The Hades Paradox Cup is one of the four cups that Sora enters by talking to Hades in his chamber in Kingdom Hearts II and Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix. The tournament consists of fifty matches with the cup's rules changing every ten matches. Sora fights a boss on every tenth match and the final boss is Hades in Berserk mode. When the player wins the cup, they receive the Hades Cup Trophy. You can restart the tourney after every boss.
