Ranked by
  • As an S-Class wizard in Fairy Tail, Erza Scarlet possesses telekinetic abilities and can magically equip herself with different armors and weapons. Her dazzling skills and strict leadership make Erza an invaluable ally to Natsu and the guild.

  • Natsu Dragneel is a young fire wizard and member of the Fairy Tail guild, known for his fiery powers and fierce loyalty to friends. With his magical abilities, Natsu takes on dangerous missions and battles evil forces alongside fellow wizards like Lucy Heartfilia.

  • The enigmatic Wizard Howl casts magical spells and concocts potions in his moving castle. While very vain and dramatic, Howl shows his good nature by protecting the young Sophie from the dangerous Witch of the Waste.

  • In KonoSuba, Megumin is an explosion-obsessed wizard who can cast staggeringly powerful explosion magic, albeit only once per day before she becomes exhausted. Her crazy antics provide comic relief to the adventuring party.

  • The kindly witch Zeniba makes peace with Chihiro and helps break the curse on Haku in Spirited Away. Though her twin sister Yubaba is greedy and overbearing, Zeniba reveals her good spiritual magic.

  • As a Magi in Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic, Judar can summon ice spears and lightning with his magical wand. But his sadistic love of war casts him as an antagonist against Aladdin and Alibaba.
