Natsu fights Jellal. Natsu is hardly able to scratch Jellal, having regained his true magical powers. So, deciding to just try and destroy the tower itself, he angers Jellal. Thus he launches the ultimate Heavenly Body Magic, Altairis, deciding to destroy Erza and Natsu together, not minding anymore about the destruction of the Tower. As the attack launched, Simon defended the two and died. Natsu decides to eat some of the lacrima, thinking to absorb the power of Etherion. He unleashes his true Dragon Slayer powers and continues to fight Jellal, but the Etherion, containing elements other than fire, backfired on him. But Natsu managed, and defeated Jellal. As Natsu faints, the unstable power of Etherion started to leak out of the lacrima and it will cause a huge explosion. Erza decides to fuse with the liquified lacrima to save her friends. The Etherion shot out to the sky.
