Gajevy (ガジレビ Gajirebi) is a semi-canon pair between Fairy Tail Mages, Gajeel Redfox and Levy McGarden. This pair is also known as GaLe.
About Gajeel and LevyEdit
Gajeel Redfox (ガジル・レッドフォックス Gajiru Reddofokkusu) is an Iron Dragon Slayer, a member of the Fairy Tail Guild and a former S-Class Mage of Phantom Lord. After Fairy Tail's disbandment, Gajeel joins the Magic Council and becomes the captain of the Custody Enforcement Unit, but after Avatar is defeated, he returns to Fairy Tail. Originally a Dragon Slayer from four hundred years past, Gajeel was sent to the future to assist in the destruction of Acnologia.
Gajeel is a tall and muscular young man with long, spiky black hair, which is usually kept slicked back, revealing his forehead. He has red eyes (initially portrayed as green) with slitted dark pupils, and has no visible eyebrows. Most of his exposed body is covered in sets of simple, round studs. The most visible studs are on his face, with three of them above each of his eyes (acting as "eyebrows" of sorts), two on each side of his nose (sometimes mistakenly three in the anime), and two on his chin, just below his mouth. His ears are adorned by two sets of five earrings each.
He also sports four studs on each of his forearms, with his right one being covered in scars. As a member of the former Phantom Lord Guild, he bore his Phantom Lord mark at the top of his right shoulder. After joining Fairy Tail, his black Fairy Tail mark is located on his left arm, just below his shoulder. Being a Dragon Slayer, Gajeel's canine teeth are distinctively sharper than normal.
Gajeel's usual outfit consists of a shabby, black, sleeveless tunic with studded edges, a studded belt around his waist, loose, beige pants tucked inside studded black boots, and a pair of studded brown gloves paired with similarly studded wristbands. He also sports a distinctive wing-like ornament, seemingly made of feathers, jutting upwards, over his right shoulder, attached to his tunic by a large stud.
During the 5th Day of the Grand Magic Games, Gajeel wears a dark blue trench coat, whose tail reaching down to his upper-calves, with a green short-sleeved shirt worn under it, along with beige pants, with a grey belt around his waist, and a pair of black boots. His hair remains the same, albeit with strands of hair on the side of his head, hiding his ears, and wearing a dark yellow bandana on his forehead. He also wears finger-less dark brown gloves, with studs on the knuckles.
When Gajeel first appeared, Gajeel is quite cold and apathetic, not hesitating to injure his own allies if irritated. He iron-clubbed a fellow Phantom Lord Mage who was praising his abilities simply because the latter was disturbing him while he was eating. However, Gajeel is completely and genuinely dedicated to whatever guild he is affiliated with. In fact, he instigated the Fairy Tail-Phantom Lord Guild War simply because, as long time-rivals, he believed that the Fairy Tail Mages were enemies. Upon his recruitment to Fairy Tail, his sense of comradeship seemed to increase. He even went as far as reprimanding Laxus Dreyar, whom he admits to be a more powerful Mage than he is, for attempting to kill Natsu with his Lightning Magic when they were supposed to be allies.
Despite saying that he doesn't wish to make friends, he ironically forms them through his tenacious personality. He believes himself to be a great musician, regardless of what others think of him, and enjoys showing off his metal grinding, glass cracking, and ear destroying voice, like when he chains Mirajane Strauss to a wall to steal her spot as the performing artist for the night. He's also displayed a sense of honor, despite his actions while a part of Phantom Lord; when Shadow Gear confronts Gajeel for the heinous act he committed upon them, he makes himself an open target, acknowledging the terrible act he had done to them, and gave them the opportunity for vengeance. He even protected Levy McGarden after Laxus shot a blast of lightning at her, showing both his compassion for his guildmates, as well as some initial hidden hatred for Laxus.
Gajeel is short-tempered, as seen when he and Natsu bicker over callow things. Like Natsu, Gajeel lives for the thrill of combat, and is visibly frustrated when faced with circumstances where he is denied the opportunity of fighting a skilled adversary, as seen during the S-Class Trials. Despite his cold personality, he has shown a humorous side of himself, as seen when he was shocked to see Mirajane transform her face into his.
Despite his tough exterior, Gajeel is as emotionally vulnerable as any other person. He was noticeably upset upon realizing that he was the only Dragon Slayer that didn't have a cat as a partner. He then desperately tries to find a cat in the alleys, but ends up becoming heavily exhausted. Later on in Edolas, Gajeel finds the partner he is looking for in Panther Lily. Upon arriving back in Earth Land, he cries tears of joy when he discovers Panther Lily also made it, despite his reduced size.
Gajeel has a unique way of laughing: "Gi Hi Hi Hi". And, like quite a few other Dragon Slayers, Gajeel suffers from severe motion sickness, although his case does not develop until the Second Day of the Grand Magic Games in X791 during the Chariot event.
Levy McGarden (レビィ・マクガーデン Rebī Makugāden) is a Mage of the Fairy Tail Guild. She is the leader of Shadow Gear and, out of her teammates, does most of the work. She was a member of Magic Council's Custody Enforcement Unit, but after the defeat of Avatar, left to rejoin Fairy Tail.
Levy is a young, teenage girl with a slender build and stands at a height below average for her age. She sports blue hair, with the top cut short and the bottom longer, normally tied up with a colorful bandana around her head. While her hair is initially rather straight in the beginning of the series, over time her hair has grown more wavy and wild, with more locks hanging down the sides of her face. Her outfit varies throughout the series, but she has typically been seen wearing either dresses or a tank top with shorts. Her guild mark is located on her left shoulder blade. When performing tasks such as researching, she wears a pair of Gale-Force Reading Glasses and tends to tie up her hair to keep it out of her face.
