Voiced by: Aya Endo (Japanese), Jessica Calvello (English)
A priestess from Fire Village who holds one half of the Phoenix Stone, said to summon a phoenix that can bestow immortality onto others. She also cannot remember her past other than the fact that she hates magic and wizards.
- Canon Foreigner: She was created only for the film.
- Continuity Cameo: She and Momon appear in a panel in the fourth chapter of Fairy Tail Zero.
- Cry into Chest: After she learns of her father's death, and Lucy shares the story of how she lost her own father, Jude, without even being there, Éclair can only sob into Lucy's arms.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: Despite members like Natsu and Lucy showing their willingness to interact with and befriend her, Éclair remains in a Heroic BSoD. However, after spending time with them, as well as seeing the lengths to which they are willing to go to help her, Éclair eventually accepts their help.
- Disappears into Light: After she and Momon and say their final goodbyes to Natsu, the two form into a literal phoenix as they descend to the afterlife, leaving being a image of the Fairy Tail symbol as thanks for their efforts.
- Does Not Like Magic: It's one of the few things she remembers about her past, and this is the reason why she has trouble opening up to Lucy and the rest of Fairy Tail. It turns out the reason is because magic is what made her immortal; after all, who wants to live forever?
- Doomed Hometown: Her village was destroyed a few centuries ago.
- Face Death with Dignity: When Makarov presents the arrow that will end the phoenix and, in turn, kill Éclair. She has no objections since it will save her new friends.
- Fortune Teller: The First Morning prequel chapter shows she works as a fortune teller to give people advice by recalling her pasts. This isn't because she has magic of her own, or even any precognitive ability, but because she's immortal and can recall aspects of their pasts, despite not fully realizing it.
- Go Out with a Smile: She clearly has no regrets on spending her final moments in the arms of her new friend, Lucy, and even tries to convince the poor girl that she's ready to move onto the afterlife.
- Heroic BSoD: She fell into a major one after she became immortal thanks to her magic and watching her friends die.
- Immortality: She's kept alive by the blood of the phoenix.
- Immortality Hurts: She might have Complete Immortality, but she feels pain just as well as any other person, and is genuinely horrified when it looks like she's going to be burned at the stake.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Éclair has very few to almost no memories of her past. The only thing she knew for certain was that she was meant to deliver the Phoenix Stone.
- Miko: The movie's titular Phoenix Priestess.
- No Ontological Inertia: Her village elder gave her immortality in the hopes of locking away the phoenix and that someday someone would be strong enough to destroy should it be resurrected. When it is released, Makarov finds the means to kill it and Fairy Tail manages to do so. Éclair finally dies as a result since her lifeforce was linked to it.
- Rapunzel Hair: More noticeable when her hair comes undone as it goes down nearly to her feet.
- Really 700 Years Old: Thanks to her immortality from the phoenix's blood, she's been alive for 400 years.
- Shipper on Deck: She seems to recognize feelings between Natsu and Lucy, telling Natsu to help "mend [Lucy's] heart" after she dies together with the phoenix.
- The Stoic: Even towards children, Éclair maintains a straight face and speaks in a matter-of-fact tone when relaying information, telling things as they are and not sugarcoating the truth.
- Together in Death: She reunites with Momon, who had earlier sacrificed himself to save her, after her death.
- Who Wants to Live Forever?: Not happy at all of being an immortal as she had to see countless friends die before her eyes while she lived on, never aging. By the present day of the story, she's completely weary of her elongated existence.

Éclair's small caretaker, a stuffed bird doll who was brought to life by the magic of the Phoenix Stone.
- Canon Foreigner: Along with Éclair, he was created for Phoenix Priestess.
- Continuity Cameo: He and Éclair appear in a panel in the fourth chapter of Fairy Tail Zero.
- Declaration of Protection: Momon devoted himself to protecting Éclair, who created him.
