    For the entirety of ascending in the tower of lost souls, I only used two characters (I copied them both so there was three of them)
    EDIT: I have just found out that as of 5/23/13 the glitch where Algol rings himself out still works. It is safe to assume that this will never be patched, considering the sequel came out over a year ago.

    For every floor excluding 45-46 i used
    Astaroth: (entire time using down+away X+Y)
    Wepaon: Great Maul
    Nightmare Helm
    Dark Knight's Cloak
    Ursurper's Spaulders
    Dragon Tattoos
    Caretaker's Breastplate
    Guardian's Gauntlets
    Warrior Trousers
    Death's Boots
    HP Drain A (Nessecary)
    Auto Impact C
    Start Dash B (To make matches quicker)
    Auto Counter C
    Nessecary level: 8
    using this character i also made it to floor 36 descending.

    For floor 45-46 due to there insanely high defense i used...
    Yun-Seong: (Towards enemy Y+Y repeadetly for critical finish)
    Weapon: Soul Edge
    Horns of Calamity
    Round Glasses
    Juok Chaplet
    Paladin's Pauldrons
    Executioner's Fauld
    Noble Garment
    Vagrant's Kote
    Samurai's Hakama
    Hero's Shoes
    Evil Sword Berserk (Comes with sword)
    Soul Gauge Damage B (Nessecary unless you can without a doubt hit all three criticals without missing because the more times you miss the more aggressive they get)
    Start Dash C
    Nullify Ring Out C (the first person kept ringing me out)
    Nessecary level: 4

    Well there you have it. Sooner or later when I am really bored I will go on another account and find out how much all the equipment costs but for now this is all i have, so have fun beating the ToLS

    EvasiveRelicFor Yun-Seong instead of Noble Garment switch it out for Changpao since they're both almost the same thing but Changpao is better since there's an increase in defense and hp without any other stat or skill point decrease.

    As well as you might want to look at switching Vagrant's Kote to Warthog Gauntlets.

    This is addition to already excellent solution from Fatboyy

    It just gives you Astaroth with better stats. I've came up with this character after trying to pass levels 57-59 for 3 hours. Then I've decided to make a program that will take as input all equipement stats and calculate what's the combination that gives best attack/defense/hp. After 3 hours of programming/entering equipement stats and whole night of my Mac crunching data here I've came up with Astaroth with these stats:
    Attack: 171%
    Defense: 112%
    HP: 155%

    For compare, Fatboyy's Astaroth has:
    Attack: 150%
    Defense: 117%
    HP: 104%

    It doesn't seem like a lot of difference, but believe me - it does matter. Using this character I've beaten levels 57-59 in 20 minutes.

    From skills my Astaroth has HP Drain A (most important), Hyper Mode (much better than start Dash as you can use it to boost your stats when you need it the most with A+B+K) and Auto Counter C (just a bonus)

    Here is the equipement used:
    Weapon: Soul Edge
    Head: Horns of Calamity
    Face: Nothing
    Neck: Lord's Mantle
    Shoulders: Demonic Pauldrons
    Undergarment: Loincloth
    Upper body: Warthog Cuirass
    Arms: Hero's Gauntlets
    Lower body: Guimian Yecha
    Ankles: Shinobi Tabi
    Legs: Lusca Sabatons

    btw. if you don't have all equipement available, keep in mind that I've finished Story mode with every character before going after Tower of Lost Souls

    If negative vote, let me know why so solution can be improved.

    PrinceOfEterniaThanks, could not have done it without this setup. Also Algol is still throwing himself out of the ring in 2019, for anyone that might be interested.

    There's a great guide on GameFAQ's for this here:
    It's far too long to copy and paste but if it helps this is the link.
    It was written by someone named Elixym.
    It should be one of the first things you scroll past in the guide.

    Edit: Also, if you can, do NOT get the patch, the patch in essence prevents the computer opponent on floor 60 from ringing himself out. As long as you do NOT get the patch, you should be able to simply be knocked down and let Aldol ring himself out.

    Hope this helps!
