Beautiful, Yet Deadly 30
Defeated Round 5's Mona & Lisa single-handedly with Blaze in Streets of Rage.
Using Blaze, get yourself to stage 5 using level select or playing through. You will get to a boss fight with Mona & Lisa, Blaze's twin sisters. They can be annoying to defeat as they jump around a lot. A good tactic is to wait until they jump at you then move back and attack them when they land. Utilize your special attack to drain some health before you finish them off.
Cat-like Reflexes 20
Performed a recovery after being thrown in Streets of Rage.
When you are being thrown, you need to press
so you land on your feed. The guys in the yellow coats on SOR1 will try to throw you a lot, as will Mona & Lisa on stage five. The window for pressing it is pretty small, but you will be thrown quite a bit so won't be much of a challenge. It is advisable to go for the other achievements and come back to this if you don't have it at the end.

Threw an enemy in Streets of Rage
For this achievement, you also need to let an enemy grab you from behind. Once they have you grabbed, press the D-Pad in desired direction and the attack button at the same time to throw the enemy.
A very easy way to unlock this achievement is to start up a two player co-op game. Right as the game starts, stand there and have player two walk up behind you and grab you (looks like a warm hug from behind). Once they have you grabbed, press the D-Pad in the desired direction and the attack button at the same time to throw the enemy

(or whatever you have assigned for special) with each character. In SOR 2 and SOR 3, you need to do the
attacks, the offensive specials (
) and the the blitz attacks (
). You need to do this for every character in every game. You can exit out pressing
after each character if you so wish, it will still recognize that it has been done.

Cleared every game

to save to make sure the game registers the fact you have reached the end.
A Hair's Breadth 40
Saved General "The Chief"Peterov single-handedly with Zan in Streets of Rage 3.
This is for getting to Peterov before he dies. Remember for SOR3, the Japanese ROM will make this easier. Getting to him is pretty easy to do, but the quickest route is as follows:
As soon as you waste the robots, head left into the elevator and head down twice
. Go right into the room, kill the two mooks and go into the middle
door. Clear the room, kill the mooks again after exiting then go up one floor.
Kill the two gunmen and head into the middle
door again. This room is a carbon copy of the previous one. Once you clean house, dash right to the Chief. No need to kill the mooks.
This achievement will unlock as soon as stage 7 starts up. You can use any character for this.
