When it comes to anime released in the latter part of the 2000s, one of the most popular series is Fairy Tail, which spanned for a total of ten years. Its manga is just as popular as its anime series, as this is one of the most popular shonen anime over the last 15 years. Of course, the Fairy Tail characters are just as popular as any other anime character.
One of the biggest reasons why Fairy Tail characters are so popular is their amazing charisma. The different characters each have their own unique personalities, but all of them are charismatic in their own way. As such, knowing more about the characters, their age, birthday, height, and powers will make us appreciate them more.

1. Natsu Dragneel
Birthday: July 7
Powers and Abilities: Natsu Dragneel’s powers and abilities are focused on his fire dragon slayer magic, which was taught to him by the Fire Dragon King Igneel. This allows him to perform all types of fire dragon slayer magic and can even replenish his own magic by consuming fire. On top of his fire dragon slayer magic, Natsu can perform lightning dragon slayer magic to some extent after Laxus gives him a bit of his magic.
Natsu also has the ability to use fire dragon king mode, which makes use of the remaining power that Igneel bestowed on him. As an etherious, Natsu can access his demonic power and transform himself into a demonic being with power that rivals that of the gods.
2. Lucy Heartfilia
Birthday: July 1
Powers and Abilities: While Lucy doesn’t have the same physical gifts that the other members of Fairy Tail have, she is an adept user of celestial spirit magic, which allows her to summon celestial spirits that can be called upon when as long as she is in possession of their respective keys. Lucy is in possession of 10 gold keys, which are capable of summoning the powerful zodiac spirits.
Using the keys of her celestial spirits to perform star dress, Lucy can also transform by obtaining the powers of the spirits residing within the keys. She essentially equips their powers and gains the same abilities as those of her celestial spirits. On top of that, Lucy can also perform fairy sphere, which is the ultimate defense magic created by the founder of Fairy Tail herself.
3. Gray Fullbuster
Birthday: February 13
Powers and Abilities: Gray Fullbuster’s magic revolves around his ice-make magic, which is a type of molding magic that allows him to form any kind of object using ice. Gray’s ice-make magic is static in the sense that it allows him to create inanimate objects. Because he specializes in ice-make magic, Gray is resistant to ice and cold. On top of that, Gray is also capable of using the standard ice magic, which allows him to manipulate the element of ice.
Later in the series, Gray learned how to perform ice devil slayer magic, which is a variety of ice magic that is capable of slaying demons. This allows him to manifest and control the element of ice and use this type of magic in a way that is effective against demons.
4. Erza Scarlet
Birthday: April 7
Powers and Abilities: Erza’s powers and abilities revolve around her requip magic, which allows her to instantly equip different types of armors and weapons at will. As such, Erza owns a lot of different armors that each have their own specialty in battle. On top of that, Erza is also capable of performing sword magic and telekinesis, which have allowed her to boost her overall prowess when switching in between armors.
Because Erza’s abilities revolve around her requip magic, she is one of the most physically gifted members of Fairy Tail and is probably the best weapons user and close combat specialist in the entire guild. Of course, her prowess as a combatant relies on her use of swords and other types of weapons that differ depending on the armor she is wearing.
5. Wendy Marvell
Birthday: February 27
Powers and Abilities: Like Natsu, Wendy is a first-generation dragon slayer. Her powers and abilities stem from her sky dragon slayer magic, which allows her to manipulate air. The same magic also allows Wendy to perform healing magic. Unlike much of the other dragon slayers, Wendy’s magic is more focused on support, as her offensive capabilities tend to be quite limited.
While Wendy may not be as strong as the other dragon slayers, she is one of the few dragon slayers capable of performing dragon force, which is said to be the most powerful state that a dragon slayer can enter. Using dragon force, Wendy’s physical abilities and dragon slayer magic are pushed to the limits, as she becomes almost as strong as an actual dragon.
Powers and Abilities: As a support-based character, Happy doesn’t have a lot of abilities that allow him to excel in combat. However, he has served Team Natsu well enough because he has the ability to transport them in the air using aera, which allows him to sprout wings that are capable of allowing Happy to fly at high speeds while carrying heavy objects.
Despite his small stature, Happy is actually very durable and is capable of withstanding strong attacks that would have gravely injured or even killed other characters. This allows him to support Team Natsu without becoming a burden to his stronger teammates.
Birthday: June 21
Powers and Abilities: Carla is like her Exceed counterparty Happy in the sense that she isn’t as capable as the other Fairy Tail members when it comes to combat. She is a support character that primarily serves Wendy. While Wendy can use magic that allows her to fly, Carla is still capable of transporting her using her aera magic, which allows her to fly. On top of that, Carla also has precognition abilities that allow her to predict what will happen.
Unlike Happy, Carla has mastered transformation magic, which allows her to transform into a human that is around the same age as Wendy. In her human form, Carla is capable of hand-to-hand combat well enough such that it allows her to support Wendy in a fight.