- Determinator: Fought off an entire pack of wolves to save Éclair, and nearly got ripped apart as a result. He then brought her home and continued to stand guard over her until she woke up in the morning.
- Disappears into Light: Just like Éclair, he ascends to the afterlife with her in the shape of a phoenix.
- Flight: He is capable of this, leaving blue, glittery sparkles behind him as he does.
- Heroic Sacrifice: He burns to death to save Éclair from being sacrificed on a stake. Even though Éclair would have survived thanks to her immortality, she would have felt every ounce of pain that burning at the stake would bring without hope of relief, so he likely saw it as necessary.
- Together in Death: After sacrificing himself to save Éclair, his spirit reunites with hers.
Voiced by: Kouki Miyata (Japanese), Scott Zenreich (English)
The ruler of the Principality of Veronica, a tiny country just north of Fiore. Using the other half of the Phoenix Stone, he plots to summon a phoenix to gain immortality.
- Big Bad Wannabe: He's presented as the antagonist with The Plan, but he's also made out to be an ineffectual, small-minded villain, with the real threat being the Carbuncle guild he's hired to help him.
- Genre Blindness: Utterly fails to see Dist's betrayal coming.
- Immortality Seeker: He seeks to live forever to preserve his own youth and beauty.
- Karma Houdini Warranty: He 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.
- Non-Action Big Bad: He is the primary driving force of the villains in the movie, but lacks any fighting skill or magic of his own, relying on his soldiers and Carbuncle to do his dirty work.
- Royal Brat: He acts like a completely spoiled child when Éclair gives him a headbutt to the face, breaking his nose. For that, he slashes her shoulder with a dagger and decides to burn her as a sacrifice.
- Sissy Villain: Rather effeminate in both appearance, voice, and mannerisms, referring to Carbuncle as his "cute guard hounds".
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: They are all very conceited and brag of their abilities when facing Fairy Tail.
- Badass Crew: Their fighting skills are so advanced that they make most of the fights against Fairy Tail a Curb-Stomp Battle in their favor.
- Hyperspace Arsenal: Coordinator and Chase are weapon-based wizards, so they draw their weapons using this method.
- Only in It for the Money: Apart from Dist, the thing they look forward to the most out of capturing Éclair for the Duke is the 400 million Jewel reward.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad: Dist's underlings they serve this role for the film.
- Two Guys and a Girl: Besides Dist, they fulfill this dynamic as Dist's followers, with Cannon and Chase and the guys, and Coordinator as the girl.
Voiced by: Showtaro Morikubo (Japanese), Ryoko Shiraishi (Japanese, child), Taliesin Jaffe (English)
The leader of Carbuncle. He uses a form of telekinesis as his magic.
- All There in the Manual: Dist's entire background, or at least what little of it that's provided, can only be found in the First Morning bonus manga chapter and its animated adaptation on the film's DVD.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: The first two battles between Dist and Natsu ended with the former unscathed and the latter soundly injured.
- Dragon-in-Chief: He's technically subordinate to Duke Cream, but it's clear throughout the movie that he's the real threat the heroes have to face.
- Dragon with an Agenda: He serves under Duke Cream, but has ulterior motives to hijack Cream's Evil Plan.
- Freudian Excuse: As the prequel short story The First Morning reveals, he developed a fear of death after experiencing the death of his pet weasel as a child, and being told by Éclair that all things die eventually. This eventually turned him into an Immortality Seeker.
- Generic Doomsday Villain: He's about as flat a villain as you can get; his motivations aren't even given in the movie, and even then, we're only given very little.
- The Heavy: Duke Cream may be pulling the strings in this movie (or so he thinks), but Dist is the one who does the real heavy-lifting.
- Immortality Seeker: He wishes to use the phoenix's blood to become immortal because he's that afraid of dying.
- The Leader: Serves as this for Carbuncle.
- Mind over Matter: His magic involves telekinesis. He can use this magic to directly blast his opponent or to shoot them down with debris.
