Hpefuly this helps you a little bit

This FAQ is basically a listing of all the matches available in the Olympus Coliseum 
(Hercules world).
I've also listed the spoils acquired from certain matches.
	There's 4 modes for each Cup. The first being the basic tournament (going 
through 10 or more enemies
until you are the victor). The second is going through the same Cup by yourself 
(Sora). The third is
going through that Cup timed. You normally have 3 minutes to do so. The fourth mode 
is when you are given
the choice to face whomever you like in that Cup. Each mode is unlocked for that Cup 
in order. Meaning: If
you win the Phil Cup, the second mode is unlocked (solo). Finish the solo mode in 
the Phil Cup and you
unlock the Time Trial, and so on. Note that you have to unlock all modes each time 
for each cup (if you
unlock all modes for the Phil Cup, that doesn't mean all modes are unlocked for all 
the Cups. That is most
certainly not the case).
	Now, to the tournament listings:

Leon & Yuffie Strategy:
	There is no doubt you will have trouble with this duo. It took me about 5 
tries to finally take them down.
Anyway, your primary target when you begin the battle is Yuffie. Do not worry about 
Leon for he normally walks
 to you. You've got plenty of time to smack Yuffie around a bit before Squall gets 
to you. When he does, just
run or roll out of the way. You HAVE to focus on just Yuffie for now. The standard 
strategy for Yuffie is just move
in and attack mercilessly (sp?). She'll stard flipping backwards and away from you 
in time to throw a shuriken at
you. When this happens, you have 3 options:
1. Dodge it
2. Deflect it by attacking it
3. Deflect it by blocking
	If you successfully deflect 3 shurikens back at her, she'll be knocked out 
for a little bit, allowing you to
beat on her for a little bit.
	So, when Yuffie gets close to dying, she'll power up and unleash a homing 
shuriken. This shuriken
hunts you down for about 5 or so turns. It comes to you and if it hits you or misses 
you, it'll come back in a few
seconds. Keep moving to dodge it. Just make sure not to accidentally run into Leon 
or you'll be sorry. Smack
around Yuffie some more when the homing shuriken dissappears and she'll be down for 
the count in no time.
Keep in mind that you cannot deflect THIS shuriken back at Yuffie.
	Okay, 1 down... 1 to go. Leon's a total badass. He'll kick your ass in a 
second if you mess up. Make
sure not to mess up. ;) Anyway, deflect Leon's standard attacks with either a block 
or an attack (preferrably a
block, but I'm not sure if you've acquired it yet). If you successfully deflect an 
attack, you'll see a message in
mid-air stating "Tech: #p" (you've gained a few experience for deflecting an attack) 
and you'll also notice Leon
stagger a bit. This is your que to kick his ass around until you finish your combo. 
Continue doing so until his
health is low.
	When this happens, Leon also powers up. For Leon, however, his sword grows 
into a magical Lionhart
which, at this point of the game, deals quite a bit of damage. Make sure your health 
is full before running at
Leon. This time, you cannot deflect even his standard attacks. Just jump up and down 
and smack him upside
the head until he's dead. It's easier said than done, however.
	Good luck.

Time Trial Spoils: Item "Strength Up"

Cloud Strategy:
	As if he wasn't hard enough the first time, the beefed up Cloud once again 
takes you on. Boh. Cloud's
attacks (at first) consist of standard attacks (short-range melee attacks) and 
an "impaling" attack (before he
does this move, he jumps away from you and proceeds to yell before he does it). When 
it comes to the
standard attacks, use the same strategy as Leon. Just deflect it and proceed to beat 
him up. When it comes to
the impaling attack, however.... there's nothing you can do at this point of the 
game. You're more than likely
 not strong enough to deflect it yet, so just keep dodging it. But if you feel you 
are, go for it.
	Anyway, when Cloud's health gets low he usually unleashes his super attack 
where he flies around on
his one wing hacking at you. This move is VERY hard to dodge, so just try to BLOCK 
it (un-deflectable). Before
he unleashes the attack he states "Farewell", so watch out for that. Once he's done 
with the One-Winged
Angel, he'll be the same 'ol Cloud. Kick his ass. :)

Hercules Strategy:
	Ask me and I'll tell you Nomura should have made Cloud the final boss for 
this Cup and named it the
Cloud Cup. :p Yes, Hercules is THAT easy. Anyway, when Hercules is glowing yellow: 
he's invulnerable. If
you're locked on (you should be), press L2 until you're locked onto one of the 
barrels that materialize before
your eyes. run up to it and choose to lift it. Lock on once again to Herc and wait 
for him to show off (he
always says "Give up yet?"). This is your que to throw the barrel at him. His yellow 
aura will be gone, which
gives you time to smack him around. He usually fights back but it's usually not 
enough to take you at in one
	When he spins around just glide around. He won't be able to hit you. Also, 
when he runs low on
energy he unleashes a sort of super attack every once in a while where he creates a 
shell around him that
hurts you. It don't hurt you that much, so don't worry. In time, he'll be down for 
the count. A pushover,
at most.

