Shouldn't we add a Spearmanship section on the Armed combat zone? Fairy Tail symbol BOGOTA X - Talk 13:58,7/31/2012

As far as I remember, so far there has only been a pair of noteworthy spearmen, Knightwalker and Dan, and the latter isn't likely even canon, while we have several swordsmen worth noting.

If we were to add sections for every armed form of combat displayed so far, then we should also have Axemanship, Whipmanship and so on :P

Also Erza Scarlet has some competence with spears. And also the older Vanish Brother if you compare his huge frying pans to some sort of spear =D Fairy Tail symbol BOGOTA X - Talk 14:35,7/31/2012

Though it does seem a little inappropriate not to include them... Maybe add an "Other Masters" and "Other Experts" section under the Armed section and detail that these "others" are those who use weapons other than swords?   Rai  Talk     14:13,7/31/2012

Seems like a pretty nice idea, to tell it all. I think we could stick to it; creating completely new sections for arts which only have one or two users so far might be inappropriate (I'm the one to talk... :P).

Then it's settled! Lucky Reli wasn't online to ruin your plans Bogota, XD.   Rai  Talk     14:25,7/31/2012

it's only a matter of time XD Fairy Tail symbol BOGOTA X - Talk 14:35,7/31/2012

Heaven and Earth Extinct Slaying Attack

I notice that the entitled move is under both armed and unarmed techniques. Which is it? Shouldn't we keep it under one?

(Shadoguardian (talk) 01:18, August 4, 2012 (UTC))

Well technically it is both armed and unarmed I guess. One brother is armed while the other isn't. >_>   Rai  Talk     01:21,8/4/2012

How about we just put it under armed then, since one of them is using a weapon. (Shadoguardian (talk) 01:23, August 4, 2012 (UTC))

I think that'd be acceptable.   Rai  Talk     01:27,8/4/2012

Alzack & Bisca

Why were Alzack and Bisca listed in here?? They are guns user which mean a ranged combatant. I've checked what melee means and it said a close-ranged combat. I've also tried to search melee weapons and none of them listed guns as one of them. So, Alzack and Bisca is not suppose to be here. They are weapon expert, yes, but a ranged weapon not a melee weapon. So, I propose to remove them from this page.

Yup. I've removed them RelikzBickslow Doll3Talk 20:41, December 7, 2012 (UTC)

Forgot to mentioned that Sagittarius is a bow master as well. Could u remove him as well, please. Dragon-Tribal-Tattoo-6TalktoDdraig20:43,12/7/2012
Yeah RelikzBickslow Doll3Talk 21:09, December 7, 2012 (UTC)

Master and Expert

Yea uh how exactly are we gauging the level of master to expert in terms of hand to hand combat? From my POV Erza and/or Mystogan are much more skilled and fluent than brawlers and tanks like Natsu and Loke. Nothing that i have seen from Lokes technique,angle work,or combinations(if there are any) suggests that he is a "master" of hand to hand combat.--  Troll King                          21:10, July 21, 2013 (UTC)

Well Hungry, I guess the difference between "masters" and "experts" are that "masters" utilize it as their main form of combat, whereas experts utilize it as a backup option...I believe.
WrathRogue ChibiZero 21:16, July 21, 2013 (UTC)
So basically we're not looking at skill per say and more of experience/usage. Wouldn't make sense, would it mean Vijeeter is a master above someone like Erza who is one of the most proficient hand to hand combat users we have seen in the entire series?--  Troll King                          21:24, July 21, 2013 (UTC)

Actually, that's not accurate, son. The terms "Master" and "Expert" are meant to show skill level that has been displayed (so far). And I like the classifications, but at times I am a bit wary of using them because they tend to get subjective at times. I agree with Hungry's assessment of Loke. After reviewing his references, I think Loke should be classified as an expert. JakuhoBulbasaur IvysaurVenusaurRaikoben21:29,7/21/2013

Well that clears things up. Thanks, and I'm not your son fat boy. ಠ_ಠ --  Troll King                          21:31, July 21, 2013 (UTC)
I wasn't talking to you, you filthy whore. I was talking to my son! ಠ_ಠ And I am not fat!! ಠ_ಠ JakuhoBulbasaur IvysaurVenusaurRaikoben21:34,7/21/2013
I've heard rumors! Don't deny it tubbylumpkins!ಠ_ಠ --  Troll King                          21:35, July 21, 2013 (UTC)
So that's why my finger bounces back when I poke Papa Jak.. ( ._.) Now I know. Thanks for that tip, Hungry-sama! :D
Choko Kuguza No Tobira 21:37, 7/21/2013
Firstly, lies! Secondly, don't you ever call that bastard "Hungry-sama." ಠ_ಠ JakuhoBulbasaur IvysaurVenusaurRaikoben21:38,7/21/2013
But I also respect him like how I respect you! :(
Choko Kuguza No Tobira 21:40, 7/21/2013
Sorry, Hungry-SAMA cant understand what you're saying~ Please chew your food and then swallow "Albert".--  Troll King                          21:41, July 21, 2013 (UTC)

