There are 6 special battles in the Hades Cup. The first one is you battle Yuffie. She's fairly easy, but she heals herself and she sends out a huge ninja thrower thingie, and it spins all around the platform. Also her minor attacks and her quick movements give her some advantage. But you get something special for Goofy if you win this battle: the Genji Shield. Next battle is against another Behemoth. Just jump on it's back, watch it's special attacks like the bolts of lightning, the jumps and leaps it does, and the dark spheres it brings from the air to the ground. Attack it's horn on it's back and you've won. For winning this battle you get your blizzard spell upgraded. The third special boss is Cerberus. You have a better advantage against it, because you can jump higher and you can glide. There are 4 things you have to look out for. One, it shoots out fire meteors at your teammates, so you should lock on, on one of the side heads. Two, it sends a black hole in the front of it's faces, and little dark fountain like stuff comes from the ground, so jump on it's back to evade this attack without running around. Third, it's heads bite your teammates, so stay to the side and attack when the heads are still, otherwise you will get hurt. And last, it rises from the ground only using it's hind legs to stand up. Once it falls to the ground, an earthquake covers the stage, but you can dodge this bu jumping or getting on it's back once it's down. Just follow this rule and you'll win. For winning this battle, Your thunder spell is upgraded. The fourth battle is against my 2 favorite character: Cloud and Leon. Now these guys are like the recent battles you've battled against them. Go after Leon first. He has some moves like sword sweep, fire shot, and he powers up his gun-sword into a giant chrystal like sword. Once he's finished, go after Cloud. Cloud is the same in the Herc. Cup. He gaurds with his sword, he swings it around, he attacks like a speeding bullet and goes to another spot, and if he wants to, he jumps up and decends onto the ground on one of your teammates or you. There's 2 more things I have to say about Cloud. First, he says things before each attack, and second, he glides and he's invincible. For winning against these cool warriors you get the Lionheart keychain. The next battle is against the lord of the Underworld himself, Hades! He has a lot of attacks. First, he attacks you with his deathgun, second, his hands sends out inferno, to dodge this attack, just run the way the flames are going or use dodge roll, third, once his head is red, he has 2 new attacks, first, he has a meteor gun, which you can send back at him by casting aeroga or hitting it, and second he has inferno swipe. He also has another attack when his head is blue, he has flames from his hands and he floats, you can stop him by attacking him. Use this strategy to win. For winning against him your gravity spell is upgraded, and you get Ansem's Report 8. The last battle in the game is the evil rocks combined, Rock Titan. At the beginning, use aeroga on yourself, lock onto one leg, and start attacking. It might start stomping so jump away when it does. When it falls, climb up it's legs and attack it's heads. Both heads try to swipe you off but you can dodge this by attacking the other head because both heads don't attack at once, also think of using Rag. or Ars Ancr. on the heads and feet. When it knocks you off just complete the process until you've won. For winning this battle, you beat the Hades Cup and you get the ability, Trinity Limit. [Note: Once you beat the Hades Cup there's a pot outside on the right of the bars. Examine the pot to get an Orichalcum.