Levy has a cheerful and upbeat personality, being able to get along with many other guild members. Her kind spirit is shown by her reluctance to get involved in the many brawls the guild has together, as she is too nice to fight "just for fun." She is also a very forgiving person, as she reconciled with Gajeel Redfox for torturing her and her teammates during the Phantom Lord arc. Their friendship has also grown to the point where he has become her partner for the S-Class Promotion Trial (albeit Gajeel more or less declared himself her partner), and it is hinted that she may carry romantic feelings for him.
Levy is characterized by her love for reading, which is how she and Lucy Heartfilia quickly became friends through their mutual love of books. Levy has also been the only person to read Lucy's novel with her consent, showing their level of trust in each other. At times, Levy can be competitive – she rewrote Freed Justine's runes seemingly for the whole boat in the Tenrou Island arc, but she actually only did it for Gajeel and herself. This surprises Lucy, but Levy shyly and sarcastically says she's sorry to her as she advances. Levy is also one of the more mature members of the guild, as she was the first to abandon the S-Class Promotion Trial in favor of unifying the guild members, whereas some did not want to stop the trial at all.
Originally born over 400 years ago, Gajeel, an orphan, was raised and taught Iron Dragon Slayer Magic by Metalicana, then had his body used to house his foster father's damaged soul; Metalicana hid himself inside Gajeel's body to create antibodies that would stop Gajeel's natural Dragonification process. Gajeel was then sent forward in time four hundred years, awakening on July 7, X777, so that Metalicana's damaged soul could recover in the dense Ethernano atmosphere so that he could exit and attempt to someday kill Acnologia. Gajeel had believed this was the day Metalicana had disappeared and set off to find him. Some time later, Gajeel joined Phantom Lord. During his time in Phantom Lord, Gajeel was admired from afar by a young man named Rogue Cheney, who was known then as Ryos.
An unspecified time before the war against Fairy Tail, Gajeel was brought forth before the Magic Council and was reprimanded for actions he committed. After the trial, Belno spoke to him and besought that he withdraw from Phantom Lord, which offended him rather greatly. He is then told to seek a life worth living rather than be preached to about how to live life, which he responded to by saying that the upcoming war with Fairy Tail gives it meaning, after which Belno told him that he reminds her of her dead son.
Not much is known about Levy's past, but it is known that her fellow Shadow Gear members, Jet and Droy, have asked her out before. However, both were rejected by her in a matter of seconds.
In the omake episode Fairy Hills, it also shows a younger Levy residing there, so it is clear that she has been in the guild since she was a child.
Gajeel and Levy are very close friends and guildmates. However, when they met for the first time, they were members of enemy guilds. Gajeel attacks Levy and her teammates, defeats them in a one sided battle, nails them to a tree, and brands Phantom Lord's symbol onto Levy's stomach.
After the war between the two guilds and Gajeel's subsequent conversion over to Fairy Tail, Levy is still among those who have their doubts about the man's entrance to their guild as one of their newest members. However, after Laxus Dreyar attacks Levy while her team is bullying Gajeel, Gajeel blocks the blow for her and it lowers her doubts about him.
During the start of the S-Class Mage Promotion Trial, Levy is among the eight candidates who are selected to take part in the test, something which has her show a lack of confidence. In the end, however, she is encouraged by Gajeel, who even volunteers to be her partner, which makes her blush. During the Intelligence part of the S-Class Trial, the Iron Dragon Slayer constantly annoys Levy, and tells her that if she wants attention from him, she should get stronger and seriously fight him once in a while, not regarding Levy's disappointed feelings at his demeaning words. However, when Levy runs away out of frustration, Gajeel chases after her and saves her life from Yomazu and Kawazu, two members of Grimoire Heart. In the said instance, he tells her that, "It is really hard looking for someone so small," but follows his remark by saying, "so don't leave my side please."
Levy is shown to care about Gajeel's well-being, seen when she watched over him in his unconscious state on Tenrou Island and also tried to stop him from baiting Laxus when he was slightly intoxicated. As for Gajeel, he cares for Levy to the point that his own safety is less important than hers. During his battle with Bradman, Gajeel claims that he will bring Levy home safe and sound, no matter the cost, and risked his own life by inhaling poisonous magical particles.
During Gajeel's battle against Rogue, Levy shouts out in shock as Rogue obtains a strange power and injures Gajeel. As the battle continues, Levy watches as Gajeel is continuously beaten upon.Levy then watches in fear as Gajeel is being strangled, screaming for "Shadow" to stop, lest the Iron Dragon Slayer die. Levy cried when she sees Gajeel's suffering. However, Gajeel's eating of Rogue's shadows warrants Levy's full curiosity as she wonders what is happening. Once Gajeel has won the fight, Levy is then shown blushing with Cana patting her head.
During the battle with the Spriggan 12, Gajeel is battling Bradman, who through his intimidating speech reminds Gajeel of the day he attacked Levy, Jet and Droy, which Gajeel refers to as the worst day of his life. Levy later shows up to help Gajeel, much to his dismay, but she proves to be an asset. This is until her Solid Script: Mask is shown to wear off, though she revealed it gave her no true defense against Bradman's anti-magic particle release. This angers Gajeel as he didn't want to put Levy in any danger and says he will defeat Bradman quickly so he may take Levy back to the guild safe and sound, remarking that he will protect 'the girl he fell for'.
