Upon Reaching Disk 4, you will be allowed to access the Backyard in the 
abandoned apartment in Old Gohtza.  The backyard battles are only accessible if
you find "Magical Lock Keys" scattered throughout the world.  Each key unlocks
a new class of battles for you to challenge.  Each battle has it's own enemies
and it's own rules.  Each battle also has it's own secret rule, which you must
discover by finding secret documents, also scattered around the world, which
provide secret information on each battle.   For every battle you win, you will
be awarded very nice prizes.  Complete them all for complete mastery of this 
game.

In each Backyard Battle, it is possible to earn up to 3 Stars.  These stars are
added up for you to exchange for prizes.  The more stars you get, the better 
prizes you get, up to 60 Stars.  There are secret conditions in each battle to
earn more Stars.

To Earn 1 Star-: Merely attempt a battle.  You do not have to win; Just try.

Enemy Skill Breakdown
Physical Attacks: Normal Physical Attack
Magical  Attacks: Shadowus, Shadowus x2 (When HP is reduced)
Status   Attacks: Cube, Sneeze, Quivering Sound Waves
Counter  Attacks: Physical Attack, All-Curse, Cube, Shadowus, Generatus,
                  Leveler
Counter Note: Immortal One will counter any attack with a Physical Attack , 
              All-Curse, Cube, or Shadowus.  This changes if you use the 
              White Magic spell "Reflect".  Once you use Reflect, any magic 
              based attack will be countered by All-Curse, Cube, Generatus, 
              or Leveler.  The more HP he has lost, the higher chance of 
              a counter.
---
Susceptibility to Status Ailments: Immune to all.
Preparation: To prepare for this battle, you really need to understand his 
------------ attacks first, so lets go over them.  His normal physical attack
------------ is pretty basic.  He walks up to you and smacks you hard.  He can
------------ also use this as a counterattack to any type of attack you use on
------------ him.  Shadowus is a Dark Magic based attack which causes very high
------------ magical damage.  This can be used as a counterattack to any type
------------ of attack.  Cube is an ability that reduces your HP to Critical
------------ regardless of any defensive abilities that you have; It can not 
------------ kill you.  This can be used as a regular attack or as a counter to
------------ any type of attack.  Sneeze is an ability that reduces your GC to
------------ zero.  Anytime you have any GC, Immortal One has a high chance of
------------ using this.  You may as well just have everyone in the front row,
------------ because GC will be useless in the battle.  Quivering Sound Waves 
------------ is an ability that reverses all powerups you have put on yourself,
------------ for example if you use Powerus and Immortal one casts said ability
------------ on you, your strength would actually go down instead of up.  Avoid
------------ using beneficial powerups like Powerus or Mindus.  Generatus is ok
------------ to use as there is no counterability to it.  All-Curse is only 
------------ used as a counter to magic based attacks.  Curse inflicts a random
------------ status ailment at the end of the turn.  This is easily remedied by
------------ equipping Anti-Curse or Ailment Resistance.  Generatus is a spell
------------ that Immortal One will only use as a counter to attacks, and he 
------------ will only use it if you cast reflect on yourself. In the case that
------------ you choose to do this, you will not see Shadowus for the rest of
------------ the battle, you will see Generatus, which heals for 30,000+ HP per
------------ turn, as well as leveler, which can damage you greatly, even with
------------ high levels and high magic defense.  This is not a good 
------------ combination to see, so to avoid Generatus and Leveler, do not cast
------------ Reflect (unless you want a challenge). 
------------ Lets look at the skills we need to survive this battle, shall we?
------------
------------ Please keep my Skill / Ability FAQ handy for this next part:
------------ http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/xbox360/file/928334/54333
------------
------------ This section is for your Immortals.  You should use all four.
------------ Slot +10, Slot +5: These allow you to equip a lot of skills.
------------ Persistence: This allows you to sometimes survive a fatal blow. 
------------ Instead of the enemy killing you, Persistence kicks in and brings
------------ your HP back up to 1. 
------------ Absorb Attack: This allows you to sometimes absorb Immortal One's
------------ physical attacks.
------------ Absorb Magic: This allows you to sometimes absorb any of the 
------------ Immortal One's other magical attacks.
------------ Lucky 0 Magic Damage: This allows you to sometimes takes 0 damage
------------ from a magical attack.
------------ Anti-Curse / Ailment Resistance: These allow you to not be Cursed
------------ by status ailments when Immortal one uses Anti-Curse.
------------ Weapon Guard (1 or 2): This allows you to sometimes take 0 damage
------------ from Immortal One's physical attack.
------------ Depending on how many Slot Seeds you have found, you may or may
------------ not have any extra Skill Slots available.  It is advisable to find
