OFFLINE ACHIEVEMENTS: 7 for 80http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg

For ease of Achievements, we are going to base this guide on 2 playthroughs based on ARCADE/TEAM play & ADV MODE. Reason for advanced is mobility. For your 1st playthough your main priority will be to unlock "Orochi" as a playable character. You have to fight him to unlock him.
To do so you will need to have between 6 and 9 Super Finishes(DM's or SDM's) before you reach battle 7.
U can lose and continue, u will still unlock him. At a minimum, u will also nab yourself this achievement:


http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/uL/Fb/0oCLiGJhbC9GFQUXXFJRF0QxL2FjaC8wLzIAAAAA5+fn-XSxow==.jpgChampion 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Finish the game (can continue) ( Arcade/Single Play Only ).

Set the difficulty to 1(Easiest)
Set your players power guage to MAX
Set your defence to level 8
Set CPU's defence to level 1
OK remember we wanna also unlock Orochi in this playthrough, so if you play Arcade/Team you will need 6-9 Super Finishes(DM's or SDM's) before the 7th match.
You may want to hit "Practice" and scope out a few characters and their movesets, some recommended characters and their (S)DM's are:

Ryo, Takuma, Robert & Yuri: http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rightdpad.png, http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/leftdpad.png, http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/leftdpad.pnghttp://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/downdpad.png, http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/downdpad.png, http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/downdpad.pnghttp://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rightdpad.png, http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rightdpad.png + http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/x.png


If u press the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/y.png at the same time with the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/x.png after each of the above moves it will turn it into the more powerful SDM version, which makes Joe's move EXTREMELY effective!!

NOTE: If your good enough u can spam normal characters supers and try and nab all the offline achevements in 1 playthrough!! The ones listed above are good characters to try and go for all the achievements in 1 playthough, especially Joe!!

Ok lets start Pick Orochi as your main(1st character). If in Team/Arcade mode pick him as your main/1st character and any other 2 characters, who wont be used at all. First were going for:


http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/0q/IZ/1oCLiGJhbC9AFQUXXFJRF0QxL2FjaC8wLzQAAAAA5+fn+TaiyQ ==.jpgUncontrollable 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg (Missable)
Iori(Ura) or Leona(Ura) appear as CPU ( Arcade/Single Play Only ).

To have them appear you will need to have between 6 and 9 Super Finishes(DM's or SDM's) & you cant lose a single round before the 4th Battle/Team. Giving you 9 tries to get this right.
This achievement can be missable because Rugal can show up instead of Iori(Ura) or Leona(Ura). If he does just press on and come back for it later or restart and try again now.

After you have picked Orochi as your 1st character and the round starts, move away from your opponent and let the spamming begin! Just spam this move:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/downdpad.png, http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/downdpad.pnghttp://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rightdpad.png, http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rightdpad.png , http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/downdpad.png, http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/downdpad.pnghttp://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rightdpad.png, http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rightdpad.png + http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/x.png
If you time this move correctly it will be the only move you will have to do in the game.
Its also a Super(DM) move so if u do 6-9 finishes with it before the 4th battle you will have a chance at the "Uncontrollable" achievement. After you fight Iori(Ura) or Leona(Ura) and the achievement unlocks, lets press on for the next achievement:


http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/K0/m7/04CLiGJhbC9HFQUXXFJRF0QxL2FjaC8wLzMAAAAA5+fn-JRJMA==.jpgThe King of Fighters 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Finish the game ( can't lose one round, can't continue) ( Arcade/Single Play Only ).

Pretty much the exact same thing that got you to Iori(Ura) or Leona(Ura), keep doing untill u have completed the game.


http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/QV/r5/14CLiGJhbC9BFQUXXFJRF0QxL2FjaC8wLzUAAAAA5+fn+NZaWg ==.jpgScore Hunter 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Highest point exceeds 300 thousand ( Arcade/Single Play Only ).

This should come with the above achievement, if not unfortunately u will have to playthough and try and get more perfects and (S)DM finishes. You should get this achievement about 1/2 way through going for "The King Of Fighters" achievement.