Being that Bradman couldn't be affected by physical attacks, Gajeel then ingests all of the anti-magic particles from the air, similar to his actions during his battle with Torfuzar which allowed him to achieve Dragon Force. Gajeel then swiftly defeats Bradman, but right as he is defeated, Bradman begins to absorb Gajeel into his body in order to drag him into the underworld with him. Levy immediately rushed to Gajeel's aid, but he protests as Levy would likely be sucked into the trap and Gajeel noticed that he was beyond saving at that moment. Levy continues to fight to save Gajeel, claiming she is no longer the weakling or damsel in distress he once knew. Gajeel begs her to stop, only for Pantherlily to step in and restrain Levy. As Gajeel is being pulled into the portal, he confesses how being in Fairy Tail with Levy by his side opened his eyes to what the future could be for him, his love for her and of his thoughts about their future together with a family in such before finally thanking her for showing him love. Gajeel then makes Pantherlily promise to get Levy home safe, to which Pantherlily tearfully swears on his life. With one last smirk, Gajeel is sucked into the portal, Levy and Pantherlily are left sobbing and heartbroken over the apparent demise of their beloved comrade.
Later, it is revealed that Gajeel did not die, but due to Irene's Universe One, he was teleported to Tenrou Island instead of the Underworld, where he meets Zera whom explains to him what happened. After hearing the unbelievable explanation and the revelation that he did not die, Gajeel realizes and blushes at his confession of love to Levy. When Zera telepathically communicates with the entirety of Fairy Tail to rush to Mavis' side, albeit nervously causing the others to question the legitimacy of her plea, Gajeel speaks up, providing the proof that they need to charge forward. When hearing this, Levy and Pantherlily are taken aback, with Levy saying "Gajeel" with tears in her eyes, relieved that he wasn't killed after all.
Following the death of Acnologia at Lucy's award ceremony for her book, Levy approaches Gajeel to whisper in his ear that she is pregnant. Lucy couldn't quite hear them but swore she heard baby and realized her suspicions were true after seeing Wendy's reaction to what they heard given Wendy has better ears.
Phantom Lord ArcEdit
Gajeel Redfox lead the initial strike against Fairy Tail, using guerrilla tactics, by compromising the Fairy Tail guildhall with large iron pillars that protruded throughout the building, destroying the guildhall's foundation. Later the next evening, Levy Mcgarden, along with Jet and Droy, were attacked by Gajeel, and after being badly beaten, were chained to a tree in the style of a crucifix. Out of the three, Levy was the only one branded with the Phantom Lord symbol on her stomach. This event is the trigger that starts the war between Fairy Tail and Phantom Lord. During the remainder of the events, Levy, Jet, and Droy remain in the hospital recovering.
The war between Fairy Tail and Phantom Lord finally comes to an end, with everyone cheering. Lucy Heartfilia feels guilty for what happened to everyone, but then team Shadow Gear appears and tells her that she is not to be blamed. Sometime later, Phantom Lord is disbanded, and Makarov offers Gajeel membership to Fairy Tail to help guide him down the right path. Moved by Makarov's mercy and compassion, Gajeel accepts his offer.
Battle of Fairy Tail ArcEdit
After Makarov introduces Gajeel as a new Fairy Tail member, Levy is seen saying to Lucy, despite her bodily tremors, that Gajeel's presence is not bothering her. Jet and Droy, who hold a grudge against him for attacking them, pick a fight when he tries to go on a mission, though Gajeel does not fight back. Levy, who was present during the whole event, tries to stop her teammates. Laxus soon arrives and blames him for ruining Fairy Tail's reputation by destroying and then joining the guild. Laxus then begins to brutally assault Gajeel, warranting even Jet and Droy's concern. Even still, Gajeel does not fight back, leading Shadow Gear to reason that he is trying to earn their acceptance. As Levy tries to stop Laxus, he attacks her with a bolt of lightning, though Gajeel intercepts the attack, much to her surprise. With no one willing to fight anymore, Gajeel staggers off to continue his mission.
Levy is seen participating in the Miss Fairy Tail but turned into stone by Evergreen and is used as a hostage for Laxus' scheme along with the other participants. As Laxus tries to take over the guild, Gajeel eats some metal and prepares to go after him, but, as with Natsu, he is stopped by Freed's enchantment that prevents those over the age of 80 from exiting the Guildhall. When Erza defeats Evergreen, Levy and the other petrified girls are returned to their normal states. She then notices that Freed's restrictions are a form of rune-based Magic and informs the others that she'll undo the restrictions so that Natsu and Gajeel can leave, as she believes them to be capable of defeating Laxus. While working, Levy notices Gajeel staring at her and informs him that he must defeat Laxus.
After Lucy defeats Bickslow, Levy states that such a thing is to be expected, before resolving to do her best as well. She then manages to rewrite Freed's runes, allowing Natsu and Gajeel to finally exit the guild and fight. Before they leave, she tells them to stay away from one another as Freed's enchantments are still active in the surrounding area and that if they were both caught in one, everything would be over.
After Laxus is defeated, Levy participates in the Fantasia Parade together with the other Miss Fairy Tail contestants. When the Fantasia Parade is over, Gajeel meets up with Makarov in private and giving him a note containing a report on Ivan's location and dealings.
Tenrou Island ArcEdit
With the events revolving around Edolas over, Gajeel and Levy, alongside the rest of the guild, witnesses Makarov announce the S-Class Mage Promotion Trial, Levy is named as a candidate for the S-Class Mage Promotion Trial, leaving her surprised, wondering if Makarov actually called her name. Jet and Droy are delighted to hear her nomination while Gajeel is greatly shocked that he wasn't chosen as a candidate. Jet and Droy start arguing over who will be Levy's partner in the S-Class Promotion Trial, Gajeel steps up saying that he will help her. Levy feels she has no chance since she doesn't consider herself strong, which prompts Gajeel to yell at her to be more positive, and that he would help to make her stronger , causing her to blush.
