Better Cameo Battle? Abyss or Graces?
Phillia didn't get the treatment she deserved so Abyss's sucked.
Graces had Kohaku's sexy legs so yay.
The day we get Stahn, Kongman, Eugene, and Max in one cameo fight will result in me writhing on the floor. A little bit because of the constant orgasms but mostly because they'd probably destroy any team within seconds just by standing there.
Kongman: "PHILLIA-SAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!" *ULTRA-FLEX*
Max: "AQUA LAZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!"
Eugene: "I'M A GOD DAMN PANTHER!"
And the stadium simultaneously gets engulfed in flames due to Stahn, flooded due to Max, shattered due to Eugene's Force of Earth, and pumped full of player-destroying steroids due to Kongman.
And I'll love every moment of that beatdown.
Gameplay wise Abyss wins easily. Abyss's cameo fight was probably overall the best boss fight in that game, especially as it got crazy with both your team and theirs constantly reviving members. It was just a heartbreaker to be doing well and then suddenly see Aurora Wall go off! Regardless though, I still feel pretty okay with out general strategy of "rush Mint" since she's just a problem who needs to die first; it's just that it's very important to rush Reid very hard as soon as Mint goes down.
Symphonia's cameo was messed by up being in the arena with the whole 3 character limit of that game; it was just annoying.
Vesperia's cameos were ruined by requiring you to play with Vesperia's broken combat. Why would anyone even bother; all endgame fights were exactly the same in that game anyway with the only difference being if you bothered to level up enough to see water swirling on the ground instead of meteors raining down.
Graces was just poorly designed in terms of difficulty. You had to clear at least the first nine floors of the Zhonecage to unlock the cameo battle, and by the time you could do that, you would be able to beat the cameo battle pretty easily. Honestly it was kinda silly how Reala alone was a significantly harder fight than the cameo team; I have no idea what they were thinking. Graces had a ton of really amazing boss fights; the cameo fight was probably not even in the top 20 fights within Graces. I suppose cameo fights can get some credit in that the individual fights were pretty good; Veigue was a pretty good fight if you didn't do it too late, and Reala was extraordinarily hard with ridiculous defenses (I was constantly remarking that she must be related to Arietta). Amber wasn't a particularly notable fight, but 2/3 isn't bad.

^Pretty much nailed it.
The fact that Abyss's cameo battle is superior is due to a great mix of characters of different background, ranging from a pure melee fighter in Reid, two range spellcasters Philia and Mint and Nanaly, a ranged character. This mimics your party which can be composed of similar combination of party roles. 4v4
And it gets better in higher difficulty, where Reid basically abuse Burning Phoenix and get to use aurora wall. Really fun fight overall.
Abyss craps on like, every cameo battle in the series. The characters were so diverse and you really got a taste of your own medicine when fighting a team that mimicked your own. You got to feel what it was like when a boss sees you use revitalize or a life bottle. It was damn hard, and super satisfying to win and it had both Phillia and Mint (instant win). Finally, the rewards for clearing it a F'ing amazing.

Do you not hear that BGM?!
In terms of character selection, Vesperia hands down. How badass is it to fight FOUR main antagonists at the same time?
I really wish Xillia had one, an HD cameo battle would be a dream come true.
Graces had a good cameo, but like another poster said you had to wait until clearing floor NINE of Zhonecage in order to do it. That's reaaallyy late game and you will most like be superpowered by that time, taking out the fun.
I just wish that for Abyss', Phillia had more of her superpowered spells.
getting tossed around by Reid felt pretty good. so Abyss!!
Reid kicked my ass on hard and I was around level 125 range on Abyss.
Now after I got owned by Reid a couple times I put the game on normal and easily won.
Im looking forward to the Cameo battle on Graces f.
