At the Guild's campsite, Levy McGarden and Lisanna are happy to hear Pantherlily's news about the rest of the group coming there since there are a lot of wounded people and if an enemy were to attack, they'd be defenseless. Levy is disappointed that even the master was beaten, but she says that she can't give up no matter what. As she says this, Rustyrose appears telling them that it's important to know when to give up and that now he will eat every single one of them and not leave one fairy left.
After attacking with his Jet Black Sword, Rustyrose is sent flying and Lisanna, Levy and Lily are shocked. Rustyrose falls and asks who the hell are they. Freed and Bickslow appear, Lisanna is happy to see them and Pantherlily asks them why are they here. They say that they saw the signal flare and came back with Gildarts. Rustyrose says that a couple more people added to the mix is no problem and summons his Jet Black Sword. Bickslow says that from the beginning they never intended of doing this fair and square and now they are going to take him down and Freed says that he has committed the crime of hurting his friends, the rules don't apply to him.
Bickslow attacks with Baryon Formation, but Rustyroses uses his Golden Shield after reciting it's incantation and uses it to defend himself against Bicklow's attack. Freed uses Dark Écriture: Pain, but Rusty dodges it using his Pegasus Wings. In the air, Rustyrose asks if they think they can defeat his creativity, his power is infinite, and summons The Sacred Guardian Beast, Belfast the Hurricane and commands it to tear them down. Pantherlily is shocked, but Bickslow uses Crush and destroys it.
Rustyrose is awestruck and says that it is impossible, Freed uses Dark Écriture: Absolute Shadow and attacks Rustyrose. Pantherlily and Lisanna are amazed at the power of the Thunder God Tribe, Evergreen watches from the side with a smile and Levy says that this is how they are like when they are serious. Bickslow and Freed stand above Rustyrose, Bickslow tells him to get up and Freed says that there is no path to redemption for him. Rustyrose asks himself if what he is feeling in his heart is fear.
Rustyrose gets up and thinks that this fear his he is feeling is not bad, adjusts his glasses, and says that fear just gives more inspiration for his imagination. He uses Ghosts of the Britear which wrap around Bickslow and Freed's bodies. Rustyrose attacks with Jet Black Sword and Freed an Bickslow suddenly collapse as if by exhaustion along with the Fairy Tail Mages all over the island when the Tenrou Tree at the center of the island falls by Azuma's hand. However, later, when Erza Scarlet defeats Azuma in their battle, they and the other Fairy Tail members recover their Magic and energy once more. Bickslow attacks Rustyrose with his babies and Freed slashes him with his sword.
Rustyrose calls on his Tower of Dingir, which takes a hold of them, Lisanna, Levy and Pantherlily. Everyone panics, Bickslow takes off his mask, Freed reminds him that his Figure Eyes won't work on someone wearing glasses, but Bickslow says that he wasn't targeting him, and their only hope had one eye open. Elfman gets up, Bickslow tells him that he will be taking control of him and Elfman agrees. Bickslow commands him to go and Elfman heads towards Rustyrose and kicks him the back of the neck, dispelling the Tower of Dingir. Lisanna uses Animal Soul: Wings to give Freed a launching pad, which he uses to launch himself towards Rustyrose and finishing him with Dark Écriture: Destruction.
Natsu Dragneel, Lucy Heartfilia and Wendy Marvell reach the guild's campsite, and ask what happened after seeing all the wounded people. After discussing the injuries, Pantherlily suggest splitting into two teams: a defense team and an attack team. Freed, Bickslow, Levy and Lisanna stay as the defense team and Natsu, Lucy, Wendy, Happy, Carla, and Pantherlily leave the campsite to look for Erza Scarlet and Gray Fullbuster to make the attack team. Together they go find Master Hades in his Guild's ship ready for battle.
