Pantherlily (パンサーリリー Pansārirī?) is a black-furred exceed from the parallel universe of Edolas. He is initially depicted as a large, muscular, anthropomorphic panther, unlike most other exceeds, who appear as small, super deformed cat-like creatures. Upon leaving Edolas and entering Earthland, however, he takes on his race's typical super deformed appearance, though he is able to assume his original form for limited periods of time. He also possesses the "Aera" ability, allowing him to fly by growing wings on his back, and is an expert swordsman. His signature sword, Bustermarm (バスターマァム Masutāmāmu?), has an extendable blade that extends up to three times his large form's size. After this sword is destroyed, he replaces it with a sword called the Musica Sword (ムジカの剣 Mujika no Ken?), which can also change its size. Pantherlily is introduced as the captain of the 1st Magic War Division in the Edolas Kingdom's royal army, having been exiled from his people's kingdom of Extalia after saving Mystogan's life. Like Happy and Charle, Pantherlily befriends the Dragon Slayer Gajeel after fighting with him, and later becomes a member of Fairy Tail as Gajeel's partner. He is voiced by Hiroki Tōchi.
