BOSS - Hades

The battle against Hades starts with you being unable to harm him. This battle is much like the first time you fought him. You’ll need to use "Aura Sphere" to take Hades out of his red form. In his blue form, Hades is ripe for attack so let him have it! He will use Ring of Fire where he spins in a circle and creates a pillar, it’s hard to avoid at close range so just be on your toes – this move is indicated by Hades shouting, "That’s it!"

If you are having trouble avoiding attacks you can always stand by Hercules and use the Reaction Command to defend. In fact, if you stay by him the entire time you can keep up the Guard Sphere and just use Aura Sphere over and over to deal safe reliable damage to Hades.
