----------------------------------------------------
Intro:
The King of Fighters XIII is the latest installment in the KOF series which carries off what the unfavorable XII left off; it also brings an end to the Ash Saga, which is the main focus of the Story.

General Achievement Note: Many of this games achievements can be unlocked in specific game modes, check the achievements for further details. Also, a little tidbit, the achievement names are based off the characters’ KO quotes or something else.

How To:
KOF, as always, is a 3 on 3 tag team fighter, but in 1 on 1 match-ups every round. Also has Single Play (Versus only) for regular 1 on 1 match-ups every round.

Controls:
=Low Punch, =High Punch, =Low Kick, =High Kick, =2P, =2K, =Roll, =Blowback

Step 1: Starting Up

First things first, start playing the tutorial mode first for those who are beginners to KOF or just for those who want the achievement and see how the gameplay mechanics work, after that, play Arcade Mode where you’ll get these achievements, note that it will take 2 playthroughs in order to unlock Billy and Saiki (human form) and to also earn the tough achievements too, here’s what you’ll earn for these achievements towards Arcade.

1. Hey, Hey, Hey!
2. Great!
3. You can’t win against me!
4. Time will soon turn to ashes...
5. After all, you're just trash.
6. How was it?
7. This is... my victory!
8. Any other Misc. Achievements. (Target Actions, Super Finishes, Etc.)

Step 2: Customization and Online

Next up, go to Customize Mode to earn 2 achievements from there such as “It's about time to start!” and “Here I come, buddy!” and then right after that, you’ll start off with the online mode, where now the achievements for online is a bit reasonable than in KOF XII, of course, like certain online fighting games, there will be achievements that you have to win certain matches in a row and also get a certain number of wins and matches played. Here’s what you’ll earn for these achievements towards online play. Note that some of these are boostable with another player.

1. Okay!
2. Number 1
3. Yeah! I did it!
4. Yeah!
5. This was just a greeting!
6. Doesn't it feel good?
7. Isn't this fun, eh?
8. Excellent!
9. Let's play warrior!
10. Go easy on me!
11. Good!
12. Hehe... hot, wasn't it?
13. I shall not waver!

Step 3: Extras and Conclusion

After getting all the online achievements done, there’s the last set, and may be the difficult achievements to earn (the Mission Modes preferably), first off, if you have a 2nd controller ready or rather do it in Arcade mode, since your gauge will always fill up fast, you can get the Misc. Achievements done, such as the Target Actions (Arcade Mode only), Perform certain moves/finishes, and cancels. Then getting all those done will be the Extra modes such as Time Trial (up to 10 matches long), Survival (infinite matches), and the most challenging mode, Trials Mode. There is also Story Mode, in which the events of KOF XIII take place within cinematics and there are 5 possible routes and getting it complete 100%.

You're not so bad! - 10
Complete the tutorial

Simply complete the Tutorial, the Tutorial is a game mode which pretty much is a how-to-play kind of mode with 2 systems, the Basics and the Gauge system.

It's about time to start! - 10
Register an icon, team and message in Customize

Go to Customize and then add an Icon, your reserved team, and a message for online match-ups. It will unlock once you do all 3 of those actions.

Here I come, buddy! - 20
Create 10 characters in Customize

Although the description may be misleading, it’s supposedly to tell you to make 10 custom colors for color edit, but it must be done with 10 separate characters. Start with Elizabeth and finish it with Terry, of course, you don’t actually have to edit them, just save and exit.

Hey, hey, hey! - 20
Be challenged by "Billy" and win in ARCADE

The requirements to fight Billy Kane are to not continue and to get around 20+ Target Actions on average, Billy will face you as your 4th opponent in Arcade Mode, win the match and you’ll unlock him.

Great - 20
Be challenged by "Saiki" and win in ARCADE

The requirements to fight normal Saiki are to not continue and to get around 40+ Target Actions on average, Saiki will face you as your 4th opponent in Arcade Mode, win the match and you’ll unlock him.


You can't win against me! - 20
Be challenged by "Ash" and win in ARCADE

The requirements to fight Ash Crimson are to not continue, and to get around more than 60+ Target Actions on average, Ash will face you as your 6th opponent in Arcade Mode, win the match and you’ll unlock the achievement.

