I did this solo using Ghost Roaster as the second character. I had a level 10 Ghost Roaster from Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure--the Darklight Crypt adventure pack. Ghost Roaster can enter into ectoplasm mode and not incur any damage from attacks or spikes. The catch is he loses health gradually while in ectoplasm mode. Path one provides an upgrade that reduces the amount of health he loses while in ectoplasm mode.

I started each team survival arena by putting a rubber band around the controller so that it would keep the left button depressed. This activates ectoplasm mode and keeps it on for the duration of the battle. With Ghost Roaster now invulnerable, you can concentrate on your main character. To three star it, you'll need to be able to keep the counter up which means you can't take many hits. As long as you clear out each stage pretty quickly, Ghost Roaster has no difficulty outlasting his health depletion.

If you don't have a preferred main character, I recommend Trigger Happy. With a path one upgrade (Golden Frenzy), he is a great main character. With machine gun, bouncing bullets, and Yamato blast, he can fill the entire arena with hazards for the enemies. His ranged attacks keep him out of harm's way. If it looks like he's going to get cornered, he can clear out the enemies with his Yamato blast.

Stealth Elf, with the Forest Ninja upgrade path, is also very good. With her scarecrow trio doing the dirty work, she can keep the counter maxed out while she stays out of harm's way. However, I find Trigger Happy's ranged attacks to be a little better. He can kill a Golem with a single Yamato blast. In contrast, Stealth Elf, without a ranged attack, has to get close to the Golem and will take damage from his 360 degree attack while doing so.
