This page is for all the characters of Fairy Tail who were introduced in the first anime series, which ran from 2009 to 2013.
Zentopia is the primary religious organization in Earth-land.
- The Atoner: After the Neo-Oración Seis uses them for their evil plans, everyone in the group resolves to absolve themselves of their sins.
- Meaningful Name: The name is a cross between "zen" and "utopia", referring to a peaceful state of mind and location, respectively.
- Saintly Church: At first it appears to be a Corrupt Church whose members clash with Fairy Tail and seem to want the Infinity Clock for some nefarious purpose, but they are actually being manipulated by the Neo-Oración Seis.
- Unwitting Pawn: The entire group is strung along by the Neo-Oración Seis into helping them gather pieces of the Infinity Clock.

The head of the Church of Zentopia.
- Back for the Finale: He's seen in the Continuity Cavalcade among the wizards who lend their magic power to Lucy's Fairy Sphere against Acnologia.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: He's brainwashed into becoming a raving lunatic courtesy of Lapointe.
- Cool Old Guy: He has no magic, but he is a Reasonable Authority Figure who helps his own organization's members atone for all the wrongdoing the Oración Seis forced them to commit.
- Dreaming of Things to Come: He is plagued by nightmares of the chaos brought about by the Infinity Clock, which gradually drives him insane. It's later revealed to be a result of Lapointe's mind control.
- Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Has no known name other than his title.
- Miniature Senior Citizens: He's among the shorter characters in the series, and quite old.
- Sanity Slippage: Gradually turns from a Reasonable Authority Figure into a cackling madman. He thankfully returns to normal once Wendy works her magic on him.

The cardinal of Zentopia. He bears a striking resemblance to Oración Seis' master, Zero, and is a secret ally of the dark guild who gains control of Zentopia by brainwashing the current Archbishop in his sleep.
- Artificial Human: He is a puppet created through some of Zero's hair by Midnight.
- Big Bad Wannabe: He thinks he's capable of being the real villain, but he's not as smart or powerful as he thinks he is, and turns out to be an Unwitting Pawn to Midnight.
- Casting a Shadow: Has the same dark powers as Zero.
- Deceptive Disciple: He pretends to be subservient to the Archbishop when he really just wants his position.
- Evil Chancellor: After he makes the Archbishop his puppet, he becomes this to Zentopia.
- Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He wears Stoic Spectacles that serve to enhance
- Identical Stranger: Looks like Zero with shorter hair and Brain's eyes. Justified since he is a clone of him.
- The Man Behind the Man: He brainwashes the Archbishop, which in turn gives him leverage over Legion. Brain II (Midnight) is the man behind him, though.
- No Body Left Behind: He fades away shortly after being pummeled by Gildarts, leaving nothing but the lock of Zero's hair he was made from.
- Obviously Evil: Even if he didn't clearly resemble Zero, his grim expression and evil smile should be enough of an indicator.
- Psychotic Smirk: He flashes these now and again to remind us of how evil he is.
- Spell My Name with an "S": The Crunchyroll sub goes for the hilariously literal translation of "Cardinal Rapowant".
- Tomato Surprise: He never knew that he was a puppet created by Midnight to control Zentopia.
Legion PlatoonA cult of warriors loyal to the Zentopia Church, mostly comprised of the Earth-land versions of Edolas's royal military commanders. They embark on a journey to gather the Infinity Clock parts and keep them from falling into the wrong hands.
- Anti-Villain: None of them are actually evil, and their goal to keep the Infinity Clock parts out of the wrong hands is noble, but they're ruthless in doing so and they follow the orders of the Archbishop without question, unaware that he's being manipulated by the Neo-Oración Seis.
- Back for the Finale: They're all seen in the Continuity Cavalcade lending their magic power to Lucy's Fairy Sphere against Acnologia.
- Badass Crew: They manage to deliver a crushing Curb-Stomp Battle to almost the entire guild in their first encounter.
- Good All Along: Fairy Tail thinks they're gathering the parts of the Infinity Clock for some nefarious purpose, and their hostile first encounter did them no favors. In reality, they think they're protecting the clock from falling into the wrong hands, and believe Fairy Tail doesn't know how to handle them properly.
- HeelFace Turn: They undergo a collective turn once they realize that the Neo-Oración Seis have been using them from the beginning.
- Knight Templar: When it comes to fulfilling their orders from Zentopia, especially ones from the Archbishop, they're willing to go to dangerous lengths to fulfill them, even if that means hurting others.
- Poor Communication Kills: They could have avoided resistance from Fairy Tail had they explained why they wanted the Infinity Clock parts instead of attacking and being hostile from the get-go.
- Unwitting Pawn: The Neo-Oración Seis use the Archbishop to manipulate them into gathering the clock parts for them.
- Walking the Earth: Their final mission is to once again recover the scattered pieces of the Infinity Clock. Since the parts have lost their magic power with which to be detected, the Legion say it will likely take their entire lives to find them.

