Fairy Tail is your equivalent of One Piece only that it is told in a world of mages, magic and dragons. Just like other highly popular manga, Fairy Tail consist of fantastically crafted characters, stunning library of magical spells as well as a beautifully written storyline and plot. Let’s take a look at some of the most powerful mages and wizards in this highly rated manga.
It’s always a dilemma when you had to choose between the King of Dragons and Wizards. In the end I concluded to put Acnologia at the very top of the Fairy Tail world.
Who can disagree when he can do this:
+ Rips apart other dragons – Fire Dragon Igneel
+ Tears away powerful dragon slayer – God Serena who single-handedly defeat four other Wizard Saints
+ Rip apart Gildarts’ left arm and leg – Fairy Tail’s elite S-Class mage
+ Fought against the whole Fairy Tail guild
Born as a first generation of dragon slayer, Acnologia has ALREADY KILLED MANY MANY DRAGONS before his transformation hundred of years ago. When someone like Magic King August, who remarked that Black Wizard Zeref needs the Fairy Heart to be on par with Acnologia, and Zeref himself sweating at the scene when Acnologia arrives at Tenrou Island, just tells you all about the might of this Black Dragon King.
A Dragon Slayer’s greatest weakness lies in being sensitive to motion sickness, if only someone can get Acnologia onto a ride.
Emperor of the Alvarez Empire and the most evil Mage of all time. Zeref is a child prodigy who mastered the darkest black arts even while he was still young.
This drove him into immortality when he mastered the Curse of Contradiction (aka Ankhseram Black magic). It is said that the immortal power allows him to never be killed, thus allowing him to also live for hundreds of years (400+ to be exact).
His geniuses intellect created the R-System (meant for the revival of his brother Natsu Dragneel) and the Eclipse Gate (which bridges time). His Books of Zeref created monsters called the Etherious, whose strongest demon was known as the Underworld King, Mard Geer Tartaros. Mard himself was powerful enough to be on par with the Celestial Spirit king.
Brother to Natsu Dragneel, Zeref was also mentor to the Wizard Saint Warrod, Hades and even Mavis Vermillion herself, where Mavis is already in the top five of Fairy Tail mages. His greatest weakness may well only be his shaky emotion.
Founder of Fairy Tail Guild, master tactician and utterly brilliant in the magical arts. She has already known illusion spells prior to meeting Zeref. Since using the powerful spell Law, Mavis too is cursed by the Ankhseram’s curse. However, her affection to Zeref got her “killed” when they shared a kiss.
Mavis is inventor to the legendary powerful spells “Three Great Fairy Magics” – Fairy Glitter, Fairy Sphere and Fairy Law. Her defense spell Fairy Sphere was so powerful that even Black Dragon King Acnologia’s Dragon Roar wasn’t able to break the shield protecting her beloved guild members.
Magic King August & God Serena
August – Sorry guys, I’m putting this man August before Jellal, Lexus and heck, even Gildarts. Why? Because this man can make even Makarov Dreyar, the current Guild Master of Fairy Tail and Ten Wizard Saints afraid, so much so that he even declares that the magic level is something he has never seen before. August is said to be the Magic King, being rumoured that he is able to use all types of spells, even ancient ones where Zeref may not be able to cast.
Let’s get abit of breakdown, there are Caster magic, Holder magic, Ancient as well as Lost and Legendary spells like Fairy Law and Fairy Glitter. This can amount to HUNDREDS of spells.
Just think, if he really knows Fairy Sphere, he could block Acnologia’s attack. (He has shown to easily protected his comrade Ajeel from Laxus’ lightning blast) and then use Fairy Glitter to fry the Black Dragon.
How powerful is Magic King August? We will know very soon.
Serena – On par with Magic King August stands God Serena. When you can single-handedly take on four members of the Wizard saints (the most powerful mages in the land of Isghar), you must be someone special. In God Serena, his magical power is just off the charts. First in strength on the Ten Wizard Saints list, and also commonly referred to as God of Ishgar.
I still cannot understand how he is able to defeat four Wizard Saints without even taking a scratch…. this is ridiculous. Obviously his Dragon Slaying magic helps. By the way, it’s Dragon Slaying magics (with the capital ‘S’).
He is the second generation of Dragon slayers (those who had Dragon Lacrima implanted into their bodies and are not taught their magic by real dragons), using the Hybrid Theory he was able to use eight different types of Dragon Slaying skills.
Each Dragon Slayer has only one type of slaying magic, so in simple math terms, God Serena is equivalent to eight Dragon slayers. Even Laxus Dreyar, grandchild to the famous powerful mage Makarov Dreyar, with one dragon slaying magic and is also a second generation Dragon Slayer, was able to defeat Juru who was ranked fifth on the Wizard Saints chart.
Managed to survive (although almost died) after encountering Acnologia, Gildarts just have to be in the top most powerful mage list. Hmm…why am I putting him after God Serena, is only that he hasn’t faced off with any Wizard Saints or extremely high level enemies yet. But make no mistake, Gildarts may very well be the strongest wizard Fairy Tail have ever produced after its first Guild master Mavis Vermillion.
A S-class mage for as long as the manga is in existence, he is powerful enough to take on 100-year quest. His Crash magic is able to destroy everything in his path. Did I also mention that Gildarts was supposed to be the fifth guild master, only to instantly return to the current master Makarov Dreyar because of his nonchalant attitude.
