They are creatures called Pixies (called "minifate", meaning "mini-fairies" in the Italian version) in the Magic Dimension.The role of the pixies is to bond to fairies so as to help them with their powers in some way. They help their bonded fairies in their way of becoming real accomplished fairies. Most pixies first appeared on the second season and only made minor appearances on the fourth season. They will also not appear in Season 5.It is official that the pixies will be returning in Season 6. The pixies also appear in the Season 6 opening. Prior to the introduction of the Pixies in Season 2, the Witches used the term "pixies" as an insult to the fairies in the first season of the 4Kids dub, at which time the term had no other meaning in the series.
The Pixies small creatures with heads that are larger in comparison to their baby-like body. They have wings and are able to earn transformations. Baby Pixies are about 5 cm tall, young Pixies are about 8 cm tall, and adult Pixies are about 10 cm tall.
Various pixies have various powers and talents. It is revealed in "The Legendarium" that they can also teleport back to Pixie Village, although it is unknown if they can teleport to other places. And of course, the pixies can fly.
There are four Guardian Pixies that protect the Codex at the four main places in Magix: Alfea, Red Fountain, Cloud Tower, and the Pixie Village, respectively Concorda, Athena, Discorda and Ninfea. They are more powerful than the other Pixies.

Pop PixieA group of inseparable friends who are always ready to help each other; Pixies are well-mannered and caring, cheerful, courageous and spunky, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.
They are full of energy and always ready to lend a hand. More than anything, Pixies would like everyone to be as happy because of this at times they tend to exaggerate.
Unlike Original Winx series, male Pixies can be seen in this series and their heads are less disproportionate compared to their bodies, they no longer have unique wings in civilian form, but small alike wings, and even baby pixies like Piff can talk.

- Pixies were wondering which one of them would bond with Roxy, but that hasn't been answered yet as their role during Season 4 was minor and they haven't made any appearance during Season 5.
- The Selkies are rumored to be underwater pixies as both races are small and can bond with a fairy.
- Both pixies and selkies live in villages.
- The only difference is the pixies live in one village while the selkies live in many villages.
- The Pixies returned in Season 6, only this time their appearance is based on what they looked like on PopPixie.
- It is theorized that the pixies can change their bonding, as in Season 6 Tecna and Musa having new bondings, despite Tune and Digit are still seen in Pixie Village, or maybe just an error from the developer.
- In the sixth season, the pixies are much older. Also, they can defend themselves just like normal fairies do.
- In Season 6, it was discussed by Daphne and Eldora that the power of bonding might overpower the Alfea Champions, the strongest fairies in Magix.