Pass level perfectly in one round (without injury) ( Arcade/Single Play Only ).

After you have begun using Orochi this will come VERY easily, most likely within your first few fights!!


http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/jq/Ng/14CLiGJhbC82FQUXXFJRF0QxL2FjaC8wL0IAAAAA5+fn+E+jlQ ==.jpgUntouchable 5http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Achieve straight win ( Arcade Play Only ).

Im guessing atm, this one is to beat a whole team with 1 character, if it is, u should be able to unlock this achievement on your second playthrough with ease while going for "The King Of Fighters" achievement using Orochi. So if your going for "The King of Fighters" achievement, this will come after the 1st team is defeated.


http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/HV/uA/1oCLiGJhbC83FQUXXFJRF0QxL2FjaC8wL0MAAAAA5+fn+a9bBg ==.jpgAssist Attack 5http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Perform an assist attack ( Arcade Play Only ).

Probably the most time consuming of all the achievements.

To perform press A + B + C buttons at the same time when dizzied or in an extra long hold/throw. There are also some pre-requisites that are needed for it to work:
-Your health must be at 50% or less.
-You must have an undefeated teammate
-That teammate must be able to be seen in background
-That teammate also must have a neutral or friendly relationship with you.
IE: Kyo aint gonna help out Iori and vice versa.

Heres an ASSIST GUIDE (http://www.gamefaqs.com/coinop/arcade/file/562642/238) by M Lee @ Gamefaqs.com to help you decide the best team for this achievement.

A quick tip would be to Start an Arcade Play game, pick Mai, Andy & Terry, putting Mai 1st and Terry or Andy 2nd or 3rd, that way your chances are maximised. Jack in another controller and have player 2 join in, picking any team. Once the match starts get player 2 to push u over and beat you up in front of your other team members untill your dizzy, when u are press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rb.png which equals A + B + C on default. If you meet the above requirements the achievement should pop. If not and keep trying wont take u long at all. If u cant do it with a 2nd controller go into OPTIONS and change the games difficulty from 1 to 7 and let the CPU have at u.

The game's not even out yet and it's not a direct port of the old one man. I reject this guide.

pffft, whats it got to do with the PS2 besides 2 achievements. Well see in 7 hours if anythings changed.
Regardless on how much different the PS2 version is, its still a pretty solid roadmap(albeit a simple one) :p

07-01-2009, 08:59 AM
If it is the UM edition, then it should be the same as the PS2. Hence, what Ive put in the Acheivement Discussion thread should be relevant. I'll guess we'll find out soon.

Achieve straight win, you have it right. Got it in my first match, not sure if it always does it (compared to a regular win) but it flashed the two characters I didn't use with like a little tune.

Great guide.
Amount of time the game may take should be increased, 100 wins can take a few hours in iteself. (Assuming you're doing it legit, it's possible to boost. Similar lobby system to SF4)

07-01-2009, 10:56 AM
yup untouchable is exactly that, finish a team with one character oh and for every other achievement u get offline, u can mess with ALL options, not just the difficulty.

I have it at :
Cpu lvl 1
playtime: normal
Single round:1
Defense level 1p:4
Defense level 2p:1
Power gauge 1p: MAX
Power gauge 2p normal

So i spammed orochi's Encompassing chaos to get Uncontrollable,The King of Fighters,Score Hunter,and Perfect Match

KellyNUTS
07-01-2009, 11:30 AM
Niiice!! Do u mind if I add that Hektik? Very precise, thats what ive been doing today on the PS2 version, testing out things. U think it would make much difference to bump up Defense level 1p:4(to 8?)

mcnichoj, thanks, I think I will change the number of hours.

yamayamayaamaa
07-01-2009, 11:45 AM
Haha, Hektik beat me to the punch, I see you! (on friends list).

But yeah, I moved Defense to 8 and sped the time up to "FAST" as well but time doesn't really matter since you usually kill them so fast with those settings.

I also spammed Orochi's Encompassing Chaos to get "The KoF" achievement and barely ever got hit.

