Smilodon, or saber-toothed cat, lived in the Americas during the Pleistocene epoch, a period that spanned from 2.5 million to 10,000 years ago. More robustly built than any modern cat, Smilodon boasted particularly well-developed forelimbs and exceptionally long upper canine teeth. Numerous remains of Smilodon have been found at the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles. Scientists are unsure why this site attracted so many saber-toothed cats, but some suggest these cats may have been scavengers rather than hunters. Smilodon’s enormous canines, or “sabers,” protruded inches below its chin line when its jaws were closed. In order to stab its prey, the saber-toothed cat had to open its lower jaw to a 95-degree gape so as to clear the points of the sabers. The phrase “sabertoothed tiger” is a bit of a misnomer, as Smilodon is not an especially close relative of modern tigers.

Fairy Tail 545, Final Chapter Predictions

Whelp… This is the last time I’m ever going to do this, might as well make it count. So I can see this last chapter having two kinds of endings.

The first is the typical epilogue of jumping a few years into the future. So my predictions for that are:

  • If there is one couple I can be sure that is getting together it’s Gajeel and Levy. They most likely will have kids.
  • Only other ship I’m really sure that’ll be completely confirmed is Gruvia.
  • I can see that maybe Mashima will hint at a “Maybe they got together” with Jellal and Erza. As well as Natsu and Lucy.
  • Given the length of the chapter, it’s probably going to have a lot of filler. So we’ll see a bunch of minor characters
  • I think Chelia might have become a full time idol now that she doesn’t have magic
  • I’m guessing Lucy and Anna will have at least met and Anna will be with all the older members of FT like Makarov, Porylusica, Macao, and Wakaba
  • Laxus is most likely guild master
  • Elfman and Evergreen probably got together. Maybe had a kid to reference Mira’s curiosity about it in Tenrou
  • Probably going to have a joke about how grown up Wendy is hot
  • Probably going to have a scene of grown up Romeo
  • We may get a scene of Sabertooth and their just doing their typical shtick
  • Might get a scene of Gray and Lyon both at Ur’s grave
  • Then We’ll get a scene of Natsu and Lucy running off together to go on their next adventure

Now the second way I see this ending is it only is a few days after the war:

  • We’ll get a scene of several members still rebuilding the guild
  • Then we might get a scene where Makarov tells Laxus it’s his time to become guild master
  • Gray and Juvia will have like a little conversation and likely a confession
  • Erza might confront Jellal and the two might not get together but they’ll have a moment acknowledging each other’s feelings
  • Then we’ll cut to Lucy who’s getting ready for the quest to find Aquarius’s key, then Natsu will storm in
  • A good chunk of the chapter might be a montage of the two going on a quest
  • When they find the key, Lucy and Natsu might kiss.
  • We’ll probably get a moment where Wendy says she’ll find a way to bring Chelia’s magic back
  • Then we’ll most likely get a scene where Pantherlily jokes that Gajeel should get Levy and engagement ring

So that’s what I’ve thought of. Don’t know if this’ll happen, guess we’ll have to wait and see.

No person is beyond redemption is a message I took to heart and that’s the reason I like how easily some characters were forgiven in Fairy Tail. Lucy forgave Minerva and Flare, Sting and Rogue rekindled their bonds with Natsu and Gajeel and Sabertooth and Fairy Tail share a bond of friendship, Levy welcomed Gajeel to FT with open arms, the list goes on.
