The Parade of the Possessed is a Trial in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius. It is considered by many to be the last of the "easy" Trials, being the predecessor of Gilgamesh's Offensive which significantly reduces the scope of characters they can use to undertake or solo Trials or otherwise the strategies they can employ become much more limited. The players face a plethora of Bosses ending with Europa.

The Trial is not truly difficult as it is mostly a ramped up version of Surging Menace. That is to say the Trial's difficulty lies on being able to adapt to each battle accordingly while being capable of sustaining their HP/MP and resources during a long drawn out fight, making it more a battle of endurance than anything.
All Bosses are found in the Storyline or the Colosseum so the player is likely to face other versions of them at the point they fight this Trial, so there is very little to add apart from what the player has encountered, except that this time the monsters are significantly stronger.
The Bonus Lapis from the Missions is more generous than in other instances but still not essential, so the player is free to ignore the conditions to play better.
Mages with Elemental and Non-Elemental damage are helpful as they can circumvent resistances and exploit weaknesses. Exdeath is very useful for this, as are Noctis' Flask abilities that also come with secondary effects that can exploit Stop or other Status Ailments. He also doubles as an MP Battery with Cover and can use Warp Break for neutral damage and Point-Warp to recharge his MP.
A Tank is helpful but not mandatory although they may make things easier. Warrior of Light has powerful Breaks, Veritas of the Earth has reliable damage reduction abilities, Cecil and Charlotte can provide heals, support and Charlotte can also provide some MP recharges.
Some elemental protection, mostly Barthundara and above may be needed to resist Europa's attacks. Some Bosses on the upper tiers are immune to Breaks, so buffs like Rain's Leadership, or others like Cheer/Focus are helpful to deal with their resistances.
Osmose/Lance may help in mitigating the use of MP Items although the player should stock on them. Phoenix Downs are also viable as some Bosses inflict instant KO, while they can one-shot the Terror Knight.
Overall the Trial is not difficult for a decently equipped party.
