Nightmare of Lesphia - 25

You can't miss it.

Legendary hierophant - 40
To complete the Story mode with all characters (with the highest difficulty)

To unlock this achievement, complete Story Mode for all 24 characters on Expert difficulty.
I won't lie, this is the hardest achievement in the game. The AI is very good at pulling off difficult and non-stop combos on you while you are helpless to fight back.
It will be a long and frustrating road, but here are a couple of tips to help you along the way:

- You can use another character up until Golba, just as long as it is the character you want to finish Story Mode that finishes Golba off.
- Find out which character you are best with and can maneuver around the most with. This will help a lot. Trust me.
- Combos are difficult, hard to pull off and aren't guaranteed to work or hit, and that might mean the difference between life and death. The same result can be achieved quicker by exploiting sidestepping and landing a Strong Hit (/) with much less frustration and time spent. Rimururu works best with this strategy, as she is very fast.
- An easy way to beat Draco even on Expert is to stay at mid-range. When he kneels down to shoot at you, sidestep the blast and rush in, pressing either or . Rinse and repeat until he is dead.
- Golba is easier than Draco. He has many attacks that keep him still after he uses them, so take advantage of this. Sidestep his attacks and get in couple of your own, preferably a Strong Hit ( or ). The basic Throw (), then Unblockable Attack (), then Unblockable Attack () seems to work here too, for the most part.
- You cannot use Draco or Golba in Story Mode, so don't waste time unlocking them on an easier difficulty to use on harder difficulties.


Secret Achievements
Cacodemon Roza - 60
To win in Xbox LIVE fighting for 100 times (in Ranked match)

To get this achievement, you will need to win 100 Ranked Xbox LIVE matches.
The online community is (and always has been) pretty much dead, so doing this legitimately is nigh impossible. However, this also means that it is incredibly easy to set up a boosting match. You can even choose the host you want from the 'Custom Match' screen to more easily find your partner.
The game also keeps track of your Ranked wins and shows you after each match.

Sisters's fight - 10
Nakoruru fights against Rimururu (in Ranked match)

In a Ranked Xbox LIVE match, have one person pick Nakoruru and another pick Rimururu. The achievement will unlock for both people after one round regardless of who wins.

The rule of Ninja - 10
Sogetsu fights against Kazuki (in Ranked match)

SNK, I love you -1
Type in "SNK" in NAME ENTRY screen under Story mode

In the scoring screen after finishing Story mode for a character, in the upper-left corner of the screen, you should be able to input three letters as a name. Simply type in 'SNK' as the name and you will have your glorious 1.

Always by your side - 0
Two sides in the fight die simultaneously

This achievement will unlock when you get a Draw, or when you and your opponent die at the same time. This can be unlocked in any mode.

The easiest way to do this is to go into Versus mode with two controllers and have both pick Haohmaru. Get both characters down to as little health as possible. Then, facing each other, simultaneously press on both controllers and they should both strike at the same time, resulting in a draw and a shiny new zero-pointer achievement.
