purpose of caring for Wendy.
Cait Shelter in General
Voiced by: Kazuya Tatekabe (JP), Bill Flynn (EN)
The master of Cait Shelter. He is actually the ghost of the last remaining member of the Nirvit tribe, refusing to rest until Nirvana is destroyed.
- Cool Old Guy: He creates an entire guild of people just to give a little girl a home.
- Dead All Along: Like the rest of the Nirvit Tribe, he's been dead for years
- Running Gag: He has a habit of drinking something and then talking without swallowing first.
- Master of Illusion: Probably the strongest illusionist in the series, since he is able to maintain the illusion of a guild for a full seven years. Jura even comments on this.
Twilight OgreA guild that establishes itself as the strongest in Magnolia over the Time Skip. Fairy Tail becomes indebted to the guild after losing their strongest wizards on Sirius Island.
Twilight Ogre in General
- Butt-Monkey: To the point of being the only reason for their existence!
- Bad Samaritan: They give money to Fairy Tail when it falls into debt, then regularly (often violently) harass them whenever the time comes to pay them back.
- Jerkass: They treat the remnants of Fairy Tail badly.
- Laser-Guided Karma: Makarov, Erza, and Mirajane pay them back seven years worth of the same abuse they put Fairy Tail through.
Voiced by: Yoshimitsu Shimoyama (JP), Doug Goodrich (EN)
The master of Twilight Ogre.
- Gonk: He's quite unpleasant to look at, especially his bizarrely shaped chin.
- Large and in Charge: He throws his huge size around to show others who's boss. Unfortunately for him, Makarov easily turns the tables on him.
- Loan Shark: He looks and acts like a mob boss, and gives Fairy Tail a loan they can't possibly expect to pay back.
- Oh, Crap!: When he realizes he's pissed off three Fairy Tail wizards you'd hate to have as your enemy.
- Sinister Shades: They're about as shady as his character.
Voiced by: Unknown (JP), Shawn Winchell (EN)
Fairy Tail's debt collector who comes every month with his gang to trash the place when they please, at least until Fairy Tail's strongest members return.
- Carry a Big Stick: A giant club that he threatens Romeo with.
- Cheshire Cat Grin: As seen in the picture.
- The Worf Effect: He's apparently strong enough to intimidate Fairy Tail into submission. Then Natsu shows up and one-shots him with a single hit. Not only that, it later turns out the "weaker" Fairy Tail members were merely holding themselves back to avoid needless violence, and could have clobbered him and his gang any time they wanted.
- He and his men show up again for a single scene in the Grand Magic Games arc where they try to take on Natsu, Gray, and Elfman for revenge. Again, it doesn't end well for Ogre.
Raven TailA dark guild formed by Makarov's son Ivan specifically to rival Fairy Tail, and works independently from the Balam Alliance. After the Time Skip, they emerge from the shadows as an official guild to participate in the Grand Magic Games.
Raven Tail in General
- Animal Motifs: Each member can be attributed to a certain animal: Ivan's is a raven (he named his guild after this, and is seen with a pet raven at one point in the manga); Obra's is a penguin (he resembles one); Flare's is a wolf (her hair can take the shape of a wolf); Kurohebi's is a snake (his name and appearance); and Nullpudding's is a pufferfish (he can inflate and cover his body with spikes).
- Deliberately Bad Example: Raven Tail is a downright despicable bunch who loves to Kick the Dog for its own sake, making Saber Tooth look like a case of Good Is Not Nice in comparison. This doesn't last when Saber Tooth's master proves to be just as bad.
- Evil Counterpart: To Fairy Tail; they literally call themselves an "anti-Fairy Tail guild", and their guild's emblem is a cross between Fairy Tail's mark and the letter R.
- For the Evulz: Whenever they're not trying to further Ivan's Evil Plan, they still like to Kick the Dog for the sake of it.
- Informed Ability: According to Ivan, the guild was specifically designed to defeat Fairy Tail by exploiting their weaknesses. Judging by how Laxus single-handedly defeats them all, one wouldn't think so.
- Jerkass: They're a completely despicable bunch where Kicking the Dog and dicking Fairy Tail around are the norm.
- Laser-Guided Karma: After spending the Grand Magic Games cheating their way to the top and messing up Fairy Tail's performance in the tournament For the Evulz, it all comes back to bite them on the third day when Laxus single-handedly thrashes the entire guild with a vengeance, disqualifying Raven Tail from the rest of the tournament.
- Obviously Evil: They're decked out in dark clothes and have a malevolent vibe to them that Mavis can clearly sense. However, simply registering themselves as an official guild is all it takes for them to get into the Grand Magic Games without a fuss.