The leader of the Legion Platoon, and the Earth-land counterpart of Byro. He is fiercely yet blindly loyal to the Archbishop, and punishes anyone who goes against Zentopia's teachings. He uses magic to negate all magical affects around him. He also keeps a giant octopus, Kanaloa, by his side.
- Always Someone Better: Despite managing to counter Gildarts' magic with his Anti-Magic and even managing to hold his own in physical combat for a time, Byro quickly finds himself being worn out against Gildarts' assault while his opponent is still raring to go. He even admits in disbelief that Gildarts is just too strong for him to beat.
- Anti-Magic: His magic creates a field around him that disperses any spell aimed at him and redirects it around him.
- Badass Baritone: He's got a deep voice, and anyone who can keep up with Fairy Tail's strongest wizard for any length of time is someone to watch out for.
- The Beastmaster: He has the total allegiance of the giant octopus Kanaloa.
- Berserk Button: Anyone who betrays Legion on his watch must suffer the consequences.
- Big Damn Heroes: Intervenes when Lapointe takes Laki hostage in a attempt to force Natsu and Gildarts to fight each other, with the goal of making the cardinal pay for taking advantage of everyone. This still doesn't stop him from being willing to clash with Fairy Tail on the question of saving Lucy's life, however.
- Blind Obedience: Even when he has personal doubts of his mission, he presses on without question because it is what the Archbishop wills of him. He even believes he must adhere to every command of those who hold the Archbishop's seal, including his enemies from the Neo-Oración Seis.
- Disc-One Final Boss: He's set up as the main threat of the Key of the Starry Heavens arc until the Neo-Oración Seis enter the scene.
- Good Is Not Nice: He is perhaps the biggest Knight Templar out of all the Legionnaires, and an unrelenting Jerkass, but nevertheless acts under the belief that he is preventing the world's destruction.
- Lawful Stupid: Even after his Heel Realization, he sees Fairy Tail as his enemy until the Archbishop orders him to stop.
- Old Soldier: The oldest member of the Legion Platoon by far, yet also their leader and best fighter.
- One-Man Army: He claims to have been trained to take on at least 50 men at once, and can even trade physical blows with Gildarts for a time.
- Perpetual Frowner: Nearly every scene he's in has him frowning, and his subordinates actually note it's creepy when he does smile.
- Right-Hand Attack Dog: He has a giant octopus named Kanaloa.
- Shaping Your Attacks: His Divine Arrow attack which, as the name suggests, is an arrow-shaped wave.
- Simple Staff: Wields a white staff adorned with a crescent, which he can use to nullify magic.
- Size Shifter: Kanaloa can turn from giant proportions to small enough to fit in his hand.
- The Stoic: He carries out all of his orders with a stony-faced resolve. It only breaks apart when Fairy Tail and Coco call him out for his actions one time too many.
- The Unsmile: Tries smiling for the first time before seeing Fairy Tail off, but it takes him a great deal of effort, and the other Legionnaires joke about how creepy they think it looks.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Even when he discovers that he and his fellow Platoon members have been manipulated by Lapointe, he decides that the only way to destroy the Infinity Clock is to kill Lucy. It takes the Archbishop himself telling him to stand down to finally stop and focus his efforts on stopping the Clock itself.

The spearman of the Legion Platoon. He has a tendency to fall madly in love with women who suit his ever-changing fancy. He wields the magic spear Habaraki, which allows him to change the size of anything, and the magic shield Ricochet, which deflects anything that touches it.
- Abhorrent Admirer: He drives Lucy and numerous other girls up the wall with his utter obsession with them.
- Attack Reflector: His Ricochet shield can deflect anything, be they magical or physical attacks.
- Casanova Wannabe: He's convinced himself that all the girls who left him only did so because they found themselves unworthy of his masculine charms. Everyone else, however, can see that they just wanted to get away from him.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He's a totally love-obsessed twit who drools over Lucy whenever she's in his line of sight. He's also a total badass who manages to get the drop on One-Woman Army Erza in their first confrontation.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Subverted. His parents were involved in a civil war, though it ended in half a day with no casualties; he later lost his First Love (who greatly resembled Lucy) in another war, only to find her the next day completely fine (she still dumped him, though).
- Distracted by the Sexy: Seeing Lucy in a bridal veil and bikini distracts him long enough for Natsu to knock him out. To add insult to injury, Happy bawls over this being the first time Lucy's sex appeal has actually worked on anyone.
- Graceful Loser: After getting defeated by Natsu, he quickly recovers, but acknowledges his defeat and stops antagonizing them.
- Hot-Blooded: He spends every waking moment of his life burning with passion.
- Knight in Shining Armor: He fails at the "wooing ladies" part, however.
- Knightly Lance: His weapon, Habaraki.
- Large Ham: He shows absolutely zero subtlety in his attempts to pick up Lucy.
- Love at First Sight: Goes absolutely nuts over any woman who attracts his attention, which leads to his downfall.
- Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: He carries a shield as huge as he is, and it's useful for deflecting magic spells.
- Really Gets Around: Lucy is only the latest of his flings. Then Angel comes along, and he shifts gears entirely.
- Size Shifter: His Habaraki spear allows him to change the size of anyone and anything it touches.
- Spear Counterpart: He's basically a replacement for Erza Knightwalker, since Earth-land's Erza is already part of Fairy Tail. He likewise has a similar design, uses magic weaponry and has an opposite personality (Knightwalker is strict and no-nonsense; this guy is anything but).
Voiced by: Shiori Izawa (Japanese), Heather Walker (English)
The female Earth-land counterpart of Hughes. She wields a hand-shaped wand that grants her complete physical control over any single person.

