Galuna Island: The Final Battle is the 40th chapter of Hiro Mashima's Fairy Tail.

Natsu chases Zalty in an attempt to find out what Magic he uses, but Zalty manages to disappear from Natsu's sight. Meanwhile, Gray holds out against Lyon. Lyon states that he knows his subordinates will finish the ritual, but Gray tells Lyon not to underestimate Natsu. Natsu finds Zalty at Deliora's location while Toby starts the moon drip ritual above them. Natsu tries to stop Toby, but Zalty prevents him from doing so.


Lyon stabs Gray. Lyon explains that he already knew the truth about Ur and asks Gray if he actually believes that Ur is still alive.

Meanwhile, Natsu is chasing Zalty. Zalty then demonstrates his Magic for him, which was how he untilted the ruins. Natsu asks for an explanation, which Zalty gives. He explains that he uses Arc of Time, a Lost Magic so old and powerful that it was left out of history. Salty also says that another kind of this Magic is Dragon Slayer Magic, the very one Natsu uses. After saying that, he vanishes. Gray and Lyon continue fighting, although Lyon is astonished that Gray can still move despite his injury. Gray attacks with Ice Bow and Arrows and even manages to kick and punch Lyon. Lyon, humiliated, uses his Magic to summon a Snow Dragon, saying that he would finish Gray fast since, thanks to Zalty, Deliora would soon be revived. Gray, however, states to Lyon not to underestimate Natsu.

Natsu finally finds Zalty. He does this by tracking him with his nose, which Zalty compliments, though Natsu notes that Zalty smells somewhat like a female. While Toby is initiating the ritual, Natsu runs to stop him, but in turn Zalty stops Natsu.
