The Demon (魔人 Majin)
Fairy Tail Head Waitress
Take Over Siblings
|Base of Operations|
Mirajane is a slim young woman of below average height. She has long, white hair, which gets slightly curly at the ends, with two bangs framing her face and reaching down to her ample chest, and whose most distinctive trait is a short, upward ponytail obtained by gathering and tying the hair covering her forehead. Due to her always adopting such fashion, her hair seems to have adapted to it, with the hair on her forehead remaining pointed upwards even when not tied. She has large blue eyes and a curvy, voluptuous body, with large breasts. Her white Fairy Tail Stamp is located on her left thigh. Mirajane is widely known for her beauty, being Fairy Tail’s drawing card and having posed many times for the Sorcerer Magazine.
Mirajane’s most commonly seen attire is a long, sleeveless maroon dress. The chest is adorned by a large, pink bow, and similarly colored trimmings frame the rather ample neckline, acting as straps, and circle around the waist. The pleated skirt of the dress reaches down to her ankles. Mirajane also wears high-heeled shoes that match her dress, has a small chain necklace with a blue oval gem attached to it circling her neck, and sports a bracelet made of white flowers circling her right wrist.
When performing one of her songs after Team Natsu’s return from the Tower of Heaven, she was shown donning a leopard print dress with plain inners, a slashed skirt, a plain ribbon in the same place as the one in her standard outfit, a similarly plain, large sash tied around her waist, with its two large edges hanging down on both of her sides, and thin straps holding up the dress above her chest. On her feet, she wore sandals with the front straps being crossed in an "X" shape. Later, she switched to a more casual and skimpy attire to perform different music, this being a leather band covering her breasts, a matching leather miniskirt and fishnet stockings held up by suspenders. Later, when she was bound, gagged and stored away by Gajeel Redfox in order for him to sing in her place and make friends with his new guild mates, she donned the attire of a Fairy Tail waitress, consisting of a dark, short and revealing strapless one-piece dress with lighter edges, bearing the writing “Fairy” on a lighter stripe going down from her right breast to her upper left hip, plus a light-colored symbol of Fairy Tail on the front right part of her waist. She also wore a small, light collar with a thin ribbon holding it up, light-colored boots reaching up above her thighs, and similarly long gloves, almost reaching up to her shoulders. Both the boots and the gloves had belt-like upper edges each closed by a button.
On Tenrou Island, she adopted a more casual style, with her usual dress being replaced by a much shorter, plain and light-colored one, whose only particular feature was a very small, dark ribbon occupying the same place as the one on her maroon dress, paired with some dark stitchings around the neckline. She was also shown wearing light flip-flops on her feet, and didn’t sport her accessories anymore. After this attire was torn as a result of her fight with Azuma, she replaced it with a new one, a towel-like dress held up by two straps circling her neck. She also had most of her body wrapped in bandages due to her injuries.
In her younger years, Mirajane wore a gothic-looking, overly revealing outfit matching her tomboyish personality back then. She donned a dark, skimpy sleeveless shirt adorned by some light curved motifs on the chest, a pair of leather shorts held up by a studded belt with a demonic-looking buckle and thigh-high boots with stiletto heels, each bearing a skull adorned by a flower on their upper front parts. She also sported a bracelet-shaped like a demonic arm around her right wrist, a ring on the same hand's middle finger, and dark nail polish. She didn't have her front ponytail, instead letting a large strand cover her forehead freely, and had most of her hair tied in a high, larger ponytail on the back of her head by a massive dark ribbon.
In her younger years, Mirajane was known as "The Demon" (魔人 Majin), and before Lisanna's pseudo-death, she used to be a very feared person, infamous amongst guilds and criminals alike. She dressed in a punk Gothic style, and was rather temperamental and bad-mouthed everyone, especially Erza, whom she had quite a rivalry with from when they were kids. However, due to a past incident involving the apparent death of her younger sister, Lisanna, Mirajane somehow lost much of her Magical ability and her will to fight (both of which have now returned), and her personality changed drastically.
Now, Mirajane is a loving and caring person who treats her friends, and even strangers, with kindness. Mirajane plays a motherly role within the guild, and is often seen running the bar at the guild hall. She has rarely been shown to be in a bad mood, and can tolerate all of the guild's eccentricities. However, there have been a couple events that have disturbed Mirajane, including her discovery of the theft of an S-Class job by Natsu Dragneel, Happy and Lucy Heartfilia, and her later conflict with Laxus Dreyar following the destruction of the guild building.
Mirajane is also very determined to protect her comrades, going so far as to changing her appearance, in order to fool the Phantom Lord Guild into thinking she was Lucy, whom they were trying to capture. Along with running a bar, Mirajane shows great talent not only in modeling, but playing the guitar and singing. She is very popular, not only among the Fairy Tail members, but also among many people outside of the guild. She likes cooking and has since her younger, tomboyish years. Mirajane was described by Lisanna as being a good cook, preparing food alongside Elfman for the three Take Over Siblings. She dislikes cockroaches.
