Summary

Acnologia, known to be fearsomely reputed as the Dragon King, was a cataclysmically powerful Dragon Slayer that can take the form of a Dragon at any time due to his overuse of Dragon Slayer Magic and bathing in the blood of the Dragons he killed. He was referred to as Doctor in his early life that took care of Dragons. However, due to them murdering his family, destroying his city, and "claiming" the life of a child, he took it upon himself using the name of the Dragon whom he despised to slay every Dragon in existence, believing they only cause destruction and pain.

Far more durable than a Savage Dragon Fire Form Natsu that was enchanted to be at least 2x more durable than normal) | Large Planet level (As a Dragon, his Durability is far above his Attack Power due to having incredibly durable scales)

Stamina: Superhuman (Capable of defeating two armies of thousands of dragons alone and emerging as the only survivor. Even dragons of Igneel's caliber have a hard time harming Acnologia in any significant way, with Acnologia enduring Igneel's enormous fire breath strike and emerging unscathed. Has shown no signs of exhaustion from any of his battles. He can also eat magic to restore his magic power and stamina)

Range: Standard melee range. Several hundreds of meters to several kilometers with ranged attacks and senses.

Standard Equipment: None notable

Intelligence: Gifted (Has had hundreds of years of experience in battle and has knowledge of many different kinds of magic, being able to identify Irene as a High Enchanter almost immediately. He was able to find out how to transform into a Human Form on his own, which Irene was incapable of figuring out, even after 400 years of trying. Acnologia is a master of hand-to-hand fighting and magic. He often uses his Dragon Slayer Magic in conjunction with punches and kicks to devastating effect. He was able to single-handily take on Natsu, Gajeel, Wendy, Laxus, Cobra, Sting, and Rogue at the same time with little difficulty, being able to beat them all down even while they all worked together to fight him. However, after consuming the Space Between Time, his body and soul are separated, but are still linked to each other. While the soul retains his personality and intellect, the body transforms into a beast whose one goal is destruction. Still, the body can immediately detect and eliminate what it perceives as a threat.)

Weaknesses: Should be weak to Dragon Slayer Magic in his Dragon Form. Acnologia also suffers from motion sickness as a result of his Dragon Slayer Magic, which causes him to become severely nauseous while riding transportation. Acnologia cannot eat the Magic created from his own Dragon Slayer Magic to replenish his stamina. After consuming the Space Between Time, his separated body and soul parts are linked to each other, and should one part be restrained, so will the other.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Arcane Dragon Slayer Magic: As one of the first humans who entered the Dragon King Festival, Acnologia was also among the first Dragon Slayers brought into existence. Acnologia's Dragon Slayer Magic has no specific element as consuming and soaking in the blood of countless dragons has enabled him to replenish himself with any type of Magic, earning him the title of the Arcane Dragon. Over time, as Acnologia slew many Dragons, he eventually turned into a Dragon due to the extensive overuse of his Lost Magic. Acnologia, contrary to the legends surrounding him, did not entirely become a Dragon and has retained the ability to enter and exit his mighty Dragon Form at will. Acnologia's Dragon Slayer Magic also allows him to reap the souls of Dragons, leaving them in a half-dead state.

  • Arcane Dragon's Roar: Similar to other Dragons and Dragon Slayers, Acnologia can perform a Dragon's Roar, which takes the form of a massive breath attack of pure Magic that creates a huge explosion on impact. Said blast, while he was a Dragon, was potent enough to "completely eradicate" the entirety of Tenrou Island and imprint a giant crater into the ocean.
  • Arcane Dragon's Eruption: Acnologia raises his hand and erupts a blast of Magic beneath his opponent.
  • Arcane Dragon's Flash: Acnologia raises his finger and fires a giant blast of Magic at his opponents.
  • Arcane Dragon's Breath: Acnologia opens his mouth and fires off numerous explosions.
  • Arcane Dragon's Explosion: Acnologia exerts his Magic omnidirectionally, causing a huge explosion.
  • Eternal Flare: Acnologia casts starry lights in the sky, which rain down in a massive radius as beams with an intense destructive force that create huge explosions on impact.

Time Magic: After consuming the Space Between Time, Acnologia is able to wield this Caster Magic, which gives him control of space and time. With this power, he could teleport the seven Dragon Slayers into his world with a Rift in Space and Time. By warping the Dragon Slayers into his world, he could trap them in crystal-like pillars that allow him to balance his own Magic Power. This power was so great that it would eventually enable Acnologia to surpass space and time.
