The Mirage Arena is a great place to do a lot of things and earn great prizes for them. This is also the only place where you can play in multiplayer. The main focus of this section will be on the Arena Mode which pits you (and your friends if on multiplayer) against some of the hardest challenges in the game. While playing in the Mirage Arena you will earn Medals, a new form of currency only for use in this area. In order to spend it on most of the prizes available you must first raise your Arena Level. There are a few ways to raise your Arena Level:
Complete an Arena Mode challenge (15)
Complete a Rumble Racing Target Time (4)
Win a Command Board game (4)
Earn a set amount of Medals; 300, 1000, 3333, 5555, 7777, 9999 (6)
You can earn 15% more medals while playing with multiple players. You can also bring along a Group ability and use it during battle, such as a Group Cure, to earn the same effect by tricking the system. Remember that to unlock the Rumble Racing courses you must do so in Disney Town and then beat the target time in the Mirage Arena.
General tips for Arena Mode :
Equip at least one level 6 Command.
Equip at least one area of effect Command.
Equip at least one Curaga
Don't equip attack style movements (Ice Slide, Sonic Impact)
Equip fast locking Shotlocks
Equip Vanish if you have it
Stay mobile and stick to your guns
Pick out the strongest enemies in each group. Tank Topplers, Mandrakes, and Chrono Twisters fall in to this group. Buckle Bruisers and Wild Bruisers can also be a nuisance so use magic attacks to quickly devastate them (Mega Flare)

BOSS - Iron Imprisoner I
The Iron Imprisoner will fly around in a cauldron with his arms locked. Since most of his attacks will negate your combos it is recommended to let him initiate and then counter. The easiest attack to counter is the lasers; simply jump over them and combo for some decent damage then slide out into safety. The Iron Imprisoner's melee attack can be blocked and countered so you can get some more damage out of this attack. The other attacks should be avoided completely and they are his fiery spinning move and the underground explosion. Dodge these attacks with Slide, Dodge Roll, or Cartwheel and wait for the Iron Imprisoner to use easier attacks to counter. When you get put in the cage simply do as much damage as possible to break out quickly. Bust out a Shotlock during the lasers or when you have enough distance for some decent damage and invulnerability.