Sometime in her younger years, Mirajane's parents died and so, she, along with her two siblings, joined the Fairy Tail Guild. She was around 13 years old at that time. When she was younger, she was always in brawls with her rival of the time, Erza Scarlet. She even intimidated many of the older members, due to her punkish attitude and bullying tendencies. Despite teasing Natsu endlessly, she always had a soft spot for him, finding him to be cute when he cries. As she grew older, her abilities increased tremendously, and in the year X781, at the age of 16, she became an S-Class Mage, being the second youngest Mage in Fairy Tail to do so, besides Erza. During a mission with her younger siblings, Elfman and Lisanna, Lisanna was supposedly killed by Elfman, due to him losing control when he tried to take over "The Beast". Lisanna's loss caused Mirajane to become kind and motherly, and lose her will of fighting, just like a great part of her magical power.
Mirajane greets Lucy Heartfilia when she first arrives at the Fairy Tail Guild and a large scale brawl begins due to Natsu Dragneel. Lucy asks Mirajane if she is supposed to stop it, and Mirajane replies that it happens all the time. When she is hit on the head by a bottle, she starts to bleed but is otherwise unfazed, stating that it's more fun like this, much to the shock of Lucy. Later, Mirajane explains Natsu's past to Lucy, and the pain that all Mages in Fairy Tail share.
Mirajane explains to Lucy about the regular meeting of the Guild Masters of different provinces, and about Dark Guilds. Later when Erza arrives and tells Natsu and Gray that they are going on a mission with her, Mirajane welcomes Erza back and remarks that they could very well be the strongest team in Fairy Tail. However, she is worried that those three couldn't work together without arguing, and asks Lucy to tag along as a mediator. Later, Mirajane sends Makarov a letter informing him about the newly formed team, much to Makarov's dismay.
Galuna Island arc
Mirajane helps explain to Lucy about the S-Class Mages and the Guild's rule of the second floor. Later, she is visibly upset when she finds that Happy stole an S-Class mission during the night. She soon learns that Laxus did nothing to stop him and she gives him a frightful glare that he hints, is more befitting her former 'Demon' persona.
Phantom Lord arc
Mirajane helps Team Natsu down to the basement as she explains that Phantom Lord attacked the guild during the night. She then tells Makarov to behave as he starts to spank Lucy for taking a S-Class mission, despite only giving Natsu and Gray a smack on the head.
Later after Makarov loses his power, Mirajane and Cana Alberona try to call Mystogan and Laxus back to the guild for the war effort. However, as Laxus badmouths the guild and starts to harass her, Mirajane loses her patience with him and destroys the Communication Lacrima, questioning aloud why someone so cruel is in Fairy Tail. As Phantom Lord descends, she declares she can't battle and instead transforms into Lucy. However, she is captured and taken as a hostage.
Her capture helps Elfman regain his lost Magic, Full Body Take Over and gives him the ability to defeat Elemental 4's Sol. After defeating Sol, Elfman makes his way towards Mirajane, freeing her and apologizing to her for taking the form that killed his sister again. However, Mirajane comforts him and figures out how to stop the Abyss Break. They later catch up to Gray, who has just defeated Juvia, and explain the details to him and then join up with Erza who has just defeated Aria. Master Jose then arrives, complementing them before taking Elfman and Gray out instantly. She is later seen waking, and retreating when Master Makarov arrives. After the Guild War ends, she is later seen celebrating the Guild's victory.
Mirajane provides Lucy with a "special job" that she had been saving. Mirajane, alongside Makarov, Bob, Goldmine and Yajima, goes to watch Team Natsu as they perform. She is later seen explaining to Elfman about Natsu and Gray's pillow fight, and why they were arguing about it. Mirajane then has to explain to all of Loke's girlfriends that she doesn't know his whereabouts.
Fighting Festival arc
Mirajane plays a beautiful ballad for everyone when Team Natsu returns from Tower of Heaven, and as Natsu starts a huge fight, she switches to a rock song, complete with wardrobe change. The next day, she is apprehended by Gajeel Redfox so he can perform his own song. Later, she performs as the returning champion in the "Miss Fairy Tail" pageant. She apparently shoots down all hopes of winning as she turns her head into Happy and Gajeel's, turning into the latter in retaliation for apprehending her the other day. She is then turned to stone by Evergreen, along with the other girls. Once Erza defeats Evergreen in battle, she, along with the other participants in the Miss Fairy Tail contest, return back to normal.
