X791 or X784

Hey guys. Just want to know what you guys think. Should we use the X791 pictures of the characters who aged after the time skip or would you guys like to keep them as it is. Or would you like both of them to appear (maybe we can work something out xD) Tutles Sig 21:17, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

Look at the dragons of design future jobs XD Bickslow Doll 2 Relikz Talk (Talk Page) 21:19, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

NOOOOOO! This is my baby! I won't allow anyone to touch it! Tutles Sig 21:22, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

We won't change any pictures, just try to incorporate a switch template to it Bickslow Doll 2 Relikz Talk (Talk Page) 21:25, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

why so serious sad? Bickslow Doll 2 Relikz Talk (Talk Page) 21:30, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

I don't want my template ruined. xD Hahahahaha. Maybe just use a table similar to the ones used in opening pages? One for the current and one for the X791 pics. Tutles Sig 21:32, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

what table? you mean tabs? Bickslow Doll 2 Relikz Talk (Talk Page) 21:35, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

Yep. Tutles Sig 21:36, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

I don't think it'll work. Bickslow Doll 2 Relikz Talk (Talk Page) 21:38, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

A switch template seems unnecessary. This isn't the characters article, it's a hub page for all characters.   Iam...  21:40,3/24/2012  JakuhōRaikōben  

That's why I'm asking them which pic they prefer. Tutles Sig 21:41, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

I'll think of something then! Just don't change the template until I give up xD Tutles Sig 21:40, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

I prefer the X791 pictures only if they are of good quality.   Iam...  21:42,3/24/2012  JakuhōRaikōben  

which some aren't Bickslow Doll 2 Relikz Talk (Talk Page) 21:43, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

If they aren't then we can just wait until there is one of better quality, there's no big rush.   Iam...  21:45,3/24/2012  JakuhōRaikōben  

Hello, I am searching for a fitting immage profile of Gajeel for as he is currently (as of X791). Can someone please help me in it?--Jeraru Ferunandesu (talk) 14:58, December 19, 2014 (UTC)

Volume 32 Bonus Section

The Bonus Section of Volume 32 revealed the name of some GMG constetants, so I'm adding it. Please do not undo this edit. All names I'm adding are official source, and if you don't believe me here is all the bonus pages included on the volume so you can check: Coutinho305 15:57, April 20, 2012 (UTC)

Lullaby and Deliora

Aren't they considered characters in the series? Just like the Dragons? Facebook Agent 007 13:00, May 12, 2012 (UTC)

We should add them in this page as "Zeref's Demons"... Dream1912 (talk) 14:18, July 23, 2012 (UTC)

Erza's image

Thoughts on replacing the old Erza image with one of the proposals? She's facing forward, has neutral expression and wears her new armor. If you guys agree, it could be replaced on the main page too =p Miskos3 Message 07:56, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

Uhhmm... I say we delete Prop 1 and go with the Close Up one... Not really much point for keeping the first one...

  BHappy ChibiJ   08:06,6/2/2012

Yup. The first prop will be deleted since it'd be a waste to have it in the wiki RelikzBickslow Doll3Talk 18:53, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

But there are articles using it... Herme18:58,6/2/2012

Tell me Reli, since when does 3 people equal consensus? I oppose it. Erza's head looks small and weird and so does her facial expression.   Rai  Talk     19:05,6/2/2012

lol you guys are late, I'm not talking about the current. I already deleted the first prop! It was the proposed just farther away RelikzBickslow Doll3Talk 19:53, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

Lol sorry, didn't even saw the prop 1 Herme19:59,6/2/2012

I know, I'm talking about the portal template you changed.   Rai  Talk     19:55,6/2/2012

what portal template? *shifts eyes left and right* RelikzBickslow Doll3Talk 19:58, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

C-c-combo breaker! :D By the way, if anyone's interested in it, this was the deleted proposal. Miskos3 Message 20:10, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

I didn't mistake his gender, that's the nickname I gave him. -_-   Rai  Talk     20:30,6/2/2012


Shouldn't you change Jude heartfilla to dead?

