Pandemonium is the 166th episode of the Fairy Tail anime. It aired on January 26, 2013.

Confronted by the Sabertooth Guild Master himself, Jiemma, Natsu decides to fight him all-out in their lodgings. Despite his attacks, he is unable to deal even a scratch on him. Eventually, their "fight" is interrupted with the arrival of Minerva and her hostage, Happy, forcing Natsu to leave reluctantly. The following day, the Grand Magic Games resume with a new event: Pandemonium. However, the beasts within the domain of this event appear to be quite challenging for the participants.

SummaryEdit

Natsu Dragneel vs. Sabertooth

Jiemma confronts Natsu

An enraged Natsu finally meets the Sabertooth Guild Master face-to-face. The other Sabertooth Mages look on in astonishment at the situation, with Orga even asking whether he really intends to fight Jiemma alone. When Jiemma speaks up, Natsu tells him that those who don't respect their comrades are on his hit list; Rogue and Sting quickly realize that he must be talking about Yukino's excommunication from earlier that night. Jiemma does not, however, and he has Dobengal fight Natsu. Dobengal submits and faces Natsu, explaining that while he is not a participant in the Grand Magic Games, he is just as strong. However, after a few cheap attacks from Dobengal, Natsu swiftly takes him out in a single hit.

The other Mages are shocked that one of their comrades has been defeated instantaneously. Sting goes up to his Guildmaster and offers to fight Natsu himself. Jiemma goes up instead and endures several blunt attacks from Natsu, which practically do not even leave a scratch on him. Following Natsu's Lightning Fire Dragon's Firing Hammer, which ends up destroying a section of Sabertooth's lodgings, Natsu and Jiemma are forced to end their "fight" upon the arrival of Minerva. Minerva tells her father, Jiemma, that it would not be a good thing if they kill other participants. She then faces Natsu and unexpectedly reveals a tied-up Happy in her hands. Natsu is forced to surrender and return to his Guild with Happy. Before he leaves, he tells Sabertooth to take care of their comrades.

Natsu returns to the Honeybone lodgings and explains what happened between him and Sabertooth earlier. His teammates scold him for his reckless behavior and worry about the consequences, believing that now Sabertooth will put up a tougher front against them. Erza does not join in her teammates' discussion and instead walks outside. She considers how all the other Guilds' participants have their own feelings and recollects on what Millianna told her earlier.

The next day, Yukino walks around Crocus and learns from passing individuals about the incident with Sabertooth. She wonders whether Natsu is responsible and looks up at the Domus Flau, smiling.

Doranbolt At GMG

Meanwhile, the third day of the Grand Magic Games commences, with Lahar being the new guest judge for the occasions. Doranbolt, who has been pressured to attend as well by Lahar, bemoans about his situation while walking to the stands. He unknowingly passes by Wendy, Romeo, Happy and Carla who are all worried about possibly being late for the introduction ceremonies of the Games. At some point, Wendy leaves that group to join her teammates.

Pandemonium monsters

The day's event is then selected: Pandemonium. Each Guild selects a participant for their team. The members chosen are Erza Scarlet, Cana Alberona (who joined the Fairy Tail B Team), Jura Neekis, Orga Nanagear, Millianna, Hibiki Lates, Nobarly, and Obra. They all head to the center of the arena towards Mato who immediately sets up the event. A massive, purple, demon-like castle is summoned to the area to act as the event's main setting place. Mato explains the rules of the events, giving detail on the different classes of beasts that they will be fighting, before he even displays a live recording of one of the lower-class beasts, which appears to be very fearsome already. He then gives each participant a slot to choose, which will determine the order of their entrance inside the arena. After considering everything, Erza, who is first, declares that all 100 beasts in Pandemonium will be her opponents, and she steps up to head inside, much to everyone's shock.
