Lamia Scale is another prominent guild in Fiore. A handful of rogue wizards and defectors from this guild first appear on Galuna Island as Lyon's Quirky Miniboss Squad, but they later become one of Fairy Tail's greatest allies when they band together to stop the dark guild Oración Seis. They hold the honor of being the second-strongest guild in Fiore after the first Time Skip, but are knocked down to third by Fairy Tail.
- Badass Crew: They hold the title of the second strongest guild before most of Fairy Tail returns. In fact, compared to most of the other guilds, they do consistently well throughout the whole tournament.
- Defeat Means Friendship: Downplayed. Though most of their prominent members are reformed villains who are beaten by Fairy Tail in the Galuna Island arc, they're still pretty sore about it and reluctant to work with the ones who beat them. They do, however, become close allies with Fairy Tail in the end.
- Fire-Forged Friends: Their partnership with Fairy Tail is chilly at the start of the Nirvana arc, mainly because their guild's representatives understandably caused Lucy, Natsu and their friends grief on Galuna Island. After fighting the Oración Seis together, however, they become one of Fairy Tail's most invaluable allies.
- Friendly Rivalry: Along with Blue Pegasus, they're the best-sported guild opposing Fairy Tail in the Grand Magic Games.
- No Pronunciation Guide: The Japanese pronunciation of the guild is lah-me-ah with a short a sound instead of the proper English pronunciation, lay-me-uh with a long a and a short u sound.
- Snake People: The guild is named after the lamia, a monster in Greek mythology with the upper body of a woman and the lower body of a snake, which its emblem resembles; Lamia Scale's name written in kanji (Hebihime no Koke) means "Snake Princess's Scale".

The master of Lamia Scale. She's an old, crabby lady who tends to spin around and makes others spin around when she's particularly annoyed with them.
- Catchphrase: "I'll spin you!"
- Character Tic: She spins her hands around in a circular motion, and sometimes her whole body.
- Everyone Has Standards: Oh sure she wants to prove Lamia Scale's superiority, but when Sherria starts charging up her Finishing Move in the fight with an already-battered Wendy, Ohba shockingly demands to know if she's trying to kill her opponent with that move.
- Everything's Better with Spinning: Constantly makes spinning gestures with her hands or entire body, as well as making her hapless guild members spin around with her magic as punishment, or just to vent her frustrations.
- Fan Disservice: In the anime, she decides to crash the Grand Magic Games' swimsuit contest with her own entry. Chapati Lola puts the crowd's reaction best:Chapati: And with that crash course in reality, the mood in the arena has been brought down to Earth-land. Party's over, folks. The other teams in the arena have begun to clear out.
- Frontline General: She fights off Orochi's monster army alongside the rest of her guild.
- Never Mess with Granny: Her guild is careful not to get in her way when she's in a bad mood, or else they will be subject to torture by spinning, even if they haven't done anything wrong.
- Punny Name: Her name sounds similar to "ooba" and "baba-sama", which are both Japanese for "grandmother."
- Spell My Name with an "S": It's rendered as "Ohba Babasahma" in the Funimation dub.

Portrayed by: Ren Ozawa (stage)
Gray's former senior and rival who studied together with him under Ur's. He uses a special variety of Ice Make that can create living ice golems. First appearing before Fairy Tail as the villainous "Reitei"note , he is obsessed with achieving his lifelong dream of surpassing his teacher by resurrecting and defeating Deliora, whom Ur sacrificed herself for to seal away. After being thwarted by Gray and his friends, Lyon is convinced to join the Lamia Scale guild, where he rises among the ranks to become one of its ace members.
- All for Nothing: He spends ten long years toiling to move Deliora's frozen form to Galuna Island and gather enough followers to help resurrect the demon so he can destroy it himself. Unfortunately for him, he realizes that Ur already killed the demon.
- Ambition Is Evil: In the Galuna Island arc, he's already aspiring to revive Deliora and become one of Fiore's most powerful wizards ever.
- Anti-Villain: As Reitei, Lyon is willing to unleash a demon of insurmountable power just so he can kill it and prove himself as the world's strongest wizard. However, he also does it with the promise of avenging those who lost their families to that demon.
