And Fairy Tail makes a come back, surprise, surprise! I feel like I’m mentioning Fairy Tail a little too much– I think that it’s taken over half of my posts– but that’s okay!
After all, the characters are some of my favourites and I can’t really think of any other badass scene. I haven’t watch many fighting/combat and all that stuff in anime very much. And the ones that I have scene don’t really pop up to me. But this scene that I’m about to mention is really something else and it really shows the essence of Fairy Tail.
This scene happens during the Grand Magic Games arc, and I’m actually rewatching the arc currently, which is probably why this scene was the first one to pop up in my head. Contrary to all the gifs and pictures, this focuses more on Erza and less on Natsu, not that Natsu isn’t amazing, but this Erza moment was something else. So…
My Most Badass Scene is…
Erza when she faced off the 100 monsters in the Pandemonium Challenge!
This scene was pretty memorable to me and to the other Fairy Tail members. In order to understand, I’ll have to dive into some history. So before this arc, Erza with some other main Fairy Tail members went to an island called Tenrou Island for a trial where mages can become S-class, which is a special rank for powerful mages. However, during that trial, they had been attacked by a dark wizard guild in search for an evil wizard named Zeref. They were caught up into all of this and eventually, it ended up with Zeref summoning a dragon called Acnologia, which ended up wiping out the whole island.
However, due to their bonds, they managed to survive the attack, but fell into a sleeping spell that lasted for 7 years until they were able to wake up again. In those 7 years, the Fairy Tail guild was disgraced, stepped upon, and looked down upon due to their weakness, resulting in Fairy Tail being the weakest guild in the country.
So, in order to become number 1 again, they decided to enter the Grand Magic Games, which is a competition to see who the best guild in the country is. In one of the events, Erza chose to participate in an event called the Pandemonium. The Pandemonium is a house of 100 monsters and with the 8 participants that were chosen, they were supposed to take turns in order to defeat these monsters. However, Erza being Erza decided to challenge all 100 of them by herself.
And, of course, she did it. During this time, Fairy Tail was also starting a conflict with another guild named Sabertooth, so this event really showed them up! This was also really significant because it was the first time that they were able to show that Fairy Tail wasn’t all talk, but they were powerful. Erza showed that Fairy Tail wasn’t done yet, but they were just beginning.
This scene was awesome to watch and I loved how the producers animated the whole fight, even though there wasn’t one in the manga.
Erza will always be Erza, the most powerful female in Fairy Tail and the most frightening!
