    Kingdom of Fiore 

King Toma E. Fiore

Affiliation: Kingdom of Fiore

The King of Fiore.

Voiced by: Keiji Fujiwara (JP), Jim Foronda (EN)

  • The Faceless: Only the lower half of his face is shown until chapter 325.
  • The Good King: Judging by his concern for the common citizens.
  • King Incognito: Considering his disguise was Mato.
  • Miniature Senior Citizens
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He immediately orders the evacuation of all citizens in the capital after being told of the coming dragons and begs the magic guilds for help in case some of the dragons survive.
  • Verbal Tic: Him using the Grand Magic Games mascot Mato's Verbal Tic "Kapo"note  is what reveals him to be Mato during the Grand Magic Games.

Princess Hisui E. Fiore

Affiliation: Kingdom of Fiore
Magic: Celestial Spirit Magic

The Princess of Fiore. She is the mastermind behind the Eclipse Project, a plan meant to end Zeref's menace. Following the advice of a certain individual from the future, she has prepared a backup plan, Eclipse 2, to save Fiore from a more urgent and imminent threat.

Voiced by: Suzuko Mimori (JP)

Arcadios

Affiliation: Kingdom of Fiore, Holy Knights
Weapons/Equipment: Sword, White Lily Armor

Commander of the Fiore Kingdom's Holy Knights' Sakura Squadron. Very enigmatic and ambitious, he appears to be obsessed with Zeref and a project known as the Eclipse Plan that could potentially change the world.

Voiced by: Takaya Kuroda (JP), Major Attaway (EN)

  • Badass: His mad dash across the lava to save Lucy and Yukino, regardless of what protection he had, cements him as this. The anime also shows him fighting, and he handles himself pretty well.
    • Badass Beard: As seen by his character image, he has a pointy beard that covers his jaw.
    • Badass Cape: Always wears a long flowing cape to go with his armor.
    • Badass Normal: Does not appear to have any magic at his disposal.
    • Colonel Badass: He commands a unit of Fiore's army.
  • The Comically Serious: Usually very serious and shady, but even he falls into this when the king asks to see a match between Bacchus and Erza. Arcadios mishears him and instead pits Bacchus against Elfman, which leads to the hilarious sight of seeing Arcadios sweat-dropping when the king angrily berates him for getting the match-up wrong.
  • Cool Helmet: His White Lily Armor includes a magnificently plumed helmet that covers most of his head except for his mouth and chin.
  • Death Glare: Gives one to the royal guards when he goes to confront the princess about the identity of her mysterious advisor.
  • Determinator: Proves to be one when he wades through lava to save Lucy and Yukino.
  • Evil Laugh: Lets out one when he finds out Yukino is also a Celestial Spirit wizard. Of course, it's all part of the act
  • Gag Nose: It's long and a sort of rectangular, wooden shape.
  • Good All Along: His shady mannerisms and actions were all an act to take attention away from Hisui, the true mastermind of the Eclipse Project.
  • Heroic Build: Has quite the muscular body under all that armor, to the point that Horologium could barely hold him inside when he saved him from the lava.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Tries to make one to save Lucy and Yukino, but is saved by Horologium at the last second, though.
  • Honor Before Reason: Honestly believes that, as a knight, questioning the words of his princess and confronting her about the true identity of her mysterious advisor is a serious enough crime to warrant her killing him with his own sword. Hisui doesn't share his thoughts.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Once he discards his villainous act, he proves to be both selfless and honorable. This is even marked by him donning the White Lily Armor, which is pure white in color. His previous actions to ensure the success of the Eclipse Project tarnishes the shine a bit, but it's quickly forgiven and forgotten.
  • Lady and Knight: The White Knight to Princess Hisui's Bright Lady, though they don't appear to be romantically linked.
  • Messy Hair: It's even mimicked by the plume on his helm.
  • No One Could Survive That: His lava plunge. He does, as lampshaded by Carla and Uosuke. It's later revealed that an enchanted jade necklace he got from Princess Hisui provided a majority of protection for him, though he still gets some terrible burns for his trouble.
  • Oh, Crap: He and Hisui share an expression of dread when they realize there were two time travelers from the future.
  • Psychotic Smirk: During his villainous act, he's prone to smirking unnervingly at the prospect of Eclipse's success.
  • Red Herring: Is thought to be a villainous Zeref zealot, and the one behind the Eclipse Project. It turns out Hisui's the one behind it. His rants about preparing something for "Lord Zeref" are just part of his attempts to cover for Hisui.
  • Shoulders of Doom: In the anime, where his pauldrons are much bigger than in the manga.
  • Silent Scapegoat: He paints himself as the mastermind of the morally ambiguous Eclipse Project to cover for Hisui, the true mastermind.
  • The Stoic: While prone to Psychotic Smirks and Evil Laughs during his villainous act, when revealed to be Good All Along he assumes a serious and reserved attitude.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: The narration calls him as such right away during his introduction in the manga. Of course, turns out he was Good All Along.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: The Eclipse Project involves Time Travel for the sake of killing Zeref before he became immortal, which could potentially lead to even more devastating changes in the future. On top of that, he actually tries to kidnap Lucy to achieve this plan.

Darton

Affiliation: Kingdom of Fiore

The Minister of Defense of the Kingdom of Fiore. He is a reluctant participant in Arcadios' Eclipse Plan.

Voiced by: Yoshihisa Kawahara (JP), J.B. Edwards (EN)

Yukino Agria

See Fairy Tail Other Guilds.

Hungry Wolf Knights

A unit of wizards who support the Fiore Kingdom in secrecy by executing prisoners sent to the dungeon Hell Palace.
  • Ax-Crazy: With the except of the leader, they all seem to love executions.
  • Carnival of Killers: They're on the kingdom's side, but they seem to take a bit too much pleasure in their job.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: In the anime, after the dragons have been beaten, they are shown drinking with Quatro Cerebus and Fairy Tail.
  • Knight Templar: Anyone who's dumped into Hell Palace is sentenced to instant death, even if it's for something as small as stealing.
  • Mass "Oh, Crap!": Even though they fight separately from each other, they each realize they're in over their heads fighting Fairy Tail at the same time once their opponents decide to get serious.
  • Meaningful Name/Punny Name: So far all their names contain a hidden pun or are actually meaningful if you know what they mean.

Kama

Affiliation: Kingdom of Fiore, Hungry Wolf Knights
Weapons: Double Scythes

The leader of the Hungry Wolf Knights. Wields a pair of giant scythes.

Voiced by: Yuya Uchida (JP)

  • An Ax To Grind/Sinister Scythe: Two of them, and they're huge and vaguely shaped like wings.
  • Badass: The leader of his team, went near to killing Natsu.
    • Badass Armfold
    • Badass Cape: Complete with hood.
    • Badass Normal: Seems to be, so far. While his colleagues use flashy magics of various kinds his only weapons are two oversized scythes. This is slightly subverted in the anime, where his scythes do have magical powers, making him a Holder.
  • Cool Mask: Which gets broken as Natsu defeats him.
  • Dual Wielding: His main fighting style, with two scythes.
  • In the Hood
  • Meaningful Name: "Kama" is Japanese for "scythe", like the ones he carries. Not the most original; then again, it is a nickname given to him by Mirajane.
  • Never Gets Drunk: At the end of a night of drinking, he along with Cana and Bacchus, are the only ones standing.
  • Off with His Head!: Goes straight for decapitation at the start of his fight with Natsu.
  • One-Handed Zweihänder: Has no problem at all using his gargantuan polearms with one hand.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: His name was given to him by Mirajane in the Q&A trivia section of Volume 37, since Hiro Mashima never gave him a name in the manga proper. In the anime, Mira names him in the battle's aftermath.
  • The Stoic: The only time he ever shows some emotion is when Natsu's about to defeat him.
  • The Worf Effect: Before we can even learn his name, skills or powers, he gets defeated by Natsu in a jiff. We see more of his powers in the anime.

Knepper

Affiliation: Kingdom of Fiore, Hungry Wolf Knights
Magic: Acid Magic

An executioner who can use acid magic.

Voiced by: Kenta Matsumoto (JP)

Uosuke

Affiliation: Kingdom of Fiore, Hungry Wolf Knights
Magic: Terrain Effect Magic

A executioner dressed like a Japanese fisherman. His magic allows him to alter his environment at will.

Voiced by: Ayumu Murase (JP)

Cosmos

Affiliation: Kingdom of Fiore, Hungry Wolf Knights
Magic: Plant Magic

An executioner who can use summon magic to call upon all sorts of deadly plants.

