Hey, everyone. I posted this on my site yesterday, but I thought I would share this with everyone so they can get some help or read up on some items before the game releases tomorrow. I will note a few of the boss elements could be considered as "spoiler-ish," so just keep that in mind. If anyone would like to add to this guide, has questions, wants to format it like the other guides on the site, wants to sticky it, or whatever, I am perfectly fine with that. This guide originally comes from GemuBaka.com, so if you want to use this on your own site or spread it to other forums, you may certain do so, just, please give me credit. My GamerTag is the same as my forum name here, so feel free to add me on Xbox LIVE as well. As long as I have time, I'd be more than happy to help in multiplayer.

Bone Cold Justice - 10G
Defeated an enemy by hitting back a skeleton's bone
This is an achievement best done in corridors. I actually received this one not even five minutes within starting my game for the first time. In chapter one, from the beginning, head through the hall of zombies, climb up with the floating platform and take the first corridor on the right (the one that runs directly above the hallway you start in). You'll see a line of skeletons for you to try this with. There are even a few more good opportunities to do this in chapter one, such as the huge room toward the top with the two pendulumns. You can pretty much do this anywhere though - just hit a thrown bone and it may deflect. Another great place to try is in chapter three, where along the left side of the stage and toward the top is a good group of skeletons situated underneath a ledge. If the bone does deflect, hitting a skeleton should shatter it, giving you the achievement. Everyone I have ever compared achievements with for this game has had this achievement, so it's really not that tough.

Grasshopper - 20G
Jump kicked 30 times in a row without touching the ground
Way easier than it sounds. For the ultra-easy way to do this, find a bone pillar in a stack of four or more (they look like stationary dragon skulls that shoot fireballs). The first real stack of bone pillars you'll see will be in chapter two in a couple of different locations (there are two stacks of four at the very top and toward the center). Since they can't move and can't attack above them (and you can even stand on top of them without getting hurt), this achievement is easy game just by jumping up and then spamming A while holding down. I have also known people that have done this by spamming the jump kick on top of the first chapter boss, which is still relatively easy.

Of course, also keep in mind that not all characters can jump kick. Stick with one of the male characters and you won't have to worry.

Lifeguard - 10 G
Brought a comrade back from the dead
This can only be done online. All you need is a water of life (while in online co-op, every blue treasure chest contains a water of life) and a dead teammate. Just press the R trigger when you are beside the player's skeleton form and the prompt to revive appears. This will occur very naturally in this challenging game, but, yes, you can still arrange for this with a friend too. Just like Bone Cold Justice, this is an achievement that every person I've compared achievements with has had.

Vampire Hunter - 15 G
Destroy the lord of Castlevania
Simply, you just need to clear the game on normal difficulty. Starting out, I very easily did this with just two players and I have also killed Dracula on normal in single player. When you get toward the end of chapter six - keep a few things in mind so you can be in tip-top shape for the battle.

When you are climbing the corridor at the upper-right hand corner of the stage (the climb has endlessly spawning yellow Medusa heads), you'll find a pizza at the top for 70 HP - bash the wall behind this for a Quiche that boosts you another 50 HP. At the top of the stage, you'll encounter a single room with a Final Guardian (the big knight with a huge sword and spiked shield) - take it out and enter the next room, which has one more Final Guardian in it. In the room with this second Final Guardian, you'll see a staircase leading to a second floor above the Guardian, where a Nova (green) Skeleton guards a blue chest. Jump and strike at the ceiling roughly around where the skeleton was until you see a section start to crumble as you strike it. After three strikes, you'll discover a secret room, that contains a purple ("good items!") chest and on the table at the right of the room sits a group of Truffles which gives you an astounding 200 HP boost. The setback is, though, you have to have at least one other person with you to reach this secret room. Just have your teammate sit still and jump kick his/her head to get a boost and double jump in.

Are you by yourself or just still need even more HP? Just as you leave the room with the last Final Guardian and Nova Skeleton and see the staircase and open air, jump on the ledge right above the doorway and smack the wall for a Tasty Meat that replenishes 129 HP. If you want to see a crazy Easter Egg, continue jumping on top of the castle toward the right until you can't go any further (you'll see the roof shrouded in blue shadows in the background and you'll be pretty much directly in front of a tower in the background). Hold up until you hear a weird grunting noise. After a few seconds, Konami Man will zip by and you can snag him! We've yet to find any valid use for the pick-up and it does not appear in the item compedium, so we believe this is nothing more than a secret gag.