- No-Sell: Thanks to his magic, he can simply push back anything thrown at him, even Natsu's flames.
- Psychopathic Manchild: Though not as outwardly shown, he's gripped by the same fear of death he never moved on from as a little boy.
- Pyrrhic Villainy: He awakens the phoenix as planned, but doesn't get his desired immortality due to mistakenly believing it's the phoenix's blood that will grant it, when it's really its tears, a fact that Éclair never shared with anyone.
- The Starscream: Just as Cream summons the phoenix, Dist blasts the duke away in order to gain the power of immortality for himself.
- Uncertain Doom: He suffers a Disney Villain Death after Natsu knocks him off the phoenix, but the impact isn't shown.
- Villainous Breakdown: After he manages to awaken the phoenix, he tries to cut it to get at its blood as he thinks it's the key to immortality (it's the tears, actually), but can't break through its skin. This frustration is compounded when Natsu arrives to fight him once more, wondering why he won't die already after defeating him twice, and skyrockets when Natsu starts weathering his attacks before proceeding to knock Dist out.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is a very pale blue.
Voiced by: Kouji Ishii (Japanese), Kyle Hebert (English)
A burly man who, true to his name, wields an array of magic artilery.
- Abnormal Ammo: Cannon's guns fire magic bullets, which allows him to wound even Juvia's water body.
- Beard of Evil: Cannon sports a small goatee and is certainly evil.
- BFG: Cannon's giant cannons, which can blow apart the entire Fairy Tail guildhall in seconds.
- The Brute: Cannon is largest and most intimidating of the whole gang, though he uses long-ranged attacks.
- Gatling Good: Cannon's main weapon resembles one.
- Guns Akimbo: Up to Eleven, as Cannon can summon a whole battery of portable cannons around him to shoot down his enemies.
- Harmless Freezing: Gray and Juvia freeze Cannon solid with a Combination Attack, but he's shown perfectly fine during the credits.
- Lecherous Licking: His tic, which doesn't win him any favors with Juvia around Gray.
- Meaningful Name: Cannon uses magic cannons.
- Mistaken for Gay: Juvia takes Cannon's "pretty-boy" comments towards Gray to mean he's trying to steal him from her.
- Sleeves Are for Wimps: Cannon's a big, tough guy with a sleeveless shirt.
Voiced by: Hitomi Nabatame (Japanese), Shelley Calene-Black (English)
A woman who uses a form of Requip magic like Erza and can dispel others' transformations.
- Anti-Magic: Specifically, she uses her magic to counter the Strauss siblings' Takeover and Erza's armors. Erza finally manages to overcome this magic by wearing a bridal dress (which she brought earlier and is not magic powered) to take her out.
- Battle Ballgown: Most of Coordinator's armors have a rather feminine design, with large gown-like skirts.
- BFS: Coordinator's "Fire Armor" sword and the swords she summons on her "Sword Armor".
- Dark Action Girl: Coordinator matches Erza in fighting style and skill.
- The Dark Chick: Coordinator fits this role, as she stands out as the sole named female.
- Didn't See That Coming: Gives Erza a pretty tough time since she can take away all her armor (including the samuria get up since it focus all her magic power to her weapons). But didn't expect Erza to shift into a wedding dress form which wasn't magic powered, nullifying Coordinator's power and finally allowing Erza to defeat her.
- Flower in Her Hair: Coordinator wears one with her normal attire.
- Gainaxing: Seen during Coordinator's battle against Erza on the roofs. It seems that her armor doesn't include a bra.
- Large Ham: Coordinator definitely has a love for theater, hamming it up and playing along when her and Erza's battle accidentally interrupts a stage play.
- Make-Up Is Evil: Coordinator is one of the few female villains in the series to wear deep red lipstick.
- Multi-Melee Master: Like Erza, Coordinator seems to be able to use efficiently many weapons.
- Serrated Blade of Pain: Coordinator's default weapon is a retractable blade covered in barbs.
