Galuna Island harbors a cult of wizards who aim to unseal the demon Deliora so their leader Reitei,note actually Gray's old rival Lyon, can slay it himself. Their ritual has an adverse effect on the island's natives, bringing Fairy Tail into conflict with them.
"Reitei" Lyon Vastia
Zalty (Ultear Milkovich)
"Demon of Destruction" Deliora
The Tower of Heaven is a structure built by a cult of evil wizards for the purpose of resurrecting the black wizard Zeref. It is in this godforsaken place where Erza met several of her friends, including Jellal.
- All for Nothing: The cult's years of labor and kidnapping children for the sake of bringing Zeref Back from the Dead are revealed to be all for naught once it's discovered that Zeref never died to begin with.
- Childhood Friends: Erza met Jellal and all her other friends (Shô, Simon, Wally, and Millianna) in this place.
- Evil Former Friend: Jellal and the rest of Erza's old gang were once the closest thing she had to a family before joining Fairy Tail. Eight years later, they kidnap and attempt to sacrifice her to resurrect Zeref.
- Fat and Skinny: Before Jellal rose to power, the tower was run by a fat and skinny pair of Zeref cultists—named Buli and Gali in the anime credits—until they were brutally murdered by Jellal.
- HeelFace Turn: All of them (except Simon, who was Good All Along) end up turning to Fairy Tail's side as Jellal's manipulations come to light.
- Made a Slave: Everyone at the tower who isn't a part of the cult that runs it was subject to this. A fair number of characters such as Jellal, Erza, their friends, and Oración Seis were actually kids when they worked here.
- More Than Mind Control: Jellal quite easily turns Erza's friends against her by sending her away and telling everyone else she ditched them after she went Drunk with Power and tried leading them into a trap. He kept feeding them lies for the next eight years to ensure they remained faithful to him. The English dub tweaks things further by saying he used a spell to keep them from questioning him, but only after tricking them all the same (Simon resisted thanks to the Power of Trust).
- Non-Indicative Name: The "Tower of Heaven" (Rakuen no Tounote ) is anything but: it's a hellish nightmare of a place run by people who think they'll be creating their own "heaven" by resurrecting Zeref.
- One Degree of Separation: Not only did Erza, Jellal, and their friends originate from the Tower of Heaven, but so did Oración Seis (Brain was Jellal's Evil Mentor, while the rest were all child laborers). There are also a few other characters who are related to them: Wally and Hoteye/Richard are brothers, Simon is the older brother of Mermaid Heel's Kagura, and Angel/Sorano is the long-lost sister of Saber Tooth's Yukino.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad: Everyone besides Jellal serves as his in the Tower of Heaven arc.
- Utopia Justifies the Means: They worship Zeref as a Dark Messiah who will create a paradise just for them by wiping out the entire world.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: A number of the slaves, including Erza's True Companions, are understandably messed up due to years of living in fear of torture and death, especially considering a number of them were child slaves.
A former child slave and friend of Erza's. After being possessed by an entity claiming to be the ghost of Zeref, Jellal betrayed Erza and took control of the tower's construction for his own purposes.
Voiced by: Hiro Shimono (Japanese), Greg Ayres (English)
A young man who views Erza as his older sister. He uses a form of Card Magic capable of sealing people within them.
- Anime Hair: He has spiky blond hair.
- Back for the Finale: He's among one of the countless wizards Lucy met across the series who lends his magic to powering up Fairy Sphere and sealing Acnologia.
- Big Sister Worship: He's not related to Erza by blood, but he is nonetheless inspired by her incredible display of power and leadership during their original insurrection, and always refers to her as "Nee-san".
- Cards of Power: His cards contain pocket dimensions that he can trap other people inside.
- Chekhov Skill: He teaches his card sealing spell to Cana off-screen, which comes in handy in the Tartaros arc when she needs to perform a last-second rescue on her guild.
