Vanquish the Heartless threat.

Story summary

Roxas and Demyx are sent to Olympus Coliseum to eliminate the Guard Armor in the games, but Roxas encounters a familiar, scarred face in the semi-final match.

Mission walkthrough

Defeat the Heartless appearing outside the Coliseum, then enter the Vestibule. Phil informs Roxas that the games have already started. The only way to enter the Coliseum and search for the Heartless is to enter the games. Speak to Phil again when your ready. The objective is to defeat five rounds of enemies. Using the barrels or not to achieve this is totally up to you. Remember, hitting an enemy with a barrel is an instant defeat. Round four features a Tailbunker that is harder to bring to the ground than usual. Jump onto the top platform and knock barrels into it to inflict severe damage and ground it. Follow this up with a quick combo before it rises, once it does rise into the air, repeat the process until your victorious. Now, to defeat the Heartless threat!

...Or not, turns out Xigbar decides that he wants to test Roxas's strength. Don't waste all your healing items and magic spells on Xigbar, he surrenders once his HP has been depleted by half. After Xigbar, the real target shows up: the Guard Armor. Brace yourself for a long battle if you're not fast. After the Guard Armor is defeated, RTC.

Challenge Mission

Challenge Mission 61
Avoid taking damage
Level capped at 20, no attack magic
3 6 hits or less
2 7-35 hits
1 36-50 hits

This is one of the most difficult challenges. Take your time, as there is no hurry. Round 1 should be easy enough to get through without taking any hits. Round 2 can be the most dificult one, as Search Ghosts attacks are hard to avoid. If you are using a gear with a short combo, throwing barrels at them could prove useful, but be careful, the ghosts are very ellusive. You could also try to get rid of them using aerial combos and trying to evade their attacks carefully. Round 3 should be easy if you manage to get rid of the Ice Cannon fast enough, then throwing barrels at the Striped Arias. In Round 4, eliminate the Yellow Operas first, and then try to shoot barrels at the Tailbunker without stop, being careful to avoid any attack it may throw at you. Round 5 should be easy, if you manage to rush fast towards Xigbar and attack him with aerial combos. Lastly, learn the Guard Armor's attack patterns, and attack it only when it has stopped.