8. Jellal Fernandes
Birthday: June 25
Powers and Abilities: Initially an antagonist, Jellal Fernandes is one of the most powerful characters in the entire Fairy Tail series because of his rare kind of magic. Jellal’s magic comes in the form of heavenly body magic, which allows him to generate and manipulate energy from heavenly bodies such as the stars. He is so powerful and proficient with his magic that he can perform spells that have the destructive capabilities of an actual meteor.
At one point, Jellal was possessed by Zeref. This allowed him to use dark magic to some extent. On top of that, Jellal is so proficient with magic that he can perform fire, water, earth, and air magic well enough. Much like his love interest, Erza, Jellal also has the ability to control things using telekinesis.
9. Juvia Lockser
Powers and Abilities: Juvia’s powers and abilities revolve around her mastery of water magic, as it allows her to produce, control, and manipulate water at extremely proficient levels to the point that she can even turn into water. Offensively, she can use water magic in a way that allows her to create blades that are strong enough to cut through solid rock. Juvia’s magic is also amplified whenever she is in an extremely emotional state.
Because her powers are focused on water, she has shown the ability to work extremely well with Gray’s ice-make magic. She often uses her magic in a way that will allow Gray to use the water she produces to freeze opponents.
10. Gajeel Redfox
Powers and Abilities: Gajeel is the third first-generation dragon slayer that belongs to the Fairy Tail guild and is one of the strongest dragon slayers in the entire series. He is capable of using iron dragon slayer magic at a masterful level and was trained by the iron dragon Metalicana. That means that Gajeel’s magic focuses on the control of iron, which allows him to use it both offensively and defensively. And like all of the other dragon slayers, he can eat iron and other types of dragon slayer elements to strengthen himself.
After eating Rogue’s shadow dragon slayer magic, Gajeel was able to use iron shadow dragon mode, which allowed him to turn his body into shadow while simultaneously using his iron dragon slayer magic. Gajeel can also use dragon force, which is the ultimate form that any dragon slayer can take. On top of that, he is a master hand-to-hand combatant and often uses his iron dragon slayer magic in conjunction with his close combat style.
11. Makarov Dreyar
Powers and Abilities: As the master of the Fairy Tail guild and as the grandson of one of the founders of the guild, Makarov is extremely gifted and talented despite the fact that he is in an advanced age. But, unlike a lot of the other members of Fairy Tail, Makarov seemingly doesn’t have a specialty in terms of his magic, although his signature magic is his giant form, which allows him to enlarge his body to humungous proportions.
On top of his giant magic, Makarov is also proficient in light magic, which allows him to use light as a form of offense, especially whenever he is in his giant form. However, arguably his strongest magic is fairly law, which deals heavy damage on whoever Makarov believes in his heart is an enemy. Using this magic, he can easily sweep an entire area of enemies while keeping all of his allies safe from the effects of this spell.
12. Mirajane Strauss
Powers and Abilities: Mirajane Strauss is one of the strongest members of Fairy Tail and has a kind of power that rivals only the strongest members of the guild, such as Erza, Laxus, Makarov, and even Natsu. And this is made possible with her take over magic, which allows her to take the form of demons. Her form of take over magic is Satan Soul.
Using Satan Soul, Mirajane can transform into several different demons, whose powers she has already memorized. This includes the demon Seilah, who was one of the strongest etherious they encountered in the Tartaros arc.
13. Laxus Dreyar
Powers and Abilities: Laxus Dreyar is the grandson of Makarov and is one of the most powerful members of Fairy Tail, such that his power rivals that of Erza, Natsu, and Mirajane. And while he started out as a troublemaker, he eventually became one of the most reliable members of Fairy Tail because of his immense power.
The power that Laxus wields comes from his lightning magic, which is his signature magic. His lightning magic is so powerful that he can use a spell that can decimate an entire city. However, thanks to the lightning dragon lacrima implanted in him, Laxus is capable of using lightning dragon slayer magic, making him a second-generation dragon slayer and the fourth dragon slayer in the Fairy Tail guild. Like any dragon slayer, he can eat lightning to augment his powers and then use immense lightning dragon spells that are strong enough to slay dragons.
14. Mavis Vermillion
Powers and Abilities: As one of the founders of Fairy Tail and is its first guild master, Mavis Vermillion is immensely powerful and has the capability to use extremely strong spells that can rival any other mage. Mavis is proficient in illusion magic, as she was able to use this magic even when she was in a state of comatose. On top of that, Mavis was the one who created fairy law, fairy glitter, and fairy sphere, which are the Fairy Tail guild’s most powerful spells.
As powerful as Mavis is, her strength comes in the form of her tactical mind. She is very smart and proficient in coming up with different strategies against any kind of odds. This tactical mind is what makes her a brilliant leader and a very dangerous opponent for those who want to make enemies out of Fairy Tail.
