|Grand Magic Games|
Dai Matō Enbu
To determine the strongest guild in Fiore
- Only five members of each Guild can compete in the games.
- Guild Masters cannot participate.
- Anyone without the Guild's insignia cannot participate.
- Each event will remain a secret up until right before they begin, at which point the rules will be explained.
- All participants must return to the lodgings by 12:00 midnight.
- Victory is based on who can dominate across several different kinds of competition.
The competition is held in a large arena called the Domus Flau, which is located on the west mountains in the capital of Fiore, Crocus. It has chains from four different corners that attach it to the ground. Above each chain, there is a statue of a person with a staff that extends inside the arena.
In the Grand Magic Games tournament of the year X791, 113 teams participated. Of these, 105 teams were knocked out in a preliminary round, leaving eight teams to compete in the main events. The winner was Fairy Tail.
In the Grand Magic Games tournament of the year X792, while the amount of participating guilds is unknown, it is known that previous favorites such as Sabertooth, Lamia Scale, Mermaid Heel, Blue Pegasus, Quatro Cerberus, and Fairy Tail did not participate, the latter due to the guild being disbanded. The winner was Scarmiglione.

- In the first round of the tournament of X791, the original plan involved a battle between Jura Neekis and Laxus Dreyar, and the two combatants were supposed to have tied.
