The guild members of Cait Shelter watch in horror as Nirvana prepares to fire. It then cuts to Natsu Dragneel and Zero fighting. Zero unleashes his Ultimate Attack, Genesis Zero, which calls forth shadowy beings from a pocket dimension called "Nil". These entities, referred to by Zero as "People of the Nil" engulf Natsu and trap him in the Nil Dimension from which they hail.

Meanwhile, Erza Scarlet, Gray Fullbuster, Wendy Marvell, Lucy Heartfilia and Ichiya Vandalay Kotobuki complete their final preparations and launch their respective attacks against their assigned Lacrima. Erza smashes her Lacrima after Requipping into the Black Wing Armor; Gray hits his with the spell Ice-Make: Ice Cannon; Ichiya pounds the Lacrima after bulking up with his Power Perfume; Lucy and Gemini call out Taurus who uses Rampage to destroy their Lacrima and Wendy uses her Sky Dragon's Roar to destroy her Lacrima. In the Nil Dimension, Natsu floats, unable to use his powers or move. However, a vision of Igneel appears before him, asking him if he is going to let a thing like this beat him. Natsu then has a flashback to a time when he was training with Igneel, years ago. The young Natsu whines about not being able to destroy a rock that is twice his size, but Igneel then reminds him not to let his feelings get the better of him and to remember that he is a Dragon Slayer. He then tells him to have faith in his powers and remember the pride that comes with being a Dragon Slayer.

Inspired, the present day Natsu smiles and finally unleashes the true might of the Dragon Force, literally burning away a stunned Zero's Magic. After punching Zero numerous times, Natsu then uses one of his Dragon Slayer's Secret Arts, Crimson Lotus: Phoenix Blade, and smashes Zero upwards, engulfing both of them in Flame. Both of them then crash into the First Lacrima at the same instant the others destroy their own Lacrima, thereby finally stopping Nirvana once and for all.

Nirvana destroyed

The Allied Forces destroy Nirvana

As everyone smiles and rejoices, Nirvana begins to crumble and collapse. Everyone starts running out of the Lacrima rooms which begin collapsing too. Jellal Fernandes saves Natsu from falling while the newly-awakened Jura Neekis saves Wendy and Carla. Gray jumps off Nirvana first and gets out, followed shortly by Erza and Ichiya. Lucy then shows up in Horologium. Jura appears with Wendy and Carla. Later, Hoteye tunnels out of the ground with Jellal and Natsu, relieving the group of their worries. Wendy then runs up to Natsu and hugs him, thanking him for keeping his promise and saving her guild.

Erza asks Jellal

Erza conversing with Jellal

Jura and Ichiya congratulate the group on their success. Erza explains who Jellal is, how he got there and that he is already an ally to the confused Lucy and Gray. She offers her thanks to him, but he declines. In their conversation, Erza inquires what he plans to do next, but he replies that he doesn't know and that he is afraid that his memories might return. Erza then tells him that she is with him, even if they do come to hate each other someday. She then begins to say something, but is interrupted by Ichiya, who screams about running into something when he went to respond to nature's call in the bushes.

Wendy then spots some markings on the ground, which Jura confirms are Runes. The group is then met by the Reformed Magic Council's 4th Enforcement and Detention Corps, headed by a captain named Lahar. He tells them that they have arrived to arrest Oración Seis and demands that the group hand over Hoteye. Jura begins to protest, but he is cut off by Hoteye, who tells him that his recent conversion to good doesn't undo his previous sins. He then states his wish to someday meet up with his brother, with a clean slate and be able to look him eye to eye.

Jura then tells Hoteye that he will look for his brother in his stead. An overjoyed Hoteye then tells the group his brother's name: Wally Buchanan. Lucy, Gray, Natsu, and Happy immediately recognize the name and yell "Blockhead?!" Erza then steps forward and tells him that she knows Wally, who is a friend of hers who is currently traveling the continent with some of her other friends. Happy with the news, Hoteye willingly goes with the Magic Council Corps. Lahar then states that their true objective is to capture the one who infiltrated the Magic Council, fired Etherion, causing mayhem towards those people inside and living around the Tower of Heaven, and manipulated people's lives for his own personal gain: Jellal, shocking the group. Lahar then tells them that if Jellal doesn't come peacefully, they will use lethal force.