Hades Cup Note: This Cup consist of 49 Seeds. This is cake at first, but gets harder 
after each Seed... you'll see.
After progressing through 10 Seeds, you are allowed to continue from that point if 
you lose. Meaning: If you
get up to the 39th Seed and lose, you can continue from the 40th seed. Understand? 
Good. :)

1st Seed:		Rock Titan		Rock Titan

Standard Spoils: Ability "Trinity Limit"
Solo Spoils: Staff/Wand "Save the Queen"
Time Trial Spoils: Shield "Save the King"

Yuffie Strategy:
	Same Yuffie as before. Only this time she usually throws 3 standard shuriken 
at once. Other than
that and the fact that she's a bit stronger: same strategy as above applies.

Cloud & Leon Strategy:
	Ouch. This is one hard battle. It took me about 8 tries to finally take 
these guys down. Yes, they're
THAT tough when together. Okay, this time around: attack and finish off Leon first. 
But before you do that,
lure Donald and Goofy to Cloud so they can keep him occupied while you deal with 
Leon. The same exact
strategy applies for Leon as stated above. Nothing new in his arsenal, despite the 
fact that he's much
	Cloud is also the same as he was the last time you fought except, as 
everyone else, is much stronger
than last time. The same strategy applies. Just be conservative and run away when 
you're in trouble. :)

Hades Strategy:
	So now you know where Hades was all this time. :) Waiting to get his ass 
kicked by you!!! :p
	Anyway, this battle is surprisingly tough. It'll more than likely take you a 
few tries to take him down
(3 for me). Trial and Error, people. At first, you CAN attack Hades as much as you 
want but it won't hurt him.
That doesn't mean it won't affect him. :) He has a sort of invisible "shield" where, 
if enough damage is
applied, it'll "break" and he'll start to take damage. There really is no indication 
of this, but I just know from
experience. Hades starts by floating around and spewing flames out of his hands. 
He's very slow so just run
away from him. In time, he'll run out of juice so just kick it to him until he 
starts his next wave of that attack.
	In time, he'll turn red and go to the middle of the arena. This part is very 
tough. First, make sure
you're not as his SIDES but either in front or behind him (try to be close to him, 
too). He'll raise his arms and
shoot powerful flames from his arms. This attack lasts about 10 seconds. Think 
that's nothing? Think again.
This attack is the SOLE reason I lost to him 3 times. The reason for being close to 
him is to dodge roll in the
direction he's going (he turns, btw). If you're farther away, the flames will 
eventually catch up to you. If
you're closer, you'll be going just as fast as the flames, really. Just makes sure 
to mash on Square like there's
no tomorrow. Eventually he'll turn blue again, so just smack him around.
	Just repeat and he'll be down for the count in no time.

Rock Titan Strategy:
	Why? Why is this pushover the final boss of the Coliseum and Hades at the 
10th seed?? WHY?!
	This battle is SOOOOOOOOOO easy. Just hack at his feet for a while until he 
falls. Climb up on his
body and hack at the head of your choice. Eventually, damage will start being taken 
out (another invisible
shield scenario). The only thing to be afraid of in this battle is an extremely 
lethal foot stomp that happens
every once in a while. It never happened to me the first time I fought him, but I 
can't seem to remember if
there's any indication that it's coming. Other than that, this battle is so easy. 
Continue hacking at his feet
until he falls, and hack at his head. They might as well just give you the damned 

Gold Match: Ice Titan
This match is unlocked after completion of the Hades Cup. It's the first "???" after 
Hades Cup at the menu.

