Natsu, one of Fairy Tale’s best mages and main protagonists, is a wizard who specializes in fire magic. He is the son of Igneel, a dragon who raised him from an egg to be his successor. Natsu has been seen as one of the strongest wizards for years now with skills that are unmatched by any other mage.
However, there have been many questions about his fate and whether he dies or not during the series. This article will answer all these questions once and for all!
In order to answer the question of whether or not Natsu dies, we will have to talk about what actually happens at the end.
In Fairy Tail’s final battle against Grimoire Heart, Natsu is fighting Hades who has found out that he can’t kill him with his dark magic because of Igneel and so resorts to using a different attack spell on him which turns into an explosion as well as killing off some other fighters in the process. When it becomes clear that they are unable to win this fight considering their injuries after taking down Zeref beforehand, Makarov requests help from Porlyusica and she sends all injured mages back home while also sending them messages telepathically about how much time they have left before.
Natsu and his team have been traveling for a while now in order to kill Zeref, who is the one responsible for all of Fairy Tail’s bad luck. Along the way, they encounter many obstacles that make them stronger as a whole which only leads up to their final battle with Zeref. Natsu successfully kills him but before he can be revived by Igneel, an unknown force separates both parties into different dimensions; this means that when Natsu returns home from this adventure, everyone has aged 20 years without him even realizing it! When he finally arrives back at Magnolia Town (the place where Fairy Tail resides), he finds out that there are no more members left because everyone else died or disappeared.
The two most popular fan theories about the fate of Natsu are that he dies and is killed by Zeref or that he lives but kills himself after killing Zeref.
The first theory states that at the end of Fairy Tail Season X79’s last episode, “Mavis” tells Erza: “the time has come for me to tell you what I’ve been waiting so long to say…I don’t know if it was your destiny or not.” This sentence would imply death in a future battle as his only possible destiny left. In order to kill Zeref, one needs to have an unbreakable will because dying means returning him back into his immortal state once again and makes this feat impossible.
What Happens at the end of Fairy Tail?
The series ends in 2017, during the story’s final confrontation between Natsu and Zeref. A very powerful force created from their own magic clashes with one another when they come face to face. The blast is so strong that it destroys all around them as well as both combatants who were never seen again after disappearing into a hole in space-time created by the collision. This event was called “the Great Magic War.”
During this time, there are events happening elsewhere: Igneel returns for his son which left him shortly before he died; Gray has a vision about what will happen if Natsu dies; Lucy learns she can use her celestial spirit powers without summoning any spirits thanks to the power of her new friends; and Natsu’s son, Ascot talks with his dad about how he never got to see him as a father.
In this episode, we are shown that Zeref is also dead so there is no hope for either character in defeating one another without killing each other in the process. The only person who can save them is Lucy using her celestial spirit powers–a feat she was not capable of before meeting her guildmates at Fairy Tail.
Natsu doesn’t die until after Igneel arrives and Gray learns what will happen if Natsu dies or kills Zeref: everyone on Earth will be killed by Acnologia’s dragon slayer magic which has been building up over centuries.
