This information is free to use, please just give credit when it is used.

All of these strategies are what worked for me. For each one, I will let you 
know which objectives I got S Rank in to get the overall S Rank for the bout. 
Only 4 need to be S Rank if the other objectives are graded at an A. Another 
way I use is to get a lower rank in Time and S Ranks in the others. You may
find going for an S Rank in another objective than I chose is easier for you. 
So I included the min and max values for A Rank and S Rank for each objective 
for each bout. 

I will list the pet I used to accomplish the goal. One thing to note is that I 
may have had stronger pets available at the time, but the pet must balance 
between fast kills, and not interrupting your aims for chains/crowns, or you
will have a hard time meeting even the A level for those. If you do not have 
the pet I list, a similar pet will suffice. You can also try the FAQ by 
Quemaqua to find the Rare pets. Trial and error will be the key to finding one
that works best for you.

You can complete the bouts in any order. However, there are some emblems I 
needed in order to complete later bouts that will require chapters to be 
completed in the actual game. So for those like me who wanted to complete some
bouts as early as possible, here is the order I was able to complete the bouts:

After completing Normal 5: 4, 5, 6 
After completing Normal 8: 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 1, 2, 3
After completing Hard 4: 13, 14, 15
After completing Hard 5: 16, 17, 18
After completing Hard 8: 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32

Bouts needed for Sword Rider Emblem: 1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19
Bouts needed for Acrobat Emblem: 2, 5, 8, 11, 14, 17, 20

Here are some general notes on each objective based on what I have observed:

-----------------
      Time
-----------------
The time to complete the bout changes for each bout. However, each bout follows
the same pattern. Within 3/4 of the time left is S Rank. Within 1/2 of the time
left is A Rank. Within 1/4 of the time left is B Rank, and less than 1/4 time 
is C Rank.

-----------------
     Damage 
-----------------
The damage allowed seems to be completely arbitrary, but it depends on the 
level of the creatures being fought. This means that the earlier bouts will
have a low tolerance for damage, so quick fights are best.

-----------------
     Crowns 
-----------------
The number of crowns needed is more difficult to generalize. The number of 
crowns to get an S Rank for a level is different for every level. It is
approximately 55% of the total number of enemies in the level plus or minus 1.
Crowning the same enemy twice counts as two crowns.

-----------------
    Pet Kills 
-----------------
The number of pet kills needed seems to be completely arbitrary. The only 
pattern is that the higher level of bout fought, the more pet kills will be 
needed to get an S Rank. If you are having trouble with pet kills, use the whip
to hold the enemy still so the pet can kill it. You can also increase pet kills
by whipping enemies into your pet to kill them. If the last hit into the pet 
kills the enemy, it will be counted as a Pet Kill. 

-----------------
     Chains
-----------------
The chains seem to be the only set objective in the bouts and in the normal 
levels. 0-9 chains for a C Rank, 10-29 chains for a B Rank, 30-49 chains for 
an A Rank, and 50+ will give an S Rank no matter which level of bout you are 
on.

-----------------
     Medals
-----------------
The medals needed show no discernable patterns. The ranges provided are ones I 
actually had during the bout, but may not be the actual boundaries. I may edit 
this in the future to add the exact medal boundaries. However, if you are
having difficulties getting medals for a particular bout, the easiest way is by
opening Secret Boxes. You can typically find Secret Boxes on top of the walls 
of arena.

-----------------
      Lucre 
-----------------
The lucre needed shows no discernable patterns, and it is difficult to pinpoint
the exact boundaries. The ranges provided are ones I actually had during the 
bout, but may not be the exact boundaries. I may edit this in the future to add
the actual Lucre boundaries. However, if you are having difficulties getting 
lucre for a particular bout, the easiest way is by breaking objects such as: 
vases, pillars, boulders, etc. You can typically find barrels on top of the 
walls of the arena.

