The combined efforts did not truly work with their ideas; the truth hurts the trio – for it is but an easier answer to work with. Had they be able to harm Cerberus with its own attacks it would been a far easier plan of action to take. After all no matter how fast Cerberus, there is a limit one is capable of take against a trio of powerful men – especially of beast like the hellhound. Gambit would have to think. And he would decide to utilize history but more than likely his knowledge of mythology to bypass the hound. The Prince has seen the issue, even if they are capable of beating Cerberus, they would have to go all out just to do it – it is simply not wise. And any damage taken in the course of this fight would be a precursor to an increasingly bad situation when he would meet Hades later on. Here Gambit would take a time to think but thinking is not one that the Prince has time to do so – for the beast would start spewing a cone of lava-like fire breath onto them which led the trio into simply dodging them. This time however, whether by luck or by design Gambit has decided to try something differently. Setting into a mist of cold air through the use of cool balls that would permeate the arena into a cold fog, obscuring the vision of them, and Cerberus. This is not a problem for the dog however, for he is a beast – sniffing them out is nothing but child’s play. But it is not the reason why the Prince did so. Snow would form, and then an armada of spears, form with ice and snow would take place. Fireballs would launch from Cerberus’s mouth but would be met with Gambit’s spears. Each clash with fire and ice would result in even more fog and mist, further obscuring the mist if it hasn’t already been impossible to see.
But Gambit’s attack held the advantage, what is mere fireballs from the mouth of three dog heads compared to the seemly infinitely generating of ice spears? Cerberus would dodge, he could sniff them out after all, and he would catch the closest one – Gambit. Dodging the spears at high speed, despite its large size, it is as they would have thought – the hound is deceptively fast – even going as far as blinking to dodge the spears. However, its size is also a disadvantage, for as soon as the dog would close in onto Gambit, spears of different angles would strike on the back of Cerberus as well as its legs. Its force surprisingly enough to even cause at least of a painful reaction from Cerberus as it winces for a moment before the spears would freeze the dog in various parts solid. Gambit however isn’t done however – as the Prince metamorphosis into a demon, a screech from the screams of the Prince would resonate as a shockwave in a form of a ball would hit Cerberus rather hard point blank. An explosion occurred in the courtyard as its wind pressure of the shockwave would break structures and buildings – glasses shattered from the powerful shockwave in a ring of its epicentre. Smoke would occur as mist is being replaced, the Prince would have dealt an immense damage to Cerberus, and he would utilize a negotiation of sorts – hoping that he would do enough damage to force Cerberus.
The Prince would speak, but in seconds – a roar would be heard coming from where Cerberus is. A roar similarly to Gambit, would push the smoke away – showing the state of Cerberus. And perhaps to the trio’s surprise. Cerberus did not seem to receive much damage. The dog bled but it doesn’t seem to be substantial to say the least, the injuries it received is unlike Gambit’s most powerful attack, it would not add up. The bleeding came from stab wounds of sorts whereby the powerful shockwave of scream would not be able to do so even if it would cut, the wound is too different. While it’s damage is insignificant to say the least, Cerberus is a sentient beast – he may not have the incredible intelligence of man, but he would be able to understand the Prince’s words. And so the dog growled lowly, it would circle slowly around the Prince – its tail carefully encircling the Prince. Its drool, dripped from their mouth and to the ground. Its breath. Steaming hot while smoke would arise from within as if touching its mouth would burn one’s hands immediately. The Prince has Cerberus's attention.
