*'''[[Raikô: Red Lightning]]''' ({{Ruby|雷汞・赩御雷|ライコウ・アカミカズチ}} ''Raikō: Akamikazuchi''): A technique crafted as an homage to his great-grandfather, [[Yuri Dreyar]], this particular lightning is notably different, as it is dark-red in color. Additionally, Laxus described it as being "lightning that goes beyond lightning," and used it to defeat Wall Eehto, who is normally unaffected by electricity, but utilized the unique, explosive property of this kind of lightning to punch through his [[Machias]] foe.<ref>Fairy Tail Manga: Chapter 473, Page 18</ref>

Laxus has been keeping the true nature of his Magic secret from all of his guildmates, even [[Makarov]], stating that he is fed up with his grandfather's lectures.<ref>Fairy Tail Manga: Chapter 124, Page 14</ref> As it turns out however, the Magic was actually implanted within him through the use of a [[Lacrima|Dragon Lacrima]] by [[Ivan Dreyar|his father]], as he was "frail" when he was younger, despite his magical potential.<ref name="Ch128, P19"/> This classifies Laxus as a [[Dragon Slayer#Second Generation|Second Generation Dragon Slayer]].<ref>Fairy Tail Manga: Chapter 265, Page 19</ref>

*'''[[Raging Bolt]]''' (レイジングボルト ''Rējingu Boruto''): Laxus raises his clenched fist in the air and chants "''Resounding through the air, the roar of thunder, plunge from the heavens and reap destruction!''." A large bolt of lightning will then descend upon the target.

*'''[[Lightning Dragon's Breakdown Fist]]''' (雷竜の内訳拳 ''Rairyū no Hōken''): Laxus gathers a large amount of lightning around one of his fists, bends the arm and then extends the fist forward in a punching motion. This prompts his Magic Seal to appear before him, from which an over-sized version of his fist, completely composed of lightning, is generated and rapidly fired towards the target. When it connects with the enemy, aside from inflicting damage upon them, the electricity stuns them, leaving them open to Laxus' subsequent attacks.<ref name="Ep48"/>

"I ain't got a clue what your goal is, but I'll hold you responsible for hurting my friends! My family is Fairy Tail! I will crush my family's enemies!"

Laxus Dreyar to Ivan Dreyar in "True Family"

Laxus Dreyar (ラクサス・ドレアー Rakusasu Doreā) is an S-Class Mage of the Fairy Tail Guild. He is the grandson of Fairy Tail's Guild Master, Makarov Dreyar, and the son of Raven Tail's Master, Ivan Dreyar. After Fairy Tail's disbandment, he joined the Blue Pegasus Guild along with the members of the Thunder God Tribe.[2] However, after the guild's reformation, he rejoined Fairy Tail again along with the Thunder God Tribe.[3]

Appearance

Laxus in x791

Laxus in X791

Laxus is a very tall and muscular young man with orange eyes (portrayed as blue/gray in the anime);[4] his blond hair is slicked back, its numerous spiky strands pointing backwards, though some falls down in a small tuft on his forehead. He has a distinct lightning bolt-shaped scar on his right eye, and much like his father and grandfather, his eyes have dark circles, with each of them possessing a single, prominent eyelash jutting outwards. Laxus is almost always seen wearing his signature "Sound Pod" model of Magic Headphones, with his favorite music being Classic Rock & Roll.[5] His black Fairy Tail stamp is located on his left rib cage, and is surrounded by a large tribal tattoo, which extends up to his left shoulder and covers part of the corresponding upper back.[6] During the initial usage of his Dragon Slayer Magic, Laxus gained a small amount of muscle mass and his forearms became covered in flesh-colored scales.[7] Neither physical trait was ever seen again,[8] though his canines became permanently sharp.[9]

