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

Added 24th Jul 2015, ID #588852

i don't think its broken first press the L button then the y button it worked for me hope it works for you

Added 26th Aug 2013, ID #306914

Actually, Cloud's in the upper LEFT corner
A lot of game guides mix up right and left

Added 11th Aug 2013, ID #304152

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.

Added 25th May 2013, ID #285224

I finished the game...I couldn't get the Oathkeeper keyblade cuz hell it's hard to beat Roxas, and now I found out I need to get the star rank. But I went back to the Coliseum, how do i get to the layers after 15?

Added 10th May 2013, ID #281667

Go to the coliseum and do story replay

Added 25th Oct 2015, ID #619618

ARGGGGGGG. Cloud is SO hard!!! Out of all the levels I hate this one the most. He does Omnislash like very frickin' move.

Added 10th May 2013, ID #281652

use the licenses and if you have a hard time changing to them first hold down the L button then press the Y button or the arrow pad.

Added 24th Feb 2013, ID #258265

Can somebody please tell me how to defeat cloud? I keep getting stuck on his battle, and i lose every time and not even half of his health is gone. Can some one please give me a good cheat or a something to help me get rid of this guy?

Added 22nd Jan 2013, ID #245474

the bosses are all very easy becouse you can use as many support items the first turn as you want so i just used auto-block, charge, etc then the second turn i 1HKO everyone, Hades, Clous only CERBERUS wasn't death in 1 hit but cloud and herc killed him in there moves

Added 10th Nov 2012, ID #207197

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

Added 14th Jun 2012, ID #152637

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?

Added 10th Apr 2012, ID #131911

How do you cast cura

Added 16th Mar 2012, ID #123415

i used the defense-L, stregth-L, and auto block-L then i used fira, heat dash, and cure but i still died.

Added 29th Dec 2011, ID #100146

Does any one know where to get the wristbands for Phil? I can't seem to find the digital sector with them....

Added 16th Dec 2011, ID #95501

You have to beat one of the bosses and they are awarded to you

Added 25th Oct 2015, ID #619619

@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.

Added 1st Dec 2011, ID #91856

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.

Added 23rd Oct 2011, ID #82492

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

Added 25th Oct 2015, ID #619623

I can't get to the license command during the cloud battle how do I do it?

Added 29th Aug 2011, ID #71103

Where do I get cura???

Added 18th Aug 2011, ID #68237

What is the boss after Hades? I mean, I'm trying 15 layers now.

Added 13th Jul 2011, ID #57595

It is the rock Titan.

Added 25th Oct 2015, ID #619616

yeah, you just have to restart the whole world. so you have to do replay episode

Added 4th Jul 2011, ID #54683

I have gone into the cerberus/hades battle without getting cloud. Can I go back?

Added 17th Jun 2011, ID #49973

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.

Added 10th May 2011, ID #42347

I didn't get cloud!!! I only have Hercules and I'm stuck.How do I beat cerberus?!?

Added 26th Mar 2011, ID #34325

has anyone figured out how to have the commands and the license

Added 26th Mar 2011, ID #34259

[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

Added 19th Mar 2011, ID #33237

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.

Added 16th Mar 2011, ID #32894

Added 20th Feb 2011, ID #29790

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]
