Humiliated, Gray swears revenge against Raven Tail and Sabertooth. Afterward, Lucy is chosen to fight Raven Tail member Flare in the tournament’s first battle round.

Lucy displays tremendous skill in her battle against Flare. Out of desperation, Flare uses her magic hair to hold Alzack and Bisca’s daughter Asuka hostage, and forces Lucy not to fight back to keep her from harming Asuka. Natsu senses Flare’s foul play and grabs Flare’s hair, allowing Lucy to counter with her Urano Metria spell remembered by Gemini. Before she can land the finishing blow, however, Flare’s teammate Obra nullifies Lucy’s magic, causing her to collapse and lose the match.
160 “Bad Omen”
December 8, 2012
Blue Pegasus’ Ren defeats Mermaid Heel’s Arania during the games’ second match while Sabertooth’s Orga effortlessly defeats Quatro Cerberus’ War Cry in the third match. For the day’s fourth and final match, Jellal is pitted against Lamia Scale’s Jura, intending to avenge the humiliated Fairy Tail members. He mimics Mystogan’s magic to keep up his disguise, but he finds it ineffective to use against Jura and is forced to use his own magic instead. Before he can cast a spell that will expose his true identity, Ultear uses Meldy’s Sense-Link to force Jellal into submission. Meanwhile, the hospitalized Carla awakens after having a premonition of the future.
161 “Chario”
December 8, 2012
Fairy Tail is undaunted by their poor performance on the first day. As the guild celebrates, they are visited and taunted by Bacchus, Erza’s rival from Quatro Cerberus, who came to replace War Cry. Carla relays her premonition to Poluchka, saying that she saw Mercurius collapsing around a tearfully singing Lucy. The second day of the tournament begins with a footrace atop a train of moving chariots, causing the participants Natsu, Gajeel, and Sting to suffer from motion sickness as a side effect of their Dragon Slayer magic. As Natsu and Gajeel force themselves forward, Sting inquires about their determination to which Natsu responds that it is as a result of the strength of Fairy Tail’s bonds. Sting eventually throws the race while Natsu and Gajeel manage to finish as sixth and seventh placers, respectively.

December 22, 2012
Due to a misunderstanding, Elfman is chosen as the opponent for Quatro Cerberus’s Bacchus instead of Erza. Before the match commences, Bacchus offers to make a wager with Elfman. Should he win, he would have a right to stay with Lisanna and Mirajane, which enrages Elfman as the match starts. However, Bacchus manages to push Elfman back, with the latter being pounded by the former. Elfman eventually agrees to the wager and proposes that should he win, the name of Bacchus’ team will be changed to “Quatro Puppy” for the remainder of the Grand Magic Games. Bacchus nonchalantly accepts the bet and powers up by consuming a bottle of booze and charges at Elfman, who activates a Take Over spell, changing him into a new form: Lizardman, with high defensive power, which becomes capable of damaging Bacchus. Elfman then challenges Bacchus to a battle of stamina in terms of offense and defense. As Bacchus pounds away at Elfman, the stadium looks on in silence. Eventually, in stark contrast to everyone’s expectations, Elfman emerges victorious. Fairy Tail A receives 10 points, and Quatro Cerberus becomes “Quatro Puppy”, for the rest of the games.

“Mirajēn vs. Jenī”(ミラジェーン vs. ジェニー)
January 5, 2013
The second day of the Grand Magic Games continues, with Mirajane of Fairy Tail Team B fighting against Jenny Realight of Team Blue Pegasus. Since the two competitors are well-known for being magazine models, their battle consists almost entirely of a fashion showdown, much to the pleasure of the audience. Eventually as the showdown becomes redundant, Jenny proposes a wager: the loser must pose nude for the Sorcerer Magazine, which Mirajane accepts. Jenny then transforms into her battle armor while Mirajane shifts into a new “Satan Soul” form: the “Sitri”. Mirajane easily defeats Jenny and wins the match, tying the two Fairy Tail teams at 12 points. Arcadios, meanwhile, is confronted by Datong, the kingdom’s defense minister, about his Eclipse Plan. Back at the Domus Flau, the final match of the day is announced, with Kagura Mikazuchi of Mermaid Heel pitted against Yukino Aguria of Sabertooth. On the battlefield, Yukino proposes to Kagura that they wager their lives on their battle.