- Reverse Mole: Gajeel pretends to be a Raven Tail member to spy on them for Makarov.
- Smug Smiler: A staple character trait for every member is a condescending smile that riles up Fairy Tail every time they see it.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Uniquely, the guild's name is written out as "Raven's Tail" in the anime and Animax dub.
- Trying to Catch Me Fighting Dirty: They commonly use underhanded tactics to win events and matches in the Grand Magic Games. It bites them in the ass on third day of the Grand Magic Games when they all try to gang up on Laxus under the veil of Ivan's illusions, a clear breach of the tournament rules, only for Laxus to expose their foul play and get them barred from the tournament. That, and Yajima was suspicious of them from day one.
- Villainy-Free Villain: Despite being massive Jerkasses who personally hurt and humiliate Fairy Tail during the Grand Magic Games, Raven Tail doesn't necessarily do anything illegal. Flare even states after they're disbarred from the games that the worst they ever did was break the tournament's rules, and are able to walk free by day's end.
Ivan Dreyar / Alexei
Master Ivan Dreyar, a.k.a. Alexei
Voiced by: Masaharu Satou (JP), Bruce Carey (EN)
Makarov son and Laxus's father, and the master of Raven Tail. He is obsessed with finding Fairy Tail's greatest secret and doesn't care who he has to hurt in order to get it. This attitude wound up getting him kicked out of Fairy Tail by Makarov, causing no small amount of resentment between them. He has the power to control shikigami. During the Grand Magic Games, Ivan competes under an alias called Alexei, wearing a full suit of armor to hide his identity.
- Abusive Dad: He put a Dragon Slayer lacrima in Laxus as a child because he was so feeble and weak, then planned to remove the lacrima from his body and sell it when it became more powerful, which is implied to have adverse effects on Laxus.
- Antagonistic Offspring: He actively defied Makarov for hiding Lumen Histoire from him.
- Bad Boss: He violently beats Flare offstage for her poor performance against Lucy due to the fact she needed outside help to win.
- Casting a Shadow: The anime gives him a few darkness-based spells that he uses on Laxus.
- Dark Is Evil: He's the vilest and greediest of the Dreyar family, and stands out among them with his darker colored hair, skin, and outfit.
- Evil Sounds Raspy: He speaks with a raspy, withered voice. It becomes even raspier when disguised as Alexei.
- Family Theme Naming: Similar to his dad and grandfather, "Ivan" and his alter ego "Alexei" both originate as Russian names.
- Greed: His motivation behind finding Lumen Histoire, or Fairy Heart, a source of infinite magic power that could uproot the very foundations of the magic world. When he found out Fairy Tail was harboring this kind of power in secret, he couldn't help but obtain it for himself.
- Gold-Colored Superiority: He wears a solid gold suit of armor in the Grand Magic Games, and is touted as his team's leader.
- Hypocrite: Doesn't have any problems setting all of his guild's elites on Laxus, his own son, to get the information he wants. After Laxus decimates said elites, he's begging Laxus not to hurt him because they're father and son.
- Lecherous Licking: Indulges in a bit of this during his debut appearance in the manga.
- Malevolent Masked Man: His Alexei persona wears an intimidating mask, which also serves to hide his identity.
- Master of Illusion: He uses a magical projection of himself to sit in the rafters while he participates in the Grand Magic Games as Alexei. He also uses illusion magic to trick the entire audience that he is curb-stomping Laxus just so he can have a moment to reveal his plans to his son.
- Missing Mom: His mother and (presumably) Makarov's wife is totally absent from the series.
- No Pronunciation Guide: His name is pronounced as "EE-wan" in Japanese, similar to the Russian pronunciation, and as "EYE-ven" in the English dub.
- Oedipus Complex: He is on both sides of this trope: he opposes his own father to get his hands on Lumen Histoire, while he's (eventually) opposed by his own son for harming his old guild in his selfish pursuits.
- Our Souls Are Different: From the little bit seen of his magic, he seems to be able to turn souls into shikigami, which are small pieces of paper. He can also use them to cast a Kamehame Hadoken-like beam.
- Paper Master: His magic gives him control over shikigami, which are mystical paper dolls originating from Japanese folklore.
- Pimped-Out Cape: He wears a big, flashy cloak draped over his huge shoulder plates in the Grand Magic Games.
- Pointy Ears: A clear indicator that this guy is bad news.
- Scary Impractical Armor: He wears armor designed for the sole purpose of hiding his own identity in the Grand Magic Games. It does not help him in the slightest against Laxus's attack.