She is later seen after Freed defeats Cana. Elfman tries to fight Freed, but is easily defeated. Freed then keeps attacking Elfman even after he's not able to fight, making Mirajane beg for him to stop. When Freed attempts to kill Elfman with his Magic, Mirajane finally snaps. The clouds part as she lets out a scream and a huge burst of Magic Power destroys the terrain around her. She activates her Magic, Take Over: 'Satan Soul'. As she and Freed begin to battle, she completely overwhelms him in both power and speed. As their battle progresses, Freed remarks that the only way to beat a demon is with a demon, and he uses his Yami no Ecriture: Darkness which turns him into a demon, but even then, Mirajane continues to easily overpower him. Just as she is about to finish Freed off, she has a vision of her younger sister Lisanna, and decides not to finish him off. She then begins talking to Freed about the guild members, making Freed cry. The battle ends as a draw, since Freed was defeated and Mirajane had lost her will to fight.
Later, she is seen on Fantasia Parade, along with her brother, Elfman, where she appears from a rose and then transforms herself into a giant gecko-like animal.
Oración Seis arc
Mirajane explains to everyone about the Dark Guilds, and greets Makarov when he tells everyone about the plan to destroy Oración Seis. After the battle and when Wendy joins, she is seen explaining Gildarts' history to Lucy when he returns.
Note: Events in this arc occur only in the anime and do not constitute canon material.
When Team Natsu, Wendy, and Carla return to the guild, she warmly welcomes the latter two, and asks what kind of Magic they use. Later, when Gildarts comes back, he is surprised to see how much Mirajane has grown and how much she has changed.
When Anima is about to absorb Fairy Tail and Magnolia Town, she is shown going out to church with Elfman, even in the heavy rain, for Lisanna's death anniversary. Following the events in Edolas, she and Elfman continue on to the graveyard, and offer their prayers for the anniversary of Lisanna's death. Elfman says that they should leave, but she says she wants to stay a little bit longer. Just then, they hear a voice calling out to them, and turn around to see Lisanna running towards them. Immediately left speechless, they couldn't believe their eyes, but then become filled with joy when they reunite with a hug.
Tenrou Island arc
After the welcome party for Lisanna, Mirajane is seen sleeping on the floor with Lisanna, Elfman, Jet, and Droy. Later, she talks to Lucy about Cana's claim that she was thinking about leaving the guild. At the announcement of the S-Class Trial, after all the rules were explained, it was then revealed that Erza, Gildarts and she would also be participating in the trial as well, though their only main role is to hinder the participants from progressing further into the trial in any way they possibly can.
She is later revealed to be in path A, waiting for her opponents, Elfman and Evergreen, with her Take Over Satan Soul activated. Later, Elfman and Evergreen, being overwhelmed by Mirajane, barely pass the exam, and it is revealed that they told Mirajane that they are getting married, which shocked her and gave them an opening to defeat her. She believes that they lied to beat her, but then contemplates them having a very ugly child, causing her to cry.Similar to everyone else when thinking about Mest, she can't exactly recall him entering the guild. Later, after Grimoire Heart lands on Tenrou Island, she and Lisanna fight off some members of Grimoire Heart without much effort. Azuma then confronts them, and Mirajane tells Lisanna to get back.
Azuma starts using his Explosion Magic, so Lisanna recommends that Mirajane use Satan Soul to defeat Azuma, but she says she can't use the spell over and over again so much. Azuma then realizes he is fighting the "Demon Mirajane", and requests a serious match against her demon form. She doesn't respond and tells Lisanna to run away, because she can tell Azuma is very strong. Since she doesn't respond to Azuma's request, he traps Lisanna in a ticking time bomb. As Mirajane panics, Azuma tells her that the bomb will go off in three minutes, and that is the time she has to defeat him. She calls him a coward, but he says he will do anything to face the demon. Without a choice, she uses Satan Soul, even though she knows she won't be able to retain it for long.
After she and Azuma battle for a while, Mirajane realizes she doesn't have enough time to defeat him, so she flies over to Lisanna, and deactivates Satan Soul. She apologizes to Lisanna, telling her that she is unable to defeat him due to the lack of time left, but she believes there is someone in the guild who can. She then tells her she's going to forfeit, but not to worry, because Lisanna was the one person she would not let die. The bomb goes off with her hugging Lisanna. After the explosion, Mirajane's heavily damaged body covers Lisanna, saving her from the blast. Her sister calls her name, but she gives no response. Azuma, disappointed, walks away. She is later seen recovering alongside Gajeel, with Lisanna and Levy by her side.
Later, after Hades is defeated, a few Grimoire Heart Guild members attempt to attack all the Fairy Tail members that fought Hades, but Mirajane, along with the Thunder God Tribe, Gajeel, Levy, Cana, Lisanna, Elfman, and Makarov, intervene. When Grimoire Heart Finally leaves Tenrou Island, she and the rest of the Fairy Tail members go rest at their camp.
