After the end of the initial vertex attacks, the Taisha decided to publicly announce their intents of halting the Hero System in exchange for a ceasefire from the Sky Gods who were sending the vertex. In the meantime, they were secretly developing the Hero System for a counterattack in the future, a project which spanned for about 300 years. As allowing a Spirit enter a human body, even if it was a Hero's, would leave some side effects such as being less in control of their emotions, Nogi Wakaba proposed to downsize the Fairies into mascots who would also double for the role of emotional support for the Heroes instead of allowing them inside their bodies in order to repeat the tragedy of Koori Chikage, and Uesato Hinata pushed the rest of the Taisha into implementing them into the improvised Hero System used by future generations.

Non Canon Edit
Owned by Gin Minowa Edit
Despite never having a fairy in-universe, it was revealed that if Gin ever had a fairy, it would be named Nurikabe. The original creature it is based on would manifest as a wall, "that impedes or misdirects walking travelers at night. Trying to go around is futile as it extends itself forever". Note this was meant to be a joke.

Trump Cards Edit
Trump Cards were the early usage of Spirits, imbuing their power into one's body and giving them a tremendous set of skills. Any girl could pick one, but they often stayed with 1 or 2. A Trump Card is incredibly dangerous, as it can bring a huge amount of physical kickback onto the body and even mind, as evidenced by Chikage's mental snap.
This system was scrapped, and replaced with the current Hero System.
- In the Washio Sumi film adaption, Sonoko gives her first fairy a nickname, Sebastian.
- Gyuuki is often seen trying to eat Karin's fairy, Yoshiteru. In episode 7, Yuna is seen chewing on Karin's arm out of hunger, referencing this.
- Although Gin and the original 6 heroes never had fairies, they were given them in the Hanayui no Kirameki video game. Most of them are based upon their Trump Cards, which is a spirit in itself.
