Winx Club Forever
|This article is about the Fairy Form. You may be looking for the song.|
In Season 3, Faragonda introduces Enchantix to the Alfea fairies upon their return from spring break. Enchantix is the "Final Fairy Form" in a fairy's formal educational journey to become a full-fledged fairy. In Alfea's curriculum, earning Enchantix is considered their final exam. Enchantix fairies who graduate from Alfea are also the Guardian Fairies of their respective homeworlds, bound to protect their worlds from evil and destruction.
Enchantix fairies wear flowing clothes and barefoot sandals. They have big colorful wings that have jewels hanging off of them. Their outfits are brightly colored and sometimes intricate. They wear barefoot sandals decorated with jewels that sometimes go up to their calves. Individually, hair may change color and/or grow. The hair is often decorated, braided, beaded, etc. Fairies also sometimes wear a tiara or other elaborate jewelry. They often wear a choker or necklace that holds a bottle of Fairy Dust.
RequirementsIn order for a fairy to earn Enchantix, she must rescue someone from her homeworld and show great sacrifice in doing so.
Tecna does not save anyone specifically from her own realm; she saves the realm of Andros by closing the Omega Portal. It is assumed that Tecna does save the entire universe, which encompasses her homeworld, by sacrificing herself to close the portal on the assumption that unstoppable evil would ensue had she not.
Bloom, by believing in her power to defeat evil (after meditating with the sorceress Maia on Pyros) is able to will herself into Enchantix. Bloom would not have gotten her Enchantix if not for her inner dragon, Buddy, who had shown up prior to Bloom meeting Maia. Her unconventional method of earning Enchantix results in it being incomplete, meaning she cannot use her miniaturization powers and can easily lose control.
Passion for another person's life is a key factor in triggering a fairy's Enchantix status, i.e. when Galatea volunteers to perish in the library fire to give Musa a chance to escape, Musa refuses to leave her friend. Her love for her friend was is strong that it is enough to earn Musa her Enchantix. However, since Galatea is the princess of Musa's homeworld, this implies she gains her Enchantix in the conventional way by saving someone from her realm.
Along with an increase in magical strength and endurance, Enchantix allows fairies to use Fairy Dust to miniaturize, break dark spells, and various other things. Enchantix wings are sustainable at higher wind speeds than those of a standard fairy. Enchantix also allows fairies to earn Higher Fairy Forms such as Believix.
