Fairy Tail: 10 best friendships in the series, ranked
In the land of Fiore, in the town of Magnolia, resides the most powerful magical guild in the land – Fairy Tail. This shonen manga turned into an animated series follows the members of Fairy Tail on their adventures, their blossoming friendships, and their perseverance in their struggles.
Since its release in 2009, this animated series has grown in popularity for its comedic, magical and fantasy aspects, as well as action and adventure. But most notable are the characters who show strength, loyalty, and love for their friends and guild mates who are practically like family. While there are quite a few friendships in this series, there are some more unforgettable than others.
ten Sting Eucliffe and Rogue Cheney are twin dragon slayers who shared similar experiences
With the titles of Dragon Slayers, these two formed a unique friendship that has bonded them for life. They shared similar idols, types of magic, and guilds, making sure they came close on every mission. However, during the Great Magic Games arc, the duo confessed that their dragon foster parents let the duo kill them, so they didn’t actually defeat a dragon.
Because they couldn’t even defeat Natsu, they decided to change their arrogant ways and become more like Natsu and emulate the forces he embodies – love, loyalty, and friendship. During Alvarez’s Empire Arc, Rogue even went so far as to share the last of his magical powers with Sting so that he could achieve White Shadow Dragon mode.
9 Justine freed, Evergreen and Bickslow reunite to protect their friend by forming the Thunder God tribe
The Thunder God Tribe is a group of three Fairy Tail wizards named Freed, Evergreen, and Bickslow. These three like to think of themselves as Laxas’ personal guards and often go on a quest with him to protect him. Because of this, the four became quite close, eventually becoming best friends.
They often stuck to themselves. However, after Laxas’ ex-communication, they started to open up more to the Guild. It’s here that viewers can see how close the members of the Thunder God Tribe were and the incredible bond they have.
8 Levy McGarden, Jet and Droy United to form Shadow Gear
Shadow Gear is made up of Levy, Jet and Droy who are members of the Fairy Tail guild. While these characters aren’t exactly the main characters in the show, their friendship, loyalty, and love for one another makes them worthy of the title character status.
Not only that, but they always support and encourage each other. When things look dire, Shadow’s members can always count on each other to keep going, even if they don’t feel strong enough or able to do so.
7 Gajeel Redfox and Panther Lily may not have been friends for a long time, but their bond is made of iron
Gajeel and Panther Lily did not grow up together. In fact, they met during the Extalia arc of this series. Panther Lily was the Commander of the Royal Army’s First Division and was considered a traitor to the other Exceeds because he viewed humans as their equals.
However, before they could truly become companions, they had to test their strength against each other to see who was stronger. But before their fight could end, Gajeel had to quickly escape to prevent the cannon from being fired and shocked Panther Lily by promising to come back and get him and take him home. From that moment on, they became quick and fiery friends.
6 Carla and Wendy Marvell are best friends who would do anything for each other
Like Happy, Carla was sent to Earth Land to kill Wendy. It was also a mission that she was unable to fulfill. However, she was afraid she would. Carla and Wendy’s relationship is a combination of best friends, mentor, and student. Carla does her best to help Wendy grow and become a more confident version of herself.
There is very little that these two wouldn’t do for each other. We often see them protecting or defending the other. Even on Extalia where Exceeds reign supreme, Wendy begged them to attack her rather than Carla, who was considered a traitor.
5 Gray Fullbuster and Lyon Vastia may be rivals, but their friendship is that of brotherhood
As the oldest friends and longtime rivals, these two are often seen bumping their heads and pitting themselves against each other. Even though their friendship ended after their master’s death, it slowly rebuilt after the quest on Galuna Island.
But beyond all this grief and misunderstandings, a bond was woven from an early age. Their bond is something more than a friendship – it’s the kind of bond between brothers. They have no problem pushing each other to be better wizards or pointing out each other’s faults. But they are also ready to protect and defend the other without thinking for a moment.
4 Lucy Heartfilia and her Heavenly Spirits have a friendship that has even moved the King of Heavenly Spirits
Due to the power they possess, Celestial Spirits have often been misused, mistreated and mistreated by Celestial Wizards. This is why some of them are shy, angry, or have become downright bad. But with Lucy, all she wanted was to be friends and bond with her heavenly spirits.
There’s a really heartbreaking episode between Lucy and Loki that really describes how far Lucy will go to save her friend. She doesn’t care if they are Celestial Spirits. For her, these are her friends and family, and she will do everything in her power to make sure they are safe and happy.
3 Natsu, Lucy, Happy, Gray, Wendy, Carla and Erza join forces and build friendship within Team Natsu
The Natsu team is made up of the main characters from Fairy Tail. This team is filled with different personalities, strengths, weaknesses, and magical abilities, but it’s a team that works harmoniously.
This is one of the reasons they are known as the strongest team in Fairy Tail. They are amazing friends who are incredibly loyal to each other, and their teamwork is perfect. However, Master Makarov was very concerned with this group formation because even though they are strong they are careless and are more than likely to destroy Magnolia and whatever city they visit during their quests.
2 Natsu Dragneel and Happy are more than friends, they are family
From the start, Natsu and Happy’s friendship was filled with love. It was an easy-going friendship that only comes from being inseparable friends for most of their lives. Happy is extremely loyal to Natsu, not only because Natsu is the one who raised him, but also because they share such an incredible bond.
Happy and Natsu are willing to risk anything to keep each other safe, even their lives. Despite revealing the truth about Happy’s initial goal to go to Earth Land, Natsu implicitly trusted his friend.
1 Mavis Vermillion, Precht, Warrod Sequen and Yuri Dreyar are the founders of the Fairy Tail guild
This friendship began when four people were looking for the Tenroe Jewel that had been stolen by the Magic Guild Blue Skull. But after a few mishaps and the four seeking to learn Zeref’s magic, things got worse when Yuri merged with a dragon and became possessed.
In order to save him, Mavis used an incomplete version of Law. As a result, she would never grow up. Due to these shared experiences and the sacrifice Mavis made, they said they will be friends forever. So much so that they decided to form the Fairy Tail guild and even fought together in wars.