Laxus Dreyar GMG

Laxus' appearance in the Grand Magic Games

In his first appearances, he donned a leopard-print, orange tunic with dark-lined sleeves reaching down below his elbows, and fur on the lower edges. He sported a bright red cape, tied on the front with a garish knot, which bore a large, lighter Fairy Tail symbol on the back, and loose, baggy dark pants tucked inside light metal greaves. Around his waist was a simple belt to which he attached the device linked to his Magic Headphones. He also had a small chain tied around his right wrist, and was initially portrayed smoking large cigars.[10] His outfit changed drastically later on; he started wearing more traditional and elegant attire, composed of a shirt bearing the same pattern as his old tunic, green pants held up by a belt with a design similar to his shirt's, sporting a buckle adorned by a large ace of spades, and simple shoes. He also donned a large, brown coat with light brown fur trimming around the neck and the sleeves' edges, draped over his shoulders like a cape.[11] In addition to this, he wasn't shown smoking anymore. Later, he switched to a dark shirt with thin, light-colored vertical pinstripes.[12] Alternatively, he was also shown bare-chested, with his upper body covered in bandages due to his injuries.[13]

On occasion, his outfits have appeared differently. With his original outfit, his pants have been portrayed as wine-red, and his coat as black with gray fur trimming.[14] During his attack on the guild, he had switched to a similar attire, but again differently colored: he retained the coat, but his shirt was purple and more wide-collared, and his pants bluish black, held up by a reddish belt.[15]

On Tenrou Island, he was shown wearing simple travel clothes, consisting of a large, hooded light cloak, a dark shirt under a long light jacket closed by a simple belt, loose dark pants ending below his knees (where each leg has a light band circling it), and boots reminiscent of his old greaves. He also has a small belt visible on his upper chest, crossing it horizontally.[16]

During the Grand Magic Games, he was shown wearing a sleeveless, black-colored muscle shirt with a turtleneck collar underneath his jacket with red pants and black shoes.[17]

Personality

Laxus arms his father in front of Makarov

Laxus defends his father in front of Makarov

In his youth, Laxus was extremely kind, very attached to his grandfather Makarov, and greatly admired Fairy Tail.[18][19] This, however, changed upon his father's excommunication, and Laxus' growing thought and suspicion that his fame was a result of being Makarov's grandson, and not of his own skills, made him eager to prove himself as a strong Mage in his own right.[20]

Laxus was initially portrayed as arrogant, overbearing, selfish, and prone to make fun of his own comrades. He believed himself to be the strongest member of Fairy Tail, and looked down on those he considered weak, heavily reprimanding their weakness and even resolving to hurt them whenever they stepped in his path.[21][22][23] Laxus seemed to care very little about his fellow guildmates, usually suggesting that they had to give him something in order to acquire his help; in one of such instances, when he was asked for help during the Fairy Tail-Phantom Lord confrontation, he also proved himself to be quite lecherous, offering to help his comrades out only if the "big-boobed" Lucy Heartfilia had become his girlfriend and Cana Alberona had stripped before him.[24]

Laxus fury

Laxus' fury

Not even his trusted Thunder God Tribe were spared of this treatment, as seen when Laxus almost hit Freed Justine with one of his lightning attacks for contradicting him.[25] The only things he appeared to truly care about were the strength and reputation of Fairy Tail, and he became enraged every time someone made fun of it.[26] During his battle with Natsu Dragneel and Gajeel Redfox, he was shown entering a berserker-like state, in which he showed the most ruthless side of himself, being willing to laugh off Makarov's possibly imminent death and to annihilate not only Fairy Tail, but also all of the inhabitants of Magnolia, for his goals.[27][28]

However, after his excommunication it appears that his attitude has changed. He seems far more light-hearted and serene, and apparently has grown fond of the guild in his current state. He was also willing to take all the responsibility of the crimes for himself, in order for the Thunder God Tribe to remain members of the guild, even encouraging them for the time being.[29] Even before his excommunication, Freed claimed that Laxus inherited not only Makarov's magical prowess, but also his heart for caring for comrades, something shown when none of his guildmates or the townspeople from Magnolia were affected by his Fairy Law.[30]

Laxus cries

Laxus cries

During the Fantasia parade, when Makarov, alongside the whole Fairy Tail, silently told Laxus that he would always be watching over him right before his departure, he shed tears and was ashamed of his previous actions.[31]

While he is a likely candidate to succeed his grandfather in leading Fairy Tail, Makarov initially believed Laxus' intentions were not yet right, something proven right when Laxus stated that, once he had inherited leadership of Fairy Tail, he would have eliminated all the weak members to create the strongest guild in the country.[32] This, however, seems to have changed after his expulsion and "redemption," as Makarov was seen entrusting his will to him from afar after his brief confrontation with Hades.[33]