As the participants head towards Tenrou Island on a boat, Levy becomes dizzy due to the extreme heat but Gajeel seems unaffected by it. Shortly thereafter, Makarov appears and explains the rules of the first portion of the trial. When the first trial starts, Freed places a rune on the boat, preventing everyone from leaving for five minutes. However, Levy manages to rewrite Freed's rune in an instant, though she only lets herself and Gajeel leave. They then swim to the island and arrive before everyone else, except Freed's team. The two then, by chance, pick the quiet path, which displeases Gajeel as he was unable to fight anybody.
During the second part of the test, Gajeel and Levy start a search for the First Guild Master's grave. Along the way, Gajeel grumbles about the test and him not being able to fight Natsu or Erza. Levy becomes frustrated with Gajeel for ignoring her and teasing her about her strength, before running away from him. Later, she regrets running away but is ambushed by two Grimoire Heart members. Gajeel saves her just in time and tells her not to leave his side again, to which she agrees. With Gajeel and Levy back-to-back, he then asks for the identities of their ambushers, and though the perpetrators choose not to answer, the Guild crests on their body reveal to Gajeel that they are affiliated with the Grimoire Heart Guild.
With Grimoire Heart Mages present during the S-Class Trials, Gajeel wonders if the Master recruited Mages from a Dark Guild to pose as obstacles, being part of the trials without telling anyone else, to which Levy dismissed as negative and replies that it is more likely that they have sneaked into the island unauthorized.The members reveal themselves to be Kawazu and Yomazu and the battle of the two pairs begins. Gajeel and Levy are easily overpowered by the Dark Mages, so Gajeel tells Levy to run and warn the others. Before she leaves, she helps Gajeel replenish his energy by using her Magic to form a word from iron (with a notable heart in the middle of the O). With pure determination and pride, Gajeel battles the two Dark Mages despite his severe injuries in order to defend his guild.
Concurrently, Levy finds herself in front of Erza and Juvia, who ask her what happened. Informing them of the perils to come, the three women run back towards the site of Gajeel's battle, where they find Gajeel falling to the ground, heavily wounded, in victory. Frantically running towards the Iron Dragon Slayer, Levy begs Gajeel to "hang in there" whilst leaning over his battered body, shaking in anxiety. Comprehending the severity of the battle, Erza declares that the exam is now on hold, and launches a signal flare to let everyone know about the enemy attack.
Moments later, as Erza begins to interrogate Yomazu, Levy announces that she'll take Gajeel to the camp. She is later seen being surrounded with the Mages deployed by Grimoire Heart with a still-unconscious Gajeel hanging from her shoulder. Levy is eventually able to escape and reaches the camp, crying over Gajeel and Mirajane's bodies.
After Hades is defeated. The lesser Mages of Grimoire Heart come storming in while chasing Happy and Carla, though they run away at the sight of Gajeel, Levy, and the other Fairy Tail Mages, including Makarov, who have just arrived.
Afterwards, they head back to the camp site. As Wendy begins to treat all of the wounded, Erza reequips into a nurse uniform, causing all of the men to go to her, including Gajeel. As she attempts to wrap bandages for Gajeel and Gray, Levy is shown angrily saying Gajeel's name, hinting at a possible jealousy over the fact that he went to Erza. Suddenly, they all feel an ominous presence around them. It was Acnologia, the infamous Black Dragon, who lands on Tenrou Island and starts rampaging, prompting the Fairy Tail members to begin running towards the ship. Makarov then enters full Titan mode and grabs Acnologia, holding it off from attacking the guild members. Gajeel, Levy, and the others express their desire to help Makarov, but he shouts for them to not disobey his final order. When Makarov is overwhelmed by Acnologia, all of them return and go all out against the Dragon. As Acnologia, having shrugged off all the combined attacks from its assailants, flies high up into the sky and readies to fire a breath attack against Tenrou Island. Seeing this, Gajeel, Levy, and the rest of the guild members join their hands in a circle. While promising they will return home to Fairy Tail, they are struck by Acnologia's blast, which completely annihilates Tenrou Island, leaving nothing behind.
X791 ArcEditGajeel and Levy, along with the rest of the Tenrou Team, is rescued by Bisca, Alzack, Jet, Droy, Max, Warren and The Trimens from Blue Pegasus. Before she disappears, they watch as Mavis Vermilion reveals that she was the one who saved them. When they return to the Fairy Tail Guild, Gajeel along with Natsu, Erza, and Gray, defeats the members of Twilight Ogre whom were threatening Romeo, who gave everyone a tearful welcome back.
Key of the Starry Sky ArcEdit
Note: The events in this arc occur only in the anime and do not constitute canon material.
When the members of Fairy Tail begin to practice their dancing skills in preparation for a dance ball, Gajeel notices Levy looking in his direction and tells her outright that he is, by no means, going to ask her to dance, however she rebukes saying that no one asked him to. Levy then gets asked by Jet and Droy to dance, however as Jet and Droy starts to bicker, she soon starts dancing with Gajeel, leaving Jet and Droy to stare on in disbelief.
When Fairy Tail decides to separate in teams in order to gather the five remaining keys, Levy teams up with Pantherlily, Jet and Droy. Hiking on a mountain, they found Gajeel in his training, which is joined by Pantherlily, the team, now including Gajeel, set out after their brief training session.
The team heads to a mountain that Lucy had claimed to contain a clock piece. The team starts climbing the mountain in search of the clock piece while Pantherlily flies beside them. Gajeel climbs the fastest, arriving at the top with Pantherlily before Team Shadow Gear. When Levy, Jet, and Droy finally get to the top, they ask for a break, to which Gajeel firmly denies. They soon noticed that the clock piece was nowhere to be found. Gajeel then claims that it may be buried somewhere in the mountainside and begins to dig as the others lie down exhausted. Levy eventually starts digging down into the mountain with the others. She stops digging when Gajeel states that someone is watching them and the group soon discovers that one of the Legion Corps, Samuel, is present and also searching for the clock part.