Voiced by: Koji Yusa (Japanese), Jason Liebrecht (English)
A masked ninja who can turn his body into a shadow.
- Blade Below the Shoulder: Chase draws one from his sleeve while chasing Lucy and Éclair.
- Casting a Shadow: Chase can literally turn himself into a shadow.
- Cool Mask: Chase's mask easily makes him one of the more intimidating villains in the film.
- Fragile Speedster: Chase is incredibly swift thanks to his ability to move through shadows, but a single strong hit from Gajeel is all it takes to take him out.
- In the Hood: Chase wears a hood.
- Intangible Man: Chase can merge his body with the shadows and vanish, and can even enter others' bodies to stab them with dozens from blades from the inside. He cannot use it defensively, however, as Gajeel takes him out rather easily once his real body is found.
- Knife Nut: Chase's usual manner of attack involves volleys of knives. Sometimes from the inside of the people.
- No-Nonsense Nemesis: Unlike his partners, Chase doesn't boast and is much more ruthless, as seen when he immediately attacks Lucy and Éclair when both are unprotected, and gives chase when they get away.
- The Stoic: Chase is the most serious of the group.
- Wolverine Claws: Seemingly Chase's weapon of choice, composed of three blades.
Elder of Fire Village
Voiced by: Tamio Oki (Japanese), Grant James (English)
An elder who helped Éclair survive the raid on their village at the cost of his own life.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: His back gets skewered with half a dozen spears right before he teleports away.
- No Name Given: There's not enough time to even establish one.
- Posthumous Character: We're introduced to him right around the time of his death, and learn more about him through flashbacks.
- Small Role, Big Impact: He helps Éclair escape the raid on Fire Village with half of the Phoenix Stone, and is the one who makes her immortal]].
- Teleportation: He can teleport himself and Éclair, but somehow not the spears in his back.
Voiced by: Hirohiko Kakegawa (Japanese), Randy Pearlman (English)
Éclair's father, an old wizard living in the Boundary Forest.
- Anti-Magic: He was tasked with fashioning a certain Dispel magic to nullify the power of the Phoenix Stone.
- Parental Abandonment: Though not of his own will; he was separated from his daughter when she went on to become the Fire Village's priestess while he was required to dispel the Phoenix Stone.
- Posthumous Character: He's already dead by the time Éclair finds him. Four hundred years dead, to be exact.
- So Proud of You: Before he gets to business, he starts his holographic message to tell Éclair that he's sure she has grown into a fine priestess.

- Together in Death: Lucy spots him together with the spirit of a young Éclair and her mother after Éclair's death.
Voiced by: Hidehiko Masuda (Japanese), Ian Ferguson (English)
A mayor who hires Fairy Tail to stop a gang of bandits in his city.
- Jerkass: He's such a big douche towards Fairy Tail that Natsu, Gray, Happy, and even Carla stick their tongues out at him when he's not looking.
- No Indoor Voice: He screams his butt off at Fairy Tail in his one scene with them. Understandable, as he's pissed that they failed to deliver on their job.
- Ungrateful Bastard: Even though Fairy Tail manages to round up virtually the entire Bacchus Bandit gang, he refuses to pay the reward just because they failed to catch the leader. Well, that and they trashed half his city.
Voiced by: Keisuke Okada (Japanese), David Matranga (English)
The leader of the Bacchus Bandits. He is also a wizard who can flatten his body to make quick escapes.
- Big Damn Heroes: He saves Lucy and Éclair from falling to their deaths in the middle of the phoenix's rampage through Veronica.
- Boring, but Practical: His magic allows him to flatten his entire body paper-thin. It comes in handy when escaping through an extremely narrow alley, and breaking Lucy and Éclair's fall when they nearly plummet into a crevice.
- Chekhov's Gunman: He's introduced early on so he can save Lucy later, demonstrating her ability to connect with anyone she meets, whether they're an enemy or not.
