After the Miss Fairy Tail contest started, Evergreen, a member of Fairy Tail, turned all of the contestants into stone. Soon after, Laxus Dreyar and the rest of the Thunder God Tribe arrive at Fairy Tail. Freed Justine and Bickslow start to explain the rules, to all the Mages of Fairy Tail, of a game to see who is the strongest and the last survivor wins.
Evergreen tells everyone, that if they want the contestants to be turned back to normal they would have to defeat the Thunder God Tribe and Laxus in the battle of Fairy Tail within 3 hours or they would be turned to sand. Laxus and the rest of the Thunder God Tribe disappear from the building and the rest of the Fairy Tail Mages run out of the guild to defeat Laxus and his team and save the contestants from being turned to sand.
Back at the Guild, Makarov Dreyar, after Laxus disappears from the building, begins to say that he does not mind giving up his position as the master of Fairy Tail., but he cannot place Fairy Tail in the hands of Laxus. Makarov, frustrated, screams out if there is anybody who could beat Laxus. Happy, Makarov, and Natsu Dragneel hear something falling on the floor and turn around to see Gajeel Redfox coming out from behind a table. Makarov asks Gajeel if he would be willing to fight Laxus for them to which he agrees. As Gajeel is about to leave the building, he is stopped by Freed's runes. Happy, confused, asks himself why couldn't Natsu and Gajeel go through the runes if the rules shouldn't apply to them. Around Magnolia, Evergreen and Bickslow, two Thunder God Tribe members, finish off some remaining Fairy Tail Mages while Alzack Connell, a Fairy Tail Mage, using the wall next to him to support himself, confronts Freed Justine.
Alzack, standing next to a wall badly wounded, tells Freed that because of his runes he has been forced to hurt his friends. He also mention that since the beginning, he has been telling himself that he had been doing this to turn Bisca Mulan back to normal. Alzack attacks Freed with his Guns Magic, but Freed cuts his attack in half easily with his sword. Alzack, astonished, remarks that his Tornado Shot was sliced apart and suddenly falls to the ground running out of oxygen. He questions Freed whether he has some other type of Magic besides his runes and then falls to the ground. Freed begins to walk away, saying that he only used his runes to their greatest effect and that once his rules are in effect, no one can defeat the creator.
Through Freed Justine's status report, Makarov Dreyar reads that now only two are left in the Battle of Fairy Tail, Natsu Dragneel and Gajeel Redfox begin to argue of why neither of them can pass through Freed's runes. Makarov looks at Natsu and Gajeel and notice that the only two left are them. Natsu says that there is nothing else to do but revive Erza Scarlet. Natsu, next to Erza, begins to rub her with fire and Erza's forehead cracks, Natsu, scared, asks Happy for glue. But Gajeel says that that won't hold her together and tells Natsu that they have to use his iron and Natsu's flame to weld her shut. Natsu begins to ask for Erza's forgiveness as her entire face begins to crack, Erza restores from Evergreen's Stone Eyes and says that she feels hot and asks Natsu if it was him and punches Natsu and Gajeel asking them what were they thinking. Makarov asks Erza how did the Stone Eyes effect wear off, Erza says it was probably because of her artificial right eye.
On Freed's status report, the number of Fairy Tail Mages went from three to four, Erza, Natsu, Gajeel, Happy, and Makarov begin to wonder why. Erza reminds them that there is one more person outside of Magnolia Town who can join the game, Mystogan.