Pet: Avikron Level 1

Goals for each level by type:
  Type    |  A Rank   | S Rank
----------.-----------.--------
Time      | 1:16-2:30 | <1:15
Damage    |    56-110 |   <55
Crowns    |       4-5 |    6+
Pet Kills |         2 |    3+
Chains    |     30-49 |   50+
Medals    |   146-234 |  235+
Lucre     |   445-729 |  730+

Strategy:
I went for an A Rank in Lucre and a B Rank in Time. Start by jumping over the 
Mushbooms and go directly for the barrels. The Goblins and Mushbooms will 
follow, allowing you to crown them quickly by knocking the barrels down. Let 
the pet kill off the Rabites and the Needlebeaks. Above you are Secret Boxes.
Use the slingshot to bring these down, and break them for medals. Do the
same with the Secret Boxes in the area above the entrance. Break for more 
medals. The Chobin Hoods appear then. Whip one toward your barrels to crown. 
Then, crown the other. For the last one, hopefully the barrels included an 
Undine or Dryad hexorb. Either of these will keep the Du'Bam still so you can 
hit him with pebbles until you reach your needed 50 chain. Otherwise, you will
need to use the other hexorbs, without killing him, to keep him panicked while 
you continue with pebbles.

         Chobin Hood x 4

Pet: Avikron Level 1, Rambull Level 1

Goals for each level by type:
  Type    |  A Rank   | S Rank
----------.-----------.--------
Time      | 2:31-5:00 | <2:30
Damage    |   106-210 |  <105

Medals    |   211-339 |  340+
Lucre     |   600-950 |  951+

Strategy:
I went for a B Rank in Time and an A Rank in Crowns. Start by dropping the 6 
Secret Boxes from above the entrance way. You should get enough medals to bring
you to whip level 3. Then, moving clockwise around the room, grab each Chobins
off the top of its platform, and drag it over to the wall. Immediately whip 
spin it, and crown it with anything (barrels, flower pots) you can grab by
whipping the object into the wall next to the chobin. Grab all Mushbooms along
the way and do the same. As you go around, drop the Secret Boxes from the 
upperpart of the sides as well. When all are defeated, attempt to crown the 
Needlebeaks in similar fashion, but it is not critical. Ensure your pets defeat
the Goblins. When the Du'Ram appears, grab it and drag it to a corner where you
can hit it with a hexorb and get your Chains without interruption from your 
pets or other enemies. Defeat the Firecats to complete.

Pet: Avikron Level 1

Goals for each level by type:
  Type    |  A Rank   | S Rank
----------.-----------.--------
Time      | 5:00-5:00 | < 2:30
Damage    |   103-210 |   <105

Medals    |   211-339 |   340+
Lucre     |   600-949 |   950+

Strategy:
I went for a B Rank in Time and an A Rank in Lucre. Start by breaking the 
pillar on either the right or the left side. When the pillar breaks, use the 
pieces to crown most of the enemies in this section. The pet will rack up kills
while you work on the crowns. once the one side is completed, do the same on 
the other side. Once completed, work up the side and crown the Goblin and the 
Chobin Hood. Work on crowning the Ice Molecats as well. When those are 
defeated, crown the Du'Bam. Move the Du'Bam away from the pet, then use the 
hexorbs and pebbles to get the chain. Lastly, swing around one of the Flower 
Pots from the top section to crown a few Needlebeaks to get the final crowns.
At some point be sure to bring down the 6 Secret Boxes from the entrance way to
ensure the S Rank in Medals.

