Courts of Agony (絶・奈落門, Zetsu・Narakumon, Absolute・Gates of Naraka) is a set of special stages that appears every 11th, 12th, 25th and 26th of every month. It is unlocked after clearing Courts of Torment. The first stage yields 1,000,000 XP when first completed, while the second stage drops the True Form of Medusa Cat - Naga Cat.

- The 11th, 12th, 25th and 26th of every month
- Courts of Agony is currently the only Awakening Stage for a Tier 2 Advent drop.
- Both stages' Japanese names contain puns:
- Heaven and Hell's Japanese name, Gokuraku Edo (獄楽穢土), makes an untranslatable pun with the word gokuraku (極楽, meaning paradise, or the Pure Land in Buddhism). Normally it would be spelled 極楽, but here it's 獄楽 - the first kanji is replaced by one meaning "prison". The word edo (穢土) refers to the opposite of the Pure Land, the land of the living or "Impure Land".
- Okame's Teahouse's Japanese name, Meido Kissa OKAME (冥土喫茶OKAME), has a slightly more comical pun: normally meido kissa would mean "maid café", but the stage name spells meido as 冥土, meaning the netherworld.