Their rest, however, is cut short when Acnologia arrives and attacks the guild members. Mirajane is horrified when Makarov holds the beast off, and tells his guild members that his final order is for them to escape. She heeds his order and she attempts to flee Tenrou Island. However, she, along with the rest of Fairy Tail, come back. She activates Satan Soul and attempts to fight Acnologia. When Acnologia flies into the air and prepares to use some sort of Dragon Breath, the Fairy Tail members hold hands and give all their Magic Power to Freed in an attempt to negate the attack, but they fail and Tenrou Island is destroyed. They are found seven years later.
Mirajane, along with the rest of the others, return to the Fairy Tail Guild after being found by Bisca, Alzack, Jet, Droy, Max, Warren and the Trimens from Blue Pegasus. She, along with the other returning members, is welcomed back by Romeo.
Key of the Starry Sky arc
Note: Events in this arc occur only in the anime and do not constitute canon material.
Grand Magic Games arcAfter the guild decides to join the Grand Magic Games, Mirajane, together with her team mates, Elfman, Lisanna and Cana, hike out to the mountain to train themselves and enhance their power. After returning from training, Mirajane is chosen by Makarov to be part of Fairy Tail's Team B, along with Laxus, Gajeel, Juvia and Jellal Fernandes (disguised as Mystogan). The team ultimately bested Fairy Tail's Team A, and placed second in the preliminary rounds, second to Team Sabertooth.
As the Grand Magic Games start, the first event, Hidden, is announced. Gray enters the event and loses, and when the battles start, both Lucy and Jellal lose as well. Later, Mirajane, along with the rest of the Fairy Tail Guild head to a local bar to celebrate Fairy Tail's terrible loss on the first day of the Grand Magic Games, and she and Erza both promise each other to do their best.
During the second match, when Elfman is called to battle Bacchus, Mirajane is shocked. She feels uneasy upon hearing Bacchus' wager in his and Elfman's bet. But upon her brother's victory, she expresses relief and happiness.
In the next match, Mirajane is selected to fight against Team Blue Pegasus' reserve member, Jenny Realight. The match begins but it quickly turns into swimsuit contest much to the delight of dozens of males in the stadium. After modeling for a short while, the two talk and Mirajane suggests that they end their match peacefully. They do several more poses and both gain tying points in their contest. Jenny then makes a bet: the loser will have to appear nude in the next Sorcerer Magazine, which Mirajane accepts. When Jenny enters her battle mode, Mirajane responds by transforming into Satan Soul: Sitri and quickly defeats her, gaining 10 points for her team. She then tells an upset Jenny that she'll be looking forward to seeing her in her birthday suit. After the match, Mirajane says that she felt a bit embarrassed, while her team-mates congratulate her, with Natsu (in his corner) saying that she is as strong as she was before.
During the third day's battle portion, Mirajane is extremely surprised to see what seems to be Laxus getting beaten around by "Alexei". She later expresses shock when she sees Laxus disappear and another Laxus popping up out of nowhere, with Raven Tail's members defeated and "Alexei" exposed as Iwan Dreyar. When Laxus is declared the winner, she is shown visibly pleased.
After Laxus's victory over Raven Tail, Wendy and Chelia match begins. At some point during the battle, Wendy succeeds in countering Chelia's powerful Heavenly Gathering of Clouds, and Mirajane explains Chelia's Magic effect; she says that Chelia has the ability to cure her own injuries but cannot recover from her fatigue. Carla continues saying as Wendy has the ability to recover fatigue and so she boosted Chelia's stamina to change the course of Chelia's attack.
During the fourth day of the Grand Magic Games, Mirajane is seen asking how Juvia got pushed out of the water sphere when she got distracted.
Magic and Abilities
Take Over (接収 (テイクオーバー) Sesshū (Teiku Ōbā)): Mirajane is a skilled user of Take Over, a type of Magic which, as the name suggests, allows her to take over the powers and abilities of particular creatures she really "knows". She shares such Magic with her siblings Elfman and Lisanna, something which made them known as the "Take Over Siblings". The particular, signature form she employs is called Satan Soul.
