This is one unique kind of mission. You'll fight almost all bosses of the game in this one single mission. You can gain 80000-90000 style points by completing this single mission. In fact, this level bears resemblence to the boss rush stages that have have appeared in another Capcom series, Megaman, a game also known for its unrelenting difficulty.
Run forward when the mission starts, continue as platforms will form in front of you. Jump in the mirror that'll appear.
Damned Chess Board
Kill the Damned Chessmen there, concentrating more at Damned King. If the King dies, everyone else disappears. Jump back in the mirror that'll appear on the chess board after you've defeated the King.
Road to Despair
Run forward, slay The Fallen that'll appear on your way and continue your path to the next mirror. There's a big foot statue behind the mirror. On the right of the statues you can find a Red Orb Crystal if you drop down. Similarly on the left is the last Secret Mission in the game, "Final Ascension".
Lost Souls Nirvana
After getting back, enter the mirror in front of the right foot statue. This whole area is cluttered with platforms carrying colored stones. By pressing circle near these platforms, you'll enter a boss fight.
There are various large Green Orbs scattered around the area as well as
a Divinity Statue for you to use. Once you complete a trial, that stone will be brightened in the central structure and you'll conjure up there. In the central structure, you need to connect the stones to form a light.
If you decide to complete all the trials in this area, you'll get a Blue Orb Fragment in reward. Otherwise, you need to fight bosses in order to light up a circle on the large monolith. Fighting Cerberus, Agni & Rudra, and Beowulf will open the way with the fewest bosses. You can also connect half of the jewels in the outermost ring provided they are all adjacent to each other to proceed. End the mission by fleeing through the mirror that'll appear beside the central structure.
If you forget which color is which boss, the platforms show the "portrait" of the bosses such as a nude woman (Nevan), a horse (Geryon), a three headed dog (Cerberus) or Dante's portrait (Doppelganger).
