Top 25 Most Powerful Fairy Tail Characters

List items

  • Ultimately, he defeated both, Acnologia & Zeref, so therefore he deserves being ranked at #1.

  • Displayed the most destructive capacity, also, in his soul form he dominated all the dragon slayers - until Natsu was given the combined power of all the other dragon slayers.

  • Immortal. Once he had acquired Fairy Heart, he said to have unlimited magic powers, nevertheless he was struck down by Natsu.

  • Fought a serious death battle against E.N.D. Natsu, and lived to tell about it (it ended in a draw). So therefore he is not much weaker than Natsu. He was also very close to defeating Zeref with an advanced version of 'iced shell', and only stopped at the last moment by Natsu.

  • She has a dragon form, she can summon meteors from space, and she can magically rearrange the geography of a whole country. That's quite some enormous power she displayed. For her defeat, it took the combined powers of Erza, Wendy + Irene's own personal change of mind.

  • Immortal. Just like Zeref, she was suffering from the 'Curse of contradiction' and could - more or less involuntarily - kill anyone who came too close. She's also the most intelligent strategist of all time. Capable of using the all-conquering magic 'Law'.

  • Unlike Irene, August just didn't get enough opportunities to 'shine' and to display at least part of his full magical powers. However, at the end of his fight with Gildarts he was very close to using a magic that might have blown up the whole country, and hadn't he seen Mavis at the last moment, maybe it would have happened. According to the story, he is just as powerful as Irene.

  • He put up a good fight against (Dragon form) Acnologia, and wounded him. That's enough reason to include him in any 'fair & objective' Top-10 listing.

  • Aside from basically One-shotting a reanimated God Serena (said to be the former #1 strongest wizard saint), he also put up a good fight against August and contributed to his defeat. His unique ability to nullify and stop most enemy magic by 'crushing it' before it can take effect, surely makes him one of the most powerful individuals in FT.

  • She was able to crush the meteor Irene had summoned with only her sword, and despite being injured significantly. But aside from fighting Irene - and ultimately contributing to her defeat): Over the course of the whole series Erza had also fought & won countless other important battles against strong opponents, so ranking her here at #10 appeared to be fair & justified.

  • His dubious spell that's capable of putting anyone (except Sting) out of commission , appeared to have a huge range. Sting, Rogue & Co. had to give their very best to defeat him.

  • Not only is he a highly skilled & fast H2H combat master, seeing how he was able to take on multiple (4+) former wizards of Horacion Seis simultanously, but ofc his ability to summon devastating meteors from space also makes him powerful.

  • In theory, stopping & controlling time was supposed to give her an advantage against almost any opponent, and indeed such 'time manipulation' is a powerful magic. But it was also shown that if an opponent (like e.g. END Natsu) was 'too' powerful, then the 'time magic' didn't work, so therefore ranking her here at #13 should be good enough.

  • Just like Dimaria, her magical power to shrink anything and anyone to the size of a bug, allowing Brandish to crush them under her feet, has a lot of potential, so in theory she was supposed to have an easy time crushing & defeating 'any' opponent who wasn't immune to her shrinking' magic. Luckily for FT, Lucy managed to befriend her

  • Not only can she summon the powerful 'Celestial Spirit King', but she also has additional options which add to her flexibility to adapt do difficult situations, so therefore she is ranked slightly better than her strongest summon.

  • With his gigantic sword, he can cut a whole landscape in half. Or also, he can blow up a city-sized castle in the sky simply by 'flying through' it. CSK is a really powerful guy, it's too bad he cannot be summoned for free - he certainly would have helped a lot in the battle against the Spriggan, too.

  • The #1 Lightning user of FT, and he also has a strong physical constitution , speed & H2H combat abilities. He's also able to use the all-conquering magic 'Fairy Law'.

  • Not only is he incredibly fast, seeing how he managed to evade most attacks of Sting & Rogue, and later, in his demonic form, he also kept up with Natsu & Gray, but he could also 'erase' any opponent (except Gray & Natsu) from existence - with his powerful curse 'Memento Mori'.

  • Managed to defeat 4 wizard saints (including Jura) simultanously, and had control over multiple different types of dragon slayer magic. So there's obvious reasons for why he was the #1 wizard saint, before he betrayed his homeland and joined the spriggan.

  • Eventually, he defeated the powerful death magician & spriggan Bloodman - among several other powerful opponents, over the course of the whole series.

  • Well, he's a dragon, so basically most Non-dragons and Non-dragon slayers would have a very hard time defeating him.

  • Played a co-decisive role in defeating Irene, Dimaria and utimately even Acnologia, so she fully deserves being included in a Top-25 list. She is also a much more powerful / highly skilled individual fighter than what she looks like at first glance, and this was confirmed when she defeated Ezel.

  • Although the strong spriggan, the 'winter general' was ultimately defeated by devil slayer Gray, he sure put up a good fight.

  • The one performance that finally convinced me to include him in the 'Top 25' was his heroic fight against the powerful spriggan 'Larcade Dragneel', as well as his contribution to Acnologia's ultimate defeat.

  • He is pretty much just as strong as Sting. Transferring his magical powers to Sting (vs. Larcade) and Natsu (vs. Acnologia) were some of his most decisive accomplishments, so therefore he was included in this list, too.
