First activated September 26, 2016 (UTC), the Showdown Event presents as an amalgam of other event types:
- As with other Challenge Events, the player must unlock a series of battles in order of increasing difficulty.
- Like a gauntlet, each battle is against a single enemy.
- As with a phased event, new battles are released at set intervals over the full span of the event.
- As first introduced, the Showdown Event is a Mote Dungeon, capable of offering 3★, 4★, and 5★ Motes used in Record Sphere augments. New to these events is the Empowering Mote that allows qualifying Heroes to access the ultra-rare 6★ ability class. Unlike the Nightmare, however, abilities in this class do not require a corresponding synthesis Record to craft.
Showdown Events also use Bravery Synergy, a concept first introduced with Discord and Harmony. Under this system, only Heroes with specific traits as determined by the phase of the Showdown will receive a Synergy bonus. These Heroes will also automatically grant Synergy to select equipment from all Realms when worn.
Each phase of a Showdown offers four battles against one boss, each battle being significantly more challenging than the battle previous to it. The equivalent levels of difficulty are Hard, Heroic, ++, and Ultimate +.
