"Team Natsu"?

Where was it mentioned that the group was called "Team Natsu"? I don't ever remember that. Dalyup! 19:32, November 8, 2009 (UTC)

I don't think it was mentioned anywhere what the team was named. I think that the only thing the team was ever called was Fairy Tail's strongest team, but I doubt that is the name of the team.--Cifer64 20:17, November 8, 2009 (UTC)

That's the only name I recall as well. This article has little use, regardless: each characters' synopsis details their missions and I doubt anyone doesn't know they work together. A good idea to put it up for deletion? Dalyup! 20:33, November 8, 2009 (UTC)

I think it should be made smaller and just put a brief description for the team, kind of like the pages for Raijinshuu and Trinity Raven pages.--Cifer64 02:29, November 9, 2009 (UTC)

That'd be a fair enough if this was an actual name for the "team", and we could just do that. Those teams have names given to us while this one has simply been made up and holds little justification for the name unlike the similarly incorrect Light Team. Really, this article has no use and some of it is actually wrong - for example, stopping Laxus wasn't a mission. I might put it up for deletion if no one gives me a good reason to keep it. I'm going to delete any mention of the name wherever I see it, anyway. Dalyup! 18:34, November 10, 2009 (UTC)

i think stopping bora shouldn't be considered a mission of team natsu since they weren't actually a team back then.


I wonder if Erza should be listed as the leader- she tends to be the one actually in command, telling others what to do, and she was the one who formally announced it's founding. ZeroSD 09:11, May 27, 2012 (UTC)

No. Speculation.

  BHappy Chibi.pngJ   09:15,5/27/2012

Well, Natsu as leader is also speculation. In that case, why don't we leave 'leader' blank? ZeroSD 09:34, May 27, 2012 (UTC)

No. Natsu's been acting as the leader even before the team was official. He was the one who invited Lucy to form one. And the unofficial name of the team is "Team Natsu" not "Team Erza".

  BHappy Chibi.pngJ   09:36,5/27/2012

Natsu commanded up until Erza showed up (I.e. when it was just Natsu and Lucy and Erza wasn't there), but Erza definitely commanded both Natsu and Gray, most obvious in the Eisenwald arc and the Cursed Island arc and she does have a higher rank in the guild, and Natsu has never commanded Gray. And there's no unofficial team name in the manga aside from 'Fairy Tail's strongest team,' that is just what's used here. It could just as easily be called Team Lucy, Team Erza, or Team Happy. ZeroSD 09:49, May 27, 2012 (UTC)

Just because Erza orders everybody around doesn't mean that she's the leader. Not all leaders order their subordinates around. (Google Types of Leader)

  BHappy Chibi.pngJ   09:53,5/27/2012

Yes, but some do, and it definitely doesn't make Natsu the leader. Anyone on the team can suggest missions it seems, and when there is commanding, Erza does it. ZeroSD 09:56, May 27, 2012 (UTC)

Anyone else have an opinion? ZeroSD 11:40, May 31, 2012 (UTC)

Wendys' "membership"

Since Edolas, Wendy has been with Team Natsu all the time. She was one of the main protagonists in the Edolas arc and fought Faust with Natsu (and Gajeel).

At Tenrou Island, she was not with them at the start (but then, it was an exam and everyone only cooperated with their partner). When the exam had been put on hold, and she had escaped Azuma, she got together with Natsu and Lucy rather quickly. She fought Hades with the rest of Team Natsu.

When the Tenrou crew got back after the time-skip, she hanged out with Natsu, Lucy and Gray all the time. She went to train with them. When the Grand Magic Games began, she was placed on the the A-team just like the rest of Team Natsu. Makarov could easily have chosen, say, Juvia or Mira, to be on Team A, and Wendy to be on Team B (that might even have balanced things out more, as the B-team seemed somewhat stronger than the A-team), but she got to be with Team Natsu. She is also around them all the time during the breaks.

