Joey Fullborn (ジョイ・フルボーン Joi Furubōn) is a former Mage of the Fairy Tail Guild. He joined around the same time as Chico C Hammitt and Wan Chanzi, and therefore he and Wan are often partners and rivals.[1] After the re-establishment of Fairy Tail in X792, he no longer returned as a member of the Guild.[2]


Joey in manga

Joey is an extremely muscular Mage that has honed just about every visible muscle he has. He used to have a tattoo on his chest that had the letters 'K', 'S', and a symbol of a broken heart. However, in order to join a body-building contest, he washed it off with a potion.[1] He has short black hair and wears a pair of long orange pants.

His first appearance wasn't as muscular as it is right now, and his chest also had the kanji '愛’ tattoo, in addition to the other letters and symbols.


Phantom Lord arc

Joey during the Fairy Tail-Phantom Lord war

Joey is first seen together with Nab when the guild quakes, signalling the arrival of Phantom Lord's walking guild.[3] Joey is seen watching with the rest of the guild as Jose Porla unleashes his Shades after Erza takes the brunt of Jupiter.[4] Joey is later seen looking up as the Phantom Lord guild transforms into Phantom MK II.[5] When all members of the Element 4 are defeated, Joey is seen watching as the Phantom MK II begins to collapse.[6] He then listens as Jose reveals that his guild has captured Lucy.[7]

After the Fairy Tail-Phantom Lord war, Joey is surprised as the Rune Knights arrive and interrogate all of the members on the scene.[8] Joey then witnesses Erza arguing with Laxus.[9]

Battle of Fairy Tail arc

Joey fighting Wan

Joey listens to Mirajane sing, along with the other guild members, only for Natsu and Gajeel to start an all-out brawl.[10] Joey is later present at the Miss Fairy Tail contest when Laxus and his bodyguards arrive and start the Battle of Fairy Tail.[11]

During the Battle of Fairy Tail, Joey battles Wan Chanzi.[12] Later, along with Wan Chanzi, he listens to Erza explaining about the Thunder Palace and presumably destroys one of the Thunder Lacrimas.[13]

When Laxus arrives at the guild, Joey expresses his displeasure along with Wan and Mikuni Shin.[14]

Oración Seis arc

Joey, along with the rest of the guild, listens to Mirajane as she explains all about Dark Guilds. He and Wan underestimate the power of the Oración Seis Guild after it is revealed that the Dark Guild consists of only a few powerful members.[15]

Edolas arc

Joey during Wendy's welcome party

Joey, along with the rest of the guild, happily welcomies Wendy and Carla when they join Fairy Tail.[16] He is then seen at Wendy and Carla's Welcome Party.[17] Later, he is sucked through the Anima and turned into Lacrima along with the rest of the guild members and the whole town of Magnolia.[18][19] However, they are freed thanks to Mystogan who returns everyone back to Earth Land (excluding Gray, Natsu, Lucy, Wendy, Erza, Gajeel, Carla, and Happy), through the Reverse Anima Process; and so he, like all the rest of the guild and Magnolia, is unaware of the events of Edolas.[20]

Tenrou Island arc

After the other Mages return from Edolas, Joey celebrates with the rest of the guild because of Lisanna's return and laughs when he learns about the personality of Natsu's Edolas counterpart.[21]

Grand Magic Games arc

Joey attends Day 5 of the Grand Magic Games, sitting in the audience alongside the rest of the Fairy Tail Guild. During Laxus' battle against Jura Neekis and Orga Nanagear, Joey watches on in awe as Jura makes quick of Orga.[22]

Joey is seen after the Grand Magic Games have come to a close. The King of Fiore accumulates all of the Mages from all Guilds to acknowledge them of the impending disaster and what the Kingdom plans to do to combat against the calamity. The King continues on to request for their assistance against the remaining Dragons who survive from the Eclipse Plan, to which Joey and the rest of the Mages all agree in unison.[23]

Magic and Abilities

Muscle Speak (マッスルスピーク Massuru Supīku): A type of supporting Magic. By chanting some incantations, he can increase the muscle mass of his surrounding allies. However, to increase the efficiency, the Caster's body must also be well-toned. Thus, he has yet to miss even one day of exercise.[1]


  • His teeth tend to fall off without much warning.[1]
  • His appearance is based on Hiro Mashima's former assistant, Yui Ueda, who is also quite muscular. Even the frequency of daily muscle training is about the same.[1]