January 12, 2013
Yukino is revealed to be a Celestial Spirit wizard when she summons Libra and Pisces to attack Kagura. Using her gravity-altering magic, Kagura defeats the two spirits, thus forcing Yukino to use a Gatekey that summons Ophiuchus, which is regarded as the strongest yet the rarest among the Celestial Spirits. However, Kagura slays Ophiuchus with her sword still sheathed and easily defeats Yukino. As Kagura is declared the victor, she exits the battlefield, telling Yukino that her life now belongs to her. Later, Jellal discusses some important things with Erza, especially concerning the fact that he has not sensed the evil power similar to Zeref’s even though the second day of the Grand Magic Games has ended. Erza reunites with Milliana, who is revealed to be the hooded Team Mermaid Heel member. At the Crocus Garden, the inn where the Sabertooth members are staying, Jiemma, Sabertooth’s guild master, is dissatisfied with the guild’s performance because they have acquired no points on the second day of the competitions. Though Sting is given another chance, Jiemma humiliates Yukino for her failure.

December 8, 2012
After Yukino is expelled from Sabertooth, she offers to relinquish her two Golden Gatekeys to Lucy to complete the latter’s collection of the Zodiac Gatekeys. It is revealed that when the twelve Zodiac Gatekeys are all gathered, a gateway that changes the world will open. Lucy turns down the offer because being a Celestial Spirit Wizard is all about bonds and trust, meaning, the ownership of the spirits should not be transferred that easily. Yukino bids farewell to the group, saying that when the time is right, Lucy will have the twelve Zodiac Gatekeys. Meanwhile, Milliana reveals to Erza that Kagura’s sword, Archenemy, is intended to kill Jellal, hence, it will be unsheathed at that instance. This shocks Erza, especially when Milliana tells her that she has joined Mermaid Heel because she and Kagura share the same resentment towards Jellal. Arcadios, discovering that there are two Celestial Spirit Wizards that bear the twelve Golden Gatekeys, is confident that the Eclipse Plan will work. Natsu and Happy run after Yukino in an attempt to apologize; however, Natsu realizes that Yukino had been expelled, and infiltrates the Crocus Garden to fight Jiemma.

January 26, 2013
After Natsu punches out Dobengal, the guild member summoned to fight him, he and Jiemma engage in a duel. However, the guild master’s daughter Minerva appears, ends their duel and, taking Happy hostage, convinces Natsu to settle their dispute in the Grand Magic Games. As Natsu leaves, he states that Sabertooth will never surpass Fairy Tail because they care for their friends, words that are echoed by Rogue, while Sting is left in awe at Natsu’s strength. The following day as the Grand Magic Games continue, an event called “Pandemonium” begins. It involves the participants entering a magical citadel filled with 100 monsters of varying strengths and individually doing battle with any number of monsters they choose. Representing Fairy Tail Team A, Erza requests the 100 monsters as her opponents, thereby stunning the whole stadium.

Erza kills the 100 monsters using various types of armor to match their strength and weaknesses. As a result, the crowd praises Fairy Tail, and the guild is awarded with 10 points. Moreover, the game officials decided to determine the ranks of the remaining participants by means of a device called “Magic Power Finder” (sometimes abbreviated as MPF). Using this tool, participants must attack it with their magic power, which will, in turn, calculate and display their equivalent scores depending on the extent of power used. In the end, Cana of Fairy Tail Team B dominates the event by using the Fairy Glitter spell lent to her by Mavis, much to Makarov’s surprise. With Cana’s victory, Fairy Tail Team B receives 8 points, and the audience began to burst once more into a resounding swarm of cheers and claps due to the finish of the two Fairy Tail teams. Meanwhile, the Raven Tail team somehow managed to get an insider information regarding the battle matchups for the day, so the masked leader Alexei tells his subordinates Flare, Obra, Nalpudding, and Kurohebi that it’s about time to proceed with their true mission.

For the third match, Laxus of Fairy Tail Team B is chosen to battle against Alexei of Team Raven Tail. Since the opponent is from a suspicious guild, the Fairy Tail members take extra precautions by watching the actions of Ivan Dreyar as well as the other four Raven Tail members. However, as the match commences, the spectators are shocked to see Laxus being beaten by Alexei, although no cautious movements can be seen from the Raven Tail team. It turns out that the two dueling people are just illusions created by Alexei in order for him to have a talk with Laxus. Also, the other Raven Tail members being monitored by Fairy Tail are just life-like illusions, for in reality they are with Alexei in the battlefield. Alexei reveals himself to be Ivan Dreyar. Unable to interrogate Laxus of the Lumen Histoire’s location, Ivan and the Raven Tail members are forced to fight him. Before their battle begins, Ivan declares that Raven Tail is an anti-Fairy Tail gulid.