- Shut Up, Kirk!: Laxus reasons that Ivan spent the entire Time Skip waiting to move against Fairy Tail is because deep down, he still cares about Makarov. Ivan doesn't take kindly to this claim at all, saying he was simply waiting for someone who knew about Lumen Histoire to return.
- Small Role, Big Impact: He is presumed to have unwittingly spread the information of its infinite magic power to Zeref through Obra, thus making him the catalyst of the Alvarez Empire arc. By extension, this has a horrible implication that he is the reason why his own father almost died.
- Smug Smiler: He is almost never seen without a smug grin plastered on his face, at least before his Villainous Breakdown.
- Spell My Name with an "S": The original English translation by Del Rey spelled his name as "Iwan", a direct transliteration of his Japanese name.
- Trying to Catch Me Fighting Dirty: As he's the master of Raven Tail, he's also the most triumphant example of this within the group. Not only does he enter the Grand Magic Games under an alias, blatantly breaking the rule forbidding guild masters to compete, but he also uses illusions to make the outcome of the fight appear to be whatever he wants it to be, and has all of his guild's elite gang up on Laxus.
- Villainous Breakdown: He starts to lose that haughty air of his once he learns from Laxus that Makarov has been studying his guild for quite some time thanks to Gajeel's espionage. Things keep going downhill as Laxus dominates his guild's elites right in front of him that by the time Laxus faces him, Ivan's begging his son not to beat him up because they're family.
- Villainous Demotivator: He violently beats Flare for having to be bailed out by Obra in her match against Lucy, and threatens to do so again when she tries to tease Lucy again.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Despite his determination to claim Lumen Histoire for himself, he never appears again after losing to Laxus in the Grand Magic Games.
Voiced by: Yoshimitsu Shimoyama (JP), Tyler Walker (EN)
A strange-looking mage who is capable of draining all of the magical energy from his opponent, thus leaving them too exhausted to use any magic themselves. He's apparently lazy and doesn't actually fight unless forced to do so, and is usually seen with a small imp-like creature nearby. He's actually apparently a puppet; the real Obra is, in fact, the imp. Oh, and he has a connection to Zeref.
- Anti-Magic: Specifically, it seems to work by istantly emptying the magical energy of the target, leaving it exhausted.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: His skin is bluish-gray.
- Black Eyes of Evil: His eyes are pitch black, like those of a bird.
- The Dog Was the Mastermind: He's just a puppet animated by an imp, who is apparently the real Obra.
- Gonk: He has blue skin, a huge nose, and an odd mouth. Justified in that it is just a puppet.
- The Imp: Obra's true form is an imp.
- Let's Get Dangerous!: He's said by his teammates to only fight well when he's forced to be. And until that happens, aside from his Anti-Magic powers, he's pretty weak.
- Lazy Bum: Obra doesn't like using his power unless forced to, though that could be justified in that he doesn't want to blow his cover.
- Marionette Master: Implied since Obra controls that puppet body from the outside.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Actually hard to tell because of his mantle, but he seems to have extra arms.
- Nice Hat: A rather impressive top hat.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: The last time his imp is seen after swearing revenge on Fairy Tail? He's hanging around Zeref.
- Parrot Pet Position: Obra sits like this on his own puppet.
- Right-Hand Attack Dog: Is shown using a small, black imp to use his magic, which is apparently his true self.
- Seeing Through Another's Eyes: Zeref was using the imp in this way during the Grand Magic Games.
- Slasher Smile: The imp. Constantly.
- The Stoic: Nothing can seemingly faze him. Makes sense since he's a puppet.
- Trying to Catch Me Fighting Dirty: Even before it was his turn to fight in the Grand Magic Games—attacking Wendy before the competition even started, and draining Lucy's magic just before she can use Urano Metria on Flare.
- The Voiceless: Subverted. The imp is the real Obra, and he can certainly talk.
- We Will Meet Again: The imp swears revenge on Fairy Tail, right before it runs away after his puppet is defeated.
- The Worf Effect: An actually justified and invoked example. Obra decides to go for an awful performance rather than showing his powers, since one of the day's commentators is a member of the Magic Council. Later played straight when Laxus takes him out in one strike before he can use his powers on him, although it could be justified in that Raven Tail was losing anyway and his job was done.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Puppet Obra has blue hair.
Voiced by: Shizuka Ito (JP), Alex Moore (EN)
A deranged woman who can change the length and shape of her hair with her Hair Shower magic. She was raised by the giants at the Village of the Sun until the ran away from home and joined Raven Tail. She develops an obsessive fixation with Lucy and follows her wherever she goes, though her reasons are never quite clear.
- Absolute Cleavage: It helps that her guild tattoo is on her right breast.