- Satan Soul (サタンソウル Satan Sōru): Satan Soul is a very powerful spell, as well as the source of her epithet “The Demon” (魔人 Majin). Satan Soul allows her to take over the appearance, abilities and powers of a demonic being. When she activated it for the first time after two years of abstinence, she released a large Magical blast which destroyed the surrounding area. Satan Soul is initiated by seemingly covering Mirajane’s body in flat, square-shaped scales-like parts, which subsequently disappear, revealing her new appearance. In such state, her eyes become darker and her eyelashes grow longer, with a dark, thin marking in a light zigzag-style crossing her right eye vertically; similar markings are present above her right breast and on both of her bare thighs. Her hair becomes wilder, jutting upwards and getting curlier, with the front ponytail growing longer, and her ears enlarge, extending backwards, and gain pointed edges, bearing resemblance to those of fictional elves. She also gains sharp canine teeth, and her lips become covered in dark lipstick. Her forearms and hands receive noticeable changes, becoming covered in scales, and each sprouting a fin-like protrusion on its outer side. She also grows a large, stocky tail, seemingly made of metal plates or scales, getting smaller and smaller near its end. Her clothes also changes, with any attire she might be donning being replaced by a dark, skimpy one-piece suit revealing her arms and legs, which is open on the front and the back, exposing most of her belly, wide cleavage and upper back too. Such cloth has lighter-colored edges taking on spiky shapes, and her similarly spiky collar is tied around the neck by a cravat tie. Her shoulders are tied in some thin belts protruding from her one-piece suit, and her feet are covered by matching, high-heeled thigh-high boots, which are decorated by lighter motifs on their upper parts, taking on the shapes of jagged blades pointing downwards on the front of her legs, and on the lower parts, in correspondence to her ankles and feet. She also dons a pair of gauntlets covering the back parts of her transformed arms. Using this spell is extremely exhausting for Mirajane, so much that she cannot execute it in consecutive reprises.
- Immense Strength: When employing her demonic powers, Mirajane's strength is increased to the point where she can easily break through solid rock with her punches. When her fist clashed with Freed’s own demonic form, a powerful shockwave was generated, which destroyed the ground below them. She was also able to block a punch from Elfman while he was in Full-Body Take Over with one hand.
- Flight: In this form, Mirajane is capable of sprouting a pair of wings from her back at whim, which allow her to fly. Such wings are reminiscent of a bat’s, and come with small spike-like protrusions on their upper edges.
- Enhanced Durability: This form increases Mirajane's natural durability, allowing her to take multiple powerful explosions in consecutive reprises, emerging almost unscathed and remaining active to continue the battle.
- Enhanced Speed: While in this form, Mirajane's speed increases to the point where, after sprouting her wings, she could easily deliver a powerful punch to Freed, even with the help of his own wings, and a large distance between them, before he could react. During her fight with Azuma, she could similarly deliver a powerful kick into his stomach before he had the chance to react.
- Satan Soul: Halphas: A Satan Soul form that allows the user to take over the appearance, abilities and powers of the demon Halphas. This spell is so powerful that Mirajane was able to destroy an entire city using it. Because of its destructive power, Makarov Dreyar has forbidden her from using the spell. While using this spell, Mirajane gains ears that are covered by long sky blue scales, extending backwards, which have pointed edges. She also gains similar scale-like armor in her forearms and hands as well as in her legs. Mirajane also grows a large, sky blue, stocky tail seemingly made of metal plates or scales. Her clothes also change, with any attire she might be donning being replaced by a light blue and dark blue, one-piece suit revealing her arms and legs, which is open on the front and the back, exposing most of her stomach, wide cleavage, and upper back. This Satan Soul form also dons two angel-like wings that are always pointing upwards.
- Flight: In this form, through the use of a pair of wings that are reminiscent of an angel's, the user is capable of flight.
- Enhanced Speed: While in this form, the user's speed increases dramatically, to the point where it can even surpass the speed of Satan Soul.
- Immense Strength: When employing this form, the user's strength is increased to the point where they can easily break through large amounts of solid rock with ease. While using this form, Mirajane Strauss was able to block a punch from her own Satan Soul form, that was being used by Mary Hughes, with one hand.
- Satan Soul: Sitri: This is, to the best of Erza Scarlet's knowledge, Mirajane's most powerful spell, that allows her to take over the appearance, abilities and powers of a demonic being. When she activates this technique, her clothes are replaced by ones that are more revealing. She grows horns on the side of her head and she also grows a lot more hair. She also grows a pair of claws and dark-colored markings appear on her legs. She is surrounded by what appears to be flames which her feet seem to be merged to.
- Flames: While in such form, the flames spreading from the user's feet can seemingly be employed to attack foes, making melee attacks performed by the user more dangerous due to a trail of fire remaining where he/she strikes, which can inflict further damage upon targets.
- Enhanced Speed: While in such form, Mirajane was able to quickly attack Jenny without the latter being able to counter nor dodge it.
Darkness Magic (闇の魔法 Yami no Mahō): Mirajane has proven herself to be a skilled user of Darkness Magic. She was able to deactivate Freed Justine's Dark Écriture: Darkness and defeat him with the use of it. She was also able to use it to aid her in keeping the upper hand in her match with Elfman and Evergreen.