- Berserk Button: She hates being called a puppet, since she was treated like one by everyone in her life.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Gives the Strauss siblings one after Mary Hughes takes control of Satan Soul away from Mirajane. However, when Mirajane switches to her Halphas form, Mary Hughes finds herself on the receiving end of this even after merging with Satan Soul itself.
- Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Her Second Movement, which allows her to extract magic from her target, and Third Movement, which makes her merge with her target.
- Dark Action Girl: While not necessarily a physical threat on her own, she becomes one after taking Mirajane's Satan Soul form for herself.
- Distaff Counterpart: She is a female version of Hughes from Edolas.
- Freudian Excuse: She was used by others throughout her entire life before joining Zentopia, so she took to practicing magic to control others as a way to get back at them.

- Heel Realization: She begins to question Zentopia's motivations after Coco is arrested and replaced with Gutman. Her feelings become even stronger when she is ordered to attack a church.

Earth-land Sugar Boy
Voiced by: Yoshimitsu Shimoyama (Japanese), Duncan Brannan (English)
The Earth-land counterpart of Sugar Boy, who looks and behaves like a 70s rock star. He carries a stand mic that allows him to summon giant globs of mucus that absorb magic.
- Badass Gay: He has a romantic attraction for Gray, and is very troublesome for Fairy Tail.
- Blob Monster: He has the power to summon massive blobs of phlegm that have minds of their own and paralyze anyone they "eat". He refers to them as his "dogs".

- Curb-Stomp Battle: He shows up to interrupt the fight between Erza and Cobra, not having gotten the memo that the Legion isn't allied with the Neo-Oración Seis anymore and attacks Erza. Cobra, not pleased to have him interrupting the fight, takes him out with a single mighty blast of his Sound Magic.
- Depraved Homosexual: He gets far too interested in Natsu after tasting his magic. The same goes for Gray later on.
Voiced by: Rie Murakawa (Japanese), Felecia Angelle (English)
The Earth-land counterpart of Coco, a spirited and bratty young girl. She wears magic shoes that grant her the power to run at great speeds and along walls.
- Bratty Half-Pint: She takes great offense to Macao's comment that he Wouldn't Hurt a Child when she fights him.
- Clothes Make the Superman: Uses her magic in a combination with magic sandals. Said magic was supposed to be outlawed as the magic proved too strong without harm to the user.
- Dark Action Girl: She partakes in the Curb-Stomp Battle against Fairy Tail to great effect. She later grows out of the "dark" part by the end of the arc.
- Fragile Speedster: Her powers make her fast and give some strength to her kicks, but she can easily be smacked down by strong attacks.
- Fire-Forged Friends: She and Lucy begin to hit it off while stuck together in the catacombs containing one of the Infinity Clock parts.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's rude to everyone unlike her much sweeter Edolas counterpart, but Lucy suspects that both Coco's are the same at heart deep down. This later proves true when Coco saves Fairy Tail from Byro's Divine Arrow.
- Kick Chick: Since most of her power comes from her shoes, she has to rely solely on kick-based attacks.
- Kick the Dog: She pointedly tells Lily that she hates cats, which hits poor Lily hard since he and Edo-Coco were so close. However, she later admits she lied and apologizes to him after all is said and done.
- Running Gag: She always gives scores to herself and others whenever they do any acrobatic moves.
- Super Speed: Her Free Run spell lets she can even run up cliffs and along walls.
- Took a Level in Kindness: Starts out as a standoffish Jerkass, but after she and Lucy help each other in the catacombs, she begins to realize that she wants to dedicate herself to helping others.
- Wall Crawl: Her magic allows her to run up cliffs and walls.

- Defeat Means Friendship: After Lily kicks his ass a few times, he starts to build a rapport with him.
- Do Not Call Me "Paul": He hates it when Panther Lily calls him "Sammy", even though Lily did it to retaliate against being called "Nii-san".
- Evil Counterpart: He is essentially Panther Lily's counterpart in the Platoon, since Lily was a commander of the Edolas Royal Military himself. However, he grows out of being evil.
- Friendly Rivalry: His rivalry with Lily becomes much more amicable following his HeelFace Turn.
- Genius Bruiser: Not only is he the team strategist, he has a battle form and packs a mean punch.
- Insufferable Genius: He's come up with every strategy resulting in his team's victories over Fairy Tail, and he acts like a complete know-it-all because of it.
- Size Shifter: Just like Liky, Samuel can change shape into a larger, humanoid form.
- Terms of Endangerment: Calls Panther Lily "Nii-san" (Big Brother) due to their age difference. Rather than being a respectful honorific as it usually is in Japan, he uses it just to get on Lily's nerves. Conversely, Lily calls him "Sammy", which he hates just as much.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: After overhearing that Lucy must be killed to stop the Infinity Clock, he rushes to do just that. Luckily, Coco manages to talk him down.

