From Pegasus to Fairies is the 65th episode of the Fairy Tail anime. It first aired on February 7, 2011.
The method to destroying Nirvana is revealed and the formerly fallen Fairy Tail Mages are inspired by their comrades to stand up again. However, Zero continues to stand in the way of their victory. It is Natsu Dragneel who decides to settle things with Zero and their battle begins.
Wendy Marvell finally finds Jellal Fernandes and Erza Scarlet, who have just emerged victorious from their battle against Midnight, the final Oración Seis General. Wendy runs up to Jellal, only to find that he doesn't remember who she is. Initially saddened, she later cheers up after Erza explains to her that Jellal's memories are still jumbled and that he can't remember anyone. Wendy then asks Jellal if he knows how to stop Nirvana, but Jellal tells her that a Square of Self-Destruction will no longer work, and that he doesn't know of any other method to stop it.
Just then, Nirvana, which has arrived in front of Cait Shelter, begins charging up to fire at Wendy's Guild. However, just as Cait Shelter and its inhabitants are about to be obliterated, a blast of Magic hits one of Nirvana's legs, throwing it off balance and causing it to miss the Guild.
The blast is revealed to have been from the Blue Pegasus Magic Bomber: Christina, which was formerly shot down by the Oración Seis. Aboard is Lyon Vastia, Ren Akatsuki, Eve Tearm, Sherry Blendy and Hibiki Lates. Hibiki then uses his Telepathy to tell Erza and co. that Christina is up and running thanks to a combined effort of all on board. Hibiki goes on to explain that after searching through Archive, he has finally managed to figure out how to stop Nirvana: The group must simultaneously destroy six Lacrimas located at the base of Nirvana's main body, which channel the Magic Power that its six legs absorb from the Earth and convert into energy. He also cautions that unless all six Lacrima are destroyed simultaneously, the other Lacrima will regenerate any one that is destroyed.
Zero then uses his Magic to jack Hibiki's telepathy, initially complementing the Allied Forces on coming so far and then taunting them saying that he (Zero) is in front of one of the six lacrimas, therefore making simultaneously destroying them impossible as he insinuates that none of the Allied Forces can defeat him. He then brags that he has already taken down 4 of their comrades, Natsu Dragneel, Gray Fullbuster, Lucy Heartfilia and Happy. Soon after, Zero terminates his connection.
Hibiki then downloads an application to coordinate their timings in destroying the Lacrima. Erza and co. are shocked to learn that they only have 20 minutes to do so before Nirvana fires again. Soon after that, Lyon, Ren and Sherry run out of Magic Power and Christina begins losing altitude. Using the last of Hibiki's Telepathy, Lyon, Sherry, Erza, Carla and Wendy plead with and inspire Natsu, Gray, Lucy and Happy to get up. Natsu, Gray, Lucy and Happy slowly begin to rise despite their injuries.
Erza and Hibiki then bring them up to speed quickly. The remaining fight-capable members of the Allied Forces onboard Nirvana (Natsu, Gray, Happy, Lucy, Ichiya and now Jellal) take Lacrimas to destroy. Natsu chooses the first, Gray the second, Lucy the third, Ichiya fourth, Erza the fifth. Jellal is about to say that he will be heading to the sixth Lacrima, but Erza cuts him short, stating that he shouldn't speak because Natsu still considers him as an enemy because he does not knows about his circumstances yet. Hibiki's power finally runs out and the Telepathy cuts off. Christina then crashes as Sherry and Ren's powers completely give out as well. Each member of the team begins making their way towards their chosen Lacrima Before leaving, Erza tells Jellal and Wendy that Zero is most likely at Lacrima One (Natsu's), as Natsu has a very good sense of smell and probably chose that number for that very reason. Wendy wants to go back Natsu up in his fight, but Erza tells her that Natsu will be able to handle Zero by himself. Upon hearing the name "Natsu" uttered by Erza, Jellal's memories begin to return.
Sure enough, Natsu is greeted by Zero as he approaches the first Lacrima. Natsu and Zero engage each other in battle, with Natsu barely managing hold his own, even in his weakened state. He even manages to use Fire Dragon's Iron Fist to counter Zero's penetrating Magic — Dark Capriccio. Suddenly, a maliciously smiling Jellal appears and blasts Natsu with Fire Magic, prompting Zero to ask him if his memories have finally returned.
