When you begin your game, you are required to choose a unit from one of the four main elements, that is Water, Fire, Thunder and Earth. These elements can be later fused and evolved into their bigger forms which are more powerful. Here is a quick list about the elements:
Water - Strong against Fire
Fire - strong against Earth
Earth - strong against Thunder
Thunder - strong against Water
Light - strong against Dark
Dark - strong against Light
There is a unique relationship among the light and the dark element, as both are powerful against each other as well as weak, which means light inflicts greater damage to dark but also takes greater damage from it.
The Arena in Brave Frontier is a place where you can battle other players and prove your mettle. You can get 3 entries into the Arena since you're given 3 orbs and each entry costs one orb. However these recharge with time and regenerate once every hour.
Also if you aren't comfortable facing any player, due to whichever reason, you can choose to skip the fight by going back using the "back" option in the menu.
There are also certain rules to the arena, which are:
1. Attacks are made by all units automatically
2. The team that is able to knock out the opponent is declared the winner
3. If a knockout doesn't happen, winner is decided based on greater number of surviving units, greater HP and greater damage inflicted on the opponent.
Upon winning battles in the arena, you are granted Arena Battle points or ABP. Each win gets you more ABP, leading to increasing your level with time whereas each loss takes away ABP from you.
Also, you lose more battle points if you lose to players that are ranked below you while you gain more ABP if you defeat players ranked above you. So you have to be wise in choosing the right strategy.