------------ as many as you can to maximize your skill repertoire.  These 6 
------------ skills are the main defensive skills you need.  There are others,
------------ but lets focus on offensive skills that you need now, and we'll
------------ fill the rest of your slots with other abilities once you have the
------------ main ones filled.
------------ Reduce Casting Time 2: Learn this from Cooke, equip it.
------------ Double-Cast: Learn this from Jansen.
------------ With these 2 abilities, you can cast Divide and Reversa very 
------------ quickly.  If you don't have these two abilities, go get them from
------------ King Kelolon (Divide) and Treasure Hunt #15 (Reversa).  
------------ Lv 8 White Magic: To cast Divide.
------------ Lv 8 Spirit Magic: To cast Reversa.
------------ Divide takes your current HP, and divides that number between the
------------ number of enemies you are facing and damages them all equally.  
------------ Since there is only one enemy in this battle, Divide will do full
------------ damage, equally your current HP.  Reversa damages one enemy based
------------ on how much HP you have lost.  Example: If you Max HP is 9,999 and
------------ you only have 2,000 left, then the game sees that you have lost 
------------ 7,999 HP, and this (7,999) will be the damage done to the enemy.
------------ These 10 abilities are the base for your assault.  If you have any
------------ extra slots, start filling them with these abilities in this order
------------ of importance: Auto-HP Recovery, Crisis Defense, Critical Heal, MP
------------ Conservation or Auto-MP Recovery, Crisis Prayer, Auto Shield, Auto
------------ Barrier, Crisis Concentration, HP Max Up 4, HP Max Up 3, Magic 
------------ Defense Boost 1, Magic Defense Boost 2.  If you still have any 
------------ slots left over after this, fill them with the other Crisis or
------------ Critical skills.  
------------ You now must choose a Mortal to join your party as you must have 5
------------ party members.  Sed is an excellent choice with his 3 Accessory 
------------ skill.  Stick him with Angel Guard (Ailment Resistance), White 
------------ Charm (Auto-HP Recovery), and Talisman (Absorb Magic), he can be
------------ of help quite often in the first half of the battle.  Remember, 
------------ Sed can use 2 items per turn.  This can really save your butt.
------------ Check your weapons and rings if you're going to be attacking, 
------------ though I advise magic (divide/reversa) only. Atmosphere Ring is
------------ the best ring you can use against Immortal One.  Make it from the
------------ ringmaker.  Are you ready? Lets go!
The Strategy: Remember throughout this entire battle, if you are hurting, take
------------- a moment to get healed up.  The main point of damage in this 
------------- battle is Immortal One's countering ability.  The more HP you
------------- take off of him, the higher chance he has of countering you.  
------------- Towards the end of the battle, he will counter almost everything
------------- you throw at him.  While it may seem like he is getting 10+ turns
------------- per actual turn, remember, the main damage you are incurring is
------------- from counters.  Take a turn to heal if you need it, this battle
------------- is still very possible to beat in 30 turns.  If you don't attack,
------------- he will only attack you once.  (Shadowus x2 is the exception).  
------------- Start off the battle by casting Divide x2 with all characters.
------------- Your Mortal can do whatever he/she wants.  Starting on the second
------------- turn, follow this strategy: If your HP is above 66%, double-cast
------------- Divide.  If you HP is between 33% and 66%, double-cast Zephyrus /
------------- Divide.  If your HP is below 33%, double-cast Reversa / Zephyrus.
------------- These 3 double-cast combinations assure maximum damage output
------------- while keeping you healed.  If all of your characters are in 
------------- Critical (very low) HP and Immortal one is < 50% HP, stop; Take a
------------- turn to have everyone cast healing abilities.  If he uses his
------------- Shadowus x2 at that time, you could face instant-death.  A few 
------------- other words of advise: Physically attacking is not a good idea.
------------- He counters physicals just like any other attack, but you will do
------------- barely any damage compared to Divide/Reversa.  Normal magic has 
------------- little to no effect on Immortal One.  Divide, Reversa, and Gamble
------------- are the only abilities that ignore Defense, thus the only ones
------------- that should be used; Don't use Gamble though, that ability is a
------------- waste of time in this battle.  If you have some Composite Magic,
------------- you can cast Wind-Bound to put a protective Wind Shield around
------------- everyone so that Immortal One damages himself when he Physically
------------- attacks you.  
------------- If you choose to go the Physical way, equip Kaim, Seth, and Sed
------------- with Atmosphere Rings, and try to nail perfects every turn.  Have
------------- Ming and Sarah constantly healing and rebuffing with Powerus,
------------- Generatus, and Zephyrus.  This way is slower and more dangerous,
------------- but still possible.  The same defensive skill setup as the first
------------- strategy is suggested.
Achilles’ heel: Divide/Reversa
