Internal temperature's rising,
As soon as Sora witnessed the statue shooting a actual earth spell, he raised up his keyblade to defend himself. He wasn't fast enough to use Guard to create a better defense, and while they keyblade was able to deflect some of the smaller stone shrapnel pieces, some did cut across and through him past the parts of his body the keyblade wasn't blocking. Across the abdomen on the left side, cutting across the stomach higher on the right-hand side, and a mean cut higher up above his eyebrow that could give Leon's scar a run for it's money. Sora gritted his teeth and grunted a little, preparing his next move. What was he going to do, when keyblade strikes wouldn't work, and the Blizzaga he saw hitting the dragon barely doing anything? There had to be some kind of a weakness, but unfortunately since he was back inside the place and couldn't see the others, he didn't have any pointers on what to try next.
So, he did what he knew had worked before that could give him a distinct advantage, even if it was just for a moment. He aimed for the entrance of the place, and cast once again the familiar spell but on a different statue than the one Zidane had been facing; Magnega. This should hopefully once again pull the statue into the magnet-element spell's orbit and disable it for a bit while he hacked away at it, but he prepared himself for what would happen if the spell's gravitational field didn't work for some reason. He had to think fast! Maybe he just needed more power to chip away at these clunky statues?
So what else would Sora do against a enemy with a high defense? Well, go straight right through the defense with a powerful attack head-on, of course! And so, with this simple stategy in mind, Sora pulled back on his keyblade as he held it's two-handed grip up to eye level next to his head, jumping back as he did. Then in a sudden reverse of momentum, he burst forward with the Kingdom Key's tip like a lance as hot white energy formed a cone of energy at the tip while he surged forward, using Guard Break. The technique was special in that not only did it do physical light-enchanted damage, but could break through an enemy''s guard as if ignoring their defense altogether, and hopefully it would be enough to pierce through this enemy's thick rocky hide.
He just hoped his friends were having better luck!

First action: Attempted a normal block against the statue, and got damaged, but still buffered from being severely injured.
Second action: Used Magnega in a attempt to disable the statue again, knowing it was a spell that worked against Zidane's statue before.
Magnega: A offensive spell, this magic that utilizes the element of weight and darkness, much like Gravity which it replaced, creates an orb that draws lesser enemies in towards it and then damages them consistantly until it vanishes. This is a great attack to use on smaller enemies, but it does not work on more powerful individuals and boss enemies. Two-post cooldown.
Third action: Tried attempting Guard Break to break through the statue's tough skin to damage it.
Guard Break: Sora jumps backwards to dodge any close-range attacks, then immediately counter-attacks with a powerful white energy lance on the tip of his keyblade, resulting in a powerful piercing blow. This attack has the element of Light. Cooldown: Three posts.
