Lisanna Strauss is a character from the Fairy Tail anime and manga.

Lisanna is the the youngest of the Strauss siblings uses a variety of Takeover called Animal Soul to assume the forms and abilities of animals. She's also Natsu's childhood sweetheart, and helped him hatch Happy as an egg. Though she was seemingly killed after a mission with her siblings went tragically awry, it turned out that she was actually sucked into the parallel world of Edolas. After being mistaken for her own Edolas counterpart by her friends from her old world two years later, her true identity is discovered after getting sent back to Earth-land with the others, and she happily reunites with her friends and family.

In the XP4 fics, Lisanna debuted in XP4 Heroes Coalition - Kick-Off!.

In the AWA fics, Lisanna is a student at the AWA Academy.


Lisanna is shown as a young petite girl with short, white hair and blue eyes. As a child, Lisanna wore a simple, pink dress paired with dark red shoes. Before being sent to Edolas, her hair was quite longer, and she wore a short, dark red dress with a white collar and bow. Up on her arms above her elbows, she wore gold rings with a pale pink fabric flowing down from them. She wore tall, black socks along with brown shoes. In Edolas, Lisanna wore a tank top with crossed straps with a longer skirt. A sash with the Fairy Tail mark was tied around her waist and she wore sandals. Her hair was also worn shorter than it was in Earth Land. After Lisanna arrives back in Earth Land, she wears a light-blue striped shirt, with green short-shorts and sneakers. On Tenrou Island, Lisanna wears light green shirt and blue pantie-shorts with a pair of purple slippers. After the 7 year time skip and during the Grand Magic Games Arc, Lisanna is seen wearing pink spaghetti shirt with a ribbon in the middle and long jeans with flower patterns on it.

Her member stamp was originally red and was located on her left arm just below the shoulder, however, as she was being sucked into the Anima, her member stamp disappeared. In Edolas, she changed her stamp to white and it is now located on her left thigh.


When Lisanna was younger, she was very kind like Elfman was as a child. She wanted to help Natsu Dragneel raise an unknown egg to see what comes out of it, being a little more knowledgeable than Natsu. After seeing a softer side of the usually flamboyant Natsu, she stated that he was a lot like her sister and joked that perhaps later she should become his bride/wife which predictably freaked him out. Whilst raising the egg with him, he learned it was "impossible" to win in an argument with her. Lisanna apparently likes animals (especially cats) but she hates studying. Because of her personality, she can easily adjust and be accepted by anyone.

Take Over ( Teiku Ōbā): Like Elfman and Mirajane, Lisanna uses 'Take Over Magic. Her transformation is based on transforming her body into animal and hybrid-animal forms which is called Animal Soul (Animaru Sōru). She can use her Take Over transformations in a variety of ways, and was seen augmenting her physical capabilities and parameters during combat through their use. Lisanna is able to chain five Take Overs instantly when she fights with Azuma. According to Mirajane, this is a high level Take Over technique.

  • Animal Soul: Bird (Tori): Lisanna resembles a bird with green and pinkish feathers. She used this form to raise and warms an egg that Natsu found in a forest.
  • Animal Soul: Wings: Lisanna transforms only her arms into wings whilst retaining the rest of her human features.
  • Animal Soul: Harpy: Lisanna transforms only her arms and lower body into those of a bird and flies whilst retaining the rest of her human features.
  • Animal Soul: Rabbit (Usagi): Lisanna transformed herself into a giant purple rabbit in order to build the hideout that was meant to hatch Natsu's egg. Was later used in Juvia and her's battle against Erza.
  • Animal Soul: Fish: Lisanna takes on the form of a small fish that gives her the ability to swim and breathe underwater.
  • Animal Soul: Cat (Kyatto): Lisanna partially takes on the form of a feline. In this state, she is mostly humanoid, with longer hair in the manga while in the anime her hair remains unaltered. Concentrated striped patterns appear around her forearms, as well as feline-like pads on the surface of her palms and sharp claws at her fingertips. She also sports feline ears, whiskers, a small feline nose, and a long tail, but otherwise retains her human features. In this state, her attire changes as well: Lisanna appears to be garbed in a tiger-skin, 2-piece bikini. While in this form, she gains speed with which she uses for her fierce scratches from her claws to overwhelm meager opponents into submission. However, this form is useless against any brute strength type of opponents. Upon learning Take Over Animal Soul for the first time, this was the spell Lisanna has used and the suit was slightly different, despite that she was young.
  • Animal Soul: Penguin: Lisanna resembles a form of a giant penguin. Utilizing the momentum gained from her excessive weight, she can smash her opponents or attack them.
  • Animal Soul: Mermaid: Lisanna takes the form of a mermaid. She is mostly humanoid with a purple tail. This allows her to be able to breathe underwater.
  • Animal Soul: Pig: Lisanna transform into a small pig, with ears slightly longer and retaining only her hair.
  • Animal Soul: Bunny: Lisanna partially takes on the form of a bunny with slightly longer ears sticking up and white fur body and dark colored legs having only retaining her face, head and hair humanoid. This form enhances her kicks as she attacks her opponents.

Triple Unison Explosion: Lisanna uses her Animal Soul: Wings spell and fuses Levy's Solid Script: Storm in one wing with Cana's Explosion Cards in the other to create a tornado of fire and wind that is fired at the target.


  • In the anime, it shows Lisanna was presumed killed when a berserk Elfman smacked her and sent her flying into the forest.
    • Shinji Ishihira, the anime director for Fairy Tail, stated he purposefully left the matter of her death up in the air in the anime in the hopes that she was alive, which is proven to be true as of chapter 199.
  • In the anime Lisanna's grave is located both at her childhood base where she and Natsu raised Happy's egg, because Natsu made a grave of his own for Lisanna and in the Cathedral Church. In the manga, her grave is shown only in the courtyard of Cathedral Church.
  • Lisanna's guild member stamp in the anime was located on her left upper arm and was red, but the stamp disappeared when she got sucked into the Anima. After she is in Edolas, it is seen that she got re-stamped on her left upper leg, colored white, the same place and color as her older sister, Mirajane's.
  • When she was a child, her dress was seen as pink in the anime, but in the manga, it's illustrated as a grayish blue.
  • Her grave at Kardia Cathedral read: Lisanna beloved sister and friend to animal souls. X768 ~ X782