Goals for each level by type:
  Type    |  A Rank   | S Rank

Time      | 2:31-5:00 | <2:30
Damage    |    81-160 |   <80

Medals    |   180-285 |  290+
Lucre     |   550-849 |  850+

Strategy: 
I went for a B Rank in Time. The key to this one is knowing where and when 
enemies appear in each of the rooms. To start, crown the two Hobgoblins in the 
starting room using the Secret Boxes. Let your pet kill the Hobgoblins while 
you break the 6 boxes in the room. This should put you at Level 2 for the whip.
In the next room, whip the vase right at the entrance to the room into a Shadow
Tezla. Then, you can whip the Tezlas into each other and the vases to crown at
least two of them. The pet can also obtain kills in this area. Open the Secret 
Boxes at the top of the ramp in the area while the Golem Guardians spawn. Whip
them into each other to kill. Take a vase into the hallway following to crown
the Golem Scout in the hallway. The Golem Centurion and 2 other GOlem Scouts
will run into the hallway, Whip the Golems into the Golem Centurion until 
defeated. Then, stand back and use the slingshot to get the 50 chains on the 
Centurion. In the next room break a piller to have ammo to crown the Golem 
Scout in this rom. In the last room, grab a vase from the entrance and whip it
into a Great Boa to distract it. Go to the back of the room and use the 
Treasure Chests to crown at least 3 of the 4 Great Boas to get the S Rank in 
crowns. Complete within 7 mins to get a B Rank in Time. Note: If at any time
you receive a Gnome hexorb, save it for the last room with the Boas as it will
speed up crowning there. If you get an Undine or Wisp hexorb, save for the 
Golem Centurion to make getting the chains easier.

Medals    |   185-295 |  300+
Lucre     |   550-879 |  880+

Strategy: 
I went for an A in Time, Crowns, and Lucre. To start jump into the garden in 
front and whip the Golem Friar into the Golem Sentry. Kill the Golem Sentry 
quickly. The Skulks will then appear. Try to crown the Golem Friar, but leave
the kills of the Ice Molecat and hopefully the Friar to the pets. Move forward
into the next room, but try to block the pets for now. Use the slingshot to get
your 50 chains on one of the Skulks on the right. Save the one on the left as 
it is near enought to the wall for an easy crown. Let the pets finish the 
kills. In the next room finish off the scout and the fighters quickly. When the
last Friar and the archers appear, use the stacked Secret Boxes to crown. Leave
the last kill for the pets if they need one more.

Medals    |   185-299 |  300+
Lucre     |   550-869 |  870+ 

Strategy:
I went for a B Rank in Time and an A Rank in Chains. To start, whip the Scouts
into the Du'Bam 3 times only. Then, let the pet kill off each scout. Crown the
Du'Bam and kill. Whip the 2 Molecats into each other 6 times, and let the pet
finish off. Knock down the 4 Secret Boxes from the each side's top and break
open. Then, open the 3 Secret Boxes at the end of the hallway. Knock down the
Tumblerock above the ramp where it heads to the lower level. Use the rock to
crown all the enemies here. Leave at least one for the pet to kill. Go through
the hallway, breaking down at least two pillars for the prizes. Use a pillar
part to crown the two Golem Scouts at the ramp on the other side of the
hallway. Use a Flower Pot to crown the Golem Sorcerer. Then, there should be to
2 Scouts hanging out at the edge of the ramp. Use a Flower Pot to crown and
kill those two. You can kill off the other two Sorcerers quickly. Then, use a
Dryad hexorb to paralyze and get the 30-49 chain on the Golem Centurion.

Medals    |   195-309 |  310+
Lucre     |   580-899 |  900+

Strategy: 
I went for an A in Time, Lucre, and Chains. Start by crowning the Rabite 
directly in front of you before it goes into the room ahead. You can use 
the Flower Pots at the entrance to the next room to do this. Then, go into the 
hallway on the left. At the intersection, go down the left hallway just to 
break the two Secret Boxes. Then, turn around to the right branch and break 
open one of the Secret Boxes there. Use the whip spin to light the other Secret
Box on fire. These hallways form a sqare. At the end of the hallway, turn left
and whip this box into the Grim Predator down the next hallway and kill it. 
Go to the end of this hallway, whip spin the barrel into the fire patch, turn 
left, and throw into the Grim Predator down the next hallway. Killing this 
Predator and opening the two Secret Boxes should give enough medals to bring 
you to level 3 whip. You can then use the whip spin to get an A Rand in chains
off the third and last Predator. Go left, then right down the hallways to 
return to the starting room, where there are now Matangos. Use the barrel 
directly in front of you to crown the first Grim Matango. Use a Flower Pot to 
crown the second. Leave the killing of these both to the pet. Facing the 
hallways again, go into the one furthest on the right. Use a Flower Pot to 
crown the Grim Great Boa. Once the Boa is dead, the other two will appear along
with the 3 NeedleBeaks. Use one of the barrels from the top section to crown as
many as possible. Once they are all dead, return again to the starting room 
where two more Grim Matangos wait. If you still need crowns or pet kills, use 
these to finish up. Remember that you will have at least two crowns with the 
Rumblekins in the center room. Go into the center hallway. Before you enter the
room at the end, grab a Flower Pot from around the corner to spin and send into
the room, distracting the enemies. Then, grab the Secret Box to swing around,
crowning as many as possible.