So yeah... One cannot really deny she is a de facto member of Team Natsu now (along with Carla, but I did not mention Carla because she is with Wendy all the time, has a smaller role and interacts more with Happy than the human members of Team Natsu).

So can she be included as a "member" and not just a "temporary member"? I am asking before I edit because it is still somewhat subjective. The other members were mentioned as members by Erza in chapter 69, but Wendy and Charle haven't been. But then again, Team Natsu is fan-speak and not an official name, and it also a bit subjective what makes a temporary member and not just an ally. 02:16, September 16, 2012 (UTC)

No. Though the name "Team Natsu" is just a fan made name, Lucy, Natsu and Happy did create a team in the Daybreak arc and later they were joined by Erza and Gray in chapter 69, as you have said. Wendy has never been mentioned to have ever joined the team, therefore, we cannot added her because she always tags along with them. RelikzTalk PageTalk 02:29, September 16, 2012 (UTC)

We'll have to wait for her to be sent on missions with the rest from the start. ZeroSD (talk) 12:01, December 27, 2012 (UTC)

Alright, that has happened now. She went on the sweets mission with Erza, and now she and Carla is on the mission to defrost that village along with Team Natsu. Wendy and Carla are obviously members now, and I actually think it's somewhat pedantic (sorry if it comes off as demeaning - English is not my native language, and I was not sure which words could be used instead) if people insist that they are still not members because they haven't been directly stated to be part of the team yet. Maybe they became official members off-screen, but the most likely thing is that Wendy and Charle just became so good friends with the rest of Team Natsu that it felt really natural for them to tag along. Just like when you become friends with someone, you usually don't stop up and say "I think we are friends now" to have the other person confirm or deny this. 00:46, July 13, 2013 (UTC)

Hello, whores. I know most of you guys will just oppose this without thinking about it first; the name is protected by a layer of nostalgia, so I'll try my very best to convince you. Frankly, I find the name of this team so genetic it makes me sick. As many of you know, or will know, I'm reading the Fairy Tail Manga all over again, and I'm having a blast. One of the things I noticed was that this team was called "Fairy Tail's Strongest Team" in the volumes. Both Kodansha and Del Rey. Obviously I'm saying I prefer Fairy Tail's Strongest Team over Team Natsu, which is a fanbase name. Team Natsu makes it sounds like Natsu is the named leader, which is not true; he was never named as the leader. Technically a name change discussion can be created since the name is not official, so I would like to know what you guys think about it. If the name does change, then it won't be a "big change" as "Team Natsu" will be used (since both are not exactly official), just that the links will be changed so there won't be any redirects. Also, at least "Fairy Tail's Strongest Team" was mentioned in the manga numerous times. Whereas Team Natsu, zero. ( ._.)

Oppose.png Oppose - I can see where you are coming from, but Fairy Tail's Strongest Team is just not a suitable replacement in my opinion. Firstly, it's a description not a name. >_> Secondly, it hits the ear wrong and is a very inconvenient and long team name. Thirdly, and this ties in with the first, since it is a description, when people see it, they won't think it's a team name, they'll think it is what is - a description of a team. Fourthly, it sounds so biased. Yes, they were described as Fairy Tail's Strongest Team by Mirajane, but us actually naming the team that seems as if we're trying to back that statement. Fifthly, I really don't think you guys realize just how much influence we have on American viewers of Fairy Tail. We are the main source of information for lots of people. When you google Fairy Tail, our wiki comes up before any other website on the web - even Wikipedia. With that being said, we have to be careful of the changes we make. If we change Team Natsu's name from it's current popular, and admittedly catchy, name then it should be for an official name, not a much less attractive description that we are trying to pass off as a name. >_> Sixthly, Natsu isn't the team leader, but, after Plue, he was pretty much the founder so the name isn't really that much of a stretch. I hate calling the Team "Team Natsu" too, but I just don't think the proposal is good enough to change it to. JakuhoBulbasaur.gif Ivysaur.gifVenusaur.gifRaikoben02:31,11/15/2013

