There are more one-on-one battles on the first day of the Grand Magic Games, culminating with the mysterious "Mystogan" versus Jura! Will a Fairy Tail team finally get points?! Or will Mystogan's real identity be revealed, blowing his secret mission?!
Sherry: Yay Ren!
Natsu informs Erza that Lucy is okay and taking a bath right now, and when Natsu asks if Erza wants him to check, Elfman mumbles that Natsu cannot. Then, Natsu tries to go check on Lucy, but Erza restrains Natsu who has gone crazy. Then, the second match starts with Arania Web and Ren facing each other. Arania asks Ren if a Blue Pegasus member can hit a lady. Over at the commentators' stand, Jenny cheers on Ren and yells out that Sherry is cheering for Ren. When Ren looks away, Arania attacks Ren. Worried about Ren, Sherry yells out to Ren, and Oba baba asks her to stop cheering for the enemy. A mage tells Oba that Ren and Sherry are engaged. Ren states that he is not engaged while he dodges Arania's web shots. Ren does his usual tsundere thing with Sherry, and the two of them blush. Lamia's scale members, Chelia, Toby, and Yuka, make some comments on Ren and Sherry's love for each other. Ren uses Aerial Phose against Arania who gets blasted. Ren wins the match, and Sherry is happy with her Ren. Chapati announces that Blue Pegasus has 14 points total while Mermaid Heel has 3 points. In the stands, Erza comments that Ren has got stronger, and Natsu asks if Ichiya has got stronger as well. Natsu is revved up about fighting Ichiya, and both Erza and Elfman are curious about the man in the blue bunny suit.
Sabertooth is number one!
As the third match begins, War Cry and Orga meet on the battlefield. The crowd cheers for Orga while War Cry's guild do the same for their guild member. Sting looks forward to the match while Rufus finds it interesting, yet Rogue heads inside, uninterested by the match. In the hallways, Rogue thinks about Gajeel. Meanwhile, Happy and Pantherlily comment on the match; at the same time, Lector mocks Frosch who asks who is stronger. Lector states that Orga is strong, but Sting is number one in their guild. Then, the match starts with War Cry using his Tear Magic by crying massive tears from his eyes. Everyone is surprised at War Cry's magic, but everyone else is even more surprised at Orga's quick and destructive black lightning magic. Orga easily and quickly wins the match. Sting tells Orga to make the match more fun, and Orga decides to sing a song. He takes a mic from the Pumpkin head Announcer and sings how Sabertooth is the number one guild. The audience laugh, smile, or cringe with Orga's act.
Jura bounces attack right at Jellal
As the final match approaches, Jenny and the commentators make their statements about Lamia Scale and Fairy Tail who are about equal in strength. The combatants are Mystogan (Jellal) and Jura. After Levy's group and Yuka's group make their comments, Laxus and his group chat about the match up and Jura. As Jellal walks on forward for Fairy Tail, a montage of Wendy and rest of the defeated members are seen. Jura tells Jellal that he is not holding back even though he respects Fairy Tail. Jellal prepares to fight all of his might for the sake of Fairy Tail. In the stands, Makarov talks to Mavis who tells everyone that she has to use the restroom which shocks her whole guild. Outside of the games, Ultear and Meldy are watching the match, and Ultear hopes Jellal will not blow his cover and that he doesn't do it to impress Erza. The match begins, and Jellal rushes towards Jura who uses his earth magic. Jellal hops on the moving pillars that bend and grow. He uses one of Mystogan's attacks once the staves surround Jura. Though, Jura remains unscathed and launches an earth fist at Jellal. Countering Jura's attack, Jellal uses Three Layered Magic Circle Mirror Water to reflect the attack. Jura quickly takes control of the attack and sends it at Jellal. Oba yells to Jura to keep spinning Jellal.
Ultear forces Meldy to eat pepper
Then, Jellal starts to his own magic, starting it with Meteor. Jura uses Iron Rock Wall to protect himself, but Jellal flies around it. He heads inside the sky, and Jura hits Jellal with some stones. Jellal manages to create his spell circles and used Grand Chariot to rain upon Jura who uses Rock Mountain to protect himself. Jura realizes Jellal's identity and recalls back to Makarov who withheld some information. Jellal starts to summon his strongest magic, Cerma, which darkens the sky. Ultear and Meldy are angry at Jellal who is blowing his cover, and when Meldy asks Ultear what to do, Ultear looks at her with a wicked glint in her eyes. Jellal stops as his mouth tastes something spicy. Ultear continues to shove peppers in Meldy's mouth, and she tickles poor Meldy. On all fours, Ultear proceeds to violate Meldy, and Jellal feels the same effects. Jellal gets knock out, and everyone's jaws just drop. Jura is stunned at his victory and wonders if this is okay. Levy and her group stare at the abysmal scores for their guild. Mavis stares at Makarov who is shocked. Erza explains to Natsu and Elfman about Meldy's doing. Laxus's group demands Jellal to explain himself, but Jellal could not find the words.
Levy narrates about upcoming disaster for Lucy and everyone days after the Grand Magic Games, and Carla has a scary premonition. Lucy pats Lucy and reassures her that they will turn the tide.
