Before the Sirius Island incident, Fairy Tail started out with well over 100 members. Over the seven-year Time Skip, however, their members whittle down to its more prominent members, listed here.
Voiced by: Masaki Kawanabe (Japanese), Brian Mathis (English)
Macao is one of the guild's veteran members. His magic is called Purple Flare, which creates flames that stick to objects instead of burning them. He temporarily fulfills the role of Fairy Tail's fourth master during Makarov's seven-year disappearance.
- Action Dad: His son Romeo is proud to have a badass wizard for a father.
- Adaptation Expansion: The anime extends the time he spends as guild master between Makarov's return and reinstatement, giving him a whole Filler arc to show off his leadership chops.
- Badass in Distress: He goes missing for days on a job to slay Vulcans on Mt. Hakobe. He was no slouch, however; he'd beaten 19 of them single-handedly before the 20th got him while he was worn out.
- Badass Longcoat: Always seen wearing a white longcoat.
- Cool Old Guy: While not that old, he is certainly older than most of the other members in the guild, and is definitely a competent wizard.
- Demonic Possession: In an early arc, his body gets taken over by a Vulcan monster, who then proceeds to fight Natsu and Lucy.
- I Owe You My Life: He repays Natsu for saving him on Mt. Hakobe by covering for him while he goes to save Erza for being unlawfully tried for the collateral damage from the Eisenwald arc. However, it's wasted when it turns out the whole trial is a farce. He finally gets to repay his debt for real in a Filler arc by feeding Natsu with fire so he can defeat Daphne.
- Insistent Terminology: He insists on Wakaba calling him "Master" instead of by name during the Time Skip.
- Magic Fire: He's a fire wizard who specializes in making "sticky" flames that ensnare and grapple enemies. According to his profile, they can't be doused by water or wind, either.
- Manly Tears: After the Time Skip, the poor man breaks down in tears over the fact that he never once saw his son smile once in the seven years since Natsu and the others disappeared.
- One-Man Army: One of his crowning achievements in the guild is single-handedly beating 19 Vulcans on Mt. Hakobe before the 20th got him while he was worn out.
- Out of Focus: He has a fair bit of prominence alongside the other secondary characters in the earliest portions of the manga, but he's all but forgotten about after the Galuna Island arc. He regains some time in the spotlight when he becomes Fairy Tail's fourth master, but he loses it as soon as Makarov retakes his old position.
- Perma-Stubble: His stubble turns into a full mustache after the Time Skip.
- Properly Paranoid: During the Key of the Starry Heavens Filler arc, he is sure to run a full background check on a girl who comes to Fairy Tail's front door carrying an Artifact of Doom and claims to be Lucy's distant relative. This eventually leads to the discovery that this visitor isn't who she says she is.
- Technicolor Fire: His Purple Flare should be an indicator.
- Unexpected Successor: With Makarov and all his potential successors missing and presumed dead during the Time Skip, the role of master falls upon this otherwise minor character. To emphasize how far down the ladder Macao is, Makarov decides to let him keep the position for a laugh while he looks for a more suitable successor.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: He demonstrates some skill in transformation when he turns himself into a tiny red lizard while pretending to be Natsu. In a Filler episode after the Time Skip, however, he is shown to have trouble transforming, and unwittingly turns into a Kaiju-esque supervillain from the strain.
- Waistcoat of Style: Wears one under his Badass Longcoat after the Time Skip.
- "Well Done, Dad!" Guy: Often Played for Laughs. The poor guy envies that his son takes after Natsu more than his old man.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is a shade of bluish purple.

Romeo is Macao's son, who admires Natsu and joins Fairy Tail over the Time Skip to follow in his footsteps. His magic is Rainbow Fire, which lets him conjure flames of different qualities based on their color.
- All of the Other Reindeer: He gets ridiculed by other kids who think knights are cooler than wizards who spend their day getting wasted in a bar.
- Ascended Extra: Apart from a few key scenes, Romeo doesn't feature heavily in the manga's plot at all. In the anime's Key of the Starry Heavens arc, however, he gets more screen time and a bit of action as one of Natsu's traveling partners.
- Child Mage: He is shown to be a fairly skilled wizard by the age of 13.
- Continuity Nod: His Rainbow Fire is the same kind of spell used by Totomaru, one of Phantom Lord's Element 4, who taught him in a magic class.

- Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: He punches Makarov in the face when he refuses to send someone to help Macao in the opening arc.
- Hero-Worshipper: Natsu is his idol, and he goes so far as to emulate his appearance with his shirtless vest and scarf to remember him by when he disappears.
- I Got Bigger: After the timeskip, he shoots up a foot and is quite muscular for his age, showcased by his new outfit styled after Natsu's.

