 Mission walkthrough
As soon as you arrive, it's time to jump into the fray. Once outside, you'll be greeted by three Li'l Cannons. Eliminate them and grab the chest and proceed through the Coliseum Vestibule straight into The Coliseum where you'll be welcomed by your target: the Morning Star. It has a couple of Li'l Cannons of its own to assist it, whose targeting skills will make this battle tricky. You should focus on defeating the Morning Star since the Li'l Cannons respawn.
After defeating it, the Cannons will continue to respawn for a while, depending on how many you managed to dispose of during the battle. Once they're gone, take a look around. You will find most of the treasures and badges of this Mission in this area. The Ordeal set might be tough to reach without Air Slide, Glide, or a similar ability, but they're not impossible to snag the first time around if you come prepared.
When you return to the outside, you will find that a Zip Slasher has appeared while you were fighting inside the Coliseum. Taking it out isn't too bad; it just has a lot of health. Xigbar will help wear the Zip Slasher's HP down. With the Zip Slasher gone and the mission complete it's time to RTC.