As a Dragon Slayer, Laxus suffers from motion sickness, although he is extremely ashamed to admit it.[34]

Magic and Abilities

Lightning Magic

Laxus employing Lightning Magic in combat

Lightning Magic (雷系各種魔法 Kaminari Kei Kakushu Mahō): Laxus’ signature Magic,[1] over which he possesses great mastery. It allows him to produce and manipulate lightning and electricity at his will, having complete control over its manifestation.[35] He can attack with a single or both hands[36] to generate electrical discharges[37] at a distance or at close-range.[36] The effects of the blast depends on the user's own ability; Laxus, with his great mastery of Lightning spells, has proven himself capable of conjuring bolts of electricity that has either frail,[38] hot enough to heat a metal arm[15] or devastating power[39] to inflict damage. Through its use, Laxus can not only generate lightning from his body,[40] but also make it appear from almost anywhere to strike his opponents, taking them by surprise.[41] By generating electricity on different parts of his body, he’s capable of making his attacks in melee deadlier,[42] and of propelling himself around to gain extra momentum.[43] The bright light from his lightning can be also used to momentarily blind enemies.[44] In addition, much like other Elemental types of Magic, Lightning Magic allows Laxus to turn his own body into lightning, in order to evade enemy attacks, move around at high speed and strike every opponent crossing his path,[45] and take, or even block, lightning-based attacks without being injured.[46] After the year long time skip, Laxus has grown powerful enough to be able to effortlessly negate attacks from one of the Spriggan 12, Ajeel,[47][48] later causing need for him to be shielded by August from another attack which resulted in a massive explosion of electricity.[49]

Thunder Placa effect

Thunder Palace's effect

  • Thunder Palace (神鳴殿 Kaminari Den): Laxus creates multiple Lacrima filled with large amounts of Lightning Magic and suspended in the air in a circular formation. When all of the orbs are released at once, everything below and above their circle is struck by powerful lightning bolts equivalent to the number of Lacrima orbs. This spell has been described as being powerful enough to destroy the entire Magnolia Town, if all the orbs are used. Thunder Palace is also highly dangerous to nullify, posing a great risk to those who were to try and dispel it: if any Lacrima was to be destroyed by an outside force, the attacker would instantly be electrocuted through Organic Link Magic.[50]
Hades vs. Laxus

Laxus maneuvering in his lightning form

  • Lightning Body: Through the use of Lightning Magic, Laxus is capable of transforming his own body into electricity, turning himself into a lightning bolt, whose size can vary from mere, fast-moving sparks[45] to large pillars of lightning.[51] Together with the signature intangibility of Elemental Magic, which allows Laxus to let physical and magical attacks pass harmlessly through his body when he's transformed, this form also grants him some traits typical of real lightning: he's shown capable of freely moving around at high speed[45] and to travel over long distances, rapidly appearing at his destination from places away from sight as though as he was teleporting,[52] as well as to electrocute everything crossing his path,[53] with the voltage of his bodily electricity being high enough to wreak havoc throughout a large airship.[51] However Laxus only seems to be able to maintain this form while in motion. (Unnamed)
Laxus-power

Laxus activating his Dragon Slayer Magic

Lightning Dragon Slayer Magic (雷の滅竜魔法 Kaminari no Metsuryū Mahō): A form of Dragon Slayer Magic which gives Laxus the power and characteristics of a Lightning Dragon,[54] along with a Dragon Slayer's signature ability to eat external sources of his element to heal himself and regain power, thus making him immune to lightning.[55] His attacks, still based on electricity like those of his standard Lightning Magic, are shown to be very destructive; however, they may be redirected by metal objects acting as "lightning rods," as shown when Gajeel used his Iron Dragon's Club to save Natsu from Lightning Dragon's Heavenward Halberd. Laxus has been keeping the true nature of his Magic secret from all of his guildmates, even Makarov, stating that he is fed up with his grandfather's lectures.[56] As it turns out however, the Magic was actually implanted within him through the use of a Dragon Lacrima by his father, as he was "frail" when he was younger, despite his magical potential.[57] This classifies Laxus as a Second Generation Dragon Slayer.[58]

