The Battle Square battle is rather lengthy and tough, and requires preparation in order to stand a chance to win. Make sure to select the least fearsome handicaps, as this is vital to your success.

Go to the Gold Saucer and enter the Battle Square. Here, walk up the stairs and go to the right to Dio's Show Room. The Green Orb is the Keystone. Dio comes in, and flexes his muscles.. he will let you have it if you fight in the battle arena for him. If you manage to beat all 8 battles, you also receive the Protect Vest and Choco Feather. Your best bet of winning is to put Cloud in the back row, give him a Counter Attack materia, the best armor and sword you've got, limit break ready, Enemy Skill Materia, and a stock of good healing items, and hard-hitting items like Right Arm, Bird Wing (from Tornadu's on the beach near Bone Village), Dragon Scales and the like. Equipping the Adaman Bangle on Cloud may also help you. It'll be rather tricky and it may require a few resets if you're really going for the extra prizes. Either way, when you've got the Keystone, attempt to exit the Gold Saucer..oh noes! Looks like you're stuck.

After the scenes you'll get a visit from either Aeris, Tifa, Yuffie or Barret.  Yes, any of them can come to your room, although Aeris is the easiest. You'll go on a date of some sorts, with many scenes. It's a great deal of fun, so enjoy it. Note: If you want(ed) to alter the outcome of the date I advise you to check out section {M1.6}, which has the mechanics of how to get whom.

After the date, you'll spot Cait Sith.. with.. what the hell!?! Quickly follow him in the Battle Square, then Speed Square, Wonder Square and lastly Chocobo Square. After the scene you at least know who the darn spy was. When you can control Cloud again, check the cabinet for an Elixir. Head down and watch the scene. From now Aeris is coming with you for sure, so select one other party member and you're off to the Temple of the Ancients, which is east of the Gold Saucer, according to our spy. (I would've burnt his stuffed body)

(Fort Condor Note 10:)
Yep, now that you've gotten the Keystone, it's time to do another battle here.
Your reward for the 9th battle will be three Turbo Ethers again.