- Arch-Enemy: For Gray Fullbuster. Lyon hated him for accidentally causing Ur to sacrifice her life and wants to surpass the latter by resurrecting Deliora.
- Arc Villain: The main antagonist of the Galuna Island arc, where he leads a group of followers in a ceremony to revive a nigh unstoppable demon so he can kill it and boost his own ego, inadvertently causing the local islanders to suffer in the process.
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: At first, he thinks he's strong enough to kill the demon Ur only managed to seal away, and considers his Ice Make superior to Gray's due to his greater speed and ability in making living creatures instead of static objects. This all changes once he's beaten and his plans are foiled, forcing him to reevaluate his life.
- Awesome, but Impractical: Against Ur's instructions, Lyon took up performing Ice Make spells with a single hand, which he boasts is more effective than the traditional fist-in-palm stance Gray and Ur use. While this allows for faster casting, his creations prove to be more imbalanced and not as sturdy or powerful as Gray's spells, which becomes his undoing.
- Badass Cape: He wears a long white cape and is a competent Ice Make wizard who is willing to go toe-to-toe with Gray and his friends.
- Battle Strip: Much like Gray, he removes his clothes in battle, though only after his HeelFace Turn.
- Berserk Button: Mentioning that Deliora cannot be beaten is one way to tick him off.
- Cain and Abel: He and Gray are essentially adopted brothers under Ur, so their deadly rivalry in the Galuna Island arc counts as this. They manage to work things out in the end, however.
- Child Prodigy: He was able to perform a one-handed Ice Make as a child, a feat that is considered vert difficult even for skilled wizards. He even figured out how to use Iced Shell on his own, but Ur stopped him before he could ever use it.
- Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Like Gray and Ur, Lyon knows how to use Iced Shell, the forbidden spell that Ur used to turn herself into ice and freeze Deliora. However, Ur stopped him the one time he ever attempted to use it.
- Dub Name Change: His title "Reitei" (meaning "Sub-Zero Emperor") is translated as "Cold Emperor" in Funimation's dub.
- Evil Counterpart: To Gray, at first. While Gray managed to move on from Deliora (for the most part) per Ur's wishes and joined a guild, Lyon allowed himself to be consumed with hatred and bitterness at having his dream of surpassing Ur trampled upon. It's only after realizing just how futile his actions were in the end that he begins to follow Gray's example.
- Evil Former Friend: He and Gray were more or less friends as kids, but became bitter enemies after Gray accidentally brought about their teacher's death. After Lyon's HeelFace Turn, however, they manage to smooth things out.
- Fake Defector: He pretends to attack Gray while battling Racer to focus the enemy's attention on him so he can get Gray out of Racer's magic field and land a finishing blow. It fools even Sherry, his ally.
- HeelFace Turn: He begins as one of the series's first Arc Villains on Galuna Island. After getting defeated and giving another reason to live beyond his Evil Plan, he joins a guild and becomes one of Fairy Tail's allies.
- Heroic Sacrifice: When Racer attempts to take his enemies with him with explosives, Lyon pulls one of these to save Gray and Sherry. He manages to survive, though.
- Hopeless Suitor: He is this to Juvia, who is already in love with Gray. Most of his gestures towards Juvia only creeps her out.
- Humble Pie: He arrogantly thinks he has the makings of the world's greatest Ice Make wizard when he plans to kill Deliora, the one monster Ur seemingly never could. But when he's beaten by Gray and later discovers that Deliora was Dead All Along after years of being frozen by Ur, Lyon realizes just how far he has to go and decides to turn himself around.
- An Ice Person: Has the ability to create creatures out of his ice which move on their own.
- I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: He gives up his pursuit of Juvia after seeing her distraught over their collective vision of Gray's death from an alternate future as a side effect of Ultear's Last Ages spell.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Even though his attempts to revive Diodora were amoral at best, Lyon's ultimately a good person.
- Light Is Not Good: When he's first introduced in the Galuna Island arc, he's a straight-up villain who wears a white cape as part of his Reitei clothing.