- Ax-Crazy: She is very violent and very insane during the Grand Magic Games. It's toned down during the Sun Village arc.
- Back for the Finale: Flare is seen as one of the many wizards across Ishgal who lend their magic to seal Acnologia away within Fairy Sphere.
- Berserk Button: Hates getting her hair damaged. She also doesn't take kindly to those who would harm her hometown, the Village of the Sun.
- Big Damn Heroes: She saves Lucy and Wendy from being sniped during their fight against Sylph Labyrinth in the Sun Village arc, evening out the numbers for the fight.
- In the anime adaptation of the Grand Magic Games arc, she rescues Lucy from an ambush during the final battle before slinking back into the shadows. Since the Ryuzetsu Land chapter never made it into the TV anime, instead getting a separate OVA adaptation, this is what convinces Lucy that Flare can be trusted.
- Braids of Action: Incidentally, she has to undo her braids in order to use her magic.
- Creepy Good: Even after her Heel–Face Turn, she still keeps a limp gait and an empty stare, and her obsession with Lucy nearly reaches Stalker Without a Crush levels.
- Curtains Match the Window: Has red eyes to go with her red hair.
- Creepy Shadowed Undereyes: Her sunken eyes help her stand out among most other female characters.
- Cry Cute: Happens often in the Sun Village arc, showing her to be much more sympathetic than she originally let on.
- Dark Action Girl: She gives Lucy a tough one-on-one fight in the Grand Magic Games before she resorts to cheating.
- Dirty Coward: Not only does she resort to threatening a child to win a fight, but she gloats over her "victory" after being saved her from an attack that otherwise would have beaten her. It's later subverted when she reveals that she deeply regretted her actions and apologizes.
- Evil Is Hammy: She seems to enjoy herself a bit too much while torturing Lucy, though not so much when they later fight side by side.
- Evil Redhead: She's more mellow and creepy than most examples, but she's still an unpleasant person who likes to make Lucy suffer. She eventually redeems herself, however.
- Flaming Hair: Her hair is able to burn right through Lucy's boots, and threatens to replace Lucy's Fairy Tail emblem with the mark of Raven like a branding iron. It's even more evident in the anime, where her hair actually lights on fire.
- Freudian Excuse: She was adopted and raised by giants at Sun Village, but felt like a Fish out of Water due to being so much smaller than everyone and ran away, only to go mad with fear upon meeting people the same size as her. She later fell in with the bad crowd known as Raven Tail, more or less going along with their Jerkass actions just because everyone else was doing it.
- The Gadfly: In the Ryuzetsu Land OVA adaptation, she tells Lucy she wants payback for their earlier battle, leading Lucy to have some dirty thoughts; Flare then says she's just kidding, and is actually there to apologize. This carries over into the manga's Sun Village arc, where she jokingly says she was stalking Lucy in secret ever since their last meeting.
- Godiva Hair: Her hair is conveniently long enough to cover up all her naughty bits when she makes a surprise appearance in Fairy Tail's bathhouse.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has an X-shaped scar on her shoulder.
- Heel Realization: As a member of Raven Tail with no knowledge of the world, she thinks it's normal to hate and harass Fairy Tail for the sake of it. After Laxus punishes her and the others for the torture they put his guild through, however, Flare recognizes the bad decision she made and cleans up her act.
- High-Heel–Face Turn: Being the only known female in Raven Tail, she is also the only one to switch sides after her guild disbands.
- Interspecies Adoption: She's a human who was raised by giants.
- It's Personal: She helps Lucy and Wendy fight Sylph Labyrinth and find the Eternal Flame at Sun Village because that's where she was raised.
- Kick the Dog: During her match with Lucy in the Grand Magic Games, she blackmails Lucy out of fighting back by threatening to harm Asuka, and then tries to rebrand her Fairy Tail emblem with Raven Tail's. Then, after Obra drains Lucy of her magic while she has Flare cornered, Flare gloats over her "victory" as Lucy cries over her humiliating loss.
- Laughing Mad: She's a cackling maniac while she mercilessly wails on Lucy. She later proves herself to be a great deal more reserved once Raven Tail dissolves, though she still clearly has a few screws loose.
- Limp and Livid: Her default stance, which compliments her perpetually demented personality.
- Meaningful Name: Both "flare" and "corona" are words relating to the sun. It makes sense, then, when you consider she was raised in the Village of the Sun.
- Ms. Fanservice: She has a fairly revealing front and even a Public Bathhouse Scene, though the general idea is spoiled by that creepy gaze of hers.
