When I first played it He was really hard. Fighting him at Olympus Colosseum wasn't that hard for me but at Hollow Bastion was so hard! I can't even remember how long it took me. In the end my sister (who was also stuck on it) Beat him for me before she beat him in her game. (it then took her a while to beat him herself ;)) Now I don't find him too difficult. I took me two go's to beat him last time I played it.
