Cerberus is actually pretty easy.

Recomended level - 9
Recomended Abilities- Dodge Roll, Scan, Cure
Recommended Weapon- Kingdom Key or greater
Recommended Items- Potion x2 (if you don't have Cure)

Cerberus has four main attacks. I will list them all, with an easy strategy to dodge them.

Fire Ball- Run under Cerberus until this attack stops
Dark Breath- Dodge Roll around the stadium.
Jump- Avoid the shockwave by jumping
Bite- Stand far away

Strategy for attacking
Only attack Cerberus during his Bite Stage. Lock on to one of his side head first, and run to the side of that head (left head, run far left, right head, run far right). Wait until Cerberus bites, then run in, attack the side of Cerberus' head twice, land on the ground, and Dodge Roll back. Repeat until Cerberus lifts his head up. Use the strategies above to dodge every move until Cerberus starts biting again.

To start off make sure you have a lot of healing of HP and MP items equipped to you (donald and goofy sometimes use items from the stock). When the fight starts try and jump onto Cerebus's back and wait for his heads to come up and that is your time to attack, if you fall off just jump back on again. when Cerebus starts biting donald and Goofy let them two do the work. If you need help attacking the heads just press triangle twice to hear donald and Goofy shout your name, they will then come onto the body, if not try, and assist you in attacking.

The easiest way to beat Cerberus is to avoid him, or stand under him until stops walking, and starts biting. Then focus your attacks on one head. Always run when he is breathing the darkness. And stand under him when he is breathing electric balls. Stand on high ground when he stomps.

I would go with what these guys said. The only thing I would recommend would be that when he's crouched down and biting you go to the back of him after a couple of successful hits. Probably right when he slams on the ground. Anyway, with his hind legs spread out, jump on them then, jump on his back. While on his back don't stand on his neck, but stand on the top of his back. Then after he starts biting jump down and reapet everything.
