When Fairy Tail comes to the Phantom Lord Guild in Oak Town for payback for the damages done by Phantom Lord's Gajeel Redfox to the Fairy Tail Guild and to Shadow Gear, Makarov, Fairy Tail's Master, leaves the battle to the Mages of Fairy Tail and heads towards the top floor to find Jose Porla, Phantom Lord's Master.
When Makarov reaches Jose's room while using Giant Wrath and asks him what was the meaning of his attacks against Fairy Tail, Jose responds that they haven't seen each other since the Guild meeting six years ago. Makarov attacks Jose with his Titan Magic by extending his arm.
However, he is not hit since he appears only as a Thought Projection. Makarov asks him if he abandoned his Guild and Jose replies that a battle between two of the Ten Wizard Saints would cause a catastrophe and that he prefers a simple, sensible triumph. Makarov asks him where he is and Jose shows him that he has Lucy Heartfilia captured.
Makarov asks Jose why, but he ignores his question and grabs a knife. Aria appears behind Makarov with the palm of his hands facing Makarov. Makarov thinks to himself that he couldn't even notice his presence. Aria uses Metsu, Jose says that they wouldn't kill Lucy, at least not yet. Jose asks Makarov if he doesn't know who Lucy really is and then says that she isn't their problem anymore. Then, Makarov falls to the bottom floor.
With Makarov defeated, Erza is forced to command the Fairy Tail Guild to retreat.
