The dead arise
Fight 40 Servant Corpses
1-Survive
2-Don't allowed Corpses to grab you for longer than 10 sec total
3-Kill 5 Corpses from the air in one combo.
4-Complete all 3 previous trials in one shot.

This is pretty easy. Make sure you have your Mist form handy in case you get grabbed by a corpses. It is a very quick way to get out of a grab. First you want to focus on trial 3. These guys aren't too bad just dodge around and jump to avoid their attacks. On "Prince" difficulty, you can stick to your Chaos Claws the whole time. Use your Flame Cover(LT+hold Y) to pull a bunch of Corpses to you. This part is two fold. Not only do you gather the necessary number around you, at least 5, but you also weaken them for your aerial attack. When they are weak but not dead and you have 5, do a jump and use Eruption(LT+Y). If you weakened them enough, you should satisfy trial 3. If not, just keep trying. You have 40 Corpses to go through which is plenty to get this done. Once trial 3 is finished, kill the rest by what every means you wish.

Infection: Fifth seal
Fight 3 waves of 3 Dark Monks
1-Survive
2-Don't allow them to form the Dark Apostle for more than 40 sec total
3-Don't allow your health to fall below 100% for more than 20 sec straight.
4-Complete all 3 previous trials in one shot.

Ok so for trial 3, make sure you are full on health relics. The 20 sec timer will reset any time you restore your health to full. As for the Dark Apostle, you should be able to kill the Dark Monks faster than they can complete that ritual using Explosive Earthquake(RT+Y repeatedly with Chaos Claws). If they should happen to form the Dark Apostle and you've had the displeasure of facing one of these before, you should know they're a pain to reach and attack. Well, the trick is to hit them with one or more Void Projections. It may have been a fluke, but for me this immediately separated the Monks from each other. Either way, projectiles Chaos or Void are your friend against an Apostle. If you run out of powers, just use an Ensnared Demon to get unlimited for a short time, but plenty long enough to finish this challenge.

The battle of Niflhel
Fight 1 Paladin and 3 Heavy Warriors
1-Survive
2-Get the Paladin to break all the Warriors armor without killing them.
3-Keep the Paladin from forming his swords together for more than 20 secs straight.
4-Complete all 3 previous trials in one shot.

This is one of the most annoying challenges on "Prince" aside from the frozen Horned Demon one. It's not hard, just annoying. So first, Chaos Bomb each of the Warriors once and only once. This heats up there armor allowing the Paladin to knock it off them sooner. If any of them should cool off before he does this, you'll have to hit them again otherwise he won't do it in a single attack. Getting him to attack you while putting them in the crossfire is taxing and very risky at the same time because the Warriors can hit HARD. They will take your life down fast on "Prince". In fact, they more trouble some than the Paladin in my opinion. The other thing you have to worry about is the Paladin forming his swords together. If you're far away, he'll rain arrows down on you, and if you're closer he'll most likely throw his weapon. The best method to break the swords apart is just to get next to him and start punching (X) him with the Chaos Claws. The third hit will always break them. Be careful of the Warriors while doing this. This will reset the time for trial 3. This WILL happen more than once most likely while you are trying to get him to break the armors of the Warriors. The indicator for trial 2 will show you how many of the armors have been broken. Once completed, it's time for those Warriors to go. Dragon time. Use your Talisman and take them out all while knocking the Paladin down a peg or two as well. Now you can focus on him one on one. Use what you like and take him out.

Tip from CompanyOfWolves:
When you have the Paladin alone, use Icy Crest(Void Sword & Projections selected, RT+X) to freeze him in his tracks and go to town on him while he's immobile. This lessens the chance that he'll join his swords during the encounter or gives you a better chance to break them if he does. Use an Ensnared Demon relic if you're low on power.

Infection: Sixth seal
4 Riot Police and 2 Dark Monks
1-Survive
2-Dark Monks must invoke or summon 12 Possessed Citizens
3-12 Possessed Citizens must die from Riot Police mines/traps.
4-Complete all 3 previous trials in one shot.

This one is actually pretty easy. They are more interested in fighting each other than you so stay out of the way by dodging and jumping around away from the main fight. You may get a stray enemy your way occasionally but just avoid them for now. The Dark Monks will summon a portal on the ground and Possessed Citizens will start coming through. Trial 2 will complete itself after 12 have come through. Trial 3 will finish when 12 of those Possessed Citizens wonder into a mine laid out by the Riot Police. These are the red spinning circles on the ground in case you missed that in the story somehow. You may have to coax one or two Possessed to these circles in order to fulfill the trial faster. Just be careful and keep an eye on your health just in case. Once trial 2 and 3 are finished. It's dragon time once again to finish off everyone. Remember you can purchase replacement scales of the dragon from the Chupa shop. Ride the elevator to replenish his stock.

Infection: Seventh seal
Fight with Victor Belmont vs 75 Servant Corpses
1-Keep the number of attacking Corpses below 20
2-Don't use any Void, Chaos, or Relics
3-Kill 25 Corpses before Victor does.
4-Complete all 3 previous trials in one shot.

So Victor is a little prick. He will steal your kills when enemies you are attacking are low on health, and he also has his powers. You have only your Shadow Whip to use. On "Prince" difficulty, I found the best attack was Sustained Whip (Hold X, X x4). The final lash of the whip with this attack will take out a Corpse at full health in one blow. It's hard, but not impossible, to redirect this attack so try to line yourself up with groups of corpses. Be quick too because if the number of Corpses on the map reach 20, you fail trial 1. Trial 3 has a counter to tell you how well you're doing against Victor. You are the red number and he is the blue. Once you complete trial 3, it's all about keeping the number of corpses below 20 until there are no more left. This isn't a hard challenge, but you need to be quick.

Good luck and have fun.
