Legatus Melchio and Duel-SGX
Duel-SGX will do nothing this battle other than Gathering Energy. Legatus Melchio will do regular attacks and Shining Celica, also some AoE attacks. Melchio's defense is very low in this battle. Regardless of which Gold path you take, once Melchio's HP reaches 50% or below, the battle ends.
Gold 1 - Beat Melchio with Duel-GX intact
Bring the team with 5 NPCs. Kill Melchio 5* and 6* forms, and then when you battle Melchio and Duel-SGX, normal attack Duel-SGX until he reaches 30% HP. To do this, use Michele and Zelban BB only and use Lodin SBB every 3 turns. When you get Duel-SGX to 30% HP, "Code 666" is canceled. Then you can focus Melchio to 50% HP.
Gold 2 - Beat Melchio by losing Duel-GX (Bring Melchio to 50% HP with Duel-GX at more than 30% HP)
Silver - Lodin beat Melchio
Bronze - Kill Melchio without picking up all 5 of the NPCs. The other units can be your own.
