Group Strength[]

The Circles are among the most powerful characters in the entire series at the moment, even though they haven't actually been seen in action yet. Chitsujo himself recognizes them to be the third biggest threat to the Alliance behind Konton and the Acts of Chaos and that the only reason they aren't involved at the moment is because his own elite soldiers, the Seven Saint Warriors, are keeping them in check. Sagi even stated to Zeref Dragneel, that should the elites of Rakuen and the elites of Menou fight, they would destroy an world.

Two members, Itan and Yoku, singlehandedly killed the entire Edolas Royal Army and most of Edolas Fairy Tail, captured the highest ranking officers for indoctrination, and grievously injured King Mystogan.

Later, Yoku was shown to have levelled an entire forest with a single attack. He later punished his own Court, a group that's incredibly powerful in their own right, showing that the gap between Court members and the Circles is very wide.


Each of the Nine Dark Circles have a Court of Elite Soldiers working under their command. According to Chitsujo, who was speaking to Nico Robin at the time, Court members are strong enough to fight direct subordinates of the Four Emperors, like Jesus Burgess and win, who in the past was defeated by Sabo, the commander of Alliances Second Division, which leads to suspect there are those who could be on the level of a commander of the Alliance. Chitsujo even added they could match a member of the Akatsuki (all S-Rank Ninja), and a few of them could be even stronger than that, before adding that it would take an elite Jōnin or one of the Kage to defeat one of them. He also added that they could fight on with S-Class Wizards, Wizards Saints and Soul Reaper Captains.

Rakuen's Chief Tax Collectors[]

Is Court the under command of Yoku. As it is suggested their main duty is to collect the taxes from their Kingdom.

Itan's Court[]

Itan has one lone Court member, Yūko. Itan treats her rather friendly, and doesn't demand much formality. One of her main duty's is to watch a local orphanage Itan frequently visits.