A monstrous prisoner from Zentopia's Forbidden Cell, brought in to join the Legion Platoon after Coco's betrayal. He uses Rupture Magic to make any target's magic power swell and explode.
- Cartoon Creature: He seems to be some kind of blocky, anthropomorphic giraffe.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Tries to use his magic just as Juvia uses her Water Lock on him, getting caught in the blast but damaging him as well. This gives Gajeel the opening he needs to take him out.
- Jerkass: He treats all the other Legion Platoon members as children. He also doesn't hesitate to attack Mary Hughes because she questions the orders given to them.
- Person of Mass Destruction: He uses Rupture magic, which allows him to make magic power, well, rupture.

- Red Baron: He's known as "Gutman the Cleaner" because his magic can literally clear out a room.

- De-Power: She loses her celestial magic when Mest takes the brunt of Racer's Anti-Link, which otherwise would've turned her into a motionless chrysalis for 100 years.

A Nikora spirit owned by Katja.
One of the Balam Alliance's dark guilds, reborn after the Time Skip. Midnight returns with the new moniker of "Brain II" alongside Cobra, Racer, Angel, with three new additions: Grim Reaper (Erigor), Jackpot (Kurodoa), and Imitatia. They aim to control the Infinity Clock and plunge the world into a state of chaos known as Real Nightmare, and manipulate Fairy Tail and the Legion Platoon to carry out their plans.
- Power at a Price: Midnight, Cobra, Racer, Angel, and Erigor had to sacrifice something to achieve greater powers: Midnight gave up the "future" where he would be happily reunited with his father Brain for similar darkness magic; Cobra gave up his right eye to improve his hearing; Racer gave up his heart (i.e., his humanity) to achieve great speed; Angel sacrificed her lifespan to summon angels; and Erigor gave up his memories to control the weather. It's not certain what the others needed to sacrifice.
- Same Character, but Different: The four returning members—Midnight, Cobra, Racer, and Angel—are quite different from their manga personalities: Midnight, a quiet yet deadly Sleepyhead, is now a boastful Evil Genius and The Leader of the guild named Brain II due to desiring to fill his "father" Brain's shoes; Cobra, a literal Smug Snake, is more stony-faced due to losing Cubellios; Racer, a Hot-Blooded speed fanatic, has gone completely Ax-Crazy due to sacrificing his "heart"; and Angel, a bratty Jerkass, is serene yet also somewhat totally insane due to life-sacrificing magic.
Imitatia, a.k.a. Michelle Lobster
Voiced by: Yukana (Japanese), Tabitha Ray (English)
A young woman who claims to be a distant relative of the Heartfilia family, viewing Lucy as an older sister. In reality, she is the Neo-Oración Seis' second-in-command, who was brought to life from a long-forgotten doll named "Gonzalez" that belonged to Lucy before her mother's death.
- Alas, Poor Villain: Despite Imitatia's deception, her former friends are consumed with sorrow and rage when she is turned back into a lifeless doll by Midnight, who has the nerve to trample over her.
- Anti-Villain: Michelle was so driven by loneliness that her deepest wish was to have the good times she spent with Lucy back. Sadly, it was not meant to last.
- Artificial Human: Thanks to Midnight, she was able to come to life instead of having to remain waiting for Lucy to find her again. Unfortunately, in order to stay alive, she became a member of the Oración Seis and had to do what Midnight ordered her to do.
- Bare Your Midriff: When she reveals her true intentions, her new outfit consists of showing more skin as opposed to what she once wore.
- Being Evil Sucks: She hates having to manipulate Lucy, but believes that as long as she can be with her in the end, it's all worth it.
- Big Eater: She has an enormous appetite and will eat anything she considers remotely appetizing.
- Cerebus Retcon: Inverted. Her true form is later shown to be a Darker and Edgier variant of a flower dress Lucy made for her.
- Childhood Friend: She says Lucy used to play with her a lot as a kid and even made her dresses out of paper and flowers. Lucy, however, has trouble remembering any of this. It turns out that she was literally played with as a doll.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: Toward Lucy, as her true wish was to keep her big sister for herself, without Natsu or the rest of her guildmates in the way.
- Cool Sword: She carries a jagged sword with her.
- Cute Clumsy Girl: What she pretended to be as Michelle Lobster. In reality, she's anything but.
- Dark Action Girl: She's strong and skilled enough in combat to keep up with Natsu, Elfman, and Romeo at once.
- Dead Person Impersonation: Downplayed. She takes her name and part of her backstory of a comatose but still-living woman unrelated to the Heartfilia family.
- Deadly Disc: She can use her shield as a saw blade on a cable.
- The Dragon: She is the most dangerous member of the guild next to Midnignt, the current leader.
- Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: When she assumes her true form, her eyes become dull and lifeless. Natsu points this out, stating that the villains he fought in the past had a certain brightness in their eyes when they fought for what they believed in, which he sees as proof that part of her doesn't really want to do this. By the time of her HeelFace Turn, her eyes regain their original sparkle.
- Entitled to Have You: Once Lucy has been kidnapped, Imitatia goes on all the way up until her HeelFace Turn that Lucy belongs to her, and that no one else can have her.
- Evil Costume Switch: She switches out her pink, frilly dress for a sinister, thorny costume once she shows her true colors.
- Extreme Omnivore: Thinks Sugar Boy's goo looks tasty, and considers eating Byro's octopus Kanaloa.
- Eyepatch of Power: She wears one in her true form.
- Family Theme Naming: While she's only pretending to be Lucy's relative, the name Michelle is shared with a Beatles' song, just like most of the Heartfilia family.