- The Nicknamer: She seems to have a habit of addressing others outside her guild by the color of their hair; so far she has called Lucy "Blondie", Wendy "Blue-hair", and Natsu "Cherry-hair". For good measure, she calls herself "Redhead".
- Oh, Crap!: When Lucy is about to use Urano Metoria on her, very similar to the one she has later when Alexei threatens to beat her for almost losing.
- Peer Pressure Makes You Evil: She Used to Be a Sweet Kid, but after joining a guild where hating Fairy Tail and being a Jerkass are the norm, she has no choice to follow along or suffer the consequences.
- Pet the Dog: After Raven Tail gets beaten by Laxus and disbarred from the Grand Magic Games, Flare personally apologizes to Lucy for her actions during their battle.
- Prehensile Hair: Flare's Hair Shower magic allows her to extend her hair to ridiculous lengths and block most forms of magic. She can additionally change its shape and set it ablaze.
- Psycho Lesbian: She seems to have a creepy fixation on Lucy after their fight. She also uses her hair to "clean every nook and cranny" of Cana's body.
- Psychopathic Womanchild: Speaks with a childish singsong voice and relishes in violence, also having no idea that any of her bad behavior is wrong initially because everyone else around her is doing it. Once she's punished for said behavior, she changes it.
- Psychotic Smirk: Her default expression throughout the Grand Magic Games, demonstrating that there's something rather "off" about her. She starts using other kinds of smiles when she shows up at Sun Village.
- Rapunzel Hair: She can alter the length of her hair to grow very long, as she is able to reach Asuka among the crowd while standing in the middle of the arena.
- Shaping Your Attacks: Her Wolf Fang attack turns her hair into a wolf.
- Stalker Without a Crush: Subverted. She claims she's just joking when she says she's been following Lucy since the Grand Magic Games, but she says it with the most unsettling look in her eye.
- Tears of Joy: She breaks into tears when the giants at her village happily welcome her back home after she'd run away.
- Underboobs: Her dress barely covers her breasts.
- When She Smiles: She replaces her usual Psychotic Smirk with a pretty smile after she helps beat Sylph Labyrinth alongside Lucy and Wendy, and later when she's welcomed home by the giants, which is lampshaded by Lucy.
- Would Hurt a Child: She threatens to harm young Asuka to keep Lucy from fighting back in their match. However, it's later implied that her guild put her up to it.

- For the Evulz: By his own admission, he loves to torment others for no reason other than to be a Jerkass.
- Hellish Pupils: He has slitted pupils.
- Kick the Dog: Almost literally to Toby, a man dressed like a dog. After listening to his "sad tale" about his missing sock, Kurohebi helps him find it (it was hanging around his neck the whole time) and appears to move forward to help his beaten opponent up...and then he grabs the sock and tears it up right in front of him, sickening everyone in the stadium.

Quattro CerberusOne of the legal guilds in Fiore that participates in the Grand Magic Games. It's an eccentric guild distinguished by a peculiar catchphrase: "Wild Four!"
Quattro Cerberus in General
- Animal Motifs: Their guild's theme is distinctly dog-like.
- Butt-Monkey: They're so lame, Mashima doesn't even bother to give character profiles to any of them besides Bacchus, instead just lumping them into one page and listing their powers and traits as "various". Not to mention their pathetic performance record in the Grand Magic Games: they only win one event; obtain low scores in the rest; are usually the first ones to be defeated in each event; get curb-stomped just to show how strong the heroes' opponents are; and ultimately end up taking last place in the tournament.
- Catch-Phrase: "Wild Four!", which is changed in the English dub to, "Your soul will always be wild!"
- The Chew Toy: Their only purpose in the story is to serve as Canon Fodder in a World of Badass.
- Collared by Fashion: Most members wear spiked dog collars.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Their name can be translated as "Four-Headed Guard Hound", but they're more neutral characters.
- Defeat Means Friendship: In the anime, Bacchus and Rocker have a friendly drinking contest with Fairy Tail after losing to Elfman and being renamed "Quattro Puppy".
- Dumb Muscle: All of the members participating in the Grand Magic Games have low stats in intellect with the exception of the guild master Goldmine, and possibly Bacchus.
- Embarrassing Nickname: Elfman and Bacchus make a bet during the Grand Magic Games that if Elfman wins, then Quattro Cerberus will be renamed "Quattro Puppy" for the rest of the tournament. And win Elfman does.
- Hot-Blooded: They are nothing if not passionate about fighting.
- Large Ham: Their catchphrase somewhat resembles a dog howling.
- Rated M for Manly: They're an all-male guild. This leads to some double standard comedy when Rocker winds up being the only guy present in the otherwise all-female Naval Battle contest.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Del Rey and Funimation use the Portuguese spelling "Quatro", while Kodansha uses the Italian "Quattro". Meanwhile, it's written in the anime as "Kerberos", which is closer to the Greek and Japanese spelling.