- Corrupt the Cutie: Years of being spoon-fed Jellal's lies have twisted his personality more than the rest of the children, to the point where Erza can hardly recognize him as the bright and sunny boy he used to be.
- Dark-Skinned Blonde: One of the Q&A sections of the manga notes the problem with this trope since Shô and the others should've been inside the tower for most of the time (except when they kidnapped Erza). Lucy takes a guess and theorizes that Shô could've been working on the outer walls of the tower and spent so much time in the sun that his skin eventually tanned into its current color.
- Death Dealer: Shô's magic involves the use of cards, either as prison dimensions or projectiles. He is also fittingly introduced while disguised as a casino dealer.
- Declaration of Protection: Once he has his Heel Realization, his top priority becomes keeping Erza safe, even going so far as to trap her in a card to ensure it.
- Facial Markings: Has a snake-shaped tattoo on the left side of his chin.
- He's All Grown Up: According to the Tartaros arc, Cana reportedly had a fling with a "hot tanned guy" who could use Card Magic.
- Heel Realization: After hearing Erza's side of Jellal's story about her "betrayal", and getting confirmation from Simon soon after, he is absolutely distraught to realize that they were the ones who betrayed Erza.
- I'll Kill You!: He becomes frothing with rage when he learns Jellal has been tricking him, and runs off to kill him himself.
- Mood-Swinger: In the span of a single scene, he goes from glaring darkly at Erza for leaving them for dead at the Tower of Heaven, to warmly complimenting her lovely dress, to crying and hugging his dearly missed sister figure for the first time in eight years, to roaring furiously at her for "betraying" Jellal.
- Put on a Bus: He sets out to travel the world with Wally and Millianna after finally getting free of the tower and Jellal.
- Tears of Remorse: He completely breaks down when he finds out Erza didn't truly betray him, asking how he couldn't believe in her like Simon could.

A man with a deformed face who harbors feelings for Erza, and is the only one who doesn't believe Jellal's lies of her betrayal. He can shroud entire areas in pitch-black darkness with his magic, Dark Moment. He is also the older brother of Kagura Mikazuchi, the ace of Mermaid Heel.
- Adaptational Attractiveness: In the manga, his appearance was more brutish and his upper teeth could usually be seen over his metal jaw early on. The anime changed this (as well as his child appearance) into a more "scarred Bishōnen" type appearance.
- Art Evolution: His early appearances in the manga gives him a heavily disfigured, terrifying visage. Once he's revealed to have been Good All Along, however, his design shifts into something more friendly and appealing.
- Big Damn Heroes: He's the only one apart from Natsu, Erza, and Jellal still in the Tower of Heaven during the battle, allowing him to step in and save the heroes from a crazed Jellal's onslaught. Unfortunately, this ends up killing him.
- Casting a Shadow: His Dark Moment spell shrouds the entire area in pitch-black darkness. He also has night vision enabling him to see in the dark.
- Character Death: He ends up Taking the Bullet for Natsu and Erza from Jellal's deadliest attack, and dies in Erza's arms.
- Childhood Friend Romance: He has been in love with Erza since they were kids. Unfortunately, Erza had feelings for Jellal around the same time, and Simon knows it.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Simon uses Darkness Magic, yet turns out to have been Good All Along and is the first to switch to Fairy Tail's side.
- Died in Your Arms Tonight: He dies in Erza's arms after shielding her from Jellal's Altairis spell.
- Dying Declaration of Love: Subverted in that he never openly confesses to Erza, and instead just thinks it to himself as he dies. However, his manner of death tells Erza volumes of how he truly felt.
- Everyone Can See It: All his friends knew about his crush on Erza, and encouraged him to confess. Tragically, he never had the opportunity.
- Face of a Thug: He is the scariest-looking of the group, but his role as a villain is only skin-deep as he's secretly on Fairy Tail's side long before the series even starts.