- Flower Motifs: As Imitatia, she wears a rose in her hairwears a leafy dress after revealing herself as Imitatia.

- I Just Want to Be Loved: Lucy stopped playing with her after her mother died. Being turned into a human by Midnight allows her to re-experience being Lucy's "sister" for real.
- Inelegant Blubbering: Snot tends to dribble from her nose whenever she cries.
- Intergenerational Friendship: She is an Artificial Human at least one month old with the appearance of a 20-something-year-old who forms a strong, sisterly bond with Lucy, a chronologically 24-year-old girl who is physically 17.
- It's All My Fault: Subverted. She blames herself for delivering Lucy the Infinity Clock hand, which set in motion the events leading to the clock's completion. However, she later reveals this to have been part of her plan.
- Living Toys: She's actually a doll that Lucy played with all the time when she was a child and called her "little sister" in her own fantasies, given life by Midnight's magic to serve in the Neo-Oración Seis.
- Long-Lost Relative: She claims to be a distant cousin of Lucy's, whom she calls her "big sister". This is later revealed to be a lie; the actual Michelle Lobster she impersonates has no relation to the Heartfilias.
- Love Makes You Evil: It was her desire to be with Lucy again that drove her to agree with becoming a member of the Neo-Oración Seis and do anything to have her wish come true.
- Love Redeems: After realizing her mistake, she tries to rescue Lucy from merging with the Infinity Clock. Even in "death", her voice reaches Lucy (who's already merged with said clock) and proves emotional support.
- Magical Eyes: Her left eye transforms into the symbol of the Oración Seis.
- Metaphorically True: She really is Lucy's sister, albeit a make-believe one from Lucy's childhood fantasies.
- The Mole: She infiltrates Fairy Tail to trick them into assembling the Infinity Clock, and then spreads word about their mission to raise interest in the clock and ensure all the parts are found.
- Murder the Hypotenuse: She attempts to murder Natsu and the rest of Fairy Tail so she can keep Lucy all to herself.
- My God, What Have I Done?: She helps capture Lucy and merge her with the Infinity Clock, believing that she'll be able to have Lucy all to herself after that. But when Midnight tells her that Lucy will be Retgoned from existence once the merger is complete, Imitatia is horrified and almost immediately tries to fix what she's done.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: While her affection for Lucy was genuine, she intentionally played up the persona of an emotional, non-combative rich lady to drop everyone's guard.
- Ocular Gushers: Her tears always come out as huge fountains.
- Orphan's Ordeal: She was once part of a wealthy plantation family that died in a "terrible ordeal", leaving her as the only survivor. Because she has nowhere else to go after giving Lucy her father's memento, Lucy takes her under her wing. It later turns out this part of her backstory is fabricated.
- Pimped-Out Dress: While incognito as Michelle, she wears a pink, frilly dress that is reminiscent of a doll, which she later turns out to be.
- Pressure Point: Her magic, Cilice, produces a vine that wraps around her targets and attacks their weak points all at once.
- Redemption Equals Death: Imitatia's desperate attempt to save Lucy from the Infinity Clock after helping her fuse with it results in Midnight turning her back into a lifeless doll.
- Tears of Remorse: Happens twice: first before she reveals her true colors, and again when she tries to save Lucy from the Infinity Clock upon learning her actions will wipe out all memory of Lucy's existence.
- That Woman Is Dead: After she reveals herself to be an Oración Seis member, she completely dismisses the name "Michelle" (which wasn't her real name to begin with), despite Lucy and her friends still continuing to call her that.
- Tragic Bromance: While she and Lucy were never biologically sisters, they clearly saw each other as such. Too bad due to how things worked out, Michelle "dies" and Lucy is left to carry with her doll of Michelle, neither of them to speak to with each other again. Even after her betrayal, Lucy still misses having Michelle by her side.
- Tragic Dream: After spending so many years alone, she wanted to have the good times she used to have with Lucy back again. Sadly, the fact that Midnight turned her into a minion of evil guaranteed it wasn't meant to last.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Played straight, but not in the way she acted. She fully knew delivering the Infinity Clock hand to Lucy would help bring about the end of the world, but she didn't know that awakening the Infinity Clock's power would require essentially erasing Lucy from existence.
- Unwitting Pawn: She was played by Midnight into bringing together the Infinity Clock and delivering Lucy so it can be activated.
- Walking Spoiler: There's more to this character than meets the eye.
- Was It All a Lie?: She is asked this in verbatim by Natsu once "Michelle" reveals herself to be an enemy. In reality, not all of it was a lie. Also, she really did receive the Infinity Clock hand from Jude, who really did intend to give it to Lucy for safekeeping.
- Whip It Good: She can summon her vines to whip her targets, and she can connect them to her shield to create an impromptu saw.
- Yandere: A platonic-family kind of love, but refuses to share Lucy with anyone else as she claims that she belongs to her.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Once she tries to rescue Lucy from the Infinity Clock, Midnight promptly reverts Imitatia back to her doll form.