- Contrived Coincidence: He just so happened to be passing through Veronica to nab the Phoenix Stones and sell them for a nice price. He also just so happened to pass Lucy and Éclair as they fall into a crevice.
- Gag Nose: He has an orange nose.
- Karma Houdini: He manages to get away while the rest of his gang is rounded up by Fairy Tail. Which turns out to be a good thing as had Lucy succeeded in catching him, she and Éclair would've fallen to their deaths without him wandering free and saving them.
- Lovable Rogue: He leads a gang of bandits and generally causes trouble around Dasuma, but he's far from heartless and briefly halts his escape to save Lucy and Éclair's lives.
- One Degree of Separation: He named his gang after Quattro Cerberus' Bacchus.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: He comes to Veronica thinking he could find some neat treasure, but when the phoenix attacks, he decides to high-tail it out of there.
- Spell My Name with an "S": His name was misinterpreted as "Keith" in the Kodansha manga translation.
- Tattooed Crook: His name is spelled out on his back in big letters, making him easy to identify.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Dark red in his case.

The mysterious king of Stella, who masterminds the theft of the Dragon Cry for use in a mysterious ceremony to harness its magic.
- Alas, Poor Villain: Once defeated by Natsu, Animus peacefully fades away after Sonya destroys the Dragon Cry and thanks him for caring for her, even though it was all a lie. Sonya even insists to Fairy Tail that, evil or not, Animus was still the closest thing she had to a family.
- Anti-Villain: Although Animus is a dragon who hunted humans for food and amusement, his primary goal in the film is to free himself from his imprisonment within Sonya and avenge his fallen race.
- Bait the Dog: Animus continually tells Zash not to let any harm come to Sonya, and violently reprimands him when he fails, making it seem as though a part of him still cares for his friend's well-being. In reality, it's actually because he's stuck in Sonya's body and would be harmed with her; once he's free, he has no trouble batting Sonya away.
- Big Bad: He is the main antagonist of Dragon Cry.
- Childhood Friends: He has been together with Sonya for as long as she can remember, and always treated her kindly until he started becoming obsessed with the Dragon Cry. Indeed, when that happens, Sonya remains his Morality Chain as he frequently orders no harm to come to her. Ultimately subverted, however; he initially was trying to eat her until Acnologia came upon them and mortally wounded Animus. Desperate to save himself, he implanted his soul within Sonya and was biding his time until he could use the Dragon Cry to free himself.
- Death by Secret Identity: Animus figures out that Natsu is E.N.D., the "destroyer of all", after Natsu survives getting impaled and starts beating him to a pulp. Natsu, who isn't aware of his own identity yet, doesn't even let him say more than the first two letters before he lands the deciding blow.
- Evil Sounds Deep: When Animus takes over Sonya's body, her high-pitched voice becomes deep and intimidating. His true voice in his dragon form is similarly booming, as one would expect a giant dragon to sound.
- Glamour Failure: A few hints that give away that Animus is actually in Sonya's body and has no physical presence is that his shadow is shaped like hers whenever he's speaking with Zash, while he has no reflection in windows or water when he speaks to Sonya.
- Gem Tissue: Animus' Dragon form noticeably has horns and claws that look like they're made of crystal.
- Hypocrite: Animus tells Natsu that it was because of the Dragon Slayers that his race fell into near-extinction. What he apparently fails to realize is that said Dragon Slayers only came about because of dragons like him that preyed on humans in the first place.
- Light Is Not Good: He is blond in his human form and his king attire is white and gold.
- Manipulative Bastard: Because he's trapped inside Sonya, he uses her to take the Dragon Cry while masquerading as a suffering childhood friend.
- Meaningful Name: "Animus" is the Latin word for "soul", while in Jungian philosophy it refers to a woman's inner masculinity. Both allude to the fact that Animus is actually a dragon whose soul takes over Sonya's body when she is unaware.
