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 Erza with difficulty because of her Sea Empress Armor which nullifies Juvia's water attacks. Juvia states that she will win against Erza then uses Water Slicer against her but Erza dodges it. Lisanna attacks Erza with her Animal Soul: Wings but Erza dodges it again. Erza quickly attacks both of them making them fall into the ground.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. Fire Dragon's Roar. He then blocks all his punches with ease and throws Natsu, but he regains his balance quickly and uses Gildarts disassembles the entire attack, but accidentally uses his magic against Natsu making him 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.