- Love at First Sight: With Juvia of all people, forming a Love Triangle (or in Juvia's mind, a Love Dodecahedron) with Gray that the latter honestly wants no part of. He moves on after the Grand Magic Games, though, only to set his sights on Merudy in the war with the Alvarez Empire.
- Manly Tears: He openly cries as he shouts in vain for Sherria to come heal Gray after he gets shot straight through the head in the second Dragon King Festival.
- Master-Apprentice Chain: He served as Ur's apprentice during his childhood, at least until Ur froze the demon at the cost of losing her own body.
- Mr. Fanservice: Just as well-built as Gray, and almost as prone to taking his shirt off as him too.
- No Pronunciation Guide: His name is pronounced different ways in different languages and dubs: the Japanese version and Funimation's English adaptation use the French pronunciation "lee-ohn", while the Animax/Tagalog adaptation uses the English "lie-un" pronunciation.
- Pretty in Mink: The hood and cuffs of his outfit in the Nirvana arc are furred.
- Replacement Goldfish: He openly considered himself this for Ultear when he became her apprentice, which earned him a slap in the face.
- Smug Snake: His determination to prove himself as the world's strongest Ice Make wizard drives him into reviving Diodora so that he can kill it. He's knocked down a peg or two after being defeated by Gray and realizing his efforts were futile.
- Snowlems: His Living Ice Make technique grants him the power to create living ice animals that he can control remotely, including dragons, tigers, and gorillas.
- The Sociopath: Gray initially thinks Lyon is so gung-ho about melting Deliora's ice prison because he doesn't know that ice is actually Ur. Lyon later admits that he does know; that doesn't make her alive in his eyes. Gray is unamused by this revelation.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Funimation spells his last name as "Bastia".
- Took a Level in Badass: Following the first Time Skip, he's strong enough to fight against Kagura and hold his own against her (although she greatly holds back), and would have likely beaten Gray and Juvia in their two-on-one had it not been for Sherria being frozen with surprise.
- Took a Level in Kindness: After joining Lamia Scale, he loses most of his arrogance and sociopathic tendencies, and becomes much more friendly around Gray.
- Unwitting Pawn: He doesn't even realize that his own minion, Zalty, is actually a disguised Ultear who uses him to take control of Deliora for herself, until it's too late.
- We Used to Be Friends: He and Gray were friends when they were children, up until Ur's sacrifice drove Lyon into reviving the demon himself and become one of the most powerful Ice Make wizards. They did reconcile after realizing that his efforts in reviving Deliora were All for Nothing.
- White Hair, Black Heart: He has a blatant disregard for the lives of Galuna's villagers, despite his apparent disdain for bloodshed. This changes after his HeelFace Turn, however.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is a light tone of blue.
- You Should Have Died Instead: He thoroughly resents Gray for going after Deliora since it caused Ur to sacrifice herself in order to save him. Over time, though, he learns to cope with it.

Sherry's younger, clumsier cousin. A teenage prodigy, she is a Sky God Slayer with mastery over wind and healing magic. She becomes good friends with fellow sky wizard Wendy during the Grand Magic Games, later forming the "Sky Sisters" with her when Wendy joins Lamia Scale after Fairy Tail disbands.
- Blow You Away: She conjures black winds with her magic.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: To Lyon, to the point where she attacks Juvia for taking Lyon's love from her, bar the fact that Juvia is just as annoyed about his affections as Sherria is.
- Combat Medic: Her Sky Magic can be used to heal as well as attack using wind and air. Unlike Wendy's Dragon Slayer Magic, however, Sherria's God Slayer Magic can not only directly heal wounds and injuries, but she can also use her magic on herself to recover from devastating attacks. The catch is that she can't restore stamina like Wendy's magic does, allowing the two girls to fight evenly.
- Cute Clumsy Girl: She and Wendy trip and fall on their faces at the same time right before their match.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Her magic is colored black as is every other God Slayer's, but she's a very sweet girl.
- De-Power: As a result of Ultear unlocking her Third Origin to beat DiMaria, which essentially gives her all the magic power she will ever have, she uses up all her magic for good and becomes an ordinary girl. However, Mashima states that since no human is born able to use magic, she can very well relearn from the ground up, which she begins to do after a year of training.