- Mouthy Kid: He takes after Natsu in this regard, butting heads with Macao when he thinks his old man is being unreasonable.
- Perpetual Frowner: He becomes unable to smile after undergoing his seven-year long Heroic BSoD. When his friends return from Sirius Island, he finally breaks into a Tearful Smile.
- Playing with Fire: He learned fire magic specifically to be more like Natsu.
- Scarf of Asskicking: He starts wearing one after he learns magic during the Time Skip, clearly emulating Natsu's appearance.
- Technicolor Fire: His aptly named Rainbow Fire magic lets him create flames with different properties besides heat depending on their color: purple flames are sticky like his father's, blue flames are cold, and yellow flames have a foul smell.
- Took a Level in Badass: Though he's still inexperienced, he turns from a powerless 6-year-old to a full-fledged wizard over the Time Skip.

- Twice Shy: Both Alzack and Bisca Cannot Spit It Out until Bisca finally pops the question over the Time Skip.

Bisca Connel (née Moulin)
Voiced by: Satomi Arainote (Japanese), Angela Chase (English)
Bisca is another immigrant from the West who, similar to Erza, can requip various magical firearms using magic called The Gunner. Before joining Fairy Tail, she was a petty crook named "Moulin Rouge" who impersonated the guild to commit thefts until Erza set her straight. She has mutual feelings for Alzack, whom she marries over the Time Skip.

- Improbable Aiming Skills: She can throw four coins into the air and hit all four of them dead center with one shot.

- Red Baron: She was infamously known as Moulin Rouge during her criminal career.
- Reformed Criminal: An omake reveals that before Bisca joined Fairy Tail, she was an outlaw who operated under the name "Moulin Rouge" and impersonated being a guild member to threaten others. Eventually Erza beat some sense into her and offered her a job at the guild so she could get by.

- Spell My Name with an "S": Bisca's maiden name, Moulin, was originally written as "Mulan" by Del Rey.

- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has green-colored hair.

- Improbable Aiming Skills: In an omake, she's able to hit several criminals on gliders several stories up in the air with her popgun. Unfortunately, her "weapon" has no effect on them.
- Innocent Bystander: During the Grand Magic Games, Flare uses her hyper-extensive hair to hold Asuka hostage without her or anyone else but Lucy knowing. Thankfully, she and Lucy are saved thanks to Natsu's keen senses.
- Meaningful Name: Her name is a Portmanteau of Alzack and Bisuka (the Japanese spelling of "Bisca"). The English dub makes it even more direct by calling her "Asca".
- Nice Hat: She has a ten-gallon hat like her mom.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Asuka's name is "Asca" by Funimation, since it is a combination of "Alzack" and "Bisca" for all intents and purposes.
- Weapon Jr.: Asuka uses wooden pop guns just like the magic guns her parents use.
- You Can See Me?: She is capable of seeing and hearing Mavis's ghost in the anime, something only those with the Fairy Tail emblem can do. While her membership in the guild is never established, the fact she can see Mavis all but confirms it.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is a very dark shade of green in the anime.
Shadow Gear is one of the many teams who make up the backbone of Fairy Tail.
- Big, Thin, Short Trio: They effectively become this after Droy gains weight over the Time Skip, with Jet being the thin and Levy being the short.
- Butt-Monkey: They aren't exactly the most badass fighters of the guild, and they have pretty lousy luck when it comes to winning their battles. Levy overcomes this; Jet and Droy do not.
- Childhood Friends: The third OVA reveals that they go back all the way to when they were kids in the guild.
- Dark Is Not Evil: They may have the word "Shadow" in their name, but they're hardly dark in any sense of the word.
- Stuffed into the Fridge: Downplayed. They aren't killed, but Gajeel brutally beats them and pins their unconscious bodies to a tree in the local park, provoking Fairy Tail into going to war with Phantom Lord.
- Two Guys and a Girl: Levy is the girl, and Jet and Droy are the two guys.
Jet and Droy
Jet voiced by: Masaki Kawanabe, Kyoko Namekawa [young] (Japanese), Michael Chinnici , Corey Cleary-Stoner  (English)
Droy voiced by: Daisuke Endo, Natsue Sasamoto [young] (Japanese), Z Charles Bolton (English)

- Badass Bandolier: Droy wears a yellow bandolier where he keeps his seeds.
- Big Eater: Droy, and it leads to him becoming very overweight after the first Time Skip.
- Butt-Monkey: They're not the most adept wizards ever, and it shows by how often they get beaten up.
- Fat and Skinny: They become this kind of duo after Droy gains weight over the Time Skip.
- Formerly Fit: Droy gets overweight over the Time Skip, and only seems to get fatter as time goes on.
- Green Thumb: Droy's magic, simply called Plant, allows him to grow and control weaponized plants from special seeds.
- Hair Antennae: Droy has an antenna shaped like a sapling.
- Hopeless Suitor: They can never seem to get Levy's attention romantically, especially when she starts falling for Gajeel.