- Darkness Stream: Mirajane extends her hand towards the opponent and summons forth her Magic Seal, from which a multitude of large hands composed of dark energy is formed, which move to try and catch the opponent. It was used against Freed, who evaded it, thus leaving its full effects unknown.
- Soul Extinction: Mirajane initiates this attack by gathering energy from the surrounding area between her hands, which subsequently takes the form of a large, transparent globe. Such globe is then launched at the opponent, generating a devastating explosion. This spell was strong enough to defeat Freed, who no longer had his Dark Écriture: Darkness and Dark Écriture: Wings spells active after its blast. This spell is unnamed in the manga, but it was given a name in the anime. There also seems to be a variety to it, in which the sphere, seemingly created faster, is focused around Mirajane's hands and forearms and shot in a less powerful, yet still destructive blast.
- Evil Explosion (Darkness Magic): Mirajane holds her hands together and a dark colored sphere gathers on her palm. When fired, a powerful beam is expelled from the Mirajane hand. This spell was powerful enough to almost completely destroy Azuma's Tree Shield. However he himself received little to no damage. In the manga, the spell is unnamed, but it received a name in the anime.
- Demon Blast: A large ball of dark energy is charged between Mirajane's hands, from which a dark purple beam is fired towards the target.
- Evil Push: The user creates a swirling stream of darkness Magic from her hand and points it at the target, creating a tremendous force that pushes the target a long distance away.
- Evil Explosion: Using her Magic Power as a medium, Mirajane lifts a body of water, even one as big as a river, with her arms, and then starts rotating, sending the water flying towards her foe in a powerful whirlpool. This spell, which remains unnamed in the manga, was given a name in the anime.
- Evil Spark: A melee spell in which Mirajane extends both of her hands to touch the opponent, subsequently channeling electricity through them.
Transformation (変身魔法 Henshin Mahō): Mirajane is very skilled in the use of Transformation Magic, which is considered one of her specialties. She has been shown capable of transforming separate parts of her body instead of it all, and she is able to perform Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced Level Transformations with ease. When taking on the appearance of animals, she retains some features of her human form, such as her signature front ponytail and her womanly eyelashes.
- Dream Knock: Mirajane creates bubble-like bullets and sends them rushing towards her opponents. Upon contact, her opponent is put to sleep.
Keen Intellect: Despite her seemingly absent-minded personality, Mirajane has displayed a clever intellect, and, most importantly, a deep knowledge of Magic and its related world. She was able to understand how the Super Mage Giant Phantom MK II's spell, Abyss Break, worked after observing it for just a short moment.
Enhanced Endurance: Despite being out of battle for over two years, Mirajane has shown to be very resilient. After employing her exhausting Satan Soul to battle Elfman and Evergreen during the first phase of the S-Class Trial, Mirajane was able to use it again and keep it active during her fight with Azuma.
Enhanced Durability: Mirajane has shown herself to be a durable combatant. She was able to be hit by Azuma's explosions and still remain active to continue the battle. Despite being battle worn from facing Elfman and Evergreen and then going on to face Azuma, Mirajane was able to survive after taking the brunt of Azuma's 180-Second Time Bomb for her sister, Lisanna, although she was knocked unconscious.
Enhanced Strength: In her younger years, Mirajane was shown capable of easily breaking a large table in two with a simple downward movement of her hand placed vertically, even without the aid of Satan Soul.
Immense Magic Power: As an S-Class Mage of the Fairy Tail Guild, Mirajane possesses an enormous amount of Magic Power. When she first activated Satan Soul after two years of dormancy, her Magic Power completely destroyed the ground around Mirajane in a wide area. It is also great enough for Mirajane to lift and manipulate an entire river, something which Freed, an S-Class candidate, found incredible. When exerted it is purple in color. Azuma also commented that he felt a great amount of Magic Power from her.
Master Hand to Hand Combatant: Mirajane has proven herself proficient in close combat with the aid of Satan Soul, employing such style as her main form of offense. She was shown capable of clashing with Azuma with extremely fast and accurate strikes, matching him evenly despite the latter’s use of his explosions alongside hand-to-hand combat.
Main article: Elfman Strauss
Elfman is Mirajane's younger brother. The two are very close and care deeply for one another, and, before Lisanna's return from Edolas, the S-Class Mage constantly tried to reassure Elfman that their younger sister's "death" wasn't his fault. She was also deeply concerned when she found out that he was one of the combatants sent in to fight Phantom Lord's Element 4. Elfman, for his part, is very protective of Mirajane, and when he saw that she was in danger of being crushed by Phantom Lord's Super Mage Giant Phantom MK II, he achieved his controlled Full-Body Take Over to defeat his opponent and save her.