Pantherlily orders the rest to search for the part while he keeps Samuel busy. By digging, Gajeel opens the entrance to a lower room with weird faces and finds some symbols, which, according to Levy, mean "I'm hungry". After Jet says that, seeing the room from afar, it looks like a huge clock, Droy realizes that it should be pointing towards lunch time. After Gajeel moves the pointers of the clock to that specific time, the clock part appears in front of the group.
A clock-like statue appears and the group goes to it. Gajeel steps up and licks the face of the statue, telling them it's made of iron, to which the rest wonder if he could have discovered its physical properties through other means. Levy sees that there is scripture on the statue and goes to translate it, but Gajeel stops her, telling her that they don't have the time. Instead, he pulls on the iron piece and ends up setting off a trap which results in the nearby statue coming to life and viciously attacking them. After dodging its attacks, the group notices a device on the statue's head and reasons that destroying it will shut down the statue. Team Shadow Gear attempts to reach the top of the stone figure with a combination of Levy's Solid Script, Droy's vines, and Jet's speed. Their teamwork appears successful, prompting Gajeel to praise Levy, nodding his head in approval as he does so.
However, when Jet and Droy fail to reach it, Levy is determined to do it herself, only to be stopped by Gajeel, who attempts to go after the red object himself but soon fails. When Gajeel attempts to eat the iron part, in order to restore his energy, he and Levy argue once again but Gajeel soon realizes that the creature is not after the Fairy Tail Mages, but the clock part itself. Knowing this, he throws the part to an ignorant Levy and soon afterwards heads after the red object on the guardian's head and destroys it, along with the guardian itself. At the same time, Pantherlily beats Samuel, who is utterly confused about his wrong calculations, and Levy comments on that saying that there are all kinds of Exceeds out there.
As the group returns with their clock piece, they are annoyed that Samuel is following them. Gajeel, Levy, Jet, and Droy are seen walking as Samuel tells Pantherlily that Exceed perceive time differently to humans, and that due to this, there was something in the Key of the Starry Heavens that leaped out at him.
As they're walking, the clock piece suddenly emits a bright light. The team head to the same desert where Natsu's group has been searching for their respective clock piece, carrying their own with them. They and the other search parties arrive and prepare to fight Byro Cracy but their Magic is nullified. However, before their battle can escalate, all the clock piece assemble before them, forming the Infinity Clock. As it chimes a deafening sound, a group of six people arrive at the scene.
As Fairy Tail and the Legion Corps try to retrieve the Infinity Clock from the Reborn Oración Seis, Angel destroys the nearby architecture with her Angel Magic, allowing them to escape. The group is later rescued by The Trimens.
After returning to the guild, the group soon decides that they will pursue the Infinity Clock and the Reborn Oración Seis, using Cana to properly pair them up and divine the locations of the six Dark Mages. Gajeel is teamed up with Juvia, who annoys him when she keeps insisting he swap with Gray. Finally convincing Juvia that parting from Gray will be alright, the groups sets out. Levy, along with Freed and Jean-Luc, stayed at the guild to try and decipher the secret of Real Nightmare. She watches as Jean-Luc states that Happy was correct: if they defeat the Reborn Oración Seis, the Real Nightmare will be stopped.
After defeating the Reborn Oración Seis and destroying the Infinity Clock, Gajeel, Levy, and the rest of Fairy Tail celebrate with the Legion Corps. They then later say goodbye to the Legionnaires, who apologized to them, as they head off on their journey to seek out and seal the scattered parts of the Infinity Clock.
Grand Magic Games ArcEdit
After Fairy Tail decides to enter the Grand Magic Games, she goes to the beach alongside others from the guild so as to train and build up her strength in time for the Grand Magic Games. While playing in the water, Lucy and Levy begin to talk about the other returning members who all went to a different training site. Lucy then decides teasing Levy about her wanting to go with Gajeel on his special training.
After their humiliating defeat, the members of Fairy Tail regroup, but are still hopeful that they will be able to make a comeback and start partying. During the party, Gajeel says that he wants to fight Natsu, Laxus comments that if the two Dragon Slayers decide to fight, it won't be for fun any more, which prompts Gajeel to pat Laxus on the head, with Levy trying to stop him. Gajeel says that Laxus has become quite peace-loving which angers Freed.
After Fairy Tail's good performance on the third day of the Grand Magic Games, the guild once again heads out to celebrate at a bar. While there, Levy congratulates Wendy on her performance in the final battle with Gajeel sleeping beside her. Despite being warned on how dangerous it is, Natsu begins barrel surfing with Happy which ends up them knocking over Gajeel. Levy, who was also watching with the rest of Fairy Tail, encourages Lucy to give it a shot and receiving Lucy's excuse of not wanting to due to her wearing of a skirt, Levy quickly points out that Erza has been barrel surfing in a skirt the whole time. As the guild parties on, Levy mentally comments that when she closes her eyes, she can remember all of these times together, seemingly directing this thought at Lucy.
As the party continues, Levy finds Erza, Wendy and Lucy, telling them about a popular leisure center in Crocus that she has heard about. When the rest of Fairy Tail decide to go to Ryuzetsu Land, Gajeel and Levy walk with Happy, Charle and Pantherlily, who decide to go to a nearby aquarium. Gajeel is asked by Levy if he would like to join them, but Gajeel quickly denies the offer, stating that there is no way he would go to a place like that. As the day progresses, Gajeel is seen sticking his head through a cutout, appearing as a fish with hairy legs which caused Levy to laugh at him. A little while later, Gray and Lyon Vastia end up in a dispute and freeze the pool. Such an action prompts Natsu to attempt to melt the ice with his Fire Dragon Slayer Magic, but, much to Makarov and Mavis' chagrin, ends up destroying the entirety of Ryuzetsu Land, causing Gajeel to land on top of the voluminous amounts rubble, the cutout laying atop his body while Levy is seen beside him, completely confused at the events that have taken place.
