Zeref is a shit and trash character. Pathetic emo fails as a villian and is dull looking.
First of all, his appearance is one of my favorites in the whole series. That said, let’s get started. You call him a pathetic emo, but if your whole family got killed, and you were left alone, then you got cursed to kill everything you love or care, would you be the most cheerful and optimistic person of all? If so, then there is something very wrong with you.– Zeref has fought alone for hundreds of years to keep the curse that was in him away from anything that had life, (any single form of life) and even after 400 years killing everything that appears in front of him, he still cares. You think this is the nature of a bad person? Why is his curse so strong? Because he loves too much. He cares too much, and he treasure life most than anyone. Zeref is a bad villain? Does he fail? Well, first of all, Zeref never wanted to be a villain. That was not his choice. He did not wake up and said, “I’m going to start killing everyone now because I want to.” This was imposed on him, imposed because he tried to revive the brother who had died very early. He could not accept it because he loved his brother so much. That is why he was cursed eternity surrounded by death. Natsu is the reason. And even after all this, he kept trying to get rid of the curse that was in him. He tried everything, to the point of creating demons only to kill him. These demons killed innocents? Yes, but it was not by his command, it was a consequence of a desperate act. I’m not saying that Zeref is a good person or an angel. He is not. At that moment he is being as bad as possible. He’s broken. Lost. Hopeless. And yes, he is a villain. He did a lot of shit, but try to meet a character before talking shit about them. Zeref is a trash character you say? Well, he builds an empire by himself. And let’s remember that, Fairy Tail only exists because of him? Because he taught magic to Mavis and the others. He’s in every twist of this series. So tell me, what would be of this series without this shit character? ;)