Main article: Lisanna Strauss
Lisanna is Mirajane's younger sister. Mirajane is very protective of her, and cares for her deeply, to the point that she would take the full brunt of an explosion sent towards Lisanna by Azuma to protect her, shielding the girl with her own body. When she thought Lisanna had died, her entire personality shifted, and she became kind and motherly, forsaking her punkish and tomboyish attitude; something which shows how much she's attached to her younger sibling.
Main article: Erza Scarlet
Mirajane and Erza are two guildmates that share a very friendly relationship. In their younger years, they were rivals. The two fought constantly in a fashion very similar to the way Natsu Dragneel and Gray Fullbuster fight in present day. Mirajane disliked Erza, and didn't want Elfman and Lisanna associating with her or anyone she considered to be on Erza's "team". However, their rivalry ended abruptly when Lisanna, Mirajane's sister, supposedly died: this completely changed Mirajane's personality, prompting her to become kind and cease her feud with Erza.
Main article: Lucy Heartfilia
Before joining Fairy Tail, Lucy Heartfilia looked up to Mirajane as a model of sort, being amazed by all her appearances on the Sorcerer Magazine and by her popularity. When they first met, with the S-Class Mage approaching the newcomer in a friendly way, Lucy referred to Mirajane with the honorific suffix "Mirajane-san". Lucy is shown to be on very good terms with Mirajane, often sitting at the counter behind which she's working and confiding in her about the facts happening in her life and the problems troubling her. Mirajane is also usually the one explaining things regarding the guild and the Magic world in general to the unexperienced girl. It's also worth noting that it was Mirajane who marked her with the Fairy Tail stamp, starting her adventures within the guild. Lucy is shown to be often stunned by Mirajane's peculiar, comedic reactions to some happenings. Mirajane's affection for Lucy was demonstrated during the Guild War between Fairy Tail and Phantom Lord, which had the S-Class Mage transform into Lucy in order to protect her from the opposing Mages, who wanted to kidnap her.
Main article: Makarov Dreyar
Mirajane and Fairy Tail's Guild Master Makarov Dreyar are on very good terms. Mirajane is often shown to act like an aide of sort to Makarov, staying by his side and explaining things to their fellow guildmates on his behalf, as well as informing him of the recent happenings in the guild when he's away and scolding him when Makarov is overwhelmed by his attraction for young women; Mirajane herself isn't spared from the old man's desires, as shown from him priding himself with some fellow Guild Masters on having someone beautiful as Mirajane in Fairy Tail and enthusiastically rejoicing in seeing Mirajane and her fellow model Jenny Realight posing in swimsuits during their battle in the Grand Magic Games. The man is shown to respect Mirajane's known skills, making her part of the second team competing in the Games for Fairy Tail, pairing her with other powerful individuals the likes of his grandson Laxus Dreyar and the former Wizard Saint Jellal Fernandes (disguised as Mystogan).
Main article: Laxus Dreyar
Mirajane and her fellow S-Class Mage Laxus Dreyar have known each other for quite a long time, with the two of them having joined Fairy Tail in their younger years. Mirajane is shown to respect Laxus'strength, asking for his help in situations endangering the guild and its members, but also used to get angry at the man for his arrogant and nasty attitude, reprehending him when Laxus insulted their comrades or refused to help out the guild he belongs to even when the latter was in grave danger, something which prompted her to burst into tears, angrily wondering how Laxus could be a member of Fairy Tail acting in such a way. In spite of this, Mirajane seems to care for her fellow S-Class, appearing happy at the thought that Makarov would have readmitted him to Fairy Tail due to his reapppearance on Tenrou Island. It's also worth noting that, while Laxus looks down on Mirajane's rival, Erza Scarlet, said to be the strongest woman in Fairy Tail, he was shown praising Mirajane's Satan Soul: Sitri, hinting at a certain degree of respect and recognition for her.

Wakaba Mine is always flirting with Mirajane, asking her out on dates and even staring at her private parts. When first introduced, he used his Smoke Magic to create heart-shaped figures and ask the woman out on a date. However, Mirajane denied his dating requests and reminded him that he has a wife. Seven years after the destruction of Tenrou Island, following the missing Fairy Tail Mages' return, while Reedus Jonah is drawing a portrait of several guildmates among which is Mirajane, Wakaba is seen staring at her private parts with delight. Later, when Wakaba sees Macao Conbolt asking Mirajane to dance with him, they begin to argue over her. During the Grand Magic Games, while Mirajane is competing with Jenny Realight in a bikini contest, Wakaba and some of his male comrades watch eagerly.

After the missing Fairy Tail members' return, Macao is seen asking Mirajane to dance with him, something which angers Wakaba. The two of them soon afterwards begin their usual fight over Mirajane. During the Grand Magic Games, Macao is one of the spectators watching the bikini contest going on between Mirajane and Jenny Realight with delight.