- Defeat Means Friendship: Downplayed in that her and Wendy's match in the Grand Magic Games ends in a draw, but they become fast friends afterwards.
- Dissonant Serenity: Demonstrates an eerie calm during her match with Wendy. It's really just a Red Herring to make her appear to be the source of Zeref's power in the tournament arena.
- Don't You Dare Pity Me!: When Natsu and the others come to take her back to reform the disbanded Fairy Tail, Wendy decides to stay with Sherria so she won't feel lonely, since Sherry already left the guild. However, Sherria gently admonishes her for staying with her out of pity, and after assuring her she can take care of herself, encourages her to return with Fairy Tail.
- Feather Flechettes: Her ultimate attack, Swarm Cloud of Heaven, produces a flurry of black feathers from her arms that rend her opponent.
- Friendly Rival: She and Wendy start out as such while they're on opposing teams in the Grand Magic Games. After that, their rivalry all but disappears.
- Girlish Pigtails: They add to her overall cutesy look, making the reveal of her true power all the more jarring.
- A God I Am Not: She may be a God Slayer like Zancrow and Olga, but unlike those two, she never brags about it.
- Healing Factor: Her Sky God Slayer Magic is set apart from Wendy's magic with her ability to heal her own injuries.
- Heroic Sacrifice: A non-fatal version. In the Alvarez Empire arc, she and Wendy are given a choice between who will achieve their Third Origin at the permanent cost of their magical abilities. Rather than let Wendy's power go to waste when Fairy Tail's fight has only just begun, Sherria undergoes the process herself so that Wendy can tend to a mortally wounded Carla.
- Hopeless Suitor: She takes up Sherry's role as this to Lyon after her cousin becomes engaged to Ren from Blue Pegasus.
- Idol Singer: Acts as one alongside Wendy during Lamia Scale's Thanksgiving Festival.
- Kill the God: Her God Slayer Magic was developed for this very purpose. She is also the first and only God Slayer seen accomplishing just that, taking out DiMaria's Chronos God Soul form after getting beefed up by her Third Origin.
- Little Miss Badass: She's only a couple of years older than Wendy, but she's a very powerful fighter courtesy of her God Slayer Magic. It is asserted by Ohba that she was selected as one of the Grand Magic Games' main fighters over her older cousin, Sherry, because her pure raw magic power is far greater.
- Love Freak: She gets the same obsession with "love" from Sherry, though Sherria claims her "love" isn't nearly as strong as her cousin's.
- Lovely Angels: With Wendy after the latter joined Lamia Scale over the second Time Skip.
- Nice Girl: She is extremely friendly towards Wendy in their match, and even shows concern for her when Wendy appears to be struggling.
- Overnight Age-Up: Getting her Third Origin unlocked by Ultear temporarily ages her up from a teenager to a young adult, the point where her magic potential would reach its peak.
- Power at a Price: During the Alvarez Empire arc, she unlocks her Third Origin to reach her full magic potential and take down DiMaria, a Takeover wizard possessing the powers of a god. The catch is that once she uses up this power, she can never use that magic again, although she can (and does) relearn to use it in time.
- Red Herring: Jellal suspects her to be the source of Zeref's magic around the Grand Magic Games arena because she is a God Slayer whose Lost Magic is inherently tied to the Black Wizard. After the battle, it turns out the source is elsewhere.
- Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: Her obsession with love gives a bit of a romantic overtone to her relationship with Wendy, especially after the second Time Skip when the two form a team together.
- Rose-Haired Sweetie: She's friendly, cheerful, and a Love Freak just like her cousin.
- Shared Family Quirks: She gets her status as a Love Freak and Clingy Jealous Girl around Lyon from Sherry, though it's greatly downplayed by her own admission.
- Smash Sisters: She forms a team with Wendy known as the "Sky Sisters" after the second Time Skip, taking on all of Orochi's Fin together in the Fairy Tail Revival arc, and later DiMaria in the Alvarez Empire arc.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Her name is spelled as "Shelia Blendi" by Funimation.
- Teen Genius: At the ripe young age of 15, she's had the honor of skipping a grade in the magic academy and graduating at the top of her class, and receiving a highly advanced spellbook from Council chairman Grand Doma in recognition of her efforts (according to her profile). This book is the same she learned her God Slayer Magic from; the thing is, no one ever expected that she would actually be able to master it.