Edit: Ok, this may sound weird but this is what I did for the Assist Attack. Keep the above seetings but change;
CPU-LEVEL to 7
PLAY TIME to INFINITY
POWER GAUGE 1P NORMAL

Then, choose the characters listed in your guide. Mai, Terry, and Andy. Then just spam RB (LP+LK+SP) when you're standing next to your team and your health is low.


Edit: lol nevermind it shows how to unlock characters in the discussion thread.

I don't even think you need to go through the trouble of unlocking Orochi. With unlimited power gauge and the mode set to Advanced you can keep spamming ABC (putting yourself in MAX) -> SDM.

I got every offline achievement apart from Assist Attack on my first playthrough spamming Joe's LP Screw Upper.

I did my second playthrough spamming Kasumi's Ultimate Ecstacy Crunch.

Other good ones you can spam like that are:

Ryo/Robert/Yuri/Takuma - Haoh Sho Koh Ken
Krauser - Kaiser Wave
Eiji - Steel Wave Slasher

Perform an assist attack (Arcade Play Only)

You can get this easily with a 2nd controller by pressing Start after you've started a 1 Player Arcade Game.

Best Team is Team Fatal Fury (Terry, Joe, Andy in any order) for the achievement.

All the Online Achievements are Ranked Matches ONLY!!

Best Character you can pick for getting Orochi is Omega Rugal (Hold Back while on Rugal's Select Square). Has some of the best (S)DM's in the game, hands down.

And you can't unlock any achievements in OG '98 at all.

I could do assist attacks easily in OG98. Haven't been able to do one in UM so far. Can you still call for assists during hold-type throws (like Goro's normal A throw, or Joe's A throw?) Or do you have to be dizzied, then they jump in or what?

Also is it LP+LK+HP, for sure? I remember it being LP+LK+HP+HK (could be wrong on this, though).

I think it's only dizzies now but Love/Hate still applies and you can call for as many assists as you want as long as you're dizzy. And it's LP+LK+HP and it's mapped to RB just for whatever.

Seeing how fast you had your Garou : MOW guide up. :D

Ha, yea when I came on this one was already up! Glad this game is a lot easier on the cheevies than Garou was though, lol. Although 100 wins is a bit obnoxious.

Also, I can confirm what Junkie and Rexxx said - the matches have to be Ranked for the online cheevies. Since you can boot people out of your lobby, and the person joining can search for the host by gamertag, it isn't too hard to match up for boosting purposes. Also, as soon as the character/mode select screen comes up, the losing player can hit start and exit the match. Quits count all the same as full fights in this, and you don't have to wait for the actual fight to start to be able to back out.

There seems to be a lot of confusion about the assist attack achievement, so I made a thread (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?p=2116960#post2116960) with easy directions.

Sorry to double post, but here are said directions for your convenience:

You will need 2 controllers, but you can do this by yourself.

1. Start an arcade game with default settings.

2. Pick the "Fatal Fury Team"-Terry, Andy, and Joe. Keep them in that order.

3. When the match starts, press start on a second controller. This will bring take you back to the character select screen so player 2 can pick their characters.

4. Have the player 2 pick anybody.

5. When the match starts, walk back to your corner so your teammates are visible.

6. Have player 2 trip you over and over again (Down+B/Down+Red Button/Down+SK however you want to type it out) until you are dizzy. Have them be careful not to kick you once you become dizzy.

7. When you are dizzy, quickly press RB (which under default controls is LP+LK+SP)

8. One of your teammates will jump in and attack. Achievement unlocked.

I hope this clears everything up. Let me know if you have any questions.

just thought id mention, i changed the settings to max gauge, low difficulty etc and got 75g of the 80g offline achievements on my first time through the arcade mode. i used ryo and just spammed his SDMs though you could do it with anyone i imagine, people with much cheaper SDMs.

not trying to nitpick at all its a competent guide but still more efficient than two play throughs so i thought id say. then its just a 2player fight in arcade mode for Assist Attack, though you could get that on your first play through as well if you know what youre doing with it
