Items: Mythril Shard, Mega-Potion, Entry Pass, Hero License, Dalmatians 22-24
Accessories: Inferno Band
You'll start out in front of the Coliseum. Use the trinity marks on your right and left under the statues. The one on the right drops a chest containing dalmations, the one on the left drops a chest that contains a mythril shard. Theres also a chest behind the left pillars that contains a Mega-Potion. Enter the double doors. Here you'll meet Hercules and Phil, they'll tell you about a tourney, but you won't be allowed to enter. You can take a couple of tests for the Thunder Spell but thats it. To win the tests unequip the Vortex ability (if you have it) and smash all the barrels within the time limit, on the second test one barrel will be out of your reach, cast fire on it until it breaks. After this leave the area and Hades will appear and give you a ticket so you can participate in the tourney. Stock up on items, save and then enter the Prelim tourney.
In the tournament you'll have 7 seeds (rounds). The first 6 are pretty easy, but the last one you'll run into a familiar fellow (Cloud) who happens to be a boss.
A nice scene occurs involving the three-headed dog-beast, Cerburus. You'll end up back in the lobby where I suggest you save. Head back into the Coliseum to beat up on the beast.
After taking care of him, Phil will give you the Hero License as you leave, then Cloud will give you the Sonic Blade ability. As the game progresses more cups will become available for you to win. When they do Chip and Dale will let you know. Refer to the Coliseum page.
Lets head on back to Traverse Town for now.