After a tag battle between Team Mermaid Heel and Team Lamia Scale results in a draw, Team Fairy Tail and Team Sabertooth's battles begin. A determined Natsu and Gajeel march into the Domus Flaus and prepare to battle Sting and Rogue. In the stands, Levy thinks about Gajeel before the Battle of the Dragon Slayers begins. As the battle between the four Dragon Slayers continue, Sting jumps in the air and unleashes his White Dragon's Holy Breath, shattering the floor of the arena and sends the two Fairy Tail Mages plummeting into the catacombs that lay below which causes Levy to worriedly call out to Gajeel. Upon Natsu's victory, Levy cheers loudly with her teammates. Afterwards, she goes to visit Lucy in the infirmary where she says happily that they may win the Grand Magic Games at the rate they're going. She then asks about Gajeel but is told he's not there.
When the final day of the Games gets under way, Gajeel heads out with the rest of Team Fairy Tail while Levy stands in the crowd with the rest of Fairy Tail, cheering for the team representing their guild.. Soon after, during Gajeel's battle against Rogue, Levy shouts out in shock as Rogue is possessed and injures Gajeel. As the battle continues, Levy watches as Gajeel is continuously brutalized. Levy then watches in fear as Gajeel is being strangled, screaming for "Shadow" to stop, lest the Iron Dragon Slayer die. However, Gajeel's eating of Rogue's shadows warrants Levy's full curiosity as she wonders what is happening. Her worries are lifted when Gajeel impressively defeats Rogue, smiling as he does so.
After his comrades' battles are concluded, Gajeel spots Sting's signal flare in the sky and heads towards it, arriving at its original location with the other members of his team. Watching the Sabertooth man power up, Gajeel stands tall and proud beside his teammates, awaiting the actions to come. Sting, however, begins to second-guess himself, and eventually falls to the ground without even trying to, so much as, fight, openly declaring his defeat. Due to this act, Sting has granted Fairy Tail victory in the Grand Magic Games, Gajeel smirks at his team, much to Levy's happiness.
After the Grand Magic Games have come to a close, the King of Fiore accumulates all of the Mages from all the guilds to acknowledge them of the impending disaster and what the Kingdom plans to do to combat against the calamity. The King continues by requesting their assistance against the Dragons who will survive the Eclipse Plan; Gajeel, Levy, and all the other Mages loudly declare that they will help.
Gajeel, Levy, and the guild leave soon after, heading to Central Park, the place they have been asked to protect from the 10,000 Dragons should they fail to be taken out by the Eclipse Cannon. Standing next to each other as the clock strikes midnight, Gajeel notes how the Dragons disappeared, and are now going to reappear, on the same day. As the Dragons begin their attack, Gajeel, Levy, and their fellow Mages find themselves against the Dragon Atlas Flame, who, after introducing itself, blows them away with its mighty Roar. Momentarily, Natsu shouts to all the Mages from the skies that they can defeat Dragons with Dragon Slayer Magic and that with seven Dragons and seven Dragon Slayers, they can win. After Natsu's announcement, Laxus decides to take the liberty of facing off against Atlas Flame, and shouts to Levy and the rest of the Fairy Tail members to defeat the numerous Draconian beings that Motherglare deposited as eggs while Gajeel is told by Mavis to go find another Dragon to defeat. After the Eclipse Gate is demolished, the Dragons and the Hatchlings slowly disappear from the battlefield, Gajeel is approached by Levy, who is overjoyed that they managed to fend off the total destruction of Crocus. Gajeel, however, is still hung up over the fact that none of the Dragon Slayers were able to defeat a Dragon.
Several days after the Dragons return to the past, the King holds a banquet for all the Mages who helped fend off the great beasts, which Gajeel and Levy attend.  Away from the ballroom, Levy was already writing down the events, telling herself that they managed to beat fate. Gajeel approaches to ask what she is doing, and Levy compliments him on his previous battle, stating that she is happy he lived.
Eclipse Celestial Spirits ArcEdit
Note: The events in this arc occur only in the anime and do not constitute canon material.
As the Celestial Spirits performed the Liberum, they are interrupted by Gajeel, Levy, and the other Fairy Tail members which causes the Celestial Spirits to return to their gates. This prompts everyone to follow. Using Hisui's Celestial Spirit Banishment Keys, they manage to enter and encounter their respective Celestial Spirits, engaging them in various competitions. Gajeel and Lily took the Banishment Key to track down Gemini while Levy took the one for Capricorn.
After defeating their respective spirits, Gajeel, Levy, and the others meet back up in the hub world only to notice that Natsu, Lucy and Yukino are not around, deducing that they are still fighting.
Realizing that in order to stop Liberum Versus they must destroy Ophiuchus' body at the same time, Erza orders Gajeel, Levy, and the others to strike the beast from different locations.
With the defeat of Eclipse Ophiuchus, the Fairy Tail Mages think that the Celestial Spirits have returned to normal but the ground around them shake and Horologium comes to inform the Mages that the Eclipse Celestial Spirit King will destroy the Celestial Spirit World. He provides the group of Mages Celestial clothing, allowing them travel to the Celestial World. After deciding that the Spirits are to be saved, the Fairy Tail Mages head to the Celestial Spirit World. Erza signals the rest of Fairy Tail to attack but find their attacks ineffective, even when done simultaneously.

