*Potential Spoilers* Fairy Tail: Daimatou Enbu Final Match-Ups
FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT READ THE MANGA, THE FOLLOWING THREAD INCLUDES SPOILERS.
With the final match ups in the Daimatou Enbu finally underway, I figured I would make a thread seeing what everyone's expectations are, and see how they compare to my own.
First off, let's look at the next chapter's title. Chapter 319 is entitled, "The White Knight". This title can refer to either Acadios, Sting, or perhaps both of them.
1. Arcadios has been mentioned as the White Knight several times. I'm guessing we will see where he ran off to next chapter.
2. Sting is the White Dragon Slayer so I'm betting he will finally get into the final matches in this next chapter.
With the thought of Sting joining the fray, let's look at the matches.
1. Gajeel vs Rogue
As we saw from the latest chapter, Gajeel is now in Iron Shadow Dragon mode to face off against Shadow (the possessed Rogue), and it looks like Gajeel has turned the tables. However, based on the title, this may mean that Sting will join in this fight. Based on Sting's actions this fight will happen in one of two ways.
Sting Appears in Gajeel vs Rogue
If Sting appears in this fight...Rogue and Sting will both be fine, and Gajeel will be defeated. I'm guessing Rogue is on his knees and Gajeel takes a hit from behind....then Rogue and Sting use a Unison Raid and take him down.
Sting Does Not Appear in Gajeel vs Rogue
If Sting does not show up, I have a feeling Gajeel is about to put a beat down on Rogue in order to knock out Shadow.
2. Gray and Juvia vs Lyon and Chelia
From what we saw everyone is pretty much at an equal status in terms of strength as well as current condition.This fight is also the only other fight I see Sting entering in this next chapter.
Sting Appears in Gray and Juvia vs Lyon and Chelia
Obviously if Sting appears he will defeat all four of them (Gray, Juvia, Lyon, and Chelia). Probably all at one time to hype him up. Also, if this is the fight he jumps into, it will probably be shown as a big explosion, and Sting standing amongst the four of them knocked down.
Sting Does Not Appear in Gray and Juvia vs Lyon and Chelia
Gray and Juvia will win. It is possible Gray may be taken down protecting Juvia who will go rage mode and win (though Gray being taken down is unlikely).
Now moving on to the final two fights. These two have extremely low odds of having Sting join.
3. Laxus vs Orga vs Jura
At the moment this is probably the most exciting match at hand. I'm hoping and guessing that Orga will be taken out in the early stages of the fight...possibly from Laxus and Jura teaming up. Since Jura always looks up to Makarov he may want to fight Laxus one on one!
After Orga goes down, I'm guessing Laxus will defeat Jura.
4. Erza vs Minerva
Despite Erza being my favorit character, there is no way she should win this fight. Her leg is absolutely wrecked. If she pulls out a random win...while it would be epic, and I can't really complain...I know many people will be upset.
Erza won't lose to Minerva because it brings Fairy Tail closer to losing as well as she would lose to the person who just brutally took down Milliana and Kagura. The problem is, she obviously is unable to effectively move. So Erza will stick to the one quality that she seems to be the best at: Endurance!
I believe this fight is going to come down to Erza just sitting there taking a beating from Minerva until one of the other teams can help her...whether it is Laxus, Gajeel, or Gray & Juvia.
I think Minerva's sadistic personality will lead to her downfall. She will be too distracted torturing Erza to notice others who will then take her out while she isn't looking (only option I can see for Juvia and Gray), or she will simply be defeated (by Laxus, or maybee Gajeel).
Only after Minerva is knocked out will Erza pass out.
That is how I see the present fights being resolved ^.^! It is too early to see how this is going to finally conclude, but I see the games ending in one of two ways.
1. Because Sting has hidden for most of the fighting, he will be able to take out several of the remaining combatants bringing Sabertooth's victory (despite Fairy Tail and the other Guilds doing a good part of the heavy fighting...making it almost a cheap victory)
2. Fairy Tail manages to win; however, somehow it is discovered that Jellal was Mystogan, and they get disqualified.
How do you think the final fights will go down?!