Voiced by: Nao Tamura (JP)

  • Alliterative Name: All her attacks.
  • Ambiguously Lesbian: Intentional or not, in the anime adaptation she seems far too fond of Wendy, going as far as blushing when fighting her and touching her face as she's succumbing to her spores on the top of calling her beautiful all the time. Furthermore, she has shown disdain for flirty men like Loke, and after her defeat stated that she "didn't loved her anymore".
  • Darker and Edgier: In the manga, she's kinda cute and fanservicey, like nearly all the female characters. In the anime adaptation she looks kinda creepier and more serious by comparison.
  • Detached Sleeves
  • Does Not Like Men: Or at least flirty ones like Loke. (Note: Anime only).
  • Flower Motif: Also appears in a rose when she teleports.
  • Green Thumb: She can summon many plants with various powers, including vines, carnivorous plants, plants with explosive spores and flowers releasing a sleeping gas.
  • Man-Eating Plant: Can summon some, though they're not her best summons.
  • Meaningful Name: She's named after a flower.
  • Nice Hat
  • Showgirl Skirt: To specify, she wears a frilly green miniskirt and brigth pink showgirl skirt to boot.
  • Summon Magic: Her giant floral summonings.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: In a filler scene she admits that she likes sour fruits, exactly the opposite of Wendy.
  • Verbal Tic: Uses the word "beautiful" a lot.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Violet in the manga, pink in the anime adaptation.

Kamika

Affiliation: Kingdom of Fiore, Hungry Wolf Knights
Magic: Paper Magic

A executioner who can conjure flurries of paper that produce different effects based on their color.

Voiced by: Eriko Matsui (JP)

    Magic Council 
A major ruling body in the world of magic, the Council is what keeps all the wizard guilds in Fiore in check. For this reason, many of its members have an intense hatred of Fairy Tail for the damage that they cause. As the series progresses, the council is manipulated into helping Jellal complete the Tower of Heaven without them knowing, which proves costly for the council's reputation and leads the council to replace most of its members.
  • Berserk Button: Fairy Tail in general.
  • Back for the Dead: After a long period where only Doranbalt and Lahar were shown, the rest of the council makes their appearance and is killed off in its entirety in the course of half a chapter.
  • Kill Sat: Etherion
  • Kill Them All: Tartarus destroys the council and presumably kills EVERYONE, save Doranbalt.
  • Miniature Senior Citizens: A few of them.
  • Oh, Crap: Their reaction to the possibility of Zeref's revival.
  • The Omniscient Council of Vagueness: A little with the first Council, but definitely with the new one.
  • Out-Gambitted: Their plan to stop Zeref's resurrection fails horribly.
  • Theres No Kill Like Overkill: What happens when they have to use their secret weapons,like the Etherion Square and Face.Face especially has around,depending on the translation,either 20 or 2000 units spread through the continent.And even breaking them doesnt cancel its magic wiping effect.
  • Ungrateful Bastards: One of the offenses the new council puts against Fairy Tail is that they stopped Oración Seis without their consent. Never mind the fact that their forces didn't get there until after Fairy Tail destroyed Nirvana after it was activated.

Gran Doma

Affiliation: Magic Council
Magic: Unknown

The chairman of the reformed Magic Council. He runs the council with an iron fist and has absolutely no tolerance for Fairy Tail.

Voiced by: Hiroshi Shirokuma (JP), Bradley Campbell (EN)

Org

Affiliation: Magic Council
Magic: Thought Projection
Click here to see his pre-Time Skip appearance 

The second seat on the council, and a candidate for Chairman before being manipulated and shamed by Jellal kills his chances. He is the only member of the old council to remain on the new one. He had an intense dislike for Fairy Tail, but gradually softens his attitude towards them with every heroic act the guild takes.

Voiced by: Daisuke Endou (JP), Greg Dulcie (EN)

Lahar

Affiliation: Magic Council, Rune Knights
Magic: Jutsu Shiki

Head of the 4th Custody Enforcement Unit of the reformed Magic Council. Whenever wizards who prove to be a major threat to the peace are present, he is usually there to arrest them.

Voiced by: Hideyuki Hayami (JP), Christopher Bevins (EN)

  • Back for the Dead: As soon as he reappears, Jackal kills him.
  • Combat Commentator: On the third day of the Grand Magic Games.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: In Doranbolt's, after Jackal destroys the entire Magic Council building and kills almost everyone in it.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: The attack that killed him came with virtually no warning, and he wasn't the target. He was collateral damage in someone else's assassination.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Bishōnen doesn't even begin to cover it, though he's not as bad as Midnight.
  • Hero Antagonist: In the Nirvana arc, he arrests Jellal and Hoteye for their previous crimes after their Heel-Face Turn because they're still wanted criminals who need to be held responsible for their actions. Granted, Jellal and Hoteye don't object.
  • Killed Off for Real: By Jackal.
  • Oh, Crap: Gets this reaction in the Sirius Island arc when he finds out that not only Fairy Tail and Grimoire Heart are fighting each other on Sirius Island, but that Zeref is also involved.
    • Later, in the same arc when Doranbalt says Acnologia is coming.
  • Pet the Dog: Allows Jellal a chance to have one last conversation with his companions before taking him in for a life sentence.
    • Later shows visible sadness in the Sirius Island arc when he tells Doranbalt that Grand Doma is likely to order Etherion fired upon Fairy Tail, Grimoire Heart, and Zeref at the same time.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right: Inverted.
  • Shoot the Shaggy Dog: He achieves his dream of joining the Magic Council... and shortly after, dies as soon as the Tartarus Arc begins.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Lahar/Rahal
  • Stoic Spectacles

Doranbalt / Mest Gryder

Affiliation: Magic Council, Rune Knights
Magic: Memory Control, Teleportation
Click here for spoiler 

Head of a division of the Rune Knights, the Magic Council's military force. He infiltrates the guild to dig up dirt on Fairy Tail to disband the guild by using memory-altering magic to disguise himself as Mystogan's disciple.

Voiced by: Shuuhei Sakuguchi (JP), Alex Organ (EN)

  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!
  • Beard of Sorrow: Grows one over the Time Skip.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Does this twice. First, he delivers Cobra all the way from Era to Crocus to help the dragon slayers against the invading seven dragons. Second, he makes it just in time to save Wendy from Face's self-destruction blast.
  • Cloudcuckoo Lander: Later revealed to be an act. He's actually more like an Only Sane Man.
  • Deal with the Devil: He had no other choice but to free Oración Seis, in order to get the intel he needed on Tartarus. That said, he knew exactly what could go wrong with this, so he hired Crime Sorcière.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: In the anime, after watching Sirius Island get destroyed by Acnologia.
  • Everybody's Dead, Dave: The Sole Survivor of Jackal's attack on the Magic Council, as he later tells Cobra.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars
  • Fake Memories: He rewrites the memories of every member of Fairy Tail present during the S-Class trial.
  • Irony: His dream was to get Lahar to the top of the council someday. It all goes to hell when Tartarus attacks the council and massacres every member, including Lahar, leaving him as the sole survivor of the attack. And now it's more than likely he'll end up forming the new council and become its chairman.
  • Fridge Logic: The weakness of his memory magic. Thinking about circumstances surrounding him is what causes the other members of Fairy Tail to realize he's tricked them.
  • The Mole: He pretends to be a member of Fairy Tail to dig up dirt on it.
  • Mistaken for Pedophile: Erza gets convinced that he is a lolicon, as seen when he pops out during her Imagine Spot of Jellal leaving her for being turned into a little kid. The rest of Fairy Tail probably thinks this as well, after he chose Wendy from all the guild mages as a partner for the S-Class trials, despite there being no relation between them.
  • Morality Pet: He has a protective fondness towards Wendy, even after the Time Skip.
  • Only Sane Man: For both Fairy Tail, opposing their reckless charge on Hades and recommending a sensible retreat, and for the Magic Council by rejecting the possibility of obliterating Fairy Tail.
  • Pet the Dog: Saving Wendy from Azuma's attack. This goes a long way, considering he was approaching Memetic Molester status in regards to her. There's also his objections to the possibility of the Council firing Etherion on the island the S-Class Trial is held.
  • Red Herring: Readers are first led to believe that he is a newly-introduced member of Fairy Tail, and then given heavy hinting that he's a dark mage working for Grimoire Heart to revive Zeref. It turns out, though, that he's just a member of the Magic Council who now has plans to get dirt on Fairy Tail, expose that they're hiding Zeref, and get rid of Grimoire Heart at the same time.
  • Remember the New Guy: Enforced. His debut in the manga is in the same chapter, nay, the same page as his candidacy for the S-Class Trial is announced. Also Justified in that he used his magic to implant memories of himself into Fairy Tail's minds, since he was there to dig up dirt on Fairy Tail.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right: Wipes the council's memories of the Eclipse Gate, including Lahar, his best friend, in order to prevent the State from collapsing. Especially important since there's much bigger things to worry about soon in the future.
    • He may not bear the mark of Fairy Tail, but he has the heart.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": People have confused Doranbalt for Doranbolt.
  • Teleportation: One of his magics.
  • Tomato Surprise: He was The Mole for the Magic Council.
  • Unexpected Successor: After he is left the Sole Survivor of Jackal's attack, he's the one who has to lead what remains of the magic council's personnel. He understandably isn't the least bit happy about it since all of his colleagues, including his best friend, are dead.
  • X Marks the Hero

