Zeref Dragneel was considered to be the strongest, most evil Mage of all time, who possesses extremely dangerous and powerful Magic know as the Black Arts. Around 400 years ago, he was cursed by the God Ankhseram with the Curse of Contradiction. After this, Zeref wished to die and created the Etherious in the hopes that they would kill him, eventually reviving his brother as the strongest Etherious, E.N.D. (Etherious Natsu Dragneel).

Zeref was also able to invent the R-System, which was a device that had the power to revive the dead, and he also created the Eclipse Gate, which allowed the user time travel. It is likely that Zeref is the smartest person in the entire Fairy Tail world that we have met so far)

Weaknesses: His magic is significantly dampened by people's negative emotions as long as he bears the burden of humanity to atone for his sins. After the time skip, he no longer feels the need to carry this burden as long as the world resents him and thus resents humanity. Immortality granted by his magic can be removed, thanks to the contradictory nature of that ability.


Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Ankhseram Black Magic: It is a Black Art that allows Zeref to produce a black matter that kills any living thing it touches. This Magic seems to be uncontrollable at times, causing it to burst out randomly, killing anything within a certain radius around him. However, when Zeref forgets the value of and no longer cares about human life, he can fully control this Magic. Certain Magic Items can protect people from Ankhseram Black Magic, such as Natsu Dragneel's scarf. This Magic also appears, contrary to the nature of the Black Arts, unable to be learned, as Zeref only gained this curse-like Magic by upsetting the ancient God of life and death, Ankhseram, who apparently bestowed this upon Zeref due to his making light of the connections between life, death, and people in his race to bring his brother back to life. The side effect of this Magic is immortality and the inability to age. It is said that no matter what, Zeref can not be killed, even if he loses his head. He also does not age. Owing to his status as an immortal, if Zeref has gone at least a short amount of time with receiving damage occurring in successive intervals, his wounds heal without a trace.
  • Death Predation: The usage of this spell creates a dark wave that kills everything in the user's immediate vicinity.
  • Dark Orb: A spell that creates a dark mass in the formation of a ball, when used, destroys everything in its path.
  • Dark Repent: Zeref swipes both of his arms in a circular motion until the bottom of his hands meet. The hand on top has the index and middle fingers pointing upwards, while the other hand has the little and index fingers pointing downwards. While doing this, he is surrounded by a dark aura. This spell creates a huge vertical explosion, and its blast radius is seemingly controllable. It was used to kill Hades.
  • Dark Strike: Zeref punches his opponent with a death magic coated fist.
  • Dark Flare: Zeref raises his hand and fires a blast of death magic through his opponent's chest.
  • Dark Cage: Zeref ensnares his foe with several death magic tentacles.
  • Dark Blast Inferno: Zeref gathers flame-like dark matter in his palm and strikes his target with a powerful attack. This attack is so powerful, it briefly contended with a Savage Dragon Fire Form Natsu's Blaze of Savage Emotions. Living Magic: A very ancient, long-forgotten form of Magic that breathes life into an object. Some of Zeref's creations are sentient and seek to further Zeref's former, as-of-yet unknown, evil desires. Most of the beings that Zeref created were Demons.
  • Nemesis: This spell creates Demons from the rubble. It can create an entire army of Demons with just a few rocks. This magic was used by Hades while battling Fairy Tail. A spell from Volume 4 Verse 20 of one of the Books of Zeref.
  • Deliora: One of Zeref's many creations, Deliora was a monstrous Demon that attacked the icy villages in the North. Deliora was imprisoned in a block of ice by Ur. Lyon Vastia tried to unfreeze it so he could kill the Demon, however, after years of being detained in Ur's ice, the Demon's life force was greatly reduced, so much, in fact, that merely upon being released from the ice, it died.
  • Lullaby: A flute that can transform into a giant Demon. Whoever hears Lullaby's song (aside from the caster) will die. Erigor hoped to use this to kill the Guild Masters at their meeting. As Kageyama failed to carry out the mission, Lullaby transformed into its Demon form to feast upon souls. However, Natsu Dragneel, Gray Fullbuster, and Erza Scarlet were able to defeat the Demon Flute. It currently is in the Magic Council's possession.
  • Tartaros: Zeref stated that all of Tartaros' members are Demons he created.
    • E.N.D. (Etherious Natsu Dragneel): The strongest of his Demons and the master of Tartaros.
    • Mard Geer Tartaros: One of his strongest Demons and second in command of Tartaros.
    • Kyôka: An Etherious of the Dark Guild Tartaros, and a member of the Nine Demon Gates.
    • Jackal: An Etherious of the Dark Guild Tartaros and a member of the Nine Demon Gates.

    • Keyes: An Etherious of the Dark Guild Tartaros and a member of the Nine Demon Gates.
    • Seilah: An Etherious of the Dark Guild Tartaros and its team of the Nine Demon Gates.
    • Ezel: An Etherious of the Dark Guild Tartaros and a member of the Nine Demon Gates.
    • Torafuzar: An Etherious of the Dark Guild Tartaros and a member of the Nine Demon Gates.
    • Franmalth: An Etherious of the Dark Guild Tartaros and its team: the Nine Demon Gates.
    • Lamy: A mass-produced Etherious and a member of the Dark Guild Tartaros, working under Kyôka to help with the Demons' regeneration process.
  • Bloodman: Apart of the Alvarez Empire's Spriggan 12, he was at some point created by Zeref and he wields the supreme collection of all of the Curses possessed by the Nine Demon Gates and their leader Mard Geer.
  • Larcade Dragneel: Apart of the Alvarez Empire's Spriggan 12, he was deemed the strongest failed Etherious creation from the multiple attempts at remaking Natsu Dragneel, donning the last name of Zeref as proof of his strength.
  • Immobilization Magic: A Black Art of Zeref's that allows him to freeze time for all except those he chooses to remain mobile. After casting this Magic, the surrounding area and all those affected by the Magic appear inverted in color, while those unaffected stay as they are. Fairy Heart Form: Zeref, after activating the Magic of Fairy Heart and the Space Between Time, accesses a mode that he calls "surpassing a God of Time and Space." In this form, he becomes entirely white overall, with an intricate clothing design as well as wings. Due to Fairy Heart's infinite Magic Power and Space Between Time's Power, he can control time and space, as when Natsu blew him back with a powerful attack, he reformed his being as well as the area that was destroyed with ease. After attaining this form, his magic power increases exponentionally and he becomes stronger than Etherion and likely superior the Dragon Cry. The increase of magic power that he gains from the Fairy Heart has been stated to have him possibly surpass Acnologia.
    • Time Magic: After accessing the Space Between Time's power, Zeref was said to have control of time, shown by reversing the debris of the destroyed part of the guild when attacked by Natsu. He can also use Time Magic offensively by coating his fists with it and punching a hole through his opponent's heart.
      • Neo Eclipse: With the power of Fairy Heart and Space Between Time, Zeref can merge both Magics into one, to create this Magic. With it, he can relive life again, destroying the current world while the new one replaces it. Neo Eclipse takes the form of a door, as Zeref merged it with Fairy Tail's guild door, and walking through it will induce the magic. This spell was going to Reset Time back at least 400 Years and allow Zeref to relive his life.