Lucre     |   599-949 |  950+

Strategy:
I went for a B Rank in Time and an A Rank in Crowns. Grab the boulder to the
left and sent it down the ramp to startle the Grim Predator at the bottom, and
kill. Then, go back to the top, spin a barrel into the fire, and set the Grim
Predator on the platform on fire to kill. Then, go down to the bottom left
corner. On the raised platform push the boulder down to crown the two Scouts
and the Warrior. Then, go to the platform in the far right corner, and do the
same to the other two Scouts and Warrior. Go to the middle section again, and
set on fire the Grim Predator lurking at the border of the middle and bottom
sections. You should be a whip level 3 by this point. Whip the Grim Predators
into each other to kill. Once all are removed, go to the left side again and
grab another boulder. Whip the boulder into the two Scouts and the Golem 
Centurion to crown all three. Go to the top left platform, and break the 
barrels and Secret Box for the lucre and medals. Do the same on the right side.
Then, kill off the Gorgon's Eyes by whipping stuff into them, crowning only if
needed. Save the last Gorgon's Eye to whip into the Avikron to help in killing
it, or use any obtained hexorbs to finish it off. Grant the pets any Predators,
Eyes, or crowned foes as needed to get the 6 kills.

Strategy: 
I went for a B Rank in Time and an A Rank in Chains. First, go to the top of 
the ramp on the left and send a Tumblerock into the Grim Predator, and crown. 
Then go to the other side, and use the Secret Box to crown the Gorgon's Eyes. 
Open the boxes and let the pet kill the Gorgons. Go around the outside crowning
and killing each of the Gorgons and Predators, giving kills to the pet to meet 
the final goal. Open any Secret Boxes and destroy any rocks and Flower Pots not
being used to crown or kill enemies. Spin a piece of broken Tumblerock into the
Avikrons to kill them. When the Archers appear, crown and kill off to remove. 
Save the last Sorcerer to whip spin to get about 30 chains to complete.

Lucre     |   575-899 |  900+

Strategy:
I went for an B Rank in Time and an A Rank in Pet Kills. When the battle 
starts, grab the Flower Pot on the left, and whip it into the Sharpshooter on 
the ground on the left. Jump down, and grab the Secret Box to crown the 
Sharpshooter. Grab the box and go under the bridge to the right side of the
arena and crown the Sharpshooter on that side. Back on top of the bridge, grab
a Flower Pot and spin. Send it forward into the mass of enemies in front. Whip 
the enemies into each other to kill. Go forward into the pile of barrels. Break
most of the barrels and Secret Boxes. Send a few over to the Avikron. You will 
need these later to kill that thing. Jump down to the side opposite the 
Avikron, and use a Flower Pot to crown any foes that are down here, Chobin
Hoods or Sharpshooters that were on the bridge but were knocked down. Kill the 
Grim Predator as well. If you are at whip level 3 you should be able to kill 
off the Avikron. Go back to the other side and crown the Sharpshooters above 
and below the bridge. Try to save one that you can whip spin to get the chains 
needed. Once the Sharpshooters are dead, the last Chobin Hoods and Grim 
Predator can be defeated to complete the level.

