The battles between the S-Class and the candidates begin with Juvia and Lisanna fighting Erza on Route D while Elfman and Evergreen face Mirajane on Route A. Meanwhile, Natsu and Happy encounter Gildarts and engage him in battle.
On Route D, Lisanna and Juvia fight a difficult battle against Erza, who is utilizing the water-nullifying powers of her Sea Empress Armor. Juvia states that she will win against Erza, using Water Slicer, but the S-Class Mage dodges it. Lisanna attacks Erza with her Animal Soul: Wings but Erza, once again, dodges. Erza quickly attacks both of them, resulting in their immediate defeat.
On Route E, Natsu and Happy faces Gildarts. Natsu quickly runs into Gildarts and tries to attack him with his Fire Dragon's Iron Fist but Gildarts stops it with his bare hand. He then blocks all his punches with ease and throws Natsu, but he regains his balance quickly and uses Fire Dragon's Roar, but Gildarts disassembles the entire attack, however, his Magic accidentally hits Natsu himself, causing the Dragon Slayer to disappear. Happy cries, claiming Gildarts went too far, but Gildarts states that the Magic he used is just to disassemble, not kill.
Suddenly, numerous, tiny Natsus fall from above and Gildarts says Natsu loses but the tiny Natsus state that they haven't give up yet, making Gildarts smile.