If you need a little bit more of a health boost at roughly halfway through the stage, when you see the Meat Strip food item sitting on a ledge behind the big, blue, flying Hammerhead Shark-looking creature, bash the edge of the ledge three times to find a Strawberry Doughnut and refill a bit of energy.

At this rate you should be full on HP (or really close to full) and ready to fight Dracula - if you've played Symphony of Night before, you should be very familiar with most of what goes on here ...

Form one - Extremely easy. As Dracula teleports, if he is not up against one of the walls, jump over him as soon as you can and wail away as fast as you can. Just watch his hellfire attack (multiple fireballs in a straight vertical line), because he uses his right arm to execute this and it puts his reach a little bit behind him. If he is up against a wall, jump above his head and spam your jump kick (down +A) repeatedly. In this instance, just be mindful of the inferno attack (the ground erupts with vertical columns of flame), because he will occasionally cast it right where he is standing. If your character can not jump kick, dodging is still easy once you get the patterns down - you can strike the hellfire or just jump over it; you can slide quickly away or just run away from inferno attacks; and his dark orbs can be dodged just by alternating between ducking and short jumping (obviously duck the higher orbs and jump the lower ones). One thing to note if you are playing co-op, as Dracula takes a good amount of damage, he will actually start to combine some of these attacks, such as streaming infernos across the room while tossing dark orbs at you.

Form two - Still very easy. If you are playing multiplayer, a great tactic to implement is to divide up, ensuring someone is at Dracula's back, free to wail away him (his back leg is a very meaty target to strike over and over). The most dangerous attacks to watch out for is his jump attack and laser. If Dracula lowers his arms and hunch down slightly, he is about to jump toward the other side of the room (if he is close to and facing a wall, he will almost always use this attack). What makes this dangerous is the green beams he shoots down while jumping - they will poison you and drain a good amount of HP. Learn to recognize the hunch he does before he jumps and you will basically never get hit by this. The laser beam is a very obvious attack where Dracula will channel a flash of light. If you are behind him, get all the way back to the wall as the laser will propel him almost all the way over to that side of the screen. If you happen to be in front of him, get against the wall and watch the specks of light channeling into the beam very carefully - once the final speck is sucked into the middle, double jump and get as much hangtime as you can and the beam should reduce and miss you before you hit the ground. Otherwise, he will also use a fireball attack that is obviously telegraphed by the fire forming at his mouth - he shoots it at the ground near his feet and it sends a wave of fire along the ground; just double jump it. In a few minor moves, if Dracula senses a bigger threat to his back, he will turn around. Also, on ocassion, he can make small hops into the air or shuffles for positioning that do not result in the aforementioned poison attack. This form makes Dracula a big target, so, just wail away at him and judge his attacks and you'll make short work of this form.

Final form - Form one and two were the first things you got to fight in Symphony of the Night and this final form was the final thing you got to fight in that game. In this form, Dracula will take up roughly half the width of the room. What is most annoying is the fact his two claws he positions outside of his body are completely invulnerable. This means you'll have to slide in to strike one of the form's three heads (or if you have certain weapons, you can hit multiple heads at once or double up your hits). The most important item to remember when facing this form is, if you don't have great weapons and armor from hard mode to withstand a number of hits, you can't be greedy or panic. Slide in, get in a handful of hits and GET OUT OF THERE. Time your slides carefully and do not stand up unless you know you won't touch any part of Dracula - in my first fight with Dracula, even just running into one of his heads or claws resulted in a painful 50-70 damage. If you are lucky, when Dracula goes to make an attack, he'll just slide to the left or right and try to snag you with his claw. This is definitely the one attack he has that doesn't have the potential to immediate cripple you and make you panic. For the most part, when you are not attacking, you are fairly safe along one of the walls. When you see Dracula build energy, get ready for a handful of devious attacks.

The least painful one is a summoning of more inferno attacks - this is one of the few instances where the walls may not be so safe, but still, the same tactics apply. If you see prisim triangles form at Dracula's heads, he will alternate tossing them at the different players in the current game (if you're on your own, obviously, they will all come at you). The confusing thing about this attack, is the way the prisims change in size as they fly toward you. This can sometimes cause you to mislead their trajectory, so just try to sucker Dracula into throwing them high by jumping up or low by ducking and avoid them. These are actually quite powerful so don't get hit by too many. You'll want to get toward the wall any time you see a pentagram appear, though, especially when Dracula summons his astral explosion - you'll know when this hits as about 80 percent of the screen will be filled with a red, nuclear-like explosion - DO NOT BE IN THIS! With this attack, the only safe spots are by the walls, so if you go there when you sense an attack, you won't get hit by it. Dracula also has an energy attack that operates similar to the ricochet rifle users during a bunch of the chapters - you'll see purple lines flash throughout the screen and you don't want any part of your body touching where you see a line. The tricky part about this attack, though, is not only does the energy shoot out, it also bursts in really small explosions, so you can still get hit by this even if you aren't standing where a line was. It may take a few tries to nail a spot down, but I place myself slightly away from one of the walls and crouch down. Once you see this attack a couple of times, you should be able to pin down where to go, which is very important. This attack is extremely damaging and since the skeleton form can't crouch, this spells big trouble for your time remaining as Dracula can easily demolish your dead teammates with this move (when a player is killed in skeleton form, the team receives a time penalty on the stage).