- Love Triangle: They are known to both share feelings for Levy, but she has no interest in them whatsoever.
- Nice Hat: Jet wears a huge hat before the Time Skip.
- No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: They both gang up on Gajeel when he joins Fairy Tail, clearly still sore about how he brutalized them in the Phantom Lord arc. Once they realize that he's letting them attack him as a way of making up for what they did, they stop their assault.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: Jet, whose real name is Sarasuke, according to his profile.
- Satellite Character: Both of them primarily revolve around Levy.
- Super Speed: Jet's High Speed makes him the fastest wizard in Fairy Tail.
Mystogan (Edolas Jellal)
Voiced by: Daisuke Namikawa (Japanese); Robert McCollum, Terri Doty [young] (English)
Mystogan is one of Fairy Tail's S-Class wizards and a doppelganger of Jellal Fernandez from the parallel world of Edolas, where he serves as its prince. Because of his identity, he refuses to let anyone see his face, putting his guildmates to sleep whenever he comes to visit. Having come to Earth-land on a mission to prevent his father from harvesting the world's magic, Mystogan leaves the guild to become the next king of Edolas once his father's plans are thwarted.
- The Aloner: Unlike most of his guildmates, he tends to keep his distance from the rest of the guild to keep his true identity a secret.
- Attack Reflector: His Mirror Water spell deflects any spell back to its caster.
- Badass Cape: He hides his appearance behind a tattered cloak.
- Badass Normal: As revealed in the Edolas arc, he has no magic of his own, instead relying on his magic staffs to fight. It's quite impressive, then, that he managed to become one of Fairy Tail's elite members who can easily hold his own against its other strongest members such as Laxus.
- Childhood Friends: He befriended Wendy shortly after she was abandoned by Grandeeney, traveling Earth-land together with her until he realized he was putting her in danger of being absorbed by Anima, and thus left her in the care of Cait Shelter.
- Cool Mask: He wears a bandana to cover most of his face except his eyes, making him look extremely mysterious and intimidating, as well as hiding his true identity.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Despite putting people to sleep when he comes to the guild, which is somewhat shady, Mystogan has only appeared when his guild needs him most.
- Dramatic Unmask: The moment Laxus blasts Mystogan's mask off and exposes his face to Natsu and Erza comes as a big shock to the two of, as they believed the Jellal they knew to be dead at the time (not to mention he was their mortal enemy the previous time they faced off). It loses its punch in the anime, however, where Jellal's most recognizable features are made even more conspicuous in the fight leading to the unmasking.
- Facial Markings: He has the exact same tattoo as Earth-Jellal does around his left eye.
- Good Counterpart: He serves as one to Earth-Jellal before the latter's HeelFace Turn. After that, there really isn't anything overtly different between them, both being generally noble figures who prefer to operate from the sidelines, and going to some extreme lengths for what they feel is right.
- I Let You Win: Although he's seemingly taken down by Faust in his Droma Anim, he survives without any serious injury, taking the fall so he could tend to a wounded Panther Lily.
- I Owe You My Life: As a child, he was once saved from death by Panther Lily, who knowingly risked exile from his own kingdom for helping a human.
- Instant Runes: He has the power to multiple of magic circles at once, and he appears to perform different attacks depending on the number of layers. He's also one of only a handful of characters who use such magic circles in the manga, whereas virtually every character has them in the first anime series.
- King Incognito: One wouldn't be able to tell from his tattered robes and bandages that he is actually royalty in Edolas.
- Kung-Fu Wizard: He's fully capable of fighting without his staves and contended with Natsu in just a hand to hand fight.
- Magic Staff: He carries up to five staffs with him, which he uses to create Instant Runes for his spells. As a denizen of Edolas, all of his magic is contained within his staffs rather than his own body.
- Master of Illusion: His Skyscraper spell creates a highly convincing illusion that make his opponents think they are about to be devoured by an Eldritch Abomination.
- Mirror Self: He is Jellal from a Bizarro Universe inhabited by other counterparts of Earth-land's denizens, usually with one or two major differences in personality or appearance. Despite this, however, both Jellals are incredibly similar, at least disregarding the brainwashing Earth-Jellal suffers from that turns him into a Dark Messiah.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Mystogan spends the entirety of the Phantom Lord arc taking out Phantom Lord's sub-bases across Fiore off-screen, effectively neutralizing any chance of payback.
- One-Man Army: It's all thanks to him that all of Phantom Lord's subdivisions across Fiore were neutralized, an early indicator of his true power.
- Pillar of Light: His Sacred Song spell produces one through five layers of magic circles.
- Punny Name: His name when written and spoken in Japanese is quite similar to "mist gun". The High School A.U. OVA capitalizes on this by having him walking around spraying a pair of mist guns.
- Put on a Bus: He remains behind in Edolas to replace Faust as king, receiving Fairy Tail's usual sendoff ceremony.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: He's a Warrior Prince who fights to save an alternate universe from being unjustly harmed by his selfish and greedy father.
- The Quiet One: Part of his mysterious nature to the point of looking very intimidating.
- Super Smoke: He can change himself into mist to evade attacks and make convenient getaways.
- Tomato Surprise: Just getting a look at his face, which is identical to Jellal's, is a huge shock until the Edolas arc explains who he really is.
- Walking the Earth: Before joining Fairy Tail, he wandered Earth-land trying to close as many Anima portals as he could.
- Warrior Prince: He's the prince of Edolas, and he's able to match one of Fairy Tail's strongest in a fight.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: A nicer one than Earth-land's Jellal, but his solution to Edolas' crisis is to drain Edolas of its magical power and subsume it into Earth-land, willingly painting himself as a villain in the process.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has cobalt blue hair, just like his Earth-land counterpart.
- Zero-Approval Gambit: His intention for getting rid of the magic in Edolas is to pass himself off as a villain for all of Edolas to unite against, and then have his friend Panther Lily kill him. It's subverted, however, since neither of them have the heart to needlessly sacrifice the other. Fortunately, Natsu and his friends gladly take the fall instead.