     Former Magic Council Members 

General

  • Killed Off for Real: Tartarus kills a few of them before Fairy Tail arrives to come help them.
  • Living MacGuffin: They're the keys to a bomb weapon that'll wipe out all of the magic on the continent. It was meant as a last resort for extremely desperate measures. Tartarus however wants to use it against humankind so the can easily wipe them out.
  • No Name Given: For a while, but later averted when the anime came out and finally named most of the others. Among them are Belno (the only female besides Ultear), Leiji (wearing a white hood with shades), and Hogg (a large old man with three eyes).
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Before the current council, while they always griped about Fairy Tail's antics, they know they mean no harm and were willing to overlook most of what they did.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Jellal tricks them into firing the Etherion over the Tower of Heaven to complete his scheme to which afterward Ultear destroys their building. This incident leads to their disbandment.

Yajima

Affiliation: Fairy Tail (former), Magic Council (former)
Magic: Flattening Magic, Thought Projection

The former sixth seat on the Magic Council. He is an old friend of Makarov's, and thus one of the few who stick up for Fairy Tail on the council. He later retires from the council and opens a restaurant after the other members are tricked by Jellal into helping him complete the Tower of Heaven.

Voiced by: Masafumi Kimura (JP), Steve Powell (EN)

Michello

Crawford Theme

Affiliation: Magic Council (former), Tartarus
Magic: Super Archive, Thought Projection

Siegrain

Affiliation: Magic Council, Tower of Heaven
Magic: Thought Projection

One of the few members of the Magic Council who puts up with Fairy Tail's destructive antics. He is registered as one of the Ten Wizard Saints. "Siegrain" is actually an alias used by Jellal Fernandez to infiltrate and manipulate the council into helping him complete the Tower of Heaven.

Voiced by: Daisuke Namikawa (JP), Robert McCollum (EN)

  • Chick Magnet: In the anime, he's listed in Sorceror Weekly Magazine among the mages most desirable as a boyfriend.
  • Evil Twin: Jellal is his, or at least that's what he says.
  • Expy: Of Sieg Hart, confirmed by Word of God to have been intentional Fanservice. Given his white robe, it's far more blatant than it is with Jellal.
  • Man in White
  • The Mole: For Jellal. Mostly because, well, he is Jellal.
  • Only One Name: Everyone, including Erza, just calls him Siegrain and he doesn't appear to share his "brother's" surname of Fernandez. It might have been a case of intentional Foreshadowing.
  • The Reveal: He and his "brother" Jellal are one and the same. Far more effective in the anime, where the idea that they're brothers is established earlier and more frequently than in the manga, where it's only brought up a mere few pages before The Reveal.
  • Teen Genius: He's the youngest member of the Council and the Ten Wizard Saints, and is seen as a prodigy.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: To Jellal. It's not an accident.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: As a part of his Uncanny Family Resemblance.

Ultear

See Fairy Tail Other Guilds.

Yuri

    Dragons 
Dragons in Fairy Tail are rarely seen by human beings, and are thus considered mythical creatures. However, they have existed since ancient times.
  • Breath Weapon: All dragons have some form of this or another.
  • Elemental Powers: So far nearly all the dragons have powers over elements, with some of them being seemingly made of said elements.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Zirconis stated the dragons who liked humans taught them dragon slayer magic to fight off against the ones who found them rather delicious. Unfortunately, they didn't account humans using the powers on all dragons. And one of those slayers later turns into Acnologia.
  • Made of Iron: Aside from Dragon Slayer magic and other dragons, they are capable of No Selling and shrugging off any attack done them without any effort. Even a minor one like Atlas Flame can laugh off Makarov, a wizard saint.
    • Remember how Dragon Slayer is supposed to harm them? In theory, it should have damaged them. In practice, it's as useless as any other kind of magic unless it is powerful enough. And this is magic that is made for these behemoths.
  • No Name Given: The Dark Dragon that fought Gajeel and the Rock Dragon that fought Cobra.
  • No Sell: Normal magic won't leave so much as a scratch. Neither will Dragon Slayer magic unless it is really powerful.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: There are two kinds of dragons: those who love humans, and those who'd love to eat them. Both kinds are downright unstoppable.
    • And as far as physical characteristics go, these guys are all over the place. There are some standard looking dragons, then there are the ones that are made of rocks, surrounded by flames, have feathers, one even has big ass blades sticking out of his face.
  • Takes One to Kill One: One of the only things that can hurt a Dragon is another Dragon. Dragon Slayers can hurt Dragons because their magic is Dragon magic. Demons may be an exception since Silver's Ice Devil Slayer power was able to freeze Atlas Flame's spirit. Then again, Atlas Flame was already dead, being a spirit.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: As Mavis notes, none of the Dragon Slayers actually manage to slay a single dragon (all of which are implied to not even be on Acnologia's level), and they are equipped with magic that is supposed to make it possible. For perspective, Zirconis is the Butt Monkey who has the upper hand over two Dragon Slayers (one being S-class), while the other dragons are against one at most, without even trying.
    • Worse still is the fact that the Dragon Slayers were the only seven people among hundreds of powerful mages that could even hurt them. And considering the implication that Acnologia is coming back in a year, humanity might be screwed.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: While the dragons seems to be impervious to magic, even powerful and ancient spells or normally game-breaking powers, they can be damaged by the Dragon Slayer magic. In fact even if the seven Dragon Slayers failed to kill them, they still managed to make them flinch with their attacks.

Igneel

The King of Fire Dragons. He's Natsu's foster father, as well as the one who taught him Dragon Slayer magic. He disappeared mysteriously seven years before the start of the story, but still watches over Natsu from afar.

Voiced by: Hidekatsu Shibata (JP), Bob Magruder (EN)

  • Action Dad: To Natsu, though he's obviously not Natsu's biological father.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: According to Atlas Flame, he is the King of the Fire Dragons.
  • Big Good: He serves this role by the time the Tartaros arc rolls around, when he finally comes out of hiding to battle Acnologia, with Mavis serving as the secondary Big Good to Zeref's Big Bad
  • Break the Badass: According to Atlas Flame, he was on the receiving end of this from a demon known as E.N.D. The kicker? E.N.D. just so happens to be the Guild Master of Tartarus, the same guild that massacred the Magic Council and seems hell-bent to Kill All Humans.
  • The Call Knows Where You Live: Acnologia knows where Natsu lives, anyway. His reappearance causes Igneel to wonder aloud if he finally has no choice but to make his move.
  • Chekhov's Gun: The scarf he gave to Natsu went on to save him from Zeref's Death Magic.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: In Chapter 412, Igneel seems to have gotten in a good shot at Acnologia, as Acnologia is seen being thrown to the ground from way high up. That said, Mard Geer did imply that Acnologia could be affected by Face, so it could have also been a combination of the two.
  • Disappeared Dad: To Natsu.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has some scars over his body.
  • He Was Right There All Along: Throughout the entire series, he has been hiding inside of Natsu. He finally emerges when he had no choice but to intervene, or risk losing Natsu (and by extension, possibly himself) to Acnologia's onslaught.
  • Hot-Blooded: Natsu inherited his temper from him.
  • Playing with Fire: The Fire Dragon.
  • Meaningful Name: 'Igneel' sounds very similar to 'Dragneel,' and 'ignis' is the Latin root for 'fire.'
  • Megaton Punch: His own version of the Fire Dragon Iron Fist, and it's strong enough to make Acnologia stagger.
  • Orcus on His Throne: A rare heroic example. He takes his sweet time for 14 years before he finally gets off his ass to do something about Acnologia, preferring to let his son do all the work before that. Especially egregious when he could've come out the first time Acnologia came out to play 7 years ago. (Granted, Mavis saves Fairy Tail's entire ass in the end, but still....)
  • Save the Villain: Unintentionally, but his actions count. Acnologia was about to kill Marde Guille, and by extension, destroy E.N.D.'s Book of Zeref, with its Wave Motion Gun Breath Weapon. Igneel rams into Acnologia before it could finish charging, interrupting it. Probably Justified, however, considering Acnologia's Breath Weapon enters Fantastic Nuke territory with just how much destruction it causes with one use, and that it would have probably killed everyone else in and around Magnolia if it had had a chance to fire.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: When Acnologia returns during the battle against Fairy Tail and Tartarus, Igneel reveals he's been inside Natsu ever since he disappeared.
  • Tsundere: Shown to be smiling and laughing when near Natsu, but is far more rude and bad-tempered when Grandine's around.
  • The Worf Barrage: Blasts Acnologia with a point-blank Breath Weapon. It didn't even scratch it.
  • Worthy Opponent: Acnologia acknowledges him as one, which is why Acnologia is both willing to speak to him and actually try his best to kill him instead of simply toying with him.
  • Your Princess Is in Another Castle: What's that, Natsu? You wanna have a heart-to-heart with your Disappeared Dad? Nope! Go get E.N.D.'s Book of Zeref from Marde Guille first. And don't you dare open it.

