Tartaros Arc: Soaring in Ishgar is the 263rd episode of the Fairy Tail anime, and the 88th episode of the 2014 series. It aired on December 12, 2015.

Although Natsu and Gray triumph over Mard Geer and Erza defeats Kyôka, their efforts are for naught as Face activates, erasing all the continent's and the Mages' Magic. Just as all hope seems lost, Igneel signals the arrival of the other Dragons to assist them in stopping the impending calamity.

SummaryEdit

Gray defends against Memento Mori

Gray demonizes himself

Caught up in Mard Geer's ultimate Curse, Memento Mori, Gray is forced to use Silver's power to demonize half his body in order to negate the attack and, thus, protect Natsu and himself, leaving Mard Geer stunned. However, this seems to take a huge toll on his body and, entrusting the task of defeating the Underworld King to his ally, the Mage collapses.

Meanwhile, Blue Pegasus relay Fairy Tail's call for help to destroy Face to the other Fiore guilds, while they themselves send their best Mages aboard Christina in response to the threat. As the normal citizens begin to panic, the Mage guilds immediately mobilize in order to bring down the Magic Pulse Bomb. However, their efforts prove futile as the huge pillars easily withstand their assaults.

Gray defeats Mard Geer

The Underworld King finally falls

In the remains of Cube, Gray's apparent defeat sends powerful emotions surging through the other two combatants. Enraged that a mere human managed to dissipate his masterpiece, Mard Geer assumes his Etherious Form and charges at the target with fury, only to be blown back by Natsu, whose anger at seeing his partner's fall has allowed him to enter Dragon Force. Sent flying through the ruins of his own base, the Demon can only marvel in shock at the Dragon Slayer's power, but is able to survive being hit by the latter's most powerful technique and subsequently grabs his exhausted opponent in mid-air, vowing to rip him apart. The Fairy Tail Mage commends his monstrous prowess, but states that he believes in his own comrade's strength. Mard Geer tehen immediately realizes his mistake as Gray, still capable of continuing the fight, readies himself to shoot down the Demon. Unable to evade the Devil Slayer's shot, the Definitive Demon is impaled upon a huge frozen arrow and thrashes in pain, vanquished. Simultaneously, Erza defeats Kyôka.

Igneel encourages humans

Igneel stands tall as a beacon of hope

Despite the fall of Tartaros' final members, the Dark Guild's plans seem to bear fruit as Face finally activates, the phenomenon being noticed by Gray and Natsu even as the two argue whether to destroy the Tome of E.N.D. or hand it over to Igneel. Despair descends upon the Mages as chaos erupts all over the continent due to the erasure of Magic. Pleased by the outcome, Mard Geer gloats that E.N.D.'s revival will be successful while the absence of Magic would leave the Mages incapable of opposing Zeref's most powerful creation. However, his celebration is cut short as the Dragon King crashes down near them, the Fire Dragon King holding him down with one claw and encouraging the humans not to give up hope. The ones who help humanity in this dire predicament are none other than the guardian Dragons of Wendy, Rogue, Gajeel and Sting, the powerful beasts easily demolishing the seemingly indestructible pillars by flying through them at great speeds. As the legendary creatures soar through the skies of Ishgar, annihilating Face, hope is rekindled in the hearts of the continent's inhabitants.
