Nichiya makes his appearance by making his stance. After the opening, Nichiya narrates and recaps how Faust will use Dragon Slayer magic to destroy Extalia. Edolas Gajeel waits for the main event. Back at the amusement park, Lucy, who thinks Byro has a lecherous stare, prepares to summon a spirit. Yet, she says "Bishi." Meanwhile, Gajeel battles Pantherlily, and Happy gets slam into the lacrima. When Happy tells Gajeel he is mean, Gajeel yells at him to be grateful since he saves Happy. Back to Lucy, she summons Taurus, and Taurus compliments Lucy for her clothes. Telling Taurus to attack, Byro tries to analyze the situation. He uses flame liquid to knock out Taurus, and then he uses storm liquid on Lucy. On the rebound, Lucy summons Virgo which Byro thinks Lucy's magic is similar to Anima. Virgo uses Spica Hole to send Byro into the hole on the ground. She asks her princess for punishment.

The earth rumbles, and Byro rises as an octopus monster. Stating that he drank the octopus liquid, Lucy and Virgo are sent flying when Byro knocks them with his tentacles. Virgo throws a spirit whip to Lucy, but she tells Lucy that it might be useless. With some encouragement, Lucy attacks Byro with the whip, yet it has no effect. Byro knocks her to the roof of a tower. When Byro talks about magic, Lucy realizes she cannot summon multiple spirits at the same time which depletes her magic. She realizes the whip will save her magical strength. Taking Virgo's words that the whip can expand and contract, Lucy uses the whip to grab Byro's tentacles. She tells Byro that allies should take care of their friends much to Coco's surprise. Finally, Lucy grabs Byro's tentacles and throws him to the building.

Once Byro's head gets hit, Natsu's flames emerges and burns Byro. Unknowingly burning Byro in the process, he punches Hughes for calling him a monster. Coco gazes on Byro and Hughes' bodies on the floor in astonishment. Lucy and Natsu asks Coco if she is okay. Coco gives the key to them because she wants everyone to live in peace rather than having infinite magic. With tears dripping on her face, Natsu's hand almost touches the key. Suddenly, Sugarboy comes out of nowhere and takes the key. Gray, who is on a motorcycle, chases Sugarboy. Lucy and Natsu also follows them, but Sugarboy, who uses the Rosa Espada to slow down Gray, makes the floor soft. In the process, Natsu and Lucy get stuck. Lucy attempts to use the whip, but the whip is stuck due to Byro's body.

In the hallway, Gray asks Sugarboy about the key which Sugarboy accidentally answers his question. Gray learns that the key uses dragon slayer magic. He uses Ice Make Floor, and Sugarboy softens the ice. This causes the floor to be slippery, and Sugarboy spins. Gray throws his motorcycle at him which Sugarboy dissolves it. Gray gets close and freezes the key. Thus, locking his hand with Sugarboy's hand. Calling Gray an ice boy, Gray refuses to let go. Sugarboy attacks the ice with his sword, and Gray proceeds to freeze the key. After exchanging magic, the key cracks. Gray proceeds to freeze the key and slams Sugarboy to the wall. Suddenly, Sugarboy states that the key is necessary to free Gray's friends. Upon recalling Gajeel's words about using dragon slayer magic to free people from lacrima, Gray explains that they have three dragon slayers. Sugarboy counters Gray's statement by informing Gray that it will take days to free everyone and that the lacrima will become magic in a few days.

Despite Sugarboy's words, Gray breaks the key. Sugarboy attacks Gray for breaking the key. Gray unleashes Ice Blade: Seven Strike Dance to defeat him. When Sugarboy states that he has no key, Gray reveals that he can create many keys out of ice.
