The player must keep the imprisoned character alive throughout each fight. During the second battle, Vivi will use Fire on Prison Cage at regular intervals.
During the first fight, both Zidane and Steiner will be in the party, giving the player the first opportunity to use Steiner's Sword Arts ability. Zidane will begin the first fight using Trance.