Metalicana

The Iron Dragon who raised Gajeel. Not much is known about him.

Grandinenote 

The Sky Dragon who raised Wendy. Not much is known about her.

Voiced by: Shoko Tsuda (JP), Pam Dougherty (EN)

Acnologia

The Black Dragon who flies around the world, bringing destruction to wherever dark thoughts gather. When he Was Once a Man in his youth, he was the most powerful and feared Dragon Slayer ever, having wracked up an enormous body count of dragons. Somehow, he himself morphed into a dragon, and is considered such a menace that it is believed only after Zeref himself is killed that anybody has a chance against him.
  • Animorphism: He was once a human.
  • Always a Bigger Fish: Probably the one thing that could make Tartarus have a Mass "Oh, Crap!" reaction.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: He became the Dragon King by killing many other dragons and eventually transformed into one.
    • He also takes over the world in Future Rogue's timeline.
  • Badass: Not that it would care about anyone pointing this out, but he takes out 21 of Fairy Tail's most powerful mages in one shot.
    • Break the Badass: What he does to Fairy Tail.
    • In hindsight, he was really Badass as a human, considering he killed masses of Dragons. The top guilds had trouble with a mere seven; Acnologia likely killed hundreds on its own.
  • Bigger Bad: He is more of a force of nature than a person (mainly because he rarely talks), and he tends to hide in the background while actual villains take up the spotlight. The primary focus is currently on Zeref, whose Tartarus minions menace the common folk in his place, but he remains a far more threatening creature. The heroes believe they have no shot against him until they kill Zeref himself.
  • Blood Knight: He really enjoyed slaying dragons when he was human.
  • Boomerang Bigot: Looks down on humans despite being one once. Judging by what he says to Igneel, he doesn't like Dragons either.
  • Breath Weapon/Wave Motion Gun: It appeared to have turned Sirius Island into a crater.
  • Dark Is Evil: Or at least, dark is indiscriminately destructive.
  • The Dreaded: He is a creature so powerful, so dangerous, that Zeref himself fears him, considering him to be a being that humans could never match. Whenever he appears, a Mass "Oh, Crap!" is sure to follow, first at Sirius Island (where even Gildartz, Mavis, and Makarov were speechless), and then with the entirety of Tartaros (even the egotistical Mard Geer had to sweatdrop at his appearance).
  • Diabolus Ex Machina: He always shows up as a way to say "Fuck you" to anybody who thinks they're about to win. It often has nothing to do with him, yet he shows up anyway, purely to fuck with people.
    • While celebrating their survival in their win against Grimoire Heart, out of nowhere and with little warning, Acnologia comes and toys with Fairy Tail before destroying the entire island outright with a single breath-attack.
    • He becomes this again during the Tartarus arc. Marde Geer speculates that, once again, he was drawn to Zeref's presence (Zeref himself is terrified of the motherfucker, mind).
  • Foreshadowing: A subtle one during the Sirius Island arc: when Acnologia manages to pin Makarov to the ground, rather than mauling him like a beast he hits him with his arms, in other words, like a person punching someone. Much later we find out that he actually was a human.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: He turned into a dragon after slaying many of them, though it is implied he was transformed due to separate means.
  • The Juggernaut: If the top guilds, Fairy Tail included, struggled with 7 lowly Dragons, then the Sirius Island group truly didn't have a single hope of stopping this behemoth.
  • Just Toying with Them: Gildarts notices that Acnologia is simply toying with the Fairy Tail wizards when he attacks them.
  • Kick Them While They Are Down: An interesting example. Acnologia wanted to take the opportunity to kill Marde Guille and destroy E.N.D.'s Book of Zeref while he was on his rampage, and was about to hit Marde Guille with his Breath Weapon, which would have destroyed E.N.D. - and probably everyone else in a ten mile radius - in the process, ensuring E.N.D. can never be resurrected. Igneel intervened just in time. Borders on Dangerously Genre Savvy, given how they work.
  • Kill 'em All: His creed as a Dragon Slayer. Not so much that he was being a Knight Templar about his role, but moreso that he really liked his job, and massacred all dragons he came across, friend or foe, pretty much because he could.
  • Knight of Cerebus: When you can pull off a Mass "Oh, Crap!" reaction...
    • Hero Killer: He's the reason Gildarts is missing his left arm and most of his organs.
      • Taken up to eleven when it tries to blow up Sirius Island and everyone on it. Thanks to the power of Fairy Sphere, they survive.
  • Meaningful Name: Given one in 401 thanks to Alternate Character Reading . It means Dark Advent of End Times.
  • Names to Run Away From Really Fast: "Black Dragon of the Apocalypse."
  • Nigh Invulnerable: So far, it has shrugged off Makarov's Titan form, a Combination Attack from the best mages on Fairy Tail's roster (including four different Dragon Slayers), and even Igneel's Breath Weapon. This thing is virtually unstoppable.
    • Recently though, he has shown some vulnerability, actually staggering from one of Igneel's Megaton Punchs and, as of chapter 412, was smashed into the ground by the very same dragon. The later might be a case of Worf Had the Flu though, as Mard Geer states that Face would affect even Acnologia, which makes sense given his previous form as a Dragonslayer turned with magic, and the device had finally activated by that point.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Just as intelligent and capable of speech as the other dragons in the series. He is also ruthless, brutal, and completely chaotic. Not to mention, he Was Once a Man.
  • Physical God: Quite possibly the closest thing to one in the Fairy-Tail-verse. His sheer power makes everyone who sees him, including the likes of Zeref and Mard Geer, go Oh, Crap, he No Sells everything that's thrown at him (including Magic that's supposed to be able to kill his kind), and he utterly destroys everything that gets in his way. When Zeref says that humans could never hope to match him, he's speaking literally.
  • Pride: Considers himself far above everything and everyone, humans and Dragons alike. He won't even speak to humans.
  • Puny Earthlings: Acnologia considers humans to be no more that mere insects and—just as humans have no desire to talk or reason with insects—has no desire to talk or reason with humans, despite the fact that he used to be human.
  • Red Baron: "The Black Dragon of the Apocalypse" and "The Dragon King". Marde also calls him Darkwing Acnologia.
  • Roar Before Beating: Later on, he almost completely destroys the island in a few swings were it not for the intervention of Makarov and Mavis.
  • Run or Die: The common reaction to his appearance is to either stop whatever you're doing and leg it as fast as you can in the opposite direction or prepare to make your Last Stand.
  • Suddenly Voiced: The first time we ever hear him bother to speak is during his fight with Igneel, when he notes that he's surprised to see another dragon after so long. He goes so far to say that he acknowledges the Fire Dragon King as an opponent... right before voicing his decision to destroy him.
  • Superpersistent Predator: The moment it senses Zeref's presence, it immediately makes a beeline for him.
  • Walking Spoiler: Well, technically, it flies.
  • Was Once a Man: Acnologia was once a Dragon Slayer who was turned into a Dragon via an unknown method.
  • Wind from Beneath My Wings: Just having this monster fly overhead creates a shockwave so powerful that it can topple an entire building.
  • Worf Had the Flu: Implied as of chapter 412. Mard Geer speculated earlier that Face's activation would affect Acnologia as well, given his previous form as a Dragonslayer transformed by magic. Sure enough, once Face is activated, Acnologia comes a-tumbling down from the sky hit by one of Igneel's strikes, seemingly defeated.