	This match may seem extremely hard at first. Impossible, even. But it's 
actually very easy, and
happens to be the very best place to level up later in the game (more on that in a 
	The general premise of this match is to reflect the icicles the Titan SHOOTS 
at you (not the ones
that come out of the ground). I suggest you stay around a corner in the Coliseum for 
this match. In time,
the screen will flash and you are given a chance to hack at his head to inflict 
critical damage. He WILL get
up in time, however. It is then when he starts to use new moves onyou. One is when 
giant snowballs appear
over your head and fall down above you, 3 at a time. Just keep moving to dodge this 
	After another flash, he'll acquire another move: an Ice Storm (sorta). If 
you're in the corner like I told
you to be, it won't hit. If it does somehow hit you, you're too close so go to 
another corner. Continue with
the standard strategy (moving around a little, deflecting every chance you get) and 
he'll be down for the
count in no time. You are now 5000p+ richer. :)

Note: This is THE greatest place to level up in the game. Each icicle blocked gives 
you 27p, and the average
player deflects 100 or more icicles a match. If you want even more xp a match, try 
killing him using only his
icicles. This will more than likely give you about 4000p in icicles alone, and when 
you kill him you get 5000p.
That's 9000p from one battle. Good deal or what? :)


Platinum Match
Note: Make sure all your item slots are "occupied" by Elixirs. Yes, all of them. 
Also, make sure to have the
Ability "Second Chance" equipped.
	This is the original "???" option at the Cup selection menu (before you 
complete the Hades Cup
and unlock the Gold Match). This match is the toughest battle in the game. According 
to PSM, when they
called up Square for help, the man responded with "Well, are you level 100 yet?". Is 
that crazy or what?
Well, truth is: if you took all the Strength/Defense/AP Ups for yourself you should 
be ready for this boss
at about level 85. If I can do it, you can, too. :)
	No spoilers here, btw. You'll be pleasantly surprised to see who it is. 
Anyway, this boss has
very long reach and is relatively quick to boot. It's a tough battle, I tell you. 
Always approach the boss
by jumping/gliding. Never walk up to him and attack. It's suicide. At first, the 
boss doesn't take any
damage (yet another invisible shield scenario) but eventually will. The boss also 
unleashes a fire pillar attack
if you stay close to him too much. Once the boss's energy is taken downto the orange 
level, he comes out
with a new move called "Sin Harvest" (it's actually a one hit kill, but since you 
have second chance equipped,
that won't be happening any time soon :p). If you see the boss at a corner casting a 
spell, and also see a halo
appear over your head: USE AN ELIXIR, QUICK!!!!  He'll come running to you very 
fast. If you don't work
fast enough, you're a goner. Anyway, continue using this strategy until about the 
green level of his health.
	When this happens, he'll power up and be surrounded by a blue aura. Don't go 
around looking for
barrels, though. Unlike Herc, this does not mean he's invulnurable.This just means 
he's stronger than before,
and now has even more magical abilites. He'll cast Meteor and the like, so be very 
careful. I haven't had any
success dodging meteors, so Good Luck to you. But, that didn't stop me from winning 
in the end.
When you get a chance, smack him around. In time, he'll go down... again. This time, 
for good.... I hope.

This is a good strategy for this boss submitted by "wrexsoul":
"Some more precise tips for the boss' first form.

- He will only use his fire pillar offensively after his 4-5 strike.
- He will immediately teleport counter if comboed for 4 hits. If comboed
for less, he will do the firepillar counter.
- When he uses fire pillar or teleport it will reset his strike count.

He has three types of strikes.

1.) Stands still, circular strike
2.) Lunges and strikes in the air, lands, jumps back a little behind his
original position.
3.) Hops forward, and does a standing still circular strike.

Strike #2 is the most dangerous, but he cannot hit you if you are near his
left shoulder.

The boss will pause very briefly and be stunnable any strike he does
(excepting when his strike counter is 4 or above)

To fight him, walk towards him, and jump at him when you are at the edge of
his attack radius.  He will do one of those three strikes.
If he does #1 combo him when you land

If he jumps and strikes at you, veer towards his left shoulder, and run
forward when you land.  He should jump back near to you, and you can then
combo him.

Strike three must be comboed after he lands and does a circular slash
similar to strike #1.

If you are trapped in the middle of the firepillar attack, it will hit you
twice, making it the only thing that he can KO you with if you have second
chance equipped.

So basically, staying away from him on his 4+ strike and making sure to
complete your combos is the way to get through his first form."

Note: You CAN stop Sin Harvest from being cast. When you hear him say "Sin Harvest" 
and see him casting
it, Superglide to him and interrupt him (attack him). That's one less elixir to 
use. :)
Note2: Despite the fact that you get 18000p from this guy, this is NOT a good place 
to gain levels. It's not worth
1 or more elixirs a match just to level up. Trust me.
Note2: People have been e-mailing me saying this IS a good place to level up. Do 
what you want, but if you
run out of elixirs... don't say I didn't warn you.
Note3: According to various readers, Ars Arcanum works very well against this boss.
Note4: According to various readers, my "Invisible Shield" theory is false. What's 
actually happening is that
there are more HP bars than Square decided to put in (you know... Boss HP bar goes 
Still, I think my "Invisible Shield" thing fit well... or something. ^^;