Wakaba is another veteran of the guild who is close friends with Macao. He performs Smoke Magic using cigars and pipes. He acts as Macao's adviser during his time as Fairy Tail's master during the Time Skip.
- Cigar Chomper: Becomes one after the Time Skip, trading out his pipe with a cigar.
- Cool Old Guy: He's not that old, but he is older than most of the other members in the guild, and is certainly a competent wizard.
- Dirty Old Man: Wakaba, while not all that old, is older than the majority of the guild and flirts heavily with Mirajane, even though he's married.
- Eyes Always Shut: He only opens his eyes on extremely rare occasions, such as when he is surprised by something.
- Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: He's usually seen smoking a corncob pipe pre-Time Skip and a cigar post-Time Skip.
- Henpecked Husband: Wakaba's marriage is evidently quite troubled, which is one reason why he doesn't see a problem with womanizing, save for his wife finding out.
- Japanese Delinquents: While he doesn't exactly act like one, he has the trademark pompadour before the Time Skip, and dressed more like one when he was even younger.
- Number Two: He serves as one for Macao during the latter's stint as guild master.
- Super Smoke: His magic takes this even further than simply turning into smoke, as he can also create solid smoke "fists" or make copies of himself.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Macao. He doesn't show the latter the respect due to him during the latter's brief stint as master, but remains a close friend.
Voiced by: Daisuke Kageura (Japanese), Gregory Lush (English)
Warren is a wizard whose uses telepathy to converse with others mind-to-mind.
- Adaptational Early Appearance: Inverted. He's around in the manga from the very beginning, but he doesn't show up in the anime until the Battle of Fairy Tail arc, where he makes his first major appearance.
- Chekhov's Skill: Gray gets Warren to use his telepathic powers to gather everyone together and destroy Laxus' Thunder Palace in the Battle of Fairy Tail.
- Comedic Lolicon: Though not extensively focused on, he does blush an awful lot when eying Wendy and Sherria. It's toned down in the anime, though, where he even invites Wendy to a perfectly innocent dance.
- Heroic BSoD: He's reduced to Inelegant Blubbering when he discovers hundreds of the Alvarez Empire's warshipsincluding the Spriggan 12are converging on the guild in all directions with no hope for escape. Thankfully, Max manages to snap him out of it.
- Magitek: Over the second Time Skip, he develops a portable communication lacrima that amounts to the magical equivalent of a smartphone.
- Mission Control: He plays this role for the guild thanks in no small part to his Telepathy.
- Power Incontinence: He frequently lets his thoughts slip whenever he's commenting on cute girls.
- Straight Man: He's often portrayed as one of the most serious members of the guild.
- Telepathy: He can speak into others' minds and link the other members' thoughts together, which is useful for his Mission Control job. 100 Years Quest reveals he can use this offensively by forcibly filling his opponent's head with loud thoughts to disorient them.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Max is very peeved at him when he tries getting the guild to work together during Laxus's attempted takeover, since he was the one who took him out during the Battle of Fairy Tail.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: He's afraid of heights.
Voiced by: Yuichi Iguchi (Japanese), Shelton Windham [2012-2014], Eric Cherry [2014-2019] (English)
Max is a wizard who is in charge of most of the guild's social activities. His magic, Sandstorm, gives him control over sand.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: For the first few episodes of the anime, he sports black/dark brown hair. This eventually switches to dirty blond like he is in the manga when he starts appearing more prominently.
