The Fairies are magical creatures living throughout the Magic Dimension that appear in Winx Club and World of Winx. They are the magical opposite of witches.

Fairies use their powers for good, protect the Magic Dimension from the forces of evil, and work to help others.

However some fairies use their powers for evil or ally with dark forces for selfish means, and others, while not necessarily evil, stray to the dark side and do bad things, such as seek vengeance, have a lust for power or betray their masters. Some of these Fairies become Dark Fairies.

Physical Appearance

All fairies are mostly human in appearance with some being composed of pure energy or resembling animals or elves. Fairies usually wear colorful clothing to reflect their light magic, but some have been shown to wear dark Gothic clothing, although this is very uncommon. While most known fairies are female, male fairies do exist as seen in Winx Club: Magical Adventure.

Portraits of the Ancestral Fairies.

The nine Nymphs of Magix ruled the fate of the Magic Dimension after the disappearance of the Great Dragon. Long ago, seven Ancestral Fairies crossed over from the Legendarium World and spread their magic throughout all the worlds in the Magic Dimension, including the Earth.

Other ancient, all-powerful fairies such as Arcadia, the first fairy, and the Ethereal Fairies, the guardians of the Gifts of Destiny, live outside of space and time.

In ancient times, Earth was protected by Earth Fairies, but then the Wizards of the Black Circle found a way to resist the fairies' magic and absorb it and began the Great Fairy Hunt which lasted for centuries. The absence of fairy magic allowed pestilence, wars, and hatred to instill upon the Earth.

Fairies must attend school to become full-fledged fairies and master their powers. To do so, most fairies attend Alfea. There, the fairies are taught and trained to develop and increase their powers and to use their powers responsibly so as to help preserve the Magic Dimension and fight against evil using light magic.

Other schools fairies are known to attend include the Linphea College, the Eraklyon Institute, the Golden Auditorium, and Tir Na Nog College.

Fairy Forms

Main article: Fairy Form

Fairy Forms or Transformations are different levels of power that fairies can attain as an extension of their magical abilities. Fairies' abilities are limited in their civilian forms. To increase their magical abilities, they transform into fairies and are able to use their powers with greater ease, gain wings, and new clothes and accessories. There are standard fairy levels, which are gained during a fairy's formal educational journey to become a full-fledged fairy, and an infinite number of higher fairy levels and acquired powers meant for specific situations.

Fairies and Witches

There is also a notable rivalry between fairies and witches. Their opposed natures often cause tension between the two groups, including exclusion from certain events or physical confrontation when provoked. It has been stated that witches do not like fairies because they think fairies live easy lives.

Despite this, Fairies and witches have been seen working together in times of hardship or realm-wide emergencies, and can cooperate after some time together. There are also significant and long-lasting friendships made between fairies and witches, even with some friendly rivalry. Fairies have the option to switch to a witch and vice versa, although this is a rare case

Magical Abilities

The source of power of Fairies are the light aspects of magic such as positive feelings typically related to a specific theme or aspect of life, such as war, love, wisdom, Nature, music and Oceans.

Just like witches, each fairy has a specific power. The magic of every fairy is fueled by their positive feelings such as happiness, love, and etc. Fairies are able to fly but only when they are transformed. All fairies know some basic, first level spells such as telekinesis, transmuting objects, and fixing minor messes. Fairies can converge with witches and wizards, if they are strong enough.

Fairies can form a magical bond with Pixies, Selkies, and Fairy Animals.