  • Raging Bolt (レイジングボルト Rējingu Boruto): Laxus raises his clenched fist in the air and chants "Resounding through the air, the roar of thunder, plunge from the heavens and reap destruction!." A large bolt of lightning will then descend upon the target. The full effect of this technique on an individual was not seen as Natsu Dragneel was pulled out of the way by Gajeel Redfox before Raging Bolt could connect with him.[59]
Lightning Dragon&#039;s Roar

Lightning Dragon's Roar

  • Lightning Dragon's Roar (雷竜の咆哮 Rairyū no Hōkō): Laxus' version of the trademark Dragon Slayer' attack, he generates lightning in his mouth and releases it in a concentrated, destructive blast, capable of destroying everything in a wide area in front of him. The special effect of this attack, aside from the high damage it causes, is that, even if the target survives, the lightning paralyzes them to a degree, leaving them numb and preventing them from escaping Laxus' following attack.[60] By moving his head around as he casts it, he can also employ this spell in an arched trajectory, in order to hit enemies which aren't directly in front of him. Unlike most other known Dragon Slayers, Laxus can apparently perform his Dragon's Roar without the need for particular preparations, something which makes it notably faster to use, as shown when he employed it against Hades[8] and Flare Corona.[61]
  • Lightning Dragon's Heavenward Halberd (雷竜・方天戟 Rairyū Hōtengeki): Laxus raises both of his hands in the air at his sides and generates electricity between their open, facing palms. This is rapidly shaped into the form of a massive spear composed of lightning, which Laxus proceeds to hurl at the enemy. According to Freed Justine, this spell is strong enough to kill a weakened Natsu, least if it hadn't been redirected at the last second by Gajeel, who diverted its trajectory on himself with his Iron Dragon's Club, using it as a makeshift lightning rod and thus taking the brunt of the attack. Gajeel was shown to be electrified on contact with the spear, but, despite suffering heavy damage, managed to survive. The weapon generated by such technique resembles a Ji, a traditional Chinese halberd, in appearance.[62]
Lightning Dragon&#039;s Breakdown Fist

Lightning Dragon's Breakdown Fist

  • Lightning Dragon's Breakdown Fist: Laxus gathers a large amount of lightning around one of his fists, bends the arm and then extends the fist forward in a punching motion. This prompts his Magic Seal to appear before him, from which an over-sized version of his fist, completely composed of lightning, is generated and rapidly fired towards the target. When it connects with the enemy, aside from inflicting damage upon them, the electricity stuns them, leaving them open to Laxus' subsequent attacks.[13]
  • Lightning Dragon's Jaw (雷竜の顎 Rairyū no Agito): Having knocked an opponent to the ground and then approached it, Laxus joins his hands and imbues them with a large amount of lightning. He then proceeds to strike the target down from above with his joined hands, causing it grievous damage; the remaining electricity is discharged in the surrounding area, heavily damaging it as well, and leaving both Laxus and the victim in a large crater. This technique is shown to be extremely powerful, defeating Tempester, a Demon from the Books of Zeref as well as a member of Tartaros' fearsome Nine Demon Gates, in a single shot,[64] and thus forcing the latter to unleash his Magical Barrier Particles.[65]
  • Dragon Slayer's Secret Art (滅竜奥義 Metsuryū Ōgi):
  • Roaring Thunder (鳴御雷(ナルミカヅチ) Narumikazuchi): Laxus charges forward and punches his opponent with a lightning imbued fist which releases a large amount of lightning upon impacting with the intended target, heavily damaging and electrocuting the target, whilst also pushing them away with immense force. This is first seen used to defeat Jura Neekis.[66]
Laxus&#039; Raikô Red Lightning

Laxus' Raikô: Red Lightning

Red Lightning Dragon Mode (モード赩雷竜 Mōdo Kakurairyū): After his fight against Wall Eehto, Laxus is capable of using the power of the Red Lightning Dragon. The dark-red lightning has been described as being "lightning that goes beyond lightning", and is noticeably more powerful and possesses unique properties, as it was able to kill Wall Eehto, a Machias who is extremely proud of his immunity to all forms of traditional lightning.[67]

  • Raikô: Red Lightning (雷汞・赩御雷(ライコウ・アカミカズチ) Raikō: Akamikazuchi): A spell crafted as an homage to his great-grandfather, Yuri Dreyar. Laxus creates a special kind of dark-red lightning that he coats his fist with before executing an empowered punch.[68]
Laxus physics projection

