It's very obviously Happy. I mean, why is there even controversy over this? The signs are all there.

If I could pick a pain character for Fairy Tail, I'd pick Mystogan. I think it would have been interesting with him as the MC. But, it's Natsu.

I don't really like Natsu... Natsu is like Luffy if Luffy was less goofy and even more "NAKAMA!!!" Not only is he the most one dimensional character in the show, but also the most one dimensional shonen protag ever.

Fairy Tail is pretty unique in this aspect, since it is a show that tries to fit into multiple genre. If I were to choose, I would say that Natsu is the go to protagonist whenever it comes to action, and Lucy for Comedy and poorly done drama.

Thread from 2 years ago for whoever's interested:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-786401/who-do-you-think-is-fairy-tails-main-character?pg=0



I'd say Lucy is most definitely not the true main character. She's a typical shounen main heroine (eye candy, damsel in distress, never fights main villain). Only difference is the story is often told from her perspective and she usually has narrating duties.

Fairy Tail has an ensemble cast, but Natsu Dragneel is the ''main-est'' character. He gets the most screen time, contrary to what previous posts say. He's the one who saves the day/Lucy, has rivals, fights the main villain and gets the Gary Stu power-ups.

Also, Natsu is strongly connected to all major plot points of the show (Igneel, Zeref, dragons) whereas Lucy is just trying to make friends with celestial spirits and pay rent.

In my opinion, Fairy Tail's story will only go as far as Natsu takes it. Lucy may narrate the story but the story revolves mostly around Natsu.

Lucy is the main character, everything centers around her.

I've always been under the impression that Lucy is the POV character while Natsu is the hero of the story.

You know, like Nick and Gatsby. If a FT light novel was ever written, it could potentially be first person from Lucy's perspective...about Natsu.

I'll put in a vote for Happy too... even if it's really Natsu.. but he'd be lost, without Happy!

Synopsis always says its Lucy, but I always feel like it has always been more about Natsu and Happy.
Multiple main characters are possible too.

I definitely consider Lucy to be the main character. That being said, without Lucy there's no Natsu, and without Natsu, there's no Lucy. They go together hand in hand, at this point. They constantly save each other and motivate each other. Why should we limit it to one protagonist? They wouldn't move forward if they didn't have each other.

YES I'm glad I'm not the only one who think Natsu is one dimensional and can never really like him. Im in love with Erza I wish they would do a alternate world with just Erza getting into trouble. Lucy is the weakest character. Does she ever do anything right. She always gets captured. Fuck.. now I'm mad. better look at Erza to calm me down....1...2....3..breath breath ok I'm good

Tbh i dislike both of em. Lucy being practically useless and Natsu being next to useless when it comes to anything but fighting or eating.

I prefer Erza and Mira personally they both are more of my type of magic. But ultimately i find Maev the single most best character on the show. She's exceptionally intelligent, funny as hell and exceptionally cute too.
