Plot Summary

Toby attacks Kurohebi only to be blasted by Kurohebi's Sand Rebellion attack. After Toby makes a bet with Kurohebi to learn his real name, Toby gets defeated quickly. Toby cries out his secret about not finding his sock. Kurohebi points to his chest which Toby finds his precious sock, and the audience is dumbfounded by Toby's sheer stupidity except Erza. Kurohebi tears Toby's sock right in front of him. As the second match begins, Chapati announces Bacchus and a member from Fairy Tail A. While Cana yells out for someone to avenge her honor at the Fairy Tail B's location, the king is excited about Arcadios arranging a match between Bacchus and Erza. It turns out that Elfman is Bacchus's opponent which shocks everyone and enrages the king. Arcadios mistakes Elfman for Erza since both of them start their name with an "E." In their match, Bacchus makes a bet with Elfman and asks him to give his sisters to him. Upon hearing this, Lisanna, Mirajane, and Evergreen are disgusted while Elfman is infuriated.

In the medic room, Natsu wakes up where he picks up a stranger's scent and finds out that Wendy is gone. He runs off to chase down the men who kidnap Wendy and the others. One of the men use their gun on Natsu, yet Natsu defeats him easily. The three other men talk about getting the other girl in the infirmary since the ones they are carrying are the wrong ones. Once Natsu catches up, he stops them. Deep in the fight, Elfman is having difficulty with Bacchus. Elfman quickly transforms into his Weretiger form, but Bacchus easily outmaneuvers Elfman. Bacchus delivers powerful palm strikes that knock Elfman to the wall. Erza notes that Bacchus's true power is unleashed when Bacchus drinks booze. With Elfman on the ground, Bacchus asks if Elfman is a man or not when he reminds him of the bet concerning his sisters' fate. Once Elfman gets up, he makes a bet if he wins, Quatro Cerberus will call themselves Quatro Puppy for the duration of the game. Then, Bacchus drinks his wine, and he attacks Elfman who transforms. After the attack, Bacchus finds his hands bruised, and the crowd sees Elfman has transform into Lizardman. Mirajane notes that this is going to be a tough fight of endurance since Bacchus can crush Lizardman's spines. Bacchus pounds his fists into Lizardman; after Bacchus stops and Elfman reverts back, Bacchus yells out Wild Four. It seems that Bacchus has won. Though, Bacchus collapses after telling Elfman is a real man. The crowd and the Fairy Tail guild cheers for Elfman.

By the outer skirts of the stands, Natsu asks the men who ordered them to kidnap Wendy. The men states Raven Tail, and Wendy recalls that the men were after a girl, Lucy. Meanwhile, a soldier reports to Arcadios that Natsu's gang thinks Raven Tail is scheming something.

  • Crunchyroll's Translation: In the last episode, the king tells Arcadios that the mage's name starts with an "L." In the Japanese language, the "L" and "E" sound similar because Erza and Elfman start with "Eru" which can be translated to Er, El, or L.