☆°・*CarrotSays...*・°☆ 08:40, November 15, 2013 (UTC)

If I remember correctly it was also used for some of the "story teller text" at the beginning and ending of chapters, though even Gray rejected the name, making Mira cry in the process. NoNickNeeded (talk) 08:54, November 15, 2013 (UTC)

Oppose.png Oppose - Given me a better name that is as easy to type/say as Team Natsu and I will have no problem. And quite frankly, even though he isn't the leader, he is basically the main person. How many times does everyone say Natsu when they are in a scrape? His friends all give him the support and chance to land the final blow and he is the one who motivates them, which is pretty much what a leader does. Erza maybe way more mature than him but she is usually less powered at those times and has to rely on Natsu as well. Granted however that whenever she did, she was weakened and injured as heck. But I think that reason is enough for why most people know it as "Team Natsu". Also the points Rai mentioned.

Oppose.png Oppose - Mirajane said it as "Fairy Tail's strongest team". Not as a name, but as a description (as Rai stated). Also, this was immediately discarded by the other guild members who heard (in Natsu vs. Erza fight I think). Also, I distinctly remember the Thunder God Tribe being called something along the lines of FT's strongest team too (during the Fighting Festival arc of course because since then Mashima has completely forgotten about it) Relikz TalkUser Talk`

Oppose.png Oppose - Yeah, 'Fairy Tail's strongest team' was always just a subjective description of certain characters, or overhyping chapter narration. Besides, it's long af compared to Team Natsu. Miskos3 Message 13:40, November 15, 2013 (UTC)

Oppose.png Oppose - Same reasons as Rai.. RifatHappy Chibi img.pngTalk17:00,11/15/2013 

Oppose.png Oppose - The team may have been mentioned as "Fairy Tail's Strongest Team", but as we all know, this name is not objective at all. In addition, another team has been referred to as "Fairy Tail's Strongest Team", which is Team Fairy Tail in the X791 GMG. Finally, this site is the biggest FT encyclopedia, and if we call that team "Fairy Tail's Strongest", it is likely for many viewers to accept it as a fact, which is far from the truth. Finally, although Team Natsu is not a nice name for many reasons, Natsu is the male protagonist, so it is appropriate. Given that, I'll have to oppose as well ( ._.)

The team's status

Hey I sadly can't contact any admins and I'm not sure who I tried to contact already so I've decided to create this. The team is active again as revealed in Chapter 430 Team Natsu, Page 21-22. Could anyone of the founders please change the status from active to disbanded? By the time I featured it as disbanded it was because Gray seemed to be a real member of the Avatar cult. Also make sure to add (formerly) behind the Base of Operations because the team doesn't have one at the moment as well as list the Fairy Tail Guild as previous occupation and mention that the team is independent.

Thank you for you time :) --SnowFairyTail (talk) 19:49, April 22, 2015 (UTC)

Wendy's Membership Again

Wendy and Carla are a part of Team Natsu.
Please do not edit this discussion.

It's becoming more and more frequent to the point that she was the third one Natsu looked for. I think it's time we included her since even Gajeel mentioned that they are "Team Fairy Tail A". Wendy's an official member now and Carla by association. Shock Dragoon (talk) 12:13, July 27, 2015 (UTC)

I 100% agree, it's just becoming too obvious ever since Wendy and Carla arrived in the OS arc. They've been on every mission with Team Natsu, Wendy is always introduced in every opener with Team Natsu, they were in Team FT A during GMG arc... It's just too obvious and frequent so I think they should be included with them instead of separate {Ncduru (talk) 13:35, July 27, 2015 (UTC)}

I'm usually against these kind of changes, since it's so much work, but in this case I'm for it; it's a significant change that really should be made. Wendy and Carla are clearly members of the team, there is just no denying it. If they can't be recognized as members of the team, then neither can Gray or Erza imo. Onfire.gif Wonder Talk 14:53, July 27, 2015 (UTC)