- Ass Shove: He regularly suffers from getting a broom shoved straight up his ass as a Running Gag.
- Can't Hold His Liquor: According to his profile, the only reason he drinks at the guild is because he gets caught up in the atmosphere, and winds up in a stupor because of it.
- Dishing Out Dirt: He deals out sand-based attacks. In 100 Years Quest, he reveals he learned a few techniques from Ajeel Raml himself, though he admits power-wise he's still a nobody in comparison.
- Friendless Background: His profile reveals that his lively personality stems from the fact that he had no friends as a child.
- Get A Hold Of Yourself Man: He gives Warren an earful when he starts cowering at the Alvarez Empire's coming onslaught.
- Nice Guy: He's very chatty and outgoing.
- Perma-Stubble: He grows a bit of chin hair over the Time Skip.
- Spell My Name with an "S": The Del Rey and Funimation spelling of his surname is "Alors".
- Straight Man: Together with Warren, he's one of Fairy Tail's more down-to-earth members.
- Took a Level in Badass: He's not especially remarkable as a fighter when he starts out, but after seven years worth of training, he's able to get the likes of Natsu on the ropes and Natsu has to resort to using Thunder-Fire Dragon Mode to definitely overpower him. However, Natsu's overnight Power-Up effectively renders this moot.
- Waistcoat of Style: He wears a snazzy waistcoat after the Time Skip.
Voiced by: Eiji Sekiguchi (Japanese), Sonny Strait (English)
Reedus is a longtime member of the guild who uses Picto Magic, which allows him to bring anything he draws to life. He has a rotund body courtesy of Makarov's magic, which he uses as a canvas, but slims down over the Time Skip.
- Art Initiates Life: His entire magic style is this, using his own shirt as a canvas.
- Catchphrase: "Oui."
- Cowardly Lion: He's given important tasks in the Phantom Lord and Battle of Fairy Tail arcs. While he's terrified the whole time, and fails both times, he doesn't hesitate to do his best for the guild.
- Formerly Fat: He loses all his bulk after the Time Skip. Justified, since his round body is a result of Makarov's magic, which eventually wears off without Makarov there to maintain it.
- Lovable Coward: He hesitates to go out and fight in the Battle of Fairy Tail because he's scared of Laxus. It works to Makarov's advantage when he tasks him with finding Porlyuscia in order to restore the petrified girls to normal, but unfortunately, Fried prepared for this, preventing him from leaving town with a Jutsu-Shiki and quickly defeating him.
- Nice Guy: So nice, in fact, that he worries about his drawings being too tired if he has them "standing" for too long as he's painting them.
- Nice Hat: He always has a nice top hat on.
- Shrinking Violet: A very shy man who dislikes fighting and would rather draw portraits of the various guild members. He will fight to defend the guild, though.
- Squishy Wizard: He doesn't take many hits before going down in a fight.
Voiced by: Daisuke Endo (Japanese), Mike McFarland (English)
Nab is a wizard who's often seen staring at the guild's job request board rather than actually going out to work. His Animal Possession, a form of seith magic, allows him to augment his own skills with the spirits of animals.
- Beast Man: He uses animal spirits to enhance his own skills.
- Does Not Like Spam: He's said to dislike celery. So much so, in fact, that Levy actually mistakes "Celery" for his last name in the anime, knowing so little else about him.
- Facial Markings: To go with the tribal shaman look he has.
- Formerly Fit: Nowhere near as obvious as Droy, but he's definitely developed a beer-gut over the Time Skip where previously, it was all muscle.
- Lazy Bum: He never takes a job during the entirety of the series, even after the seven-year Time Skip.
- Magical Native American: He has the appearance of one, and he draws power from the spirits of animals.
- Powers via Possession: It's different from Takeover magic as he uses the powers of animals to enhance his own skills rather than actually take them over.

