Well aside from the obvious (who they are meant to kill) it's all pretty much the same thing only God Slayer magic seems to be stronger than Dragon Slayer magic of the same element. There's also the fact that while God Slayers can eat Dragon Slayer magic (a Fire God Slayer can eat a Fire Dragon God slayer's attacks) but Dragon Slayers cannot eat God Slayer magic.
Ah yes, God Slayer's elements seem to be coloured black as opposed to their natural colours used by Dragon Slayers.

No one knows yet the origins of God Slaying magic, but most predict that it has something to do with Zeref.

tldr; it's Dragon Slaying 2.0

but i doubt the name god slayer has anything to do with slaying gods. maybe it's just a name given to power that is so strong it's deemed to be stronger than that of a god's.

so it looks like chelia is the one who has that so-called "strange" magic that jellal was talking about, huh?

off-topic: your avatar is creepy! lol

Could be. The first Godslayer we've seen didn't give much of an explanation aside from boasting about how superior he was to Natsu's Dragonslaying.
Honestly I think Mashima just thought "I wanna make Natsu fight a stronger fire dragonslayer." but introducing another could enrage the fans so he made the next best thing, a Godslayer, which is the same only a bit different...and then he probably liked it and rolled with it so now we have 2, maybe 3, godslayers.

What's next? Phoenixslaying? Minotaurslaying? Unicornslaying?

Off topic: Thank you

GS magic was taught to Zancrow by Hades, whose extent of knowledge was immense; from his input, it's lost magic closer to the origin of magic than DS. This can be interpreted as simply an ancient black magic version of DS magic (hence stronger), or its predator, giving DS magic the benefit of evolution (as Mashima did with Cobra's PoV, despite his loss).

It's magic that is supposedly a lot closer to the "source," whatever that is. We'll have to judge once we learn more about that source, and whether there are actual gods, or whether it's just stronger fire magic.

Wendy learned so many offensive spells? Guess she will not be just the 'support' character now.

So, similar to Dragon Slayer magic, god Slayer magic is another branch of unique magic? If its so pretty soon we will see all the other elemental god slaying magic, laying the foundation for future characters eh?

Perhaps it's just me, but it looks like all God slaying magic has a bad vibe behind it, according to their legend in the manga. I just hope that not all God slaying magic users are bad people just because of their lost magic. People seem to think now that Chelia and Orga are disciples of Zeref, or at least, under his mind control.

I would agree 100% on the statement above, if only Zeref hadn't...you know, like, killed Zancrow in cold blood. Also, Zeref was away when Hades thrived, and it was under his wing that Zancrow learned GS magic.

And as I am typing this, epiphany: Chelia is in fact a double spy for Arcadios in exchange for power :O He's a Zeref fanboy, he's plotting something, sounds good enough to have him manipulate her.

IIRC, none of Totomaru's flames were black, and that's who Romeo gets his other flame magic from.

Can I ship Wendy X Romeo??
Sure. The fan art of them has already started, and it makes more sense than some of crack pairings out there.

I didn't. I'm talking about stuff like Lisanna x Bixlow, or Natsu x Juvia.

Why make unicorn slayers when you can have exceed-slayers? They were gods in a parallel world and Happy already has a class he teaches...aye!

If you want Slayers, you can have puppy-slayers(Poor Quatro Puppy), loli-slayer(Eat them lolis!), Fairy-slayer(also known as Nakama-slayer).

Well back to topic... I got nothing....
Btw to me it seems that God-slaying magic is stronger then Dragon-slaying, but I have a suspicion that God-slaying magic has only 1 level, but Dragon-slaying magic has 2 levels, at base it is weaker then God-slayer, but at 2 level (Dragon Force) it becomes stronger then God-slayer.

Hope Wendy manages to protect her cutest loli title... er I mean protect her Guilds current performance.
