You pretty much listed every weird aspect of this movie. I have nothing to expect from the movie as an Escanor fan lol, I still regret not seeing 1v1 matches like King vs Dahlia, Diane vs Dabuzu, Elie vs SD (for some minutes of course) like you mentioned. But there are other things worth mentioning as well imo .''He fought 10 people'' - Yeah, because of his daddy's magical immunity lol. Without it, he's pretty weak and outclassed by almost all of the sins and any of the top tier demons/angels.
The worst thing is, the Demon King legit one-shots Zeldris and there's no reason the Supreme Deity couldn't do the same, but this is Nakaba, so consistency doesn't exist.
You're not listening. You refuse to listen because this is one of your favourite characters, so fuck all sense of logic right?
There's no fair explanation as to how Mel & Zel can handle the Supreme Deity in a 2v1 when it took all of the sins, Elizabeth/Gelda & Zeldris weakening the Demon King on the inside for an entity equal to the SD to be defeated. And 2 of the people in the fight were already individually relative to the DK. Mel lost his God powers after this fight and is much weaker, Zel is fodder, so where's the logic in Mel + Zel = SD.. ?
I don't care if Mel/Zel got ''stronger'' in these 6 months (which they shouldn't have since there's peace now) because it makes no sense either way. If it takes 6 months to reach SD/DK level then the series just breaks in on itself.
No. It should take the 6 sins, Elizabeth, Mael, Zeldris & even Arthur (maybe) to defeat the Supreme Deity. Not just Zeldris and a weaker Mel lol. He's not even using assault mode in the spoiler clips against her, just regular demon mark mode.
It's just another situation where Mel defeats the final villain while holding back, a typical cliche Nakaba loves to use to indirectly hype/praise his favourite character.
That's only one part of it. Yes, Elizabeth is getting side-lined (once again) which definitely doesn't please me, but if the movie was ACTUALLY GOOD I would be fine with it.
But the movie isn't good. It's utter shit.
Almost every single character but Meliodas & Zeldris is cast aside in favour for more oversaturated content of the demon brothers.
How is a movie dedicated to Elizabeth's mother, not involve Mael, Elizabeth, or even just the Goddesses as a race? No lore, nothing of real substance, nothing.
How is a movie involving Dahlia, not involving King? A databook lists Dahlia as someone King greatly respects, even more than Mel who basically changed his entire life around.
How is a movie involving Dabuzu & the giants, not involve Diane? She's the Giant Queen now, surely she should have some scenes with her race right? Nah.
How is the Supreme Deity getting equalled by Meliodas & Zeldris when they struggled, lost, and were sealed by Dahlia & Dabuzu, inferiors to the SD herself?
Like, this movie is just bad in every aspect. A lot of the characters are underutilised, easy moments to input actual lore and substance to the series is foregone in favour of more Mel/Zel chemistry that was oversaturated.

It's not even Elizabeth anymore.
In a movie about Dahlia, there's nothing given to King who in a datebook, listed to respect Dahlia more than anyone else, even Mel. That implies a pretty tangible relationship between them both before Dahlia left, but nothing is shown in this movie.
Diane becomes Giant Queen, yet there's no involvement between herself and Dabuzu, or with her race being manipulated.
Mael, gets something with the Goddesses, but nothing with his former master. Surely he's questioning his loyalties now, but nothing.
Of course there's Elizabeth as well, but Nakaba just simply refuses to give any depth to a character that isn't Meliodas or Zeldris. The entire Demon King arc served to fix their broken relationship, but apparently that's not good enough and now we need more? lmfao
1. I used to blame Nakaba and his extreme MC favoritism that has already laid waste to all of his stories up until now. But the most recent interview shared by Zorra changed my mind to some extent.
Man you're the most hyped one for the movie lol, I've never seen this level of enthusiasm for an movie before. Appreciate that tbh its because this movie gives basically everything i wanted out of nnt from like mel and zel standpoint. because their relationship is literally my favorite thing...
2. Dabuzu is a giant, but his involvement in creation of CoED and STs is a more prominent aspect of this character. He is a perfect opponent for whoever uses a ST or have ties to the CoED.
3. Diane? Who is she? Seriously, does Nakaba even remember there was a serpent among the seven beasts? I don't think so.
4. SD, Mael, and Elizabeth? Absolute ignorance as always. I somehow like Mael's role because it's what I expect from a kind and considerate guy like him.
5. King vs Dahila is the most obvious case of wasted potential, at least at first look. Not to mention Dahlia calls himself the nEw DeMoN KiNg!
However, if according to the spoilers, King frees giant and fairy folks from the Curse of Light, and brings them back to sanity, then his role is a satisfying one.
In fact, King interacts directly with his people and his wife's people, while he opposes and overcomes Dahlia and Dabuzu indirectly!
Not the best scenario, but Nakaba always makes sure King's plot is the least shitty one compared to the other deadly sins!
The ones I'm worried about are Ban and Gowther. The movie doesn't seem to have much room for them. They have no specific rival/archenemy/whatever in it. Ban can't inflict major damage on SD, and Gowther the mindfucker is faced with the god of brainwashing! They may completely miss this final opportunity to shine as functional members of SDSs.
At least I hope to see Pelliot one more time when the focus of movie is on Gowther. Gowther's own plot is concluded, so why not spend some time on his new journey and his new disciple? (I know I'm just dreaming tbfh!)

@OtakuFreak , my intent is not ignoring how you feel about the movie. SD was the perfect opponent for Elizabeth, and she was the perfect if not the only missing part of my beloved Escanor's plot. (Escanor couldn't fight him obviously, but he needed SD, creator of Sunshine to shed light on his/its(!) backstory!)
At least the final fight could be Mel, Zel, Eli, and Merlin against SD, but it's probably just Mel, Zel, and Merlin against her. Perhaps what's actually important about Elizabeth in this movie is the conversation between Ellie and her mother.
As for the apparent weakness of SD compared to DK, she might not have an actual body and hasn't possessed one to justify the difference.