Sun Village ArcEdit
After her return to Magnolia, Levy joins several of the other women of the guild for a relaxing bath. Lucy questions Levy, remembering that she was supposed to work that day. Levy responds that Jet and Droy say they want to work alone sometimes and that they were fired up to do so.
Elsewhere, Jet and Droy, who followed Gajeel and Panther Lily on their mission, are caught by a tribe of masked warriors ask Gajeel to save them.
Alongside several of their guildmates, Gajeel and Levy look through a book with information on E.N.D. and find out that it is on a completely different scale from other Demons like Deliora and Lullaby, which leads the group to conclude that it is Zeref's strongest Demon. Before they can discuss further, Jet comes storming in the guild, carrying some bad news. Later on, Gajeel, Levy, along with the other Fairy Tail Mages, are present when Porlyusica diagnoses that Laxus, Freed, Bickslow and Evergreen will survive despite their lethal poisoning. Gajeel and Levy stand next to each other as Loke enters the guild hall and claims that he knows the location of some former councilors. Gajeel and Levy then listen to Makarov's inspiring speech about eliminating Tartarus for the sake of their friends.
After Gajeel and Levy, being dispatched alongside Pantherlily and the rest of Team Shadow Gear, Gajeel regrettably notifies Makarov that they were too late in rescuing Belno from Tartarus, blaming himself for not arriving sooner. Still connected to the Lacrima in the guild, Gajeel and Levy listen to Michello as the latter reveals what Face is and its ability. They and the rest of the Fairy Tail members anxiously discuss their next course of action.
After the dispatched teams return from their expeditions, Gajeel and Levy hear Lucy and the others admit that they were unable to find Natsu and the others. As they discuss on, Happy returns bearing information of the missing members. After discovering that Tartarus' base is atop a moving square, the members conclude that they are unable to pinpoint the exact location. After Levy inquires Happy of their approximate whereabouts, she takes the liberty of calculating Tartarus' course of travel. Upon successfully pinpointing their base, Levy informs her guildmates that the base is directly above Magnolia. Gajeel then points out that Tartarus came to them instead of the other way around. A huge explosion suddenly goes off and destroys the guild, leaving the fate of its members unknown. However, it is soon revealed that Cana learned of the bomb before it went off and, using a technique she recently learned, turns Gajeel, Levy, and there rest of the guild into cards and had the Exceeds head straight for Cube, where they were released from the cards to launch their counterattack. Later, Gajeel, Levy, along with the rest of Fairy Tail, are addressed by Mard Geer who threatens their lives with a powerful Curse, Alegria. Like the rest of the guild, they fall victims to the sudden transformation of the surrounding land, and are petrified in stone.
During their fight against Torafusa and Tempesta, Gajeel and Natsu begin to bicker, until Tempesta releases a massive wave of black water. Hearing Gajeel's voice, Levy swims to his location. Gajeel tells Natsu to save the girls and find an escape route through the water, only to find him unconscious. Gajeel is informed that the water is poisonous and will kill him and his comrades in five minutes. Battling Torafusa, Gajeel's air suply soon fades, causing Gajeel to question his likeliness to survive. His consciousness diminishing, Gajeel sees a light. Levy appears and transfers her own air to Gajeel via mouth to mouth, causing him to awaken at her own consciousness' expense. Seeing Levy's presence, Gajeel wonders why she is there. Torafusa attacks Gajeel once more, but Gajeel re-enters Iron Shadow Dragon Mode and is able to properly fight back, while carrying Levy.
Being brought back to her senses when Gajeel viscously shakes her, Levy is asked by the Dragon Slayer to give air to her other comrades, and becomes flustered when she realizes she could have used her Magic to give Gajeel air rather than mouth-to-mouth. Using her Magic at once, Levy creates a bubble of air for her and Gajeel to breath by, and then swims off to help Juvia, Lucy and Natsu as Gajeel continues to battle Torafuzar.
A week after the defeat of Tartaros, Levy spends time with Gajeel, who tries to deal with Metalicana's loss. When he falls asleep on the pavement, Levy reminds him that it is not the guild, so he can't do that, but her remark only meets his silence as a response.
Gajeel, Pantherlily and Levy joined Magic Council's forces while Fairy Tail was disbanded, between X791 and X792.
Levy infiltrated into Avatar's cult gaining the information to arrest all cultist. The trio didn't catch the former comrades of Fairy Tail, although Gajeel stated several times that he was going to arrest then. After that, Levy and Gajeel went to the Magic Council to officially quit their jobs as members of the Magic Council Enforcement Unit and met later in Magnolia with the rest of their guild partners.
Alvarez Empire ArcEdit
Gajeel and the reformed B team heads off to help the main infiltration team by finding Laxus. Levy angrily catches up with them and states that she was not invited. However, Gajeel retorted by saying that she was so small so she could have fit into his bag, resulting in her exclaiming that Gajeel was a big dummy. Juvia makes some comments about them, and thinks they are flirting.
When the group arrives are at Blue Pegasus' hot springs, they meet up with Ichiya, who tells them that Laxus and the Thunder God Tribe have joined Blue Pegasus, something that shocks Levy. When Gajeel is knocked over to the women's side of the hot springs and lands on top of Levy, she is visibly embarrassed and thus hits him.
The night before the battle is to begin, Levy sees Gajeel sitting out late at night and asks if he is going to rest up, to which he responds she is one to talk. Levy states that she is scared as the enemy is the most powerful they have ever faced and her magic just doesn't compare. Suddenly, Gajeel surrounds her in iron clubs, stating he is going to arrest her for complaining. She pouts slightly before he says he is going to arrest her and lock her up in the guild's prisons, causing her to then smile.