- Facial Horror: Simon lost an eye and the lower half of his jaw during the slave revolt. This is toned down significantly in the anime, but the manga clearly shows that he has that metal jaw for a reason.
- Gentle Giant: Despite being absolutely massive, he is a kind soul who only uses his bulk to shield others.
- Good All Along: It turns out that he's the only one of Erza's friends who never believed Jellal's lies of her betrayal, and merely faked being on his side to find a way to stop him. This also allows him to convince Shô to pull a HeelFace Turn, and he tells the others the truth after they try to kill Natsu themselves.
- Heroic Sacrifice: He shields Erza and Natsu from Jellal, sending Erza into a Heroic BSoD and Natsu into an Unstoppable Rage that ends with Jellal beaten once and for all.
- Interrupted Declaration of Love: Eight years ago, he tried to confesses to Erza during the slave revolt. He got blasted in the face while doing it.
- Killed Off for Real: He is notable for being the very first character to be definitively killed on-screen outside of flashbacks. His appearance as a Historia in the Alvarez Empire arc only serves to confirm his death.
- No Pronunciation Guide: His name is pronounced as "SEE-mon" in Japanese, though the Funimation dub calls him "SAI-mun".
- Reverse Mole: During his team's kidnapping operation of Erza, Simon spares Gray and allows Fairy Tail to come to the Tower of Heaven's doorstep to help defeat Jellal.
- Sacrificial Lion: He's one of the more prominent and developed characters introduced in the Tower of Heaven arc, and is the first character in the series to actually be killed by an Arc Villain.
- Taking the Bullet: He dies taking Jellal's Altairis attack for Natsu and Erza.
- Telepathy: Simon is able to communicate telepathically over distances through this.
- Too Good for This Sinful Earth: He was the kindest of Erza's friends, and his little sister, Kagura, thought the world of him. His death at Jellal's hands caused them to develop a grudge for Jellal that persists for many years.
"Mad Dog" Wally Buchanan
Voiced by: Kazuya Ichijo (Japanese), Chris Cason (English), Shelley Osterberger (English child)
A gunslinging man who uses Polygon Magic to separate his angular body into blocks. He talks, dresses, and acts like a 1920's gangster, as a gangster movie was the first thing he saw when he and the other slaves were freed.
- Accent Adaptation: He has a Bronx accent in the English dub to compliment his gangster-like appearance.
- Arm Cannon: The anime switches out his revolver in the manga with the ability to shapeshift his arm into a gun.
- Badass in a Nice Suit: He wears a sharp suit to match his ideal of a gangster.
- Catchphrase: "Dandy."
- Detachment Combat: His magic allows him to split up his body into blocks and launch them at enemies as projectiles.
- Fanboy: Ever since he saw a gangster movie lacrima as a child, he's been deeply obsessed with gangsters and modeled himself after the film's star.
- Fat and Skinny: He's the smaller and lankier sibling compared to the massive and bulky Richard/Hoteye.
- The Gunslinger: He carries a hand rifle in the manga, and an Arm Cannon in the anime, as his preferred method of elimination.
- The Nicknamer: He calls Natsu "boy" quite often.
- No Social Skills: He doesn't seem to know much about the real world besides what he has seen in movies. He also doesn't understand why a man got angry at Millianna for taking one of his food on a stick without paying.
- Power-Upgrading Deformation: Learning magic that lets him split his body up into blocks also gave him a permanently block-like appearance.
- Red Baron: He likes to call himself "Mad Dog" Wally.
- Sinister Shades: His ensemble as a kickass gangster wouldn't be complete without them. Notably, they're broken around the same time
- Uncanny Family Resemblance: His angular Power-Upgrading Deformation is extremely similar to Hoteye's, an early indicator that the two are brothers.
A cat-loving girl who can create magic tubes that bind others' magic. After escaping the Tower of Heaven, she goes on to join the all-female Mermaid Heel guild.
The Death's Head Caucus assassin guild's elite guerilla squad. They replace Erza's friends as Jellal's minions once the others switch sides.