You can check on the status guide for the colors. If the color is gray then it means that the character is Deceased or Dead. As for Jude in Love and Lucky Guild, the background clearly states that it is gray. KOKOAraña Anime SquareROCHAS 13:37, November 2, 2012 (UTC)

Layla Heartfilia

I'm a bit confused here. The format say that the status on each category determine the last status the character was. Then for Layla, isn't it suppose to be Left for Love&Lucky but Deceased in Heartfilia Kozern??? Messithemesser (talk) 23:21, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

Yup. Someone changed it for some reason RelikzBickslow Doll3Talk 22:52, November 15, 2012 (UTC)


In the Tower of Heaven, Rob still had his guild mark; meaning he was still a member. Shouldn't we change his status to "Deceased" since it was shown that he died saving Erza? FallenShadow

Hm yeah he was a member when he passed away, so I guess his status should be changed
.:Umy:.Juvia'sPictureForUmneiSignature 11:00, January 3, 2013 (UTC)

Laxus also had his guild mark when he was excommunicated :\ RelikzBickslow Doll3Talk 20:51, January 3, 2013 (UTC)

Lector and Jiemma

About this "Unknown" edit... Lector just disappeared, so in my opinion his status would be unknown. That's not ignoring her words, we just literally aren't sure what happened to him. And he isn't actually that much "active" right now...

About Jiemma, I did not mean his death, rather his status, whether he still is or isn't in the guild, but I won't push on this one. Sligneris (talk) 15:09, February 14, 2013 (UTC)

In terms of guild membership, Lector has not been confirmed to have left the guild in any capacity. He hasn't resigned or been excommunicated and while he isn't around anymore, he's still confirmed to be alive by Minerva. While we don't know what exactly happened to him and where he is, Minerva's statement that he's alive is enough to confirm him as such. As such, until he's confirmed otherwise, he is still a member and he is still alive.

Jiemma, though beaten by Sting, was shown alive after the initial blast. While Minerva did say that the guild had no need for losers, whether or not he's actually been removed from his post has not been stated. As such, without a statement, we consider him to still be a member and he's definitely still alive unless shown otherwise.

Prisoned characters

There is an subcategory to "Others" named "In Prison". However, it does not contain all characters known to be prisoned, like most of the Eisenwald or Oracion Seis guild or Jellal Fernandes for that matter. Should it be fixed? Sligneris (talk) 15:33, February 14, 2013 (UTC)

Support Support - I'm for the change. Miskos3 Message 21:27, March 31, 2013 (UTC)

Neutral Neutral - I dunno. It doesn't feel like the Natsu we know. He looks kinda angry. :/
Chibi Sting Mega ♦ Talk Chibi Cobra   21:31, March 31, 2013 (UTC)

Neutral Neutral - Agree with Mega here. The current one has an odd expression which I don't really like but the proposal is angry which is not really typical Natsu. A more normalized expression would be nice.--GodPray21:33,3/31/2013

Hmm, I'd call it a 'serious' look rather than an 'angry' one. Nevertheless, I thought his expression was better and more suited for a potential profile image. Moreover, in the proposal, he is looking straight to the camera, in contrary to the odd angle in the current one. Considering these factors, I thought that the proposal, while not perfect, is better than the current one. 'Less worse' out of the two, if you put it that way. -- Miskos3 Message 22:26, March 31, 2013 (UTC)

Support Support - I like it more than the current. Plus he tends to have that expression in every other Opening (lol)
.:Umy:.Juvia'sPictureForUmneiSignature 22:35, March 31, 2013 (UTC)

Support Support - I'm really on the borderline here, but I'm going to support this, solely because, like Misk said, the proposal is the "less worse" of the two.
Sting Eucliffe ChibiWrath-kun Rogue Cheney Chibi 09:03, April 1, 2013 (UTC)

Neutral Neutral - Gray's one is grumpy too y'know. I want a change,but I feel it doesn't fit the goofy personality. Actually I feel the same with Juvia's pic, now she is a lot less serious.
--Fairy Tail Grand Master<F.T.G.M. >Mavis AvatarAcnologia Avatar 16:24, April 1, 2013 (UTC)

