Mysterious Enemy/Dusk World: Twilight Town HP: N/A NOTE: Cannot be defeated with your Struggle weapon. Strategy: Always keep it locked on. Attack it with your weapon until you get to wield the Keyblade. Use the reversal reaction-command to get behind it and get a few hits in. After you get the Keyblade this battle is very easy. Keep using reaction commands to get behind it and hit it in the back until it is defeated. Twilight Thorn World: Serenity Station HP: 300 NOTE: Watch for Reaction Commands, always keep a finger near the triangle button. Strategy: Right when you start Roxas is suspended in mid-air. Watch for the reaction commands to injure the enemy and escape. Run to where the monster fell off and the platform will tip. Use a reaction-command to deflect its attack and get back up on the platform. The monster is stunned so lock-on and attack his head with all you got. You can dodge his electric wave type attack by using the reversal reaction-command repeatedly until it stops. When it shoves its arms into the ground attack his head. Ignore the enemies unless they are really giving you trouble. Repeat this until you win. And remember to keep a finger near the triangle button for reaction commands! Axel World: Twilight Town HP: 105 NOTE: This is the first battle with Axel Strategy: Before you even start you should equip the guard ability. Axel likes to attack head on. When he kneels down lock-on and attack him. But when he starts moving back away because this is one of his most powerful attacks. Whenever he drops one of his ring weapons unleash a full combo on him but when he starts to light on fire back away because it is a ery powerful attack. Another way to hit him is to circle around him and attack him in the back after he attacks because he likes to attack head on. If you do this you will win the battle. Axel World: Twilight Town HP: 345 NOTE: Axel is a lot stronger and has a lot more hp than last time you battled. Strategy: One thing to make up for Axel's high hp is that now you have two keyblades, Oblivion and Oathkeeper. Always avoid him when he's surrounded by fire. Whenever he jumps out of the ring of fire lock- on to him and wait for him to dive back in so you can use the reaction command to knock him out for a second or two and attack him. Keep doing this until you win. The key is the reaction commands. Shan-Yu World: The Land of Dragons HP: 442 NOTE: His falcon can also attack. Strategy: The minute the battle begins you want to change into Valor Form. Attack Shan-Yu in Valor Form to inflict a lot of damage. When the rest of the heartless show up watch the gate health. If it gets low attack the heartless and get the orbs to replenish its health. Also use Mulan's limit ability on Shan-Yu and the heartless. When he glows with dark energy back away this is one of his strongest attacks. You can grapple with him using a reaction command. Constantly hit triangle during the grapple to win and inflict lots of damage to him. Do this and you're sure to win. Thresholder and Possessor World: Beast's Castle HP: 137 NOTE: Must defeat Thresholder ot be able to attack Possessor Strategy: When you approach the door two Gargoyles attack you. Move to the back of the room and defeat them so Thresholder's hands cannot reach you. Approach it again and a swarm of Hookbats will attack you. Again move to the back of the room out of reach and defeat them. After that when you approach him more Hookbats spawn. Do the same to these. After that approach the thresholder from the side so his hands won't hit you. Lock-on and attack. When the door's health is depleted use the reaction command to make the Possessor come out. Lock-on and attack him. After a little while the Possessor will go back in the door. Repeat the process until you win. The Beast World: Beast's Castle HP: 156 NOTE: None Strategy: When you start the battle go over to cogsworth and use his Wake-up reaction command to stun Beast. You can then unload a combo on him before he fights again. Keep doing this with Cogsworth until Beast is beaten. Cogsworth can only do the Wake-up reaction spell 4-5 times each charge. If he runs out go over ot him and use the Charge reaction command. Repeat this over and over and you'll win. Shadow Stalker World: Beast's Castle HP: 176 NOTE: Shadow Stalker is only the first form Strategy: Shadow Stalker attacks by taking over objects. There are 3 ways it likes to attack: 1. Taking over the chandelier and shooting electric beams across the room. 2. Taking over the pillars and clawing you. 3. This is the worst: It goes into the window so that its face is projected on them and shoots a huge beam of electricity down the middle of the room. How to Dodge: 1. Move into and behind the pillars. 2. move to the center of the room and have Beast and Goofy do all the work on the pillar. 3. Move into the pillar area. Whenever the Shadow Stalker comes out lock-on and attack with all you have. Beast's limit ability helps a lot. If you dodge the attacks and attack the Shadow Stalker a lot you'll be sure to win. Dark Thorn World: Beast's Castle HP: 390 NOTE: True form of the Shadow Stalker Strategy: Dark Thorn is more of a melee attacker. He also uses the chandelier to attack. One good thing in this battle is that you can use the chandelier too. Go over near the chandelier and a reaction command will pop up. It is a 3 step reaction command set so wathc out for them. Always stay locked-on so you know where it is when it turns invisible. Use Beast's limit and Valor form whenever possible. So reminder: Always stay locked on, use Valor form and Beast's limit whenever possible, and use the chandelier whenever possible. If you do all this you will win for sure. Cerberus World: Olympus Coliseum HP: 440 NOTE: Has 3 heads so watch out. Strategy: In this battle you don't have Donald or Goofy to help you out. But, you do have Auron. In this battle Cerberus doesn't walk around. Instead he leaps to a different place after a couple minutes. A good time to use Auron's limit ability is after Cerberus leaps. It inflicts a lot of damage to Cerberus. Lock-on to the middle head if you can and unleash combos on it. At some points the 2 outer heads will pin you infront of the middle head. Use reaction commads to deflect, damage, and knock Cerberus out for a couple seconds. When he's knocked out empty combos into the heads. Do this and you should win. Demyx World: Olympus Coliseum HP: N/A NOTE: You don't actually fight him you have to defeat all his clones in the time limit. Strategy: The training courses Phil put you through should have prepared you for this battle. In this battle you have to defeat 100 of Demyx's clones in 80 seconds. The Wild Dance reaction command comes in handy. Use this a lot! If you can't use wild dance just attack them with the keyblade but if you see the wild dance reaction command come up use it. Overall Demyx is pretty easy to beat. Pete World: Olympus Coliseum HP: 264 NOTE: Always stay near Megara to protect her! Strategy: This is a 2 part battle. In the first part you have to protect Megara from Pete and his Heartless. First, take out all of the heartless but throw a few hits Pete's way to keep him distracted. After all the heartless are gone its time ot deal with Pete. Use the Pinball reaction command whenever it pops up to inflict a lot of damage. After a while Hercules comes and helps out. This time you don't need to protect Megara. Whenever Pinball reaction command comes up try to send him flying towards Hercules to inflict more damage. Any time Pete has a giant boulder over his head go over to Hercules and make and Aura Guard. Keep doing this and Pete will lose. Hydra World: Olympus Coliseum HP: 462 NOTE: This battle is sort of a 3 parter. Strategy: In the first part the Hydra only has 1 head. Lock-on and whenever his head is near the ground unleash combos. When its done use the Vanquish reaction command to finish off its first form. Next, the Hydra gets 5 heads. Again whenever the heads come near the ground unleash combos. You cna also use a reaction command with Pegasus where you fly up and attack the heads. When its HP is gone use the Vanquish reaction command again. Now 3 heads will come out of the ground. Jump on the Hydra's back and use the Phil one-two reaction command to stun them. Go down and attack the heads. When their HP is gone use the Vanquish reaction command on them to finish them off for good. If you don't kill all 3 heads before it wakes up you have to repeat the process.
