Boss Battle Mode is a solo player, survival mode that puts Pit against all of the bosses he usually faces at the end of the Chapter. Pit has to defeat all of the bosses with limited health recovery. After defeating each boss, you will always return to the lobby, with the opportunity to heal yourself using the Drink of the Gods item, but you are limited with only five of them. With 20+ boss battles to complete, you have to be careful not to take too much damage in a fight, for if you run out of the Drink of the Gods item early, there's no possible way to recover health during the remaining fights.
 Together Mode (Multiplayer)
Together Mode consists of two modes: Light vs Dark and Free For All. The players in this multiplayer mode are generic designed fighters. You're able to alter many settings in Options such as Handicap, Time Limits, and Item Frequency.
 Light vs Dark
Light vs Dark is a battle between the light and dark team. Each team has to drain their opponent's team health bar by defeating the players. The player defeated that causes the team health bar to fully deplete, will become an angel, and the first team to defeat the opponent's team angel, will win the match.
Free-For-All is a 6 way deathmatch with the goal of obtaining the most kills within the time limit.