Vijeeter is a wizard whose magic, Dancer, increases his evasiveness and the power of his allies.
- Dance Battler: His entire magic revolves around him dancing to give himself status buffs.

- Nice Hat: He wears a turban after the first Time Skip.

- Action Girl: Alongside many other women in the guild, she will fight with all she has to safeguard the well-being of herself and her friends.
- Back-to-Back Badasses: With Max and Gildarts on occasion.
- Badass Cape: She wears one after the Time Skip.
- Brains and Bondage: Perhaps the nicest of this trope, Laki has various torture devices in her room.
- Green Thumb: She deals with creating wooden structures in a manner much like Gray's ice magic.
- Giver of Lame Names: The names of her spells aren't so much lame as they are terribly confusing, such as "Dam of Shy Love" and "The Distance Between the Two Is Forever", just to name a few.
- Important Haircut: She undergoes a few noticeable hairstyle changes, though their significance isn't really explained.
- Meganekko: Her glasses are among her most notable features.
- Ms. Fanservice: Especially after the Time Skip, as we see Blue Pegasus' Tri-men wooing her.
- Nightmare Fetishist: Her dormitory is filled to the brim with archaic torture devices.
- Scary Shiny Glasses: She gets a few of these moments in the anime.
- Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: She refers to getting a haircut as "chopping her hair", eating as "feeding her stomach", and sleeping as "whittling away the defenseless hours" among several other weird sayings.
- Shaping Your Attacks: Exaggerated with her first spells seen in the anime, with her wood forming things like saws, scythes, limbs, hammers, poles and god knows what else.
- She Is All Grown Up: She was still attractive Pre-Time Skip, but more in a "shy and cute" kind of way with very conservative outfits. After the Time Skip, she got taller, her breasts filled out, and she started wearing much more daring clothing that let her stand out more.
- Those Two Girls: She and Kinana have this dynamic after they start getting more prominence, with there rarely being a scene where one isn't near the other.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is lavender.
Kinana, a.k.a. Cubellios
Voiced by: Natsue Sasamoto (Japanese); Lara Woodhull [Kinana], Lindsay Seidel [Cubellios] (English)
Kinana is a girl who works as a waitress for Fairy Tail. Trapped in the form of a flying venomous snake named Cubellios as a child, she becomes the sole companion of Oración Seis member Cobra. Makarov restores her to normal sometime after the Seis' battle with Fairy Tail, but she's unable to remember her time as a snake except for Cobra's voice. She uses poison magic to produce powerful toxic gases.
- Adaptation Expansion: Her backstory is worked into the plot of the anime-exclusive Key of the Starry Heavens arc. She even briefly reunites with Cobra before he is arrested, and has a handful of Ship Tease sprinkled throughout the anime since.
- And I Must Scream: She is unable to properly speak as Cubellios, making it Cobra's vow to one day hear her voice.
- Ascended Extra: She was originally just a throwaway character based on one of Hiro Mashima's assistants who was put in one of the manga's bonus profiles. Then she started making appearances in the anime, and was even given a prominent role in a Filler arc. After that, Mashima gradually increased her prominence in the manga from fleeting mentions, to background appearances, and finally to having minor speaking parts.
- Baleful Polymorph: Her snake form is the result of a curse placed on her as a child by an evil wizard.
- Giant Flyer: She can grow leathery bat wings that Cobra can ride on as a snake.
- HeelFace Turn: She is introduced as Cubellios, the Animal Companion of Oración Seis member Cobra. Makarov then turns her back into a human, and she comes to work at Fairy Tail as a waitress.
- Hellish Pupils: Her eyes become snakelike in the Key of the Starry Heavens arc while suffering from one of her frequent post-metamorphosis episodes.
- I Will Find You: After being returned to normal from her snake form and having her memory from that form erased, she has vowed to reunite with Cobra, the man whose voice she remembers hearing. She briefly manages to do so in the anime, but only briefly before he's carted off to jail.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: After the battle with Oración Seis, her memories of being Cubellios are erased when Makarov restores her human form.
- Laughing Mad: She briefly erupts in a fit of maniacal laughter in the Key of the Starry Heavens arc when the Neo-Oración Seis assemble the Infinity Clock.
- Morality Pet: Becomes one to Cobra/Erik in the Key of the Starry Heavens arc. He willingly lets himself be turned in rather than risk her getting arrested too, and he shows a much softer side in the few moments they're together.
- Official Couple: At the end of the series, Kinana mentions that she's seeing a man named Erik, this being Cobra's real name.
- Only Friend: Serves as this for Cobra, who dreams of hearing her voice during her time as a snake.
- Poisonous Person: 100 Years Quest reveals that the magic she learned over the second Time Skip allows her to create powerful toxic gas, which references both her relationship with Erik/Cobra and one of her abilities as Cubellios.
- Power Incontinence: She risks transforming into a snake again while reacting to the Neo-Oración Seis' actions throughout the Key of the Starry Heavens arc, though she gets a handle of it in the end.
- Purple Is Powerful: As Cubellios, she was a fairly competent Team Pet in battle.
- Secret Relationship: Played with. Kinana is dating Erik, who was her partner when Kinana became Cubelios, but few get to know the truth. Throughout the series, there are hints that the two can spiritually sense each other and know when one is in distress. This is also the second canon happy couple in Fairy Tail, after Bisca and Alzack.
- She Is All Grown Up: Her pre-Time Skip appearance is more cute than anything, but she blends in well with the guild's other beauties around the time of Fairy Tail's return from Sirius Island.
- Ship Tease: She and Cobra get a bit of this in the anime from their mutual desire to see each other again after being separated.
- Shrinking Violet: She's very quiet and mild-mannered. Bonus as she's got purple hair too.
- Snakes Are Sinister: As Cubellios attacks Cobra's enemies at her master's command, and her venomous bite leaves her victims to die a slow and agonizing death.
- Spell My Name with an "S": "Cubellios" is usually mistransliterated as "Cuberos", especially by Funimation in subtitles, though the dub still calls her "Cubellios".
- Technicolor Toxin: She secretes purple poison as a snake in the anime.
- Those Two Girls: She and Laki have this dynamic after they start getting more prominence, with there rarely being a scene where one isn't near the other.
- Took a Level in Badass: She states that she has finally learned magic after the second Time Skip, which is revealed in 100 Years Quest to be poison-type magic.
- Tragic Monster: Inverted. It turns out Cubellios, a deadly serpent who nearly killed Fairy Tail and their allies, was an innocent, human girl all along.
- Verbal Tic: She ends her sentences with "-kina" before the Time Skip.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Purple, in her case.

