The Arena Ferox stage consists of a flat, medium sized stone platform. Similarly to Pokémon Stadium, the layout changes periodically. There are five different variations that can appear, in random order.
The first variation features destructible statue similar to those found in the second segment of Castle Siege. Both statues hold up soft platforms, with the left one holding one at an angle into the stage's center, while the right one holds two on top of each other: the bottom one is angled towards the center of the stage, and the top one is parallel to the stage's floor. There are crumbling pillars in the background.
The second variation features a moving set of gears with moving soft platforms to its left. Just right of this mechanism is a large, hard platform. To the rightmost part of the stage is another soft platform, which is the closest to the floor of the three platforms.
The third variation features two high, hard platforms at each end of the stage. The rightmost platform turns into a wall that connects to a small soft platform. In the middle of the stage is a similar structure to the rightmost platform, only with a high soft platform instead of a high hard platform. There are crumbling pillars in the background.
The fourth variation is the only one to be symmetrical, aside from the stage's default, flat form. It includes three soft platforms suspended by chains, in a somewhat similar layout to Battlefield. In the middle of the stage is a wall that suspends another soft platform. A wooden tower and wall appear in the background.
Only the main platform is featured, and no transformations happen.
Arena Ferox originates in the Nintendo 3DS game Fire Emblem Awakening. It is a gladiatorial combat arena located in the nation of Regna Ferox, a warrior nation that lets strength in combat dictate its politics, and the rulers of the nation regularly use it to determine their future successors. Early in Awakening, the main character, Chrom, traveling from the halidom of Ylisse to the south, earns the support of the East-Khan, Flavia. However, due to her having lost the last tournament to the West-Khan Basilio, Chrom and his companions must fight in this arena to ensure that Ylisse's future dealings regarding recent threats to the continent can proceed. His opponent is a masked sword-wielder named after Marth.