Weißlogia

The White Dragon who raised Sting, and was killed by him to turn him into a "true" Dragon Slayer.
  • Badass Beard: As seen in a picture, he was bearded and apparently quite aged.
  • Back from the Dead: Reappears with Skiadrum in Chapter 412. What remains to be seen is if they're truly still alive, or if they're ghosts of some kind.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Reappears with Metalicana, Grandine, and Skiadrum to destroy the Faces.
  • Death Seeker: By letting Sting kill him and bathe in his blood, Weißlogia hoped to create the ultimate Dragon Slayer.
  • Good Counterpart: Perhaps to Acnologia, judging by their names having the same ending.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: Contrary to popular belief, White magic, which he taught to Sting, is not Light magic (which is its own specific brand and was used by a former member of Fairy Tail) - it's the equivalent of Holiness.
    • Holy Burns Evil: What his magic is implied to do.
    • Light 'em Up: White magic causes a white glow to surround the caster, but otherwise, is not related to Light magic in any way.
  • Meaningful Name: "Weiß" is German for "white".
  • Odd Name Out: Weißlogia's title is the "White Dragon" rather than the "Light Dragon".
    • Because his magic is "holy", not "light".
  • Posthumous Character: Sting killed him years ago.

Skiadrum

The Shadow Dragon who raised Rogue, and was killed by him to turn him into a "true" Dragon Slayer.
  • Back from the Dead: Reappears along with Weißlogia to assist Metalicana and Grandine in destroying the Faces. That said, it's still unknown if they're truly still alive, or ghosts of some kind.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Returned with the other dragons to destroy the Faces.
  • Casting a Shadow: He is a Shadow Dragon
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite being a dark dragon, he still taught humans how to defend themselves like Igneel.
  • Ill Dragon: He was deathly ill and was Mercy Killed by Rogue.
  • Intangible Man: According to Rogue, the Shadow Dragon can make itself intangible in order to hunt its prey.
  • Meaningful Name: "Skia" is Greek for "shadow".
  • Mercy Kill: What Rogue does to him.
  • Posthumous Character: Rogue killed him years ago because he was terminally ill.

Zirconis

The Jade Dragon. He was killed 400 years ago by Acnologia during the dragons' civil war, in which he opposed those who wanted to live in harmony with humans. Wendy resurrects his spirit for information on what happened to her, Natsu, and Gajeel's dragon parents.

Voiced by: Takaya Kuroda (JP)

  • Badass Beard: He has two tendrils on his chin that look like a Fu Manchu. He strokes them when he's talking.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He's funny, but still stands up to two dragon slayers, and in the anime, actually gets scary when he's mad, especially when he stops talking.
  • Butt Monkey: Played with. He's the weakest of the seven dragons that came through the Eclipse Gate, but that by no means makes him weak, as he was still able to mop the floor with Wendy and Mirajane.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: He reappears later as one of the seven dragons to make it through the gate. Of course, he doesn't know who Lucy and Wendy are at this point.
  • Character Tics: Stroking his tendrils.
  • Evil Is Funny: A bastard of a dragon that enjoys eating humans, but he is absolutely hilarious.
  • The Gadfly: He scares Team Natsu (except Erza, who wasn't present, and Wendy, who's concentrating on keeping his spirit around) just to see their reaction.
  • Interplay of Sex and Violence: He doesn't enjoy eating men, but does like eating women. Does This Remind You of Anything?
  • Jerkass: Borders on Politically Incorrect Villain at some times.
  • Meaningful Name: Invokes this with Princess Hisui, whose name means "jade".
  • Mr. Exposition: He's the one who revealed the origins of the Dragon Graveyard beneath Crocus.
  • The Nudifier: His Breath Weapon.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: A ghost dragon.
  • Posthumous Character: Zig-zagged; he's dead in the present, and was temporarily revived by Wendy's Milky Way spell. We later see him as alive, thanks to the Timy Wimey Ball plot of the Eclipse Gate, but once the Eclipse Gate is destroyed, he goes back to being dead.
  • Power Perversion Potential: Averted. His Breath Weapon can rid the clothes of of a human being, but he does it just so he can eat them. According to him, clothing ruins the flavor.
  • The Runt at the End/What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: Compared to the other dragons, Zirconis is pathetic and pretty much a joke. Not that this makes him less dangerous, as he manages to No Sell Mira's Satan Soul attack as if it was nothing. And even despite going up against two Dragon Slayers (Wendy and Laxus) while the others had one at most, he still has the upper hand.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Is it Zirconis or Zilconis?
  • To Serve Man: And he's proud of it. He even considers 400 years ago to be peaceful times because dragons were top of the food chain and could eat humans as they pleased.

Motherglare

Another of the seven dragons that comes through the Eclipse Gate. This particular dragon is notable for being Future Rogue's personal mount, as well as being a Mook Maker.

Voiced by: Furukou Shitayama (JP)

  • Adaptation Expansion: Motherglare gets a lot more characterization in the anime.
  • Ambiguous Gender: Its actual gender hasn't been confirmed yet. It's voice in the anime appears to be masculine.
  • Dark Is Evil: Hir scales are an extremely dark grey.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: He doesn't understand why Atlas Flame would help Natsu, for simply being a child raised by Igneel
  • Giant Flyer: Serves as this to Future Rogue. He's also the largest of the seven dragons.
  • Hero Killer: Motherglare's hatchlings were shown killing several prominent characters before Ultear turned back time.
  • Made Of Diamond: Claims to have an adamantine body, impervious even to the fangs of other dragons. To his/her defense, it has a body full of hard-looking scales. Is worth noticing that said body is so hard that it crashes the Eclipse Gate when he falls on it.
  • Mook Maker: Can create mini-dragon creatures.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Wave Motion Gun: Its Breath Weapon. Whatever it is, it can't harm Atlas Flame's body.

Atlas Flame

One of the seven dragons that manages to come through the Eclipse Gate. Also the 'Eternal Flame' of the Giant Village.

Voiced by: Takashi Matsuyama (JP)

  • Badass: Even though it is attributed to being a dragon, he still qualifies for being able to No Sell a giant Makarov's fists and Laxus' lightning.
    • Badass Boast : Tends to boast quite a bit about his flames.
    Atlas Flame: "You'd be mistaken to take my hellfires lightly.Flames of Titans that bellow more violently than those in Hell,and the one that has ingested these flames,my fellow fire dragon."
  • Chekhov's Gunman: After four hundred years (to him, anyway), he runs into Natsu again in the Giant Village. Turns out, he was what they were looking for, there.
  • Dead All Along: The Atlas Flame seen in the Giant Village is just his spirit.
  • Heel-Face Turn: After finding out that Natsu is Igneel's son.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: With what little remains of his spirits power he sacrifices himself to free the Giants.
  • Honorary Uncle: Natsu calls him "Uncle" after Atlas Flame reveals he's Igneel's friend.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: His death caused by the Ice Devil Slaying Magic caused him to lose most of his memories. Though he is able to recall some of it when reminded.
  • Living MacGuffin: He's the 'Eternal Flame' that protects the Giant Village.
  • Mr. Exposition: He's the one who tells Fairy Tail about E.N.D. and Silver (if in somewhat vague terms), foreshadowing the start of the Tartarus Arc.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: So far he's capable of burning any magic that touches him. Until he met Silver, the Ice Devil Slayer, who froze him (and the rest of the Giant Village) solid.That said,there's a chance he died before that,by more natural causes.
  • Playing with Fire: Igneel is not the only one who has a domain over fire.
    • Hell Fire: He describes his Breath Weapon as such before unleashing it against Fairy Tail.
    • Wreathed in Flames: He apparently has flames instead of flesh, giving the overall impression of a burning dragon skeleton.
  • Red Baron: "The Eternal Flame."
  • Take a Third Option: Implied. He's good friends with Igneel, a dragon in the pro-human faction, but doesn't seem to mind eating humans or barbecuing them. It's likely that he stayed out of the dragon civil war, taking neither side to avoid facing his friend.

Levia

Another of the seven dragons that comes through the Eclipse Gate.

Voiced by: Yoshihisa Kawahara (JP)

  • Beard of Evil: Despite his ichtian looks, he sports a beard at the tip of his chin.
  • Break Them by Talking: Tries to do this to Rogue by revealing it was his future self who brought them to the present.
  • Dark Is Evil: The anime gives him extremely dark coloration.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is derived from "Leviathan", a giant sea monster, to go with his aquatic attributes, namely his fins.
  • No Sell: Rogue failed to harm him at all, but only because he was too indecisive and mentally unsure.
  • Slasher Smile: Even for dragon standards, he's constantly grinning.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: He and Scissor Runner don't work well together.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: Invokes this as part of his speech to Rogue.

Scissor Runner

Another of the seven dragons that comes through the Eclipse Gate.

     Sylph Labyrinth 
A treasure hunter guild composed of non-wizards.

Sword Hiroshi

Part of the three-man team sent to Sun Village, he wields a mechanical chain blade.

Hammer Lala

Part of the three-man team sent to Sun Village, he wields a hammer called "Stronger".

Sniper Drake

Part of the three-man team sent to Sun Village, and the team's sniper.