Chico C. Hammitt
Voiced by: Kyoko Namekawa (Japanese), Ashleigh Domangue (English)
- Dark-Skinned Blond: A perfectly straight example.
- Soul Power: Chico's Legend of the City allows her to command the wandering ghosts in Magnolia. If she even takes a step out of Magnolia, she would have to collect them all over again.
Krov and Niggy
Krov voiced by: Josh Grelle (English)
Niggy voiced by: Jeff Johnson (English)

- Fighting Your Friend: They're both seen fighting each other during the Battle of Fairy Tail arc.

Rob is a former Fairy Tail wizard who looked after Erza and her friends as children in the Tower of Heaven. He died protecting Erza during the revolt to rescue Jellal.
- Adaptational Badass: He actually goes down fighting in the anime, rather than simply Taking the Bullet for Erza.
- Big Ol' Eyebrows: They're even longer than his Badass Beard.
- Death by Origin Story: His death is what first triggered Erza's magic power, and his stories of his time in Fairy Tail are what led her to join the guild.
- Forgotten Fallen Friend: Apart from one mention of his death in a flashback, he's never mentioned in the manga. This isn't the case in the anime, however, where Makarov and Yajima nostalgically reminisce over their "old pal", and later when Midnight shows Erza an image of his zombified corpse to mentally torment her.
- Friend to All Children: He was very close to Erza's circle of friends, and was dearly loved by them in return.
- Made a Slave: Seeing how he joined a guild and was a close friend of Makarov's, his life of slavery at the Tower of Heaven clearly didn't start until later in his life.
- No Body Left Behind: In the anime, his entire body crumbles apart after getting blasted by enemy wizards.
- Papa Wolf: He put up a valiant defense to save Erza, his granddaughter figure, despite his frail body. This ultimately inspired Erza to join Fairy Tail.
- Playing with Fire: The anime shows him to be a pretty powerful fire wizard.
- Posthumous Character: He gave his life when Erza was a child to secure her freedom from the Tower of Heaven.
- Taking the Bullet: He gets gunned down by the tower's guards to protect Erza.

