This discussion is closed. The result of this discussion is:
Even if scanlators pick a gender to use, the official Japanese version of the manga uses a gender-neutral pronoun. Until said pronoun becomes gender-specific, Frosch's gender will remain as 'unknown'.
Please do not edit this discussion.

Is anyone sure that Frosh is actually a male since the eyes have eyelashes witch is usually seen on females and the cheeks have blush marks. --NewWorldWarrior 23:25, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

No. But I think we should keep it like that until we get more confirmation. However, if the community decides to change it female, then we can change it. Bickslow DollRelikz Talk 23:29, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

I'm going to change it to unknown for the time being.. Iam...JakuhōRaikōben  01:01,11/9/2011 

I know that Kodansha's word doesn't hold much weight with the wiki, but it might be worth mentioning that they've said they plan on treating Frosch as male. Heads up for if anyone tries to 'correct' the wiki on that one. --Isaya831 20:54, June 11, 2013 (UTC)

Either way, the latest Japanese scans don't seem to have any confirmation. But still... Immblueversion (talk) 20:00, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

I think Frosch is male because of this cover (A4lex de Morais (talk) 23:11, August 16, 2013 (UTC))

Frosch is referred to with gender non-specific pronouns in Japanese, so his gender is undeterminable at this time.

There's a lot of HE describing Frosch, so i think he's actually male (A4lex de Morais (talk) 23:12, August 16, 2013 (UTC))

In the native japanese though, Frosch is never referred to by any specific gender. Scanlators make up the gender--GodKingdraPray 23:15,8/16/2013

Actually, according to this he's male.

Don't judge gender from translations. In the original they used gender-neutral pronouns. Chaos has already checked it. NoNickNeeded (talk) 21:20, March 24, 2014 (UTC)

I've heard that Frosch is a boy. I went to some websites and was told that the author, Hiro Mashima, said that Frosch was male. 03:25, May 4, 2014 (UTC)I think cheese is awesome

Unless you can link us to those sites as a reference and show us the exact line (not someone's version of the line) where Hiro Mashima stated that Frosch is male it will be considered fan rumour, just as every other claim of Frosch's gender has been to date. Thank you. ☆°・*CarrotSays...*・°☆ 03:42, May 4, 2014 (UTC)


Can we change the name to Frosch? It's pronounced the same, but is the actual correct spelling of the German word for frog, which I am pretty sure it's based on. 23:57, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

Talk to our translator.  Iam...JakuhōRaikōben  23:59,1/6/2012 

Hair or Fur color?

This is more of a general Exceed issue than exclusive to Frosch (this was just the first page were I noticed it).

Shouldn't the line "Hair Color" be renamed to "Fur color" in the facts box? NoNickNeeded (talk) 21:09, June 11, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, it should. I'll handle that now. JakuhoBulbasaur IvysaurVenusaurRaikoben01:15,6/12/2013
I thought 'Hair' also means hair covering your body, even in animals' case. My dictionary clearly mentions cats' hair... Miskos3 Message 10:24, June 12, 2013 (UTC)
Whoops overlooked that last one till now. Yes it's not exactly wrong, but I've yet to hear it refered that way in common language, unless people are talking about single hairs, rather than the whole fur, though that might be a regional thing in the place I live at.

Death Prediction

Is there a reason why no one added that shadow Rouge told Natsu to tell Rouge to protect Frosch from dying in a year's time from the end of the timegate arc at all costs in order to prevent Rouge from turning into shadow Rouge? 10:47, March 29, 2014 (UTC)

Frosch's gender part 2

Fairy Tail (2014) episode 27 it mentions that Frosch is a female. ( 06:20, October 4, 2014 (UTC))

As we have said 100 times over, English, unlike Japanese, DOES NOT have a gender neutral pronoun, and scanlators and subbers CHOOSE a pronoun to use to make the subtitles/translations make sense. Until Frosch gets a gender specific pronoun IN THE MANGA RAWS its gender will remain as unknown. Thank you!

P.S: The subs I watched switched between "he" and "she" depending on who was talking.

Hi sorry to start this discussion again, but someone posted this tweet of Mashima on the french wiki and said that it was telling that Frosh is a girl. Do you have any informations about that :o ? Thank you ! Dulanabey Talk

Idk what the tweet says or if it's legit, ask Wrath for that but on Frosch's actual guild card in the manga its unknown. If this is real if it's fair to discuss but I'm not too sure it is Ncduru 18:45, January 7, 2017 (UTC)

It's from 2014, I doubt it's anything relevant Miskos3 Message 19:46, January 7, 2017 (UTC)

Sorry if I do any of this wrong, as I've never posted on this site before, just stumbled upon it, but I used Google's image translator and that tweet, if it's real, is definitely saying that Frosch is female. However, this doesn't really prove anything unless somebody can actually find evidence that the tweet originated from Hiro.

Edit: This is a Twitter search of tweets from @hiro_mashima between September 13th, 2014 and September 15th, 2014. The aforementioned tweet does not appear to be in the results.

User:Squirebullet 12:30, May 2, 2017 (UTC)

Well since we can't find the actual tweet, that screenshot could be edited we never know unless the physical tweet is there. Besides, we do not assume genders its 2017. XD
