Cancer, "The Giant Crab" (キャンサー Kyansā) is a Celestial Spirit that is one of the 12 Golden Zodiac Keys. His key is currently owned by Lucy Heartfilia.


Fail:Cancer Trimming Wolf Fang.jpg

Cancer dresses in a way reminiscent of a hairdresser, His hair is black and braided in red cornrows that end in a shape that resembles crab's pincers. Like Warren Rocko, he has thick lips. He always wears a blue striped shirt and dark trousers with two aquamarine stripes each side, also wearing boots in his feet. In his pants there's a ring chain in the right pocket and a hairdresser tools' bag in the left side of his belt. He wears a golden necklace and it's commonly seen with his two main weapons: Scissors. The color of his eyes is unknown because Cancer always wears sunglasses with green lens. He also has six crab legs that appear from his back.

During Lucy's fight against Flare Corona, Cancer appeared with a different outfit. He now wears a coat designed with Cancer's symbols on it. Also he wears shoes instead of boots, and his scissors are larger and more rectangular. Despite a less sharp format, the scissors were able to cut a very powerful Hair Magic spell.[1]


Fail:Cancer ebi.jpg

Cancer has a very "cool" personality, he isn't very emotional or hotheaded.

Happy first thought that Cancer would end his sentences with the word -kani (crab); however, Cancer actually says -ebi (shrimp) at the end of his sentences.[2] This shocked and displeased Happy. In the anime, Cancer acts differently in the presence of Erza. He acts in a gentlemanly manner and ends his sentence with -choki, meaning snip instead of -ebi. Erza made this suggestion during the struggle against Eisenwald.[3] Her "not abolishing the opposition" and strict personality made an impression on Cancer, so much so that he even gave her a bouquet of roses.[4]


Cancer used to be owned by Layla Heartfilia. Before her death, she passed on her keys to different owners. Eventually, when Lucy Heartfilia became older, she was given Cancer's key, along with Aquarius's key.[5]

On the seventh of July, Cancer is summoned to seal the Eclipse Gate with the other twelve Ecliptic Zodiac after both Lucy and Yukino combine their Magic power to save Crocus. After appearing, Cancer and his fellow Spirits fly straight at the Gate, succeeding in pushing the two doors shut and thus preventing any more Dragons from passing through.[16]

Magic and AbilitiesSunting

Fail:Cancer attacking Eisenwald members.gif

Enhanced Speed: Cancer appears to be remarkably dexterous and fast, being capable of performing swift hand movements, and wielding his signature scissors with great speed: he has repeatedly proven himself able to cut down enemies' hair with extreme accuracy, not leaving a single snick on their head. He does it in a single instant, appearing as though as he struck them only once, while in fact he has performed a number of separate cuts.[17] Cancer's rapidity is enough for him to shave several opponents in mere seconds, not leaving them the time to fight back.[7][9]

Immortality: As a Celestial Spirit, Cancer cannot die, unless he is somehow forced to stay in the Human World.[18] Furthermore, as his owner's Magic Power grows stronger, so does Cancer.

Scissors: Cancer is Lucy's hairdresser because of his weapon which seems to be two large pairs of scissors, with crab-claw design handles, which he can also use to cut hair. Lucy uses Cancer to cut her hair or to make a new hairstyle for her or her enemies. Cutting an enemy's hair seems to knock him out.[7] It is also shown that his scissors are sharp enough to cut through weapons such as swords and hammers.[3]

After Lucy powered up by unlocking her "Second Origin," Cancer apparently gets a new, different pair. This pair of scissors is longer, with a square-tip, and doesn't have a crab-claw design on the handle.[1]
