Natsu is strong, but it isn’t just because of the power of friendship. Fairy Tail Anime finally reached its end with epic battles taking place between the Fairy Tail Guild members, Zeref and Acnologia.
Natsu’s E.N.D. form finally came to play, and with the powers of other slayers, he managed to defeat Acnologia.
But now, with the villains defeated, we are left with nothing to do. Thankfully, the powers of our main character, Natsu, are enough to keep us occupied for days.
He has acquired many strong forms throughout the series, due to which it is difficult to figure out the one that reigns supreme. While there are many opinions online, I’ve managed to put together one that stays true to the source material.
1. What Is Natsu Dragneel’s Strongest Form?
Natsu’s strongest form in Fairytail is the Multi-Dragon Slayer form that he took when fighting Acnologia.
During the final confrontation with him, Wendy enchanted Natsu with the power of all seven Dragon Slayers and thus gave him the ability to defeat the final boss once and for all.
There is another form of Natsu Dragneel that also competes for the position of number 1, i.e., the Half-Dragon transformation. During the “Dragon Cry” movie, Natsu assumed this form to easily defeat an Animus like Acnologia.
However, due to the lack of information about it, the Half-Dragon Transformation isn’t placed above the Multi-Dragon Slayer form.
2. How Many Forms Does Natsu Have?
We have already covered two transformations when just talking about the strongest, but there are still many more that can give any enemy a run for their money.
Natsu Dragneel has 9 major forms; however, there are two that significantly boost his power.
I. Fire Dragon King Mode (with Igneel flames)
As a Dragon Slayer, and a first-generation one at that, Natsu has access to many abilities. The Fire Dragon king Mode provides him extremely destructive abilities by coating him in incredible flames.
When assuming this form, the ground itself becomes a crimson inferno and gives Natsu enough strength to defeat a Spriggan 12 member with a single blow.
However, the main reason it is so powerful is that when used in conjunction with the power of Igneel, Natsu was able to directly confront Zeref and annihilate his Black Magic.
II. Dragon Force
This is one of the most potent abilities in the arsenal of a Dragon Slayer. When entering Dragon Force, the user takes the form of a humanoid Dragon.
This transformation is the most powerful state a Dragon Slayer can attain and grants them utter destructive power, much akin to a real dragon.
While the slayers can enter this form by consuming different substances, such as Natsu eating etherion, flames of rebuke, etc., only a few attain it naturally.
Natsu Dragneel was the first First Generation Dragon Slayer to enter Dragon Force naturally.
By assuming this state and taking on a draconic form, Natsu was able to overpower godly opponents such as Mard Geer and Zeref.
The main reason why the Dragon Force form is highly regarded is that it is a part of Natsu naturally and will continue to progress alongside him.
It could even potentially rank as his strongest form, if not for the lack of demonstration.
3. Natsu’s True Form – E.N.D. Transformation
Natsu Dragneel’s true form is Etherious Natsu Dragneel, short for END. Created by the Dark Mage, Zeref, Natsu was able to access his demonic power after the mass of Magic in chest was enlarged by Brandish’s Command T.
By doing so, his features became more fiendish, and his power immensely increased; After all, he was made to kill an immortal himself.
When facing Dimaria, he moved freely inside a time-distorted world, thus making him capable of surpassing even the gods. After the addition of Wild Flames of Emotion, Natsu defeated Zeref, who was powered by the Fairy Heart.
All of these feats already make Natsu’s E.N.D. transformation an extremely powerful one; however, we still haven’t seen him use it to its full extent.
Unfortunately, due to the Demon Seed and the Book of END being destroyed, we probably won’t be seeing this form again.
4. Natsu’s New Transformation
Natsu’s relationship with his brothers has not always been the best, lightly speaking.
In the Fairy Tail 100 Year Quest, his foster brother, Ignia, the Fire Dragon God, wants to fight Natsu to death.
Taking things into perspective, with Ignia’s power being comparable (or even more) to Acnologia, it is impossible for Natsu to defeat him alone, yet.
Many fans are speculating that Natsu will completely transform into a dragon this time around.
It is believed that Ignia might create a new Dragon Seed and implant it within his foster brother to awaken his complete potential.
However, this seems unlikely as Mashima is more inclined towards giving Natsu temporary power-ups in his base form, rather than something permanent. Perhaps the power of friendship will also come into play here.
With the complete dragon transformation crossed out, Natsu will more likely find a better way to control Ignia’s flames, and along with Aldoron, he’ll eventually be able to strengthen his Dragon Force and gain a massive power boost.
By doing this, Natsu will also take on an entirely new form that may prove capable of standing a chance against the Fire Dragon God.
5. About Fairy Tail
Fairy Tail is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hiro Mashima.
During his journey to explore the Kingdom of Fiore, Natsu Dragneel, a dragon slayer wizard from the Fairy Tail guild, becomes friends with a young celestial wizard named Lucy Heartfilia and invites her to join Fairy Tail.
Lucy agrees and forms a team with Natsu and his cat-like partner, Happy. The team was later joined by other members: Gray Fullbuster, an ice wizard; Erza Scarlet, a magical knight; and Wendy Marvell and Carla, another dragon slayer and Exceed duo.