Strategy:
I went for an A Rank in Time, Crowns, and Lucre. Start by running to the far
end of the arena with the Secret Boxes. Breaking open the boxes should give you
level 3 for the whip. Then, break a pillar, and use the pieces to kill the Grim
Frostwraith on either side. Then, whip grab the other wraith to get the needed
number of chains. To get the crowns you need for this bout, crown the 
Spellbinders first, then Lancers. When the Molecats appear, knock them into the
Du'Ram to crown. When the new Frostwraiths appear, knock them into the pets to 
ensure the number of needed pet kills. Crown the rest to finish up.

there, then open the Secret Boxes to get get whip level 3. You can grab the

The pet can then kill. Go back to the starting point and use the Secret Boxes
to crown the Raiders and the Spellbinders. Crown the Marauder if needed. Jump

side from where you began. Break the pillar, and use the pieces to crown the 
foes on this side. Let the pet get what kills they can. Once all the foes are 
removed, go all the way to the other side skipping the Tremorkin for now. Break
the pillars and use the pieces to crown again. Then, go back to the beginning 
where the Gorgon's Glares are waiting. Grab a Secret Box to whip around and 
panic the Gorgons. Once these are killed off, open any other Secret Boxes

appears when the Raiders are killed as quickly as you can. For the Centurions, 
use Power Up to get in powerful hits while they are panicked, or use Flame 
Sabre to keep panicked while killing. Once the Centurion is killed, go to the
bottom of the stage, and knock the Gorgons and Spellbinders into the Centurion
down here to kill off. Crown a Gorgon if possible, and let the pet get a kill 
in as well. Crown the Marauders now, and try to use one to get the needed 
chains. Kill off the Centurion that appears. Then, use the Scary Shooter to

Strategy:
I went for an A Rank in Time, Damage, and Chains. Start by immediately grabbing
the Needlebeak and letting the pet kill. Go around the left side to get the 
Secret Boxes. Whip grab the other Needlebeak for another pet kill. Grab a Golem
Archer, and while the pet is surrounded by the other enemies, drag it around to
the beginning of the arena, and whip spin to get the needed chains. When the 
Archers are removed, shoot down the Gorgons so you can whip them into each 
other to kill off. Crown the Rare one. Go up the left side and crown the 
enemies here. Grab the Needlebeak in the center, and let the pet kill off. 
Crown and kill off the enemies on the right side. Then, whip the Raiders into 
each other, and kill off to complete.

right and whipping the Lancer into the Predator until the Lancer dies. Let the
pet kill the Predator while you crown the other Lancer and almost kill it. 
Leave for the pet to finish off the Lancer while you continue around the corner
and open the boxes and barrels. Go all the way back around to the other side of
the arena. Leave the middle section alone for now. Whip spin the first Ice 
Molecat to get the chains. Ensure the pet kills both chobin Hoods. Whip the 
Rare Chobin Hood into a rock to crown and kill off. Crown both Golem Warriors 
and kill off, leaving one for the pet. Grab a Rare Warrior or Lancer, and drag 
into the right hand corrider to whip into the Du'Bam and Ice Molecat to crown 
and kill. Open the barrels and Secret Boxes on this side as well. Whip the rest
of the Rare Golems into each other to crown and kill off. Walk on the ice 
patch. Then dispatch the regular Predators on either side. Lastly, whip the two
Rare Predators into each other to kill off.

Sharpshooter that comes running around. Let the pet kill the Sharpshooters. 
Grab the last Sharpshooter and crown. Let the pet finish off. Grab the 
rightmost Sorcerer before it takes off, and whip it into the other to crown.
Leave the kills for the pet. Go to the bottom of the ravine and kill off the 
Chobin Hoods. Grab the Rare Chobin and the Rare Scouts, and whip them into 
stuff to crown and kill. Go back up to the pet, and let it kill one of the 
Molecats. Kill off all but one of them. Whip spin the last to get the chains 
in, and kill off the Du'Ram.