- Oh, Crap!: Twofold. One when Zash actually manages to hit him with his brainwashing magic and take control of him, and again when Natsu recovers from his fatal blow (twice, even) and he realizes he's facing E.N.D.
- Puny Humans: He was with the faction of dragons that only saw humans as food. When he's finally released, he intends to wipe out humanity and bring the age of dragons back.
- Sealed Inside a Person-Shaped Can: He is a dragon who sealed himself within Sonya's body, much like how Igneel hid himself inside Natsu. Unlike Igneel, who could leave whenever he deemed fit because of Natsu's Dragon Slayer properties, Animus is trapped inside Sonya and requires the power of the Dragon Cry to free himself.
- Sincerity Mode: As he lays dying, he sees Sonya actually smile for the first time and mentions she looks beautiful.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Sonya says that he used to have a kind heart until he became obsessed with the Dragon Cry. Subverted when it's revealed Animus was manipulating her from the very beginning.
- Walking Spoiler: Although he is clearly billed as the Big Bad, his true identity is one of the film's major twists.
Voiced by: Aoi Yuuki (Japanese), Erica Mendez (English)
A girl who is the aide, container, and childhood friend of King Animus. She is also a wizard who can sense the life energy of other people. She believes the Dragon Cry to be vital to the survival of her kingdom.
- All-Loving Heroine: She is the single most heroic character from Stella, and expresses great sadness whenever she witnesses wanton death and violence, regardless of whether they are friend or foe.
- Anti-Villain: While she opposes Zash's brutal tactics, she still insists that Fairy Tail leave the Dragon Cry with her people.
- Continuity Cameo: She makes a cameo in the manga during the Dragon Slayers' final battle with Acnologia, shown within a flashback snippet framing Acnologia's Motive Rant.
- Heel Realization: Although she is aware of and deeply distressed by Animus and Zash's actions, she genuinely believes that using the Dragon Cry would help both Animus and her kingdom, and is at a loss for words when Natsu completely shoots her down on the basis that he understands the staff's horrible power better than she does. It isn't until she feels the staff's power for herself that she realizes Natsu was right.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: It's implied that she has no recollection of living for 400 years after Animus saved her life by inhabiting her body.
- Really 700 Years Old: According the backstory with Animus, she was living in the time when dragons were still prevalent, which was 400 years ago. The movie never explains it how she still alive in the present, but it's implied that Animus living within her expanded her lifespan and slowed her aging.
- Sensor Character: She can detect the life energy of others, which comes in handy when navigating the corridors of Stella's dungeon to avoid detection.
- Small Role, Big Impact: For a character in a Non-Serial Movie, The Stinger shows she had an influence on the main plot of Fairy Tail when Acnologia, back when he was still a human with morals, swore to avenge her and all humans who suffered under the dragon race.
- Tomato in the Mirror: When Natsu and Happy catch Sonya in a conversation with Animus, only for her to realize she's been talking to thin air, she begins to think that she is Animus, even turning to find Animus in a mirror. In reality, though, he is actually a dragon who is Sharing a Body with her.
- Unexplained Recovery: Played with. While she once suffered mortal injuries when she was a child, it is explained how she managed to survive. What isn't explained is how said method—becoming a vessel for Animus' soul—apparently helped her survive for 400 years afterward.
- Unwitting Pawn: She is led to believe that her country's primary source of income, a magic crystal called Stellanium, will become unstable and self-destruct if it absorbs too much starlight, and that the Dragon Cry is the only way of containing this magic. However, she doesn't realize that it's fabrication Animus came up with to persuade her into taking the staff until it's almost too late.
Voiced by: Jiro Saito (Japanese), Ray Chase (English)
Fiore's former Minister of State, a brutal man who was exiled for crimes against the kingdom and defected to the kingdom of Stella. He is a practitioner of black magic that allows him to control others' bodies.
- All Men Are Perverts: Lucy had Gemini copy her in her belly dancer outfit, and with a teasing wriggle of her toe, he was totally mesmerized. It's Played for Laughs until he reveals his dungeon full of young, psychologically damaged women.