- Animal Theme Naming: They're all named after birds: "Ikaruga" is a Japanese grosbeak, "Fukuro" is a type of owl, and Vidaldus's last name, "Taka", is Japanese for "hawk".
- Blood Knight: All to varying degrees; Vidaldus is the Ax-Crazy type, Fukuro is a Knight Templar, and Ikaruga is a Soft-Spoken Sadist.
- Professional Killer: They are group of assassins who participate in killing others.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad: They step in to replace Jellal's old squad in the Tower of Heaven arc since they were beaten/pulled a HeelFace Turn.
- Spared By Adaptation: They're implied to have died when the Tower of Heaven falls apart in the manga, but the anime shows them escaping well clear of the explosion on Fukuro's back. This leads to a plot hole in the Alvarez Empire arc when Neinhart temporarily resurrects Ikaruga as a Historia.
Avatar is a Black Magic Cult that fills the void left after the Balam Alliance's defeat. They worship Zeref as a Physical God of Evil, and seek to force every other wizard in Earth-land to do the same.
- Anti-Climax: For the so self-proclaimed successors of the Balam Alliance, they are mere child's play compared to previous villains, as they endure a literal Curb-Stomp Battle at the hands of Fairy Tail.
- Black Magic: The cult's top members each practice in a form of black magic, though how it differs from other forms of magic isn't quite established.
- Catchphrase: "Zeref's will be done."
- Creepy Cathedral: This serves as their base of operations, fitting for a cult of black wizards.
- Cult: They are pretty much the human version of Tartaros in terms of devotion to Zeref.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: On the receiving end of it by their final battle with Fairy Tail's strongest team, who practically decimate them without so much as a single scratch on them. Even the war god Alok summons goes down in two punches by Natsu before it can wreak any havoc.
- Evil Plan: Their plan, "Operation Purify", involves wiping out the entire town of Malva to attract Zeref's attention. Little do Alok's followers know is that they are the real sacrifices.
- Evil Power Vacuum: When the Balam Alliance is taken down, Avatar takes over in their place.
- Irony: They perform their "purification ritual" because they think it will summon Zeref. They actually have this backwards: Zeref doesn't appear because of a large number of deaths; a large number of deaths occur because of Zeref's appearance.
- Mass "Oh, Crap!": Their general reaction when Fairy Tail's strongest team returns and starts mowing down their numbers.
- Meaningful Name: In Hinduism, an avatar is a deliberate descent of a deity to Earth, or a descent of the Supreme Being and is mostly translated into English as "incarnation", but more accurately as "appearance" or "manifestation".
- Mooks: Like the dark guilds before them, they have a large amount of flunkies at their disposal to act as Fairy Tail battle fodder.
- Not What I Signed Up For: Alok never told his other members that his plan banked on them being defeated so that he can unleash a war god and sacrifice them to it. Needless to say, they're utterly horrified once they find out.
- Religion of Evil: Avatar worships Zeref as a living deity, much like Tartaros and Grimoire Heart.
- Reverse Mole: Avatar suspects one of its members to be leaking information to the Magic Council. It turns out there are actually two moles: Levy is the Council member in question, masquerading as a rank-and-file cultist; Gray, who infiltrated the cult's inner circle, has his own separate agenda with Erza.
- Tempting Fate: They're confident that their numbers of 2,000 or so members are more than enough to stop Natsu's little band. They realize only too late that plowing through waves of enemies is their thing.
- "Wanted!" Poster: They have their own wanted poster with a high amount of Jewels.
- The Worf Effect: They're built up as the next big threat on the face of Ishgal after the Balam Alliance (Oración Seis, Grimoire Heart and Tartaros). To their dismay, each and every one of their top members are mere Canon Fodder set up to give Fairy Tail an easy victory before their real greatest challenge.