**Poetic Justice 15G = Defeat an ally who has been seduced by the enemy
I really thought an enemy like the sucubus could trigger this, but, from my experience, this has only happened while fighting Final Form Dracula with four or more players. At random, Dracula will initiate an attack that sends spades with a heart design inside of them in all directions. If a player is hit, there is a chance they will be seduced and start attacking teammates. Just beat the crap out of this player for the achievement.**

This form is not a pushover, but after you recognize his attack patterns, you'll eventually get through the battle and take this achievement. The gold chest Dracula leaves behind should also be a good bonus for your victory.

Hunter Legend - 30G
Completed Hard Mode
This will take some serious skill to pull off. I was able to do it thanks to the aid of my two friends Das Alucard and Wasabi Panda, but I would say the two biggest snags were chapters two and six.

Chapter two's stage is a breeze, but if you can not kill the puppets in time before the Puppet Master shoves them into the iron maiden, it's a guaranteed instant kill for anyone that gets swapped into the device. Since there are no damage counters for the puppets, I'm almost led to believe destroying these are based on a number of hits as opposed to a total damage, but I can't confirm that. I say this because after switching to a powerful set of knuckle weapons, I can beat the puppets on hard by myself without even breaking a sweat. To finally tackle the stage, we had four players and most of us equipped to raise our attack as high as possible. Just hack the blue puppets and you'll be fine.

As for Dracula ... well. In his first form, you'll notice a few variations - when he launches dark orbs, he'll launch a higher number at one time. It doesn't really matter, because the gameplay is still the same - get behind him or jump kick his face in if he is against a wall.

In his second form, honestly, I can't discern any differences here. Use the same game play and don't get poisoned!

Now, for his final form. Here, Dracula gets really creative and mixes his devistating attacks together. The two big ones - if you see the floor lining up all the way across with inferno flames, get in between them and DO NOT JUMP. Not only does he fill the screen with infernos, but Dracula will also fill the entirety of the middle of the screen with electricity. If you learn to recognize the approach to this attack, you won't have to worry about it. On the other hand, if you see inferno flames gathering only at the ends of each room, be very careful - the very instant these disperse, Dracula will bomb the middle of the room with his astral explosion, and, on hard, this is an instant kill. If you get the timing down, you can dash back to the side and avoid the explosion, but if you have to get by anything in this attack, make damn sure you get hit by the inferno flames and not the explosion. The brief moment of invincibility you get from being hit should allow you time to get away from the explosion, if anything.

Everything else has been the same so far, but I will note I have not yet been able to fight Hard Dracula with more than three people, so I am not sure how the seduction attack my possibly vary. Being on hard, Dracula is just a really strong jerk that will suck your health down to almost nothing with just the simplest of attacks. If you get defeated, don't get discouraged - take a look at what items you got from the level and keep improving your stats. After a while, you'll get the patterns down and it won't matter how strong Dracula is if he can't touch you. After you put him down, enjoy the achievement and the nice item drop.

Slick Kick 10G = Defeat a boss by sliding
Boned 20G = Defeat a boss with five players in skeleton form
Grim Synergy 10G = Defeat a boss by using a dual crush
I have these three achievements grouped together for one explanation. In actuality, you can just do what the descriptions for the achievements say as they are pretty straight forward. A slide is performed by holding down to crouch and pressing A; players turn into skeleton form when they die (so, basically, the achievement is "have a full six-player game room where only one person survives the stage"); a dual crush is performed by pressing the R trigger when standing next to a teammate and the prompt appears (a large amount of MP from both characters is also required). These can occur very naturally through gameplay, but you can force these achievements along a little as well.

To do these easily, progress through a good amount of the game (even a little into hard mode wouldn't hurt), get some good armor and weapons/spells/items/whatever and revisit chapter one on the normal difficulty. The enemies will be extremely weak by this point and it is now super easy to arrange for these achievements.

