The film focuses on the titular guild coming across a young woman, Eclair (Creator/AyaEndo), who is amnesiac and doesn't know much about her past -- only that she's travelling with her friend, a bird named Momon (Creator/MikaKanai), that she holds half of a mysterious stone. It doesn't take long for people to come after her in the form of the Carbuncle guild, who act on behest of Duke Cream, the spoiled ruler of a small country named Veronica. It soon falls on Team Natsu to protect Eclair and at the same time prevent whatever Cream has in store for her.

* BloodierAndGorier: Unlike [[BloodlessCarnage the anime]], which airs in a morning timeslot, the movie doesn't shy away from showing blood, most notably when the elder of Eclair's village gets skewered with spears, and later when Cream slices Eclair's shoulder.

* HeroicBSOD: Éclair has been stuck in a 400-year-old one ever since she became immortal and watched her friends die over the years, thus starting her resentment towards wizards and magic. Fortunately for Éclair, Lucy helps her snap out of her funk.

* BrokenPedestal: The wizards have become this to Éclair at the beginning of the story. She also makes a valid point to Lucy and the others that magic can bring people sorrow and pain, given how she watched her friends die over the years and her immortality.

* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: Cream seems to get off very lightly for trying to awaken the world-destroying phoenix and nearly immolating Éclair purely out of spite. However, considering it's unlikely Fairy Tail wouldn't report his actions to the Magic Council, it's safe to say his kingdom will be dissolved in due time.
