==Overview==
Fairies are magical creatures that live throughout the [[Magic Dimension]]. Their source of power are the light aspects of magic such as positive feelings. However, some fairies use their powers for evil. Fairies can create emotional or empathic bond with [[pixie]]s, [[Selkie]]s, and [[Fairy Animal]]s. Fairies have the option to switch to a witch and vice versa, although this is a rare case. While most known fairies are female, male fairies do exist.

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

Overview

Fairies are magical creatures that live throughout the Magic Dimension. Their source of power 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. 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 or have a lust for power.

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

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. While most known fairies are female, male fairies do exist as seen in Winx Club: Magical Adventure.

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 but this is very uncommon.

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.
