Fairy Tail Natsu Dragneel

Natsu Dragneel

"I am not alone. I can hear them... I can hear everyone's voices... I can sense everyone's feelings... I am not alone... Everyone's feelings... They support me... They are what give me the will to stand and fight!"
— Natsu Dragneel to Zero in "The Power of Feelings"
Natsu Dragneel (ナツ・ドラグニル Natsu Doragoniru) is a FireDragon Slayer, a member of Fairy Tail, and the leader of Team Natsu. He is the main male protagonist of Fairy Tail.


Natsu is a lean, well-built young man of average height with light tan skin, black eyes, and spiky rose-colored hair. He always wears a scarf that is detailed with white scales, given to Natsu by his adoptive father, Igneel.[2]Natsu has a scar on the right side of his neck that is visible in the few instances he does not wear his scarf.[3] His red member's stamp is located at the top of his right arm, just below his shoulder.
Natsu's outfit mainly consists of a black waistcoat with gold trimmings over his chest with no shirt underneath, short white trousers that go down to his knees, and a wide black wristband on his left wrist and sandals along with his scarf. He has also been known to wear a rolled up comforter strapped across his back, though he rarely carries it in battle.


Natsu is a carefree and reckless in nature and, despite his constant brawls with the other members of the guild, is a fiercely loyal and protective friend. He thinks things through in a straightforward manner that usually involves taking things "head on". Even when faced with obvious hostility or previous grudges, he rarely holds a grudge or negative feelings towards an enemy, usually seeing the good in them. He does, however, hold a grudge against Jellal Fernandes for some time, but eventually forgives him and comes to consider him an ally.[4] He has also been shown to occasionally feel compassion for his enemies, such as when Cobra was betrayed byBrain.
Natsu constantly tries to prove his strength to others. He has challenged both Erza [5] and Laxus to fight him in the past, only to be defeated both times. However, he holds no grudge against them as he considers any member of his guild to be his friend, even in Laxus's case when he threatens the lives of his own guildmates. Due to his reckless nature, any fight Natsu involves himself in usually ends with widespread destruction. His continuous desire to fight causes Natsu to develop great wit in battle, quickly identifying his opponent's weaknesses and forming strategies to block the plans of his enemies. At times, he even defeats enemies with just his wit and trickery without throwing a punch, such as during the Galuna Island arc against Toby.[6] Natsu also seems to be very stubborn, hardly ever admitting defeat.
During the time of Lisanna's supposed death and disappearance, Natsu would get extremely upset whenever anyone carelessly brings up her name. Because of this, no one in Fairy Tail mentions her to him out of respect for his feelings.[7] This, of course, changes after Lisanna is discovered to be alive and returns from Edolas.
He suffers from motion sickness from all modes of transportation, including trains, boats, and carriages. It is to the degree that he can get sick from simply looking at a mode of transport or thinking about it,[8] and even when he is carried by another person. The only "transportation" that Natsu can freely travel on and not get sick is being carried by Happy.[9] Despite being quite dense Natsu has shown to be somewhat perceptive, especially when it comes to his friends and their feelings.


Little Natsu left by Igneel
Natsu was found as a baby by Igneel, a powerful FireDragon whom Natsu called his "father". Igneel raised him and taught him how to talk, write, and use a form of Lost Magic known as Fire Dragon Slayer Magic. On July 7, X777, however, Igneel mysteriously disappeared,[10]leading Natsu to set out in search of him. He was eventually found by Makarov Dreyar, the master of the Fairy Tail guild, where he became a member and formed a close, sibling-like rivalry with Gray Fullbusterand Erza Scarlet.

One day, Natsu found an egg in the forest east of Magnolia Town. Assuming it to be a dragon egg, Natsu took it to the guild and asked Makarov to make it hatch, but Makarov and Erza taught him that only Natsu could do it by watching over and caring for it.[11] Lisanna offered to help Natsu to raise the egg until it hatched, which Natsu accepted happily.[12] The two built a shack out of straw in the park to keep the egg warm, developing a very close friendship in the process.

The next morning, Natsu discovered that the egg had disappeared and assumed that someone had stolen it. After Natsu argued with everyone in the guild and fought with Mirajane over the egg, Elfman appeared with the egg and confessed he wanted to help Natsu and Lisanna raise it, but was too embarrassed to ask. Suddenly, the egg hatched and, to everyone's shock, a blue cat with wings was born. Because everyone stopped arguing and became happy upon the cat's birth, Natsu named him Happy.[13]
A few years later, Lisanna left together with her siblings to go on an S-Class job to hunt a giant monster called "The Beast". Natsu wanted to go, but Elfman opposed as he felt he should be the one to care for his family. While on this mission, Lisanna was supposedly killed accidentally by Elfman after he lost control of himself while attempting to take over the monster. Though Natsu forgave Elfman, he was greatly saddened by the event.