a Salamander hexorb. Let the fire kill off the regular Archers. Shoot with 
pebbles to kill off the Rare Archer. Shoot the Rare Fighter twice with a 
Salamander hexorb, and let the pet kill off. Go to the left side of the arena, 
and shoot the Rare Archer twice with a Salamander hexorb and kill off.
Repeat this same pattern around, shooting the Rare Archers twice with a 
Salamander hexorb to crown and kill off. Shoot the regular Archers once with a
Salamander hexorb to let the fire kill off. Be sure to shoot the Rare Sentry 
twice with a Salamander hexorb and let the pet kill. Knock some Tumblerocks 
down toward the Rare Boas, and whip them into the rocks to crown them. Let the
pet kill off the Boas. Immediately go to the front of the arena, and shoot a 
Salamander hexorb into the pack of Molecats twice. Kill off all Molecats, 
letting the pet get kills as needed. Shoot the Du'Ram once with a Salamander 
hexorb to keep it on fire while you shoot with pebbles to get the needed 
chains.

Rabite into the other. Grab one of the Secret Boxes and use it to crown both. 
Drop them down so they can be killed by the pet. Shoot down the Secret Boxes 
and Barrels. Whip grab the Rabites one at a time, use the downed barrels and
Secret Boxes to crown, and smack into the pet to kill. Once only the Rare 
Grim Rabites are left, smack them into each other to crown and kill. Then, kill
off the two Rabites that appear, dragging them back near the entrance. When the
Rabites appear, use the Gnome hexorbs on them, and keep shooting until only the
Rare Rabites remain. Kill off the Rare Rabites. When the third wave of Rabites
appears, do the same thing again until all the Rabites are removed. Be sure to
open the Secret Boxes before killing the last Rabite.

Rumblekin twice with an Undine hexorb. Let the pet kill off. Do the same to 
the other Rumblekin. Use two Salamander hexorbs on the Rare Rambull right in 
front of you and kill off. Do the same to the regular Rambull ahead. Then, kill
off the Rare Rambull on the lower left side as well. Do not enter the quadrant
with the Spellbinder. Instead, use two Undine hexorbs from outside the quadrant
to freeze and shoot each of the Predators crown and kill off. Later, kill off
the last Rambull with two Salamander hexorbs. Immediately return to the 
entrance way to avoid being killed by the Gorgons. Carefully use Undine hexorbs
to pick off Gorgons one by one. Whip grab the Spellbinder and smack him into 
the barrels, rocks, etc., to kill off. Kill the two Predators. Then use Undine
hexorbs on each Avikron, letting the pet kill them off.

Tremorkin with two Undine hexorbs. Before killing off, run to the other side of
the arena by the sword in the stone. Then, let the pet kill off the Tremorkin.
Shoot the Gorgons twice each with an Undine hexorb and kill off. Shoot
each of the Frostwraiths with a Wisp hexorb, and kill off by sniping from the
sword area. Shoot the Tremorkin twice with an Undine hexorb, and let the pet
kill off while you are by the sword. Immediately shoot the rare Bloodwraith
with a Wisp hexorb, and kill off by sniping. Let the pet kill off a 
Sharpshooter in the meantime. Use a Wisp hexorb and snipe the two Sharpshooters
closest to the sword area. Then, move forward and use a Wisp hexorb on the
Raider and Marauder to kill off. Let the pet finish the last Sharpshooter. 
Move back to the sword area, shoot the Tremorkin twice with an Undine hexorb 
and let the pet kill off. Shoot the Rare Bloodwraith with a Wisp hexorb, and 
kill off by sniping. From the top of the stone containing the sword, snipe the
two closest Gorgons to kill off. Jump on top of the stone fence surrounding the
sword area, and shoot the two closest Rare Sharpshooters with a Wisp hexorb. 
Then grab one of the blinded Sharpshooters, and whip it into the other until
both have been crowned twice. Move forward, hit the Rare Marauder with a Wisp
hexorb, and let the pet kill off while you finish off the Raider. Move forward
again, shoot the last Gorgon with two Undine hexorbs, and kill off. Hit
both remaining Rare Sharpshooters with a Wisp hexorb, and whip into each other
to crown twice and kill off.
