Chapters: 4-9, Episodes: 3-4
Short SummaryNatsu and Happy form a team with Lucy to retrieve and destroy a book from a corrupt politician.
Daybreak Arc has the following tropes:
- Big Bad: Duke Everlue.
- Gonk: Everlue and the maids under the Duke's employ, including Virgo.
- Keep the Reward: Natsu does this to Lucy's chagrin, since he claims they didn't destroy the book as asked.
- Meido: Lucy dresses up for one briefly for the mission. Likewise, Virgo and the other maids.
- Most Writers Are Writers: Which surprisingly turns out to be a plot point.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Lucy forgets to cover the Fairy Tail mark on her hand, which Everlue sees while interviewing her and tipping him off that she and her team are going to invade his compound.
- Ninja Maid: Once again, Everlue's maids. Not that they last very long against Natsu.
- No Accounting for Taste: Everlue has some weird taste in "beauty".
