Depends on how things go I don't see gray fighting Natsu just because he is e.n.d even if he promised his dad he would. There has to be a reasoning behind them fighting now that we know natsu is e.n.d, and they happen to also be really good friends.
If it is END, it will probably be a whole different story. Either END and Gray will cancel each other out and make it a draw or Gray has a chance of losing depending on how strong END is.
It's hard for me to judge cuz idk what END is like but this event should actually be happening soon, within the next few arcs.
I'm looking forward to it and I don't think that the fight can be avoided. If END still has Natsu's personality in him it is possible that Gray will call it off.
If END is indeed a full evil demon like Deliora was, I highly doubt Gray would let that pass. He's suffered enough to know to not let such a powerful demon be in the loose.
Unlike most people, I think Gray will not kill END (if he has to) because he wants to do it for his father's sake. It would be for the sake of the innocent. Him fulfilling his father's last wishes is just a way for him to prepares and motivate himself to do so.
The end choice will be Gray's decision and Gray's alone. But if it were Natsu and Gray, eventually, right before a END, I think Gray will have surpassed Natsu.
I agree with @ahmadrizqik and @MangerDan. Natsu and Gray fighting to the death probably won't happen, even though Gray wants to kill E.N.D. But if they were to fight, and E.N.D powers aside here, Natsu would win. He has Lightning-Flame Dragon Mode and Dragon Force at his disposal, where Gray has Devil-Slaying Magic as his power-up. I don't see Gray's Devil-Slaying Magic being able to even take on Lightning-Flame Dragon Mode, let alone Dragon Force.
Yeah, except Tartaros Natsu couldnt melt Ice Devil Slaying Ice. In order for Natsu to win or at least tie, he needs to at least bypass that obstacle and melt his opponent's magic.
Ice Devil Slaying Ice can insta-freeze flames, but Natsu's flame couldn't melt the ice. This is a one-sided fight if you ask me. This is pretty much no contest....
In order for me to be able to speculate the outcome of the battle, I probably need more information on the battle. If it were me, I would post this discussion in the sub-forum, Domus Flau, so more details would be provided on the fight. For example, naming restrictions, distance, place, and other factors will easily influence the battle.
If it were Natsu vs. Gray, Gray could easily cancel the fight with Iced Shell or use Insta-Freeze to make Natsu frozen.
However, if it were E.N.D. vs. Gray, Etherious Natsu Dragneel could probably defeat Gray with no contest, in my opinion.
Look at Natsu and Gray's confrontation in the Avatar base. Neither were being serious, and when Gray tried to freeze the general area around Natsu, Natsu easily blew the ice away. Its not hard to see DeS Gray wouldn't be as strong as Silver, and even with his training, he can't match Natsu's Lightning-Flame Dragon Mode and Dragon Force.
Dude, you seem to forget that Gray didn't even put in half his effort in Avatar. You can't even use it as an example. Even if Gray did use his Ice Devil Slaying in Avatar, Gray pretty much shattered that ice on purpose by himself, not Natsu's attacks.
Gray was going undercover, he wasn't gonna pierce a blade of ice through Natsu's heart. You also seem to forget that Avatar Natsu was after he had his 1 year training.
Look back in your quote of my text, note I said Tartaros Natsu and not after 1 year timeskip Natsu.
I don't know what you mean by Silver had years of mastery. That has nothing to do with it.
One, the ice not melting by Natsu's flame is part of the Ice Devil Slaying Ice's properties, it has nothing to do with user.
Second, Gray insta-frozen Tempesta's whirlwinds when Tempesta was in his Etherious form. Something that Natsu couldn't do in his tag team with Gajeel. And don't even think about using the excuse of demon slaying magic on this one. Gray froze the whirlwinds not Tempests himself. Gray knocked out Tenpesta afterwards.

However, I do feel like you are underestimating Natsu here. Just because Silver froze Natsu doesn't mean Gray can. Sure, they've both had a year to train, but who has done more training? Natsu was in the mountains for nearly the whole year, training whereas Gray spent 6 months working with Juvia as well as the odd spot of training before he spent 6 months undercover in Avatar. Training aside, Devil Slaying Magic as far as we know hasn't got Devil Force or a Devil Drive form like the Dragon Slayers, so I fail to see how Gray's magic can match up to Dragon Force or Lightning-Flame Dragon. Sure, the magic is effective against Devils, but anything else and it isn't as effective.

That will never happen, even if comes close to that Gray will return favor to Natsu just like he did against Deliora.
After time skip Natsu is probably a lot stronger then Gray. Now, he can probably melt new devil ice made by Gray.
All I've read so far is a bunch of character overstimation, and it's clear favorites have some influence on actual facts from the manga. Being perceived differently to make one character seem better then the other.
If Natsu is END... then it possible. i mean, when Gray got the ice devil slayer magic from his dad, he promised to use it for destroying END. But Natsu and Gray are still best friends... its hard to believe that Gray won`t try to save Natsu from END. but im sure that they`ll fight.
