Olympus Coliseum

There is a store between each layer.

Rising Strike -- 400 Munny
Quick Blitz -- 400 Munny
Fire Edge -- 1800 Munny
Thunder Edge -- 1800 Munny
Sliding Dash -- 400 Munny
Heat Dash -- 1800 Munny
Spark Dash -- 1800 Munny
Round Blitz -- 400 Munny
Fire Blast -- 1800 Munny
Thunder Blast -- 1800 Munny
Aerial Sweep -- 400 Munny
Fire -- 800 Munny
Fira -- 1600 Munny
Blizzard -- 800 Munny
Blizzara -- 1600 Munny
Thunder -- 800 Munny
Thundera -- 1600 Munny
Cure -- 800 Munny

Hi-Potion -- 320 Munny
Ether -- 200 Munny
Panacea -- 160 Munny

Head inside to talk to Phil. You'll then be teleported inside the Coliseum and find a SHRED OF WISDOM. While fighting in the Coliseum you lose most of your deck commands and your shortcut commands.

So this area is more like a traditional RPG. You go first, then the eneimes back and forth. You use your commands to make a stack and then use it all at once. It's also important to destroy ALL the bloxes in each room as these effect the strength level of the enemies and hinder your ability to move on to the next room. Hitting A right before you land an attack will let you attack more in one move. You can also hit Y to Block.

Level 1 (yellow) - Normal
Level 2 (red) - Double Strength
Level 3 (Flashing) - Triple Strength

Keep working your way from room to room making sure to use Potions as needed until you get the large top room. Make sure break all the bloxes to get a STRENGTH 1, MAGIC 1, and HP 2. The Warp to the next layer is in the back corner.

In Layer 2 you will be introduced to Licenses. You'll get a few right away, STRENGTH-L, BREAK-L, DEFENSE- L. Then once you win the battle you'll get a SCOUT-L. After clearing out the entire room head back to the first room to meet up with Hercules. He'll join your party and you'll go into a battle. Now that you have Hercules you can use him to break down all the walls in the layer.

When you get to the next mid stage the Moogle will give you some freebies. CHARGE-L, AUTO-BLOCK-L, REGEN-L, and a AUTO-LIFE-L. The next stage includes spinning vortexes that are high level encounters. You want to make sure you attack first and be ready with the Licenses you want as these can be tough encounters where 5 plus Heartless are attacking at once. Use High Jump to get to the bottom right for some good Prizes. Then do the left side followed by the right side. The top section contains a boss battle after clearing the first area.


BOSS: Cloud

This can be a tough battle so using an Auto-Life, Auto-Block and Strength Licenses might be a good idea. Especially considering how long ago you probably saved last. Cloud's big attack is his Omnislash. This attack can hit both of you multiple times. Make sure to time your attacks right for combos and criticals.

Work your way through Layer 4 as you had all the previous layers. You'll find  Cloud in the upper right corner. Then head to the lower left to help him with a fight. Stock up and save and then it's on to the final fights.


BOSS: Cerberus

Cerberus attacks the whole party with Fireballs and can do a triple bit attack that hits the whole party also. Luckily you have Cloud on your team so use Cura and keep the pressure up with damage.


BOSS: Hades

You get no rest between battles so Regen-L and Defense-L can mean the difference between living and dying. Blizzard based attacks do the most damage and be careful of the Fire based attacks that will be coming your way with abundance. Hades will also summon extra Heartless and he is immune to Fire damage so don't bother.

I still lose hp even though I use auto-block and try to block myself. Sometimes I'll see "block:, sometimes see "miss" and it moves the character out of the way. Is going to lose HP no matter what or am I not timing the block properly? Thanks.

Blocking only saves you from some of the damage so yes, you will continue to loose some even with the auto block but it does save you from some of the damage so it's still helpful Smile

I can't change between licenses and powers, in or out of battle. I press L+Y at the same time, but it doesn't do anything except a weird blocking move. I think it's broken.

We had a hard time with this one. Cloud was, well, rather hard. Omnislash is hard to deflect!

I did not know you had to go back and get Cloud to be on your team. Now I have to face Cerberus with only Hercules at my side. Is there any way to go back and get Cloud to join me without having to make a new game and go through it again?

@ID #30833:
It's possible. It just takes a really long time. I didn't see cloud so I had to do it with Sora and Hercules. Just keep blocking and healing and you'll get it eventually.
ID #30509: To get cura just combine cure and slow or cure and stop. Using it in the coliseum will show up as friend cure lvl 2.

I still cannot find a way to restart the world or level to get Cloud for the final battles. I got Cura by working with and combining cure & stop.

At the save point just go to world select then choose a world click world replay on the other world and after you start replaying the world do the same steps but on the coliseum instead

I have gone into the cerberus/hades battle without getting cloud. Can I go back?
ID #49973
May 10th 2011 Guest
To switch between licenses and commands, press L and Y at the same time. To beat Cerberus even without cloud is very easy, just use auto-block license, strength license, regen license (if you have one), and defence license. Then compile some commands to make different attacks. It just might take a little longer without cloud.

[quote][/quote] you can use potions by going to the commands list of attacks and then all the way down you see the items and can press Y to use them

I save up the licenses and they disappear as soon as I fight Cloud, I also can't figure out how to use my potions etc. It says I have them but I don't know how to load them.

The quest items you get by beating the end of layer boss excluding Cerberus and hades. To beat cloud I just got a whole bunch of cure commands and used only them[color=red][/color]