A member of the Neo-Oración Seis, a strange figure in a bear costume with a built-in slot machine that casts random spells on random targets. He is later revealed as an alter ego of Brain's staff, Kurodoa.
- Bears Are Bad News: He wears a bear costume, and is also a member of one of the most dangerous dark guilds in the kingdom.
- Beware the Silly Ones: He may look and act ridiculous, but he is infamous in Fiore for burning down churches.
- Humongous Mecha: In the Fairy Tail x Rave Master Crossover OVA, Jackpot is shown to be upgraded to a giant robot, once again piloted by Kurodoa.
- Informed Flaw: It's said that his attacks are unpredictable, meaning they could just as likely hit him as they would anyone else. However, he is only seen getting hit by his own attack in the scene his magic is introduced; every other time that follows, he always hits his intended target.
- Laughably Evil: He's pretty much a joke compared to the rest of the guild.
- Laughing Mad: He is first seen letting out an unsettling laugh as a church burns down around him.
- Mook Maker: In his OVA appearance, he can make army of them via coins.
- Obfuscating Insanity: Jackpot appears to be a totally insane, cackling lunatic. However, Kurodoa is not nearly that crazy and drops the act once he discards his disguise.
- The Sixth Ranger: It turns out "Jackpot" is just a decoy to hide the true sixth member of the guild, Imitatia (a.k.a. Michelle).
- Superpower Lottery: Literally. His Slot Magic attacks are completely random, which supposedly include their targets, but are more often than not shown to work in his favor.
A team of defectors from Eisenwald. They consist of a sand wizard, a giant chicken-like man, a pair of sai-wielding twins, and a fortune teller.
- All There in the Script: The credits reveal the name of the impish-looking sand wizard to be Snarl, but no one else's.
- Cannon Fodder: They're so weak, Gray takes the bulk of them down without using any magic.
- Defeat Means Friendship: After they've been beaten by Fairy Tail, the giant chicken is seen among Fairy Tail's "fan club" in their play's audience.
- Dishing Out Dirt: The team's leader, Snarl, is able to trap Natsu in a giant ball of sand, though not for long.
- Fortune Teller: One of their members is this, complete with a Crystal Ball. He's no fake either, as he forsees that Gray will have "trouble with water and women" in his future, a not-so-subtle allusion to his fated encounter with Juvia.
- Playing with Fire: The Eisenwald chicken tries roasting Happy with a magic flaming staff.
- Resignations Not Accepted: They tried leaving Eisenwald because they wanted no part in their plans for Lullaby. It's not long before they're rounded up by Kageyama and punished.
- Tag Team Twins: The twins fight and are taken out in tandem.
Bozu and Sue
Bozu voiced by: Hiroki Goto (Japanese), Dave Cain (English)
Sue voiced by: Kyoko Namekawa (Japanese), Kia Fulton (English)
Two members of Phantom Lord who act as Gajeel's lackeys. Bozu uses Sound Magic to produce deafening sounds, while Sue uses Mirror Magic to deflect others' attacks.
- Ambiguously Brown: Bozu looks to be of African descent, and Sue might be Indian as she has a small, green oval-shaped jewel similar to a Bindi in the center of her forehead, which is usually seen in Indian Hindu culture.
- Attack Reflector: Sue's mirror magic absorbs others' spells and throws it right back at them.
- Back for the Finale: They're seen in the Continuity Cavalcade of wizards lending their magic power to Lucy's Fairy Sphere against Acnologia.
- Bald of Evil: Bozu has a totally shaved dome for a head.
- Butt-Monkey: Gajeel threatens to blame them in case of Lucy's death. They also get caught in Gajeel and Natsu's attacks and are flung around like pinballs.
- Continuity Cameo: They appear briefly alongside Bora in the anime's Fantasia parade sequence. Bozu later makes a quick appearance alongside Bora during the final battle of the Grand Magic Games arc.
- Cool Shades: Bozu has purple shades, with one of its lenses getting broken early in the war between Fairy Tail and Phantom Lord, and never getting fixed.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Together they dominate Reedus and Loke (who was already weak due to his prolonged exile in the human world) while looking for Lucy. In an extra little Kick the Dog moment, Sue traps Loke in a cage of mirrors so he can get a good look at how badly they beat him.
- Defeat Means Friendship: They befriend Fairy Tail after getting beaten in the guild war, mostly because they were impressed when Natsu beat Gajeel.
- The Ditz: Sue thinks Happy is a red dog. Considering her magic involves mirrors, however, it makes sense that she'd think in opposites.
- Karma Houdini: Unless you consider the Butt-Monkey entry above, and the fact that their guild gets disbanded, they don't suffer much retribution for the Curb-Stomp Battle they give Reedus and Loke.
- Musical Assassin: Bozu's magic is based on sound. His attacks utilize various levels of sound intensity (visually shown as a swarm of musical notes), which can either stun his opponent or knock them unconscious.
- Nice Hat: Sue wears a standard-issue Phantom Lord hat resembling a jester's cap.
- Pretty in Mink: Bozu has a furred collar on his jacket.
- Sleeves Are for Wimps: Sue wears a sleeveless shirt and is a fairly adept wizard.
- Those Two Bad Guys: Apart from thrashing some of Fairy Tail's weaker members, they provide commentary throughout the Phantom Lord arc.
- Tsundere: Sue, for Happy, of all people.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Sue has green hair.

