I can also see an upset where Levy gets chosen as the S-Class mage though I doubt it'll happen like that.
It would be funny if either gray or natsu did become s-class. Imagine how insane the rivalry would get then.
I predict after this is all over, half of the island gets blown up in an epic battle. Makarov comes in and sees the destruction, and is all like "what only half the island got destroyed? I expected better from you guys
. Clearly your all still pussies. Nobody gets promoted after all."
When asked (likely by Lucy) why he isn't mad about the destruction of the "sacred island" Makarov just laughs and says the "original" island was destroyed years ago, and that he's had to rebuild the island several times already. He goes on to say "It is here in these competitions, that guild members try their hardest, and demonstrate all they've learned during their time at our guild. This competition bring out their true power, and true self. That is what makes this place sacred." Lucy then asks, "true self?" Makarov replies, yes an mage cannot become great with power alone. It takes kindness and commitment as well. Many made hide their evil away and try to fool others into believing them to be good, but in competitions like these, the reward of becoming S-class is too great, and their true selves come out. Just as it did that time...... (lucy has a puzzled look on her face, while Makarov has a flashback to 30 years ago, when his son took part in this competition.) Makarov goes to the place he last heard explosions, to find his son standing over the corpses of his fallen comrades. "Father, I have won. I have proven myself to be S-class, right? Makarov stands with shock and horror on his face. (flashback ends).
PPS: Lucy can't die she's the main character of the manga lol.
Lucy will die. The guy who kills things will learn how to reverse death, after Natsu trains him (beats the shit out of him) how to do it.
