The Hercules Cup is the third tournament at Olympus Coliseum in Kingdom Hearts. Upon its completion, Philoctetes puts up the trophy in the Lobby. Completing the Hercules Cup allows Sora to acquire the Olympia Keyblade and seal the Olympus Coliseum Keyhole. Sora can also acquire Trinity Push if he has also beaten the Phil Cup and Pegasus Cup.
Cloud now has an "Omnislash" ability, which causes him to fly around and home in on the party during each attack, and makes him invulnerable to damage. Apart from that on top of more strength and HP, his other attacks are more or less the same as in the preliminaries. Cast an Aero spell to halve the damage, dodge where necessary, especially during his Omnislash; attack him where there is an opening such as blocking his normal sword combo, and heal where necessary. Beating him will grant Sora the Metal Chocobo Keyblade.

In all modes, Sora battles Hercules one-on-one with no party members. Hercules begins the fight surrounded by a golden aura, which grants him invulnerability to damage. Throwing the barrels that appear on the field at Hercules will dispel the aura, occasionally stunning Hercules, as well. At this point, Hercules will be vulnerable to Sora's attacks for a short period before he become invulnerable again. All the while, avoid his attacks: He initially uses a charging punch, which must be dodged, and a shockwave attack, which can be avoided by jumping. As Hercules accumulates damage, he will begin using a spinning sword attack and charging at Sora like a bull. The spinning attack can be blocked, and it may cause Hercules to be dizzy for a few seconds, providing an opportunity to attack freely, if his aura is gone. The rushing attack can be blocked or deflected for Tech Points. Late in the battle, Hercules will use an explosion of energy similar to Stun Impact. The best opportunity to throw a barrel is when Hercules stops to pose.
