* GeniusBonus: "[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Ankhseram]]" is actually a combination of two words. An [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ankh Ankh]] is an ancient Egyptian symbol that, even today, represents life, or the creation of life. 'Seram' is the [[BilingualBonus Malay/Indonesian]] word for 'horror.' [[spoiler:It's the true name of Zeref's [[WalkingWasteland Death Magic]], only it's not magic, but a Curse.]]

** How the Eclipse Gate works. Time [[NarniaTime flows differently]] in the Celestial Spirit world, sure. But why? Keep in mind, the Celestial Spirit World, as its name implies, is a dimension made up of multiple celestial bodies, and where gravity has been shown to be warped. The Eclipse Gate requires [[TheDarkArts magic developed by Zeref]] and Celestial Spirit Magic (specifically, all twelve Zodiac Keys) to function, and presumably uses the Celestial Spirit World as the means for which TimeTravel is possible. Meaning, the Eclipse Gate is less a time machine, and more like a wormhole through space. In RealLife, this concept is known as TimeDilation, and is a part of the theory of UsefulNotes/{{Relativity}}.

** In Chapter 464, Natsu being able to use [[spoiler:Igneel's]] power is explicitly stated to be something he can ''only'' do once, and he was saving it for Zeref for that reason. It served as a major plot point ever since it was revealed to be [[spoiler:a PowerTattoo under his bandages he'd been wearing since the beginning of the TimeSkip]], even being emotional, due to [[spoiler:being a one-time use of his father's full power being used against his brother]]. Cue fifteen chapters later and he uses it again against [[spoiler:Jacob Lessio]].

** August of the Spriggan Twelve has also gathered himself a sizable fanbase primarily for being portrayed as a BadassGrandpa who curb-stomps Jellal's guild all on his own. His TheReasonYouSuckSpeech that followed which [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructed]] Crime Sorcière's rigid belief that DarkIsEvil and LightIsGood with zero room for nuance definitely helped. There's also the fact that he is the only member of the Spriggan Twelve who, so far, hasn't suffered BadassDecay, making him one of the most dangerous antagonist in the series. TheReveal about his true identity in [[WhamEpisode Chapter 526]], served with an extra helping of CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming and TearJerker, only intensified this, now tying him with if not surpassing Brandish as the most popular member of the Spriggan Twelve.

** Minerva is quickly absolved of her actions once she's given the FreudianExcuse of her father's abuse. For some, this excuse came out of nowhere (Minerva had never shown any signs of submission or fear for her father in the present story), and doesn't justify all her cruelty (which wasn't really part of Jiemma's demands for her to [[SecondPlaceIsForLosers "be the strongest"]]). Others felt that this was too predictable given Jiemma's behavior and an anticlimactic end to the conflict between Minerva and Erza that had been dragged on for far too long.

** Zeref gets this as well. According to at least one circle of fans, he's [[AnythingThatMoves "done" everything.]] Some even go so far as to say he's the progenitor of all living things because of this, dubbing the phenomenon [[IncrediblyLamePun "The Big Bang Theory."]] This probably comes from the fact that he ''did'' create Kyôka amd Seilah, two demons that [[{{Stripperiffic}} wear very little clothing]], have {{Impossible Hourglass Figure}}s, and are utterly devoted to him, ''and'' has [[spoiler:at least three incredibly beautiful BodyGuardBabes in the form of [=DiMaria=], Irene, and Brandish, all of whom wear just as little clothing as the aforementioned demons]].

** Acnologia received considerable derision for this by the end. [[EvilIsCool While he was initially quite popular]] and got readers interested in learning more about him, he ends up having very little of his backstory revealed. [[spoiler:The audience only learns shortly before his defeat that he bears a grudge against Dragons for causing death and destruction, [[MoralMyopia which doesn't exactly gel with Acnologia's current OmnicidalManiac tendencies]]. How Acnologia learned Dragon Slayer Magic (he is presumably a 1st Gen Dragon Slayer, meaning he would have been taught by one of the species that he hates so much), or what exactly he was doing for the few centuries between wiping out most of the Dragons and the present story, go unexplained.]] Mashima himself laments in a post-series interview that he should’ve developed him more.

** Who's the better major villain: Zeref or Acnologia? Supporters of the latter mock Zeref for [[{{Wangst}} whining too much]] and his questionable relationship with a [[Really700YearsOld physically]] [[NoYay 13-year-old girl]] ([[spoiler:which has been outright confirmed to have been sexual in the past]]), and believe that Acnologia works just fine as an unrelenting force of destruction with no sappy sob story attached. Supporters of the former praise Zeref's detailed backstory and sympathetic motivations and condemn Acnologia for having a very shallow backstory, which was almost unanimously agreed to not only make Acnologia [[MoralMyopia a massive hypocrite]] and less interesting, but was so disjointed and illogical that it was seen as making Acnolgoia practically incoherent.
