Was Larcade really ‘created’ to be Zeref’s trump card against Acnologia? Did Zeref really believe the ability to control desire would overwhelm Acnologia and serve as the basis for Acnologia’s defeat? If so, than Zeref severely underestimated Acnologia and overestimated Larcade’s abilities. Sure Larcade has powerful abilities, but to the point of being able to subject Acnologia to his desires? I honestly don’t think so. Larcade would be torn to shreds before he even had a chance to utter anything dealing with souls ascending to heaven. That is just the might of Acnologia. Once Larcade’s abilities are overcome, there isn’t anything else remaining that makes Larcade a terrifying opponent. As such, once Sting overcame Larcade’s R.I.P. ability, he was able to turn the tables and land a striking blow onto Larcade. But if Larcade is defeated here, what did August mean that Larcade can only be defeated by his mother? And when will we get to learn what Larcade is and how he is connected to Zeref, Mavis and Natsu?
