Added DiffLines:

*JustHereForGodzilla: Most viewers watched this movie just for Natsu's and possibly other dragon slayers' dragon forms.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Narm}}: Fairy Tail has always had plenty of {{Fanservice}}, but its UpToEleven here. The {{Gainaxing}} is especially ridiculous when Lucy's boobs bounce when she so much as moves a muscle, and bounces in directions not anatomically possible.


* AntiClimaxBoss: Zash. After being built up as the [[TheHeavy main villain]] ([[BigBad Animus]] notwitshtanding), he's ultimate defeated by [[spoiler:a singly kick from Lucy and Capricorn]] before he [[DirtyCoward runs away]] and is eventually [[spoiler:disintegrated by the Dragon Cry]] without ever having a single fight. May be justified by his type of magic.

** [[spoiler:While Natsu's transformation into E.N.D. lasted for about as long as his dragonized form in the film, Animus's confirmation at the end that the two transformations are connected helped provide at least a little more satisfaction for those who wanted to see E.N.D. in action.]]

* OneSceneWonder: Acnologia, Zeref, Invel, and Brandish all appear for about a minute of screentime in TheStinger, yet they own every single second. Helped by the fact that it's essetially a confirmation of the final season of the anime and the coming Alvarez Arc.

* {{Woolseyism}}: While the concept of Juvia's "Gray Sensor" is funny enough, the English dub's decision to call it the "Gray-dar" just brings it to a whole new level.

** [[spoiler:Hiro regretted not being able to show anything more than a short speech detailing Acnologia's past in the manga, so he used his original plans in TheStinger, painting Acnologia in more of a human light to keep him from being the GenericDoomsdayVillain he ultimately came across as in the manga.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeBrilliance: [[spoiler:Natsu surviving getting impaled through the chest might seem like a huge AssPull, but it actually seems to hold more water when Animus realizes he is E.N.D., since the Etherious tend to be quite tricky to kill. It also helps that Natsu has blatantly survived other fatal situations that have puzzled his friends and enemies, which include getting shot in the mouth in the Tower of Heaven arc.]]

* JerkassWoobie: Animus. Sure, he [[spoiler:didn't mind wiping out humanity and joined with Zirconis and other dragons to kill little girls like Sonia, but he genuinely seemed sad to part from her at the end, and like he really wanted to make a go at peace with humans before losing himself to hatred.]]

* CompleteMonster: [[DragonWithAnAgenda Zash Caine]] was once a wizard of Fiore who fled to Stella after a failed coup. He [[EvilChancellor went into the service]] of [[BigBad King Animus]] and then proceeded to kill his own allies to prove himself. In the present day, Zash uses mind control to force the White Tiger squadron to kill each other in order to steal the Dragon Cry. Zash shows no hesitation in trying to kill the Fairy Tail wizards, and is even willing to mind control others to do so. It is revealed that Zash keeps female prisoners to [[HumanResources draw blood from]] to power his own magic, and takes Lucy captive in an attempt to draw blood from her. Towards the end, [[spoiler:Zash betrays Animus and takes the Dragon Cry for himself. He proceeds to force Animus to go on a rampage and unseals the Quartum Army to eliminate the Fairy Tail wizards. He then activates the Dragon Cry in an attempt to destroy all of Fiore out of revenge for his exile, only failing when the power proves too much and incinerates him.]]
