After the Miss Fairy Tail contest started, Evergreen, a member of Fairy Tail, turned all of the contestants into stone. Soon after, Laxus and the rest of the Thunder God Tribe arrive at Fairy Tail. Freed and Bickslow start to explain the rules, to all the Mages of Fairy Tail, of a game to see who is the strongest and the last survivor wins.
Evergreen tells everyone, that if they want the contestants to be turned back to normal they would have to defeat the Thunder God Tribe and Laxus in the battle of Fairy Tail within 3 hours or they would be turned to dust. Laxus and the rest of the Thunder God Tribe disappear from the building and the rest of the Fairy Tail Mages run out of the guild to defeat Laxus and his team and save the contestants from being turned to sand.
Numerous battles spring up at the same time throughout the town of Magnolia and the townspeople discuss the ruckus Fairy Tail is making. Suddenly, Vijeeter breaks through a wall, startling the townspeople and fights with Nab. Then, Warren and Max also begin to fight in front of the townspeople. While Warren and Max continue their battle, Macao and Wakaba begin to argue. After defeating Jet and Droy for the sake of saving Bisca, Alzack also fights some unnamed Fairy Tail Mages.
- The details of the beginning of this battle are unknown.
Through the status report, Natsu, Happy, and Makarov see the winners of the match. Makarov then says that those fools should stop it. Natsu says that he wants to join the battle but he can't because of Freed's runes. Now there are only 42 combatants remaining.
Reedus, who is on his way to Porlyusica's house by Makarov's orders, encounters Freed who says that Laxus made it quite clear that the battle ground is within Magnolia and no one can escape. Freed tells Reedus that if he is a Mage, then he should fight. However, Reedus is easily defeated by Freed.