- Trying Not to Cry: As Wendy leaves Lamia Scale, Lyon gives her permission to cry now once Wendy won't be able to see it and feel guilty, but she holds back her tears because she also wants Fairy Tail rebuilt.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has reddish pink hair just like Sherry.
- Zettai Ryouiki: She always wears Grade B.

A young man with large eyebrows who uses his Wave Motion spell to produce magic-negating pulses from his hands. He leaves his guild to follow Lyon and take revenge against Deliora, but returns once he learns the error of his ways.
- Anime Hair: Has this kind of hair before he starts dressing in a more Eastern style.
- Anti-Magic: His Wave Motion instantly nullifies any magic it makes contact with. The only catch is that it is only effective against one type of magic at a time, so it's useless on groups of wizards with differing abilities.
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: He fancies himself an invincible wizard others could never hope to defeat since he can negate their powers.
- Bash Brothers: Fights alongside Toby in the Grand Magic Games, with Yûka nullifying their opponents' magic and Toby going in for the kill.
- Big Ol' Eyebrows: His defining features are his freakishly huge eyebrows. They get even longer after the Time Skip.
- Black Bead Eyes: In most of his post Time Skip manga appearances.
- Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: He's able to calm Toby most of the time.
- Must Make Amends: In the anime, he and Sherry come to the Galuna Island village one more time for "payback" after Lyon is defeated. After Erza takes them out, they reveal that their visit was so the villagers could get payback against themselves.
- Nice Hat: Wears one after the Time Skip.
- Reverse Arm-Fold: Has his arms in this position most of the time.
- Sphere of Power: He can create his Anti-Magic barrier as a bubble around himself.
- Took a Level in Badass: Happens over the Time Skip. To elaborate, he gets fourth place in the Chariot game, and manages to get a tie in a dual battle alongside Lyon against Millianna and Kagura. He even gets a point for Lamia Scale in the big battle before losing to Kagura.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His Anime Hair is this color.

A dimwitted man who dresses and behaves like a dog. He can grow his nails into the Mega Jellyfish Paralyzing Claws which, well, paralyze people. He accompanies Sherry and Yûka in taking revenge against Deliora with Lyon.
- Bash Brothers: Usually fights alongside Yûka, which works to Toby's advantage since he proves to be far more effective at taking out opponents once Yûka uses his Anti-Magic Waves on them.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Just to give an example of how dim this guy is, he spends three whole months looking for a sock that was hung around his neck the whole time.
- Dogs Are Dumb: Has a dog-themed appearance and is rather simple-minded.
- Dumb Muscle: Toby is rather dimwitted, and works best by assisting Yûka in taking down their foes.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Toby sometimes gets mad for no apparent reason.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Toby is the only guy who Natsu defeats without lifting a finger by tricking him into touching himself with his paralyzing claws.
- Motor Mouth: Daisuke Kishio voices him as this in the anime.
- No Indoor Voice: Prone to screaming, especially once he gets mad.
- The Paralyzer: His poison-tipped claws have this effect on his enemies.
- Sad Clown: As silly as he is, he too is still stinging from the loss of his family against Deliora.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Kodansha alternatively spells his surname as "Horhorta", while the English dub spells it as "Olorta".
- Verbal Tic: "Ooon!"
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Never wears a shirt, except for the Grand Magic Ball.
- Wolverine Claws: His magic lets him grow out his fingernails into sharp claws, which are coated in a poison that paralyzes opponents.

Portrayed by: Toshiya Kumano (stage)
The ace of Lamia Scale and a master earth wizard who has the power to create indestructible columns of solid rock from the earth. Originally considered to be the weakest of the Ten Wizard Saints despite his massive strength, he rises up the ranks to become the strongest behind the Four Emperors of Ishgal. He later joins his fellow Wizard Saints to serve on the Magic Council following the incident with Tartaros.
- The Ace: He's the strongest member of Lamia Scale, on top of being one of the Ten Wizard Saints. This has earned him great respect from everyone, even Lyon, who'd previously been an Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy.