For Slick Kick, damage the boss until it collapses the bridge and then whittle it down with slide attacks. If you hit its ankles enough, you can break its shackles and do more damage with your slides.

For Boned, have at least one strong player focus on reaching and killing the boss. The other players can die at the boss or (especially if they are too strong) kill themselves on spikes in the lower portion of map past the pendulmns and chill safely by spawning book in the lower-right corner (make sure you clear the enemies out of here first, though). Just use caution if you become a skeleton - they only have 100 HP and dying in skeleton form results in a huge time penalty. As long as the surviving player has good weapons and armor, they will practically be able to beat the boss with their eyes closed. Just make sure every other member of the party is dead before the surviving player strikes the final blow. This achievement is universal and it will be awarded to everyone in the game, not just the surviving player.

For Grim Synergy, arrange for the achievement with another player. Again, it helps to revisit chapter one on normal with good weapons and armor and blow through the stage. You can damage the boss until it breaks the bridge and then use dual crushes until it is defeated.

Pack Rat 20G = Collect 300 different types of items
Wicked Deep Pockets 20G = Amass 1,000,000 Gold
Slaughtervania 20G = Rack up 10,000 enemy kills

Just through natural play, after 17 hours played as Alucard, I have about 500,000 Gold, 5,000 kills and 170 items, puttling me roughly halfway. So, in other words, you'll need to grind, grind, grind, grind, grind, grind and grind. If you really like this game, it shouldn't be too much of an issue, just some dedication. If you take in the full experience of the game, using all five characters, you might get these naturally after tackling some of the characters, playing through chapters one through six on normal and hard difficulties.

If you're pushing for items, pick up everything, collect all the chests and buy everything in the store. This calls for 300 TYPES of items, so, even if you have nine potions, that still only counts as one item type. A number of items are character-exclusive, so, again, tackle the game with other characters as your inventory is universal to your game save and all five of your characters share the same pool of inventory.

If you are shooting for gold, tackle the hardest levels you can. Chapter six on hard difficulty gives highly salable items that you can pawn duplicates of and just the treasure room alone has three red chests that always have 1,000 G each in them. You earn gold by picking it up (dropped coins, chests) or by selling items. For this achievement, you have to do these things and do them a lot. Currently I am at 700,000 Gold and no one I know has this achievement yet - this leads us to believe, you have to have the full million on you at one time.

On kills, this might be the easiest of the three to rush, thanks to corridors and shafts with endlessly spawning Medusa heads (chapter six) that are easily killed by most anything with one hit. If you have the patience for this, you might rack up some kills faster, but, again, this is another instance of just doing something many, many times.

If you stick with the game for the long run, these will no dobut come natural, but we'll see what tricks people come up with to speed this up.

using subweapons will make johnathan stronger and fyi for the other characters

Shanoa: use her spells like crazy to lvl them up
Charlotte: absorb the same spell overand over again(NOTE, this can only be done one time to a single enemy so absorb,kill and move on to the next enemy) to make her melee and magic stronger
Soma:collect lots and lots of souls so basicly kill stuff
Alucard: just play the game and use your magic alot

Can anyone look at Das Alucard's Chapter 6 replay video (the top in the Leaderboards) and tell me what weapon he's using?! He cleared through the level on his own in 8 minutes and change and knowing how he did it would make it so much easier when it comes time for Hard.

edit...nevermind...tried it with jonathan and got it on the first skeleton

Try to hit the bones when they are in FRONT of your characters so the bone do a vertical shot to the side

Lifeguard - You can also revive a person from their tombstone.

Bone Cold Justice I'm fairly certain you can't use a blade based weapon on these (bones). You need to use fists/tonfu, at least ... in my experience.

Pack Rat 20G = Collect 300 different types of items
Wicked Deep Pockets 20G = Amass 1,000,000 Gold

You can essentially work on these long term achievements in unison by selling all items, except for 1 to the store after each level and alternating characters to get more unique items. (At least I assume other characters have other items to collect).

Slaughtervania 20G = Rack up 10,000 enemy kills
There has to be a "best spot" to do this, however there may not be one as I don't think _anything_ ever respawns in this game, maybe those floating heads that go up and down (sin wave).

Boned - Does anyone know how much time is taken off after a skeleton dies? This one is pretty self explanatory but the exact time reduction (I guess 5 minutes) would be nice to know.

"I'm almost led to believe destroying these are based on a number of hits as opposed to a total damage" - Very good deduction, I can't confirm/deny but it sounds right. In any event I suggest using Knuckles, Tonfu, or Combat Knife as I can make peoples jaw drop with the DPS of a combat knife (even though it's only 10 dmg).