Support Support - The present picture isn't bad, but I prefer the new one RC

Support Support - I like it better. Natsu looks more serious. The present one is good as well, though.
AppleTalkErza Anime S2 19:29, April 2, 2013(UTC)

Support Support - I agree in this one he is much much more serious. Lilac CliveRin Kagamine As a model 02/04/13 20:19:26

Support Support - I'll support, but I think we can do better. The proposal is not "serious" it's angry, imo. But the current makes him look so annoyingly dopey that anything would be an improvement.   Rai  Talk     01:30,4/3/2013

Greetings, men, women, kids of all ages... things. Natsu and Lucy got new pictures in which they both contain their new outfits. Erza, on the other hand, still has that old one with that creepy smile. In addition, in the old pic she is not looking exactly towards the camera. I propose a change!

Support Support - Obviously, it has my full support. Erza is looking directly at the camera, has the same expression she is known for, and it is updated. I know Gray still has the old one, okay? >_>
Chibi Sting Mega ♦ Talk Chibi Cobra   17:18, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

Support Support - Totally fits her character.
User Page User Talk 17:50, 5/9/2013

Neutral Neutral - The setting of the proposal is at night, so Erza's color scheme is slightly darker than normal (different shade of red and skin color) but I don't mind the change
:Umnei:Juvia&#039;sPictureForUmneiSignature 18:17, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

Neutral Neutral - Creepy smile!?!?! D:< Ummy's right. Erza's colors have been a bit changed, but at the same time, the image is fine; I mean, looking forward and all... It's also too close in my opinion... so >___> Red SigHearts 2:30AM, May 10, 2013

Oppose Oppose - The image is supposed to detail what she looks like and does a bad job at that due to the odd color scheme. Her name is Erza SCARLET and adding a picture of her without Scarlet hair is just bad--GodPray18:34,5/9/2013

Support Support - Eh...I was really close to being neutral, but that won't get us anywhere. :/
Even if the colors are a little off, nearly anything is an improvement from the first one.
WrathRogue ChibiZero 18:36, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

Oppose Oppose - Due to the colors I'm also against it, though how about cutting the head out of the following picture as an alternative? ... assuming that doesn't go against the image policy cutting the head out is a matter of less than a minute.

While she's not wearing armor in the picture, it does have the right colors and she looks directly at the camera. NoNickNeeded (talk) 19:06, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

Oppose Oppose -Not her real hair color. RelikzBickslow Doll3Talk 19:09, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

Oppose Oppose - Considering the other images we have there, this one will look really out of place. King of Uncool 20:12,5/9/2013 

Oppose Oppose - The second one would be perfect if not for the color change and the fact that it cuts off Erza's head. The smile in the current one is not creepy. >_>   Rai  Talk     22:13,5/9/2013

Oppose Oppose' - Wrong hair colour, get a pic that is set during the day--Quoth The Raven "Nevermore" ' 01:13, May 10, 2013 (UTC)

About adding the movie characters

Okay, so The characters in the movie should be in this list too. So should a new section be made like movie only characters or just should they be just added in the others section? --I always smile 。◕‿◕。 (talk) 17:11, June 7, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, a new section can be made. :)
MegaPanchamTalk 17:21, June 7, 2013 (UTC)

Adding future Characters?

Should links to the future Character's pages be added here too, rather than having to click the present character and search for the "counterpart" line there?

NoNickNeeded (talk) 12:24, July 13, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, they should since we are counting them as different characters

Consider the FT movie characters in the Characters article?

Is it fine to consider Carbuncle and its top four members into the Characters page including Kriem, Geese, Kalard, Eclair and Momon? Because they already appeared in the FT movie.--AtlasFlame206 (talk) 08:33, August 6, 2013 (UTC)

They already have their own character pages, though currently they are only accessible from the movie's article.

Though considering that the characters from the OVAs and omakes (particularly the cross-over characters that are clearly outside the actual story line) are also listed here, I think the movie characters should also be linked here.