Rita is Makarov's mother, who suddenly died after giving birth to her son.
- Death by Childbirth: Subverted. Mavis inadvertently killed her under Ankhselam's curse right after she gave birth to Makarov, which everyone believed was the cause.
- Death by Origin Story: She was Mavis' first of many unintended victims under the Curse of Ankhselam, eventually leading directly to her configuration as Fairy Heart.
- Posthumous Character: She died almost as soon as her son was born.
- The Smurfette Principle: Among the Dreyars shown in the series, she is the only female member ever featured in the story.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: She dies in the very same scene she's introduced.

Porlyusica is a cantankerous old hermit who lives in the woods on the edge of Magnolia, serving as Fairy Tail's medicinal advisor. She is a skilled healer, but dislikes other humans. She is also the Edolas counterpart of Grandeeney, the sky dragon, though she herself is an ordinary human.
- Berserk Button: The only thing she hates more than humans is having them hang around when she's working.
- Boomerang Bigot: She firmly believes that Humans Are Bastards, despite being a human herself. This is an indicator of her switched personality with Grandeeney, a non-human who believes Humans Are Special.
- Grumpy Bear: She's blunt and the first thing she does when she sees a human is to snap at them, but she always helps Fairy Tail when they need it.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: She can go from calm to extremely angry with minimal provocation and usually deals with it by snapping at people comically.
- Hermit Guru: She lives out in the woods on the edge of Magnolia, and is visited whenever Fairy Tail is in need of medical aid and wisdom.
- I Was Quite a Looker: The anime shows that she was a pretty young girl, but her hostile personality remained ever present.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Even though she appears to be a cantankerous woman, she's still quite loyal to Fairy Tail and will nurse them back to health without a moment's notice.
- The Medic: First of only four seen in the series (the others being Wendy, Sherria, and Ichiya). Unlike the others, she uses medicine rather than magic.
- Mirror Self: She's the Edolas counterpart of Grandeeney, mirroring her not just in personality (Porlyusica hates humans while Grandeeney likes them), but species as well (a human as opposed to...well, not human).
- 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: She rarely smiles. She is seen smiling mostly around Wendy.
- Prophetic Fallacy: According to Makarov, she has predicted that something will happen once Fairy Tail gets three Dragon Slayers, but it hasn't been stated exactly what.
- Red Herring: When Wendy first meets her, she suspects that Porlyusica is actually her missing dragon guardian, Grandeeney, who shares her voice, scent, and talent for healing. Then Porlyusica states up-front that she's really Grandeeney from Edolas.
- Ship Tease: Every now and then she'll show hits of attraction toward Makarov. She's been admiring him from afar since childhood, but some of her feelings for him have soured with age.
- Tender Tears: The unusually stern-faced Porlyusica is brought to tears in the Battle of Fairy Tail when Laxus's reckless behavior nearly brings Makarov to death's door due to the stress.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: She misdiagnoses Natsu, saying that he has an anti-ethernano tumor when in reality, it's something far worse. Brandish, a villain who's torn between her loyalty to Albareth and the heroes who showed her kindness, apparently cures Natsu by shrinking the tumor, then reverses the process to "prove" to her watching comrades that she's still on their side. Unfortunately, Porlyuscia realizes her mistake too late, so her (and in turn, Brandish's) ignorance about Natsu's condition leads to Natsu's E.N.D. side awakening, and later, his Demon Seed trying to merge with his Dragon Seed, a process that if completed, will kill Natsu.
- You Gotta Have Pink Hair: Her hair is pink.

Hilda is the matron of Fairy Hills, Fairy Tail's all-female dormitory.
- Canon Foreigner: She only appears in an Omake chapter and its OVA adaptation.
- Dead All Along: She died in a carriage accident six years before Lucy joined Fairy Tail; what Lucy has been seeing was her ghost.
- Dirty Old Woman: She forces Lucy to wear a skimpy cat outfit to fulfill the role of "cat princess" in her mission for Erza.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She was always hard-assed, even around the girls when they were kids, but she only ever looked out for their well-being.
- OOC Is Serious Business: One of the last things she did before she died was offer everyone in the dorm toy jewels, and later offered Erza real ones with a smile on her face. The girls were actually a bit unnerved by this.
- Perpetual Frowner: Erza had only ever seen her smile once in all the time she knew her as a child.
- Unfinished Business: Before she died, she promised Erza that she would receive jewels from a "cat princess" as a reward for her kindness. Her ghost posts a job request at the guild specifically for this purpose.
