The Lair of Kaos
To reach the Lair of Kaos you must use the Dragon Wings to the left of the Abandoned Amusement Park.
1/9 - Path of Fangs
Attack the Kaos clones that come down the stairs, defeating them all will open up the gate at the top.
2/9 - Light's Beginning
|Treasure Chest 1/3|
|On the right side of this area.|
The enemies here are actually optional, you only need to solve the light puzzle to move on. To do that you activate the left crystal and then turn the central crystal four times so that it points at the splitter at the back.
3/9 - Light's Crossing
Again the enemies here are optional, you just have to solve another light puzzle. To do that go up the left path to activate the first crystal.
|Soul Gem 1/2 - Kaos|
|The Soul Gem is right next to the the crystal.|
Quickly run down the steps and over to the right to get the second crystal, turn it twice. And go into the tower here before you move on.
4/9 - The Time Out Room
Inside this tower is a Snail Challenge for an [Imaginite Chest].
|Treasure Chest 2/3|
|And a the back is a Treasure Chest.|
Back outside go up the paths that have now opened up, there's a [Selfie Spot] in the middle if you want to take a shot of the castle.
5/9 - Kaos's Knot
And again the enemies are optional, you can ignore them entirely. To solve the light crystal puzzle activate the first crystal then rotate the central crystal three times so that it hits a splitter on the right. Finally turn the back left crystal four times to solve it.
Once you're done with the Battle Gong step onto the platform at the back to be taken to the next area.
6/9 - The Grand Entrance
The circular section in the middle with the runes on will actually heal you if you stand on it for a while so heal up before walking up the steps to the first set of enemies.
The points thing is not actually important unless you're going for the "Big Winner!" Achievement/Trophy for getting too many points. In that case you'll want to defeat all these enemies but otherwise you can just ignore them as you continue up the stairs past a [Selfie Spot] with an [Imaginite Chest] just sitting next to it.
7/9 - Kaos Ball Run
The only enemy you absolutely need to defeat here is the large Kaos clone, defeat him and the gates will open up.
|Treasure Chest 3/3|
|Up the steps you'll find a Treasure Chest in the middle.|
There's also an XP ball and a healing pad in the middle. Go to the left of where the chest was to enter a tower.
8/9 - Kaos' Game Room
Inside this tower is a game of [Creation Clash] with Glumshanks.
|Legendary Selfie Frame - Sentinel|
|In the middle.|
|And on the right, it gives you Squishy Effects and Tiny Voice Effect.|
Advancing forwards, at the point where the two paths join up before the next area is a circular section that flips up if you stand on it.
|Soul Gem 2/2 - Sentinel|
|Simply let yourself get flipped by the flipper and you'll land over on a tower to the right (sometimes it won't flip you fully so just keep trying).|
9/9 - Bonus Round
The enemies are optional but they will infinitely respawn (until you complete the light puzzle) as you defeat them here so you can use them to get more and more points (if they stop appearing it is likely they have gathered back towards where you started the game show part).
Activate the crystal at the start of the area then turn the left crystal three times and then the right one four times to open the gate and finish the level.
The fight with Kaos begins. He'll summon a couple of Doomlanders to attack you, you'll want to take them out as you wait for him to come back down into range. They are very much the basic level Doomlanders with a small amount of health (but health that is tied to Kaos, doing damage to them hurts his health). After a while Kaos will float back down and begin his own attack, that is to create a purple damage circle around him blasting out pulses of damage across the arena you have to jump over.
A ranged character can continue to shoot him during this but a melee one should stand back and wait for the purple circle to vanish as he prepares to move to another spot. After a few attacks he'll summon another couple of Doomlanders. This will keep repeating over and over until you get him to about 50% health, he'll be slowly adding more Doomlanders to each summon (up to four). Luckily Kaos's own attacks will damage the Doomlanders so if you can lure them in close to him he'll get rid of them for you while hurting himself.
The second stage of the fight he'll summon a circle of eight identical Doomlanders and start attacking again. No need to defeat these ones as they'll vanish out of existence after they perform a few attacks. Just keep focusing on Kaos in the middle of it all when you can.
At about 25% health you'll enter the third stage of the fight. Not all that much different to the second stage but now your Imaginators will get double their usual bonus damage against Kaos directly so it is well worth switching to one if you aren't already using one.
The set rewards for defeating Kaos are: Sentinel Secret Technique "Grand Slam", Catchphrase Start "Knock Knock. Who's There?", Catchphrase End "Doom", Arm Guards "Saw Gauntlets", Headgear "See Saw Hat", and Sentinel Weapon "Saw Staff".
If this is your first time completing the game you will also unlock Nightmare mode difficulty, to play in Nightmare mode you must start a new save file as you cannot switch to it on an already established save (and you cannot lower the difficulty on that save once you start it).
Now that you've completed the story mode you now have access to Adventures, much like how you gathered cake parts earlier on if you talk to the Brain he'll give you a couple of options for where to go. If you don't want to do any of the options he presents you can get a new selection by going into a level and exiting straight away (going into the Academy or Card Shack does not help with this). Going to the same adventure that you have been to before does not mean it'll be the exact same thing you've already done as each one has several different scenarios.
Other than that there's the Adventure Packs, Sensei Elemental Realms, Battle Arena, Racing, book finding, the Rat Kingdom, and of course going back to finish off anything in the story levels that you missed.
