Awesome job, guys. Looks like we have a complete list now, so I've changed the thread title and stuck this. I'm renting this today, so this will be a big help for me, and everyone else as well. :)

p.s. I deleted your other one and added your thanks to the bottom of this one. ;)

If you were Homer as soon as you turn out of the simpsons house go left, then opposite the church is a Supermarket, and behind that is a Brown slope, just try and jump up it.

Kinda hard to explain.

You just spent three hours to get one item, life well spent.

How to obtain: Get a certain Duff Bottlecap or Krusty Koupon in Yokel Snatcher.

Is it near beginning of the level or the end? This is the only one I have yet to get

Bio-Strike
11-08-2007, 04:53 AM
I'm not sure if it's any Koupon or duff cap but I got mine at the beginning. I believe it's somewhere behind you and I know there're two hooks you have to 'grapple' to.

SplazarGod
11-10-2007, 07:26 PM
I got it on my 1st play through, so my mind is blankish, buyt I remeber getting it on a Krusty koupon. I would just go for all the Koupons and Duff caps since there's only 3/4.

Comet
11-11-2007, 02:52 AM

At the very start of the level there is a brown truck right up against a building, all you do is use Bart to grappel onto the hook above the truck and grab the Krusty coupon.



5. Combo Punch
Hello, street fighter 2 called, it wanted its gameplay back.

How to obtain: Hit a Combo Punches (X, X, Y) on every person competing in the Eating contest, on Around The World in 80 bites.

and for that one its not combo punch everyone, you need to perform 20-30 combo punches, and it doesn't matter who you punch.

It seems that when i gained this cliche, all i did was to jump on an awning in France. I didn,t do any Trampolines or awnings anywhere else. So maybe its just a "particular" one that you must use. I definately gained this in the first area. Just try to jump on all awnings!

lostmotiv
01-05-2008, 05:22 AM
ya all i did was find any awning in france and just jump on it over and over till the cliche popped up. took maybe 4 attempts.

01-12-2008, 12:20 AM
Damn, I made that one in Springfield where you have to go up the slope much harder then it was like a few of you have. I kept trying to go up the slopes directly behind the store and the ones where there is an invisible wall. Then finally realized they meant the little slope.

SoaringEagle
01-15-2008, 02:14 PM
Is it near beginning of the level or the end? This is the only one I have yet to get

its right in the beginning man, its the krusty piece that is above the truck RIGHT WHEN YOU START off, in the first area. just grapple to the light post above it and you will land on the truck . :D

Actually it seems to me that both descriptions are wrong. Underneath the "SequelStop" sign beside the grocery store there is some dirt. Try walking up it and voila, cliche.

5. Combo Punch

When you get 20-30 combo punches does the chiche pop up as soon as u get them or doesi t pop up at the end of the level?

it pops up after you combo punch all 7 other people in the stage. the 6 your racing with and then willie half way through the level. just do each person once and itll pop up during the last one. took me a while cuz i kept punching the same 6 over and over till i remembered that i was going to be traped by willie later in the level. :)

#29. A lot of descriptions are vague. Here is a better one that worked for us.

Across from the Church in the Back of the Grocery there is a billboard. Attempt to jump the dirt underneath the billboard. Just try to wall walk, after a couple double jumps it will unlock!

Hopefully that clears up any confusion on this number I saw prior in the thread.

I needed to post this so that hopefully it will help someone. On the Medal of Homer Cliche for jumping on the trampoline, I went through the level 5 times, for various reasons, and didn't get it. Then I started focusing on the Cliche, and I bounced on all sorts of the trampolines and awnings for a half an hour and it didn't unlock. Finally, I went over and bounced on one awning I don't believe I had bounced on before and it unlocked. It's straight ahead from where you start(not the one immediately to the left). It's on the ground level of the east side of a building in the middle of the map.

Hope that helps someone.

the elemental cliche will not unlock for me, tried for like half an hour and killed like 30 ice sumos but no like. I tried letting both characters die and tried exiting and re-entering but no luck. I can't remember if I killed a fire sumo(I froze a couple and flicked some others) could this be why?

damn this is annoying.... any help?

Edit: Replayed the level made sure I killed a fire and ice then got it.
