Eclipse Leo retains the overall physical physique of his original form, but with minor differences: he has abandoned his sunglasses and suit; he now wears black and gold plate armor (with a blue cape) that has the symbol of the Leo constellation etched upon the front skirt. Additionally, Leo now has extremely long hair that better resembles a mane and has a much more frightening, sinister appearance.


Leo's personality has turned into one that is nearly the complete opposite of his original self's; he now despises women and hates when they are presumptuous enough to assume an affiliation with him. He is also cold and callous regarding his time with Lucy, claiming that he no longer cares about nor remembers her and desires only "perfect freedom", however he has shown that the latter claim is not entirely true and has vague memories of her. Leo is also very intolerant of people who call him "Loke", as he considers himself to be completely rid of the person he once was, becoming extremely violent when people refer to him as such. Leo is also very determined to perform Liberum and seems to be the most obsessed with completing the ritual, as even when it was stopped by Natsu and his friends, Leo came back ready to perform the ritual yet again with new word from Ophiuchus on how to do so even though most of the Eclipse Spirits had been defeated and sent back to the Spirit World at that point. On an unrelated note, Leo is also extremely proud of his Magic, Dark Regulus, and is very confident in its ability to steal away "light" as well as describing it as a light that is not "dirty", but one that longs for freedom. In addition, being related to his Magic, Leo has an obsession with "darkness" conquering everything.


Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Dark Regulus: Dark Regulus, much like its light-based counterpart Regulus, is a Magic that allows Leo to imbue his body parts with the Magic itself for melee combat, however in this case the Magic manifests itself as dark flames. The Magic can also be used for ranged combat, with Leo being able to shoot the dark flames from his palm to attack from afar. Moreover, Dark Regulus has shown the capability to absorb "light", such as Natsu's flames, in order to nullify his foe's attacks while using the absorbed Magic for himself. Additionally, whilst Dark Regulus appears to be unlimited in the amount of flames the user can absorb, there actually is a limit, however the more light that there is to absorb, the longer it lasts and the stronger it becomes. The Magic also appears to be critical for the successful performance of Liberum, as it was used to ignite the Celestial Globe, which then started the entire process.

  • Darkness Hammer: Leo covers his fist in the flames of Dark Regulus and uses it to punch his target.
  • Darkness Sanction: Leo quickly moves to appear in front of his target and engulfs them with the dark flames, dispelling their Magic if they are using any, as well as dealing damage.
  • Darkness Roar: Leo expels dark flames from his mouth (towards his target) that are strong enough to overpower the breath attack of a Fire Dragon Slayer.
  • Darkness Exploding Flame Blade: Using Dark Regulus, Leo sets both of his fists aflame and rushes at his target, delivering a barrage of attacks.
  • Darkness Purge: The user releases a stream of flames from their palm and directs it at their target, pushing them back while dealing damage.

Immense Strength: Leo has, on several occasions dominated Natsu in terms of strength, sending him flying and/or reeling during their multiple altercations. Leo also ignites hands or feet in flames to increase the power of the strikes he can deliver. Also, rather than evade, Leo prefers to block with his bare hands, which in and of itself ends in stalemates with people of Natsu's caliber, further hinting at the levels of strength he possesses.

Enhanced Durability: Helped by his armor, Leo is able to withstand fire-enhanced strikes from Natsu Dragneel with ease, as well as fight extremely demanding battles with little tiring involved.

Master Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Leo is a master of hand-to-hand combat, able to match a physically specialized fighter like Natsu in close quarters altercations with extreme dexterity and flexibility. Leo has also shown the ability to overwhelm Natsu on several occasions, and like the Fairy Tail Mage imbues his limbs with his flames to increase the strength and power of his blows.

Immortality: As a Celestial Spirit, Leo cannot die, unless he is somehow forced to stay in the Human World for too long without the chance to return to the Celestial Spirit World, something which would drain his life force and ultimately kill him. However, should Leo successfully perform Liberum, his immortality will be forfeited in exchange for twelve days of "freedom", after which he will die.


  • Can't stay in the Human World for too long, for it may cause the result of his death.