A wizard who is hellbent on making an artificial dragon powered by Natsu's magic. Her Concealment Magic grants her the ability to trap others inside pocket dimensions. She also commands an army of Lizardmen, golems designed to mimic all the wizards in Magnolia.
- Accent Adaptation: In the English dub, she speaks with a Southern twang; it's fake, though, and she drops it when she decides to get serious. In the Animax dub, she instead gets a cockney accent.
- All of the Other Reindeer: Everyone laughed at her when she said she saw a dragon as a child, kicking off her descent into madness and villainy.
- Back for the Finale: She's seen in the Continuity Cavalcade of wizards who lend their magic power to Lucy's Fairy Sphere against Acnologia.
- Bad Boss: Whenever her Lizardmen are destroyed, she shrugs it off and makes more. Also present when she ordered her artificial dragon hatchlings to devour one another for "failing" to detect the villagers she made vanish.
- Continuity Cameo: She is very briefly seen in episode 114 inside a prison cell. The end of the 2014 anime also shows her among the callbacks of the previous stories.
- Cute and Psycho: Constantly switches between cheerful with a high-pitched voice to sinister with a deep, creepy voice.
- Deer in the Headlights: Right before Natsu knocks her out, she sees the image of Igneel behind him, which brings her to tears at seeing a dragon again.
- Disproportionate Retribution: She used the people in her own hometown as test subjects for her experimental baby Dragonoids, and tampered with the invisibility spell they used to hide from them to make them invisible for all time, all because they called her crazy when she said she saw a dragon.
- Ditto Fighter: Her Lizardmen mimic the abilities of any wizard they face, turning their battles into Mirror Matches.
- Evil Is Petty: She uses her own hometown as a test subject for her deranged experiments because no one believed her claims about seeing a dragon when she was a kid; has her artificial spawn eat themselves for merely malfunctioning; and attempts to eventually destroy not just Magnolia, but all of Ishgal with her Dragonoid. Seriously, that's petty.
- Filler Villain: She serves as the villain of the aptly named Daphne arc exclusive to the anime.
- Four Eyes, Zero Soul: She has big, round glasses that inevitably become Scary Shiny Glasses when talking about her plans for revenge.
- Freudian Excuse: She claims to have seen a dragon as a child, but no one in her hometown believed her. When the dragon never came back, she decided to make one instead.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Her plan to power her Dragonoid using Dragon Slayer Magic wasn't bad... except she used Natsu, one of the most Hot-Blooded people around.
- Hot Scientist: For a Mad Scientist, she still looks incredibly attractive.
- Lack of Empathy: She'll achieve her goal by any means necessary and doesn't care who she has to use or hurt in the process.
- Mad Scientist: Of the Magitek variety. Her ultimate goal it to make an artificial dragon of her own, though it ends up corrupted in her pursuit to the point she wishes to use it to take over Fiore.
- Motor Mouth: She has a serious case of it when selling her "Metamo-chan". The English dub turns it Up to Eleven.
- Nice Hat: Wears a big, white, "Boss of the Plains" hat decorated with hot pink buttons. The hat itself sports an intriguing design; rather than a normal crown, the crown of the hat is shaped rather similar to a cat's ears.
- Non-Action Big Bad: She's not a physical fighter in the slightest, instead relying solely on her Lizardmen for their brute force and controlling her Dragonoid through her console. When face to face with an angry Natsu, she can do nothing but shrink back helplessly.
- Older Than They Look: It's subtle, but during a flashback showing Natsu as a kid, she looks exactly the same as she does in the present. Perhaps those dietary snacks of hers aren't completely bogus after all...
- Snake Oil Salesman: In addition to being a wizard and mad scientist, she's also a con artist who sells bogus diet food products.
- Stupid Evil: Despite being a scientist and making a highly dangerous artificial dragon, she still has some obvious stupidity, thinking she was good enough to harness Natsu's power for her own selfish desires. Makarov refers to her as a fool for thinking that she could recreate an actual dragon, and Natsu calls her a shame to Igneel's legacy before one-shotting her.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Her self-made Metamo-chan, which is a sausage-looking thing on a stick.
- Verbal Tic: "Hai, hai!" (Yes, yes!)
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: No one ever gave her a second glance after she tried telling everyone that she really saw a dragon. Even Natsu can't help but feel sorry for her since no one believed he was raised by a dragon. He still doesn't take that as excuse for shaming Igneel's legacy with her fake dragon, though.

