** Was the anime better with Satelight or Studio Bridge? The former is praised for brighter colors and more consistent art quality, while the latter is praised for more closely resembling the manga.

** Sting of Sabertooth is well-known for the amount of failure he accomplishes through the ''Grand Magic Games'' arc. From finishing last in chariot race, to losing to Natsu in a one-on-two fight where Natsu didn't even use 100% of his strength, to having his pet Exceed, Lector, taken away from him, and then, to top his losing streak off, he completely surrenders before even attempting to fight a single Fairy Tail member in the final match despite how badass he thought he became after learning the values of friendship. It's amazing the guy didn't fall apart afterwards. It only gets worse in the ''Tartarus'' arc, where he and Rogue fight [[spoiler:[[ArcVillain Marde Guille]]]], who has spent the entire fight JustToyingWithThem and mocking them as the PunyHumans hes sees them as, all while [[NoSell No Selling]] every single thing they throw at him. Sting then demanded [[spoiler:Marde]] fight them seriously. With his track record, BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor doesn't even begin to cover it.

** "But [[spoiler:Simon]] died!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Whenever someone makes a claim that "no one ever dies in ''Fairy Tail''", the first thing defenders will do is point to Erza's friend, Simon; making him a post humus legend amongst the fanbase.[[/labelnote]]

** "Yep! No one dies." [[labelnote:Explanation]]After Makarov coming back, Anna & Ichiya revealed to have survived and Zeref & Mavis reincarnating...yeah, NO ONE dies...on the good side that is. People are surprised characters like Simon and Rob haven't come back.[[/labelnote]]



** Marde Guille ran head-first into the MoralEventHorizon, and kept on cruising afterward. The very next appearance after his debut, he [[YouHaveFailedMe tortured one of his subordinates]] and then [[BadBoss callously sacrificed]] his own {{mooks}} just to make sure Fairy Tail [[spoiler:fell victim to his trap with [[EldritchLocation Alegria]].]] Even Kyouka was [[EvenEvilHasStandards horrified by this]], and to put that into perspective, she did pretty much [[KillEmAll the same thing]] to Succubus Eye!

** The series openly pushes its romantic pairings much more than many other similar shounen. Shippers appreciate Mashima's willingness to embrace pairings instead of beating around the bush. However, some feel that Mashima is instead forcing ships down the readers' throats, such as abusing AccidentalPervert moments for all they're worth. Further controversy lies in how the relationships have developed, with characters like Levy, post-TimeSkip Jellal, and especially [[StalkingIsFunnyIfItIsFemaleAfterMale Juvia]] often being criticized for having their characterization [[DemotedToSatelliteLoveInterest revolve too much]] around their pairing.

[[spoiler:The final chapter occurring only a year after the Alvarez arc, with virtually none of the ships ever becoming [[OfficialCouple official]], either fits with the friendship narrative or is just a massive disappointment.]]

However, some feel that Mashima is instead forcing ships down the readers' throats, such as abusing AccidentalPervert moments for all they're worth. Gruvia (Gray x Juvia) is particularly controversial because of [[SatelliteLoveInterest Juvia's]] [[StalkingIsFunnyIfItIsFemaleAfterMale characterization]].
** Who's the better major villain: Zeref or Acnologia? Supporters of the former praise Zeref's detailed backstory and sympathetic motivations and condemn Acnologia for having [[GenericDoomsdayVillain almost no backstory to speak of nor motivation beside destruction for destruction's sake]] for most of the series, only spitting out a [[MoralMyopia very hypocritical]] FreudianExcuse at the very end. Supporters of the latter mock Zeref for [[{{Wangst}} whining too much]] and his questionable relationship with a [[Really700YearsOld physically]] [[{{Lolicon}} 13-year-old girl]] ([[spoiler:which has been outright confirmed to have been sexual in the past]]), and enjoy Acnologia for being a GenericDoomsdayVillain.

** Raven Tail, whose team during the Grand Magic Games was allegedly meant to counter Fairy Tail, only for each member to get one-shot by Laxus after trying to gang up on him.

** Chapter 519 has [[spoiler:Erza, with all but limb broken, easily destroying the meteor dropping on her and, with her sword enchanted by Wendy, inflicting far more damage on Irene's dragon form than any of the actual Dragon Slayers ever accomplished. Then Irene, after spending several chapters displaying nothing but contempt toward her daughter Erza, suddenly commits suicide to spare her, which many saw as a copout to prevent Erza from suffering a proper loss now that she was finally running out of steam.]]
