But the 3rd generation dragon slayers don't seem like their dragon force is as strong as the dragon force transformations that natsu has had. The 2nd generation dragon slayers, Laxus and Cobra, when they were first introduced, had to enter dragon force to use their dragon slayer magic, they were strong, but their dragon force was nothing like what natsu used against zero and gerard. I think that Sting and Rogue are using the 2nd generation version of Dragon Force, its strong and gives them a power boost, but not as strong as the original first generation's dragon force is, which they also have the potential to awaken.
yeah, it could be the scaled down version of the real thing - artificial DF.. but i think that Natsu was just that stronger. Like in the fight with Zero.. Natsu entered DF, but Zero had little trouble fighting him. However, no doubt that current Natsu's DF would just blow everyone away.
However in Fairy Tail the whole overcoming everything with a power of friendship feels a bit dull.. In One Piece it's at least done in a great fashion instead of being too generic :P. Don't get me wrong, I like Fairy Tail a lot, but there's always room for improvement and I hope that Hiro Mashima realizes that.
In the end not Natsu nor any other known living Dragonslayer is a 1st gen, Natsu, Gajeel and Wendy may have been trained like the originals from the war, but so were Sting and Rouge, they even got an upgrade. Of course those 3rd gens without nakama-ai-mahou-powers have stayed weaker than Natsu in their match up.
Zirconis is a candidate for the villainous team's arc deserter. It happens like clock work that a good mage rehabs a dark magic user. I consider the Dragons the start of a new arc, so new roster for rehab. He is likeable and getting tons of screen time.
The question / Theory I propose is ...
Q1) With 7 new dragons will a new dragon slayer be created by or from a dragon?
Q2) Will any of the current DS absorb a new magic to hybridize their Lost magic?
A1) Yes either taught by Zilconis (rehabed) to one of the 4 pervs of Blue Pegasus or Romeo bathing in Atlas Flame's Power.
A2) Yes but not by Gajeel or Natsu (they already have 2 each). Laxus is too boss to need it from Atlas. Wendy is still way below her maximum with her first. Likely either Cobra or Sting, doubt Rogue.
First time making a thread. Don't know if this was ever done most likely, but I'm wondering based on the last few chapters, if you had the ability to be a dragonslayer what kind of dragon slaying abilities do you think you would like to have or see in the manga (topic goes into elemental abilities, physical abilities or anything you can imagine).
I like the Holy Dragon but I want healing/priest powers and fighting powers, a Paladin without a sword or armor. I'm interested in the Jade Dragon but not the stripping part but I am interested in the Jade part. It would be cool to make Jade armor and Jade constructs kind of like Ice Make but Jade Make, dragon style.
Hey guys, now that we got our 7 Dragon Slayers, and that we know just how the number 7 is important in Fairy Tail.
Do you think those are all the Dragon Slayers we will see in this manga, or are you expecting more to be revealed?
Logically there should be a great number of them out there, but at this point of the story I think it will be kind of redundant for more Dragon slayers to appear from no where and all of a sudden have some relevance.
mayve they will appear in flashbacks or maybe even in a timetravel arc but I guess those seven are the main DS and there won't join any new ones (only exception if laxus and cobra will be replaced by 1. or 3. generation DS)
If you look closely on the fight between Acnologia and Fairy Tail, you will see, that, before The Dragon King ''obliterated'' Tenrou Island with his Signature Dragons Roar, he sucked up a huge amount of water.
So my point behind that is the theory that Acnologia may be the (former) Water Dragon Slayer and maybe through his slaying of a whole herd of Dragons and thorugh Zeref, even got a 2 or even Multiple Dragon Mode himself (like Lightning-Flame-Dragon-Mode and Iron-Shadow-Mode f.e.) and therefore is so incredibly powerful (being able to erase an entire country of the world map with one single strike and of ruling the future on his own).
I just checked the fight in the manga and the anime and neither actually look like if acknologia is gathering water. The resulting explosion from his dragon breath does not appear to be the result of water either for that matter.
On another note, why hasn't anyone drawn a good fanart of the seven DS yet?? I want it to replace my old sig.....
T^T But i want an Ice dragon.Why? Look at my avatar >.>.Fire dragons and FDS magic are boring =.=
But maybe you'd like Jura to be a 2nd gen Stone DS?? I'm kind of hoping for Jura to get the stone dragon's lachryma and implant it in himself. But then again, he'd overpowered as hell and become the Madara of FT.