NoNickNeeded (talk) 08:51, August 6, 2013 (UTC)

Text shadow

ugh >_< the text shadow looks really bad and makes it kinda unreadable,I suggest to remove the text shadow >_<.--Roranoa zoro Talk|||04:32,1/27/2014

I've actually never liked it. But its sort of necessary cuz the letters in the colors for Former and Deceased would blend too much into the background. Bickslow Doll Bickslow Doll3Bickslow Doll 2 04:42, January 27, 2014 (UTC)

Minor questions

Just some minor questions rolled into one:

  1. Siegrain is 'Removed' on the Ten Wizard Saints page, implying excommunication, but 'Former' here. Is his betrayal and obvious, though not official, departure from the organization considered 'Former' or the fact that there was obviously no formal resignation, but rather a forceful striking off of his name from the organization considered 'Excommunication'? /me has no idea about the 'Former' status under the Magical Council too.
  2. Jose was 'Excommunicated' rather than 'Former' in the 'Ten Wizard Saints' ... right?
  3. Lamy should be alive, right?
  4. If it doesn't contradict the manga, can anime be used as reference? Episode 40 shows Fukuro saving Vidaldus and Ikaruga, both alive.
  5. Layla left Love & Lucky and died while affiliated to the Heartfilia Konzern, shouldn't she be 'Former' for Love & Lucky rather than 'Deceased'? She's already shown as 'Deceased' for Heartfilia Konzern. If otherwise, shouldn't Precht and Rob be 'Deceased' under Fairy Tail?
  6. Same as above for Zoldeo in the Heartfilia Konzern.
  7. Warrod Sequen is currently affiliated to the Ten Wizard Saints where his most recent status can be shown, is it really necessary to keep him under 'Others'?
  8. Lullaby is not deceased, but imprisoned. So shouldn't the status be 'Alive' or 'Unknown'?
  9. We've got quite a few Demons now, should there be a section created for them? Something like this? If the section is approved, can Lullaby and Deliora be removed from 'Others'?

Spin-off characters

Is there any taste to add the characters who appear in any spin-off? Why, I think there IS any.--Jeraru Ferunandesu (talk) 20:27, December 13, 2014 (UTC)


Is it necessary to add Gajeel to the now-disbanded Raven Tail as a former (defected) member?--Jeraru Ferunandesu (talk) 17:41, December 15, 2014 (UTC)

Hey, why don't we just replace Gajeel's profile with an updated one?--Jeraru Ferunandesu (talk) 19:38, July 10, 2015 (UTC)

What do you mean? Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben 19:51,7/10/2015
I think he refers to Gajeel's infobox image, and that he wishes an updated image. I kinda agree with him, the current image is not very good imo. Onfire.gif Wonder Talk 21:12, July 10, 2015 (UTC)
I'm not aware of there being any good replacement, though. If anything comes up in the new anime or otherwise, I'm all up for a change. I've wanted Gajeel's pic to change for a good while now anyways. Miskos3 Message 21:18, July 10, 2015 (UTC)
Should we bring attention to this perhaps? To see if there's anyone who knows of a better option? Onfire.gif Wonder Talk 21:26, July 10, 2015 (UTC)

I... have no opinion. :D Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben 22:15,7/10/2015

--Ergo Logos (talk) 16:20, January 15, 2015 (UTC)Remove the relationship sessions on the character pages. They are messy and incomplete: In some of them, we can clearly see evidence people trying to push for their romantic pairings. Since our character synopsis articles are so long anyways, people can figure out the relationships between the characters themselves. Either that, or we should invest time in updating the current relationship pages to reflect their portrayal as of the Tartarus Arc.

We write what we see. Do I personally think there should be relationship sections? No, not really. I think they're annoying (ironic, coming from me). But what we have written is based on what we see, so any implications that are given are ones that are given to us first from the author. We will not remove the relationship sections. If you are adamant on doing so, then open a forum about it.