- Blood Magic: His Black Magic requires a daily blood sacrifice to work. He kidnaps young women for this purpose, keeping them captive in Stella's dungeon.
- Card-Carrying Villain: He has no shame in expressing how evil he is, proudly admitting he is the most powerful wizard in Stella.
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: He once plotted against the king of Fiore after becoming their Minister of State, and now he has his sights on Animus.
- Cigar Chomper: Seen with a cigar on two different occasions throughout the movie.
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Not only does he insult a rampaging dragon right to his face, he manages to get him under mind control, too!
- Dragon with an Agenda: He is Animus's right-hand man, but has his own plans to use the Dragon Cry that don't involve the king or his people.
- Evil Chancellor: Although he is Animus's closest lieutenant, he rose to that position of power through various shady dealings, and has a fairly transparent desire to overthrow the king.
- Evil Is Not a Toy: Being a mere human, Zash is unable to handle the rage and sorrow of dragons that fuels the Dragon Cry's magic, resulting in his death.
- Freudian Excuse: He was shunned in Fiore for his Black Magic, and thus began conspiring to destroy his former homeland for casting him out.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has two raggedy scars on the right side of his face that look like a dragon clawed him.
- The Heavy: While Animus is the Big Bad, he doesn't take any direct action until the third act of the film, leaving Zash to do all the dirty work. Justified as Animus is trapped in Sonya's body and can't act as freely as he wants.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: In the end, he is killed by the very weapon he hoped to use to destroy Fiore.
- Hypnotic Eyes: His magic gives him complete control over anyone who looks directly into his eyes. Naturally, the one way to combat this is using eye protection.
- Lack of Empathy: He has no desire for friendship, and his most favorite way of using his magic is forcing close friends to fight and kill each other.
- Name of Cain: His surname is Caine, and he is one of the series' most unabashed Card-Carrying Villains.
- Nerves of Steel: The guy needs to have huge balls for being able to insult a dragon—one of the most dreaded creatures in Earth-land's history—and walk away from it scot-free.
- No Body Left Behind: He gets vaporized by the immense, raw magic power of the Dragon Cry.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Not Zash himself, but the eyes of those who fall under his control glow with a reddish tint.
- Revenge: Basically his ultimate goal: he wants revenge against Fiore for kicking him out of their kingdom, despite the fact that he gave them every reason to do so by 1.) dabbling in the dark arts, and 2.) trying to take over said kingdom in the first place.
- Right-Hand Attack Dog: He keeps a giant hound called Red Knife, which is large enough for him to ride on.
- Sadist: He delights in causing pain to others. The start of the movie establishes this when he attacks the White Tiger and forces them to kill each other for no reason other than entertainment, especially when Sonya tells him they could've just easily bypassed them without any bloodshed. Likewise, there's his whole dungeon full of female prisoners who he keeps alive for daily blood sacrifices.
- Self-Disposing Villain: He's taken out not by Fairy Tail or Animus, but his own lust for power when trying to take control of the Dragon Cry. The power ends up being more than he was expecting (being powered my the sorrow and wraith of dragons who were killed by Dragon Slayers likely contributing), and ultimately vaporizes his body into nothing.
- The Starscream: He hates having to play second-fiddle to Animus and plots to take him out once the time is right. He succeeds before Animus can fully enact his plan with the Dragon Cry, and warps his mind to keep him out of the way, but it doesn't last long before he's overpowered by the staff.
The kingdom of Stella's elite military unit, who use Stellanium-enhanced weaponry and magic items to fight.
- All There in the Script: The Three Stars' individual names are only mentioned in the film credits and other news sites.
- Glass Cannon: All three of them deliver a nasty Curb-Stomp Battle to Fairy Tail's strongest team during their first encounter, but one well-placed hit is all Fairy Tail needs to take them out the second time.
