The 20 Strongest Fairy Tail Guild Members, Ranked

August 6, 2020 15.9k votes 1.8k voters 76.5k views20 items

Who is the strongest member of the Fairy Tail Guild? Now that the Fairy Tail has come to an end, it’s time to decide who is the greatest mage of the titular group. It’s tempting to say Natsu Dragneel is the strongest mage, as his Dragon Slayer magic gives him a fiery edge over the competition. However, his female co-star, Lucy Heartfilia, really grew from a novice user of Stellar Spirit magic to a pro, through the course of the series. 

Of course, there’s more to the Fairy Tail Guild than Natsu and Lucy. Erza Scarlet’s impressive collection of over 100 powerful armors cannot be overlooked. Elfman Strauss is not only physically strong, but can also possess the power of any defeated monster in his right arm. Laxus Dreyar also has the awesome power of electricity on his side. Even with these strong contenders, this barely scratches the surface on who’s the real champion of the Fairy Tail Guild.

  • Mirajane Strauss is a 19-year old S-class mage of the Fairy Tail Guild. Although she is common as the cover girl of Sorcerer Magazine, she was previously known as “The Demon” for her ill-tempered attitude. Mirajane’s personality, however, changed drastically following the death of her younger sister. While Mirajane is more a motherly figure now, she still has the devil within her, as evidence by her Satan Soul ability that transforms her into a powerful demon.

    Makarov Dreyar

    Makarov Dreyar is the Guild Master of Fairy Tail and part of the Ten Wizard Saints of Ishgar. He’s a wise, eccentric, and lewed old man with the magical ability to enlarge his tiny body to gigantic portions through the use of the magic spell Giant. His control over his magic 'Fairy Law' makes him an insanely strong wizard, as evidenced by him defeating Jose Porla in a single blow. While he often goes against the imposing rules of the Magic Council, he’s constantly worried about the destructive nature of Natsu and friends, which prevents him from retiring at 88 years old.

    Gajeel Redfox

    In terms of looks and personality, Gajeel Redfox is the polar opposite of Natsu. Both men share the same age, yet, Gajeel embodies a punk rock aesthetic with a rebellious attitude to go with it. Despite the cold demeanor, Gajeel is shown to be loyal to whatever guild he’s in and becomes friendlier after joining the Fairy Tail Guild. Gajeel specializes in Iron Dragon Slayer magic, which allows him to absorb and manipulate iron. Similar to the Fire Dragon’s Roar, Gajeel’s Iron Dragon’s Roar gives him the ability to spit out a tornado of metal at his enemies.

  • Gray Fullbuster is the coolest member of the Fairy Tail Guild, literally. He’s an 18-year-old mage with the ability to manipulate ice and shape it into various weapons and objects. Gray and Natsu have a friendly rivalry; always going up against one another while caring for each other’s safety. Because of his training, Gray is comfortable wearing little to no clothes, which leads to others believing he’s an exhibitionist.