- Testosterone Poisoning: The guild seems to be made up entirely of muscular, headstrong men. When inviting Yukino to the guild, they comment that she'd be a "lone flower".
- The Worf Effect: Their general role in the Grand Magic Games.

The master of Quattro Cerberus and an old friend of Makarov's.
- Adaptation Origin Connection: A minor, non-villainous example. He and Makarov are simply friends in the manga, but in the anime, he's a former Fairy Tail member who was on Makarov's old team along with Bob, Porlyusica, Yajima, and Rob.
- Badass Grandpa: Appears middle-aged, but doesn't even bat an eye when faced with Lullaby.
- Collared by Fashion: A spiked dog collar.
- Cool Shades: Never seen without them.
- Mr. Exposition: He's one of the first characters to explain who Zeref is and what kind of impact he left on the world.

"Drunken Hawk" Bacchus Glowe
Voiced by: Kenjiro Tsuda (JP), Chris Hury (EN)
The strongest wizard in Quattro Cerberus, renowned for inventing his own unique martial art known as Drunk Pigua Quan. By combining this with magic that focuses power in his palms, as well as his habit of drinking himself silly, he becomes a force to be reckoned with.
- The Ace: He is the strongest member of Quattro Cerberus, and the only one to actually win an event in the Grand Magic Games.
- The Alcoholic: Not only does he cement himself as the biggest drinker in the entire series by drinking Cananote under the table and still being able to walk it off, it's also key to making him the best fighter in his guild.
- Back from the Dead: He's one of the many casualties during the Eclipse dragon invasion who gets brought back to life thanks to Ultear's Last Ages spell.
- Bare-Fisted Monk: He's a wizard who specializes in hand-to-hand combat. Elfman uses this to his advantage with his Lizardman Takeover, damaging Bacchus' hands with his rough hide.
- Catch-Phrase: "My soul is shaking."
- Drunken Master: He invented his own fighting style based on real-life Drunken Boxing and Pigua Quan ("Chop-Hanging Fist"). As if he weren't dangerous enough when sober, he becomes nightmarishly fast and flexible when he's actually drunk.
- Facial Markings: He sports a row of spots beneath each eye.
- Graceful Loser: Upon losing to Elfman, he calls Elfman a "real man" and collapses with a huge grin on his face. He even takes his guild being renamed "Quattro Puppy" in stride.
- The Hedonist: He revels in a life of drinking good liquor and bedding hot women, usually more than once.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: His attacks, delivered with his bare hands, are devastating to Elfman. However, when the latter turns into his hard-skinned Lizardman form, Bacchus' unprotected hands moving at high speed get damaged by the scales.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's a rude pervert, as he takes Cana's top as a reward after beating her in a drinking contest, and proclaims that if he wins his battle against Elfman, he'll spend a night alone with both his sisters. However, he does seem to have some good traits, such as honestly congratulating Elfman for beating him during their fight, and also being good natured about honoring his bet to rename his guild if he lost.
- Kung-Fu Wizard: He's not just a wizard, but he's also a master martial artist who invented his own style of Drunken Boxing.
- Lightning Bruiser: He's so fast he can hit a target seven times in a row with what seems to be a single dash.
- Meaningful Name: Bacchus is named after the Roman god of wine and drunkenness.
- Power Palms: His magic concentrates magic power into his palms, making his strikes incredibly devastating.
- The Rival: He used to be one for Erza before the Time Skip, though their rivalry is never developed beyond a mere mention, and they never face each other in combat.
- Spirited Competitor: His reaction to Elfman pulling out a technique that could give him an honest challenge was to grin and compliment him. He seemed outright bored while he was winning the match without even trying.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: His outfit leaves most of his muscular torso exposed, instead covering his arms and shoulders with dark blue armor plates.
- The Worf Effect: He was brought into the Grand Magic Games just to give Quattro Cerberus a fighting chance, and he poses a legitimate challenge to Fairy Tail. This doesn't last past his battle with Elfman; after he loses, the worfing begins with him getting one-shot by Ichiya (the biggest Butt-Monkey in the series) on day four, and getting taken out early by Sting on day six.

A wizard who uses Tear Magic.
- Berserker Tears: Possibly inverted. It's because he cries that he's able to go berserk. Emphasis on "possibly"; he's defeated by Olga before he can demonstrate his magic.
- Meaningful Name: His name is War Cry and he uses Tear Magic.
