- Vidia: Sweetness, what is the only thing that's important to me?
- Prilla: Well, fast-flying, of course!
- Vidia: And why is that?
- Prilla: Because you like to...fly quickly?
- Vidia: Because it's my talent, pumpkin. The most important thing to any fairy is her talent.
- — Prilla and Vidia discuss talents
Each Never Fairy has a single talent that allows him or her to contribute to fairy society and (in the films) bring the seasons to the Mainland. Some fairies manipulate light, some can communicate with animals, and some tell stories or play music - and that's just a start.
Talents are inherent to the fairy and cannot be "changed." In the films, a talent requiring magic cannot be learned by a fairy of another talent. In The Trouble With Tink, non-water-talent fairy Prilla learned how to make small fountains in her soup from water-talent fairies, though this took some practice and was nowhere near the potential skill of an actual water-talent fairy.

Discovering Talents - In the Films
In the animated film Tinker Bell, a test was used to determine Tink's talent as soon as she was "born." Queen Clarion summoned ten mushroom pedestals upon which fairies from different talent guilds placed an item representing their talent - a blossom for garden fairies, an orb of water for water fairies, a tiny whirlwind for fast-flying fairies, a gemstone for mining fairies etc. The item floated slightly above the pedestal until it was touched; when Tinker Bell touched an object that did not correlate with her talent, it stopped floating and in the case of objects like the water drop and whirlwind, collapsed and dispersed. When Tink passed by the tinker's hammer, it floated toward her and glowed brightly when she took hold of it. It's indicated that the more talent potential a fairy has, the brighter the object will glow.