Zeref

Affiliation: N/A
Magic: Living Magic, Death Magic

The most evil wizard who ever lived. He is known to have used magic to create demons and kill everything around him, and is responsible for most of the world's problems, directly and indirectly. Many evil wizards have hoped to resurrect him since his defeat 400 years ago. In reality, he has been living all this time on Sirius Island, where he's had plenty of time to think about all the trouble his magic causes.

Voiced by: Akira Ishida (JP), Joel McDonald (EN)

  • The Ageless: It's still not clear how he pulled it off, but he has been stated several times to be immortal, and became immortal four hundred years ago. However, it's not Complete Immortality, because Zeref himself has indicated that he can still die if somebody kills him. Only problem is, he's become so powerful that he can probably count the amount of things that can kill him on one hand. He in fact created a bunch of powerful demons solely because he hoped they would be able to kill him.
  • All-Powerful Bystander: What he was prior to the Sirius Island arc, and what he wanted to be indefinitely. Until Hades forced his hand.
  • The Aloner
  • Ambiguously Human: He looks perfectly human, and he might have started out as one too. But his ageless immortality, his sheer power, and his tendency to speak of humans as if he wasn't one himself, all imply that he isn't quite human anymore (if he ever was). Of course, given his opinion that he has long since crossed the in-universe Moral Event Horizon, he could simply no longer see himself as human anymore.
  • Anti-Villain: He's a mix of Types I, II, and III, with a dash of IV.
  • Apologetic Attacker: When he can't control his powers, he constantly apologizes to people, animals or plants that get near him.
  • Badass Boast: When Mavis asks him if he is going to war, he answers, "No. It will be a one-sided annihilation."
  • Badass Long Robe: A black (originally red in the manga) tunic of some kind, worn under a white, toga-like outer layer, complete with a High Collar of Doom.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: Maybe. Actually, big maybe.
  • Big Bad: He's responsible for the existence of demons, and becomes active after he's found on Sirius Island and decides to wipe out humanity.
  • Big Damn Villains: He appears to mean well, so the villain part is currently debatable, but when Hades is driven off with no sign of repenting, he's the one who takes care of him.
  • Bigger Bad: Before becoming active in the Sirius Island arc, he's dormant and distant from the other villains, though his demons still affect the plot.
  • Bishōnen: To the surprise of both the audience and the characters.
  • Creating Life: He (literally) wrote the book on Living Magic. While other dark mages, including Hades, have been shown using it to create mooks, Zeref has used it to create anything from giant Eldritch Abominations to fully-sentient demons, many of which make up the Dark Guild known as Tartarus.
  • Creepy Monotone: Interestingly, his voice has become this in the anime following the Grand Magic Games. Possibly justified, however, considering how much he's changed since the Sirius Island arc.
  • Cry Cute: Admit it, this is not what you first imagined with the way he was built up throughout the series.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Zancrow and Hades got their asses handed to them by him.
  • Curse: Zeref suffers from a rather cruel variation of this. Basically, the more he values life, the more everything around him dies. On the other hand, if he does not value life, he will regain control of his immense magic, and he will no longer automatically kill everything around him. However, the fact that he doesn't value life means that he will probably still kill people anyway, only intentionally this time. This way, it is set up so that he will always end up killing people, whether he wants to or not.
  • Dark Is Evil: He's not called "Black Mage" for nothing; along with other, more common dark magics, he could create his own demons and magical objects that were designed to kill people.
  • Death Glare: The image above shows how good he is at this.
  • Death Seeker: He expects to be killed by Natsu someday. And he'll wage war on humanity if he has to for it. The entire reason the demons of Tartaros even exist is because Zeref was trying to create something powerful enough to kill him.
  • Dissonant Serenity: He can talk about wiping out humanity in the same sad apologetic tone he uses when killing people by accident.
  • Doom Magnet: Even though it's probably all his fault, wherever he goes, Acnologia is never far behind. And that's assuming he doesn't kill everything around him himself, first.
  • The Dreaded: Very few names invoke as much unmitigated terror as his does.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Black hair, but close enough.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Apologizing to the wolves that die trying to attack him.
  • Evil Sorcerer: Kind of.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Hades never stood a chance against this guy.
  • Friendly Enemy: Towards Natsu. When the two finally see each other again in Chapter 372, Zeref greets him by smiling, and saying that he knew Natsu would be strong enough to make it that deep inside of Tartarus' headquarters.
  • Heel Realization: Had one over 400 years ago.
  • Kaleidoscope Eyes: They change between red and black depending on his mood.
  • Killer Rabbit: Easily the most feared mage to ever walk the face of Earth-Land... who also happens to be a self-loathing Death Seeker who has a tendency to break down in Tears of Remorse.
  • Knight Templar: God help you if he thinks you're evil.
  • Living MacGuffin: Several villains are out for his power, if not his very existence.
  • The Man Behind the Man: While he is technically not the leader of Tartarus (that would be E.N.D.), because he is the one who created the demons that make up the guild, they idolize him, making him something of a de facto figurehead. He otherwise has no direct involvement with them.
  • Misanthrope Supreme: Chapter 340 reveals that he has become this since the events of Sirius Island. Turns out that being Really 400 Years Old has given him the unique perspective to observe some rather unfortunate traits of human nature as well as the fact that humans never seem to learn from their past mistakes. What Hades pulled was the last straw to him, and Future Rogue's actions probably didn't help, either.
  • Omnicidal Maniac/Put Them All Out of My Misery: Once reaching the conclusion the world will never accept him, Zeref casually states he will wipe out humanity.
  • One-Man Army/Person of Mass Destruction: The most powerful mage in history, bar none.
  • Only He Can Kill Me/The Only One Allowed to Defeat Me: What he thinks of Natsu.
  • Overarching Villain: He is a main villain for the whole series.
  • Posthumous Character: Subverted.
  • Really 400 Years Old
  • Red Baron: "The Black Mage"
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: A signifier that he has killing intent.
  • Redemption Demotion: Played with. Zeref outright states that learning the value of life made him weaker, but it also led to his Power Incontinence, suggesting not so much a loss of power as a loss of control.
    • Worf Had the Flu: It is precisely because of this that he lost to Ultear, who is, for all intents and purposes, not even close to being in his league. He states that because he didn't want to kill her, his Death Magic was weakened enough for him to actually lose. Despite this, Ultear was still so exhausted after fighting him that she collapsed.
  • Reluctant Warrior: The reason he kills Hades is solely because Grimoire Heart wanted to use him to destroy more lives.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Ultear and her guild are out to unseal him. His "resurrection" by Jellal was part of a plot to help unseal him. Ultimately subverted later on; he was never sealed to begin with, he just didn't feel like doing anything.
  • Seeing Through Another's Eyes: Mavis implies that Zeref was able to do this through Obra during the Grand Magic Games.
  • Tears of Remorse: Especially after he realizes Natsu isn't powerful enough to kill him yet.
  • Thanatos Gambit: The entire reason he created his demons, and why his demons are trying to activate Face, is so that E.N.D would be released, and would serve its original purpose: Killing Zeref. That's right, his demons are just an elaborate way for him to try to commit suicide, since almost nothing else in all of Earth Land even comes close to being able to put him out of his misery.
  • Then Let Me Be Evil: Since the events of Sirius Island, he kept pondering whether the world would truly change for the better and, having decide it won't, he decides to wipe out humanity to cleanse the world of its sins.
  • Time Stands Still: Before he appeared to Natsu in Chapter 372, he somehow caused the Tartarus mooks attacking him to freeze in place, while the world around him had its colors inverted, so that the two can speak one on one.
  • Tome of Eldritch Lore: The Book of Zeref, named after him, and written by him as well. It's a how-to book for the Black Arts, and explains in detail how to summon demons.
    • It turns out that it's not the Book, but Books; each book has the instructions to summons to summon one demon. Hence why Tartarus is sometimes called "Zeref's Bookshelf."
  • Tranquil Fury: He never raises his voice when he's angry, and yet his Death Glare can reduce people to being petrified with fear.
  • Walking Spoiler: It's virtually impossible to talk about him to someone who hasn't gotten to the point where he shows up without ruining something.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: To the demons of Tartarus despite never having actually met him in person. Their primary goal is to meet him for the first time. Most of their villainy is merely them doing what they think Zeref wants from them.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: According to Mard Geer, the real reason why he's so miserable. He's only half right.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: A Death Seeker who hates himself so much that he chose to become The Aloner out of guilt and fear of what his power has could still do to the world. And yet, the moment he's pissed off, it becomes clear that he's The Dreaded for a damn good reason.
  • You Won't Like Me When I'm Angry: His mere expression has been enough to make people cry when he's pissed off.