Main article: Freed Justine
Freed Justine, the captain of the Thunder God Tribe, is a guildmate of Mirajane. Freed once had an arduous battle with the S-Class Mage due to his assault on Mirajane's younger brother, Elfman; an act which prompted Mirajane's slumbering Satan Soul form to be activated. Awakening her powers, Mirajane engaged in combat with Freed, who was operating under the order of Laxus Dreyar. During the course of the battle, Freed witnessed the wrath of Mirajane's overwhelming vehemence and destructive power, and the Demon was on the verge of killing him. Just before landing her final blow on Freed, however, love engulfed hatred, and Mirajane relinquished her Take Over. She made Freed see reason by telling him the very definition of kindness and friendship, bringing the latter to tears, and alleviating the burden of his heart.
Main article: Natsu Dragneel
Natsu Dragneel has known Mirajane ever since their younger years, when she used to be a nasty and fearful Mage, due to the both of them having joined Fairy Tail as children. Despite teasing Natsu endlessly in their youth, she always had a soft spot for him, finding him to be cute when he cries. Having grown together with Natsu, Mirajane knows many things about him. It was Mirajane who told Lucy Heartfilia about Natsu's saddening past involving his foster parent Igneel's sudden disappearance. She greatly cares for Natsu, something shown when she requested Lucy to take care of him during his mission with Erza Scarlet to annihilate the Dark Guild Eisenwald. During the Grand Magic Games, Natsu is shown admiring Mirajane's overwhelming destructive power as she defeats Jenny Realight.
Main article: Jenny Realight
Jenny Realight and Mirajane used to work together in the swimsuit modeling business, with the former, at some point, winning the title of "Miss Fiore". During the second day of X791's Grand Magic Games, Mirajane and Jenny are paired up to battle one another, and they proceed to wager that whoever loses is to appear in the Sorcerer Magazine nude. Despite Jenny's plan to obtain victory in a contest of beauty, Mirajane prevails by turning the confrontation into a clash of strength and striking her rival down with Satan Soul: Sitri. Soon afterwards, the winner tells the losing, crying Jenny that she is eager to see her nude with a mischievous smile on her face.
Main article: Azuma
Azuma, a Mage of the Dark Guild Grimoire Heart's élite Seven Kin of Purgatory, once had a grueling fight with Mirajane. Having no option but to engage in combat with Azuma due to her sister Lisanna being threatened by a time bomb set up by Azuma, Mirajane resolved to assault him in her Satan Soul form. The Dark Mage was fascinated with Mirajane's overwhelming strength, but he didn't have much time to enjoy himself, as Mirajane flew to shield her younger sister and minimise the bomb's explosion damage, with Azuma expressing his anger at the action. Admiring the opponent's strength but disappointed by the fast end of their match, Azuma abandoned her injured body to fulfill his mission.

Fairy Tail Portable Guild 2
Fairy Tail Gekitotsu! Kardia Daiseidou
- Her name comes from parodying the username of Hiro Mashima's friend from an online game.
- From the Volume 16 Limited Edition: Sorcerer Interview, the best quality of Fairy Tail, according to Mirajane, was "Everyone is really nice". She is thinking of becoming a singer in the future. She has a good relationship with everyone in the guild. Mirajane, like her brother Elfman, did not wish to comment anything on the most difficult job ever taken.
- She considers Plue to be the strongest spirit ever.
- She's good at cooking, as stated by Lisanna.
- Mira's Take Over: Sitri is a name of Great Prince of Hell that reigns over sixty legions of demons. He's mentioned in Ars Goetia.
- In Volume 32's extra content, Mashima provided the battle statistics for 31 of the 40 X791 contestants in the Grand Magic Games. The stats, however, were provided not from Mashima's point-of-view as the author but from the view point of Sorcerer Magazine reporter Jason. Which explains why some stats are missing and why others may be inaccurate. According to Jason from the Sorcerer Magazine, during her participation in the Grand Magic Games of X791, Mirajane's stats are:
On a separate incident in the manga, Gajeel Redfox gagged Mirajane by tying a cloth around her mouth and chained her up using restraints created by his Iron Dragon Slayer Magic when she was preparing to sing for the guild, so that he would be able to sing in her place. In the anime this scene was omitted completely.
- (To Elfman Strauss) "It was never your fault that Lisanna died, back then too, you were just trying desperately to protect us."
- (To Freed Justine)"This battle is so meaningless, don't you think? We're friends you know, fellow members of the same guild, smiling together, laughing together, walking together."
- (To Freed Justine) "When people realize how lonely it is being on their own, they will become kind."
- (To Lisanna Strauss) "It's tough to accept but I don't have enough power left to defeat that guy, It's impossible for me right now, but I believe that there is someone in the guild who can. So your sister is going to forfeit here, but you don't need to worry, Lisanna.... I will never let you die again!"