This has been discussed a thousand times, and the answer remains the same you guys. It's not a matter of us not thinking that Wendy's a member. It's a matter of it never being officially stated. When Gajeel mentioned Team Fairy Tail A, he was making a reference back to their Grand Magic Games grouping more or less. Until Wendy and Carla are specifically stated to be a part of this team (which will likely never happen due to the fact that this team wasn't named and hasn't been referred to as a team in many years), we can't list them as members. Gray and Erza were specifically mentioned to be members, so there's no "they shouldn't be recognized" as far as they are concerned. Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben 19:58,7/27/2015

This is one of those times we need to break the "we dont put it on the page unless its stated". Lets face it, she is a member of the team. Ever since her introduction, she has been on every single mission with them. She is a main character and her and Carla are most certainly on the team. It will never be stated because as you said, its not an officially named team. Just because Natsu never said "Wendy is now on Team Natsu" doesn't mean she isnt on the team and I think we need to recognize that.-- God · Pray · 20:03,7/27/2015 
That much has always been true. We've literally always known that Wendy was a part of the group, but we're a wiki and we don't indulge in speculation. That goes for when the information is questionable and when it's blatantly obvious. And as far as Wendy tagging along goes, I don't recall her going on any official jobs with Team Natsu. You know, the type that you get paid Jewels for. Things like rescuing Makarov aren't Jobs. :/ Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben 20:11,7/27/2015
The only official job they went on with the team was Warrod's request, and to be fair, all of them more or less just tagged along because plot, as originally Warrod had requested for just Gray and Natsu to go.

Sun Village arc --Sane Lunatic (talk) 20:13, July 27, 2015 (UTC)
So Devil Slayer Magic and Ice Devil Slayer Magic become Lost Magic? That's just one example off the top of my head. I prefer being rigid and not including anything that cannot be referenced. Keeps things simple. --Sane Lunatic (talk) 20:13, July 27, 2015 (UTC)
I agree with Godisme's points. And it would actually be very beneficial for us to have them as a part of Team Natsu; that way instead of always summarizing chapters like "Team Natsu, Wendy and Carla attempt to blah blah blah...", we could instead just use the term Team Natsu. And since as you say, it's not an officialy named team, then hypothetically no one have been named members of the 'Team Natsu'. As it's not really considered a "real team", there shouldn't be a need for people to be named as members of the team for them to be in it imo. Onfire.gif Wonder Talk 20:16, July 27, 2015 (UTC)
So we should break the speculation rule that keeps this wiki in order for convenience? >_> Let's not and say we did. And yeah.... no. The team is very much official. It's just not named, so moot point there. :/ Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben 20:19,7/27/2015
The team is official. It was created by Happy, Natsu and Lucy on Plue's suggestion. Gray and Erza later officially joined the team. The only unofficial thing about it is the name. --Sane Lunatic (talk) 20:20, July 27, 2015 (UTC)

(Reset indent)

We aren't really breaking the speculation rule though. We know they are part of the team. Yes, we can't reference it, and thats the big drawback, but its plain to see they are members of the team. I don't know, I think its just so blatant at this point that no one can deny it.-- God · Pray · 20:24,7/27/2015 

Not being able to reference it because it was never mentioned in the manga is the very definition of speculation. >_> Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben 20:27,7/27/2015
Ok, my mistake, sorry about that. I guess the team is official enough. But STILL, you can't possibly say that Wendy and Carla being members of the team is speculation. It's not been confirmed, but it's still not speculation. So many lines are pointing towards the fact that the two are members of the team, and Mashima clearly intends it that way. There is just no denying it. I can accept the fact that because it's not officially stated that they're part of the team we can't add them, but you can't with your right mind decline that the two are members of the team. Onfire.gif Wonder Talk 20:30, July 27, 2015 (UTC)
As Rai said, something that cannot be referenced is speculation. Can you provide a reference saying that Wendy and Carla have joined Team Natsu? --Sane Lunatic (talk) 20:33, July 27, 2015 (UTC)
No I cannot. What I'm wondering about is how you guys can balantly state that they are not members of the team, just because it has not been officialy stated. As I have said, I accept that we can't add them as members, but I'm asking you guys; do you really not think they're members of the team? Onfire.gif Wonder Talk 20:38, July 27, 2015 (UTC)
We've mentioned (or at least I've mentioned) several times already that we think that they are clearly members. It just can't be referenced. >_> Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben 20:47,7/27/2015
Sorry, seems like I missed you saying that. It just feels wrong to me to not add them when we know they are members, but what can you do... Onfire.gif Wonder Talk 21:05, July 27, 2015 (UTC)