- Punch-Clock Villain: They aren't bad people while off the clock, since during the epilogue of the movie they're seen helping the citizens of Altair to rebuild the city.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad: They serve as this for Animus and Zash in Dragon Cry.
- Terrible Trio: They're called the "Three Stars" for this reason.
- Two Guys and a Girl: Swan is the sole female among the male Doll and Gapri.

A woman uses armored leg braces to enhance her kicks.
- Dance Battler: Swan moves about like a ballerina, which isn't surprising considering her combat style.
- Dark-Skinned Blond: One of many silver-haired examples in this series.
- Does Not Like Shoes: She fights barefoot to streamline her leg movements. Erza later tries to copy this with an armor that has her also barefoot.
- Kick Chick: Swan's magic focuses on her magic-enhanced legs. Even Erza knows her only as "the leg-fighter".
- Lightning Bruiser: She moves quickly, and one of her kicks is strong enough to break right through Erza's armor.
- Noblewoman's Laugh: Lets these out quite frequently.
- Playboy Bunny: Besides having rabbit-like ears, she seems to have a rabbit's tail. That alongside her outfit make her look like one.
- Unusual Ears: Has rabbit-like ears. It's not known if they are real or just a part of her hair.
- Worthy Opponent: She finds herself completely mesmerized by Erza when she manages to block her kicks with one of her own.

- The Comically Serious: He is a stony-faced muscleman who fights using dolls and only strikes poses.
- Facial Markings: There are triangular patterns on his face.
- Harmless Freezing: Like Cannon before him, Doll is beaten once Gray freezes him solid. He's later seen during the credits completely fine.
- Mighty Glacier: Doll, being as big and burly as he is, always stands in one spot and lets his Powers Do the Fighting, while he fares the best out of his teammates when it comes to taking hits from his opponent.
- Muscles Are Meaningless: Despite his unbelievably muscular build, Doll never uses his girth for combat, and it doesn't do him one lick of good against Gray's ice magic.
- Playing with Fire: Doll's dolls, Francoise and Caitlin, are able to breathe fire.
- Powers Do the Fighting: Doll's magic revolves entirely around letting his dolls fly around and burn his enemies to a crisp. Once Juvia takes them out of commission, he's left otherwise powerless.
- Real Men Wear Pink: He is one of the manliest-looking men to appear in the entire series...and his whole character shtick is playing with dolls.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has dark green hair.

A man who rides an iron ball at super-fast speeds.
- Ambiguously Brown: Has dark skin, but also has blue hair.
- Catchphrase: "You're too slow!"
- Cheshire Cat Grin: His default expression.
- Fragile Speedster: He is completely speed-oriented in his abilities. All it takes Wendy and Carla to beat him are a well-placed kick to knock him off his board, followed by an extra punch for good measure.
- Scarf Of Asskicking: He wears a red one, and literally runs (or flies) circles around Fairy Tail.
- Sky Surfing: His iron ball changes shape into a surfboard, making him even faster in the air.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has light blue hair.

The leader of White Tiger, one of Fiore's elite military units.
- Badass in Distress: She's captured by Zash at the beginning of the movie, but is released by Lucy alongside the other female prisoners later.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Zash uses his magic to make her and her soldiers kill each other. She looks heartbroken when she returns to normal.
- Break the Badass: Getting brainwashed by Zash into slaughtering her own men, and then being subjected to physical and psychological torture on a daily basis, briefly reduces her to a shell of her usually confident self. The Credits Montage suggests she managed to recover, however.
- Boyish Short Hair: Fitting for the leader of a military unit.
- Due to the Dead: She's seen visiting the tombs of her subordinates during the Credits Montage of the movie.
- Royal Rapier: She fights with one.
- Sole Survivor: She and one of her men are the only survivors in Zash's attack.
- Tears of Remorse: After being released from Zash's mind control once she and her whole unit have slaughtered each other, she silently lays on the ground with tears in her eyes.
