Some of the Dragon Slayers were trained by Dragons, while others gained Dragon Slayer Magic by means of Lacrima implants (as in the case of Laxus). For Lacrima implants, the Dragon Slayer Magic has to be extracted from a Dragon (that's my assumption). So how many Dragons in total, living or dead, exist in Fairy Tail? If possible please provide their names.

    13 dragons were named in the series (5 dragons that raised humans from the current time line, Acnologia and the 7 dragons that came through the Eclipse Gate). 400 years ago, there were thousands or maybe millions of dragons, but they got extinct. Commented Jun 7, 2015 at 20:10

According to the Fairy Tail wiki, there are 18 Dragons who have been given a name.

However in the Grand Magic Games arc we learn that 400 years ago the world was ruled by dragons. Many a Dragon were slain, and thus, the humans became known as Dragon Slayers.

Dragons with titles:

Other named Dragons:


There are thousands, but the main ones (that trained the dragon slayers) are of a number of 5. (Igneel (Natsu), Grandine (Wendy), Metallicana (Gajeel), Skiadrum (Rogue) and Weisslogia (Sting).) There is also Acnologia, making a total of 6 main dragons. There are a lot of other ones, but these are the dragons worth remembering. Especially Acnologia. There are other minor ones, but I don't think they are really important to the plot. The number of names mentioned is of 13, though.

    Pretty sure it was "Igneel" instead of "Ignir".

there are several dragon slayers (if u look at the dragon war era), but the ones that actually played a role in the story are:

  • Natsu (Fairy Tail)
  • Gajeel (Fairy Tail)
  • Wendy (Fairy Tail)
  • Sting (Sabertooth)
  • Rogue (Sabertooth)

  • Irene (Erza's mother)(Spriggan 12)
