Dragon Slayers (滅竜魔導士, ドラゴンスレイヤー, Doragon Sureiyā) are people who use Dragon Slayer Magic, a form of Lost Magic.


Dragon Slayers are a unique type of people who utilize a form of Lost Magic, Dragon Slayer Magic. Each Dragon Slayer has their own form of Magic, just like each Dragon is a master of their own element.[1] In addition, the said Dragon Slayer also has the ability to eat their own element. Doing so rejuvenates them and enhances their abilities.[2] Dragon Slayers are known to possess keener senses than that of normal humans such as in smell, sight and hearing.[3][4][5]

There are three generations of Dragon Slayers: the First Generation, who learned their Magic from actual Dragons, the Second Generation, who have had Dragon Lacrima implanted into their bodies, and the Third Generation, who are a combination of the previous two generations.[6]

It seems that, for some reason, all Dragon Slayers of an advanced "level" suffer from severe motion sickness.[7] At lower "levels", this isn't much of a problem, as shown with Gajeel prior to the year X791, having rode on both the Super Mage Giant Phantom MK II[8] and the ship to Tenrou Island with ease.[9] However, after three months of intense training, he, too, became vulnerable to motion sickness, having trouble running on a chain of vehicles during the Chariot event.[10]

Dragon Slayer Magic has limitless functions in Edolas, and is valued as a priceless resource for everyday uses.[11]


First GenerationEdit

The original Dragon Slayers.[12] They were taught their Dragon Slayer Magic by an actual Dragon. In most cases, the particular Dragon Slayer’s teacher was also their foster parent.[13][14][15]

Second GenerationEdit

Those from this generation of Dragon Slayer have had Dragon Lacrima implanted into their bodies, granting them the ability to use Dragon Slayer Magic.[16] Because they were not taught their abilities by a Dragon, they are considered artificial Dragon Slayers.[17] Unlike the First Generation Dragon Slayers, they are capable of easily entering Dragon Force, seemingly of their own free will.[18][19]

Third GenerationEdit

Dragon Slayers heralding from this generation have both been taught their Magic by actual Dragons and have had their bodies implanted with Dragon Lacrima.[20] As with the previous generation of Dragon Slayers, these Dragon Slayers can also freely enter Dragon Force at will.[21]