- Badass Beard: He grows one over the Time Skip.
- Badass Longcoat: Wears one after the Time Skip. He doesn't take it off until he decides to get serious while fighting Laxus.
- Bald of Awesome: He's a powerful wizard with a beautiful, bald head. That being said, he's pretty self-conscious about it, noticeably getting ticked off when Jacob Lessio mockingly says "nice hair."
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Beats Brain silly in the Nirvana arc. This trope later becomes literal when he actually smacks Olga's head into the curb with his bare hands, without magic. Later on, he is on the suffering end of this along with three of the Four Emperors of Ishgal, courtesy of God Serena.
- Demoted to Extra: In the Alvarez arc, his role is limited to playing Worf to God Serena while the rest of his former guild takes a more active role in the battle.
- Dishing Out Dirt: He is regarded as a master of earth magic, with his signature attack being the ability to turn even the softest sand into iron-solid rock to attack and defend.
- Does Not Like Spam: According to his profile, he hates peas because a bug crawled into his mouth while he was eating some.
- Gentle Giant: Despite being tall and a bit intimidating, Jura is very kind and humble.
- Graceful Loser: When Laxus scores the telling blow against him in the tournament finals, Jura smiles and congratulates him on his victory.
- Humble Hero: He is one of the Ten Wizard Saints, but dismisses it as only a title granted by the Magic Council, and is incredibly kind and jovial towards his allies.
- Informed Attribute: Subverted. Jura is introduced as one of the Ten Wizard Saints, but between him demurring that he is the weakest of the Saints and the way Angel easily dispatches him, it's easy to assume he's not all that talented. Then he proceeds to issue an unceremonious beatdown to Brain, shocking Lucy and Gray. When they remark that he actually is very powerful, Happy reminds them that of course he is, he's a Wizard Saint.
- Keigo: He refers to all of his allies with the highly respectful honorific "dono", even Happy, whom he calls "Cat-dono" ("Sir Cat" in the dub).
- Kung-Fu Wizard: He is a skilled martial artist on top of using magic.
- Lantern Jaw of Justice: Has a prominent square chin compared to other characters, and is one of the series's most heroic characters.
- Let's Get Dangerous!: Jura is hyped as one of the Ten Wizard Saints, but it doesn't really show at the start, which isn't helped by the fact he calls himself the weakest of the group. However, when he faces Brain, he shows exactly why he has that title.
- Master of All: His Grand Magic Games stat guide has him rated as "COOL" in every statistic except his unique one: hair, in which he gets a 0 for the best reason.
- Mighty Glacier: His one weakness is that he remains in one spot when fighting, which gives Lightning Bruisers like Jellal and Laxus an advantage when they start using their speed. However, he more than makes up for this with raw strength and technique.
- Nice Hat: He wears a headdress upon his introduction in the manga, but it's cut from the anime.
- No Pronunciation Guide: The Japanese dub pronounces his name as "nay-kiss" with a short e sound, while the Funimation dub pronounces his last name as "nee-kiss" with a long e sound.
- Person of Mass Destruction: His Fuji Eruption technique is no different from a volcanic eruption. It's so strong, in fact, that Lyon worries the Council will start imposing restrictions on the Wizard Saints if he ever goes all out.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Once he joins the Council, he automatically becomes one of Fairy Tail's most reliable allies there. He's even notably the only councilor besides Warrod who actually supports and assists with Fairy Tail's return to legal guild status, as opposed to the first two Councils, which almost unanimously agreed the guild should be disbanded.
- Red Baron: "Iron Rock" Jura.
- Simple Staff: He carries one in his introduction, but he is never shown using it.
- Spell My Name with an "S": His surname is spelled "Nehkis" in the Funimation subtitles.
- Taking the Bullet: He sacrifices himself to save Fairy Tail from a trap set up by Brain in the Nirvana arc. Fortunately, he survives.
- Took a Level in Badass: As if he weren't badass enough in the Nirvana arc, he goes from the weakest of the Ten Wizard Saints to the #5 spot over the course of seven years. Considering the four above him are said to not even be human, this makes Jura one of the most powerful human beings on the continent.