Gajeel later gets into a fight with Bradman, for bringing up the worst memory of his life, which is hanging Levy. While fighting Bradman, Levy jumps in to save Gajeel from an otherwise unavoidable attack. Levy then uses her magic to make a mask that will allow her to fight without being affected by the anti-magic particles Bradman is made of. The two continue to fight until Levy starts coughing up blood with her mask off. Gajeel tells her to put the mask back on, but Levy says the mask has no effect when it comes to protecting herself. Levy pretended the mask worked so she could save Gajeel. Gajeel then promises to be back as soon as he defeats Bradman. While fighting he states that he had always been upset that he was the one falling behind, but if he could protect Levy, the woman he fell for, then nothing else mattered.
With this determination, Gajeel consumed Bradman's anti magic particle allowing him to achieve Dragon Force which he used to fight against the shield of spriggan overwhelming the latter until defeating him. Once Bradman was defeated, Levy and Gajeel congratulated each other until Bradman decided to drag Gajeel with him to the underworld. When Levy tried to intervene, Gajeel tried to stop her by pinning her to a rock until Levy broke free however, Panther Lily stopped her.
As he was being pulled into the underworld, Gajeel spoke with Levy and stated all he wanted was to walk beside her forever as she was the one person who got him to think of the future and other things such as a family. Gajeel bids Levy farewell while telling Lily to take her back to the guild hall for him. Gajeel was then consumed as Levy broke down in tears.
It later turns out that Gajeel was not taken to the underworld but was instead transported to Tenrou Island due to another Spriggan using her magic to shift all of Fiore landmarks and its people as mentioned by Zera. This news shocked Gajeel who blushed as he remembered what he told Levy when he thought he was going to die.
Later on, as Zera telepathically speaks to the mages of Fairy Tail telling them to head to the guild. However, some members express distrust towards her that is until Gajeel speaks causing them to realize she's an ally with that they head for the guild. Levy overhearing Gajeel's voice, sheds tears as she realizes he's still alive and is only able to say his name in relief.
Later on, while fighting the Alvarez Army Gajeel saves Jet and Droy as Levy calls his name and Gajeel looks at her speechless before she kicks him in the face. Levy insults Gajeel for making her worry but calms down and reminds him of his previous promise to take her back to the guild as Gajeel states he will do that when the enemies are taken down. Watching this, Zera remarks that youth is a very strange thing.
After the defeat and death of Acnologia, Lucy wins the best author award and they have a celebration party where the fairy tail members attended. Lucy points out that Levy and Gajeel have grown closer and at the party Levy calls to Gajeel and whispers something to his ear, which makes him blush.
Lucy thought she heard Levy whisper "baby" to his ear and looks over to see Wendy blushing and comments that Wendy has better hearing and heard what she had said. Later on Panther Lily asks Levy's teammates if they have seen Levy and Gajeel who appear to be gone from the party to be alone.

Fairies' Penalty GameEdit
After a competition was made between the two Fairy Tail teams, Gajeel tells Laxus he better win for them. Having won the game, Gajeel claims Lucy as his prize and made her, along with Levy, put on bunny suits as they dance by him while he sings and plays the guitar. Levy begins to question how she got herself into that situation. Levy's eyes stray down to Lucy's bosom, gandering at its buoyancy and is astonished at the contrast between herself and Lucy. After stating how it feels like she is the one who is actually being punished, she runs off in tears, abandoning Gajeel's performance, with Gajeel chasing after her. Lucy, befuddled, thinks that her punishment is over, but Gajeel reassures her that it isn't and tells her that Mirajane will be taking care of her in his absence.
Heading for the Fairy Tail Guild with Gray's gift in tow, Juvia glances towards Gajeel and Levy, whom she sees them in a tight embrace and kissing.

The Exciting Ryuzetsu LandEdit
On the third night of the Grand Magic Games, Levy is the one to suggest that the guild take a beak at the popular resort known as Ryuzetsu Land, to which the agreement is unanimous. Upon arriving, Levy hears Happy telling Carla and Lily he wants to visit the aquarium. Levy tells Gajeel that she wants to see it too, but Gajeel angrily replies that he has no place there, which results in an awkward moment between the two. Gajeel tags along anyway, and puts his head inside a hole that makes him look like he has the body of a fish, much to the amusement of Levy and Carla.
Later, Gajeel admires the fish in the aquarium at first, but acts indifferent when Levy looks amazed by the spectacle until Happy, having overheard the conversation of the workers, volunteers to assist them in feeding the fish by taking part in a show of the aquarium. Gajeel immediately regrets it once the task begins, despite Levy teasing him about secretly enjoying it. Although he fears that Happy will eat all the fish, ironically, some bigger and more aggressive ones appear and try to eat the Exceeds instead. After trying to get away from the fish seems futile, Gajeel tells Levy to stand back and attacks the fish one by one, knocking them down. However, this triggers the "boss" of the aquarium to appear, which is a fish much bigger than the others, which sucks all the Fairy Tail Mages into a vortex and swallows them.
Some time later, Gajeel and Levy somehow escape, but soon after Natsu comes flying towards their direction, riding the sign of the Love Love Slide, which sends them both on the attraction together. As she is holding onto Gajeel, Levy notes that things have gone out of hand. As she asks Gajeel how he feels, he protectively tells Levy to stay in his arms and then makes his grip stronger, which Levy misinterprets, as he is in fact only trying to hold onto something because he is motion sick and wants to puke. Soon, the actions of Lyon and Gray cause the entire resort to be frozen in ice, which Natsu angrily takes care of by destroying it along with the entire park, leaving Gajeel unconscious on top of Levy with the others.