Bora

Affiliation: Titan Nose (former)
Magic: Fire Magic, Ring Magic (Charm, Sleep), Telekinesis

A fire mage who kidnaps young girls while posing as Salamander of Fairy Tail. As the first villain of the series, he tries to do the same to Lucy before she becomes a member.

Voiced by: Yoshimitsu Shimoyama (JP), Ian Sinclair (EN)

  • Continuity Nod: He appears in Juvia's flashback during the Phantom Lord arc as one of the men who couldn't stand the constant rain.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: In the anime only, he straightens up his act after being defeated and has Natsu to thank for it. He goes on to act relatively chummy with Fairy Tail by wishing them luck before they put on a play, and appearing during their annual Fantasia parade as a spectator.
  • Jerkass: Kidnaps women for nefarious purposes
  • Lighter and Softer: In the manga, he goes as far as attempting to brand Lucy as a slave with a scorching hot iron, which was removed entirely from the anime. This is given a Hand Wave in the anime later on, with him saying he was actually just scouting for glamour models in an overly-aggressive fashion.
  • Playing with Fire: Purple fire which is used to demonstrate Natsu's ability to eat fire.
  • Power Perversion Potential: Uses illegal Charm Magic to make women fall to his charms.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: It's only for a split second in the anime, but he lets out a high-pitched shriek upon seeing Natsu eat his flames for the first time.
  • Starter Villain: The very first one.
  • Technicolor Fire: His is purple.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

Duke Everlue

Affiliation: N/A
Magic: Earth Magic, Celestial Spirit Magic

A corrupt and unsightly aristocrat with a warped sense of beauty. He is in possession of Daybreak, a book he had blackmailed its author into writing. He uses Earth Magic to dive through the ground, and is also a Celestial Spirit mage.

Voiced by: Katsui Taira (JP), Chris Ayres (EN)

  • Arc Villain: Of the Daybreak arc.
  • Big Bad: Of the Daybreak arc, where Natsu and Lucy take a job to burn the titular book he has in his possession. Too bad he's not willing to give it away that easily.
  • Collector of the Strange: He hires maids he deems to be extremely beautiful. His opinion of "beauty" varies from most everybody else's. He also coerced an author into writing a book with himself as the main character so he could own a one-of-a-kind book.
  • Dirty Old Man: Only hires "beautiful" women.
  • Evil Counterpart: Kind of, to Lucy. He is a summoner, he has a completely different opinion on what makes a woman sexy, and he doesn't care one bit about an author's pride.
  • Gonk: His mustache grows out of his nose.
  • It's All About Me: He a had a book written just to stroke his ego.
  • Large Ham: English dub only.
  • Starter Villain: The first villain Lucy faces as a member of Fairy Tail.
  • Summon Magic: He has a contract with Virgo.
  • Tunnel King: In addition to his Summon Magic.

Ur

Affiliation: N/A
Magic: Maker Magic (Ice-Make), Iced Shell

A powerful ice wizard who taught Lyon and Gray magic. She is also Ultear's mother, but believed her daughter to have died. She sacrificed her life to freeze the demon Deliora and protect her students.

Voiced by: Miyuki Sawashiro (JP), Kira Vincent-Davis (EN)

  • The Ace: Said to be the strongest wizard in her country, which would make her as strong as a Wizard Saint.
  • Action Mom: To Ultear and her adoptive sons, Gray and Lyon.
  • Adult Fear: Seriously. To elaborate: Her only actual child gets sick because of the magic in her body and so she takes her to a local scientist for help, only to be told Ultear's body was damaged to the point where it would have been too hard for her to recognize. Then to add to it, one of her adoptive children runs off to fight something that even she can't take in a fight.
  • And I Must Scream: She uses Iced Shell on Deliora, which transformed her entire body into the ice freezing the demon, and she stays alive in this form. Makarov states that melting the ice would be the equivalent of killing Ur, but as both Lucy and Gray believe, she continues to watch over them as water once Lyon melts her.
  • Artificial Limbs: Made a temporary leg out of ice during her battle with Deliora.
  • Badass: The strongest Ice Wizard in the series until Silver was introduced. If she had lived in Fiore, she could have been a Wizard Saint.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Like Gray and Lyon, she ran around in her underwear to train.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Unlike her daughter.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Deliora eventually dies from being sealed in her ice.
  • Ghost Memory: After her body gets turned into ice, melted into water, and washes out to sea, Ultear is able to experience her memories of when she was told that Ultear had died, and just how much she loved her daughter, by falling in the ocean.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Uses the incredibly powerful Iced Shell, which turns herself into solid ice with which to freeze Deliora.
    • Senseless Sacrifice: In a sense. Turns out Deliora was revived by Tartarus after the events of Galuna Island, where he finally died. However, that's still 10 years in which the world had been free of Deliora's evil. Subverted in that Silver was lying about being Deliora. Ur really did kill him and 10 years later, he's still dead.
  • An Ice Person: The strongest of these seen in the series until Silver was introduced.
  • Inelegant Blubbering: In the manga, her reaction to being falsely told that Ultear, who was only an infant at the time, had died is the only instance of a female's crying being accompanied by mucus in the series. Played for Drama, of course.
    • Changed in the anime to where she instead flat out cries and demands to see Ultear's body. Still heart wrenching though.
  • Informed Ability: Though she is stated to be the strongest wizard in the country, apart from Iced Shell, which both Gray and Lyon can use, she isn't shown doing much fighting-wise.
    • It's worth noting that Ur was quite humble about her power and never seemed to show any advance levels in it while on-screen.
    • Judging from what Gray, Lyon, and Ultear have shown us, it's probably true that she is quite powerful. To elaborate: Ultear inherited her magic and was strong enough to nearly beat Gray, Gray who followed her teachings, is one of Fairy Tail's strongest mages and keeps on getting strong, and Lyon who also was taught by her, is nothing short of a prodigy who overpowered Gray when ever they fought. It's safe to say she's way stronger than we've given her credit for.
  • Missing Mom: She left her daughter with researchers in the hopes that they could help her cope with her abnormally large magical power. Unfortunately, the researchers told Ur that her daughter was dead, all while experimenting on the girl. So Ultear came to believe that Ur abandoned and replaced her, and Ur had to deal with the guilt that she couldn't do anything for her precious daughter.
  • Not Quite Dead: Her body is actually the ice that sealed Deliora, and she continues to watch over her two students.
  • Parental Substitute: To Gray and Lyon.
  • Posthumous Character: Not quite, but close enough.
  • Sexy Mentor: Runs around in her underwear while teaching Gray and Lyon.

Poluchkanote 

Affiliation: Fairy Tail\

A crabby old hermit who lives in the woods outside of Magnolia, and an old friend of Makarov's. She is a skilled healer, but dislikes other humans. She is actually the Edolas counterpart of the dragon Grandine, though she herself is an ordinary human.

Voiced by: Shoko Tsuda (JP), Linda Young (EN)

  • Berserk Button: The only thing she hates more than humans is having them hang around when she's working.
  • Dr. Jerk
  • Grumpy Bear
  • Hermit Guru
  • I Was Quite a Looker: She had pink hair as a young woman.
  • Irony: Earth-land's Grandine is a gentle dragon who likes humans. Poluchka, Edolas' Grandine, is a crabby old woman who makes her low opinion of her own species known to others.
  • Never Mess with Granny: Never shown to do anything on-screen, but she is intimidating enough to scare the crap out of everybody who comes to visit.
  • Perpetual Frowner
  • Prophetic Fallacy: She predicts that something will happen once Fairy Tail gets three Dragon Slayers, but it hasn't been stated exactly what.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning

  • Wham Line: "I am the Grandine from Edolas."

Jude Heartfilia

Affiliation: Heartfilia Konzern (former), Love & Lucky
Click here to see his old look 

Lucy's father, and the owner of a railroad company who puts his business before his daughter.