High Priest Alok
The high priest of Avatar. A faithful follower of Black Magic, he concocts a plan for a certain ritual to "purify" the world on behalf of Zeref.
- All According to Plan: He saw the defeat of his cult's members long beforehand, because he never intended anyone, even his fellow cultists, to survive anyway.
- Arc Villain: He serves as one in the second half of the Fairy Tail Revival arc, where he tries summoning a War God he (wrongly) believes would appease Zeref.
- Bad Boss: He offers up his own followers as sacrifices to Ikusa-Tsunagi without their know-how or consent, all out of his devotion to Zeref.
- Badass Cape: One that covers his entire body.
- Badass Preacher: He exudes this in spades with the intimidating calm he shows while commanding his troops.
- Barrier Warrior: His specialty in magic is creating barriers that can stop anything in their tracks... at least before Natsu comes along]].
- Big Bad Wannabe: With the dissolution of the Balam Alliance, he's set up as the leader of the next biggest threat Earth-land has faced behind Zeref and Acnologia. He doesn't even last as long as Fairy Tail's earliest villains.
- Cool Mask: He covers his entire face with an iron mask.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: He's so blindly devoted to his cause that he scoffs at things like friendship and family values.
- Facial Horror: He wears a mask to hide the fact that he burned the skin off of his face as his price for summoning Ikusa-Tsunagi. We only get a glimpse of his scarred visage when Natsu cracks it.
- Generic Doomsday Villain: He serves no role beyond being the baddie that gets Fairy Tail's strongest team back together.
- Magic Staff: He holds a staff with a eye with wings on it, which he uses to make his barriers.
- Slasher Smile: Once his mask his damaged, he sports one of these while Ikusa-Tsunagi slaughters his own men.
- The Stoic: He's mostly unfazed by his soldiers' defeat, mainly because it was All According to Plan. Seeing Ikusa-Tsunagi go down with two power punches from Natsu...not so much.
- Summon Magic: He uses the same magic as Minerva that allows the summoning of gods, though his is on a much higher tier as it involves human sacrifice.
- This Cannot Be!: He can do little more than stare in silent shock as Natsu destroys Ikusa-Tsunagi, a seemingly indestructible war god.
- Tin Tyrant: Aside from his Badass Cape, he's decked out in a suit of armor that obscures his entire body from sight.
- Vader Breath: His breathing can be seen in the form of clouds that exit his mask's mouthpiece.
"Shade Sword" JeromeA bushy-haired swordsman who can't take a joke. His Shade Sword corrodes anything it touches.
- Bishōnen: He's a definitive pretty boy with golden locks and long eyelashes.
- Black Swords Are Better: His Shade Sword has a dark blade that instantly breaks any sword it clashes with.
- Informed Ability: He's supposed to be a Master Swordsman. Then he fights Erza, and she proves who the real master between them is.
- Make Them Rot: His sword has this effect on whatever it cuts.
- Messy Hair: He is noted for his unkempt hair, which earns him the nickname "Scruffy" from Briar.
- Red Baron: "Shade Sword" Jerome.
- Sarcasm-Blind: He actually seems to admire the tacky nicknames Briar gives him, and he does it with a straight face.
Avatar's strongest black wizard who often gives tasteless nicknames to her allies. Her Splitting Magic lets her split into four clones with different personalities.
- Absolute Cleavage: Her top is just a band of cloth tied together at the front.
- All Girls Want Bad Boys: She's attracted to Gray, who remains cold and distant from the rest of the cult during his membership there.
- The Comically Serious: Her seriousness is undermined by the silly nicknames she gives her comrades.
- Dark-Skinned Blond: She is of the white-heared variety.
- Dishing Out Dirt: She uses magic that can send explosive shockwaves through the ground.
- Et Tu, Brute?: Briar feels betrayed and lied to when Gray reveals himself to be a Reverse Mole, owing to her Villainous Crush on him.