- Swiss Army Tears: His "Tear Magic" apparently is something genuinely powerful, as even Sting commented on its power. However, he's annihilated by Olga before he can even finish his attack.

A large member of Quatro Cerberus who can spin like a spinning top.
- The Big Guy: The largest of his team, but also the slowest and the less bright.
- Everything's Better with Spinning: In the anime, he attacks with Spinning Magic, which turns him into a living spinning top, making him hard to stop or even approach due to the reach of his arms.
Mermaid HeelOne of the legal guilds in Fiore known as an all-female guild, with the entirety of its shown members being females.
Mermaid Heel in General
- Amazon Brigade: They're an all-female guild of wizards.
- Butt-Monkey: Not as much as Quartto Cerberus, but most of their members do badly in the games due to either flat out silly powers, or just ending up fighting stronger enemies save for Kagura. In the final day of the games, they take fourth in the overall tournament despite this.
- Ms. Fanservice: Most of the guild's older members are quite physically attractive. The finale even sees them becoming the exclusive models of Weekly Sorcerer.
- Shoo Out the Clowns: Once the battle royale in the Grand Magic Games gets serious, all of Mermaid Heel's team players with gimmicky super powers (sans Kagura) get removed quickly to increase the dramatic tension.
- The Worf Effect: Despite being established as a powerful guild, the final battle has them crushed in order to remind the audience that Saber Tooth is still a threat.

The ace of Mermaid Heel. She is a master of gravity magic, and an expert swordswoman with her katana, Ontô Fugutaiten.note While seemingly calm and collected at all times, she harbors a deep resentment towards Jellal for the death of her older brother, Simon, and forged her blade for the express purpose of killing him.
- Absurdly Sharp Blade: Her Fugutaiten, which is capable of dicing Ophiuchus, supposedly the strongest of the 13 Zodiac spirits, without leaving the scabbard. And that's not to make light of when it's unsheathed, where a single swing can slice an entire mountain at the base.
- The Ace: She is the single-most powerful wizard of Mermaid Heel, and has the best performance rating in the Grand Magic Games. Her swift defeat of Yukino establishes Mermaid Heel as a threat on par with Saber Tooth, and she nearly gets the better of Erza's resident ace with ease while she's holding back.
- Action Girl: She stands among three of Fiore's ultimate Action Girls in the series alongside Erza and Minerva.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: Her hair goes from black in the manga to purple in the anime, the exact opposite of Minerva.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She is tall, dark-haired, attractive, and acts as The Stoic most of the time.
- Ambiguously Gay: She is shown to be particularly close to Erza, despite viewing her as an older sister. Things only get muddled even further when Kagura kisses Erza in the Alvarez Empire arc just to "make up" for "kissing" Jellal (i.e., giving him CPR).
- Berserker Tears: Upon learning Simon threw his life away because of Erza, Kagura flies into a tearful rage against her. Her tears later turn into Tears of Remorse when she recognizes Erza as the one who saved her own life when they were children.
- Big Brother Worship: To her older brother Simon, who was everything she had when they were younger since they were dirt poor. She spent ten years looking for him after they were separated, and when she found out Jellal killed him, she went over the edge and swore her life to avenging her brother's death.
- Broken Bird: She enters the Grand Magic Games as a solemn and stoic woman fueled by hatred towards Jellal, who killed the only other person she loved the most.
- Can't Hold Her Liquor: She gets plastered pretty quickly during the post-games banquet.
- Cherry Tapping: She doesn't even need to unsheathe her sword to beat them.
- Clipped-Wing Angel: In her fight with Erza, she actually does more damage to her with her sword still sheathed than when she finally decides to unsheathe it. Even though the sword is hailed as being capable of causing a cataclysm if it's unsheathed, the only slash she is able to deliver only gives Erza a light scratch, even though it has enough power to cut a large part of the city.
- Dark and Troubled Past: She lived a happy life with her brother Simon until their hometown was razed by Zeref cultists looking for child slaves to build the Tower of Heaven. She escaped thanks to Erza, but Simon wasn't so lucky. She then spent the next ten years searching for her brother until she crossed paths with Millianna and learned he was killed by Jellal. Everything went downhill from there.
- Defeat by Modesty: During the Alvarez Empire arc, DiMaria subjects her to a humiliating defeat by completely ripping her kimono to shreds in front of two guilds worth of onlookers.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: She enters the Grand Magic Games as a moody young woman who is strict but caring towards the rest of her guild when not preoccupied with her thoughts of revenge against the man who ruined her life. By the closing ceremony, she begins coming out of her shell and joins the festivities with her friends, a sign that she has started coming to terms with her anger.
- Designated Bullet: She forged her Fugutaiten specifically to kill Jellal for killing her brother.
