The hit shonen anime Fairy Tail is all about the bonds of friendship and family that give people strength, and sure enough, everyone in the Fairy Tail guild sees each other as beloved friends and comrades worth fighting for. Lucy Heartfilia fled her reclusive, wealthy household to seek adventure and friends, and she found both at the Fairy Tail guild.

Lucy Heartfilia has a close circle of best friends, mainly the flame-eating Natsu Dragneel and the tough but kind Erza Scarlet as teammates (and not to mention Happy the cat). Lucy would love to make even more friends from across the world of anime, and these will be friendships to stand the test of time.
10 Orihime Inoue Knows How To Share Her Heart With Friends (Bleach)
Orihime Inoue is everyone’s good friend, with her gentle and sweet personality, but she’s not naive. Orihime knows how much it hurts to lose someone close to her, such as her big brother Sora Inoue, and she understands that an intangible “heart” will keep her close to her friends at all times, regardless of distance.
When captured by Ulquiorra Schiffer, Orihime had faith that this shared heart would bring her friends to her for rescue, and she was right. Lucy would be moved to tears, and gladly accept Orihime as her new friend. Lucy has a big heart to share, too.
9 Narumi Momose & Lucy Would Have So Much Fun Together (Wotakoi: Love Is Hard For Otaku)
Narumi Momose may be in her late 20s rather than her late teens like Lucy is, but the two of them would get along great if they ever met. Narumi is young at heart, and she is passionate about her creative hobbies, mainly drawing doujins. Lucy is a creative person too, seeking a career in journalism.
The two of them have similar personalities, and although Lucy wouldn’t join Narumi in a bar, the two of them could have fun elsewhere, such as at an amusement park or a lively downtown market. They’d have so much to talk about.
8 Naruto Uzumaki Also Loves Friends & Adventure (Naruto)
Naruto Uzumaki may be loud and annoying at times, but he has a heart of gold, and his isolation made him a kinder person, not a cruel one. Naruto is determined to be the best, and he is ready to make all kinds of friends and allies along the way. Lucy can appreciate that.

Naruto absolutely cherishes his friends and teammates, risking his very life for their sake more than once (such as when he tried to bring Sasuke back to the village). Naruto and Lucy also share a flair for adventure and exploration, eager to see the big, wide world around them.
7 Princess Shuna Would Remind Lucy Of Herself (That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime)
In some ways, Princess Shuna of the ogre village would remind Lucy of herself, and for all the right reasons. Shuna is a high-born person who doesn’t let her lofty position get to her head, and she is also well-dressed and has made lots of friends ever since she met Rimuru Tempest.
Shuna gets along with everyone in Rimuru’s diverse city, and she has a charming, upbeat personality that Lucy would absolutely love. Shuna and Lucy would have all kinds of fun trying on different outfits together, teasing Benimaru a bit, and enjoying a festival later that evening.
6 Winry Rockbell & Lucy Would Respect Each Other’s Talents Greatly (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood)
Winry Rockbell, an automail mechanic, is a lot like Lucy Heartfilia in Fullmetal Alchemist. She is the tough but sweet friend to the hotheaded shonen lead, and she is totally dedicated to her craft. Winry and Lucy even look and act somewhat similar, except that Winry has blue eyes and not brown ones.

Winry has a passion for all things mechanical, mainly automail, while Lucy’s heart is set on journalism and creative writing. Both girls would be delighted to meet and learn more about each other’s areas of expertise, and they’d get along great on a personal level, too.
5 Diane The Giant Would Befriend Lucy At Once (The Seven Deadly Sins)
Diane is a giantess from the land of Megadozer, and she favors peace and love over war and martial glory, which puts her at odds with most other giants. Diane used to be insecure about her role in the world and even her appearance, but Meliodas accepted her for who she was, and she was deeply grateful.
Lucy would also warmly accept Diane for who she is, and they would share a passion for adventure and excitement in the colorful kingdom of Liones. Diane’s personality would mesh well with Lucy’s, too, and she’d be fascinated by Lucy’s Celestial spirit keys.
4 Kohaku & Lucy Would Make A Great Team (Dr. Stone)
Kohaku the warrior has a hotter temper than Lucy does, but otherwise, these two blonde heroines would get along great. Kohaku has a strong sense of loyalty and honor, looking after her sickly sister Ruri while also serving as one of Senku’s most reliable bodyguards. She knows the value of teamwork and trust.

Lucy can appreciate that, and Kohaku is a wild and free spirit who’d love to bring Lucy along on an adventure across this stone-age world. She and Lucy would have much to learn from one another, and together, they could take on any threat.
3 Tohru Honda Is A Gentle Soul & Good Friend (Fruits Basket)
Lucy Heartfilia isn’t afraid of a fight, but ultimately, she is a lover, not a fighter, and she would like more than anything to make a world where everyone can understand one another and live in peace. There’s another anime heroine who feels that way, too — Tohru Honda.
Tohru has a compassionate and generous spirit, and she won’t give up on any of her dear friends until they have overcome all their inner demons and made peace with themselves and others. She’s also a polite and friendly young lady, and Lucy would be thrilled to meet her (and vice versa).
2 Filo Needs A Big Sister Figure In Her Life (The Rising Of The Shield Hero)
The young filolial (bird-person) simply named Filo hatched recently, and she imprinted on Naofumi Iwatani, the shield hero. Filo is a cheerful but inexperienced adventurer, and she is competing with Raphtalia the demi-human for Naofumi’s attention. Perhaps it’s time to shake things up.
Lucy would be delighted to become Filo’s mother hen instead and raise her as an adorable younger sister who needs love and attention. Filo would take an instant liking to Lucy, and Lucy could provide all her Celestial spirits for Filo to hang out with.
1 Izuku Midoriya Is The Hero Lucy Always Needed (My Hero Academia)
In many ways, Izuku Midoriya is a classic shonen protagonist just like Natsu Dragneel, though with some minor differences. Izuku isn’t a total hothead like Natsu and channels his competitive spirit more constructively. Izuku is thoughtful, analytical, and practical, not to mention a great friend.
Lucy wouldn’t find Izuku quite as exciting as Natsu, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Izuku has a better sense of boundaries than Natsu does, and he’s much more considerate of others. And like Natsu, Izuku will fight hard for all the friends and allies dear to him, and Lucy will be blown away. She’d love a chance to meet him.