- The Gadfly: It's implied that she gives others nicknames to get under their skin, which displeases her when Jerome actually seems to like the names she gives him, forcing her to come up with new ones.
- The Nicknamer: Tends to give weird nicknames to her teammates: Jerome is "Scruffy" and "Eyelashes"; Mary is "Wicked Tongue"; and Gray is "Ice" and, after his Reverse Mole status is revealed, "Gray Sewer Rat".
- Self-Duplication: Her Splitting Magic creates four clones who embody fury, laughter, sorrow, and love.
- The Stoic: She holds a serious expression most of the time. Even when she finds out Gray was a Reverse Mole, her anger is generally restrained.
- Vapor Wear: It's a wonder how she doesn't completely explode out of her top.
- Villainous Crush: One of Briar's alter egos, Briar in Love, says that she loves Gray "just a little". Unfortunately for her, that's just enough for Juvia to declare her a love rival.
- The Worf Effect: Despite being touted as the top wizard of Avatar, Gray and Juvia make very short work of her.
A cheery, giggling girl whose magic, Virus, instantly afflicts her victims with deadly diseases.
- Agony Beam: Her magic afflicts intense pain on other by means of viral infection.
- Animal-Eared Headband: Wears a headband shaped like cat ears.
- Cute and Psycho: She has the most bizarrely cheerful expression on her face as she gives Lucy a nasty stomach virus.
- Exotic Eye Designs: Her eyes have diamond-shaped pupils.
- Laser-Guided Karma: She loves to target Lucy's stomach to see her write in agony. When they face off a second time, Lucy repays her in kind by delivering a Taurus-enhanced Lucy Punch to her gut, making her keel over just like Lucy.
- Logical Weakness: Her affliction magic amounts to jack squat in the face of Wendy's healing powers.
- Meaningful Name: Her name is shared with Mary Mallon, better known as Typhoid Mary, an infamously asymptomatic carrier of typhoid fever believed to have unintentionally infected fifty-one people (killing three of them), despite showing no outward signs of illness.
- Perky Female Minion: She's the most chipper and comical of all the Avatar members.
- Plaguemaster: Her magic infects nearby foes with viruses. She favors torturing her victims by attacking the digestive tract, but she can lethally target the brain.
- Soft-Spoken Sadist: She keeps the same cheerful smile and tone while tormenting her opponents and insulting their guilds.
- Squishy Wizard: She can't take punches well. Likewise, a wizard who has support magic like Wendy can easily counteract her viruses.
- Supernatural Gold Eyes: Her eyes are gold, reinforcing her cat motif with her diamond-shaped pupils.
- Tears of Fear: She's left quivering in fear after Natsu proves himself powerful enough to completely obliterate a war god the size of a mountain.
- Tempting Fate: Every chance she gets, she just loves to bring up how weak Fairy Tail must have been to fall apart despite being so popular. Not one minute after she makes that statement to Lucy, Mary gets a beefed up punch to the stomach from her.
- Underestimating Badassery: She assumes Fairy Tail disbanded because they were weak, and spends quite a bit of time taunting them for it. Like all who came before her, she eats her words.
- Villainous Crush: She shoots a meaningful glance or two to Gray, and admits that she finds him "dreamy".
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is pink.
A man with bushy eyebrows who makes various tea-related puns. His magic gives him control over torture devices.
- Bald of Evil: He has no hair, and instead has kanji written on his forehead.
- Beware the Silly Ones: He seems a bit comical about torture and his tea puns, but that doesn't stop him from trying to cut Lucy in half with an ax.
- Big Ol' Eyebrows: His are big and spiky.
- Bilingual Bonus: A two-for. Written with different kanji, his name means "torture". The kanji on his forehead, on the other hand, reads "matcha", which is a type of green tea.
- Chain Pain: Uses these along with magic cuffs to tie up Virgo and Natsu. They have an Anti-Magic effect as well.
- Cloudcuckoolander: He bows respectfully to people who aren't even there, or in the same direction as the people he's talking to.
