** Who saves the day at the end of almost every story arc? Team Natsu. Makorav was GenreSavvy enough to realise that they should be on the same team, since theyv'e had a hand in every crisis since Lucy joined the guild, and Jellal thought that something bad was going to go down at the games. They work well together, are pretty powerful, had experience working together as a team(whereas Erza and Natsu have more experience fighting Laxus and though they could have a civilized conversation, things were still awkward between Erza and Jellal), and he could still put any one else he didn't want to waste on another team. Plus, Natsu (in the anime at least, I'm not that far in the manga) refuses to do missions without Lucy, so he might of just asked for her to be on his team.

In Chapter 11 of Fairy Tail Zero, she's revealed to be [[DeadAllAlong]] and she's an illusion only Mavis can see. But then Yuri finally sees and hears her, and then Precht and Warrod hear her before she disappears. Then in Chapter 13 she's sitting on a tree watching over the founders with Mavis obviously not doing anything to bring her to life. Then in Chapter 491, Zera talks about how Mavis isn't aware of her existence and will disappear when she is, but why? If she had to disappear in Chapter 12 because Mavis' magic was stunted, why did she come back on her own without Mavis? Is she the spirit of the deceased Zera that Mavis resurrected in her illusion or something?

* Several possible reasons: a) She didn't know about the fact until she battled Wendy. b) It's possible she wants a female body. c) It's also possible that by that time she had abandoned the whole "new body" plan and only tried it on Wendy because she was both a Dragon Slayer(Who will never become a dragon) AND an Enchantress, so she would eventually be as powerful as she was right then, while other people would be far less powerful.

** the very fact there a definite percentage of the population actually make's it munch worse. Give how fiore has 17 million people and the top five guild's fighting against alvarez combined is around six hundred. There are only six hundred fighter im Fiore capable of holding their own against Alvarez. A logical problem which really hurt and is quite obvious is that fiore is fighting alone against a whole continent which was stated to have an even greater number of mages than the whole of ishgar let alone Fiore. doubling the number of the top five guilds by a realistic estimation of equal tier mages across the continent alvarez rule's over. They should have atleast seven thousand mage's on par with Fiore best with the spriggan 12 and their squad's handling fairy tail. The shear fridge logic brought up by this is almost inexcusable given how there no way Alvarez could be weaker in magic than Ishgar by magnitude considering Zeref is their emperor and he's the reason fairy tail got so strong in the first place. The only reason that Alvarez is trimmed so munch is giving them even the lower end of combatants would be impossible to defeat. Which would add a headscratcher of it's own: Why did mashima make alvarez rule over an entire continent if they have to be so munch weaker than by all logic should be?

[[WMG: Irene's desire to possess a new body]]
If Irene wanted a new body so badly, why didn't she take Sting or Rogue? Her unit had already defeated them and they were unconscious and ripe for the picking. They are Dragon Slayers who have stopped the seed from growing. Wouldn't that have made them ideal substitutes for her?

* Alzack, Bisca, and Mermaid Heel's Beth were from there originally, and it's unclear how long it's been since its countries were united into an empire. (the only information we have is that they were active three years ago)



* ConservationOfNinjutsu, and if their performance against Natsu was any indication, the vast majority of Alvarez's army doesn't consist of magic users. (even in Fiore, mages make up 10% of the population at best)



[[WMG: Why do the spriggans and their squads seem so clueless and lacking in knowledge about munch of the magic wielded by Fiores mages?]]
Alvarez is a single unified continent with a strong central government with all mages under it's thumb. Their emperor is [[spoiler: Zeref]] who know more about magic theory than every character in the series, combined. August is mentioned as knowing even more than him and is implied ot be long lived. So why are mooks including officers, Spriggans squad member and the spriggans themselves seemingly so unfamiliar with several magic wielded by Fiore? They have people from all over an entire continent they should be specialist or experienced enough to know just about every form of magic and combated it except lost magic, but even then.....
[[WMG: the spriggans and their squads not knowing or having lost magic and lost magic along with several specialized magic seemingly being rare in Alvarez]]
Alvarez is lead and founded by [[Zeref]] and the leader of the 12 is August who is stated as being capable of wielding every single known spell with ease. So why don't the spriggans or at least their squad have any members who can use lost magic or how lost magic can be rare enough in Alvarez to be counted as "lost" if it's lead by people who know of it and have reigned long enough for it to be preserved to serve as specialized but not unknown comparatively to Ishgar magic?
[[WMG: spriggans squad mates being weak]]
Spriggans squad members should be A: elite warriors who's power is mighty if only slightly below spriggans. B: use magic which complements enhances or covers the weaknesses of their general. or C: powerful mages who can aid armies tactically in the field. These are jus5 options that Spriggans squad members who serve under one of the 12 strongest mages in a entire continent and all spriggans who have squad should have a member for all three options at least. So why are the spriggans squad little more than elite mooks who can't do anything, except Marin, Juliet and Heine?

* Recent chapters suggest it was a SexyDiscretionShot mixed with OutWithABang. [[spoiler: At any rate, their kid is actually August, which makes sense given how long ago it would have happened.]]

* Did you read the chapter ? It's explicitly said, it's the fact the power is granted from the death that it could maybe work ( again it's only a maybe we don't know if it would have worked )

* When you look at it, Lucy's choice of weapon seems AwesomeButImpractical at best (see the pothole); there is no logical reason for the weapon besides FetishFuel (and Lucy is otherwise pretty damn far from being The {{Dominatrix}}). One could surmise it's meant for controlling her summons... except Lucy would never do something like that, and the Celestial Spirits are smart and loyal enough for it to not work that way. We know Lucy can use it very effectively, but seriously, if you're going to take the time to become proficient at a secondary weapon so as to not be entirely reliant on SummonMagic... why not a weapon that doesn't suck?

* I think her using a whip, aside from FetishFuel, is a symbolic thing that shows she's kind of a "[[TheBeastmaster beast tamer]]." Rydia from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' is a [[SummonMagic Summoner]] who uses the same weapon, but she doesn't use it to control her summons. Might even be a ShoutOut, for all we know.