Voiced by: Banjō Ginga (JP), Bill Jenkins (EN)

  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: A father-daughter example, though they're sadly not together when their love for each other is proven: before his death, Jude sends Lucy gifts (including a year's worth of rent money) every year on her birthday for the seven years she is missing, because he has that much faith she is still alive. Thanks to this, Lucy finally admits that she loves her father.
  • Beard of Sorrow: After losing his money.
  • Break the Haughty: He goes completely bankrupt and is reduced to begging Lucy for money.
  • Disappeared Dad
  • Humble Pie: Once when Lucy calls him out on hiring Phantom Lord to bring her home, and again when he goes bankrupt shortly afterward.
  • Jerkass
  • Killed Off for Real
  • Married to the Job: He became this way after his wife died.
  • Musical Theme Naming: Jude's name, like Lucy's, is from a Beatles song ("Hey Jude").
  • Poor Communication Kills: He probably would have gotten that carriage ride to work if he: 1.) asked more politely to Lucy; 2.) explained what he wanted 100,000 Jewel for; and 3.) had any idea how cheap carriage rides are.
  • Rebuilt Pedestal: To Lucy, as the story progresses. He was emotionally distant and, at times, even abusive to Lucy as a young girl after his wife's death. As such, Lucy grows up to hate his guts and runs away from home. When he hires Phantom Lord to bring her back by force, she cuts ties with him completely. Only after losing his fortune and realizing his own foolish behavior does he manage to begin mending his relationship with his daughter, but it's not until after he dies and proves his devotion to Lucy after she goes missing for seven years that Lucy admits for the first time in years that she loves him.
  • Rich in Dollars, Poor in Sense: After losing all his money, Jude asks Lucy for 100,000 Jewel. Lucy thinks he's being his usual jerkish self and refuses, only for him to later point out he was just asking for money to pay for a carriage to work.
  • Self-Made Man: Lucy's father apparently worked himself up the ladder, starting with a merchant guild he met Layla in. After losing his wealth, he decides to work himself up from the bottom once again.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife

Mato

Affiliation: Grand Magic Games

The mascot and referee of the Grand Magic Games. He's actually King Toma E. Fiore in disguise.

Voiced by: Keiji Fujiwara (JP)

  • Art Evolution: His mask's face goes through several changes very quickly over the Grand Magic Games arc. Compare his costume on the elimination round, first day, and third day of the games; his eyes and hat get progressively larger and closer together, and he loses his dark-colored lips. His appearance in the anime is a blend between his Day 1 and Day 3 looks.
  • Combat Referee
  • Cool Mask: A giant, pumpkin-shaped one that covers his entire face.
  • Significant Anagram: Rearrange his name and you get "Toma", the name of the King.
  • Verbal Tic: "Kapo"note . He accidentally reveals himself to be the King of Fiore when he uses this Verbal Tic while not in the guise of Mato.

Hooded Girl/Future Lucy

Click here for spoiler 
A hooded woman shown loitering around the Grand Magic Games. She's Lucy from a very horrible Bad Future, and she's come to the present through the Eclipse Gate to stop that future from happening.

Voiced by: Aya Hirano

Future Rogue

A mysterious man who appears during the final event of the Grand Magic Games. It's really Rogue Cheney himself from seven years in the future. Like Future Lucy, he came to the present using the Eclipse, though his plans for the future are much more sinister.
Voiced by: Kenichi Suzumura

  • Arc Villain: Of the Grand Magic Games Arc.
  • The Beastmaster
  • Because Destiny Says So: Twisted a bit. He tells the heroes that Lucy will close the gates to the Eclipse because of this, but only because closing the gates will stop the dragons from getting through, and because Lucy is the only one capable of doing it.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Frosch's death becomes this to Rogue in the future (approximately in about a year), starting his fall into darkness.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: Orders the dragons to not kill his present self in order for a Stable Time Loop to occur.
  • Didn't See That Coming
    • He came to the present not knowing there'd be another Lucy to screw things up for him.
    • He gets hit by this a third time when Natsu breaks his control over Atlas Flame via The Power of Friendship and rides him into battle.
  • Dragon Rider
  • Duality Motif: He killed Sting and got both the powers of the Shadow Dragon Slayer and the White Dragon Slayer. This is emphasized by his appearance, which combines black and white colouring and his Multicolored Hair. Especially when he enters the White Shadow Dragon Mode, half of his face remains the same while the other one is concealed by a shadow.
  • Eye Scream: He's missing his right eye.
  • Facial Markings: Has a tattoo on the left side of his face.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry
  • Future Badass: He has evidently become far stronger, and is able to wipe out entire waves of soldiers without much effort. He's also powerful enough to defeat Natsu even when the latter isn't holding back by invoking his full power. Natsu himself recognizes Future Rogue as an powerful enemy,and admiting that someone is stronger than him is not something usual for Natsu.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has one completely replacing his right eye.
  • Hero Killer: He kills Future Lucy, and murdered his own timeline's Sting. He is also the first person since Fukuro to completely defeat Natsu.
  • Kill All Humans: Plans to create a new Age of Dragons by using the dragons that came through the Eclipse Gate to wipe out humanity.
  • The Man Behind the Man: To Hisui; he's the real reason the Eclipse 2 Project exists.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He comes from the future claiming to save it from 10,000 dragons when he really wants to create a Stable Time Loop where the dragons attack anyway, and tells Princess Hisui that the Eclipse can be used as a weapon to defeat them when there's no such thing. Also, by trying to kill Lucy for trying to close the Eclipse, he tricks the heroes into thinking that closing the gate is a bad idea, leaving the doors open long enough for a few dragons to get through.
  • Multicolored Hair
  • Oh, Crap: He's visibly sweating when he notices that Natsu has eaten Atlas Flames' flames.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: To hide his missing right eye.
  • Power Parasite: He killed Sting and stole his White Dragon powers. The combo is powerful enough to defeat Natsu.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His remaining eye is red.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Subverted; he says he wishes to save the past by using something called the Eclipse Cannon back when it is powerful enough to defeat the dragons that will ravage Fiore, and that Lucy will get in the way. Then it turns out he made the whole thing up so Princess Hisui would open the Eclipse so the dragons can come through it, giving him a strong enough army to take down Acnologia and rule the world; the bit about Lucy getting in the way still holds, though.
  • Start of Darkness: His losing Frosh a year after the games ended.
  • Swallowed Whole: He subjects the Kingdom's soldiers, including the Hungry Wolf Knights, to this via his shadows.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: When it is revealed that Rogue intends to destroy Acnologia, this trope comes to mind. His original plan involved using ten thousand dragons to destroy the lone Acnologia.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Present!Rogue and Sting get their asses handed by Natsu in the games. Future!Rogue mandhandles the living hell out of the same guy.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Present!Rogue is the Token Good Teammate of Sabertooth who reacts to the nature of his teammates with distaste. Future!Rogue has no trouble murdering Lucy and enslaving the human race, knowing it will likely make them extinct.
  • Walking Spoiler
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Subverted; Natsu notices he's too evil to have intentions as good as saving the future, and he's right.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb

Walrot Seeken

Affiliation: Ten Wizard Saints; Fairy Tail
Magic: Green Magic
Guild Mark: Left Forearm (color unknown)

A nature-loving member of the Ten Wizard Saints. He, along Mavis and Master Hades, is also one of the founding members of Fairy Tail.
  • Badass: By virtue of being one of the Four Gods of Ishgal, his magic abilities and power are superior to that of Makarov's.
    • Badass Grandpa: He's over 105 years old, though he was One of the Four Gods before Fairy Tail.
    • Actually subverted. He says himself that his magic has little to no offensive power and he's no good in a fight. He just has powerful support magic and was granted sainthood for his good deeds.
      • Remember Jura? Who, at one point, dismissed the title and simply claimed he was the weakest of the group? Of course, suffice to say, being the weakest simply doesn't mean weak. All he's shown so far is merely his support abilities, and even if he is more of a support mage, it doesn't necessarily mean he's a pushover.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Has an odd habit of telling non-sensical jokes at the most unfitting of opportunities. A common trope that applies to most of the other Fairy Tail members.
  • Cool Old Guy: More than 105 years old and still pretty damn amazing.
  • Fan Disservice: Wanna see him naked in a hot spring? Yeah, neither did Team Natsu. Though, it did allow them to see Fairy Tail guild mark on his arm, suggesting he's still technically a member, just inactive or retired.
  • The Gadfly: He likes to joke and screw with his guests frequently... even at unfitting times.
  • Green Thumb: Uses Green Magic. He actively uses his powers to turn deserts into grasslands.
  • Humble Hero: Despite being considered god-like among the Wizard Saints, he's very modest about himself. He even mentions just because he is on the top four in the continent, doesn't mean he is top four in the world.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: Fairy Tail Year Zero shows him looking handsome, if not a Bishonen.
  • Mundane Utility: Despite him being among the four most impressive wizards of the continent, he still mainly uses his awe-inspiring powers for things such as gardening or transportation.
  • Nice Guy: From what we've seen so far, he is a kind and caring person.
  • Non-Action Guy: Claims to be this. His magic still turns out to be quite powerful.
  • Plant Person: Possibly — his head looks like a tree. He looked normal 105 years ago, when he founded Fairy Tail.
  • Retired Badass: His Fairy Tail guild mark suggests he's still technically a part of the guild, just not an active member.
  • Was Once a Man: He is one of the Four Gods of Ishgar which are all said to be not human. And he does indeed look just as much as a tree as a human. However, in the flashback from 105 years ago, he was unambiguously human without the plant features, so something must have happened during the years to make him what he is now. Though it is very possible that it was his own magic, and he himself chose to turn into a tree.