- Cosplay: He claims to be cosplaying as Zeref with the attire he has on, by his own admission.
- Embarrassing Tattoo: To show his devotion to Zeref, he tattooed his forehead with what he believed was the kanji for Zeref. Unfortunately, due to his unfamiliarity with kanji, he wound up getting a tattoo meaning "green tea".
- Eyes Always Shut: His whole face is scrunched up at all times. Probably because he is a lot less intimidating with them open.
- Fanboy: In-Universe, of Zeref. He says that his choice of outfit is actually cosplaying as Zeref, and he even thought the kanji on his forehead spelled Zeref's name (it doesn't).
- Mind over Matter: His magic allows him to telekinetically control torture devices.
- Pungeon Master: He has a tendency to make bad tea-related puns.
- This Loser Is You: Appears to be a tongue-in-cheek parody of stereotypical fanboy convention-goers, especially fans of Shōnen villains.
- Torture Technician: He has quite a collection of torture instruments, making him this for the cult. His arsenal of torture instruments include an iron maiden, a wooden horse, and a goat trained to slowly lick the flesh off of his victims' feet.
- The Worf Effect: Downplayed. His torture devices don't stand a chance against Natsu, leading to him getting knocked out early. However, he manages to get the drop on him shortly after while he's distracted, only to then be effortlessly get frozen solid by Gray.
D-6A man who wears an impressive suit of armor. His magical abilities are unknown.
- Ambiguously Human: Given his body shape and odd name, one must wonder if he's even human at all.
- Cool Mask: Has an oddly-shaped mask with a small grate right in the center.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Has a single red eye that glows when he's about to attack.
- Shoulders of Doom: He wears giant shoulder pads shaped like horned demon faces.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: He's beaten and taken out of the story before we can learn anything about his powers and abilities.
- The Worf Effect: He's one of Avatar's strongest, yet he's taken down twice before he can even demonstrate his power. First by Natsu when he tried to ambush him, and again by Panther Lily as he's trying to rally the retreating Avatar army.
- You Are Number 6: His name is simply a letter and a number.
A clown who carries a Mr. Cursey doll given to him by Kain Hikaru of Grimoire Heart. Like Kain, Able uses the Curse of Vengeance to control others' bodies.
- Creepy Child: He certainly looks and acts like one, given his tiny size.
- Meaningful Name: Seeing how his doll was previously owned by Kain Hikaru, his name is almost certainly a reference to the biblical Cain and Abel.
- Monster Clown: The makeup he wears resembles a clown, and he certainly didn't join a cult worshiping Zeref to do good things.
- So Last Season: When Kain used his cursing magic in the Sirius Island arc, it was a huge threat to Fairy Tail. However, that's only because they didn't have eight years worth of training under their belt. By then, it's just a mild inconvenience at best.
- Squishy Wizard: Both Natsu and Gajeel take him out with one attack each.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: He's beaten and locked away before we learn any sort of relationship between him and Kain, such as how he even got the doll.
One of the Yakuma Eighteen Battle Gods, summoned by Alok in his hopes of appeasing Zeref.
- BFS: His sword is so massively huge, Natsu can do a Blade Run on it as if he were scaling a mountain.
- Defeat Equals Explosion: Natsu's Fire Dragon King's Demolition Fist sends an explosion that splits him right down the middle.
- David vs. Goliath: An impossibly colossal War God against a puny human tiny enough to stand on his forehead. Too bad for the god, that "human" is also the world's deadliest demon equipped with the power of the greatest fire dragon to ever live.
- War God: It's part of an alleged pantheon of gods summoned by the Yakuma people. Minerva also specializes in summoning them.
- The Worf Effect: Oh boy, howdy. He is literally a nigh-indestructible god of war who could easily surpass most of Zeref's deadliest demons. His role in the story? To establish Natsu (a.k.a. E.N.D.) as the bigger force of destruction.