- Unexpected Successor: After nearly everyone from the Council is assassinated by Tartaros, Jura and his fellow Wizard Saints (save Makarov, who went missing, and God Serena, who defected over to Alvarez) are chosen as Ishgal's new councilors.
- World's Strongest Man: Downplayed. As the fifth-strongest Wizard Saint, he is considered the strongest human compared to the likes of the four ranked above him, known as the Four Emperors of Ishgal, who are seen as gods among men. He is subsequently blown out of the water by the Spriggan 12, with only Acnologia, Laxus (the person who defeated Jura in fair combat), Natsu, and Gray defeating one of them single-handedly at the height of their power.
- The Worf Effect: Despite being considered one of the strongest wizards alive, he is no match for the might of a dragon. He also stands no chance against God Serena, the strongest of the Wizard Saints, even with the remaining three-strongest on Jura's side.
- Worthy Opponent: He and Laxus come to consider each other as such after Laxus proves able to withstand an attack that could One-Hit KO Olga.
- Yellow Earth, Green Earth: "Iron Rock" Jura is a wizard who specializes in Earth Magic and most of his spells have a yellow aura. In the anime proper, Instant Runes circles associated with Earth spells have a yellowish-golden color.

A love-obsessed woman with the power to control non-humans like dolls using her magic, Doll Attack. She once left Lamia Scale and became one of Lyon's loyal followers to take revenge against Deliora for killing her family. She later cleans up her act and rejoins Lamia Scale alongside Lyon, only to eventually leave when she becomes engaged to Blue Pegasus's Ren.
- Adapted Out: Due to her minimal role in the Nirvana arc, she makes no appearance in the stage play based on that arc.
- Antagonist Abilities: By her own admission and demonstration, many wizards, especially those specializing solely in Summon Magic like Lucy, are heavily disadvantaged in a direct confrontation against her.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: She becomes evil and murderous during the Nirvana arc when she falls under the titular Instant Allegiance Artifact's spell, and nearly goes on a killing spree to avenge Lyon's supposed death.
- Cat Eared Headband: Wears one as part of her post-Time Skip outfit.
- Dark Chick: She represents this trope during the Galuna Island arc to counterbalance Lucy.
- Despair Event Horizon: She crosses it following Lyon's Disney Death, which gets her possessed by Nirvana and sends her on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge. It ends once she finds out he's alive.
- Demoted to Extra: Despite being a moderately relevant antagonist-turned-frenemy to Lucy in the first half of Fairy Tail, she becomes less prominent in favor of her cousin, Sherria, during the Grand Magic Games, before disappearing altogether after Fairy Tail is reformed.
- Dub Name Change: Her Doll Play magic is called "Marionette Attack" in the English dub.
- Elegant Gothic Lolita: Dresses up as such on Galuna Island. She changes her style after joining Lamia Scale, however.
- Expository Hairstyle Change: Goes from Girlish Pigtails to Letting Her Hair Down between her appearances in the Galuna Island and Nirvana arcs sort of as a coming of age thing.
- Freudian Excuse: She performs any amoral order of Reitei in the hope that he will succeed in killing Deliora, guilty of making orphans countless children including Sherry herself.
- Hoist by Her Own Petard: During their battle, Lucy tricks her into taking control of Aquarius, who washes both her and Lucy away with her attack.
- I Am Not Left-Handed: During her fight against Lucy, when the latter thinks she can perfectly react to each of her attacks and then get scared when Sherry creates an immense golem.
- In the Back: After becoming Brainwashed and Crazy under the effects of Nirvana's spell, she creates a dangerous plant monster that she uses to attack and squeeze Gray in its grip as he is distracted and unaware, almost managing to kill him. Later, while trying to attack Lucy and Natsu, Gray repays her with the same coin.
- Lady of Black Magic: She is essentially a very beautiful witch capable of taking control of the body of all non-human creatures and animating any inanimate object to transform it into a monster that will fully obey her orders.
- Love Freak: "Love" is practically her Catchphrase as she uses it in totally bizarre situations, such as using "love" instead of "death" to describe "eternal rest".
- Love Makes You Evil: Part of the reason she follows Lyon in the Galuna Island arc is out of a romantic obsession with him.