15. Zeref Dragneel
Birthday: July 19
Powers and Abilities: Zeref Dragneel is one of the most powerful characters in the entire Fairy Tail anime and has a kind of power that is probably second only to Acnologia. Zeref’s power stems from his mastery of the black arts, which allows him to create immensely powerful demons. On top of that, his magic power is so great that there are times that he cannot even consciously control it.
Due to his mastery of the black arts and his extended lifespan, Zeref is capable of performing a lot of different spells. This included law, which is where fairy law was derived from. Zeref was also the one responsible for teaching Mavis how to do magic, and that speaks to how immensely powerful he is.
Powers and Abilities: Acnologia is the most powerful character in the Fairy Tail anime, such that not even Zeref, an extremely powerful wizard, is powerful enough to defeat him. That said, Acnologia is one of the first dragon slayers in existence and lives to slay dragons. He slew so many dragons that he himself eventually turned into the strongest dragon there is.
In terms of what type of magic he can do, there are no specifics in Acnologia’s type of magic. However, he seems to be capable of base dragon slayer magic and is powerful enough to kill God Serena, arguably the strongest wizard in Ishgar, in an instant. Acnologia’s power seems to transcend time and space as he is also capable of performing time magic.
17. Gildarts Clive
Powers and Abilities: Crush is an extremely powerful Caster Magic that smashes everything the user comes into contact with into pieces. It can be used to both crack Magic into pieces, thereby nullifying its effects, as well as to reduce the Magic’s power and to deflect it.
Even the most powerful spells are rendered useless when faced with this destructive and advanced Magic, which is difficult to control even for an extremely powerful individual like Gildarts himself.
The effects of Crush occasionally manifest themselves as the target being separated into cubes; interestingly, should Crush be directly cast on another living organism, the recipient is separated into numerous, doll-like versions of themselves. After some time, the target should revert to their original form, but should Gildarts wish, he can manually change them back.
18. Cana Alberona
Powers and Abilities: A type of Holder Magic revolves around the use of Magic Cards, which can produce a variety of effects, such as generating both abiotic and biotic things. Cana’s cards can be used for offense, with her fighting style having been described as “all-round”.
She can employ them as long-range weapons by throwing them at her enemies, and has displayed considerable accuracy in doing so; she is also said to be capable of combining her cards to generate particular effects (something which was extensively shown in the anime).
Aside from combat, Magic Card seems to possess other avenues for usage: Cana apparently can track down people to some degree through the cards’ use, as shown when she placed several of them on the ground in an attempt to pinpoint Mystogan’s location, but to no effect, leaving the effectiveness and the conditions of the cards’ tracking power unknown.
In addition, the cards can reproduce the effects from a variety of different forms of Magic, such as Water Magic or Sleep Magic, coming in as very versatile, if used the right way.
Cana’s cards can also be linked to specific individuals, allowing her to gain information about their status and location, as well as to communicate with them. Cana would later gain access to one of the three great spells of the guild Fairy Tail, namely Fairy Glitter. This prompts a large, bright halo of light to surround the target, which rapidly constricts around and heavily damages them.
19. Levy McGarden
Powers and Abilities: Levy’s Magic is focused on writing and words: Solid Script, a form of Letter Magic, allows her to generate words in the air and make them solid, subsequently throwing them at the enemies with different effects.
To create such words, Levy is shown performing gestures with one or both of her hands, depending on the spell. In the year X792, now can generate words by the use of her feet giving her more flexibility with her Magic.
20. Irene Belserion
Powers and Abilities: Also known as world reconstruction magic, can manipulate the very geography of the ground itself, with the ability to compress the land to as much as five percent (or less) of its original size, thereby altering the entire landscape. She also has access to sage dragon slayer magic and is the original creator of the dragon slayer magic.
Height: 5’3” and a half
Powers and Abilities: This Magic revolves around summoning angels, each of which is capable of inflicting different kinds of damage. Sorano is able to summon these angels through the use of golden Angel Coins, with each coin representing a portion of Sorano’s lifespan, and the stronger the angelic being that is summoned, the more coins required, with each Magic Golden Coin equivalent to the cost of 10.
22. Sting Eucliffe
Powers and Abilities: Powers allow Sting to transform the physiology of his body into that of the White Dragon, allowing him to generate and manipulate light to his every whim. The White Dragon Slayer’s element has been described as being holy, with Sting remarking that his opponents suffer the “judgment of the holy white”. Sting as a White Dragon Slayer has the ability to consume anything White as stated by Sting himself.
23. Rogue Cheney
Powers and Abilities: Shadow Dragon Slayer Magic allows Rogue to transform his body into a Shadow Dragon. This allows him to transform into a shadow, allowing him to crawl fast on the ground, walls, and ceilings. He can also use it to enter someone’s shadow for a sneak attack. As a Dragon Slayer, Rogue needs to consume anything Black.