I personally think this should be the last discussion we ever have about this topic, and then we should make an unspoken rule to never ever talk about it again unless its brought up again within the context of the series, and then sacrifice anyone who tries to talk about it on talk pages again to Satan. =)
WrathYou...wanna talk..?Zero 20:28, July 27, 2015 (UTC)

Satanic sacrifice FTW!!!! :D Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben 20:30,7/27/2015
Who will perform the ritual then? Perhaps the God of the wiki? XD Onfire.gif Wonder Talk 20:33, July 27, 2015 (UTC)
Agreed. Would also like to set in stone what defines speculation. For example, we have Azeal using Sand Magic, a named Magic, for now. But, if someone asks us whether we can reference it ... we can't. But it'd still be stupid to call it anything but Sand Magic (at the moment). So ... past what boundary is an obvious conclusion speculation? --Sane Lunatic (talk) 20:39, July 27, 2015 (UTC)
We can, imo. He clearly said in this chapter that he used sand. That's enough as a reference, imo. Miskos3 Message 20:41, July 27, 2015 (UTC)

I'm on the other side of fence. I think we should just consider this team something of past and not try to 'update' it whenever a new character appears near Lucy and Natsu. Miskos3 Message 20:41, July 27, 2015 (UTC)

Thats something I could get behind. Stop considering the team now as Team Natsu + Wendy and Carla and just call it a group of FT mages-- God · Pray · 21:07,7/27/2015 

I'm in favour of adding the pair to Team Natsu, I wasn't even aware she wasn't considered a part of it. DeraxSend me a message 21:05, July 27, 2015 (UTC)

With the whole disbanding and reforming of Fairy Tail, people splitting up and reuniting... I think it'd be best to leave the old teams as they were and create a new one... though not right now. My reason for the delay is mainly Erza. If she remains Guild Master she might not go with the others on missions and thus wouldn't be part of the team. NoNickNeeded (talk) 21:16, July 27, 2015 (UTC)

Lol that pic actually tells a lot, didn't really peep that Juvia and Gajeel and Lily were actually considered a team but it does makes sense since they both came from Phantom. But this really does confirm all the arguments so we should make a vote {Ncduru (talk) 01:42, July 28, 2015 (UTC)}

There's no need for a vote. The magazine is the most credible source we have, and it says Wendy and Carla are part of Fairy Tail's Strongest Team, therefore we just need the magazine volume number from Gramapa and we can make the change.
WrathYou...wanna talk..?Zero 05:07, July 28, 2015 (UTC)

Mest, a temporary member?

Shouldn't we add Mest as a temporary member of Team Natsu, since he was in the team when they all went to rescue Makarov? It works the same way that when Flare worked with them in the Sun Village Arc.

What do you think?

Goldlarvitar (talk) 23:43, August 26, 2015 (UTC)

agree --Ncduru (talk) 01:06, August 27, 2015 (UTC)


This team was referred to in the anime as "Erza's team" and "Fairy Tail's Strongest Team" upon it's creation, and "Team Erza" at a later point by Mirajane, so why don't we use one of those titles instead of a conjectural one?--Neffyarious (talk) 08:11, August 11, 2016 (UTC)

Everything was mentioned in the 2nd reference, which basically says the name was agreeably chosen by American fanbase. It's not the official name, but if certain majority agrees with it, it's much a better way than choosing the name randomly from the anime, which itself isn't the source of information we rely on most of the time. I hope this answers your question :P