Previous Things

ok just thought id put this here cos not sure where else as it really just applies to all characters, also its really probably just me being picky but still. ok so can we add the (s) onto previous team and affiliations, its on previous partner(s) and relative(s) and a lot of characters do have multiple past affiliations and teams within them so it wouldnt be a redundant addition Hewy (: (talk) 21:46, September 8, 2015 (UTC)

X792 appearance change?

Can we update the X792 appearance change to all the characters?

Zeref as Spriggan?

Why is Zeref only linked as "Spriggan" on this page? Wouldn't it make more sense to find him under the name that he's more known for (for the audience), than this obscure name that's barely ever used in the series? NoNickNeeded (talk) 08:04, February 20, 2016 (UTC)

From my understanding, it's 'cuz:

  • Zeref fits only under the Alvarez Empire section right now.
  • Zeref is known as Spriggan in the Empire and we try to have the names and images be appropriate for the sections they are placed in. Doranbolt and Siegrain in MC, Racer and Angel in OS, etc.

I'm not saying the change shouldn't be made, just pointing out the reasons behind the current situation. --Sane Lunatic (talk) 12:51, February 20, 2016 (UTC)

I'm not even sure where to put him, Others section? Miskos3 Message 12:53, February 20, 2016 (UTC)

He's already under the Alvarez Empire Section though. Isn't Others supposed to be for people whose affiliation is unknown at the moment (or at the time of death)?... We could just make things messy by adding Zeref Dragneel in paranthesis below Spriggan? Iunno. .-. --Sane Lunatic (talk) 12:57, February 20, 2016 (UTC)
I don't even know? Like, we have several characters listed fuckton of times just because they had several affiliations throughout the series, so Zeref being basically a neutral (or third..) party in Ishgar while being Spriggan in Alvarez asks for him being under both sections imo Miskos3 Message 13:15, February 20, 2016 (UTC)
I guess the page developed into this 'cuz its structure revolves around affiliations for the sake of organization? I'd support having Zeref under Others too as Nick's point is perfectly valid. Flexibility FTW! \( ^_^)/

Loke former member

Loke's name on the character page is in blue - the colour for former members - but the article itself states (like Loke himself did) that he is still a member. Can someone change the colour to green please? NoNickNeeded (talk) 09:46, June 7, 2016 (UTC)

*bump* Also can someone do something against the bright-green background on Mest's picture? NoNickNeeded (talk) 12:46, June 8, 2016 (UTC)

Mest's image doesn't have a bg. It just needs to be overlaid on a white layer and reuploaded. Would do it myself, but don't have an image processing program at hand at the moment. Will do it later (or you could simply ask somebody somebody who has better net connection than mine or a simple imp at hand).

profile pics

I've noticed that some characters have their post-timeskip pics as their main picture, while some have their pre-timeskip pics. I rather we have it one way and not both ways, you know for order and stuff. It makes sense to go pre-timeskip > post-timeskip; if someone is just starting out FT it would be nice if they just look at the first appearance of a character when they first click on their page, instead of their latest appearance Ncduru 19:24, May 5, 2017 (UTC)

Are we talking about the Characters page, or specific character pages?

In the case of the latter, the general idea was to go with the latest appearance - I mean, to make a very rough comparison, when you are getting a new ID or any kind of a card with your photo in it, you won't be using a photo of a 10 years old yourself, when you're 20 now. Besides, I always viewed profile pictures as photos - facing forward, face close-up - on your ID, the infobox.

Now, the inconsistency issue you're mentioning may stem from a very old, unwritten rule which made its appearance around the post-Tenrou time skip happening in the manga: we would keep the pre-time skip profile image as the first picture in the switch until we got to the post-time skip material in the anime, most likely so that you can see the character in color when you click on the article. Once the anime caught up, the post-time skip picture would go first.

It makes absolutely zero sense to me to focus on the pre-time skip material. To be super blunt, I couldn't care less about "if someone is just starting out FT" people, we're an online encyclopedia which is supposed to contain an up-to-date information about the series in question and that includes the illustration. Otherwise, might as well have a kid Ultear in the infobox and call it a day.

Also, it'd be nice if, next time, people actually took their time to consider things as they are in such semi-important matters instead of blindly yelling bandwagon. Just sayin'
