I hate how people say that Gray is Natsu’s equivalent. I’m not saying Gray is weak, it’s just that he isn’t actually as strong as Natsu. I mean, do you really think Gray could have defeated Zero? What about Sting and Rogue? Gray definitely could not have defeated two 3rd generation dragon slayers using dragon force by going against them with ice. I could go on and on about this, but that’s all I’m going to say. Again, I know Gray is strong. But Natsu is just stronger no matter how you look at it.
