Hades Cup

This is where it gets tough… you have to fight 49 battles. But fortunately you don’t have to start from the very beginning if you lose. Having the MP Haste and MP Rage abilities here should help a lot. Make sure to have a good stock of Potions/Hi-Potions and Ethers in your item inventory before you begin.

1st Seed Rock Titan Rock Titan



She shouldn’t be so hard. The only thing you have to watch out for is the large shuriken that she throws at you, since you can deflect the smaller ones if you get the timing right. Now with that in mind just cast Aero on yourself and attack. You’ll receive the Genji Sheild if you win.


Cast Aero on yourself first then make your way on top of him by climbing on his back and attack from there. When his horn begins to gather energy, he’s about to unleash a lightning attack so watch out for that. Simply heal once you take serious damage and you shouldn’t have that much of a problem beating him. You’ll also get the Blizzaga upgrade if you win.


Geez! It’s him again. Having an armor that reduces fire damage really helps here. Try to get on top of him as much as possible and attack from there. Otherwise, just get to the side and attack the head that’s closest to the ground. Thankfully you have Aero or even Aerora now so his bite shouldn’t be as deadly as before, but still watch out. Avoid his fire balls and jump or Dodge Roll from the black stuff. Just heal whenever you take serious damage and you’ll be fine. You’ll receive the Thundaga upgrade if you win.

Cloud & Leon

Argh! Who the heck decided to put these two together in one battle? Anyway, Cloud has the lesser HP of the 2 (one and a half bars), while Leon has 3 bars. Make sure you focus on only one target at a time. Now cast Aero on yourself and get rid of Cloud first — attack him head on as much as possible, Glide or Dodge Roll from his dash attack. Run around and Dodge Roll a lot when he starts flying around. Always keep an eye on Leon though. As for Leon, the same rule still applies — avoid his trigger attacks, his glowing gunblade, and his fire spells. Dogde Roll towards him and attack when you get close enough. You’ll receive the Lionheart key chain if you win.


Another hard battle. It is highly recommended that you have the MP Rage and MP Haste abilities here as you will definitely need your MP. Now cast Aero on yourself then attack. Avoid his flames at all cost, it can take off almost half your current HP even with Aero. He’s most vulnerable once he reverts to his original color, (purple) so if you’re gonna hurt him that’s the best time to do so. Also don’t hesitate to use any of your special abilities on him, such as Ars Arcanum or Strike Raid. You’ll receive the Graviga upgrade along with the Ansem Report 8 once you beat him.

Rock Titan

He’s surprisingly easy. Just lock on to either foot and attack. Don’t be careless enough to let him step on you though. You should be able to beat him without problems.
