The Fairy Tail anime finished airing in 2019 with Natsu Dragneel being one of the main protagonists in the series. He is carefree and slightly absent-minded. All while completely loyal to his comrades and guild. He will take on anyone or anything that threatens them. He was raised and taught to be a Dragon Slayer by his adoptive father, who happens to be a dragon, Igneel. Despite living in a magical world, dragons are extremely rare and believed to be extinct.
- Name: Natsu Dragneel
- Magic: Fire Dragon Slayer Magic
- Guild: Fairy Tail
- Guild Mark Location: Right Shoulder
- Anime: Fairy Tail; .
Natsu is a slightly tanned guy with an average height and a slim but muscular build. He has black eyes, spiky pink-coloured hair, and unusually sharp canines. Natsu has a scar on the right side of his neck that is concealed by his scarf. He is almost always seen wearing his scarf, even when his outfit changes throughout the series.
In addition to the gold-trimmed black fabric around his waist, Natsu wears a leather brown belt with an oval-shaped silver buckle to hold the sleeveless, gold-trimmed black waistcoat, which is typically worn open and untucked, exposing his bare chest. In addition to the wide black wristband on his left wrist, he wears white knee-length pants with black ribbon ties and black open-toed sandals as his first outfit in the anime.
As the series progressed, Natsu’s attire changed. A long overcoat version of his original waistcoat is tucked in and zipped instead of the open-collared one-sleeved long overcoat. Natsu’s left arm is covered by a brown faux leather armband, which leaves his Fairy Tail mark and his entire right arm exposed. Igneel’s scarf is still on Natsu’s neck, and he wears the same lower attire. His wristband can be seen on his right wrist as well.
In addition to his original waistcoat, he now wears a black long-sleeved jacket with light-coloured trim and sleeves rolled up to his wrists, black baggy pants fastened at the waist by a brown leather belt, and dark brown high-calf boots, all of which have yellow, skull-like patterns sewn into the fabric.
As well as these outfits he often gets outfits from the celestial realm, with Virgo choosing outfits that match Lucy’s.
When it comes to friendship, Natsu is unwavering in his loyalty. Natsu has a simple mind and prefers to deal with problems “hands-on.” In the guild, Natsu often accepts jobs that will improve or prove his strength. He has a tendency to go overboard since he does not hold back. This leads to hilarious and often destructive results. His desire and drive to improve often lead to him challenging the stronger ‘S-Class’ wizards in his guild.
Natsu Dragneel’s Strengths & Weakness
After defeating his enemies he holds no ill will towards them. Instead, he is quick to offer his hand and help them. This is both a strength and a weakness. Natsu’s love of fighting has led to him developing a strategic mind, which on various occasions helps him to find weaknesses in his opponent’s techniques, or simply weaknesses his opponents themselves possess. Natsu has on occasion, defeated his opponents with pure wit, rather than brute strength.
When Natsu fights his emotional state influences his magic’s intensity and strength. His friends will motivate him according to the situation, whether that is teasing him to get him riled up or encouraging him to keep going. Unlike other fire mages, Natsu has the ability to eat flames allowing him to get stronger and get an energy boost. This ability comes from being a dragon slayer.
Natsu’s biggest weakness is that he becomes motion sick from just looking at, or simply thinking about, any form of transportation.
