Realm of the Abyss is the 119th episode of the Fairy Tail anime. It first aired on February 25, 2012.
Kawazu and Yomazu are defeated by the defense team. Meanwhile, Natsu Dragneel uses the power lent to him by Laxus Dreyar to battle Hades. However, Hades regains his stance and summons demons to defeat the team.
Lahar orders the Rune Knights on the Magic Council ship to retreat after Doranbolt reports about Zeref's last kill and the word he uttered: Acnologia. Meanwhile, Freed battles Yomazu while Bickslow squares off against Kawazu. Elfman joins forces with Bickslow and Freed, and so the three of them together manage to take down the two remaining Grimoire Heart underlings.
Natsu, in his Lightning Fire Dragon Mode, charges towards Hades in full force. He pummels him with a quick succession of attacks that Hades could barely counter. After Natsu's Lightning Fire Dragon's Roar which bursts through the ship and the island, the team thinks that the battle with Hades is over as Hades lies on the ground, seemingly unconscious. However, they are proven wrong when Hades recovers, applauds them for their performance and releases his Demon's Eye.
Hades calls Demons out of the ground using a spell called Nemesis, inducing fear in the Fairy Tail Mages confronting him. To give them strength, Natsu recalls Gildarts' teachings on fear and how fear can make one stronger. They all stand up and face the Demons head-on. With teamwork, the four all give Natsu a boost towards Hades who also sends his Demons towards him. The two forces collide and an explosion occurs.