The Edolas counterpart of Gajeel Redfox. He is a freelance reporter with a bad reputation for his controversial articles about the Edolas Kingdom. He's also Fairy Tail's trusted informant, keeping the guild up to date with what's going on in the kingdom.
- Guile Hero: He's a charmer with various connections in Edolas, which he uses to great effect while helping his Earth-land counterpart get around.
- Intrepid Reporter: He willingly risks his public reputation if it means spreading the truth about the kingdom's wrongdoings.
- Nice Hat: He wears a dark blue fedora hat with a metal studded band.
- Non-Action Guy: Unlike Earth-land Gajeel, this Gajeel is not a fighter. Despite this, he's still a useful ally for Fairy Tail.
- Opposites Attract: He's well-dressed and informative, while Earth-land Gajeel is violent and bad tempered. Humorously, both Gajeels see each other as what they perceive themselves to be like, and thus get along perfectly.
- Sharp-Dressed Man: His snazzy suit gives him an air of style that his Earth-land counterpart believes he has himself.

The head of the prestigious Balsamico family. He hires Fairy Tail to deal with the scoundrel Velveno.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He's polite and reasonable enough towards Fairy Tail, but it turns out he's the one who drove Velveno to become a thief, and he denies the guild their reward when Velveno proposes to his daughter.
- Eyes Always Closed: His eyes look clenched shut, reminiscent of a sour face.
- Family Theme Naming: His name comes from "balsamic vinegar".
- Gag Lips: He has puckered lips that uphold his "sour face" look.
- Miniature Senior Citizens: He's tiny enough to fit in his own daughter's lap.
- Overprotective Dad: He refused to let his daughter fraternize with Velveno, one of the family's servants, and chased him away without her knowing. Aceto is none too pleased with her father when Velveno tells her his side of the story.

Count Balsamico's widely coveted daughter.
- Back for the Finale: She's seen in the Continuity Cavalcade of wizards who lend their magic power to Lucy's Fairy Sphere against Acnologia.
- Calling the Old Man Out: She isn't happy with her father when she finds out he chased Velveno away to keep him from falling for her.
- Childhood Friend Romance: She was once close with Velveno while he served her family. Years later, she happily accepts his proposal after learning why he left her.
- Hime Cut: Her hairstyle is fitting for the heiress of one of a wealthy family.
- I Will Wait for You: She promises to marry Velveno after he serves time in prison for his crimes. She is later shown happily together with him in the penultimate episode.
- Ojou: She's a very well-mannered aristocrat.
- Meaningful Name: "Aceto" is the Italian word for "vinegar".
- Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Played with. Aceto accepts the proposal of a wanted criminal, but only when he promises to clean up his act in exchange.
- The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Whereas the Count has a constantly puckered face, Aceto is quite a stunner.
- Uptown Girl: She and Velveno fell in love while he served at her mansion, but her father didn't approve it because of their social positions and drove Velveno out of the mansion.
Butt Jiggle Gang

"Lackey B" voiced by: Tetsu Inada (Japanese), Greg Silva (English)
A gang of ineffectual, leotard-wearing, "truly evil" thieves with abnormally large buttocks that cross paths with Fairy Tail from time to time. They originally debuted in Rave Master.
- Ass Kicks You: They can and will do practically anything with their butts, from performing dynamic poses to digging tunnels.
- Back for the Finale: They're seen in the Continuity Cavalcade of wizards who lend their magic power to Lucy's Fairy Sphere against Acnologia.
- The Cameo: They make brief appearances in the Fairy Tail x Rave OVA. Given that they originated from Rave Master, this is only natural.
- Card-Carrying Villain: They wear their status as "true scoundrels" as a badge like their bodysuits.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Played for Laughs; their boss turned to a life of "evil" after he accidentally stained a shirt and tried to hide it by covering the whole thing with ink.
- Didn't Think This Through: Their plan to steal a caboose full of gold away from the train is fairly well thought out, right up until they realize they have no clue how to transport the gold anywhere off the tracks without breaking their spines.
- Enemy Mine: Towards the end of the Key of the Starry Heavens arc, they team up with Natsu to bust out of prison.
- Fartillery: Their "Triple Gas Ecstasy" is a rocket-powered fart attack.
- Farts on Fire: By heating up their butts with friction, they can produce destructive flaming farts.
- Goldfish Poop Gang: Show up somewhat frequently in the Key of the Starry Heavens arc to cause trouble.
- Gonk: They have unpleasant designs to match their unpleasant powers.
- Harmless Villain: The most "evil" they successfully accomplish is making Erza's treasured hair flower wilt, and giving Carla night terrors about "forcing" Wendy to wear one of their bodysuits (even though Wendy chose it of her own will).
- HeelFace Door-Slam: With Wendy's persuasion, they consider giving up their lives of crime and joining Fairy Tail, but Natsu doesn't get the memo and blasts them away.
- No Name Given: Much like their Rave Master counterparts, these guys' names are never mentioned in the series; the leader is simply called "Boss" or "Aniki" (meaning "senior" or "big brother"), while his Fat and Skinny lackeys are called "Lackey A" and "Lackey B", respectively. Only their Rave Master character profiles reveal their names: Wonderful Gocche, Kalen Berg and Marco Belunjay.
- Leotard of Power: They wear matching, black skintight bodysuits. They also keep suits in Wendy's size.
- Reused Character Design: They're lifted straight from Hiro Mashima's earlier work Rave Master, right down to their Japanese voice actors from the anime.
- A Twinkle in the Sky: They exit every episode they appear in in such a manner.