Wow, I go away for a few minutes and this happens? >_> At least I know my papa has his priorities straight. You tell 'em not-tubby papa! ಠ_ಠ
WrathRogue ChibiZero 21:39, July 21, 2013 (UTC)

@Wrath But of course. ಠ◡ಠ @Nunu You need some better role models in your life. >_> @Hungry Die, please. :)

O, and btw, I'll go over the list and see if there are any other combatants out of place. JakuhoBulbasaur IvysaurVenusaurRaikoben21:44,7/21/2013

Like who, exactly? >_> And I addressed him as Hungry-sama even in the beginning. :)
Choko Kuguza No Tobira 21:46, 7/21/2013

Woooo woooo hooo, stop right there. Erza "is one of the most proficient hand to hand combat users we have seen in the entire series"? Are you high or what? All I remember seeing of Erza's unarmed prowess is a porn-like catfight between her and her Edolas counterpart, which showed no notable moves on her side whatsoever, and a palm strike to Midnight, which was destructive just due to her sheer strength. What's that about?

Oh, and by the way... Sugarboy is definitely in the wrong Swordsmanship league.

-- Aldarinor Laxus Sprite Talk  Contribs  21:48, July 21, 2013 (UTC)

Why is Lucy considered an expert when she is probably the least competent H2H fighter in the series. Delta3000 (talk) 20:17, January 22, 2017 (UTC)

Could be to you, but that's the point unfortunately; it's a bit subjective. When you compare her fighting to someone like Erza or Natsu, you'd see that she's rather unmatched to the likes of them in that regard. So I hope you understand, as that's why it stays as it does :/
DispellingSiegrain ChibiMage20:43,1/22/2017

Amateur compared to Erza and still considered an expert, great logic. Furthermore if we compare FT characters to martial artists the real world, Jacob and Bacchus are the only ones that are beyond self taught thug levels of skill. Delta3000 (talk) 21:33, January 22, 2017 (UTC)

Take it from a real world martial artist with over a decade's experience, Lucy is a competent hand to hand fighter. But here's a better question: Why are you commenting on a 3 and a half year old talk section? Rhetorical question, don't answer it. Derax PaganiDerax Signature Image 21:40, January 22, 2017 (UTC)

Just keep in mind; this is what the majority decided, and they are a group of competent editors around here, so there's supposed to be little to no doubt in their judgement. So please understand that that's why it stays as it does :/ DispellingSiegrain ChibiMage21:38,1/22/2017

Fair enough, though I still think Lucy's skill level is being overestimated (i consider her adept, at best).

Mystogan's Classification

There's a certain incoherence here: On Mystogan's page, it says: "Expert Hand to Hand Combatant: Mystogan demonstrated considerable physical combat skills, being able to fight Natsu on relatively equal, if not greater, terms.[34]" Nevertheless, Natsu is classified as a Master Hand to Hand Combatant. So, if Mystogan is on par with him (or is even better), why is he an Expert? Sorry for any grammar mistakes. MiraMajinMirajane Chibi 2Talk! 00:36,3/2/2014

Mystogan being a Master H2H Combatant is not that much agreeable. He hasn't showed much of it after all. Instead of replacing Mystogan's Expert to Master or whatever, I think the one on his page should be the one rephrased. MamergeHappy Chibi img Chibi-ErzaHappy ChibiMessage07:41,5/4/2014

Mystogan didn't really fight long enough for us to see him do anything worth being ranked a Master. As such, I'll just reword his Magic and Abilities section a bit to ease confusion. Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben08:14,5/4/2014


Is it true that she counts as one of them? It seems to me that she punched Meredy during her fight with her. -- 01:57, April 18, 2015 (UTC)

Carla and White Moon

Since Carla developed the ability to use Transformation Magic and now uses her human form for combat, do you think we should add her to Expert Hand-to Hand Combat and White Moon as a move? --Etweens96 (talk) 03:30, June 3, 2015 (UTC)