The game officials declare Laxus the victor, and Ivan tells him that Lumen Histoire is Fairy Tail’s ‘darkness’. Due to the infraction of the rules, the Raven Tail team is disqualified for the remainder of the Games, and its members are captured by the soldiers. Later, Wendy of Fairy Tail Team A and Cheria Blendy of Team Lamia Scale face off to compete for the final match of the day. As the two exchange attacks, gusts of wind surround the arena since Cheria is revealed to be a Sky God Slayer. Wendy employs an advanced Sky Dragon Slayer attack much to Poluchka’s astonishment, causing Cheria to fall on the ground. Wendy is about to be announced as the winner of the bout when Cheria suddenly stands up with her wounds fully healed. Meanwhile, the Crime Sorciere guild senses the nefarious aura, and Jellal proceeds to the Domus Flau audience, oblivious that he bumped into Dranbalt, who, in turn, wonders what is Mystogan doing in Earthland.

“Chiisana Kobushi”(小さな拳)
February 23, 2013
With Cheria being fully healed and Wendy being almost depleted of magic power, their battle continues, with the former casting a high-level spell towards the latter. However, it seems that Wendy enhances Cheria’s physical strength, causing the attack to gain much force and thus missing Wendy. The two competitors then engage in a hand-to-hand combat, but due to the time limit and neither side is giving up, their battle resulted in a draw, giving both teams with 5 points. Meanwhile, Jellal manages to track the sinister aura among the crowd in the form of a mysterious, hooded person. Jellal is about to confront the aura source, but he is abruptly cornered by Dranbalt, Lahar, and other Rune Knights. Dranbalt then interrogates Jellal, and as his cover was blown, the Rune Knights, as well as Kagura and Milliana glancing nearby, are startled to see the true identity of Mystogan. Yajima convinces the Rune Knights that Mystogan is Jellal’s Edolas counterpart, prompting Lahar to release the fugitive. Meanwhile, Laxus and Makarov have a small conversation regarding Lumen Histoire when Mavis appears and explains that Lumen Histoire is the ‘light’ of Fairy Tail.

After the other participants fall out of the aquatic sphere, a five-minute battle between Lucy and Minerva ensues. However, Minerva quickly attacks Lucy, and she manages to steal the keys of the Celestial Spirit mage. Regardless of this, Lucy refuses to surrender. After hearing Lucy’s intentions, Minerva stops from attacking up to the extent that the five-minute mark was reached. However, Minerva resumes attacking Lucy until the game officials decide to halt the match. The Fairy Tail members snap, and Minerva dangles Lucy out of the sphere while the others rush to her aid.

Later, Makarov announces that the two Fairy Tail teams must merge as a result of the disqualification of Raven Tail and to compensate for the odd number of teams for the battle round. He also reveals that the new team will have the former Team A’s 35 points to start with. The new Fairy Tail team, consisting of Natsu, Gray, Erza, Gajeel, and Laxus, are well-received as they enter the field. The second part of the tournament begins with a tag battle between Blue Pegasus’ Ichiya and “Rabbit” and Quatro Puppy’s Rocker and Bacchus.

After receiving heavy blows from the Sabertooth Dragon Slayers, Natsu and Gajeel manages to hold them off, thus forcing Sting and Rogue to activate “Dragon Force” on their own will, to the shock of the Fairy Tail audience. Sting decides to finish the Fairy Tail Dragon Slayers alone, for he held a promise to his Exceed friend Lector many years ago. As the three mages fight, the tide turns in favor of Sting as he unleashes a powerful attack on Natsu and Gajeel, resulting in the collapse of the arena floor, and after a hand-to-hand combat underground, Sting was seemingly the victor of the match. However, the Fairy Tail duo stands up, comments on Sting’s strength, and argues about his position while attacking, thereby causing Natsu to drag Gajeel on a mining cart and send it away. While Gajeel is left incapacitated due to motion sickness, Natsu challenges the Twin Dragons of Sabertooth alone, in retribution to what Sting did earlier on them.

Meanwhile, Gajeel, back to his senses after being dragged by Natsu into a cart earlier, stumbles upon a cave full of dragon skeletons, much to his shock.