How was it? - 30
Clear ARCADE MODE without continuing

Arcade Mode comprises of 8 stages plus 2 secret fights (either against Billy or Saiki before st.4 and Ash before st.6) if triggered, although the game may rather easy the first 6 fights, you may have trouble beating Boss-Type Saiki and Dark/Evil Ash, but they’re really easy, press D+HK the moment they get up or at the right moment, they will block sometimes, but proven to work, also, make sure not to continue though. (Can be done in any difficulty.) An easier way is to not get less than 25 million before st.6 so you don't have to fight the bosses, since this also works.

This is... my victory! - 40
Clear ARCADE MODE on VERY HARD

If you’re going for the How was it? Achievement, and if you have the skill, it means just beating the game on the Very Hard difficulty, but you must go to the Options menu and change it first. Same actions apply on the "How was it" achievement as well.

Looks like I was just on time. - 10
Clear Time Attack mode for the first time

Self-Explanatory, just beat time attack with any one character, best if you start with Kyo first. Note: Time Attack is 10 Stages long, although, if you lose, you’ll have to start over.

You can't compare to me. - 40
Clear Time Attack mode with 30 characters

Same as “On Time”, but it requires you to beat it with 29 other characters after that, after finishing it with Kyo, start with Benimaru and then on. Note: Same rule for Time Attack still applies.

I will execute my mission! - 10
Defeat 3 characters in Survival mode

See:I'm enough for this job!

I'm enough for this job! - 30
Defeat 35 characters in Survival mode

Survival Mode, as always in fighting games are your typical gauntlet kind of mode (lose and the game is over), in this you’ll have to beat 3 for starters and then beat 35 which include the bosses as well. Daimon's Earthquake Special move makes it easier.

That should do it! - 30
Complete all trials for 1 character in Trial mode

Simply complete 1 characters’ complete set of Trials, the easiest one to do is Maxima’s Trials. DLC characters also count towards it.

Yes! I'm the best! - 50
Clear 200 trials in Trial mode

Simply complete 200 trials in Trial mode, since there are around 36 characters with 10 Trials each, pick the characters that are most suitable and easier to use and perform the trials with them. For a video check of trials, head to VesperArcade's YouTube Channel to see them all. Also, you must get a Trial Completion rate of 60% to unlock this. DLC characters also count towards it, but doesn't decrease Trial Completion rate though.

Number 1! - 30
Get 5 consecutive wins in a ranked match

See:Yeah! I did it!

Yeah! I did it! - 40
Get 10 consecutive wins in a ranked match

Like all fighters with achievements, getting a certain amount of wins in ranked matches might be tough for some people, retrospectively, you must get 2, 5, and 10 wins in a row in Ranked matches, lose a match, and you’ll have to start over. Note that this might be very difficult to obtain since the matchmaking works like MVC3/3SO though. Of course though, easier way now is although cheap, you can RQ/DC (exit to dashboard) to save you streak, make sure your 3rd teammate doesn't get KO'd beforehand.
----------------------------------------------------
Example of an Easy set of Trials, Like Maxima's here...

----------------------------------------------------
And for those new to KOF, watch this vid here, it should work the same for KOF XIII and the rest of the previous entries.

Don't forget Daimon's light shoryuken is a GREAT tool in hard, just run away and spam those earthquakes as the AI doesn't jump and takes the damage gladly

Is the guide finished?
Telling people to simply do this and easily do that isn't good enough, explain fully how to do things as if you were taking someone through the game for the first time and EXPLAIN what each achievement requires you to do.

Haha, "Simply". Well maybe to an extent since there are 360 trials total correct? Not to mention there are DLC characters that will be added(with trials) so their first few should help give leeway as well right?

I havent played this game yet but if you can get at LEAST the first 5 trials done with each character you can have 180 done. Wait on those DLC characters for your last 20 trials and you can unlock this with minimum problems! This method works for those non-extremists in combo trials for fighting games.

And Neo, once Vesper finishes all the character trial videos, you think you'll replace the Hard Edge Link with Vesper's? Maybe just throw them both up there since both guys make exceptional combo guides!

Can't wait to play this!

Speaking of trials, has anyone done Elisabeth's no.3?

Cos i swear i'm going to Buster Wolf my TE stick in the process of trying to complete it.

"Jump in D, close standing C, qcf+B/D~ hcb-f+A/C"

I can do the qcf+/B/D into command grab every single time with no issue OUTSIDE of a link, but to 2 in 1 this from just a standing C is giving me a f****** headache now.

Anyone know if there is any particular trick to linking this that i'm not seeing?