Laxus' Thought Projection

Thought Projection (思念体 Shinentai): Laxus can create a Thought Projection of himself, using one to threaten Makarov and the other members of Fairy Tail who remained trapped together with the petrified girls due to Freed's Jutsu Shiki during the S-Class Mage's attempt to to take over the guild. Such intangible, faithful image of himself, impervious to any attack, allows him to communicate over long distances without the need to leave his location or expose himself to threat.[69]

Organic Link Magic (生体リンク魔法 Seitai Rinku Mahō): Laxus is capable of using this peculiar type of Magic, which allows him to link any type of damage inflicted upon given targets upon those who attacked them. His shown employment of it comes with his Thunder Palace spell, which generates a very large number of floating Lacrima orbs filled with Lightning Magic: through the use of Organic Link Magic, such orbs can instantly electrocute those who were to destroy them, striking them down with powerful lightning orbs, making the whole technique risky to nullify.[70]

Laxus Fairy Law

Laxus casting Fairy Law

Fairy Law (妖精の法律(フェアリーロウ) Fearī Rō): A legendary Magic and one of Fairy Tail's three great Magics, Fairy Law uses extremely destructive light to attack everyone the caster considers an enemy in a wide area.[71] This rare technique is initiated by Laxus releasing an immense amount of Magic Power and then shaping it into the form of bright light between his hands;[72] such light is subsequently released into a wave around him at the command "Fairy Law, activate!." Laxus made claim to have mastered Fairy Law, and, when employed by him, the Magic actually engulfed the entire Magnolia Town with its light, going past the building Laxus was in and damaging it in the process. He attempted to use this Magic against all of the Fairy Tail members scattered throughout the city, as well as the citizens themselves, during the final part of his battle against Natsu and Gajeel. However, despite being proficiently cast, the Magic failed, due to Laxus still considering such people his comrades in his heart.[73]

Jutsu Shiki (術式 Jutsu Shiki): Laxus learned from Freed how to employ a Jutsu Shiki barrier after becoming infected by Magical Barrier Particles. Rather than using the spell as a defensive barrier, Laxus uses it to cancel out the effect of the Magical Barrier Particles within him, that would otherwise inhibit his abilities.[74]

Laxus fighting in melee

Laxus fighting in melee

Master Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Aside from his powerful, ranged Magic attacks, Laxus has shown a penchant for melee fighting, demonstrating great mastery in unarmed combat, being strong enough to easily keep the upper hand against Natsu for most of their fight,[75] to fend off both him and Gajeel at the same time[76] and to strike Hades different times in rapid succession with him being unable to retaliate.[77] His fighting style is an offensive, brutal and straightforward one, relying on a great variety of punches, kicks and even headbutts,[78] which are shown to be both strong and fast; such moves can also be combined with techniques from his Lightning Magic with extreme fluency to great effect:[79] using this trademark Magic of his, Laxus can create lightning orbs around his arms and legs before connecting punches and kicks, increasing their striking power in a way similar to Natsu's fire,[42] move around much faster, propelling himself towards his opponents, by surrounding his entire body with lightning,[77] and empower his connecting strikes by summoning forth lightning from the sky to accompany his motions.[61]

Angry Laxus

Laxus releasing his Magic Power

Immense Magic Power: Laxus possesses an immense level of Magic Power, which, befitting his Magic and theme, manifests itself in the form of electricity. This can appear from his body in various amounts, from simple sparks, when he wants to intimidate opponents or is annoyed,[80] to a potent lightning aura around him, which damages the surrounding area, when he's enraged. In the latter state, lightning even starts to appear from his eyes and mouth.[81] He was the only member of Fairy Tail (aside from Makarov and the back then absent Gildarts) shown capable of resisting Mystogan's Sleep Magic, with even Erza and Mirajane being affected by it (though the latter was weakened at the time), and is as a result one of the few people to have seen the former S-Class Mage's face.[82] In addition, during his own fight with Mystogan, he displayed the ability to dispel even high-leveled illusions, seeing through the opponent's Skyscraper spell and nullifying it without much effort while mocking Mystogan for using such stupid Magic against him.[83] After Fairy Tail's disbandment, Laxus' immense Magic Power increased enough for him to casually cast a lightning attack to disperse Ajeel’s Sands of Death[84] and a direct attack resulting in a huge explosion that made August feel the need to protect Ajeel from it.[85] According to Wall Eehto's analysis, Laxus is still one of the individuals who have the strongest Magic Power within Fairy Tail despite being afflicted by a large quantity of Magical Barrier Particles.[86]