- Forgiven, but Not Forgotten: Although learning the truth of what happened to Simon from Erza and Ultear helped allay her murderous intent towards Jellal, she is still apprehensive around him while fighting Neinhart alongside him. In the end, however, she overcomes her hatred once and for all to save him from drowning.
- Forgotten Friend, New Foe: Erza was the one who saved her from being captured and enslaved when they were kids. Once they recognize each other during their match in the Grand Magic Games, Kagura loses her will to fight and surrenders.
- Game Face: Usually appears with closed, contemplative eyes. When her eyes are opened, she looks much more angry-looking in battle.
- The Good, the Bad, and the Evil: She plays the revenge and rage-driven "Bad" to Erza's noble "Good" and Minerva's callous "Evil" during their three-way match.
- Gravity Master: Her magic is Gravity Transformation, which lets her alter the gravity of any target, including herself, either by making them lighter or heavier, or changing the direction of its pull. It even bypasses the power of Libra, a celestial spirit.
- Hair Decorations: She wears a ribbon on her head, with the ends of the bow pointing straight up.
- Hime Cut: A traditional and elegant hairstyle befitting for a Lady of War with a katana.
- Hoist By Her Own Petard: After dropping her sword to help Erza during their match, and Minerva picks it up and non-fatally stabs her In the Back.
- I Gave My Word: She holds Yukino's life in her hands as a result of their pre-battle wager. Kagura only regards her win as Yukino's life literally belonging to her, and doesn't even try to enforce this until declaring (while drunk) that Yukino is "Mermaid Heel's property" when Saber Tooth tries to take her back after expelling her.
- I Owe You My Life: To Erza, who saved her from being caught by Zeref cultists as a child. Kagura doesn't recognize her at first, and even tries to kill her when she finds out she was responsible for Simon's death, but once she realizes who Erza is, she decides to spare her.
- Implausible Fencing Powers: She's able to cut through almost anything (even armor that managed to withstand a castle-leveling attack) without unsheathing her sword!
- It's Personal: She holds a deep-seated grudge against Jellal for killing her brother, and crafted her sword for the sole purpose of murdering him.
- Katanas Are Just Better: Her Fugutaiten is one of the strongest weapons seen in the series.
- Lady of War: She's one of the top swordswomen in the country, but never loses her air of calm or grace. That is, unless she's provoked into drawing her sword...
- One Degree of Separation: She, her brother Simon, and Erza all happened to live in Rosemary Village together when they were children.
- Onee-sama: Fulfills this role in her guild, especially towards Millianna who, incidentally, is actually older than her.
- Person of Mass Destruction: She becomes one when she breaks the seal to her sword, which can cleave straight through an entire city when unsheathed.
- The Power of Hate: Her sword Fugutaiten, meaning "Archenemy" and fittingly also known as the "Vengeance Sword", is forged with and fueled by someone the wielder hates so much, it's impossible to live in the same world as them.
- Proper Tights with a Skirt: She wears a skirt with tight pants underneath.
- Real Women Don't Wear Dresses: While at the Grand Magic Ball, she complains about having to wear such a Pimped-Out Dress and walking in high-heels.
- Revenge Before Reason: By her own admittance, she fell into darkness once she had found out about what happened to Simon from Millianna. When Erza accepts responsibility for his death, she flies into an Unstoppable Rage towards both her and Jellal. However, it's ultimately subverted when she not only realizes Erza saved her life, but also that Jellal was brainwashed.
- Sheath Strike: She keeps her sword in her sheath at almost all times using her Besheathed Longsword Technique. She only draws her sword when she decides to get serious which, according to her guild, never happens...until she comes face to face with Erza, that is.
- The Stoic: She gives off a very calm and relaxed demeanor with her expression being almost always blank, rarely showing emotion.
- Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: While she's quite happy to work with Erza during the Alvarez Empire arc, it's clear that she's barely holding back her contempt for Jellal when he joins the two ladies. Even when he saves her from Neinhart's attack and gets pinned under an anchor, she's initially set on leaving him to drown. However, her conscience compels her to save him and finally set her hatred of him aside once and for all.
- Unstoppable Rage: She loses all of her previous grace and serenity when she finds out Erza is the reason Simon is dead, turning into a Screaming Warrior.
- You Killed My Father: More specifically, Jellal killed her older brother Simon, and she wants him nothing less than dead for it.

- Ambiguously Gay: She is very fond of Kagura, and her splash page states the she "fell head over heels with Kagura" during her travels.

- Ambiguously Bi: Later, she would be shown interacting with males more and gained quite a few Ship Tease moments with them.