Good write up, now clean the formatting *wink* ;)

When a skeleton dies, a minute is taken off the time.

Easiest strategy (and I haven't implemented this myself because I haven't played with 5 others) is to do Chapter 1. Have 5 others die, then have one person nuke the boss, preferably Shanoa because she's broken. If someone wants to invite me to try this, I'm all for it.

His Alucard uses a weapon with a Japanese name that I can't think of at the moment. I can ask him tonight, but it is basically an evolution of the Masumune sword that hits faster and for more damage. I know for a fact he got that weapon on chapter 6, hard difficulty, because he got it during our stretch to beat hard Dracula before the game released to the public. The best weapon I've been able to pull so far is the Fists of Tulkas, but it has no reach, like his sword has. I guess I just need to raise my luck and go back to doing chapter 6 on hard.

I think it's even easier to jump on a partner, i did it this way :)

You know, I didn't really think of that obvious point. I started out playing single player because it was hard to find players last Friday and the bone pillars were the easiest way I found. Talking to people later, I found a lot of people just did it on the first boss, but this would make a lot of sense as well.

As for the notes on Bone Cold Justice, I used the default short sword Alucard uses and I've even done deflections with the Masamune and other, much stronger weapons. For some reason, I seem to have better luck doing this while jumping forward. I can't say it really matters, but that's just from a personal perspective. In my attempt to get this for myself, I got it on the second bone thrown and, last night, I got it on my girlfriend's account on my first try. It's just really random and weird, but, like I said, each time I did it, I used a jumping attack.

I never really pay attention, but I know a skeleton death can take way more than just one minute away. I almost wonder if it is a scale, where the first skeleton death is an "x" penalty, but the next one increases to a "y" penalty, etc. Maybe I'll actually pay attention to it tonight, but I've seen a death whittle away multiple minutes at one time.

Not sure if this has been said so I apologize if it has but, "Bone Cold Justice" can be gotten very easily just by starting the game as Soma (he starts with the bone spell) and throwing a bone at a skeleton to kill them, I got the achievement completely by accident doing this, I didn't even know it was an achievement; no deflect is required.

I wanted to confirm that it's HITS, NOT DAMAGE, that count against the Puppet Master's dolls. My team was getting pwned until I equipped Mach Punch. The doll went down in a second or two of the Mach Punch. Made the boss much easier on Hard Mode. Indeed, beatable.

In the room with this second Final Guardian, you'll see a staircase leading to a second floor above the Guardian, where a Nova (green) Skeleton guards a blue chest. Jump and strike at the ceiling roughly around where the skeleton was until you see a section start to crumble as you strike it. After three strikes, you'll discover a secret room, that contains a purple ("good items!") chest and on the table at the right of the room sits a group of Truffles which gives you an astounding 200 HP boost. The setback is, though, you have to have at least one other person with you to reach this secret room. Just have your teammate sit still and jump kick his/her head to get a boost and double jump in.


You can do this solo as Alucard. Time your double jump to the left really well followed by Mist form (RB). Works really well when trying to farm this level solo.

Not sure if this has been said so I apologize if it has but, "Bone Cold Justice" can be gotten very easily just by starting the game as Soma (he starts with the bone spell) and throwing a bone at a skeleton to kill them, I got the achievement completely by accident doing this, I didn't even know it was an achievement; no deflect is required.

Yea please add this to the guide, obviously the easiest way to achieve that.

For the record, I did try this and did not get the achievement. I did have level 4 bone however. So I think it only works with level 1 maybe.

Wicked Deep Pockets 20G = Amass 1,000,000 Gold

Currently I am at 700,000 Gold and no one I know has this achievement yet - this leads us to believe, you have to have the full million on you at one time.
This is terrible...

Can anyone look at Das Alucard's Chapter 6 replay video (the top in the Leaderboards) and tell me what weapon he's using?! He cleared through the level on his own in 8 minutes and change and knowing how he did it would make it so much easier when it comes time for Hard.

not sure if you got the answer but the sword he uses is the yasutsuna. i got it from a random chest grinding chests in chapter 5 hard (took about 3 hours). i got it from the exact chest on the left hand side of the map that has 2 big flames by it and you can shut 1 off if you have someone playin with you. i actually got all the other chests and then just went over and got hit by the saw enemy and went through the flames then got the chest then just died. i have used this to run a bunch of people through hard as it kills everything fast. keep note that soma can use this also and its strong but he cant swing it super fast like alucard can.

id also like to add i sent a super friendly message to Das Alucard to ask him what sword it was and its been 3 days with no reply. pretty shitty if you ask me. guess some people dont like helping others.