Immense Durability: Laxus demonstrated extreme durability, being sent crashing through a wall and landing without a flinch or a minor injury,[87] suffering no damage at all from Mystogan's Sacred Song.[88] and emerging unharmed from most of Natsu and Gajeel's attacks during their battle, continuing to fight as if nothing happened, displaying an amount of resilience incredible even for a Dragon Slayer.[89][90] He was also able to survive a full-power attack from Hades after lending all of his Magic Power to Natsu, and thus being struck by the spell in all of its astonishing might; a feat which was commented upon by the nearby watchers.[91] Employing his Dragon Slayer Magic-enhanced lungs, Laxus managed to barely survive inhaling a large quantity of Magical Barrier Particles, which are noted for being deadly even in small doses.[92] Laxus is also able to survive and still standing after being hit by Erza's Fire Dragon Slayer Magic and Ice Devil Slayer Magic empowered attack.[93]

Immense Strength: Laxus possesses a large amount of physical strength, being capable of pummeling and overwhelming someone as physically strong as Natsu, even without his lightning.[94] He was also able to easily block a kick from Erza Scarlet with a single hand.[95] Laxus' attacks are strong enough to destroy Erza's Lightning Empress Armor in one hit[96] and push her back multiple times for every attack he releases, much to Erza's surprise.[97]

Immense Endurance: Laxus has shown to possess a vast amount of physical endurance, being able to easily keep the upper hand against Gajeel Redfox and Natsu Dragneel, two fellow Dragon Slayers, at the same time after holding his own against Erza Scarlet and Mystogan, two fellow S-Class Mages, all the while showing almost no signs of weariness despite having cast powerful spells the likes of Thunder Palace and Fairy Law in rapid succession.[98] Also, during his fight with Hades, after giving up all of the Magic Power he had within himself at the time to Natsu, he was capable of standing back on his feet just a little later to attack the opponent again.[99]

Immense Reflexes: Laxus has displayed extremely sharp reflexes and a high degree of speed and agility: he was shown capable of evading a combo attack from Natsu and Gajeel, in which the former's fire acted as a medium to greatly enhance the latter's attack speed, without much effort, and could also keep up with the two of them in a fast exchange of blows, managing to parry their melee assaults and at the same time to counter-attack with his spells.[100] He was also able to react to Hades' Magic chains fast enough to avoid their blows, making the chain Hades threw at him miss by a margin and subsequently ducking the gigantic globe Grimoire Heart's Master pulled back at him.[101] His speed was enough for him to easily defeat the entirety of the Raven Tail guild's top members, including his father Ivan Dreyar, with Laxus rapidly reacting to his opponents' blows and then counter-attacking with his Magic and with melee moves;[102] the same happened during his confrontation with Tempester, and this while the latter was boosting his speed through the use of his Curse.[103]

Equipment

Magic Headphones: Laxus used to be seen wearing Magic Headphones on his ears, which allows him to store music in a Magic Database and listen to it as he wishes. However, he has stopped wearing them ever since the Grand Magic Games. His model is a Sound Pod, possessing prominent spikes on the headphones and having its Magic sound player separated from them, being attached to his belt and linked to the headphones by a cable.[1]

Trivia

Laxus eye color

Laxus' different eye color in the manga (left) and the anime (right)

  • In Volume 32's extra content, Mashima provided the battle statistics for 31 of the 40 X791 contestants in the Grand Magic Games. The stats, however, were provided not from Mashima's point-of-view as the author but from the view point of Sorcerer Magazine reporter Jason. Which explains why some stats are missing and why others may be inaccurate. According to Jason from the Sorcerer Magazine, during his participation in the Grand Magic Games of X791, Laxus' stats are:[106]
  • After Laxus' victory over Jura there were some rumblings in the Magic Council that Laxus should now be endorsed as a Wizard Saint, but after his boorish behavior was pointed out, those rumblings soon subsided.[107]
