Natsu and his gang head out to defeat Hades while the rest defend the camp. Meanwhile, Zeref awakens after Meldy and Juvia bump into an old enemy. When things get hard for Natsu's gang, an old ally appears to their rescue.
While Lucy and Levy stare at the rain, Charle and Happy notice Pantherlily hates lightning. The guild splits into two teams. Before Natsu's team can go, Lisanna tells Lucy to watch Natsu as a trusted friend. Meanwhile, Juvia contines to chase Meldy who is carrying Zeref. Out of nowhere, Zancrow appears and knows that Ultear and Meldy are going to take Zeref away. He blasts Meldy and Juvia. When Meldy mentions that Ultear would return her town back to normal, Zeref informs her that Ultear is the one who destroyed the town. Meldy starts to cries after those shocking words while Zeref cackles a bit. Then, Zeref wakes up and mentions Acnologia. His eyes glow red, and he releases a deadly gaze. Zancrow falls down like a lifeless doll. Zeref apologizes to Zancrow as he closes the man's eyes, and he notices that Meldy and Juvia are still alive which makes him relieved. He wants Natsu to destroy him before he loses himself again. Behind the trees, Mest sweats in fear when he hears Zeref mentions Acnologia.
Elsewhere in the forests, Gray collapses, yet Erza holds him. Natsu and the gang find the two together. At the beach, Hades stands before the Fairy Tail gang, and Natsu has Happy and his Exceed allies to destroy the engine of the ship, so it will not move. Natsu and the gang charge inside the ship with Natsu landing the first attack. Immediately, Erza and Gray attack Hades; Lucy uses Taurus to attack. Proving support, Wendy uses her magic to amplify her team's magic power. Hades uses his chain to grab the others during the fight. On the rebound, Gray launches Natsu and with Wendy and Lucy's powers (Scorpio and Wind Dragon's Roar) amplify Natsu's attack.
However, their attacks did not make a scratch on Hades. He stares at the group and uses his magic to make Wendy disappear with the yell of his voice. However, Horologium saves Wendy using his ability. With Wendy returning to the gang after some comic relief scene, Hades announces that he is the 2nd master of Fairy Tail. He blasts everyone with his dark magic by making gun gestures. Back at Lahar's ship, Mest informs them about Zeref's words, and Lahar tells everyone to retreat. In Hades' ship, he talks about the Fairy's tail riddle before stepping on Natsu. Hades tell them that Makarov had exposed the guild to the light too much. He blasts Natsu repeatedly with everyone shouting helplessly. Suddenly, lightning strikes through the ship, and Laxus appears and asks Natsu if this man had hurt Makarov. Laxus gives Hades a headbutt which Hades see a resemblance to Makarov.
